Bill to Carry Appropriation to
Construct Them at $12,-
000,000 Cost
FIGHT IS PROMISED
Burnett Will Continue to Oppose
Building More Than One
Dreadnought
The nasJ bill for the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1914, will carry appropriations for
the construction of two Battleships o lat
est modern construction to cost about
SS.00O.O0O each.
The bill, upon which a subcommittee of
the Naval Affairs Committee now Is en
caged, following; extended hearings before
the full committee, will be reported out
probably the latter part of next week.
From the Democratic viewpoint. It will
deal generously with the department s
construction programme and will be the
basis for a spirited flgnt on the floor of
the House for three tmrtead of two bat
tleships. Although the chairman of the Naval
Affairs Committee, Lemuel Padgett, of
Tennessee. Is a one-battleship man. and
while the Democratic majority in tha
committee Is four, the Republicans are
prepared to vote solidly for two ships.
Chairman Padgett it is understood, has
not Indicated that he will make a de
termined fight against two ships, and
the subcommittee now drafting the bill,
and of which Sir. Padgett is chairman,
expects to be able to report a two-ship
bill to the full committee. Among the
Democrats on the committee, who iaor
tno ships are Itepresentatlves Talbott
of Maryland. Hobson of Alamaba, Esto-
plnal of Louisiana, and Rloruan of New
York. Others who have not made their
position plain are expected to vote for
the more liberal programme.
In the meantime. Representative John
Burnett of Alabama, who as leader of
the "no-publlc-bulidlngs-no battleships
croud last session, was beaten despite a
caucus dictum in his favor, is planning
another campalirn this jear If the Dem
ocrats try o put more than one battle
ship through.
revr Retrenchments Probable.
The estimates of the Secretary of the
Nay lor this jear called for the con
struction of three flrst-class battleships
to make up for the loss Incurred last
jear when tho new Pennslanla was
the only ship authorized. While the Re
publicans on the floor may make a spir
ited tight for three ships when the bill
reaches the House, there Is little proba
bility of their efforts meeting with suc
cess.
On one feature of the naval pro
gramme the committee has come to
look with a good deal of favor, and
the bill will carry no retrenchment
move as far as target and steaming
practice Is concerned.
Although the general board, upon
whoe recommendations the Sccretary
of the Navy largely bases his esti
mates, declared for two battle cruis
ers in addition to four battleships, no
attempt will If made to construct
ships of this type as long as Congress
holds down the, battleship construc
tion type so low While these heavy
armed greyhounds, which European
powers are paying marked attention to
now, because of their wide steaming
radium and heavy armament, are con
sidered of great importance by our
naal experts, It, 's not belleied wise
to construct them at the cost or bat
tleshlps.

Miss Bowers Is noted as a horsewoman

of flying paper and seemed confident of
her ability to control the high-strung
thoroughbred. Leaving Rock Creek

the party turned south In Sixteenth

Bob quickened his pace, and Miss

Getting to Capitol"
Wilfred T. Webb, Special Messenger With
Arizona's Electoral Vote, Reaches t
Washington One Day Late.
Wilfred T. Webb, speaker of the terrl
torial legislature before Statehood was
granted Arixon, is in Washington as tho
guest of Senators Mark Smith and Henry
P. Ashurst, He came yesterday after
noon at 4 o'clock direct from Phoenix via
New Tork, bearing Arizona's four elec
toral votes for Wilson and Marshall,
which ho delivered at the office of the
Vice President.
That he was a day late in depositing
the votes of the baby State and tnat bis
failure to put In an appearance Monday
has caused no end of-worry and specu
lation as to what had become of him was
not known by ex-Speaker Webb until ha
waned up m rcw lone yesieraay mom
lrg. He was making the trip from Phoe
nix to Washington In easy stages, break
ing the monotony of the Journey by stops
en route. He might have dropped off at
Trenton to pay his respects to the President-elect
If he hadn't heard In New York
that they were looking for him In Wash
ington. "I took my time about getting to Wash
ington," explained Webb, "because I was
under the Impression that I had until
Tebruary 1 In which to deliver our four
electoral votes. A lawyer friend of mine
In Arizona looked up the law on the
question and so advised me. I didn't pay
him anything for his advice, and I am
not sorry, because It wasn't very good
advice."
Webb left Arizona nearly two weeks
ago. He came via Kansas City, tit,
Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Buffalo, and New
York.
Under the law, messengers bearing the
electoral votes of the several States are
allowed 25 cents per mile en route to
the Capital but the mileage is paid on the
direct route basis. Webb Is entitled
to something over 1700 for his mission,
but his failure to live up to the letter
of the law subjects him to a penalty
and the forfeiture of his mileage. It Is
not believed, however, that either penalty
r rorreiture win be invoked.
When Webb failed to arrive Monday
night, the Arizona Senators became
much disturbed, and began working the
telegraph in an effort to locate Webb.
The last they had heard of him was
from Kansas City, and they kept the
wires warm at points along the route
between Kansas City and Washington,
all to no avail No word could they get
from Webb, neither could they ascertain
his whereabouts.
Yesterday morning about 11 o'clock
Senator Ashurst received a wire from

Club, In meeting assembled, respectfully
petition the Senate ot the United States
to defer action on the nominations made
by President Taft for District Commis

run with the terra of President-elect Wil

the men who will be associated with him
in tho government of the Capital of the
United States for the next four years."
