THE MOST FAMOUS BATTLE-SMI
On March 19, 1898, the United
States battle-ship Oregon left San
Francisco for her long run eastward
around South America. The per
formance was watched by tho whole
people, the chance of attack by the
Spanish fleet, whose whereabouts at
sea were unknown, giving the long
voyage a sensational aspect, ine
Oregon reached the Florida coast
May 24th. Though she had run 14,
000 knots she was reported ready for
duty and at once steamed to her
place In the Cuban fleet. Foity days
later ehe took a leading part in the
battle with Cervera's ship. It was
her speed and heavy guns that pic
vented tho escape of the Colon,
which had outstripped the other
Spanish vessels. If tho Colon had
run the gauntlet successfully the vic
tory would have been seriously in
complete and tho war prolonged, for
it was the utter obliteration of their
fquadron that completed tho dis
couragement and disgust of the
On March 18, 1899, just one year,
less a day, after her departure from
Sau Francisco, tho Oregon steamed
into the bay of Manila and Dewey
cabled that she was fit for any duty.
Again she had steamed around South
America, and, in addition, bad
crossed the Pacific. Tho voyage of
20,000 knots fiom New York to
Manila was not a race against time,
but was completed between October
12th and March 18lh. The spend of
the Oregon is no less remaikable
than her mechanical perfection. A
year ago she ran the 4070 knots
between San Francisco and Callao in
fifteen and a half days, an avecpge of
203 knots a day. The final run of
over 5000 knots from Honolulu to
Manila was made in twenty-six days.
No battle-ship in existence has a
record approaching this. The Ore
gon was built by American me
chanics in San Francisco, which less
than sixty years ago was a foreign
village of 500 inhabitants. Half a
century of American expansion there
has produced a splendid metropolis
and one capable of constructing tho
greatest battle ship in all history.
From the army recruiting stations
all over the country cornea the report
of an eagerness to enlist, especially
on the part of the former volunteers.
The large majority of recruits desire

Foreign service, with Its discomforts,
risks and promise of activity in the
field, is attractive, while home duty,
with its relative ease and and immu
nity from danger, is distasteful; and
there is n pronounced desire to evade
it. This proves that the martial
spirit still prevails among the youth
of the country. While the array re
organization bill was before the sen
ate, it will bo remembered, there was
a prolonged debate as so whether the
provisions of tho bill gave the presi
dent tho power of conscription. This
rush of recruits is in evidence that
the time used in debating this ques
tion was wasted, since it shows that
conscription is afar off, if, indeed, un
der any circumstances it will ever
again become necessary. Oregonian.

From Hood Ktver to Cloud Cap Inn.
Every visitor to Cloud Cap Inn, on
Alt. Hood, is wont to pass the remark,
"Oh, if only the dusty ride betweeu
Hood River and the iun could be avoided
what an advantage it would be." al
though, we venture to say that not one
who has ever made the trip would hesi
tate to traverse the same road, with its
disadvantages, for the grandeur of view
and the pleasure which awaits them
when the goal is reached.
If reports are true this difficulty will

seems almost too good to he true, so we
"tell the tale as 'twas told to us,"
not daring to vouch for its truth. It
would seem more likely were it to be
built from Portland to the mountain, as
the travel would be more liable to justi
fy such a move, although there are many
passengers over . the stage route every
day during the summer.
The great drawback to Oregon scenery
has always been our lack of facilities to
bring tourists in proximity with our

"Tonnage" and "Displacement."
At the present time, when naval mat
ters are a source of great interest to
the general public, ore continually
finds the terms "displacement" and
"tonnage" improperly used, both In the
daily press and in common speech. The
confusion between the terms would not
occur if their meaning were understood.
"Displacement" refers to the quantity
of liquid displaced by the immersed
hull of the ship, and "tonnage" to the
freight-carrying capacity of the ship
determined by certain rules of measure
ment. The displacement of a vessel is the
entire weight of the hull with all its
contents, according to the well-known
law of hydrostatics that a floating body
displaces a weight of fluid just eqtml to
its own weight. A ship sinks in the
water to such level that the pressure
of the fluid displaced exactly counter
balances the weight of the ship. -Engineering
