The New York World cried out against Congress as being "dofficient in brains because of the delay in passing the conscription bill." The World is disingenuous, however,' in failing to point out that the delay was caused most largely by the op position of Democrats to the bill which their President advocated and which the Speaker tried to kill. When Congress convened there was no one more vociferous than the New York World in demanding that the Demo crats must organize the House so that legislation could proceed along lines which a Democratic President would lay down. The Democrats did sue ceed in organizing the House,' and the New York World exulted. Now it de cnes congress lor us oenciency in brains, when the fault is not at all with Congress as a whole but only with that part of Congress which shares the Democratic politics of the New York World.

Hitherto he has had his way about.it. Now, however, a different spirit should pre vail in the raising of revenue. Money for the war is hot" to be spent down Sooth, nor to provide comfortable berths for deserving Democrats. It is to be spent in equipping the nation to fight and in maintaining our fight ing forces in; the eld. This is a na tional problem, not h sectional or par tisan one. went over until Wednesday.
