A New Engine of Destruction Added to i:ae Navy. NEW YORK, Nov. officii! iepcrcs cn a he Holland submarine boat from John Lowe, Captain, Unied States Navy, and the Board of Inspec tion and Surrey, the prsideni of which is F.sderick Rogers, United Sia.es Na vy, were made nubile today. Both re ports deal at length in the r.ecnnicali- C2 2S of the triads and both agree Jha,t the trials have ba successful in ai rnoic every particular. Captain Lowe, in addition, Eubmits a report of his ob servations as ordered by the Govern ment. The trial cf the Holland boat took place cn November 8 before the Board of Inspection and Survey. The start was made off New Suffolk, L I., with nine men on board, or four more than when g-oing into a fight. There were three Whitehead torpedoes on board. The te::s comprised aunning on the surface and under the water.diving and torpedo firing, and they were all very successful. Captain Lowe concludes his techni cal report as follows: "I report my belief that the Holland is a successful and veritable submarine torpedo-boa.t, capable of making a veritable attack upon an enemy unseen and undeteota b e, and 'that, 'therefore, ,s'he is -an en gine of warfare or terrible potency, which the Government tmusc necessa rily adept into its service." Of -his personal observations, he says: . "Concerning the worse (than vorthIe3snes3 of the present above water torpedo system, its methods, theories and appliances, the need for a deliverance from its absurdities and from the fools' paradise of its false security, and instead the absolute need of a real torpedo system, such as the submarine system, I have "already re ported under date of November 14, 1898. "I would like to give further (reasons why a submarine service should at once be organized as a matter of pub lic necessity and security. In the first place we must concede that, notw.'ith standing The Hague conference, the time has not yet arrived for nations to disarm; on the contrary, that na 'ticn which is not 'ready to fight, that ceases to study war, that ceases to u the most t rightful appliances wnen war is arade, has already placed itself in a position of inferiority and has ceased ito poasess those valuable at tribute which are well described in the term manhood. "We have distant dependencies, the Philippines, Hawaii and the like. Will an enemy .seek to hring us to terms by attacking these? Perhaps so. But if so, the move would be a weak one, ex ceedingly weak. Let us not deceive ourselves. Any powerful enemy would net play warfare in !:hat fashion. They would strike us in the vitals. An eight-day dash across the Atlantic would bring their iships to Mont auk Poi'nt. where they would encounter the American fleet, which 'being destroyed by force of numbens, vhe remainder of the snamy's ships could pass on and anchor in Long lsla-nd sound in per fect security and very shortly Lon Island would become a foreign posses sion. We need right ort and rigxit now fifty submarine torpedo vessels in Long Island sound to preserve the paces and to give potency to our diplo macy. "It seems to be quite a 'necessity that this Government should not allow this skill and knowledge of those owning and running the Holland boat to pass out of its own hands from native to foreign lands, but should forestall such a catastrophe by purchasing the Hol- 'and and putting the Holland people under eoime ban whereby they will be prevented from disclosing secrets to the disadvantage of the United States." i 13 Commission Merchants QUEEN STREET.
