British munitions company, contracts
for a large number of navy armor

$200 each below the lowest American

used by foreign navies at a reasonable
price is necessary to enable the public
to understand what has been going
Referring to a report in certain
American trade journals that the Brit

of creating a panic in the American

no appreciable effect upon the market
Mr. Daniels says the Bethlehem
Steel company, which "has been fill
ing the papers with advertisements
criticising the department," admitted
in one of these publications that it
had failed to make satisfactory shells
on a contract awarded two years ago.
"Until it is able to fill its contracts,"
he adds, "it does not become the
Bethlehem company to criticise the
Navy department for awarding con
tracts to manufacturers who can make
shells that meet the tests. I regard
the attitude of these companies in this
and in other matters as most unfor
tunate and were there no relief
through competition either bv the
government or by other more patri
otic firms, I would feel that they were
putting our entire program of pre
paredness in peril. The department
wishes to give all of its orders to
American manufacturers whenever
they quote reasonable prices and fur
nish shells that meet navy require
ments. Nothing but the utter failure
of the most patient negotiations and
appeals to the patriotism of the little
group of steel manufacturers who
have a practical monopoly of this
business have made it imperative for
the government to build a projectile
factory and give a contract to a for

CATERING TO JAIL
Or Perhaps Clarence Tostevin,
Restaurateur, 'is Merely
Testing New Law.
BIDS WOULD SAVE MONET
The jail feeding question is again
projected, this time by Clarence W.
Tostevin, restaurant owner at 2405)4
N street, Sooth Side, who has filed
an application with the commisioners
asking for the appointment as the
official caterer for prisoners.
Under the present law, passed by
the legislature after Felix McShane,
former sheriff, went into office, the
sheriff is entitled to 32 cents a day
for feeding each prisoner. Prior to
the McShane regime the county board
let the feeding to the best bidder.
Following the election of Mike
Clark, a republican, as sheriff, and the
reorganization of the. present demo
cratic county board, the word was
passed among the wiseacres that an
effort would be made to have the
law changed so that the commission
ers could ask for bids. The filing of
1 ostevm s application and other buz
zings are said to be preliminary
Big Saving Possible.
According to the dope, several
thousand dollars a year could be
saved under the system of asking for
bids. McShane was allowed 32 cents
a day for each prisoner. It is be
lieved that the board will expect the
successful bid to be under 20 cents
if the law is changed. .
It has been estimated that in for
mer years the actual cost of feeding
each prisoner was about ll'A cents.
Even under the present H. C. of L.,
the wise one's say, the cost should
not exceed 14 cents.
The number of prisoners in the
county jail varies from 150 to 300
the 'year 'round.
