Washington.—Tbe thirty-ninth battle- •tilp built for the American navy since 1SI*2 took the water when the super- Dreadnought Arizona slipped from the ways of the New York navy yard. Compared to the first American battle ship, the Indiana, launched In 1 Stitt, tbe Arizona Is nearly twice as long, half again as wide and of three times as great displacement. Against the In diana's four thirteen-inch guns and eight eight-inch the Arlzoua w ill carry twelve fourteen-inch and twenty-two five-inch rifles, the same armament as her sister ship, the Pennsylvania, that was recently launched at Newport News. The Indiana's thirteen Inch guns were identical with those aboard the famous old Oregon, which played their part in the battle o f Santiago. With the fourteens o f the Arizona in her turrets, the Oregou could have baited any one o f tbe fleeing Spanish ships almost without leaving her sta tion. The Arizona's guns have a range, even at tbe low elevation o f American navy mountings, o f fifteen miles or more against eight or nine miles for the old thirteens. The Arizona is the fourth battleship built by the United States in its own navy yard at New York. The others A m e ric a n In v e n to r T rio » Out H ie C h e m ic a ls on C on do m rod C a ttlo . Chicago,—A series of exhaustive ex pertinents are beiug conducted at Fort Sheridan, under the supervision o f United States army officers, with the chemical Uunh receutly Invented by Dr. L. It. Fowzer. Condemned cattle are the subjects. Dr, Fowzer declares their death will be lustautaueous. A representative o f the war depart ment conferred with Dr. Fowzer, and it developed that government chemists have been working for u year to per- feet a bomb almost Identical with Dr. Fowzcr's. “ I would not be afraid to tell any one everything used In the bomb," said Dr. Fowzer, "and defy production o f the bomb. The manufacturing process Is the secret I am glad the United States government Is Investigating uiy bomb. Tbls country can bare It for n tithe o f what It would cost any foreign nation. "M y bomb w ill accomplish more to ward eliminating war than your pleas for i>eace. When science succeeds In making war so deadly that men will recoil from It In horror then |>eace will have made gigantic strides." While Dr. Fowzer's claim pertains only to the chemical properties o f tbe bomb, the method o f loading uud shoot ing It from a cannon U something which he expects w ill require consider able experiment. This problem, how ever, seems to have already been solved by the government. The containers and a thin steel casing have been per fected. HARVEST FIELDS OVER-RUN MESSIAH’S KINGDOM.

T i e Imports into France In 1914 to taled $ 1,225,397;000 as against $1.1125,- 317,000 in 1913, and the exports from France In 1914 were $931,131,000 ns compared with $1,327,882,000 In 1913, d decrease o f $39(5,751,OCX). The cruslting extent o f the blow dealt by the war Is shown by the fact that In the first six months of 1914, liefore hostilities, France’s foreign trnde In creased $33,391,000. The tendency o f the war toward eco nomic exliaustlon Is Indicated by the fact that the decrease in Imports and exports was almost entirely In mate rial for the Industries and In manu factures. The United Kingdom suffered less than any other nation by reason o f the decrease In French trade, nnd the Unit ed States came next. The Belgian trade was almost entirely destroyed through the occupancy o f that king dom by the Oprmnn armies. The ship ments from Belgium to France In 1914, before the war, were valued at $00,- 406,000, while the shipments after the | war began, up to Jan. 1, 1915, were only $(577,000. 3 5o 42.48 8 (X) 46.55 Post Office Time Card During th® Bargain Period Ending July 15, 1915 Office hours: Daily, except Sun day, 8 a m. to 6.30 p.rn.

Against tbe New York's displacement of 27,000 tons, however, the Arizona displaces 31,400 tons and measures COO feet in length and' ninety-seven ifect six inches in width. She will mount twelve four- teen-inch guns to the ten fourteens carried by the Texas, and they w ill be carried three to a turret, as aboard the Pennsylvania. Immediately the keel o f the navy department's greatest experiment in naval construction, the electrically driven super-Dreadnought California, will be laid at the New York navy yard. She will be nearly 1,000 tons heavier than tbe Arizona, although carrying the same equipment and arrangement o f guns, but Is expected to develop a greater speed than the twenty-one knots desired o f the Arizona. Comparing the most recent govern ment built battleship to tbe first turn ed out, navy officials point to the fact that although the Arizona has twelve guns to the Connecticut's four and dis places 15,400 tons more water, being nearly twice as large, she will carry only 015 men ns against tbe 1,012 men who are needed to handle the smaller ship. This is due to the Improvement In me chanical appliances for battleships in the last decade and also to the fact that oil has been substituted for coal as fuel, decreasing the necessary fire room force and that only two sizes of guns compose her armament against the four sizes aboard the Connecticut The Arizona was sponsored by Miss Esther Ross o f Prescott, Ariz., nomi nated by Governor Hunt o f Arizona.
