THE RKAL FIGHT LATKSL Treaty «f VCMCT- W1.1tile Will Re Ratified WtTh' Object From DrmwrHt*. ASIIINOTON.Inn !)«••. Clark Howell, meinlter of the Dcmoeratic national committee from Georgia and editor of the Atlanta Constitution, after consult ing w.th the leaders of both the politi cal parties at Washington, has Ulo graphed as follows to his paper: "With the adjournment of congress for the holidays the final decision on the peace treaty is as clear us it will be after a vote has been taken in the sen ate. Two wt eks ago the matter was in doubt today it is as tertain that the treaty will Is* ratified as it will 1e that it is after the vote has leen taken. "Mr. Hryan has been in Washington for several days and has conferred fre quently and with the Democratic leaders ill both the senate and house. He has Aii\l»p1 Hntltl'i«tinii of the Treiitjr and he is out*pok«-n in the ojiinion that, aside fiom theiuestioii of national ob ligation, it is a matter of party policy for the Iiemts rats to throw no obstacle li the way of ratification. There ari leading Democrats of Imth the senatt and house who less than a week a were in doubt as to whether or not petiiocrats should assist in ratifying the treaty more than that, some of them were outspoken in the opinion that it was perhaps better to reject it. Today many of these Democratic leaders take ojten position that the treaty should be ratified. The ratification of the treaty will not carry with it the assumption that all those who vote affirmatively art in favor of national expansion across the Pacific. Opponents of expansion take the view that the ^unttun of r.x|an*l««» I* Not In\olved in the cousi«Vratioii of the peace treaty and that after the treaty has been rati fied and Spain eliminated as a factor of the Philippine problem it will lie time enough to consider the policy to he pur sued in dealing with the Philippines, ami ju-t here will come the real contest of the question of expansion." Mr. Howell summarizes the situation as follows: "As the result of the final encounter over the resolution it may be that the country will witness the spectacle of liadly severed party lines and out of it mav be furnished the battle cries around of which will be formed the lines the next presidential light.

VII AC Ml of the Minority of the House Military A flairs Com mittee Will Be Filed With the Clerk of the House by Representa tive Hay. It Provides For a Regular Army of Thirty Thousand Officers and MM* 'ifty Thousand Volunteers For Present Emergencies—The Argument. WARHINOTOX, Dec. 28.—The bill for the increase of the regular army which the minority of the house committee on military affairs will offer as a substitute for the Hull bill, was drawn by Repre sentative Hay of Virginia, and is now in the hands of tho war department, where an estimate is being made of the cost of such a military establishment as it provides. The bill, as drawn, pro vides for a standing army of :!0.000, 12,000 artillery. *.000 infantry, 6.000 cavalry and engineer, ordnance and sig nal corps and general staff. To meet the existing exigency for troops in Porto Rico, Cuba, the Philippines. Hawaii and the Ladrones, the bill provides that the president may issue his proclamation for 50.00O additional volunteer tr«ops to be en listed for two years. These latter troops are te be commanded by officers appointed by the president. The or ganization is to be the same as in the regular army, the strength of the differ ent arms of the servio- to be determined by the president. The present volun teers are to be mustered out within "o days after the passage of the act, but volunteer organizations now in the ser vice shall be given preference for en listment in the new volunteer army it' they so elect within 1" days. The bill provides that no regular army officer who wius in the army prior to the war with Spain shall bp mustered.Oti' of the sen-ice. The Contention of the Miuoritjr. Mr. Hay will file the bill and the mi nority report on the Hull hill with tie* clerk of the house. The main contention the bill will make for the minority plan as against the Hull bill for a standing' army of men. is that the future of the Philippines and Cuba are yet un determined. but that if the standing armv is increased to 100,000 it will be almost impossible, no matter what may happen in the future, to reduce it. The report say that a standing army of too.) MM)will men will cost the people of the United States I'M.000.000. This aided to the $l4."».MM.nno for pensions will bring the cost of tic military establish ment up to Uo.ooo.OiM). the largest charge in the world for a military es tablishment. The naval establishment would bring the total up many millions more. Mr. Hay estimates that a standing army of n.oMi with •".(«0 additional volunteers would cost sflOO.oOO.OOO. but this charge might be only for two years. The creation of a volunteer fcrce for temporary purposes would always keep it within the power of congress to ad just the strength of that force to the ex isting conditions. Mil.™ FOE MANILA.
