Mr. HALE spoke in favor of the amendment.
He asked Senators whether they approved of
the course of the Secretary of the Navy. The
latter was no doubt an limiest map, but he had
made a mistake. He said he (Mr. Halt) al
walls seemed unfortunate in attempts of this
kind. If he attacked a small man then it was
too small business. Theo if he went up
