THE BEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY, MAY 12, 1917. GLOflU IHYADES CAMP OF MATHER Action of Congress in Turning Down Roosevelt Cripples Enlistment Flans of Lincoln Man. " A pall of gloom has been spread over the war-like ambitions of Col- '.onel Mather. He had signed up to re cruit a regiment of Kebraskana, join Colonel Roosevelt and, after an over sea voyage, lead his men into the trenches to face the Germans. The action of congress, when it threw into the discard the proposition of Colonel Roosevelt to enlist a -full division for oversea service, put a crimp in the enlistment plans of Col onel Mather, For more than a month Colonel Mather had been signing up men to go to France and according to his state smen! something more than 700 had signed up. Among them were Rough ' Riders, cowboys, veterans of trie 1 Spanish-American war, expert rifle shots and scouts who had served along the Mexican border. "With congress against the propo sition," said Colonel Mather, "I am unable to figure out a way by which Colonel Roosevelt can raise an inde pendent army union for service in Europe, or elsewhere. It is hard to say what effect Hie action of con gress will have upon our men. We have not decided to disband the or ganization because of the hope that later on some favorable action may be taken. - .
