meant that two major generals were

RAISE FUNDS ON
U. S. WARRANTS
Machinery Devised Through
Which Loans Will Be Made
Available in Lieu of
Washington, March 11. Railroad
executives and government repre
sentatives today laid the foundations
for the machinery through which
loans of banks and the war finance
corporation will be made available
to railroads during the next few
months in lieu of the funds which
cognress failed to provide. .
After conferences between a num
ber of leading railway corporation
officers and officials of the war fi
nance corporation and railroad ad
ministration, a special tinance com
mittee of seven, headed by Howard
Elliott, president of Northern Pa
cific, was created by the railroad ex
ecutives to co-operate with govern
ment agencies as a clearing house
for financial arrangements.
Swagar Sherley of Louisville, who
has just retired after serving 16
years in the house of representa
tives, recently as chairman of the
house appropriation committee, was
appointed by Director General
Hines as director of the railroad
administration's division of finance,
succeeding John Skeleton Williams,
resigned. On Mr. Sherley, who will
take office April IS, will fall much
of the work of administering the
financial plans yet to be developed.
To Issue Warrants.
An important feature of the finan
cial mechanics of the arrangements
to be made is the issuance, by the
railroad administration of govern
ment warrants to railroads for the
amounts due them on settlements
of last --year's accounts and other
debts. These warrants, virtually cer
tificates of indebtedness, would nop
be cashed until congress appropri
ates funds at the next session but
would serve as collateral for loans.
The loans would be arranged by
each railroad company individually
with its bankers, or in special cases
with the war finance corporation.
The railway executives' special
committee, together with the railroad
administration's financial agencies
would facilitate the negotiation and
distribution of these loans. Com
panies whose financial strength was
not great might be helped by the
railroad administration which will
get some funds through repayment
by railroads of advance already
made to them.

TO GEN, CRUDER
War Department's Treatment
of Colonel Denounced
in Letter by New York
Washington, March 11. Lieut.
Col. Samuel T. Ansell, former act
ing judge advocate general, sub
mitted a statement to Acting-Secretary
Crowell today in reply to the
letter of Maj. Gen. Enoch H. Crow
der, judge advocate general, to Sec
retary . Baker on the controversy
over the administration of military
justice. Because of certain refer
ences concerning him made by Gen.
Crowder, Colonel Ansell asked that
his statement be given the same
publication as that of the judge ad
Colonel Ansell's statement was
not made public. Soon after it was
submitted, Representative Gould of
New York gave out copies of a let
ter he wrote Secretary Baker today
regarding the discharge of Colonel
Ansell from his wartime commission
as a brigadier general. Representa
tive Gould told the secretary he
was "unable to, escape the conclu
sion that the War department had
deliberately and ruthlessly adopted
this method of punishing a public
spirited and efficient officer, whose
sole offense was against a powerful
and self-centered clique in your de
partment, in that he answered a
summons which he could not decline
and told the congress of the United
States the truth about a matter
which it was clearly the duty of con
gress to inquire into."
General Crowder made the speci
fic charge against Colonel (then
General) Ansell, that the latter had
moved in an irregular way to secure
his own appointment as acting judge
advocate general and the relief of
General Crowder from any direct
connection with that office. The re
ply submitted by Colonel Ansell is
understood to be addressed to this
charge rather than to further dis
cussion of the controversy over mili
tary justice matters.

