In the alow progress of the vessels.

cave hla bureau an opportunity to mako
a careful revision of the general plana of
those vessels, which, ha aaya, will result
in a considerable liupi oteuicnt In th"lr
military value and in their habltablllty.
An entire rearrangement of the echeme for
the stowage of ammunition waa made and
particular attention wes given to an efTi-
clent scheme for coaling.
The ships added ta the navy during the
year were the battleship Illinois, and the
torpedo craft Decatur, Perry, Preble, Bld
tlc, Thoratou and Wilkes.
Admiral Bowles aaya there continues to
be an argent necessity for an Increase In !
the number' of officers of the construction
corps. The principal navy yarda, It, la
tated, have an Insufficient number of of-
duties, this lack ef officer Is particularly
hurtful Juat now In vie1 of the construc
tion of the big battleship Connecticut at
the New York navy yard.
The bureau la now enabled, by co-oper-atton
with the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, to regulate technical educa
tion appropriately and offer students and
their Instructors constant opportunities
for observing the building and repair of
all classes of vessels. .
Admiral Bowles points out that the policy
ot congress has been against the con
struction of new vessels In the navy yards,
and as a result the development and Im
provement ot the yards have not been gen
erally directed toward efficient arrange
ments for shipbuilding. The admiral la ot
the opinion that it should be the policy
of the Navy department so to arrange the
navy yard planta the J tbey will be effi
cient for shipbuilding, which la in reality,
he aaya, one of the moat Important func
tions tbey may be required to perform.
An Interesting portion of the report Is
that In regard to the work of the experi

A number of experiments have been made
' In the basin -during the last year to de

new battleships and armored crullers. It
Is wholly to the basin facilities that the
bureau has been enabled to show that new
armored crullers of the Tennessee class,
displacing 14, COO tons, may be expected ta
make a speed of twenty-two knots an hour
with lees power than the.rrulsera of the
Pennsylvania class, which displaced IS. 680
tone.. Similarly the two pew ls.OOO-ton
battleships of the Connecticut class will
drive appreciably easier at eighteen knota
than the preceding battleships ot 14,848
tons. Thus an Increase of 7 per cent In

over ( per cent In alze in the case of the
armored cruisers haa been accomplished
with an actual reduction of horse-power
necessary to drive them.

COURT ADVERTISES AMERICA
Arbitration Trlbaaal Will Render
Jndsrment In Pins Fond Case
PARIS, Oct 12. Judge William U Pen-
field, of the United States' state depart
ment. Archbishop Rlordsn, of San Fran
cisco, and others, who were present at The
Hague during the reoent aesslons of tho
International court of arbitration, which
heaid lh aiguiueiits in tha Plus fund
case between the United Statea and Mexico,
have arrived here. .
Judge PenOeld aaya the court's decision
may ba rendered during tha week, and
that In all events It will bo given within
the present month.
Judge Penfleld said: v
"I feel confident of a favorable , result.
Inquiries made by members of tho i-ouit
Indicated a tendency favorable to our posi
tion on thla Issue. If this assumption
proves correct. It ta only a question" of
figures to ascertain tha. amount due, which
Is something over a million dollars.
"The court commepted 'upon tha thor
eugbneaa ot the American presentation of
tha case. Tha United States famished
practically the entire evidence. Mexico
furnished practically nothing, not even
copies of the Mexican archlvea In her ex
clusive control, and which were required
under the protocol."
Commenting upon tha broad interna
tional aspecta of The Hague organization,
Judge Penfleld said:
"The American Idea of treating Inter
national arbitration seriously is beginning
to exert lta influence; it promises to over
come European prejudice.
"Another important Influence of Tha
Hague tribunal la that It la acquainting
Europe with real Americanism. The in
ternational arbitration court gives ua our
first opportunity of presenting to the pub
licists and Jurists of the old world our
exalted Ideals concerning the rights ot the
people and that tha function ot govern
ment la the protection of ths Individual."
Archbishop Rlordan is going to Rome.
He will secure In Europe stained glass

