It was a whole-hearted welcome, ex pressing gratitude for the service per formed. All who saw the boys march must have been impressed with the im provement in their military form lif ter some six months of active field service under conditions almost as trying as if there had been actual hostilities with Mexico. Their health is excellent and the general appearance dt the troops showed the results of arduous train ing. li a few weeks of drill and dis cipline can work such wonders With a body of men such as these, how strong the argument for universal mil itary training. Individually these boys form the ba sis of a fine army. They are brave, sturdy and patriotic, but the military system which exerts control is wrong and fundamentally weak. Despite the fact that the mobiliza tion of the troops at the border show ed up the weakness of our military organization in all its tragic propor tions, the trajnlng and discipline have been benefj^jfjU' We trupfrtlM boys are tomato stay and piflfjjtire of foreign af etit? them N.,'to colors agafti?performed tuelr service well. lEach man has reflected credit upon his state. Welcome home! PRIVATE MANAGEMENT BEST. The promptness with which man ufacturing concerns, great and small, are offering their full service to the government in case of need should go far to check any tendency on the part of Congress to press measures for the taking over and the public op eration of such establishments. They can do a greatdeal better work under the management of their ow^ officers than under the direction of any talent which the classified civil service can provide—and they will. THEIR IMPORTANCE. Commercially, the most important feature of the recently acquired West tlndies is the fine harbor at Charlotte iAmalie on the island of St. Thomas, according to a commercial survey of the islands, just completed by agents of the bureau of foreign and domestic commerce, of the department of com merce. This survey emphasizes the convenience of the harbor as a dis tributing center for all of the Lesser Antilles. It lies on the direct line of communication between 'European ports and the entrance of the Pana ma canal, as well as in direct line for vessels plying between the Atlantic ports of the two Americas or between the Atlantic and Pacific ports of these continents. It is 1,400 miles from New York, 1,020 miles from the Atlantic entrance of the Panama ca nal, and 4&0 miles from La Guaira, the chief port of Venezuela. Its loca tion commands the virgin passage to the Carribean sea, the easternmost gateway to that body of water. 3t. Croix is the largest, wealthiest and most thickly populated of the three islands. It is about 40 miles southeast of St. Thomas and has large areas of very fertile soil. The town of Christiansted, On this island, was the seat of the Danish colonial gov ernment, but Frederiksted, with a much better harbor, is more import ant commercially, doing approximate ly 80 per cent of the import and ex port business of the island. Sugar is the principal product of St. Croix, al though some excellent sea-island cot- ton is grown. The spenery is unrival ed in the Antilles, though not so typi cally tropical as in some of the other islands. On the island of St. John is grown the bay tree, from which is obtained the oil used in the manufacture of bay rum. The bureau's report states that the major part of the 4)ay rum of -commerce comes from the Danish West indies. The foreign trade of the islands has not been of great importance imports at St. Thomas for the fiscal year ended March 31, 191C, were val ued at $734,080, and this represents about 70 per cent of the imports of the three islands. Of this total, the United States furnished $?» J2,28(i worth, the West Indies $91,748 worth, Great (Britain $88,411 worth, Denmark $50,77# worth, France $ IS,286 worth, Holland $12,001 worth, and Germany $1,19" worth. The United States pur chased $273,C2r worth of goods from the islands in 1915. UNIVERSAL SERVICE. In our opinion the great majority of the people of this country, for the first time in its history, would foliow with enthusiasm the leadership of the President and Congress to the goal of a citizen army, trained and equipped to defend the nation. The principle that the first duty of every citizen of a democracy is to ho prepared' to defend his liberties is fundamental and is unassailable from whatever standpoint considered. Whatever objection some of us mav have urged in the past against the practicability or perhaps the necessi ty Of the application of this principle in this country, falls to the ground when it is analyzed in the light of the present day facts and future prob abilities. iMany months ago this newspaper announced as one of the planks: in its platform of national policies, a fed eral law providing for the military training of every boy for a sufficient time lo qualify himself physically and technically as a soldier ready to re spond to his country's call. We said at that time, we have re peated it many times since and we re peat it again now, with all tin em Ph asis that we can command and with all the sincerity that is in us, that all attempts to solve the problem of cur military defense in any other way were undemocratic and cert'iin to prove futile. Two plans for creating a gv-i.it citi zen army based upon the military training of every male cit:zen when he attains a certain age are now be ing worked out in Washington. One is the plan of the general staff of the army the other the plan of a sub-committee of the sen"if.a commit tee on military affairs. Tin latter is known as the Chamberlain bill, Sena tor Chamberlain of Oregon being its proponent. The chief difference in t'.ia plans is that the general staif phin calls for a year of continuous trai.vn^ rind the Chaifberlain plan for six months of contmubus training. The-r nr-i other minor differences, but in the funda mentals the plans are alikj, as