HOUSE AUTHORIZES TWO BATTLESHIPS; FOUR SUBMARINES Naval Appropriation Bill. Calling for $128,037,602, Is i Also Approved MANY AMENDMENTS BEATEN Tawney Wants One Dreadnaught, and Hobson Three-Both Are Voted Down f Associated Pressl fTT ASHINGTON, April B.—By a de wy cisive vote of 162 to 110, four ■ • teen being present and not vot- Jng, the house late today authorized the construction of two battleships to cost $6,000,000 each. Thirty-three Dem ocrats voted for two battleships and twenty-four Republicans against the proposition. This action was taken just prior to the passage of the naval appropria tion bill, carrying $128,037,602. This amount is about $3,000,000 loss than was recommended by the navy depart ment. In addition to the two battleships, the bill also provides for the conitrui - tion of two fleet colliers and four sub marines. ' The committee on naval affairs had reported in favor of two battleships. Mr. Tawney, chairman of the appropri ations committee, offered an amend ment providing for only one battle ship, while Mr. Hobson proposed an amendment providing for three. By an almost unanimous vote, the house rejected Hobson's proposition. Mr. Gronna of North Dakota moved to strike out the authorization for the construction of any battleships, but a viva voce vote showod there was not a handful of advocates on a "no battleship" policy. WANTS VOm RATTWQSIIII'S Mr. Thomas of Ohio proposed an amendment for four battleships, but the house voted it down almost unani mously. Mr. Tawney's amendment for one battleship was lost by a vote of 104 to 138. At least thirty Democrats voted with the Republicans against Mr. Tawneys plan. Mr. Qoldfogle Of New York offered' an amendment providing that at least one battleship be constructed at a navy yard, the second to be built either by contract or at a navy yard. After extended discussion, Mr. Mann of Illi nois, who occupied the chair, declared the amendment out of order. An effort was made by Mr. Morris of Nebraska, an Insurgent, to amend the bill to provide for one battleship and six transports, the latter to cost $1,000, --000 each. The amendment was ruled out of order. A strong speech against a two-bat tleship policy wa« made by Mr. Bar »tholdt of Missouri, the house "apostle of peace." A point of order was sustained elim- Iniiting from the bill authority for the construction of a $1,000,000 fleet eolller to be built on the Pacific coast by pri vate contract. Under existing law it vill be constructed in a government navy yard on the I'aclflo coast. The appropriation of $1,000,000 for one repair chip was ulso stricken out on a point of order. KK.HT-HOI II b&W BBOOOXIHH) Mr. Fitzgerald of New York offered an amendment which was adopted by a vote of 131 to 15 under which the two battleships and two Meet colliers must be built by llrms working under th«. eight-hour law. Following closely upon this action Mr. Hughes of New- jeisey attempted to have the same law applied to th» building of four submarine torpedo authorised by the bill. The amendment was ruled out of order. Mr. Goldfoglo of New York offered nn amendment directing the construc tion of one battleship in a navy yard. The amendment was defeated, :>a to 103. The provision permitting the consol idation of bureaus of the navy depart ment, according to the plan of Secre tary Meyer, was stricken out on v point of order. Mr. Padgett of Tennessee, senior Democratic member of the committee on naval affaJrs, then moved to recom mit the bill with instructions that it be reported to the house to provide for only one battleship. This motion was defeated on a rojl call, 110 to 162, four teen being present and not voting. Thirty-three Democrats voted with the Republicans for two battleships, •while twenty-four Republicans joined the Democrats in favor of one. MEYER FAVORS NAVAL REGULATION CHANCES Secretary Concludes Situation Demands Subdivision of Responsibility WASHINGTON, April After working for years to develop this sys tem of one-man control of the great fleets of the navy. Secretary Meyer has come to the conclusion that the abilities of the individual have reached the breaking- point and thru It will be necessary to subdivide the responsi bility. Therefore, he has approved a number of' changes in the naval regulation! concerning the administration of the Atlantic and Pacific fleets. The main purpose of those changes is to relieve the commanders-in-chief of much of the details of administra tion. This is to be accomplished by transferring to rear admirals in com mand of each division of the fleets comprising four ships each, a large measure of authority and administra tive power, which will have the result 'of fitting them to succeed readily to the chief command. 