have to scrap niany of its ships whichha se n a om w t l ng r p i d

dition, and order thIe dismantling of

a view of ridding itself of the. suir-.r
plus mnaterial created by the jun~king
of these vessels, naval auction sales
were hect sh~d milion ofdollars3

were sold with. a great loss to the°
government of this country. Thesej
sales displayed a further effect :upon
teU. S. in that they flooded the,1
market with steel and created a slow
up in American business.
In this way, the treaty was rigor-
-ously carried out by the Unitedj States.i

But in its attempt to fulfill the con-
ditions of keeping the navy down,
the department seems to have dis-
played an 'extra amount of leniency
and have failed to realize that as time
passed, England and Japan were slow-
ly adding more ships to their navy,
and that the United States to main-
tain the 5-5-3 ratio, must necessarily
follow suit.
That we have allowed our, navy to
sink to third place seems to he the
opinioni'of, both Rep. Fred A. Britton,
of Chicago, and Rep. John Jiacob!)
Rogers,, of Massachusettes. Cur :coun-
try, with its. numerous islandl pos-
sessions, and its expanse of land openl
to the sea, "dbmiands, and ought to
demnd tha~t1our navybe equal to
that of Great 13ritafti 'or any other
power and that it be as contemiplated,,
in the Washington treaties at, least-
five-thirds. that .of.Japan.', It should
be as fundamental1 a policy of this1
-country' to maintain the 5-5-3 ratio as
it is to, maintain the Monroe doctrine.
But the people demand and ought to
demand that it be just as-fundamen.tal
of this country to maintain a 5-5-3
ratio and not one that is only 5-3-3.
