Since the Spanish-American war this
country affordp splendid facilities for naval
study. It was the first real test of modern
fighting vessels and naval silence must
draw itB conclusions largely from what the
American navy accomplished during the
war v ith Spain. 1 think it Is universally
conceded In Europe that the American navy
made a Epleudid record not only in a gen
eral way , but In technical matters of utval
dota.l. It demonstrated the effectiveness of
the rapid fire pun Of medium ccllbcr rather
than the larger guns. It also seemed to
bhow that the power of a nnvy Is more in
Its weapons of attack and offence , ItB capa

I growing power of the American navy even
before the recent war Our chief naval
I constructor , M. Bertin. cam to this country

dock yards , arsenals , etc. On his return he
made an official report shoving the great itn-
! propments tie American naval constructors
I had brought nhnut. particularly in the ar-
i ranceinent of bulkheads und in the distribu-
1 tion of armor sn as to protect vital points.
AVe iiiso knev your American armor and

vhich has been entirely satisfactory so far. "

Lieutenant De Parumoud says foreign
! naval observers are not only interested in
. - but are also obsen-
j the results of the v.-ar ,
j lug the large amount of naval construction
now in progress in the United States , and
I th naval improvement it involves. From
Italian naval statistics "he " hews that the
United States is today reckoned second
among the great powers in point of war-
1 ships unde ; construction. This tonnage l > .v
countries IB ae follows : Greet Britain ,
132,322 toni. United States. 56,445 : Japan ,

"An interesting line of inquiry , " said
Lieutenant He aramond. "js why 5 J lire
building so many heavy sTUps , ironclads aK
we call them , as against the lighter , swifter
cruisers The ironclad if essentially a
home ship , and is not fitted , owing to its
bulV and lack of coal capacity , for crossing
the ocean or for long crumeE. The French
navy .has in commission fifteen ironclads on
the Mediterranean and eight in the north
ern squadron. But these are purely defense
vessolc. and never leave tlie home ports.
The performance of your battleship Oregon
in running 13.000 miles around South
America , was remarkable for that reason ,
and itB present trip across the Pacific ifc
equally remarkable. But judged by the
usual naval stanQRrdB an armored cruiser
would have been much better equipped for
these long voyages It has the Kpned , the
coal , and at the same time sufficient armor
to make its defensive powers almost equal
to those of the ironclad "
