JOKES of Virginia. i In the House of Representatives, ' Tuesday, February 2:5, 1901. i The House being In* Committee ol the Whole House on the state of the Union, and having under considera? tion the hill (H. R. 1222u? making ap? propriations fcr the naval service for the (iseal year ending June 30, 1905. and lor other purposes? i Mr. Jones of Virginia said: ' Mr. Chairman: This is a proposi? tion to establish another naval stat'on in the Philippine Islands. The para? graph which 1 have movid to strike out appropriates the sum of $8t>2.;;'.|5 to begin the construction and estab? lishment of a great and ex? pensive naval stat on at Olongapo. in Suing Bay. Mr. Butler of Pennsylvania. Mr. Chairman, will the gentleman allow me Just there lo make a statement for his information? .Mr. Jones of Virginia. I will. Mr. Butbr of Pennsylvania, it is proposed to abandon the naval station at Cavlte. Mr. Jones of Virginia. 1 am obliged to the gentleman for 'nis information. Mr. Bartlett. This very bill carries an appropriation of $725,P0n for it. | Mr. Jones of Virginia. This is .he very matter which I now propose to discus's. We already have, as the gent I man from Pennsylvania admit:;, a naval station in the Phil'ppine Is lands'. Just where fhat naval station is located it would be.difficult to de? termine were we confined f.r infor? mation to the naval bill now before the House and to the report which ac? companies 'hat b II. In the LOl 'hi re is a considerable appropriation for a '.".aval station at Cavite, which is inj Manila Bay. The report describes Hie exist ng naval station as being loca'ed in Subig Bay. which is at least 60 mil 's away from Manila Bay. So it' would seem that the Naval Commit ' tee does not know exactly where the! Cavite naval station is located. Ca-. vite 's in Manila Bay. and it is there-; that we already have a naval station.1 We are informed that upon the < s-. tablisiiment of a new naval station, at Olongapo the one at Cavjte is toj be abandoned, and that It is the pur-, pese cf the Navy Depanment to takej so much of it as may be movable to Olongapo. We have recently spent, and we are still spending, large sums of money on the Cavite station which it is now the purpose, it seems, to abandon. For myself I am somewhat at a '.oss to knew where the Navy D-partment gets the authority, which the commit? tee tells us It proposes to . xercise. to remove the plant of the naval sta? tion at Cavite to Olongapo. The sta? tion at Cavite was. 1 presume, estab? lished by law. and 1 know of no act of Congrt ss authorizing its removal or abandonment. Mr. Chairman, if it be the intention of the Navy De? partment, with Cr without 'he sanc? tion of Congress, to remove the Ua v-te station to the one proposed at Olonsapo, may I not ask why it is that the urgent denciency bill, which passed this House a few days ago. and which only received the approval of the President on the 18th ot this month, carries an appropriation for the extension and enlargement of tiie construction plant at Cavite? And I aiso ask the gentleman who volun? teered to give me information a tew monv-nts ago. if the Cavite station .s to be removed, why is it that this bill carries two separate and distinct appropriations for that naval station? I object tr> this paragraph because we now have at Cavite a naval station upon which we have expended large suns of money and for which this HI! catriys two appreipriat ons. If t' be true-, as is admitted, that we only ne-ed cne naval station in the Philip pin< s. we sbo"ld ttot appropriate moiie; for two in one ;,nd 'he same biil.

Mr. Untb r of Pen nay 1 vefiia rose. Mr. Jones of Virginia. I think 1 understand i he situation, Mr. Chair? man: and >f when l get thiough I have not covered what the gentleman "is going to ask, I shall be very gfift; to answer eevy quest on which he may' wish to propound. I Hut. Mr. Chairman, there is still an? other and ti most serious objection to this paragraph. Before appropriating; so large a t>um as is ht re propose ! to begin the establishment of another naval station in the Philippine is I lands, Congress should be furnished with reliable information as to what; th* ultimate cost is to be. The Keti tleman in charge of this bill has not given us this information, and no member of the committee has under? taken to enlight?>ji the House upon that important subject. It is entire? ly fair to assume that it will cost many million dollars?how many not even the experts of the Navy Depart? ment are able'to say. | The eight hundred and sixty-two thousand and some odd dollars now asked for exceed by $(12.000 the amount that Admiral Dewey said the. c-ava] station at Olongapo ought to cost, and yet it developed during the course of this debate on yesterday that this proposed naval sta? tion is estimated to cost anywhere from eight hundred thousand to thirty million dollars. The Secretary of the Navy himself stated before the Com? mittee on Naval Affairs that it would cost something, l'ke $10,000,000, in round numbers, and the estimate made by the Navy Department Is even larger than 'hat. One estimate, I am informed, places the cost at twelve and another at twenty million dol? lars, e I Mr. Chairman, I am opposed to en? tering upon a project tif such r%st pro portions as this, one that may. and probably will, involve the expenditure of $30.000,000, unless there is some limitation placed upon its final cost.| 1 protest agalnsi committing the Gov? ernment to the establishment of a; great naval station in the Philippine Islands, within 60 miles of Cavite where there is now one, the ultimate cos; of which has not been ascer? tained. I This proposition simply involves an illimitable and imr*' .