Representative Meyer of Louisiana of the

MAJKSTV OP THE NAVY.
Never before ha.i the majesty ot the
t'n.teil StaUs born represented by
er > largo and powerful a lleut of war
ships ,3H that now gathered off the
cost of Florida , within tlrlklug dUtJtico
of the Ida nil of Cuba. Whether the ahlps
are called Into action or not , an examina
tion of the squadron now engaged ostensibly
In drill , -but really In warning the progrcsj
of events across the narrow channel which
scparJtfn the Dry Tortugas from Havana ,
fir-OWE that It was not collected for dress
parade purpcscn. For a year the Navy de
partment has been preparing for this very
o"easln , and the result Is a fleet sui-h as
IMS never ibcen seen before ready for uervlco
In American waiters.
The Atlantic ) squadron , now under the or
ders of Admiral Slcard , with headquarters nt
Tctugau , and a telegraphic addresa ut Key
'Wrat. ' IB made up of the battlrv > hlps
Indi-T'i , Iowa and Massachusetts , the
rcond-clnsa battleships Maine and Texas ,
the monitor Terror , the armored
cruisers New York nnd tlrooklyn , the cruls-
era Detroit nnd Montgomery , and the torpedo
boras Cushlng. Dupont , Ericsson , Fcote and
P.Tter. with the dynamite cnilrer Vcsuvluo
nnd the little dlspntch boat Fern.
Thcro Is not a 'back ' number In the fleet.
With the exception of the Gushing torpedo
b"at , which was put Into service In 1S90 ,
. I'ot a rihlp In the llfrct Ins been In commls-
' 'fl'.on ' for flvo years. The sixteen lighting
machines are manned 'by ' 337 office ru nnd
8,831 'men ' , besides the mnrlno ? . The bat
teries of the heavier shlro arc simply tre
mendous. Whcci In action the fleet will bo
throwing shells frcm seventy-eight rilled
Ktin.s , wl h an addition of fifty rapid-firing
rlflfts. All1 tha ! Is for long rar.go 'business ,
nnd ! ' In addition to the secondary batteries
o' low caliber guns. The torpedo fleet Ib
nrniod with fifteen elghtecn-lneh White-head
tc.rpedopj , and the ships themselves are
fl''od with tubes for sending out twenty-
tbreo more , making a ttal cffc"livc battery
of twenty-three marine engines , besides the
Vosuvltiu , mounting three dynamite gur.a.
RKSUME3 A FORMER PRACTICE.
It was evident that the decision to send
the Mnlno to Havana for a visit W-PJJ not ar
rived a' hastily from the events that pre
ceded the nnuouncOiiicnt. For some tlmo
pact the administration cfllclals have boon
cf the opinion that a mistake wea made by
the preceding administration In the very
'beginning ' of the Cuban sitiinllon In deciding
that nn excessive caution and an over
weening regard for the sensibilities of the
Spanish republic demanded the abandonment
of the practice , which had bo&n punrjotl by
our navy In 'the ' previous four years , ot n nd-
Ins war chips nt Intervals on crul.jca through
the Went Indies , with frequent stops at Ha
vana. It Is not regarded as con
fident with our national prldo that this
notion , common to all maritime na
tions , should have been abandoned or
suspended nnd Itas believed that If it had
been corshtcntly adhered to there never
would have been compla'.nt of the move
ments of our ships from Spaniah sources.
The Qrltlah nnd nil nations have exere'aed
the right to maintain at least a small naval
toi'oo ct ports Inhublte I by any considera
ble number of their cltl/ons when there
were any olgna of trouble that threatened
thcmstlves or their property. Therefore ,
the adinlu'Htratlon ' oomo tlmo ago came to
tiio conclusion that It would take steps to
restore the old order of things and allow
our war ships to crul-io freely and touch
fuban parts ns r.oon ns the change could bo
msdo without leading to misconstruction
nnd without being Interpreted as a war
incamiri1 , when , nn a matter of fact , nothing
wan further from the Intentions of the pres
APPROACHED HY D130-RERS.
Thn first movement In thi ) direction of the
old practice was made last fall before the
assembling ot ccngicss , when Secretary
1/cr.i ; announce ! through the Associated
J'rt\ his purpose to send thn entire North
Atlantic squadron to the Tortugas harbor for
their winter evolutions , which for seven : !
years past , or s'nce the beginning of the
Cuban Insurrection , had been 'performed
wtti ! dinioiilty under all kinds of discourag
ing ( ondltlons cf wind and weather off the
Cl'Csap'tnko cnprs. ThU movement being re
ceived with equanimity , the next step for
ward was taken when some rf our llttlo
iunlo.iU ; were sent to cruise In the West
incl.cs. the Wilmington and the
/ Annapolis now being In those waters. It
rnly remained to Mind ono of our sliX > s to
Havana to completely restore the old prac-
) tl e. Naturally thl < i was a moro delicate
( step tb.ni tied been called fir praviousty and
It ttvs not until thn administration bid
FaiUfled It/elf that conditions In Havana
hail quieted down and resumed the tiormal
ptato that existed before tVo recent military
riot nrjaliist ( ho nowHrapers that it wan
deemed tlnitly to make the las' move. This
tlcMclslui was not reached without consider
ation of all thu results that mUlit follow.
The Spanish minister. Dupuy de Lome , was
nu early cnllur at thu Stnto department ,
his purpoHo being to adviio with the ollU-lals
relative to the negotiation for n reciprocity
j _ treaty for Cuba under the terms of the
