Representa tive Flood, continuing his address in the house in support of the armed neutrality bill, said: t By (his act we may not be able to avert war. If we should become in volved in war, however, the passage' of this bill would be one of the minor causes of that direful result. It may be necessary only to arm ships, but if we must do more, the fault is not ours. Give the president this power asked and the question of war will be With Germany. There is no doubt of the right ot Americans to travel and we should uphold this right peace fully. If that cannot be done, their-, we will do it with arms. Applause even greater than that which greeted Representative Flood's opening statement met Republican Leader Mann's rousing speech in favor of the bill. Few men on either side of the chamber failed to respond by hand-clapping or cheers.. "It is well -known," Representative Mann said, "that I have done and will do everything in my power to keep this country out of the European war and the peace settlement that is cer tain to lollow its end. cut 1 do not see how it is possible for a patriotic nation to refuse to give the president at the time of this crisis power which he asks and whici is provided tor in the pending bill. - 1 recognize that those opposing this proposition are filled with devo tion to the country as the rest of us art," he continued, "but I am not willing to cavil over the terms of power conferred on the president.

EQUAL FRANCHISE MEET "I -am opposed to the minimum wage in principle," said W. F. Bax ter, as a preface' to his talk on that subject before the Equal Franchise society at Jhe home of Mrs. J. I. Stewart 'II, Thursday afternoon. "It is merely a temporary measure and should not be made fixed law.- It seeks" to establish and impose on other men a law of cqnduct not djc tated by 1 themselves. We speak of theconstitution of the United Stages with 'bated breath, HJut it is merely set of laws made with the same wire pulling and legislating as your suffrage bill -will have when it is passed, provided, of course, that it does pass. , Xaws should be imposed as little as possible, and then only temporar ily, pending man's acqujremenj of fuller self-control. The progress of the world depends on the progress toward complete co-operation." Mr. Baxter hinted that there is a solution' of the wage question dealing with the land, the source of all sup ply, which he could explain to the organization should they desire it. The committee in charge ot programs immediately suggested a possible date for the continuation of the discus sion. Preliminary to the talk of the after. noon, rora. J. m. jnciuu, lucsiucm ui If.
