I E.xi>I<isions and Ganlirr. One of the greatest problems which ' ronfrniitpd the ordnance experts had to do with the storage of the heavy | charge s of guncolton taken atons to' load till- score of harbor mines which each battleship carries. The solution has been found in the distribution of the deadly explosive In small portions iliroiiKhoul the olllcers quarters. Mule woollen boxes, eighteen Inches huiK and six Inches in depth and briiadth contulnInK several bottles of sunrotton have been placeil about five f«>et apart In the ward room and steer- .iKe dinluK rooms, and even the ofUc- ers" staterooms have been invaded. The effort has lu-en to keep the delicate explosive as far as iKisslble from till' niai;a/.lnes and from the shock of, the hi),- gn«.s. At the sanj,e time it is lielleved that the system of distribution adopted is such that should one portion of the guncotton accidentally explode, it would not set off the general sup])iy. The fire control, which has been installed on the ships. Is a cisual and audible .system of directing the Are of all K"ns in the-ilrst and secundard liaiierie;!. From the forward ligbtiug top the ordnance officer of a ship by squeezin-.; n bulb gives a buzzing sig- to each f-'uti crew whose jiieces he nishe:; brought into action. The range of tlip enemy i.s also flashed upon an indicator. The system was recently tried by the .Maine at tarfiet practice, and a liroadside was fired with the roar of a single gun. The rapidity of American gunfire Is such that the entire supply of ammu- niiion carried by the larger ships would be exhausted in froni twenty to twenty-five minutes. CoaMt CMJes IVant Fleet Washington, Dec. 13.—California's Interest in the coming .visit to her shores of the Atlantic liattleshlp fleet is evidenced by the number of requests which are' being received at the navy department from the sea- cities that the ships tarry for a lime so that the people may have an oiijiortunlty to see them. If practicable it is probable, the desires of the coast cities in California will be complied with. In which event the fleet may stop at San Diego, one of the ports of Los Angeles, at Santa Barbara and Monterey. Notice to Our Customers.
