New York In October.
TAFT WILL REVIEW ARMADA.
More Than 700,000 Tons, of Fighting
Ships and Naval Auxiliaries In the
DisplayEntire Fleet Will Be Illumi
nated on Two Nights.
The greatest naval show in the his
tory of the United States is to De the
gift of the government to New York in
October, when a. great line of armor
clads and lesser naval craft will be as
sembled in the Hudson river. More
than 700,000 tons of fighting ships and
naval auxiliaries will be in the dis
play, and of this grand total more than
450,000 tons will be super-Dread
noughts, Dreadnoughts, first class bat
tleships and armored cruisers.
Every type of the American fighting
ship will be in line, from the great su
per-Dreadnoughts of the Wyoming type
to the little submarine. There will be
scout cruisers, protected cruisers, gun
boats, mine laying ships, torpedo boat
destroyers, torpedo boats, water tend
ers, naval tenders, colliers, repair ships
and dispatch boats. The whole will
be under the command of Rear Admi
ral Hugo Osterhaus, commander in
chief of the Atlantic fleet.
The fleet will begin to mobilize early
in October. The great days will be
the 14th. 15th and 16th. On the last
day the entire armada as it proceeds to
sea will pass in review before Presi
Not only will the visit be one of
official reviews and opportunities to
all who wish to visit the greatest of
American fighting ships, but it will
be the occasion of at least one and
perhaps two of the most magnificent
electrical illuminations ever seen in
any waters in any part of the world.
On the last two nights in port the
entire fleet is expected to be illumi
nated. Hundreds of thousands of elec
tric lights will be used in the making
of the gorgeous picture.
First View of Super-Dreadnoughts.
Still another feature of the mobiliza
tion will be the first appearance in the
naval line of the two greatest battle
ships of the super-Dreadnought type
now afloat. These two ships are the
Wyoming and Arkansas, the first
named of which is to be the new flag
ship of the Atlantic fleet These two
mighty ironclads will represent 52,000
of the 450.000 tons of fighting ships
that will be in New York, and each
will have a crew of officers and men
numbering more than 1,000.
The addition of these two ships to
the fleet will give Admiral Osterhaus
eight ships of the all big gun type.
The Wyoming will not be a unit of
any division, but will be the independ
ent flagship of all five divisions. The
Arkansas will take the place of the
Michigan in the first division of the
fleet, which will then be organized
with the Florida as flagship, with the
Arkansas, Utah, North Dakota and
Delaware as the four other units.
Counting in the Michigan and her. sis
ter ship, the South Carolina, the
Dreadnought tonnage of America's
greatest fleet will then total about 166.-
000 tons. These eight Dreadnoughts,
all of which will be in the Hudson,
carry main batteries of a total of
eighty twelve-inch guns of the most
modern and powerful type.
At the last naval review in New
York the efficiency pennant was dis
played from the top of the after lat
ticework mast of the battleship Michi
gan. At the coming review the pen
nant will be missing from the Michi
gan and will flutter from the mast of
the Dreadnought Delaware, the rec
ords of the year's work, just complet
ed, showing that the Delaware has
won the coveted black pennant with
the red ball in the center.
It is interesting to note that in the
main batteries of the thirty-five Dread
noughts (battleships) and armored
cruisers that are to be mobilized in
the Hudson there is a total of more
than 1,500 guns, varying in size from
those of the three inch to those of the
thirteen inch type. In this grand total
of heavy ordnance there are 24 guns
of the thirteen inch, 148 of the twelve
inch, 16 of the ten inch, 132^ of the
eight inch, 88 of the seven inch, 214
of the six inch and 144 of the five inch
30,000 Men In the Visit.
A broadside from the twelve inch
guns alone would total in weight ap
proximately 75,000 pounds of steel. In
this connection it may be mentioned
that in the event of war it would be
possible in the case of the newer ships,
and this includes all of the Dread
noughts, to fire every gun of the thir
teen inch, twelve inch and ten inch
type in a single broadside. Add to the
weight of the twelve inch broadside
that of the thirteen inch and ten inc
and there would be a broadside of ap
proximately 100,000 pounds of steel
from a single fleet.
The number of officers and men
with the great fleet will total over 3'
The fleet that will be reviewed by
the president will number abor
eighty vessels, of which thirty-one
be battleships, four armored cruiser
three scout cruisers, twenty torpedo
boat destroyers, nine submarines an**
the rest auxiliaries.

Sense and Nonsense.
(Written for the Union.)
Princeton is A-very pretty little
Berg situated in the southeast cor
ner of Mille Lacs county on the
Waters of Bum river. In the city
limits may be found Hills and
Mounts that add to the attractions
of the town. Although no Parks are
to be found within its boundaries
there are several not far away.
There is no Zoo here, but Campbells,
Martins, Fishers, and Foxes are
often seen, also occasionally a Coon
eying you as you pass along the
The town has nominally a republi
can form of government, neverthe
less there is a King who holds un
disputed sway over a number of the
inhabitants. There are Houses and
Holms, note the distinction, as a
house is not always a home by the
way, we think the number and
beauty of the latter would be in
creased if there were no saloons in
Princeton is well supplied with
churches and A hi are quite well at
tended. The pastors seem to take
an interest in the physical wants as
well as looking after the Soules of
the members. The kind Services
of some of these ministers will al
ways be remembered.
In the town are many brave men
and maidens fair some Cravens may
be found, but we should not advise
the using of the synonym "coward"
in speaking of them. Many well
dressed ladies may be seen on the
streets, Moore especially in the style
of Coates are they particular Brown
seems to be the most popular color.
Strict attention is paid to the reg
ulations in regard to reckless driving
and one who is guilty of such misde
meanor is apt to run against a Post.
The Young men of the town are
quite persistent in their undertak
ings, and if one takes a fancy to a
maiden he never gives up until he
Wins-or dies. Well kept lawns are
an added beauty, but in putting up
fences some experience a difficulty
because although there are Staples
they cannot be bought.
Princeton affords a good market,
as the honesty of the Byers has
Long been known.
When in after years posterity scans
the historic Pages of the town one
name will stand above the rest for
the benefits received from his labors
for the good of the community, and
well may his epitaph read, "Only
remembered by what he has Dunn."
