I have given The Republican a small amount of advertising, but it did not increase my business, and I there fore confined my advertising to The Tribune alone. The Republican, therefore, attacked me in a criminal manner, and I have asked Mr. Blattner to say to the public that the charges made against me by The Republican were un true. His statement sets forth the facts. I did not advertise in The Republican before, and I will not be forced to use its colums by its blackmailing tactics. STANLEY N.

CHARLES BLATTNER Congress Now Has Ear To The Ground For Next Election By C. W. Gilbert, in Now York Tribune Washington, Dec. 1.

Tliose who do this best may be permit- ted to come next year and do it over again. This question of coming back nxt year overshadows everything else. Congress is a double personality.noisy, belligerent, rebellious, indviduab'stic, perhaps early in its existance, but gen t!e, disciplined, calculating when itfac-j es the neccessity of the re-election.

His eye search the walls for the proverbial arn. His voice ginks I ini.i a scarcely audible whisper. And ! he asks, "Don't you think it is Uo 'so"n?'' ! Congress is biding its time or likes to think it is. Many of its memb" idor.'t enjoy the back part ofthe stae'be there is a reluctance about Mi. i.,t they would rather say tha! 'ium ' not ;ret on the stage and so say nothitv at all. In other words, Congrosvvar i . i . , i i ; i i . : i u, .v-u,v,:is .ess it, if possible, than last year, and : .. 'V. Jt mivht a .most be said that crucial time with the Wilson adr.iinis - ciaicial time with the Wilson ndr.iinis- :t ration was getting the drafted atv-.y into the cantonments. Before that was accomprrnca men wT.ispere:t Aige; j and a "repetition of the Spanish War.", ; B'Jt the getting of the men into camp j v. as accomplished with only such con- sprang. No lives have been lost, no hospitals filled because of mistakes that have been made, The sufferings of the country from deficient sh;npm; are uot sufficiently proximate to have political consequences, at least imme- diate politcal conseoucnes. And be cause the Wlson administration has disappointed the prophets of evil, the President is stronger today than he was when Congress went home. And because Congress has its eye on the election next year, Congress itself is I of capacity for orgonization, his habit of dealing with individuals in thei personal rather than thpr representu--sen tive capacity. This trait of his ex- plains that there is no war machine in Washington today. There is Mr. Wi! son and Mr. Baker, Mr. Wilson and Mr. DanielB, Mr. Wilsoa and Mr. Hcrley, and no on, but there is no war organ iz atin. The same percularity works out, so far as Congress is conserned, into a positive genius for disorganization. i Congress is gathering. You ask yojr !se!f who among the Democrats will .- I the President's spokesman. And you find at once there s no Democrat or ganization in Congress, there is r.o one who represents the Administration on the floor of cither house. If ne.'

The Republicans seem to feel that something of the same sort is happen ing to them as a party as happened to Mr. iryan as an individual. I hey hit- terly w.ent the fact that though nV a party they have been as loyal to the war as the Democratic parly, and mi re iso. Mr. Wilson has contrived is so that I this is a "Democratic war." In 'ie coming session they recognize that get no credit for it.
