LETTERS ARE READ FROM
THREE FAMOUS ADMIRALS
Opinion Expressed That Our
Ships Are Good as Any Built
at Same Time.
' CHICAGO, Nov. 23. Critics of tho
navy who condemn warships because of
minor defocto were publiclv answered
tonight at a banquet of "tho United
states naval academy alumni of tho
Six rear-admirals sat at the banquet
board at .the Auditorium hotel, and let
ters scoring recent critics and praising
tho uavv were read from Admiral
Dowey. Rear-Admiral Schley and Rear

Calln Strong Evidence.
"T shall refer yon to the opinions of
three of tho most distinguished admirals
who havo ever commanded fleets in ours
or any navy. Each of those opinions
was written in response to a roqucst.
One evening a short time ago I was
walking along tho street with a naval
ofliccr whose 11:11110 is a household word
from one end of the country to the
other. Ho made very pointed allusions
to commfnts recently contained in cer
tain newspapers aud'pcriodicnls respect
ing tho condition of our battleships and
their alleged faulty design. I asked
him to put his remarks in writing,
which he did. Ho was Rear-Admiral
Rear-Admiral Capps then read the
letters. Admiral Dewey's letter said,
What Dowoy Says.
"Of the battleships designed during
the past few years I have spoken and
shall continue to speak 114 tho highest
terms. The fleet of battleships now
going around tho world' a ro of the older
tA-po and some of them have lived half
the life, us commonly estimated, of a
battleship in tho lirst line. Battleship
building is one. of iho most progressive
of modern arts, and old ships aro not
equal to new; but tho vessels which
havo recently been received with such
marked consideration in South America,
Xew Zealnud, Australia, Japan aud
China aro the equals of foreign vessols
of their date of design aud completion,
and often their superiors. There is
probably nowhero in tho world today a
fleet of sixteen battleships of greater
Admiral Schley's letter said, in part:
"I am wholly out of sympathy with
thoso critics who find nothing good in
what exists and whose policy appears
to be destructive rather than construc
tive. 1 hax-o watched this discussion iu
the press and periodicals with interest
born of a lifetime of service iu every
class of shipping under the flag, aud I
am satisfied th.it it proceeded from a
spirit of censuriousuess that overlooks
the fact that no such thing as a perfect
ship floats at sea toda' nor is it possi
ble to create one, no more than it is
possible to find u perfect man.
Schley Takes Exception.
"T tako exception to such adverse
criticism today, because the fact is
withheld that many of tho minor de
fects referred to were incident to tho
time and type when thoso vessels were
constructed, and they are common to
a large percentage of tho war vessels
of cvorv other power, lint tho infer
ence sought to be established that our
ships are inferior in their class to those
in foreign navies, is unfair, untrue, and
unpatriotic. One has only to glance
over somo of the foreign vessols to dis
cover that there aro somo critics who
seem to think that all is not well in
theso matters on their eido of tho ocean.
Onlv last summer I met an Englishman
who" wanted to know all about this ' in
surrection.' as ho called it, going on in
the periodicals over our navy. Ho volun
teered tho information that wo hart the
best ships in tho world, and it was a
pity wc did not know it."
"Fighting Bob's" View.
Admiral Evans's letter said, in part:
"After an oxperienco with our (loot
which few mon have had, I am con
vinced that our ships, taken as a whole,
are equal or superior to thoso built .by
any other couutry. Of course, our first
ships are not tho equals of tho last lor
Mini ships, and no sane man would ex
pect them to be, but, date for date ot
design, they arc the equals ol any, ex
cept 111 tho cubo of our latest designed
ships, where tho grout superiority of
ours is beyond question. As lightmc
machines, our designs of the last few
vears show great advantages over any
thing proposed abroad. I havo mudo . it

NOTE OF 'fill
Field Marshal of English Army
Poinls Out Danger That
OF GERMAN INVASION
Declares That Great Britain Is
Not Properly Prepared for
LONDON, Nov. 23. Speaking in iho
IIouso of Lords tonight, Pield Marshal
Lord Roberts expressed the conviction
that the lack of a military forco suffi
cient to make hopeless the attempt of
an invasion would iu all probability be
the cause of tho loss of Great Britain's
supremacy at soa. In a studied speech
ho pointed out tho comparative ease
with which Gormauy could land an
army on the shores of England. Uudor
present conditions England would bo
forced, he said, to submit to most hu
Uo disclaimed all hostility to or foar
of Germany: but ho declared that tho
defense of tho islands required imme
diate attention. Thero should bo an
army so strong in numbers and efficiout
in quality that the most formidable of
foreign nations would hesitato to make
a landing in England. lie had ascer
tained that vessels capable of accommo
dating 200,000 men always were avail
able in the northern ports of Germany
and that as a result of the new German
sorvico law 200,000 men could bo col
lected in tho districts of tho nearest
port without trouble.
Says Germany Is Ready.
The great German steamship linos
and disembarking, nnd as tho railroads
were owned by tho state all prelimi
naries to the actual dispatch of troops
could bo carried out with the utmost
secrecy. Germany was perfectly aware,
the field marshal went on, thnt it would
be essential for her transports to evado
tho British ' fleet, aud sho could easily
distract attention by small raids wheii
disembarking, proceeding undisturbed.
"It would bo folly,' declared tho
lord, "to shut our eyes to theso 'possi
bilities, however much wo desired.
Startling ovouts in tho near cast, have
brought home to the most careless ob
borvcr that nothing could save that
country which is not prop.-lrcd to pro
tect itself, ff Groat Britain continues
to ncgloct the most ordinary precau
tions, sho may somo day find horself
in tho hands of tho invader. This dan
ger is daily becoming more throateuinir.
Within a dec-tide Germany has the great
est sea power that ever existed, except
great Britain, and at tho present mo
ment it is forming measuros to in
crease that power. It is calculated that
there are S0,000 Germans in employ
ment in Great Britain. Thoy arc trainod
soldiers, and if a German force onco
landed 011 theso shores thoy would be
ready to help."
Control of Soa TJncssontial.
Lord Roberts contended it was not
essential for a notion to command tho
sea in order to carry out an invasion.
A temporary .local command, would
suffice, aud this was perfectly under-
Ceutiuucd on Pnc Two.

that a law will be passed corrective o mm f
