A. Orlscom of Philadelphia. Admiral " Mcitlo Is not n crso to tho banauet table. cither. 'I ho dinner wns marked by ono noticeable change from the customs of recont seasons. In stead of tho procllilty for street songs there una manifest the spirit that has animated the nation for tho pnsl thtee months, an exuberant patriot ism that found expression In tho national songs. "Tho Star-Spungled 1'anncr." "Hall Columbia," "America." Tho diners nroso and sane them Tvhencicr tho orchestra played them. Tho peokers referred often to the national spirit nnd Influcnco that tended to the dory of tho United States, and It was those sentiments for which they recoiled cheers each time. Every Intimation of posslblo future uso of tho navy Vfns received with emphatic demonstrations of approval. Secretory Herbert, in recltlnc somo of the benefits w hlch a navy had conferred upon Christian nations, referred to Its share. In an earlier century. In subduing "tho Turk, who threatened at that time all the peoples of south ern Europe u Ith the fnto that hangs ovor tho unhappy Armenians to-dny." Ho was Inter rupted with vigorous applnuso. lloro Is a part of Mr. Herbert's speech: SfthLCH OF SkCllETARY HEItnEn?. "Thenaty. to my mind, represents my coun try. It stands not for a part, but for the whole; not fur the Interests of any one section, but for the welfare, the honor, and the clory of all the people of our land. It la peculiarly appropriate that tho Naval Architects ai.d Marino En gineers of the United Slates and their Clients should unite this evening in it toast to our navy. The American shipbuilder is entitled to a. large share In whatever glory that nnyhm achieved In the post, nnd I think I am in a po sition nlt-o to saj tie Is performing Ids full duly to It now. and that ho may bo trusted In the future. We aro shipbuilders and sailors by Inheritance, and nn nation has ever more thoroughly under stood the value of first-class naval ships and first-class suns than we. It tins been our tradi tional policy to hat o our ships and cuns. If pos- tlble, to be just a little bettor than those nt tho J same class belonging to uur possible enemies. It is believed that to-day our gunboats, our cruisers, our harbor defence ships, our battle ships, and our torpedo boats just v contracted tor, our great guns and small guns, our torpedoes, our powder nnd high rxploslits, are euual to uny in the world. Manufacturing estnbllehmints havo multi plied, skill nud experience hate been acquired, t and prices have tnllen until our artisans aro now making armor and ship9 for foreign coun tries. Wo are nuw prepared at all points to build fjhlps that are at least equal to uny In the world. Preparations nre complete for tho con tinuation o(, and I hope, we shall continue, the programme, of increasing our navy. "The uay is especially proud of Its construc tors. Its team engineers, and Its ordnance ofH cers, and tlio whole country owes tbcia a debt of grutlludr for the work the) have done In the reconstruction of that navy. Indeed. Mr. Presi dent, take the personnel of our natyall together, linn oftlcrr, Mart officers, and enlisted men, nnd they arc worth) of our ships nnd our guns, and worthy, too.nf the heritage of glory left by Paul Jone and Decatur nnd Itainbrldge anil McDon- . otigh and Perry and Hall, nnd the other gallant 1 tars w ho made famous tbe name of tno Arucrl- can sailor In the early history of our country.' In culture. In capacity. In character, the officers of to-day ae not surpassed by any body of men In the world. They represent every Con-ares-tonal district In tbe Union. Winnowed as tneyttre br et ere tests applied upon admission to tho Naval Ac.dimy at etery examination there, nnd afterward upon rising etery grade In , the -ertlce, the countrj has etery assurance of I the moral and Intellectual fitness of tneseoru- . ccrf.

