Republicans Willing to Quit Fili

WASHINGTON, Feb. 17.-The
amended government ship bill, ru nh ed
through the house early today, failed
to gain any ground when lt roached
the senate and administration leaders
tonight were uncertain as to Its fate.
Bary In the day lt was discovered
that the amended bill had fulled to ?mt -
Iflfy recalcitrant Democrats or pro
gressive Republicans. Without sup
port of either ot tbese facUons Uie
bill could not be passed. Democratic
leaders realised nothing could be done
unlesB the measure could bc chang
ed In conference, but efforts to send it
to conference failed. Another attempt
will be made tomorrow, lt was said.
Tonight lt was reported that a pend
ing motion to take up the bill tomor
row might prevail, but Republican
leaders, lt was declared, would Insist
upon an understanding that other leg
islation should be considered beforo
they would cease opposition.
Chief Interest centered today in the
special senate committee's Inquiry In
to charges of outside Influences on the
ship purchase measure. Bernard N.
Baker, a Baltimore steamship mana
ger, told the committee ho had In
formed Secretary McAdoo that 60 per
cent, of foreign ships tied up in United
States' ports as a result of the war
were available for purchase because
unsuited for commercial purposes.
Mr. Baker also stated W. J. Sickel,
a Hamburg-American Line official,
had told him ho received! orders from
the German government not to sell
-any German vessels to the United
States. The committee summoned Mr.
SickeU who willi1 appear tomorrow.
Wallace Downey, a New York ship
builder, also waa summoned. ,
