Secretary of War and the Secretary of

This statement was Issued after It
had been acknowledged that the Presi

.insuring them of bis deep Interest In the
plans which they are undertaking for
the Improvement of tho national de
fences and pointing out the necessity of

The Issuing of the White House state
ment is the tlrst tangible evidence that
has appeared that the campaign started
by IteprmenUtlvo Gardner of Massa
chusetts nr.d now countrywide in Its
scopo has brought the President to thj
point of entering upon n programme of
Increased military development. The
clmnge In tho President's attitude has
been very marked.
Secretary Garrison has not yet de
cided dellultely upon his plans, but it
was learned to-ilay that at present they
contemplate making available a first Una
defence of 700,000 or SOO.OuO men, The
Piosent land forces of the United States,
ncludlng militia, total only about S00,
000. It is the understanding hero that Sec
retary Garrison's forthcoming recom
mendations will be the most complete of
their character that havo ever been made
by a Secretary of War. It is said that
he will tell tho country frankly Just what
he and Ids military advisers are satis
fied is tho minimum land force that
ought to be available for the defence of
tne t'nlted states. It Is understood that
tile plans which Secretary G.inlson now
has under consideration probably will In

Ontl.uOO a year, almost double the amount

among other things th creation of a

Swiss stem. Many ft.tr that the
Garrison plan in order to be worked out
successfully would have to Include com

The plans now being formulated also

As viewed here, the President's note Is

If this view of the communication pre

opinion of tho German people Is likely
to be aroused and that the situation

If, on the other hand, th German
people shall emphasise chiefly the
friendly character of the communica
tion and the Present's willingness to
cooperute with elermauy to maintain
freedom of th seas, together with the
Intimation that he will assert the rights
of tho United States against Hnglatid,
the situation will be encouraging.
The President and his advisers are 1
extremely hopeful that the latter fea

deeply upon the German mind mid will
serve to modify tho harsh feeling that
Is likely to arise because of the firm
stand taken by the United States. If
