LESSON OF THE
Brother of J. R. Kimball,
.Value of Torpedo Boats.
The following interview with Capt.
W. V. Kimball, U. S. X., a brother of
James II. Kimball, appeared in the
Daily Picayune, of New Orleans, Feb.
"There is absolutely nothing new
or surprising in the fact that a prop
erly handled and property organized
torpedo boat flotilla has again proved
the efficiency of that kind of service,"
declared Capt. V. YV. Kimball, U. S. X.,
in dUcufing the fight at Port Arthur,
t'apt. Kimball arrived here with his
family a fw days ago, and went to
the St. Charles hotel. Yesterday he
entereJ upon his duties as the suc
cessor f Commander Wilson, of the
"I'liite;! States lighthouse district.
"It only another accentuation of
the fact that any navy which neglects
or tares its torpedo boat serice
will find itself in a had may when the
proof of the efficiency conies. I have
always held that three fairly wcll-
ecju:pied torpedo loats could, on a
moonless night, in moderate weather.
account for the niost'powerful battle
ship in the world within the radius
of action t.f the boat..
"The Japs are, perhaps, the best
torjH-flo boatmen in the world, and
they showed their quality as such at
Wei-Ilai-Wei in the Japan-( hina war,
but aside from this they have common
-ense organization and drill in their
torpedo boat flotilla.
"There has never lieen any proof of
efficiency of the American torpedo
boats, as fr as I know, for the rea
son that there has not beer, a real
torpedo boat attack drill.
"The conimamler of the Russian
fleet at Port Arthur should not be
condemned tor lack of vigilance."
continued Capt. Kimball," for he could'
never have prevented the Japanese
torpedo boats front attacking his
squadron if he had 500 ships. Possi
bly he did not picket his vessels far
enough out, but if he had the Japs
would have sneaked in, under cover
of darkness, and done precisely the
same thing. It is absolutely impossi
ble to prevent a torpedo attack on a
moonless night in fair weather. The
loss of six torpedo boats is nothing if
one battleship can be sunk by their
sacrifice, and I vvoulil surrender two
tn o'isuhie a ship of this character."
Capt. Kimball stated that the suc
cess of the Japanese torpedo boats at
Port Arthur has shown the utility of
these vessels. e said tlicv are in
valuable, and no nation can well do
without them. The Cnitcd States
navy shoul:! have at least ISO to make
American naval power what it should
be. They can perforin tremendous
iood in any war. and on dark nitrhts
i skilled commander, like the Japs.
can destroy and disable almost nn
fleet, as no amount of vigilance can
prevent them from sneaking in and
planting a few deadly torpedoes.
"It is palpable that the Japanese
naval officers will avail themselves of
their superior t rpedo strength in 4ill
battles with Russia," resumed the
captain. "In the open tights they will
prove valuable, and when the enemy's
ships are anchored, in either Chemul
po or Ylaciivostoi k. the Japs will send
I heir torpedo boats in and accomplish
the same excellent work thev did at
Capt. Kimball is a world's acknowl
edged expert tin torpetloes and torpe
do bo;its. He has made a special and
careful study of this branch of the
service, and through his extraordinary
knowledge of the proper handling of
boats of such make he was placed in
command of the torpedo boat flotilla
during the war with Spain. He would
iiave entered Santiago harbor and at
tempted- the destruction of Cervera's
fleet there by torpedoing- the ships on
a dark night with the full sanction of
the late Admiral Samwon? had it not
been for the moral effect a failure
would have had on the crews of the
other American ships stationed theri.
This was not dime, because the sink
ing of three torpedo lxats would have
produced the same feeling as if a sim
ilar number of the large battleships
had been sunk.
As an advocate for more torpedo
lonts in the American navy. Capt.
Kiinha!! has won international fame.
ICxpressions of opinion by him on
subjects of torpedo boats, torpedoes,
and ."lso thesubmarine torpedo boats,
generally have a pronounce 1 effect on
the world's naval experts, who look
upon his views as ln-ing an unques
"We have about thirty toriedo
boats." continued the famous exjwrt.
"but we should have at least ISO.
With our sea coast to defend we need
them. The fact that Spain failed to
take advantage of their utility nnJ
also because the American officers
had no chance to show the boats'
worth, should not le taken to indi
cate their inferiority. In that war no
real pood opportunity presented itself
to make use of them, but if we had
leen aide to bring them into actual
service. I will guarantee the results
would have been productive of the
same satisfactory outcome as shown
by the .l;ips at Port Arthur.
"It is astont.diing the amount of
damage that can be perpet rated by n
fUOilla of torpedo boats. Any two
under the care of a skillful officer
can sink the largent first class battle
ship afloat. One racing toward it at
ft high rate of speed to strike on the
port si ie of the hip while the other
makes for the starloard side will
worry the commander of the battle
ship to death. Nothing will prevent
the men from firing at one boat, tem
porarily leaving the other alone, and
when both boats are coming together
those aboard the big fellow will get
of This City, Talks of
rattled, and. though they may disable
one torpedo boat, the other will suc
ceed in getting sufficiently close to
blow the ship to atoms. This is the
inevitable result, and when an entire
flotilla is directed at a fleet of battle
ships and cruisers, the results are
bound to be disastrous for the large
In a special article that appeared in
the Forum in 1S09, learing on the op
erations of the American torpedo
boats, under command of Capt. Kim
ball, in the Spanish war, the follow
ir.g pertinent references were made
to their utility:
"As has been stated, we have built
a few torpeiio boats. We are building
a few more, apparently not for serv
ice, but for the purpose of giving con
tracts s;nd practice to our hoatbuild-
ers. since the boats are of all shapes
an J si..vs. and the few completed ones
are not being used to develop a tor
pedo boat servic. or, in fact, for any
purpose whatever. Uut really we have
a gooj excuse. We were very much
frightened by three Spanish torpedo
boat craft, but when Spanish lack of
enterprise prevented their use against
us, and, moreover, the Spanish took a
couple of them out in daylight, in
face of the fire of a strong fleet, to
certain destruction, and even, then
made no attempt to utilize their real
power of attack, we were so relieved
that our joy took the form of assur
ing ourselves that we had not been
scared at all; that torpedo boats were
useless; that we would never use ours
again, and that there were no good
torHdo boats in the world.
