Hobson Wanted to Build Three Ship*,
but Hi* Amendment Wa»
Finally Cut Out.
Washington—By a decisive vote ot
182 to lltt. fourteen being present and
ret voting, the house authorised the
construction of two battleships to
cost *8'\m,000 each. Thirty-three
democrats voted for two tutttieships
and t^^Stv-four republicans against
the pr^vs^Sor.
This action was taken just prior to
the passage of the naval appropria
tion bill, carrying $l2!ktVS7,«X'2. This
amount :s about SlvtXXVvXX' less thsa
was recommended hy the Navy de
partment. In addition to the battle
ships the bill also provides for the
construction of two fleet colliers and
four submarine boats
As amended on motion of Mr. Fit*
gerald of New York, the two battle
ships and two feet colliers must be
constructed by firms operating under
the eight-hour law.
After fixing an hour and one-half as
the time for debating amendments for
the authorisation of battleships the
house wasted a large part of that
time in a parliamentary contention
concerning the manner in which the
time would be divided between the
two side's The debate proceeded un
der the five-minute rule.
The committee on naval affairs had
reported in favor of authorixing two
battleships. Mr Tawney of Minne
sota. chairman of the appropriations
committee, offered an amendment
providing for only one battleship,
w hile Mr. Hobson proposed an amend
ment providing for three
Mr. .Hobson contended that three
battleships would give no increase,
but would provide only for the ordi
nary depreciation in the naval force.
By an almost unanimous, vote tha
house rejected the proposition.
Mr. Gronna of North Dakota moved
to strike out the authoriiation for the
construction of any battleships, a viva
voce vote showing there were not a
handful advocates of a "no battle
ship" policy.
Speaking in favor of his onobattle
•hip plan - Mr Tawney reiterated his
statement that Ti per cent of th*
revenue of the country was being ex
pended for wars that had pissed and
for preparation for wars to come. He
declared that one battleship was su!
fleient to maintain the proper
strength of the navy.
Mr, Thomas of Ohio proposed an
amendment for four battleships, but
the house voted it down, almost un
antuNoualy Mr Tawney's amendment
for one battleship was also lost by a
vote of HM to 11!S At least thirty
democrats voted w :;h the republican*
against Mr Tawney's plan
Mr, Goidtogie offered an amend
ment providing that at leas: one bat
tleship should be constructed at a
navy yard, the second to be built
either by contract or at a navy yard
Viter extended discussion Mr Mann
of Illinois, who Occupied the chair, de
clared the amendment to be out of
An effort was made by Mr N\-rr <
of Nebraska, an "insurgent." to
amend the bill to provide for one bat
| lleship and six transports, the latter
1 to cost $1,000,000 each The amend
ment was ruled out of order,
Representative J Hahmpton Moore
of Philadelphia attempted to induce
the house to limit the draft of the
r.j'w battleships to thirty feet, but his
amendment for that purpose was re
jected Various other amendments
were offered to - control the building
! of the battleships under the operation
of the eight-hour law and within navy
yards, but they were all ruled out of
order. Thirty-three democrats voted
with the republicans for two battle
ships. while twenty four republicans
joined the democrats in favor of one
