have not been wasted. They have
attacked the Secretary of War as a
"pacifist" in disguise. They have
done everything possible to discredit
him, when their sole "plan of cam

uses the terms of "world politics"

extreme In words than it was thought
possible for any one to be in fact.

it will pass the Senate, though It is

can make It worth.
Before disposing of the agricultural
bill, the House struck out the entire
section giving the Secretary of Agri
culture authority "to provide for ana
secure the voluntary mobilization of
farm labor." The bill then passed and
the House took up one of the most Im

for the Committee on Public Lands.
He opened the argument for It on me

The regular order in the Senate was
the bill for educating maimed vet
erans, discharged after service In Eu
rope, as no longer fit for war. Tne
original idea of the bill was compul
sory education for them on the theory
that otherwise they might become "a
charge on the public. This theory
has been almost eliminated, as the
only compulsion to be used under
the till Is through stoppage or their
money allowance ir they are found
rerractory as pupils. This Is certainly
pusillanimous. It Is not an American
method ot dealing with Americans
who have made sacrifices for liberty.
It Is not "safe for democracy." The
bill was still under discussion at the
hour for adjournment.

.senator Shafroth asked prompt
passage on behalf of the Banking
Committee for two bills, drawn by the
Comptroller of the Currency.' One
forbade knire-erasures on bank books
and extended the system of bonding
employes. To minimize frauds, fig
ures to be erased, were to be crossed
and left legible. Senator Smoot ob
jected to having, "primer lessons'
given the bankers of the country by
the Comptroller. The bill was defeat
ed, as a means of educating the
Comptroller In his proper relations to
the national banking system. A sec
ond bill was referred back, to the com
mittee. It provided for a Federal
law, re-enforcing State laws against
making false statements In securing
loans or credits.
Senator Gary's bill for Federal
control of Congressional elections
"went over." He exposed political
rottenness In Rhode Island elections,
and Senator Townsend suggested that
the worst frauds practiced were In
primary elections. If the discussion
goes much further It will be a ques
tion or the limits Imposed by the new
"sedition" bill. The bill will not pass.