H. Kv alias whatever else la handiest,
now languishes In the city Jail of Council
Bluffs, waiting to find out what the United
States government does with a man It shall
convict of using the tnalla to defraud. He
admlta that such conviction seems prob
able, and this view la concurred in by a
number of Insurance companies of Ala
bama, Kansas and Colorado.
The Gardeners of Omaha may also hold
that view later, but at present is non
committal, because It hasn't fully Investi
gated returns that Hermann haa made to
It In the last three weeks, during which
time he has acted as Its agent.
R. W. Tarklngton, general superintend
ent of the bridge line, might have been
another Interested party If A. P. Fred
erick of Denver, an Inspector In the United
States mail service, bad waited long enough
to let Hermann learn the back atroke that
Tarklngton uses In signing hla name.
Inspector Frederick and Detective Calla
han of Council Bluffa arrested Hermann at
7:30 Sunday morning aa ha was coming
downstairs from hla room in the Creston
house, a hostelry of the Iowa city. The
capture waa the end of a game ot hide and
seek that has been In progress some weeks.
Early In September the government re.
celved complaints from Insurance compa
nies, the names of which are not yot given
out, but among which ara supposed to be
the Union Accident Stock company and the
American Guarantee Inveatment company
of Denver, and the Natlqpal Benevolent
society of Kansaa City, Mo., that an Otto
Hermann was using the malls to defraud.
Working- Mlnlna; Camps.
The government -gave the matter Into the
hands of Inspector E. L. McKee of the Kan
sas City division, who, upon Investigation,
is alleged to have discovered that Hermann
was working mining camps and some other
communities where large numbers of men
were employed. He sold, It is Bald, acci
dent Insurance to persons that did not ex
ist, forged names to fit them, forged the
came ot the mine superintendent of each
camo. aa endorsement on the papers, and
collected bis commissions promptly from
the Insurance company employing him.
Inspector McKee, upon learning this and
ascertaining that Hermann was then in
Pittsburg, Kan., under the name ot Adolph
Heller, went to the latter place In company
with an officer of the victimized National
Benevolent society. Hermann, it la said
saw them first and decamped. Later he was
located at Louisville, Colo., and Inspector
Frederick of the Denver division was put
on the trail. He found Hermann at Louis
ville, operating under the alias of C. E
Mlllsap and atoutly maintaining that Mlll-
eap waa hla name. The Inspector waa Don
vluced he had the right man; but the de
scription did not tally, and In order to make
certain ha determined to bring to Louisville
from Denver R. J. Bardwell, vice president
of the American Casualty company, organ
ised In November last, with Hermann aa
Its general manager and later aa tta road
solicitor. Bardwell had told Frederick early
that he knew Hermann to the extent of
$600 advanced htm and never repaid. Fred
erick left Hermann under the eye of the
constable of Louisville and went to Den
ver for Bardwell. The constable's wife had
a heavy washing and aent for htm to come

Into Denver, a distance of twenty-two miles.
and was secreted there until the tfternoon
of October 7, when he left for Omaha, ar
riving here the next morning.
Letter to Woman Gives Tip.
The evening of October 3 he wrote a
letter to Mrs. L. K. Hermann of Denver,
care of the general delivery, and Inspector
Frederick was promptly dispatched bera to
look. up the writer. With the assistance ot
Assistant Postmaster Jamea Woods rd he
discovered that the man was In Council
Bluffs and he crossed the river In pur
suit Saturday evening. With Detective
Callahan of the Council Bluffa force he
rounded up the hotela there and on the
regiater of the Creston house found the
name H. Kurtz, with the letter H bear-
! Ing a telltale resemblance to the Hs Her-
; man was known to make In writing bis
name. When Herman came down In the
morning the officers confronted him, and
hf, recognizing the Inspector, exclaimed,
after he bad recovered his breath:
"Well, you've got me. I don't know bow
you did it, but you've got ma and I'll mako
He waa handcuffed and taken to tha Coun
cil Bluffs jail, there to await the arrival
thla morning of Inspector McKee, who
probably will take htm to Kansaa City, aa
It waa there that the bunt began, and
with that division of the mall service that
the original complaints were placed.
When searched he was found to have a
letter from the Des Moines Street Railway
company, evidently in answer to ad applica
tion for a position. In the same pocket
with this one was another, typewritten, on
a letterhead of the Bridge Line company
and complete except for the signature over
the word "superintendent." Slips found
In the envelope bore many Imitations of
the name, R. W. Tarklngton, and It la the
theory tnat be was planning to forge the
name of the superintendent to the letter,
which was one recommending "H. Kurtx"
aa an old and very efficient detective, long
employed by the Bridge Line company,
- Kxpert to Br "Sent Over."
In the courae of the afternoon Hermann,
who no longer pretended to be any one else,
wrote, in the presence of Inspector Fred
trick, a letter addressed to Mrs. L. K. Haw
thorne, general delivery, Denver, telling her
trie fly that he Is In trouble and "expects
to be Bent over ths road." It was the first
time the name Hawthorne has appeared,
but he gave no explanation concerning It.

