-' 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

the Ommission to examilne the va
fious sites on the Gulf of M.1exica
and waters 'colln-ted therewith.
upon which t ere't ta suitable sta
tion antd dry oking facilities. the
aval neetds were mentioned as see
ondalry to those of commerce. It is
most likely that had our business
mlen during all of these years exert
ed their efforts to bringing private
shllipbluilding enterprises to New Or
leans rather than to overcoming the
subtle and unfriendly influences in
the Navy l)epartment, we would be
in a position to undertake some of
tile contracts now being let with a'
prodigality never before dreamed of.
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
"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
