"PORK BARREL" IDEA 1 MIGHT ASSIST ARMY A Major-Honora. Niiffgftt.a a Military Pout in Every , Stat. WOULD AID THE MILITIA Say Tt Better tA le Political Methods Than to Fight ' Them. . Washinoton. spt. fa Convinced tlmt the "pork barrel" system will rule legis lation for the army as long as there la a Congress upon which It In dependent, dome officers In Washington have reached the conclusion that It would be better for the jirmy to arc-opt the Inevitable and cease tiring to fight II off Consequently they are proposing thnt a movement be In augurated for the establishment of a regi mental army post In every Btate no that very Congressional delegation would be vitally Interested In the army. The officers see In this suggestion pos sibility of much, practical good to ths army Itself, and also to the mllltla of the Several States. "I have devoted mora than forty yesrs to this subject," said one veteran holding the rank of MaJor-Genoral, "and while ws have made some progress It has been so low that ws must turn our attention to new methods and try a different plan If substantial results are to be obtained. "In the first place we know that the mllltla must be considered In army mat ters. The mllltla is a strong political fac tor In the States and Congressional dls tilet. It Is here to stay. "Now what I suggest Is that the army Improvement be considered as other sub jects sre considered In Congress. I"t evsrv State become an Interested party and have pride In Its military posl has In other Btate advantages. We. know thst It Is Impossible to abandon many mllM.rv nosta : so let us hsve more mili tary posts : let there he a regimental post in each Btate. If the State la entitled to a military post and holds It because of the Influence of Its delegation In Congress, men wny should not every other Btate have the same advantage, especially as It will ul timately be for the general good of the army and the national defence? Kvery Congressional district has several public building ; almost every Btate bcnelMs from the river and harbor bill ; every state will benefit from the appropriations tobe made by 'the Federal Government for road Improvements. A Poet la Each. Mate. "Btate posts should be lorsted with s view of making It easy to assemble for the summer camps three regiments from contlnguous States for brigade drills. We should even hsve the groups of posts so arranged as to make It possible to bring together several brigades and form the division as the tactical unit of an 'army. "The troops as a regiment In the State post, would have training they cannot get when scattered, as Is now the case, in bsttaiions and companies In small posts widely separated. We could have the mil itia troops assembled with the regulars at the different manoeuvre ramps when ever it was practicable, while they could always be Sent once a year to the regi mental post, and in this way the National Guard could be trained for the service which may be reulred of it. "The same Influence which secured the construction of many of our army posts although now looked upon as useless will prevent concentration and the con struction of quarters necessary for brl gsdes and divisions. I would ! glsd to see the progressive Ideas of the Secretary of War prevail, but all efforta in the aame direction have been unsuccessful In the past." ALIMONY CLUB HEARS SKOLNIK. sheriff, Wardm and Members' Wives It tend l.udlow Concert. If the famous Alimony 'lul Of the Ludlow street Jail does not lose a fetw of its members by reconciliation with their wives In the next few days It will not be the fault of Sheriff Julius Harburger or of Oregor Skolnik, by contract concert master of the Chicago Grand Opera Com pany's orchestra but temporal lly one of Warden Johnson's happy family in the Jail. By the Sheriff's order and' permis sion Skolnik served up sweet music, the "food of love," yesterday afternoon to the alimony dodgers In the form of a violin recital. Sheriff Harburger brought Mrs.iHar hurger. Warden Johnson Invited his wife, and several members enjoyed the sight of their own wives sitting on the other side of the room while Skolnik executed Dvorak's "Humoresque" with the vigor and spirit he Is wont to displav on the concert platform. Altogether about thlrtv persons heard the violinist until his long repertoire had been exhausted.

