J., WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 1917 TWELVE PAGES—TWO CENTS CONSCRIPTION FOES IN BITTER ι FIGHT ON BILL New Jersey Senator in Initial Speech Makes Earnest Plea for Selective Army Draft— President Takes Up Action in Attack on Foes of Measure. tfecial by United l-<ess TV(ri). Washington, April 25—Antl-con •criptionlsts brought up their strong est gunners in congress today. Speaker Champ Clark openly opposed to se lective draft was booked to speak In the House In an effort to sway his following against the administration's measure. Majority Leader Kltchln, who voted against the war déclaration was like wise understood to bo ready to talk against the draft, while Representa tives Metiin, fiery administration ora tor, planned an attack against those who aie thwarting what army men say is indensible—the draft bill. Some of the pro-conscriptlonists planned to read the interview of Gen eral Bridges British leader wherein he showed that England had learned the conscription lesson only after pas sage through a sea of blood. Repre sentative Kahn, of California, Repub lican, lu charge of the selectlvo draft fight, predicted passage of tho bill. In the senate Senator Chamberlain, chairman of the military committee, planned to size up the sentiment «gain. Indications were that action will not come in that body beforo Saturday or Monday, though the House probably will vote bome time tomorrow. Speaker Clark's opposition to univer sal service Is not considéré?!* vital by those favoring the administration measure, and the announcement that Alt? Will ιιιαηυ u ημοο^ιι Bb4'1"·31 »'< '° "Vl expected to affect the result by those advocating: the passage of the bill. Ill a speech that was replete with historical references, J. S. Frellng liuysen. United States senator from New Jersey, spoke in behalf of compul Kory military training and conscrip tion. The speech was an eloquent ef fort, and was regarded by some of the senators as one of tho best that has been delivered thus far in the military bill now under consideration. Senator Frelingliuysen reviewed the Revolutionary war, the Avar of 1812 and told of tho difficulties that beset the country in the early days of the war of 1865 when the volunteer sys tem was tried out. The senator quoted from the utterances of sevoral former secretaries of war to show the weak ness of the volunteer system. Taking up the question of the pres ent war the senator said In part: "An army to be efficient must be of one mind and that mind the command er-in-chief s, otherwise it will not have morale and spirit. An army to be effective must be a machine. We are fighting the most efficient army in ex igence. If Germany conquers In this war she conquers the world. No other nations of strength remain to stop her supremacy, and her long known and cherished ambition to attain the hega laony of the world will bo accomplish ed, and your children and mine will be brought up under Prussian philosophy And "Kultur" and the world will go back to the dark ages in Its subscrip tion to a Hohenzollern policy. "Let us not commit the unpardon able blunder of building upon the fact that this nation has, in the final anal ysis emerged victor In her several wars. This Is not a war with Mexico. This Is not a war with an effete, decadent nation, lacking in virility and sunk into a state of desuetude. This Is not a war ■where any nation can muddle through. "We must exercise the highest de free of efficiency. We must put every ounce of our national character into the scale. \Ve must mobilize every fibre of our being. There must be a coordination of all our assets, spiritual, Intellectual and physical. Oply thus may we expect to be α real factor in evolving order from the chaos which now envelopes tho world, and in bring ing about a peace that shall endure. "In α word, let us give America at once that plan of military action now employed by every one of the Euro pean belligerents, compulsory service, ■without which our efforts will be fu tile and our aid to our allies pitifully Inadequate." After speaking of t.fte Ills of the volunteer system, ho Bald: "An hour's maneuvering In an armory each week, a few days spent In a camp, once a year, does not make a soldier. The mills of the military rods grind slowly, and the finished product comes only as a result of a laborious, strenuous, crucial process. The weaklings fall by the wayside; the fit survive. "We have been living In a shelter ed valley and the great peaks of hon or, duty, patriotism, all have been for f;otten. Wo shall descend Into the val ey again, but as long as the men and •women of this generation last they Mrill carry in thler hearts the image of these mighty peaks whose founda tions are not shaken, though Europe and even the whole world rock and «way In tho convulsions of a great war."

