What About Our Army?
Wnshiniftun fllApatchíA forrcaat comrfilttee hlllA for
tb cuiiAlderntlon of congreias In which will be contm-
plAlid thi' increaAP of tin- regular army to between
160.000 and 20U.0O0 men and the fedpralhuulon of the
rtatlnnal gunrd under a military pay act. It goea with-
out Nuylnx that any effort mude to Increase the atajidlna
rmy of the United Htalea will meet with stubborn oppo-
sition though the proposal that the national guard he
federalized for the purpose of defense will receive the
ready support of both the house and senate.
The Morning Times admits Its partiality to the aban-
doned continental army plans of Mr. Garrison but since
ther' Is no likelihood of their revival there Is nothing
li ft fur us to choose between. Federalizing the national
guard doesn't exact l)1 appeal to us but such an not In
conjunction with an appreciable Incresss In the regular
army will at least be a step In the right direction which
of course. 1h the national defense.
There are any number of objections to putting our
dependence in the national guard chief among which Is
the one raised by Mr. Uarrlson who speculating upon
the invisibility of the United Unites having to uphold tho
Mimroe Doctrine after the war In Kurope cited tha
fact that the national guard would not be available for
nervlco outside the United States until after a declara-
tion of war. It may be however that in reorganising
the national guard and strengthening the army that
congress will make some provision for such an emer-
gency. As a matter of fitot the greatest objection to
the abandonment of the continental army plans and
the substitution of the federalization of the national
guard plans is the possibility of the opposition overcom-
ing the advocates of an Increased standing army.
There Is no doubt of there being serious opposition
to Increasing the regular army. Democrats for tha
most part have always objected to a large standing
army. Whether or not they will permit their enthusiasm
for preparedness to overcome their past prejudice and
unite In providing for an Increased standing army is
problematical. Already many prominent Democrats
throughout the country arc advocating a greater navy
and. If anything a smaller standing army. Consequently
for the United States to put her dependence In the na-
tional guard without the additional defensive strength of
an Increased regular army seems absurd. That is why
the Morning Times favors the continental army plans of
Mr. Ciarrison because we fear that the plana for an In-
creased regular army may go astray.
At any rate the Morning Times urges congress lo
carefully consider the consequences of placing the de-
pendence of the country in time of need solely In the
national guard. The regular army should bs recruited
to fully 200000 men. and better still 260000. With
such an army reinforced by the rsorganized national
guard ull would be well. With the regular army in its
present helpless condition however and reinforced only
by the national guard the dependence of the nation
would have lo be placed solely in the navy.
The people will yt realiza what It meant to them
to have Mr. Garrison resign from tha cabinet tor with
his resignation went his plans for a continental army.

A GentlcattacUa's Dud.
(Louisville Courier. Journal.)
The National twlatlon of Merchant Tailors In
convention sssemMpd In . Louis decides that to dress
as g gentleman a mn matt have as an hródiiathle mini-
mum fourteen suite of clothes H he Is ambitious to
he known as a well-dreeeed gentleman he may ord r
100 pslrs of trousers at a time as Count Bonl de Cactel-
lane did. or was reportad ae doing when he was newly
rich as a recti It of marriage. Or he may adopt the
kingly custom of wearing a suit of clothes once char-
Bctertetlc so fashion writers said of the late Bdward
VI I nf Great Britain. Of course there art Attn who
would try to break the head of anyone who should mske
bold to suggest that they are not gentlemen who would
never know where to find anything they possess If they
pockets and to whom a silk hat la a thing to keep on
hud fourtren suits of clothes esch with fifteen or twenty
n ahelf fnr use on state ooeasiona. aa It was to Emperor
Menellk of Abyssinia after he acquired ons aa a gift
from the head nf a delegation of dlpomatlsts and busi
ness men who visited his espita! In the Interest of trade
treaties. But while It Ia futile even dangerous fnr
n tailor unattended and unarmed to try to convince
such persons of erroneous estimate of themsalvee an
association of tailors armed with authority and address-
ing Itself to the abstract question "what Is a gentleman?"
can render a decision that will be a safe guide for thoce
whr) would acquire gentility at the tailor's shop.
