Many Others Will Submit Their rein
Claims-Gatherings to Nominate thel
Next President Probably Will Be to j
Early in June. gret
Washington.-The national commilt- heti
tees of the two political parties are arm
already beginning to prepare for next that
year's presideatial campaign. The por
first actual step by either of the old thei
party committees will be to select a tha
convention city. Each committee will dur
do this at a meeting which will be
held here about the middle of De- T
cember. Having decided where the nun
convention will be held, as well as in
the convention date, each committee the
will issue the formal call for the con- for
vention. Custom dictates that the istE
party that Is not represented by the 18.(
occupant of the White House shall ,,mu
hold its convention first, and unless thr
this custom shall be disregarded the con
Republicans will meet at least one of
week, and probably two weeks, In ad- for
vance of the Democrats. the
In 1916 the conventions were held ing
about two weeks earlier than ever be
fore, the Republicans meeting on June wil
9 at Chicago and the Democrats on neI
June 14 at St. Louis, and the represent- ale
atives of the parties seem to like the grE
idea of getting the nominations out the
of the way early in June. So it is gen- hol
erally assumed members of the na- del
tional committees say, that the con- of
ventions next year will be over by the fit
middle of June, or soon thereafter. foi
Many cities already have let It be me
known that they would like to enter- I
tain one or both of the old party
conventions. Chicago and St. Louis
have come to be known as favorite wi
political convention cities, and the pol- e
iticians express the view that it is al- ne
together likely that one of these cit- sti
les and possibly both of them will be mE
favored next year. be
Among the cities from which the tal
party chairmen have received Invita- tic
tions which they will submit to the Pu
December meetings are Cleveland, In- tr
dianapolis, Minneapolis, Kansas City co
and Denver. At least two Pacific p
coast cities, Los Angeles and Port- be
land, have indicated that they will in In
due time let it be known that they Ni
also will extend invitations. tie
Chosen City Must Pay the Bill. bE
The city that takes care of a na- to
tional political convention must oblti- bE
gate itself to pay the bills of the con
vention. This rule has been followed re
for a good while. This does not mean bE
that the city becomes responsible for ai
the hotel bills or other expenses of ei
the delegates, but it does mean that it le
must provide fhe hall free of cost and ti
take care of the legitimate expenses vi
of the national committee. The situa- pJ
tion is usually met by the city turn- se
Ing over to the national committee a ir
cash sum sufficent to cover the le- n
gitimate convention expenses. b
Next year's conventions will contain
the same number of delegates that sat ti
in the conventions in 1918. The num- xn
ber of delegates from each state sla
based on the number of senators and a
representatives the state has in con- a
pgeel, and although a new censuq will 0
be taken in January next year, the re- t
apportionment for congressional pur- a
poses will not be made in time to at- c
feet the political conventions.
Reducing Army to Peace BasIs.
The army of the United States t
has been reduced to almost its
normal strength. It now numbers
about 840.000 men and 28,000 ole
ers. The high water mark of the war
was rbached November 11, last year,
the day that the armistice was signed,
when the payroll of the army contain
ed the names of 8,e70,888 men. A bill
signed by the president the other day
provides that there shall not be more i
than 18,000 commissioned ofcers from
October 8, 1919, until June 80, 1920.
This means that 10,000 officers must
be let out. The legislation which the
president has just approved also au
thorizes the secretary of war to re
tain such offiers as may be necessary
in grades above their present rank.
Diffclt as the process of building
up the army has been, the tearing
down and shaping into a peace time
organization is a more d6ffcult mat
ter. The dificulties of adjustment have
been increased by the uncertaintles as
to the tfture military pollcy of the
government, the inadequacy of pay la
the face of the high cost of living and
the failure of all classes to realize
that economles must be promptly met.
In peace there cannot be permitted
the latitude in the use of ofcers that
is necessary in war and the rank and
promotion of oefcers must be governed
by consideration of length of service,
experience and general value to the
military establtshment as well as a0
accomplishmlents darig the war.
Ten Thousand Must Go.
In antleipatol of the peassage of
the bill providing for 18,000 odlcers,
the war departuent allotted this apPm
ber of oiemer to various commands
and ailltary acitvti ofat the arirr at
home and abroad. The total npmbei