Y present tariff nJ. This purpose In Itself
' may be regarded ns an evidence of the con-
fldein'i ) of both parties In the security of
* the outlook. After his visit , ns Secretary
Day repaired to do White house , there wan
a iioubla gathering around thu pro dcnt ,
Including Secretary hong of the navy , .Sec
retary MvKcnna and G on oral Miles , the
commanding general ot the army. All rail-
f crs were denied nccrcs to thn president's
nrm. much to tholr chagrin , this being tie !
< My of the \\ec-k that it most largely assigned
to the reCHitlon of congressional calleis.
Tlio rnufcfcnco lasted for nearly tci liour and
when | t broke ty It VMS with eviry ovl-
/ , den'-o of confldonco In the pcacojul outlook
f < bat the nieinbcm dliosrsed. To Secretary
I * Long WOB catrutteil the rtuty of making , n
I ( lu'jllc ntatoiiiont rcgardlnj ; the Maine's
orders and the reaeoua therefor.
SPANISH MINISTER NOT ALARMED.
At the Spanish legation nothing \vaa
known of the order for tbe Maine to proceed
to Havana. Mlnliter do Iximo said thai
even In case It vras true It portended
nothing serious. It was perfectly In accord
with usuago for war uhlp.i ot two friendly
powers to enter ami leave each other' *
ports ; the war ships ot Spain had visited
American ports on complimentary missions
three limes In as many years , and If there
had not been an American war ship In
Havana In the sumo length of tlmo It was
merely because the United States govern
ment had not ordered ono there.
As to the pooalblo consequences ot the
Maine's cppearanco at Havana at this time
the minister expresses himself not at all
uneasy. Thcro waa no doubt , ho said , of the
conservative behavior of the loyal Spanish
people In Havana and elsoxvhero and the
only remote contingency which might lead
to unpleasant consequences was some overt
act on thotxirt of the Insurgent sympathizers
committed with a hcye of embroiling Spain
ctid the United States In Just such an In
cident iis happened with the Baltimore's crow
during the Insurrection In Chill.
In response to an Inquiry the minister gild
that It waa not customary and a part ot a
diplomatic usage for ono country to notify
tfio diplomatic representatives of another
country that It Intended to send a war vessel
to the waters of their nation.
The atntement of Minister e Lome makes
It apparent that the Spanish government will
not regard the dispatch of the Maine to
Havana as a hostile act and equivalent tea
a breach of the friendly relations between
Uio two countries.
At the headquarters of the Cuban junta
In thla city there was some surprise ex
pressed at the explanation given at the
State department. lAs far as the conditions
were concerned , It ww affirmed by Senor
I'alma that they were today the same as
when the war broke out. The Interpreta
tion generally put nt the Junta on the
State department's action was that It might
bo an offset to the action ot Germany lu
sending two war ships to Havana.
The Maine , which has been selected tt >
niako the trip to Havana , Is a battleship of
the second class and la regarded as one of
the test nhlps In the now navy. It wad
built nt the Ilrooklyn navy yard and Is 1118
feet long , 57 feet broad , 21.G fe t mean
draught nnd C.6S2 tons displacement. It has
two ten-Inch vertical turrets nnd two mili
tary masts and Its motive power Is furnished
by twin screw , vertical , triple expan
sion cnglnea , having a maximum
horse power of 3.2U3 , capable
of making a t > peed of 17.45 knots. It car
ries four ten-Inch and six six-Inch brccch-
Ic-.itilnK 'guns ' In the main 'battery ' and seven
Mx-roundcrs nnd eight one-pounder rapid-
llrlng giin.j . and four Callings In itssrcomlary
'battery ' and four whltchoad torpeJoo ? .
READY FOR .ANY EMERGENCY. '
Whlld administration officials miss no op
portunity of declaring their 'belief of pence
It may 'bo noted ns ! a matter of Interest thai
thu United States has tow adjomblod near
Key West .the . mcst formidable lleot of war
ships that lias been gotten together In our
homo wa'tora for many years.
It Is made up of the North Atlantic squad
ron under the command of Admiral Sicard ,
flagship New York. llrat-class battleships
Iowa , Indiana , Massachusetts , second-class
battleships iMalne and Texas , cruisers De
troit nnd Montgomery , dispatch boat Fern
and the torpedo boat flotilla , composed of
the dishing. Ericsson , Dupont and Porter ,
which will bo reinforced In a few days by
the Footo. The big protected cruiser
Brooklyn , almost equal to a battleship ,
Is fitting out at the New York ni-vy yarn's ,
and Captain Cock , who commands the
ship , was at the Navy department this
morning , expecting to sail the latter part
of this week to Join Admiral Slcard's squad
ron. The gunboat Nashville nnd the trn- !
ing ship 'Essex ' are at Port Royal , S. C. ,
within easy call , ani thn entire navy may
be said to.be In a state of preparedness that
Is gratifying to the officials in view of the
limited resources pkccd In their hands by
Minister do Lame calle-d again at the
State department at 3 o'clock In pursuit of
Information concerning the movements of
the Maine.He asked and was freely per
mitted ts sec the order sent to Adml.ol Slc
ard directing t'jo Malno to proceed to Hav
ana. The Malno had Just Joined the North
Atlantic squadron and for t'.ils reason nil

