The Arc was well under w^ay when discovered• and as'there are no ar- rnngcments for nghtlng a big flr .f when the plant ahnt down, the mine offlcia'a could do little more than watch their plant bum.

The first calculation gave (he perceut .Tses of the various thips based entirely ujion the number of hits and without particular regard to the rapid ily of fire or to the caliber of the guns These elements are of first importance and It is patent that la battle a quick firing gun. throwing a shell of large caliber and weight, would be more effective than II slower cr light caliber gun. - 'I sl^WfIV ^avaI experts have rearranged the naerit list oi the fiect on the basis not only of the number of hits, but also, to a certain estent. the rapidity of hit ting, and the proportionate weight of the lirojpctile.'!. in making public this uew order, the deii.irtnient explains the comparatively low scores raad«i liy some of the vessels are accounted for by the fact thr.l they came on the range at a much greater distance from the lartcet than that assigned to them. .As promulgated today the merit list Is as follows: Georgia, Connecticut. Virginia. Pennsylvania. .Maine. Kentucky, Wi-.5t VirjUnla. Maryland, Alabama. Kcarsarsc, I.,onl.siana, llliniirs. Ohio. Hliode Island.

For example, the Missouri began firing at a distance of nearly a mile greater than Its assigned ranze, the fllinnis at 1,200 yards and the Louisiana at 900 yards greater.
