ARMOR (UTE SETTLB
SENATOR LONG SETS
IT AT $241 A TON
Long Wangle Finally Ended by
Agreement with Carnegie and
in the World.
Washington, Novembi? IS.
Secretary Long to-day announced tho
conclusion of tho long controversy
over tho price of armor plate for naval
vessels and an agreement with tho
Cnrneglo and tho Bethlehem com
panies for Krupp armor at $420 a ton,
while tho possible addition of royalty
fees, making tho maximum price $455.
52 a ton. Tho amount of armor in
volvel Is tho largest ever placed at ono
tlmo by, tho Government, and Is said
to equal all tho armor purchased by
tho Government up to 1S9G. It covers
the armor for seventeen ships now In
various stages of construction, includ
ing eight battleships, six armored
cruisers and three protected cruisers.
Tho following official statement was
given out concerning tho agreement:
"Tho Navy Department has como to
an agreement with tho Carncglo and
Bethlehem companies for Krupp armor
of tho first class, amounting to 24,-
950 tons for $210 per ton.
"Tho Krupp process involves tho
Ilnrvcjy patent, tho validity of which
Is now under consideration by tho
courts, and it Is further agreed that
tho Government will assumo In nd.lt
tlon any liability for tho Krupp proc
ess not exceeding G or $24.32 a ton
for Krupp roynlty, and not exceeding
the United States license o of $11 20
for Harvey ronlty. The maximum
prliio lo tho nocrnmcnt Is. therefore),
J4C5.52 a ton, si )Jcct to diminution In
enso of any reduction In tho foregoing
royalties. Tho bid of theso companies
for this class of armor was $490, and
tho prlco originally asked was $545.
"Tho Mldvlllo Company somo tlmo
ago withdrew their bid, but they would
have been unable. In any eent, to fur
nish armor In duo season for tho
Maine class of battle-ships. Had they
not withdrawn their bid, it Is probab'.o
that somo nrrangement might have
been inado for tho distribution among
tho three companies of tho manufac
ture of armor other than tho Maine
class. Their bid, however, wns of
valuo In enabling tho department to
sccuro tho abovo largo reduction."
Admiral O'Neill. Chief of tho Bu
reau of Ordnance, said of tho result:
"Tho agreement Is most satisfactory,
Tho terms aro reduced, not only to n
rcaBonablo point, but moro than reas
onable. Wo get armor cheaper than
any country In tho world."
Tho armor contract covers not only
tho 21,950 tons specified In tho official
statement, but also some 10,000 tons
of armor of tho second and third class,
which has not been In controversy, but
has been dependent on tho disposal f
tho flrBt-class armor. Tho cntlro
amount, approximately 35,000 tons. Is
now- mado available Now specifica
tions havo been prepared by tho Navy
Department showing In detail tho
tests, times of delivery, etc. Thcro Is

of men are employed and much blast
ing Is done In order to obtain holdlug
ground for the flume framework.
John Soetes, a luna under Mr. Han

On Tuesday the work was progressing
satisfactorily until It became necessary
to "spread" a piece of lava. The usual
quantity of powder with, fuso and cap
was inserted out tne cnarge railed to
explode. Hanneberg and Soetes walk
ed to the place and tho latter withdrew
the fuse and Inserted a new piece and
together the men walked away, both,
however, looking back to see If there
was any sign of tho fuse burning.
When twenty feet away Soetes remark
ed that the thing would not burn and
both men stopped for a moment. Soetes
then went oer to tho blast and just
as he stooped over tho explosion took
place. Hanneberg threw himself on
tho ground as Soetes shot up Into the
air, his body turning like a cart wheel.
When Hanneberg recoered from the
shock ho ran to where Soetes had fal
len and found that one-half of his head
and ono arm had been blown off.
Word was sent to town at onco and
Doctor Held went out and mado an ex

which was reported to tho sheriff.

The remains wero brought to Hllo

ing Islam Temple of the Mystic Shrln
crs held a special session for the double
purpose of Introducing thirteen strang
ers to the mjsterles of tho Orient, as

to tho banquet hall, where Recorder
Hiram T. Graves acted as master of

The Kmperor of Austria asserts him

question Is purely ppolltlcnl, and for
eign to tho vocation of tho archbishop,
tho chief of the cabinet was Instructed
to communlcato to tho archbishop tho
firm expectation of tho emperor th it
he would abstain In futuro, both In
word nnd deed, from Interference In
political questions. Such a reprimand
to an ecclesiastic of such high rank has
caused somewhat of n situation, but
tho course adopted by tho emperor
meets with gsncral approval. Public

ABMIRAL BRADFORD CALLS
FOR MORE NAVAL STATIONS
Steady Increase in Consumption of Coal
-Satisfactory Route Pound for
Washington, November H. The
report of Admiral Bradford, chief of
the Naval Bureau of Equipment, rec
ords tinprecedentedly largo expendi
tures by cruising ships during the hut
fiscal j ear and tho disbursement of
largo amounts for freight, Involved
In the transportation of stores. Ad
miral Bradford nets forth tho dcslr-
nullity of a naval station at Guam, em
phasizing the Importance of tho Island
as a naval base. Ho also recounts
rnpld Improvements In equipment
work nt tho Cavlto naval station, and
tho completion of a steel cold-storago
houso at I'ago-l'ago, on tho Island of
Tutulla, Samoa. A new floating dry
dock for tho naval station at Algiers,
La., is to bo completed by May, 1901.
The amount of coal being consumed
by tho Navy Is Increasing ear by
ear, and Its cost last jear averaged
nearly $2 n ton more than during tho
fiscal year of 189S. Admiral Bradford
again renews his recommendations for
new naval coal depots, Tho bureau
rceommends the Installation of tho
Marconi sstem of wireless telegraphy
on board of several battleships of the
Navy provided it can bo dono at a
reasonable cost. Experiments In this
sjstem of signalling havo proved suc
cessful In the mnln in the trials mado
by ships of the North Atlantic squad
ron, although quite a serious defect
has been discovered. In tho event
that two vessels using the sjstem
should attempt to signal a slnglo port
or vessel simultaneously tho receiving
stntlon or ship Is found to be unable
to distinguish between tho messages
sent to It.
Tho report says that tho survey by
tho United Stntes steamer Nero for a
trans-Paclflc submarine telegraph ca
ble between Honolulu and tho Philip
pines was most successfully nccom
pushed, nml that a satisfactory routo
for nn all-Amerlcnn cable to connect
tho Pacific Coast with tho outlying
colontnl possessions of tho United
Stntes In tho Pacific and with China
and Japan has been discovered, thor
otighly explored, survejed and map
ped. Tho bureau Is now ready to lay
tho cnlilo at any time.
Tho attention of tho department Is
called to tho necessity for a survey of
tho Western I'nclflc ocean. Many ro-
ported "dnngcr spots" appear on tho
charts whoso absolute danger Is doubt
fill, thus giving rlso to a great deal of
uncalled for solicitude among navlgat'
