12-lnch guniron tho ships now build
ing. The Navy Department has made
up Its mind that for the present,
at least, the limit has been reached
In the number of big guns that the
great ships of tho line can cany.
It would be impossible to make mote
tlinn twelve guns effective without
cntlroly changing tho Hues upon
which the modern battleships aro
constructed, The rourso of nnvnl
constructors, therefore, lay In the
direction ot building moro powerful
The new "fourteens" will bo tho

exceed seven feet In length. They
will hava an actual range ot sixteen

tstead of 2(1,000, tho aggregate foi

will bo 50 per cent, lnrger than the

modern battleship patterns.
