Administration Forcei Loie First
Skirmish in Sea Preparedness
FIVE-YEAR PLAN IS BEATEN
Washington, May 19. Administra-
tion forces in congress lost the first
skirmish in the naval preparedness
campaign yesterday when the house
committee broke a five-day deadlock
uid completed the naval appropria
tion bill, without approving the five
vear building program advocated by
1'rrsidcnt Wilson and Secretary
As finally, agreed to, the bill au
thorizes the construction in 1917 of
five battle cruisers, as against two
drradnaughts and two battle cruisers,
recommended by Secretary I)aniels;
four scout cruisers, an increase of one
scout over the department's program;
ten destroyers, as against fifteen
recommended; twenty submarines,
three to be 800-ton boats, compared
with five fleet and twenty-five coast
defense submarines recommended;
one hospital ship, one oil fuel ship
and one ammunition ship. .
v Largest Naval Item,
The gunboat recommended was
stricken cmt, and the furl snd ammu
nition ships were added from Secre
tary Daniels' program for the serond
year- The total amount carried by
the bill is $240,000,000, the largest
naval appropriation ever presented to
While the appropriation proposed,
if anything, an increase over the de
partment's plans, failure of the five
year program and the fact that no
dreadnaughts were provided for, make
the bill unsatisfactory to administra
tion officials. Secretary Daniels said
tonight he never lost hope of getting
what he asked for until congress ad
journed. It was clearly indicated that
the senate, which has not yet taken
up consideration of the naval bill even
in committee, was relied upon to re
store the battleships.
Thirteen Demos Oppose.
The deadlock in the house commit
tee followed a caucus of the eight re
publican members of tne committee at
which it was decided to oppose the
five-year program and to seek to in
crease the 1VI7 appropriations over
the figure suggested by the depart
ment. Five of the thirteen demo
crats not only opposed the continuing
program, but also were determined to
cut down the 1917 estimates and not
to vote for any battleship appropria
tion. Two German Ships
Reported Sunk by
London, May 19. The sinking of
two German steamships by a sub
marine, believed to be a Russian, is
reported in a Rcuter dispatch from
Stockholm. The iteamnhln were

tivity has stopped the movement of
numerous German vessels with car
goes of iron ore now at Oxloesund
and other ports.
The steamships were torpedoed
