ONLY QUESTION OF TIME.

Chief of Staff of United States
Army Makes Sensation in
Washington.
1 Washington, Dec. 17.—Sensations
continue to multiply in reference to
the suppressed report of Secretary of
War Dickinson on tho weakness of
the nation's defensive power, but the
greatest developed when it was stated
in official circles that Maj. Gen. Leon
ard Wood, chief of staff of the
army, is convinced that a conflict
with Japan is only a matter of time.
It is understood that tiis belief was
tespi usible for the report which lias
raised such a stir in Washington.
A breach between the war depart
ment and congress was wider as a
result of charges made by Represent
ath'e J awney that a conspiracy ex
sts 0 o vate a nation wide sentiment
11 la’,or of a big appropriation for
i army and navy purposes. The state
nieiii ,,f Congressman Tawney is more
eigniii. ant because of the fact that
he is known to have the backing of
President Taft.

ng tho navy. Fifteen million
yen is appropriated for tne next fis
cal year. The minister says that the
conspicuous innovations adopted by
other powers in the types of their
warships has made it necessary for
Japan to somewhat increase its naval
expenditure, not because of any dan
ger arising from differences with oth
er countries, but because the navy
of Japan, while not endeavoring to
compete with or surpass those of
other nations, must be kept up to a
modern standard.

be working, they are safe. If they
tried to push their way out through
shaft Xo. 1 they are probably dead.

the shaft, where the air is very bad,”
