The ayctrago visage one glimpsed lu the 'xrridors of the Navy Department buiMing was far from cb.ferfu! w Vlur!nK the mriy days of. tho Loadon conference. As R'ear Admiral Haimiel S. Rotxnaon expresBed It (in a burnt of coafidetice at a meeting of the D, A. R.) the prospect of. sailing a "treaty ocern. in a treaty ship, with a treaty armament and a treaty creV did not "sol" wry well. However, naval sentiment has been inui h more optimistic since Senator Dai Id A. Reed, oJ the Atnerlcan dele- gat'cm at the London gathering, spake by radio from the English capital a few nights ago, outMnins the negotiations thus far. » * * At Geneva, In 1D27, said the Pesan- siylnuiia Senator, iiidi cations were that It would coB-t the Quitod. States $600,000,000 la now 1 ^vvar vess^le to Halt Uncle Sam's navy to an. eqwaKty w i i h John Biill's. , .ts a result o£ fils year's coufer- enoo, he predicted, It will be possible to do It at a cost ot only $450,000,000. While admitting that $150,000,000 is a. iUbstautial cut, naval man are disposed to console themselves witli*thp thought that tho reduced figure is st'U close enough to half a billion not to mean utter despair. Besides, It is far from certain that the $150,000,000 can be saved. * » · fformany, having betvn ruled out o£ nii/val competition almost completely (;,s was supposed), by tk treaty, gets into th.6 expert!)' tlous rather peculiarly.
