Progress in warship building Is strikingly Illus
trated in the history of the four Connectlcuts that
have been added to the United States Navy. The
step from the little schooner rigged craft that
participated in the first fleet action In which the
United States Navy ever engaged, in 1774. to the
"magnificent" sloop of war, built In IT9B. to
"chßstlse French insolence" on the high seas was a
long one. Then, after a period of sixty years, the
third Connecticut appeared on the navy list, that
"mighty steamer" which served creditably in the
Civil War. her 1.700 tons of displacement causing
her 432-ton predecessor of tha French war to look
like a pygmy. Following the example of her sis
ters, tha great 16,000-ton battleship soon to be
launched from tha Brooklyn navy yard shows an
other gigantic stride In naval development, and
when cnn:pl<°ted will be one of the most formidable
fighting machines the world has ever seen.
This fourth Connecticut will combine all tha
means for defence and offence that the concentrat
ed experience of a century of naval science has
found desirable for a ship of her class. Sha is one
of tha two battleships— the other one being the re
cently launched Louisiana— authorised by Act of
Conjrress approved July 1. 1902. which provided
that one of these Fhips should be built In a navy
yard. The Connecticut was selected for govern
ment construction, while the contract for the build
ing of the Louisiana was awarded to a private
firm. From the start keen rivalry has been shown
at the competing shipyards as to which vessel
would be completed first. 80 far. the private firm
has the lead by about a month, for the Louisiana
was launched some days ago, but the race has not
been won yet. Delays, caused by matters over
which the navy yard officials had no control, have
caused tardiness In the- launching of tha Connecti
cut, but her builders have until a year from next
March to complete their work, and they are hope
ful yet cf distancing their rivals In the private
shipyard at Newport News. Vs. Taken as a whole,
the work on the Connecticut Is slightly in advance
of that on the Louisiana.
In the case of both ships, however, record break-
Ing speed in naval construction has been made.
After the building of the ill fated Maine, no «hlp
of great size had been attempted In the Brooklyn
navy yard until work was begun on the Connecti
cut; so that the officials found themselves destitute
of many of the first necessities for their glgantlo
undertaking. It required an appropriation of
$175,000 to get the yard in condition for starting the
work, a disadvantage with which the rival private
shipyard did not have to contend. The work of
driving piles to support the frame bearing the
enormous weight of the giant ship took many days.
Then an electric cantilever crane had to be set up.
and other preliminary work dona, so that it was
not until March 10. 1903, that the keel was laid for
the huge warship.
By employing the system of "piece work." never
before attempted In the navy yard, such rapid
progress was made that in th<« extraordinarily
short time of nineteen months from the laying of
rhe keel the ship will be ready for launching. Tha
first material for the ship was ordered October 1.
1903, and the first material was received December
11. IMB. The stem was erected July 28, 1903. und
the first armor was put on board on April 24, 1904.
The first boiler was Installed in the ship July 7, 190 i.
The armor, dynamos, motors and specific fittings,
being more advantageously supplied by private
firms, are made outside of the yard, but, with tha
exception of these and the guns and their mounts
<which. in all cases, are mads at the naval gun
factory in Washington), all the work, of building
and fitting the Connecticut has been done in the
navy yard. That It has been done so successfully
and rapidly is a matter for congratulation to thos»
concerned in the work, for It was freely predicted
at the start that such a large battleship could not
be advantageously built in a government yard. Tha
cost of the Fhlp. exclusive of armament and armor.
Is limited to *».21^.000. The propelling engines ana
all other accessories and fittings (except those
above mentioned), which in modern battleships are
almost Innumerable, are made in the yard factories.
Owlr.g to changes In connection with tha Installa
tion of submerged torpedo tubes in a ship for
which they were not originally intended, and the
delay in receiving armor, it la probable that the
Connecticut will not be completed by March 16,
1906, the date set by the government, although her
l;.;!Mers are hopeful that they will not overrun tnat
limit more than a few aays.
