"There has been a i -reat deal of criticism.' he said, "of the ships of the American Navy: but you needn't loso any sleep about them. Ship for ship, man for man and gun for gun they are the equal of any Navy In the worlil. give you my word," he added with a smile, "that the only thing which wor rled me on the trl)) around the honi was the measles and the mumps and a few o'her infantile complaints of that sort which broke out among the men.
