Wm. J. Bryan, commenting on
President Wilson’s proposed plan for
an increase in the army and navy
“From my view of the subject the
plan which he proposes is not only a
departure from cur traditionss, but a
reversal of our national policy. It is
nob only a menace to our peace and
safety, but a challenge to thp spirit
of Christianity, which teaches us to
influence others by example rather
than by exciting fear. .
“The President says we should be
prepared ‘not for aggression, but for
defense.’ That is the ground upon
which all preparation for war is
“What nation has ever prepared for
war on the theory that it was pre-
paring for aggression? It is only fair
to assume that the European rulers,
who are involved in the present war
thought that they were contributing
toward- the maintenance • of peace
when they were making elaborate
preparations for defense. It is a false
philosophy, and being false, it inevi-
tably leads to difficulties. The
spirit that makes the individual carry
revolver—and who ever carried a
revolver except for defense ?—-leads
him not only to use it cn slight pro-
vocation, but to use language which
provokes trouble. ‘Speak softly, but
carry a big stick!’ is one of the max-
ims employed by those who put their
faith in force. There are two an-
swers to it—first, the man who speaks
softly has not the disposition to car-
ry a club, and if a man with a soft
voice is persuaded to carry a club his
voice changes as soon as he begins to
rely on the club.
“If there is any truth in our re-
ligion a nation must win respect as an
individual does, not by carrying arms,
but an upright, honorable course that
invites confidence and insures good
will. This Nation has won its posi-
tion in the world without resorting to
the habit of toting a pistol or carry-
ing a club. Why reverse our policy
at this time? The President himself
admits that there is no reason for a
change. He says:
Quotes From President’s Speech
“ ‘The country is not* threatened
from any quarter. She stands in
friendly relations with all the world.
Her resources and her self-respect,
and capacity to care for her own cit-
izens and rights are well known.’
And to make the statement more, em-
phatic, he adds: ‘There is no fear
“If we’re not threatened by any na-
tion, if our relations with all nations
are friendly, if everybody knows that
we’re able to defend ourselves if nec-
essary, and if there is no fear among
us, why is this time chosen to revo-
lutionize our national theories and to
exchange our poliev for the policy of
Europe ? Why abandon the hope that
we have so long entertained of setting
an example to Europe ? Why encour-
age the nations of Europe in their
fatal folly by imitating them? Why
impose upon the Western Hemisphere
a policy so disariterous ? May we not
expect Latin America to be stimulat-
ed to preparat:on if we enter upon a
new era of preparation? And will
not such a policy make conflictcs be-
tween these Republics more probable?
“We shall do infinite harm to thq
neighboring nations* as well as to our-
selves if we are drawn into this policy
which provokes war by preparation,
which is impossible without a large in-
crease in taxation and the arousing of
a military system which sets up false
standards of honor. We are now
spending more than $250,000,000 a
year on preparedness—ten times as
much as we are spending on agricult-
ure—and I feel sure that the taxpay-
ers are not in favor of increasing this
sum at this time when a change is not
only unnecessary,"but a menace to our
Says America Without an Enemy
“There has not been a time in fifty
years when there was less reason to
add to the expenses of the army and
navy, for wo are not only without an
uenemy, but our prepanlncss is in-
creasing relatively as dthor nations
exhaust themselves. And there never
was a time, and there never has been a
time in our whole history, when our
duty to the world more imperatively
demanded self-restraint and the coun-
sels of peace.
“I hope the President will not be
deceived by the atmosphere of the
Manhattan Club. That is the one
place in the United States where the
Mammon worshiping portion of the
Democratic party meets to exchange
compliments—there is no group far-
ther removed from the sentiment of
the masses, whether you measure that
sentiment by economical, social or re-
ligious standards.” * tSmEat.. ■

Washington, Nov. 5.—An outline of
the army’s part in the national de-
fense program to be submitted to
Congress in December by the Admin-
istration was ma.de public tonight by
Secretary Garrison disclosing official-
ly for the first time details of the
plan to raise a great continental or
citizen army to supplement the reg-
In brief it is proposed to increase
the regular army from 108,008 to
141,843* officers and men (chang-
ing the term >of enlistment from four
years on furlough to two years with
the colors and four years on fur-
lough); to organize a Federal citi-
zen army of 400,000 (to be enlisted
133,000 a year for three years); to
strengthen the State militia by in-
creased appropriations a.ncL-closer co-
operation, and to spend $20,000,000 a
year for four years on coast defenses
and $26,000,000 a year for four
years in the accumulation of reserve
material for use by a force of 500,000
Have Consulted Specialists
Mr Garrison says that the framers
of the new policy are fully conscious
of the possibility of formulating mil-
itary policies much better fn theory
but that “after concentrated consider-
ation of existing legal and other con-
ditions they think it will be found
that almost insuperable objections
and difficulties arise in carrying into
practical operation suggestion that
from the military standpoint might
otherwise be very acceptable.”
The statement reveals that in the
preparation of their plans, War De-
partment officials have called into con-
sultation specialists in various lines
of private industry.
“It has bean proposed,” it says, “to
make available in time of need the
services of those in certain kinds of
employment requiring special knowl-
edge and skill, such as railroad men,
bridge builders, engineers of all de-
scriptions, etc., and leading men in
these lines and professions have been
collaborating with the War Depart-
ment in an endeavor to formulate by
legislation or administrative action an
acceptable and useful plan with re-
Suggestion for Employers
“In this connection and because of
the patriotic spirit thus displayed it
seems desirable to say that if those
who are ;the employers of the young
men of the country can not by reason
of age or situation in life give their
personal service, they can do that
which will be equally useful by en-
couraging in every way the participa-
tion of those in their employ in the
plan of national defense. If they
would so arrange their business that
a certain proportion of those whom
they engage could undertake this na-
tional service without sacrificing
their personal interests, those who
did this thing would be acting in the
most public spirited and patriotic
The citizen army would be recruit-
ed throughout the entire country and
organized in geographical divisions.
Its members, though enlisted for six-
year terms, would be required to re-
port for intensive training only for
short periods each year for three
years and during the remaining three
years would be furloughed subject to
call to the colors in time of war. In
addition to officers who may be de-
veloped in the course of its operations
Mr. Garrison proposed to draw officers
for this force from men who have
served in the National Guard or the
regular army, or who have been train
ed in private military schools. Indi-
viduals or organizations in the exist-
ing National Guard free to do so
would be permitted to come into the
citizen army without change of rank.
For the next fiscal year, when it is
proposed to put this new policy into
operation, Congress will be asked to
appropriate $182,717,036; the second
year the amount will be $212,815,879;
the third year $228,315,879, and an-
nually thereafter if the policy were
continued without change the army
budget would be-$1^2,234,559.
The addition to the regular army
contemplated are ten regiments of in-
fantry, four regimtns of field artil-
lery, fifty-two companies * of coast
artillery, fifteen companies of engi-
neers and four aero squadrons to be
brought in half next year and half
the following year.
This plan when completed would
place in the Panama Canal zone, Ha-
waiian Islands, the Philippines and
Alaska 1,453 officers and 47,456 en-
listed men. In the Continental
United State? there would be in the
regular establishment 2,956 officers
and 66,968 men, including eleven and
two-thirds regiments of cavalry, in-
fantry, seven regiments of field ar-
tillery, 170 companies of coast artil-
lery and about 4,000 officers and men
in engineer ami signal corps.