The Connecticut is one of the five 16,000-ton bat
tleships of the new navy, her sisters being the
Louisiana, the Vermont, the KanSfts and the Min
nesota. These great warships compare most
favorably with the largest and latest designed ves
sels of the same class in any foreign navy. A re
cent tabular comparison places tha Connecticut
class as superior to any warship now completed or
under construction.
The general dimensions and characteristics of the
Connecticut are as follows: ■ Length, «50 feot; ex
treme bear*. 76 feet 10 Inches: mean draught, 24
feet 6 Inches: displacement, 16.000 tons; twin screws;
vertical triple expansion engines; speed, 18 knots:
Stlieated horsepower. 16,500; coal capacity, 2.200
tons; complement. 42 officers, 761 men; protective
deck. 2«/ i Inches thick on the slope and IVi Inches
:hlsk on tha flat.
Her armament consists of four 12-i:vch guns,
eight 8-lnch guns, twelve 7-lnch gune, twenty 3
inch rapid fire guns, twelve 3-poundcrs, eight I
pouiidere, two 3-inch field guns, eight machine guns
arvl four submerged torpedo tubes. Her armor
belt la 11 Inches thick at the top and 9 Inches
at tha bottom. Tho thickness of armor on tbe
largest turrets is It Inches, and for the smaller
turrets 8 Inches. Tha barbette armor is 10 Inches
for t:-,e 12-inch guns and 6 Inches for the 6-lnch
Tha predecessors of tha new Connecticut played
en important part in the history of the United
States Navy. The first warship bearing this name
was engaged in the naval battle of Lake Cham
plain, October 11-13. 1776. The American fleet, con
sisting of fifteen vessels, mounting 8S cannon and
manned by 700 men, was commanded by Major
General Benedict Arnold. Tha English fleet, of
25 vessels, mounting 81 guns and manned by 1,000
man, was under the command of Captain Prlngle,
of the royal navy. The English had started from
Canada with a !ar»e army to begin the Invasion of
New-York, and one of the first essentials to the
success of their plan was the control of Laka
Champlaln and its contiguous waterways.
The opposing fleets met in battle near Plattsburg.
and after a hard all day fight the enemy at dark
drew Just out of gunshot, intending to renew tha
struggle on tha following morning. Realising that
he was contending against hopeiess odds, Arnold
placed a screened light at the stern of each cf his
venex-is, and about midnight stole through the Brit
ish lines la s.r.gU flia and proceeded down tha lake.
The English did not discover the- escape until day
light, when they Rave chase. It was not until noon
of the following day. when near Split Rock, that
the opposing mull were again within fishting dis
tance; and then be»an a running fight, in which th<j
Amer'can vessels were destroyed or dispersed. Al
though defeated in this fleet action, the Americana
Inflicted euch serious loss on the EnKli.«h and so
delayed their progress that the Invasion was aban
doned. Like the battle of Bunker Hill, the defeat
was In reality a victory, for Its main object, tho
repelling of the Invader?, was accomplished
In the naval war against Prance, lTi'S-ISOI. a navy
of some twenty-five warships was created to pro
tect American merchantmen In the West Indies.
Among these war craft v.-as the twenty-gun sloop
of war Connecticut, built nt Mlddletown, I'unn., at
a cost of $57 2*io. Under the command of Captain
M—— Tryon aha cruised two years In the West
Indies, convoying merchantmen and chasing Trench
privateer*. On the cessation of hostilities she was
sold for $19,300.
One of the first problems confronting the govern
ment at Washington on tha outbreak of the Civil
War was that of supplying warships at distant
points on the blockade of Southern ports with fresh
provisions and of maintaining communication wit^
them so that the sick and wounded mm. as well as
tho malls, could be transported with reaEonable fa
about 1.700 tons each wen purchased, and named
clllty. For this service two sidt- wheel steamers of
the Rhode Island and the Connecticut, the latter
being bought July 18, ISSI, under the name Missis
sippi, for J200.000. Throughout the Civil War these
supply steamers kept open communications between
Northern ports and the warships on the lonely
blockade, going as far as New-Orleans or Galveston
each trip, as the exigencies of the st-rvlca required.
