Uncle Sam's Armament For New
TONNAGE FIGURES ENORMOUS
Two New Battleships Greater Than
Entire American Fleet at Time of
Spanish War—Fourteen Inch Rifles
Largest In History of World's War
fare and Most Costly.
A its last session the congress au
thorized the construction of titanic
ships of war and stipulated that they
be armed with fourteen inch rifles, the
most powerful weapons 3-et construct
ed. These guns cost $85,000 each, and,
although it seems incredible, yet it
is no less true that under the excessive
pressures of battle conditions the life
of these expensive weapons is only
The distinctive features of these
Dreadnoughts lie in the tremendous
battery which they are designed to
carry and the increased size which the
increase in the weight and power of
the main battery has made necessary.
Th plans contemplate a displace
ment of about 27,000 tons as against
the 20,000 of the Delawar and the
North Dakota, America's pioneer bat
tleships of the Dreadnought type,
which were but recently commissioned.
Greater Than 1898 Fleets.
Th united tonnage of the giant
twins is far greater than as our
entire battleship tonnage at the time
of the a with Spain, including even
the Maine, whose destruction brought
about the war Th fleet that block
aded Santiago as reckoned as a for
midable one in its day the battle
line comprising the superb Iowa, the
heavily armed and armored Indiana,
Massachusetts and Oregon and the
hard fighting old Texas
So much for the size of the on
vessels. Turn to their armament.
Th plans contemplate a battery of
ten fourteen-inch rifles for each ship.
These weapons are by far the most
powerful ever constructed for any navy,
greatly exceeding in range and hitting
power the twelve inch guns with which
the Delawar and the North Dakot a
Wit a weight of 63.3 tons the
gun is more than ten tons heavier
than the twelve inch type carried by
the Dreadnoughts that the United
States now has in commission. Th
weight of the projectile which the
gun will carry is 1,400 pounds. Th
weight of the powder charge will be
about 450 pounds. Th designed muz
zle energy of the weapon is 65,600
Example Is Appalling.
To translate this into plainer Eng
lish and to afford some idea of at
this power means, let the reader sup
pose the 16,000 tons of the battleship
Connecticut emplaced on top of the
Lusitania, whose displacement is 32,500
tons, and the biggest of the Fall River
steamboats superimposed on top of all.
Nex tr^ to conceive of the united
weight of the three and the power that
would be required to lift them. Th
muzzle energy of this gun exerted at
the moment of discharge is so tremen
dous that it would be able to lift all
three vessels one foot.
Th mechanism of the carriage must
in the fraction of a second take up and
absorb a shock equal to that of a
heavy engine and five Pullman coaches
running at a speed of seventy miles an
hour and brought to a sudden stop—a
stop as sudden as though such a train
had smashed into a stone wall. On
leaving the muzzle of the gun the shell
has an energy equivalent to that of a
train or cars weighing 580 tons and
running at sixty miles an hour.
This energy is sufficient to send the
projectile through twenty-tw and one
half inches of the hardest of steel ar
mor at the muzzle, while at a range
of 3,000 yards the projectile, moving
at the rate of 2,235 feet per second,
can pierce eighteen and one-half inches
of steel armor at normal impact.
Life Is Seventy Rounds.
One of the ordnance experts of the
a a some calculations which
go to that if one of these
fourteen inch rifles as constantly
submitted to excessive pressure, such
as might obtain in a hot action, the
gun could not last more than seventy
"The length of the gun is a fraction
more than 53 feet—641 inches, to be
exact. Although the muzzle velocity
of the projectile is 2,600 feet a second,
the ordnance experts a figured that
it requires one-tenth of a second for
the shell to leave the gun, this because
of the fact that the shell from
zero to 2,600 feet and that the mean
velocity must be taken. Thi an
being one-tenth of a second, he actual
gas life of this $85,000 a on is
to be only seconds.
Judgin from the performance of the
twelve inch guns, these greater weap
ons should be able to deliver three
shots a minute. If all ten guns of the
projected Dreadnought should be
brought into action and should main
tain that rapidity of fire for one hour
the cost of the ammunition expended
in the hour would reach the enormous
of $2,520,000, or about one-fourth
of the vessel's entire cost.

Says Postmaster General.
Tha the United States will have a
postal savings bank plan entirely dif
ferent from all other postal savings
schemes and that its superiority over
other systems is a tribute to Yanke
ingenuity are of the facts brought
out in an explanation a recently
by Frank Hitchcock, postmaster
general, concerning his intentions re
garding this new financial feature in
the life of the country.
Mr. Hitchcock has assured himself
that the groundwork has been laid se
curely for the establishment of the
Cash Register Guards Deposits.
Although every other country which
has a postal savings bank system uses
the pass book plan in order to keep
track of the deposits of money, Mr.
Hitchcock, after a conferences it
authorities on savings banks, has de
liberately cut loose from this scheme.
has decided to adopt a plan

It is up to some inventive genius
to put on the market a cash register
which will do the things required for
handling the money intrusted to the
postoffices of the United States.
Deposit Slips at First.
But Mr. Hitchcock has not calculat
ed that the cash register system can
be put into operation at once, first,
because no satisfactory register is on
the market ind secondly, because the
expense of installing the system at
once would be too great.
For the first six months or a year
there will be used deposit slips, han
dled by hand. The wi be in figures
from $1 to $9, and in addiii. :i to these
there will be slips for $10, $20 and $50.
The $10, $20 and $50 slips will be made
out in duplicate, so that there will be
no opportunity for clerks or receiving
tellers to falsify them.
Only the slips running from $1 to $0
will be made out in ink as issued, and
the postmaster general has figured
that there is slight chance of anybody
incurring the danger of the peniten
tiary for the benefit of falsifying any
entry less than $10.
