When] bpeaker lurk announced the vote and oeciaicd the bin "passed, the Presl-] 0 nt'a veto to me cdntrary notwitn-I atanuing," there was wild outburst of] uppiausu irom the Democratic side.

Shortly before the vole was taken' Minority Leader Mann appealed to his', followers to stand by thd Republican piirty and protective tariff principles.

THREATENS WITH LOSS OF VOTES Intimates That They Prefer "Pork Barrel" to Welfare of Navy, and Believes Country Will Exact Punishment if This Proves to Be True. Vv'aHhlngton. August 13.?Secretary of the Nacy Meyer. Just returned to his duties after a protracted illness, assailed the naval policy of the Demo? crats of the House of Representatives in a statement male public to-day. Whether the "pork barrel" is raore important than the navy In the minds of the Democrats, the secretary de? clares remains lo be ascertained af? ter another caucus of the Democratic members to be held to-morrow. "The proposition which has been ad? vanced by a Democratic Senator." says Secretary Meyer, "to have the United states build the greatest bat? tleship e-. e.- constructed. Is nothing more than an attempt to distract at tenlon from the delinquency of the | Democratic party with reference to the continued efficiency and upkeep of the navy, since what is proposed is nothing more than what is already required by every act of Ute years, making appropriations for additions to the lleet." The secretary declircs that the Democratic Senators have knocked out the plan for the council of national defense which wa6 indorsed b> trie Democratic National Convention, and ; he asserts that should but one battle- j ship be appropriated for this year, trio United States Navy would fall to riftli ' place ln two years "All acts making appropriations for j the upkeep of tru fleet," the secretary : Bttys, iv-iulre that the battleships to be constructed shall carry js heavy , armor and as powerful armament ts any vessel of its class and ?hall have! t... highest, practicable speed ?nd the greatest practicable radius ot action. Countrj >* Watching. "The country is now watching the Democratic party to lc3rn whether Rj proposes beginning its campaign by repudiating also one of the most Im poitant planks in Its platform. Public .-? ntlment on this question is aroused, and the country is waiting to iee wnat ; will be the rtii.il Democratic notion. | "We nave had the spectacle this year of a democratic caucus of tr... House of Representatives putting a gag rule on it.-, members and thus pi eventing thvtn from voting tor a patriotic ap? propriation, the purpose ot which was national defense and natlon-l honor, j Certain Democratic members, under the; leadership of Mr. Stilzer. are enaeav orlng to ha\e the caucus rescind its no-battleship program, in -.rder to sanction each Democrat In the House , In voting according to his conscience. It remains to be seen whether the Democratic party places local interests ahead of patriotism: whether the 'pork i barrel' is to b? consld-red as of moro | importance than the navy. It is a well-known ma.\tm. admitted by all. that the Monroe Doctrine is no stronger than the navy, that the navy is no stronger than the fleet, and that the lleet Is the navy. Should Com;!ess appropriate for only one battleship at this session, the navy would fall Into lifth place in two years, and the navy's present: position could only be recov? er, d by an appropriation ror three bat? tleships at the next session of Con? gress. "Many Independent voters have stated that If the Democrats cannot be relleu upon to maintain the efficiency of the itavy, and thus bi prepared to uphold the national honor, they intended to .?-how their disapproval of the party's action by voting against It at the com Ins election."
