Washington Letter
By Edward Keating
(l 'ongressimm from the third Colorado
District.
The resignation of Secretary of
War Garreson has served to clear
the political atmosphere in Wash
ington , and the Committees of
the House and Senate will soon
snbmit thier ideas concerning "
National Defense.” Strange as it
may seem, men of all parties
agree that the depature of the
late Secretary of war has streng
thened the President's hands.
Mr, Garrison did not get along
well with Congress, At the very
begihning of t.his session he ap
peared bef(JK* the House Military

Affairs Committee and frankly,
proclaimed his belief in universal
compulsory military service, He
was followed by many of his
closest advisors in the War De
partment and almost without
exception they took the same
position. Then it developed that
he was opposed to, or at least
lukewarm toward, government
ownership of munitions factories,
COMPULSORY SERVICE
IMPOSSIBLE.
To say that the average mem
ber of Congress was shocked by
the Secretary’s expression of
views is putting it rather mildly.
Congress is not prepared to se
riously consider universal com
pulsory military service. Such -

I’jjniti)! oi'd n>t command
twenty votes in the Hou'-e and it
would receive mighty few in the
Senate.
I do not wish to he understood
as saying that Mr. Garrison advo
cated the adoption of such a pro
gram at this time, but he made
it pretty clear that that was his
ideal, and that it might be press
ed if his Continental army plan
failed.
The immediate result of the
Secretary’s declaration was to
create an impassable gulf be
tween the War D partment and
Congress. The Secretary was re
garded as a militarist, who, it' 1m
had a chance, would turn the
country injo an armed camp.
The President’s enemies took ad
vantage of the opportunity to
arouse feeling against the chief
executive. It was contended that
the Secretary of War was the
"President's spokesman and that
Wilson endorsed all the views so
frankly put forth by Garrison
WILSON’ REFUSES TO
DICTATE
Then came the Secretary’s res
ignation and the publication of
the correspondence between Mr,
Garrison and his chief. I think
those who have read these letters
will a ree that the President
handled himself in masterly style
He refused to assume the ro!e|
of dictator and announced his ■
determination to confer with, not ;
to coerce, congress.
The attitude of congress under;
went an immediate change. The
House Committee on Military
Affiars adopted resolutions
thanking the President and set
tled down to earnest work on the
military bill, and the Senate'
Committee on Military Affairs
followed suite.
Enough has developed to justify ,
one in hazarding a guess as to the
kind of .“preparedness” program
that will be presented to the
House.
The standing army will be in
creased to 135,000 or 140,000 man
That will be an increase of about
thirty per cent. Provisions will
be made for a very large increase
in the number of officers. The!
state militia will be strengthened :
in every way. Officers and men
will be paid a stated amount for
each drill, the equipment and
[ discipline vvill be brought to the
I regular army standards and in
I that way it is hoped to provide
j an efficientfighting force of from
1 250,000 to 400,000 men.
CONTINENTAL ARMY
ABANDONED
The Continental army scheme
will be abandoned and, of course
compulsory military service will
not be considered.
It has been suggested that un
der the new regulations the mili
tia should be relieved of “strike
duty.” This suggestion comes
from prominent National Guard
officers all over (he country.
Three or four officers of the Colo
rapo Guard have written me in
support of the proposition.
They argue that so long as the
Guard is used in industrial con
flicts members of organized labor
will refuse to join and thejnatlon
will be deprived of their services
There will be a marked increase
in the navy such an increase
as will settle for all time its
right to claim second place among
the navies of the world.
RAISING NEW REVENUE.
The increased revenue requir
ed to finance these plans will be
raised by an increase in the in
come lax. a tax on munitions of
war and possibly an inheritance
tax. All the stamp taxes levied
b* the emergency war revenue
bill, passed a year ago and re
enacted last December, will be
repealed. That was one of the
unpopular bills ever imposed by
Congress and no one will lament
its demise.
The one feature of the propos- j
ed revenue legislation which I do
not like is the repeal of the free
sugar schedule of the Underwood
tariff bill. This means the reten
tion of a tax of one cent a pound
0!i sugar. Readers of these let
ters are familiar with my views
on this phase of the tariff ques
tion.
The fact is that a tariff of a
cent a pound on sugar will com
pel the consumers of the nation
to pay SBO,OOO,CCO a year* more
for their sugar than they would
pay if tariff were repealed. Only
half that sum will go into the
United States treasury. The
ether half will go to the sugar
interests which are already pay
ing enormous dividends on wat
ered fftccks, I had hoped the
Democratic Party would never
countenance that sort of thing.
I believe we will win the fight
to take the profit out of war.”
There is a tremendous sentiment
in both Houses in favor of the
government manufacturing its
own armor plate, powder and
munitions. Steps are being tak
en to organize that sentiment in
both Houses and from present
indications it will be registered
| in no uncertain fashion.

I wish to make a statement as
I see thing's.
I have watched the work of Dr.
Homer for four years. He has
clone things out of the ordinary
for this part of the country.
On Fed. 23rd John Saigeon
was taken with acute appendici
tis. We brought him to my
house Fed. 24th and Dr. Homer
operated on him that afternoon,
with Dr.Hadsell of Kit Carson, to
give the anaesthetic and my wife
held a few instruments, that was
the only assistance he had.
The appendix was inflamed and
partly gangrenous. My wife and
I have had the care of him since.
He has not had one bad symp
tom and is now, March Ist. sit
ting up and wants to put on his
clothes and go about his work.
I deem it only just to Dr.
Homer and the people here than
all should know that the Doctor
can do such work, for there has
been too many people taken to
Denver to have such work done;
and been in a serious condition
when they arrived there,' and
some did not arrive there alive.
The Doctor does his work
neatly, quickly and uses rare
judgment as to conditions aris
ing.
The Doctor has done consider
able operating during his stay
here and every one has been a
perfect success.
