gress for construction- of the vessels.
The secretary announced that he
would ask congress to authorize the
! equipment of the navy yard at Phila-!
delphia for battleship construction at j
a cost of approximately $1,000,000 in
order to be better prepared for the increased
building programme contemplated
in the administration defense
plans.
Keels of battleships Xo. 43 and No.
44, iMr. Daniels said, could be laid in
August or September of next year.

'The battleship Calitornia, now cruna-1
ing at the New York yard, will be off j
the ways by that time.
The Mare Island estimate included '
several hundred thousand dollars for |
enlarging stocks to take a 32,000-ton j
shin. Material for this work will be I
purchased immediately and contracts
for the structural steel of both ships
probably will be awarded tomorrow.
In submitting its estimates, the New
York yard proposed to build either a
turbine driven ship or one equipped
with the combined steam and electrical
machinery first authorized for a heavy
warship when tfn's system was decided
upon for the California. The Mare Island
yard estimated only on a turbine
driven ship.
Secretary Daniels said a decisiou
would be reached later as to whether
the electric drive system should be in
stalled on one or both of the new j
ships. Estimates for electric drive j
were lower than those of the straight j
turbine type.
Secretary Daniels said his reason for
having the ships bui't in navy yards
had been explained to the chairmen of
the senate and house naval committees
The last battleship constructed by the
navy, he haid, had cost $7,200,000 for
hull and machinery, but increased torpedo
defenses in the new ships would j
mean an additional cost of $150,000 to
$175,000. Congress set the limit of
cost for each ship at ^7,800,000 and j
the secretary said that while the de-1
partment would not hold itself to the
estimate submitted by the New York
and Mare Island yards, there was a
wide margin between those figures
and the congressional limit.
The ships will require 68,422,220
pounds of structural steel and bids recently
received from steel companies
show that it can be obtained at less
than the cost estimated -biy the navy
varris Armor nlate Drices are un
changed from last year. Assurances
have been received that there will be
no delay in the delivery of any material.
Mr. Daniels expects both ships
to be completed within 34 months.

WET GUNCOTTON.
l/lore Stable Than Dry and Explodes
Only From a Severe Shock.
Owing to its high percentage of nitrogen
oxide, guncotton when exposed to j
air in a dry state rapidly absorbs oxy- j
gen from the air and becomes very ;
dangerous, exploding spontaneously or 1
from slight shock. Dry guneotton in ;
unconGned mass merely burns with a
flash like gunpowder, only much more
rapidly; it does not exert explosive effect
unless confined, as in a shell. In
its dry state guneotton is seldom used
for primers and detonators, as it is too
unstable and will.explode with a slight j
shock or blow. .
The guneotton carried aboard war
vessels and submarines for the explosive
charge of torpedoes is always

only by a severe shock; bence primers
or detonators of some more powerful
explosive are necessary, these exploding
on impact of the torpedo against a
ship's side and in turn exploding the
guncotton in the war head. Fifty to 100
pounds is the usual charge of a torpedo.
Ordinarily safe if properly stowed
away from heat and kept moist, guncotton
becomes dangerous from liability
to spontaneous explosion when a
slight excess of acid is present, and I
constant and regular tests for acidity
are part of the duties of ordnance officers
of war vessels and ammunition
depots. Guncotton giving a bigh acid
test is promptly condemned and either j
destroyed or reworked and washed.?!

LAW OLD AND NEW.
A Cynical View of Past Methods and
Those of the Present.
Law. more especially criminal law,
has usually been an occult science. It
is still the practice in Burma, we be- j
lieve, to give two disputants candles of
the same size, to be lighted at the
same time. The one whose candle
burns longest gets judgment against
the other.
Less than 100 years ago a defendant
in an English criminal trial appealed
to the ordeal of battle, and the court
was more or less surprised to find that
rhe ancient law on which be relied had
never been repealed.
Determining a man's guilt or innocence
by his ability to walk on bot
plowshares or carry a hot iron or
drink a poisonous decoction or by
throwing him bound into water has
been practiced for ages among many

peoples. Tne medieval metuuu <jj. jetting

Inability to find the merits of the
cause and so relegated the whole affair
to the intervention of supernatural
agencies. The main difference is thar
we are less modest. Instead of the
ordeal of battle or the old key and Bible

Snuff and a Crook.
Robert Pinkerton once told a story
of his father, the founder of the detective
agency, which illustrates the
elder Pinkerton's caution. A noted
criminal was detained in Pinkerton's
Chicago office. The elder Pinkerton
left the room and when he returned
took the precaution of holding a revolver
in front of him ready for use.
He saw the criminal standing by the
door with a snuffbox he had picked
up from Pinkerton's desk in his hand.
"This is good snuff." affably remarked
the crook as he took a sniff.
"For the eyes or the nose.' " asnea
Pinkertou. who knew that the crook
had intended to blind him in an effort
to escape.
"Well." remarked the criminal, "I'm
sorry to say that the nose gets it this
time."
Flexibility of English.
English is not only, as Richard Jefferies
asserted, the most expressive
and flexible of tongues, but also, in
Swinburne's oDinion. the most musical
He proclaimed the lines?
Music that gentlier on the spirit lies
Than tired eyelids upon tired eyes
to be unmatched for melody in any
language. And few would venture to
contradict such a master of music and
tongues. But surely French ranks next
on the roll of languages. For clearness
of dicticji it is unrivaled, and, thanks
to its abundance of vowels (close on
one for every consonant), it flows
rhythmically from the tongue.
An Odd Apology.
This is the classic apology of a celebrated
statesman of the last generation:
"Mr. Speaker, in the heat of debate
I stated that the right honorable