tug was fxed and the commandliag a.
c-r of these orgainsations were direc
ted to aselct, from the oeficrs under
their command. a suficent number of
temporary officers who, with their reg
ular officers, will complete their quota
of the 18,000. These selections are well
under way and it will be necessary
that the discharge from the service of
all temporary officers not so selected
for retention, be accomplished before
November 1, 1919.
This means the discharge within the
next five weeks of approximately 10.
000 emergency officers, most of whom
desire to remain in the service but for
whom there are no vacancies under
the law. In determining the manner
in which temporary officers are to be
retained, the department has been
guided by the consideration that the
immediate commanders know best the
relative merits of the officers under
their command and are best qualifiedl
to judge which officers will be of the
greatest value to the military estah
lishment for the particular work to
be accomplished by this establishment
between now and June 30, 1920. The
army has important work to do before
that date. and the retention of tem
porary officers must be based upon
their fitness to do this work rather
than as a reward for their services
during the war.
Ranks Must Be Readjusted.
The war department has fixed the
number of officers that there may be
in each grade of the 18,000 officers.
thereby terminating the opportunlty
for extensive promotion that has ex.
isted during the war. In getting thi
'18.000 officers into these grades, there
must be sacrifices of rank and pay
throughout the service; a necessary
consequence of readjusting the rank
of officers from that held in a military
force having 200,000 officers to those
they can properly hold in a force hav
Sing only 18,000 officers.
The temporary officers to be retained pa
will be largely applicants for perma- lT
nent appointment. These officers ace
along with all others have reached! th
e grades in the large army raised durins Lin
the war that they cannot expect tc ed
Ihold in the small peace-time force. A 'C
determination of the decrease in rank a0
tof these officers in order to properly travi
e fit them into the new commissioned tra
eforce will be made by the war depart- M
e ment and announced in orders. of
yMuch Treaty Legislation Needed. f
I Ratification of the treaty of peaceT
with Germany will not end the
i responsibility of congress in con- F
nection with the pact. There Will
t still remain the question as to how nu- re
1 merous provisions of the treaty are to 8
be administered. It is reasonably cer- th
Stain that congress, in enacting legisla-,
tion that will be necessary in order to
10 put into effect many provisions of the or
n. treaty so far as the United States is ti(
ty concerned, will see to it that broad
Ic powers are retained by the legislative i
. body, or at least by the senate. Assum- TI
In 'lg that the treaty, with the League of Li
SNations covenant included, will be rati- m
fled with certain reservations, it will m
be necessary for the United States of
.a to have representatives on a large num- t
It. ber of international tribunals.
, The treaty is silent as to how these tr
ad representatives of the government shall of
an be appointed. Should congress fall to g
'or act, the president would appoint in m
of every instance. But congress, so the t
it leaders in the two houses say, has no
ad thought of failing to act. It will pro
ies vide, through legislation, if present
is- plans are cakrried out, that all repre
n- sentatives of the United States on the g
a international tribunals shall be nomi- Ut
le- nated by the president and conflrmed o
by the senate.
tin When the treaty goes into effect a
mat there will be opened up an entirely g
im- new feld of international activty. It a
is is a field that will call for trained 7
Lad men of the best type. Congress will d
on- fx the salaries of these men and will,
1'll of course, have to appropriate money
'-to meet the expenses of the United
ur- States in participating in the numer
* one new international activities. t
Will Require Many Experts. t
a There will have to be a mixed arbi- I
Ites tral tribunal established between each j
its of the allied and associated powers on i
iers the one hand and Germany on the B
offi- other within three months after the i
war ratification of the treaty. Each of these
ear, tribunals is to consist of three mem
3ed, bers. The nlted States will, in case
sin- the treaty is ratified, appoint one mem
bill ber of the tribunal which is to repre
7y sent it, Germany will appoint one mem
lore ber, and the two thus appointed will
rom choose the third. There will also have I
* to be created a permanent commission I
m which will advise the conncll of the

an- and air qnestlons. It will also be nec

ly two miles a minute, 5,400 miles e

through snow, fog, clouds, and rain,
Lieutenant Melvin W. Maynard land
ed on Roosevelt Field Mineola, 1:50 cr(
o'clock Saturday afternoon, the first la
aviator to finish in the army's great th
transcontinental air race and reliabil

