Command er Th.tericnsen,- com ; mandsr of the sea raider, iat in. full uniform with, the official party on the platform- and mingled with American naval officers throughout the cere mony, r: , . In size and gun power the Penn sylvania is greater even than the Queen Elizabeth of the British navy, which led - the recent terrific assault of the allies, on ?the forts . of the Dardanelles. . While the British mon rter .carries larger guns, her main battery is only two-thirds the size of that of the Pennsylvania in number Mid the-American battleship is 3,000 tons greater In size. The main . battery of the Pennsyl rania will consist of twelve 14-lnch, 46 calibre, rifles, set In four turrets, three guns to a turret, the plan of big gun arrangement adopted in the Bister ships- which preceded her, the ' Nevada and . Oklahoma. Her -tonnage measurement is 31,400 against 27,500 for the Nevada and Oklahoma and the Queen Elisabeth. . The Jatter, however, carries eight 15 -Inch rifles, 45 calibre, set two to a turret, while the Nevada and Oklahoma have ten J 4 -inch rifles each In two 3 -gun and E-gun turrets. : In all these ships, in cluding the Pennsylvania, the turrets are all on the center line to concen , Irate their fire on either broadside. Five battleships of the British navy yet to be launched will have less ton nage than the Pennsylvania, the ships of - the Royal Sovereign class being tof 24,500 tons displacement, and none svill equal the Pennsylvania in arma ment Each la designed to carry eight 15-lnch guns. Details of four other British" battleships,- already authorized, are not known here officially. Five ships the Japanese navy estimated for in ,1914 and with their displacement of 30,000 tons, but will carry the same main battery -of twelve 14-ineh rifles. They wjll ex eed the Pennsylvania in speed, esti mates calling for 22 knots against 21 knots for the Pennsylvania. The 1814 estimates for the German navy call for three ships of the Kaiser- FTedricb.

Since the outbreak of the war de tails as to foreign naval programs have been jealously guarded and it is probable' that Great Britain, Germany and France have laid down many vessels of which no report has been made. So far as is known, however, no vessels have been planned which will exceed in size the three Ameri can ships of the California class, wrrk on which has barely started. These will have a . displacement of 32,000 tons each , and . armament equal to that of the Pennsylvania, The cruising' radius of the Penn sylvania will be considerably increas ed by .the fact, that she will be equipped for oil fuel exclusively and will have a capacity of 2,322 tons of fuel oil. - The Queen Elizabeth has a capacity of 4,000 tons of oil because of her high speed . requirements. From her enormous main battery the Pennsylvania will be able to hurl, with the pressure- of a single firing lever, 7 1-2 tons of steel on either broadside. In addition she will carry a secondary battery of twenty-two 6 inch rifles for defense against tor pedo boats. She will be fitted also with four submerged 2 1-inch torpedo tubes and her ships company will be composed of 65 officers, 8 63 blue jackets and 74 marines. The ship measures 608 feet over all and 9 7 feet beam and her mean draft is 28 feet, 10 inches, almost the limit in size for the Panama Canal and pres ent navy dry docks. There are only few docks in. the world which can re ceive her and she could not enter many busy harbors except under most favorable conditions of tide and wind. When completed the Pennsylvania will have cost the government more than $13,000,000. She will be ready for commission, under contract,- by February 28, 1916. Her keel ,was laid October 27, 1913. The enormous size of the new ship and the startling rapidity with which oattleship misconstruction had devel oped, even before the great war, is indicated by comparison of the Penn sylvania with the British battleship Dreadnaught, first of - all-big-gun ships in' any navy. The Dreadnaught was estimated for in 1907. She was designed to displace 17,900 tons but actually is considerably larger. In the main battery are ten 12-inch guns with a broadside fire of six guns and her trial speed was 21.2 knots. ' The Pennsylvania will be equipped with turbine engines as Is the Okla homa, the Queen Elizabeth and all of the newest English, German and Japanese battle eraft.

If the experi ment on the California with electric drive, current to. be generated by steam turbines running at high speed, is successful, the engine problem may be solved. It already has proved satisfactory in a navy collier and the experiment with the California only needs to " determine' ; whether it is equally efficient in high power, plants. v i British Field Marshals. A British field marshal never retires from the army. , He may be placed on half pay. but is still borne on, the ac tive list By the 'regulations there mast not be more than eight field mar shals receiving pay as such that Is, exclusive o,f honorary field marshals, such "as foreign kings, emperors and princes.

Ireland's Own, : ' - ' Napoleon's Name. 'A Greek scholar called attention to a very cunoua coincidence about , the name of Napoleou. If you take away the first letter of his name you have "apoleon;" take away the first letter of that word, and you have "poieon:" do this sucpessively down to tbe last syl lable, and you have "'leon, "eon" and "on." Put these several words togeth er in this order. Napoleon on oleon leon eon apoleou poleon. and you have a Greek phrase the literal translation of which is "Napoleon, being the lion of peoples, went about destroying cities." Exchange.

The minor coppers, Alaska Gold, . Central Leather and Motor shares made general gains, while leaders were slightly lower or 1 un changed." Later Bethlehem Steel and Texas Co., were added to the list of higher prices, the former advancing two points. Reading's uncertain course reflected current gossip con nected with its future dividend pros pects. Some very substantial reces sions were recorded by our stocks in London, notably Canadian Pacific, Reading and Union Pacific. , Read ing became acutely weak toward mid day, declining two points to 142 3-8 on steady; selling, much of which was ascribed to out of town sources. The rest of the list was sympathetically affected. Specialties fell back eas ily and the activities of the short in terest became more pronounced. Bonds were lower, several large blocks of the New York Central de bentures 6's selling at lowest prices.
