j'w, .- iolvcd lt. nnd. when a OJUOTy came

Mgwer wenl back that it was not only poaalMe,
bal 'ha: it nnd been done, and not two, but
four had been retubed, and lf a llttle more tlme
w,re allowed the other two would be treated ln
*h? aame wny, while. so far as her steam-gener
ttlng apparatufl was conceraad. the shiP nrould
be as g . d as new. As a result. she came to thls
Ptatl n wltb her boUera ln good order.
Her enplnes. however. are not ln so good
gaape, nnd need a thorough overhaullng, and
Ibe chlef englneer nnturnlly holda that. in view
o' the record made whlle the Bhlp was afb.at,
th- department can well afford to let hlm have
the tlme now to make on* part of her maehln
ery as good as the other is. AddUtonal credlt

THR NOVF.I. KATAHDIN KEARLT READY.
T*.or? bas been B fore* of about twenty-flve
rr.en at work on the Katahdin. under the dlrec
tlon of her bullders. fCT the last week. and tne
govel craft wlll be rendy to go into commlaalon
by the geeoBd week In Februaty. The men are
making no changes on the veaael save in minnr
points. and when she Is flylng her flag the
naval arm of the Natlon will have a most
fonnldable weapon of offenre and defence.
She has been taken from hor moorings r.t the
Cob Dock wall to the stone pler. just below the
iock where the Puritan is belng ?ompleted, aml
ls an Object of much Interest to the visltors at
the yard. The Katahdin is of the whaleback
tyj.e an,! ls UA feet 9 inehes long. 43 feet 5
?achea extrema breadth. and 15 feet rn^an drnft.
latended to ram an enemy's veaael. and ln that
?ay do her most effectlve work. her whol* c f
fenslve power is centred ln her ram head of
ca?t steel.
The vessel ls practlcally an automatlc niua
tlc projectile of 2.1S3 t'.ns. drlven by a double
art of trlple expanslon englnea and twln screws.
and aMe to deliver a b|oW of 1*081 foot t< ns.
Th? ram is so brmced that the whol,- structure
of the vessel sustalns tbe sbock of impact. nnd
the addltlonal destructlve power of what
amounts to an ennrmous knlfe blade ls ob
talned by the peculiar form of her bull. the
edge of her protectlve deek formlng a charp
junctlon with hor under-water body. When
abe ls readv for actlon thls edge Is a foot brlow
the surface of the water. nnd, as lt Btarts well
forward. it can b* aeen that Its penetratlng and
cuttlng power are promlnent faetors 1? the ef
ficlency of the ahlp as a destroyer. Thls de
lk-ctlve deck serves as a shield from the shot
of an enemy, and ranges from W to 6 lnclu-s
in thlokness, so that wh* n siie Is partlally sub
inerg-d. her smoke plpe, runnlng tower and ven
