Draft Law Chances "Five millions or more cannot be raised now under the present law with out Invading the classes having de pendents and greatly Increasing the difficulty and expense of maintaining the army. A plan proposed some months ago to meet this problem by enlarging the draft law so as to reduce and In crease the age limits was rejected as premature. A bill since Introduced In Congress for this purpose met tire ap proval of the Military Committee of the Senate. A favorable report was only prevented by the promise of the Secre tary of War to offer a more definite pro gramme for the consideration of Con gress before Its adjournment. Thus our leaders hold back. They will yield some time. The Administration will be slowly pushed again Into a course In which It should have led. Valuable time wilt be lost" Continuing on the necessity for nn adequate representation and a majority on the Republican side of Congress Mr. Taft said: "What is needed then to help this Administration most Is a coordinate branch of the Government with power and responsibility In fighting the war which will perform two functions. The first Is that of constructive criticism of administrative action or Inaction. The second function Is by law to enlarge On these points there was absolute agreement, that part of the platform bc lnff drawn by President Nicholas Murray Butler. There was a stiff flint, however.

"We can't win the war and save de- tnocrary unless we dictate peace on uer mm soil." Mr. Taft declared. The. former President came to the platform on the arms of Henry W. Taft and Judge Sanford Smith of Chatham and was Introduced by Chairman Fas sett as "Our old time friend, our great public teacher, our Inspiring Republican leader."

He dwelt upon Instances where tire dmlntftratlon had been "pushed Into sitlon" when It should have been lead tnir. and he deplored the delay In for mulating and carrying Into etTwt n definite policy In regard to Russia.

Our present task, as patriots and Republicans, is to help tit present Administration organize the ro'entlal force of this country Into a '.lockout blow to William of Hohensol-1- it and lil compliant German people." Mr Tail here sketched the advan jjres mi fnr gained and held by the "ntral Powers, and then listed our own 'nqueH's the control of the seas, our "eaillly advancing ship construction, the Mding of the one time peril of the 1 -boat and "tne Immense moral and !ii steal help which our allies received when American entered the war. Mr Taft continued In part: What can we fairly say of the "-paratlons for the war by the Ad- " "Istrntion? We must admit that to nce a peace loving democracy like .' Into a nation which shall make an ff' th i) modern war on u huge scale Is e;iy task. Much has been done by U dmlnlstratlon and well done, 'e need not dwell upon the unfor xte delays In the manufacture of machine guns, aruncry, snips Administration has sought to secure what Is called a non-partisan return of loyal members of Congress. That non partlsanshlp seems to apply only In States where the Republican majorities would be overwhelming and where the withdrawal bf Democratic opposition Is a concession of no substance. It does not work where there Is a chance for a Democratic candidate In either the Senate or the House. In. Wisconsin. tn which the Republican candidate for Senator was engaged In a life and death struggle with pro-German oppo sition, the President wrote a letter at tacking hlni and seeking the election of a warm persenal supporter and Dem ocrat whom he had urged to run. In Michigan, a- Republican State, where there Is a division between the Repub licans, the President hss Invited Mr. Ford, a former Republican, who rarely voted, nnd nn extreme pacifist before the war, to become the Democratic can didate, with a view to securing another thick and thin supporter in the Senate. Politics was not adjourned In the acts. Fucli a policy of so-called non-partisanship If carried to success will result tn a Democratic Congress completely sub ject to the discipline of the Administra tion, furnishing no stimulus to definite policy and no impulse to prompt ac tion." After the applause had subsided Chair man Fassett remarked: "If ex-Presl-dent Taft Is a ghost It's a rase of 'spirt Its of the Just made perfect before God.' " Antl-Whltmau Forces Lose. Whitman and regret your name being the whole committee occupied the entire used by the Brown-Wadsworth-Barnes morning. group." There has been much speculation over the attitude of George W. Aldrldge of Rochester, as It Is understood the Colo nel was anxious to get his support. It may he that to prevent further embar rassmt nt along this line he took occa sion to get up after the adoption of the j platform In the convention and say, "I want to say that the friends of Gov. Whitman are pleased at the mention of r.is name In the platform as the great war Governor. This started a demonstration for the Governor, which seemed to be what was Intended. Some of Mr. Aldrldge's clos est friends say that while he is pledged to the Governor and Intends to keep faith he would not be at all sorry to see the Colonel In the field, and has made the prediction that he could split the Republican vote In Monroe country In hair.

