HEW CRAFT W LL
HE BATTLfesUlV DELAWARE 18
LAUNCHED AT NEWPORT
WILL HAVE NEW FEATURES
HeK buns'1 are to be Arranged 8d at
I to Allow a Broadside Fire 25 Per
I , Cent Greater than that of
l Any Other Ship.
Newport News, Va., Feb. 6. Cora
pated with the battleships, completed
jt -tinder construction, of the navy ot
any foreign country, the Delaware,
which vfls launched hero to-day,
surpasses all. She Is one of four sis
ter ships authorized by congress
wlilch will form an tnddmltable
cd.dadron. The other vessels are the
North Dakota, being built at Qulncy,
Muhtft: the Florida, which will be
blillfat the NuW York navy yard, and
thei Utah, to bo built at Camden, N. J.
The Delaware la to carry ns heavy
arntor-and aB powerful armament as
any known vessel of Its class; will
Lave a speed of 21 knots, which Is
believed to be the highest practicable
for a vessel of this type and class,
mid will 'have the highest practicable
radius of uctlon. The arrangement
ot her main battery guns Is such as
to permit u broadside lire 25 per cent
greater than that of the broadside
fire of any battleship now built, or,
bo far as is known, under construe
tlori. Her defensive qualities, other
than 'those dependent upon armor
protection, are such us to give the
maximum degree of protection to all
the vital portions by means of un
usually effective compartmental sub
division, so that In conjunction with
her armor protection, the defensive
qualities of this vessel are believed
to be distinctly superior to those of
any battleship hitherto designed.
The hull Is protected by u wuter
line belt of armor eight feet In width,
whoso maximum thickness Is 11
lliches. This armor belt elves eftec-
jflve protection to the boilers, machln-
ry and magazine spaces. The side
above the main armor belt is pro
tected by armor seven feet three in
ches wldo and of u maximum thick
ness of ten Inches. Above the main
casemate armor amidships the side
s protected by armor of tlve inches
hlckness, which affords protection to
the smoke pipes, the major portion
dJ the secondary batteries of llve-ii'ch
nuns, and the hull structure.
,Tho plans for tho Delaware were
prepared by tho board of construc
tion in competition with plans sub
mitted by various naval architects
rind shipbuilding companies and sub
mitted to a special board nnd later
approved by congress.
The contract for the Delaware was
placed Aucust C, 1907, at a price of
$3,987,000. Tho Delaware Is BIO feet
in length on load water line, 85 feet
two Inches In breadth and her mean
draft to bottom of keel at trial dis
placement about 27 feet. Her coal
bunker capacity Is 2, COO tons, which
Is1 stlfllclent to send her at a ten-knot
spaed a dlstanco of 0,720 knots, or 28
days' steaming. Provision Is also
made for the stowage ot a large
amount of oil fuel without in any de-greo-
reducing the capacity of the coal
bunkers. She will have triple expan
sion reciprocating engines and will
teqdtro over 900 men to man her.
Her armament will consist of a
main battery of ten 12-Inch breech
loading rifles, and her secondary bat
ter will bo 14 five-Inch rapid fire
gunst four three-pounder oalutlng
guns, four one-pounder soml-nutoma-tttt
Buns, two three-inch field pieces
nnd two machine guns, of 30 culiber.
'The Delaware will have a displace
ment on trial of 20,000 tons, or 2,100
tons greater than tho British Dread
cavpht and 7C0 tons greater tunn
Great Britain's latest vessel of that
typo, the Vanguard.

RAILROADING IN KANSAS.
A Gam of Chance at Timet Under
the. Law Protecting Fmployees.
, "Kansas 1b a great State," said the
man whoso busluesB keeps him Jump
ing from town to town in tho sunflower
country, "all except tho railroad, and
these sure did bother mo In tho few
months that I, a raw Easterner, spent
In tho State.
"It Is a gamo of chanco sometime!
to get from one place, and It Isn't all
due to the fact that the further you get
away from New York the more rail
road schedules go awry. They have
n law in Kansas that no railroad em
ployee shall work more than sixteen
hours on a stretch, and that's what
plays tho dickens.
"A few superb trains pass through
ICaiiBOS that's what they do, pass
through, Bcnrcely stopping long
enough to say howdy. They aro going
to the Coast or returning, imd once
lu a while I can make n tiip KdBtern
style, but for tho Bhort lortil trips
that my business demands It's mixed
freight and passenger trains mdst of
"Here's whero tho law to protect
employes woiks like a wheel of for
tune. Tho schedule may call for arri
val ht a particular place lu ample
tlmo for the crows to bo Changed le
gally, but If rt lot of freight IS to bo
handled nt preceding slopping places
tho delay may bo so great that tho
sixteen hour limit may cxplie mlleu
mid miles short of destination.
"If this limit doeii bo expire there's
nothing for It but to run the tialn to
tho next place that resembles a atop,
If It's only tt siding, and lay It oIT.
The tlext train that coincs along
doubles up vvlth tho Btnlled train and
takes tho law protected trainmen
along as pasiengeis.
"They musn't work, mind you, until
eight hours have elapsed. Occasionally
there Is no next train for mote than
eight hours. In that case the crew,
having had Its legal n-ct, may resume
"This Is gospel ti'utli I'm telling you,
for I have been iield tip In those stal
led trains many a time.
"Oho night I was going up tho Lin
coln branch ot tho Union Paclllc hop
ing to rpach Marysvlllo late that night.
The train had only ono passenger car.
There wus triot of way freight and wo
kept losing nnd losing time.
"Tho sixteen hour limit of work for
that crow catno at midnight, when wo
were nbout twclvo miles out of Marys
vlllo. We weio near a Biding and Into
this wo i an propaied to wait for an
other train or for tho eight hours to
"Thero wasn't a sign of a Jiouho
unywhero, so tho passengers, only six
men then, spent the night ns best they
could In tho car. Tho trainmen hod
the more comfortable, caboose.
"Thoro wo stuck until daylight. I-Io
itoxt train had como then, so tho six
of us trudged, along, until wo found a
farmhouse. "Wo got tho farmer to
drive us Into Marysvlllu and beat tho
train In ut that."
What Kind of Noise is Worst.
Many a nervous woman hns occa
sion to consider what kind ot a noise
Is most likely to banish sleep.' It Is
not strange that tho crusado agaliiBt
unnecessary nolso should bo led by a
woman, nud that sho should find
thousands ot eager suppoiters among
her sox. The country and tho city
present different problems to tho seek
or for quiet. The steady roar ot tho
city street Is often less trying than
than the persistent crow of the early
rlslng looster or tho clang ot tho cow
bell. The neighbor who sifts coal ash
es before tho light belongs to tho
same class with tho ono who narrates
his family affairs at dawn under tho
window in a loud and cheerful volco.
The shriek of tlio(wlIlstlo, the call ot
the newsboy, tho rattle of the milk
cart are all "trlulsomo,'' as a certain
old lady used to say ot her thlldreti,
hut perhaps tho most unforgivable
nolso for a seusltlvo person -Is ono
which occurs at slightly Inegular In
tervals, and tor a long peilad. The
drip of a water-pipe, tho whine of a
dog, tho slam ot a blind thoso aro
tho noises which destroy temper and
Bleep, oven for well women, When ono
has struggled through a night tor
tured by such objcctlounblo clamors,
one realizes the full meaning of tjio
