The United States is the fifth naval power in the world. The navies of Great Britain, France, Russia and Italy rank ahead in the order named. Germany and the United States are about tied. Our present effective lighting force consists of four battleships of the first class, onebattleshipof the second-class ( two armored cruisers, eighteen cruis ers, fifteen gun boats, six double tur reted monitors, one ram, one dyna mite gunboat, one dispatch, one trans port anil eight toqiedo boats. The lowa weighs nearly 12,000 tons, and as twenty tons is the average load of a freight car and twelve cars is a good load for a locomotive engine, it would take fifty locomot : ves to haul the great steel structure. The powder used is brown and in chunks the size of a caramel. A charge for the biggest guns weighs 500 pounds and is hoisted to the breech by a derrick, the powder being sewed up in burlap bags. Armor plates are tested by firing steel projectiles weighing from 100 to 1,500 pounds at them from guns charged with 500 pounds of gowder and at a distance of about a city block. Our battleships have a speed of from fifteen to seventeen knots an hour. Cruisers make nineteen to twenty-four knots, while the moni tors can travel only five to seven knots. The biggest guns in the navy are forty-nine feet long, big enough for a man to crawl into; four feet in diameter at their largest part, and weigh 135,500 pounds, or thereabouts. There are six rear-admirals in ac tive service. The offices of vice-ad miral and admiral are unfilled, so there is no head of the navy except ing Secretary Long. Barnacles form* on the hull of a ship, impeding its speed. A six months' cruise will decrease the speed of a ship 15 percent, and it must go into dry dock. Sixty-one merchant vessels belong to the auxiliary navy. These ships arc subsidized and by contract must be given to the United States on de mand. Some of the guns in the navy can tire a shot twelve miles, farther than a man can see, for the guns are aimed and sighted by machinery. The amount expended by the navy department in 1897 was $34,561,546. This is a larger sum than hns been ex|>ended in any year since 1866. In a battle, the woodwork and all ar ticles of wood are either stowed be low or thrown overboard, lest the men be injured by splinters. The origin of the navy department may bo said to date from Oct. 13, 1775, when Congress authorized the . equipment of two cruisers. The fastest vessels in the navy are the torpedo boats Porter and Dupont, each of which can travel 27.5 knots an hour. Battleships cost from $2,500,000 to $3,750,000, and cruisers from $600,000 to $3,000,000. A good torpedo boat costs over SIOO,OOO. Battle-ships are for the heavy work; cruisers are the commerce destroyers; monitors are useful only for coast de fense. The Indianacould lie outside Sandy Hook and throw 1,200-pound shots into New York at the rate of four a minute. Those artists who show smoke in their pictures of naval battles are wholly wrong. Smokeless powder is used. All of the cruisers are named in honor of cities, and the battle-ships, except the Kearsarge, in honor of States. The " grog" ration was abolished in 1863, and since then the crew has been forbidden to drink while on duty. Marines are the police on board ship. Originally they were employed to prevent mutiny among the sailors. The guns of a battle ship can carry front six to twelve miles, carrying a shot weighing half a ton. Only 60 per cent, of the enlisted men are Americans, and a smaller percentage yet are native born. Projectiles thrown by naval guns are shaped ntuch as the bullets thrown by the ordinary rifle. A big battle-ship has on tioard an electric plant capable of lighting a town of 5,000 inhabitants. The boilers of the lowa have a heating surface of eight acres and hold thirty tons of water. Great Britain has 204 torpedoes and "Hew to the Line. Let the Chips LYill "Where they May." torpedo-boat destroyer*; I nele Sam has only eight. Five hundred and twenty-six moil are required to man the eruiser New / York. I Battle-ships are covered with armor of nickel steel from live to seven in- dies thick. We have four armored battle-ships —the Indiana, lowa, Massachusetts, and Texas. A submarine torpedo boat to be known as the Hunger is now under construction. At present the total cidistcd force of the naval militia is 3,870 oflicers and men. Behind the heavy armor there is a padding of either corn pith or cocoa husks. It costs $">00 every time one of the big guns on boaid a ship is fired. The Brooklyn and the New York are our armored cruisers. Sailors are paid from $9.50 to $12." 