Mr. Du Hosque wns talking of matters of In terest to a home audience when ho detailed aomo nf the experiments made In speed trlnls of ferryboats, and lonn engineers Interested In local ferries were listening tn him. Ho dis closed the fact that tho new Pennsylvania ferry lo Twenty-third street Hill be operated with boats having a speed of Hftron stututo miles. TA determine the power required to propel such rt tt.no of ferryboat at this speed, prturisslto sliced trials were made w Ith the scrcw-prnpellctl fern boat Cincinnati. A instance nf ft.lIOO feet was laid off nn tho New York shoroof tho North Ith or, extending from Nlnot) -fourth street lo 110th street, nnd rnngo Poles were erected at tho terminals, perpendicular to tho direction of the course. Rune wero mado on this courso. with and against the title, nt speeds tar) lug from six tn thirteen statuto miles per hour; uno series with tho twpscrows hi operation, one nt the bow and nnc at tho storn; ono series with the now scrow.rcmoved nnd stern screw "push ing," and one series with the stern screw re moved nnd tho bowscrow "pulling." "The usual speed of this boat In ferry ser vice," Mr. D.i Ilosqiio said, "Is eleten miles nn hour, and at this speed II requires SO per cent, more power to propel tho boat wllh tho twn scrows than with ono screw pushing, and tin percent, moro power to propel the bast with the screw at tno bow than with tho screw at tho stern " Could the snmo power that Is ured bv tho tw.n screws be put Into the sciewnt the' stern, ho snld, there could he attained nn Incren-e nf sbectl to 11.0T miles per hour, whit h made It clear that tho bow screw wan inefficient. " When under way," ho said, "It thrusts n column of water against the bow or the boat atavtloilty equal to the slip ratio of tho screw, and con siderable power Is absorbed through friction of tho blade surface;but a ferryboat's bow be comes Its stern at each succeeding trip, nnd It Is therefore Impossible to dispense with tho forward screw. Tho screw at tho bow. hownver. Is useful, for ono of tho must desirable features In n ferryboat Is Iho ability tn start and stop prmnptlt. Of tho seven minutes required to go from landing tn lnndlng. two minutes nro consumed In getting under wny and stopping. Superiority In this respect Is ono of the rensons w hv n scrow beat Is preferable to a slde-whreler. The screw-pro-pelltd boat will eventually supplant tho sldi n heeled boat for ferry service where certainty In ope-atlon Is necessary nnd where the comfort of the passengers Is considered. The boats nr morequlcklv manoeuvred nt the landings, nnd In tho winter they proceed through the lea with out interruption. ' IOWA MAKES 1037 K.VHTS. The Sett-Golnsr Hat tie Shlp'a Record oa "Danfflclnl Trial, PiiiLADixrniA, Nov. 13. Tho sea-going battle ship Iowa returned here this evening from her builder's trial trip oft thoDelannrn Capes. On a-two hours' burst of speed this morning the ship averaged 10.27 knots at 11U retolutlons ot the screws. This Is .ST moro than tbe contract speed ot the vessel calls fur, and that tho Iowa Is capable of better time than this was shown when she was spurted occa sionally around the 17-knot notch. The Iowa left here on Tuesday at noon. On Wednesday morning, after adjusting the ship's compasses, the Iowa ran off shore twenty miles, and wns steamed four times over the ten-knot course between tho two lightships on Five Fathom Bank Shoal, The engines had a good limbering up, and nt f revolutions 14'j knots were made. On Wednesday night the lownanchoretl within the Capes and went out ngali Thursday morning. She was run straight oil shore for sixty miles, ami 11(1 retolutlons nf the screws were maintained. The result or tho run Thursday was satlsfactor) to the engineer ing department, and she returned tn her an chorage Inside tho Capes again on Thursday night. This morning Mr. Cramp determined to test tho ship's speeding nbllttles n little Under forced draught she was drlt en for twenty miles off shore, anil then was headtd landward again. A strong gale from the northwest met tho ship as sbo headed shoreward, but she met the rising waves sttffiy. Iftr record was 1U.V7 knots nt 119 revolutions. It Is estimated thnt the in tinea developed about 11.U0O hore power, which Is 1.D00 more than wasdet eloped by the engines or the Indiana on that ship's official trial. No requirement of hnrso power Is exacted in the ship's contract. For eter) quarter knot mado above Id knots her builders will recelte a pre mium of SoO.OOO. It is expected that the ship will be ready lo go on her official trial trip about tho middle of Februnr). and by that time she will be so nrarlv completed thut sho can go into commission in March. TIl&EltXCSSOX ADDED TO HIE XA YT. Ill Cuek lias Followed the Teasel Ever rslnce Her Completlos. WAsmnOTO.v, Nov. 13. The torpedo boat Ericsson, which has had a checkered career since her launching surpassing that of the Texas, has at last been formally nddetl to tho navy, and the final payment. Including sums re served pending her acceptance by the Clot em inent, has been made to her builders, tho Iowa Iron Works of Dubuque. Ill luck has attended the little vessel ever slnro she started don n tho Mississippi. Her contract demanded the main tenance of twentj-fnur knots for two hours, but after rt prated break. don ns n preliminary runs It has been Impossible. arter more than n )e.trof continued effort, lo glio her nn olllrlal trial, so she enters the naty devoid of a speed record. Last Hummer she nun fitted uputthe llrnokljn Navy Yard for a renewal of the attempts to ful fil her contract, but when the cuj-snn fell Into the dry dock at thnt jnrtl, tho Ericsson was caught In the tortex or the resulting maelstrom, and she wns hanged against the sinne walls. As the United Mates wits responsible for this mls hnp.and the repairs would runnter liitnanollier jear, the Dubuque people demurred ncalust further expensite delay, and the chiefs of con struction nnd engineering dtcldtil under tlio stress of circumstances that the vessel had bet ter be accepted. This has bren done, ami tho unlucky Texas will hato company In tribulation. XKWS OF inv JUOXOCACY. The Old Cruiser Mnvril Out or Her Hud lied In the Pel no Itlver. WASiiiMvror;.

