BUILDING OF WAR VESSELS
Thourht that Goyernmont is Deter?
mined to Resume Euilding Ships at
its Own Yards?New Launch?
ing Way?Schmoelo Affair.
(Special to Tho Tlmoa-Dispatch.)
NORFOLK, VA., Oct. 21.?Tho govern
ment Is gottlng ready to build all tho
ships necessary In Its own yards. Tho
oxporlonces of tho last year with tho
crippled yards of tho ship bUltdU'g trust
has convlncod tho practical men of tho
navy, tho tralnod oillcors of tho service,
that tho government should Uo In posi?
tion to do Its own construction, as well
as tho repair works upon its ships at all
tiio navy yards.
Tho old launching ways at this navy
yard, from which many a gallant ship
has olippod Off Into tho waters of tho
Elizabeth, havo not buon used slnco the
construction of the famous crulsor Ra?
leigh and the battleship Texas.
Tho ways have been practically aba-i
duncd for the past nine years, and it
was thought that there would scarcely
be another ship laid down on them.
This Impression was strengthened by tho
construction at St. Helena and Cedar
Grove, the government reservations on
the eastern Hide of tho Southern Branch,
of wharves and lie-up slips for the tor?
It was tho avowed Intention of the gov?
ernment, when It purchased the Cedar
Grove tract, to hold tho water front un?
obstructed, In order that the launching
ways on the western sido of tho river
might not bo obstructed. Tho Improve?
ments at Cedar Grove, however, are
immediately opposite tho old launching
ways, and It would bo impossible to
launch a vessel stern first at that point,
without danger of her striking the piers,
where the torpedo boats are tied up.
NEW LAUNCHING WAY.
This practical abandonment of the
launching ways was significant of the
Intention of the government to adhere
permanently to Its policy of building all
warships by contract in private yards,
leaving only tho repair work to tho
Just then, however, tho practical object
lesson' Of the helplessness of the Navy
Department, In the face of complications
involving the private yards, was given.
Naval officers were not slow to grasp
the full significance of what such a sit?
uation would mean In lime of trouble,
and they at once remembered the; navy
One result of this Is that there will
be built at this yard, under the estimates
that have been made, a' launching way
to cost $100,000. This will be the finest
equipment of the kind In the country,
op ? ?vin inolnilo overhead cranes for
handling materials. It will be built at
->i> ic.ute ? nule to tho river, so that ships
will go down stream when launched
from It. Tho foundation will, Civil En?
gineer Thompson says, Tie Ftrong enough
to support a 16,000 ton battleship. Tho
naval officers are confident that the plan
will be approved and the government
thus made more independent of the pri?
Tt is stated to-day, on tho very best
authority, thnt there Is nn excellent
chance that the differences between the
government and the owners of tho
Schmoelo tract, adjoining the navy yard,
nnd needed for the extension of the big
plant, may be settled out of court.
The enso Is booked to como uu before
the FedTiU Court during the November
term. Two condemnation commissions
having ren?ored practically Identical ro
ports, fixing tho price of the property
at. a hierher figure than the appropria?
tion of half p million dollars, made by
Congress for the acquisition of the prop?
erty, the matter Is now to go to the
Juvy, who"0 verdict will. In all proba?
bility, be final.
