New York, Aug. 20. New Yorkers
today pursued their usual routine of
busines and 'pleasure in utter disre
gard of the fact that a naval force is
speeding westward over the blue wa
ters of the Atlantic with the known
intention of attacking the city. There
is a bare chance that the commander
of the hostile fleet may change bis
plans and endeavor to effect a land
ing on the New England coast, but
for the Gothamites to cling to this
hope is like a drowning man grasp
ing at a straw for the chances are a
thousand to one that the commander
of the fleet, who is acknowied t0
be an able and daring officer, will
risk the fire of the forts guarding the
Narrows and New York bay in an
attempt to capture the richest prize
that could be won by a naval force
anywhere in the wide world.
A "Make-Believe" Attack.
The equanimity displayed by New
Yorkers in the face of such impending
calamity results not so much from
reliance on the efficacy of the defend
ing forts as from the knowledge that
the approaching attack is to be only
a "make-believe" one. In fact it is
to be a part of the great "war game,'
conceived by President Roosevelt and

aranged by the navy department, and
which may be said to begin today to
continue until late in the fall. The
maneuvers are the most extensive
ever held in the western world. For
monthB past high officials of the army
and navy have been laying the plans
and the result will be awaited with
keen interest by military authorities
throughout the world.
No Preparation Needed.
A warship in commission is con
sidered ready for action at all times j
so that no work of special prepara-l
tion has been necessary for the man
euvers. But with the land fortifica
tions it Is different and much work
has been necessary to put them in
first class fighting condition. The
forts especially involved are: In the
District of Narragansett Fort Ad
ams, at New Port, R. I.; Fort Weth
erill. R. I.; Fort Greble, R I., and
Fort Rodman, Mass. In the District
of New London Fort H. G. Wright,
N. Y.; Fort Michie, N. Y.; Fort Trum
bull, Conn.; Fort Terry, N. Y., and
Fort Mansfield. In the war game
these are commanded by Major Gen
eral JUacArthur, Gen. Hasbrouck, and
Fleet is Mobilizing.
On the navy side the special prepa
rations have consisted in the mobiliz
ation of the fleet to take part in the
game. This fleet is under command
of Rear Admiral Higginson. The first
class battleship Kearsarge is the flag
ship. Then there is the armored
cruiser Brooklyn, Jlying the' flag of
Rear Admiral Coghlan, second in j
command :the first-class battleships j
Alabama and Massachusetts, the crui
sers Olympia and Cincinnati, the gun
boats Gloucester, Mayflower, Scor
pion, Hist, Leyden Nina and Peoria,
the converted cruisers Prairie, Pan
ther and Supply, and seven torpedo
and unon the value of their work will
depend the success of the dofending
smindron'R efforts. The scouts win
attemps .to pick up the enemy's fleet
and hold on to It until a decisive ac-
tit n can be fought Commander John
B. Plllsbury, of tho Prairie, who will
command tho invaders, will seek to
elude the defending squadron at night
in a fog or In any manner possible.
If the defending fleet can catch the
inv.dera in time to bring their ships
within rancr for a .sufficient time to
lon.nlisli tlioni bore their men can
be landed, the defending Bquadron
will be considered to have won.

Problem to be Worked Out
The problem of the first week of
the war game is: Are the coast de
fenses of Long Island Sound and the
advance guard of the United States
fleet capable of preventing the land
ing of an invading army? In the
second week the question will be:
Are the coast defenses of Long Island
Sound capable of preventing the ap
proach to New York harbor of a large
hostile fleet when the navy of the
country happens to be away looking
after some other fleet of the enemy?
Cruisers to go to Sea.
Today, acordlng to schedule, the
converted cruisers are to be detached
from Rear Admiral Higginson's
squadron and go to sea. They will,
during the ensuing seven days, seek
to pass the defending squadron and

destined to prove a boon. Tne farm
er with a section of land in grai
every year can harvest his crop at
very small expense. There is not
farmer who is pretending to harvest
at all who has not a dozen horses
or more. This Is all that is needed
to propel the new machine and it
takes from 32 to 3G large horses to
uraw tne ractory harvester over the
fields. It also takes four or five men
to. operate the old machine, while
with the new machine two men are
all that are needed. With thlB ma
chine any farmer can harvest and
place in the sack a large crop with
only the help of one man.
Think It Is the Coming Machine.
Messrs. Rigby and Clove are very
highly elated over their invention and
are confident of having a machine
that will not only prove a boon to the
small farmer, but will be a fortune to
them. Not a day passes since the
machine was started that several
dozen farmers have not called to see
lit work and all pronounce it doing
perfect work. It is cleaning the
grain as well as any machine, and
everyone who sees il pronounces it
one of the successes of tbe age.
