MANE WO-NI BE OLD.
To Parties Who Wish to Exhibit th(
ed by House.
Washington, Dec. 16.-Efforts to au
thorize the sale of the hull of the bat
tleship Maine to private parties vh
desire to exhibit at various ports o:
the United State,s and charge an ad
mission fee to visitors, were defeate"
in th-_ house of representatives today
The urgent deficiency bill, carrying
ing an appropriation of $250,000 tc
complete the work of raising th(
Maine, after a hard fight, passed th(
house without charge.
It was admitted in the debate tha:
offers approaching $1,i00,000 hav
belan received from exhibition intcr-s
for the rear portion of the hull, whicli
can be fitted up with a bulkhead and
towed from Havana to the United
To Sink Hull in Ocean.
Chairman Fitzgerald, of the appro
priations committee, admitted that it
is the present intention of the govern
ment to tow the rear part of the hull
out into the ocean and sink it, with
the naval honor that goes to a gallant
"I believe it would be better for the
people to get what we can for the
ship," declared Representative Macon,
of Arkansas, who opened the fight for
the sale of the hull. "There are plen
ty of novelty seekers and Con?y Is
landites who would gladly take the old
carcass where it is, and pay a good
price for it, in order to get it over
here, and charge so much per look at
it, or'sell pieces of it to curio hunters
at so much per curio."
Mr. Macon's proposal to cut out the
appropriation to complete the work
on the Maine was defeated.
"In my opinion the American people
'would not tolerate making a public
show of that old vessel," said Mr. Fitz
gerald. "There are some things that
are sacred to the people, and among
-them are the remains of, men or of
'vessels lost in defense of the nation.
I would deplore the American govern
ment attempting to make profit out
-of this ship, merely to gratify the idle
curiosity of any people of the Unit
Offers of Nearly $1,000,000 Made.
'Representative Sisson, of Missis
sippi, who was one of th-e committee
of congress that recently visited the
wreck and inspected the work, then
attempted to secure the adoption of
'an amendment authorizing the' war
department to invite bids from pri
vate parties for- the rear portion of
the hull, to ,be used for exhibition pur
poses. He said General Bixby, in
charge of the work at Havana, stated
that several tentative offers had been
received from the United States, some
of them approaching $1,000,000.
Mr. Sisson said he did not consider
it as opp}osed to the desires of the
American peopl~e to provide for a pub
ilic exhihition of the wreck of the
Ma~ne under private auspices.
,"~ would have no objection to hav
ing it towed up the Mississippi river
and exhibited to my children," de
clared Mr. Sisson.
The house refused to sanction any
sale of the Maine. The bill as passed
would permit the secretary of the navy
to give a portion of the wreck to the
city of Havana for a public mtonu
ment, such a request having been made
by the president of Cuba, and would.
authorize the secretaries of war and
navy to grant other portions as souv
enirs to cities, patriotic societies or
survivors or heirs of survivrors of the

MEASURE WILL HURT SOUTH.
Pension Bill May Prevent Passage of
Public Building Bill-Newberry
Washington, Dec. 15.-As predicted,
the passage of the dollar-a-day pen
sion .bill by the house has probably
caused this year's public building bill,
which is of great importance to the
South, probably to be abandoned un
'til next session, unless Congressmen
'Underwood and Morris Sheppard,
'chairman of the house committee on
'buildings and grounds, Fitzgerald and
eothers are overruled. The latter do
liot hesitate to say that the country
is in no condition to stand the passage
of a bill of this kind, calling for an
appropr-iation of probably $40,000,000,
just after the passage of the pension
bill, and they propose to lio all they
ea to prevent the enactment of such
The majority on the committee,
however, -want a bill passed, regard
less of the pension bill.
Today Mr. Underwood said: "h
'treasury department is already thre4
and a half years behind in its worn
on public buildings, and even if a bil
wer passed and buildings authorize<
it would be impossible for them to b(
started for the next four or five years
For that reason if for no other, w(
would wait until next year, at least
before even considering a public build
"Moreover, the house of representa
tives, having already passed the Sher
wood pension bill, ought to hesitate
long time -before making any furthe:
drai-s upon the treasury. I think w<
may say with reasonable certaint:
that the house will not authorize
public building bill at this session
which, if fair to everybody, would ap
propriate $30,000,000 to $40,000,000."
It will be seen that iq this situa
tion the outlook is that many cities i
the South will go without federa