WILKESBARRE, Pa., Oct. 12.The Krle
company tonight posted notices at Its col
Uerlea at rittstou requesting all atrlklng
employes to return to work tomorrow.
The company assured all who returned
ample protection. This Is believed to be
the first move on tto part of the coal com
panies to hrenk the strike under tha pro
tection of troops.
SCRANTON. ra., Oct. 13. -This week, it
Is generally believed, r.ill put to a test the
claim of tbe operatnta that they will ba en
abled to start their collieries If given pro
tection and the countef claim of the Mine
Workers, ss express In Wednesday's res
olutions, that tho strikers will not return
to work without concessions, even though
the entire military force of the United
States should be here to protect them.
With a determination to prove their
claim tha operatora have been for tha past
week making a supreme effort to secure
men. That tbey have succeeded to soma
extent Is evidenced by announcements made
with aome poEltiveness that various col
lieries will resume operations In ths course
of a few daya.
Tha Delaware and Hudaon company will
make a start tomorrow morning at tha
Belleville. The Green Ridge Coal company
will open up lta Green Ridge colliery prob
ably tomorrow or the next day. but as
suredly some day this week. Other com
panies say they are figuring on a resump
tion at certain collieries, but decline to
give their location. Claim la also made
on llie upei a tots' side that tni forces at
collieries already working are to ba largely
Increased during the week.
The Mine Workers' leadera continue ta
assert that the military can do nothing
toward Inducing men to return to work, and
that, all who could ba Induced to resume
without concetaions are already back.

Opwrtor' to tp nrt..ST. 'tf "
WASHINGTON, Oct. 12. Little Informa
tion aa to the atrike situation oould ba
obtained today. It la understood tha oper
atora are glad to have their aida of tha
case laid before the president and es
pecially tbe work they are doing to aupply
coal. It la aald they have divided tho
country Into districts and will attempt to
equalize the aupply so that no ona com
munity will suffer; also that tha railroads
will make similar arrangements to handle
soft coal so aa to aupply all who can maka
use of It in place of the anthracite.
The fact, that Mr. Root did not now con
alder hla conference with Mr. Morgan yes
terday ot any significance, seems to be ap
parent, as he ' did not see tba president
today. Senator Quay ot Pennsylvania, how
ever, aaw the president for an hour today
and discussed the strike, but what Informa
tion he conveyed or what auggestlons ha
received cannot be statod. Tbe senator de

No Increase at Wllkesharre.
WILKESBARRE. Pa.. Oct. 12. Nothing
new developed In "the atrike situation to-
j day. Not one soldier was sent out from
the camp located In tbls city. Tonight tt
looks aa though there will be very little
or no Increase in the production of coal
durlug the next week. The miners are aa
firm today In their declarations not to re
turn to work until they get aoma conces
sions aa they have been heretofore.
The appeal Issued yesterday by tha -American
Federation of Labor waa re
ceived with considerable satisfaction by
tho strikers, but there waa considerable
discussion over the paragraph In tha ap
peal wJilch asserted that tbe mlnera were
willing to leave their case In tha handa nf
J. P. Morgan. When Mr. Mitchell's atten
tion, waa called to it last night, he aald
tt was an error. Today he refused to dis
cuss It. It la evident there la some mis
take and that he docs not care to call at
tention to it by talking of the matter.
From conversations with superintendents
and military officers, the calling tor fed
eral troops is a remote possibility. Na
tional guard omcere do not take kindly to
tbe suggestion and say tho state guard
ahould be tried first. Brigadier General
Gpbln aaya If It Is found-the Pennsylvania
guard la not sufficient In numbers to con
trol tbo situation he will favor recruiting
the stale force up to twice Its site or to
the number required to meet tne situation,
just as was done during tha Spanlsh-Amer- ,
