SENATORS WORRY OVER SHIP BILL REPUBLICAN OPPOSITION PRE VENTED DEMOCRATS FROM BRINGING IT TO A VOTE, Entire Day Taken Up With Speeches and Appropriation Bills Called Up by Opposition. •Washington. .Ian. —Continued bel ligerency on the part of republican senators toward the government ship purchase bill has begun to worry leaders who failed to get the measure before the senate today owing to mo nopolization of all the time with speeches and appropriation affairs. Inasmuch as but two months re main in the life of the sixty-third con gress and the senate lias not yet pro vided any of the sig supply bills, the reiterated determination of the mi nority to fight the ship bill to the last ditch and to prevent its considera tion wherever possible, has aroused the fears that the administration leg islative program is in danger. informal conferences of majority members were held today to clear methods of procedure. It is probable that night sessions may tie forced in the near future. By compelling the icpublieans to be constantly on hand, the democrats think an endurance contest would result which eventually would force an agreement to allow the ship measure to be voted on. Although democratic managers found no opportunity during the day to get the bill before the senate the commerce committee met and adopted amendments submitted yesterday by Senator Stone. One designed to pre vent secret shipments of contraband abroad would authorize the president to designate ports where customs col lectors would be required to inspect before loading all goods consigned to foreign ports on ships of American register or vessels to be acquired by the United States under the terms of the pending bill. Another amendment would place American ships under in ternational maritime regulations. An amendment submitted by Sena tor Lodge would provide that "no ves sels shall be purchased which are the property wholly or in part or which are in any manner controlled or sub sidized by any of the nations now at war, nor shall any vessel be pur chased under this act which is the property of any of the subjects or citizens of said belligerent nations." A similar amendment was rejected . I by (lie commerce committee before the bill was reached. NEGROES CAN BOX.
