th launching here today of the auper-
drsadnaught Texas th American navy
counted as It Its proudest possession the
biggest and th most powerful battleship
th world has ever teen. Other nations
are trying desperately or th honor of
owning th greatest warship, but It will
be months after th Texas and Its slater
ship th Nw Tork. which win . be
launched - at tha New Tork 'navy ' yard
la July, have taken the water before
th mooattr ship plsnned te ouulieUhara
and now under construction in. European
shipyards will be water borne. It was
deemed fitting that these two exemplar
at tlte highest skill ef the-shipwright
should bear th aamaa of two warships
which covered themselves with glory dur
ing th Span hh-4merlcajl war. ;
Th Texaa, with ail of Its store aboard
will displace H.s tons, or l.eoo ton

It Is Kt feet long, ninety-five feet two
and . a 'halt Inch beam, so that 'It will
hav almost fifteen feet In spar In' pass
ing through the Panama canal locks. Its
-draft will be twenty-eight feet six Inches
and Its speed twenty-one knots, which
would hav been high speed for cruiser
a few years ago." --
II la a remarkabls fact that 'the XT,
horse power required to maintain this
speed will be developed In the case of
Texss by twin screw vertical, triple ex
pansion engines of th old type, instead
of by turbine, which hav been almei
universally adopted abroad In all naval
construction. This machinery Is Installed
because ef the convict loo of-American
naval 'engineers that the reciprocating
engine la tb moat economical and reliable
for battleship practice,
lit la Merer) Tlaae."1
The Texaa represents soma feature of
Interest entirely apart from It great
sis. In the first place, Its launching
eomea Just about thirteen months from
the date Its keel was laid; a remarkable
performance for American shipwright.
and a practical demonstration of their
ability to-4urn out warships as rapidly
aa any nation In th world under proper
Incentive. - ... r - ,
In the second place th Texas will h-.
tha first ship In tba world to carry four-tea-men
guns. It will hav ten of them
distributed In flv turrets arranged on e,
central line front stem to stem. Th.'
Mggeat guns now afloat la th American
navy are tha thlrteea-lnch rifle of the
famous old Oregon type, while tb best
that tb British navy can do Is to point
to their U.t-lnch guns en their la'teet
battleships. In addition to these monster
gans the new American ship will carry
n less than sixteen five-inch rifle In
place of the little three and four-Inch
guns that were formerly regarded as suf
ficient for th secondary battery. Th:
increasing sis and power of the torpedo
boat destroyers an tba enormous speed
of the chain-lightning cruiser has brought
about this doubling of tha power of the
secondary battery , which moat be relied
upon for very alck -Xjrk 'in meetiug
