three years of war. but a decision must
be sought on tho battlefield. It Is not

The AUgeraeine Zeitung of Essen
"President Wilson seems not to
know that the smallest appropriation
for tho army requires the sanction of
the reichstag, tbo most democratic
parliament in the world. Yet he, who.
unheeding tho spirit of tho American
constitution, has-erected a brutal mili

now presumes to talk about autocracy
In froo Germany."

LONDON, Jan. 11. Referring to tho
report that it is intended to drop a

address in Germany from airplanes,
the Daily Chronicle, while thinking the

man could read tho address it might
lead to a national strike against the
war, recalls Germany's recent "an
nouncement that pilots caught drop

spies. Accordingly the paper appeals
to inventors to produce a machine

Twenty degrees below zero tempera
ture which provailed when the flro was

How does It happen that a prohibi
tion community Is obliged to arrest
people for intoxication?"
"Well," said Uncle Bill Bottletop,
"It's another phase of the transporta-
Itlon problem. Every now and then
somebody who wants to carry homo

OBJECTIONS AREMADETO SOME
OF HE ORDERS ISSUED BY THE
DIRECTOR GENERAL OF ROADS
That confusion may not result from
tho industrial change occasioned by
the proclamation of President Wilson
placing American railroads under gov
ernment control and naming Secretary
McAdoo as director-general, exper
ienced railroad men are "intimating"
that it would be wise for tho director
general to remain absolutely within
tho lettor of law.
The suggestions arc mado with the
assurance that the railroads, as patrio
tic corporations and as individuals, are
eager to lend every possible co-operation.
Precedents and law, it is urged,
should govern In order to prevent lr
remedial confusion, at the close of the
war. The Traffic World, responsible
railroad publication, discusses the
proposition confronting Secretary Mc
Adoo with remarkablo candor and
"The language used by President
Wilson." says tao Trafnc World, "in
taking over the control of the rail
roads; tho insistence of Director-General
McAdoo that he supercede the In
terstate Commerce commission; his
order as to tho transporting of freight
by tho shortest route, regardless of
the shipper's legal right to instruct as
to routing; tho over-riding of demur
rage rules in order to roliove conges
tion in the east; together with all that
Is appearing int he public prints as to
what the director-general intends to do
or has the power to do, Indicate that
tho public Including Mr. McAdoo
himself and the president, whose agent
he is thinks the director-general has
' powers which we are not convinced he
has, and which wo do not believe he
can have without legislation specifical
ly conferring them. Thoso who appar
ently take the other view merely as
sert that these powers exist or com
placently tako them for granted, but
no ono, so far as we have noticed, has
ventured to say whence they are de
rived." Tho editorial takes the position "that
the presldont and tho director-general
can, generally speaking, do only the
things that It would have been per
fectly legal for the railroads them
selves to do before tho government
took over the railroads, and he can do
none of the things that wore illegal."
The director-general, according to
this logic, merely succeeds tho execu
tives of tho roads. Ho can do all the
things thoy legally could have done,
but can do none of the things thoy le
gally were barred from doing.
"For instance," tho Traffic World
continues, "the director-general may
abolish down-town ticket offices; he
may dismiss or hiro more mon; he
may Btop advertising for passenger
business when passenger business
ought to bo cut to the bone; ho may
mako one road a freight road and an-'
other a passenger road; he may use
passenger equipment for hauling
freight; he may pool facilities; ho
may decrease the salaries of railroad
presidents and increase tho wages of
BWltchmen; but without additional
legislation he may not violate tho
law prohibiting tho pooling of traffic
or earnings; ho may not increase, or
reduce freight or passenger rates. In
short, ho may do nothing in violation
of any law on the statute books with
out specific authority so to do. Tho
law must first be repealed or amend
ed. That Is the common -sense,
straight view to take and. though, it is
only a layman view, we believe It is
Tho editorial closes by declaring
that it does not desire to appear out
of sympathy with the government and
with what the government Is trying to
accomplish. It insists that it is in full
sympathy with the purposes of tho
president and believes bis action was
absolutely necessary. It also states
that many of the things which the gov
ernment is trying to do, although in
violation of the law, may be necessary
and if necessary should be done.
"Wo believe thoy should bo done by
changing tho law," the publication
concludes. "Instead of by ignoring it.
We are at war, to bo sure, and war
will accustom us to many things here
tofore strangers to us, but it seems to
us that we have not yet reached the
point where laws must be ignored or
violated certainly not until some ef
fort has been made to alter them to
fit our necessities."
It is probablo that this stand, taken
pretty generally by railroaders, result
ed in Secretary McAdoo's recent order
countermanding a former order stop
ping solicitation for business. The
question, between the railroaders and
the Secretary is whether the shipper
has the right to solect his own rout
ings, regardless of government owner
ship. It is admitted that government
shipments arc entitled and should have
precedence over all lines at all times,
but so far as individual shippers aro
concerned. It is argued, they aro en
titled to elect as to routings.

raisers, who are sincerely anxious to
jolp the nation-wide drive for a
greater production of eggs, already has $
been accepted. j:
A communication received today in- $
quires as to the most profitable breedj!?
of chickens. It does not state, how-!

of the non-setting or Mediterranean 0
variety, such as the Leghorns. If onefj
wishes to breed for meat only, it would 1
be wise to try one of the larger meat- jf I
producing breeds. Jf. 1
But if the prospective raiser wishes
to breed for both eggs and meat, one? 1
of tho American varieties will give the'';
best returns. Among the American
varieties, the most popular at the;

probably will stand more abuse by 4
