that iomcthlns uiiUMUtl hnd K.ij-j.i-i v J. ! u

answer by henrt-bre.iklni ; sobs. Xollilng
was left except to take the wandetlnB waif
lo tlio police station hard by , where , before a
roarlnt : cannel lire , he maimed to Jerk out :
"Mother Is dead In the water , with baby
slslcr and my brothois , Harry and Frnnk. 1
wnnt my father. "
It became evident tlmt the boy was shock
ingly frightened , > ct soon , growing calmer
under the reviving Influence of heat and some
food , he cave his home as IS ! Denmaik road ,
Camberwell , a suburban district on Iho Sur
rey side of the Thames nnd miles distant. A
telegram sent to the nearest station there
soon produced the father , who is a well-to-do
Imtchernnd who , on seeing his child , seemed
to reall'/e that some tragedy had occurred anil
almost fainted before the stoiy was told. To
Ills eager questions the child , leassured , now
; ; avu coherent answeis , and these made up a
story like this :
TALK or THE TiiAor.nv.
Ills mother left home in the afternoon
airylng her babe , live months old , with her
sons Hairy , nine veaisold , Iho narrntorot
this slory hlnitelf , Charles , seven years old ,
and Fiank , aged thiee. They took the tram
car to the tlver side , boarded a penny cam-
boat , got off at Chelsea stairs , walked to
Vnuxhall and entered n penny tea gnrden ,
whcrotenniid milk were provided them. They
then left , walking , doubtless , aimlessly along
tlm embankment beyond Wadsworth bridge
when , pcihnps by a sudden Impulse , tno
mother turned into the llrovvn home dock
yard , near the lluillnghnm polo pounds
nnd nil nt once pushed her three boys Into the
dock water , and with her babe In nuns her
self jumped In. Ciiatlle , who must hnvo
fallen in a soniowhat.sliallow place , scrambled
out , but was too much caied to give a coher
ent account of his oscane.
A i-irm IJUAIIIIII. : run cArsi : .
When tlio inspector questioned the father ,
who was soDhlng as loudly as the child , ho
said : "My wife and 1 had n silly quanel. It
began on Sunday last , and was daily deep
ened by mutual reel Imlnatlon. Friilay after
noon , as she still felt very badly , I suggested
n little outing to a friend's house , and this
is the lioriiblo ending of a foolish tltr. "
Tlie pair remained till dawn nt the station ,
when a searchlin ; police party was organ
ized , the meinbei.s of which , with much dllll-
ctilty , found llirou.-h the boy the place of Hie
catastrophe. Three lltllo slraw hats lloallng
at the side of the dock gave the first conobor-
allou of the youthful Ialo of murder and sui
cide. A little later the body of Harry was
found In live feet of water. It was neatly
dicsscd and had on a gray overcoat and
knirkcrbockes. ; The face vvoio n look of
gieat terror. Soon after midday one of the
Thames' vulture folk , described in the first
chapter of Dickens' "Our Mutual Friend , "
discovered near Fulham .biidgo the body of
Frank , clad in a neat grey frock and plnn-
lore , once white , but now soiled with
Thames sewerae. The bodies lie at tlie
Chelsea mortuaiy , suriounded by an immense -
menso crowd of curiosity mongers , eapcilv
discussing the last London sensation. The
mother and the b.ibe have not yet been
nr.rojin Tiirc Tn.\nii > Y.
Those In the tea ganien who . aw the RIOIIJ )
of four w hen taking their last meal desci Ibe
the mother as seemingly pel fcctly sane and
appaienlly happy. Unfoitunately llttlo can
bo learned as to tlio cause ot snch an im
pulse and ol the manner ot such a resoivo in
mother thirty-five years old , always hereto
fore lovincly maternal , the only witness
available being young and having had his
memory obscuied by terror. I'sycholojists
thus have no clue ns to what was passing In
the woman's mind and as to whether her act
was the result of piemedltation or Impulse.

OpintoiiH Which Put tlio New Ameri
can Vessels In Had Ijlght.
LONDON , Oct. 17. [ Now Yoik Herald
Cable-Special to tlio Br.H. ] From William
John , manager and naval architect of tlio
UariowShlp Building company at Harrow ,
In Furness , who Is a well reco n Ied author
ity on thu construction of fast cruisers , I ob
tained his written opinion regarding the
American new steel cruisers. Ho said :
" 1 have seen tlio plans of your cruisers , but
have not examined them closely enough to
speak confidently of them. Fewer guns and
inoro speed would , 1 think , bu better. A
model cruiser should not only outsteam all
Ironclads , but al ° o merchants' ships likely
to be armed as ci niseis. It should , moie-
ovcr , have a coal simply for long chases at
high speed piactlcally that it should excel
meichantmcn In both speed and coal stowage.
