The striking of the baggagemen will no doubt seriously affect the trunk lines. Railroad strikes are good deal like a young fellow driving with his girl they tie up the lines. The strike has got pretty far along without Governor Waito getting in his oar; he surely cau't know about iL Today June finishes up with a record of rare days that it will make July hitch up a little closer to the sun to beat Wn at a terrible thinar it would be if congress should get ready to go home and couldn't on account of the strike! Eves slow and melancholy Missouri has had a murder and hung the mur derers while Illinois still dallies with Prendergast. The dropping of Pullman cars will re sult in many a tramp giving up his sum mer outing. He couldn't think of going without his sleeper. The French may be very sorry that President Carnot was killed but since he is dead it is such fun to buy flowers and go to a gre-.t big funeral. The Populi3ts of Alabama have thirty-eight out of sixty-six of the county election canvassing boards. Down south this is equivalent to election. The Missouri Pacific employes surely won't be so thoughtless as to strike, it might compel Ge rge Gould to give up bis yachting trips in England. Governor Lkweli.inq condemns the Pullman porters more than he does the company itself. The governor thin its he knows a tyrant when he sees him. Dispatch from Washington in the Daily Trumpet, judgment day, "Senator Hill moved in the senate to strike out bee. relating to the income tax." It would be interesting as well as novel to see how things would be if the railroad employes of the country owned the attorney general of the United States. General Artz says he didn't go with the wealera because they dida't need him. He soems to have labored under some misapprehension when he came back to Topeka. The plan of the Nebrarka veterans to put Carnegie and Frick behind armor plates when they are tested may be a trifle mediaeval but it would be a sure cure for blow holes. Jcdok Webb of Atchison has decided that the playing of an organ by people who don't know how to play, or who don't know at least more thai two changes, is a nuisance. If the decision will stick, it deserves to be called the new Magna Charts. The supposititious drummer who de scribed Dick Blue to a Chicago news paper man as '-a tall, gaunt, picturesque figure," gave strong evidence of a grand picturesqueness himself in the matter of distorting truth. The house in trusting to the good sense of the senate to defeat bills that it passes for the sake of show, has found it has been' placing confidence in some thing that doesn't exist. Franklin McVeagh, the Democratic candidate for United States senator in Illinois, is a mugwump. The mugwump realizes that this administration will about finish his political days and he is making the most of favorable conditions. One of the Democratic sugar trust senators is reported as saying, "We own Allen; we have bought him with free lumber and free barbed wire." In the face of such examples as this Senator Quay's impudent frankness ssems almost commendable. Since congressmen are now being- ap pealed to personally by the Coxeyites for "a little assistance" they see how much easier It would have been to give away several millions of of the people's money and wonder they didn't think, of NO CAUSE FOR PRIDE VET IF WE KEEP ON WE WILL SOON HAVE A NAVY. Our War Teasels Contrasted With ThoM of Other Great Powers Some Carious Facta. Strange Fluctuation In AmHcw Ship ping; A Rema.rka.blo Decline. Special Correspondence. Washixgton, June 28. When the av erage American citizen walks through the beautiful halls of the naval depart ment and Bfa the fine models of our war vessels, when he notes the activity there find at the navy yards, or even when he reads of the magnificent record for speed made by our new ships, bis heart swells with pride, and ha anticipates a speedy rtturn of the glorioas days of our navy the days of Paul Jones, Hull and Law rence, of Perry, Decatur and. the heroes of our civil war. National pride is a good thing, hut le3t, it beeojnes excessive let us look at the actual facts and contrast oar navy with that of other nations, at tho close of the fiscal yer.r. In his ; first message to congress, December, 1SS3, President Cleveland say: "All : must admit the importance of an effect- ive navy to a nation like ours having j Buch an extended seacoast to protect. And yet we have not a single vessel of war that could keep the seas ag-aLust a first class vessel of any important pow er. A Contract With Other Nations. At the opening of the present congress Secretary Herbert quoted that statement and said that wo had not even yet in commission a "single vessel of war that could keep the seas against a first class vessel of any important power," bat that four such were in process of construc tion. In 1S85 there was no establish ment in this country that could turn out armor for modern vessels, none that could forgo a modern gun of more than six inch caliber, none that could make automobile torpedoes, modern rapid fire guns or powder