Statement .by Bryan.
" The statement follows:
"The league of nation! I the greatest
step toward jipare In a thousand yean.
The Idea of substituting reason for force
In the settlement of International dls
putes la In Itself an epoch-making ad
vance. The constitution of the league as
announced provides for three thing- which
constitute In themselves an advantage the
Importance of which can scarcely be esti
mated. Deliberation before war the Investiga
tion of all disputes of their kind and
character before hostilities begin. This
almost ends war. The Idea Is taken from
the 30 treaties negotiated by the United
States with throe-quarters of the world.
Our nation, therefore, gives to the peace
league Its greatest piece of machinery.
Stcond, the reduction of armaments
will make It Impossible for a nation to
prepare for war without notifying the
world of Its Intention.
Third, the abolition of secret treaties,
which will do much to prevent the com
binations which lead to war. If the
league of nations did nothing more than
provide these three things, our nation
would be justified In supporting It to the
"It Is not to be expected that so great
an Idea as the league of nations would be
made perfect In detail In so short a time.
There are defects that should be corrected
and the fullest discussion of proposed
amendments should be invited. The news
papers of Great Britain, France and Italy
ore .not backward in the expression of
meir views as to cnanges tnac snouia De
made. Why should the American people
be? Ours is the nation most Influential
In the league, and most disinterested. Its
people should help by free and frank
discussion to perfect the league. Tin
president has done the best he could,
but he will be aided by Intelligent criti
cism from those friendly to the Idea.
Basis of Representation Vnfalr.
"I venture to point out certain amend
ments that should In my judgment be
made tn the interest of a stronger and
better league. First, the basis of repre
sentation It not fair to the' United States.
A comparison of voting strength will show
that while our nation la the most power
ful In the combination, whether measured
by population,, wealth or moral Influence,
It has no larger vote than nations much
Inferior In population, wealth and in
fluence. This Inequality ought. If possible,
to be corrected, for justice Is the only
foundation upon which any Institution
can rest in ' permanent security.
"Second, the terms of admission to na
tions that may desire to Join hereafter
are not fair. To require a two-thirds
vote to admit a new nation suggests the
social club, where a few black balls may
keep out an uncongenial applicant. This
world league is for 'he world. The presi
dent Jias well said that our nation Is not
Interested In a league unless all nations
are In It. The qualification for admission
ought to be fixed, and then It ought to
be made as easy as possible for those who
are qualified to gain admission. Under
no circumstances should the consent of
more than a majority be required for the
admission of any qualified nation.
"The faults of the constitution are
found to be In Its indeflniteness rather
than In things positively objectionable.
For Instance, it Is not stated with suffi
cient clearness that the Monroe doctrine
is preserved. Our nation is not asking
to be permitted to assist In the settle
ment of European disputes and thereforo
It ought not to he asked to give up Its
paramount Influence in the western hemi
sphere as a condition precedent to Its
entry Into the league.
"Then, too. It Is- not stated with suf
ficient clearness that a league member
Is not required to become a mandatory.
It ought to be definitely stated that a na
tion asked to become a mandatory Is at
liberty to accept or decline. Again, it
should be made clear that the league Is
not to Interfere In the Internal affairs of
the nations belonging to the league. The
league Is for the settlement of Interna
tional disputes, not for the adjustment of
differences between a nation and Its own
Would Restrict Council' Power.
"Another matter that should be made
clear and nothing can be more Im
portant than thla Is that each nation
has a right to decide for itself whether
It will undertake the things advised by
the general council. The language of the
constitution, while not definite, would
seem to Indicate that no nation la re
qulied to furnish force to back up a de
cision of the council. But no doubt should
be left on this subject. This aatlon can
not afford to allow a council in which
It has so small a voice to carry It Into war
against Its will. Our people wilt have as
much sense when the time comes to act
as they have now and they will have
more light to guide them. When the
mergency arises and they understand all
the circumstances and conditions they may
be willing to assist by force, but they can
not decide In advance or allow a council
to decide for them.
"The constitution of the league woujd
seem to Imply the right of the council to
compel the declaration of an economic
boycott by the members of the league.
This is not quite so serious aa the declara
tion of war, but economic boycott la likely
to develop into a war, and an economic
boycott may be pecuniarily advantageous
to the nations that want to declare It.
Our Interests may not be Identical In thla
respect, and we ought to have a right to
say at the time, whether we would declare
such a boycott.
"I venture to suggest that the scope of
the league's work might well be extended
beyond what Is now contemplated. A
substitute for war must be able to deal
with every situation that can become a
cause cf war. One of the most fruitful
causes of war has been the necessity for
expansion. Growing nations, feeling the
necessity for more room, have often gone
to war on some clumsy pretext when the
real purpose has been to secure territory
for an Increasing population. . The
right to live Is one of the rights. It la a
primal right that must be recognized In
nations as well as Individuals.
Should Adjust Land Claims.
"Nations exercise the right of taking
unused land and distributing it among
those who need It. So, if the league of
nations Is to substitute reason for war,
it must be able to deal with claims that
are made for the waste places of the elrth.
A nation feeling a need for more territory
should be able to go before the league and
present its claims and point out the ter
ritory which It can use to advantage. The
council should consider the claim and ad
just It, and the force of public opinion
should be used to secure such an adjust
ment of equities as would afford a peace
able means of securing needed territory.
".Such adjustments could be made the
easier If the league endorsed the proposi
tion that any nation extending its aover
eignty over new territory should stand
ready to purchase the property of resi
dents who do not desire to remain under
the new sovereignty. The resident does
not go with the land. He has rights in
dependent and should be allowed to have
territory. If, against his will, he Is
brought under new sovereignty, he ought
to be able to sell his property without
loss and choose a sovereignty of his own
"I have suggested what seemed to me
to be desirable changes, some being modi
fications, some being merely more ex
plicit statements. I conclude, aa I be
gn. that while we should endeavor to
make the leagua as nearly perfect as
possible, we should not allow Ita im
perfections to lead to Its rejection. We
must tske risks, no matter whether we
accept the league or reject It. The risks
that we take In accepting It are less than
the risk we take If we reject It, and turn
back to the old ways of blood and slaugh
ter. Ood grant that those who ara en
trusted with the launching of thla sjreat
work may have the wisdom to so purge
It of selfishness and greed and so Infuse
Into It the spirit of the Prince of Peace
as to make it tha end of war."

