Bu1t Awithou t cto-iopera tion in the senate his hands are tied. -' I nvAI the A\ish1l.s of the head of the dlepartment itself with respect t to the New Orleans Navy Yard are ,blockedI by inliuences in the differ tent bureaus of the department. This mialign influence cannot be broken up until there is the most active and aggressive co-operation between the house and11 setnate conlnmmittees in the interes, of the New Orleans yard. A ani4erete illustration that I call to mind t il marke thi< plain. Dluring the last congress. after the naval bill had passed the house, andl was be fore the senate for amendenint. I re-ceived information from the senate 'onnltittee that the department i ished to improveA the facilities at the New Orleans yard and was es pe-ially anxious to have an appro priation carried in the pendi"ng bill for the enlargemenlt of the wharf in front of the station. "New Orleans' 1Work Illocked." "On being informed, inasmuch as 1Loisi ana was without representa tion on the senate committee. I cailed at the department and went over the matter with Secretary Dan iels. Hie expressed himself as most anxious to secure the adoption of the amendment and suggested that I press it. Accordingly. on June 29. I introduced an amendment appropri ating $1it).00,00 for the extension of the whArf. In compliance with the wishes of the department it was adopted by the senate. h in con ferente the bureaucrats were quick to put forward the information that in order to hold the appropriation it would be necessary to secure an "es timate" for the work. Application was made for this perfunctory esti mate, but in vain, and although the secretary was favorable. because the estimate was lacking we lost the ap-,' propriation. The same influences in the bureaus that never lose an op portunity to block the improvement of the New Orleans Navy Yard took advantage of their discretionary powers to see that the wharf was not 'onstructed. "I feel. however, that these ob structionists have now reached the end of its rope. for in the future, the items in the naval bill referring to the New Orleans Yard are going to be mandatory and not discretionary if I can possibly have this, done. "Outrage ands Public ei4andal." "In the same bill that permitted the New Orleans wharf fiasco, there was a mandatory provision to place the yards at Puget Sound. Boston. Philadelphia and Norfolk in such condition by the addition of new equipment as would permti of the construction of vessels of the largest Io Call Us ill Up If You Can't Call Upon Us Solari's Prepare for Easter Dinner This .is the week in which hundreds of families will make special preparations for Easter dinner, and as usual, Solari's complete stock of choice gro ceries will be in first favor with those who appreciate l QUALITY.

New tOrleans Natural Advantages. "El:ver since my experience rela tive to the new wharf I have been consulting with the men who have the new naval programme In hand. They. no less than I. have been anx ious to find a way to defeat these obstructionists. We have been work ing on the matter for some time, and at last I feel warranted in saying that instead of the New Orleans yard being. continued as the victim of bu reau chiefs, developments may short ly be expected by which this plant can be utilized for the construction of merchant craft when not required for naval purposes. This will pro duce the trained and adequate force of ship builders which is a necessary concomitant before the government will seriously attempt to expand one of these stations. "'When the lc ard appouinted to select the best site on the Gulf for a naval station made Its report in 1889. It stressed the fact that New - Orleans was the terminus of six I trunk lines; that its water commu niiation with the vast territory of the Mississippi Valley was unsur passed; that it had unusual facill ties for obtaining every kind of shipbuilding material; an abundance of skilled and unskilled labor, and finally, that coal was abundant and ('heap. "Costs Less at New Orleans." "In a very recent report to the department I understand that not only was this glowing tribute re peated but the numerous facilities added since that day were empha sized. For instance, since the report of Commodore McCann and hl's board, the Lake Borgne canal locks have been opened and coal, steel and other products from the inexhausti ble supplies eo Alabama can be barged to the gates of the Ne# Or leans yard. The trunk lines of rail road have multiplied and a steam steel barge service from the upper stretches of the Mississippi, Missou ri and the Ohio has been inaugurated by which the output of the Pittesburg steel district may be landed at the wharf as cheaply as supplies from the Birmingham district may be brought by way of the Warrior river and the Lake Borgne Canal. But one of the chief facilities to be add ed since that day is the Public Belt Railroad. This is a utility that is acknowledged by all traffic experts as withouit a peer in the United States. By its use every class of material used in naval construction which must be transported by rail can be lail down at New Orleans for less rost than like service at any other yard. "Plot to Strantle New Orleans Yard" "Sinle the sele'ti'n of th, local yard tile navy has chanred Its prin .ipal fuel from coal to oil. and with respect to thi.s supply our yard is more advantareously located than _any of the other plants upon which I the government has been lavishligg = millions while our enemies in the bureau plotted to strangle the New t Orleans yard through the misuse of * AN EXHIBI T of the most recent developrment: irz Bien Jolie Creations Bien Jolie Grecian-Treco Corsets and Bien Jolie Brassieres In Our Corset Department March 26th to April 14th Unellcr the dirc':tiýn 1 ti' Mrl-. \,nLta Miller. at \Widcl\ ki1wl :1 cXpci' . cL 'cLl d C( )V>t1.CF'C I r()n11 t1 h1e11 irt I thle I a'-llil CFl.ter ut N\ew 1 ork (:it.,. ),u are c >,rdiall\ invited to avail II \ urscll I lc r e xpe ri~ e ccld ' 1Ailit\.
