of the recognition of special ability
in aaaignlng republican eenatora to
committee* wan in the case of Hon.
Frank B. Kellogg of Minnesota, who
waa given a place on the groat In-
terstate commerce committee. Mr.
Kellogg probably knows a* much
about the administration of the rail-
road of the country as any other
man. He acted as special counsel
for the Interstate commerce commis-
sion in the investigation of the liar-
rlman roads, and as special counsel
for the United States In the action
to diasolvn the Union 1*0011)0 and
Southern l*ac!flc morger. The expe-
rience he gained in those cases will
render hie opinions on Interstate
commerce matters invaluable to the
senate Senator Kellogg has served
aa president of the American Bar as-
sociation, and is considered one of
tho foremost lawyers of the country.
That fact gained for him a place on
the Joint committee on the revision

Annuity for Civil War Officer*.
Congressman Charles H. Royland
of Pennsylvania, was the author dur-
ing the last congress of a bill propos-
ing to create a "Civil war office re'
annuity roll." In his measure he
fixed a monthly payment of from $46
to $76 per month, according to rank,
for officers who served two years or
more, and correspondingly lees pay,
down to $35. for those who served
not lees than six months, or received
certain specified Injuries, finch of-
ficers would be entered on tbs “an-
nuity roll" and not be entitled to a
pension. Mr. Rowland discovered
that in 1828 and 1832, about 60
years after the close of the revolu-
tion. congress paaeed a law providing
that surviving officers of that war
should receive full pay for life. A
similar time has elapsed since the
civil war, and Representative Row-
land is of the opinion that we should
make as generous provision for the
surviving officers of that war.

after the war Congressman Charles
A. Nichols of Michigan proposes that
all consular officers of the United
States shall be instructed by the a«o-
rotary of state to gather information
regarding trade conditions in the
countries at war aa they are likely
to be affected by the restoration of
peace. In a resolution which he in-
troduced in the lost congress Mr
Nichols also provides that such in-
formation shall bo published and dis-
tributed to American manufacturers
in order that they may be advised
of what to expect following the in-
dustrial readjustment Representa-
tive Nichols believes that such a
course would go far to anticipate the
tremendous changes that are bound
to take place when peace is declared

Support for the l*ro*i<lmt—And Its
Tho opening session of tho new
congress finds both parties ready to
support the president in the crisis
which now really exists. Republicans,
rejoicing that Mr. Wilson ban at
length come to a realization of facts,
will stand with him for every meas-
ure of affirmative action which he
purposes to take. Democrats, re-
gretful perhaps that he has been on
able longer to “keep us out of war."

The president will thus become in
fact whAt a president should always
be—the brad of the nation.
It Is, nevertheless, highly neces-
sary to understand that this era of
good feeling toward the president
will be inaugurated and that it will
continue only on the basis of active
and efficient leadership on hie part.
All republicans and many democrats
will balk at any further display of a
policy of concealment and inactivity
If we are to have war with Ger-
many. it must be real war. It must
be fought with bullets of lead as well
as with ballets of silver. It must be
a war to punish German assault upon
our neutral rights as well as a war
of defense against possible German
attack by land or sea.
This will involve more than a loan
or a gift of money to the allies, more
than a patrol in the Atlantic, more
than u convoy for our whips In Any

WAR WITH UKKMANV WILL UK
STHI <;<il.K Alton IDEAS. NOT
ABOVT SINKING SHIl-s.
(By Chas. Edward Russell)
Washington, D. C., March 23.—
One thing sure, most solemnly and
soberly sure—war between the United
States and Germany will be no quar-
rel between nations about the sink-
ing of ships or the breaking of some
war game rule.
It will be a struggle between Ideas,
between conceptions of civilization
and of government, between great
fundamental principles of existence.
The ship sinking may be talked
about: the struggle between ideas
will be the thing fought about.
War Already On.
The “overt act” precipitating the
struggle will be exactly like the
^hooting of the Austrian archduke.
It will he the signal to begin, but the
• ar is on already and has been oh
for ages and it is not in the power
of any nation, however much it may
love peace, to sidestep that conflict.
Tho Ideas of government and civ-
tlizatlon held by people of the United jU
States can never by any possibility JJ

There is no compromise pnanlblejft
