Almost universal sentiment seems
to endorse the action of the house
anilitary affairs committee in sus
{lending the consideration of the ad
ministration's permanent army bill.
The bill as drafted and presented by
the secretary of war and the chief of
«taff, provided for a permanent army
of 509,809, to be raised by the volun
tary enlistment system on a flat three
year basis. In addition the bill pro
vides for a absolute control by the
chief of staff, over all branches of)
the army, which power was given
ARMY BILL CAN WAIT.
only as a war time necessity.
No mention made of the
lective service system and no reconir
mendation for universal military
training. Both of these points are
worthy of careful consideration and
submission to the people of the coun
try before a permanent army bill is
submitted.
To attempt to rush
through such a bill during the present
session of congress would undoubted
ly prove disastrous. It has been point
ed out that Germany, in her best days,
did not have a force as large as the
one recommended by the cecretary of
war. Then too, the results of the
peace conference should have much
weight on the subject. If the elusive
Will o' the Wisp, the League of Na
tions, come into its own, then it is a
question whether such a large stand
ing army will be necessary.
The secretaray of war seems to be
unwilling to make any recommenda
tions regarding universal military j
training. When Representative San- |
ford tried to determine Gen. March's j
views on the subject,the general said: I
j
I
j
"It is the duty of the general staff
to submit recommendations to the
secretary of war when they are called
for. If they do not get by the sec
retary, thty are stopped. The Secre
tary has told you that they are on
ll is desk." 1

I
the country without even taking into
consideration the two most vital ele
ments, universal military training and
the selective service system, seems
impossible. Even the bitterest oppo
sition would be inclined to give them
credit for a better power of insight.
As it stands, the proposal to put
a rider on the army appropriation
hill, carrying the pi-esent plan for
another year, seems to meet with
favor and will no doubt be put into
effect. By that time, conditions at
home and abroad will have under
gone great changes, and when a per
manent army bill is considered, there

Spokesman-Review under the caption |
of "Meanwhile the United States is !
Drifting," yesterday offered the fol- j
lowing in its editorial columns: D
.A fear arrows at Washington, and
it is shared by democratic senators j
and representatives, that President |
Wilson is trying to force upon our £
vv- „ , t y-, ,
allies an experimental European set- I
llement that is not compatible with j
their own judgment; that he is likely !
to assume the dangerous role of ! o

spondent puts it, there is growing dis
content in congress 'over that con
stant high note of idealism that
sounds the sea from France at the
time when the need of practical ac
I tion is apparent.'
I "The wisdom or the error of Presi
dent Wilson's personal appearance
at the peace conference will be de
termined by the ultimate results, but
the belief is held by many senators
and representatives that it would
have been better if the president had
sent to Paris an able delegation of
eminent Americans and himself re

some 15,000,000 men from the duties

senate Tuesday, the country is drift
ing without a reconstruction pro
and labor of war to the industries of
gram.
"Many Americans believe that
America can best serve the world in
this crisis by making herself strong
and efficient and, as Mr. Roosevelt
urged, by standing unequivocally
with our allies in the peace negotia
tions. Those allies have had to bear
the brunt of the war. They have
j statesmen of profound sagacity and
| loftiness of purpose, and their judg
! ment regarding the rehabilitation of
to establish some peculiar plan of
dealing with Mexico or Cuba."

LOAFERS PUT TO WORK.
After the Dunklin Couny (Mt>.)
Farm Bureau got after them last sum
mer 150 loafers went to work in the
I harvest fields. Three weeks before
the wheat harvest the county agent
j saw the necessity for extra labor and
I called a meeting of farmers and busi
j ness men, who formed an "Anti-Slack
j er Organization." Membership cost
50 cents, and the money was used for
publicity and expenses of officers in
rounding up the loafers. Through this
organization, also, 20 State prisoners
were secured for work in the harvest
fields. They did exceptionally good
work, it is reported, and every farm
er who used them wanted an arrange
ment with the State Prison Board for
their permanent services.

There was a time when members of
the cabinet thought they would like
to ] lave th e privilege of appearing up
on the floor of the two houses of con
igress to address the members upon
matters of legislation, but since it is
certain that this privilege would be
coupled with an obligation to answer
questions, there is not so much evi
dence of desire to appear, it would
be rather embarrassing to some mem
bers of the cabinet to be required to
angwer (luestions regarding their ste
wardship just at present.

TO GROSS ATLANTIC
Airplane Manufacturers Make
Long-Distance Machines.
Tempted by Big Prizes Offered by
Newspapers and Aviation
Clubs.
Paris.—Airplane manufacturers are
losing no time in developing long-dis
trunsatlantic
for
machines
tance
flights for which tempting prizes have
been offered by various newspapers
und aviation clubs.
The rumors persist in Paris that a
Handley-fage machine lias already
crossed the ocean, from Newfoundland
to Ireland, hut that the flight was
kept secret in order that the Germans
might not know that a machine had
been produced which could bomb Ber
lin. Tiie allies had secret informa
tion that the enemy felt perfectly se
cure about tiie inability of airplanes
to fly that far into the fatherland and
get back and had practically no anti
aircraft batteries posted to protect his
capital. It was realized that once it
became known a plane had crossed
the Atlantic the Boche would take the
tip anil strengthen his defenses at
Berlin.
Fnrman has constructed a quadru
ple motor biplane equipped with four
propellers and driven by engines gen
erating more than 1,000 horse-power,
which he believes can negotiate the
transatlantic flight. This machine will
have an average speed of 110 miles
an hour and cun carry gasoline and oil
for 30 hours. The body of the ma
chine extends the whole length of the
fuselage, from the nose to the tail
piece and the crew can walk up and
down through tiie passageway. Mul
tiple wheels make landings easier
and safer.
Blériot has also constructed a bi
inotor machine, with (wo tractor and
two pusher propellers,
lieves can fly 2,000 miles without a
slop. The Blériot machine is a bi
plane, -but the lower wings are much
smaller than the upper, along the
lines of the Nienport chasse model.
The Blériot plane is expected to main
tain a speed of 150 miles an hour for
24 hours.
Four Average Ninety-Two Years.
Bowdoinham, Me.-—Living together
in tliis town are Mrs. Eleanor Sparks,
aged one hundred years; her sister,
Mrs. Mary A. Green, aged ninety-eight
years; their brother, William K. Den
ham, eighty-five years, and bis wife,
aged eighty-five years.
Multiply in Transit.
Ellsworth, Me.—A local man sent a
pair of Belgian hares from N0w
Hampshire to his family here. When
the crate was opened at the Ellsworth
hamc there were 14 hares.

SAN JUAN, P. R.—Captain Gaétan
Lauro, of the schooner Eva B. Doug
las of New York, who rescued 252
survivors from the eight life boats
of the steamer Carolina when she
sunk by a submarine last June,
brought his schooner into San Juan
harbor this week on h ! s first visit