Teh only business transacted In open meeting was the granting ο a renewal of the saloon license of John Liposky, at 728 Cortlandt street, which waa held over from the last meeting, an application of Thomas Brown who claimed α deficiency in the bond of the saloon keeper. Tho licenso was granted last nigth without a dissent ing vote. The matter of raising tho fee for the transfer of the license was taken up, and a suggestion made that the board pass legislation which would bring the fee for a transfer, either from man to man or from place to place, from the present rate of $00, to $150 or $200. Tho matter lias been under considera tion for some time, and although the board took not action last night, they will probably pass on the question at their regular monthly meeting, which is to takoTplace at City Hall Tuesday night, of next week. One of the commissioners said today that tho matter was brought out as a means to prevent the Indiscriminate transfer of licenses, and the trading of managers or owners, and for un desirable or unprofitable neighbor hoods to ones more prosperous from the saloonkeepers' viewpoint. It is likely, too, that legislation will be taken by the board within a short time, which will bring about a raising of tho other fees here, Including that for retail places from $4 50 a year to $500, or even more. Among certain of tho commissioners there Is a de termination to raise these fees, to a higher standard, in order to either low er the number of licensed places here, or to Improve conditions. There are at present 155 licenses held in this city for liquor establishments, the commissioner said today, and the num ber should be at least cut In half. The meeting on Tuesday promises to bring out several interesting facts, ow ing to the subject of the transfer of the license of Oscar Schroeder from 46 Smith street to 181 Smith streeti the discussion over raising the transfer fee, and other matters which will be brought up. At least two of the com missioners have signified thfelr Inten tion of voting against the transfer of Schroeder's license, while It Is under stood that the otlier three are out for the license. In giving his reasons for voting as he Intends on the transfer, the commis sioner said that his understanding of the matter would not permit of his vot ing in favor of It. He said that he was certain, from knowledge that he has gained that the license If trans ferred, Is later to be transferred to several men, prominent In political circles here. At the last meeting of the board, Is aac Alpern appeared for a number of remonstrators, and Thomas Brown ap pealed for the transfer. In representing, Schroeder. ARRAIGN 30 AT HEALTH BO.

Once again the Germans are using great masses of men poured with reck less prodigality for human life Into the rents where the stubborn British advance has penetrated. British artil lery directed against these massed in fantry troops, literally tore them to pieces, but In many places along the line the number of men hurled by the Gorman commanders was so great that their pressure literally forced tlieni beyond the barrage Are.

Phone 336 / BALFOUR OUTLINES OBJECT OF WAR British Foreign Secretary Condemns Certain Critics Who Think France and England Have Come to Inveigle U. S. Into Entangling Alliances With European Forces. eaectal bu United Prett Wire. Washington, April 25—Condem nation of "certain critics who ihlnk France and Great Britain have come here to inveigle the United States Into entangling alliances with Euro pean forces," was voiced by British Foreign Secretary Arthur J. Balfour, in a public statement here today. The British today on the eve of the great est Avar council, outlines α brief dec laration of motives and principles on behalf of our European Allie?. "There could be no rumors with less foundation than the one I have Just outlined," he said. "And were It true there could be no more fallacious pol icy. But," and here the dean of Brit ish diplomats was his smiling self again. "I wish to assure the people of this great nation that the assist ance we are going to get from the United States Is based on no such shallow consideration." Then turning abruptly to America's part In the war Balfour said "you have been watching this blood stained drama from afar. "Each month the conviction in your mind lias grown that no small or petty Interests are Involved. "You realize that this Is not α quai; rel for so many square miles of ter ritory." "You know thoroughly well that the liberty of mankind alone Is ani mating the Allied cause. Therefore, you have Joined in the great conflict. "We know you." Taking α step nearer his auditors the British envoy, hie tall, slender form tense, spoko quietly and earn estly of his feeling toward America and the feelings he had sensed In America toward the Allies' cause. "You will see the war through. If there Is any certainty In human af faire, that Is certain." Balfour did not mention α separ ΛΛΑΛ/νΛΛ/ννννΝΛΑΛΑΛΛ/ννννΝΛ^νννννννννν «te peace, but every one wlio heard him knew what ho meant. "No one who has walked among you can for one moment doubt the full determination of the American people to throw themselves whole heartedly Into the greatest conflict ever waged," he went on. "I Indeed appreciate the opportu nity to say to the American public how very deeply we value your kind ness, your enthusiasm and the warmth of your welcome. "All our hearts are touched by your outward and visible manifesta tions of that sympathetic emotion which accompanied the assumption of your part in the great cause and the assuring of its success." Turning to the arrival of the French commission, Balfour paid trib ute to the French pooplo In general, but particularly to the part Mrashal Joffre played In the battle of the Marne characterizing that battle as "the most decisive ever fought: and the turning point In the history of mankind. "For the reason" he said, "we feel particularly glad that General Joffre is arriving here today. "Thè magnitude of America's asslst ence to France, England and her oth er allies cannot be exaggerated." Balfour concluded with α pro found expression of regret on hear ing the news of Bonar Law's son be ing reported missing at the front. "Of the cabinet members who were together in England at the beginning of the war," said he, "one lias been killed In action, four have lost sons and now Bonar I^aw meets the com mon and deeper sorrow which has visited the humblest to the highest homes In England. The sorrow and tragedy of France has been greater than ours because France lias by far the greater army." V*A/VWWVWWS/WWVWArfWSyWSA/WWV* FOOD COMMITTEE RECEIVES SEEDS Y. M. H. A. and Y. M. C. A.
