GREATER ARMY BILL

ACTION IS TAKEN
OVER MANN'S PROTEST
Wahiiinotov, April 25. After nn
other protracted parllntncHtary Mrujnste
the Democrat of the House to-rlsy stie
reedM In senrtlnir the army appropriation
bill to conference without permitting a
vote on the Kennte provision nuthorUIng
a, regular nrtny of SSO.OOO men.
Thli achievement whs ucoompllMied by
a bit of uraicKy, the recognition of
Meyer Tendon, the lone Socialist mem
ber from New York, km the minority, and
leaving tlio Republican, nlui claimed
recognition In that capacity, pruutlcutly
without voice In the proix-edlnRH.
Meanwhile, the Senate Instructed Its
conferees to stand cut for the .Senate,
provision for an army of 2.o,ono.
Friends of preparedness were named by
the Senate an mcmbcrH of tlio conference
committee on the army bill. All of the
live conferees named are "bit;" army
men. They arc Senator Chamberlain,
chairman of the Military Affairs Com
mittee, anil SeiiHlors HecUhuni and
Broussard, Democrats,, and Senators
Warren and du I'ont, ltepUhllcatis.
Senator Hitchcock, who stood high on
toe committee In seniority of rank, was
left off the conference committee because-
Of his hostility to the preparedness plan.
It Is believed the Sen, He conferees will
Tote to a man for the Increase of the
regular army to 150, 000.
The special rule dovlsed to enable the
Democrats to carry out their plans and
the parliamentary entanglement which
followed provided occasion for a debate
on preparedness more spectacular than
any that occurred .when the army bill
nam originally under consideration.
Democrats and a number of Republi
cans from the middle West asserted that
the regular army was i. sham ; that the
standing unity provided by the Scnale
bill was a delusion and that the country
muni depend on volunteers for Its tit
fenco If the necessity should arise.
The Herman situation, the possibility
of serious developments In Mexico and
apparent hostility In middle Western
States towur1 anything like militarism
eemed to havu resulted In a cliutixe of
wntlment In the House with respect to a
large standing at my wince the vote taken
On the House bill several neeka ago.
Representative Kelliy of Mlchlgun, In
whose district Henry Kord lenities and
who has been tin advocate always of pre
patedness. too Issue with his colleagues
on the Republican side, asertlng that
the money ili.u inlRht be expended upon
an army of .'jO,(on men should be de
voted to the upbuilding of the navy as
ttie first line of defence.
Representative Mann, the minority
leader, made an Impassioned appeal for
the larger army. When hu declared he
was not In favor of breaking off diplo
matic relations with t'.trniany hu was
reeled with an outburst of applause.
Mann Come tn Front.
"All the older members of the Houte."
ha said, "know that for years I have
stood here opposing u laige army or a
large navy. I do not believe that under
normal conditions cither one is essential
to our peace or our preservation. I
wlh I had the power of expression to
mako you see what Is clear In my mind.
"We are sitting on top of an earth
Uake In Die world. Wu arc the onlv
great, rich, powerful country that Is not
engaged In war and tlio only on with
out a method of defence. We may be
come at any time Involved In war
through our notions of our rights or
because of the cupidity of other nations.
I would rather spend a little money now
than to spend oceans of American blood
"I think we ought to prepare for the
worst now. 1 want to kiep out of the
war: I am opposed even to breaking off
diplomatic relations with any of the
countries nt war In Kurope. I think wo
ought to remain nt peace, to stand even
Insult and Injury. Hut there Is a limit
beyond 'which no one goes, and while In
my opinion wu hae not yet reached
that limit and I ImpeVe will bo able to
restrain ourselves so that wo will never
reach the limit, I am In favor now of
preparing men who may be ready and
trained to fight If necessary before wo
pour out the blood of volunteers, un
prepared and untrained."
Charge at I.obbrlns.
Representatives Lenroot and Long
worth said the House should havo an
opportunity to strike out of the Senate
bill the provision for the erection of a
Government nitrate plant, which they
said had been urged by ono of the most
persistent lobbies that hail ever an
.TeB1.c.!la,Bts "roused Chairman Hay
of the Military Affairs Committee, who
declared that lie would not accept the
Senate nllrato plant provision until he
had received further Instructions from
the House. ,
Replying to Mr. Mnnn. he said as to the
Benate provision for an army of 250,000
"I do not want to put upon the coun

we are doing something to mako prepara

"Will these men eomo forth when tho
President calls for them?" he at-kert.
Han it ever been known In the Ills

