U. S. Lagging in Air Equipment
for Army, Secretary
Says in Report
WASHINGTON, Dec. 9.—As might
have been expected after hia personal
nights in aerolanea in France, Secre
tary Dickinson comes out in his an
nmil report with a strong indorsement
o£ the flying machine and with a
re-commendation to congreßs for an
appropriation to provide the signal
corps with a reasonable number of
the hotter type of machine for in
struction purposes and field work.
Ho recalls the fact that the United
States was the first nation to officially
recognize the aeroplane for military
purposes and conducted at Fort Myer
in I!XM tho firat pubile flight of a
heavier than air machine, yet it has
made no addition tb its aeronautical
equipment, which at present consists
of one email dirigible balloon, one
Wright aeroplane and three small cap
tive balloons.
The secretary calls attention to the
fact that the entrance to Chesapeake
bay, ono of tho most Important po.nts
strategically on the Atlantic sea coast,
is wholly unfortified. At another im
portant point, the eastern entrance to
Long Island sound, additional guns
are needed. Except for these in
stances, so far as guns alone are con
cerned, the sea coast defenses at al!
home ports are in a satisfactory state,
but much remains to be done In pro
viding such auxiliaries as searchlights
and in developing the flre control sys
tem, which will require about $4,000,000
of expenditure.
Congress is asked to authorize an
expenditure of $19,546,843 for the forti
fication of the termini of tho Panama

NEW YORK. Dec. 9.—Prior to the
publication of the government estimate!
the cotton market was very nervous,
and for the last week or more there
has been more or less liquidation by
smaller speculative longs, apprehensive
that prices were based on an under
estimate of the yield.
The report found the market well
liquidated of scattering speculative
long interests, and there al«io seemed
to be a large number of bullishly dis
posed operators who had taken profits
and who were brought back into the
market by the prospect of a supply
which they considered insufficient to
meet the normal requirements of the
season. The bears maintain the gov
ernment must have underestimated the
