"It is proposed by the Joint resolt

go into a comprehensive study of tho

Certainty, Safety and Sufficiency.
MJr. Thoin contended that the real In
terest of the public is in being assured
of certainty, safety and sutllciency of
transportation facilities, rather than in
rates. The first consideration of the
public Is to obtain transportation facill.
ties. What the cost is, is in reality a
second consideration, he said.
Mr. Thom proposed an increase of
transportation facilities as a method
of securing relief froan the high cost
of living. "There have been les, than
1,000 miles of new railroad constrtuct
ed in the United States dulring the past
year," he said, "less thatinI any year
since 1818, except the p eriod of the

AdIniral Sir Henry 1D. .ackson. the
present fir-st sea lord, has len a i
pointed president of the royal nava!
college at Greenwich.
The announcenieti. of the change in
command of the hlritislh grand fleet
was made this afternoon in the house
of lords by A. J1. lialfour, first lord of
the admiralty. Mr. iBalfour said there
would be consequental changes also in
the board of the admiralty.
On being asked whether the changes
in the admiralty meant other changes
in higher commands, \lr. Ial four r'e
plied that undoubtedly there would be
changes which would be announced in
the ordinary course.
The vital changes in the manage
ment of the navy announced today wit
be greeted enthusiastically by the
country. They were not unexpected
as recently there has been a demand
for an infusion of new life on the
board of sea lords at Whitehall. The
case as presented by the critics was
that none of the sea lords had had
active service afloat during this war.
that more than two years of warfare
had brought about radlical changes in
methods and that the active direction
of the fleets by the admiralty should
be in the hands of otlicers who had
participated in and worked out the
latest styles of operations.
Since the government apparently
recognized the force of these criticisms
Admiral .ellicoe's appointment as first
sea lord is the logical result.
Mr. David Deatty's promotion to the
command of the grand fleet gives the
government's answer to criticisms,
mostly from afroad, that he showed
rashness in the way lie threw his bat
tlecruiser squadrons into Jutland fight.

Thus four important flgures former
ly in control of the navy have passed
from Whitehall since the war began.
Tilese are Prince Loutis of flat tenbu rg,