50 per month and board. An act of Congress in 1872 abolished flogging in the navy. The American navy has practically all becu built since 1883. A captain in the navy ranks with a colonel in the army. The oldest iron vessel is the Michi gan built in 1844. Five battleships are now under con struction. We have the only ram—the Katha din. Teddie Tucker's Two Terrapins The tortuous Tiber trends through TuScany. To Tuscany the Tuckers toured, timely taking the train. Two truckmen transported their trunks. Teddie Tucker took two tremendous terrapins. Terrible thunder told towering tempests to tumble. Teddie, tearful, trembled to the toes. Through the tempest, through tunnels, too, the trusty train toiled to Tuscany. There the track terminated. Then the trolley transferred them to the tavern. Tuesday Teddie took the terrapins to the Tiber. They, though torpid, trod the turf. There tired toilers tote twigs, trying therewith to thatch therewith the tumbledown tenements; tricky traders traffic; terriers, tor menting tame tabbies, toss them topsyturvy: tree toads tunefully trill their treble tones; tulips thickly thrive. Teddie tightly tied the terrapins to tree, then toying, tiptoeing, tried to touch theTi!>er, twice, thrice; then, toppling, tasted the Tiber. "Tommy Tinker!" Teddie thun dered. Thomas Tinker, Tuscany's tailor, thinking Teddie troubled, therefore tramped to the Tiber. Thomas threw the tape that tied the terrapins to Teddie. " There, Teddie, take the tape." The twisted tape, tangled, tore Teddie's thumbs. The terrapins thereupon tenaciously took Teddie's trousers 'twixt their teeth. Thomas, tugging, took the tape. Thus to gether they triumphantly transplanted Teddie to terra firma. 'Twas twilight. Trifling takes time. Thaukful Teddie trudged to the tavern to the testable. Toast, turkey, truffles, tomatoes, trooped through Teddie's throat. Tired Teddy then trotted to tub, thence to trundlebed. Thursday the tourists traveled to Toulon. The Tiber trails through Tuscany, through transplendent thoroughfares, through thrifty towns. The terrapins, transferred to the Tiber, tarry there together. The longest fence in the world is probably that which has just been fin ished by the Erie Cattle company along the Mexican border. It is 75 miles in length and separates exactly for its entire distauce the two repub lics of North America. The fence was built to keep the cattle from running across the border and falling easy prey to the Mexican cow punchers. Al though it cost a great deal of money, it is estimated that cattle enough will be saved in one year to more than pay for it. It is a barbed wire fence, with mosquito and Cottonwood poles, and for the entire length it runs as straight as the crow flies. I'ELHAM, in the Stateof New York, is the smallest village in the country and a short time ago a miniature election was held. All of Pelhant's nine voters went to the polls and cast their nine ballots for or against an appropriation of $15,000 for road improvements. It took ten minutes to get the vote in, and the result was six ballots to three, favoring the appropriation. " How true it is," muttered Mr. Meeker, ' that actions speak louder than words! They strike the ear with more force." And he softly rubbed his right au ricular organ which his energetic spouse had just boxed. OLYMITA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, APRIL 22, 1898. A WOMAN SHERIFF. MISS CLAIRE FERGUSON, OF SALT She Is an Ardent Democrat—Win. J. Bryan's Name on Iler Bond- Site Stumped the State for Bry an and Was Called the Mascot of the Party. Miss Claire Ferguson, of Salt Lake City, Utah, occupies, perhaps, the most novel and dangerous position of any young woman in the country. She is Deputy Sheriff of Salt Lake county, and was appointed to that po sition in the regular manner by Sheriff Lewis, of the same county. Miss Fer guson formerly filled the position of stenographer in the Sheriff's office, but recognizing her ability and cleverness, Mr. Lewis rewarded her by promotion. Front now on site will serve pajiers and notify jurors, says the New York Herald, and it is expected that open venires henceforth will result in juries of much younger men than have us ually graced the jury box in the past. Her position is one of responsibility, and when taking the oath of office she was compelled to file a bond of $5,000, and as she is an ardent Demo crat, she takes much pride in the fact that the name of W. J. Bryan was at tached to this document. Although Miss Ferguson's duties, as a rule, will not carry her into places of danger, a Deputy Sheriff is sup posed to be always ready to go forth when the Sheriff calls. Therefore, those things which this daring young lady may be called upon to do as a matter of business would make the av erage girl shrink in terror. For in stance, there is a possibility that she may be appointed Lord High Execu tioner, and be compelled to officiate as hangman, or hangwomati, as it hap pens in this case. Then again site may have to go out on the trail of fierce brigands and sec that they are safely escorted to jail. In this latter capacity she may be obliged to use a rifle or