THE SHIP'S POWERFUL AKMAMEXT
She Is the Strongest War Vessel
Ever Constructed by the Amer
Washington, April !. The Indiana
will participate with a host of others,
new and old, in the naval review in New
York harbor on the 27th inst.
The Indiana is the eighth warship
that the Cramps have launched aiul is
the larpest ever sent from their ways.
I Tp to this time the New York, with a
tonnafr-j of S.OOQ, was the larpest. The
Indiana is the first of the first-class bat
tleships to be launched, and her sister
ship, the Massachusetts, which is from
nix weeks to two months behind the In
iliana in construction, will be Uie uext.
The Indiana is 343 feet long on the
water line and is 59 feet 8 inchcu beam.
Her displacement is 10.400 tons, but
with a full supply of coal and stores on
board she will draw 24 feet and dis
place 11.600 tons of water. She will be
propelled by twin screws and her en
gines will be three in numln-r. havinp
10.000-horse power. They will be of
the triple-expansion type and will be
built abreast in watcr-tipht compart
ments, and will pive a speed of from
15S' to 10 knots, the guaranteed soeed
being 15 knots. The armor will e as
nearly impervious to shot as it can
be made. The water-line armor belt
will be of lS-ineh nickel steel and will
extend 1WJ feet along each side amid
ships. At the ends of the armor belt is
an armored bulkhead athwartships
which is to be 14 inches thick, and
above (hat and the water line is to be a
casemate belt 5 inches thick.
Above the athwartships belt will be
two redoubts one at each end, forming
the basis of the revolving turrets.
These redoubts will be S4 feet and 0
inches outside diameter and 12 feet
high. Over the armor belt and over the
bow and stern will be a flat protected
deck plated with 2-inch steel. At each
of the four corners of the 5-inch case
mates rises up a redoubt s feet high
and plated with 8-inch steel. The.c
redoubts will be surmounted by turrets,
each 8 inches thick, and besides the
armored turrets there is to be an ar
mored pilot house or conning tower.
The total weight of the armor is to be
2,CSj t ins.
The armament of the Indiana will be
as follows: Four l"-inoh puns 40 feet
long, mounted in pairs in the two main
turrets: ei?ht 8-inch guns, mounted in
pairs in the four turrets at the comers
of the casemate: four 6-inch guns.

Hon. P. R. Thompson, uduister to
Turkey, met with quite a paiuful acci
dent ou March 14. He slipped on a
marble staircase and fell, upraising his
elbow, knocking out three, teetli and
rutting his lips and tongue. When he
wrote, he had a sore elbow and mouth,
but expected to be all right in a few
days, home of Mr. Thompson's friends
are wondering w hat kiud of a stick of
timber they put In the lemonades in
Turkey, but this probably has nothing
to do with the ease. Walking on Per
sian carpets and Piighiotan rugs has
made his shoes unusually slick, and this
caused the accident. Colonel Koliert
Miller, who has not dwelt in marble halls
or trotted up and down marble staircases
much, will do well to take a few weeks
practice before leaving for Turkey by
taking a room in the ninth story of the
Okkmokiam building and eschewing the
use of the elevator. If this is not
convenient, hobnail in ids shoes may
save his life.

Armour for th Onion,
Bethlehem, Pa., March 19. The ship
ment of eight tons of armor, forming the
diagonal plates of the battle-HhipOregon,
left the Bethlehem iron works yesterday
for the Union iron works, of San Fran
cisco, where the Oregon is now building.
THE BATTLE SntP IOlAXA.
mounted in broadsides with special
inter bulkheads back of them; twenty
6-pounders and rapid-firing guns: eight
1-pounders and (iatling guns and 6 tor
pedo tulies. The armament has some
strong points possessed by none of the
battleships or cruisers now afloat. ne
is the height of the puns from the water
line, which will enable them to success
fully attack the unarmored ends of for
eign warships. The 13-inch puns are
IH feet above water line and the 8-inch
puns are 28 feet above the water line.
Another feature is that the armament
of either the Indiana or Massachusetts
will throw a greater weight of metal
than any vessel afloat. Either will be
able to throw 6,400 pounds at one dis
charge of her main battery alone, which
is l.ooQ pounds more than any other
warship, foreign or native, is capable of
discharging. There will be a single
military mast, with two fighting tops
and a lookout, and means will be pro
vided for going up inside the mast.
The Indiana is one of three sister
ships, including the Massachusetts and
the Oregon, authorized by act of con
press of June 30. WJ0. The general de
signs for the three steel ships were
ready on the day the act authorizing
them was approved. Three months
later the bids for constructing them
were opened. The I'nion iron works
of Hnn Francisco offered to build one
for t",.': 10,000, or two for fi,400,000; the
Risdon irira and locomotive works, also
of San Francisco, one for f3,275.0UO; the
Bath iron works, one for (3,149,000; tiie
Cramp & Sons company, of I'hiladel
phia. one for (2,VJ0,OO0, and the other
two for tt.7S0.00O. The latter company
also bid (3,120,000 for a ship twelve feet
longer than in the department's plans,
which were followed exactly by all the
preceding bids, and (0.040,000 hrr the
other two. This last bid being lower
than that of any other, was accepted
for the Indiana and Massachusetts.
The law required that one of the ves
sels should be built on or near the Pa
cific coast, if it could be done at a fair
cotst. The I'nion iron works, in view of
the bid of the Cramps, agreed to build
the Oregon, also adding twelve feet, for
rUW.OOO, and this was accepted as
reasonable on calculating the cost of
carrying to San Francisco material only
obtainable in the east. The Indiana's
