LIFE ON A MAN-OF-WAR
A TIMELY TOPIC IN CONNECTION
WITH THE CHILIAN DIFFICULTY.
The Equipment of the Cruiser Boston
How En Route for Valparaiso — How
Captain Wlltse's Gallant Crew Will
Get In Trim for Possible Conflict.
(Copyright, 1891, by American Press Associa
T IS only a few
weeks ago that
the United States
received orders to
snil for Valparai
so. Since t hen the
ment at Washing
ton has received
news from Cap
tain Schley, com
manding the Bal
timore, of the Pa
ciflc station, that some of his sailors have
been murdered and that the lives and
property of American subjects arc no
longer safe in Chili; consequently the
United States cruiser Boston, tinder the
command of Captain Gilbert C. Wiltse,
has been dispatcned with a complement, of
36 officers and 272 men to the scene of t .c
Though in modern days a man-of-war is
nearly always kept in righting trim, or can
at least prepare for action in a very short
time, yet there is a great difference between
the outfit she receives when going on a
peaceable cruise and one for war.
Both the Yorktown aud the Boston were
prepared for tbe latter purpose before leav
ing the Brooklyn navy yard, aud they have
sailed with a full complement of men, ami
with their ammunition magazine, provi
sion store and coal bunkers stocked to the
utmost capacity. This is necessary to make
the vessel as independent as possible dur
ing the time of her commission. It is not.
always possible to obtain provisions, coal
or ammunition iv foreign waters, espe
cially when closely watched by tho enemy.
Few people can have an idea what it means
for a vessel like the Boston to take stores
for a whole year. There are 300 jack tars
on board, and each of them has an appe
tite almost equal to that of two ordinary
landsmen. Here is a list of the provisions
which the Boston needs for a twelve
Ninety-four thousand Aye hundred pounds
of biscuits, 81,800 pounds of salt beef, 40,800
ponnds of salt pork, 23,400 pounds of preserved
meats, l. r >,400 pounds of flour, 13,050 pounds of
coffee and cocoa, 7,800 pounds of rice, 8,000
ponnds of butter, 3,000 pounds of dried fruit,
8,000 pounds of pickles, 23,400 pints of beans and
peas, 27,800 ponnds of su?ar, 3,412 pounds of 1 ea,
7,800 pints of molasses, 7,800 pints of vinegar.
The total cost of the above amounts to
about $34,000. This, however, is only what
the crew eats, but to it not less than $70,
--000 worth of coal, which the engines will
devour in a year, must be added, and an
other $30,000 for ammunition, so there is a
nice total of $134,000 for the food of the
crew, tho engines und guns. The pay roll
will be about $132,000, and the wear and
tenr of the vessel may well be estimated at
$43,000, or all iv nil $309,000 for one year's
Naturally no mau-of-wnr can carryall
the coal that she needs for months, but
before going into action she takes on board
as much ns she possibly can stow. Filled
coal bunkers in unarmored cruisers of the
Boston class afford a fairly good side pro
tection for the engine and boiler room,
while the deck protection over them gen
erally consists of strong steel plates vary
ing from I}£ to 3}_ inches in thickness.
During the long cruise of 11,000 miles,
which is the distance from New York to
Valparaiso, the Boston will have to coal
at various places and ultimately at Sand
point, in the straits, where she will take
all the coal she can carry, namely, 500 tons.
Whenever iv port the men are supplied
with fresh provisions from shore and noth
ing is taken from the stores. This is done
to give a variety to the monotonous bill of
fare ou a man-of-war.
It is hardly possible to describe the pri
vations men will endure when a high aim,
such as tho glory of their flag, is constant
ly before them. Jack may grumble at
home, but when abroad there is no ra.-fn
prouder of his country than he. This la
even the case in peace, but much more so
in war. Then ho is conscious that the
eyes of his country are constantly and
anxiously watching every movement of
his vessel, and Jack and his ship are one.
During the Boston's voyage life on
board will chiefly consist of the regular
everyday man-of-war routine, namely,
eight hours work out of twenty-four, be
sides a little gun and rifle practice, and
occasionally some extra duty when gales
blow hard and old Neptune, get ting angry,
furiously beats the waters with his mythic
CAPTAIN GILBERT C. WILTSE.
After the ship has left Sandpoint. and is
approaching her destination the duty on
board will increase, but then Jack does
not care for that; his mind is excited, and
in his eagerness to see the enemy he will
forget the extra strain on his daily exist
ence. When off duty the men will grave
ly discuss the situation, give various opin
ions on the different ways in which it
would be beat to tackle the enemy, and in
variably arrive at the conclusion that the
latter some way or other is sure to have
the worst of it, for lie can have no chance
against Jack on his own vessel.
The Boston is not a cruiser of the latest
type; she, the Dolphin, tho Atlanta and
Chicago formed the nucleus of Uncle
Sam's new navy. Consequently she has no
real military mast armed with rapid firing
guns, but is like most of the old wooden
cruisers, brig rigged, and carries about
SU.OOO square feet of sail. Her sails do not
help her much, however, for with all her
canvas spread and her machinery disabled
she would not be able to make more than
four miles an hour, while her actual speed
derived from steam power is 15>£ knots.
