KAISER'S BOAST IS FOOLISH
Necessity of Case Prevents Giving
Commands in New Army to Men
Who Have Deserved Promotion on
By ARTHOR W. DUNN.
Washington. When the war first be
gan the Cermans believed that the
United States would force an open
highway between Germany and this
country because of the necessity for
certain supplies and materials which
ve had been obtaining from Germany.
The most Important of these were
dyes and p..tash. Hut the Germans
made a mistake there as they have
In. other calculations. It has recently
been shown that nearly .?." M h U has
been invested In plants and factories
for manufacturing dyes, and that we
are now about as well off as before
the war began.
Secretary Lane recently made this
important announcement: "The United
States does not need German potash."
The secretary of the Interior then
went on to explain that the kaiser"
benst that nil countries will have to
depend upon Germany for potash after
the war is an idle and false state
ment. Nearly a quarter of .a million
tons of potash came from Germany
each year before the war. but when
the United States found herself cm
ofl she went to work and looked up
the potash fields, and It is now found
that we will have an ample supply not
only during the war but after the
war. And so not only was Germany
fooled into believing that America
could not yet along without her while
the war was going on. but she will
find that America will tret along with
out her after the war. This war is go
ing to be a very costly thin? for the
German people. They ought to be able
to take an account, of slock and see
what the 1 lohenrtoll'-rns have ' cost
them in prestige and prosperity.
There is a tremendous lot of disap
pointment among the friends of sol
diets who have already gone "ovei
then-" because the latter have not been
considered for appointment as olli
cers in the new armies that are now
being raised. Naturally we wou!dall
like to .see the men who have done
uch good service in beating back tht
Huns, and who have made good, get
the commissions and official positions
iu the new army. liy the same token
it would seem that the men who have
devoted their lives to tiie military serv
ice ought to be prefererd over those
who went in when the country was
called to arms. But solid fact inter
veues to prevent rewarding either tin
army officers who have been titling
themselves from boyhood for just such
a crisis, or the. men who were lirst to
volunteer, or were first drafted ami
have gone over ami become mightj
The necessity of the case forces the
raising of an army ami officering It
from available men. At the begin
ning the regular army otlicers could
not all be taken from their regiments
and commands. Nor is it possible t
take the soldiers who have by splen
did service v on the right to have a eoin
mission and bring them hack here and
make them ollicers in the new arm
that Is being raised. In a country like
this where we did. not keep a large
standing army we must work with 4he?
material at Land and as we raise new
armies we must cr.'afe ollicers foi
them. If the army were fighting hen
at home it would not be such a task
to transfer soldiers who have earned
promotion und make them officers in
the new army, but we cannot brin.2
them back from Unmet and then send
them hack again to that country. The
men who are organizing the present
rrniy must do the best they can.

Mrs. Warren, wife of Senator War
ren of Wyoming, would like to know
the newspaper man to whom she is in
debted for a fine trip to the sc coast.
She says that for two weeks slit read
nearly every day in the papers about
what she was doing on the boardwalk
at Atlantic City while sojourning nt
one of the very fashionable hotels of
that delightful resort. "All the time
that this was taking place," said Mrs.
Warren, "I was out in Wyoming ridin?
horses on the ranch, and in other ways
enjoying myself. What I would like
would be to get those splendid gowns
in which I appeared on the board
walk and nt the hops. I shall miss
them very much."
It was a historic occasion when Pres
ident Wilson drew the first number In
the eighteen-to-forty-five draft lottery
Many high officials were on hand, as
well as photographers and moving pic
ture camera men. But no one would
have thought so, looking over the scene
an hour later. Porters were removing
the chairs that had been occupied by
the government officials, and the high
est remaining official In sight was an
army officer calling out the numbers
as they were drawn. from the bowl.
That is one thing about Washington.
So many historic functions here that
people h-ivo the time and desire to be
present at only the r.iost important
part of the proceedings.
