SCALE OF PAY IS FIXED Secretary Xotes That Most Men Quit After Only One Enlistment, but Believes They Would Favor New Method. "WASHINGTON, Dec 24. Creation of a naval reserve from among honorably discharged enlisted men of the Navy is proposed In a draft of an amendment to the forthcoming naval appropriation bill, which Secretary Daniels sent today to the Senate and House naval com mittees with a strong recommendation that it be adopted. "If this amendment be enacted into law," said Mr. Daniels, in a statement tonight, "two most important and nec essary means for promoting the effi ciency of the Navy will be provided, i'irst, it will make available a reserve organization of trained men to supple ment the regular establishment in time of war. Second, it will increase the efficiency of the regular Navy by offer ing a substantial Inducement to men to continue in the service for periods of 12, 16 and 20 years,'; Reservlsta Receive Part Pay. The principal features of the 'bill are as follows: Men who have had 20 years of hon orable service may, upon their own application, be transferred to the re serve on half pay; those of 16 years' service with one-third pay; those of 12 years service with one-fourth pay; those of eight years' service with $60 per annum; those of four years' service with $30 per annum, and those now in civil life who have been honorably dis charged within eight years may enlist in the naval reserve and receive pay at the rate of $12 per annum and be furnished with uniform clothing outfit Provision is made for periodical assem bling for muster. Inspection and drill. In his letter to the two committees. Secretary Daniels said: "The records of the Navy Depart ment for the last three years indicate that' there is an annual average of about 3150 men honorably discharged from the service who do not re-enlist in the Navy, but take up civil pursuits. One Enlistment Usually Enough. "The greater proportion of these men quit the service after only one enlist ment. It is believed that the legisla tion herein proposed offers an induce ment which will cause more of these experienced men to remain longer in the regular service and that practically an or tnose who do not re-enlist in the Navy will nevertheless enlist in the naval reserve. In other words, the number of men annually lost to the service will be greatly reduced. Each re-enlistment in the Navy saves the Government the cost of an outfit nf clothing, and the time and money spent in training and recruiting. The cost of an outfit furnished a recruit, $60, alone will cover the annual pay of one enlisted member of the reserve who had eight or more years of service in the Navy." Mr. Daniels gave the following fig ures showing the number of enlisted men of the Navy and their length of service on June 30, 1914: Under four years, 34,027; more than four and less than eight years, 10,909; more than eight and less than 13 years, 4529; more than 12 and less than 16 years, 1688; more than 16 and less than 19 years, 745; more than 19 and less than 22 years, 407; more than 22 and less than 25 years, 249; more than 25 and less than 28 years, 136; more than 28 years, 77; total, 52.667.- VADER CASE IS MYSTERY Xo Clew to Identity of .

United States Supreme Conrt - Decision in 16-Honr Uw Cue Invoked in JLecal Option Question. ' VANCOUVER. Wash., Dec 24. (Spe cial.) Since the Federal Court has is sued a restraining order against the county and city officials prohibiting them from putting into effect the local option law, passed at the recent elec tion, a number have wondered why the case was taken to this court, instead of to the State Court. A. L. Miller, attorney before the Fed eral Court for the Northern Brewing Company, tonight said: "The Northern Brewing Company Is an Ohio corporation. We desired to get a high authority on this question, so took It to the Federal Court. "Furthermore, the State Supreme Court had held against a feature of the 16-hour law we brought up, and this decision was reversed by the United States Supreme Court. "Congress passed a 16-hour law, al lowing ample time for the railroads to comply with its provisions. Later the state enacted a 16-hour law, but attempted to put It into effect some time before the Federal statute. "The Supreme Court of Washington upheld the state law, but this decision was reversed by the higher court, on the grounds that the extension was given in the Federal law that those af fected might adjust their affairs ac cordingly." Mayor-elect Milton Evans said today that this decision will assist materially the finances of Vancouver. Instead of returning to the saloonkeepers about $7000 for the unexpired portions of their licenses, the city' w,ill receive money from them In 1915.
