Uncle Sam Ahead of Em All.
The development of the pnst four years
has not been confined to ships alone. At
the beginning of this administration tie
naval establishment was entirely destitute
of certain eh merits of efficiency, each one
ol which was indispensable to its practical
employment its a fighting force, and the
absence of which, if it had been possessed
of a 100 ships, would still have left it in a
condition of paralysis. These were ti.e
following: Armor, torpedoes and heAy
rapid fire guns, armor piercing shells,
smokeless powder and high explosiv s.
The secretary then notes that the United
States has emerged from its condition of
helplessness at sea in this respect and l.y
the employment otitis own resources hua
distanced its more experienced competitors,
thus mat king an epoch, in the naval .
velc.pment not only of thieonntry, but of
the world. '
riates ol Nickel SteeL
In connection with the development of
nickel steel for armor the department has
undertaken a series of experiments in the
application of this material to other pur
poses of constrtfetion, which promise no
less important results tlmn those already
attained. If the expectations now formed
are realized it will not be long lefore
nickel steel will be extensively used, both
in ships' fr.unes and in marine, engines,
with a marked improvement both in the
strength of the parts and in reduction of
weight, while its non-corrodihle qualities,
already partly demonstrated, point to the
probability that it may ultimately present
a solution for t lie harassing problem of I
preserving tin- sulmiercred platinK of ships.
8lj ie i.f ship UecommenileU.
Another year of experience, of discussion
and of criticism both at home and ubroad
con linns the department in the views
which it adopted in the annual rejMjrt of
1S.VJ as to the policy of construction which
the navy should pursue. The policy then
advocated, which was a radical departure
fron any view previously presented in this
country, consisted in the production of
three principal types: Kirst , the armored
battleship of lO.(K.K) or more tons; second,
armored cruder of from 9,000 to 0,000 tons,
and third, the commerce protecting and de
stroying cruiser of extreme speed," of ",500
. MUST KEEP UP THE WORK.
Foreign Commercial AggreHnion a Menace
Not to He Disregarded.
Of tbe future the secretary says: "Al
though the government and people of
the United Stat es have reason to congratu
late tneuiselves upon the marvelous pro
gress which the mechanical skill of Amer
ica has enabled them to make in tbe recon
struction of their navy, it must not be
supposed that the work has been com
pleted. While our progress, from the fact
that it proceeded from a small beginning
almost.it might be said, from nothing1
has been star ilingly rapid and successful,
other nations building upon well estab
lished foundations have hot been idle, and
the United States is by no in-iang yet in a
condit ion of adequate defense.
Threats Agalnitt Our rronperity.
"In tbe meantime the aggressive policy of
foreign nations, evidences of which have
been pointed out in my previous reports,
has continued, and this country, whether
it will or not, will soon be forced into a po
sition where it cannot disregard measures
which form astauding menace to ita prosper
ity and security. On the. isthmus our com
merce is engaged in a desperate fight to
maintain its foothold. In the south Pa
cific repeated annexations and protectorates
are extending the power and influence of
the maritime states of the Old World. Sub
sidised lines of fitst steamers are complet
ing the circie of maritime communication
on the eastern and western coasts of the
Dominion of Canada, and fortresses daily
increasing in strength are surrounding our
coast upon the south and the east.
More War Vessels Wanted.
"Under these circumstances it is impera
tive to the welfare of this country that the
policy of naval reconstruction so success
fully carried on in the past should suffer
no interruption in the future; that the
vast numbers of skilled artisans who have
been trained in its workshops and in those
of private manufacturers concerned in its
operations should not be thrown ont of
employment; that the work, where the
chief difficulties have been overcame.ehould
not be suffered to languish when every day
shows an improvement both in economy
and in dispatch, and that . with only two
vessels remaining on the stocks, as will
shortly be the case, some further additions
should be made by congrew at the present
Seal Ranter Had bo Show.
Referring to the seal modus Tivendi the
secretary says that the revenue cutter fleet
warned n?rtv -niHit n:it Vfihe fleet of K'"i
the poacCers only jjot.' i? skins all ol
which were captured. He pays a high com
pliment to Commander Evans for the
manner in which that officer performed his
difficult duties in the sealing waters. He
urges the creation of an efficient naval
militia and says it has already a start in
Rhode Island. Maryland, South Carolina,
North Carolina, Massachussetts, Califor

