|BATTLESHIPS FOR NEWLY ORGANIZED PACIFIC FLEET.|
Three battleships and six armored cruisers of the first-class are the warships in sight for the nucleus of the consolidated United States commands in the Pacific ocean, which are hereafter to be known as the Pacific fleet. The battleships are the Oregon (BB-3) and the Wisconsin (BB-9), these two being out of commission, but could be gotten ready in a short time, and the Nebraska (BB-14), nearing completion at Seattle. The armored cruisers are the West Virginia, the Colorado and Pennsylvania and Maryland, now afloat, and the California and the South Dakota, nearly completed at San Francisco.
