I tanrj Tntored TdS"" ygi Ccprtltbt 190t Vr Ittrt Sh.Bn.i t Uut NEW IDEA IN BATTLESHIPS Will Ecllpse All Other Flghtlng Machlnes A Radlcal Departure In Respect to the Armament. Tho experts of the Unlted Statrs na-y are prcparing plans for a now battle shlp, whlcli when complcted, wlll ecllpso nny flghtlng mnchlne now tn exlstcnce. The battleshlp wlll ls from 18,000 to 20 000 gross tonnago. but the most rudlcal departure wlll bo In respect to armament. Instcnd or, ns now. armlng tho vcssel wlth a maln b.ittery of henvy guns nnd grad untlng the rest of her armament from slx-lnch ritles down to slx, threo and onc ound('rs In her second battery, the new shlp wlll carry only two' types of navnl ordnance. Her maln Imttery wlll consist of ten twelve-inch guns, the heavlest now ln uso In the Amerlcnn navy. placed In turrets nnd brnadsldes, nnd the sec ondary battery wlll be mnde up entlrely of nt least twenty or the new thrce-lnch qulck flrlng guns. Whlle the plans for the new nnd mns slvo shlp of wnr hnve not yet been com pleted. nnd wlll not for some tlme, nnd nlthough they can be consldored, nt best, In vlew of the oonstmcllon and othor problems lnvolved. only tontntive, tho groatest Interest surrounUs the com tcmplated new depnrturo ln battleshlp constructlon nnd nrmament arrnngement, and naval experts aro watchlng wlth con slderablo nnxlety the worklng out of the dlfHcult probloms whlch must be met nnd conqncred before the plans of such a flghtlng machlno ns thnt contcmplated can be put in shajw for authorization by Congrcss. It ls conccded that a battery or ten twelve-lnch guns would cnnstltutc tho most formldable tlontlng armament that at prvfcont cxlsts for long rnnge combat wllh vesscls of a simliar type, whlle tho socondary batter)' of three-lnch guns would. it ls believed, form the most for mldable lloatlng defence from torpedo or destroyer nttnck. ln fact, the nnvnl ex perts of tho Unlted States some tlmo ago brought the thrce-lnch gun to such n stnte of perfectlnn that It is now belng intmduced gencrally, rcplaclng the one. thiee. slx, twelvo nnd fourtecn-ioundcrs. whlch for some yenrs back have formed the secondary bnttcries of shlps of war. The three-lnch guns can be flred as rapldly as the guns of smaller callbre, has n mUch wlder rnnge, nnd can, of course, do much moro ertectlvo work. The de velopment or thls rllle, it may be sald, has kept paco wlth the extenslon ot the range or the submarine torpedo. Some years ngo. owlng to the Ilmlted rnngo or tho torpedo, slx nnd twolve-pounders were consldercd ndequate for the purpose of repellln.g nttncks by thls mcans. When, however, tho submarlno englne of de structlon was brought to such n ntage or practical cillclency. wlth wlder range and greater nccuracy or control, it was found that a new wcapon ot defence was absolutely necessary, and ns n result of the work of the ordnnnce experts the thrce-lnch gun, consldercd tho best of Its type now In uso by nny natlon, was In vented. The ndvantage from almost every polnt or vlew of having a battleshlp In whoso armament thero are only two callbres ls, of course, recognlzed by naval experts. It Is tmo that In order to construct n shlp of the tonnage and beam requlred to cnrry the Increased welght of heavy guns contemplated for the new battleshlp, somo sacrlflco must be mado In other dlrectlons. It ls probahle that the speed of such a shlp could not excced stxtecn knots, but, ns a vcssel of thls class would Imj bullt "to flght nnd not run nway," as n hlgh ofllclnl or tho navy put It reccntly, thls sncrlflce would not bo consldercd a draw back. The Amcrlcan navy ls nt present com poscd or vessels, the majorlty or whlch can 1m separated Into homogeneous groups. Thero aro about hnir n dozen battlcshlps of reccnt type whlch nre cs sentlally homogeneous, tlvo new crulsers whlch can also be so classed, and tho somewhat less modern shlps can also bo dlvlded Into other groups of flghtlng unlts. For future shlps, however, tho experts are conslderlng three types only the bat tleshlp, the nrmored crulscr and tho destroyer. They thlnk thnt a navy com posed or merely these three types or ves sels wlth tho posslble nddltlon or the submarine, whlch Is consldered yet In tho exporlmental stagc,, would be more effl clent than a navy mado up of all the dlfferent prevnlllng types. It Is very lm probnblo, thercfore, that the constructlon of any moro crulsers of the type of tho Charleston, Mllwaukee, Columbla, Mln neapolls, Olympla, Chlcago, Newark, and San Franclsco wlll bo recommended. Tho protected crulser ls at present practlcally dlscredlted, largcly through the results of aea flghts whlch havo occurred durlng the present confilct ln tho Far East. Letter to C. D.

Along toward autumn he Intended to land at some reputcd places near Dlnkcy Creek. There mlght be somo thlng ln that dlstrict. He thought he would take a look. In the meantlme he was Just poklng up through the country he nnd hls Jackasscs. Good way to spend tho summer. Pcrhaps he mlght run ncross somethlng 'most anywhcre;up near tho top of the mountaln opposlte looked mlncrallzcd. Dldn't know but what he'd tako n look at her to-morrow. He cnmped nenr us durlng tho three days. I never saw n more modest, self crnclng man. He seemed genulnely, chlld Ishly. nlmost help.essly lntercsted in our fly flshlng. shooting, our bearsklns, and our travels. You would havo thought from hls d"mennor whlch was slncere and not in the lenst lronlcal that he had never seen or heard anythlng qulte llko thnt before. nnd was struck wlth wonder at lt. Yet he had east llles before we wero born. and shot even earller than ho hnd c-jst a fly, and was a very Ishmael for trnvel. Rnrely coidd you get nn nc count of hls own experlences, nnd then only In lllustrntlon of somcthlng else. Mf you-all llkes bear-huntlng," sald he, "you ought to get up In eastern Oregon. I summcred there onco. The only troubl-i Is, the brush Is thlck ns halr. You "most always have to balt them, or wait for them to.come and drlnk. The bruyh is so small you ain't got much chance. I run onto a she-l.onr and cubs that way once Dldn't have nothlng but my slx-shooter, and I mct her wlthln slx foot." He stop;ied wlth nn alr or flnallty. "Well, what dld you do?" we asked. Me?" he Inqulred. suprlsed. 'Oh, I Just leakcd out of the landscape." He prospected the mountnin mmltn , loafed wlth us a little, nnd then declded I thnt he must be golng. About eight o'clock in the morning he passed us, haz- inB in uurros. nis inu, lean Ilgurc elastlc In deflance of years. "So long, boys." he called; "good luck!" "So long." we responded, hoartlly. Be good to yourself." He plungcd Into the rlver wlthout hesl tatlon, emcrged drlpplng on the other slde, and dlsappeared ln the brush.
