n up In a conference of Democratlo
advocatea of economy. The action of
tke houee naval affaira committee,
whan the Democrat, after an all-day
oonference, failed to reach an agree
ment to cut down the $141,000,000 to
be carried by the naval appropriation
bill, waa the principal aubject of dls
ouaalon by the 0 membera of tbe
houee who are determined upon econo
my. The party leaders are greatly dis
turbed by the apllt In tbe houee on
the question of approprlat'ona. The
appropriation bllla, according to Re
presentative Flttgerald. of New York,
chairman of the appropriations com
mittee, will place the country'a eipen
dltures at a point higher than has yet
been reached, and economy advocatea
declnre that the appropriations of thla
OonKress will be at leaat $100,000,000
over tbe billion mark.
The Democrata who are opposed to
the two battleship programme declare
that unless the amount carried by the
naval bill la materially reduced they
will prosecute a filibuster which will
