WHO'S WHO IN WASHINGTON
.Washington, May 4 (Special Cor
respondence.) Representative Oscar
E. Bland of Indiana, before his elec
tion to Congress, was prominent in
the legislature of his state in the
support of much legislation for the
benefit of the working classes, and
was the author of the 2-ccnt fare law
now in operation. By his whole
hearted endeavors for the welfare of
his people Mr. Bland has gradually
strengthened himself in his district
until, in his fourth attempt, he suc
ceeded in restoring to the Republican
column a communiy which has sent
a Democrat to the House for the last
eight years. Mi. Bland's previous
legislative experience and his ability
as a lawyer is sure to win a con
spicuous place for him in the Nation
al House.;
Every wearer of a Palm Beach suit
during the- summer will have occas
ion to thank Congressman Louis B.
Goodall of Maine for the comfort
which attends him. Mr. Goodall,
and his',. father before him, has en
gaged in the woolen cloth business in
Maine for many years, taking a lead
ing part in the organization of sev
eral mills in his vicinity, and the
Goodall "Worsted company, of which
he is treasurer, originated the Palm
Beach . cloth, which has been so ex
tensively adopted of late years. Mr.
Goodall 's business experience has
taughftoim he value of Protection,
and hjc, has for many years been a
member of the special committee on
the tariff of the National Associa
tion of Wool Manufacturers, and a
director in the Home Market Club
of Boston. "When the Republicans re
turn to' power in the House at the
next election Representative Goodall
is ure; to take a leading part in the
framing of tariff legislation along
sound protective lines.
which might be useful to the enemy
shall be punished, and then there was
a proviso that pretended to but did
not protect the freedom of the press.
As ono Senator pointed ou, if shells
furnished to our ships proved worth
less exploding in the guns, the
American press would not dare ex
pose the fraud because that would be
giving the enemy information regard
ing our weakness. Senator Borah
added the comment tHat it would be
better to have, , little publication
rather than have our soldiers go into
battle with defective shells. The
sweeping nature of the bill was em
phasized by Senator Cummins, who
said that it applied to individuals as
well as to newspapers.
Assistant Secretary of Agriculture
Vrooman has urged the South to
abandon some other crops in favor of
foodstuffs. The total area planted to
tobacco is about 1,400,000 acres,
which if planted to corn, would pro
duce 35,000,000 bushels. Many farm
ers in Oregon are plowing up their
hop fields and planting beans.
Democrats in the House of Repre
sentatives want to thrust uuon the
President the solo responsibility of
establishing the system of selective
conscription. They argue that if it
proves unpopular Wilson alone will
have to take the blame and that if it
proves a success they can claim part
of the credit on the ground that Wil
son is of their party. In other words
they want to pass the buck.
In one sense they are excusable for
this; because Wilson himself for
four years has habituated them to
the practice. He has evaded more
problems than any other man in pub
lic life in a like time. He has side
stepped more vital issues, he has
switched his opinions more often, he
has reversed himself more frequently
and more violently than any other
President we have ever had. Now
his House of Representatives seeks
to prescribe for him a dose of his
own medicine.
In the opinion of Representative
Charles II. Sloan of Nebraska, the
House made a grave mistake in not
limiting the term of the bond. issue
recently authorized, instead of pro
viding that such conditions shall be
"as thic Secretary of the Treasury
shall prescribe." While other na
tions have never repudiated their
debts, so far as he is aware, Mr.
Sloan contends that loans from one
nation to another have never before
been made on such a stupendous
scale as is now contemplated, and
that it might almost be worth a rev
olution and change of government in
a country in order to repudiate a na
tional aebt of a billion dollars. Con
gressman Sloan embodied his ideas in
an amendment providing for a 20
year limitation on three billion dol
lars of the bonds, but his proposition
was voted down by the House.
Going to the Capitol to press the
bill for selective conscription, the
President also let it be known that
ho wants no joint committee on the
conduct of the war such as Senator
Weeks and Representative Madden
have proposed. Yet . it will have to
come if the war is much .prolonged.
Far better to accept it now as a meas
ure designed to secure' co-operation
than to have it thrust upon him later
as a measure designed to uncover the
incompetency of those whom Mr.
Wilson evidently intends to retain in
authority in spite of their shortcom
ings.
During the debate on the bond bill,
a few days ago, Senator Frank B.
Kellogg,' of Minnesota, gave an inter
esting sidelight on the European war.
He said that he was in Europe when
the war broke out and had a more
or less intimate acquaintance in Ger
many and in the other countries now
at war." I found among the people
of Germany and the people of France
no hatred of each other," said Sen
ator Kellogg, "and they could not
understand why they were plunged
into the horrors of war." He gave
it as his own opinion that this is "the
old, struggle between autocracy and
democracy."
The people of this country should
not overlook the fact that they arc
indebted to Republicans for the pro
test made in the Senate against that
provision of the so-called spy bill
which would have destroyed freedom
of the press and of speech. Senators
Lodge of Massachusetts, Cummins of
Iowa, Borah of Idaho, Johnson of
California,; Brandegce of Connecticut
led the opposition to one of the most
drastic measures ever proposed for
the purpose of giving government of
ficials autocratic power. The bill
provided that whoever in timo of war
in violation of regulations prescribed
by the President shall publish any
information with respect to war ma
terials, plans or supposed plans, or
gublio defense - calculated to bo or