.Before appearing on the scene of action a
good deal of her rigging will be taken
down and her masts, aa far as possible, dis
mounted and stored away. Most of her
lifeboats will be taken from their davits
and placed above deck or stored where
they cannot interfere with the aiming of
her guns and the maneuvers of her crew.
In olden times captains usually sank their
lifeboats before going into action, but this
is not done any longer, except In cases
where there is no room ou -
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 6, 1891
The deck of a man-of-war prepared for
action looks much more like the Inner
parapet of a fort than like a vessel's deck.
The Boston carries two 8-inch guns on
her bows; three 6-inch guns on her star
board and an equal number of 6-inch guns
on her port side. For the training of these
guns forty men are needed. Besides these
she has eleven rapid firing and machine
guns, which require the service of twenty
nine additional men. These men, with an
equal number of reserves, have no other
duty to perform except to take care of
their guns. It goes without saying that
when the Boston will be lying before Val
paraiso, half her crew will always be on
duty while the other half are resting. Her
guns will be all loaded and a small num
ber of cartridges piled near them for im
mediate use, while another supply will be
placed on her lower decks.
The ammunition magazine and the en
gine and boiler room are in every man-of
war the best protected parts of the ship, and
the hatchways leading to them are kept
closed while the fight is raging, for a single
shell may explode the formeror disable tbe
latter, and iv both cases ship and me,n are
doomed. Every officer and man on board
has his station should it become necessary
to open fire. At night, the timo when tor
pedo attacks are most likely to be made,
the torpedo nets are lowered and the elec
tric search light kept playing in every di
rection. On the watchfnluess and vigi
lance of tbe sentries depends the safety of
ship aud crew, and any negligence of duty
by.men or officers in this direction is pun
ished with the utmost severity. This, how
ever, hardly ever happens, for Jack knows
well that he is watching for his own life.
Whenever fire is opened thecaptain, who
in time of peace does little or no actual rou
tine service, steps on tbe bridge and takes
command. Nothing is done except he
orders it. Every movement of the vessel
and the firing of every gun depends on his
word of command. Near him stands tho
executive officer, the navigating officer and
his aids. There is no shouting, no confu
sion, for every man knows or Is told what
he has to do. Some men are designated to
train the guns, others to firo them; there
are men to carry ammunition and others
to take care of the wounded and the dead.
To board an enemy's vessel nowadays is al
most an impossibility on account of the
THE CRUISER BOSTON.
large number of machine guns on every
warship afloat. All that eon and must he
done is to kill as many us possible of the
crew, disable t he vessel or, better still, sink
When a vessel carries torpedoes the serv
ice on board becomes more complicated,
as in this case night attacks will be often
attempted for the purpose of destroying as
many vessels as possible of the enemy's
fleet. The latest improved torpedoes, how
ever, have only a range of 500 yards, and
consequently make it necessary for the at
tacking vessel to approach the enemy at
snch close quarters that even musketry
fire becomes effective, not to speak of the
havoc of machine guns. Only (lark nights
are chosen for such attacks. All lights are
extinguished on board, anil after the posi
tion of the enemy has been ascertained the
attacking vessel steams slowly up to her.
No noise must be made, and every word of
command is therefore given in a subdued
voice until the vessel has come within the
proper torpedo range. Once tho death
dealing missile is iirod the position of the
attacking vessel, of course, is revealed to
the enemy, who in turn respouds with a
hail of shell and bullets. It. is in such mo
ments that Jack is placed ou his mettle
and is obliged to keep cool, for confusion,
dangerous as it is In daytime, becomes
doubly so during t!ie night.
Regarding the wounded, it may be said
that whenever there are several surgeons
oue will attend to them ou deck, while
the rest, comparatively safe in tho cockpit,
will perform their duty there. The men
who have to can y tlie wounded have ano
less dangerous duty to perform than'those
who are combatants. They are quite as
much exposed to the deadly fire on deck
without having the satisfaction ot taking
active part in it or returning shot for shot.

Dear fcir—l wish, for Ihe benefit of sufferers
with rheumatism or stomach troubles, to sub- j
scribe the following: It has been my misfor
-1 tune to be a sufferer with rheumatism at dif- \
fi-renl periodß of my life, two attacks lasting j
nearly two years each.
About four months ago I was prostrated with
an aggravated case of inflammatory rheuma
tism in my knees, hands, wrists, etc. Also had
sciatica in my right thigh and some pains in
my bacl;. Alter seven weeks in bed, with a
prospect of as many months before me, a
friend recommended your I?:emony. I pro
cured a bottle, and after taking six teaspoon
fuls, or six doses, in three days. I was able to
go down town on a pair of crutches. In a
week's time the crutches were put aside, and
today I am enjoying my usual good health,
with no pains or soreness.
I have suffered for years with dyspepsia,
water brash, sour stomach, etc., and to mysur
\ prise and delight, after fourbottlesof Hamony,
I am entirely cured, and can eat as heartily aa
when a child, aud am not distressed thereby.
I cannot say too much for Hamonv. Very
trnlv yours, E. B. BKECIIER.
