^ A.>ll IXdToX, September "7. A
charge of political trcarhcry on the
part uf the Republicans in tho Senate,
both to >h(- Democratic suffrage leader.*
!ti that borly ati?l to the infinbors of the
National Woman's party, brought on
an acrimonious debate in the Senate to
.1.1 y.
As a result of hitter fcojinp, a situa
tion lias develop,Ml which not only
places the suffrage amendment in jeop
?' ? hut may preclude the possibilltv
of h \ ote at this session of Congress.
When adjournment was forced late
to-day ih<* suffrage Senators were de
termined to go on with their program
*o get a vote on the amendment late t o -
morrow Senator Martin, of Virginia
the Democratic floor leader, pledged
?"?J ord that there would be no vote
before noon on Monday, and in this he
was backed up by Senator Lodge of
Massachusetts, the Republican leader
who declared there would be no vote
at any time without .1 full attendance
of senators.
Moth Senators Lodge and Martin are
opposed to the amendment, bu? the
statement of Senator Lodge carries
more significance because every effort
has been exhausted in the attempt to
aave a full attendance for the vote
to-morrow, and it is regarded as highlv
improbable that another full attendance
of Senators can be arranged before the
.November elections.
Senator lxidge said there would he no
juggling with "pairs" in the vote on
the amendment, and thereby accepted
on the part of the Republican Senators
responsibility for delay in n vote on

The only way that a vote can be
prevented to-morrow is through a tilj
buster 011 the part of the antisuffrage
senators, both Republican and Demo

elections is very remote.
Senator I'lttman, of Nevada, a mem
ber ot the woman Mjffruge committee
and a stanch advocate of the suffrace
amendment, made the open chare*** of
political treachery against the Repub
licans in a speech shortly after the
senate met and started "the turmoil
that lasted throughout the day. it was
known that the proponent s of the

Speakers wilt be on the program In

"Fight or get in line." declared \V. T.
I ?abney, executive secretary of the
Liberty loan committee yesterday in
discussing the opening of the campaign.
"Hi'chmond's quota has been definitely
fixed at J1 S.S30.K00, twice that of the
third loan, and every man and woman
in Richmond is duty bound to lend
every cent possible to be used for the
thousands of American boys who are
fighting our battles across the seas.
Mothers have given their sons, wives
their husbands, children their fathers
to the cause and those at home can
certainly nut their money in the hands
of the safest institution in the world,

in preparation for the opening of the
campaign a meeting of the Boy Scouts
of Richmond was held in the auditorium
of the John Marshall High School last
night. when plans for the work of that
organization were outlined to the hovs.
In previous campaigns the Boy Scouts
have aided materially in many ways in
raising the required quotas "and "their
experience is expected to be of con
siderable importance in the drive dur
ing the next three weeks.

