lic Briefly, tho plnn calls for tho In

Last year Congress appropriated $115.

a joi-t ron nuYAN.
Mr. Bryan'B opposition to mllltnry force
receives this Jolt In almost tho opening
paragraph of Secretary Garrison's report:
"Tho necessity or a nation having a
Xorco commensurate with Its responsibil
ity is demonstrated by every -correct
process- of reasoning founded upon fact.
This 13 so whether the subject Is consid
ered In tho light of tho philosophy of
government or of history. The use of
force Is tho Inherent essenco of govern
ment. The very term itself Is explicit
government tho right or power to com
pel obedience to law. Where thero is no
force to compel such obedience thnt Is,
to govern there Is anarchy. Individuals
sHup the right of unregulated actions
when they form themselves Into or be
corho subject to a government. Tho prog
ress nnd advancement of that which Is
summed up In the word 'civilization' have
been mado possible holelv because of
government. Unless tho Individual Is so
curq In his person and his property ho
has- neither time nor Inclination to de
voto himself to the cultivation of the
incritoli moral or spiritual side of his na
ture. That security Is secured to him
by -sovernment. and government can only
meet Its responsibility of assurance by
tho possession of sufficient force to se
cure nnd preserve It."
Holding to the ancient prophecy that
thero would bo wnrs nnd rumors of wars,
nnd that nation would rise asnlnst nation
and kingdom against kingdom. Secretary
Garrison boldly asserts that "weakness
inevitably results In overthrow, ns tho
nbtuidnnt Instances of history demon
strate, both with respect to Individuals,
cities and nations." Continuing Mr. Gar
rison says, "If we should properly pre-
paro our minds to be strong, so that wo
can reject evil, we should likewise make
our physical force strong In order that
wo may maintain the right as against
thoso who would physically Impose the
wrong upon us."
Mr. Garrison declares that those who
reajly fear militarism should bo thfi
strongest advocates of reasonable prepa
ration as "tho preventive of militarism."
He. moreover, asserts that the sensible
advocate of preparedness does not claim
that preparedness prevents war. He says,
however, that it tends to prevent war,
and In many Instances has been demon
strated to have prevented It
"rUGHTDOKRS MUST PREPARE."
"So long as right and wrong exist In
thef world," continues Mr. Garrison,
"llfero will bo an inevitable conflict be
tween them. The rlghtdoera must be pre
pared to protect and defend the right as
against the wrong. Their preparation
will tend to prevent tho triumph of
wrong, and In those Instances In which It
does not prevent tho pttempt It can pre
vent the sjccesa of the attempt. Wisdom
demanda precaution; precaution demands
preparation; preparation la Bgainst the
day of evil from any quarter."
Mr Garrison lane plain Issue with
those who hold that the cause of
arbitration will ha advanced "if wo re
frain, frpm adopting a proper military
policy but will be set back, if we do so.
"This belief," he says, "seems to rest
upon the idea that If we are feeble and
weak In action, we will be strong nnd
pessuasive in counsel, that by avowedly
neglecting to prepare to. protect our
rights we will be better able to secure
their protection by appeal, by arbitra
tion or by argument
Aa showing our present woeful un
priparedness Mr. Garrison points out that
all, be nation posseises outside the stand
ing army is "a statute prescribing how
volunteers may be raised In tha event
of war" He contrasts this with the
proposed system under which the country
Would have a forte "already organized,
already clothed and armed and officered,
wh,jcb bas- been to a certain extant
disciplined and trained " and declares
tb "advantage thereof over the other
s!tuattpn is literally Incalculable " He

HOSTILITY AND SARCASM
IN LONDON PRESS COMMENT
LONDON, Dec. 10.
Angry comments In tho London press
today on the German Chancellor's speech
were mingled with sarcastic shots nnd
declarations that "tho Chancellor merely
repeated the old bluff nnd brag."
"He had tho temerity to warn us that
the longer the war continues the harder
will be tho German terms of peace." said
tho Dally Express, "and this In tho face
of common knowledge that Germany Is
necessarily growing weaker every day
and less able to carry out tho grandiose
plans of her rulers.
"If there was a long-sighted statesman
In Germany, he would contrive to arrive
at a settlement that would leave his coun
try powerful nnd menacing."
The Chromclo answered the German So
cialist, Doctor Scheldemann, who declared
Europe would bo ruined if the wnr con
tinued, and thnt the only victor would be
the United States.
'That, of course, Is a reflection which
Germany might have well taken to heart
before plunging Europe Into the war,"
said the Chronicle, "but It Is not nn argu
ment for stopping the war at the moment
when Its ending would be most advanta
geous to those who provoked It.

more because Bethmann-Hollweg asserts
ENTENTE CAPITALS GREET
SPEECH WITH REBUFFS
LONDON, Dec. 10.
In all the capitals of the Entente Pow
ers the peace talk of Doctor von Bethmann-Hollweg,
the German Chancellor,
met with stern rebuffs today.
The attitude of the Allied Governments
Is summed up In this laconic phrase:
"We are determined to tight It out on
this line if It takes 10 years."
In their official circles it is considered
that the best answer to the German
Chancellor is the fact that even now the
war chiefs ot the allied countries are
planning fresh campaigns by land and
Premier Asqulth of England, Premier
Brland of Franco, Premier Goremykln of
Russia and Premier Salandra of Italy
are a unit upon the question of peare.
They believe that Germany has already
passed the climax ot her military achieve
ment and that the peace talk of Doctor
von Bethmann-Hollweg Is an effort to
bring up the question of terms while
Germany is at the zenith of her achieve
ment. GERMAN CARDINAL BEARS
