Caught 1b the act of plundering the

' The police were apprised of the affair,
and officers were sent to Investigate.

An Italian lad called at the Hammond

chase a stick of dynamite. Fearing
that ha waa the representative of a
secret society or that aome person with
bad motives had sent him for the ex

headquarters and caused his arrest.
To Captain Orltstnacher1 the boy gave
the name of Charlea Head, which waa
undoubtedly fictitious, as be waa plain

waa very Improbable. Aa there waa no

Newport News, Va., Aug. (7. In the
presence of 20,000 persons the battle
ship Louisiana waa launched today by
the Newport News Shipbuilding com
pany. In addition to the official party
from New Orleans tru-re were present
delegations of naval officers from Wash
ington. Philadelphia and New York and
visitors from numerous other points.
The ship went down the ways st 10:07
o'clock without a hitch.
The naming party were escorted to
the platform by C. B. m ml. president
of the shipbuilding company. The
sponsor. Miss Juanlta Lalland of New
Orleans, waa attended by several young
ladles aa maids of honor. Oovernoi
W. W. Heard and other official represen

As soon as the ceremonies were ovet
President Orcutt conducted the guests,

Description of Louisiana.
The Louisiana and her sister phlp.
the Connecticut which Is to be launched
at the New York navy yard a few weeks
hence, are counted upon to be the most
powerful fighting machines of the new
American navy. They will usher in one
Important Innovation, Inasmuch aa their
batteries will .contain 7-Inch guns In
place of the COach rapld-firers which
hare prevailed since the vessels of the
Ken marge-Kentucky type) were planned
It la doubtful whether any ship afloat
will rr.-itch the Loulalana in armament.
In addition to four 12 -Inch guns. In fore
and aft turrets, she will have eight 8
inch rifles. In the main battery these
will be supplemented by 12 7-Inch rifles,
each throwing a projectile weighing 1(5
The II inch guns carry a shell weigh

The 7 -lnci sheila have a Bursting charge
of it pounds of black powder. The ex-
shed saw be replaced by an
Mr. Lowlt. The latter took the lighted
lamp from his sleeping apartment and
went out into the hallway to Investigate.
He aet it down on a table and looked
around. There In the door stood Mr.
Burglar. Ha was directly under the
rack that held aome clothing, and whan
he saw ha waa confronted by a man who
meant to take drastic action, he ahowed
hla daring by Jerking the rack from the
wall and throwing it into the street,
the evident purpose being to take aome
of the clothea with him in the hope of
Mr. Lowlt then got buay and tried to
catch the burglar, but the latter darted
through the front door. Taking the next
beat method of "getting even." the man
of the house began kicking; the fleeing
prowler in no gentle manner. Thua did
he put the bold burglar to flight, ad
ding another brilliant chapter to Port
land's history of bravery.
that hla mother Uvea on Portland
Heights, and that hla father la In Italy.
He explained hla desire to purchase the
dynamite by the statement that a couple
ia to be married tonight on the Heights,
and that he purposed serenading them
by firing off the explosive and blowing
up a huge stump near their home. Hla
atory waa not believed.
At the powder atore the boy feigned
Ignorance of any knowledge of explo
sives, but betrayed himself by making
statements -that ahowed he was familiar
to a large extent with dynamite. His
general demeanor while in the atore
amused the suspicions of the clerks,
and brought about bis arrest by Po
armor-piercing projectile, which attatna
a velocity of 2,000 feet a second driven
by a charge of 101 pounda of amokeleaa
Hitherto the secondary batteries of
the battleships have been composed
mostly of- (-pounder and (-pounder
rapid-fire guns. On the Louisiana these
will be superseded by 10 (-Inch rapid
flre rifles, throwing a 14-pound explosive
shell. There also will be 12 (-pounder
semi-automatic guns, eight 1-pounder
automatic guns and two (-Inch field
guns and eight machine guns for the
Armor Za Expensive.
The armor for the Loulalana will cost
(1.600.000. While 'the greatest of her
steel protection will be concentrated at
the water line amidships, she also will
be protected the full length of her hull,
and above the main belt of armor plate
there will be three thinner belts of
plates the lower casemate, the upper
casemateand the superstructure armor
Electricity will be employed to as
large an extent on board the Louisiana
ns on any ship In the navy. There will
be electric ammunition hoists and con
veyers, and It la more than probable
that electrical devices for both aiming
and discharging the guns will be In
stalled There also will be an automati
cally controlled motor for the purpose
of keeping the big guns on a horizontal
line while firing In a heavy sea.
The Louisiana has a length of 460 feet
on the load water line, an extreme
breadth of 7( feet 10 inches and a total
displacement of 16,000 tons. She will
be fitted with twin-screw vertical ex
pansion engines of an Indicated horse
power of K.600 and capable of develop
ing a speed of 18 knots or' better.
Carries 800 Men.
The mean draught of the veaael will
be 24 feet alx Inches and the coal supply
00"tons. Twenty-six feet nlns Inches
Is the maximum draught, and If a shot
should t ierce the hull beneath the water
line, a layer of cornplth. placed between
the outer and Inner shells, will swell
and effectually stop the leak The ahlp's
complement will Include 42 officers and
The total cost of the Louisiana will be
In the neighborhood of (4.000.000. The
progress of her construction Is being
watched intently by naval officers, con
structors and shipbuilders generally,
owing to the competition between the
prlvste company that Is building her and
the New York navy yard which Is con
structing the Connecticut The con
struction of these two battleships, which
are practically Identical and the keela of
which were laid at the same time, la In
tended to show whether the government
can successfully compete with the pri
vate snipnuuners in constructing' our
warships. The Newport Newa company
has won the race so far in regards to
time end naval experts seem to be of
the opinion that the private concern will
also succeed in turning out the hsttle
hip at a lower cost than the govern
ment navy yard i
CHIEF HUNT SAYS
HE IS REALLY "IT"
DBomin Lionnu nrro u
Chief Hunt haa often told hla patrol
men that the newspapers of the city
have tried to "put the rollers" under
him, but this morning he had aomethlng
real new, and much more funny, to tell.
He chose the men of the aecond relief
to oonflde in this time.
After addreaalng the men on disci
pline and order for 10 minutes, the chief
launched forth into pralae'of bia police
force, and told the men that Chief of
Police Wlttman of San Francisco told
Captain Moore on hla recent visit to the
Bay City that Chief Hunt had organised
the beat police foroe in the United
"I worked up from the ranks," aaid
Chief Hunt, and he surveyed the police
men who atood before him, aa hla bosom
swelled with pride.
'Tea, from the rank I worked tip."
the chief went on. aa his handa awept
majestically to and fro. "I have been
in thla business i years; built the city
jail hern, auperlntended the magnificent
atate buildings In Providence, which are
among the best In America; have brought
thla force up from nothing to be praised
by the prealdent htmaelf. I am fearless,
and because I am. the newspapera assail
me bitterly, but I do not care what they
say about me. Let them go It."
After delivering himself of the above,
the chief gave orders to the men be
fore him to report for duty In uniform
at the Irvlngton race track thla after
noon, "to ahow those people put there
that there la a police foroe in thla city."
