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
•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.

Make the Best at Home
Money spent for the old-style, ready
made cough syrups in bottles holding
only 2 to2,lj ounces is very largely wasted,
localise most of them are composed
principally of sugar and water. Yet you
liave to pay the same price as if it was all

can make a better cough medicine at

the drug store named below and ask for 2
ounces (50c worth) of Schitfmann’s Con

one pint of granulated sugar and one
half pint of boiling water, which makes
a full pint (lfi ounces). This new, simple,

the worst cough or cold. Also excellent
for Bronchial Asthma, Bronchitis, Croup,
Hoarseness and Whooping Cough. One

COL. GOETHALS DESCRIBES DE
FENSES OF THE BIG DITCH AS
GOOD AND AMPLE.
Washington, Jan. 5. -Fortifications
of the Panama canal were described
us satisfactory today by Colonel Go
ethals. governor of t lie canal, before
a house appropriations sub-committee.
The colonpl told bow the great guns
mounted at the entrance to the
waterway measured up to the heav
iest weapons that could be brought *o
bear* by any foreign war craft atloa',
of carefully plan-.ml mine fields anrl
of mammoth searchlights capable, of
sweeping the entire range of gunfire.
With the committee Colonel Go
ethals went over the estimates ag
gregating $18,000,0<>»i needed tor com
pleting and maintaining fortifications,
and constructing public works in the
canal zone during tflie next fiscal >eat
He explained tin situation caused by
recent landslides into tihe canal, tell
ing tlie committee thn ttlie problem
had proved to be. much more serious
than was firs-t supposed
Brigadier General Crozier, enter of
the ordnance bureau, and Brigadier
General Weaver, chief of coast airtil
lery, gave the committee some de
tails concerning the canal fortiiica
lions. It was explained that tlie \^■
inch guns of the main batteries were
being bored out to enlarge their
powder capacity and give them a
range as effective as the I5<indh gun
carried by some of the foreign war
ships. Originally, the committee was
told, the i owder chambers had been
bored to less than their maximum ca
pacity in order to increase the life of
the guns. When these changes are
completed the guns are expected to lie
more effective than any carried by
ships because of the advantage in
fixed mounts ashore
Colonel Goethals urged retention of
an item of $40,000 ,for two light
houses in Panama bav.
