Mr. Hale challenged the last statement

Mr. Teller, ot Colorado, denounced tne
Penrose proposition, and declared that no

which will grow out of "a surrender now,

Mr. Hanna said the few men deter
?lined to have a government armor fac?
tory built were willing to sacriflce every
thing else, and he wanted the armor
tjuestion' taken. out of the legislative
branch of the government in order to get
it out of politics.
Mr. Hanna advocated ihe Penrose-prop

agent to do for him that which he could

"Why," asked Mr. Daniel, "did the
armor-plate manufacturers decline to tell
the cost of production of armor-plate
when asked by tho Senate Committe-ev"
Mr. Penrose requested permission to re?
ply to this question, and began by referring
to Mr. Daniei's speech as a reckless state?

Mr. Daniel, continuing, said there was

Mr. Cannon submitted the conference
report on the sundry civil bill, showing
the item carrying the claims of Nevada

for the memorial bridge across the Poto?

vision as to the State claims was com
promised by an amendment that certain
Federal claims against those States wouid
not be presented.
Considerabie debate followed on the
various items. The conference report
was agreed to, but the disputed item was
sent back for further conference. This
was to.appropriate $101,000 for ciaims of

At 4 o'clock the House again insisted
upon its disagreement to the Senate
amendments to the naval bill i>-lating to
ocean and lake surveys and the abolition
of the sea course for naval cadets.
Mr. Foss then called the attention of the
House to the fact that the Senate, after a
protracted struggie, had practically agreed
to the House provision relative to armor
plate. (Applause.) The only change was
a change of verbiage, making it manda
tory upon the Secretary of the Navy to
erect an armor-plate factory in case he
cannot contract for armor plate at a "rea?

Mr. Kitchin assailed the proposition to

simllar resolution relating 'to the Toledo
TIIE NAVAL BILL.
At 0:30 p. M." Mr. Foss presented ? the
final report on the naval bill. A compro
mise had been effected on the provision
relativo to ocean surveys, which appro?
priated $50,000 for hydrographic surveys. |
The Senate receded from its provision
abolishing the two years' sea course for
the naval cadets, but secured an amend- j
ment to the present law to permit an ap
pointment from each congrDssional dis?
trict every four years.
Mr. Foss said tiie Senate conferrees had
absolutely insisted upon the provision re
lative to ocean surveys.
Mr. Cannon asked the House to rejcct
the conference report.
Mr. Moody. of Massachusetts. vigorous!y
demanded "that the report should be re
jected. He said the question at issue was
whethcr a "coterie of naval oflicers" or
the House was suprt-me.
Mr. Cummings, of Xew York, said the
Senate conferrees had insisted upon the
word "hydrographic." lt was, lie said,
simply the alternative of accepting that
word of stayihg here all night and possibly
for several days.
Mr. Cannon told how memhers had beon
bombarded by Ietters and telegrams in the
Interest of this hydrographic work. He
had suspectc-d that they were promptcd
from the Xavy Department, and had
called on the Secretary for all Ietters sent
out from thsre on tlie subject. The Sec?
retary had repiied that there was nothing.
"I knew that letter was a falsehood in
substance," continued Mr. Cannon. "That
is strong language, but I afterward was
able to prove that the Secretary as well
as the House had been imposed on by tha
Bureau of Equipment."
He had kept all these facts secret, he
said, because hc know the Secretary of
tho Xavy was an honorable man, and had
been imposed upon. He had been com
pelled to disclose. them, he said, in tbe
interest of the pubiic service and to vin
dicate t'ne honor and manhood of the
Hoiise. Amid great applause he asked the
