The big guns of the Germans have not been idle during the fighting, but their strength is in no wise compara ble to that of the great array of can aen that Haig has set up for the pur 1 of pounding the German's en tnndunents for warding off attacks md for screening his infantrymen as thsy surge forward on new exploits. As yet there has been no indication thst the British commander-in-chief bu the situation worked out to a point where he is prepared to turn hose his infantry for another smash ■cross No Man's Land.

The allotment to the Sixth Federal Reserve District, he points out, is between eighty million and one hun dred and thirty million dollars of bonds, and he expresses the opinion that the district will do its full share. Continuing, Chairman Wardlaw says in his statement: "The Liberty Loan Executive Com mittee now has organized and active ly at work approximately fifty zone Committees and four hundred county Committees, the Chairman of which are men of prominence and power in the respective Committees, before the end of this week we will have possi bly two thousand sub-committees, all alive and working through these com mittees and the invaluable support of the press, every man and woman and child in the District will be given the opportunity and privilege of perform ing a patriotic duty.

Third Contingent Of National Army Is Moving Today Even This Not Enoogh For Full Strenght After The is Filled Washington, Oct. 2.—The third contingent of the national army will begin moving tomorrow to the six teen cantonments, where approxi mately one-half of the 687,000 select ed men called out by the President already have been mobilized. Quotas now ready to leave home vary great ly, arranging from seventeen to 40 per cent of the full state quotas, with a general average of between twenty and twenty-five per cent. Modification of previous quota plans was necessary because of the conditions at the cantonments and the availibility of equipment. Some cantonments are much farther ad vanced than others, and can accomo date a larger percentage of men. Definite figures are still lacking as to the number of selected men to be transferred to the National Guard, Aviation Service, Medical Corps or other branches of the army that will have to be filled up to war strength. It is certain, however, that the men remaining at the camps will not be sufficient to form the sixteen nation al army divisions at full strength. Secretary Baker indicàted today that no decision had been reached as to when a second call will be made. There are many deficiencies to be fill ed up in the first draft, physical ex aminations of the selected men by army doctors at the camps having resulted in many rejections. There appears to be some evidence of un due leniency by the civilian doctors who examined the men in certain sec tions, probably due largely to the de | sire of local boards to make a good showing in prompt filling of their quotas. j per cent an almost unheard of rate on a United States Government I Bond." ; Two substantial subscriptions awaited the members of the Liberty Loan Committee when they arrived at j their offices in the Federal Reserve i Bank, Monday morning.

The Huge War Tax Bill Is Finally Passed By Both Houses More Than Two and a Half billion Dollars Of New Taxes Levied Washington, Ocf. 2.—Congress fin ished its work on the great war tax , bill late today, when the Senate, fol lowing the example set yesterday by the House, adopted the conference re port without a roll call. More than two and a half billion dollars of new taxes are levied by the measure, which has been in the making since last April. As soon as the bill is engrossed and signed tomorrow by Vice-President Marshall and Speaker Clark it will be sent to President Wilson, who is ex pected to sign it immediately. Senate discussion today was brief, participated in by but few members, all of whom realized the futility of opposition. Most of the criticism was upon the second-class postage in creases, ^< be S p eed y action on the confer ence report raised members' hopes for adjournment of the war session by Saturday, or not later than next week. The administration soldiers and sailors' insurance bill, which has passed the House will be brought up tomorrow in the Senate. Its disposal in a few days is anticipated. T,he on ly other measure the leaders expect to put through before adjournment is the eight-billion-dollar deficiency ap propriation bill, whose conferees ex pect to agree tomorrow and secure adoption of their report with per functory debate.
