THE KRUPP ARMOR.
According to dispatches from Wash?
ington it Is more than likely that the
officers of the ordnance bureau will re?
commend the use of the recently in?
vented Krupp armor in the con?
struction of the battleships for which
contracts have just been awarded.
It Is claimed that experiments have
shown that six inches of the new armor
is equal to eight inches of the Harvey
ized nickle steel. If this be true the
determination of the board is the only
one which could be justified by com?
mon sense. Experience has shown
that the United States navy is at
present up-to-date on both offensive
and defensive lines. The Brooklyn
proved that comparatively thin Har.
veylzed armor can stand a good
deal of pounding even at close
quarters. With the increased per?
centage of resistance claimed for
the new plate it would be
possible to build battleships of a fas?
ter and lighter class without weaken?
ing them at all at any essential point.
Inasmuch as these are the main con?
siderations in building ships now. a
is to be hoped that a fair and exhaust?
ive test of the new armor will be made.
Then if the claims of the Krupp peo
people are found to be correct the bat?
tleships and cruisers that are to be
added to Uncle Sam's navy should be
coated with this splendid armor. No
captious or mistaken idea of economy
should deter the government from put?
ting the very best material that can
be had into the floating defenders of
the national honor.
American sailors and American gun?
ners are the equals of any men afloat
or ashore. They should have the ad?
vantage of the latest and most im?
proved ideas In shipbuilding. The
United States navy must keep pace
with the progress of the world.
The American peace commissioners
have come to the conclusion that tin
demands of the United States will be
so very reasonable that there will be
no necessity for a long discussion of
the terms. Theoretically this is all
correct and proper, but we fail to re?
member a single instance on record
where the Spaniards have failed to
discuss matters of this kind. They re?
cognize the fact that they are strong
in the shifty art of diplomacy and
never let an opportunity pass to dis?
play this ability. The present in
stance may be an exception to the
rule, but if the American commission
era were wise they took along changes
of underwear at least.
Philadelphia has 8,000 school children
for which there is no place in the- public
educational institutions n! that city.
For this reason the Philadelphia
Record protests against the int.ro
duction of a number of unneces?
sary, but very costly, ad?
ditions proposed for the high
school in that city. Such a protest is
eminently Just and practical. Art and
culture may be things of beauty and a
joy forever, but the bed rock princi?
ples of education should not be neglect?
ed for them. When the S.000 children
who have no room have been provided
for it will he time enough to put the
fringes on the High School.

of your best friends and more, you
have missed the comfort that can only
be had from the use of gas fuel, which

it is in use. Talk Is cheap you may

who can blame him. He knows a good

he is willing that his friends should

that he Is, he gives his advice free. It
Is no trouble to sing the praises of gas
for fuel and as for light, its beauty
shines so he who runs may be impress

you economical ? Tou arajffudent and
