our government Is attempting to prop
erly adjuat by this circumnavigation of
the globe. When President Uoosevelt
first announced that the fleet of butt!
till was to make the long journey
from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean
the Ieuiocrats turned prophets of evil
and predicted many diaaitrous thing
would follow as a conaeuueuc) of this
Ara,a4a Wrll Ovale.
The armada took Its departure from
Hampton Koads, Dec. !. 1907, and
after a wholly successful voyage around
the Horn, of about twelve thousand
miles. It dropped anchor In fen Fran
elsoo Harbor May 6. 1008. The aliipa
that form the four divisions of the fleet
In this record-making cruise are: The
Connecticut, Louisiana, Maine, Mia
sourl. Georgia, New Jersey, Rhode 1st
and, Virginia, Alabama, Illinois, K ear
ear je, Kentucky, Ohio, Minnesota, Kan
sas and Vermont. To which were add
ed the Nebraska and the Wisconsin, a!
ready In Puget Sound, thus making a
fleet of eighteen first-class ' modern
battleships In perfect condition.
There were already In the Pacific
and Oriental waters the fine armored
cruisers West Virginia, Colorado, Ma
ryland and Pennsylvania. Their two
alster ships, the California and South
Dakota, were also on the Pacific, and
the powerful Washington and Tennes
see went from the Atlantic to Join the
armada, thus making eight armored
cruisers to be added to the eighteen
battleships. In addition there were In
the Pacific several protected cruisers,
gunboats and other lesser craft. All
told there were ten hundred and fifty
officers and nineteen thousand five hun
In due time the main fleet of war
ships resumed Its western course and
will touch at the lending ports of China
and Australia, passing ou east by way
of the west, and coming finally to Mal
ta and Gibraltar, where It will coal
and ultimately return to Its starting
point at Ilnmpton Roads, some time
early next February.
In this expedition the Republlnn
party has a policy which projects itself
far Into the future, but It Is an entire
misunderstanding of the whole scheme
to suppose that it Is aimed narrowly
or definitely at any single power. It is
one of those robust constructive poli
cies of the party gauged on world lines.
It Is more of a notification than a
thrent, to all existing governments.
Welding North and Sooth America.
The eyes of the world have followed
our fleet with absorbing interest. One
of the great advantages gained by this
cruise Is the cordial welcome and close
acquaintance which It has evoked from
the governments and peoples of the
chief republics of Latin America. To
the Brazilians, the Argentines, the Chi
lians and the Peruvians, the mighty re
public of the north had been merely a
name or a dim figure, powerful and
honored perhaps, but not actually
known. For years there had been lit
tle or no visible evidence of the wealth,
or authority of the United States, In
the chief South American ports. But
they were all visited by swift and
stately liners, flying the flags of the
maritime powers of Europe.
At every South American port the
fleet, our navy, our government, our In
stitutions, our people, our aims, our
industries, our trade every conceivable
thing that is ours, have been discussed
as tney never were nerore, ana mat
without suspicion of our political and
diplomatic Intentions. One business
house in New York states that Its
South American correspondence hss to
creased fourfold since the fleet visited
Rle Janeiro. In this case It seems that
trade may follow the battleships.
Fraf4ea Rooaevelt Explain. Mare-
In a statement In a speech be made
In St. Louis, President Roosevelt took
the public Into his confidence to a de
gree when be said: "California, Ore
gon and Washington have a coast line
which Is our coast line just as emphat
ically as the coast line of NewTork and
Maine, of Louisiana and Texas. Our
fleot Is going to Its own home waters
iu the Pacific and after a stay there It
will return to its own home waters
!a the Atlantic. The best place for the
naval officer to learn his duties is st
sea, by performing them, and only by
actually putting through a voyage of
this nature, a voyage longer than any
one befere undertaken by as large a
fleet of any nation, can we find out
just exactly what Is necessary for us to
know as to eur naval needs and prac
tice our officers and enlisted men In
the highest duties of their profession."
