. Description of Vessel.
',1'h launch of the Dreadnought, the
largest and most powerful battleship of
the world's navlea, mark the firm stage
in what the British admiralty claim aa the
greatest achievement in naval eonstrue
llon. On October I, 1905, only a few daj-a
ivr four month ago, work waa com-
menced at Portsmouth on the vuaset. the
"rat of what la to be known as the Dread
nought claaa.. The proiniae was made then
that It would be launched within six
months.' Tho admiralty has more than
made good their bosst and Britishers have
nether cause for pride. In their navy.
Another- twelve months, all suing well,
the Dreadnought will be commissioned and
loin the Atlantic fleet, thue beating all
previous records In battleship building by
fix months There are. two reasons why
work Is being rushed on the Dreadnought.
One Is the great saving In cost, hut th
chief reason Is that the ship Is to some
extent an experiment, and It Is desired to
give It a good trial before commencing
construotlon on any more of Its' class.
Ureal Britain, It will be remembered, was
the only power having attaches or ob
server on the Japanese ships during the
Russo-Japanese war, while expert British
. constructors- were given every opportunity
of learning where in the ships of Japan
proved weak or strong, as the case might
le. These men were busy from start to
finish of the war, and Immediately after
the battle of the Sea of Japan came home
with their data, which was aubtnltted with
suggestions, to a special committee, on
which sat not only the most experienced
naval experts, but the director of naval
instruction, Lord Kelvin, and a number
nf the leading private ship builders. The
Dreadnought la the outcome of their de
liberations, an embodiment of the leasons

tpparently Invincible, capable at one dls
fharge of Its guns of throwing with un

Greatest I.eaal Contest la History May
Re Precipitated by Rate
WASHINGTON, Feb. 10. With all sorts
of compromises rumored, the senate com
mittee on interstate commerce today re
sumed consideration of railroad rate bills, j
The rupture In the committee yesterday
was smoothed over, temporarily at iVtst. I
Senator Clapp, however, was not present
today. ' I
Certain opponents of the house bill have i
suggested an amendment which provide
that courts may determine the lawfulness
of a rate fixed by the commotion which
would amount to a test proceeding and
have a bearing on all subsequent orders
of the commissioner. In effect this would
mean that after the constitutionality of
the powers given the commission had been
determined by the. highest court nothing
would stand in the way of execution of
further order Issued by the commission
In accordance with this construction., The
railroads, of course, would have the right
of any litigant to conteat order which
they believed to be unjust, but this would
not obstruct the continuance of the orders
on Bny ground except their lawfulness.
Courts would review the reasonableness
of rates In the manner permitted by the
house bill. This proposed amendment Sen
ator Aldrlch Is said to favor. It is a com
promise only in that it provides for the
determination of tho constitutionality of
the bill before Its provisions are enforced.
It Is believed generally that If adopted It
would result In the greatest legal contest
In the history of the courts.
Senator Tillman offered an amendment to
exempt Pullman cars nnd cxprcrs com
panies. He said that in view of the un
certainty as to whether they would be li
eluded In the definition or transportation
lines, he would offer the amendment ti
make certain that they would not be.' No
vote was taken on the amendment today.
Republican members of the committee,
with the exception of Senators Dolilver
and Clapp, who are committed to the house,
bill, today held an extended conference
following the meeting of the committee.
They endeavored to draft an amendment
providing for the review of ordera of the
Interstate Commerce commission, which
would be likely to receive the favorable
consideration of opponents of a feature
of that character. When the committee
meets on Monday these members expect
to offer an amendment In terms similar to
the provisions of the Esch-Townsend bill,
as It passed the house. They expect to
show that no question has been raised
against the review feature until this see
sion. and if with that argument they can
not obtain favorable notion In the com
mittee they announce they will appeal to
.the senate, .