As heretofore the drawing will take
place in the Semite office building in
the presence of distinguished represen
tatives of the country's military estab
lishment. The allied nations will be
represented by their diplomats and
military attaches.
A marked departure, however, from
former procedure?of Immediate inter- '
est to the registrants themselves?will
be a change In the method of marking
'public the actual "order numbers."
Only the first 100 numbers will be an
nounced from Washington on the date
of the drawings. All the remaining
numbers?and they will range from
one to 17.000?will be sent d'rectlv to
the 154 district boards which have been
instructed to make them available to
the newspapers within their jurisdic
tion immediately upon receipt.
This, of course, means some slight
delay in the information reaching the
registrants, but General I'rowder ex- i
plained to-day that the arrangement
is necessitated by the mass of figures
and the time required in the drawing
and has met with the approval of the
news associations of the country, who
were consulted before its adoption.
By direction of the provost ?marshal
general. the newspapers are required
to withhold publication of the lists
until their release by the district
boards, with the exception of the first
10ft numbers that are selected from the
The work of picking out the num- '
hers, one at a time, will consume ap
proximately twenty-six hours. It will
begin at noon and it will require con- ,
Nnuotis and uninterrupted drawing to
complete the task by l' o'clock Ttiesdav
afternoon. Genera! i'rowder explained
that he was enabled to fix the due
by the fact tint each o:' the t.o'.T
local boards had finally assigned to'
the;-- respective registrant.- the indi
vidual serial numbers of each rccris- j
trant. Me had to wait for this infor
mal ion.
The numbering of the slips to go
into the capsule containers has been
done bv machine to prevent possible
duplication and omission. The con- '
tainers will be drawn from the bowl :
by blindfolded officers. The officer?*
aiul enlisted men in charge of the
drawing will work in three relays of
one hour on and two off in order to
finish the drawing in the quickest time 1
n.AssiKK s
The Inter creation <*>f (he classifica
tion system* Irs entirely altered the
situation anil t lie order of numbers
now only indicates a man's ortler in
his class and several considerations de
cide his class.
As for example the first number
out of the bowl might be 24S. Number
218 might be held b\ n man forty
three years old. married and havincr
children. The fact that Ms number j
is the first drawn stands for-nothing
at all. lie would automatically tro
in the fourth class for dependency.:
and unless the government reverses lis
policy of not invading tbe deferred
classifications, he never would be called
for service. If the policy ever should
be reversed all the men in two classes I
ahead of him would lirst have, to be I
exhausted. This, it v.-:ii he seen, ma- j
terlally reduces tin- importance of his
number being first out of the bowl. j
Similarly, inlmber -'?.-7^. for example. '
might be the very last capsule drawn'
and the holder might be a man nine- i
teen years old. unmarried and rout |
free, lie would be practically certain,
to be called to duty soon, despite the j
fact that his order was at the bottom I
of the list.
Furthermore. all the registrants j
whose numbers are about to be drawn ;
have wen subdivided inl? three classes;

i'HICAUO. September 27.? Having in
l)a.si loans "given the lie to the sneers
and taunts of our adversaries that we
are a mpre nation of money-makers,
interested only in profits," belief was
expressed by Secretary Daniels In an
address to-day before the American
Bankers' Association thai the Ameri
can people in the fourth Liberty loan
will demonstrate again that "Ameri
cans have left the valley of money-get
ting and have reached the heights of
In the light of the three previous
loans. Mr. Daniels told the bankers
the nation knows the financial inter
ests need no arousing'"to even greater
efforts in the future.'' and that again
the bankers will "manifest leadership
in buying bonds and organizing vic
tory loan committees.
"Wc are relying with absolute con
fidence. which comes from past experi
ence, upon you bankers to make it an
even greater success than those which
have preceded." Secretary Daniels said
in referring: to the opening of the ;
fourth loan campaign to-morrow, and
to the part in it to be taken by the
bankers. "Splendidly have you met
your calls for aid in the past, even
more splendidly will you meet our call
of the present." .
Speaking of American turninc aside
from money-making, the secretary
"Our passion was not money, even
when we gave most of our time to pot
ting it and hoarding it. our real pas-I
sion was achievement and accomplish- '
tnent. Dollars represented success and
progress and national development. I
And, underneath this ambition for
power, there was something deeper;
and.stronger in our national charac- j
tor. Some times it was so submerged )
that we even ourselves did not 1
appreciate tho truth that as a people1
it is not dollars, but sentiment that is
king and ruler in America. . . But:
one day there came the possible vision I
of American ideals under the heel of
'iernian materialism. It came like a,
flash, and just as suddenly thero came'
:i revelation alike t"> the bankers and
money kings as it came to the man of
farm and in factory."

P.rice Control of Everyday Necessi

lie Solved.
WASHINGTON. September "7.? Price
! control of the every-day necessities of
life by governmental limitation of
profits is urged as the only method in
sight of combatting the evcr-lncrcns
| lug cost of living In an official resolu
I tlon of the war labor policies board
J adopted to-day.
Felix Franfurter. chairman of the
I board, which Is uu official agency of
I the Department of Labor, in making
public t^e important action, explained
that he and his associates realized the
inherent difficulties presented by the
question, hut added with emphasis that,
like other great war problems, it must
be tackled and solved.
The resolution calls upon' the War
Industries Board, the food administra
tion. the Department of Agriculture
and the fuel administration to pro
ceed as rapidly as possible with the
formulation and enforcement of plans
for the increase in production of the
necessities of life-? or the stabilisation
of their prices, and of the equitable
limitation of profits.
It is regarded as the tlrst step in a
determined plan to limit to reasonable
prices the articles of personal and
household tise necessary to the decent
existence of the average American cit
izen. The public announcement of the
resolution and Chairman Frankfurter's
accompanying statement at this time is
designed to sound a general warning
that the government purposes to call a
halt to further advances iu the prices
the consumer has to pay for needed
art icles.
Mr. Frankfurter pointed out that
labor is especially concerned in t lie
maintenance of a fair level of prices.
The subject, he said, therefore, natur
ally forced Itself upon the. attention of
the war labor policies board, repre
senting, as it does', the agricultural in
dustries of the country.
No one is criticised for past failure
lo act. but it is made plain that the
time for heroic measures lias arrived.

