Another speaker had Just mentioned
with a note of MidncsN In his voice, that
already American blood had been shed
on Mexican soli.
Advancing to tho well of the House, Mr.
Hobt-en, who was an officer In the navy
for many years, fiprcssed a wish to pay
a tribute to the memory of tho plain pri
vate who fell yesterday nt Vera Crur.
Mr. Ilobton told how a thousand men
responded when Admiral Hampon called
for reven voluntevis to assist Hobson In i ,
inking the Menlmac us u meuns of hot. , ,

harbor. He told how these men obeyed
orders to the last as the Merrlmac sank
Into the waters that lap tho shores of
Cuba, and how at a time when It looked

lime another opportunity to ropond to
th call of duty

Hobson stirred the House as It has not
ben stirred In a long time.
"Oentlcmcn." exclaimed Hobson. "we1
have taken great responsibility upon us
here In this Congress, but I want to telt
jou from knowledge that the confidence .
you have placed in tho pla.n private who
represents the plain average American
citizen out there at the front when the

Hobson said he had herved with the
plain private for eighteen years.
"I remember well how I was first Im
pressed with the character and spirit of
the private." he said.
"ll was on a cruise. A gale had been
blowing for forty-eight hours and the
sens running high. Some midshipmen
were cent over tho masthead. They were
I. I seatiek. It was thought It would help
them out to give them u little exercise and
they w. ic went over the masthead. They
did nut think to give them n warning not
to come down on the lee side, which you
th.iuld never do In a gale of wind, You
ought to go up on tho weather side and
ome down on the weather side. Hut the
order was given for the midshipmen to go
over the ma.th.ad and they promptly did

running very heavy, swamped the boat.
It was not believed the boat could live In
that sea. They called away the other life

they could save any of those who were

spirit of this plain private. And, rente-mis

The average age in tho fleet that la off
the coast of Mexico to-day Is 21 years.
Perhaps I ought to give unother per
sonal tribute to this private. A question
came up a little Incident a little ex
edition In my day. Helug a naval con
ductor, knowing how to build ships. 1
naturally knew how to sink ships. The

Wabiiinotok, April 22. The Navy De

able fleet of war vessels now gathered In
Mexican waters. Secret.try Daniels has ship after the preentatlon of the colors,
ordered four more battleships and fourl A slgnll.eam Incident at the yard was

and the West Virginia and four torpedo

two reserve cruisers have been ordered
to be commissioned Immediately for use
In .Mexican waters.
The most Interesting phase of the naval
orders to-d.iv won the movement of ve-sse! ,
on the Pacific coast. For scvei.tl dajs tht '
Navy Department has ueen increasing uie
strength of the United States ilt.-t on the
west coast of MeMcei. Siveral of the ,

Another explanation of th- Increasing
