THE NAVY BEFORT.
The reports of the operations of the
various bureaus of the navy depart
ment for the past fissalyear havebeen
cimp-.lerl uador the direction of
Sasrets y Thompson and handed in to
the president. Aside from bare
sta'ishcs , these reports contain msny-
mv-ctical suggesclons of interest to the
whole country. They Indicate how
inferior our navy is to those of other
nations , and how completely cur sea
citst would bo at the mercy of a for
eijn ; invader in time of war , They
dwell upon the insufficiency of the ai-
nament of our men-of-war , the inad
equate numbur of vessels composing
the fleet , and the necessity of immed
iate steps to place our navy on c
peice footing at leant equal to that of
third class naral powers like Spain
Few of our people living in the in-
tariorof the continent stop to reflect on
the vast extent of the sea coast of the
United States. It Is greater in extent
than that of any one other nation on
the globe. Our largest citiea are
furnished with harbors of easy
access. Hundreds of smaller
cities and towns ara situated
on inlets where ships of the largest
draught can lie al anchor. In time of
siar the only safeguards against in
vasion would be a navy which could
giro battle in deep sea and drive off
the enemy out of range of the shore.
With onr present navy sush a conflict
would be impossible. We have no
ship which could compete with
the monster iron clads of Europe
" " "Monarch " "La
the "Italia , the , or
France , " any one of which could ride
in perfect eafety past the forts which
goatdthe harboia of oir Atlantic and
Pacific coasts. Not a single vessal of
cur navy is armed with long range
guns , or which carry a projectile
weighing over 1GOO pounds. In short ,
in build , equipment , armor and arma
ment our navy is the weakest and
poorest of any maritima nation in the
Congress is asked to appropriate a
sufficient amount to finish and equip
two ironc'ads now lying useless in the
docks of the Philadelphia navy yard ,
and to appropriate a sum sufficient to
procure B few guns which iu case of
urgent necessity might compote
with those of a Spanish gun
boat. It is to be hoped that
now , when Ihe democratic aham
of economy has been pretty well ex.-
plodedcongres3 will no longer pursue
the old time penny wise and pound
f jolish policy.
Tm : appointment of E. L. Bier-
bower , of Omaha , ai United States
marshal for Nebraska , to succeed
Hon. Wm. Daily , the appoiutco of
Jost'ca Miller , is not pleasing in. the
'icht of The Omaha Republican. Mr.
I3 rbower is a Rosewter msn. Ho
is a Saanders man. He h , further
more , a voarg man , who has baen a
dejiuiy marshal during his entire
rer-idencs ia Omaha , and there
are men "who hate grown gray
in tha service of the party"
who should have been pruferrfd to
him. The Upubli. an is thankful that
.Hr. Hayes1 term is nesr its "end. It
insists that the fedor.il patronage of
Nebraska h is born placed entirely at
ihe disposal of Senator Siuudcw , to
iha ditregard cf his colleagues and
> ihers , as a reward for ins vote fcr
the retirement of Gon. Arthur from
the Nisw York custom house , in
the contest between the great
senator from Ne7 York and the
president. This is the full signifi-
C..HCO of the appointment , and the
unpleasant character of it , from The
Republican's point of view. Yet it is
to be admitted that it has Eome excuse
in the civil service rules , if they af
ford excuse for anything , and it is to
ha hoped the new msrtbal may seek
to osicuto , in the administration of
nis offict1 , somewhat of the Geo.-Wm.-
Curtis theory of politics. [ Sioux
GreafcScott ! What a monster Bier-
bower must be. He is a Rosawater
man , a Saunders man , a Hayes man
and a Gar field man. His brother ,
Vic. Bierbower , was elected by the
Rcscwatkr and Saunders gang of po
litical pirates that controlled the re
publican state convention , which sent
n solid delegation against the third
termers from Nebraska to Chicago ,
and Vic. Bierbower , under the lash
of Roeowater refused to vote for
Grant and did vote for Gaifield with
the rest of the Nebraska delegation.
This is the pedigree of the Bier-
bower's , and the Sioux City echo of
the Omaha Ifrpu&h'can must make a
note cf it before it copies the
twentieth obituary of Rosewater from
its political monitor in Omaha.