Muaster Electrician William E. Kline th
of Harrisburg, Pa., whom he described fub
as "deserving the greatest credit," and ab
Trixie, a Belgian police dog. dar
Figures compiled by the American da
Flying Club show that Lieutenant fa
Maynard's actual flying time on theo
return trip was 24 hours, 45 minutes, in
8 seconds; only a few minutes less
than his unofficial flying time on his
westbound trip. dP
Under the rules of the contest, how- di
ever, time spent betweek control sta
tions must be counted in the actual pj
flying time as computed by the army vt
in deciding the winner of the race.
This means that the eighteen hours 1
Lieutenant Maynard spent changing
motors in a cornfield in Wahoo, Neb.,
where he was forced down because
of a broken crank shaft, will be added
to his official flying time. The unof-i
ficikil total elapsed time on the return
trip was 92 hours 32 minutes 48 sec- al
onds. Including three days spent in 8
San Franoisco, the round trip was t

Relief in Movement of State son
Wheat Crop Asked by Hobby the
Austin, Tex.--Governor Hobby has GeO
wired Walker D. Hines, director gen- G
eral of railroads, asking for relief in do
the movement of the wheat crop, say- Bu
ing millions of bushels will spoil un
less it is given transportation. The me
governor's wire follows: for
"The condition in the wheat belt in gr4
Texas at this time in relation to the Fil
movement of wheat and other grain is to
indeed serious. Pursuant to the gov- the
ernment's request for increased acre- ba
age of wheat, the people of Texas po
have produced an exceptionally large au
crop. Machinery for harvesting the of
crop is short, thrashing has been de- the
layed, and a, large quantity of the ral
thrashed grain is unprotected on the ad
ground, due to the fact that the pro- ag
ducers were not prepared to handle ,su
the crop of this magnitude and to the to
further fact that they have been un- cri
able to procure lumber to build gran.
aries. The usual wet fall is seriously on
damaging the present crop, and unless vo
facilities for expeditious movement be
are furnished, millions of bushels of
the crop will be wasted, thus caus
ing a serious financial loss to the pro- a
ducers, who have been for three years be
past victims of an unprecedented gr
drought. I am informed that an em- ot
- bargo has been in effect during the m
past sixty days and that practically Pt
none of this crop is moving. I am w
very anxious indeed to get some re- th
lief for those who are c6ncerned, and gi
I consider it a matter not only of im- liI
portance to Texas, but to the whole I re
world, in view of the shortage of' si
Sfeedstuff and as a start toward the bi
reduction of the high cost of living. in
Will you not give this matter your g,
attention and advise me if there is
s any relief in sight, and you will have
the thanks of the people of Texas and
a myself." tl

SRecommendations of the growers,
y embodied in fourteen points, were

t because of the objection of certain
Sgroups to several of the points. It was
agreed fully, however, that the rules -
rs be suspended and that points in the the
d growers' recommendations not previ- pr
a. ously killed at the general committee p
1e meeting be voted on. As a result all
ly points in growers' recommendations le
m were adopted except those condemning
e the sale of cotton on call, favoring B
id gin compression, condemning gamb
1- ling in cotton and other necessities;
le recommending that tare should con
of sist only of the actual weight of the vc
e bagging and ties of the bale, and urg
g,"ing closer co-operation between the a
mgrower and spinner. t
is Foreign spinners objected to the B
ofth ri
e condemning of the sale of cotton on
ad call, declaring it was necessary that c
they should be allowed to purchase
their cotton in that way. The ginners'a
group objected to the gin compression
recommendation. Because "gambling" ~
E~ was not defined the bankers' group
voted against that feature of the
recommendation, explaining that the
futures market was a necessary part
at of the cotton industry and that dealing

of Massachusetts of 100 years ago,
when the "Striped Pig" gained its
fame. At that time the law read that
liquor could not be secure, save in
15-gallon lots. That gave the "pig"
its chance.
An enterprising resident attended
the military muster on the Readville
fair grounds, and established a side
show. A banner before the tent
flaunted the likeness of a red and black
pig, which, a sign said, could be seen
for four pence. Many men went in
to see the strange animal, and returned
many times. As the law did not pro
hibit the exhibitor from giving away
liquor he gave each patron a generous
glass of the forbidden drink from a
large stock he had laid in. The "Striped
Pig" became famous over night. Songs
were written about the animal, a bev
erage was named after it, and a bur
Slesque play in New York adopted the
absurd title.
