In advertising for bids Secretary Secretar
Hitchcock took particular pains to let t
the thec contractors know they w would ould uld get
reduced d rates on the shipment of their
materials such as tools etc The result
has been lower bids and the Govern overn ¬
meat me nt is the beneficIary
On March 20 the Secretary of the In ¬

u Theamount The amount of these rebates being beint 5
large is a cogent reason reas m why the Gov ¬

anchored twenty tentymlles miles northeast of

There is no confirmation of the report
to the Reuter Telegram Company that
Admiral 0mht Rogestvensky is not with the
squadron as asw Was nas sanqounced announced
Viir Vill Abide e the t Proper Time
The Theopinlon opinion is expressed ex pressed at the Jap ¬
anese embassy embass here that Admiral Togo T go
will Ill not attack Rogestvensky until the

Secretary Koike of the th embassy in an

Rogestvcnskys fleet by units It is my
t tbEJief belief our navy naY will wait until the Rus ¬
sians siansreach reach the neighborhood of Japan
or before deliver delivering ing a general assault
This will give us the advantage of
a base near byi It would further hai han ¬

foulness of the warships hulls thro through gh
compelling them to cross the Chinasea China sea
I do < not care to express an opinion
as to the outcome of the battle for that
mustspeak must speak for itself I can say how ¬
ever that If Admiral Togo ogo should be
defeated It would not not have the lightest s
effect on the general course of the war
Our home h me authorities long ago mad made
complete compl t arrangements to to copfe coP with
this eventuality Even Ev n if Rogestvensky
should obtain command of the Japan
sea it would not cause us the slightest
Why this is so must remain r mnln i
