for its vessels The An napolis tests appeared to be conclusive as to tho merits of the particular nickel steel plate by comparison with the allsteel and compound plates but the Ordnance Bureau lias not yet been erlrely convinced that it should proceed at once to adopt the alloyed plate as tlie standard The plate which was tested was of foroisn manufacture and It may be that even if supply of niukol is obtained the domestic manufac turers cannot succeed in making aualloyed plate that will equal the plate tried at Annapolis or It may be that 1C the successful process is discovered the manufacture will be inordinately expen sive These matters must be determined by experiment Commodore Folger chleC of ihe Ordnance Bureau saysthat it will require several months timo to ascer tain the result Incidentally the experiments which the Bureau will undertake will be directed to an ascertainment of tho value of the nickel steel alloy for structural purposes The European nations have ior some time con templated a test of tho new alloy in this ca pacity Its advocates assort that it will prove far stronger and tougher than steel for this purpose If this should prove to be tho case lighter but equally strong hulls might be constructed for the navy and the result would be more room for boilers and engines and consequently increase In the speed of vessels which is at present the
