Condemns Wilson and Bryan for

URGES A MERCHANT MARINE
DAVENPORT, la., Oct. 14-Con-
demnatlon of certain utterances of
President Wilson; and William J.
Bryan, regarding cltlsen soldiery and
non-resistance and of the LaFollete
seaman's act, as tending to prevent,
creation of a merchant marine auxil
iary of the navy was uttered here to
night by Henry D. Eetabrook, a New
York attorney, at the banquet of the
midwest conference on preparedness.
Mr. Estabrook, Senator Cummins of
Oowa, and several other speakers ad
dressed an audience containing many
members of the national congress, as
well as representatives of most of the
principal cities of Iowa and Illinois.
"No nation threatens us in . so many
words," Mr. Eila-brook said, "but who is
oblivious to hints and Intimations T We
boast our strength to repel attack when
we know that we are weaker than dish
water. Whll other nations have been
preparina for assreaalon. we bav not
made ready even for defense.
M mat Spend Money. ..
"The machinations against this govern
ment at the moment are more subter
ranean than submarine. Our duty la to
defend against both. We must forthwith
spend money for defense and lota of it.
We must know that we ere safe even
from the temptation of attack. Our peace
and future happlneas depend upon this
Mr. Estabrook said further that there
are "no better auxiliary to a navy than
a merchant marine, nor Is there any in
strumentality that contribute more to the
glory and riches of a country." Till
brought him to consideration of the La
Follette act, which he characterised a
"the stupidest piece of legislation in the
history of the country."
"It should not be spoken of as an act
I to encourge our merchant marine, but to
abolish tt and turn our shipping over to
Japan, for that will be the aum total of
Us accomplishment." aaid Mr. Estabrook.
Senator Cummins advocated a conalst
ent program of preparedness ot amke the
nation ready to defend Itself and main
tain Ha peace.
"I have no aympathy with the Pro
posal to enter in mad competition for
dominance, which has characterised the
policy of Great Britain and Germany,"
aaid Senator Cummins, "but congress
ahould take immediate measures to sup
ply the necessary elements of ou rnaval
strength. However, I am utterly op
posed to any plan for the reorganisation
of the army Including land reserves that
Involves compulsory military training ex
cept In schools.
The regular army probably requires
some enlargement, but we should be very
conservative about the extent of its In
crease. For the body of reserves we
must either take the National Guard or
create federal militia and make the serv
ice so attractive that we will at all
times have enough young men with mili
tary experience to furnish almost In
stantly an army of any desired strength."

the foreign minister, who retired yes
terday, in his lotter of resignation did
not Invoke poor health as th reason for

In regard lo the French foreign policy,

Premier Vlvlanl refused yesterday to

calls certain facta, discussion of which
the censor forblda.
Th resignation ef M. Delcasse has pro
duced a profound effect upon the French
public, although It has been known for
some time there has been friction be
tween him and th roet of the cabinet.
Th press generally abstr.lns from com
ment, but what little Is safd Is hostile
to the retiring minister. Wrltors blame
him for the failure of the Balkan policy
and charge that he is trying to shift tha
burden of responsibility upon his former
colleague inatead of trying to find a
remedy for mistakes. Hiss Illness Is re
garded as of a diplomatic character.

attacked th French foreign policy, de

which his colleague resigned. All he
can aay la that Delcase Is In full agree
