THE WASHINGTON TIMES. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1917. ' 2 to the department, he was Joined by Presidential Secretary Tumulty, who had Just returned from the Capitol to arrange with House and Senate leaders for the Joint session this afternoon. Talk 'With Tumulty. They stopped a moment and talked tog-ether. In the face of the bitterest wind that has swept Washington this winter, but neither would make any Comment. "The President Is to address Con gress at 2 o'clock this afternoon be yond that we can say absolutely noth ing After Secretary Lansing- left the White House the President went over to the executive offices. Into the Cab inet room, and eat alone at his work. He brought over a bundle of pa pers, covering routine business, and walked briskly Into the chamber where yesterday the Cabinet met with him in discussion of the historic step taken today. Speaker Xot nt Capitol. Speaker Clark had not reached the Capitol when the President sent his request for a Joint session. Majority Leader Kitchln made ar rangements for-the historic affair. The galleries. Just beginning to fill when ihe momentous news came, were immediately emptied. Not more than thirty members were in the House when It met, at 11 o'clock. To Receive Wilson's Memtge. Kitchln offered'a resolution -by the House, the Senate concurring, that the two houses .assemble at 2 o'clock In the afternoon to receive such com munications as the" PesIdent of the United States may e- pleased to make to them." There was a listless chorus of "ayes" as the resolution was adopted. Many members had not heard of the Joint session; such as had heard of the Joint session, had no Informa tion excepting that given them by re porters, elevator men. and attendants generally In the building, who were Just beginning to hear and realise the tremendous weight of the. break. CAM Fire of Questions. Kitchln immediately was -subjected to a crossfire of questions- by most of the members In the House. Minority Leader Mann Inquired Whether- any action would be required of the House at the Joint session. v Kitchln said he understood no ac tion would be requested by the Presi dent. Mann nodded, nervously, and sat down, obviously trying to appear un impressed. The House 'by this time, rapidly filling, went into committee of the whole, and a debate qn the navy bill started. Pacifist Made Speech. Congressman Oscar Callaway, of Commanche county, Tex., born at Harmony Hill (Nlp-and-tuck)," as de scribed in theCongres3lonaIrdIrectory, began a speech. "1 am a pacifist member of the Na val Comraltee. I might even be called a bellirerent pacifist. I am ready to oppose even to the point of contest any effort to drive us into this war. I say uo that, tin my Judgment as an American citizen, without any ambi tions of, what may be said, I would nor go to war over a little zone of twenty miles around Great Britain, because of the method of warfarfe carried on by Germany. DliCDun Xavy. Callaway went on to discuss the differences between submarines and "ordinary warships," criticised the Naval Committee for voting so many big ships and said: "Npw these warriors come here and submit a bill that will cost us $392, 000,000, based on estimates which the committee brought down to about S364.000,000, including flat appropria tions for additional battleships of 55,000,000 when there Isn't even a contract let for any of the battle cruisers provided for last ye&r. Won Little Applause. "I hope war will be irreconcilable to everybody," Callaway concluded. .Three Democrats Stephens of Ne braska, Bailey of Pennsylvania, and Huddleston of Alabama Meyer Lon don, lone Socialist, and one member of the Republican side heard but not seen applauded. Congressman Farr of Pennsylvania expressed surprise "that in this great crisis men arise here and trv o . tard the navy." He said the navy Is less ready to meet trouble than it was in 1812. He suspended while a messenger nuiu me senate announced that body had concurred in the House Joint session resolution, and resumed: "We should not be confronted with uiis crisis If we had followed th. .H vice of Admiral Dewey and his as sociates and had been prepared." INVITATIONS EXTENDED. Formal Invitations to attend a con ference here on March 6 for the con sideration of plans for a permanent States exposition were extended the governors of the various States today by William McK. Clayton, chairman of the Inaugural exhibit committee of the Federation of Citizens' Associa tions. The meeting will be held in the ballroom of the Powhatan Hotel. THE WEATHER REPORT.

