-Mtrtf)ite "board of naval construc
tion will take up for consideration the
subject of Increasing the number of
submarine torpado boats. There is like- j
1)1 to be a dhi'sion of opinion on the
matter. ,It 1 said that Hear Admiral
OINelLchlef o'f ordnance, and Chief .
Constructor llichborn arc in favor of
I building more boats of that type,
while Itear Admiral Melville, engineer
I in chief, and Chief of the Equipment
I Bureau Bradford are not disposed to
' favor the idea. Secretary Long will
piooaoiy oe guiueu largely uy tne ad
vice of his experts in making recom
mendations to congress on the sub
ject. There axe. some flattering reports
relating to the Holland, which is be
ginning to see practical service. The
boat, naval officers say, has contrib
uted a new and menacing element to
naval operations and has presented
new problems which must be met.
Capt. Folger. commanding the Kear
sarge, already anticipated this when
he suggested a provision of light tor
pedo boats to guard against the in
vasion by submarine boat.
It has evidently become necessary,
say the naval strategists, to add small
picket boats to the cargo of a big
ship iu order to offset the effect of the
submarine boat. The seven boats of
the latter type now under contract
will provide a liberal strength in this
respect, but some of tho naval officers
believe we should continue the work.
Other believe we should await the
result of ths trials of the boats now
under contract and take advantage of
any improvements which may be sug
gested. YIELD HEAVY TAX.

A' large Auchora eat, belonging to
Dr. J. Hammond Bradshaw, of Orange,
N. J., killed a snake the other after
noon that measured five inches around
the body and was three feet two and
a half inches long. The combat was
witnessed by Mrs. Margaret Haugh
Wout, Dr. Bradshaw's sister-in-law.
Mrs. Haughwoul says that the cat
crouched and sprang upon the snake,
which was coiled in the roadway in
front of Dr. Bradshaw'e residence.
The cat bit the snake in the back and
jumped away before the snake could
strike. At this point Mrs. Haugh
wout stepped in and picked the cat
up, thinking it would be hurt. The
cat resisted, and Mrs. Haughwout de
cided to let him go again. The cat
then made another attack upon the
serpent, which succeeded in coiling
itself about its antagonist's neck.
Tom was nearly strangled, but man
aged to seize the snake by the neck
and succeeded in killing it in a few
minutes. The snake was said to be
of the. variety known dm tho house
