WASHINGTON. Jan. .-Abandonment
( th pros ram (or two battleehipa this
year brought out a statement from Secre
tary of tbt Navy Meyer .today. The
actloa of the democratic caucus last night
also' caused activity In the democratic I
ranks In congress, with the result that
another caucus to reconsider the matater
probably will be called.
Secretary Stayer arraigned the action
of the caucus as "giving another Illus
tration of government by snap Judgment."
Ha asserted that toe Monroe doctrine
la as big as the navy and no bigger and
that tna United States, guaranteeing the
neutrality of the Panama canal, must bs
prepared to make good Ita pledge.
"Even with a continuous program of
two battles hi pe a year." said Secretary
Meyer, "the United estates will fall a
little behind Its present effective strength
for the reason that In another year four
of our battleships, built during the same
period, will become non-effective.
"The dread naught type Is tha warship
of the Present dsy. One dreadnaught
built by a foreign power In excess of
tha number built by ourselrts la equiva
lent to wiping off our Hat at one stroke
tha "Indiana, Massachusetts, Oregon,
Iowa. Kearsarga and Kentucky. .
V "We have an enormous extent of coast
line; wa have Alaska, Porto Rico, the
Philippines and Hawaii, and we have the
obligation to guard and protect Cuba and
maintain Its neutrality. To perform these
obligations satisfactorily we must have
a atrong sea-going fleet. The only sura
defense of lha country and the only as
surance of safety la for the fleet to be
able to seek out Hi enemy on tha high
seas and to cripple or destroy It."
England, the statement declares, has au
thorised for the coming year five dread-
noughts and Germany three dreadnoughts
and one armored cruiser. Japan la said
to have authorised five ships of the lat
est dreadnought type and tha use of 17.-
Oo,"0 for new construction between mi
and 117. .

NEW YORK. Jan. FA-Dlrectors of the
United (Mates Steel corporation today
declared the regular quarterly dividend
of m per 'cent on the common stock.
Tha regular quarterly dividend of 1
per cent was declared on the preferred
I'nususl interest attache to the ex
hibit of earnings for the last quarter
of last year. The steel and Iron In
dustry, as Is welt known, is passing
through a period of much uncertainty
snd most finished products are now
selling at the lowest prices In some
years. It Is ripsrted that the report will
show a decline In demand for December,
compared with the month Immediately
Estimates ( the corporation's earnings
far tha last quarter of Wit range- from
SS.O0t.OM . to li..UUU0). . with here and
there eoine less favorable forecaets.

tha first three quarters of Mil no appro
prat Ions of any character were made.
Congressman George W. Norria says
that the only time he will U for Rooee-

he Is for the Wisconsin man. first, last
snd always, looks upon the colonel ss an
Interloper, and tells Colonel John O.
Yeiscr In polite terms that his proposition
to divide a delegation from Nebraska be
tween Roosevelt and La Follette Is Impu
dent In the extreme. All this In a lengthy
letter from the congressman to tha or
iginator and promoter of the Roosevelt
Band Wagon la Paula a.
in return, Mr. Yeiser begs to Inform
Mr. Norrts that the Roosevelt band
wagon la passing, moving rapidly, and
that the time to get aboard Is right now
Delays, says Mr. Yeleer, are dangerous.
and It may be that Congressman Norrls
will find himself lonesome when the vehi
cle has gone by. Mr. Velser points out
that the Roosevelt men are realty anxious
to get behind a candidate f ir the Inlted
States senstorshln, and, aa Brown Is out
spoken for Tart, and Norrls Is equally
committed to I.a Follette, It will perhaps
be necessary for them to put the third
candidate In the field. .
In this connection, Mr. Yeiser says Dial
he has been In correspondence with
Alexander H. Revel of Chicago, wh-j Is
chairman of the committee having in
charge the nationalising of the Roosevelt
movement. He has been aaked to come
Into Chicago for a conference on Feb
ruary f, Tuesday of next week, and ex
pects to attend. He also has a number
of letters from other Roosevelt boomers,
and all are encouraging tn tone and tell
of the progress the movement la making.

emphatic. He went so far as to say that
no friend of hla would propose such a

"My Dear Governor Wilson: Replying
to your note from the University club.
I think It should go without saying that
no purely personal Issue could arise be
tween you and me. Whatever anybody
alas may surmise, you sorely must know
that, In trying to arouse further your po
litical aspirations during the last few
years I hare been actuated solely by the

finding a wsy to counteract Its harmful

do In simple fairness to you, no Ies4
than In consideration of my own self
respect, waa to relieve you of your em

power to do so, by ceasing to advocate

club. It has left me uneasy, because. In

hurt yon by what I so tactlessly said at
tha Knickerbocker club. I am very much
ashamed of mysdf. for tilers la nothing
I am more ashamed of than hurting a'
true friend, however unintentional the
hurt may have been. I wanted very much'
to aes you In Washington, but was sbao-,

was In my rooms, and when I was not
there, was fulfilling publks engagements.
I saw yon at the dinner, but could not get
at you, and after the dinner was sur
