Washington, May 11.—In a letter to ' Senator Hale, Chairman of the Naval 1 Committee. Secretary I>ong opposes the ! Chandler bills to seize the armor-plate plants of the Carnegie and Bethlehem ! Companies, and the Perkins amend ment to increase the limit of price for armor to $350 per ton, and to authorize the construction of a government armor plate plant at a cost of $1,500,000. He also opposed the $350 per ton limit, and recommended $400 per ton. Secretary Herbert and the department had hold that a plant could be constructed for $1.50C,000, but Secretary Long confirms the views of the Carnegie and Beth hem experts by insisting that it would ! require at $3,000,000 to equip a plant. I The letter says: I “The bureau is of the opinion that neither of the armor-makers will con ; sent to supply armor finder present re quirements at the price named. It is also the bureau's opinon that the sum named for the purpose of establishing a government armor factory would he inadequate. Although $1,500,000 is the sum estimated by the department, it must be remembered that an armor 1 plant, separated from the manufacture of the steel ingots themselves would be useless. The largest steel ingots need ed for the manufacture of armor can at present only be supplied by the Car negie and Bethlehem companies, and the transportation would be impossible. Consequently, if the government pro poses to go into the business of mak ing armor plate it must establish^ a plant complete in every respect. To obtain the necessary stock of material for working on a large scale for the unavoidable experimental work in the beginning, it Is thought that $3,000,000 would be more nearly the sum required than $1.5CO.OOO. "The bureau, therefore, recommends that this amendment be modified by fixing the average rate per ton of armor at $400 instead of $350. and by substi tuting $3,000,000 for $1.500,0C0 for the establishment of an armor plate fac tory. In the bureau's opinion, the rec ommendation twice made to Congress by the department that the average cost of armor plate be fixed at $400 per ton should be adhered to. In cose Congress fails to alter the law as recomtrended, or in case the armor makers refuse to j manufacture the armor at this figun , the bureau sees no other course except j that the battle ships Nos. 7. 8 and 9 be furnished with laminated armor. It being inferior to solid armor, as well a* much easier to manufacture, can be purchased within the limit of $300 per ton from other steel manufacturers and without excessive delay. -The deparement. while subs'an ia'ly concurring with the above report of the bureau of ordnance, is further of opin ion that to take possession of the Armor making plants of the Carnegie and Bethlehem companies for a period of time sufficient to manufacture the ar mor plate for the three battleships now under construction woul<^ only subject the government to great and uncertain expense in preparing for and carrying on the work, 1)ut might be hel l to be so far a practically complete taking as to oblige it. upon trial before a jury, to pay substantially the whole value of the property. It would not only be a taking of the property of those com panies for the use of the United States, but it would prevent them from making contracts with other governments that such action constituted a practically complete confiscation. “It should also he borne in mind that it would probably be necessary to take not only the armor making plant proper of these companies, but also for the reasons suggested by the bureau of ord nance their plants for making steel in gots. or in other words, their whole establishment.” AN EXCITIN'!* FLNEItAI.. While Fording a Creek the Horse* Were Attacked Hv an Alligator Jacksonville, Fla., May 11.—The lat i est alligator yarn from Dade City reached here yesterday. It says that much excitement was caused at Twin Lakes, west of hero, on Wednesday last, by the pranks of a big alligator near liampton creek. Mrs. Henry Thomas died the day before, and the body was being taken to the cemetery, across the creek. The creek is about three feet deep. As the hearse reached the middle of the stream an alligator dashed from the bank and began circling around the horses. The horses ran away, broke loose from the hearse, and dashed to the bank, leaving the hearse and driver in the middle of the stream. The alligator then attacked the horses in buggies behind the hearse. Saul Jackson’s black horse showed fight, und the alligator bit It. The horse dV^ftWhed the buggy, throwing Mrs. Jackson and two girls into the water. They managed to get to the shore in safety. One of the men went back half a mile and borrowed a rille from a neigh bor. came back, and after six attempts shot the alligator dead. It was nearly fifteen feet long. A BUi l’Al'KK MACHINE.

Rumford Falls, Me., May 11—Work men this week are putting into place in the mills of the Rumford Fails Pa per Company the largest paper machine in the world.