SEARCH CARIBBEAN FOR U-BOAT BASE Investigating to Ascertain Where Submarines Are Getting Fuel.. . SEARCHED CAROLINA COVE Neutral Tanker Believed to Be Supplying Unknown Teu ton Haven.- A systemic investigation has been started by American Government offlcals, it was learned today from an authoritative quarter, for the pur pose of finding out where the Ger man submarines believed to b op erating off the coast of South Amer ica are obtaining their supply of fuel oil and provisions. Naval experts who have been con sulted have expresed the conviction that the. only possible sources of the oil supply are In -the oil fields of Tamplco, Mexico, or in the United Stater, American or other neutral tank ships are suspected of being the medium through which oil Is convey ed to. the submarines. Naval offi cers are also convinced that one or more German submarines bases are being maintained on some out-of-the way Island in the Carribean Sea. German Oil Properties. It is known that German Interests control considerable oil deposits near Tamplco where the principal British supply is also located. It is .realized, however, tha these German owned fields would be of -no use to the German submarines unless ships could be obtained to transport the .supply, and It is realized also that the only facilities ror transporting it would be those afforded by Amer ican or neutral ships, there being no German merchant vesels available for the purpose. While all ships taking on oil at any port are supposed to get clear ance papers for a definite port or destination, it Is suspected that some of these are stopping at some secret base and there depositing some of their oil cargo. Mexican port author ities, of easy conscience, it is sus pected, are certifying, for a consid eration, to "short" cnroes where as in fact the vessels under .suspicion may be clearing with full cargoes. In this way. It Is pointed out. the vessels could dispose of part of their oil enroute without there being a-dis 'crepancy between the amount of the cargo certified to at the point oi departure and the amount deposited at the final port of destination. tavy Department Probe. Recently an exhaustive inquiry was made by the Navy Department con cerning the island of Curacoa, off tne northern coast of Venezuela, Informa tion having beer) received that a ba- e had been established there. The in land Is out of the sea lanes, and would be Ideal, It is statedf for such a pur pose. In ordinary times it Is unin habited At the time the Inquiry was made officials In Washington had been in formed that the Hamburg-American Steamship Company, which maintains large docking facilities and a high powered wireless station on the in land of St. Thomas,' In the DanMh West Indies, was preparing with the transfer of the Danish possessions to the United States, to move to Curacoa. As far as officials here have been able to ascertain, the reports are without foundation. Big Coal Supply. In adltlon to enormous docking fa cilities at Ft Thomas Island, it was explained today, the Hamburg-American line maintains there an enormous supply of coal. Ever since the out break of the war. It was stated, ef forts have been made by the steam ship company to get permission from the Danish government to use the wireless station as a means' of com municating with Germany. The per mission was refused, and the appa ratus sealed by the Danish officials. It Is no secret In the Inner circles in Washington that the ideal facilities offered at fit. Thomas for a naval base. and the possibility that Germany, In the eveut of war with the United States, might try to seize It and then setle with Denmark, .proved an Impel ling motive for the purchase of the Islands by the United States. Since the negotiations for the purchase got under way the islands have ben keDt under more or less surveillance byi tne American navy Een Dragged Cove. Another Inquiry by officials here was directed tonards a small erne In Port Royal sound on the coast of South Caro lina. So circumstantial were the reports received to the effect that German sub marines were fuelling there from large oil tanks submerged In the cove, that a naval vessel. It became known today, vat actually sent there and the cote dragged for dajs In an effort to find out whether any such tanks were there. The effort proved fruitiest. That officials of some of the big oil companies of the United S.ates are par ties to the secret of Germany's oil sup ply on this side of the Atlantic Is the firm conviction of many officials It Is known, too, that some of them have been questioned, but without success. Perplexing Problem. While it Is stated that the conquest of Rumania and certain parts of Russia by the German forces placed at the dis posal of Germany oil fields of sufficient extent to supply the submarines operat ing In the new German war zone, it Is regarded as inconceivable that any of this supply could bi transported across the Atlantic from a German port and regularly supplied to the submarines that have been operating In the South Atlantic FOG BELLS TO GUIDE TOURISTS DENVER, Col., Feb. 3.

The army. general staff has worked ouf a plan of operation for the United States army If the breach of diplo matic relations with Germany In vokes the United States in war with the centrat powers.

The tentative plan of the army gen fI8Uff ca,u for tha creation of 100 army divisions of 20,000 officers and men each. For this army there would be required something like 50.000 officers. At present there are 6.000 officers in the United States army. 100 Major Generals.

In preparing the data for the pro posed universal service bill, the army staff decided that there would be LOOO.OOO younar men subieet to call for military training every year If the call embraced every young man attaining the age of eighteen or nine teen that year.

First Three Classes.
