June 25. iSrcut Hrltain Is constructing a new type of battleship that will be able to send the huge Dreudnauglit to the bottom as easily as the lireudnaught can sink the Russo-Japanese type of Ironclads. The new ship will be called the Foudroy anu and she will cost $12,250,000, which is $2,250,000 more than was expended on the Dreadnaught. The new monster will have no fun nels and will make no smoke. Her engines will bo driven by gas, which, besides taking up less room than steam engines, will allow a greater qieed. She will be 550 feet long and will mount twelve gnat 135 guns, while no other battleship now build ing provides for guns larger than 12-inch. These new weapons are the outV come of years of experimental work that has been going on In the British arsenals, and when they get Into ac tion nothing now ufloat can stand up against them. As the Foudroyant will not burn coa, she will be able to creep up closer to an enemy without being de tected than any other warship except a few torpedo boats can now do. On a dark night the Foudroyant will be able to get among a hostile fleet and put her terrific battery into action before any of the enemy has had an Inkling of her whereabouts. The armor on the Foudroyant will be 12 Inches thick, and she will have a speed of 23 knots an hour.
