In I*ncle Sam's school of new war fishes,

Improvements on Present Holland.
Each of the five new war fishes to be Im
mediately built for us by Mr. Holland will
measure 63% feet from snout to tall and
11% feet in greatest width. In other words,
the improved type will be nine feet longer
and eleven and three-fourths feet wider in
beam than the present Holland. Sneaking
about beneath the blue cover of the deep,
each of these new vessels will be able to
swim eight knots an hour instead of seven,
the submerged speed of the Holland. The
new design represents a vessel large enough
to allow men to move about on the floor of
its cabin wlthout sloopir,g. This more gen
erous interior will admit a crew of seven
instead of five men. the complement of the
Holland. The impossibility of walking
erect In the cabin of the latter would make
a long run well nigh impossible. In the
new boat the crew will have plenty of room
f r hanging theIr hammocks and for storing
supplies sufficient f(r a long run of several
'lays. The surface radius of action, 1,(tt
miles in the present vessel, will be Inereas-d
to L.;_MA miles. A n-w type of alternating
gasoline engine for surface propulsion will
give 1.q horse power instead of the Hol
land's fifty. For submerged runs will be
employed a new improvement in waer
proof motors driven by sixty st:,rage bat
tery cells beneath the cabin floor. This
will have seventy electric horse power, as
against the Holland's fifty. Iy means of a
new device, whenever one of the crew
moves even a fraction of an inch sufficient
water to compensate for the disturbance of
the vessel's trim will be admitted to or ex
pelled from the roper cmpartment.
Another important Improvement will he an
automattie arrangement whereby each of
the new vesse's wIll operate at will in
fresh water, salt water or a mIxture of
b,oth, and by which it may itass freely from
one such medium to the other. As any
bather knows, it Is much more difficult to
sink In salt than in fresh water. While go
Ing out of a rIver into the sea the diving
abilitIes of a subtmarine boat are constant
ly varying. This variation has caused some
trouble on the origInal Holland boat. An
other Improvement in water ballast, by
whIch 1.44m pounds of water can be taken
in or emItted within a few seconds. will en
able the new type of vessel to suddenly bob
up and down again, only so far as to ex
pose one-half of its turret. The present
Holland bodtt requires about ten seconds to
reflil Its tank before dodging back under
water after thus showing itself. But even
in that time the chances of assault are
slight. Before the projectile from a war
ship two miles away can leave its muzzle
and arrive at one of the new submarine
boats the latter will have disappeared
and gone no one knows whither. Even at a
distance of a few hundred yards. the sud
den bobbIng up and down of its utmost top

quired to make ready and aim a gun on
Were Uagatelle in Cost.
The five new submarine boats are to cost
not more than $170,000 'apiece. At this rate
Uncle Sam can build a flotilla of forty such
vessels for the total price of one finished
sea-goiag battle ship of the first class. To
take a cold-blooded, warlike view, the risk
would be proportionately small, when there
might be a reasonable chance that a sub
marine boat, with seven men on board,
could destroy forty times its worth in prop
erty and sink severasl hundreds of active
foemen. Built only as an experiment, any
one of these little devils of the- deep would
not be an expensive luxury. But Admiral
Hichborn, chief of the navy's bureau of
construction and repair, regards the fin
ished Holland boat as in the practical rath
er than the experimental stage. He is of
the opinIon that we should immediately
avail ourselves of at least twenty of the
improved vessels; but Congress cut the
number down to five.
Six months will be required for the build
ing of each of the five boats, All of them
will not be begun at the same time. They
will be completed probably a month or six
weeks apart, that any defects in one may
be remedied in those of later construction,
At this rate the whole five cani be corn

successful on final trial. their construction
will probably be continued at the rate of
five or six a year, and thus all improve
ments suggested by the continuous series
of experiments will be gradually embodied
in the little vessels as fast as they are
launched. Admiral Hichborn is in favor of
giving us a first-class submarine navy, su
perior even to that of France. "I do not
think they have any comparison with the
Holland in any other navy." is his tribute
to the boat already purchased by Uncle
Sam. Our authorities have taken due pre
caution against adopting any submarine
boats inferior to the French craft. Our na
val attache at Paris has cautiously follow
ed the progress of the French experiments
and has submitted to the Navy Depart
ment confidential reports perused by our