revolver now and then to compel the lawbreakers to submit to her will. It may also fall to her lot to take the prisoners out on the highway and keep watch of the chain gang while they are engaged in improving the public roads. In fact, the duties of a Deputy Sheriff are as multifarious as they are dangerous, and Miss Ferguson may be sorry some day that she tackled the situation. In speaking of her novel position to a Herald representative the young lady gives her views of the matter as fol lows : " I fully realized what I was under taking when I first made up my mind to apply for the position. Before I was ap|>ointed Deputy Sheriff, I acted as stenographer in the Sheriff's office, and, although the duties were not dif ficult to perform, I grew very tired of the work and longed for a change. Now I am outdoors in the open air most of the time, and I never tire of the work. There is something new and interesting every day. " Now, yesterday, just to illustrate this point, I was given a subpoena to serve on a man who had eluded every known method that had been tried on him by other members of our office. There was spice in this for nte, and I at once resolved to capture or corner my ntan. I succeeded in carrying out my plans to the letter, and tlio sub poena was served without more delay 4 I like to do things out of tlio ordinary, and perhaps my leve for such things is directly responsible for my promo tion. " I know, also, that events may conte up at any time which may place me in dangerous places, but I am willing to take nty chances. Why should I fear more than the men? The duties of the Sheriff's office must be per formed, and if a woman lias the proper amouut of self-reliance and energy I cannot see why she should not be per fectly able to carry out Iter orders as well as a man. I feel that I can, and I am going to strive during my term in office to perform nty duties faith, fully and without shirking the un pleasant portion of the work." M iss Ferguson was born apd raised in the State of Utah and was educated at the State universary. She has taken an active interest in politics since she WAS a child, and during the last campaign stumped the State of Utah with a party ot speakers in the interest of Bryan and silver. They called her the " mascot" of the Demo cratic party, and it has been frequently remarked that she has made more votes than all the speakers put to gether. Miss Ferguson lias always wished to study law and may do so yet, being a naturally gifted orator. She is very fond of outdoor sports, particu larly riding and driving, and is an en thusiastic whcelwontati. Miss Ferguson lias had a good musi cal education and is a favorite in social circles, being oue of the recog- LAKE. A DEPUTY ized leaders of the younger set. She is a daughter of Mrs. Dr. Ellen It. Ferguson, who attracted considerable attention as the only women delegate in the National Democratic conven tion at Chicago. Mrs. Ferguson is President of the Democratic clubs in Utah and the lending woman politician of the State. Miss Ferguson's father before his death was a practising physician at Salt Lake City, and through him she is related to the late Gen. U. S. Grant. On her mother's side, Miss Ferguson belongs to the Brooke family of England, and is very proud of the fact that site is a lineal descendant of the great Earl Warwick, the " King Maker." Miss Ferguson's appointment is probably due to the fact of her great popularity in the Democratic party. FORTUNES BY ACCIDENT. San Francisco Chronicle. If there is anything that makes a poor, toiling man happy it is to read about flukes that have made fortunes. For instance, there was a captain of a vessel plying between English and Australian who made a lucky strike when convicts were taken to New- Sou th Wales. A " time-expired" man came to the mariner and begged to be taken home. The former convict had no money, but he would gladly give his plot of land for transportation. The captain accepted the terms, and great is the joy of his descendants, for that plot is now occupied by a wharf and is valued at $1,125,000. A Limerick tobacconist believed himself to be ruined by a fire that de stroyed his shop. The next day he found tins of snuff that had been in the fire. Curiosity prompted him to open the canisters. He found that the action of the flames had materially improved the aroma and pungency of the snuff. The discovery made him very rich. The discovery of the Mount Shcba mine was purely a tluke, and its out put of gold is the greatest of any mine in the world except in Klondike dis trict. A bank clerk in Loudon heard that there was a rich de|>osit of gold at a certain place at the Cape of Good Hope. He sat about forming a pro visional syndicate among his fellow clerks, and they raised about $1,500 among themselves. A mining engi neer was sent out. He made a thor ough investigation but found no gold. He had decided to give up the search and was ready to leave for home when he ran across a miner. " Well, stranger," he said, " I guess you are on a hunt for the shiny. 