Tho Nntlonal Guard Is fully nllvo to past failures, but, mark you, thi National (luard of the United Htates has unceasingly naked t'ontrress for the past twelve years to do those things which In an enlarged ttense It Is now asking and which the committees. of Congress now nte constrained to do under the force of public opinion. It l acknowledged, f am Informed, that the military committees of Congress frankly admit that tho only sensible plan of fered to Congress for the creation of a cltlren army has come from the National Ouard. Let It be borne In mind that the very sensible plan now offered to Congress Is only the perfection of plans which the officers of the Ouard hae been urging for the past decade. A good many wxnlled experta are trying to rntifuse the situation, It ! therefore not surprising that when within the past ten days thern was pre sented to the committee of Congress CITY FINANCE BILLS READY THIS WEEK Dozo.n Measures lo lie lnirr,.
