Now that the hano. cf the luiminiiiratioii have been forced in t'-o matter there should be little delay in planting the requested nuthonty. It J a question if the p, sidonl. has not already sufficient authority to do so as a war necessity, but it is better to make it specific. "St. Louis Star.

Senator Wilfler has Issued a long statement In defense of his action to timing a German propaganda telegram to President Wilson. It Is not so much a defense of that unfortunate act as an effort to show that Ms general stand for Americanism has been so strong that It ought to palliate this on lapse, lint It does not palliate. Where 100 per cent Americanism Is demands! no person who at any time lent the use of his name and influence to the Ger man campaign t keep the. United States out of the War and thus make a victory for German autocracy certain, can truly represent the people of Missouri In the United States Senate. . . Senator Wil!Vy has much to say about what hn. "would have done'1 had he been In the Bonnie at various times. They aro all excellent things to have done. Probably now. In the llrM of what has happened the past year and his awakened intelligence of ti-o absolute need cf the United Statos going Into the war he tried to keep u. out of. ho "would do" those things, but that does not prove thai then ha "would have done" them.

Excel In Dirigibles Also. Not only In heavier than nlr ma chines, but In the dirigible lighter than air type has Italy excelled. The For lannl dirigible has a record of lifting four ton of bomhs 18,373 feet as against the best Zeppelin record of 13,123 feet with a similar load. As a submarine chaser, her non-rigid type of dirigible has been very effective.
