LAUNCHING A GREAT VESSEL.
An Army of 9?fn Stitrt the Ship Down the
All the props have been taken down
except a few that reach only a little
way up the sides. A platform with a
railing;, on-which the stalwart work
men may rest the stout pieces of tim
ber they use as batterinjr-rams when
they are driving home the wedges, has
been erected alonjj the sides of the
ship. There are nearly six hundred
workmen distribted alonp; the sides,
in jfajiffs t.f four each. Each pan"; has
five wedges to look after. The time
set for the launch is just before high
water, where the stream has a tide.
A dredge has been used directly in
the path the vessel will take when
she makes her plunge, so that she may
strike no obstructions. Every part of
the ways has been inspected. If the
weather is cold, lard-oil has been min
gled with the tallow to make it soft;
and if the weather is warm, stearine
has been mixed with it to make it hard.
It is about an hour before the time
for the ship to move. The workmen
are summoned and the signal is given
for the "first rail'." All at once a
great din arises. It is as if an army
of street-pavers were at work beneath
the ship. If you peer through the
crowd you will see the men drawing
back the battering-rams and then pro
jecting them sharply against wedge
after wedge. This vork continues for
four or live minutes, and then an in
spection is made. It is necessary that
the wedges be driven in uniformly.
The effect of this rally seems imper
ceptible. It has resulted, however, in
driving the packing close up against
the sides of the ship, and, when that
was accomplished, has driven the slid
ing ways doivn hard upon the station
ary ways, squeezing out the tallow
here and there, liut the ship still rests
upon the keel-blocks.
After a rest of fifteen or twenty min
utes a second rally comes. This is
more spirited than the first- In go the
wedges, and the great hull seems to
tremble just the least bit. She is be
ginning to rest on the launching ways.
At last she is raised the smallest frac
tion of an iuch above the Ueel-blocks.
Now comes the time for quick work.
IIre is where the "pioneers" begin to
swing their axes. One gang of men
rushes up to the few props that are
still resting against the sides of the
hull. Quick blows are given, timbers
and chips begin to fly, and prop after
prop falls tothe ground. Another gang
of men is rushing after the pioneers.
They are the painters, and with long
brushes on the ends of poles, they daub
over the places where the props rested,
which could not be painted until the
props were taken away.
Underneath the ship another gang
of men is making havoc with the keel
blocks. Sharp chisels are being in
serted on the sides of the blocks, and
sledges are used as the workmen come
tip from the river toward the bow,
knocking this way and that the blocks
which haye been the support of the
ship ever since she was first laid down.
At last, apparently after much confu
sion, but really in accordance with a
careful system, all the keel-blocks are
knocked away, and the supreme mo
ment has arrived. All the wedges
have been driven home, and their outer
edges are in a line as straight as a file
of soldiers on dress parade. The ship
rests on an entirely new foundation
and a very treacherous one. There
are no side-supports to keep her from
toppling over. The toboggan slides
are ready for work, and they must be
true in their inclination, and in their
horizontal position, or the ship will be
wrecked as she goes sliding down to
wards the water. She is held entirely
by the stout piece of timber that
clamps the stationary and sliding ways
together just underneath the bow.

The Anti-English Feeling In the German
Empire May Lead to International Strife
Emperor William and People I'uaiil
mons In Their Determination to Support
the ISoera in Securing Their Independ
ence of England.
Bekux, Jan. 6. The Mnperor's act
in sending a message to President Krc
ger, of the South African republic,
congratulating him upon the victory of
the Boers over the armed forces led
into the Transvaal by Dr. Jamieson,
administrator of the British South Af
rica Co., is hailed with enthusiasm
throughout Germany and will add
greatly to his majesty's popularity as
being a true interpretation of the in
tensity of German public hostility to
ward Great Britain. The message of
the emperor could not have been a very
great surprise to the English govern
ment, as some days prior to the publi
cation of the messajre the emperor in
structed Count Von Ilatzfelilt. the Ger
man ambassador to Great Britain, to
inform Lord Salisbury w ith the ut
most frankness that it was the tirtn
determination of Germany r.ottoal
low the government of the South
African republic to i e overthrown.
At the .same time Count Von Hatzfel.lt
was instructed to demand an explana
tion of the movements of the authori
ties of the British South Africa Co.
These representations were iiumedi
Etely answered by the British foreign
ollice. The first replies made by Lord
Salisbury were deemed unsatisfactory,
so much so, indeed, that the relations
of the two governments on Wednes
day became so strained as to be on the
point of absolute rupture. The con
sequence was that a diplomatic sur
render on the part of Lord Salisbury
was the only thing that averted the
Even now, although the situation
is modified, it is not devoid of danger,
and the summaries of the comments of
the English press upon the emperor's
interference in the Transvaal affair,
which were published here, serve to
heighten the popular anger against
England, while the anti-English feel
ing pervades all classes of the German
press. Every political party and
group, the socialists included, side
with the Boers and denounce the ag
gression of England. The North Ger
man Gazette quotes, with expressions
of approval, the declaration of the
Cologne Gazette that the Transvaal
republic is an absolutely independent
state, and the Deutsche Tages Zeitung
says that not only the road to Con
stantinople, but also the road to Jo
hannesburg lies through Berlin. Sev
eral newspapers with government af
filiations and inspirations concur in
these expressions, and that the alli
ance between Russia ami France has
been enlarged by the accession of the
triple alliance to a concert of Euro
pean powers with anti-English aims.
A number of papers are exulting in
the isolation of England, and predict
that her lonely situation will become
an important factor in the settlement
of the Venezuelan difficulty.
The youth, the brawn and sinew of
Germany are moved to offer active as
sistance to the liers. while their elders

Dr. Carl Peters, the explorer, was
charged by the Dutsche Colonial Ges
solschaft held yesterday, to send a
cablegram to President irnger of the
Boer republic expressing the sympa
thy of the society with liira and his
cause and promising active and mate
rial support. A private syndicate ha
raised the sum of .100.000 marks for th
purpose of organizing a corps of vol
unteers to go to the Transvaal, and
similar offers have been plentiful.
Among other offers is that of a number
of young Americans, studying in Ger
many. The sum of the position is that Great
Britain must withdraw her pretensions
to a right to interfere in the Trans
vaal and punish the leaders of the
British South Africa Co. who are re
sponsible for the invasion of the Boer
territory, or she will inevitably be
come involved in a collision with Ger
many. A formal German protectorate
over the South African republic is not
designed, but the government of Ger
many will support the Transvaal re
public in declaring the convention of
1SS4 void, thus enabling the Boers to
obtain their full independence of Great
Virtually England's claims to suze
rainty over the Transvaal must in all
respects be abolished. If the South
African republican shall ask a ref- '
erence of the matters in dispute le
tween itself and England, the ques
tions will be referred to the European
powers which are interested in Africa,
and Germany will support such a con- '
ference. France can be relied upon t.
take part, and if a conference is had it j
will greatly disappoint German expec- j
tation if the discussion of the ques
tions involved does not result in recog
nition of the independence not only of
the Transvaal, but of the Orange Free
State as well.
It is not denied here that reform in
the administration of the internal af
fairs of the South African republic is
advisable, but these must be obtained
without the application of foreign
pressure, British or any other, as
strictly questions for internal settle
ment. Little or no sympathy is be
stowed upon Dr. Jamieson, and Mr.
Chamberlain's appeal to President
Kruger to deal generously with
the British South African prisoners