for the highest power guns. Secretary Whitney at once began the work for these and many other need ed things, and we ..re just beginning to j realize the results. Some of the ccn- ' trasts are astonishing. We Ptill have but three torpedo boats proper, while England has 227, France 223,. Italy 179, Russia 166, and bo on down to little Portugal, ths lowest in the list, which ha3 9. Even China has 32 and Japan 30, and in ill foreign countries there are now 197 in process of construction, all of greatly increased sizj and speed. These should not be coniounded with the tor pedo cruisers to be named hereafter. We have completed, approved and in commission 15 full armored vessels of which we are justly proud, beginning with the famous Puritan, built by John Roach. It is a pity that no general sys tem was adopted in naming our -v essels, as is shown by ,uch a list as the Mian tonoraoh, Amphitrita, Monterey, Katuh din, Ajax, and so on, five languages be ing laid under contribution and the gods and heroes of every aj,e from Agamem non to Ericsson. Striking a balance on those soon to be completed and the old ones barely fit for use, it may bo said we have 13 single turret monitors, 82 unarmored steel vessels of every class, 6 iron steam vessels, 10 wooden steam vessels, 6 wooden sailing vessels and 12 steel, iron and wooden steam tugs. Of the 19 war Vessels of every kind in process of construction at the beginning of this congress six have been completed, and the secretary says that all will be in ac tive service by the close of the fiscal year 1S96. The total appropriation for the naval department for the year now end ing was 422,104,061. 3S, while that tor the coming year at least, as it passed the house is $25,280,W6.27. What It Costa to Lot a Xavjr Rat. A glance over the figures eiace the foundation of our government presents some very carious contrasts and ciupLa sizes some points which, have been the subject of much scandal, but have never been explained. A satisfactory history of the naval department for the 10 years ! succeeding the war has ntver been writ ten, and it i? too soon to write it. Tha government in 1863 owned over COO ves sels of all kinds, and naval movements necessarily ceased at once, and yet the naval appropriation for the fiscal year 1S66 was f 43,2S5,0G2, and for the four years endinsr with 1SC9 the agreate was- $120,000,000. Much of this is of course accounted for by the payment of retiring sailors and oCicers and back claims. It was therefore promised and confidently expected that nval exper ses would be rapidly reduced. In fat, they rapidly increased until the appropria tion for the fiscal year 1S74. was .$o0,032, 5S7. All this time the navy was run ning down so rap'dly iiat it became a subject for jeers and laughter, and to the enormous appropriations should iu justice be added the amount realized by the sale of old material. To realize the contrast take no'-ice that for the fiscal year 1S92, when the Harrison adminis tration was straining every nerve to hasten the completion of the vessels au thorized, the appropriation was but $31, 541,645, or but a trifle mere ti an for 1874. The people cati easily understand why it should take over 30.000.C0 per year to build a splendid L.avy, but why it took &3 much to let a navy rot is as yet unexplained. The ngures tor the early years of our history are laughable in comparison. In 1794 the total appropriation was but $61,4:08, and when the Federalists got excited over the prospective war with France and became, as the JefTersonians said, perfectly reckless, they expended for the year 1300 only $3, 443,716. Twelve years passed before that sum was reached again, and in the glorious year of 181415 the expenditures were only $8,660,000. Thirty-three years passed before this sum was again reach ed, and it was not again exceeded till 1803. The wooden vessels of those days were cheap indeed, and when Commo dore Perry rejoiced greatly over obtain ing gxms of large ealiber it probably never entered his imagination in its wildest momenta that in 80 years his government -would be rising cannon one discharge of which costs $400, Tlie Navies of Europe. And yet we are so far behind some other nations that we can only wonder at their recklessness or sympathize with them in their necessities. The British parliament baa but lately appropriated for the fiscal year 1895 & little over $80, 000,000, and 10 first class battleships and 42 cruisers are now in process of con struction in the English navy yards. Italy is in such financial straits thfet she is en the verge of revolution, but her minister of marine has recently ordered 8 first class battleships, 3 cruisers, 12 tor pedo boats and 4 immense transports, the battleships to have from 11,000 to 12,000 tons displacement and a speed of 19 knots. France now Las 11 armored battleships in construction and 16 unar nrored but protected cruisers, besides 7 armored cruisers of the second class and various torpedo, dispatch and coast de fense vessels. Ia Germany tho naval budget is still under discussion, but the lowefet