O'CONNOR Latest Novelties in Tobacco Jars and Pipe Racks at Burford's | Navy League Strongly j Urges a Better Sea Force f ? ? NEW YORK, Jan. 10.?Tho Navy ? League of the United States has com * pleted the following "general reas ons." why a strong navy should be : maintained: ^ Sea Power and History. ? Sea power was indispensable to the ? success of the Revolution. ? The navy fought and won the War ? of 1812. I The Union was preserved as much * by the blockading navy as by the ? Army of the North. ? The navy decided the outcome of I the war with Spain. ? England's navy has given that coun ? try uninterrupted peace on the water * for nearly 100 years, and her shores ? have not been invaded for nearly a ? thousand years. Germany, with an adequate navy, has been practically free from war ' on land or sea for forty years. The National Defense. Undefended resources Invite ag gression. The United States has 21,000 miles of coast line to denfend? The United States Navy has more harbors with large cities and a larger number of strategic points to defend than any other nation's navy. , The navy must defend Porto Rico, the Philippines, the Hawaiian Isl- j ands, and the Panama Canal. It is "better to be despised for too , anxious apprehension than be ruined by too confident security." American Policies. The Monroe Doctrine. 1 The attitude of the United State3 | jas to possession or ownership of stra- 1 tegic alien harbors and coaling sta- I I tions. I The neutrality of the Panama Can- I al. including its safeguarding when t '.other nations are at war. t The restriction of Asiatic immi- t i gration . t The integrity of China. t The rights of Americans traveling s j abroad, regardless of blood or re- t I ligion. 1 t Under the caption "From the I Standpoint of Economics" it is point- < ed out that battleships are cheaper I ? than battles; that the money paid for t the construction of battleships goes to American workingmen and ship-it builders: that the navy is a good c school that teaches elllciency in i many trades, and that the annual cost < of the navy, which is some $130,000,- < 000, is cheap insurance against the i cost of war, and represents that Amer icans spend each year on now tires for their automobiles. "Outside the Sphere of War," is the cuption of another list of reasons. In it these services of the navy are set forth: The supression of the African sla c trade. The supression of piracy. The opening of Japan. The opening of Korea. Arctic exploration and relief. Protection of the fur seals. Pioneer work of coast and geodetic survey The establishment of lighthouse ser vice. Pioneer work of the Weather Bu reau. The work of the Naval Observa tory and Hydrographic Office. Explorations and preliminary sur veys for various Isthmian Canal routes. Frequent protection of missionar ies and citizens abroad. Frequent prevention of insurrection in the West Indies and the Southern republics. Friendly offices to Cuba, Panama, Santo Domingo and Nicaragua. Repeated earthquake and famine re lief at Messina, Martinque, and San Francisco; in Ireland and else where. Under "Diplomacy" the league points out the force a great navy ;ives to diplomacy. Naval power is a legitimate factor in international set tlements, it maintains, because it "Is he evidence of national efficiency." Under the caption "Peace Programs," he attention of Congress is called to lie fact that disarmament and obliga ory arbitration are incompatible; hat armament may be the instrument o force the arbitration of an adver sary, and that the general arbitra ion treaties adopted at the second I Jague Conference failed to prevent he forcible annexation by Austria of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the seizure if Tripoli by Italy, the invasion of 'ersia by Russia, and the conflict In he Balkans. As "General Reasons" the league ;alls attention to the unexpectedness if war, the impossibility of improvis ng a modern navy, and the ever-pres >nt possibility of any one disturbing dement causing a brawl in the fam ly of nations. I Frank Chance Gets Tenth Interest in the Yankees CHICAGO. Jan. 10.?Frank Chance,) who signed a contract yesterday for three years as manager of the New York American League, at $40,000 a year, is also said to have secured an i interest in the club. While in Los Angeles recently Chance said that to manage the Yankees only under an agreement whereby he could get part ! of the stock. "A salary alone would j not tempt me," Chance is quoted [ as saying. "They must give me a tenth interest in the club or I will stay right here on my orange farm." This announcement bears out the predictions of Chance's friends that he would not return to baseball un less he got an interest in the club with which he signed. Chance had an interest in the Chicago club, and it was the sale of this stock that caused his break with President Murphy of the Chicago club. Chance's friends say that there is only one reason why ho will return to the game, and that Is to vindicate himself in the eyes of the baseball world of the charges made by Mur phy that he was physically and men tally unfit to stay in baseball any longer. Chance according to authori tative information, is in good shape mentally and physically and has the word of the most expert New York physicians that he will not be trou bled with the ailment which was caused by being hit in the head with a ball some time ago. A close friend, who has known Chance for many years, said in rela tion to the case: "I have had Frank Chances' implicit confidences for years and feel free to say that I do not believe any financial temptation would have been strong enough to have him remain in baseball if he ? had been permitted to retire quietly ~ after disposing of his Interest in the Chicago club. "His is not a nature that requires the excitement of the strenuous life to make him enjoy living. He natur ally prefers the simpler life and has enough Interests outside of baseball to keep him as busy as he wants to FOR RENT ? Five-room house un furnished. Inquire of Juneau Dairy.tf. Every thing that will please a smok er may be found at BURFORD'S. bo. Only the belief that the public and his friends would think that he was pushed out of baseball as a 'has been' could change his desire to stay out of it, but that belief would not be strong enough to tempt him back without a stiff financial argu ment in addition. "It will take a pretty high salary to make Chance take a second look at a manager's contract, and If the Amer ican League forces have an idea that he will return to the game for any thing near the salary called for in his Chicago contract they will find that the big deal has been pulled off for nothing." Christy Mathewson, real estate agent, author, billiardist, motorist, checker expert, and also a baseball pitcher for the Giants, is Just now In the insurance business, but he Is hav ing a hard time making people believe it. When Matty begins to talk Insur ance with a prospective customer, the conversation for five minutes is about Insurance and for the next hour base ball. So Matty had to call a halt. He doesn't mind talking baseball in summer, but in winter he wants to talk insurance. So many people have dropped into Mathewsons' office to talk baseball that he had to put up n sign. It reads: "This is an insurance office and not a lounging room. Christy Mat hewson is interested in anything that has to do with insurance. Ho does not recall the score of the last game of the World's Series." But there is a lot of people that the sign has no effect on. The other day a man dropped in, sat down, and lighted a cigar, and said: "How are you Matty? I've seen you pitch many a time." "You've got the wrong man," an swered Matty. "You don't seem to know me. I'm Mathewson the Insur , ance man, not the baseball pitcher. ' Can I talk to you about a policy?" Matty says that if he could only hide his identity he might sell more I insurance.
