United Slates to Lead World With
Bttllshlp( of Great Power.
Washington. Aug. 19. Congros
may be asked next winter to provide
for two 30,000-ton battleships, each
with 12 14'inch guns, and each costing
$12,000,000, It is stated that such a
program has been pretty carefully stu
After considerable preliminary work,
tho first 14-Inch gun has been con
structed at tho Mldvale works, and Is
shortly to bo testod at tho naval prov
ing grounds at Indian Head. II it la
deemed dosirablo to havo guns of 14-
Inch caliber. It will Immediately bo-
come u question whether thero shall be
10 or 12 or such guns on each battle
ship. Tho proposition of two jcara
ago, during tho Newport conference.
waa to have 10 14-Inch guns Instead ol
12 12 Inch guns, the former caliber to
have a relatively diminished velocity.
It was finally decidod, however, that
when the 14-inch gun was dovolopod it
should bo of a hitting power commen
surate with tlio Increase of caliber com
pared with the 12-inch gun. There is
an inclination also to adhere to 12-Inch
guns In the battleship battery, and it
la posilblo that with tho adoption of
the 14-Inch gun thoro will be 12 Instead
of 10 of thoso rifles, in which ovent
the next battleships to bo authorized
will be of at least 30,000 tons displace
ment, and estimated to cost approxi
mately $12,000,000 each.
It is likely such a battleship will
havo the ssmo speed and endurance as
tho 20,000-ten-battleships now build
ing. Much moy dopend in the determ
ination of this question upon the plans
adopted by European navies.
