He Talks Intelligently About the New
Hoston, Mass., Aug. 24. A Boston
Journal reporter Interviewed Rear
Admlral Sampson on the train for
Admiral -Sampson was reminded
that Admiral Colomb, the English
naval authority, had said that this
war had taught no lessons In naval
architecture ornayal strategy.
"If lie said that," was the comment
"ho does nob know what he Is talking
about, for the war has taught a great
many things. For one thing It has
shown the necessity of making ships
of war lircproof. lb won'b suffice
merely to make the wood fireproof, In
my opinion, for there are objections to
the process, as It Involves unnecessary
expense. Ships ought to bo built prac
tically without woodwoak at all, and
there Is no good reason why this can
not. Ic done. ATler the way In which
the woodwork of the Spanish ships
raught lire, causing the destruction
of the ships, there can be no question
about, tiic importanccnf Lliischangc.''
'The trouble with Colomb may be
he has always been an advocate of
torpedo boats as we used to hear be
fore the. war," It was suggested.
"Probably not. At the same lime,
It must l.c remembered, that
torpedo boats have never had a ically
fair test. They have always been
faulty In construction, necessary qual
ities haying been sacrificed to speed.
There Is no good reason why a tor
pedo boatshould have a speed of more
than 24 or 23 m'les an hour, but It
has been thought so important to
have them speedy that they have
been made too light and In some in
stances they are a little better than
"It won't do, either, to draw too
hasty a conclusion from the way In
which tho Gloucester, which was a
converted yacht, did up the Furor and
the Pluton. The Gloucester was
hastily transformed Into a torpedo
boat destroyer, It is true, but It Is
not a small boat by any means."
"How about the big guns? A great
many people seem to think the guns
Lof hlglnr caliber are nob of w much
accounb lu babble."
A laruo number of; Oiegou troops

vice so that tlioy can return to Salem
and got v oino of tluwo I5c meals 'at

and in fact everything for
comfort in camp life, of

"The big guns will always be needed.
There Is work which they can do and
which Isout of tho question for the
smaller calibers. It happened at San
tiago that, the Slnchnguns and the
rapid-lire guns did great execution,
but this was because they could strike
the Spaniards below the belt, as it
were. When lb comes to pleiclng
heavy aiinnr the high caliber guns
mustbe brought Into action.
"Then theie Is the question of
smokeless powder. .Our ships oiiL'ht
to bo .supplier wllli smokeless powder
for several reasons. First, the most
Important Is the great adyantaire in
velocity. With ordinary powder the
velocity is something like 2100, with
smokeless powder It is nearly 2.500."
Admiral Sampson expressed doubt
as to whether it would beudvlslble to
raise the Cristobal Colon. v He was
afraid It was now to late to accom
plish anything in that direction.