'Tain't here, boss." " Have you a claim here?" asked the engineer. "Yes, and I want to make tracks up the country. That's nty claim over by that camel's hump. You can have it for SIOO, and here's a sample of the quartz. That claim ain't worth its weight in gold, hut its worth every dollar I ask for it." The engineer examined the speci men and decided that there was gold in it. He acted quickly. " I'll tell you what I'll do, mate," he said: " I'll give you SBO on the risk of losing it." The bargain was struck and the claim carefully explored. An abun dance of gold was found in the most unlikely vein. To day the shares, the face value of which is SIOO, arc worth $500,000 each. Another Big Nugget. The Klondike is not the whole thing. A 70-pound nugget, worth $20,000, has been found in a Russian mining district in eastern Asia. The information comes front the American consul at Moscow, whither the uews had been sent from Tomsk. It was found in the Bpasso Preobrajcnsk mines, situated on the river Chibyek, in the district of Yeansay. In size this ranks eleventh among the nug gets on record. Only one larger was ever found in Russia. There is no doubt that rich and extensive gold de posits will be unearthed iu Siberia. For a long time mining has been done there mostly by convict labor and on a limited scale. With the opening up of the country by the railroad a con siderable immigration will occur, front Russia and elsewhere, and mining will be extended and developed, along with agriculture and commerce. The yield of gold may be expected to increase rapidly, us there is a great deal of promising ground to be worked, and quartz of rich quality is also to lie found. These auriferous deposits doubtless extend into Manchuria, the newly acquired province, which is in itself a small empire with great na tural resources. The next gold rush ntay be to Siberia. If the trend of the gold deposits were followed front Cali ifornia it would probably be found to extend in an almost unbroken line northward to the Yukon aiul on into Siberia aiul China. WHOPLACEDTHE MINE A MAN BY THE NAME OF CRAN DALLSAYS HE DID IT. Secret Service Agents Said to Have Captured Hint in Chicago —His Alleged Confession—lt is of Surpassing Importance, if True. The 'l7 men-Herald, of Chicago, of the Istli inst. snvs: Charles A. Crandall, ulias Emanuel Escadaro, who, acting under the per sonal orders of Captain-General Wcylcr, planted the mines and tor pedoes in the harbor of Havana, has been run to earth in Chicago. Last night he was in the custody of three United States secret service agents, who are taking him to Washington, where lie is expected to give informa tion to prove beyond any possible doubt that the Maine was blown up by a mine, and Iter 266 officers and men murdered designedly by agencies known to the Spanish officials, lie was run down by a Cuban spy. Ever since the Maine was blown up Crandall, or Escadaro, has been dodg ing about the country. When the secret service agents assured him he would lie protected he, volunteered to accompany them. Crandall's statements are substanti ated by letters in his possession from Wevler's officers and from Weyler himself. His story is as follows: "My name is Charles A. Crandall. I am an American by birth and for merly lived in New York city. I served in the United States navy on the cruiser San Francisco under Cap tain Sampson and Admiral Brown. It was while in the United States ser vice that I made a study of mines and torpedoes. I left the navy and went to Lima, Peru, where I entered the employ of Grace & Co., of London, in their nitrate beds. "While at Lima I met many Span iards. One of them Eniil Liestello, an agent of the Spanish government, induced me to go to Cuba as an ex pert on coast defense for General Weyler. I was given free transporta tion to the Island, and when I arrived there I met Antonio Marco Diaz, who assigned me to harbor work and platting for torpedo and mine anchor age. 1 began laying the mines and torpedoes early in the spring of 1896 and finished a year later. "My work was performed at night. I was assisted by five Italian laborers and two Spanish boatmen. In all 17 mines and 10 torpedoes were placet!. The mines were made in England and the torpedoes in Italy. The work of laying them was very slow, because it was ordered that I should not work on moonlight nights. When my work was completed I made a chart show ing the location of all the mines and torpedoes and submitted it to General Weyler. " I was then directed to place three mines and seven torpedoes in the har bor of Matcuzas. This was completed early in last July. When I had fin ished General Weyler ordered nte to place an additional mine near buoy No. 4, which made