BRIGHT FUTURE FOR OUR NAVY
The report of the secretary of the
navy, for the first time in our his
tory, ia bound to attract more atten
tion than that of any other cabinet
officer. . Every nation that .has a
navy of any importance is eager to
learn what the United States intends
to do in the wav of naval construe
lion, and the American people them
selves are thinking far more about
the navy than any other department
of the government.
The people will be interested in
the authoritative and official story
of the great naval engagements of
the war and in the administrative re
forms recommended by Secretary
Long; but in Europe the main inter
est .will be in the recommendations
to increase the navy. Recognizing
as inevitable the expansion of our
sovereign rights over Porto Rico,
Cuba and the Philippines, Secretary
Long recommends the construction
of three first-class, heavily armored,
sea going battleships, three armored
cruisers of the largest class, three
others of the class of the Olympia,
(Admiral Dewey's flagship), and six
of lighter draft than the Raleigb and
the Boston. Each of the battleships
sre to be sheathed and coppered, to
have a trial displacement of 12,500
tons, to be fully armored and to car
ry the most powerful ordnance. The
estimated cost, not including armor
and armament, is $3,600,000 each.
Our largest battleship in commission,
the Iowa, has a displacement of 11,
340 tons. England's largest battle
ships, of the Majestic type, have a
displacement of 14,900 tons each.
The largest battleships of France
have a displacement of 12,205 tons
each; Germany, 11,130 tons each;
of Russia, 12,540 tons each. The
new battleships recommended. by the
secretary of the navy will . be larger
than any others afloat, except the
largest battleship of England.
The three large cruisers will have
a trial displacement of 12,000 tons
each and will be expected to devel
ope the highest practical speed and
the greatest radius of action. The
estimated cost, exclusive of armor
and armanent, Is $4,000,000 each.
The Brooklyn, the largest of our ar
mored cruisers in commission, has a
displacement of 9,215 tons; the New
"York a displacement of 8,200 tons.
The three large cruisers recommended
by the secretary of the navy will be
larger. than the new cruisers ordered
by Great Britain. The largest ar
mored cruiser of Spain, the Dupuy
de Lome, has a displacement of 6,
300 tons. Russia's largest armored
cruiser has a displacement of 7,782
The three sheathed and coppered
protected cruisers are to have a trial
displacement of 6,000 tons each. The
estimated cost exclusive of armor
and armament, is $2,150,000 each.
The six sheathed and coppered
protected cruisers of lighter draught
are to have a trial displacement of
2,500 tons, with an estimated cost
exclusive of armor and armament, of
1,141,000 each. The fifteen vessels
"to commended by the secretary call
for an expenditure of $36,100,000. ,
These fifteen vessels are in addir
tion to the three battleships, Maine,
' Missouri, and Ohio, the four moni
tors, and the twenty torpedoboat de
stroyers ordered by the last congress.
We have jin course of construction
the battleships Kearsarge, Kentucky,
Illinois, Alabama and Wisconsin.
All oi these are heavier than the
Iowa, each having a displacement of
12,525 tons. The Maine, the Mis
souri and the Ohio are to have a dis
placement of 13,500 tons each.
If the recommendations of the sec
retary of the navy are adopted, as
every consideration demands that it
should be, we shall have in the near
future fifteen first-class battleships,
one second-class battleship, and
twenty-six" armored and protected
cruisers. We have now in commis
sion four battleships of the first class,
one of the second class, two armored
cruisers, twelve protected cruisers
and three unprotected cruisers. The
program outlined by Secretary Long
will give us a navy well up toward
the standaid of France, and, ade
quately supplemented in subsequent
years, will put us third in the list of
the naval powers of the world.