and guards will be delegated by the Navy
Department to prevent Intruders from tak

aboard of them.
New Problems in Store.
With the transition of our submarine boat
construction from the experimental to the
practical stage arise distinctly new prob
lems as to the definite functions of these ves
sels in future warfare, their proper distri
bution among our seaports, their possibil
ities of operation far out at sea and the
uniform tactics by which they can be ma
neuvered. It is believed that they will
serve every function of the ordinary sur
face torpedo boat, besides having the addi
tional abillry to disappear under water and
escape when discovered by a threatened
fou. Admiral Hichborn does not regard the
"Holland" boat to be so delicate as the
torpedo boat proper. "I haven't much faith
in the torpedo boat operating with a fleet
at sea.". said he. "The fictitious speed dis
appears at once when the sea is on." Still,
it is not believed by the admiral that the
death knell of the surface torpedo boat has
been sounded now that the submarine craft
has proven its efficiency. lie is of the opin
ion that our navy will need both species of
these ocean hornets. The torpedo boat
proper. with her high speed, can attract
the attention of the enemy and worry him.
while the submarine boat, hiding beneath
the waves. carries out the actual program
of slaughter. In active coast defense ope
rations the latter will probably have the
task of holding the line just outside the
range at which hostile vessels might begin
to bombard our seaports. It would proba
bly be depended upon to protect harbors
against blockades. It would have the ad
ditional task of holding channels and rivers
like the Potomac against a fleet trying to
enter for the bombardment of an inland
city like Washington. It might be em
ployed in the delicate operation of carrying
communications through-or, rather, under
-hostile lines. Were Uncle Sam to become
an enemy of Great Britain, for instance,
one of these steel battle fishes might swim
up the Atlantic coast to Halifax, and, if
needs be, clear away mine fields or other
obstructions placed in the way of a possi
ble Invasion by our fleet.
To Be Carried on Transports.
Tile problem as to how our new subma
rine boats might be carried long distances
for employment against hostile fleets is
another which is just now looming up.
With their 1,500) miles' radius of action, the
little daredevils of the deep will not be al
lowed to stray far out to sea without sub
stantial chaperonage. Weighing more than
a hundred tons apiece. thty would be awk
v:ard and cumbersome freight for battle
Admiral Dewey is of the opinion that
large steamships can be eqinpped with der
rieks and made capable of histing a half
dozen submarine boats on board of each.
These large vessels might carry them from
point to point. wherever needed, and launch
them into the sea with case. They might
travel in the non-fighting category with
colliers, hospital and ammunition ships, ac
c(mpanying large fleets. One of Russia's
armored cruisers is equipped with a com
partment from which she can launch a tor
pedo0 boat with the ease at which one of
thuse little vessels might slip off the stocks
of a shore shipyard. Admiral Dewey is
skeptical as to the practicability of extend
ing the functions of submarine bo'its to
fleet formatIons on the high seas. They
should, in his opinion, be confined to har
bor and coast defense, but even during
these uses they can be carried in special
transport vessels from point to point along
a threatened coastline.

Oicital of a Cuban Court Approaches

Snor Vaccarisse, a Cuban agent for a
well-known grade of flour, recently had a
atter in litigation. The clerk of the court
alled upon him and said that for 4 cen
enes, about W20 a decision would be render
ed in his favor. He refused and a decision
was rendered against him. He laid the mat
er before Gen. Wood, who advised him to
ppeal, and suggested that if he were ap
roached again he should mark the money
nd endeavor to have a detective present to
verhear the negotiations. Yesterday the
secretary of the judge of the cathedral
ourt called upon Vaccarisse and told him
hat for 10 centenes the appeal decision
ould be given in his favor. An appoint

when the secretary arrived, accompanied