They were heavily armed, and frequently were
called upon to chase blockade runners and Confed
erate cruisers, besides occasionally taking a hand
In a bombardment. At the close of the war the
Connecticut was sold for 1131,000.

rapher and said:
"I'll fix you all right. Just wait till I Jump
Into the kitchen."
The Senator hurried to the pantry. *nd, as
the cook was away, he hunted through Its
shelves and drawers himself. At last he dug
up a package of soda, but not until he had
covered his black cheviot frock coat with a
mixture of flour, cornmeal and dust. He then
carefully powdered the burn with soda, and,
taldos out a silk handkerchief from his potfket,
he bound up the Injured hand with the care
and a'tentlon of a nurse. The handkerchief was
an expensive one. but when the photographer
said he would return it as soon as he got home
the Senator said:
"No. DO, Keep it to offset the other souve
nir of your visit."
One day he was observed coming out of the
City Clur of Olean, of which he Is a member. H«
was walking briskly. He caught sight of some
thlng on the sidewalk, stopped to look at It. and
thea returned and klokod a banana peel into
the gutter. "Some one might slip on that and
h* hurt." he observed to a bystander as he
hastened away.
At the time of the coal strike he was one of
those who had filled his bins In the spring. Two
old maids in Rushford. his birthplace, were
without coal. As winter approached they be
came alarmed and worried. Mr. Hlggins heard
of their distress nnd. knowing that coal shipped
l, y freight was liable to be stolen before It
reached its destination, he tied up in hags four
tons taken from his own bins and shipped it to
the troubled old maids by express.
An old man in one of the poorhouses of the
county receives from him from time to time a
five-dollar bill for tobacco. Lieutenant Oov
ernor Hlggins has the reputation of being cov
ertly generous. He objects to having his bene
factions known. For a number of years he has
been In the habit of supplying from hla stores a
dinner for every needy family In Olean. The
giver of these dinners was never known until
some one In the secret told of their source. He
was much offended at the leakage. It Is gen
erally understood, although one has difficulty in
getting a definite confirmation of the fact, that
he was the giver of a sum of money for laying
out the park in Olean. Olean is to celebrate its
centennial on October 6 and 7, and a monu
ment was to be unveiled In the" park at that
time. There was no money available in the pub
lic treasury, however, for the purpose of laying
out tho surroundings.
When the Spanish-American "War broke out
he was at the head of a committee organized to
raise funds to make up to the members of the
Olean Company of the National Guard the de
ficiency between the money they earned at their
regular employment and their pay as soldier*.
This committee raised $40,000. and the whole
company was enabled to go to the front with
the assurance that their families would be taken
care of.
Mr. Hlggins has long enjoyed the reputation
of being the best dressed man at the capital.
Though of plain design and of a tint inclined
to be sombre, nevertheless the Senator's clothes
are of the finest texture and faultlessly fash
It was for this reason that when he first went
to Albany in 1803 as a Senator he met with
many odd experiences at the hands of certain
strangers. On the first day of his career as a
Senator, for Instance, Mr. Illgglns happened to
be talking with two New-York City members,
prominent in Tammany Hall and leaders of
their own districts, when one of them re
marked: *.
"Say, but it makes trie sore to associate with
so many whiskers. Now that Governor Flower
Continued from Qrit pax*-
has turned the shop over to Morton this "Joint'

"You're on." said the other, wno represented
an East Side district, and the design of whose
waistcoat was on the same order as the bunting
hung over his own bar. "These hop pi kers are
all out of the same barrel. They all look as If
they sleep in their clothes."
