to Invade China.

lllll na It l ame from
WASHINGTON. March 6-The question
of the enlargement of the medical depart
ment of the army occupied the major por
tion of the time of the senate today. The
question arose in connection with the con
sideration of a bill for the displacement
of contract surgeons by physicians who
shall be given the rank of army officers,
and the reorganization of the medical corps.
Mr. Hale criticised tho bill as an entering
wedge for a general increase of the army
and said that It was a part of a general
plan of the general start" which he charged
with general purpose of enhancing the
army's Importance. In his remarks the
senator said the general staff was disposed
to encourage an invasion of China.
Messrs. Carter and Qallinger spoke in
somewhat the same vein of objection as did
Mr. Hale, while the hill was defended by
Messrs. Warren, Blackburn and other sen
ators. The hill was not disposed of.
The only speech of the day on the state
hood bill was made by Mr. Ing. who
advocated the passage of the bill as re
ported by the committee on territories.
Secretary Taft occupied a snat on tha
floor of the senate while the army bill was
under consideration.

When the senalo convened 'today Messrs.
Clapp, MeCumber and Dubois were ap
pointed as n committee to confer with a

providing for the settlement of the a IT. 1 Irs
of the five clvlllied tribes of Indians.
The bill providing for the increase of the
efficiency of the medical department of the
army was called up ami Mr. Hale spoke in
opposition to it. He said that the bill was
one of the many prepared by the genernl
staff of the army Intended to accomplish
the Influence of the army which he be
lieved undesirable. He added a word c-j.-pressing
his conviction that the plan was
that of the general staff nnd not of the
secretary of war.
"AI! of these bills have their root here."
he said. "I find that this staff, dealing
with an army of men, is disporting
itself as the general staffs In Europe do,
whereas in Germany, for instance, there If

the plans pursued were proper where end.

In this connection Mr. Hale said that the
general staff had prepared plans for the
invasion of China by an American army,
but he added that he did not mean to go
Into this subject.
"For with the secretary ot state sitting on
the lid I do not believe we aro likely to
have war."
It waa, he said, the purpose of that organ
ization to invade China which would bo a
declaration of war.
Mr. Hale was replying to a question of
Mr. Tillman, who asked how many troops
had been sent to the Philippines with a
view to their being sent to China, and Mr.
Hale said:
"1 don't know how many troops Siave
been sent there, but I think several thousand-
The purpose of the. general staff
that they may be used If any emergency
either arises, or can be made, to Invade
China, which, of course, would be a dec
laration of war, while, congress is In ses

Mr. Hale spoke of the great rxpense of
the retired list, saying that In the last
three years we have retired more brigadier
generals than were ever retired before in
the same time alter a great war. He also
said that the navy list was something
Warren Iteplles to Hale.
Mr. Warren replied to the last suggestion
by saying thut It was due largely to the
bill of last session retiring officers who had
served in the civil war with Increased
rank and called attention to the fart that
Mr. Hale had supported that mensute. Mr.
Hale responded that the Increase was due
not to the civil war. but to the fact tiiat
officers were given Increased rank for a
very brief time, in some cases only for a
day, In order to give them better rank In
Mr. Warren took exception to Mr. Utile's
statement that the pending bill was one of
many looking to an increase of the army,
declaring that it was not intended for that
purpose and that no Increase In expend!-

When Mr. lmg concluded, the bill for the

and passed.
The senate then resumed consideration of
the bill to Increase the efficiency of the
medical department of the army and Mr.
Carter took the floor In opposition to it.
He declared the hill was an entering wedge
for an Increase of the army, which he did
not believe to be desired by the country.
He suggested the recommittal of the bill.
