BB-9 Wisconsin 3.35k RUSHING THE WISCONSIN (BB-9)
Work on the powerful battle-ship Wisconsin is progressing rapidly at the Union Iron Works of this city. The Wisconsin is of 11,500 tons displacement, being of the same size and type as the Iowa (BB-4), Kearsarge (BB-5), Kentucky (BB-6) and Alabama (BB-8). She is designed for a first-class modern battle-ship. Within a few months the great vessel will be launched. Should the emergency of war arise the contractors might be able to complete the work of construction in advance of the time appointed. Irving M.Scott remarked yesterday that no orders had been received from the Navy Department to hasten the work on the ship. The large force of men engaged in building the Wisconsin could be increased should occasion arise for rapid construction.

BB-53.65kWILL CHRISTEN THE WISCONSIN (BB-9).
The Daughter of the Badger State Who Will Name the New Battleship.
MISS MADGE E. THOMPSON will have the honor of christening the battleship Wisconsin, now building at the Union Iron Works. She is described as a beautiful young woman of rare attainments and a great favorite in the social circles in which she moves. She is the daughter of A. E. Thompson, and was born twenty years ago in Princeton, Wis. Governor Sconeld has known her almost from infancy, and conferred the distinction upon her because of the strong personal friendship existing between her father and himself. The Wisconsin will be launched in a month or two.

BB-9 Wisconsin 151k FIRST PHOTOGRAPH EVER TAKEN OF THE U. S. BATTLESHIP WISCONSIN (BB-9).
The battleship Wisconsin is coaling up in Mission Bay and if the work is completed today she will take a spin around the bay Monday and if everything works well will leave for Port Oxford. Captain Pillsbury of the Pacific Mail Company will command the big warship until she is turned over to the Government. At Port Oxford she will be dry-docked and will thus have a trial trip on the Sound.
The Wisconsin and Iowa (BB-4) are moored close to each other off the Union Iron Works. The Wisconsin is the larger vessel by 1000 tons displacement, and seems to be a far more formidable fighting machine than the Iowa. The latter is battle-scarred, however, and the Wisconsin has yet to be tried.

United States fleet 611k The battleship underwent repairs and alterations until 11 August 1902. She then conducted gunnery exercises off Tacoma and Seattle, Wash., before she returned to the Puget Sound Navy Yard on 29 August for further work. She remained there until 12 September, when she sailed for San Francisco, en route to Panama.
Wisconsin (BB-9) as flagship, Pacific Squadron-with Rear Admiral Silas Casey embarked, arrived at Panama, Colombia, on 30 September 1902, to protect American interests and to preserve the integrity of transit across the isthmus. Casey offered his services as a mediator in the crisis that had lasted for three years and invited leaders of both factions-conservatives and liberals to meet on board Wisconsin. Over succeeding weeks, through October and into November, prolonged negotiations ensued. Ultimately, however, the warring sides came to an agreement, and signed a treaty on 21 November 1902. The accord came to be honored, in Colombian circles, as "The Peace of Wisconsin." When Rear Admiral Henry Glass, Admiral Casey's successor as Commander in Chief, Pacific Squadron, wrote his report to the Secretary of the Navy for fiscal year 1903, he lauded his predecessor's diplomatic services during the Panama crisis. "The final settlement of the revolutionary disturbance," Glass wrote approvingly, "was largely due to his efforts."
