U.S. STANDING ARMY
WILL BE 600,000
War College Plans to Increase
') State Militia to 500,000
Washington, Nov. 28 Militant
members of Congress, who have pro
claimed their intention to advocate the
strengthening of the armed forces of
the United States, apparently have
been proceeding on the theory that the
Gevernment has overlooked the mat
ter.) It that is the case, it is more than
probable that these gentlemen, who
are wasting midnight electrfc lights
and the ribbons on their typewriters
preparing resolutions providing for an
increase in the , array and navy, are
certain to be disillusionized.
There is good reason to justify the
statement that the! officials of the Gov
ernment intrusted with the duty of
protecting the country from foreign
invasion, and to assume the offensive
if necessary, have under consideration
plana . that will obviate the necessity
for legislative undertakings ii this
line, other than to facilitate the con-
summation of those of the Govern
ment. The general staff and war college
have been at work for more than two
months working out the details of a
system that probably will be recom
mended by the Secretary of War in
his annual report, and presumably
with the sanction of the President.
There has not, of course, been any
public announcement made regarding
the reorganization of the land forces
of the country. On the contrary, the
utmost reticence is manfested.
From what can be learned, however,
it is probable .that any steps looking
to the better protection of the country
do not contemplate any increase in the
regular army, but will be more direct
ly devoted to the enlargement of the
militia forces of the states. The near
est basis for this reorganization reach
ed by the experts contemplates the
creation of a volunteer reservist force
to bring the 48 State Militia forces, to
500,000 men, who can be ready for, ac
tive military duty within three weeks.
- The regular army at . present con
sists of 4572 officers and 88,444 en
listed men. The authorized full strength
of the regular' land forces cm a war
basis is 4728 officers and 96,977.
JThe latest returns to the War De
partment from the Adjutants-General
of 48 states show the strength of the
state militia forces to be 128,043 men.
The reports, however, indicate that
there are only 93,277 men actually
available for duty in the state militia
forces. The increase, therefore, con
templated by the plans under consid
eration for the development of the
state militia forces, is about five times
that of the number available today.
The conditions of the land defensive
army of the national forces in the
United States is something approxim
ating that of British Government at
the beginning of the European war. It
is frankly admitted by officers who
have nominal supervision over the
citizen soldiers of the United States
that, with the exception of New York,
Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Pennsylva
nia and Michigan, the militia forces
of the country are at a lower standard
of efficiency than the organization of
the territorials of England, whose du
ties are about the same as those of the
state militia organizations in this
It is the purpose of the Government
to invite the co-operation of the stater
in an effort to encourage a greater de
gree of interest, in. the development
and efficiency of this branch of nation
It is the belief of the officials of the
Government that a patriotic appeal to
the young men of the coluntry to vol
unteer for training in the army will
enlist the co-operation of men in all
walks of life.
' One of the details of the new plan
contemplates the establishment of t
permanent training camp in each state
during a period of from four to si.
months every year. These are to be
run on a uniform schedule of training
to conform to' the methods of the reg
POPULAR CAPE COUPLE WED
Fred J. Mack and Miss Ella May
Nichols Married by Mayor.
Fred J. Macke and Miss Ella May
Nichols, a popular young couple of
this city, were quietly married by
Mayor F. A. Kage at his office yester
day afternoon at 4:30 o'clock.
The marriage is the culmination of
a courtship that originated five years
ago while the parties were still at
tending the public school in this city.
Mr. Macke -is employed as a clerk
for the wholesale firm of Meyer & Al
bert, and is the . son of Mrs. John
Macke of this city.
The bride has lived in the Cape all
of her life, and is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Charles Nichols, whose
home is at 115 South Pacific street
RIVER CONGRESS TO
MEET IN CAPITOL
Conference on Waterways Will
be Most Important Ever
Held in U. S.
Washington, Nov. 28 If piesent
promises are fulfilled, the eleventh an
nual convention of the National Kivers
and Harbors Congress, which will
meet in this city on December 9, 0
and 11, will be the largest that ever
has been held by that organization.
Arrangements are being made for four
or five special trains, which are ex
pected to bring from 100 to 200 dele
gates each, who not only will attend
the convention, but will call upon tne
committees of Congress, and their
Senators and Representatives, to urge
the improvement of waterways in
which they are interested. '
And, in view of the attacks which
were made on the last rivers and har
bors bill, which resulted in th-3 ap
propriation of a lump sum of $20,-
000,000 instead of an amount exceed
ing $53,000,000, the coming conven
tion promises to be the liveliest, as
well as the largest, in the history of
While the program i3 not by any
means completed, it is already evident
that, in the interest and importance
of the addresses made, the eleventh
convention will, to say the least, not
suffer in comparison with those that
have gone before. President Wilson
has been invited to make tlw opening
address, and it is hoped that he may
be able to be present. Definite ac
ceptance has been received from the
Chinese Minister, Mr. Kai Fu Shah,
who will tell of the waterways of his
country at once the oldest of na
tions and the youngest of republics
which have been in constant use for
thousands of years. Acceptances have
also been received from Senators
Weeks, of Massachusetts; Simmons, of
North Carolina, and William Alden
Smith, of Michigan; from Speaker
Champ Clark, and from former Gov.
Charles S. Deneen, of Illinois. For
mer Mayor Magee, of Pittsburgh, will
speak on the need of Lake Erie and
Ohio River Ship Canal. John H. Barn
hard, of New Orleans, the builder of
a new type of self-propelled barges,
will talk of "Our Unused Waterways,"
Irving C Norwood, a former Wash
ington newspaper correspondent, now
secretary ff the Greater Davenport
j (Iowa) committee, will give an illus
trated lecture on "Water Terminals."
One feature, which promises to be
of the greatest interest, will be a
series of addresses on some of. the
projects which were most violently at
tacked during the consideration of the
Rivers and Harbor Bill. Senator
Saulsbury, of Delaware, will speak on
"The Chesapeake and Delaware
Cana;" Senator Fletcher, of Florida,
on "The Trinity River," and Repre
sentative Baker, of California, on
"The Sacramento and Feather Ris
Following each of these addresses
opportunity will be given for free dis
cucsion. Another feature of interest
will be an address by Representative
J. Hampton Moore, president of the
Atlantic Deeper Waterways Associa
tion, on "The Pork Barrel."
SHOE FACTORY TO OPEN
Will Be Using Full Force Again By
End of Week.
It is now an assured fact that work.
will be resumed at the shoe factory
on Monday morning when the cutters
will start and a few days later the
force will be increased in all the de
partments and it is said that by the
end of the week that the factory will
again be running to its full capacity.