A tailor-made gentleman must have 12.080 worth of
clothing exclusive of what the haberdashers call "gents'
furnishings." It must Inolude an M0 white Tusado suit
for warm months when multitudes of common percons
contend themselves with blue cerge and defy anyone
who suggests that (fog days temperature and "dressing"
In the evening are to be considered in conjunction by
persons outside of a lunatic asylum. It must Include
a blanket cost to be thrown over the shoulders of the
golfers by his valet presumably as he la making the
nineteenth hole and nt a timp when scrubs and lushers
are thinking of going Into tha club after a drink. Such
a coat can he had at 85 If one must needs be economi-
cal. A man who would he a gentleman In winter must
hsvc a top coat lined with mink skin or Persian lamb.
Hoi Polio! wear coats lined with "muakrat" "coon
or pretty nearly anything else with hair on it at from
40 to .1100. A gentleman's fur coat costs 1100. If It
were sold at $29 99 he would not buy It and hope to
remain a gentleman.
A gentleman must have a morning riding suit and
an afternoon riding frock. He would be a "man"
merely or a "person" If he should be asen In the rid-
ing suit at 12:16 p. m. or in the riding frock at 11:59.
But a gentleman knowc that Instinctively and lc In no
danger nf making mistakes.
A gentleman has ten overcoats. Should he not have
also a light raincoat for light rains a mist coat for
ndxts and a cloudburst coat for cloudbursts?. But as
the tailors do not particularize In the matter of ttw aln-
costs It may be that a gentleman remains u his club
or In bed wiu-n it rains. Or does he wear a shower
"A part of the day was devoted to discussion of the
sdvlsablllty of recommending pink silk corsets for men
but no action was taken."
Action will be awaited with nerve-consuming Interest
by sll gentlemen and by all who want to be gentlemen.
Unadvised a man might buy a half dozen or so mauve
cerlsp. roan or flea-bitten-gray corsets only to find next
day that watermelon pink is the only shade which a
gentleman may wear. His corsets would then be a dead
loss. No man other than a gentleman would wear a
corset. They would not fit the women of a gentleman's
family and you couldn't give 'em away.
Laws and Women's Clothes
Does the veteran newspaper reader remember Repre-
sentative Timberlake the gentleman from Jackson? He
is the man who some 20 years ago Introduced the bill in
the Alabama legislature to abolish the shirt waist snd
to make Its wearing an offense against the "peace and
dignity nf the state of Alabama" The newepapers of
the North and Bast took up the Anil-Shirt Waist bill
and no little fun at the expense of the Alabama effort
to regulate the wearing of clothes by tho women of the
Mr. Timberlake has passed from the scenes of leg-
islative activity bul his spirit still goes marching on in
the halls where laws are rilada. Captain W. M. Meyers
a member of the Virginia legislature bj even more
anxious to protect the young men from the Insidious
wiles of the daughters of Eve than was even Mr. Tim-
berlake of Alabama. While the Alabama colon was con-
corned only In stopping the advance of the dangerous
shirt waist then coming Into popularity Mr. Meyers
of Virginia lays down a code for regulating all apparel
Captain Meyers does not Insist that the ladles cover
their faces but he cets the limits of personal facial and
throat exposure from the forehead to three Inches of
throat. Beyond that "the peace and dlginlty of Vir-
ginia" ic offended. But the bill of Captain Meyers la
most emphatic In saying that the skirts shall not be more
ti)an four inches from the ground. That is the one ob-
ject of the bill; the chort cklrt the high boot and the
lrrldeacent stocking must be abolished.
The other very vital feature of Captain Meyers bill is
to abolish these dresses which pretende to conceal yet
all but reveal. There muct be nothing transparent; all
must be dense and opaque. There arc to be no Inter-
stices no transparencies The dlaphonouc gown la an
abomination In the sight of the Virginia legislator.
