' Til expert are 'at present considering
the best general type form to the re
malntng authorlied dreadnaughts, while
experiments are being made Kith a view
o their protection under the . water
against the submarine which has proven
deadly In the present European war.
'The . launching of this big dread-
naught," Mr. Daniels added, "is an event
which tells better than can be spoken by
any words the steady and orderly growth
of the navy. Within the last year I have
bad the pleasure of witnessing at Qulncy
the launching of the Nevada, at Camden
of the Oklahoma and at Newport News

the Arlxona. This follows close upon the
completion of our two latest dread-
naughts, the New Torfc and the Texas.
To Start an California.
"As soon as the Arlxona leave the
mays we will here begin actual construc
tion work upon the California, much of
the material for which already has been
contracted for, and whloh will be
equipped with electrio propulsion, being
the first of the modern dreadnaughta of
any country to utilise this recently tested

It could go more than 3,000 mile f arthen
This contemplates .using only ks normal

California .will be able to steam about
twice as far as the 'Wyoming."

PARIS, June . The following official
account ot an engagement between a
French and a Oerman aeroplane was
given out In Parts this afternoon. "An
enemy aeroplane having been observed
ever our lines at Aspach, near Thann, In

geants took wing and mounted. In thirty
minutes to a height of 10,600 feet At
this altitude he engaged his enemy with
a machine gun.
"To this fire the German replied with
his machine gun and one of his bullets
struck the motor of the French machine.
The sergeant again ascended, to a posi
tion above his adversary and fired. three
hands, ot cartridge. " During the third
round the German aviator was seen by
the Frenchman suddenly, to throw his
arms Into the air. His machine then
begsn to fall and It came down like a
stone Inside of our line.
'The French aviator came down under
control. , Once on . the ground he ex
amined his machine. He found that
bullets fired by his antagonist had per- j
forated his cylinder,- penetrated the steel i
shields at the back of the motor and
riddled his' sails. The Frenchman him
self was slightly wounded in the neck."