now, in a calmer moment, to state

United States' Note to Asuti
Point That They Must L

Washington, Oec. 9.?The note which
the United States has sent to Austria
-on the sinking of the Italian liner Ancona
was based, it was learned tonight,
primarily upon the (virtual admission
of the Austria-Hungarian admiralty in
its official statement that the ship was
torpedoed before all the passengers
lhad been removed to a place of safety.
It also was stated that the position of
the United States as outlined in its
communication asking reparation for
American lives lost and assurances
that such acts would not be repeated
is that no matter whether a merchantman
stops upon the firing of a warning
shot by a warship or after a pursuit,
all the passengers must be removed
before the vessel is sunk.
| The text of the note was not made
public tonight, as it had been indicated
it would be. Officials of the state de!
partment refused to discuss the com
muni cat. ion in any way, uev/umug even
to admit that it had been sent. It was
said that the failure to give out the
note for publication was due to the
fact tha^ the state department had
not been advised of its arrival at
Vienna.
Austrian in Conference.
Baron Erich Zweidenek, charge o!
the Austro-Hungarian embassy, called
upon Counsellor Polk of the state department
late today, remaining with
him for nearly an hour. Neither Mr.
Polk ncr the charge would reveal the
deiails of their discussion.
Information concerning the principal
factor considered in the framing
| of the- American note was obtained
after it had been said at the state dej
partment that no reply to the list of
I inquiries recently submitted to the
Vienna foreign office through Ambasj
sador Penfield had been received. The
| admissions of the Austrian admiralty
| were contained in an official statement
issued on. November 14 which,
after giving the Austrian version of
the case of the Ancona, continued as

REMARKABLE RECOYERY MADE
BY MRS. D. G. FREE.
Terrible Ailment of Columbia Woman
Quickly Relieved by Wonderful
Tanlac.
! A home made happy, a life given renewed
strength and relief from suffering
which had continued six years and
had reduced her health to that almost
of an invalid?that is the astonishing
J results Mrs. D. G. Free of Columbia
obtained from Tanlac, according to the
statement of her husband, who is pro
prietor of the D. G. Free Furniture
company, 1430 Assembly street.
"I have spent at least $1,000 to secure
relief for her, but Tanlac is the
only medicine which has given her relief,"
said Mr. Free. "I sometimes believe
Tanlac is the medicine the Lord
i sent her," added the grateful husband.
I shall always be glad to recommend
Tanlac, for it is a wonderful medicine.
"My wife suffered terribly with in
digestion, and for six years she was
supposed to be threatened with dropsy
of the stomach, which caused her constantly
increasing suffering. She had
no appetite and was confined to her
bed three-fourths of the time. She employed
servants to do her housework.
When she began taking Tanlac Mrs.
Free was a physical and nervous
wreck, and was steadily becoming
worse, despite all medical science
seemed able to do for her. I was
spending an average of $50 per month
for medical services for her.
"We finally came to the conclusion
that her case was beyond relief. I was
in a desperate frame of mind. Seeing
Tanlac so extensively recommended,
we decided to try it, and the immedia'e
result for her was wonderful.
"After she had taken two bottles the
servants were discharged, and Mrs.
Free began doing her housework,
something she had not done in ye.irs.
Her appetite is good now, and she oats
anything she wants. She is gaining
rapidly in weight, and her pallor has
been replaced by a rosy colci*. She
bears little resemblance to herself as
she was a month ago, and she is in

"It is almost unbelievable that any
medicine could have brought such
wonderful results, but Tanlac surely

cape after receiving orders to stop
and then the crew saved themselveL
and not the passengers.
This statement was accepted here as
an admission that many passengers
were aboard when the Ancona received
hed death blow. Much evidence along
this line has been obtained in depositions
obtained by consular agents from
American citizens. One of these depositions
states positively that the more
seriously injured passengers were left
aboard at the last moment to be carried
down with the ship.
iWhile the United States has insisted
heretofore that vessels carrying noncombatants
should not be sunk without
warning, this is the first case
which, it is said, has developed ths
view of the government as to what
time is considered ample for the purpose
of removing passengers, beyond
the general statement that all passengers
should be given a place of safety,
as provided in the declaration of London.
The position of the United States is
iinrtprs+Aori to be that while no specific
time can be settled upon which would
be applicable in all cases, it is evident
sufficient time was not allowed in this
instance. The Ancona is considered
an extreme case, it being admitted by
all sources of information that a panic
prevailed aboard the ship.

SAFEGUARDING ROYALTY.
?
Precautions In Olden Days When an
English Monarch Was III.
The British law retains some pecollar
provisions with reference to the
"illness of the king." These provisions
are mere survivals in the present settled
order of government, but there
was a time when the king's incapacity
afforded opportunity to aspirants to
fV>i.nnn tn ohnptan hia fla*' of A min
IUC IU1UUC IV OUVt UAW MV imum
risk of detection. Accordingly
certain wise precautions were matters
of law.
In his "Institutes" Coke says. "If
the King be taken sick there ought to
be a warrant issue from the Privy
Council, addressed to certain physi
cians and surgeons, authorizing then
to administer to the Royal patient po
tiones. syrupos. laxitavas. medicinas
etc.; still, none of these should be giv
en except by consent and advice ol
the Councils and they ought to set
down in writing everything done and
administered, and they should com
pound all drugs themselves and not
entrust their preparation to any apothecary."
Coke thus wrote of precedent in
1G10. and today the law is practically
as he found it. alrhough now the privy
council simply bears reports of the
progress of the king's malady and
leaves actual treatment entirely to the
physicians in direct charge of the case.
