LONG TRIP AT
One Hundred and Sixty-Two
Congressmen Expect to
Make 60-Day Journey to
Orient on Army Transports.
MOST ELABORATE JUNKEf
EVER TAKEN BY CONGRESS.
Men Believe Cost, Which Will
Run Into Hundreds of Thou-
v sands, Will Be Offset by i
Store of Knowledge Gained.
Chfcuco Tribune-Omaha B .Leaved Wire.
Washington, April 21. One hun
dred and sixty-two senators and
representatives have tentatively ar
ranged to take themselves and" their
families on a 60-day junket to the
Orient, virtually' at government 'ex
pense' on one or more army trans
ports. The party is expected to
number 500 or more. -
The trip, if present plans do not
miscarry,-promises to be the most
elaborate junket ever put on by con
gress. Its purposes e somewhat
obscure , but a veritable thirst for
knowledge ttbout the far eastern sit
uation seems to have developed
among ewngressmen since the proj
ecfwas announced. Many mem
bers Relieve, theywill be ble to leg
islate with far greater intelligence
pre matters' appertaining to the Pa
cific ocean, if theytake the trip.
-. Cost Will Be Large.
.The junket will take in Hawaii,
Guam,, the Philippines, Japan, China,
Korea and perhaps tortch it -Vladivostok.,
fts cost to the. government 1
w.ill run high into the hundreds of
thousands of dollars, but members
who -take it are satisfied that this
will not be inconsistent with-their
economy preachments in view of the
store of knowledge they expect to
. Praciically the only expense of the
trip to the .members of congress will
be $1.25 a day rier head for sub
sistence, or about $75, per person for
the entire trip. It is expected that
the officials at the various ports
they will visiwill be authorized by
their government to entertain the
congressional party royally, so that
Lthe cost of travel will be practically
nothing. ' -
Randall Is Sponsor.
Representative Randall, tne pro
hibition congressman from Califor
nia, is . the chie sponsor for , the
tfip.'He said that approximately
85 democratic members of the
house and 65 re'publican members
and 12 senators had tentatively ac
cepted invitations on behalf of their
families and themselves to take the
trip. He expects, however,, tbat the
list will be. cut doton to about 60
members 'and their families when
the junket is, ready to start.
The War department is showing
a gratifying spirit of co-operation
in )arranging the trip. It stands
ready to furnish the transports nec
essary to carry all senators, congress
men and their relatives who wish
to' take the trip, provided a good
reason for using the transports can)
Those 'who are looking forward
to the trip heard disconcerting news
when ' it was reported that Presi-
Wilson is thinking up ways
of keeping congressmen the job dur
ing the summer and fall campaign.
This may force some curtailment of
the intinerary, but will not halt the
trip, it was stated.
