CAPT. MAHAN ON THE ARMADA.
The Great Naval Tactician Discusses
the Cause of the Disaster.
Capt. Alfred T. Mahan contributes
to the Century an article on "The Span
ish Armada," Introductory to a longer
paper on the same subject by William
Frederick Tilton, Capt. Mahan says,
among other things:
The Armada entered the English
Channel on July 30, and on the 6th
of August anchored off Calais, having
traversed the Channel successfully in
a week. Three several actions had oc
curred. None was decisive; but all
tended generally in favor of the En
glish, who utilized their advantages of
speed and artillery to hammer the foe
with their long guns, while keeping out
of range of his muskets and lighter
cannon. The Spanish losses In battle,
by a Spanish authority, were six hun
dred killed and eight hundred wound
ed. The English loss, from first to
last, did not reach one hundred. Such
a discrepancy tells its own tale; but it
is to be remembered, moreover, that
men slain means sides pierced and
frames shattered. Shot that fly wide,
or that cut spars, sails, and rigging,
kill comparatively few. With hulls
thus damaged, the Spaniards had to
confront the equinoctial gales of the
At Calais, a friendly town, Parma
might possibly join; but there was no
harbor for big ships, and it was un
reasonable to expect that he, with the
whole charge of the Netherlands on
his hands, would be waiting there, ig
norant when the fleet would appear. or
whether it would come at all. Medina
Sidonia sent him word of his arrival;
but it could not be hoped that the En
glish would allow the'fleet to occupy
that unprotected position undisturbed.
The wind being to the westward, they
anchored at a safe distance to wind
ward, and on the night of August 7
sent against the Spaniards eight fire
ships. The ordinary means of divert
ing these falling, the Spanish admiral
got under way. In this operation the
fleet drifted nearer the shore, and the
wind next day coming out strong from
the northwest and setting the ships
bodily on the coast, he, under the ad
vice of the pilots, stood into the North
Sea. Had Flpshing been in their pos
session, it might, with good pilots, have
afforded a refuge; but it was held by
tue Dutch. The enemy's ships, more
weatherly, drew up and engaged again;
while the continuance of the wind, and
the clumsiness of the Spaniards, threat
ened destruction upon the shoals off
the Flemish coast. The sudden shifting
of the wind to the south saved them
when already in only six or seven fath
oms of water. Here, again, was no
bad luck; nor could it be considered a
misfortune that the southerly breeze,
bwhleh carried them to the Pentland
Frith, changed to the northeast as they
passed the Orkneys and entered the
Atlantic, being thus fair for their honie
The dioasters of the Armada were
doe to the following causes: 1. The
failure to prescribe the effectual crip
pling of the English navy an a condi
tion precedent to any attempt at inva
sion. 2. The nteglect to secure before
hand a suitable point for making the
Innction with the army. Combinations
thus Intrupted to chance have no right
to expbct success. 3. The several ac
tions with the English failed because
the ships, which could exert their pow
er only close to the enemy, were neither
po fast lor so handy as the latter. Only
those who have the advantage of range
can afford inferiority of speed. 4. The
dis;sters in the Atlantic were du~
either to original unseaworthlness, or
to damage received in action, or to bad
fjudgment in talking unweatherly ships
toe tlose tb the shores of Ireland,
where strong westerly gales prevailed,
and the toast, was inhospitable.

The force of American demand is be
mg once more exemplified in London
by the placing at all important rail
road stations of chairs in connection
with the bootblack brigade. This work
is undertaken by the Central Shoe
black Society. There is already such
accommodation provided at Viaduct
station. It appears that American
gentlemen visiting London express
surprise that they are expected to
stand while they have their boots
blacked, as they are accustomed to sit
during the operation at home.
The society has sixty boys, who are
lodged, taught and partially boarded
on the premises of the institution, and
there is an ingenious allotment of their
earnings into three parts after an al
lowance for food required out of doors,
one-third being their own, another
third the society's and the remaining
third going to their bank account, on
which they can draw for special pur

SDa.8 Mai. Pnxax:-I propped myself in a chair and .
wrote to you, and as soon as I commenced to take your Vege

severe pains ih my hips, back and head. The doctor said I
had bladder trouble and falling of the womb. I had spells . .

Your Compound is a miracle. Before writing to you
I had tried doctor's medicine, but of no avail. I
would not give up your Compound for female com
