In lieu of tliis provision the Senate in

Mr. Dlngley referred to the great im

carefully considered lu the House and dis

Quite a little grist of District business
came up in the shape of House lulls with
Senate amendments. The first of these
was that defining the standard size and
shape of dry measures In the District,
which the Senate amended so as to defeat
the intent of the bill as passed by the
Douse. A motion of non toncurrencc was
agreed to, and it Is expected that Messrs.
Curtis of Iowa, Milnes and Cobb of Mis
souri will be named as conferees.
The bill to provide for the reassessment
of water main taxes was all stricken out
in the Senate and all of the original bill
returned to the House was the enacting

Messrs. Hyhck, Daheock and Ricliardsou
were appointed conferees.
The bill amending those sections of the
Revised Statutes relating to the disposal
of property in the hands of the police au

an amendment changing the phraseology,
which was agreed to.

ECONOMY IN THE NAVY
Some Battleships and Monitors May
Be Put Out of Commission.
Leadline Officers of tin' Serlce Have
Suggested tho Plan to secre
The Navy Department Is considering the
advisability of retaining only it certain num
ber or vessels lu commission on each sta
tion and laying the others up, but kept in
readiness ror duly on a few days' notice.
The object Is to lessen expenses, which
have become very heavy to the unvy, as
modern war vessels require large crews
and burn enormous quantities of coal.
It Is not contemplated that cruisers will
be among those laid up, but that the reserv e
number will consist principally of the bat
tleship and monitor class. France and
Great llritain arc following this plan, and
find that it works to advantage, saves
money and does not reduce the available
strength of the navy.
Secretary Herliert does not jiroimse to
put into effect immediately the suggestions,
w hich come from the leadlngofricersof the
service, ror he regards foreign afr.iirs as
warranting every vessel the navy has being
read- for Instant service, and, instead of
reducing the fighting strength he proposes
to make every efrort to Increase tliestrength
or the various fleets during the next two
months. This will apply to the North At
lantic fleet more particularly.
When the summer-fleet evolutlors arc
over, and if afr.iirs arc nut threatening
abroad, it is projiosed to lay the Indiana
and Maine up, and also to retire tempo
rarily from active service the Ainplnlrite
and Terror. Possibly theNew York may be
tied uji at some navy ,ird, and the Texas
also. Oulj- the cruisers and one or tio
battleshljis and monitors he intends shall
be lu commission.
The Indiana's place will lie taken by the
Massachusetts, and the two monitors re
tiring will lie succeeded by the Puritan and
Jiinntonomah.nowat Leaguelsl.mil. While
the number of vessels comjtosing the fhet
will thus lie materially decreased, it will
still consist of a force equal to that now
under Admiral Bunce, and adequate for the
ordinary work required Of the home sta
tion. In the event that the jiroposed pro
gram Is carried out. League Island will
proliably be selected as the rendezvous for
retiring naval slifjis, on account of the
fresh waters around (he anchorage ground
and Its freedom frcdn lee.
