We have undertaken voluntarily to
construct, at a coat of $4,600,000, a
plant fitted to build slxteen-lncb guns.
Under no conceivable circumstances
can orders which we may receive for
this plant pay even a fair return on
Considerable comment has been made
upon the fact that a British manufac
turer recently bid less than American
manufacturers for sixteen and four
teen-inch shells, for tho navy.
I am unable, to state the basis upon
which the English bid was made. It
should bo remembered, however, that
this bid was for a specific shell, sam
ples of which aro being sent over for
test-a test hot yet made.

Two years ago wo took an order tot

at a contract pglce of $768,000, to be
delivered within a certain time or we
had to pay a large penalty.
Tho only specifications for making
these shells aro that they Bhall be
of a certain size and must pierce
armor-plate at a certain velocity on Im
pact. It is impossible to foretell the
exact conditions of the tests.
, We bad made large quantities of shells
In the post which had been accopted.

We bid on these shells at approxi
mately the same rate per pound as
that of a fourteen-inch shell contract
of one year ago upon which tke Gov

We have not the slightest Idea what
profit there will be In the mahlng of
these BheUs. We die not know that
there wiU be any. Thera Is no certain,
ty that It would be possible for ns to
deliver a shell to meet the test.
For officers in tbs Navy to assume
that any bid made under such condi
tions Is "exorbitant” is utterly unfair.
We bid on the new battle-cruisers

after examination of our hooks, found
would yield a profit of less than tsn
per cent. We agreed to assume risks