There seems to be llttlo doubt now that Charles II. McLaughlin, who, with 10-ycnr-old Daisy Hampton, wns arrested In Hobokon on Thursday night by Detectives Weller and Manlon, Is a member of the gang of check, draft, and noto swlndlora which had for one of Its leaders William K. Valentine, now undor nrrest In Brooklyn for giving May Wlntago worthless checks to cash. Cnpt, O'Rrlen tars that McLaughlin nnd tho Hampton girl worked alone, but tho Rrooklyn authorities think differ ently. Tho things found In the room occupied by McLaughlin and thu girl nt 300 Hudson street, Hobokcn, apparently show that tho pair wioro really hand and glove with Valentine, for they liato ured drafts and checks on the banlcof UehrcnsibCo. nt(H Stone street, whloh was a bank used by Valentino and tils pals. From tho first, too. District Attorney Llackua of Rrooklyn has said that the man above all others whom ho wanted tn catch was one Charles II. McLaughlin, whom he considered tho brnlns of tho Valentino gang. It now dovelnps that ho had one chance at tbe man nnd let It slip. Set cr.ll da s after Vnlonllne'a nrrest Mc Laughlin called at tho Ita)tnond street Jail to see him. Ho navo his real nnrae. and after a brief Intert low with the prisoner wont away again. Now tho Now York police have got McLaughlin, nnd they mean to hold on to him. They procured tho Indictment by the Urnnd Jury yesterday of McLaughlin and hit woman companion for swindling Ra)mond W. Kenny, a furrier nt !M KastTwentv-thlrd street, out of $370 w trth of goods by means of n-worlh-lcss draft on the htono street bank. Asslstnnt District Attnrncy Rattle said that tho cotiplo would bo extradited as soon as the tiocesnry papers could bo procured. Mr. Bat tle also said that McLaughlin had admitted that ho was connected with the Valentine gang of swindlers, and thnt they had Intended to uso the Stiiudnid Coal and Oil Company as n name to trat el under to help thorn In their swindling ope rations. Tho Ilnbokon police caught McLaughlin and Miss Hampton. They hud a description of Mc Laughlin from the Druokl) u police and descrip tions of both tho man and girl from tho New lork police, lor somo unknown reason, the Hoboken authorities chota to cho tho New York police first chnnco nt McLaughlin, for, nfmr locating him. they sent wonl to Police headquarters tn this city, nud Detectltes Weller ami Manlon went user and arrestctl the pair. .McLaughlin nnd tho girl were arraigned in Recorder Mt'Donough's court In Hoboken. )es ter.liD.tird at the request of the dotectlves of this cltv, wero held to await extradition papers. Neither Mould sny n word when questioned, and the Recorder told them that tho) would be wtso to maintain silence until they tteru arraigned In Next ork. or hud n chance tn consult counsel. The II imptnn girl. Hho Is ver) prett). went bit teily all Itucugh the proceedings. Once Mf Lnuchlln attempted to say something on behalf of the girl, but nftei tho tourt's advice he tie-sl-tctl. Her predicament Is somewhat similar to Unit of the Uituue girl, although in lew of the nnv Furrier Keuii) wns swindled by the pair, theru seems tn bo little doubt that sho knew eMtctlv what Hho whs doing. After theca-esof the two had been disposed of.
