P.crnard N. Baker Suggests It
as Check to Private
Financial interests Refused to
Support Independent Pan?
ama Project.
Washington. r?. c. November JO.?
Bernard N. Baiter, of Baltimore, who
undertook to organize .111 Independent
atoamrhlp line to operate by way of
Panama and to take advantage of tho
post-office subsidy act, told the Inter?
state Comtnerco Committee of tho
Senate to-day that tho financial in?
terests of the country had refused to
give support to the Independent pro?
Mr. Baker urgod that the govern?
ment so Into the steamship business
as a mothod of regulating rates ffom
eoasl to coast by both water and over
the transcontinental railroads. A
government-owned line, he said, would
give the Interstate Commerce Com?
mission absolute control over trans?
continental railroad tates by enabling
it to establish a fair ana reasonable
Atlajltlc-to-Paclflc lato basis.
The Independent steamship line pro
Iacted by Mr. Baker was undertaken
?s the result of conferences with the
War Department and after1 Attorney
General Wlckersham had decided that
It would bfi entitled to the postal
srante. Bids for the portal contracts
must be made next Saturday, Novem?
ber in. ar.d Mr. Baker said he had
failed thus far to obtain sufficient
guarantees to go after the govern?
ment contracts.

tie did not charge, that tho trans
contlnental railroads bad directly in?
fluenced banks und financial Institu?
tions not to support the independent
line, but he said the financial com?
panies had declined to give support
for fear of Injuring the value of trans?
continental railroad securities.
"It Is d'.fllfult to prove that there
has been any concerted opposition to
this Independent project," said Mr.
"We want to know whether the rail?
roads are doing anything to prevent
this competition." said Senator Cum?
"I -have not found any Interest doing
any thing directly contrary to law."
said Mr. Baker, "but I have found ob
lectlon on their port to putting on any
fast steannhlp 'iMc by way of the
Proposed Independent Company*,
Mr. Baker to.ld that In 190?. as the
result of conferences with Secretary
of War Wright, he agr-ed to under?
take the financing of a company that
would build ten steamships fitted to
he army transports or naval auxiliary
Vessels. When Secretary Dickinson
came Into omr? the project was tem?
porarily dropped. In July, 1911, At?
torney-Genera! Wlckersham gave a for?
mal opinion tnsit Panama and Colon
were "foreign ports," and that the
port-nPlce subsidy payments could be
given 'r? >i??K3n?htp lines to develop
"a<4,&?J" those ports.
"Do yoti bejieve thore Is concerted
seltne on the part of the railroads or

Mr Buker said he could give no

fluence hud prevented tho pledge of
support to the proposed Independent
line. He was convinced, however, that
much support had been withheld be
, cause of this Influence; the wide distri?

! It almost Impossible, he said, to fi?

that Is likely to offer serious competl

Naval Board Docs Not Concur in
British Experts' Opinion as
to Small Vessels.
Washington. November 20.?The
United States Is going on building big
battleships, blgg'.-r in,l bigger every
year, too. notwithstanding the recent
declaration In favor of smaller ships
by that distinguished naval authority.
Sir William 11. White, at tho recent
meeting ot tho Koeloty of Naval Archi?
tects In New Vork. Admiral Dewey.
In his position as head of the Naval
General Board and the Joint board on
national defense, has decided convic?
tions on that point, lie Is a personul
friend and a great admirer of the
distinguished British naval architect,
who has designed and oonEtructed
mores than 250 warships, ana so ma*,
fairly he regarded as one of tho
greatest living experts. Without at?
tempting to take Issue with" Sir W11-.
I Ham, however, regarding the economl
j cal and technical advantage of battle
, ships of the smaller type, Admiral
I Dewey Insists that the United States
must continue to build big ships as
long as the other great nava.1 powers
i do so.
Therefore, rough plans will bo laid
before Congress for 'the construction
of two battleships that will make the
! bulldogs of the Spanish-American Y/at
! look like tugboats In comparison.
i These projected ships are to be of
20,000 tons' displacement, armed with
ten fourteen-lnch rtflos. each nearly
seventy feet long; with broad belts Of
I the highest type of hardoned armor
and with steaming capacity enough
? to carry them back and forth across
\ the Atlantic.
It Is on this point of coal endurance
th.-..t the American battleship will ex?
cel those of other nations. Admiral
Dewey. like Sir William White, has no
use for tho so-called cruiser battleship,
evolved by some of the European con?
tinental powers.
i It Is true that with their twenty
1 eight-knot speed these ships could
easily at first run away from one of
our battleships, but with their lighter
armor they would stund no chance In
; a rough-and-tumble fight with our own
ships, while, with their extremely 11m
; lted fuel capacity, one of our battle
shops probably would be able to ran
i them down In a long chase.
It is admitted that these bt-ttleship
| crutsors may be specially adapted to
service In European waters, involving
i very short cruises, but the general
board does not regard them as meet?
ing the needs of the United States
navy which may be obliged to operate;
several thousand miles from home]
bases. Hence the unshaken decision to'
adhere to the regular battleship type.:
and that of the largest proportions.

This removes every trace of hair and
leaves the skin white and firm. You
will have to pay a dollar an ounce for
the deUtone. and It Is worth It.

Naturally most 'merest centres In
the annual report 01 Attorney-General I
Wickersham. as it Is bellevod thai a I
larce portion of it must deal wi\h !
the trusts. Steel, tobacco, sugar und
other monopolies are expected to re?
ceive considerable attention. Not
only win an exhaustive account <'f
what bus already been done along
this line be given by the Attorney
General, hut. in addition, lie will un?
doubtedly outline a most Interesting
policy for guidance In the ftiture.
HlRbh Iwstruetlvr,
After this will come the reports of
the Secretary of War. Secretary of the.
Navy, the P?stmaster-Qc.noral, the'
Secretaries of Commerce and Labor'
and the Interior Departments and;
those of Secretary Knox and Secre- |
tary Wilson. ISnch Is expected to be j
not only Interesting, but highly In- J
struetlve. To the army man tho navy
man, und the agriculturist alike It Is j
believed thai this yeal/'t record of
what has been accomplished and what j
It is hoped to do In the future will [
be mo.si readable.
Poiixh plans will be laid before
Congress soon ufter it meets tor the
Construction of two battleships which
will make those taking part in the
Spanish-American War l-ol; like tug?
boat.*, in comparison. These projected
si .1 . art to i>e oi 30.000 tons displace?
ment each, it iIs understood, armed
?Hl ten fourteen-incli rifles, each i
nearly .-event;, fee-t long: with broad
belts of the highest type of hardened I
armor, und with steaming capacity J
enough to enrrj them buck and forth [
across the broud Atalhtlc,
li is oh this point of eohl endur?
ance that thi American battleship will I
excel those of other notions. Admiral
Dewey has no use for the so-called
cruiser-battleship, evolved by some of
the european continental power.-. It
I? true that With their twenty-Clght
knot speed these ships could easily at
first run a way from one of those
belonging to the American Navy, but
with the lighter armor they would
stand no chance in n rough and tum?
ble flu-lit with American Mups, while
with their extremely limited fuel ca.?
paclty on of these big ships probably
would be able to run them down in
a long ohSse.

Il is admitted that then. , a11l~>h?p.
cruisers may he especially adapted to
service in iltiropcan w. -ers Involving
very short cruises, bur the ?ener.il

Upon this matter Secretary Meyer
Is expected to lay _ considerable stresa
In his report, not chly becnuse of the

which Is certain to be manifested to
