This bill prov'des for the permanent commissioning of 550 r"IEK latest achievement of Senator Pittman in having the Dunn C I j highway hill divorced from the postoffic appropriation bill which carries the appropriation for federal road aid, would have been considered surprising had tTnother senator done the same thing, but Nevada has come to expect the big things from Pitt man, and so far he has not failed. In the face of the Republican majority in the upper house and the .uipport given by eastern senators to the Dunn bill, which would have limited the amount of federal funds to be spent on any government aid road in a year, Pittman had the joint Dunn-postoffiee bill or dered referred back to a senate conference committee which reported it with the understanding that the senate would insist upon a high way appropriation without the attachment of the Dunn bill or any other limitations. Only as late as last Saturday, Senator Oddie was pictured as "carefully laying his plans to meet the opposition at every point." Yet, when action is required, it is Pittman who is found on the floor of the senate fighting .successfully to save Neva' da and the West from the lo.ss of hundreds of thousands of dollars of federal aid for road building programs. Congressman Arentz was not strong enough in the house to pre vent the passage of the Dunn bill originally, and from a distance it appears that the efforts of Arentz and Oddie consisted in assuring the voters of the state that they were closely watching the bill. Pittman may chalk tip another victory for himself and for the state he represents. His action Saturday demonstrates that he is looking out for the welfare of the state as well as for the country, as he did when he insisted upon his amendment to the four-power treaty. One wonders if he'is not the best congressional representative Xe . vada and the West' ever had. it providing for an army of 140,000 i officers now holding temporary commis- men with an av erase officer strength of approximately 12,530. This bill pro poses an increase of 25.000 in the en listed personnel and 1500 in 'officers over and above the number authorized by the house provisions. It now goes to the full senate appro priations committee where it will 1e undoubtedly acted upon favorably and then to the calendar of the senate.

U. S. Veterans' Bureau The regular army has lately developed a great interest in ex -service men. There are employed today in the United States veterans' bureau four lieutenant- colones, one major of the regular army, two lieutenant-commanders of the navy and four retired officers of the army.

It is, therefore, amusing to hear Republican leaders charge that their Democratic colleagues are delay ing consideration of the pending biil, after only a few weeks' debate. Tnder the rules of the senate, numerous other matters have been discussed siiH-e the tariff bill was taken up. When Senator Mc('um- ber complain d that the time of the senate ought not to be wasted in discussing matters winch have no bearing on the question at issue, Senator Underwood, the Democratic leader of the senate, agreed with him, but administered this friendly and neat rebuke: "I hope that extraneous matter will not come before the senate in the future, but most of the extraneous matter which comcp before it has originated on the other side of the chamber. I am glad to help the senator from North Dakota to keep the tariff bill before the senate without interrupion until it is disposed of, but he must clean his own .side of the carpet and we will try to help him on this Ride." ly favorably reported the bill with clarifying amendments which w 11 make '.he regular army might retain their commissions.

With general improvement in business e.onditions throughout the country the railroads should not suffer as a result of the reduction; and it is not improbable that the carriers will more than offset the reduction by increased volume of business. This ten per cent re duction may lead to further reductions, and voluntarily ho on the part of the: roads, because once the wheels of progress arc in full swing, prosperity will have gained an impetus that will cause it to extend over a long period, and with an intensity that has not exsted for many years. The Nevada public service commission has been doing its share in bombarding the interstate commission wth data to show that the big-line rates in this state are excessively high and the order recently issued vindicates the local body in refusing some time ago to raise intrastate rates to conform to interstate rates.