From a Staff Corretponatnt of Tns Scs. Saratoga, July 19.

Already the Dlatform. containing a recommendation to the Senators to vote for the amendment, had been passea, nut thr flerv nickels were not satisnea. Nine of them stealthily went Into the gallery and, sitting Jn the front row. threw the banner over tne eage ana neiu It there. Later Mrs. Wadsworth told a group of the pickets on the porch of the United States Hotel Just wnai nne thought of such unfair tactics. .And the pickets went back at her in a way that won for her the sympathy of a large crowd that heard the discussion. The banner was not notlcedygenerally Until Joseph Levenson of New York demanded of Chairman Fassett: "I want to ask by whose authority that sign was put up there?" Immediately there was an uproar. Cries of "Take It down," came from every part of the hall. Then cheers for Senator Wadsworth were started. N Offemllna- Stun ItemoTed. DISLOYAL PASTOR SENTENCED.

' CABLES Fight to Finish Urged. The nlatform adopted by the conven tlon called for a fight to a finish with the Imperial German Government, the thorough support of all measures in tended to help win the war, and sent a message of congratulation to the fighters of the country by land and sea. It urged emphatically that the Senators for this State rote for the Federal woman suf frage amendment, and commended In strong terms the administration of Gov ernor Whitman. As to prohibition, the platform was silent, and the same lack of definite statement was noticeable with reference to the proposal to eliminate the direct primaries. Although three Here some negative votes In the commit tee room, the platform came to the con vention as the unanimous report of the Committee on Resolutions. Universal military training was directly advocated aa was a national budget system and Fred Grelner of Buffalo Is another prompt attention to sucn sociai ana in- powerful up-Stte leader whom the antl- dustrlal problems as wouia quicwi ioi- w nit man men would like to add to tneiri .. round robin.

She was dressed In a white flannel skirt and white silk waist, which blended with her abundant white hair. The first woman to hold a position of honor at a political convention In this State was enthusias tically received and acquitted herself lth dlcnlty and honor. Once she raised her hand and asked If all were hearing. "Yes, Mary," called a woman delegate "eo on." There was the fjudest applause over the plan declaring for the passing of the Federal suffrage amendment. Twice when the name of Governor Whitman came up fn the eulosy of the work of the administration the Whitman delegates started a demonstration, but It was not so "strong, nor so vigorous as that which greeted the name of Col. Roosevelt later when a resolution thank ing tho speakers of the convention fVs passed. Not more than two-thirds of the delegates were In their seats, as It had been announced that there would be no minority platform report and there will be no fight on the floor of the conven tion. The report of Mli.i Hay's commit tee was adopted without dissenting voice. After tho only unpleasant Incident or the entire convention, caused by the swinging out from the galleries of an antl-Wadsworth banner by the ruffrage pickets, the convention adjourned at 1 :20 o'clock.

It Is understood the Colonel Is looking at the proposition from a broad national viewpoint, and In that connection Is consulting his friends outside the State. Among them Is John T.

