"Those republicans who have Im

formed and regenerated should soon
be disillusioned. How will those west

Government Armor Plant.
There have in all been nine official
investigations by committees of con

ficers of the navy as to what it would
cost the government to manufacture
its own armor plate. The average es
timate as to the cost of a ton of armor
in a goverment armor plate factory is
$247. The government is now paying
$454 per ton. On a two battleships a
year naval program the government
uses 16,000 tons of armor annually.
Therefore, if the government had its
own armor plate factory it could save
$207 per ton, $3,312,000 a year.
