officers charges asfc has been thinking that he Navy Department had un making the race but he never be successfully prolonged the war fore made a public declaration re through failure to cooperate Siding the matter at first with allied naval forces The i barrage Daniels added was the most effective measure taken to check the submarines and was wholly an American idea The Secretary also charged that Sims had attempted in his testimony to rob the navy of credit for this porject and to give it to the Brit ish Sims Opposed Mine Barrage The plan was said in the Bureau of Ordnance at the Navy Department and urged on the British Admiralty for six months be fore it was accepted During this time Admiral Sims constantly dis couraged and opposed the r idea he added and when AdmiralMayo was sent abroad and finally convinced the Admiralty of the worth of the scheme and the necessity for adopt ing it Admiral Sims attempted to convey the impression that the pro ject had been delayed while the Brit ish attempted to get Navy Departments Admiral Sims attempted to rob America and the United States Navy of the credit for initiating this great achievement and to give the impres sion that it was a British plan which our navy merely assisted in carry ing out though it originated in the Navy Department was proposed and urged by us for half a year before we could induce the British Admir alty to approve it and although four fifths of it was composed of Ameri can mines designed and constructed in America and transported 3400 miles oversea andlaid by American Daniels told the commit tee No Lack of Harmony He said close comradeship had ex isted between the American and British navies during the war de spite Admiral Sims attempts to create the imperssion that there was lack of harmony and cooperation The Sims charges of unprepared ness before the war were not justi fied Daniels asserted declaring that in July 1915 he ordered the general board to study and recommend plans for a consistent and progressive de As a result of this study the policy was evolved he said that the United States must by 1925 have a navy equal to any other in the worldHe approved this policy and the direct result was the fiveyear building program of 1916 the Secretary said an epoch mak ing President Wilson fully approved the policy the wit ness asserted This is conclusive evidence that the Navy Department longbefore war was declared was alive to the importance of preparedness and was taking every step toward that he declared The vision of the President Dan iels asserted established the fact that he was in advance of some of ficers vocal now but silent Dewey is one of the countys best farmers and stockmen and has long been identified in a large way with those interests of the county Friends maintain the farmers of the county insist up on him running and predict he is certain to enter the race against Congressman Nelson vHis letter to Mr Markway follows in full I note what you say in your re favor that there is a strong sentiment in the country that some practical farmer ran forCongerss in this district and that there is a de mand for such a man outside of party lines I also thank you for your many kind expressions in which you urge me to become a candidate for the Democratic nomination So many of my friends have re cently asked me if I intend to be come a candidate for Congress in this district that I have determined to let my farmer friends in Cole County decide the matter for me If in some manner the farmers of this county would indicate that they want me to present my name at this time and will give me their hearty support I will file my declaration as a candidate I would do this mainly in an effort to be of some service to the farmers and livestock interest of this section rather than for any personal reason as I believe it would be at some sacrifice to my farming KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS AFTER STATE MEETING Claims of Capital City Are Be ing Urged at