"Our normal composure will be re
gained after a lime; and then we shall
be in a condition to accept the well
known fact that three fairly good,
fairly well-handled torpedo boats can.
on a moonless night, force the best
battleship in the world off her block
ading station, or put her hors de com
bat. We may even appreciate the fact
that submarine torpedo boats furnish
more insurance towards war losses
per dollar expended in in-nr:;nce than
any other form of defense at present
"This .proposition might be highly
absurd if it included any i lea that we
should take the lead in developing a
new kind of war material; but it lines
not. France is already providing her
self with submarine boats; and it
would seem possible that we might at
once copy her instead of waiting until
all the-re: t of the world had adopted
the idea, especially as we have already
gone through our usual preliminary
pioces.s of reiecting this war device
a device developed in our own country
by private enterprise, and one of the
greatest value to a country situated
like our own in regard to the necessi
ties of coast defense.
"Fifteen years ago a private citizen
of this country led the world in suc
cessful submarine boat designing and
experience. It was clear that prac
ticable submarine boats would be of
the greatest economical use; since an
inexpensive boat, with a small crew
could move up to a battleship, by day
or by night, in face of her lire and
searchlights, and could force her to
leave her blockading station or could
sink her. In other words, in the pres
ence of defensive submarine torpedo
boats, blockades could not exist, nor
could bombardments be attempted. It
was also clear that the development
of submarine torpedo boats presented
fewer difficulties than did that of -jur-face
torpedo boats. It was clear, too,
that we had it in our povve.- to titke
advantage of the great change in na
val methods that must follow the ap
pearance of submarine boats to lead
the world, in fact, to our economical
advantage, instead of following, and
paying the cost of cur slowness.
"The submarine lnat idea was funi
bled with a bit. and then practically
dropped, just as was the magazine
gun idea a third of a century ago. In
the case of the gun, we proved its
utility in the war of the rebellion; and
then, instead of developing it. we
dropped it altogether, and delightedly
adopted an obsolute single loader.
"In the case of the submarine boat,
as I have said, we dallied with Ihe
idea, brought into play our ever-effective
way of how not to do it. by
exercising the seesaw lwtween the
legislative and executive branches of
the government, and then practically
dropped the matter. Meanwhile, France,
appreciating what the submarine
meant to her, and failing to get good
results along her exjerimental lines
of development, seized on the general
principles of the American design, de
claring in her leading technical jour
nal that it was the first submarine
boat constructed on rational data, and
applied its principles, so far as they
were puhliey known, to the submarine
flotilla she was then constructing.
"The more valuable and practic
able features of the American design
are still held in this country. 'and it
will be amusing to observe whether
we utiiie them rr not. It will be in
teresting to note whether we accept
the device that can be most economi
cally strengthen our weak defenses
and give us most war insurance at
least ro?t, or whether: being still join
ed to our idoU of indifference, we let
Uniformity in construction rf all
types of naval construction come in
for unstinted praie by Capt. Kimball.
Hedeplorcd the practice of heterogene
ous building of battleyhrps, cruisers
and torpedo boats by the American
government on the basis that, when
vessels are built from entirely dis
similar plans and specifications, the
facility of becoming accustomed to
their diversified characteristics by our
officers is complicated and has a ten
dency to create certain amount of
uneasiness. He would advocate the
construction of all ships on the same
lines anU after the same identical de
signs, according to the very latest ad
vanced and modern principles of naval
architecture. According to his state
ment, the ships in the United States
navy are radically different from each
other, and when an officer assumes
command of one. after surrendering
charge of the other, he has to begin
learning all about the particular ves
sel's peculiarities; .whereas, if both
had been constructed similarly, this
extra annoyance would have been
"One of the notable advantages of
the Japanese navy is that its ships are
practically built alike." said Capt
Kimoall. "The Japs know their craft
like n book, and when thev r.re trans
ferred to one vessel, they know from
the outset that their new command is
identically the same, and there is no
need of learning how to run the ship.
In the American navy, the later the
battleship the more difficult tire the
details of construction, and vet there
is really no great advantage gained by
the alteration. A standard of unifor
mity should be adopted, grading it up
to modern ideas and maintained at
that level, because we all know that
battleships and cruisers have about
reached the zenith of perfection.
"In the Russian navy, heterogeneous
construction applies the same as It
does to the American ships, and, nat
urally, the Russian officer has the
same troubles to surmount as we
have; while the Japs, clinging tech
nically to similar construction, are
familiar with every rivet in their
Yesterday Capt. Kimball, who ar
rived here several days ago, assumed
command of the Xew Orleans Light
district, with offices on the third floor
of the custom house.
In conclusion. Capt Kimball repudi
ated emphatically the belief that the
Japanese ships are' officered by Eng
lish officers. On the contrary, he said,
the Japs knew too much about naval
warfare to employ the services of for
eigners, and, moreover, the Americans
cannot, show them anything, so far
advanced are the mikado's men.