who was shot bv a woman In his office In
Sebsstnpul ycterdsy, to the effect thst his
wounds are not dangerous. Rear Admiral
Orlgorovltch has assumed command of the
Black sea-flet In succession to Chouknln.
According to the morning papers and sub
sequent dispatches from 8cbnstopol. Pn"
Arming the press accounts, the attending
surgeons are confident that Chouknln will
recover. The most severe wound Is In his
breast, from which the bullet has not been
extracted. The other wounds are In the
right shoulder and both legs. His assail
ant, who was shot and killed by an orderly
who rushed to the admiral's assistance. Is
believed, like the murderess of Lieutenant
General Sakharoff, the former war minis
ter, and the assassin of General Shuvalnff,
prefect of police of Moscow, to have been
an emissary of the St. Petersburg group
Woman Sot Identified.
The woman has not been Identified, but
It Is known thst she arrived at Sebaatopol
February 7 and registered at a hotel under
tho nam" of Krupnltakai. She was wall
dres.-ted, was quiet In her manner and at
tracted no attention. At 3 o'clock yester
day afternoon the woman appeared at he
official residence of Admiral Chouknln and
sent In her card, saying she wss a daughter
of a rear admiral who was an old ac
quAintunce of Chouknln at St. Petersburg,
nnd requested an Interview, fpon entering
the admiral's office she drew a rapid Arc
pistol and Ared four shots at Chouknln
with deliberate aim, each bullet reaching
the mark. She then turned to flee, but
was killed by the orderly. Chouknin exhib
ited remarkable nerve and continued to
Issue orders even while being carried to
bed and during the examination of the
surgeons. Later lie received personal
friends who came to sympathize with him.
The news of the attempt on Chouknln'
life created great excitement nmong the
sailors at Sebastopol, a large proportion
of whom are sullen and continuslly on the
verge of mutiny. The revolutionists at
Sebastopol attempted - to organise a de
monstration, but were not successful.
Crime Waa Political.
The crime, beyond doubt., wus politics!.
Chouknln had long been a marked man on
account of hi activity as commander o
the Black sea fleet In repressing disorders.
When the sentence Imposed on the sailors
for psrtlolpallon In the Odessa mutiny were
before him for review formal notice was
served on him to the effect that if he ap
proved the death sentences he would share
the same fate. Intimations that' the terror
ists were merely waiting for favorable
opportunity to kill him have reached the
admiral several times since. The hand of
the terrorist is now raised against a!l
classes of officialdom, military and civil,
which are called upon to curb the revolu
tionary movement. Various manifestations
have taken place In the last three month
and a number of officials have been killed
on account of the prominence In subduing
the agrarian uprising. The army has con
tributed General Oriasnoff, formerly chief
of staff of the viceroy of the Caucasus, who
was killed bv a bomb at TIAIs January 7i
last ; Colonel LIsHOvski, formerly commander
of the Seventy-eighth Infantry division, who
was murdered recently, and many subordi
nate officers; snd among the governors
whose lives have been attempted or who
have been killed are: General Bogdano-
vltch, formerly governor general of the l"fa
province, who was killed by the revolution
ists In December last ; M. Kilngenberg. gov.
ernor of Mogniierr. wno was anot by a
woman November last, and General Kour
loff, governor of Minsk, whose life was at
tempted by the throwing of a bomb January
last as he was leaving a church.
Shadow of Terror.
The shadoa- of terror hangs over those
who are on the list of "enemie of liberty,"
high on which are the names of Minister
Durnovo, Vice Admiral Douhaeoff, governor
general of Moscow, and General Sollogub,
governor general of the Baltic provinces.
Every precaution has been taken to pro
tect them, but history has shown that the
Ingenuity of the terrorists is sure to be
successful, sooner or later.
Mme. Douhasoff, who Is a sister of M.
BlpUgutne, the former minister of the In

alarmed for the admiral's safety that ha

It Is nrtlceable that a large proportion
of 'he recent terrorists" sentences have
been executed by women, who are among
the moat devoted members of the Aghtlng
