"Furthermore, not only were mobilize Hon centers badly reconstructed follow ing hasty demobilization, but no plan of transport by rail had been definitely worked out. This is a circumstance which would have caused the greatest difficulties In case es sudden trouble. "fn a word, the French army at the beginning of'this year was not raobl llzable. DISMAYED at POH KRI.KSSNESS. “When 1 arrived at the ministry of war I was dismayed at the relative powerlessness In which we found our selves following the great >*elebration of peace. All my efforts immediately Were directed in tils sense Inward finding remedies. “Reorganization of the railway, of the telephone service and the resumption of normal manufacture of munitions espe cially attracted my attention. "Machinery was soon again in motion. <>n April 6, when German Impudence forced us to occupy five Rhineland cities, we were ready. It was at this time that the French army really again be came mobilized. Wc had now recuper ated all our possibilities of action. “Blrne then things have been getting better all the time."

Service men, the Governor suggested, might be repaid for their sacrifices by being permitted to share in lands of the West, hundreds of thousands of square miles of which, he said, could be J reclaimed with money saved on arma ment. A well-planned process of development of Alaska, he said, should go hand in hand with the reopening of our western gateways to commerce.
