The measure came to that iHsly from the House hardly a week ts*fore the constitution il day f.the adjournment of the session mid the Senate Committee did not disuse of it until lute In tht week prior to the adjournment of Con gress on Tuesday, March 4th. It Is true that In the crowded closing hours of tlie'session, Senator Cnltraher lulu nuked unanimous consent to vote ii I s mi the bill lit a fixed hour, though lie well knew stteh consent could not In- obtained, and that the hour fixed would not permit of even reading the bill in o|sm session. The cause of the failure of th() army |,m dearly rests in the dilatory in efficiency of tile Democratic in ijorlty j,, | b( , uhleh drafted the army measure inadequate fur any of the military ih*h1fi of tlie nation, either iloniestle or foreign. That: water, however, lias already (lowed down the I'otomae, and tlie question now is whether 450,000 homes in this country will rest silent while their boys arc continued for ail Inde llnite iieriod in overseas service and while President. Wilson remains in Enrolle and obstinately refuses to con vene Congress for the consideration of this necessary measure because he Is unwilling that in the course of con gressional dehnte there should tie any incldentlal criticism of Ids pr L hisciI covenant for a league of Nations.
