Chairman Lodge, announcing the pro

seemed essential to an intelligent Judg

treaty. Democratic members, however.

fire scenes in her latest picture. "The

that a great deal of excitement be
shown while Miss Glaum was being
rescued from a burning building. As
Is customary in the making of pictures.
the scene showing tire rescue of Miss
Glaum was made at close range, while
the extra people were not visible, but
when the time came to take them they
had somewhat lost their "pep" and en

been rescued. Miss Glaum, seeing the
situation, quickly Jumped in among

yelling at the top of her voice, thereby
attracting the attention of the crowd,

"Prussian Tendency and Spirit of
Present Courtmartial Procedure"
Declared Inhe-jntly Wrong.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. Aug. 25. Senator Chamberlain
of Oregon again has taken occasion to
let congress and the country know that
he has not abandoned his opposition to
the war department as it is now man
aged nor relaxed his determination to
overturn the present courtmartial sys
tem. In laying before the senate a letter
from former acting Judge Advocate
General Samuel T. Ansell, who was the
foe of war department autocracy and
military injustice. Senator Chamber
lain said:
"I feel it proper to say here and now
that the war department has been en
tirely unfair to anyone who has un
dertaken to present a view which dif
fers from the view of the judge advo
cate general. That department has in
most unusual ways put its whole
power behind an effort to sustain the
present military courtmartial system
and the articles of war. I feel that the
methods pursued are wrong. I have
since the war began felt that the sys
tem and its enforcement were inher
ently wrong for this enlightened day
and generation and that a modification
ought to be made, although I insist
that the judge advocate general had
the power, if he had seen fit to exercise
It, without any additional legislation.,
to modify or revise courtmartial sen
tences, notwithstanding his present
opinion to the contrary.
Crowder's Service Conceded.
"General Crowder rendered the coun
try a most distinguished service in the
matter of the selective service law and
the efforts which he made to put it
into effect, and I commend the work he
did, -and the country has commended it;
but in that law as originally prepared
the hand of the military autocrat was
in evidence, and the committees of the
house and senate gave it its touch with
the civil population of the country.
While General Crowder is entitled to
credit for its enforcement, he is not
entitled to any credit for having re
lieved the original measure of its Prus
sian tendency and spirit. He Is at
heart a military autocrat. To him the
enlisted man is a mere pawn upon the
chessboard.
"I had many conferences wit - Gen
eral Crowder during the period of the
war, and I told him and other men con
nected with the military establishment
more than once that he and they did
not get the civilian viewpoint of mat
ters that affect the nonmilitary popu
lation. Now. when anyone dares in
dulge In criticism of this system of
military justice or shall I say in
justice? General Crowder shows the
same Prussian bent of mind. I dared
criticise and drew down upon my inno
cent head his unreasoning wrath.
Good Manners Questioned.
"Recently I happened to pass him en
gaged in conversation with a distin
guished member of the military affairs
committee of the house. The latter
stepped up and greeted me cordially.
The former did not even turn in ac
knowledgement of an introduction to
me, thus proving both his entire lack
of good manners and his resentment of
criticism of what he stood for. I said
then, at the suggested Introduction,
that although I knew the geneleman,
he did not seem to know me, and that I
nad no regreis uvw -wi. ihwuch, j
had I. It simply liiustraiea anu i icii
of the incident merely for that pur
pose the character of the man who,
if -he had seen fit, might have allevi
ated the suffering and humiliation that
fell to the lot of thousands of Ameri
can boys. He brooks no criticism.
He allows no differences with him.
He must be supreme.
This Incident Is not going to deter
me from following the uath I mapped
out a good while ago, and that is to go
to the bottom and, if possible, remedy
this vicious military system.
"Some time ago I showed from au
thentic sources that there have been
more than ",22,000 trials by inferior
courts in the army since the war begun
and up to the armistice, more than
22.000 general courtmartial trials for
the same period, and that the average
general courtmartial sentence oi con
finement alone, including the most
trivial cases, reaches a period of seven
Case not lei lonciuuea.
This of course excludes sentences of
life imprisonment and deatn. i snail
-oii Attention to some of these cases
later in the session to snow now un
just they are. Altnougn tne system is
perfect, according to the secretary of
war and the judge advocate general.
although they have undertaken to as
sure the parents of the young men of
the army that everything was all right,
yet tome 4000 of these courtmartial
sentences have been reduced by a
board created by the secretary of war
from an aggregate of 28,000 years to
something like 6i00 years.
There is Still room tor improvement.
What is even worse than all these sen
tences Is the fact -that arter an nave
been Imposed the most snameiui Bru
tality has been practiced against mili
tary prisoners, no matter how splendid
the men's records may have been nor
how slight their breaches of discipline."
