"Sub-officers in the navy, such as gunners etc., are known as petty officers. They correspond to no-commissioned officers in the army. Many a domestic circle was broken up by the sacrifice of life aboard the Maine, but many thousands of fellow-citizens are ready to sacrifice their life's blood to revenge the loss. ."
