Modern War Ships
I English Testimoxt as to Their Cost
ant Efficiency
f TvT H White Assistant Controller
of tho Britisli navy in the coarse of a
recent address gave liis views as fol
lows The first cost of a 100 gun
line-of-battle ship at the beginning of
the century was about 65000 to 70
OOCjfc armament and ordnance stores
being excluded while now the Tra
falgar and Nile designed in 1SS5
were estimated at SG0000 each
Addirig the value of guns
tion and stores it might bo said that
the captain of the Trafalgar had the
responsibility of navigating and fight
ing a macnme representing a uuuiuu
sterling The estimated value of the
largest Prenclfflron clad was from
600000 to 650000 and the Russian
from 700000 to 750000 In the In
flexible the armor plating alone cosL
170000 and the propelling machin
ery 126000 the hydraulic gun
mountings and auxiliary engines of
Tarious kinds 55000 These three
items alone would have produced five
first rates of Nelsons time The cost
of a completed ship represents twelve
first rates of 1800 seven of 1840 and
ifereo and a half of 1859 For tho
same sum of money there could now
be procured four powerful protected
cruisers steaming twenty knots an
f tiur six knots faster than the In
flexible and carrying guns capable
of pif rcing twenty inches of wrought
iron- at 1000 yards or a fleet of
thirty to forty swif t torpedo craft of
various sizes steaming twenty to
tjnty five knots an hour Who was
to decide what was the best invest
ment of a million sterling when such
different appropriations were possi
ble Tho growth of cost ran through
the various classes of modern fleets
To obtain a sloop of war of modern
1 type carrying six or eight guns cost
L little less than did the 100 gun three-
decker of 1S00 To build and equip
a torpedo boat of first class costs
nearly as much as a sailing frigate of
fifty guns in Nelsons time Large
as had been the sums annually spent
on shipbuilding during tho last quar
ter of a century they had not been
largo enough in proportion to tho
number and cost of tho new ships in
hand to permit of rapid construction
This financial limitation or want of
funds in relation to work incomplete
had sadly hampered hindered pro
gress and completion Lengthening
out tho time over which a ship had
been on hand it had indirectly added
to the cost and had given time for
the numerous alterations and addi
tions to which he had referred The
Royal Navy was now Tory strong in
armored ships as was testified in no
measured terms by the recent French
official reports and in the financial
ytor about to begin this portion of
tlrp fleet uvailable for service would
bo strengthened by the completion of
a largo number of new swift ships
But foreign navies without exception
were making strenuous efforts to
strengthen the classes of swift pro
tected cruisers and torpedo craft
and with our world wide empire and
eMJrmous commercial and shipping
interests this movement abroad com
pelled action- here For many rea
sons this development of the swift
cruiser classes was to be welcomed
Such vessels were admirably adapted
to the characteristics of the British
sailor and would give scope for fresh
displays of that mingled audacity
and skill which had become a tradi
tion iu tho service since the time
when the small but swift sailing
handy vessels of tho English fleet
played havoc with the huge but un
wieldly vessels of tho Spanish Anna
da With reference to the possible
use of mercantile auxiliaries in time
f war he said that ho heartily
pathized with all that had been done
in tho last ten years to encourage
methods of construction and subdi
vision which would better fit these
vessels to receive an armament of
guns and to bo capable of fighting
He believedthat in many ways these
armed vessels would be of immense
value to tho country in time of war
but he did not concur in tho opinion
that they could be treated as substi
tutes for regular warships and that
the navy could be reduced in num
bers becauso these auxiliaries might
be available for there were radical
and unavoidable differences in struc
tua protection machinery and
steering gear as well as handiness
capability of using their arma
ments between such vessels and
regular built fighting ships
j Admiral Lord Charles Beresford
j says for his part he believed that
we had reached tho end of tho days
of heavy armor clad ships But if
other nations built them we must do
so too for wo could not afford to let
any nation construct a ship that
would be suparior in size to any ves
sel in our fleet The mere fact that
the admiralty had determined to
build tho Nile and Trafalgar would
show that England was determined
4P build ships larger than those pos
sessed by the French recognizing
our greater means would abstain
from further rivalry in this direction
Already the French Minister of Ma
rine had stated publicly that the
French ought to build small ships
capable of preying upon our com
merce The old system under which
it took seven or eight years to build
a ship was bad If sho were turned
out in accordance with the original
design she would be a better ship
because her speed and draught would
then undergo no alteration Coming
to the subject of torpedoes he said
he did not think that they were naval
warfare At the same time they
ougjiit not to be underrated The
energy and dash that would be re
quired in handling them would tell
more for Englismen than against
thssa Torpedo boats were as yet in
i their mfancv but he thought that
the small boat of seventy or eighty
feet that you could hoist in and out
of a depot ship or a ship of war and
the boat of 135 feet would be found
to be most useful The intermediate
boat would not boa success For the
submarine boat he believed that
there was a great future but it would
not revolutionize warfare and many
difficulties had yet to be over
come in connection with its construc
tion Ho was totally opposed to the
retention of masts in first class fight
ing ships for their presence might
easily result in a ship being put out
of action
Masts and sails were however
very useful in drill ships for from
familiarity with them the sea
men gained that readiness of re
source which could only be learned
aloft Alluding to tho observations
of Mr White as to the measured
miles he considered that the condi
tions under which a ship of war was
tested ought as far as possible to be
those which she would experience in
an engagement Examining the
principles upon which tho navies of
different nations ought to be com
pared he said that one ought not to
look at the number of ships of a par
ticular country but consider what
those ships had to do In the pro
tection of our wealth and food sup
ply and in the performance of other
duties in a time of war each of our
vessels wonid have to do sixty six
times more than her French compeer
We must not therefore suppose that
we should be able to hold our own
against a country merely because we
possessed a few more ships although
individually he might think we
should Dealing finally with the
subject of mercantile auxiliaries he
argued that a certain number ought
to be in readiness to leave England
within three days after a proclama
tion of war and to proceed to differ
ent ports on certain specified circuits
there to protect the vessels which
but for such aid would fall into the
hands of enterprising rovers Alia
