a result of which Mr. Garrison left the

"So far as the military part of Na.
tional defense Is concerned, there can
b no honest or worthy solution which
does hot result In National forces un
der th exclusive control and authority
of the National Government. Any other
solution Is Illusory and not real; ap
parent and not substantial.
There la a perfectly legitimate iieia
of discussion and debate as to the
meana of obtaining these National
forces. Th proportion thereof that

from lha tn llitarv standpoint, from the
ennrlu.ion that the only measure of
National defense that possesses any
virtue Is one which produces National
iJteb; f fyslesa CrIHclseo.
"r-rom'th beginning of the Govern
men! to this time, excepting during
nerioda of actual war. tha acknowl
edged weakness and defect of the sit
uation arose out of the lack or any
system producing Iheso Federal forces.
The situation was rendered worse by
the presence of state troops, raised, of
ficered, trained and governed by the
atatee. that were assumed to be a mm
tary reliance for th Nation, when in
f .i thev are not and can never be
made lo be. Under the Constitution
of the Cnlted Stales, these state troops
must always be governed, officered
nd trained by the respective states.
"The first line of cleavage, there
fore, which most be encountered ana
dealt with by the student of the situa
tion Is between reliance upon a system
of state troops, forever subject to con
stitutional llmltallona which render
hem absolutely Insecure as a reliance
for the Nation, or rellnnco upon ra-
mtuil forces raised, officered, trained
and controlled by the National authorl-
les. t'pon this subject there doe not

Nation upon the sure foundation of Na
tional forces. If that policy Is made

military part of its National ociense.
If. however. Instead thereof a policy
Is adopted bacd upon the state troops

advance been made from the deplorable
nd Inexcusable situation In which we
ave so long been, but an effective
block has been placed across tne patn
veny toward a proper settlement. The
adoption of such a policy would serve
o delude the people inio oeneving
hat the gubject had been settled, ana
therefor required no further consld-
ration upon their part. it wouia
therefore, in my Judgment, ne innnne-
worse than an entire failure of ail
legislative enactment upon tne suo-
ect. The latter would at least leave
It open f jr future settlement.
"I. of course, am not advised aa to

laaue Clearly Drawn.
The issue must be plainly and clear
ly drawn. It has nothing whatever to
rfo with the numbers of men to be
raised or with the means of raising
them, as Mr. Hay would have it appear
that it has. It is between two bdbo
lutely different systems, one of which
la based noon the Nation undertaking
upon Ita own responsibility the raising
and management of tne iNauonm
troops: and the other of which leaves
us in the position that we have always
been in since the institution of the
Government to rely upon the states
doing these things fdr the Nation
a situation in which the Nation Is re-
lvlnir uton a. military force that it
does not raise, that it does not officer,
that It does not train, and that it aoes
not control. A mere statement of the
situation shows that the two different
oroposala are as wide apart aa any
two proposals upon any subject pos
alhlv ran he.
"Mr. llsv s proposal to Include a draft
or compulsory provision, so that at
the outbreak of war the Nation could
bring under its control these state

WALLOWA, Or.. Feb. 10. (Special.)
Tho residence of w. D. Greer in the
suburbs of Wallowa was burned to the
ground yesterday. The family was
away from home at tne time tne lire
broke out, but it is supposed it started
from a defective fireplace and had
been smouldering a long time before it
broke out. It was Impossible to get
water on the fire.

my atride, and tickled to death that,

fessional training Into real, clanking;
dollars. I made up my mind to estab
lish myself In the town for a time. I
opened an office In the hotel, rigged up
an old r o c k I n a - chair and nn up
holstered soap-box, and went after the
business like a rat-terrier.
The next day I took in $S. Out of
thin huiii 1 aent my mother 5 to help
the family In its straitened circum
stances. The other S3 I stuffed Into
The clatter of those allver pieces In
the place where coin had been absent
so long was one of the most delightful
snnndx I ever heard. It made me feel
like a man again.
Once more I looked that " ethics "
question In the fare, and had a stand
up talk with myself. I couldn't see
why, heeanse I was striking out on a
new line, I was doing anything wrong,
even if all the dentists In the world ob
jected to my peddling my good, like a
huckster. "Kthic mlsrht make pleaa
