Oct Tracy {s to hare every war vessel now in course of construction completed before he goes out of office at the end ol Harrison's administration. He has been j carrying on a vigorous correspondence the contractors who are furnishing and supplies. Much of the da- lav in building naval vessels has hero- 'o'ore bsen caused by the inability of the manufacturers to get out material promptly. Tilis ba3 keen conspicuously the case with tho steel makers, as H- i Stanced in the alteration of the plan" of the Maine because the armor was not forthcoming on time. The secroury is Lurrying these people aid J.11 b.9 can to expedite his pare of the The next ships to be launched wiU bo i the armored coast defense vessel Mon- terey, at the Union- works, San Fran- cisco, and the armored cruiser Maine, at tho Brooklyn navy yard. It is ex- pected that both these ships will take the water in Novomber, but it will be a long time before either of them is com- pleted, as the armor ia not yet com- menced. The Texas, at Norfolk, seems to be almost abandoned. The two ton cruisers built at Baltimore will be the next launched, and it is hoped they will be followed next summer by the two vessels now on the ways at Brooklyn and Norfolk. Next year sbould also show the launching of the vessel building at Boston: the Naval Academy practice vessel from the yards of Moore Sons, at Elisabeth, N. J., and the two gunboats from j the Bath iron works in Maine. Last of aa late as tbe fall of 1S92, will como tbe big armored cruiser to be constructed by Cramp and bor sister ship in the hands of the Scotta Work on these two ships will have to be pushed to the extreme if they are to be added to the navy during the Tracy regime. Three vessels already launched are awaiting trial. They are tbe New- ark, at Cramp's, and tbe Concord and Bennington, at Chester, Pa. No date bas been flxed for the trial of tbe New- ark. The Concord will probably be tried in a few weeks. Tbe Benning-ton will not be tested for a month yet It seems probable that tbe new steel navy will nert year consist of twenty- seven vessels, of which three will be armored and twenty-four unarmored. In 1893 it is likely that there will be forty first class ships and In 1805 there will not be a single wooden ship com- missioned by this Government This great increase has beea virtually made entirely since 1335. although the Chica- go, Boston.

J-, Oct 7.-This little town, which is tho home of wealthy re- tired ship owners and sea captains, is greatly excited. Sunday nisrht White Caps visited the town and placed th following notice on the front door o John Newman's house: "If you don' discharge your housekeeper before Mon day night wo will make you a visit and whip you within an inch of your life." Why such a notice should bo given to Mr. Newman is more than tho citizens can understand. He is well-known and highly esteemed. The conduct of both himself and housekeeper bas always been considered perfectly proper by their neighbors. The housekeeper has not been discharged._______ Birchall Is Weakening. WOODSTOCK, Ont.

The kill- ing grew out of a political difficulty and was entirely unprovoked.
