AIR SECRETARY
STILL OPPOSED
Creation of Separate Port
folio Fought by War
Department.
The War Department is holding
nrm in Its opposition to the creation
M a department of the atr. or anT
other measure that would take away
from the War Department any of Us
authoritr or control in asronaultci a?
relaten to the war
Many Senators, and ?specially mem
bers ot the Military Affairs Commit
tee!?, have advocated th? establish
ment uf a separate control over the
I restactMai and operation of fighting
machine? of the air. and In the last
report of the committee a str?me rec
ommendation was made for the crea
tion of a Department of the Air to
rank with the War and Na?y Depart
ments and with a Cabinet seat for
Its head.
Senator New. of Indiana, embodied
these recommendations In a bill to
create a Department of the Air and
the hill was referred to the War De
partment for an opinion or recom
mendation. Acting 3ecretary ef War
Benedict Cromell in a letter to Sen
ator I'hamberlain, opposes the meas
ure on the sround that the principle
la wrons. and that the War Depart
ment bats la effect accomplished the
desired ohje.ts by reorsanisatio?. He
wrote:
rrlwlssle Wraseaj.
"As far aai the War Department is
concerned, the urbanisation of a de
pasrtmeat of the aair, separate from
:he War Department and contem
plating military activities not un
it?? the control of the Secretary of
War, is beilesed te be essential!}
wrong in principle
"The ?'resident has nominated and
the Sen-ite confirmed ihe appoint
ment of John D. Ryan as Second
assistant Secretary of War. who is
lirector of the air service for the
War Department, by placing in his
aands and under tke supervision uf
:he Secretary of War and the Presl
ient the complete control of our air
service. It is believed the essential
pointa aimed at in the bill in ques
tion are covered in the best possible
manner.''
It is not probable that a serious
tftort will be made in the Senate t"
pass a bill creating a department of
the air at this time in face of de
:ermined opposition from the War
Department snd the administration.

balance the effect of tli- raising of
the rates.
As the situation was explained to
Lhe committee, either one of two
avenues of legislation was open to,
the Treasury Department to remove
the tendency to depress the bend
values which the new tax rates
would lia ve. These were: 1, to In
crease the Interest rate of the
liberty bonds, ???. 2. rai?O the ex
emption so that a large portion of
the income held by any one person,
tirm or corporation .might be free
fr?>ni the taxes. The Treasury '
adopted the second as the best
economie policy, inasmuch as too
many eomplleat ions woutd be in-|
volved in any plan tn Increase the'
Interest rate? on the bonds.

deposited, authorise arrangements j
with foreign counttles to stabilize
foreign exchange, empower the
President to prohibit the melting ,

Supply Shipbuilder? with Milk.
Twelve refrigerator milk cars were
rerentlv put in operation in Virginia
through the efforts of the Bureau or
Market? and Interested local dairy
men and in 11 ft distributers. Ilefore
these cars were sent to Virginia there
was a surplus of milk produced In the
valleys in the western part of the
State, but because of lack of adequate
transportation facilities (t could not
b? tt -msferred to Norfolk. Newport
News and other coast points where
the increasing population of shipbuild
ers and Industrial workers had inten-j
sifted the demand for milk. It was J
ascertained that the valley section
would have In excess of local1 demand!
approximately t,<BB gallons of milk for?
shipment dsUy, and the amount need-l
ed for government use alone at the
const points was 12,0? gallons daily,
an amount too large for the eastern]
and central sections of the .Slate toj

