Puget Sound Navy Yard, Wash.,
Oct. 16. This naval shore station
-which Is the second and last on the
.entire Pacific Coast Is Inadequate
for present needs, and unless In
ereawil In every department would
be a great disappointment in time of
war. Here are some of the reasons:
1. Yard Is without railroad facil
ities. All supplies must be handled
several times while being shipped In
by steamer from Seattle. Although
a railroad track could easily be laid
to Olympia on the main line, only 65
.miles distant, the government has
neglected tr do It. Naval authori
ties Mgitre that In time of war a naval
base without railroad facilities would
be a great disadvantage.
2. Dockage entirely Inadequate.
Four warships are here now and
dockage capacity la overtaxed. War
ships en route will necessarily have
to be anchored in sound. Repairs
will have to be made to anchored
shplps under great disadvantage.
8. Lack of dry-docks. This yard
lias but one dry dock. It Is the only
dock on the entire Pacific coast
owned by Uncle Sam that Is big
riiough to take in the largest of our
warships. Repairs to big ships re
quire all the way from one to six
months. In case more than one of
the large vessels would be out of re
pair at one time they would have
go out of commission awaiting
ithelr turn to be repaired In private
drydO';k at gTeat expense. Naval
exoerta agree that any naval base
"worthy of the name murt be cquip
pel with more than one dock.
Yard. Only One on Entire Pacific
to liig Warship!.
Tlie Iry Docks.
The one dry dock is 650 feet long.
Our largest warships and cruisers
are 502, 505 and 607 feet.
Most of the naval bases of other
powers have more than one dry
dock. Some Idea of how Oreat
Britain loks ahead in building docks
at important places will be een
from the brief figures on the great
drydock to be constructed at South
hampton. This new dock is to have
a length of 1700 feet and a width of
00. It will provide berths for four
vessels about 800 feet long. In addi
tion to this four outside quays are
to be built that will accommodate
four vessels ranging from 600 to 700
All well informed persons here
realize this yard Is inadequate. In
an Hnnlver.aiy edition of the Urem
erton Searchlight, issued by the
board of trade and contributed to by
prominent officers of the yard, this
statement is made:
("The Puget Sound navy yard,
which Is inadequae even for present
neds, cannot meet the demands of
the future unless Increased In every
"It is the unfamlliarity of the pub
lic with the conditions on this west
coast and the dilatory tactics of cer
tain members of congres-s who are
Interested more in other yards, that
has caused the work to be delayed
here. Navy yards In eastern com
munities that have a strong pull
have been enlarged and equipped be
yond the necessities of the service
there, while the Puget Sound
navy yard has been kept back."
Kansas City, Oct. 16. Cattle from
all over the range country were
plentiful last week, although Colo
rado, New Mexico and Panhandle
offerings predominated. Prices were
uneven, during the week, but finally
closed with a small net loss on steers.
ncludlng stockers and feeders, while
she stuff held nearly pteady, and
calves advanced 25 to 50 cents. The
un today Is heavy at 24.000 head.
but the market Is nearly steady.
Country demand continues heavy,
more than 1,000 car loads taken by
his trade last week, and prospects
favoring a still heavier business In
this line present week. Railroads are
unable to handle business promptly,
especially from distant points, which
will keep supplies down to a moder
ate basis through the season, and In
ures fairly good markets. There is
some talk of reduced cattle feeding
because of high corn, but free buying
for the country continues here. Some
of the Prairie Cattle company year
lings from eastern Colorado sold at
14.25 here today, and other range
stockers sell at IS. 40 to $4.40, range
feeders $3.65 to $4.50, killers from
the western slope bring $4.00 to
$4.60. cows $2.75 to $3.85, eastern
Colorado killers $3.80 to $4.60 cows
$2.76 to $3.35, New Mexico and Pan
handles about the same range, can
ners $2.15 to $2.60, veal calves up to
$7.00, heavy calves $3.50 to $4.75.
Moderate Ilun of Slwep.
Run of sheep and lambs has been
moderate since last Monday, lnclud-
ng today, when 8,000 are here, and
the market has been some stronger,
although no material advance has
been made. Killing stuff has met tne
strongest demand, as the porportlon
of stock stuff has been heavy, but
there has been enough country de
mand to make good clearances.
Feeding lambs bring $6.25 to $6.65,
a few common Mexican lambs at
$5.86, wethers and yearlings $4.o to
$5.B0. breeding ewes $4.75 to $6.00,
fat lambs $6.90 to $7.40, wethers and
yearlings $5.00 to $5.60. ewes $4.75

Nothing New Under the Sun
Solomon says there is nothing new under the sun, and
Solomon is an authority. He may have done some things
that were somewhat shoddy, but it has never been satisfac
torily proven that he ever misrepresented.
Conceded, then, that he knew what he was talking about
when he made that statement, how do you account for the
queer things that bob up now and then that nobody eyer
saw before ?
My dear Sir, they are all merely new combinations of old
things. You can't even think of a really new thing. Try
to think of a new animal. To save your soul, you can't
help thinking of legs and eyes and teeth and tails, which
are all old and well known things. Try something else.
The Albuquerque Citizen doesn't claim to have discovered
something elementally new, but they have some fellows
around the place who are mighty slick at hanging the old
things together in new and taking ways. They'd fix you
up an ad that would make even Solomon himself have some
doubts about the old proverb.
