Elliott.) WASHINGTON, Alay 23. Is tbe old man to bo driven out of the army, too? Is younger blood to push mm aside there also? Major General Leonard Wood re cently made an astonishingly frank statement to the bouse commiteeo n ion on military affairs that would lead to such a belief, and that uas caused considerable talk here at the capital, where the army has its headquar ters and the money is appropriate! for its maintenance. "We don't want the professional " soldier any more," said the chief ot tho staff. "Tho recruit, the youus man, makes the best fighter. An army vita old captains, old privates and seasoned campaigners, ia gen erally a dead army, with little in erest in its work and tho daily rou tlno ot army life. Not Worth His Salt. "The man who has been in the service for a number of jears may bo all right for a park policeman, but for a fighter, he is hardly worth his ualt- .Frank words wore those of Gener al Wood, and the committee mem bers urged! him to go fully into tnls problem ot supplanting the season ed campaigners with raw recruits. General Wood was opposing the Hay bill, which proposes that the period of enlistment shall be extend ed from" three to five ears. The gen eral told the committco that three yes?s is sufficient, and that tho army did not want all of its sot diers to reenllst. About twenty five por cent of them, do, eaid the gener al, and this is approximately all tho army needs In tho way of traln- od and service-seasoned men. lien- . .. m .k. k v" tTr.

"II the Spanish-American war had continued mnch longer," ex plained: General Wood, "wo would havo had to finish it -with volun teers. It wa3 well for tho old men In the service that it ended soon af ter the fall of Santiago." The chief of staff declared that at - tor a soldier had been three years In the aJrmy. it bo-umes a monoto nous existence to ira, that he doe not tako interest in drills, that be objects to being thrown in with re cruits and that general dissatisfac tion results, to tho detriment ot the service. "A three year enlistment with a reserve corps is tho right plan. 1 belong to that military school that Is opposed to long enlistments," continued General Wood. "Here is tho situation that con fronts u& today. Most of tho young men join the army with the Idea of seeing something of the world. For a time tho service Is a novelty and they take an interest In their work. What happens if these same men re-enlist? They must go over, day after day, tho same drills, the same maneuvers. The old-timers know It all, yet they are expected to go out on tho field1 with a lot of recruit who are Just learning. Interest Decreases. Naturally, this becomes irksome and all ot the Interest In the work iierarts from the soldier, who re mains In the service year after year. We are trying to discoura&u the professional soldier. We do not want him. Speaking frankly, the man who stays in the service for thirty years, at the cad of which time ho may re tire, but woo never rises above the tank ot a private. Is not a good sol dier after all. lt le said that some of these men remain privates because they do not vrant to assume the responsibilities attached to the position of a non commissioned officer.

The socialistic move ment in lower California is expect ed to give trouble, and the combined forces of tho federals and insurrectos available in that territory, together with troops from this section, will be turned on the revolutionists in thn far west should they persist In their I activity. Little fear that the return of Gen. Reyes will have a disturbing effect 'in Mexico Is held by Madero. Tonight the rebel leader Issued Ihe following statement commenting en tho utterances of Gen.

I person ally never have entertained such fears, but it pleases me that he ha expressed himsell in such explicit terms because he thus facilitates onr work of pacifying tho country and adds to the confidence of foreigners In us. With all Mexicans united and inspired by the highest patriotic sen timent which In the present time guides all parties, eradicating, as General Reyes well says, all sorts ot personal ambitions, there is no doubt but that Mexico very soon will repose In peace, prejudice which has caused the revolution being sweot as Me, and the country developing rapidly un der tho new regime of hopes for lib erty."

