it is denied also that a special

Solar was lormerly the secretary to

point to this fact as one of the great

ot many great inventors. The ap

It is not a matter ul imme'eiiate im
portnaee, but it is interesting to know
the estimate put on the relative
strength ot the Spanish and Ameri
can navies by a competent authority.
The Saturday Review, of London, is
generally recogirzed as unusually
well informed and careful on such
points. In its latest issue it states
that "in mere number of counts fifty
eight, as against America's forty-two.
but the superiority is wholly ficti
tion." It sums up the American
force of battleships and cruisers as
thirty to fourteen lor Spain, the
former all "built since 1SS5," the
latter antiquated." And it con
cludes: "If the worst came, there is
j a chance that the Spaniards might
penetrate the long naval line of eie-
encc along the American shore, and
ome damage be fore they were
overtaken. But that they would very
soon come to a disastrous end in this
-dventtire is no more to he doubted
than that they wou'd from the out
-l U' ''V'v overmatched in
Cuban waiters." Another point of
ill greater sigmfcance is the
unquestioned superiority of the mor-
the Americans. It is not l.oast -
to assert that no American army
ot 200,000 uouid have wasted two
years in futile skirmishing as the
Spimards have m Cuba, and there is
