©Underwood' &Underwood U.S.S. "NEW HAMPSHIRE" FIRING A BROADSIDE At every broadside of one of our newer dreadnaughts more than eight tons of metal, driven bymore than two tons of smokeless powder, are discharged. Such velocity have the great shells that they would pierce five feet of wrought iron. The salary of the Admiral of the Navy for a year is only a little larger than the cost of one such broadside. One of our new ships has more fighting power than Dewey's whole fleet atManila.