POLITICS IS NOT AFFECTED
Race Issue In Congress Practically Is
Abandoned Now Bill to Extend Ag
riculture May Not Become Law for
By ARTHUR W. DUNN.
Washington. It has not needed r.n
real announcement, official or other
wise, to adjourn politics so far as wir
legislation Is concerned. One of the
very best features of the participation
of the United States in this great war
Is the fact that there has not been a
single partisan vote ast on any war
question. That is to say, while tin r
hits been .a difference of opinion hi
regard to a number of measures that
have been presented for the prosecu
tion of the mar, these differences of
opinion were not . based upon pM; t
lines in any manner whatever. U.oth
IJepublieans and Democrats voted foi
the war declaration; Joth voted
against it. Democrats aud Republic
ans voted for the corn -ription bill, ami
Democrats and Ilepublicans voted
against it. And so it has been with
all ef the Important war meaisiircs
that have been presented. There ha
not been a vote upon party lines on
any measure siffectlng .the war.
It has only been when an election
takes place; that partisan polities
comes to the front, when there is a;i
effort to elect either a Republican oi
a Democrat to fill a vacancy in ::
doubtful state for the senate or ::
doubtful district for the house. In
stead ef an attempt to inject politics
into the war, there has been an a:
tempt to inject the war into politics.
That has occurred iu nearly eer
ek'ction that has been held and frieni
of both party candidates have attempt
ed to prove that they are the slmon
pure war party. Urom what has ban
penod in elections already held, tie
chances are that the war issues wi!i
not affect politics one way or tl.
other, but Republicans will vote tm
Republican ticket and Democrats v.ii;
vote the Democratic ticket, and what
ever may be the result of the coiidnj
elections cannot have any bearing
upon the war one way or the other.
The race issue becomes mo:e and
more feeble each time it is brought
forward. Strange to say, it was th
Republicans who took the lead in
abandoning the race issue. During th;
fourteen years in which they were ir
control ef both houses of congress and
the presidency they never attempted
to pass a force bill or any other kind
of a measure which would inurt
black voting In Southern states. On
the other hand the Southern Demo
crats have kept the race issue going P
some extent, the last time by propos
ing an amendment to the woman suf
frage amendment to limit the exten
sion of the franchise to white wouien
only. This amendment received 1"
votes, 20 of them bting cast by sena
tors from Southern states, one by a
Northern Democrat from Montana and
the other by a Northern Republican
from Idaho. Perhaps this statement
is not wholly correct, because the vote
was to table the amendment instead
of being direct, and in all probability
Senator Borah voted "no" because he
has always insisted that votes should
be taken on the main proposition
rather than voting to lay on the table,
which is not a direct vote. I'ive sena
tors from Southern states voted to
table the race amendment. They were
all earnest suffrage votes and that
may account for them. No one evei
had the slightest idea that there was
any possibility of making a distinc
tion in a constitutional amendment
between white and black people in the
matter of the voting privilege.
House bill 11943 is having a most
Interesting history. Introduce!! four
or five months ago as an emergency
war measure, it has been knocking
about in the senate and house over
since. This Is the bill which is in
tended to stimulate agriculture and
appropriates about $12.00),MR) for that
purpose. It has had very "hard sled
ding," to use a Northtrn expression,
and the end is not yet in sight. It
has been severely criticized as a
rather useless measure and 1ms had
several important amendments at
tached to It, the most important belns
the one which makes the country
bone tlry after the 1st of June next
year. Then It is also the bill which
carries an antireut-profiteering propo
sition for the District of Columbia,
over which there has been a contro
versy for six or seven months. And
now there is a possibility that the
house will be without a quorum until
after the ejections. So it is quite like
ly that this "emergency" measure will
still drag along for two months mere
before it is finally passed.
For nearly three months Senator
I'orah has been persistent in one
thing, and finally his persistence has
been rewarded. "He has betn trving
to have printed the report of the fed
eral trails commission which so se
verely criticised the meat packers. He
