FROM PICTURBSQUH TOPRA0TI0AL
The announcement of the change
to Hchiioiier-rlg of tho brig Preder
Ickn Schepp was accompanied by the
statement that there are now but live
brigs on tho Atlantic coast under the
American Flair, Tho wonder Is that
even that number survives, as statis
tics show no brig to have been built
In tho United States since 1S93, when
but n solitary vessel of this descrip
tion left tho ways. Hut fifteen brigs
havo been built to tly tho Stars and
Stripes since 1880.
Tho brig, taking Its name from the
plrnto craft of the Mediterranean,
was n favorite type of American sail
lug esscl. Even the glory of tho
clipper ship In the great days be
tween 1840 and 1SCS did not obscure
Its laurels won In the India trado
and In whaling. It carried tho fame
of American seamanship around the
Horn and the Cape of Good Hope Into
Steam and tho more economical

tho brig, together with all forms of
the square-rigger. Tho thirty-three

SPEED OF BATTLESHIPS
In a newly established record of
upward of twenty-soven knots per
hour, the llrltlsh battleship Inflexible
has given naval men the world over
fresh and serious problems, and an

cruiser, as wo have known her, Into
A modern battleship with such
tremendous speed Is In a class far
different from the lumbering battle
ship which, in effect, has no power
to overtake a cruiser or liner, and Is
meant to be only a' floating and trans
ferable fortress. A battleship which
can transfer Itself from point lo
point more rapidly than the most
speedy cruiser has heretofore been
able to do, nnd which can take and
hold Its place anywhere, and against
the most powerful adversary, as this
new craft is presumably qutto able
to do, lifts tho fighting requirements
ot navies to a level whero slow bat

The development Is of world-wide
significance. In an era ot commerce,

which Mr. Llddy made In his letter
to Governor Frcnr that Deputy U. 8.
Attorney llawllns was astonished at
tho verdict, Mr. llawllns said this
morning: "I prosecuted the case, and,
under tho evidence, I believed then
and believe now, that they brought
In the only verdict that they consci
entiously could. I certainly was not
astonished when a verdict ot murder
was brought In."
Jack Lucas, who was foreman of
the Jury which tried the case, said
"Mr. Llddy was certainly not war
ranted In making the statements thtt
he did. Ho has made It appear that
we were a bloodthirsty crowd, eager
to take a man's life, while, as a mat

I believe, who was not reluctant in
bringing In such a verdict but we
felt that we had to do our duty ns

Ono of the' rnbst Important matters
which a delegate to tho convention
would' have to 'take up would bo the

Mistrial In Revolting
Case Of Ramon

In n local court. Chnrgcd yltli in

another trial. Attorney Spencer put
up the pica thnt the girl in tho case
wns not 1) IB rightful daughter, thnt
she was merely his daughter by
adoption, and this question, It seems,
hns caused the jury to disagree.
The case was heard for two days
before Judge Iloblnson before It was
given to t,ho Jury, almost nil of Spen

girl wns not the blood-daughter o
