WASHINGTON, Feb. 17.-The amended government ship bill, ru nh ed through the house early today, failed to gain any ground when lt roached the senate and administration leaders tonight were uncertain as to Its fate. Bary In the day lt was discovered that the amended bill had fulled to ?mt - Iflfy recalcitrant Democrats or pro gressive Republicans. Without sup port of either ot tbese facUons Uie bill could not be passed. Democratic leaders realised nothing could be done unlesB the measure could bc chang ed In conference, but efforts to send it to conference failed. Another attempt will be made tomorrow, lt was said. Tonight lt was reported that a pend ing motion to take up the bill tomor row might prevail, but Republican leaders, lt was declared, would Insist upon an understanding that other leg islation should be considered beforo they would cease opposition. Chief Interest centered today in the special senate committee's Inquiry In to charges of outside Influences on the ship purchase measure. Bernard N. Baker, a Baltimore steamship mana ger, told the committee ho had In formed Secretary McAdoo that 60 per cent, of foreign ships tied up in United States' ports as a result of the war were available for purchase because unsuited for commercial purposes. Mr. Baker also stated W. J. Sickel, a Hamburg-American Line official, had told him ho received! orders from the German government not to sell -any German vessels to the United States. The committee summoned Mr. SickeU who willi1 appear tomorrow. Wallace Downey, a New York ship builder, also waa summoned. , Aa to the ship purchase bill Itself, Republican. leaders, InslsUng it is dead, express willingness to quit the.'r filibuster lt the senate will take up .t?^Be??*h-? bMhi.

Insurgent Democrats ? opposed the measure because they thought its character too permanent. Senator Harwick sought to amend the motion to send the bill to 'conference with the instruction that it be mada, termi nable two yeurs after the war. This was defeated with progressive Repub lican votes. Despite the uncertainty of the sit uation, senate and house leuders felt confident there will be no extra ses sion of congress and that the ship purchano bill, if not sent \o confer ence, would be displaced in tho s?n ats by appropriation bills. The re port persists that as many of the sup ply measures that as can be passed before March 4 will bo disposed of and that joint resolutions continuing existing appropriations for other de partments will be adopted wherever necessary. , Administration leaders held a long conference late in the day and con sidered several proposals to the Re publicans for ending the filibuster by sending the bill to conference. No agreement was reached, however, and the Democratic leaders Bought to hold tho senato in seuslon for the night, thinking this might bring about some compromise. They wero unable to get progressive Republicans to stand with them and a motiaon to adjourn car ried.