they are both based upon the correct dem ocratic principle that every citizen has equal responsibilitv for the de fense of his country and his individ ual liberties. News from Washington as to the attitude of the administration in re spect to this whole subject of univer sal military training is rather disqui eting. It is to the effect that there is very little, if any enthusiasm for it in the highest places and that it is extreme ly doubtful whether much progress can be made with such legislation at the present session of Congress. The President is unconvinced that the militia system has proven a fail ure. He seems to look upon univer sal military training as at best a nec essary evil to be considered seriously only «fter every form of voluntary service has been tried and found in-j effective. If we are right in this interpreta tion of the. President's state of mind, I we differ from him absolutely. Ac cording to our conception, universal military training is not an evil, either necessary or unnecessary. On the contrary, we believe that al together apart from any conisderation of national defense, universal mil'tary training would justify itself jui :e:l solely in relation to its physical, men tal and moral effect upon the men of the nation. We are as sure as it is ssfe to be about anything in these uncertain times, that universal military training would prove so popular among all classes of people that a few years af ter its inauguration no statesman who valued his political future would dare oppose it. If you are in favor of universal mil itary traUiing why not send a letter or a post card, or possibly a telegram, to the President or the secretary of war, or your congressman, if you know who he is, telling him so? You may be sure that the peace- at any-pricers the people whose chief regret is that the American has only two cheeks, are not modest about im pressing their sentiments on official Washington. Japan has taken Hawaii. That is, the hula-hula craze is falling away be fore the influx of geisba dancers. OF OPPOSE BILL General Manager Rapelje of Northern Pacific Considers Himself in Good Standing COMMITTEE IS IN SESSION MANY HOURS Objection to Full Crew Measure Set Forth by All Sides to Controversy .1. M. Kapelje, general manager of the Northern Pacific, began braking 38 years ago, and lias been in active service ever s-irice. Thirty-five years ago lie joined the Order of itailv/ay Conductors. Twen ty-niue years ago ne entered the ser vice of the Northern Pacific on the (Jlendive dhision. He was the first general chairman of the O. R. C. l'or the Northern Pacific system he was chief conductor on his division for no one knows how long he was made permanent member of the grand di vision, a post, that can bo gained only by being elected1 least four consecu tive times delegate.,, to the grand di vision. Eight years ago this month the Glendive division made him a life member and presnted him with a sol id card, which is one of his proudest possessions. "If I thought," said Mr. Rapelje, at the senate railway committee hearing on the full crew bill last night, "that there was one iota of merit in this bill, I would not want to go back to these men, knowing that I had op posed the bill. We have no war with our trainmen we recognize our duty to these men, and to the company and to men, many now dead, who put their money into the company and who died, many of them, safe in the conviction that their investment al ways would be sound. "Do you suppose for one minute, if we thought this bill would save the life of a single man in our employ that we would be against it?" The Northern Pacfiic and Mr. Rap elje are against the full crew bill, be cause they do not believe, they say, that it will do what is claimed for it, nor that it is needed. So, too, is the Great Northern, and the Soo line, which Superintendent Scott Derrick noted at the hearing last night was not represented there by one of its conductors 6r trainmen, for the rea son that differences are settled be tween the men and their company, withftnt outside interference. The hearing was attended by re presentatives of all railroad compan ies operating in North Dakota and by delegates from a number of state lodges or the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen and the Order of Railway Conductors. An unusual degree of in terest was shown, and the committee room was crowded. General Superintendent Bowen spoke for the Great Northern, assert ing that a flagman was of no use from the standpoint of safety on the rear end of any freight train. "I can't conceive." said the Great Northern man, "of any argument which can convince you that there is any safety in a third man on a through freight." Representatives of the brother hoods urged the necessity of a third man in handling trains of 50 cars or over. The hearing continued until mid night, and the committee adjourned without arriving at a report. Railroad employes are represented by S. E. Lush of Minneapolis and R. W. Viers of Minot. state legislative representatives of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, and W. A. Lyon of Grand Forks and G. H. Flynn of Dickinson, local representatives of the Brotherhood of Railway Train men, and J. E. Hjortland of Grand Forks and C. F. Woodward of Dickin son, representing the Order of Rail way Conductors. Railway officials here for the hear ing are J. M. Rapelje, general manag er of the Northern Pacific Scott W. Derrick, superintendent of the Soo Line Henry Blakesley, traffic manag er of the Northern Pacific H. H. Jones, general freight agent of the Great Northern L. D. Bowen, general superintendent of the Great Northern, and Chief Engineer Yager of the Nor thern Pacific. The full crew bill is only one of a dozen measures which occupied all of last night and the entire morning, and the hearing was not completed when adjournment was taken at noon to day. "CIVIC CREED."

