The New York and Texas.
Marine Journal: On -this, and the
opposite page, are 'illustrated the bat
tleships New York and Texas, the
latest dreadnoughts yet ordered for the
U. S. navy, and a 15,250-ton torpedo
battleship of Italian design. The form
er have the following dimensions and
armament: Length on water line; 565
feet; extreme breadth, 95 feet, 2 5-8
inches; trial displacement, 27,000
tons; trial draft, 28 1-2 feet; total
coal bunker capacity, about 2,850 tons;
coal and fuel oil carried on trial, 2,167
tons; speed on trial, minimum, 21
knots. The- armament will consist of
ten 14-lnch, 45-callbre lines and four
submerged torpedo tubes In the main
battery, and In ( the secondary ' bat
tery twenty-one 6-inch rapid-fire
guns; there will also be four 3-pound-er
guns, for saluting, two 1-pounder
guns for boats, two 3-inch field pieces,
and two 80-callber machine guns.
The torpedo battleship, besides her
displacement already mentioned, has a
length over all of 492 feet; maximum
beam, 75.5 feet; draft, 25.5 feet; motive
power, turbines,, total capacity 36,000
indicated norse-power; speed; " per
hour, 24 knots; radius of action, at 18
knots per hour, 2,000 knots. - In arma
ment, however, she differs radically
from the battleships. For Instance,
she has. thirty under-water torpedo
tubes for the discharge of the long
18-lnch Whitehead torpedoes; twenty
4.7-inch quick-firing guns in individu
al turrets; two 4.7-inch quick-firing
guns in casemates; forward on the
main deck; ten 2.25-inch quick-firing
guns, distribtued forward and aft on
the bridges.
The ship will carry a supply of six
ty automobile torpedoes, and, unlike
the deck tubes of the ordinary tor
pedo boat, these tubes can be reload
ed with perfect security while the ship
Is actually attacking the enemy, If it
be necessary.
The development of the torpedo, is,
according to the Scientific American,
leading some careful students of naval
construction to believe, that that
weapon will be the ultimate arbiter
of future battles on the high seas, in
place of the big rifled guns, although
the problem of how to give the torpe
do battleship heavy enough armor to
withstand the 14-lnch guns of the
present day dreadnought remains to
be solved, as the projectile from this
weapon is capable of penetrating . the
armor of any battleship now afloat, at
any range at which the hulls of the
ships are visible, and a torpedo craft
has to come much closer than that to
get her work In. It may, however,
as this writer points out, be possible
to work up a system of heavy protec
tive decks, bow protection and water
line belting, so that the ship would
have a good fighting chance to run the
gauntlet of shell fire from a mod
ern dreadnought, ana draw near
enough to discharge her broadside of
21-inch, 40-knot torpedoes, before she
was sent to the bottom, as she ulti
mately would be.

Ship's Mothers for Canadian Steamers.
The two new steamers of the Royal
line of the Canadian Northern Rail
way system, are each to have a new
official, to be known as the 'ship's
Mother," whose duty Jt will be to look
after, befriend and advise the women
in the steerage. We must say, that
we fall to see the necessity of such,
and would be willing to wager quite a
small sum, that trouble will naturally
arise between a woman so employed
and the stewardesses of the ship. The
latter, who Is supposed to be care
fully selected, should be able to give
advice, and protection to girls and wo
men, traveling alone, against anoyance
or would-be attentive strangers. To in
stall a woman ln a ship in the capa
city indicated is almost sure to be in
terpreted as interference, or, implica
tion of inefficiency on the part of the
stewardesses, whose employment is
time honored. It may work out all
right, but we have our doubts.

Tolls and Tonage in the Suez Canal.
In the opening year of the Suez Ca
nal,-1870, the vessels that passed
through numbered 486, which had a
gross tonnage of 435,911 tons, while
the dues collected amounted to 6,169,
327 francs. Last year 4,533 vessels
utilized this waterway, with an aggre
gate gross tonnage of 23,054,901 tons,
yielding a return of 127,251,233 francs.
In the first year that the canal was
used, the rate was 10 francs per ton
on net tonnage. This wai reduced ln
1885 to 9 1-2 francs, ln 1893 to 9
francs, ln 1903 to 8 1-2 francs, in
1906 to 7 3-4 francs, and at the be
ginning of this year to 7 1-4 francs. In
1887, by a system of electric lights be
ing Installed the canal was opened for
the first time for use at night and
night passages through it total length
of 87 knots, or nautical miles, last
year occupied 16 hours and 42 minutes.
The aggregate British, German, French
and Dutch tonnage, using the canal
ln 1910, was 20,429,502 tons, of which
14,363,539tons were British, Germany
being second ana France tnira.
Glass Coating for Ships' Bottoms.
Experiments with a composition of
rosin and linseed oil have resutled in
overcoming the difficulty heretofore
experienced ln attaching glass to
ships' bottoms, which it is claimed
would secure a mreater speed and a
saving in coal consumption. Hitherto
it has always been found impracticable
to cover ships bottoms with glass, as
the expansion of the steel plates, even
through a very slight rise in tempera
ture, resulted in breaking the glaBS.
The new process has been purchased
by B. V. Low & Co., London, and it is
expected that a practical test will soon
be made on an ocean-going steamer. It
is claimed for the new process that
the cost will not exceed the coating
of a ship's bottom with two coats of

