Desire to Continue On Duty
In Philippines Because
Trouble Is In Sight
Washington, D. C, Oct. 25. The
navy department' today authorized
the Installation of fire control on the
Pacific fleet. This provides for the
new system of range finding and fire
control to be Installed In the Ne
braska, Pennsylvania, Colorado,
Maryland, West Virginia, South Da
kota, Milwaukee and Charleston.
Regarding the persistent criticism
In this country and abroad regard
ing the policy of sending- the battle
ship fleet to Pacific waters of the
United States, Metcalf today declared
that no pressure could prevent the
fleet from going and that the result
would be a larger navy for this
He remarked that to withdraw the
order for the fleet to sail would be
to stultify this government and make
it a laughing stock, as it alone was
the judge of the policy Involved in
ordering the fleet to take the long
cruise. No other government, he in
sisted, had any right to question the
movements of the United States navy
in its own waters. As to the criti
cisms that the fleet was not. in con
dition to make such a trip, he said
they were unfoundtd and that the
ships could tiave lert on twelve
hours' not" after the assembly In
Hampton Uoads. Moreover, Admdral
Kvans has said that he could get his
fleet in action at a moment's notice.
Would Remain in Island. - '
There" are strong surface inflica
tions that 'Important military devel
opments are looked lor in the rnu
inilna islands In the, near future.
Chief among the things pointing
to that conclusion is the fact tnat
Malor General Leonard Wood, com
manding that military division, and
Brigadier General Tasker H. Bliss,
commanding the department of Min
danao, have asked for further service
in the archipelago.
General Wood will start for the
United States next month by way of
Europe to take command of the de
partment of the east at New York,
as relief of Major General P. D.
Grant, who Js to be transferred to
Chicago to command the department
of the lakes.
Wood Will go Hack.
Major General John F. Weston.
now commanding the department of
Luzon, will succeed General wood
in command of the troops in the
Philippines. After a brief stay In the
United States General wood plans to
return to the islands and resume
command. General Weston would
then resume his duties at Manila.
It Is understood that General Wood
has asked that this be done and that
the president has approved his ap
plication. iGeneral Bliss also has asked that
he be continued in command in the
Philippines for another two years
following his present term ot service
in tha islands.
The circumstances are regarded of
more than ordinary significance In
view of the possibilities for trouble
in connection with discrimination
against Orientals uy the United
States and also with the mainten
ance of the open door In China.
When the fortification works in the
Philippines now In progress are
completed, within the next two years
the islands will be a military base or

COM MISSION FOR
National Civic Federation
Adopts Strong Resolutions
Regarding Future Legis
lation of That Sort.
PUBLIC IN GENERAL
Prof. tCore Tells Big Audience
That Trusts Are Not All Evil
But Should Be Con
trolled By Proper
Chicago, 111., Oct. 25. Today's
session of the National Civic Feder
ation was given over to five minute
talks by business men who discussed
various topics introduced by various
speakers during the last three days.
The resolutions Introduced demand
that the railroads be permitted to
agree upon reasonable freight and
passenger rates subject to the ap
proval and supervision of the inter
state commerce commission. They
urge congress to pass legislation pro
viding for a non-partisan commis
sion in whloh the Interests of capi
tal, labor, and the general public
shall be represented, this commission
to consider the entire subject of
business and industrial combinations
and report such proposals as to the
formation, capitalization, manage
ment and regulation of corporations
as shall preverse the Individual in
itiative, competition, and exercise of
free contract In all business and In
Nothing Evil in Trusts.
In his address this morning' be
fore the federation, Prof. J. H.
Gore, of the George .Washington uni
versity, poke In part as follows:
"There is nothing Inherontly 'evil
In trusts. A disregard of the obli
gations to the community in the at
tempt to lessen, because of the great
er resources, the -expense ot produc
tion and at the -same .time " .put up
the price of the product through a
control of the market, is responsible
for the lllrertate into which some of
the combinations have fallen and
the suspicion under which the others
rest. Remove the railroad corpora
tions into their integral concerns
and we find ourselves In the midst
of conditions that prevailed 30 years
ago. Prohibit co-operative Indus
tries and we will see the farmer
Journey from wood-worker to black
smith shop and then to the -painter
to have made a plow which he can
not buy with the time these Journeys
would cost. Restrict production to
single lines and we would find In
scrap-heaps waste materials that
now meet the cost of production.
In the Iu.st.
"In our country's youth surplus
capital was not available for the cre
ation of great enterprises and for
eign money was slow to come so far
for investment In precarious indus
tries, so man associated himself with
man, Joined his small means to that
of others and in co-operation achiev
ed results which, in older countries,
might have rewarded Individual ef
forts. They were democratic organi
zations suited to our democratic In
stincts. In the natural economic de
velopment, greater concentration of
capital was needed to make possible
a more minute differentiation of
talent and a higher Integration of
industrial energy, until now we have
a precision that means accurate re
lation of supply to demand: orga
nized employers treating with orga
nized labor Insuring permanency In
production, and elaborated means of
distribution reaching the uttermost
parts of the earth and making the
world our market.
"As productive methods become
more and more specialized, expert
management in more and more de
manded and the purchaser of the
smallest fraction of the output reaps
the benefits of thU superior skill.
When the market is world-wide we
have the highest example of business
buyers; we have the most conserva
tive management, for recklessness
would he fatal when months inter
vene between orders and settlement;
we have the closest study of econo
mies of production, for loss of trade
has sharpened the wit of every com
petitor: and we have through the
greater elasticity of foreign trade a
more sure response to every demand.
Capital lla-s Grown.
'The capital has grown from the
dollar or two needed to buy the cob
blers awl and hammer to the mil
lions required to engage the world's
trade. These millions are giving us
cheaper goods; they are widening
our knowledge and broadening our
sympathies; they are knitting peo
ples together through common
wants; they ure steadying economic
conditions and deferring panics; they
vouchsafe to labor remunerative em
ployment; they t.ke materials to
waiting factories, transmute them
Into acceptable forms and set them
down in every quarter of the globe
where 11 pa have framed a heart's
"Jn return for this, these millions
deserve Just returns, and as long as
they ask that alone. It will surely
come. And we, the beneficiaries of
all that results from this last stage
in the economic development of our
country, ask a cessation of the ac
tivities of those demagogues who,
seeking to emulate others, ignorant
ly and. evilly assail concentrated cap
ital in periods of popular prejudice
by grotesque legislation and hamper
lis usefulness by uneconomic laws."

East Las Vegas, N. M., Oct. 25,
(Spn-ial.) C. A. Spless, a local at

who was elected.
Mr. Money is also a son of U. S.
Senator Money, of Mississippi, and
one of the most prominent men In
the state of Mississippi.
Attorney Ppless knows consider

take up. as the killing for whlch

when Money came to New Mexico.
It was the result of a quarrel in

The killing in which Money w

In Mississippi and the case would
probably never have been taken up
had It not been for the fact that a
cousin of Money's killed a man a

pistols. The cousin was acquitted on -,
a plea of self defense. Relatives ot
the man who was killed, however,
are said to have recalled the fact
that George P. Money had never
been tried for the affair In which he
killed a man and called the matter
to the uttentlon of the official, who
succeeded in securing Money's in

' Money declared that he would re

believing that he would be acquitted.
It was well known In this terri

before he came here. He was one
of the most peaceable of men, but