Why don't the Sioux City echo join
the Omaha U. P. organ in clamoring
for a battle scarred veteran for the
Nebraska marshalship ? That office
has always been filled by brave
veterans , you know. During the vrai
it was filled by the valorous Hitchcock ,
who never came within one thousand
miles of a rebel bullet and immedl
itely after the war , Casper E. Yost
mother gallant warrior who foughl
the battles of his country as a norm
guard , was United States marsha
for Nebraska until General Gram
kicked him out ot the office for John
aonizing. With such bravo patriots ai
bis predecessors in office Mr. Bigr
bower will , of course , cut a very sorr ]
figure among stalwarts. Had he ex
posed himself to the perils whicl
Hitchcock and Yost have braved fo
this glorious republic , had he marchei

A Threatened Revolution In Naval
The construction of the new fron
war yacht Livadia , recently built on
iho Clyde for the Czar of Russia , and
the success which hasalready attended
its experimental trips , would seem to
indicate that we are on the verge of a
thorough revolution in naval archi
tecture. Hitherto all shipbuilders
have proceeded upon the assumption
that the \hren foundamental reqniaits
of a vessel are length , narrowness of
beam , and depth of hold. The teats
as applied to the Livadia show that
this assumption is wrong and that the
requiaits are length , breadth , and
light draft. The Gear's yacht Is con
structed upon these principles , and
when the models and measurements
as made by the Russian engineer
were submitted to the Clyde ship
builders they laughed at them and
predicted not only that such a vessel
could not stand heavy seas , but
that she could not make any material
headway , whateverher propelling pow-
or. They went ahead , however , and
built the vessel , and when she was
launched and steamed down the Clyde
out into the Irish channel , passing
everything on the way , and. meeting
with no apparent resistance from the
sea , they looked on with astonish
ment , almost doubling the evidence
of their own senses. The Livadia is
shaped very nearly ou t e model of n
soup-tureen. Perhaps a better illus
tration would be a duck which fowl ,
skimming along swiftly and easily on
the top of the waves may have sug
gested the idea to the Russian design
er. The czar's yacht IB 235 feet in
length and 153 feet in breadth , so
that her breadth is about two-thirds
her length , and is fully four times as
wide as an ordinary ocean steamer.
If four of our large-sized lake pro-
pullers could be lashed or bound to
gether in one common framework this
"fleet" might give some Idea of the
relative width to her length of the
Livadia. The hull , which ia steel
clad , is onlyabout six feet above the
water-line , the space above that being
ie devoted to sumptuous cabins , corn
dors , and apartments for the useo :
the royal family , and , as she draws bin
is seven feet of water , and her bottom ii
Sat , and without any keel to speak of
it will be seen that she moves upoi
the surface of the water like a plan !
d or raft , and thus does not enconnte :
the tremendous force and resistanci
of the waves which seagoing vessel
submerged from twenty five to thirty
feet in the water have to encounter
Any one who has sailed the seas know ;
the fearful force of these waves in >
storm , and the manner in which ordi
nary vessels pitch and roll in thel :
efforts to plunge through and over
come the tremendous resistance , des
cribing angles anywhere fron
25 degrees to right angles , bu
the Livadia , while in the Bay of Bis
cay , one of the stormiest places ii
the world , encountered a full Biacayai
gale , and yet the anplo of her roll wa
never above 4 decrees , nor the augl
of her pitch above 5 degrees. One o
id her passengers , writing to The LOB
don Times , says : "Her behavior was
far superior In every way to that of
vessels of ordinary construction. The
dinner table was served just as if the
ship were at anchor In port , at the full
height of the gale ; the broad covered
gallery , which extends all round the
open deck , was never reached by sea ,
and hardly by the spray , except at the
height of the storm. " The lightaesa
of the vessel , her buoyancy , her enor
mous lifting power , the ease with
which she sails along the surface , and
the immunity of her flat Hot-
torn from the pounding of
the waves are not her only
good qualities. With her powerfu
engine * and two large propellers , one
each side of her rudder , she easily
steams sixteen knots (18 ( miles ) per
hour , which is equal to the maximum
speed of the swiftest war-vessels , , and
considerably beyond that of commer
The success of the Livadia opens up
the prospect tf a complete revolution
in the science of marine architecture ,
and must have a powerful influence in
changing the methods of 'navigation
and transportation. When vessels
come to ba constructed on the model
of the Livldia , the terrors of a sea
voyage , and even its discomforts , are
reduced to the minimum. The pas
sage of the ocean in winter or in its
most stormy periods can ba made
with comparative comfort and
immunity from danger , and passen
gers , living in a floating hotel as it
were , npon the surface of the sea ,
will also avoid the exposure of health
and the wretched discomforts arising
from riding in the hold of a vessel ,
with its impure air and bad ventila
tion. For war purposes also vessels
of this class will revolutionize the
present methods. Strongly armored
with steel , swift sailers , accurate in
ranges and firing ; since the aim of
the gunner is not interfered with by
the plunging of the craft , rising but a.
