England today, perhaps, presents a more divided front to the enemy than any of her friends. This may be due to two causes. It may be due to too much freedom in home government or to too much freedom from threats from outside. Great Britain is up against the hardest problem of its life today. If Russia had rolled into Berlin that time a million or two of our Anglo-Saxon brothers would have marched in shortly afterwards in all the pride ami panoply of war by the back door anti no one could ever be a bit the wiser as to whether those million or two warriors knew one end of a rifle from another. Britain is grand in victory, now we are watching her when she has a really hard task ami when giving money and letting others do the big lighting are not quite enough. And how is she acting under the press? It was evidently impossible from the beginning for her two great parties to exile partisanship for the country’s good. One titled upstart who owns a powerful string of newspapers has more to say today in the government of Great Britain than, possibly, Premier Asquith himself. The ultra con servatives are just seeking t ie downfall of Asquith because Asquith is the arch-leader of Liberalism. To reach their end they are even pretending to call for Lloyd George as the successor of Asquith and to take the place George must be a traitor to his greatest friend. There isn’t a Conservative in England who does not hate George like the poetically proverbial pizened pup. But George could be made useful to them arid that is the main desire in the hearts of those schemers who never seem to mind a little matter like dividing the country in the face of the most powerful enemy Britain ever met. CHICAGO TO HAVE BIGGEST POLICE FORCE CHICAGO. Dec. 29.—A citizen police force 20.0(H) strong, in addition to the regular force, is being formed here today. When complete it will give Chicago the largest police force in the world. According to the plans, suggested by seven millionaires, mem bers of the Industrial Club of Chicago, every block in the city will have a citizen policeman serving without pay.. He will work with the police and health authorities in the district. It is hoped that he will prod into ac tion the careless cops on the regular force. The first duty of the citizen policeman will be to gain the iriend ship of the patrolman on the beat. His chief work will be observation. He will not have the power to make an arrest, but is expected to report unsanitary conditions and law viola tions. Residents in his block will be expected to cooperate with him. The citizen police force will make Chicago’s police department the most efficient on the world,” said lx>uis Damon, secretary of the movement, known as Chicago Civic Cooperators. "Already the regular police are com mencing to show interest in the pro gram. They have gotten 6,000 copies of the city ordinances and are show ing more discretion in their official acts.” Each citizen policeman is provided with a card of authority which bears the signature of the mayor, chief of police and the head of the health de partment.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 24.—'There are a million men in the United States who could respond to the colors in some form of military usefulness, if the call came. These are national guardsmen and ex-national guardsmen still of mili tary age; ex-regular army men now in civil life; the majority of the Spanish War Veterans and men who have received training under authori zed army officers in universities. There also are young men drilled under military men in high and private schools, and ex-U. S. marines who have had land training. Officers of the U. S. Army admit this would be a highly convenient army nucleus in time of emergency, but the government doesn’t know where any of these men are except the national guardsmen. Roughly estimated there are 500,- j 000 national guardsmen and ox-na- j tional guardsmen; over 175,000 army and navy ‘alumni;’ between 180,000 and 200,000 Spanish War Veterans and 75,000 college cadets. War department figures show there are now 8,705 officers and 120,098 en- i listed men in the national guard. In the Spanish war, 228,285 volunteer officers and enlisted men served. In the college last year, there were 82,-, 000 who had drill, and in the bust 10 years 89,000 men have been graduat- j ed who had been trained two years, j Figures for ten years behind that j easily make up the estimated total of j 75,000, army officers say. As to the regular army alumni, an average of 13,000 fails to re-enlist each year. The total for 1014 was 14,340. Even with the loss through deaths since discharge; incapacita tions, removal to other countries and, old age, the figure for 20 years should be 175,000 to 200,000 men. Recent plans of enlistment in the j war department call for three years with the colors and four in reserve.; Before that, once a man’s term of enlistment was up, the government gave no more attention to him.