J. Walsh. William O. Wlllcox. Frank
Uiscelles, Kdlth Wynne Matthlsou and

Dr. Butler called Shnkespeare one of
the four great racial voices of tho world.
"Homer, Dante, Shakespeare, Goethe,"
he said, "are four great epochs which
stand out like peaks In the history of
letters the Greek, the Uitiu, the Saxon.-
the Teuton. To Shakespeare fell the
honor to run the whole range of human
feeling, human aspiration, human love as
no other great artist has ever hoed .to
do and to do It In our own language
and In our own manner.

Tho leaders were ex-Villa supporters
who Incited the natives against the Onr

Americans In the city were all killed and
the Carranza Government overthrown
the American Invaders would be fright

have been executed. This Is the second
plot, a numbr of arrests having been

CAN'T FIND MALONEY
IN SUIT ABOUT ALTAR
Lawyer Tells of Inability to
Servo Papers on Oil Man
at Office Here.
The difficulty of serving a court order
on Martin Malnney, wealthy oil man and
a Patal Marquis, was related to Supreme
Court Justice Delehanty yesterday when
counsel for the Mcltrlde Studios, 4 I Park
How, asked the court to set a day on
which Maloney may bo examined before
trial In a suit against him for J15.U00.
The suit In based on an alleged agree
ment under which the plaintiff was en
gaged by Mr. Maloney to build an altar
for tho Church of Our Uuly of the
Nativity at Scranton, Pa. The order
was countermanded after the plaintiff
had done part of the work.
Attorney Boskey. representing the
plaintiff, said that after Supreme Court
Justlco Whltaker had refused to vacate
an order for the defendant's examination
It became Impossible to serve him here.
although he has an office at CO Church
street, where he is president of the
Maloney Oil and Manufacturing Com
pany. "Mr. Maloney has'glvcn more altars to
1 Ionian Catholic churches than any other
man," said tho attorney. "Ho can do
millions of dollars worth of business
from his office here and yet we can never
find him there to wrvo him with the
Samuel Xewm.ri, attorney for Mr.
Maloney, told tho court that he Is "a
very busy man" and that his own attor
ney hasn't seen him In this city but once
In a year and In order to confer with
him must go to the Maloney home at
Spring Unko or to Philadelphia. Tho
lawyer said he didn't see why Mr.
Maloney should bo examined anyhow,
because the case Is to como up for trial
"It Is true that he has paid for the
building of many altars, hut he never
contracted fur this particular altar," said
the lawer. "Our theory of the case Is
that It was undertaken solely for tho pur
pose of harassing tho defendant."
Tho court resersl decision.
"Are you sure? Where's a time table?"
"Why, don't you know that a fabl New Jersey Central tram
leaves Every Hour on the Hour for Philadelphia? That's '
the beauty of fhat road Your watch is your time table!"

ing a quarrel between Carranza and
Obregon over the. failure of tho Pirst
Chief to Insist upon the Immediate with
drawal of American troops from Mexico,
!ei. Obregon was opposed to the de faf to
Government permitting the punitive ex
pedition to cross thn border and has
never forgiven Carranza for acquiescing
to President Wilson's request to send
troops after Villa and his bandits.
While Obregon's forces were resting
preparatory for another attack, word
was received by Gen. Obregon that Car
ranza was not In tho castle and bad
fled the city. Obregon Immediately with
drew his forces and hostilities ceased.

made between Carranza and Obregon
and tho Minister of War agreed to pro