short distance out of the water for
the superstructure of the "Livadia"
would not be necessary and able by
their light draft to ran close in shore ,
they would be powerful engines of
destruction. Their carrying power
will also be very great. A vessel like
Ihe "Livadia' ' can carry from GOOD
to 8,000 troops , or a brigade of artil
lery with iis guns , apd easily land
them , and it adds to thoireffectivoness
that they can be increased to almost
any size , since the longer and broader
they are the safer they are. It is al
most impossible to overstate their ad'
vantages in a oommescial seruo. They
will not only carry much greater car
goes of live slock , grain and mer
chandise of all sorts , but carry them
in nafety. There is hardly a vessel
that crosses the ocean with cattle or
horsea but has to lose a part of them
iu rough weather , and the number
of grain carrying vessels loat
every season from shifting ot
cargoes is something appalling.
Almost evo.-y port will ba op3ned to
commerce. Now the large seagoing
vessels can only enter harbors hdvinj :
from twenty-five to thirty feet of
water. The new vessels would be
able to enter any of our ports from
Galveston to Portland. There would
be no need of jetties at the mouth of
the Mississippi , for tho-e broid
beamed vessels , drawing but seven
feet of water , regardless of jetties or
bars , would steam up the Mississippi
to Memphis , and for most of the year
to Cairo , taking on wheat , corn , and
cotton for Europe direct , and up the
Hudson to Albany for cargoes. By
simply widening the locks these hugd
craft would come up the St. Lawrence
tuid through the Welland canal to nil
our lake ports , and the problem of
direct trade with Europe would be
solved. In every feature of trauspor
tation , whether for plossure-travelfor
the carrying on of war , or for the
development of cotnmercethe , Livadia
promises to be tha pioneer of fleets of
vessels that are destined tc work a
t evolution whose results and in
fluences upon the world can kardly be
calculated , while at the eame time
they bid fair to strip the very ocean
of its terrors and to curb its pjwer so
that man's control will not step with
The Colored Man's Six Fingered
St Louis Republican.
The colored people In several Mis
souri towns have lately been victim
ized by a whitn sonctinvinius sharper ,
gft up in n t-t\ 1 .v 1 - 1 uhtod to de
ceive. He is pi iiJ-cumplexioned ,
lank and lantern-jawed fellow , with
six fingers on each hind and some tattooing
teeing on his arms to show. He is
pictorial , spectacular and sensational.
He professes to have a mission to
heal tha sick and increase the poor's
pile of money by his miraculous pow
er. He claims to be sent especially to
the people of African origin , who are
only too ready to believe in his mission
to their sorrow and great discomfort.
He is something of nn expert at.
sleight-of-hand , and does his tricks
with money silver or paper. He
s voopj down upon the colored colonies
of the town like a hawk among flocks
of chickens , but instead of fearing the
bird of prey they believe him to be a
messenger from heaven. He calls the
sick and the poor about ' him , and
shows them his hands , which are netlike
like other men's , and his tattoo , all of
which he claims are his credentials
for his mission of mercy. These ap
pear to be generally satisfactory , and
he talks business. For instance , he
cures rheumatism , for a small sum , to
ba paid when the cure is complete ,
but he must have all the money in
the house in his hands to work
with or the charm will not
be good. The cash Is raked
and scraped together and handed to
him. According to its character or
amount he asks for an envelope , a
sheet of a paper or an old stocking.
He pretends to wrap up the money ,
with ceremonies incantations , hands
the bundle back to the afflicted per
son and orders that it be bidden away
in a safe place and not looked at or
disturbed for seven dayr , else the
magic spell will be broken. Then ho
leaves and promises to return at the
end of tha time , find the sufferer heal
ed , and receive his fee. The thing only
requires faith and strict obedience to
orders , and he depends upon credulity
and obedience until he * gets out of
town. It is a now way of doing an
old trick. When the package n op
ened there Is no money there only a
blank paper for notes , and worthless
metal for silver. The miracle-worker
never returns for his small iee and
the rheumatism or other malady still
hangs on to the swindled sufferer.
Where the magician finds no sicknejc
but ranchfaith _ he varies the perform
ance by getting hold of the ready
money as before , and with the same
tricky treatment promising that the
amount will befound doubled in sever
days if the package is left alone to In
crease and multiply. At last rccounti
this philanthropic trick had beet
played in the African quarters ol
Jefferson City , Mexico and Glasgow ,
Missouri. In Glasgow one patient
lost twenty dollars , and the whole
amount collected by the six-fingerec
prophet of the colored race was fiftj
dollars. He does business promptlj
and travels rapidly , and it appear i
that no exposition of his trick : ha ;
yet headed him off. The colored people
ple of this state have other than po1
litical-grievances to complain of ,
through their too credulous and con
fiding nature. Let them look out foi
