While other committee meetings
will doubtless this afternoon follow
the meeting of the Senate, the most
important committee gathering will be
that it' the Senate Finance Committee
which meets at ^ o clock this evening
to hear the report of its subcommit
tee and take definite action in r. gard
to raising revenue. While there are
some Senators who think that this
session's revenue measures should be
limited to the general property tax
.and t-he increased automobile license
tax. there are others who favor raising
revenue from every possible source,
and particularly from increased income
taxes and increased merchants' license
lilTherc is a good deal of opposition
to in.-reusing the minimum tax on
merchants from J", to J15. Opponents
of this increase admit that it is a re
flection on the State that about half
of the merchants of Virginia only pay
this minimum tax. which is based on
sworn statements that their purchases
for the year have not exceeded 11.000.
At the same time they say that an
increased minimum tax will prevent
manv from going into the mercantile
business and thus limit competition
Thev also point out that in any event
the increased tax will be passed on
to the consumer and thus add to the
cost of living.
Judcewhlp rniicim This Week.
Indications are that a joint Demo
cratic. caucus of the General Assem
bly will be called early this week for
the nomination of a judge of the
Supreme Court of Appeals, to succeed
Judge Stafford C, Whittle. whose
resignation will take effect December
31. this year.
Delegate Dillard said on Friday be
fore leaving for his home that friends
of Judge 10. W. Saunders were con
sidering the advisability of circulating
a petition for the. caucus, so as to dis
pose of the matter at this session.
"We are ready for the caucus." Mr.
Dillard said, "but it is not certain that
we will take the initiative in having
it called. The situation was to have
been discussed here this afternoon, but
was not. We may circulate the petition
early next week. That, however, has
not been decided."
Fpon the constitutionality of hold
ing the election at this session there
are manv divergent opinions. Many
lawyers hold that it would be illecral,
since a vacancy in the court will not
actuallv exist until Judge Whittle has
relinquished his real on December XI.
Others say it would be plainly within
the law. ifor the reason thai the Gen
eral Assembly lu'.s been formally noti
fied that there would be a vacancy be
fore the Legislature will convene again.
No formal opinion has been handed
down bv the Attorney-General.
Besides Judge Saunders, the candi
dates are Judge Kobert G. Southall. of
Amelia; Judge Jesse F. West, of Wa
verly. and Judge Frank Christian, of
i I.e.leune at fluantleo.

of a new treaty; send a new delegation

unless the Senate recede from its posl

it is known that the alternative of an
exchange of diplomat ? ii 'tes with the
principal powers lias been suggested
Ill-- IT. .-. lent as the most feasible
by liepubliein Senator*. who have told

That the President might permit the
negotiations to statu! in a deadlock
by declining to like up with other
governments any changes suggested
by the Senate involves perhaps the
most int. i ' sting possibilities ot all.
Administration leader.- repeatedly
have de.'inred that the President alone
was charged with the negotiation of
treaties, ami that the whole history <>f
treaty-making showed ;.?? could halt
any such negotiations at any step he
desired prior to the exchange of ratifi
cations. The Senate, these leaders
i have asserted, wotil i be absolutely
powerless to interfere, its authority
under the Constitution being limited
to giving advice and consent to the
acts of the executive.
In that connection many precedents
have been cited, in? Aiding one as late
as President Tiffs administration,
when Mr. Taft. dissatisfied with the
Senate's tniendnient of a treaty he
had presented for ratification, washed
his band.- of the negotiations and let
tlie treaty die.
Should President Wilson adopt that
course anil then appeal to the count . >.
Kepublican Senators say. the Senate
would adopt a resolution declaring tne
war at an end and proceed to enact
' such legislation as seemed necessary
| to restore a complete peace mmn
1 Whether such a resolution would re
i quire the President s signature is a
disputed question, however, and M .
1 Wilson is known to object strongly to
any such method of ending the war.

head of the special War Department
board on courts-martial and their pro
cedure. Secretary I taker today took
the ollicial stand tlt.it the present sys
tem should not be changed except in
minor details. Inforentially, the sec
retary upheld (.Sonera! Kernan's view
that "courts-martial have always been
agencies for creating and maintaining
tiie discipline of armies." rather than
j agencies for tin* "nice exempliiicaiioit
of technical rules of law."
The War Department board's report
! reflected the opinions of 22.*i ollicers
who were circularized. More than
| half of these gave hearty approval to
j the present system, forty-three con
j ilemnod it as basically wrong and the
remainder, a total of sixty-seven,
pointed out specific weaknesses which
they thought should be remedied.
I emporary ollicers were about oiiually
? divided for and against any changes.
The most serious defect in the exist
ing system, the report asserts, arises
'from "the lack of competent trial
j judge-advocates ami counsel," and as
a remedy it is recommended that de
j fense counsel lie appointed for each
general ami special court-martial, and
that special inducements he offered
young ollicers to study law in order
that they may he fitted for these and
other special duties.
Ii is noticeable," the report said,
"that officers who served with tight
i ing units are, as a class, favorable to
| tlie present articles; on the other
j hand, oflleers whose duties kept them
remote from the scenes of battle view
the system with a more critical eve.
and manifestly compare it with crimi
nal practice in the civil community
to the advantage of the latter."
rinp that the "sovereign
remedy proposed by the most pro
nounced critics Is 10 transfer adminis
tration to those who are lawvers first
and soldiers by courtesy only. General
Kernan expressed the oninion that this
would make ii Impossible for the com
mand to obtain among his troops tlie
necessary discipline to military suc
cess. which is the "first purpose of
; an army."

