BUTLER A "SUBMISSIMIST"
Willing to Grant Anything That Will

By ARTHUR W. DUNN.
Washington. April I Special.
''Var legislation which no one would
lave dreameel of a short time ago is-
:OW pushed through congress with
great rapidity. Evidently congress in
tends to do all it can to further the
prosecution of the war against Ger
many. ' Congressman Butler of Pennsylva
nia, a Republican and the ranking
minority member of the committee on j
naval affairs, voiced the view of a
great many members of congress dur-
nir the discussion of one of these war
measures when le said that he was a
ubmissimist." lie was willing to
submit to whatever the administration
thought was necessary to carry em the
Commander In Chief.
I sometimes wonder whether the peo
ple of the whole country realize how
much is meant by the words "com
mander in chief of the army and
uavv." words used in the constitution
which in times of war vest in the
president of the United States more
l ower than the czar of Itussia had be
fore he was dethroned, more rower
than is possessed by the kaiser of Ger
many, more power than any man ever
had in any modern government.
There is nothing that the commander
in chief in the United States cannot do
!&.time of war. He is absedute. The
only check is that congress must make
appropriations every two years. But
there never was a congress in time of
war that was not under the control
of the president, the commander in
The Precidsnt Wins.
It is not surprising under these cir
cumstances that the president wins in
any contest he has with congress. TUs
president got just the kind of war
declaration ho wanted. lie had the
kind of bond bill passed which suit
ed him. He had various otuer war
measures passed in accord with his
desires. Even in the matter of con
scription, opposed by so many men, lie
has his way.
"Stand by the president," is the
strongest phrase that has ever been
framed. It means that, no matter
what a majority of the people may
think or what their representatives
may L-elieve wise, whatever the presi
dent wants must be grantc-d.
Thousands of letters, petitions, reso
lutions and. in fact, all kinds of docu
ments are being received by "senators
and representatives indicating the loy
alty of the people of the United States
to the government at the present time.
These communications come from civie
bodies and various other kinds of or
ganizations and from individuals.
Many of them contain suggestions as
to what ought to be done, advice to
senators and representatives and to
officers of the federal government.
For a time the columns of the Con
gressional Itecord overflowed with
these communications until protests
were made by many senators, and
there has been an effort during the
past few days to keep out of the Ilec
ord all such matters as far as possible.
Of course only comparatively few peo
ple read the Congressional Record, and
it is impossible for the press of the
country to carry even a small propor
tion of this class of literature and give
it publicity. The loyal feature of it.
however, is gratifying to the govern
ment at a time when the nation is pre
paring for its part in the greatest war
