A substitute for the militia pay bill
has been submitted to Secretary Stinv
son and has secured his approval. The
pay of officers of the militia in this
bill is a percentage of that of officers
of like grade in the regular army, not
including longevity pay, as follows:
Five per cent, to all general officers
commanding a division or brigade, in
cluding authorized officers detailed for
duty therewith, the division and bri
gade inspectors of small arms practice,
if any, the authorized aide chaplains;
20 per cent, to commanding officers of
companies, troops, battalions and am
bulance companies and to adjutants
and quartermasters of regiments. Inde
pendent battalions, squadrons and
coast artillery districts, including med
ical officers doing duty or assigned to
regiments or smaller tactical units or
coast artillery districts, medical offi
cers serving with field hospitals and
The enlisted men, it is provided.
shall receive compensation at the same rate as the enlisted man of the cor
responding grade of the regular army at the rate of 25 per cent, of the initial
pay now provided by law for enlisted men of corresponding grade of the
regular army, provided no soldier shall have attended not less than 45 regu
lar drills during one year and a proportionate amount for attendance upon a
lesser number of such drills not less than 20. No money is to be paid to any
person not on the active list, nor to any person not over 64 years of age, nor
to any person who fails to qualify as to fitness for military service. In time
of war, or when war is imminent, or other grave emergency, the president
may by order transfer to the army any portion of the organized militia re
ceiving, or entitled to receive, the benefits of the act to serve therein for
the balance of their respective terms of enlistment or commissions. Such
part of the militia will be a part of the army.
Baroness Bertha von Buttner of
Vienna, famous among other things
because it was she who inspired the
founding of the Nobel prizes, is in
America on a mission unique among
those undertaken by women of the Old
World among the women of the New.
She is here to tell her sisters what
she knows of the horrors of war and
to appeal to the women of the United
States to do their utmost toward the
aboilition of war.
The campaign for peace undertaken
last spring by Baron d'Estournelles de
Constant of France was noteworthy.
For three months Baron d'Estour
nelles, himself a Nobel prize winner,
went through the country, and every
where his arguments were heard with
Interest. So also in the case of Count
Albert Apponyi people crowded to
hear what the Hungarian parliamen
tarian bad to say about the cost of
armed peace now prevailing In Europe.
But. much as these advocates for
peace accomplished here, there stood arrayed against them continually the
plea of necessity, the plea that ever Increasing armaments were an absolute
essential. Neither the Frenchman nor the Hungarian cared to depart from
parliamentary usages, and for this reason they permitted their arguments to
go before the people exactly for what they were worth.
The Baroness von Suttner comes to this country to try different tactics.
She may agree with her fellow workers in Europe that the nations are bur
dened with armaments to the breaking point, that the patience of the people
themselves is well, nigh exhausted, that the times portend that conditions
cannot continue as at present; but she has something more effective at her'
command than international law and parliamentary argument. Her most ef
fective appeal will be to sentiment. As one who knows from experience the
horrors of war, the Baroness von Suttner will be able to make this appeal

C. P. NEILL, THE STRIKE FIXER
Perhaps no man in the United
States, or in the whole world, occu
pies such a happy position between
the mighty industrial elements capi
tal and labor as does Dr. Charles P.
Neill, commissioner of labor, who has
averted scores of large strikes, involv
ing thousands upon thousands of men,
through bis remarkable tact and abil
ity to solve economic problems. Since
1906 Commissioner Neill has been in
strumental in settling 47 controver
sies, directly involving 163,050 em
ployes and 505,880 miles of railroad.
Born in Illinois in 1865, the future
"strike fixer" was taken to Texas by
his parents five years later. He now
prides himself on the fact that he is a

intervention and mediation has been the same in each case peace restored
Working for Dollars
and Dollars Wording
Thrift is the difference between the House of Have and
the House of Want. It is the difference between spnding all
that you earn and earning a bit more than you spend. ' It is
the difference between a little self-denial now that you may
have ease in the future, and indulging now at the expense of
privation in future.
Thrift is a habit as easily cultivated as the habit of ex
travagance. Thrift does not mean simply saving money; it
means making money earn something for you. Let us help
you put your hard-earned dollars to work for you, - You save
them and we'll make them work for you. You get the profits
from the dollars you save. Our system is simple. Let us ex
plain it to you in detail.