Mr. Hlggins perceived that the two men had
not recognized him as a fellow member, and
was Just going to remonstrate, when the East
Sider took him by the elbow and whispered:
"Bay. what corporation do you represent?"
"Corporation V exclaimed Mr. Higgins. "What
do you mean? It's the Lth Senate District that
I represent. My home is In Olean."
The two men appeared dazed, and as Mr. HUT- i
gins left them he could only bear them matter*
ing over and over the word "Olean."
In his public speeches the Republican candi
date for Governor uses plain, simple language,
ami never gives a sentence a humorous turn un
less forced to do so. "When challenged In de
bate, however, by some facetious remark, he caa
hurl t>ack the same kind ot weapon, and moat
times with a sure aim. Mr. Hlggins was one»
making a speech upholding Governor Odell'S
economic policy, when Senator Grady, who has
cutne to be regarded as the chief comedian of
the upper house, began to Interrupt him. For
a time the Senator from the Lth District
answered the Tammany member seriously.
Then his persecutor cracked a Joke which mad*
the gallery roar, and added:
"The Senator from the Lth District, as
chairman of the Finance Committee, has proved
himself a good business man, but IV is all for
political effect."
"I sincerely thank the Senator from the
XlVth," was the reply, "and only hop* that,
were he chairman of finance, instead of myself,
I could speak as highly of him."
At another time Senator Krum, after th» Sen
ate had adjourned, began to poke a little fun
at the Cattaraiißus County member (or having
the reputation of being rich.
"Now. as a matter of fact." said the ichoharto
statesman, "this question of money is only a
gamble. One man may happen to strike It rich,
while another, who knows a blamed sight more,
is likely to go right past a fortune, and never
see it."
"Yes," said Senator Higglns, **1 suppose it Is

Just before the session of the Senate one morn- !

attention of Senator Elsberg, and elicited from
him this remark:
"Are you not afraid of the draughts up there?"
"No, not a bit afraid; but. Senator, I should
think you would be afraid of them,"
"Why. how's that?" asked the New-Yorker,
somewhat surprised.
"Well, you see. you alt In the midst of the

▲ story Is told In Olean of how Theodore
Roosevelt, while Governor, and Senator Hlg
gins, were kidnapped by a half-drunken hack
driver. Governor Roosevelt was to spealc at
a county fair near Glean. He had accepted the
Invitation of Senator Hlggins to spend the pre
vious night at his home. The visit of Governor
Roosevelt was to be the occasion of a demon
stration In Olean. When Senator Hlgglns and
Governor Roosevelt descended from the train,
the former looked about for the carriage which
he had ordered from a local livery stable to meet
his gue.it and himself. A back driver quickly
drew hla vehicle up into the crowd beside the
platform and called out: "Here you are, ' Go
vernor! Get right in here!"
The carriage was so thickly surrounded by
the crowd that its character vould. not be dis
tinguished, and, thinking it was the vehicle
ordered by him. Senator Hlggins ushered the
Chief Executive of the Empire State into it, and
followed himself. Instantly the hackman
whipped up his horses and dashed up the street
without waiting for the reception committee.
Then it was discovered that the carriage was a
ramshackle affair. The rattling of the spokes
could be distinctly heard as the carriage rolled
up the streets. The driver paid no further at
tention to his passengers until he reached the
heart of the town, when he turned up to one
of the hotels.
"This In not my house," exclaimed 9enator
Higgins to the half Intoxicated driver. Rattling
across the street to the opposite corner, the car
riage was stopped in front of a much inferior
"I wish you to go to my house," said Gov
ernor Roosevelt* host In a firm tone, as the
driver turned around to see If his fare* were
going to get out.
This time the Jehu on the seat seemed to
grasp what was wanted, and swinging around
the park he drew up in front of Senator Hlg
glna's home, but tar in advance of the reception
committee, which had been left at the station
wondering what had happened.
