THE FRENCH NAVY. Paris, Monday.—The Temps states that the Supreme Council of the Navy has decided that the number of battleship units forming the fighting line of the French Navy shall be fixed at 45: The effective life of a battleship is to be fixed at 20 years. In consequence, it is pointed out, the existing French battleships which would form part of the fighting line in 1919 would be the six battleships of the Republic type and the six of the Danton type, to which would be added the four armoured cruisers of the Gambeta type, together with the armoured cruisers Edgar Gainet, Holdeck, Roussano, and Ernest Renan. The construction, armament, and equipment of the new battleships that will be required will cost three thousand million francs, to be spread over 10 financial years, but from this amount must be deducted a sum annually voted in the Naval Estimates for new construction (120 million francs) and for equipment.—Renter.