The Whitman managers were confer ring all day an to Just what pressure they could bring on the Colonel to keep him out of the race. They have been trying to show a confident air, but they are plainly much worried. "All the Governor hag to do In to stand up and show he has some backbone, and 1 don't believe the Colonel could beat him In the primaries," was the way one neutral put It It l the general understanding that the nntl-Whltman people called off their open fight In the convention on the plat form attitude on prohibition and woman suffrage and the return to the nominat ing convention at the request of the Colonel. That he did not want any open friction ivaa taken to Indicate that he might be more than commonly Interested In the result of the election this fall. Attorney-General Lewis has not re ceived any reply to his message to the Colonel and evidently is not surprised that none has come yet It Is said he will feel satisfied to have the Colonel run. One story is that In that case he . would be a candidate for another term as Attorney-General, another Is that he Is considering going Into Charles K. Hughes's law firm. Although Rodman anamaker of New York Jias been mentioned as a possibility for tho Democratic nomina tion for Governor, a rumor was cir culated to-day that he might be asked to run on the Republican ticket as a compromise candidate. The general feeling Is that It has been a good thins for the party to get together and receive Inspiration from auch leaders as former Presidents noose- velt and Taft and former Senator Root and Chairman Hays or the National Committee. The Whitman people say Chairman Hays Is one of the men who are Interested in keeping the Colonel out of the race. Although Attorney-General Lewis Is much better to-day he will probably be confined to his bed for several days, as the sciatic nerve is anecten. lie was taken to a local hospital this afternoon. Bv general agreement of the Commit- tee on Resolutions of the Republican un official convention there was no minority rtiKirt when the platformvwRs presented by tho i;nairman, juss Jinry uarrei; Hav. to-day. The friends of Attorney General Lewis and other antl-Whltiunni. Ites were persuaded In the Interest of harmony to abandon their intention or making on open fight. It Is said that this was due in no small measure to the counsel of C,l, ttoosevclt. It was felt that the word or a fight over the platform In open convention would give a chance for the spreading of a report that there was a difference over the national and patriotic features. The war plank of the platform pledged the party to a war to a finish with Ger many. It charged the party In the State: "To labor unceasingly to bring the war of defense against the Imperial German government and Its allies to a hpeedy nnd victorious conclusion : to avoid the temptations and the dangers of nn Inconclusive peace hy diplomatic ar rangement which would only expose the world to all the perils and costs of mili tarism for "generations to come: and to solve In the largest possible way those great problems, both International and national, that the war has brought home to the public opinion or every tree na tion." To the army and navy the platform sent this message "We follow with pride and full appre ciation the splendid performances of the officers and men of the army and navy or the United States. We end them a message of good cheer and encourage ment, with the assurance that while they are fighting the armed enemy on land and sea the Republican party will be found alert to combat and to stamp out sedition, pro-Germanism and every form 'of unpatriotic expression and en deavor at home." Indorsing the Federal amendment for woman's suffrage, the platform said: "The woman's suffrage Federal amend ment has passed the House of Repre Fentatlves by a tremendous Republican vote. Practically every Republican county committee In the State has urged Its approval. The decisive plurality for suffrage In this great Republican State has so clearly shown the sentiment or the people that we emphatically call unon the United States Senators rrom New York to vote for the submission or this amendment to the States.' s Gov. Whitman's State administration got an unqualified Indorsement in the section which said, In part : "The Republican State administratis has marshalled and mobilized the energy, with resources and the militant patriotism of the men nnd women of all parties, and has worked hand In hand, day by day, with the Government In the nation. When quiet had bee partly restored Chairman Fassett asked the sergeant-at-arms to take down the "offending slrn." Among those who rusncd to tne gal lery were Senator Henry sage anil James Gavan of Albany. They pulled the banner back Into the gallery, but the women still hung on. Several times they tried gently to get It away, but It could not be done. Then there was a tug or war. but the women won at first. It was not until a woman, .Miss Annie E. Peck, well known aa a mountain climber, went to the men's assistance and used more force, that tne piCKeis lost the .banner. "Now that we have expressed our boiling emotion we all reel better," eald Chairman Fassett. trying to allay the anger or the delegates. "Arter the rain comes the rainbow." "That sign was not put there by the voting women or New York," deolared Mlsfl Hay. I-ater the pickets expressed tnemseives a much Incensed at what they declared was an Inaccurate statement After ad journment Miss Hay Issued a statement saying she had been In'ormed that one or two or the nine banner bearers were voters. "But the spirit of what I said remains true," she declared "that this group of women is not representative or the women voters of New York State. In ract, the opposition of the whole assem blage to the banner Justifies my attitude throughout tho whole State suffrage campaign In opposing the militant tac tic of the National Women's party nnd also In the campaign for the Federal amendment '' Three t"hrer for Wadsvrortb. After the Incident will closed some one In the convention proposed three rousing cheers for Senator Wadsworth, and the rafters shook. Abbey Scott Baker, one of the pickets, boiling with wrath, said! "Those whom the gods wish to de stroy they first make mad. The three cheers for Jim Wadsworth will sound the death knell of the Republican party in this State." DeveloDments in the unofficial Repub llcitn convention at Baratoga nave kept local members of the uemocratle ma-1 chine more or less on the anxious Beat. They are as much concerned as most Republicans over the possibility of Col. Roosevelt being a candidate for Gov ernor. . Democratic State Chairman Edwin S. Harris and State Senator Robert P. Wagner, who have been engaged In rariinc a tentative nlatform for sub mission to the Democratic convention that opens In Saratoga on Tuesday night on the heels of the Republicans' meet ing, were more perturbed yesterday 'over the Roosevelt possibility than anything Senator Wagner, who Is filling his old role as a platform drafter the actual form In the nlatform to be approved by fhnriaa v.

