"This is an exceptionally opportune

part of any nation against us.
.The subject itself has nothing novel

ceived the careful consideration of those
whose responsibilities or experiences
caused them to comprehend the situa

K Militarism Hat SKgested. "
"When the public opinion of this
country has determined upon what gen
eral principles Its military policy shall
be founded, there will bo no ditfioulty
in working out the details and putting
them into effect.
"Abhorrence of war and love ef peace
are thoroughly consistent with wise
military precautions. There is no issue
in this country, and there can be none,
between militarism and pacificism. No
one who is taken seriously is ever sug
sesting militarism. And no one who
suggests that peace is to be obtained
through feebleness should be listened
to The great sober ense of this coun-.
try will surely not let its direction be
deflected by so unsubstantial an ob
stacle. What we are striving for, and
what every wise, patriotic citizen

the world this matter has been taken

Principles Host Be Decided.
"The exact question for decision,
therefore, is on what principles shall
we provide for the expansion of our
military forces so as to be reasonably
prepared to meet emergencies?
"No ne seriously proposes that this
should be done by having a standing
army ef such considerable size as to
meet that need.
"But that we need more of a standing
army than we now have is a faot
patent to everyone who considers the
subject. There Is also imperative need
ef trained men in reserve to fill up the
depleted ranks of the regular Army,
and a similar reserve for the organized
"As to the numbers of the standing
army, the method ef obtaining these
reserves, the methods of expansion in

consider them at this time; they will
be properly settled by those skilled in
the military art when the general
policy has been agreed upen.
"What we laymen can do at this

wish to impress upon you to do. with
as much earnestness as I can command,
is to give this matter concentrated

ROSEBURG, Or., April 10. (Special.)
Under the terms of a legal opinion
recently rendered by AttorneyrQeneral
George M. Brown, in which he held
that a Jitney was a common carrier,
several local attorneys are of the opin
ion that persons operating these vehi
cles in Roseburg, as in other towns of
the state, have a right to haul liquor
into this eity as long as It is properly
labeled and consigned.
lti s held by the atorneys. however,
that the jitney drivers would be gov
erned by the same laws as regulate the
railroads, express companies nd other
common carriers. They would have to
keep a record of all liquor transported,
together with the names of the con
signee and consigner. quantity of
liquor and the date when it was hauled.

Washington Assessments Are
Found in Many Classes to'
Exceed Needs by Far.
RE-RATING IS AUTHORIZED
Commission Ukely to Use Power
GHren in Act Effective June 10
and Apply Results of Three -----Years'
OLYMPIA, Wash.. April 10. (Spe
cial.) Three and one-half years' ex
perience under Washington's compen
sation act, completed April 1. shows
that in all instances the rates of
assessment for industries, as fixed in
the original draft of the law, have
In many classes the legal rates of
assessment have been shown, by ac
tual experience, to be three or four
times as great as is necessary. The
Legislature this year granted to the
Industrial Insurance Commission au
thority to rerate classes in its discre
tion, and it is likely that, as soon as
the new law goes into effect, June 10,
the Commission will take advantage of
this new power.
The law roughly fixes the rate for
each class automatically. The Com
mission is required to assess each class
at the legal rate, but may drop assess
ments temporarily when the class fund
has a sufficient balance. On the other
hand, if the legal assessment for the
full 12 months should find a class with
a deficit at the end of the year, the
Commission is empowered to make a
further assessment pro rata against
ail concerns in the class.
Class C "Calls" Lead,
This has never been necessary, how
ever. The greatest number of monthly
"calls" has been made against class
No. 3. Including pile-driving, dock-excavation
work, etc., concerns in this
class being called to pay assessments
for 32 months of the 42 since the law
has been in operation. From this point
the number of monthly calls drops off
to class No. 41, including all printing
establishments, in which it has been
necessary to make assessments for only
five and one-half of the 42 months.
Class No. 10, including ail logging
and lumber manufacturing concerns,
which has 40 per cent of the accidents
of the state, has been called on for 30
months of the 42, and another three
months' call is due to be made in April,
as the balance of this class is nearly
depleted. , , ' .
The rates pf assessment specified by
law range from 1.35 to 6.50 on each
100 of payroll, but the rates that aotu
ally have been levied, en account of
the "skipping" of numerous assess
ments, range all the way from 19 cents
