SECRETARY REPLIESTO CRITICS Appears Before 8enate Military Com mlttee and Answers Charges That the Government Has Broken Down Preparing For War Instances of Inefficiency Cited by Chamberlain Isolated, Not General, Ho Says. Washington, Jan. 29. The United States will have an army of 500,000 men in Franco early -this year, with 1,000,000 more trained and equipped ready to follow as quickly as ships can be provided to carry them and the outlook for ships Is not unprom ising. So declared Secretary of War Baker in ills statement before the senate military committee. For hours the secretary addressed the committee and a crowd, including many members of both houses of con gress, gathered in a big hearing room of the senate office building. He spoke extemporaneously, beginning with details of the mammoth task of building an army of 1,500,(KX), answc: lng such complaints of inefficiency as were cited by Senator Chamberlain in his recent speech and declaring that such instances were Isolated and not general. Then, toward the end of the state ment, the secretary delivered a dram atic general statement of the Ameri can war plan, telling of the comin? of the allied missions, of the da and night conferences with men from the scene of battle, in which the plails now being executed were adopted, and of success beyond the most san guine expectations in building th living, uaueiivi LIUfi wcu .Ub ocean, constructing railroads in France and preparing to strike the enemy with every resource at the country's command. y When Mr. Baker closed, it was ap parent he had created a profound tin pression. Chairman Chamberlain said so before he left the stand. There was no attempt at cross-examination The secretary paid high tribute t army officers and civilian helpers of the war department alike for their "devoted, untiring efforts to rush war preparations. "When we have founj errors we immediately have sought the remedy," he said. He took up Senator Chamberlain's recent speeea in the senate to "show the instances of delay and neglect Chamberlain quoted were but Isolated cases in the midst of a tremendous amount of suc cessful work." Mr. Baker declared that laxity in the medical service at camps will not be tolerated. Three officers have been dismissed from the army because of negligence In attending sick. Referring to tae ordnance depart ment the secretary said General Per shing himself decided against the Lewis machine gun for land work He added that a great army was call ed out before guns were ready for It upon the earnest recommendation of Major General Leonard Wood. Wood declared that the men should netd other training beside that in the use i of guns, first. Every man in France has his own gun and was trained to use it. Official reports, based on careful investigation, Mr. Baker stated, show that camp hospitals in many cases are the equal of civilian hospitals and l all are in tpendid shapes Tonnage j is the crux of the whole situation and j this country is using French artillery to save ships for other supplies. Tho allies urged troops before anything else, saying France and England could supply us with artillery. DR. HARTMAN DEAD Aged Physician Made an Immense Fortune From "Peruna." Columbus, Jan. 31.

THE WEEKLY WAR REVIEW Germany and Austiisv-HuDgary made reply during the week to the peace terms of tho allies and the I'nlted States as recently enunciated by David Lloyd-George, ths British prime minister, and President Wil son. Chancellor Von Hertllnf, tht KlioUesman for Germany, was tti coiupromisingly hostile to major ity of the peace alms as put forward hy President Wilson, treating seri ously in his address those upon which Germany could not come into accord. Count Czernin, the Austrian for tln minister, was more moderate in his treatment of President Wil ton's Ideas, declaring the president's viewpoint expressed In his lavtcct ad dress to congress showed that there was less incompatibility between An tria-Hungary and the United 8ttes than had seemed to be the case. From the German standpoint, ac cording to Von Hertlinp, the reitera tion to France of Alsace-Lorraine is beyond the realm of discussion. Re garding Belgium, he declared that its lestoratlon could be settled only In peace negotiations, but that Germany never had demanded the Incorpora tion of Belgian territory "by Tlo lence." Likewise, methods of pro cedure in the evacuation of northern France must take account of Ger many's vital Interests and be agreed upon between Germany and France. The chancellor said the fate of Po land and the Balkans and the read justment of the Italian frontier lies with Austria, while the evacuation of Russian territory concerns only Rus sia and the central powers. Oer many, he added, considered that the Integrity of Turkey and the safetr of its capital were closely connected with the question of the Dardanelles, which was of vital interest to Ger many. Both Count Von Hertllng and Count Czernin thought it obvious that the exchange of peace views with thfl United States might form the start ing point for a conciliatory discussion among all the states which had not yet entered the peace negotiations. Hope was expressed by both repre sentatives of the central powers that the peace negotiations with Russia would prove successful. Officials at Washington declare that there Is not the slightest proba bility of a compliance By the United States and the allies with the final demand of the German chancellor for the submission of them of new pro posals for peace. The week on the western front waa featured by artilleiry duels, aerial combats and local raids.
