Senator Bailey Voices General View
of Minority on Substitute
to Aldrich Bill.
GOOD AND EVIL OF THE
Goverament's Right aod Duty lo Supply
Currency Mainiained—Overuse of
Credits Cause of Panics—Too
Much Law Menace to Progress.
WASHINGTON, March 9.—Senator Jos.
W. Bailey of Texas, a member of the
Senate Committee on Finance, from
which the Aldrich currency bill whs re-
ported, addressed the Senate today at
length, and generally voiced the views of
the minority upon the subject of emer-
gency currency. He did not believe his
substitute for the Aldrich bill would re-
sult in inflation, although it provided for
JfrfKXOOO.OOU as a permanent part ol our
money supply. Mr. Bailey said in part;
'A practical test win always demon-
strate whether tho currency is deficient
or redundant, because either error will
manifest itself in tho most unmistakable
way. On the one hand, if the volume is
not sufficient, we will witness a general
fall of pricos, a curtailment of produc-
tion, and a restriction of business in all
lines. On the other hand, an excessive
issue will bo followed by artificially
high prices, stimulating an unhealthy de-
velopment, and culminating ut last 111 an
eta of injurious speculation. Hut. sir,
while It Is easy to detect tho over-issue
or the under-issue of currency, it is not
so easy to remedy tho mistake after ii
has been discovered.
•But, Mr. President, under any finan-
cial system it will always happen in a
new and rapidly developing country iik
our.s that extraordinary situations will
arise, and extraordinary provision must
be made to meet them. Nothing could
be plainer than that a volume ot cur-
rency which is entirely adequate for nor-
mal times and under normal conditions
is entirely inadequate for abnormal times
and under abnormal conditions. No mat-
ter how we may differ as to the causes
of our panics, it if enough to know taat
they come upon us from time to time;
and it is too much to hope u.at we will
ever reach a period when we will be
altogether free from such disturbances.
"Not only is the necessity for an emer-
gency provision in our financial system
fully established by our own experience,
but we also have the experience of other
countries to instruct us on that question.
The financial systems of Germany and
France provide for such emergencies as
that through which we have recently
passed, atid have reduced the evil con-
sequences of them to a minimum. The
law of Great Britain distinctly forbids
the relief which these extraordinary oc-
casions demand, but their law in that
respect has been repeatedly disregarded
with the express sanction of the King's
Opposed to Inflation.
"I am as much opposed to inflation as
any living man; and I am opposed to it
both as a matter of principle and as a
matter of duty to my constituents. The
intelligent and industrious men in Texas
who are engaged in tho cultivation of
cotton would suffer much by an infla-
tion of the currency, which would in-
crease the price of almost every article
which they buy, and they would not
benefit by the Reneral rise of price*
thus produced, because the price of their
cotton is fixed in the great markets of
the world where the currency of the
I "nited States exerts no influence over
prices. It is universally accepted as an
axiom that the currency of a country
can only affect the prices of those com-
modities whose prices are fixcu in tho
local markets of that country; and no
amount ot currency issued in this coun-
try can affect the price of eommod.-.es
in other countries, except so far, and
only so far, as the use of that currency
may diminish our demand for gold
Banks Improvised Larger Inflation.
"The entire which the Aid-
rich bill allows the banks to issue, and
which my substitute requires the Gov-
ernment to deposit, is less than the sev-
eral sums which the banks themselves
improvised during our recent financial
crisis. We know that as much as $190.-
000,000 In clearing house certificates worn
Issued; we know that something like $?.>,.
000,000 in checks and notes were issued
by the banks, clearing houses and others;
we know that something more than $90,-
000.WO of National bank notes were taken
out; we kn6w that more than $1"0,000,000
of gold was imported, and we know that
the Government of the t'nited States
scraped the bottom of its Treasury for
the additional $70.0[M).000 which it deposit-
ed with the banks; and yet. sir. in spite
of all this, all of the banks in New York
City, as well as many In other parts of
the country, refused to pay out money
over their counters, and limited the right
of their depositors to check for cash
against the money which belonged to
them, and which they had a perfect legal
and moral right to demand.
"I am clearly of the opinion that the
larger the amount which could be pot
In circulation the less ant we would be
to need any of it; nnd that belief is born
of and justified by the knowledge that
In every Impending financial crisis there
are manv men who deliberately seek to
aggravate the trouble. In every commu-
nity there are shylocks who are always
striving to drive hard bargains with
some embarrassed debtor, and they re-
joice in a condition which appalls better
men. They traffic upon the misfortunes
of their neighbors, and they realize their
greatest profits out of the general dis-
tress. Whenever a monetary convulsion
is imminent and other men are seeking
to avert it. these shylocks strive to bring
it on. Instead of putting more monev
into circulation, thev withdraw "verv
dollar which thev can lav their hands
on. and put It aside for th« rinuVe nur-
pose of creating a panic and then taking

