OUR SHIPBUILDERS IN FAVOR

-At 33?rlin recently an interview was
obtained with Irvin:; M. Scott, who was
theie, with his sort, Laurence Irving
Scott, a Cornel! atudeut, and accom?
panied by bis physician, l>r. George
Chismore. lie expressed himself fuliy
as to his trip to Russia, undertaken in
behalf of the Union Iron Works of San
Francisco, whose V.ce President and
manager he is.
Mr. Scott Is the btt liler of the battle?
ship Oregon, of Adn iral Oewey's Jlag
ship, the Olympia i ud of the Charles?
ton, and he showed tae reporter letters
of congratulation tveived from Ad?
miral Oewey, Cap;. Chadwick of the
New York, and othe: ??, on the splendid
fighting and speed q :alities of Iiis ves?
sels, lie went to He; sia.Vhere be si aid
a month,fox several purposes. The main
one was to ascertain on the spot the
chances America, an-J more particular?
ly San Francisco, v;;l have in supply?
ing that region around the mouth of
lie- Amour River, Including Vladivo
stock and also Port Arthur, with all
sorts of river craft, d.;ep-seu-going ves?
sels, shipbuilding material, railroad
material, etc. Mr. SSV'olt spent part of
his time in St. Petersburg, and tlie rest
at Moscow, the mujrufactiirlng centre
of Russia, and mad" a thorough inves?
tigation of the situat.on. lie said:
"1 found that vast and progressive
region which Is beginning to be known
as Fas: Russia, along the Pacific, and
for which San Franc,sco is the nearest
point of supply, rapiOly developing, and
1 also found thai tj,e Russian manu?
facturers aie alive to this fact, and
that Russian local Industry is progress?
ing remarkably. 1 was everywhere
received splendidly in Russia, and
found no prejudice against America
or American nianufatturers."
Bui he did find a s-.rong tendency on
the part of the Russians 10 manufac?
ture their own supplies, and a vigorous
encouragement on th^ part of the Rus?
sian Government tc xirt in ibis respect.
However. Americans will have as good
a chance as anybody in supplying Rus?
sia with those manufactures and sup?
plies with which Omy cannot supply
themselves as weil Ol as cheaply. Rus?
sia will build her ow n ships, as rar as
the can. and will iiirehase, besides,
vessels ready made bom other nations
She has live large war vessels now
building in Si. Petersburg. There will
he. though, a clinnci for American
manufacturers to supply certain arti?
About the contrails concluded and
prepared by Mr. Scot'., as the represen?
tative of the Union 1 -on Works, he re?
fused io .-iick.
"As for American .ships." he added.
"1 can say that In -heir performance
they now stand at ti.e very from, and
the capacity of the United States for
building ships ranks second. The war?
ships of tin- near nunre, so far as
evolutions go. will Ve a battleship of
cruiser speed, fully protected, with
heavy guns and a Urge mal capacity,
and also heavily a^aiored. Ail lie- ??
features combined sre possible in a
warship, ami they '.ill he combined
better than hereto!.] e."

A statistical a hilly; Is of the battle of
Santiago, in which \dmirul Oorvern's
squadron was destroyed, has. led to tlie
following conclusion; :
Tin- victory was .in-, in part, to the
1. The greater a. curacy of tire of
the United Slates v.: isels.
2. The use of wt.ui in the Spanish
ships to such an en'.enl as In render
the extinguishing ol a lire practically
impossible aller sc oral large shells
had cut up water m: .us ami hose.
3. The greater in mber of guns of
eight-inch calibre en the 1'uiic.l state.,
?i. The belter mo: lie due lo the fact
that all the crews h ; been under lire a
number of times du ine the bombard?
ments along lb.- Cu .an coast al San
tiugo de Cuba and Si. h Juan.
5. The value of ? large secondary
battery was deinon irate.!. for the
work of lit-- six-poi niters contributed
largely in keeping e.own the enemy's
fire by driving then: from their guns.
fi. Tie- necessity fjr more and bette.'
protection for the g in'.-- crew.--. With
the men disabled or driven from their
Stations, the ship is if lillle value as a
fighting machine. '. he armor of the

A couple of } ears ago be Scott Evans,
the artist, took ti trip lu .lajtiaiea. and
upon his ret tun to New Vork he ex
?tibited .a mi tuber c: picture's, that he
had painted during ids outing.
One day a man who hud been looking
through the sltdio shipped before a
certain pictute. and asked:
"What does Iltis represent?"
"That." sah! Mr. Evans, "is a scene

'that's strange. I dou'l remember
ever seeing anyi hini; like thai in
"Von have been there, then, h'ave

"Oh. yes. 1 live there."
"Well, you surely inns; be acquaint?

Evans for a moment, as if lie thought

"1 live in .f.'unaica, mid there isn't tt

motest resemblance to thai picture."
Tin- mention of Jamaica as a town
cleared away the mist.
"I see." said Mr. Evans, "yon live in
Jamaica, Long Island, don't you'/"
"Yes," replied the suburbanite, "is
there another Jamaica anywhere'.'"
"It was a great mistake." said tlie
Madrid press censor ti.gilt fully.
"To what do you refer?" inquired
[he cabinet member.
"Permitting the papers to call those
