ADMIRAL -WATSON ' ILL," ,
An Accident to the Launch of Bit
Flagship Producea Heart Trouble,
WASHINGTON. Ang. 24.-Th. Army
and Navy Register says:
Recent letters from Manila mention
the Illness of Admiral Watson as the
source of great anxiety to hit offloera.
The Illness Is an effect of an accideift
which occured to his' launch while he
was on board on the 11th ot July. The
Baltimore, his flagship, has been for
some time at Cavlte, leaving Manila so
ss to escaiHS the full force of the ty
phoons. Requiring to make a trip up
the river, the admiral started in his
launch. A strong wind was blowing
and as the launch, the Undine, went
under the bridge over the river, known
as the brlige of Spain, the strong cur
rent, aided by the wind, set against
the little boat and she was taken ou
of her course and thrown against a
hawser from a sailing vessel. This
rope carried away the awning and,
striking the smokestack took that also.
Admiral Watson, sitting In the for
ward part of the launch, and witness
ing the full danger of the accident
showed no sonscloua appearance of
having been startled excessively by
the occurence or In any way of having
suffered by It. Later, however, In fact
before his return to the flagship, ser
ious heart trouble developed and In
consequence he was regarded as ex
tremely 111 up to the dute of the let
ters of the 17th. No one but his phy
sician Is allowed access to him and all
business of the fleet Is forbidden.

LONDON, Aug, M.-Though no ac
tual developments apparently baa tak
en place In tbe Transvaal situation,
public interest In the crisis bat wonder
fully quickened. This It due to a
dawning realization that Great Brit-
Ian It making the most methodical
preparations for war. The utter lack
of official news and the serious out
look bive made a week of tension. Con
tradictory reports from home and.
abroad have flourished.
An endless supposition has been In
dulged In regarding President Krug-
er's counter propositions, but from a
broad point of view, such details are
not Important, at compared with tbe
fact that Kruger baa refuted, some
say evaded, the "irreduceable mini
mum" of Sir Alfred Ullner, British
high commissioner of South Africa. It
Is nearly a week since the British gov
ernment hat been in possession of
Kruger't reply. Whether, In the In
terests of peace, the powers higher
than the secretary of state for the col
onies are still temporising, or whether
a decisive ultimatum Is already on tbe
way to the president of the Transvaal,
is pure conjecture.

New Improvements Will Make Her
Greatest Ship Afloat.
NEWPORT NEWS. Aug. t.-The
trial trip of tbe battleship Keartarge
will take place between September 5
and LV Tbe ship It now within about
four per cent of completion and is auf
fldently advanced to warrant the
statement that she will be sent away
frim the ship yard on ber first trial
trip, the early part of next month.
Reports have been tent out from
Washington to :he effect that owing
to the delay caused oy a shortage of
men during the yellow fever scare the
Kearsarge could not go out unUl the
latter part of October and the' Ken
tucky not until December, but these
bad no foundation.
Tbe trial trip of the Kearsarge. to
being looked forward to with great deal
of Interest She w 111 be the first war
ship ever built embodying the super
oolsed turret Idea, that Is with the
eight Inch turrets over the thirteen
Inch turrets, enabling the ship, as well
as the Kentucky, to concentrate on
one oolnt a far heavier Are In less
time then any other ship afloat. Cap
tain William Folgjr, who will com
mand the Kearsarge, has been here
for some time superintending the work
on th. vessel and he will go out on
her when the trial trip between the
ship yard and the Atlantic ocean takes
place. ' " ' ' ' -
Captain Folgjr 'is one of the high
authorities In the navy on ordnance
and his opinion of the success of the
superpotsed turret idea after the trial,
will be worth something.
The Kearsarge has Just received a
coat of white paint which th. will
x-ear on her trial trip.
The speep of the Kersarge will also
be watched with Interest by naal
men. "he contract speed Is only 16
knots.', but the Newport News Ship
building Dry Dock Company has
thus far managed to exceed contract
speed in all of Its merchant and gov
ernment contracts, and It Is believed
the Kersarge and the Kentucky will
not 'be exceptions.
The thfje little gunboats, the Nash
ville., tho Helena and the Wilmington,
the best and speediest boats of their
class In the world, all far exceeded the
contract speed. If the Kearearg makes
tn the neighborhood of 17 knots an
hour on her official trial, many naval
men will not be surprised.
