ADMIRE THE FLEET COLUMBIA.
Franco UaH Ordered Two Duplicates
of Our Beautiful Numet-ulvO.
News has just reached the Navy Depart

shown its appreciation of the fine capa

ordering the immediate construction of two
vessels as nearly a duplicate of the famous
American flyer aB they can be made in the
absence of our exact plans.
They are to be known as "Cioiseurs Cor

standing the criticisms that have been
passed upon the Columbia because of her

have still smaller caliber guns, the largest
being but 0.5 inches, as against 8-inch
