Washington, Nov. 28 Militant members of Congress, who have pro claimed their intention to advocate the strengthening of the armed forces of the United States, apparently have been proceeding on the theory that the Gevernment has overlooked the mat ter.) It that is the case, it is more than probable that these gentlemen, who are wasting midnight electrfc lights and the ribbons on their typewriters preparing resolutions providing for an increase in the , array and navy, are certain to be disillusionized. There is good reason to justify the statement that the! officials of the Gov ernment intrusted with the duty of protecting the country from foreign invasion, and to assume the offensive if necessary, have under consideration plana . that will obviate the necessity for legislative undertakings ii this line, other than to facilitate the con- summation of those of the Govern ment. The general staff and war college have been at work for more than two months working out the details of a system that probably will be recom mended by the Secretary of War in his annual report, and presumably with the sanction of the President. There has not, of course, been any public announcement made regarding the reorganization of the land forces of the country. On the contrary, the utmost reticence is manfested. From what can be learned, however, it is probable .that any steps looking to the better protection of the country do not contemplate any increase in the regular army, but will be more direct ly devoted to the enlargement of the militia forces of the states. The near est basis for this reorganization reach ed by the experts contemplates the creation of a volunteer reservist force to bring the 48 State Militia forces, to 500,000 men, who can be ready for, ac tive military duty within three weeks. - The regular army at . present con sists of 4572 officers and 88,444 en listed men. The authorized full strength of the regular' land forces cm a war basis is 4728 officers and 96,977. JThe latest returns to the War De partment from the Adjutants-General of 48 states show the strength of the state militia forces to be 128,043 men. The reports, however, indicate that there are only 93,277 men actually available for duty in the state militia forces. The increase, therefore, con templated by the plans under consid eration for the development of the state militia forces, is about five times that of the number available today. The conditions of the land defensive army of the national forces in the United States is something approxim ating that of British Government at the beginning of the European war. It is frankly admitted by officers who have nominal supervision over the citizen soldiers of the United States that, with the exception of New York, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Pennsylva nia and Michigan, the militia forces of the country are at a lower standard of efficiency than the organization of the territorials of England, whose du ties are about the same as those of the state militia organizations in this country. It is the purpose of the Government to invite the co-operation of the stater in an effort to encourage a greater de gree of interest, in. the development and efficiency of this branch of nation al defense. It is the belief of the officials of the Government that a patriotic appeal to the young men of the coluntry to vol unteer for training in the army will enlist the co-operation of men in all walks of life. ' One of the details of the new plan contemplates the establishment of t permanent training camp in each state during a period of from four to si. months every year. These are to be run on a uniform schedule of training to conform to' the methods of the reg ular army. POPULAR CAPE COUPLE WED Fred J. Mack and Miss Ella May Nichols Married by Mayor. Fred J. Macke and Miss Ella May Nichols, a popular young couple of this city, were quietly married by Mayor F. A. Kage at his office yester day afternoon at 4:30 o'clock. The marriage is the culmination of a courtship that originated five years ago while the parties were still at tending the public school in this city. Mr. Macke -is employed as a clerk for the wholesale firm of Meyer & Al bert, and is the . son of Mrs. John Macke of this city. The bride has lived in the Cape all of her life, and is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Nichols, whose home is at 115 South Pacific street RIVER CONGRESS TO MEET IN CAPITOL Conference on Waterways Will be Most Important Ever Held in U. S. Washington, Nov. 28 If piesent promises are fulfilled, the eleventh an nual convention of the National Kivers and Harbors Congress, which will meet in this city on December 9, 0 and 11, will be the largest that ever has been held by that organization. Arrangements are being made for four or five special trains, which are ex pected to bring from 100 to 200 dele gates each, who not only will attend the convention, but will call upon tne committees of Congress, and their Senators and Representatives, to urge the improvement of waterways in which they are interested. ' And, in view of the attacks which were made on the last rivers and har bors bill, which resulted in th-3 ap propriation of a lump sum of $20,- 000,000 instead of an amount exceed ing $53,000,000, the coming conven tion promises to be the liveliest, as well as the largest, in the history of the organization. While the program i3 not by any means completed, it is already evident that, in the interest and importance of the addresses made, the eleventh convention will, to say the least, not suffer in comparison with those that have gone before. President Wilson has been invited to make tlw opening address, and it is hoped that he may be able to be present. Definite ac ceptance has been received from the Chinese Minister, Mr. Kai Fu Shah, who will tell of the waterways of his country at once the oldest of na tions and the youngest of republics which have been in constant use for thousands of years. Acceptances have also been received from Senators Weeks, of Massachusetts; Simmons, of North Carolina, and William Alden Smith, of Michigan; from Speaker Champ Clark, and from former Gov. Charles S. Deneen, of Illinois. For mer Mayor Magee, of Pittsburgh, will speak on the need of Lake Erie and Ohio River Ship Canal. John H. Barn hard, of New Orleans, the builder of a new type of self-propelled barges, will talk of "Our Unused Waterways," Irving C Norwood, a former Wash ington newspaper correspondent, now secretary ff the Greater Davenport j (Iowa) committee, will give an illus trated lecture on "Water Terminals." One feature, which promises to be of the greatest interest, will be a series of addresses on some of. the projects which were most violently at tacked during the consideration of the Rivers and Harbor Bill. Senator Saulsbury, of Delaware, will speak on "The Chesapeake and Delaware Cana;" Senator Fletcher, of Florida, on "The Trinity River," and Repre sentative Baker, of California, on "The Sacramento and Feather Ris ers." Following each of these addresses opportunity will be given for free dis cucsion. Another feature of interest will be an address by Representative J. Hampton Moore, president of the Atlantic Deeper Waterways Associa tion, on "The Pork Barrel." SHOE FACTORY TO OPEN Will Be Using Full Force Again By End of Week.