>urable expendi? ture. Some limit should be placed upon the cost of this proposed naval | station?some. mark fixed beyond which it is not the purpose of Con? gress to go. Moreover, the character and nature of the ft-orks constructed in the Philippine Islands should de> pend in a great degree upon the final disposition which shall be made ofj them. Mr. Chairman, it Is impossible to] any one session of Congress for any one object by a mere examination of the item or items relating to it in ore |Of the great appropriation bills wh'ch originate in this Mouse. ?There f are a dozen or more appropriation t'dls, each of which carry items ag? gregating many million dollars, and M . is not unusual for several of them to" carry appropriations for one and the, sam- object. j How- ma::y gentlemen upon this floor have any idea what we are ex-. pending in the Philippine Islands tori naval stations and military posts?j Those of you who were in the last | Congress will recall that wlien the measure establish ng c miliare post in the Philippine Islands was under consideration in this Chamber it pro? voked an earnest and hea'eu debate. It8 advocates would not admit that that the $300.000 appropriation 'ben made was to establish a military post. The mom y was to be expended in providing, it was said, temporary shelter for our soldiers In the Philip? pines. The bill which contained that tem became a law on February 14.. 1902. and immediately following Its, enactment there was piaced in the sundry civil bill of that session an | appropriation of $2.000.940, which It was expressly provided should be ex? pended upon that same military post. The sundry civil bill containing this item of appropriation was passed diir-, ing the closing hours cf the first ses-i son of the F'fty-seventh Congress.* and the little $2000.99t item for the mi'ltary post in tr.e Philippines seems to have escaped notice. The army appropriation bill of th^ second ses s!on of the same Congri ss carrw-d a ' .- ppropri.ition of $3imi.imj9 for connnu ine the work upon that military post. Th?t biM was approved on the 2d day of March. 1993, and the general de? ficiency bill whiiii was approved on the 3,j day of March. 1!*C only one d;-y afterwards, carried an add ti"n?l appropriation for the identical pro-_ The fir dry eivll bill of the second M-s.-ion of the ias?. or Fifty-sev-f m h.

To fortify the many seaports and harbors of the Philippine Islands la an undertaking of such stupendous magnitude that it well might appall the imagination of the most heedless. impel lallst. (Applause ). j Mr. Chairman, this bill carries in the aggregate the enormous sum ot $96,000,000. The Navy Department's estimates exceed $102.000,000, and it is t?te to predict that win n It comes back from the Senate It will have giown to $100.000. It is as it now stands larger by $15.000,000 than the ciaval bill of the Fifty-seventh Con? gress, and it is likely to exceed it by $20.000.000. The army bill carried $7.r>,OK!i.957 when It pasued this Henise. and it will net be less when it is re? turned here. The fortifications bill carrie'd $7. 181,192 when it left here, but no man is wise enough to say what the amount will In- whi n it receives Kxe cutive approval. We expended last year for all purposes the enormous sum of $753,068.503.02. and we shall expend during the fiscal year for which Congress is now appropriating motley a sum considerably in excess of that amouni, of which not less than $180,000,000 w II go for military and naval purQpses. We are at peace wirb all the world, and I can not be? lieve that our uaval establishment will require the expenditure next year of $90.oiMi.OOO. This is three times the em .tiiit expended upon our Navy in tin- year 189S. when we were en? gaged in a war upon the sea with Spain. We have twice as nwy men in our navy today as we bad when actually engaged in that war. We have now tn our Na? vy and fit for service more ] than 250 vessels of all descriptions I and classes, P.hd we have expended sir.ee 1883 and up to the present time in developing and maintaining this Navy the gigantic sum of $760,000, 00t>. There are now under Construction, or authorized, more than forty ves? sels, of which thirteen are first-class modern battle ships. These battle ships alone, including armor and ar-i mament, will cost v<.rv nearly $100.-1 000.000, and it is estimated that it will require $130,000.000 to complete '?all that are being constructed. Under' tht-se circumstances I can not give] my assent to a measure that will ap? propriate a larger sum than was ever expended by the United States for| naval purposes in any single year in all fheir history. We have been re? peatedly warned by the leaders of tbej dominant party in this House that I our expenditures may exceed the pub*-, lie revenues. We have been toW thati we are to have no river and harbor bill this year; that not a dollar is to be expended for public buildings; that the National Treasury is In no condi? tion for Congress to enter upon the poiicy of extending Federal aid to the States in eirder to contribute to? ward the maintenance of our post roads. These, Mr. Chairman, are but a few of the internal improvements that are loudly appealing for Congression? al aid. We can expend hundreds of millions in building up vast and ex? pensive naval and military establish ments. and in furtherance of the un American and unwise policy of colon? ization to which the Republican par ty has committed the country, but not a dollar can b- had to provide for the needs of commerce and navigation, not a public building can be authoriz? ed, and 'be appeals which have come to us from one end of the Union to the other in the shape of tens of thousands uf petitions, asking that a small portion of the taxes contributed by the people may be returned to them to bf used in the betterment or t'r.eir public highways, must go uif he-eded. For y?>ars Congress has Seen asked to provide pensions for, or else to re? tire under certain just and equitable conditions, those members of the Life Saving Service who by reason or age or ill health or disability incurred in the line of duty are no longer able1 to endure the- privations cr face the perils of their hazardous vocation. The Revcnu? -Cutter Service has been put on a footing w th that of the Army and Navy, and pensions and re? tirement ha\c been provided hy Con? gress for those- who grow old or b*? com?- disabkd in that service.

