A strange sea n. nstcr is the battle
ship Oregon when viewed from the
platform surrounding her ponderous
irauie, about which circle swarms of
mechanics t'o busy to stop to talk and
too intent upon the W'rk of preparing
the big vessel for her first dip in the
N it. ra of the bay of San Francisco.
Planted finn'y up n the stocks sme
thuty feet above the surface of the
ground, the Oregon looks like a monster
turtle lying upon its back. There are
no gr.ii efnl line's or sweeping curves to
admire. Smiply a broad expanse of
riM ird iron idatcs gree the eye, im
pressing tin sight seeker with the
em rtnotis strength and snlhlily of the
battle ship. Viewed from a distance
ihe Oregon assumes a most attractive
appearance. Sttength and speed are
txatnpU8 d in every detail of her con
struction. The day of the launching of the
Oregon is drawing near. It has not
been definitely determined upon, but
it is ti"l veiy distant. Two of the fatrest
laughters of the Webfoot Slate have
been selected, to press the button that
shall send the big ship slipping down
if ways and to christen her in the
ItM of the people of the Pacific
Prelty Miss Kugciiia Shelby, daughter
ol Eugene sin by, assistant uperlntctv
nt ol Wells, l argo Co. s express at
rtland, will press the button, and
Miss Haisy Ainsworth, daughter of
Captain Ainsworth of the Atniwi rlh
National Hank, Portland, will do the
As a lighting ship the Oregon will be
apable of defending herc f in any
position. She can concentrate the fire
of six heavy guns on any point of
attack, and her stipplemcntarv batteries
ire stilttciently powerful, if locused
upon a given point of attack, to crush
in live-inch armor.
Naval experts claim that the 8 inch
and 6-inch rifles of the battle ship will
do more execution in an attack on a
rt or earthwork than her 13 inch
uns. The reason for this supposition
is that Stone or met.. I cannot resist the
instant concentrated fire of an S-inch
r 6-inch gun, as no time is allowed
1 he defense to recover from ihe shock
f a broadside from such a battery
before another round is fired. The
rapidity with which a battery of light
rifle guns can be handled offsets their
esser penetrative power.
The British gunboat 'letneraire
ilcin etl the Citadel at Alexandria by
the concern rated fire of its 6 and 8 inch
tins in a few hours' bombardment.
I bis same stronghold had been shelled
tor twenty tour boms by some of the
heaviest guns in the llri'.ish squadron
without any apparent effect
The battle-ship Oregon is built to
make a rapid fire at close range, and
win also be equipped to stanj off an
enemy at long range Ihe Oregon s
13-mch guns will be mounted in bar
bettes, and all lour of these can be
used for either a slat board or port
roadside. Secondary batteries of
rapid-fire Hotcbkiss and Getting guns
are mounted in the military top and the
uperstructure. About a dozen Iloich-
kisi rapid-fire cannon can be brought
to bear simultaneously upon an ap
proaching torpedo boa) or boarding
crew. . rtotcnkiss i.ipidiire uun
throwing a 6 or 14 pound conical bullet
an, in the hands ol an CXpenenced
tinner, be made to shoot with the ac
UraCV of an ordinary rifle in the hands
of a hunter. Four men usually consti
tute the cr. w of a rapid fire gun, and
these can load, aim and fire the piece
at the rate f aliout thirty shots a
minute and do good execution.
At Taltal, Chile, during the recent
revolution, the fourteen-pound rapid
lire guns of the torpedo cruiser AL
mirante Lynch silenced a land battery
of twenty f ur and sixty pounders in
The Oregon can have every available
structure ab .ve fur deek line and

bettes, shot away ;.nd be in as good
fighting trim as ever.
