A survey of the hull of the Nor?

and it is estimated that the cost of re?
pairing her will amount to uhoul
The vessel is now in dry dock No. 2,
and the work of repairing her hull be?
gan yesterday afternoon. Several
plates on the ship's bottom will have
to lie removed and new ones substitut?
ed, while others will hnve to be taken
off and straightened and then put in
place again. It will require about a
week lo finish the work.
After leaving the shipyard the
steamer will load a cargo of coal at
one of the Chesapeake and Ohio coal
piers for Havana.
While bound to tills port from Bos?

STILL ROOM FOR HOPE
local Yard May Get a Contract
ONE TURBINE SHIP TO BE BUILT
Navy Department Will Not Know
Which Company Submitted Best
Bid Until An Expert Examination
Has Been Made.
Although the officials of the local
shipyard practically have given Up
hope of lauding the contract for
building one of the new battleships
for which bids wore opened Saturday,
there is reason to believe that the
company still tins a good chance of
building one of the vessels.
According to the Washington cor?
respondent of the New York Tribune,
the navy department Is certain to
have one of the ships equipped with
turbine englues and, if this Is done,
the local company will be In the race.
Until an expert, examination of I lie
bids and specifications is made, tho
department will not know whether
l lie local yard or the Fore River com
pany offered the most desirable bid
for the ship equipped with turbine
The Tribune correspondent says:
"The contract for one ship, built In
accordance with the plaits of the de?
partment, will undoubtedly lie award?
ed to the Cramp company, the price
being considered so attractive til all
respects. One of the ships will be
built on the departmental plans as to
hull nnd equipment' and equipped
with turbine mechanism, Instead of
the reciprocating engines, and the ac?
ceptance of the bid for this feature ;
will not he easy to determine. Tho ?
experts who made a hurried examina?
tion of the proposals received today
and looked over the tellers accom?
panying them were at a loss to come ?
to any conclusion In the mailer.
"It appeared to rest between the
Newport News Company and the Koro
River company as to which should gel
the contract for the remaining ship
with turbine mechanism, Both firms ;
proposed to install the Curtis turbine,
and the former's raii^o ot prices was
from $3.713,000 to $3,903,000. while the
liltter's bids extended from $3,089,00
to $3,040.000. The differences In the
bids were technical. It will require,
an export examination lo ascertain
which is the more acceptable bid on
the basts of ship with turbine me?
chanism. It is possible thai both
ships will be so equipped, hut In view
of the low hid from the Cramps for a
ship built oil t he depart mental plans
It seems probable Mint only one'of the .
vessels will have turbines. The, In- <
cidont which attracted most comment
today after the opening wns that the
turbine ship bids were all higher than
those for ships with reciprocating
