SMALLER NATIONS
MAY WNAVIES
Conference to Consider
Adaptability of Five-Power
Washington Treaty.
BY FREDERIC WILLIAM WILE.
The Washington conference on lim
itation of naval armament is about
to bear fruit among; the smaller sea
powers of the world. At Geneva, on
January 21, 1924, eleven of them will
join in a conference of naval experts
to consider the application of the
principles of the five-power treaty to
their naval establishments. The na
tions concerned are Brazil, Spain.
Sweden, Argentina, Chile, Denmark,
Greece, the Netherlands, Norway,
Jtussia and Turkey. None of these
•tales is a party to the Washington
treaty, which is signed only by the
United States, Great Britain, France,
Italy' and Japan. t The forthcoming
conference of “second-class” naval
powers will be held under the aus
pices of the league of nations ad
visory commission on military, naval
and air questions. Two of the con
ferring states—Russia and Turkey—
are not members of the league. The
conference, in which Great Britain,
France. Italy and Japan will join,
will attempt to prepare a draft con
vention for a later international con
ference of all powers, whether they
possess navies or not.
Will I,Unit Construction.
The Geneva meeting will concern
[ itself mainly with a project, like the
| basic principle of the Washington
| treaty, to limit the construction of
capital ships, vis., these having a i
displacement of more than 10,000 I
tons or carrying guns of more than j
eight inches in caliber. The United 1
States will have a special interest !
in the manner in which the “A B C” I
powers of South America—Argentina.
Brazil and Chile—approach the I
Geneva conference. Following the <
Washington conference there were I
sporadic suggestions that the chief I
I>atin American naval powers would
conclude a naval limitation treaty
among themselves. Then it was
hoped the Santiago Pan-American
conference would bring about some
such scheme. Nothing ever material- j
ized.
Brazil and Argentina are bitter (
naval and military rivals. The Ar
gentinians look particularly askance
at the United States naval mission
which is now reorganizing tlie Bra
zilian fleet. The latter’s battleship
Minas Gera.es has been refitted at the
Brooklyn navy yard and supplied
•with anti-aircraft guns. The Sao
Paulo, battleship, also is being re- j
fitted at Brooklyn. Kach of the Bra- t
zillan dread naughts is of 19,000 tons I
displacement and carries twelve j
twelve-inch guns. Argentina has I
two dreadnaught battleships, each of!
27,000 tons and carrying twelve j
twelve-inch guns. Chile has a 28,-
000-ton battleship. formerly the I
Canada of the British navy, mount- i
ing ten fourteen-inch guns.
Spain Most Modern,
Spain has the most modern “second- ’
class” fleet in Europe, with three dread- i
naught battleships of 15,700 tons dis- j
placement, armed with eight 12-inch
guns. She also has a 10.000-ton cruiser, !
which she managed to save from live I
Spanlsh-American war. Soviet Russia, j
theoretically-, has two first-class battle- I
