THE WASHINGTON TIMES, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1917.
16 $20,000,000,000 IS COST OF FIRST 5 MONTHS An early adjustment In conference of the differences between the two houses over the $8,000,000,000 war de ficiency appropriation bill Is ex pected. The bill passed the Senate yesterday without roll call, after It had been debated for a short time. The Senate added nearly 1600,000.000 to the bllL A feature of the discussion was that Senator Martin, chairman of the Appropriations Committee, urged sharp scrutiny of what he called ex travagant and almost reckless depart mental estimates. He laid appropria tions In five months "of war would reach 120,000,000,000, and he wis con cerned lest next year's total might reach $50,000,000,000. "We are compelled to shut our eyes aad appropriate a great deal rather than hamper our men on the battle field," said Senator Martin. "But It Is our duty to scrutinize these esti mates, crowing every hour. We must give every dollar necessary to prose cut the war. but our duty It to trim down extravagant and useless appro priations. The Government's finances are In a perilous situation." Against the protest of Senator Mar tin, the Senate adopted an amend ment by Senator Robinson for $500,000 for the employment bureau of the Department of Labor. The shipping hoard gets $635,000,000 cash for the construction program. The navy is allowed $225,000,000 to tart a destroyer construction program.

"We hope to have In the War De partment the best possible exhibit of our troops in Europe for future gen erations," Brigadier General Squler, Signal Corps chief, told the Senate Appropriations Committee. "We also win have photographers in aeroplanes. That Is the only way to make maps. Tou put one day's photograph over the previous day's and mark off the shell craters which show the changes." The movie operators are now train ing chiefly at Little Silver, N. J., and Fort Wood, N Y., though a number are already with Pershing. LIBERTY BOND REALITY TO THOUSANDS TODAY A liberty bond becomes a reality today for thousands of Americans, with actual delivery of the first loan bonds. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing, although working night and day, has not yet printed all the B.000,000 engraved pieces In the issue, but enough has been done, officials exclaimed, "to Insure a fair start."

National Savings & Trust Company, Comer 15th and N. Y. Avtx. FIFTV-FinST TEAR. A general strike of machinists employed .at Government navy yards Is threatened today as a re sult of President Wilson's action In declining to take a hand In the dispute at this time. The President today referred an appeal of the International Asso ciation of Machinists from the wage scale fixed by the arsenal and navy yard wage adjustment board to Secretary of the Navy Daniels. Secretary Daniels, In turn, referred the appeal back to the wage board whose original de cision was complained of. The machinists in their appeal to the President said the wage board had entirely disregarded the recommendations of local committees of the various navy yards for Increases ranging 10 to 40 per cent. The new scale de cided upon by the wage board went into effect Monday.

WALL ST. MARKET PRICES WEAK AT OPENING IN NEW YORK PLAY WITH ARMY PISTOL MAY COST BOY'S EYE ON PLAM TO ENTER E By HOMER J. DODGE. ATLANTIC CITY, N. J Sept. 26- Members of the American Bankers' Association are divided on the ques tion of State banks and trust com panies entering the Federal reserve system. Such leaders as James B. Forgan, chairman of the First Na tional Bank of Chicago, and Brecken ridge Jones, president of the Missis sippi Valley Trust Company of St. Louis, advocate the plan as a move to strengthen American finances dur ! Ing the war. i State bankers and trust companies ! dislike coming under the Influence of the Comptroller of the Currency and fear a sacrifice of Independence by being swallowed by larger bank branches. Comptroller Williams' recent ex pose of defalcations by President Martlndale of the Chemical National Bank of New York, following Martin dale's death. Is being criticised by many bankers. They say the only results were needless disgrace falling on the Mar tlndale family, and reflection on the ST'-rZrtf dd't'hV-iPRESIDENT INVITED TO posure was due to Comptroller Wll- 1"JU1V""X """"' Hams' alleged prejudice against Wall! street institutions.
