enjacity will aim enable them to 'emain
a long time at sea in search of the where
abouts or hostile vessels.
The '0uutry Is to be congratulated upon
the results obtained in the rebuilding of
the Navy. While ito ships are not as
J mam and It is not necessary they ohould
be as those of borne other great powjisr
they are, class for class, in power, speed,
workmanship, and offensive and defensive
qualities, trie equal of easels built any
where else In the world
Here follows u list of the vessels under
construction, which he says should be
completed during the coming year, ex
cept the TUo battleships which will piolu
biy not be leady for service before the
latter pait or 1899. Of the latter the
Kearsarge and Kentucky are neatly hah'
completed. About three-quarters of their
armor has been delivered, a part of which
lias been secuied in place on the ship.
The other three, the Alalwma. Illinois,
anil Wisconsin, were begun subsequent to
the last annual leport.

The tUiartnienthas during the past year
adopted the practice of placing in reserve
such easelH as It deems advisable for any
reason not to retain in active commission
Some such syateni is necessary to at once
avoid tne groat cost of keeping too mauy
vessels m active service and yet keeping
enough ready for action at short notice.
The limited number of officers and men is
also an important consideration.
Ppeakmg of other naiious'nuval prcgress
"The total number of England's vessels
of all elasscs under construction during
the year amount to 117, with an ag
grtgate displacement of aLout 44i,000

pated that during the pre-iit fiscal year 00
of these vessels will be completed for

lare. The minister of marine has been
authorized to commence the construction
of a total of seventeen vessels, at a coot
of $iG,194,72u. In addition to these
there will be under construction during
the ivjii 1897-98 a total of sixty-nine
vessels of all descriptions. Japan comes

the Spanish government; 4armored cruisers,
4 p-otected cruisers, 4 gunboats, 4 tor

It appears from the report of the bureau

So silently we seemed to rpeafc; '.
So slowly moved, moved about, "

To eke her living out.
Our weary hopes belled our fears;
Our fears our hopes belied;
We thought her dying when she slept.
Ana sleeping when she died.
