Washington, Sept. 17.-The favorable outcome of what might have proved a very serious accident to the unlucky battle ship Texas caused general satisfaction to the officials of the navy department Thursday morning and they.- were greatly relieved after the suspense of the night, the reports of the ship's striking on bottom known to be BO rocky as Newport harbor having given rise to considerable fears that the vessel would be ruined. The career of the Texas ever since'she existed only on paper had been so checkered that the superstitious thought her end had I eome. Her collapse in the Brooklyn dry-flock last year followed ny the I "development o£ structural weakness" I on her trial trip, caused her to be sent to. the Norfolk navy yard last January where her immersed hull was thoroughly rebuilt, costing- over $200,000. During her six months' stay in the. dry-dock her frames and bottom were radically strengthened and it was only about three weeks ago that she was pronounced complete and sent to join Admiral Bunco's squadron at Tompkinsville the day before Li Hung Chang arrived in America. The cost including repairs up to this time has exceeded $-1.000,000, although she hud been originally designed to cost but $2,500,000.' To locnte the responsibility of Wednesday's unfortunate occurrence will be the immediate effort of the navy department.- A court of inquiry .will promptly investigate the occurrence. Xew Harbor has been the scene of similar accidents to warships, DYNAMITER IN LONDON. Bdward Hell Arra7|tned_Say« HI. Real Name Ji Edward J. Ivory. , London.