STATISTICS ABOUT RAILWAYS.
Prepared by the Figure Man of the Inter
Washington. Dec. 12. The fourth sta
tistical report of the interstate commerce
commission, prepared by the statistician,
Mr. Case, which has just been submitted,
givesa complete epitome of railway progress
In the United States for the period covered.
It shows in detail the well-known fact that
the United States is the lest equipped
wntntry in the world with reference to rail
ways. The increase in miles last year was
4,St5, something less than the average for
several yers past, Nearly otic half of the
mileage of over 16S,00i) miles is the prop
erty of forty-two companies.
1 e-rease of Men Knijiloyed.
The number of men emplyed increased
during the year 84.SS4, the total numbering
7KS,2Ki. The total capitalisation of t tie
railways of the Uuited Stales was JOA-;.) -475,015.
or $60,043 per mile of line." This
shows an increase in outstanding capital
of (602- per mile of line as compared with
the previous year's report. The grass earn
ings were $1, VM, 761, 305, or $0,801 per mile,
and tbe operat ing expenses were 731.Ki7,
893. There was a decrease of the net earn
ings per mile from that of the previous
year of $.'i7. The number of passengers
carried was 531.183,08, and of tons of
freight 675,608,323. The average revenue
per passenger was 2.142 cents and per ton
freight .0.895 cent. Number killed, 7,029;
wounded, 33,881; of the killed 2,660 were
employes, anil of the wounded 26,140.
More Legislation N"eiesiry.
The report emphasizes more strongly
than previous report the necessity of legis
lation compelling railways to adopt train
brakes and automatic couplers, and also
suggests that some steps be taken besides
the adoption of the train brake to prevent
the frequency of casualties from falling
from trains and engines, and that the block
system shonld be extended and a more per
fect application of personal responsibility
for accident be required. Express com
panies and water carriers should, he says,
be required to report like railways to the
interstate commission, as also should com
panies owning rolling stock.
Is the Inaugural Ball to Go?
Washington, Dec 12. A local paper
says: "A project now on foot among th-t
prominent Democrats who will have charge
of the matter, . and which has been so far
hedged about with the utmost secrecy, is to
do away with the time-honored inaugural
ball. The faintest whisperings have ben
carefully guarded from the public in order
to avoid the tujoyanceotherwise unavoida
ble." It is pr.-iosed in doing away with the
ball to substitute in, its stead "a concert
which should be closed precisely at 13
Little Work Till After the Holiday.
Washington. Dec. 12. It seems to ie
tacitly understood tfciat the senate will not
tackle the auti-oj'tion bill in earnest be
fore the Christmas vacation. And as this
is the unfinished business, it necessarily
follows that no other measucs of impor
tance will be taken tip until after the holi
days, except such as come up in t he morn
ing hour or are taken under consideration
by unanimous consent. Tbe house will
probably put in its time on appropriation
bills, a couple being ready for consideration.

rotftoKtni; Charged Against the Striker
at Homestead Tbe Advisory Commit
tee Alleged To lie Implicated Another
Allegation That the Chier Ctoli at the
Mill Has Confessed.
PlTTsHI Iiti, Dec., r A Sunday paper
published a startling story yesterday of a
conspiracy to poison by wholesale the non
union men at Carnegie steel plant at
Homestead, and a-s a result it is alleged
several persons lost their lives while scores
of others are suffering from the effects of
poisonous drugs. Developments made, it
is said, implicate members of the advisory
committee, members of the Atnalgamau-d
association, and officers of other labor or
ganizations sympathizing with the locked
ont men at Homestead. Yesterday nine or
more persons were under arrest, ostensibly
on less serious charges, but really for the
purpose of averting suspicion until others
in the alleged conspiracy could l appre
hended. The only name given is Robert
Ivany, who was arrested at Louisville
The riot as It Is Reported.
It is stated that the chief cook inside the
Homestead miiis confessed to "having
placed poison in the food prepared for non
union men; that he did so at the instiga
tion of the strikers' committec-s. and that
he was also under pay from thetii as well
as from the Carnegie company. If lie
caused deaths ami sickness sm;ieient to
l'r.ghteu the non-union men from the mid
and compel the closing of the mill he said
he was to receive $5,000. Two assistants
whom be engaged to aid him in his plot, it
is stated, became frightened and informed
i : iik ol the crime. This led to the arrest
of the chief cook, and as stated stave he
made a full confession.
Confirmed by a Carnegie Lawyer.
The matter wtus kept quiet. The work
men were instructed to get their meals
outside. The cook and two assistant were
kept in the mill under close surveillatn e.
During the time that meals were piepared
inside a number of workman became sick
and Charles Glossier died two weeks after
going to Homestead. Frick iosjtively re
fused to be interviewed on the subject last
niijbt. E. I. Heck, counsel for the Carnegie
Steel company, was seen last night and
confirmed the story of the poisoning.
Killed a Hog in a Few Minutes.
He says his information is that at least
six deaths resulted from poisoning. A
Homestead druggist and a physician are
implicated.' The powder was given to a
dog, and it died in a few minutes. A num
ber of arrests will probably be made in a
few days. Corouer McDowell has not yet
been notified. He will go to Homestead,
however, today, to investigate the cause
of the death of Isaac Juries, who died sud
denly about two weeks ago. Juries was a
witness in the Critchlow case. The coroner
is of the opinion that death was due to
The Story Somewhat Discredited.
Superintendent Cowan, of tbe West,
Penn hospital, said last tight that about
forty or fifty cases from Homestead were
received at that institution, but they were
of men injured in the mills or victims of
diseases arising from natural causes. "We
had no cases whatever," said Superintend
ent Cowan, "in which there were any iu ii
tions of poison having been used." At the
Homeopathic hospital Dr. Shields siid
there was no evidence of poison in any of
the cases received there during the Ilome

leaving for Dallas, where he h.vl
been appointed to the pastorate of
the First Methodist church, an im
becile fellow named C. II. Siegel
walked up as if to shake hands with the
preacher, but instead of giving him his
hand drew a razor across his thro.it. The
blood spurted, and the preacher staggered
back, remarking: "You have killed me."
Siegel then cut bis own throat, but failed
to sever either the jugular or the wind
pipe. A Gash Five Inches Ing.
Mr. Spragins' wound is five inches in
length and several inches deep. His jugu

fat Tinder his chin. Private telegrams from
Henrietta Sunday afternoon report Mr.
Spragins as in a serious condition. Siegel,
who has no business and lives with his
mother-in-law, has always been regarded
as harmless. He was a member of Mr.
Spragin's congregation and manifested
great fondness for bis pastor.
