TILLMAN GIVES OUT
Senator Says Admiral's Utterances
Are Due to Wounded Vanity
and Disappointed Ambition.
LODGE DEFENDS NAVAL OFFICER
WASHINGTON, May 3. Hear Ad
Pilral Hradley A. Flake's letter to
the senate, taking Ihbiio with Sec
retary Daniels for the latter' state
ment that he never had been fur
nished a copy of Admiral Fluke's
letter warning the department of the
unprepared state of the navy In
1014, was made public today hy
Chairman Tillman of the naval com
mittee. In aubmlttlng the letter Senator
Tillman said Secretary Daniels
courted investigation if one wa de
pended. 'The secretary of the navy has noth
ing to conceal and courts an Investiga
tion If one Is demanded," said Senator
Tillman. "Ncltncr he nor his friends
here like this kind of sniping- or guer
Ills, warfare. Therefore, I content my
self with asking that Fluke's letter to
the vice president be published In the
record so that all may Judge how little
there really Is lo his utterances except
nisllce and wounded vanity. I'lsap
pointed ambition, too, has had much to
do with his conduct, lie has brooded
over what he supposes to be his wrong
until he seems to be ohaessed and J
really feel sorry for him."
Senator Lodge, defending Admiral
Flskc, said ho thought an Injustice hud
been done (he naval officer. "The sec
retary of tho ftavy has seen fit on sev-
eral occasions," he said, "to attack Ad
miral Tlske. Admiral Flsko Is as ofll
cer of the highest rank.
He lias had m
unblnmlahed career In the navy. He has
engaged In no guerilla warfare, but lias
only tho desire that Is the right of ev
ery honest man to protect his own repu

Wyoming ConCssman Likely to Be

on This Platform.
FEELING STRONG FOR JUSTICE
1 From a Htiiff Correspondent. 1
WASHINGTON, May 3. IHpe
clnl Telegram.) More and more iu
the drift to Hughe for president ot
the repulbh nn ticket, nepi esentatlve
Mondcll of Wyoming, who lias inado
a most envluhlo record as a lader
in the present congrena and who
may be sent as oue of the "big alx"
to Chicago although he Is an outright
prolestant iignlnMt the thought, In
upon king of the political si tun turn,
'.My malt and my frl-md toll me
many things politically about Wyoming.
They sy there. Is talk of Koosevelt;
some ipeak favorably of Iturton; that
there is a sentiment for Hurton and a
I most friendly feellnar for Horah. but
wlnn all Is said 1 am told that the
strongest sentiment In Wyoming Is for
Iliighr. If we knew that the associate
Justice would accept, I believe all would
be over hut the shouting."
W. C. Iiemlng, editor of the C'hyenn
Tribune, returning from New oVrk, in
attendance upon thn annual meeting of
the Associated Press, and stopping for a
dny In Washington, corroborated the
position of Mr. Mondcll In a very marked
degree, Mr. Iteming will be one of the
six delegate to be elected to the Chicago
, rom entlon from Wyoming at lis conven-
tlon on May t at Cheyenne.
Mr. Denting, In the course of a con
versation with The ctco correspondent
said thutt he consensu nf opinion of
newspaper publlshera at the New York
meotlng waa titan t Hughea would be nom
inated at Chicago. That the republicans,
were looking for a winner and thot the
name of Hughes wa liked by the fellow
who did the votlnr but cared little about
Senator Clark will deliver a keynote
speech before the Cheyenne convention
onxt Monday, but he, like Mr. Mondelt,
3oe ont watn to go to Chicago as a dele
gale and has ao announced to the repub
licans of Wyoming.
Hq believes six representative cltlr.ens
can bo found who will represent the
! state without culling on the Wyoming
.delegation In tho Slxty fotirth congress
to make half the delegation to Chicago.
' It seem almost a safe bet, however, that