HITCHCOCK HITS CURRENCY BILL Continued from First jfnpe. the President Is to appoint. 1 do not be lieve, In 'entrusting arbitrary sower to a board of seven men whether they are chosen by the bankers or, by the Presi dent. ' "I think strong limitation should be Placed upon their power. As the bill now stands, they would have absolute power to I fix the rate of Interest for the whole coun try, to raise or lower It, and thus to expand or contract ths credit and currency of the country at will and by that means to move prices up or down. A.tocratle Power. "Ily expanding the volume of currency and credit they could raise prices anil by conl -acting both they could lower prices. This la entirely too autocratic a power to i.e entrusted to any body of men and I ahull make every effort to have that power greatly restricted. As provided In the tilt they would practically operate a centr.il bant with twelve branches. An other contention I am making In the com mittee la for tha protection of the In dividual bank that Is to become a mem ber of this new system. As provided In the bill tha Individual bank Is practically helplesii. When It appeals to the reserve bank o.' Its district for. a discount of Its commercial paper It may meet with an absolute refusal and It has no recourse and no appeal. "Another bank doing business perhaps across the street in th same town may have Its whole portfolio of paper dis counted without any limit under the torms of the bill. "This affords the greatest possible op portunity for gross favoritism ana I shall urge such changes In the bill as will com pel the directors of th reserve bank to extend to all member banks of the asms class, character and slae equal accommo dation. I shall also favor a limit upon the amount of paper that a reserve bank can discount for any particular bank. The Tot Per Oats. "Personally I am unalterably opposed to retiring I per cent, bonds now out standing and putting out 3 per cent bonds Instead, and I am opposed to retiring the bond secured bond currency which we know by experience is absolutely safe and substituting for It asset currency or cur rency secured only by the commercial paper held by banks. "I think a great struggle will occur over that provision In the Administra tion bill which provide for th retire ment of ITOO.1100,000 of bonds secured by currency now in existence and replacing it by aaset currency. "I am willing to accept a limited amount of asset currency for elastic purposes, but I see no reason why our permanent currency secured by bonds should be dis carded. "I am very confident slso that the It per cent, reserve provided for In the Ad ministration bill Is not large enough. The experience of central banks In Kurope Is that this reserve should be 50 per cent. I sm also satisfied thst a much larger part of this reserve should be In the Treasury than the small amount which the bill pro vides for. , f t hief Objections. "These criticisms represent my chief objections to the bill and 1 know they are entertained by a number of other mem bers on our committee. We have not gone far enough yet to develop whether a majority of the committee will be willing to spprove the bill even with these amend ments. "There sre some of us upon the com mittee who feel thst the whole tendency of the bill Is In the direction of the cen tralisation of lower in business snd we believe It will b- possible to give the Country an elastic currency to be used in time of need without making such a radical change which proposes to bind up In one great organisation all the banks of the country and thus creste a money trust by act of Congress. "In sny event, the matter has gone far enough to demonstrate thst s banking and currency bill cannot be agreed upon and formulated without taking a great deal of time and without making a careful investigation. "If our committee reports the bill dur ing the present Congress. It will contain some very Important amendments and our Investigations have gone far enough to demonstrate that the total number of amendments will amount to several hun dred." WOULD SAVE MILLIONS. Ranks Abroad Aids Ki porter.. Washi.not.in. Sept. 28. The savins- of millions of dollars each year Is predicted ss a result of the provision in the Administration currency bill permitting national banks of the United States to establish branchea abroad. Porelgn trade experts, who next to bankers are most Interested In this section of the bill, declare thst nol only will the bankers whe engage In the financing of American foreign trade through branch establishments benefit greatly, but thst the exporters will gain a great advantage over the prssent conditions of doing business abroad. It Is declared that because of. the lack or American banking facilities abroad, due to the present banking laws In this coun try, American exporters have been paying an annual tribute of millions of dollars to European banks having branches In the countries with which the United States trades most. This Is especially true of conditions In South and Central America, where Ameri can trade with those countries Is financed by banks owned and operated by Its com petitors. It has been shown nrepeatedly that banks handling Invoices of American ex ports to South America copy the informa tion as to prices, Ac, contained therein and paaa on such Information to exporters of their own nationality. This of course puts the American st a tremendous disadvantage, as It places In the hands of his competitor all confldeatial knowledge about his business, on the basis of which the foreigner can go ahead and ellf the Ati.ei l. H n truHe It Is believed that the branch banks I which ths currency bill contemplate will : prove of Inestimable value as sources of Information alone. In. this respect It Is I expected that the small American ex- porter and the manufacturer with whom roreign iraae is now a sideline will benefit to a very large extent. 3 DROWNED IN M0T0RB0AT CABIN Their Boat Baa Oowa aad leak While They Arl Asleep.

