IT 18 A PEERLESS SHIP.
Superiority of tho Indiana Over the
Siuco Dec. 19, whou the new first-'
class barbette battleship Magnificent
of tho British navy was launched at
Chatham dock yard, tho exports on
shipbuilding of all couutries havo
devoted a good deal of tlmo in com
menting upon aud criticising tho
They havo almost without oxeop
tiou used tho French ship Sardegna
and tho American battleship Iudi
aua as their standards of compari
son, though some havo used tho bat
tleships Re Umberto of Italy nnd
tho Royal Sovereign of Great Brit
ain. Even the Euglish constructors
who have spoken of tho Magnificont
havo agreed tint the enthusiastic
English constructor who slated that
tho Magnificent was tho most power
ful vossol nlloat, was wrong, and al
most without exception thoy point
to tho Indiana, now building by
Messrs. Cramp of Philadelphia, as
one superior to tho Magnificont.
Tho Indiana is not yet afloat, but
before summer sho will be Hying hor
commission pennant aud somo Amer
ican naval officers say that sho will
bo worthy of tho titlo that tho Eng
lishmen bestowed on tho Magnifi
cent that is, "the mo3t powerful
As a matter of fact a comparison
of tho respective merits of tho Mag
nificent aud tho Indiana appears un
just to tho latter, for the Indiana
was designed aud contracted for in
President Harrison's administration,
nnd tho appropriation for tho Mag
nificent was not mado by parliament
until 1893, and so tho latter has
overy reason to be, and is, moro mo
dern than her American rival.
Leaving aside, however, the im
provements of tho last fow years for
comfort of otlleors aud men and tho
little details of mechanism, aud
viewing the Iudianaaud Magnificent
purely as engines of war, tho Indi
ana is, in tho opinion of shipbuild
ers, tho better vessel of tho two.
Tho principal dimensions of tho
Magnificont are: Length between
perpendiculars, 890 foot ; lougth over
all, 120 foot. Her oxtromo breadth
is 75 foot; tho vessel's mean draught
is27i feet. Tho displacement is 11,
In the matter of engine:', the Brit
ish ship has our triple expansion en
gines, which, with their twin screws,
aro supposod to develop a spood un
der natural draught of sixteen and
ono-half-knots and under a forced
draught from seventeen aud one
half knots. Her coal-carrying capa
city is 18,000 tons.
Armor aud battery aro tho things
upon which tho claim of superiority
aro based, and thoy aro certaiuly
bettor than any ship ovor boforo
built iu foreign shipyards. It is in
tho matter of tho armor and battery,
howovor, that tho designers of tho
ludiana havo beou most particular,
and thoy say that tho ludiana is far
superior to hor English rival.
The Magnificent mounts foi r
tvyouty-two -.inch brooch-loading
rifles, twelve six-inch rapid fire, six -
toon twelvo-nounder ranid tiro, aud
twelve threo-pound rapid firo guus, '
or forty-four guns in all.
Out of this battery tho Maguifi- i
cent can fire eight guus either auead '
or astern, and with these eight guus j
- sho can throw 1G59 pounds of metal.
Hero tho Indiana s superiority is
demonstrated. Her battery consists ,
of four thirtoon-inch breech-loading
rifles, eight 8-inch breech-loading
rifles, four six-inch aud twenty six
pounder rapid-firo guns, making in ,
all thirty-six guus, or oight less Chan
With theso, howovor, sho can
throw 4981 pounds of metal oithor
ahoad or astern, which is 3325 1
pounds moro than the English bat
tleship can throw. i
In tho matter of firing abeam tho ,
Indiana's superiority is demonstrat
ed by tho fact that with twenty-four i
guus tho Magnificent throws but I
8575 pounds; tho Amoricau ship, '
with four guns loss, throws CGG0
pounds, or 2095 pounds moro thau
tho Englishman's pride.
It requires tliroo minutes under
battlo conditions to firo ono round
from a twolvo or thirteen inch gun
aud tho ships would bo just equal
on this point, but in three minutes
tho Americau could throw 5376
pounds oithor ahoad or astorn aud
the Euglish ship could only throw
Firing aboam as fast as possiblo
with all available guns the Indiana
could throw 12,558 pounds, while tho
Magnificout's score would bo but
As regards armor, tho thickest
portion of tho Magnificont'b is four
toon inches aud tho Indiaua has
oighteeu inches of Harveyized steel
at hor thickest part. Tho stool used
iu both navios is practically tho
samo, and if thoro is auy proforenco
it must rost with tho American pro
duct, for tho Harvoy uiokoliug pro
coss is an American invention and
has been longer in uso on this side
of tho wator.
A fact which should, in tho opin-
ion of stoel experts, provo conclu
sively that American steel is tlio best
in the world is that tho Russian '
gnvornmont, after causing an ex
amination to bo made of tho stool
plants of all European countries,
awarded is contract for ship armor
to tho iron and stcol works in
With all of tho Magnificent's
forty-four guns trained seaward and
fired simultaneously sho would throw
a weight of metal the total of which
would bo 1295 pounds, while tho In- .
diana undor liko conditions would
throw 0920 pounds, or 3025 pounds
more tbnu tho English ship.
Speed is still a matter of conjec
ture, but both vessels are designed
for 17 knots, but neithor one has
yet demonstrated that sho will fulfill
tho requirements in this direction.
If precedent counts for anythiug,
though, tho Indiana will live up to
them, for ovory ship built by Cramp
& Sons lins oxcooded the contracted
spood by at least a quarter of a knot.
Some eonstructors regard it, as
vory romarkablo that tho Indiana,
which has 4679 tons less displace
ment than tho Magnificont, should
havo an equal coal-carrying capacity
and a hcavior battery and yet mako
tho samo speed, but this is due to ,
tho lightness of tho machinery.
Tho English guns aro gouerally
supposed to bo lighter than thoeo of
American mako by reason of the fact
that tho English use tho wiro-wouud
gun and tho American has tho built
up hoop gun.
American gun builders havo novo
beou ablo to mako a succoss of tho
wiro bound gun, but experiments
havo been made on it during late
Exports on gnu building, howovor,
state that there is vory little to chooso
betwoou the two stylos of guns. For,
while tho wiro-winding makes a
lighter gun the guns mado on tho
hoop plau last longer.
Taking tho two ships bit by bit
and comparing thorn the oflicers of
; the navy think that the advantages
tip tho scale toward the Indiana and ,
leavo America tho possessor of tho
most powerful vossel afloat.

Tho firm of Fringa & Spatz, Apia,
havo lost 5000 by violation of tho I
Arms and Ammunition Act. This is ,
owing to having boon found out, tho
Samoa Herald says, adding, "and
our only regret is that others hero
who havo beou equally guilty could
not bo equally punished."