1 At the same time the commander ln-chlef will exercise supervisory au thority over all the divisions Instead of over single ships as units. Extending 1 the Idea, the commanders of divisions will bo given an opportun ity to sail away with their four ships to different parts of the world on de tached service with the understanding that the various divisions will at cer tain periods be gathered for target practice and general fleet exercises. , .■■,■-■ *■-■'■ .-(..■■ ■ Bride of Yesterday, Who Surprised All Her Friends by Quiet Wedding j MRS. EDWARD JONES, FORMERLY MISS ADELE YOUNG THE wedding of Miss Adele Young, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Young, to Dr. Edward Jones was solemnized last evening at the resl dence of the brides parents, 1623 liridge street. The ceremony was per formed by the Rev. T. H. Kershaw. Mrs. Philip Zobelein, a sister of the bride, attended as matron of honor, Music Notes Mary Le Grand Reed sang a charm ing program of songs at the Friday Morning club last night. Her voice, Which is a well cultivated dramatic so prano, was heard to advantage In the heavier numbers, but the program seemed slight inconsequential, not of the quality to show the singer's voice or onterpretative powers to their best advantage. The closing number, "Stances," by Flegler, with 'cello obllgato, was tha most effective of any of the numbers, although many of the others were dainty and well sung. Interest cen tered about the song by Laura Zerbe, "The Blue Bird," which was enthusias tically applauded and repeated by the singer. Maurice Koopman played the cello obllgato and made two solo appear ances. Mary O'Donoughue was at the piano. The concent given in the Y. M. C. A. building Thursday night by the Y. M. C. A. (Jlee club, under the direction of J. P Dupuy, scored a success as an entertainment. The auditorium was packed and everyone apparently was pleased. The work of the club demonstrated what can be done with good material, though uncultivated, In the hands of a thorough, patient, musical artist in training a main chorus. Mr. Dupuy is I (_"iiius In this line, as was demon strated by the work of bis singers. The club is only eighteen months old In point of organisation, and though com posed almost entirely of amateurs, the members did their work In a way that led their hearers to loso sight of the amateur entirely, and to hear and en- Joy only the music they gave. This was especially evidenced In their at and In the tone coloring, and the precision of their concerted work. The club was very ably assisted by Miss Edith Bucher, soprano; Carlton Wood, violinist, and Randolph Lewis, ir. Mi.«s Surlier has a very sweet soprano voice which she uses with good effect. Her tone work showed the re sults of constant application, which are attained only \>y the talented and zeal ous worker. Mr. Wood played an "a, b, C," number which showed the variety of his ability, and he proved hinißelf an artist. His work was a splendid credit to the club. The work of Mr. Lewis was very much enjoyed by the audience, and al though young in years, be showed that he had a gift for oratorical work.

IQUISITORS MAKE SCATHING REPORT Pittsburg Jury Indicts Collector of Delinquent Taxes for Bribery [Associated Press] PITTSBURG, April B.—A true bill charging Max G. Leslie, collector of de linquent taxes in Allegheny county, with bribery was returned by the grand Jury today. At the same time a sweeping present ment was handed down with general charges that many of the 250 witnesses which the grand Jury has had before it In the graft Investigation have willfully withheld knowledge and secrets of the graft, and that a few have been guilty of perjury. Directors and officials of the six big banks that profited by the corrupt do pository ordinance are severely scored. The indictment of Leslie follows his recent acquittal on a charge of perjury in claiming an alibi in connection with a previous indictment for alleged brib ery, He is now charged with receiving $25,000 from the Columbia National bank of Pittsburg on June 3, 1908. In the former indictment the date was named as June 6, and Leslie proved that he was out of the city at the time. It is charged that of the $25,000 he paid over $17,000 to William Brand to bribe councllmen. The Indictment season reached such a complex Stage today that even the grand Jurors themselves thought It was necessary to present a comprehensive review of all their work. It was declared most emphatically that former Councilman Charles Stew art and Cashier James M. Young or the Second National bank have concealed information.
