“That for the purpose of further increasing the Naval Establishment of the United States, the President is hereby authorized to have constructed, by contract, one armored cruiser of about eight thousand tons displacement of the general type of armored cruiser numbered two (New York), to cost, exclusive of armament, not more than three million five hundred thousand dollars, excluding any premium that may be paid for increased speed and the cost of armament. The contract for the construction of said cruiser shall contain provisions to the effect that the contractor guarantees that when completed and tested for speed, under conditions to be prescribed by the Navy Department, it shall exhibit a speed of at least twenty knots per hour; and for every quarter knot of speed so exhibited above said guaranteed speed, the contractor shall receive a premium over and above the contract price of fifty thousand dollars; and for every quarter knot that such vessel fails of reaching said guaranteed speed, there shall be deducted from the contract price the sum of fifty thousand dollars. In the construction of said vessel all the provisions of the act of August third, eighteen hundred and eighty-six, entitled “An act to increase the Naval Establishment," as to material for said vessel, its engines, boilers, and machinery, the contract under which it is built, the notice of and proposals for the same, the plans, drawings, specifications therefor, and the method of executing said contract, shall be observed and followed, and said vessel shall be built in compliance with the terms of said act, save that in all its parts said vessel shall be of domestic manufacture. If the Secretary of the Navy shall be unable to contract at reasonable prices for the building of said vessel, then he may build such vessel in such navy-yard as he may disignate.

(34) Also one sea-going coast-line battle ship, designed to carry the heaviest armor and most powerful ordnance, with a displacement of about nine thousand tons, to have the highest practicable speed for vessels of its class, and to cost, exclusive of armament and of any premiums that may be paid for increased speed, not exceeding four million dollars; one harbor-defense doubleturret ship of the monitor type, with a displacement of about seven thousand five hundred tons, to have the highest practicable speed for vessels of its class, and to cost, exclusive of armament and of any premiums that may be paid for increased speed, not exceeding three million dollars, and if said ship is built on the Pacific Coast the Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to allow three per centum on the cost thereof to the contractor, in addition to the contract price, to cover the cost of the transportation of material used in the construction thereof; four light-draft gunboats of from eight hundred to one thousand two hundred tons displacement, with the highest practicable speed for vessels of their class, and to cost, exclusive of armament and of any premiums that may be paid for increased speed, not exceeding four hundred and fifty thousand dollars each; and six torpedo boats, at a cost of not exceeding one hundred and ten thousand dollars each; and not more than two of said torpedo boats shall be built at one establishment.

(35) In the construction of all said vessels, following the provision for the construction of the one armored cruiser of about eight thousand tons displacement, the provisions of the act of August third, eighteen hundred and eightysix, entitled An act to increase the Naval Establishment,shall be observed and followed in the same manner that the provisions of said act are applied to the construction of said armored cruiser; and in the contracts for the construction of each of said vessels, besides the armored cruiser before named, such provisions for minimum speed and for premiums for increased speed and penalties for deficient speed may be made, subject to the terms of this act, as in the discretion of the Secretary of the Navy may be deemed advisable.
