Borah Urges that
Congress Work Upon
Plans for Defense
WABHINOTON, March It. -Senator
Borah, republican, urged tha senate to
day to drop all other legislation and Im
mediately consider tha national prepared
ness plan In view of the conseouenoas
that might arise from th decision to
pursue Villa in Mexico. .
Chairman Chamberlain of tha mllltarr
committee told th senate that In his
opinion ths United States army did not
have enough soldiers ta cop with th
Mexican or enough eoulDment. Ma added
he would not be surprised to see all Mex
icans rally around Villa.
Senator Borah gave President Wilson's
determination to send troops across the
border to capture outlaw his full endorse
ment, but declared It would be th hela-nt
of folly for th congress not to press
preparations for war when no one could
tell what the present military action
might lead to. Alt Central America he
said was apprehensive over tha move
ment of American troops south of the
Rio Grande, no matter what tha motlv
may be. '
"Sparks of dissension are constantly
flying from Europe over this hsmlsnhera."
Senator Borah declared. "No man knows
on day what emergency ths country may
have ta face tha next Thla defense pro
gram cannot be shaped in a week. It
may take montha to formulate tha plans
for national defenea urged by tha presi
dent. "Judging from the nreaent rnn11Hnr.
of this legislation, one of two things
must he true. Either th president Is
sadly In error as to tha requirements
of th situation which confronts us .-r
congress is sadly in error In Its failure
to respond mors quickly to ths presi
dent's requests. '
"Certainly nothing can be less fortunats
at such a tlma as this as to say fjr

over this Important issue. I do not disap

War Diaarlment 4let.
While General Funston was proceeding
with the arrangements to pursue the ban
dits and end their activities once and for
all. the War department was unusually
'lulot today. Hcores of telegrams csme
from the border dealing with troop move
ments, supply lines snd other countless
detsils of military operation:, but no
word that the forces hsd gone into MV?x-l'-o.
The dispatches have not yet dis
closed an outline of Oeneral Funston's
plans nor even the fact, reported in press
dispatches from the border, that Brig
adier General Pershing had been assigned
to lead the chase.
The whole matter is In Genersl Fun
ston's hands. Hs is planning carefully
his moves on the huge chess-board of
northern Mexico, where ho Is to match
wits with Villa. Ills deliberation, offi
cers her ssy, is calculated to make cer

Tha War department is Interested only
In thee military movements. Dlscusnlon
of th ultimate possibilities or probabili
ties of the stand taken by the A'ashlng-
ton administration or by General Car
ransa Is only a side Issue, an academic
argument It has been dlacuased by the
army only in connection with the possi
bility that a Carransa force might be left
In th rear of th advancing columns
without a definite understanding of what
its attitude might be.
Taklnsr TS Chances.
Officers familiar with Oeneral Fun
ston's reports of his troop dispositions
said he was taking no chances in this
connection. " .
Th belief thst American troopers al
ready were across tho line to watch at
least on slds of the region in which
Villa Is supposed to be operating, gained
strength tonight In unofflcist circles.
Press reports from the border tended to
bear out Ihts view, but so fsr as Is known
the War department was without con'
flrmatlon. Border reports also indicated
th possible mobilisation places of sev
erst columns, but officers declined to
discuss these, holding rigidly to the policy
announced by Secretary Baker of giving
General Funston every opportunity to ex.
ecute a surprise attack.
Reports from th three regiments of
cavalry ordered to Join Funston's border
army showed satisfactory speed was be
ing made In getting the troop In action.
Half of th command and all of. another
wera rolling toward th border before
sunaown tonight, eighteen hours after
they received marching orders. Th rest
will be in motion tomorrow morning.
It was learned tonight that every
agency of ths government that might
furnish General Funston with Informa
tion as to conditions in Mexico has
been called upon to do lis share. Reports
reaching any department that ml:ht
throw light on Villa's whereabout are
being forwarded promptly.

GURLEY FOR DELEGATE
To the Republicans of the Second Con
Having filed as a candidate for dele
pate from this Congressional District to the
Republican National Convention (by this
action submitting my name to be voted for
for at the Republican Primaries, to be held
April 18th), I take this opportunity to an
nounce my candidacy in conjunction with
my position as to the nominees of that con
vention. If elected a delegate, I shall give my
support to Charles E. Hughes and William
E. Borah. If elected, I shall accept such
election as an expression of preference
from my constituency to that effect.
The Republican Party can only win in
the coming campaign by nominations which
will draw together all hitherto warring
factions. Even the casual observer of the
political trend must recognize the ever
increasing sentiment among Republicans
everywhere for Charles E. Hughes. It is
useless to attempt to account for it the
feeling, deep and sincere, that his nomina
tion will best meet the exigencies of the sit
uation. Hughes, the most progressive of
the conservatives; Borah, the most conserv
ative of the progressives, in my judgment
more nearly represent "the-rank-and-file"
sentiment of the reunited Republican Party
than any other two men.
A vote for Ourley is a vote for Hughes

on any of the standard forma of policies.
