WASHINGTON, December C.
to Tho Advertiser) The United
State must have a largo navy and must
bo prepared for any chanco of war, if
it Is to preservo its national safety.
This is tho opinion of Secrotary Meyer,
of tho navy dopartmont. In his annual
report, mado public today, Secretary
Meyer pleads for threo new battleships
this year and declares that this
country soon will fall from second to
fourth place In the relative strength of
naval powers, if it continues tho policy
of building only two ships each year.
International peace has been brought
no nearer, tho secretary declares, so far
as a limitation of arrangements is concerned.
To guard Its coast and commercial
activities ttio United States needs a
permanent navy of forty-one capital
ships, battleships and battlo cruisers,
according to tho secrotary.
Tho present strength of tho navy in
battleships is about but
four ships will soon bo retired as obsolete.

From Saturday Advertiser.
Caucuses aro reported to have been
hold over the national gunrd armory appropriation
by Incoming legislators nnd
members of the Domocrntic committees
in tho hope that tho $100,000 appro
priated out 01 tho lunrts derived irom
the two bond issues may by diverted to
other permanent improvements in tho
Territory.
Governor Frcar states that ho has
heard nothing of such a proposal and ho
Is expecting the plans and specifications
to bo readv in tho near future so that
bids may bo advertised for beforo tho
legislature convenes. It was his plan
originally to have the contract awarded,
if tho bids wore right, beforo tho
end of tho year, on account of a
sion In tho permission by tho war do
partmont to the Territory to mnKo use
of the drill shed for Its armory boforo
the end of tho present fiscal year.
Those who havo been caucusing over
the funds that may bo nt tho disposal
of tho coming legislature havo had their
attention drawn to tho armory
and arcuments havo been
mado that tho armory and the guard,
with the rapidly increasing regular
nnnv establishment here, aro not as no-
ecssary ns in former years. On this
ground those who havo attended tho
caucuses nro of the opinion that if tho
armory matter can bo delayed the
would havo an opportunity of
bringing tho $100,000 within tho scopo
of their 6wn lawmaking and divert it
to some other use.
Governor Frcar was asked yestorday
I whether, in tho oveut of no contract
ing awarueu ocioro luu lugisiuiuru uiui.
and took tho matter under consideration,
tho money could bo reapproprinted.
The Governor stated that tho money
was now in tho territorial treasury, and
thnt if tho legislature choso, it could, in
tiio event of tho contract not having
been nwnrded, handle the money in Its
new appropriation bills, but it would
havo to bo reapproprinted, if at all, for
hills, permanent works.
me suggestion is made inui mo national
guard work could bo bettor directed
toward acquiring a knowledge of
tho handling of tho big Coast defense
guns, rather than ncting as an infantry
rceiment. and that by traininc tho citi
zens to use these guns they could bo
used nlmost exclusively in tho fortifications,
thereby leaving all tho mobilo
forces intact and with no need to withdraw
any of them as additional artil
lerymen.
It hns been argued by thoso who favor
tho National Guard drilling as
coast artillerymen that by taking places
in fortifications in. tlmo of trouble thoy
would not bo subjected to tho hardships
of a Hold campaign, which
many of them would not bo capable of
enduring,
Whilo in times of peneo tho National
Guard act ns infantrymen and nro able
to march upon good roads and sleep under
good thick blankets nnd undor
tents nnd Iiavo good, hearty, hot meals,
in tlmo of war thoy would not bo ublo
to face tho hard conditions which war
imposes. On tho other hand, it is nr
cued tho lifo in tho fortifications would
bo an easier method of serving their
ling nnd they would bo as olTcctunl as
aids to tho regulnr army.
Tho contractors of the city, however,
fcpl that tho plans ami specifications
will bo out presently nnd thnt thoy will
bo nbln to put in bids this month nnd
havo thorn acted upon beforo tho end
of tho year.

HIGH PLACE AMONG NATIONS
Monroe Doctrine Strengthened in

(lly Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, December 3. A
noto of wuruing to European powers
which by indirect means contlnuo to
discriminate against American trado;
a strong appeal to tho congress to uplift
tho grent foreign policies of America
abovo mere questions of partisan
ship; n triumphant vindication of tuo
diplomacy of tho administration, which
Is characterized as thnt of "dollars
versus bullets"; n masterful pride In
tho enormous oxpnnsioii of American
trade uh n result of tho foreign policies
of his iidminlstrntlon; nnd nn earnest
npiieul for joint action by congress and
tho executivo to open now markets for
American industries theso nro tho
moro striking features of President
Tnft's fourth annual message sent to
congress today.
Tho messago is tho first of a scries
of such communications which ho will
mnko to congress in tho early days of
the session, nnd deals entirely with tho
foreign relntioiiB ot tho United states
"nirlii,ilniT wllli flin HQilnl in
December, permitting tho government,
instend of imposing tho full maximum
rntcs of duty against discriminating
countries, to apply a graduated scalo of
duties, up to that maximum of
per cent.
Out of Dato Tariffs.
"Flat tariffs aro out of dato," says
the President. "Nations no longor
equal tariff treatment to nil othor
nations, irrospectivo of tho treatment
from tliem received. It is
very necessary that tho American government
should bo equipped with weapons
of negotiation nnd adapted to
modern economic conditions."
Promotion for Merit.
Tho stnto department, "an nrchnic
and inadenuato machine," nt the be
ginning of this administration, tho
President says, has becomo a now organization,
with highly specialized
biircniis and exports dealing with every
jihaso of American trndo nnd diplomacy.
Holding that the essence of this
reorganized servico is found in tho nier.
it Hvstcm, which President Cleveland is
credited with having introduced, 1'resi
idiiiission to and promotion in the dip
loniiitic nnd consular services.
To show that those appointments nro
already largely non-partisan, the President
points to tho fact thut three of the
present ambassadors are holdovers;
that of tiio ton ho hns appointed, flvo
woro by promotion from tho rank of
minister; that of the thirty ministers
unpointed, eleven were promotions; nod
that in tho consular sorrieo no less than
ii!i por cent, of tho consuls appointed by
lilm were irom tno woiitliern atntes.
Dollars for Bullets.
"Tho diplomacy of tho present ad
ministration hns sought to respond tn
modern ideas of commercial
says President Tnft. "This
policy lias licon characterized as substituting
dollnrs for bullets. It is one thnt
appeals ullkn to idealistic humanitarian
sentiments, to tho dictates of sound
policy and strategy, nnd to legitimate
commercial alius,"
Tho President adds flint "because
minium diplomacy Is cominnrcliil, thoro
lina been a disposition In hoiiki quarters
