Admiral Watt. Yo, sir.

The Chairmax. Then please insert your expenditures and your estimate for the next year.

Admiral Watt. Yes, sir. (See Appendixes V, VI, and IX.)

The CHAIRMAN. Under “Equipment" there is a large increase, and I would be glad if you would put in your hearings an itemized statement of your proportional part of that increase, showing the necessity for it and for what purpose it is to be used.

Admiral WATT. I will append to my hearings a statement of the expenditures which the committee has usually required of me. I have that ready.

The CHAIRMAN. Did you have a deficiency this year in equipment or any of your other items?

Admiral Watt. We expended under the construction and repair allotment of the Bureau of Equipment $15,505.76 more than the allotment, but that has been cared for by transfer from the unexpended balance of an allotment to another bureau.

The CHAIRMAN. Back to your bureau ?
Admiral WATT. Yes, sir.

The CHAIRMAN. To-morrow morning we will have Admiral Twining, of the Bureau of Ordnance, and we will ask Admiral Watt, to come up again, in order to take up the matter of the repair of the ship Portsmouth. Judge Raker desires to present some matters to the committee with reference to the Portsmouth, a ship of historic interest, and the department has recommended that some action be taken with reference to that and several of the other old historic ships.

Thereupon the committee adjourned to meet to-morrow, Saturday, January 4, 1913, at 10.30 o'clock a. m.
