Beef for Transport
Prairie is Rejected
WASHINGTON. May 14.-The Navy de
partment telegraphed the Philadelphia
Navy yard today for a full repor re
garding the rejection ot 3S.W0 pounds ot
beet delivered yesterday by the contractor
for use on the naval transport Prairie.
Only &M out ot a consignment ot 9.e0
pounds were accepted. The Prairie al
ready had S.S0S pounds aboard and so
sailed with M.OM pounds. This undoubt
edly will serve the force ten days. It la
said. If necessary the supply ship Culgoe,'
now at Norfolk, can be rushed with beef
to Goanatanamo. '
It la the first time the Navy department
haa had trouble with meat contractors
attempting to supply a ship under hurried
sailing orders with bad beet with the
Idea It would be compelled to accept It
or go without It is probable that the
meat at Philadelphia, may not have been
really bad. but waa rejected because It
would not keep long enough for use In
the tropics. It the meat waa below con
tract standard It wl'.l have the effect ot
barring the contractor from further bid
ding for navy trade, it was said at the
Navy department today.
