5 SUFFRAGE LEADERS' ACT IS SURPRISE SOME NOTABLE FIGURES SNAPPED AT NEW HAVEN TRIAL. Selection of Republicans to Lead Fight in Democratic Congress Unusual. DISTRUST SEEMS EVIDENT TITE SUNDAY OREGOXIAX, POETLAJfD OCTOBER 31, 1915. upreswion Given That Congressional Union Is Hostile to Chamber lain, Though He Worked - " for Resolution. OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash ington, Oct. 28. Members of the Con gressional Union, A'hich is leading the tight for a suffrage amendment to the Constitution, have selected two Republi cans to introduce and manage their legislation in Congress this Winter, Senator Sutherland, of Utah, and Rep resentative Mondell, of Wyoming. In view cf the fact that both houses are Democratic, and the further fact that all suffrage resolutions will go to committees presided over by Democrats and having a majority of Democratic members, the selection of these leaders occasioned surprise, for it clearly in dicated lack, of faith in Democrats, who normally would take charge of such legislation in a Democratic Congress. The Congressional Union never has abandoned its idea that it must look mainly to Republicans to pass the suf frage resolution. Union Ignoren Chamberlain, " We. : have scored a great success," said Miss Alico Paul, chairman of the executive committee of the Congres sional Union, "in getting so learned a lawyer as Senator Sutherland to present to the Senate and work for the amend ment to remove from the ballot the qualification of sex." She makes no reference to Senator Chamberlain, of Oregon, who led their tight in the 63d Congress, but the fact that he has been dropped and that a Republican has been selected by the Union to succeed him carries the im pression' that the Union is still hostile to the Oregon Senator. It opposed him lik his campaign for re-election. Tactically, the Congressional Union may have erred in asking Republicans to manage their resolution before a Democratic Congress. Action may be construed as a discourtesy to Senator Thomas, of Colorado, chairman of the woman suffrage committee of the Senator, and to Representative Webb, chairman of the House committee on judiciary. These two Democrats pre side over the committees to which the suffrage resolutions will be referred, and unless thqy delegate the honor to others, they will handle the resolu tions. Home Chairman Foe of Suffrage. Representative Webb voted against the resolution at the last session. Mr. Webb naturally would not be expected to introduce the suffrage resolution, but there are Democrats on his committee who do favor suffrage, and the fact that these Democrats were ignored may tend to stir up strife. So fare as Senate leadership is con cerned, however, the stand of the Con gressional Union is puzzling, for not only is Senator Chamberlain a believer in woman suffrage, but so is Senator Thomas, who is chairman of the com mittee. When a new leader is to be chosen, courtesy would require that Senator Thomas .iave opportunity to decline. Moreover, the fact that Sena tor Chamberlain led the suffrage fight in the last Senate would ordinarily give him the right of assuming leadership again in the coming Congress, especially as he has declared his adherence to the cause, notwithstanding the fact that the suffragists opposed him a year ago. Other Members Not Barred. The mere fact that the Congressional Union has selected Sutherland and Mon dell to lead their tight does not give these Republicans the right of leader ship if Democrats undertake to sup plant them. But these members have accepted the- commission and will in troduce the Anthony resolution. On the other hand, the selection of these two Republican leaders does not bar any other member from introducing the same or similar resolutions and there is no guarantee that the Sutherland and Mondell resolutions will be the ones reported. The probabilities are that the Con gressional Union by the course it has taken has alienated votes from the resolution. WAR BLUNDERS SCORED VISCOUNT MILKER SAYS SECRECY IS ROOT OF EVIL.

SACRIFICE IS AVOIDED Principle or Federal Aid for Na tional Guard to Be Itecognizcd and That Branch of Service Is Not to Snffor. WASHINGTON. Oct. 30. Support of the National guardsmen of the country for the Administration's defense plans, including the formation of a conti nental armv. was virtually assured to day at the conclusion of a two-day con ference between Secretary Garrison and members of the executive committee of the National Guard Association, and the National Militia Board. Some opposition to the continental army scheme developed yesterday when the conference began, but Secretary Garrison was succssful in convincing the guardsmen of the wisdom of the plan and also that no steps would be spared to promote the interests of the National Guard because of the new Plan. v General Foster, of the Florida Na tional Guard, chairman of the executive committee, issued the following state ment: "The report of the executive com mittee, which has been prepared here and which will be submitted to the convention of the National Guard As sociation, which meets In San Francisco November 9 to 11, will recite in detail the history of the sustrested military i..ii9iiitn and will outline the general military policy which the Secretary of War now proposes. "It concludes with a recommendation that the National Guard Association address its best effort to securing the introduction in and passage by the next Congress of a bill to improve the efficiency of the militia and embodying the principle of Federal compensation for military service, this having been r,i on hv all miltarv authorities as necessary to enable this branch of the service to realize the standards now prescribed for it by law. "The National Guard officers' meet ing here felt that they could not. in their representative capacity, give ex nrpeinn with reirard to all of the pro posals embraced in the plan of the Secretary of War until after such plan has been fully considered by the or ganization which they reprctent, but from individual expressions it may safelv be assumed that the sentiment of the National Guard will be favorable to the recommendations or the hecre tary with regard to a necessary In crease in the standing Army and also to his proposal for the formation of a force of citizen soldiery which has been referred to as a continental army and which it is proposed to organize undr the constitutional provision granting the Federal Government au thority to raise and maintain armies."

BOAST PROVED IDLE Rural Free Delivery Not Im proved as Promised. SERVICE IS MUCH REDUCED Effort to Institute Competitive Basis, Instead or Salaries, to Be Made by Burleson - Before the Xext Congress. . . OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash ington,-Oct. 28. Secretary of Commerce master - General Burleson that he would be able to reduce the cost of rural free delivery $3,000,000 and. at the same time maintain more routes and serve more people than ever .before does not bear close ecrutinv. It is true there are more rural routes and that rural routes are serving more patrons, but it also is true that On a large number of old routes service has been reduced from six to three times a week. Practically every new route es tablished during the past year, except me recently established, automobile routes, has been a tri-weekly service and not on the former daily basis. When Congress reconvenes Mr. Burleson will attempt again to get leg islative authority for another assault on the rural service. He intends to re vive his recommendation that the rural service be put on the competitive basis. the same as star route service. It was Mr. Burleson's recommendation of such legislation that- prevented the passage of the postoffice appropriation bill at the laet session of Congress. and the opposition which then killed his scheme will rise in the new Con gress. . Reduction of rural service to. a trl weekly basis was ordered by the-Postmaster-General because, under the law he was permitted to cut the salaries of rural carriers in two where the serv ice was on alternate days, instead of daily. By this means, the Postmaster- General -was able to evade the dictates of Congress, which had taken a stand for better pay for rural carriers. The emergency postoffice appropriation bill, passed when it was evident the regular bill could not pass, raised the maximum pay of rural carriers to $1200 on standard routes. Mr. Burle son, since that enactment, in establish ing routes of standard length osdered tri-weekly service,-and the carriers on such routes accordingly . receive only $600. i Train Hits Auto, Killing Two.
