Many enlisted men have discovered important matters which will .prevent them from continuing as soldiers. Governor Moreheadappears of the opinion that where a man has a fam ily which will be seriously inconven ienced by Jhi absence or a business that will possibly go to the dogs if he is not present to look after it, or if the recruit has a mother or perhaps aged parents who depend upon him solely for their support that an ex cuse of that kind is good.

This was the talk among army officers and those who presumably know the niind of the president and others in military authority. - - It was also stated today that an emergency bill appropriating $50,000, 000. would be voted on Tuesday next week vesting this amount in the pres ident as congress did in the Spanish American war intrusting a like amount to President McKinley for the purpose of .meeting . every exi gency.' . . Of this amount it was learned, and it is somewhat significant, that $20, 000,000 will be set aside for aviation purposes. This, does not necessarily mean that the whole amount is to be used for the purchase of aero planes, but it means that the signal corps has requested this sum in order to put itself on a proper war footing. Yesterday it was learned fhat forty aeroplanes made in the United States and consigned to Great Britain for its war purposes were commandeered by the United States government and will be used upon the border. It is also stated today on authority that a contract was signed yesterday for the manufacture of thirty aero planes bj. the .. leading planes com panies in the United States and these for immediate delivery.
