made a 'report in which he showed
where at least a part of the money
goes. It occurred to the pay inspector
to make some comparisons between
the cost of articles manufactured at
the different yards.
A 1G foot dingey cost $104.17 at one
yard and $190.34 at another. Awning
stanchions were $1.50 at one yard and
$3.50 at another. Rudders were $C at j
one yard and $10 at another. A tiller
was $1 at otie yard and $3 at another.

ARMY AND NAVY COST
ENOUGH TO BE OF SOME
SERVICE TO U. S.
(Continued from Paste One.)
penditure of the millions of dollars
naturally do not wish to have the true
state of army and navy conditions
made public. Their excuse for secrecy
Is that publicity would enlighten for
eigners as to our unfortified condition.
It is literally true, however, that this
country has no army or naval secrets,
except from the people of the United
States. Army and navy journals have i
so stated time and again. I
Foreign navy journals are pointing !
to the practice of our government in j
placing lawyers and bankers at the j
head of our army and navy as being '
something akin to a joke. One journal i
calls attention to the fact that four of
the last five naval secretaries were
lawyers, and that not one of thm re
mained in office long enough to get
well acquainted with the heads of the
department. Secretary of the Navy
I Meyer, a former banker, was put in j
j charge of our billion-dollar navy after 1
having been graduated from the post-;
office department. He knew nothing I
whatever about, naval matters when j
given the political berth of naval sec-;
retary. Mr. Dickinson was a railroad '
attorney when placed at the head of
the army. j
WHERE THE MOSEY GOES. j
The navy department spends $130,-!
000,000 annually. What becomes of j
this vast sum? Only about $20,000,000 1 f$
go to building new ships. Only about, j
$4,000,000, according to Senator Hale, i
go to enlarging the dry docks and i
equipping the yards where ship repairs az
are made. It does not require $106,
000,000 for coal and ammunition, nor
even for the salaries and food of the
men and officers.
A large sum goes to navy yards that
are almost useless yards located on
water so snauow that the big first-
composed can not reach them. The )
chief - beneficiaries of these political j
navy yards are not the navy nor the
American public, but the constituents i
