HAS AN IMMENSE DRAFT
Draws Over Thirty-two feet and
Will Carry Six Hundred Men
Few people, if any, realize the true
size of a full-fledged American battle-
hip. The common error Is to think
them smaller than they really are, and
even those who have some concc-Mlnn
of their size fall far short of the cor

As she steamed over her course on
her trial and came back for finishing
touches at Cramps' with the victorious
17.2 painted in broad white figures upon
her black smokestacks the newest and
the greatest warship, the Alabama, be
came the fastest battleship afloat in the
American navy, if not In the world.
"She is a little beauty," excialmed
her prospective captain, and his words
and thoughts were echoed by the sail
ors who stood by his side and the work
men watching her sail away and who
had tolled day by day that she might
No one thought how incongruous
were the diminutive pet names they
bestowed upon her. But incongruous
they were when the fact is taken Into
consideration that the vessel which
they talked of as if she were a toy
boat capable of being tucked under the
arm, was in reality 8 feet high from
conning tower to keel.
The Alabama, in fact, Ib as large
as a good slz3d modern office building
and the crew and offlcers who will some
day sle:p, eat, drink and have their
being beneath her broad decks will
number more than those who make an
office building their home during the
The Alabama may be compared to
one of the big office buildings In Phil
adelphianamely the Bourse. That
great emporium Is' not a recent building
entirely and should therefore be famll-1
lar to alL No one would be tempted,
standing on the pavement of the
Bourse on looking up like a pigmy at
its giant roof, to call it, as the embryo
captain of the Alabama did. "a little
The Bourse is about 100 feet high.
The battleship Is 86. The Bourse la 350
feet long and the battleship 370. The
Bourse cost 3625,000 to build and the
battleship $3,500,000 exclusive of arma
ment. The Bourse houses 400 men all
day long and the battleship 600 men
day and night A thousand men com
pleted the building In two years, but
two thousand men have been working
on the ship for two years and she Is
not yet done.
In the Bourse there are one or two
engines which are capable of doing all
the work of the building, but In the
battleship the engines are numbered by
the fifties and the hundreds.
All day long they grind away light
ing the Innermost parts of the ship,
pumping fresh air Into passages where
fresh air would not otherwise go. Pow
erful engines drive this living busy
hive from place to place wherever the
honeyed conversation of Uncle Sam's
booming war guns might be found necessary.
Within a given space In the Alabama
there is more going on than within
similar space In any office building In
the world. Yet not once has there ever
been a complaint that the situation was
Down near the keel, thirty feet under
the surface of the water, men are Bhov
ellng coal and running engines. Right
above them another gang are storing
away cans of powder or piling shot and
shell away In the racks.
Still further up, In another part of
the ship away from the noise and whir
of the engines, men are sleeping and
waiting their turn at watch.
A city by Itself where there la no dis
tinction between night and day that Is
what life on a battleship means. A
never sloping city run In the perfec
tion of order and discipline where every
man has his place and his appointed
duties that is what a battlVahlp Is.