Paris, March 11. The disciplinary

by the committee on committees',
and realizing what the new job
means, said to The Bee corre
spondent as his first official utter
ance: "I appreciate very greatly the
honor the republicans have con
ferred upon me. I feel very keenly
the responsibility of the position
and how much depends on my be
g able to fill the position in a
helpful and useful way.
"It is my desire and purpose to
assist the republican majority in
carrying out an enlightened policy
of constructive legislation.
"My ability to serve and the ac
complishment of that purpose will
depend wholly on the co-operation
of th republicans in congress,
which I earnestly desire, and which
I confidently expect, to have."
Ex-Congressman Sloan, who has
taken as much interest in the work
of the committee on committees as
if he were a member of the next
congress, and who is jubilant over
Mondell's selection as floor leader,
said today: "The pride of Nebraska
republicans shoujd be gratified in
the election of their stalwart re
publican neighbor, F. W. Mondell,
to leadership in the house.
"His long service, eminent ability
and unswerving republicanism at
once fit him for the position and
gives an example that a statesman's
deserts are sometimes recognized
and awarded by his colleagues.
"Geographically the speakership
in Massachusetts and the majority
leadership in Wyoming effects a de
sired balance as is also the case in
the natural bent of the two selected
leaders, one being a rather ultra
conservative, as his location would
indicate, and the other from the west
where wholesale progressive ten
dencies' within the party are and
should be highly esteemed.
"I forecast for the newly organ
ized republican majority a term of
seriously demanded and successful
Green Likes Choice.
Congressman Green of Iowa said
of Mr. Mondell's selection: "Mr.
Mondell has served 22 years in con
gress but is young in appearance
and action. He is not one of the
best speakers in the house, but his
remarkable readiness in debate and
quickness of retort peculiarly qualify
him for the position of floor leader.
"His selection was very gratifying
to the western members as the east
had obtained the speakership and
the republican floor leader in the
senate was also from that section."