And all of this is done as Captain Meyers said "to
protect the young men." frankly the differing reform-
ers confuse us. We had been taught that the abomina-
tion of the age was the ctreet corner loafer the mashsr
who stood and watched the parade of feminine beauty
go by on the avenue. We had thought that he was the
individual to be abolished; an idler smirking at ths girls
who go by. on-
But no he is the man to be protected. The chort
ckirt. the dlaphonouc gown and the high heeled shoes
are worn for his destruction and he must be protected.
We will remind Captain Meyers that the Hon. Mr.
Timberlake a good man. but mistaken has disappeared
from the light of fame; he lc gone but the chlrt waist
goee marching on and on. Regúlate by law the wear-
ing of woman's apparel it can't be done. To dam
Niagara Kails with a fish nei would be quite as easy.
A Paramount Issue.
During the coming campaign for the governorship
there are indications that the paramount issue will be
not prohibition but the Robertcon law and Us adversary
the Gibson bill.
Governor Ferguson has sent out s letter to his po-
litical friends notifying them that he will soon begin
his campaign. And he says that he expectc to base his
fight on ths principles of the Glbeon bill.
Senator McNealuc has taken steps to gather his co-
horts to oppose the principles that the governor es-
pouses. The matter of legislation on the insurance question
is one In which the people are very much interested
With It as tho paramount Issue the state ought to be
able to get W ry lively pollUoal fight.

RICH WOMEN HARM POOR GIRLS.
I wonder did you ver count the value of
one human rite
or sum the infinite amount of one heart'
And the weight of one lire's venture."
It Isn't that rich women in general
haven't big heart which ire filled with
pity ror lhler pror helpless sisters snd de-
aire to aid them but they do not know how
to go shout II. The plans or some rich
women to aid poor girl would mike one
A group or New York women wives or
multimillionaires met at a luncheon at the
Waldorf. Astorli to discuss this absorblna
question. All sorts of ways and means
were introduced lo better the little girls
of :he tenement. The plan hit upon which
seemed must leaslble wa thai It would be
a splendid deed of charity tor each woman
to take a poor little girl into her home giv-
ing her a long vacation rree rrom care
with all the advantages or wealth about her.

dles over their chocolate and peppermint
They were very enthusiastic when thc5

last snd all the time is with poor girls
struggling with poverty. Yet I had to set
my veto against the schema for the fol-
lowing reasons: In the first place. II would
be a dangerous undertaking to lift a young
glEi who wa wholly unprepared for It
from want to wealth. Youth quickly adapts
Itself to change of circumstances. Enter-
ing a new lire leaving tbe old one behind
would be a wonderful tranilUon If the. new
lire or hipplnei was to Int. Never having
been surrounded with pleasure ind splen-
dor very poor young girl do not know
what it 1 like and therefore never algh
A little knowledge li s dangerous thing.
Arter raving once tasted tbe fruits or
wealth like a tiger that tistes blood ihe
ever afterward would thirst for It. When
year or to ha elipsed the society wom-
an grows tired of playing benefartor. she
closes her house and goes south or abroad
ror an extended ty. She make the girl a
present or pretty clothes slie ha worn and
send her back to her home In the tene-
ment. Instead or doing the girl a ktndnei in
introducing her to a lire or wealth she has
done her a world or harm. That child will
never be satliried after that with homely
humble toll that pay for a metl with
honest-hearted kuiMk or the companions
or other day. Ever after she will ace life
in a raise light. Toil will be Irksome. Her
existence will be mide up or Ugh tear
and repining. She will think the only
automobile lying in bed till high noon
her breakrast served In her boudoir.
Her Idea or manhood will be a false stan-
dard. She will think that a man's liche
can cover all his faults. If a woman takes
a poor child Into her home it ihould be
with Ihe Idea that ahe shall be taught some
useful occupation to aid her In her arter
stmgglei. She should not be permitted to
be sn onlooker on the rrlvollty of life.
Such plan would benefit a poor girl. She
would bless the woman rcr giving her an
opportunity to make something or her fu
turo whereby sho could not only help her-
seir but the needy ones at .home. Better to
tart an employment school where the
would gain all or the advantage and none
or the disadvantage or the charity.
