While if! war doKi, resplendent, with great frowning armaments nnd ahinirig decks but all unknown to history-are palling with flags afl.ving and hand* playing from one Pacific coast city to another, toasted by thon- , Hands, a sad "little" warship here at Norfolk \H tugging restlffmly at her moorings, neglected, unnoticed, forgotten. If x battleship has any feelings, as Admiral Evans once declared they had, (hen the pride uf this one that WHS "not, good enough 1 ' fo go on parade has I.een cut to the quick. I am referring to the Iowa. One.; the Iowa was good enough for "Admiral Bob." That was only ten years ago, too, at Santiago. It made history down there, if you remember, in the midnt ot shrieking, bursting shells, sinking bints and dying men. ".Admiral Mob" was proud of the Iowa that day. Me .stood on the bridge and he wasn't ashamed, particularly after tho roaring had ceased and Admiral Ccrvera and the other Spanish officers came aboard the Iowa and surrendered. If "Fighting Bob" could liavo times as effective as the Oregon! The advance in perfection is due to speed, increased armor, improved machinery throughout, increased ( rapidity of fire, improved mechanism j for handling the guns, more guns. i better" marksmanship and improved methods of training gunners.

Tho Iowa seemed to be pulsating from bow to stern with chagrin and humiliation. All of which brings out the fact one may look in vain in tho roster of Admiral Evans's fleet for names made famous in the Spanish war. Where is the famous Oregon? It is not on parade. Vet it waa the most talked of ship in the navy during the war! Inquiry at the navy department brought out the information the Oregon is out, of commission at tho Puget Sound navy yard. And whore i re the Massachusetts, tho Indiana ind tho Texas? They were well known 10 years ago. Tho fact is, Spanish warships are ill back numbers. They were not good enough to make tho Pacific cruise. In tho first place they were too slow. Tho best nuthorties now place tho life of a battleship at 15 yours. For comparison take the Oregon, considered modern 10 years ago, and the Georgia,^recently completed. Tho Oregon develops 819,456 foot- tons of energy in five minutes of firing, and the Georgia 3,927,1751 In other words, tho Georgia Is five 10 acres walnuts, water 180 hours each trade.