estimate is for 8 armored battle ships, 6 coast defense vessels, 8 torpedo boats and 7 unarmored vessels of various grades. At this point a bit of history is in or der illustrating the strange fluctuations in American shipping. The first vessel worthy of the name constructed in North America was made by the Spaniards on the west coast of Mexico, where they established a shipyard in 1524, and not many years later they had a very fine ship for those times, in which Don Juan Cabrillo sailed up the coast and entered the bay of San Francisco. On tho gulf of Mexico they soon had large vessels constructed, in one of which Da Leon surveyed the coast of Texas in 1595-8. New England be grin with such small boats that no exact date can be set, but the fir6t American decked vessel was bu :.lt by Adrian Biock near the month of the Hudson in 1614. In 1629 Massa chusetts had five ships, but it is not cer tain which of them were built on fhafc coast. Her shipping increased so rapidly that in 1639 the fisheries were an impor tant source of her revenue, and in 1641 Hugh Peters built a vessel of SQ0 tons burden at Salem. Our Colonial Navy. In 1701, says The British Record, the American colonies had 2,700 men, with 121 vessels, aggregating 8.C00 tons, in the Newfoundland fisheries. In the wars with the French the American sailors bore an honorable part. It was in 1645 that the first American slaver sailed for the coast of Guinea,, and when she re turned to Boston her officers were pun ished and the captives were returned to their native country at the public ex pense. In 1731 Massachusetts had 38,000 tons of shipping and the other colonies smaller amounts each. When the pop ulation of the colonies was only 1,000,000, the entries and clearances at Boston in a single year were 930. The first naval exploit, if such it may be called, in the resistance to Great Britain was tne capture of the Gaspee. in 1772. As to that war and its naval heroes, especially Paul Jones, are not the details known to every Yankee schoolboy? Daring the entire war there were regularly commissioned in our own navy 36 vessels, of which 20 were captured by the British or burned to prevent capture. The first vessel to carry the American flag to China was the Empress, Captain Greene, which sailed from New York Feb. 22, 17S4. The troubles with Tripoli and Algiers began the next year, and the heroes of that war are well known. It .was in 1793 that the Constitution was first put in commission as an American vessel, and after a long and glorious service 6he is now laid up as the receiv ing ship at Portsmouth, N. H. The loss of the Kearsarge leaves the Hartford, Admiral Farragut's flagship, our only vessel afloat around which historic mem ories cluster. This year the committee has made liberal appropriation for her preservation and improvement and for refitting her with a modern battery, rather in obedience to public sentiment than for her value. Short KaTal Combats. In 1811 the naval appropriation was only 1,965,566. When war was declared, but a single ship, the Wasp, of 18 guns, was on foreign service, though maDy American vessels suitable but rot yet fitted for war were afloat. As the great est land ictory of that war, at New Or leans, was won three weeks after the treaty of peace was signed, so several sharp naval rqmbats took place during the six montb.3 after the peace, the last being that between the Peacock and the East India company's cruiser Nautilus in the strait cf Sanda, June 30. The Peacock fired but one broadside, killing and wounding 14 of the British, when the Nautilus surrendered, and the next day. the American captain Laving learn ed cf the peace, she was given up. There was not time for the navy to degenerate much before the second Baibary war be gan. After that th. navy was main tained in tolerable efficiency, and Amer ican merchant shipping increased with a rapidity never before known in history. We wer doiDg three-fourths of our ocean carrying when the transition from wooden to iron vessels began, since which our decline in that respect has been as rapid as our previous rise. It began in 1856 and amounted to 15 per cent before South Carolina seceded. Thence to the close of the war the de cline was 33 per cent of carrying, though not of tonnage, for the 6hips were only laid up temporarily. Thereafter we lost steadily to the close of 1892, since which there has been a slight improve ment. Senator Frye says: "In 1S10 -we had 1,000,000 tons in tae foreign trade and were carrying 93 per cent of our ex ports and imports. Today we have 838,000 tons and carry but 12 per cent of our exports and imports, paying Great Britain $175,000,000 per year to carry for us." On this basis he proposes a 10 per cent differential against goods imported in foreign bottoms, which the other fel lows, as usual, beg leave to amend by deducting 10 per cent from the regular duties for goods imported in American bottoms. That is "where we are at" for the present, but as to the navy proper there is much more to be said hereafter. J. IX. Bkatjus. SOCIAL AND PERSONAL.
