Md., March 8.?Proprie tors of thc various saloons in An napoli*. In particular and people of the city generally are still very much excerti.-?ed over the order of Secre tary of the Navy Daniels to place Annapolis "dry" along, with several other naval training stations, espe cially on the point an to when the edict will become effective. Not only are the saloonkeeper-? on the alert, but a decided interest from a cenerai standpoint Is manifest. Proprietors of the emporium* feel that they are justly entitled to a -stay of time in which to dispose of the stock of goods they have on hand and otherwise ndju.it their business af fairs, and in other words, they assert they should be given at least until May 1, which Is the date upon which their annual license expires. Tbta request has been made to Sec retary Daniels by a committee of the Liquor Dealers' Association of the city and it is also being pushed by Sydney K. Mudd, who represents this district in Congress.

With the American Army in France, March 8.?They say over here that Gen. Pershing uses "iron discipline." Let'* see if I can draw a pic ture of Pershing's "iron disci pline" in A ? C terms so the non military mind will clearly grasp it. Well all admit, the War De partment wished on Gen. Persh ing a whale of a job when they asked him to take an untrained, undisciplined, inexperienced mob of husky young Americans and make them into an army capable of licking the hosts of the Kaiser. This characterization, of course, exclude? our small regular army, which was trained to a certain kind of warfare and that part of our National Guard that had had previous training. ??rest Orsanliatloa. Before the first American troops de barked on French soil. Usn. Pershlng had planned far ooean transportation. With troop? arrivine by th? tens of thousands and rushing off to ths war ione. Gen. Pershlng had first of all. to perfect a great organisation to handle thera. There must be men under him ca pable of directing tbe railroad trans portation; others must ses that sup plies of all kinds are forthcoming; others that guns and ammunition are on the spots where and when they will be most needed; others must look after the medical and hospital ends; others, matters pertaining to motor and wagon transportation: while still others must be ready, ln advance of the coming of the troops, to teach them trench warfare methods. Now, these multitudinous detail? are and will be handled for the mont part by men who have, had only slight If any. experience in a big war prior to laat April. With supreme command In his hand? and matters of general policy constantly before him. Gen. Pershing obviously csn't attend to army de tails. He must delegate others to do these things?from feeding to drilling? hit? army. Hi? job is to keep tin? big Ameri can military machine over here running smoothly and effectively. The least ?lip-up on the part of any one of hundred? of Gen. Pereh tng's subordinates is apt to throw the whole machine out of (rear. And In times of actual war that means ? loss of life. In an army, like in any other or ganisation, there are always to be found some men who are lasy, others who are incompetent, other? who procrastinate and others who P?mhlB*-**s atea taut do their IM ?er diesai?ed ?rasa the araay. Mat haste. t heal. These wtt waa't are In the service for soclsl reasons Now. these are the type? that feel the "Iron discipline" of Gen. Pershlng. He frsnkly declare? he ha? no use for any man who Isn't over here strictly on business. He doesn't and won't have the other kind around them. When he find? them he la a terror to them. Many of them, under hi? method?, get busy snd make themselves useful; while those who can't be msde to do their duty aet the "gate." which mean?, they are either kicked out of the army or are sent back to America. 10?

Manning, millionaire retir led broke., for 11,000,000 heart balm last year, has been aecetly married in Ireland to one of her childhood I playmates, it was learned today from a letter received here by one of her friend?. Miss O'Brien finally settled with I Manning for 1100.000 after having been awarded a S22S.000 verdict and having it reduced by Supreme Court Justice Cropsey to $125,000. Threat of an appeal caused her to accept the lesser amount. "I changed my name to Daly on November 22," she wrote to her friend. "Wasn't It quick work? j You msy remember my telling you about the chap who wanted to merry me three years ago; well, he haa had his wish. We are very happy." The bridegroom is John Daly, a farmer who work? 136 acre? at Skib beree. "We have a nice little house. It's a wee bit small, and we are OFFICIAL DENIAL OF HUN CRUELTIES - Gen. March Says Information Re futes Barbarism on Prisoners. No information of atrocities prac ticed by the Germans against Amer ican prisoner? hss reached the War Department. This waa officially stated by Maj. Gen. Peyton C March, chief ot staff, last night. Gen. March said the army author ities are fully acquainted with the treatment accorded American sol dlers captured by the enemy. Thla information cornea through the Red Gross snd other sources. The attention of the War Depart ment waa called to report? of Amer ican soldiers having had their eyes gouged out and their bodies other wise horribly mutilated. If such re porta are true, the War Department believes, they involve only iaolated instances of brutality. 'The Bahal I nltj??? ta the ?abler? of an ?address to be given by Rev. Howard C.

"My husband's father and -mother are dead, ao we*re not bothered with mother-ie laws, etc." Manning was 83 years old when he became engaged to Mi?? O'Brien. They were to have been married by Cardinal Farley In St. Patrick'!*, Cathedral December 19. 1916. But the cardinal received a telephone message from Manning the day be fore the time set saying he had broken the engagement as his rel atives considered there was too great a disparity between his ad vanced years and the 28 summers acknowledged by his fiancee. The trial of Miss O'Brien's suit attracted wide attention. She tes tified to ardent wooing by her aged suitor. He sought to impress the Jury with a belief that the "Irish Beauty" had made the advances. After the settlement. Miss O'Brien paid her lawyer and carried what remained to Ireland, where she if reported to have chosen her child hood chum from among many suitors.
