pre WWI four stack destroyer

Frustrating mystery.  This ship was photographed off the Mid Atlantic coast (roughly near the Delaware) in August 1909.  Now, I thought it might be one of the three Truxtun class destroyers, the only ships that fit her profile even remotely (at least to my untrained eye).  But two of them were in the Pacific at that time; and the third was supposedly inactive.  And they don’t really quite seem to fit; the length of the stern and the close placement of the stacks is a bit off.

Any guesses anyone?

Ha! I think I found a possibility: the two Lawrence class torpedo boat destroyers.  Though it looks like something got changed on some of the deckwork, the stack placement is right. Furthermore, the USS Macdonough was in the right place at the right time!