'HOBOES' WANT HOTEL NEARER THE BOWERY 'How's Men Decide Against Brooklyn as Place for Win ter Headquarters. WANT EIGHT HOI R PAY Speaker Says Two Hours In Long Enough, but that t'topia Doubtful. Ihe hoboes In the association orgsn I red by J. Esds How, It was announced yesterday at their Weekly meeting In Manhattan Lyceum, M Kast Fourth street, have decided against the Break wster Hotel in Atlantic avenue, Brooklyn, near the Thirty-ninth street ferry, which was suggested as a winter headquarters for them, as It Is too far from the Bowery. Alexander I-aw, secretary of their or ganisation, which Is known as the Brotherhood Welfare Association, said that a commute bad nearly completed negotiations for engaging two floors In a Bowery hotel a short distance from the Manhattan Lyceum as a hobo winter headquarter. There will be no regular housewsrming for tbe hoboes. Their winter headquar ters will not be used for meetings, but as a place where hoboes who have no place to go can alt Indoors. Several spellbinders from ths Socialist parly addressed the meeting yesterday. Michael Rosenberg, one of them, advised the hoboes, who now are called "migra tory workers," to orgsnlse with the unions for the purpose of demanding a general eight hour work day. This, he ssld. would be six hours too many for a man to work In a day. but they would try to get the eight hour day first. Alexander Golden, another Socialist who spoke, was appointed to visit the headquarters of tbe bakers' local unions and ask them to contribute Jointly a bag of rolls weekly toward the Sunday free luarh. It was said by I .aw. who la also sec retary of the Tenants Union, that he had received a letter from C. Crawford, sec retary of the war college division. In replv to a letter sent by the union to President Wilson, after Its Indorsement by the hoboes, containing resolutions aaklna that Governors Island be made a public recre ation ground. The reply says that the resolutions will be considered In case it is derided to make a change In the present status of this military reservation. JEWS WANT NEW SYNAGOGUES.

DIRTY POLLING PLACES AN AID TO REPEATERS' Honest Ballot AssoriHtion Com plains of Filthy Shops . on East Side. Filthy polling plsces. of such a nature aa to keep voters away from them on election day. are objects of an attack by the Honest Ballot Association. George W. Kessler. secretary of the association, has written a complaint to the Board of Klo-tlnns. asserting thst dingy, smelly polling places give splendid opportunities for repeaters The association's letter contain scores of flagrant examples. Two examples are 1742 Second avenue, the polling place of the Twenty-first election district of th.; Twenty-second Assembly district, and 3in Ksst Seventy-seventh street, polling place for the Seventh election district of the Twentieth Assembly district. The first Is a fish store, and the second Is a room in which chemical extracts are made. Mr. Kessler says : "In the middle of the room at 1743 Second avenue are permanent counters four feet high, used to crack oysters and dump fish scale and Intestines Into. The odors In the room are rank and the place Is dingy and dark. The floor space Is only 126 square feet." In the other place he said that the width of the room runs from Mx to seven feet and "the odor Is very disagree able. If not positively sickening." "These are only samples of what our investigators have found." said Talcott Williams, president of the Association, yesterday. "The connection between poor polling place and political corruption is threefold. In a dingy hole repeaters can get by watchers without notice: a dingy hole often keeps respectable voters away by Its mere fllthlness. leaving matters in the hands of the unscrupulous, and finally s recognised bit of graft Is for the local political boss to hire the shop, however Inadequate, of a faithful hench man aa a voting place at $10 s day. This work Is only preliminary to our real task of detecting repeaters. It stops one of the aids to their activities, which Is slso s nuisance to everybody.''
