THE HEE: OMAHA, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1915.
President Has Decided on Chief
Features and Writing Document
WILL SPEND ALL WEEK ON IT
TWO WELL KNOWN OMAHA MEN
WHO DIED SUNDAY
WASHINGTON. Not. 22. Presi
dent Wllaon will put aside practically
all other public business this week
to derote his entire time to com
pleting his third annual message to
congress, which he plans to read per
sonally at a joint meeting or the
senate and house on December 7.
The president has decided on the
chief features of the message after
careful con solution with clone ad
Tlsers and Is now writing It out on
his typewriter. Nb attempt Is being
made to deal In the document wit
all the public questions pressing for
solution, for the president plans to
read special messages to congress as
Hold Loa Conference.
Jteprerentatlve Fltigerald, chairman
of ths bouse appropriations comml'tec,
held a Ions conference with the president
tonight and urged him to Include tn the
message an outline of methods considered
best for the raising of revenues to meet
the appropriations deemed certain to
greatly be increased on account of the
national defense plans.
Mr. Fitzgerald directed attention to an
amendment to the sundry civil bill of
1S06, which provides that In case the
estimated appropriations exceed the esti
mates In any year the president may
advise the congress how, In his Judg
ment, the estimated appropriations could
with least Injury to the public wvieo j
be reduced so as to bring the ap- j
propriaticns to the required estimates, or
If such reduction be not In his Judgment,
practicable, without undue injury to tho J
public service, that he may recommend
to congress such loans or new taxes as
may be necessary to cover the deficiency.
Two Views of Matter.
The view was taken ty Mr. Fitsgerald
that the president should at least Indi
cate generally how he thought the needed
money mljrht be raised, and it was con
sidered probable tonight that this will
be done. Other advisers of the pres -dent,
however, hare told him that sinr-e
revenue measures must originate In the
house, he ought not to appear to try to
usurp that power.
Mr. Fitsgerald, Senator Underwood and
a number of other leaders of congress on
the democratic side are known to be
opposed toa bond issue to pay for the
army and navy Increases for the ex
penditures for the purpose will have to
be continued from year to year.
The President's Program.
Although the president may not refer
to all of the subjects tn his message at
the opening of congress, the program
which the administration hopes to see
disposed during the commlng session in
cludes: Strengthening the army and navy In
accordance with the plans outlined by
-Secretaries Garrison and Daniels. '
A merchant marine bill.
Rural cred.ta legislation.
Ratification of the Haltlen, Colombian
mil Nicaraguan treaties.
The bill to give a greater measure of
self-government to the Philippines and
promising ultimate Independence.
Conservation measures which failed of
.final passage at the last session.
Amendment of the anti-trust laws so as
to allow the use of common selling agen
cies abroad by American exporters.
Legislation to protect the American
market against "dumping" of cheap for
eign products following the European
Amendment of the Sherman anti-trust
law so as to give the federal government
more power to prosecute plots to Inter
fere with Amer can commerce by blowing
up factories and ships.
The administration also is Interested
In the efforts to establish a budget sys
tem of co-ordinating expenses and reve
nues of the government and la a cloture
i tile for the senate.
The president, however, Is not expected
to take a direct part In the cloture

providing Amerdan trss1s to carry
abroad the products of their energy and
enterprise. There are many ways In
which ships msy be provided, but they
must be built, manned and maintained,
if we are to live up to our responsllblll
tles and our opportunities.
"When we take our proper place as a
grest commercial snd Industrial nation,
we must have a navy powerful enough
to protect our commerce and our roasts.

"We have no need of a large standing
army. We do need to provide the ma
terial and the machinery for the rrea-
1 tlon of an army. When the European
war is over, the nations rnntnl In it
will be exhausted physically and finan
cially, and we will be safe from attack
for a generation, ur for a decade at least.
It la not the Immediate future, but the
more remote future, for which we must
prepare. Why not provide military train
ing for the boys and young men In the
high schools, normal schools, colleges and
universities of the country? The govern
ment could furnish the Instructors and
the equipment; otherwise there would be
no expense. The training should be vol
untary, ao that it would be optional with
the student and his parents, to take It
or leave It Nearly all of the students
would take It. Such a course would
strengthen the boys physically, men
tally and morally. It would straighten
them up. teach them obedience and make
them more manly; and It need not take
them one day out of agricultural, com
mercial. Industrial or professional pur
suits. At the end of the school or college
course, they would go back to thell
homes and their business, no more sub
ject to military duty than any other
clttxen. A large standing army Is alwayt
a burden upon the backs of the people.
It Is of necessity an Idle army. It Is
alien In spirit, and not In contact ol
sympathy with everyday business Inter
ests. The young man who would receive
military training 'In the schools, colleges
and universities would be and remain
part of their own communities. The

They would not be a burden, but a bene

them, through the training received, a
spirit of loyalty and patriotism difficult
for them to obtain In any other way. Un
der such a system, In due time in ample
time we would have millions of young
men trained for defensive, but not ag

of Mexico have been groping their way

wanton waste of life and property. We

"Th tariff will be the paramount Issue
In tha coming presidential campaign. On
that Issue tha two great parties decis
ively disagree. The republican party will
adhere to and advocate the policy of
protection - to American Industries; and
the democratic party, without a definite
plan, will try to raise revenue by Im
posing unusual, burdensome taxes on
American enterprise. Wc are at peace
with all the world; but, nevertheless, we
are subject to war taxes, imposed upon
ua by a democratic administration. Taxes
are levied, not only upon property and
assets, but upon liabilities as well. The '
industrious citizen who borrows money I
for his business Is taxed for that prlvl-
lege. The present method of raising the I
necessary revenue for the government is I
not a system; it Is a patchwork process.
It starts nowhere, leads nowhere, and
gets nowhere. When the republican psrty
went out of power, the treasury was full;
now It Is nearly empty. If our factories
were not furnishing munitions of war,
and our farmers were not supplying
Europe with farm products for war pur
poses, our Industrial and commercial con
ditions would be similar to that existing,
under the democratic administration
prior to election of McKlnely In 1896. In
the last presidential election, the people
of the United Btates did not repudiate the
republ'can party, or the policy pf pro
tection; and In the coming campaign,
with a reunited party, the republicans
will go back into power and recreate
sound economic conditions, giving con
tinuous employment to labor, and inspir
ing with confidence the constructive,
commercial and Industrial forces of the
country. The present administration
particularly promised to reduce the high I
coat of living; yet the cost of living Is :
higher today than ever before In the I
history of the United States. Inequalities '

tariff system; some rates have been too
high, others too low; but th principle
of protection Is absolutely sound, and
