given yesterday evening at the Royal
Palace to "Vice-Admiral Sir Harry Bolds
worth Kawson, and the officers of the
British fleet now in the River Tagus.
and by the telegram which the King
afterwards dispatched to Queen Victoria,
-thanking Her Majesty for sending the
fleet, and for the friendship thus demon
strated. "I beg to record." telegraphed the King,
"my great satisfaction at the frank and
loyal alliance uniting England and Portu
gal." In the course of his speech, when he
toasted Queen Victoria, the King said
among other things:
"England "has often shared the efforts
and glories of Portugal. Our mutual
friendship and close alliance are strength
ened by history and the blood shed to
gether In causes which, have always been
Admiral Rawson replied that the words
of the King harmonized with the
thoughts of the government and people
of Great Britain.

that it was comparatively easy for irre
sponsible deputies to glvo expression to
certain popular currents of opinion, but a
man occupying the responsible position of
.Chancellor of the German Empire, who
was answerable, not only for the peace
of Germany, but also, under certain cir
cumstances, for the peace of the whole
world, would not allow himself to be in
terfered with by such people and senti
mental waves of opinion. For him there
was but one course to preserve the peace,
safety, welfare and Interests of the fath
The Berlin press continues to disapprove
fctrongly of Emperor William's refusal to
receive Mr. Kruger. Even the Berliner
Tageblatt regrets the "loss to Germany's
prestige" and calls the Kaiser's refusal
a "grave political mistake."

Cexmany doing England this favor than
political prepayments made by England."

Report of the Commission Sent to
WASHINGTON, Dec 7. The complete,
report of the Deep Waterways Commis
sion was sent to the House of Repre
sentatives today by Secretary Root. The
project is one for a deep-waterway be
tween the Great Lakes and Atlantic tide
water. The estimated coat of a 21-foot
waterway Is given at $206,358,000, and of a,
30-foot waterway at $314,284,500. An ad
ditional estimate is made for deepening
the harbors of Chicago and Duluth,
making the total for the 30-foot channel
of $326,892,000. The cost of annual main
tenance of the 21-foot waterways Is giv
en at $2,843,478, and of the 30-foot water
way, $2,930,303. The most favorable route,
the commission states, for a 30-foot water
way from the lakes to the sea Is "from
Lake Erie to Lake Ontario, via LaSalle
and Lewlston and from Lake Ontario to
the Hudson River via Oswego and the
Mohawk Valley, and that the same route'
is practically favorable as any for the
21-foot waterway." It also Is pointed out
by the commission that this route Is
entirely in our own country. The report
is signed by Lieutenant-Colonel Raymond
and Alfred Noble and George T. Wlsner,
constituting the commission.

The sheathed vessels are to be of 15,00t
tons displacement, with a length of 435
feet, breadth of 76 feet 10 Inches and.
greatest draft ot 2S feet. The unsheathed
shipe are slightly smaller, and on the

400 tons less dlsplacementi 'Both classes

will oe maintained bytwln-screw engines
of 19.000 horse-power, supplied by 24 water-tube
The radical difference in the battle-ships
to tho outward appearance will lie in the
turrets. Each ship will carry four 32-lnch
guns. These are of the extraordinary
length of 40 calibers, or 20 feet In the bore,
of the new type JUst turned out by the
ordnance bureau, and superior in efficien
cy to any 32-lnch gun In the world, and
at 'least eaual to the 18-lnch-guns which
have marked the maxlmum'callber of the J
American Navr. In the three sheathed
vessels, a pair of eight-inch guns will be 1
mounted on the top of each of the 32-lnch
turrets. Four other eight-inch guns will
be 'distributed in two turrets araldshlp3
on these vessels.
The unsheathed vessels will have all of
their eight eight-Inch guns mounted In
four independent turrets, one placed at 1
each end of the oblong superstructure.
Both classes of vessels, sheathed and un
sheathed, will have a broadside of 12 six
Inch rapid-firing uns on the main deck,
besides 12 14-pounders and 12 two-poUnd-ers
and a number of automatic guns,
making the battery more formidable than
any afloat as far as. ability to concentrate
fire and .throw weight of metal i3 con

battle-shlpa of both classes are unsur
passed, carrying an eight-foot wide water-
line belt of armor, 11 inches thick over J
the vitals of the ship, tapering to four
inches at the ends. The six-Inch guns
will be placed behind the protection of
six Inches of hardened Bteel, and the tur
rets will vary from 10 to 11 Inches In
thickness. A curved turtle-back protec
tive deck" and a coffer-dam belt all around
the water line stuffe'd with cellulose will
afford further protection. Electricity will

Of a less displacement than the battle
ships, 13,800 tons in the case of the
sheathed, and 13,400. in the case of the un