made at the rate of three cars a day,]
which is solving ?he problem of both

TUMULTY NOTE
SENT ML HAYS
Wilson's Secretary Sends
Reply to Charges Upon
Stand of Democrats.
Joeeph P. Tumulty, the Presiden?'*
. ceretary. and Will T. Hay*, chair
man ol the Republican National Com
mittee, exchanged ''notes" yesterday.
Mr. flays denied that he had said
ifie Democratic leaders in Washing
ton were ready to do anything in
'heir power to perpetuate their party
in office, and wound up hi* communi
cation with a (?lea that both major
parties forget partisanship for Ihe pe
riod of the war. Air. Tumulty replied
to this by citing a number ot in
stances wherein Republican leaders
have Infely brought the .?ubject of
Partisanship Int.*- the slim pest play,
by demandine the election of a Re
publican Congress nnd Senate, and
the defeat nf members of their own
party, who have roted for the Presi
dent In the conduct of the war. Mr.
Tumulty said:
Letter to Mr. Hnys.
September 12. {%%%
My dear Mr, Hays:
I am very glad indeed to have your
disclaimer. Although I observed
In one of the Washington morning
papers an acknowledgement by
Republican Chairman M otter. of
Kansas, that he had given to the
press in that state the interview ta
which ? called your attention, I
prefer to accept your own explana
tion.
The penerai trend of your letter,
however, still leaves doubt in my
mind as to thf responsiveness of some
n( the Republican managers to the
clearly implied desire of the Ameri
can people to keep politics out of
the war While the whole thought
of President Wilson has been given
to tho ."uceessful prosecution of the
war, the foremost leader* of the
Republican party, includine yourself
and Senator Pen rose, have been mnk
?nr fere vent nreuments in favor of a
restoration of the old political con
trol of the nation. I have In mind
your obviously partisan statement in
the New York Times of a short time
aso wherein you said:
? f?ur coming politicai activity ts not
to he lessened. On the contrary, what
we want in this country Is not 'less
polities,' hMt more attenion to poli
ti, i.?
AIM I recall a recent speech you
mido in Philadelphia in which you
said:
"We will bring the government hack
to the limitations and principles of
the Constitution in time of peace and
establish policies which will again
bind up the wound* of war, renew our
'-rn*penty, administer the affairs of
tho government with the greatest
economy, enlarge our strength at
home and abroad, prevent ?he fur
ther spread of the Socialistic tendency
of the time* towards Federal owner
ship of all the creation and distribu
tion of wealth as a panacea for all
the real and fancied Ills of society
and pet the nation** feet once more
firmly on the path of progress."
Attempt Against re ? rose.
I doubt whether the remarks
which 1 have quoted can be in
lerpreted in any way other than as
mo implied criticism of some of the!
?? ? - -sary wsr policies of the gov
ernment, which you claim the Re
publican party, a* a minority, sup
ported in Congress, and which, you
?'a ini ? indi'-ate, tin y would over-,
mm if returned hs a majority in ?
Congt??'.-?. A similar political *pecch
by Senator Penrose of Pennsylvania
makes tiii? assumpt Ion of your
p -ning In?vitable. H? said:
?J want to say to the Republican :
natty: Keep it vigorous and virile j
all through the United States, eue
reSpful whenever it can be success-?
ful nnd if under the guidance of the!
'halfmnn of the National Commit-1
t< ". we ran secure a Republican
majority in th-? House of Repre- j
senta tires at Washington, i beli o ve
that we have reached a point In thej
development of the situation when!
it Will be beat to replace the D?mo
cratie party for military Improve- :
ment nnd economical efficiency. We j
are all pulling together in order to
stop th** war as soon as we possibly ?
can stop i*. and then, Mr. Chairman.
over and above all the people, by
an over whelming note, we will vote |
the Republican party in control ofi
the American people; as the country
has never prospered economically
till lesa it hri* bren under Republican
eontr.nl. Tjct us keep up an efficient,
organisation in Pennsylvania and
s II tlrrongh the Knifed States, and
make a successful Republican con
test gt every opportunity (n every
Con fresst dna} district and at the
next Presidential election, and en
deavor to assure the election of Re
publican candidates."
Even more partiB-m was the speech
61 Genfft-i W. Wlekersham. for
merly Attorney General of the
United States, some weeks ago at
a Republican meeting at I,ancast-?r.
Pa. He was ((noted in the Lancas
ter intelligencer as follows:
"See to It that you elect Repub
lican Congressmen, Congressmen
who will not be at the beck nnd call
of the President. Also see to it
that the Republican Congressmen
who acquiesced In what the Presi
dent wanted in the Iflst two years
are retired." *
Democrats \ ote ?olili.
I am afraid that your quoted
?speeches, the spt-eeh of Senator Pen
roee, and your letter of today, indi-.
cafe all too plainly that some Repub
licans And it difficult to think outside
the realm of politics. The vast body
of Republican voters, now standing I
with all Democratic voters, staunchly I
behind government doubtless will be
interested In nny statement you might
care to make as to how far you would '
go in repealing the law* which have
made America'* participation in the
war so effective
Tim president's war aim.-1" have been
made the aims nf all the nations fight
ing against the <>rioan government.
These aims have been Stated unequt
vocally hy the President upon a num
ber of occasions since the war began.
Not merely the American people, but
al? Ihe world is familiar with these
alms which assure '*force without
?tint" until victory i* achieved.
It is only through the subtle Insin
uations that characterise partisan
politico ?hat these aims might be di
luted with any doubt It is quite I
obviously partisan and gratuitous for
you to refer to "the imperative neces
sity of a vigorous proseeu/ion of the
war and a conclusive peace only, and
the need of a Republican Congress ?o
that end " That this reference was
not ? ? inadvertence is shown by the
SgM-ach of Congressman S. *D. Kess. ?
chairman of the Republican National
Knnffres^lohrtl Committee, Wherein he!
amia:
RetHiblicatt succ?s? vili ndl only
