J » Jt J » Wanton Waste ANOTHER BIG BATTLESHIP was launched last month and three or four million dollars more of our national wealth was taken from active industry and devoted to uses that will not provide bread nor comfort . But this three or four million is but a fraction of what is similarly wasted by this and other nations . Last year the seven great naval powers of the world spent $ 797 , 948 , 900 upon their war . fleet * . The United States alone spent $ 140 , 800 , 643 , more than twice as much as in 1863 , when the war between the states was raging .