The fact that the Spanlah minister was

tion that thcro Is nothing of a thrcatcn.'ug
or bellicose nature In them.

SAVANNAH , Ga. , Jan. 24. Colonel Barr ,
Judge advocate , succeeded In getting before
the Carter court martial today the famous
letter of Rngl eer A. S. Cooper to Captain
C. E. Gillette , In whleh he- stated tint Cap
tain Carter was an extremely bright uml
even brilliant olllcer , and had deue a great
deal of creditable work In tills district.
Captain Carter , he said , Is also an ambitious
man , and It was h'a ambition , he feared ,
which had got him I'.ito ' trouble. "He has
yielded to temptation , " said the letter , "and
bis proLably allowed the contractoro ( or
particular contractor ) to do aa they like In
exchange for their Influence and power 13
beast him alang. "
The cnly real wrong done eo far as the
government Is cc-nccrned , ho said , Is that
the co.-.tractors have been paid one-third or
ono'half more for the work than they aliouM
have received. The mischief Is not serious ,
the letter said , because the work has been
\\c'l done. Mr. Cooper also credited hlnuelf
with much of the good results that had been
attained. His letter was an argument to
dissuade Captain Gillette , from Laving an
Investigation of the charges made.

WASHINGTON , Jan. 24. Propjsed annexa

reviewed -by Mr. Morgan .today whllo speak
ing to a question of personal privilege. The
Alabama ocnator had ( been represented as
saying In executive sorion that ex-Prcal-

annexation. This called out a denial from
Mr. Cleveland , and In support of his original
statement Mr. Morgan addressed the senate
at great length.
Ono of the features ot the session was
an elaborate Bpccch 'by ' Mr. Turplo ( Ind. ) In
support ot the Teller resolution.
The pension appropriation bill was eallo.l
up and debated for nearly thrco hours , but
was not passed , the senate adjourning until

by Mr. Allen to the pending iblll.
