ning to believe that there is a reason
back of the holding up of this resolu
tion. They point ot that Fall's friends
on the committee are holding up the
resolution until such a-time as the sen
ator wants It reported. They explain
this by saying that if after a count of
noses, Fall is sure he can be reelected,
the resolution will be reported out and
passed, but If the count falls to show
37 or 38 votes, the resolution will never
pass, and senator Fall will make his
bid for the six-year term on the elec

r.nA thine- l certain, senator Fall's

,,in it ---. Tint inclndfd In the
army appropriation bill which passed
the house yesterday..
The house military aliairs commn-
tre had not completed consideration of
the army appropriation bill when rep
resentative Smith introduced his bill
recently. -Jr. Smith made repeated ef
fects to get the war department to send
in detailed estimates to accompany the
bill, but this was not done until after
the military affairs committee had
completed the measure and reported it
to the house. The result of this was
that the appropriation ot $450,000 for
enlargement of Fort Bliss was not in
cluded in the bill. After the bill was
...ported to the house, the war depart
ment sent in the estimates. It was too
late to get them in the bill, and the
enly chance now Is for representative
Smith to get the senate to add the ap
propriation to the bill when the meas
ure gets to the upper house. This prob
ably will be done, but it is not likely
that the house will accept the amend
ment In conference.
That the war department Is more
particularly concerned at this time
about barracks in Panama than in in
creasing Fort Bliss will be seen from
the following letter from secretary oL
war Stlmson to. chairman Hay, of the
n.illtary affairs committee:
I return nerewitn nm autnonzing ,

Bliss, Texas, into a regimental post '

"The accommodations now at Forx
Bliss are for a battalion of infantry.
but othsr troops are static:;td there,
for the time at least and a compara
tively small sum of money is now be
ing exnended in the erection of tem
porary shelter for a part of these ad-J
ditional troops, in tne plans oi tne
war department, in which considerable
progress has been made, ! although a
final conclusion with reference to the
wbole country has not been reached, it
is contemplated that a regiment of cav
alry shall be stationed at Fort Bliss, as
'being a rxilrbad center and probable
future center of population for the re-Klon-along
the Mexican border between.
"San-Antonio and the Pacific coast. Tte
r-an. therefore, calls for the enlarge
ment of the post to the extent contem
plated in the bill, and, since the neces
sary garrison is now witnout -per-
nianent shelter, there is no project of
construction in the United States prop'
er which is now more pressing than
"Bliss .Can Walt."
"The principal present- concern of
this department, however, as regards
the construction of additional accom
modations for troops, is for the housing
of the necessary garrisons for our for
c'gn possessions, including the Pana
ma canal zone, which are now without
the number of troopj which prudent
'forethought requires. The department
has therefore not included an estimate
for the enlargement of Fort Bliss
among those which It has sent to con
gress of the appropriations for the
ccmlng fiscal year, but it has been the
intention to submit such an estimate
after the appropriations shall have
been secured, as contemplated, for the
ft reign possessions."
It will be seen from this letter that
Stlmson is more concerned with tne
Panama canal zone than he is with Im
provements at Fort Bl'ss.

of a year and a day for assault to mur

United States circuit court of appeals
at St. Paul by. Aland's attorneys, but,
before' it was decided in the circuit court
of appeals, governor Mills, in one of his
last official acts, commuted the sentence
to three months in the county jail and
a fine 'of $100. - '
- Although this action was taken just