Iioncladsnie , ofcouise , absolutely wotthless
lor protecting commerce or destroying eruls-
eis. Crullers of nineteen knots speed me
absolutely safe so as honclads are con
cerned. "
"No ; coaling at sea Is so prccnilous that
only picsslng emergencies would justify
ti listing to it. I do not think such Amcilcan
poitsas Xew Vork ate in the slightest dan-
ircr fiom any class of Ironclads nllont. Tor
pedoes and submarine torpedo boats add ,
yon know , so vastly to tlio dillicul-
tics that toielgn Ironclads would have to con
tend against outside these polls. I would
not dieam of using Ironclads lo piotcct Now
Yoik ncalnsi lionclnds. There is too srroit n
field In thu usu of the various terms ot (01- (
pedo boats and dynamite shells lor defensive
puiposcs. I think that torpedoes , combined
with dynamite shells , will have a morn pi o
nounccd effect on Ihu world's future navies
limn toruedoos have had In the past. I think
American warships should bo designed and
constiuctcd by Ameilcaiis in Ameilca , "
Mr. Watts , the constructor al Kllswlck ,
Nowcastle-on-Tyne , to whom I next appealed
ut Aimstiong's ship works , iolt that oxlsllng
circumstances forbade him to discuss tko
Ameilcjii crulbers. Sir Nallmnlel Uainaby ,
chief director of naval construction in the
British admiralty under Iho Clndstono gov-
eminent , for tlie snmo leason declined to
discuss naval nmttois. Sir Kdwurd Iteed ,
Into chief constitutor of the Hi Itish navy , was
pi evented by puvero Illness from discussing
the new cuuseis. In conversation with ine ,
however , some dnys ago , ho declined that
Amtilca Is not able to do without Ironclads
of Iho heaviest type. Uo said wo should
have six nuuoi-clttds of 7,000 , tons each nnd
SOCOhoi > powersixteen knots speed and
Iweuty-fonr Inch otcul armour , but with un-
nrmotod cstiemltleri , tocost S200ooo each ,
Onn novelty ho ad\oeated earnestly was that
the t-lngle 1W > ton cannon which these vessels
would entry thould bo cntliely unprotected ,
thus saving 1,000 tons of minor usually placed
around such cannon ,
A vinv : i > icinii : : > oriNios ,
Mr. K , 0. Wnniei , late chief constructor of
tlm Chatham loyal navy yard , held decided
opinions about the new American embers ,
and expiesscd them without hesitation , lie
tald :
"Kiiul.uul now has constructed or under
construction eight unariiiored cruiseisof the
u-gularnvctaxc sever.teen-knol speed , six ar-
u.i ic I ciuisers of eighteeu-knot speed , and
t unr now in hand will UYOiago nineteen
knots. Of ocean torpedo catchers , able to
steam across the Atlantic in any weather ,
there are four under construction , certain to
steam nineteen knots an hour , and several
larger ones are also contemplated to run
twcnlv knols. Foutteen-knot cruisers art )
absolutely useless in fact , a kind ol remnant
of the naval 'dodo' tribe. lghleen knols
should bo the minimum speed of modern
crulscis. "
" 1 low do the Amcilcan cruisers compare
with the latest models1' '
"Well , 1 will tell > ott a seciet to scno as n
comparison. Two ocean crulseis which , al
though small , are In every way suitable for
long distance ocean ciiilslug hnvo just been
built for n foielgn government. They have
mnilo on the average twenttwo and one-
half knots nn hour , on n six horns' trl.u. In
the face of such cruisers jour men-of-war
would have to go to tlio bottom foi safety.
Why should n government buy the tortoise
when It can get a haio ? Your small Rimboals
are lo have only Ivvclvu knots sliced , but
really vessels of over 4,000 Ions and
under til teen knols speed are worse than
useless. America will bo throwing money
away. "
WHAT THE I10AT9 Slinfl.D HE.
"Ocean erusleis should can T ' .wo twenty-
live ton guns for bow nnd stern chasers , also
sldo batteiies of six-ton cannon ; If of 0,0(10 (
tons , should stuam twenty knots ; if of 4,000
tons , nineteen tons ; It : ! , eCO tons , eighteen
knots. Such ipccd is perfectly possible. No
countiy deseives a good navy moio than
America. "
Amonu other authorities whoso names I
am not nhlo to use , 1 noticed tlio same leclini ;
that ctiisleis under eighteen knots assmed
speed would set vc only as oceans pnveis for
use in flooring the Atlantic lather than as
serviceable war vessels. .
I.OI.D CIIAKI.RS ni.ursronn's OPINION ,
Aimed with a copy of Admlinl Aubo's in
terview , sent from Palis tor that purpose , !
went to Lord Charles Ueiesfoid's lumse to ob
tain his views rcgauliii the new American
cruiseis. Lord Charles had just idmned to
London and was too much occupied with the
ndmlialty and his piivato business to ECU
mo. However , In ) ever tlm French In
tel v lew nnd sent by bis secrelaiy the follow
ing opinion of It : "Loid Charles Ilcresfuid
qnito agrees with Admiral Aubo's idea , that
no cruiser Is of nnj use in wnifaic unless It
is equal In speed to the fastest oceangoing
merchant vessels , and In addition that it
must have great coal cnirjiiiK capacity , fuel
being tlio very lite or bieatti ofthcciulser
In paiticulnr.
ri.osin : THAN CI.AMS
At the admiralty I met an absolute re
fusal toc.xpicss any opinion lepirdim ; naval
nlfalis , either home or foieUn. The officials
of the construction deparlmenl seemed lo
have a decided opinion rcgniding the Amei- cruisers , but without exception said It
would be Impossible for them to express any
opinion without tlie peuiiisslon of the de-
paitmcnr. In tlie absence in the countiy of
Lord George Hamilton , Iiist loid of the ad
miralty , I saw his pocretaiy , Loid Wnlmer
Keir , who said he though It would bo impos
sible to ret permission to obtain the opinions
of the navy olllcials. He passed me on , how
ever , to tlie peimancnt navv becietmy. in
whoso hands the power lay. The sccietniy
said it would be quite impossible to obtain
tlie views of navy olllcials regarding the now
American vessels. The department would
object so seilously that even If pcimission
were obtained fiom the ICirlish secio'ary ' of
state , it would be Icnnred by the admiinlty.
Kach nation must build Us own navy. I'IIK-
latid might 1)0 willing to aid Ameilca but
could not do so v , itliont aiding Ku sla and
Franco also. I thcreloio ccnsa ! the attempt
to obtain further ofllelal opin on , pieferring
