Three of the latest British destroyers
are laid up at Portsmouth badly battered.
The engines of the Bat have been under
reconstruction since last February, when
they were disabled during trial; the Hunt
er is scarcely worth repairing and tho
Teazer had six inches ripped off her bow.
The record of the destroyers for acci
dents is far worse than of any other class
of naval vessels and this applies to those
of all navies.
A new classification of Japanese war
vessels has recently been promulgated.
Battleships over 10,000 tons are rated as
first class, and under 10.000 tons as second
class. Cruisers are in three classes, re
gardless of their being armored, protect
ed or unprotected, the first claes taking
in all over 7000 tons; the second class in
cluding thoso between 7000 and 3500 ton*;
all under 3500 tons are third class. Coast
defense ships are rated in the same order
as the cruisers. Gunboats over 1000 tons
and less than 1000 tons are rated first
and second class respectively. Torpedu
boats of 120 tons and v>ver are first class;
above seventy tons, -second class; over
twenty tons are third class, and less than
twenty tons are fourth class. According
to the above classification Japan's navy
consists of the following vessels: Six
first class and two second class battle
ships; six armored fii-st class cruiser \
nine protected cruisers and five of th©
third class. Of coasi-defense vessel3
there are ten, all of the third class. Fif
teen gunboats are rated two and thirteen
in the first and second class. Four dis
patch vessels, one torpedo-depot ship and
twelve destroyers have no classification,
while the nine-three torpedo boats arc
rated in their order of four sizes at seven,
thirty-one, twenty-seven and twenty
eight. This makes a grand total of 163
vessels of all types and sizes.
Two flagrant instances of injustice aio
reported from the British battleship Ceti
turlcti. Some months ago a gunner was
bentenced to ninety days' hard labor for
stealing half a pound of meat, a punish
ment far in excess of the seriousness of
the offense. Quite recently a sergeant of
the marines aboard the Centurion stole
the kit-bag of a private and substituted
his own name for that of the rightful
owner. The only punishment he received
was a private lecture by the chaplain.
Five of the fastest cruisers in the Brit
ish navy have required thirteen days to
make the run from Plymouth to Gibral
tar. As the distance is only about 104'J
knots these twenty-one-knot cruisers
made but a poor show of speed: In Ma> ,
1S0S, the cruiser Terrible made the dis
tance in seventyvtwo hours.
China is not entirely without a navy
and although it has no battleships there
are a number of good cruisers and de
stroyers built since the war with Japan
which are very good vessels. It was only
the northern fleet that was practically
annihilated in 1894. for the southern fleet
took no part whatever In any of the en
gagements. This southern fleet consists
of seven cruisers ranging from 14S0 to
2000 tons, none of tlmm over sixteen years
old, and well armed; three torpedo gun
boats, five flat-bottomed gunboats and
about fifteen other crafts of doubtful
value. The modern fleet numbers two
4300 ton cruisers, built at Elswick, with
a speed of twenty-four knots; three 2160
ton cruisers of over twenty knots speed,
built in Germany; one torpedo gunboat o£
twenty-two knots speed, and some tor
pedo boats somewhat out "of date and
most likely, worthless. Four destroyers
built at Klblng, of thirty-five knots trial
speed, have been detained by the German
France is gradually getting rid of some
of/its obsolete and old naval vessels. The
Trident, armored ship of SS57 tons, built
in 1S76, Is withdrawn from the active list
to become a stationary hospital ship at
Marseilles. The gunboat Paplu, built in
1SSC. is also stricken from the list, and
the Klore Is to be broken up.
The British battleship Benbow has been
reboilered and somewhat modernized. A
trial under natural draught gave ?&)"
horsepower and a speed of 15.55 knots. In
1888, when her first trial took place, sho
developed 11.500 horsepower and 1S.73
knots speed omder forced dra.ught, aud
her latest performance under natural
draught Is very satisfactory.
It is alleged that Emperor ¦William in
duced the Sultan of Turkey to give the
work^of reconstruction of a battleship to
Krupp, although the price demanded was
far in excess of the bid submitted by the
Armstrong firm of Elswick.

Burgett left Ogden Saturday in company with Richard P. Hume on a
prospecting tour of the mines at the head of the canyon, in which Burgett was
interested. At Whitohead's mining camp they were joined by three miners in
the employ of Whitehead and the start up the dizzy trail over the range was be

stopped to rest, Burgett sitting on a V-shaped rock. In some manner he
slipped and pitched head foremost, dropping to a flat rock 300 feet below, from
which he bounded 1000 feet to the bottom of the gulch. His companions ¦went to
where he lay. He was mangled beyond recognition, his head being crushed- to a
jelly, every bone broken and the entrails exposed. The mangled body was carried
back to Whitehead's camp and word sent to friends here.
Burgett was a well-known citizen of Utah. He had resided here twelve
years. His father, mother and sister reside at Aberdeen, S. D.

VANCOUVER. B. C. July 29.-The 600
members . of the Steveston Fishermen's
Union .are now the only white men not
fishing on the Fraser River. The strike is
broken, with the exception of the mem
bership of this one union, but they are
holding out with the almost impossible
determination that the cannery men
must sooner or later come to their terms.
The strike has lasted now for th rty
days. The Fishermen's Union at West
minster, fifteen miles up the Fraser
River from Steveston, decided this morn
ing that they would go out to-night. News
from Steveston at 6 o'clock to-night says
they were passing out into the gulf at that
hour, and were being jeered by the union
men of Steveston as they passed the
The Westminster union numbers 500
men, and its disaffection is a big loss to
the strikers. Nearly all the Indians are
also going out to-night, and, with the
Japanese, who have been out for a week,
there is a fleet of 3000 lishing-boats at the
mouth of the river. Everything was quiet
this afternoon at Steveston.
Last night a shooting scrape, in which
a Siwash was badly wounded by an Ital
ian in a quarrel over a Klootchman,
aroused the town. The sentries of the
militia encampment thought the strikers
were out for business, and in five minutes
the militia force was in battle array. The
300 soldiers successfully surrounded the
Indian and his foreign enemy, and both
of them were locked up in jail.
Yesterday afternoon the latest decision
of the canners was communicated to the
fishermen in the form of a letter. The
document was read, making the offer of
20 cents for the season instead of the 23
cents asked by the fishermen, the can
ners refusing to recognize the union. The
fishermen agreed to take the 20 cents and
wished to settle on that basis, but said
their union must be recognized. They
therefore tore up the letter of the canners
and communicated their decision to the
employers of labor on the Kraser River.
Negotiations were then declared off, and
the canners say they will have nothing
more to do with the men.