(2—9, 16, 23) Ettestad Regards Bill Defining Vagrancy by Senate To6 Stringent ADMINISTRATION ACT COMPENSATES WORKMEN Measure Which Has Approval of Governor Frazier Passes Lower House "I have been as near a hobo as most of the members of this senate," said Senator Ettestad of Mclienry, in opposing the passage of senate bill 295, defining vagrancy. "When I came to Fargo 20 years ago, I might have beeij classcd as a vagrant, un der tliis bill. I knew no one, had no place to go, no place to sleep. It might have been difficult for nie to wire home and find somebody to iden tify nie. I think this bill will work a hardship on many honest, industrious men." Senator Cahill opposed the bill on the grounds that it would discriminate against harvest hands. One of the provisions regards as a vagrant any person found sleeping out of doors, "who cannot give a good account ol' himself." The member from Grant pointed out that in many of the small er towns there are not sutlicient hotel accommodations for the hordes of har vest-workers who corne in in the fall, and that many are compelled to sleep where they can. Hamilton shared the objections of league conferes to the bill. It was shown, however, that the clause to which the greatest opposition was made, tliaf relating to sleeping in the open, is contained in the present law, which this bill merely amends. On final passage the bill carried. 29 to IS. The senate also passed, over league opposition, a bill increasing the sal aries of supreme court, judges here after elected or appointed to "00, and .providing that judges now serv Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin Gave Sat-1 isfaction When Nothing Else Would. 1 Nearly every one, at one time or another, suffers from constipation, or inactive bowels, and one of the few conclusions upon which the doctors agree is that regularity of the bowels is nn essential to good health. In the family medicine chest of most well-ordered households will be found one or more of the various remedies recommended for the relief of'constipation. In the majority of homes today the combination of sim ple laxative herbs with pepsin known as Dr. Caldwell's Syrup i'epsin is rec ognized as the standard laxative. Druggists everywhere report a con stantly increasing demand Tor this splendid remedy, which is sold for fifty cents a bottle. Mr. James Ash, 102 Green St., Cum berland, Md., wrote to Dr. Caldwell that he found Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin the most effective remedy for constipation he had ever used and that he always keeps a bottle of it on hand for use when necessary. Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a mild laxative, and does not gripe or strain, but acts gently and brings re lief in an easy, natural manner. Its freedom from opiates or narcotic fry |B«Mi «i am v. ing shall receive $500 per annum for expenses. The bill requiring divorced persons when applying for a marnage license to file with the county judge a copy of the divorce decree also got by the senate with room to spare, aa did a bill limiting the number of de puties which may be employed by the state examiner and reducing the rees for examinations to an amount sim ply sufficient to pay the expenses of the department. Senator Lindstrom's bill legalizing the operation of Bathing beacheB, pleasure resorts and boats on Sun days passed with little opposition. In the house Dr. Ladd's much abused pure medicine bill was re called on motion of Bowman of Kulm, and by a big majority the rules were suspended and it was placed on its third reading and final passage. Representative Harding's motion that the congressional reapiJoi-tio|n nient bill which was introduced in his name be withdrawn carried. Harding stated that the bill was "handed" to iiini and that he did not become fam iliar with the purpose of the measure uptil after it had been introduced. The administration's compensation act, exempting from its provisions farm and railroad labor, passed the house bv a big majority. This bill would place in effect in North Dakota the Washington statute, which gives the state a monopoly of the compen sation fund, which is maintained through contribution from employers. Specific indemnities are provided for disability or death resulting from in dustrial injuries. The house bill increasing the maxi mum amount which may be invested by the state board of university and school lands in farm loans from $5,000 to $10,000 passed, as did house bill 180, locating at Garrison the second hospital for the insane approved by the voters at the last general election. The administration's "one-man" board of control bill went through the house with bells on, and J. F. T. O'Connor's uniform sales laws bill had easy sailing.