Mr. Chairman. 1 am not one ot those who believe that our naval es? tablishment should he Increased be? yond <I'1' addition of the ships already authorized and provided tor. To maintain it at that state 0f power and efficiency which ii will have reached when the ships now under construc? tion and authorize,! are completed will entail upon the United States as 'large an annual expenditure* as the needs of our domestic concerns and commerce will justify and the proper development of our r sources at home will permit. No navy which wa could build would afford adequate protect lion to our 7,000 mllea of coast line. For that we must rely upon torpe does mines, and submarine?. Mr. Chairman 1 have no patience With that description of Kepublican consistency which in one breath de i clares that the permanent retention I of the Philippine Islands will not con jstltute for us a source of military ? w akness snd in another proclaims I that their possession and protection* 'involve the expenditure In fortifica? tions, naval stations, military posts, and battle ships cf enormous sums ot money. The sooner we glvo them that independ nee which Is rightfully theirs the more money we shall have to expend at home In necessary works of Internal improvement. Great na? vies are not >n keeping with that Democratic simplicity which should characterize a Republic founded upon the principles which are supposed to underlie ours, and. like standing ar? mies, are a menace to peace and .liberty. Congressional Record. May 6, 19(?4. It. Note:?Through an Inadvertent er? ror, one ltne was omitted from tue I above speech w hen it was published tin this pap r Sunday morning as an j advertisement for Mr. George N. Wise. The line dropped was the next I to the last, and contained 'mies are menace to peace and.'' and its omis? sion partially destroyed the sense ot sentence of which it was a part. Match Production in Orazil. The number of boxes of matches produced in the federal district of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In 1907 was 202.041, 400. of which 189.350.000 were wood and 12.482,000 wax mutches. The stamp revenue was $1,218,384, or about six-tenths of a cent a bos. The output is used in the district itself. The match tax alone amounts to a little over $1.50 for each man, woman and child. The explanation for this ex? ceedingly large consumption of matches Is in the fact that almost every male Inhabitant of the district is a smoker, and most of them smoke cigarettes. New Substitute for Coal. f Another substitute for coal Is re? ported from Galicia, where a native engineer has made a combination of crude petroleum, cinders and sand, into bricks or briquettes. "which may be used as fuel by any household in place of e>>al. a hundred k.!<>.-? 220.4 pounds) to cost only one dollar.'' A society'has been formed for the pur? pose of manufacturing these bricks and a factory is to be placed in opera? tion at Florlsdorf. Prize Offered Scientists. M. Paul Wolfskel. professor of math? ematics at Darmstadt, has instituted a prize of $25,000 as an inducement to re-discover the famous th??orem of Feraiat. which baa been lost for over two centuiiea. It was Fermat who fint apphed aleebra to* geennetry. and it was of him the Libra declared tba: be knew many things of which we are ignorant?in fact. In many things he was in advance of his successors. Fulton's Power of Thought. Robert Fulton possessed to a re? markable degree the power of concen? trated thought He studied French, Italian and tierman. and acojafied a proficiency in the three languages.

Every one knows a hair tonic Is necessary to keep the scalp in goc.l condition, but every one also knows thai it is a wearisome task to rub it In. One does not always have tho money to pay a specialist, and one is always too tired to do It at home. In the morning there Is too much to do to take the time to massagt the scalp, and at night one needs sleep more than a tonic. So It goes. Knowing human nature, some ono has manufactured a patent fountain comb. It Is hollow, and when pressed by a rubber bulb and run through th ? hair the teeth spray the fluid dlrecily on the scalp All one has?to do is to comb out the hsir for live minutes, pressing thy bulb as it passes over the scalp. There is a bottle full of tonic that comes with the comb which ia pouted Into the hollow whenever it needs re? filling. Gored Skirts. Goied skirts sre strictly In favor this season and gradually gain the day over the plaited, although there is a va riety of plaited aklrts being worn There Is the triple plait at each gore the shallow plait all around the waist and the box plait for the bordered goods. Just now the plain gored skirt s ?<??'.,s bare and untrimmed to the unedu e.ited eye; nevertheless, there Is S constant demand for trimming bands tucka la the bottom and buttons to reconcile one to the plain gored skirt. There tare new white flannels that every woman will like. They co-.ne in hair linen of black, trine, brown and Roman stripes. For odd skirts these are made circular or gored with wide-i hems.
