Wasiunoton, May 21. The provision
in the naval appropriation bill for tho
creation of the rank of Admiral nnd Vice.
Admiral, to bo bestowed on the com
manders of the Atlantic and Pacific fleets,
was killed in the House to-day on a point
of order. Other important reforms pro
posed in tho bill went out on points of
order. The proposed change in tho plan
for promotion and retirement of officers
was stricken out, as was also the creation
of a council of national defence.
Chairman Padgett of Tennessee and
Representative Hobson of Alabama
pleaded that the House do not disturb
these important provisions, but their
speeches availed nothing. Mr. Ilobson
said that the retired lit of the navy is
a crying scandal nnd that the United
States is now paying ll.ono.ooo a year
for retired Admirals, while the pay of tho
active list amounts to only $30n,ooo,
He said there are now HO Admirals on the
retired list and only twenty-eight on no

120 commanders on the active list only
two have seen mora than two years of

President Taft swept through six

country ngalnst the "Roosevelt menace."
The second dny of his campaign
across the Hudson, which ended with
speeches In Hoboken and Jersey City
last night, xvas one of the most trying
on his endurance that he has yet been
colled upon to undergo in the precon
ventlon campaign. A fifty mile auto
mobile trip was added to a long sched

The crowds that greeted the President

In fact, the President In tho course of

The President In his speeches yester
day was more pointed In his attacks
on Col. Roosex-elt. In one or two of
them he seemed to Intimate that It Is
more Important to the country that
Roosevelt should be defeated at Chicago
thun that the Republican party should
bo returned to power next November.
Jn these Intimations the President, of
course, had In mind Roosex'elt's veiled
threat to bolt In the event of Taft belli),
named for l'resldsnt. ln his Plalnfleld
speech, for Instance, the President, after
referring to Roosevelt's statement that
If ho was obliged to leave the Chlcngo

'I do not cite that by way of rldlculo,

ing from the conferring on him of nn ,
honor that had been denied to all the
most Illustrious Presidents, It would not
be safe. Those who lox-o the republic

New Jersey brought to the President
yesterday may have had something to
do with the more spirited character of
his campaign. They told Mr. Taft that