The uncertainty of the fate of Quentin was preying on the Colonel's mind, and t,ii v.a .Ttiihtted a natural pride in the heroic career of his aviator son he did not attempt to conceal from news paper men who have Known mm a Govern and President the great grief under which he was suffering.

The normal tax on personal and corporate Incomes next year will be probably not less than 10 per cent., according to Indications nt to-day'H session of the Ways and Means Committee, which Is framing the new tax Inw. The present normal tax on personal Incomes Is 4 per cent, and on Soys Cliunco Exists He Is a Trisoner Colonel Orate- ful for Sympathy. Col.

Roosevelt and his family are still hopeful that good news will ue re ceived. The Colonel motored to his home from New York city early yesterday after noon. Ho was accompanied by Mrs. Roosevelt and hlB two daughters. Mrs. Alice Longworth and Mrs. Richard Derby. They will remain at Sagamore Hill for several days. Hundreds of tele grams and cablegrams and letters wer delivered to him during the day. When the Colonel was asked about them he said : "We have received many hundreds or kind and rrlendly telegrams and letUra They will all be acknowledged In time, and I nek the forbearance or the senders because It will necessarily take some sentiment in favor of th'e Increase. Even to approach the enormous amount of money whlchvtnust be raised from taxes on Incomes, Including normal taxes, supertaxes and excess profits taxes, most of the committee have be come convinced that It will be necessary to adopt 10 per cent, as the normal rate. with the present exemptions remaining In force. The committee Is still without accu rate figures to show the total taxed In comes for 1917 and without a depend able forecast of the total In the present calendar year. Until these figures are suDnlled the actual draft of the new law cannot bo beaun. The most reliable estimates the com mlttee can obtain make It appear that I time. the heaviest taxes that can be placed on Incomes without actually decreasing revenue through killing Industries will fall far short or the amount desired from these sources. It Is estimated that Instead of raising $6,000,000,000 through Income ami excess profits taxes tho total will be fully a billion short. In regard to the loss of revenue through the possible enactment of the prohibition amendment, cutting off all revenue from that source, the committee definitely lias decided to Ignore the dry. bill altogether, In view of the strong doubt or being able to raise S8.000.000,- 000 from all sources. It Is certain that the doubled taxes on distilled, brewed and fermented, liquors, wines and beer will be included In the new hill. The majority of the committee does not feel that they should be called on to guess whether the dry bill Is going to pass and not be vetoed by the Treldent. Direct taxes on the liquor Industry, combined with the taxes on the Income from tho business under the proposed doubled direct tax rate, would yield about J1.000, 000,000. Cutting off this sum, even the dryest member of the committee admits, would make doubly hard the task or ralsng JS.000.O00.O00 through taxes, which pome or the tax law frarners believe to be impossible even with the liquor t.ixcs available Tho tuggestlon that all amusement ad missions taxes be doubled, was made In to-day s discussion, nnd Ilttlo opposition was "leard.

Mrs. Adele Blauvelt of Syracuse and Miss Effle Hill of Wash ington. Later Mrs. .lames W. Wadsworth, Jr., wife of the Senator, went up to the woman suffrage table on the porch of the L'nlted States Hotel. Four or fire of the pickets were there, Including Miss Alnge, Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Isabella Mott de Ancells of L'tlca. "I don't like your methods," said Mrs. Wadsworth. "It seeing unfair to single out an individual for an attack of this kind." "Yes. but we are attacking him on his nubile rerord." sakl Mrs. Baker.

Col. Roosevelt nt this point turned to his desk and picked up several letters. As he glanced through them he said : "This is Irom a rather or two boya fighting In France, one In the Marine Corps Rtid In the Chateau Thierry fight. He writes: 'We have no knowledge of what happened to our own In the laat battle." "Another writes' 'One ot my two sons In service, a naval aviator, was killed In February last." Another writes that he Is a rather or a service aviator who rell In action March 14. The son was 25 years old and fell In his second ac tion. "And here, another writes 'We lost our or.ly son, a Lieutenant In aviation ser- ice. o er there.'