(By Associated Press 1
WASHINGTON, August "J 4.? With
drawal of ti?e American punitive expe
dition from Mexico was ordered by
Major-General Dickman. commander
of the Southern Department, it was
indicated tonight by Secretary Baker.
There had been a belief in ollicia.1 cii
i eles at ihe War Department through
I out all of the uay tnat the withdrawal
1 was imminent, but Secretary LS.iker
[ said ton i gilt he was witiiout oihcial
j liitormatson as to the return across
; me border. ,
The orders received by General Dick
I man from the departim ut, it is known,
wore so explicit Uiai instructions from
Washington were not needed to order
the wundrawal. The border com
mander was to organize a force cap
! able of being moved swiftly to tno
.scene of inc detention of Lieutenants
i *a vis and Peterson, the t wo army
aviators held tor ransom by bandits, to
capture or destroy the band and to
?Vicati up" thoroughly the section in
which tills and oilier isolated groups
of bandits have been operating. it
was presumed by olticiais tnat (gen
eral Dickman either considereu tnese
instructions to have been carried out
ur that the expedition was unable to
pick up turUier "hot trails."
The decision to withdraw the expe
dition, it was said, oihciaiiy was
wholly a military one, and was en
tirely outside the diplomatic questions
raised through iiling of h protest at
tne Stale Department by Mexican Am
bassador Bonlllaa.
.llnrchlnK In Italu.storni.
A telegram received tonight from
Maria. Mexas, said that 3uo .American
cavalry troops tonight were making
tneir way back to the Kio Uranuo
tnrough a driving rainstorm, alter ail
unsuccessful campaign begun last
Tuesday to overtake the. banuus who

I Davis. They reached Kuidosa at &:.?o
lull lit.
Contact with Carranza sjldiers also
on the trail of tlie bandits unu a heavy ?
rain which wiped out the tresn trans
resulted in decision to abandon tne
chase. The Mexican Federals were en
countered last uignt by a scout patrol,
and, after a conference, army oihcers
decided lo abandon the pursuit uniil
tins morning, Meanwhile, tile lainnad
wipea out the trails of the bandits,
who were only a tevv hours ancau o?
: tlie Americans.
Return In Single Column.
The punitive expedition is return
ins in single column with Uut-o
i cavalry troops leading, pacK tr...us,
i machine-gun troops and otiier units
following. Two troops are acUiti; as
rear guard.
The six days below the border re
sulted hi tne killing of four baiuiils
by troops niid the death of one uy
macniiie-gun bullets troni an airplane.
?Nine bandits, said to be a part ui
lUnterias band, were captured at
Co.vanie in a uance hall by carranza.
Reports that Jesus Kenteria. leader
oi tlie bandits, had been kilted were
brought lo tile border toda>, but count
' not bo con tinned.
A message received from Major
Yancey latu today said: "Will reach
river tonight. Have supper for auo
Vancey. is commander of Ruidosa
station and will resume his command
| there.
Colonel Langhorne had hoped that
: the troops today would pick up the
' trail of the bandit band led by Jesus
i Kenteria and that it would be pos
sible to continue the pursuit until
i tomorrow at least.
Conference In lleld.
After a conference last night be
tween ollicers of the expeditionary
force. Major Yancey informed Colonel
l.anghorne that he thought the expe
dition had -a chance to lind the trails
j today.
Colonel Langhorne thereupon ordered
I him to proceed with the pursuit to
j day. If he failed to pick up the trail,
t Colon. 1 l.anghorne ordered, Vancey
! was to come out at the expiration of
a twenty-tour-hour limit, ending to
night. Failing to find the trails in
today's storm. Major Yancey started
the march out. '
'I'll o More Klyern l.ont.
Another American army airplane
bearing two lieutenants was missing
from Koyce Field tonight. Piloted by
lieutenant George K. Rice, with Lieu
tenant I" 1.. Bouquet as observer, the
plane left at daylight for Mexico to
reconnoiter for the punitive expedition.
It is feared the aviators became
confused or were lost in a driving rain
storm. Lieutenant-Colonel K. L. Roycc,
commander of Koyce Field, said he be
lieved the airmen probably landed on
tlio American side after losing their
way in the rain.
Ceneral Antonio Pruneda, Carranza
commander, who marched to Cuichillo
I'arado when American troops crossed
into Mexico, returned to Ojlnaga last
night and resumed his garrison there.
Connie Bengoechea. Mexican consul,
announced today General Pruneda
stated nine, instead of eight, bandits
were captured at Coyame by troop*
from chihuahua City under General