Armor Belt Location and Turret
Construction Held to Be
Faulty by Witnesses.
SAYS SHIPS ARE BEST
Senate Committee on Naval Affairs Rear
Testimony Concerning Criticisms
That Were Ignored and Oth*
ers That Bore Fruit.
WAS111 NOTON. March 0.—Testimony
was adduced today before the Senate
Committee on Naval Affairs, which is
investigating the criticisms of battleship
construction, showing that the location
of the armor belt of American battle-
ships is too low On the other hand, a
letter from Secretary Metralf was read
declaring it to be the opinion of the
Board of Construetion and Rear Admi-
rals Kvans and Brownson that the armor
belt lines of the battleships Delaware and
North Dakota were right. The Secre-
tary in his communication took occasion
to declare that American battleships
were superior to those of any other
The witnesses today were. Lieut. Rich-
ard D White, assistant, inspector of tar-
get practice, and Rear Admirals Goor#'-
D. Kaiiicy and S. F. Goodrich. Lieuten-
ant White was the first to take the
stand. In reference to the location of
the armor belt, he snid that If it were
possible for a ship to get into action at
the designed loaded draft, the present
location would be about right, but that
It was his observation that the ships had
greater drafts than those designed. He
thought the drafts would hi still greater
under war conditions. His opinion was
the same as that of Commander Sims,
who is t lie in# pec tor of target practice.
Concerning the construction of turret
he said that saf< c demands lhat the
turret pvop.-i sha ! he struct- 'v sepa-

Recommendation Was Disapproved.
Chairman Hale read a letter from Sec-
retary Metcalf stating that after tho
plans for the battleships Delaware and
North Dakota had been approved, an
officer (Lieutenant-Commander Hill) r«
commended that the armor belt should
be raised thirty inches. The department
offered his criticism to the Board of Con-
struction and the original designs were
declared to be right. The officer made
rejoinder, and the matter was then re-
ferred to Rear Admirals Rrownson and
Kvans, who also declared that the belt
was correctly located.
Secretary Metcalf called attention to
the fact that the Delaware and North
Dakota are to be equipped with the two
stage hoists, and "there is no ground for
further contention as to the location of
the armor b< It
Answering general criticisms. Secretary
Metcalf said "Our nhips are not in-
ferior. type for type, in their own period
of construction to vessels of other navies.

tired, told the committee b* thought it
the duty of a commander of f battleship
to have full stores on board. If possible,
in going into battle, with coal bunkers at
least two-thirds full.
Admiral Goodrich Heard.
Admiral C. F. Goodrich, commandant
of the New i ork navy-yard, was the
next witness He said he called atten-
tion years before to such defects as were
alleged by Reuterdahl.
He was asked by Mr. Hale if he would
subscribe to Reuterdahl's statement that
if our ships went, into action they would
be no better off than the Russian ships
when they went into battle with the
"Oh. no. sir." he replied, his positive,
manner indicating that lie thought there
could be no comparison.
Tri regard to the location of the armor
belt, he sai«l he concurred absolutely in
the testimony of Rear Admiral Remey.
Later the witness said Admiral Remey
expressed his view also in regard to the
question of ammunition hoists.
"Have you made reports to the de-
portment criticising any matter of con-
struction0" asked Mr. Tillman.
"I have, n-plied the admiral, and. an-
swering other questions, said he had
criticised the location of the armor belt.
Pressed for more definite replies, the
witness said he thought the armor belt
too low. He thought the water line
should approximately divide the armor
belt with half above and half'be!ow the
Discouragement of Criticism,
Mr. Tillman returned to the charge that
officers had been discouraged from mak-
ing suggest Ions or criticisms, and de-
manded Admiral Goodrich's experience.
"I have made several suggestions which
have not borne fruit. Do you want a
"1 want something tangible," replied
Admiral Goodrich said that in 1002 he
had recommended the abolition of the
military masts, with their fighting tops.
The ships now being designed, lie said,
do not have these t'ignting tops.
"Then the suggestion did not fall on
barren ground?" said Mr. Tillman.
"I cannot flatter myself that my letter
had anything to do with the decision to
do way with this feature," said the ad-
"At least you can say, 'I told you so-' "
persisted Mr. Tillman.
"Like the chairman. 1 have a New Eng-
land conscience: I cannot take the
credit, ' responded the admiral.
The hearing will be resumed tomorrow
at 10 JO a. m.
