THE WASHINGTON TIMES, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1917.

$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.

TO BE SHOWN BY FILMS
Government Wants Movie Opera
tors to Follow Boys on Battlefield.
The record of America's part in the
world war will be wrlten on movie
films by the nation's best movie operators.
"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."
Holders of full. paid interim certifi

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.

already has begun an Inquiry into
conditions of which complaint is
made. Qeorge S. Wilson, secretary
of the board, visited the workhouse

his report to the board.
A conference was held today be
tween Commissioner Brownlow, and
John Joy Edson, president of the
Board of Charities; Mr. Wilson and
Superintendent WhlAaker. At its
close Commissioner Brownlow said

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

Matthew Hepburn, fourteen, of 1618
Nineteenth street northwest, in play
ing soldier last night, was at the bed
side of his chum at Emergency Hos
pital today.
X-ray photographs of Hepburn's
wound, made as the bullet frorn a
heavy caliber army revolver plowed
its way through the left side of the
face, were taken at the hospital this
morning. Hepburn's left eye Is
swollen as a result of the wound re
ceived, but hospital physicians do not
think that he will lose the sight of
the optic.
The boys were toying with a re
volver of Dr. E. G. Seibert, father of
young Seibert, at the physician's
home, when the accident occurred. Dr.
Seibert was recently commissioned In
the army medical corps, and had left
the revolver at the house. Young
Seibert, In soldler-Uke uniform, was
endeavoring to explain Its mechanism.