Madero Will Enter the Capital in Triumph MEXICO CITY, May 23j Notwith standing tho official signing of the peace agreement, the capital is more nearly Isolated tonight thep since tho inauguration or hostilities. Ignorant, apparently that the war Is endod- of ficially, one email band of rebels un der Candido Navarro last night cut the National railroad near San Felipe, south ot San Luis Potosi, and an other band stopped all traffic over tho Mexican railroad .by ripping out tho rails ani burning a bridg-j near iluamantle. Ignorant of Peace. This revival of rebel activities was not regarded as meaning that the Insurrectos will refuse to abide bj the terms of tho peace treaty. Yes terday the armistice agreed upon came to a. close and it is believed not Impossible that there are bun i dreds and possibly thousands of reb- ' nntry is officially at peace. At tho foreign office and in other government circles almost every oao expressed optimism believing thai the peaceful solution ot all difficul ties is near. Prepare for Attack. Unofficially this optimism is not so apparent Within tho last sevemdays the federal garrison has been great- ly strengthened- and the capture of tho capital would now be difficult. From Cucrnavaca comes a dlsauiet- Ing rumor today that the Figueroas will tnot agreo to stop fighting unless the cabinet chosen Is accept able to them. Fight Among Themselves. It is reported also that Figueroa and his chief lieutenant, Asunsolo. are not thoroughly in accord and that Asunsolo has incurred tho enmity of Zapata, the captor of Cuatla, -whom ne nas oranded as a bandit. It is not tapwslbto that tbe forces of thoro two may yet come in conflict. Such dissension has the effect of minim- tno gouth, Diaz's Last Visit. Unless there is a hitch in the plans General Diaz will present his resig nation to the chamber of deputies tomorrow afternoon. He is expect ed to go to the chamber personally. Accompanying him will be tho fam ous presidential guards, and his visit will be attended by all the ceremon ies ordinarily observed. Vice Presi dent Corral's resignation Is said to have been received. Just prior to the resignation of the president, it is expected that all mem bers of the present cabinet with the exception of Minister of Foreign Re lations de la Darra will resign. Their letters of resignation will be deliver, ed to Minister de la Barra ror trans mission to the president. Will Leave Soon. When Diaz will leavo Mexico is not generally known, but it is certain that not many days will elapse after his resignation. With him. will go his entire family, including his son, Porflrlo Diaz, Jr. It has been thought that the Jour ney to France would be made on an ordinary steamer, but today the French legation, acting upon the re quest of the French colony, asked is government to place a cruiser at the general's disposal. . Many Others to Retire. Almost coincident with the resig nation ot President Diaz, it is expect ed will be offered tho resignation ot many army officials and federal Min orities who prefer to retire, instead of awaiting possible elimination by the Madero government. Among thoa ";nown to have presented their rcsiaatlons Is Gen. Garcia Cuellar, tho officer who commanded the fed. erals at the battle of Casas Grande. Another probable resignation is that of Gnelarmo do Lancia Y Escando, governor of the federal district. A Brilliant Event. Francisco L Madero's entry into the capital will be a brilliant event. At tho station there will bo men whose claims for tamo havo been,, es tablished in tho last six months, as well aa men who have long enjoyed tho gopd- will of the old government. MEMBER ASSOCIATED PRESS BISBEE, ARIZONA WEDNESDAY MORNING MAY 24,"l9lT CHEAPER BUTE OF INSURANCE S DISCUSSED City Council and Mayor Ed mundson "Conferring With Insurance Agent About the Matter LARGER AVAILABLE WATER SUPPLY NEEDED Water Company Is Preparing Data Concerning Cost and Requirements for Supply At a special meeting of the city council last night Mayor Edmundson and Aldermen Nowman, Henderson, SchmMf German aiid Hughes were present. While there xias not a great deal accomplished deflnitely, a number of important matter: were discussed and this evidenced tho fact that Bisbee's city council is earnestly at work to keep the city affairs in the best shape possible. City Engineer Zeisiner prescntea a plat flung tho grade up Tombstone canyon from Masonic temple to the Metz soda works. It was approved by the council and the city attorney was directed to draw an ordinance establishing, tho grade as platted. Attorney J. M. Roes presented a bill for 5G.075 on account of a Judg ment against tho city in favor ot Mrs. Braziel. The matter was laid on the table. City Plumber Perry reported 21 feet of water in the reservoir and that he -was pumping at the rate of 12.000 gallons per day and that 7,500 gallons por day was being taxen oui for sprinkling purposes. It was reported that the cost of extending the sewer up Tombstone canyon from .the Lincoln school to i the cltr Hmlts, nine-tenths o:annlle, would bo $1,500. A portion of this extension would bo of eight-Inch pipe ) and some would bo six inch plpo. It was suggested that tho street committco should make an examina- !tlon staining .walls a1 proposed extensions and decide what was necessary to be done before tho rainy season started, for protection o streets and property. The street committco after deciding what is im peratively necessary will confer with, the finance committee regarding tunds available. -Tho committee will start on an Inspection trip ,at 4 o'clock tills evening from the Fair store. Alderman Henderson suggested that there were several places where ex tensions to the sewer could be made at little expense which would accom modate a number of homes. The street committee was asked to look into these matters and report. The city attorney suggested that In any extension of tho sewer a right-of-way should be taken from owners of property through which it passed. Alderman Oilman brought up the matter of providing water for the cemetery, which has had no water for two months. It was suggested by Alderman Schmid that it should be easy to raise money by public sub scriptlon for this purpose. Tho clerk was directed to notify the lodges ot. the city to send representatives to meet the water committee of the council in tho city hall at 4 o'clock Saturday evening. Fire Protection Alderman Nowman brought up tho matter of tho proposition made to tho city bv a representative of tho fire insurance companies for cheaper insurance for tho city. Mayor Ed mundson stated that Mr. Reed .of tho Blsbee-Naco water company nau told him that he was having some data prepared and that he would" probably bo ready to meet the coun cil, or a committee, at an early day, when the matter of the requirement of an additional supply of water to bo available in caso of a .series of tires could be discussed intelligently. It is believed by several members of the council and perhaps all of them that it is possible for the council to effect a very important saving to the property owners of Bisbee in the matter of fire insurance rates. The insurance expert, who recently visited Bisbee, found that the city water supply, while adequato perhaps for putting out an ordinary fire, was not sulnclently reliable to Justify nny re duction in rates. It was, however, pointed out that if the city would provide an additional source and sup ply ot water which shall be avallablo at all times to the extent of ono thousand gallons per minute deliv ered in their reservoir, a substan tial reduction In insurance rates would bo granrcd to Bisbee.
