Completion of Naval Pro-
gram Will See America
Washington D. C Aug. 18. The
rapid rise of the United States as a
naval power during the past two
years Is graphically demonstrated in
figures showing the sea strength of
the various world powers compiled by
the navy department's office of naval
intelligence. They show that the
United States close pressed by
France in 1S17 for its place as third
naval power In the world. Is now sec
ond only to Great Britain and Is at
present pushing to completion a build-
ing program that will make the
American navy for the first time In
recent his tori a' formidable con-
tender for first naval honors.
A little more than two years ago.
the figures show. Germany then sec-
ond naval Dover boasted more than
100 more ships of all elapses than the
united states wan a total tonnage
exceeding that of the American nay
by nearly 200000 tons. Great Britain s
fleet at that time numbered a total of
680 ships aggregating !.J75.51 tons
as compared with Germany's 262
ships and 1.058.240 tons and the
United States 153 ships and s60.li
Germany liana. Third.
Today Germany now in third place
among naval powers has a "paper"
navy of 450 ships of all types totaling
826637 tons. These figures do not in-
clude German vessels surrendered to
the allies or Russian vessels in the
nands of the Germans. Regarded from
the standpoint of fighting efflelency
as distinguished from number of
ships and tonnage. Germany is out-
classed by both France and Japan
her navy being composed almost en-
tirely of old and obsolete vessels. The
pride of Germany's power was surren-
dered to the allies at Scapa Flow
here many of them were sunk by
tneir officers and crews.

point of modern fighting strength ac
cording to the navy department's
figures. Is: Great Britain. United
States. Japan. France Germany. Rus-

The completion of all vessels now

the most authentic figures available
at tne navy department.

ried out by the United States during

figures and has about 20 under con-

Great Britain emerged from the
war with by far the most powerful
battleship and battle cruiser force In

able aggregation of major ship?. Kng-

Official reports from MaJ. Gen
Dlckman. commander of the southern
department concerning the detention
of the aviators were received today
at the war department but secretary
Baker refused to make them public
saying the state department had en-
tire supervision over the matter.
As soon as he reached his office this
morning Mr. Baker went Into confer-
ence with several bureau chiefs but
there was no information that the
Mexican situation was discussed.
The eaptnre and detention of

strained relations between the two
countries to be regarded ihere today
as having reached a stage bordering
cn the acute. Official Washington as
well as the entire diplomatic corps
were awaiting developments with
keen Interest as the serious potential-
ities should harm befall the f'yers

Baker Quizzed by Senators.
Secretary Baker told a senate com-
mittee today that there was some un
certainty as to whether the aviators
had landed by mistake in Mexico or.
as they claimed had landed on the
American side and were captured
there. He added however that he did
not ca v to go into any more details
than those already published.
"But it Is Just another evidence of
the inability or the Mexican govern
ment to preserve order In that coun-
try. Isn't ItT" asked senator Suther

The secretary replied that the men
had been captured in the Big Bend
country which he explained was
"wild and sparsely settled.