a complete chain of mines about the harbor from side to sitle front the mouth of the harbor to the last anchorage. "On ono occasion General Weyler scut for nte to visit him at the palace with the direction that I should ap pear in the uniform of an officer of artillery, sent nte for that purpose. When I went to the palaco General Weyler asked me if it were possible for a ship to enter the harbor and leave it with the chain of torpedoes and mines there. I showed him my rough chart and he especially directed several changes, especially in the channel op posite the navy yard. " When my work was done and his artillery aid had approved the plans, he handed mo nty passport to Key West and assured me that I would re ceive pay when the first mine or tor pedo was used. " I remained in Havana until Feb ruary 10, when I went to Key West, where I stayed until March 3, on which date I received my last Spanish gold front Havana from a Spanish messenger. "After the Maine was blown up I kept in ltiding with a colored family near Fort Taylor, and as soon as I re ceived word to skip out I left as a stowaway on the first steamer for Mi- " The Maine was anchored at the identical buoy w lucre General Weyler ordered me to place the additional mine, officially known as buoy No. 4. " From Miami I went to Nashville, where I received the following letter front Havana, dated March 1,1898. "' Destroy all evidence. Go to New York. Ticket for London awaits you there. DIAZ. "This was front Weyler's long trusted adjutant and spy, who exe cutes all edicts issued by Weyler from Spain." TEX COUNTS AGAINST SPAIN. From report of " Committee on the State of the Country" to the New York M. E. conference: Wc believe that the following facts constitute an indictment demanding the expulsion of Spanish rule from Cuba: First—lts destruction of commercial interests of the United States, already making an invoice of millions of treasure. Second—lts insolent searching of our merchantmen on the high seas and repudiation of claims for rcstitu" tion. Third—lts cowardly insult to our honored President by its Representa tive to our nation's capital. Fourth—lts trival treatment of in ternational diplomatic relations. Fifth lts requiring the United States, in obedience to humiliating treaty obligations, to police the seas to prevent the extension of aid to strug gling patriots seeking aid. Sixth—lts criminally permissive, if not ordered, destruction of the United States battleship Maine, with the loss of the lives of 20(5 American defenders. Seventh—lts barbarity and inhu manity in the methods of warfare, with its treacherous murder of men, its herding and starving of aged men and women and children to the extent of over four hundred thousand in number; its ingenious and extermi nating tortures of a people it Has nei ther the courage nor the vigor to con quer. Eighth—lts sacrilegious pretext of claiming to be a Christian nation. Ninth—lts prostitution of the moral sense of our nation by obliging it for years to look upon and become famil iar with fieudish barbarism, so near us that wo can almost hear the cries of its victims. Tenth—lts paralyzing power upon tlio Christian civilization of the cen tury by holding in darkness denser than that of the middle ages, the in habitants of the fairest island of the sea. War Taxes. Members of the ways and means committee have been busily engaged with treasury officials in work pre liminary to drafting a war revenue measure to be introduced in Congress immediately upon the opening of hos tilities with Spain. An increase in the internal revenue tax on beer from $L to $2 per barrel, and a large in crease in the tax on manufactured tobacco, including cigars and cigarettes has been practically agreed upon. Bank checks, bills of exchange, drafts, deeds, mortgages and other papers of this class, patent medicines and nos. trums, in all probability, will also be added to the list. A rough estimate of the receipts to be derived front these sources is that the increase on these articles alone will approximate, if not exceed, $100,000,- 000 a year. Beer, it is thought, will produce an increase of $35,000,000; tobacco, an increase of $33,000,000 or more and commercial and patent medicines, $33,000,000. Another source of revenue, which is certain to be availed, is transactions in railroad and other listed stocks. It is believed that the returns from this source will be large. In all figuring so far, the remaining industries aud the professions which were taxed strictly for war revenue during the rebellion have been left out of the account. An increase from 2 to 3 cents on letter postage and a tax on gas and electric light has also been suggested to the department, but these items have not been considered. The in crease of 1 cent, an ounce on letter postage probably would augment the receipts by $30,000,000 a year. Au open Letter to mother*.