Floyd Leader of Fight
Against a New County
(Continued from First Page)
ingly foreign bearing were injected Into
the discussion, one be'ing the political
affiliations of the Pinellas people, as
between the Socialist, Democratic and
Republican parties; the race question
was alluded to by Mr. Tomlln, and he
asserted that one-third of the popula
tion of the Pinellas peninsula was col
ored. Mr. Somervllle, also from Hills
borough, spoke against the bilL Mr.
Gornto. of Lafayette, was the first
champion of the bill to speak. He ar
gued that the people of Pinellas, the
county to be, wanted the county dl
vlaed and that the rest of the county
was against it, and this issue was the
only issue necessary for a candidate to
be elected to the legislature from
Hillsborough. Mr. Bornto said the dl
vision of the county under the circum
stances as they had been presented
seemed only just and Democratic, and
the expression of brotherly love.
Mr. Floyd followed Mr. Gornto in an
hours' speech. Among other references
he made concerning the Confederate
flag incident was that the people of
Pinellas should secede under the
southern flag, If they wanted to secede.
and that they should do this and be
granted the right to do this If they
would, provided they named the new
county Jeff Davis. "Then they wouldn't
live ln it! And that s one way to set
tle the controversy."
Speaking further of the labor
troubles ln Tampa, and the leaving In
fluence of the country vote on the
county affairs, Mr. Floyd recited in a
comical manner some of the charac
teristics of the Italian and the Cuban,
and said: "He would rather be czar
of Russia than mayor of Tampa.' The
flag Incident ran like a thread through
the Floyd delivery, and true to his cus
tom ln speaking, leaving a subject
solitary In Its lonllness for a time but
eventually reverting to it, he vhouted
that these people of Pinellas, who had
not learnecLto respect the southern
flag, should te kept in their Baby
lonian captivity until they had learned
lo be careful to take their hats off to
the flag and more careful how they
took their hats off to mulatto women.
Mr. Reaves, of Manatee, spoke
against the bill. His main reason for
opposing the bill, he said, was the
fear that it would be unconstitutional;
the boundaries were indefinite, as
stated in the bill, and there would
undoubtedly be trouble ln determining
the jurisdiction of the courts in cer
tain cases where crimes were commit
ted on the boats plying in the waters
of Tampa bay; another objection was
the provision made that the bill should
become a law upon its ratification by
the people of the county which It waa
proposed to create.
Among those who spoke against the
postponement was Mr. Rogers, of Ma
rion, who distinguished himself yes
terday by casting the only vote against
the anti-race track bill.
The divlslonists were claiming at
least eight majority in the house, but
the vote to Indefinitely postpone did
not make such a strong showing. The
motion to postpone was lost by 28 to
36, but when it came to the vote on
the motion by Butler of Palm Beach to
waive the rules and put the measure
on its. final passage the roll call
showed 25 to 32. The bill was ordered

New York. May 4. The cotton market
opened barely steady at an advance of 2
points on the oia crops, dui generally o
to 7 points lower under Belling, inspired
by the more favorable showing of the
weather. Liverpool made a steady show
ing and the English spot sales continued
large, accounting for the relative firmness
of the near months early, but May and
July soon weakened witn new crop de
liveries, as some of the leading brokers
anneared to be selling, and the entire
niarket was nervous ana unsettled aner
the call, with active positions ruling about
8 to 13 points under tne closing ngures
nf last nlc-ht.
A rally of 3 or 4 points occurred during
the middle of the morning on realising by
recent short sellers and a little fresh buy
ing, but the official forecasts for generally
warmer weather in the south, while In
dicating unsettled conditions in parts of
the Western Deit, were conswerea ravor-
ahl. and the market aulckly eased off
again under a renewal of general selling
with si-lies at midday aoout to 10 points
net lower.
The market continued weak during tne
early afternoon, selling at a net decline
of about 17020 oolnts under further gen
eral llauldatlon and near pressure, dui
the break was checked around 15.16 for
Julv and by a renewal of support ana

New Orleans. May 4. Cotton futures
onened steady unchanged to 1 point up,
compared with yesterday s close, an tne
old crop months and 5 points off on the
new. uverpooi cables were ravoraoie ana
sales of 15.000 bales of spots attracted
much attention but the weather map oft
set this, as it noted practically no rain
in the cotton belt over night. The dry
weather eneouraa-ed shorts and they
sold the new croD . months heavily, and
the call the old cros were put 5 points
under yesterday's close and the new crops
were nut 11 to 12 under. Shorts took
prices at these lovels and at the end of
the first half-hour of business the list
stood at a net loss of 3 to 8 points.
The market waa unsettled throughout
the morning session. Prices had no de
cided tendency downward but were In
clined to react after every sag. This was
due to the forecast of unsettled weather
for Arkansas, Oklahoma and a part of
Texas. As the weather was generally
read, there seemed to be a chance's of
more stormy weather toward the end of
the week. This prevented general short
selling. Soon after the middle of the
morning the list stood within 4 to B points
of yesterday'a close on the more active
months, but later there waa another sag
and at noon the old crop months were 11
to 12 points down and the new crop were
16 to 10 down.
