Ill Have Heavy ami liapid Fire Omi Their Speed Greater Than Usual. Washington, April 9. Good pro gress is being made in the prepara- Son of p.'::" for the. Defwy athori zed battleships, ganbC od W boats. The latest plans subletted to Secretary Herbert have received his tacit approval and will probably be adopted finally without material change. They differ in several essential points from those hereto fore submitted, especially in the case of the battleships. It has been said that the new battleships will resem ble those of the Indiana class, now under construction. Although this is true in a general way, several im portant departures are proposed in the new vessels. According to the revised plans, they will be much longer and broader and have a great er displacement that the Indiana; their batteries will be more powerful ; the side armor will be thinner, but more generally distributed; their tur ret armor will be thicker in places, and in the location of the eight inch gun turrets a decided innovation is contemplated. THEIR ARMAMENT. It is settled that the vessels will carry four big guns in turrets, two foreword and two aft on the center line, the only question being whether the guns will be 12 inch or 13 inch in caliber. It has been decided that four 8 inch rifles will be in the main battery. The chief departure from the Indiana's plaD, ho far as the guns are concerned, relates to the rest of this battery. The new vessels will each have sixteen 5 inch rapid-fire guns in broadside, instead of four 6 inch rifles of the ordinary type, thus greatly increasing their offensive power. Owing to improvements in the quality of armor, the side plates of the new ships will have a maxi mum thickness of fifteen inches, or three inches less than that of the Indiana. The total weight of the armor will be slightly greater than on the Indiana class. The port plates of the big gun turrets will be seven teen inches thick, or two inches thicker than the Indiana's, and the other plates fifteen inches thick, the same as on that vessel and her sisters. The 8 inch gun turrets will be ten inches thick, or four inches more than on the Indiana. INCREASED SPEED. Another new feature of the pro posed vessels is an increase by two feet in freeboard fore ward. The speed will be sixteen knots, one knot greater than required of the Indiana, and the same as that of the Iowa. The displacement will be 11,500 tons. Inasmuch as the act which author ized the construction of the battle ships carries no appropriation, there will necessarily be some delay in their construction. It is expected that the next Congress will appropri ate the $8,000,000 necessary to pay for the two ships. Proposals for their construction will be invited during the coming summer, however, and every preparation made to begin the work as soon as the funds become available. CAPTAIN DREW'S STEWARD. He Went for a Drive and Now He Regrets. Fred Shore, late steward of the Andrew Welch, is a very angry man. His vessel departed yester day morning, and left him minus a job. Yesterday morning he told the captain he was going up town, but stated no reason. The mate told him the Andrew Welch would not sail until 3 or 4 o'clock this after noon. This was all that the steward desired. He immediately set out for a saloon and at half-past 12 went down to the wharf. He was just in time to see the white sails of his vessel disappearing in the distance. As the vessel was about to depart Captain Drew said to Pilot Mc Auley : "Well, I can't wait any longer." Officer Patterson came along just in time to receive Shore?s valise, which was handed him by the captain. - Tlie Rio de Janiero Wreck. The United States Inspectors of Steam Vessels were engaged in San Francisco recently in examining into the causes of the wreck of the Rio de Janeiro, which went on the rocks near Cape Nomo, Japan, on January 6, 1S90. Captain J. T. Smith testified that the vessel struck at 1 :30 o'clock on the morn ing of the date named, and the re sult was a hole in the forehold 4 by 12 feet. The repairs cost $20,000. Changed His Abode. H. L. Foss, formerly clerk on the Oceanic dock at San Fran cisco, was recently removed to the Alameda county jail for safe keeping. It is claimed that a plan had been formed to aid him in escaping from the San Francisco county jail. He is under arrest charged with forging Chinese reg istration certificates. Steamship Line.

National Caoe Shredder (PATENTED INDKH IHK UWI THB HAWAIIAN INLANDS. Mr. John A. Scott, Managei of the Hilo Sugar Company gives the following wonderful record of the working of the NATIONAL CANE SHRED DER, which was erected bj their works at the commence ment of the crop just hat vested : "During the past week tbe Hilo Sugar Company's mill ex ceeded any of its former records by closing the 125 hours grinding with an output of 300 tons. This is fully 10 per cent, more than the best work of former years. "The three roller mill beiuj.; 26 in. by 54 in. and the two roller mill 30 in. by 60 in. The first mill doing this amount of work in an efficient manner and with great ease, compare.' with work on whole cane owing to thorough preparation of the cane by the National Cane Shredder, recently erec ted by the Company. And by its use the extrac tion has been increased from 3 per cent, to 5 per cent, on sdi kinds of cane, and in some cases 80 per cent, has been reached; the average being 75 to 78 per cent., according t' quality. "I continue to find the megass from shredded cane better fuel than from whole cane. "The shredder has been working day and night foi seven months and has given me entire satisfaction, having shredded during that time about seventy thousand tons of cane, and a large part of it being hard ratoons. "The shredder and engine require very little care or attention." Plans and specification.1; of these shredders may beseei. at the office of We G.
