On Octobor lGth tho battleship
Indiana, tho latost and most
powerful addition to tho navy of
tlio United Statos. was given
preliminary run ovor tlio official
courso near Boston harbor and so
successful was tho trial that whon
tlio boat rcachod tho uppor ond of
tho courso Edwin S. Cramp de
oidod that it was unnocessiry to
spoed her back again.
Tho Indiana got uudor way at
8:30 n. m. from Boston light and
started down tlio bay to Capo
Ann. At 8:50 tho ship was going
ahead nt full speed, and whon
about sevon miles from tho starting-lino
tlio forcutl draught was
turned on. Tho courso was from
Capo Ann to Boono Island, a dis
tance of thirty-ono knots, and was
marked by six can buoys at an
equal distance apart of G.2 knots.
Tho average speed for tho run up
Although tho Cramps oxpoctod
to do 15 knots easily with tho
boat, thoy wero moro than pleas
ed with the showing sho mado on
the run. The tide was running
against her rithur fast, and cutolf
probably thrco-quartors of a knot.
Tho engines ran ns smoothly us if
they had boen working for months,
and not tho slightest boating of
any of tho orosslio.ids or journals
Tho run of tho Indiana from
Philadelphia to Boston in the
nasty head Beas sho mot, and tho
run undor high prossuro, vindic
ated tho title of American naval
constructors and Amoricau ship
wrights as tho best in tho world.
Foreign critics havo doolared that
tho Indiana would bo topheavy,
and that sho would roll horself to
death in any sort ofsoa. Nevor
was prophecy moro absolutely re
futed. Tho Indiana, with tho
heaviest weight of armor nnd guns
above water of any ship in tho
world, rides tho seas liko a yacht.
In a recent issuo of tho San
Francisco Call thoro appearsn very
interostingcomparison of tho Indi
ana with tho now first class battlo
shipMagnificcnt of thoBritish navy
which was launohed at Chatham
dookynrd on the 19th of Decem
ber last. Sinco that timo tho ox
ports on ship-building of all coun
tries havo dovotod a good doal of
timo in commenting upon and
criticizing tho now vossol. Thoy
huvo almost without oxcoption
usod tho Fronoh ship Sardegna
and tho Amoricau battleship In
diana as thoir standard of compa
rison, though somo havo usod tho
battleships Ho Umberto of Italy
and tho Royal Sovoroign of Groat
Even the English contractois
who havo spokon of tho Magnifi
cent httvo agreed that tho enthu
siastic English constructor who
staled that tho Magnificont was
tho most poworful vossol afloat
was wrong, and almost without
oxcoption thoy point to tho In
diana ns ono superior to tho Mag
nificont. Tho Indiana will be
worthy of tho titlo Mint tho Eng
lishmen bestowed on the Magni
ficont that is, "the most power
ful vessel nlloat."
As a mattor ofj fact, a compari
son of tho rospoctivo morits of tho
Magnificont and tho Indiana ap
poars unjust to tho latter, for tho
Indiana was designod and con
tracted for in President Harrison's
administration; andtho appropri
ation for tho Magnificont was not
mado by Parliament until 1893,
HONOLULU, ILL. FRIDAY. NOVE,;, HI if,. 181)5.
and so tho latter has evory reason
to be. a ml is, moio modern than
her American rival.
Leaving nsido, howovor, tho
improvementsr'of tho lust low years
for comfort of officois and men
and tho little dotnils nf mechan
ism, ond viewing tho Indiana and
Magnificont purely an engines of
war, too Indiana is, in tho opin
ion of Bhip-buudors, the bottor
vousol of tho two.
Tlio principal dimensions of the
Magnificent aro: l.ongtli between
porpeudiculars, 390 feet; longth
ovor all, -120 foot. Hor cxtrotno
broadth is 75 foot; tho vessel's
moan drnught is 27 foot. Tlio
displucomtnt is 1-1,900 tons. In
tho matter of engines, tho British
ship litis triplo expansion engines,
which, with thoir twin scrowB, are
supposed to develop a speed un
dor natural draught of sixt-jon
and a half knots and under u
torcod draught from soventeeu
and a quarter to sovonteon and a
half knots. Hor coal-carrying
oapacity is 18,000 tons.
Armor nnd battery nro tho
things upon which tho claim of
superiority nro based, and they
aro cortainly bottor than any
ship ovor boforo built in foroicn
shipyards. It is in tho matter of
tho armor and battery, howovor,
that the designers of the Indiana
havo been most particular, and
thoy say that tho Indiana is far
superior to her bnglish rival.
Tho Magnificent mounts four
22-inch breech -loading ritles,
twelvo G-inch rapid firo, sixtoon
12-poundor rapid firo and twelve
,5-pouud rnpid-uro guns, or forty
four guns in all. Out of this bat
tery tho Magnificent can iiro eight
guns eitlior all cad or nstorn, and
wiui tneso oignt guns slio can
throw 1659 pounds of metal.
More tho Indiana s superiority
is demonstrated. Her bnttory
consists of four 13-inch breech-
loading riflos.oight 8-inch broeoh-
ioading rules, tour o-incli, twenty
G-poundor rapid-firo guns, making
in all thirty-six guns, or oight Iojs
than tho Magnificont. Vith
thoso, howovor, sho can throw
'1981 pounds of inotal oithor
ahoad or astern, which is 3325
pounds moro than tho English
battleship can throw.
In tho mattor of firing aboam
tho Indiana's superiority is de
monstrated by tho fact that with
twenty-four guns tho Magnificont
throws but 3575 pounds; tho Am
erican ship, with four guns less,
throws 5GG0 pounds, or 2095
pounds moro thm tho English
It requires threo minutes undor
battle conditions to firo ono round
from a twelvo or thirteen inch
gun and tho ships would bo just
equal on this point, but in threo
minutes tho American could throw
5370 pounds oither ahoad or ast
orn and tho English ship could
only throw 4491 pounds.
Firing aboam as fast as possible
with all availabloguns, tho India
na could tliDw 12,559 pounds,
whilo tho Mnguificont's scoro
would bo but 8140 pounds.
As rognrds armor, tho thickest
portion of tho Magnificent's is
fourtoon inchos and the Indiana
bus cightoeu inches uf Harvcyi.od
steol at hor thickest part. The
steal usod in both navies is practic
ully tho samo, and, if thoro is any
prtforenco, it must rest with thu
American product, for tho Hurvey
nickeling process is an American
invention and has boen linger in
uso on tins s-d- nf thts wufi't.

forty-four gm.i tinned iwiud
ami fired s in lutieously sho
would tlnow a vi ghl . f ti i t I
thu total uf wlneb w -uM b- -1295
pounds, while the Indiana under
liko conditions would throw G'.ViO
pounds, or 2G25 pounds moro than
tho English ship.
oomo constructors lvg'iid it n
very romnvkable that tho nliitui,
which has 4G79 tons less displace
ment than tlio Magnificent, should
have nn equal coil-carrying capa
city and a heavier I) ittory and vol
