The Bellcrophou is the name of the new British Warship launched 111 Portsmouth on Saturday last and Which It Is believed will eclipse the great Dreadnought. The new fighting] machine will iu essentials closely n soluble the Drcmniuiighl hut will dif? fer rroin her prototype In several par? ticulars. The newer battleship Is ex? pected to have a displacement of about seven hundred tons greater than that of the first one to be equipped with a main battery of a single calibre nud| the Increase represents improvement? which scrutiny ol the Dreadnought has| suggest! d. The Bellcrophou will mount heavier guns for defense against tor? pedo boats than those which her pre? decessor carries. It in thought prob? able, too, that trifling alternations In [ the width of the armor licit and the height of one of the turrets may en liance her safety and efficiency. The Dreadnought embodies a number of| revolutionary Ideas la hultluahlp dt sign, and she was looked upon as a great deal of an experiment. Honei wnlloiupt to secure hotter results In I the Bellcrophou Is no confession of] weakness. England is apparently so well sails fled with the steam turbines wlthl which the Dreadnought was equipped! that In the absence of a definite stab meat to the contrary it may be a mm o d thai the llcllcrophon win 1? provided with similar machinery. Am | admirable chance would have been af? forded to employ reciprocaling en? gines on the Immediate successor of the Dreadnought. An instructive test was made several years ago under British auspices, when turbines wen installed on tin- Amethyst and the oth? er type of engli.n the Topa/o.| Those cruisers, however, had a ills placement of only :;,00u tons each, or only one sixth as great as that of the Dreadnought. In other countries, It may he remarked, less confidence Is at present foil in the superiority of the turbine than is manifested by Mr. Parson's > com patriots. The United States, indeed, bar; determined to try turbines on one or Us Ovo 20.000-tOII bntloshlps, but these are to be or American origin, ami on the other votf sei reciprocating engines will be used. This country, therefore .may be in a position, when these two ships nie completed, to demonstrate to the world for the first time which type of en? gine Is best suited to service on ves? sels of the greatest size. In the progress made with the con struct Ion or the Bollerophbn, the mar vcllous history of the Dreadnought has not l?cn paralleled hut n speed has been manifested which other naval powers may regard with envy. Be tween the lime Hie laying of the new battleship's keel ami launching bor only eight months have intervened, nnd It is expected Ihn) she will be flu lshcd In exactly two years from the commencement of the work. JAPAN PAVING WAY FOR BOR? ROWING MONEY. Berlin reports that Japan has been sounding German bankers as to im? possibility of raising a $75,000,000 loan among them. This is interesting iu view of the recent understanding 1 c tween Japan and France respecting loans. According to i'arls'.and London dispntchea, tho new treaty l';twccn Prance ami Japan was negotiated with n view mi Japan's part to burrowing money In Franco, it whs said that Japan <liit nut want the money Inmio cljhtuly?she hardly could have bad it! it she bad wanted it. owing in lliql cchulUon of tho market?but was inakrl Ing mire of easy nccoss to the ntmng| boxes in tlnie of uccd. Ever silier Japan became nmbltlou? to got on tli?' Asiatic cbntlnenl Kreuch stntosmcii have been worried about tiie possibility or trouble with Japan over tho French possessions In Asia. Probably Japan never for a moment | thought BUrlously of disturbing Franco In this respect but that didn't enter Into the French calculations. When, | tin reforo .treaty uogottalous were pro? posed. It was mi easy matter to brush I away the clouds as soon as It was | known tlint Japan would like to have nn Introduction to Kreuch Uwirdlngs. with France safely arranged wltti, Japan is now turning her attention to the Kaiser's domain, though with? out attempting to play an yorrltorlal game. In Germany It's a straight quest for financial help whon need' ed. Qormnny participated In tho last | Japanese International loan ami there Is no reason why she should tint par tielpato In tho future ones. It wouldI be solely a question of security nnd| of (lie condition of the money market.

The Philippine Islands are no gn al er burden to the United States than the West Indian islands are to Great Britain. Hoth an- a continual drain upon the home country without pres? ent advantages or promise of profit. The natural com no rcial and huh dial relations of the West Indian is? lands arc with the United Slate;. The natural commercial and industrial re? lations of the Philippine islands are with the British empire of India or with Japan. We should he delighted to turn over to either If wv could do It with dignity. Great Britain would ho delighted to turn the West Indian islands over to us If she could do it without hiss or prestige. The probability Is that all of the islands would benefit l-y the change. The West Indian islands languish un? der itiitlsh rule, because American markets are closed to lliom. The Philippine Islands languish under our rille because we will neither trade with thctii ourselves nor let others do it. Cuba and Porto lllco show Im? possibilities of prosperity for West Indian islands with even partial ac? cess to American markets. Tin- pros? perity or other Malay Islands under British rule shows what that might do for the Philippines. An article in a late number of the Furlltlghlly Review reelles these con? siderations and suggests the wisdom of an exchange. The exchange would certainly bo an uneven one, but It is hard to say on which side. Between two nuisances, is not the greater mil BniICO the least valuable'.' In that view ought we not to pay England some thing for making the exchange? The great difficulty Is of course one of sen 11 moil t. Lauds and people are not bartered from hand to hand today as they were when New York was traded for Guiana and Florida for Cuba.