With tho welding ot llie armies of
tho entente into a compart whole under
command of the interallied war coun
cil, guided by the master strategy of
Marshal Koch, apparently lias conic tho
lirst break in the united front of the
central powers.
Hulgnria. smallest of the Teutonic
allies, seems to have struck her colors.
I Premier Malinoff has asked for an ar
mistice to consider terms of peace.
Whether he is acting upon his own
responsibitil> as the representative of
,i revolutionary party or with the ap
proval of King Ferdinand and the gov
, eminent, remains in doubt. In either
case, however, there is little doubt that
i ISulgaria lias ceased to be a military
factor in the war. Her armies arc in
I full retreat and her soil has been In
Secession of the Balkan slate front
ihe thraldom of Herman will be almost
| as severe a blow to the Teutonic al
liance as was the collapse of Russia
I to the allies.
It' Bulgaria lays down her arms. Tur
key. her armies shattered by the co.ip
of General Allen'y in Palestine, will
l>e out off from. .*r allies. Her lines
of vommunlcatlon will be severed ex
cept a or o'ss lite Black Sea, through
Itoumania or over Hie mountain peaks
of Transcaucasia into Russia, where tho
grip of the i Sermnn-controlled Bol
shevik! is becoming steadily weaker.
Willi her supplies of German-made
munitions and raw materials hanging:
by such a slender thread, military ob
servers believe tho Ottoman empire will
have no course loft but to follow the
example of her Balkan neighbor.
i'.ut it makes little difference to the
entente whether the Turk abandons
Germany and Austria. if Bulgaria
units lit- can no longer be a menace to
their plans.
The back door of Austria will stand
ajar l>efi?re tho victorious British,
I-rencli, Serbian. Greek and Italian
armies plunging ahead of their ad
vance guards In Belgrade, across the
Danube from the plains of Hungary.
They alerady have pressed forward a
quarter of this distance since the great
Macedonian offensive began on Sep

communication available would present
the most serious ditliculty, and one
which could not be overcome before
Witn the defection of Bulgaria it
would be necessary for hard-pressed
Austria to throw an army across her
southern frontier, thus making another
serious inroad upon her waning man
power. The hulk of her forces is fac
ing the eager Italian army along the
I'iave and in the mountain region.
Kmperor William already has called
upon Kmperor Charles for help on the
western front, and Austro-Hungarian
divisions are lighting beside the Ger
mans against the steadily advancing
British. French and Americans. Italy
still has large reservoirs of men, and
any weakening of the Austrian front
to send fortes to the other frontier of
tho empire probably would be the
signal for a general attack to re
t-over not only tho invaded Italian ter
ritory, but the "lost provinces" as well.
With Bulgaria evidently fallen by
tho wayside, with Turkey staggering
and with Austria a welter of internal
discord and discontent, the shaken ar
mies of Kmperor William are grudg
ingly falling back upon their own fron
tier before the irresistible blows of
Marshal Foch's British. French and
American troops. The French and
Americans plunged forward again be
tween Ithoims and Verdun, while the
British attacked on a wide front in
t lie I'ambrai sector. Between them
they already have taken more than

In the face of steadily strengthening

Get man counterattacks with heavy
losses to the enemy. The prisoners
captured by the Americans alone now
number 8.000, and the captured booty
includes more than luO guns.
The oilicial report of Field Marshal
H.ilg showed that the Americans had
entered the fray in the St. Quentin sec

posts of the Ilindenburg line at I.cca
The French troops east of Uhclftis
were equally as successful as the Amer

They have increased the number of
prisoners taken by them in the present
drive to more than 10.000.
