THE ARMORY BILL
The Various States Should Do
UNITED STATES UNSECURE
It is Every Voter's Manifest Duty to
Vote "Yes" on the Armory Bill
Japanese Know They Could Suc
cessfully Invade Our Pacific Coast.
"Not merely a local duty but in the
strictest sense a duty to the Nation;
a duty that is clearly defined and in
disputable." Such is the contention of promient
National Guardsmen and military
authorities with reference to support
by the public of the Armory bill
which conies up for vote under the
referendum at the June election.
Without further elucidation their
views in that regard might appear
txtravagant but they supplement
their argument with an array of facts
so that the Armory bill is rapidly
gaining converts even from the ranks
cf its worstwhile enemies who admit
they have been intent in regarding
the bill from its purely economic and
Indorsements are being made gen
erally by civic, commercial, social and
religious organizations and thousands
bow realize that support of the meas
ure is a public duty. The press of
the State has taken a liberal and
broad-minded stand throughout, only
four papers out of some 3(H) in Ore
gon having been inclined to oppose
the measure and this only in a mild
In considering the Armory bill,
say conservative and fully informed
Guardsmen and military authorities
of prominence, let us lay aside the
economic side of the question for a
moment. Let us take a glance at the
changed conditions such as have
served to leave the United States in
far less secure a position than we
would care to believe. We see a
militant Nation risen to power in the
Orient. Its people are increasing ;
more rapidly than the surplus can be
taken care of. That Nation is ridden i
with dent from recent wars nut yet
is known to have $750,000,000 or
about $350,000,000 in the .war treas
ury for what? Japan has an army of
more than 1,000,000 armed and fully
trained men prepared for sen-ice at
instant's notice. Added to that is the
greatest transport fleet in the world
ready to carry large bodies of troops
to a given point at a few hours notice.
And it is not to be wondered that
such a Nation should look at our
fertile and inestisably rich Pacific
Coast with averice and envy. Nor
is it to be wondered that such a na
tion should assume the cocky attitude
towards which we have seen so much
cf in the past year. They know very
well that they could successfully in
vade our Pacific Coast and we know
it quite as well. Thoe who once
thought it clever or consistent to
pooh-bah such an idea now admit
they were short sighted. Only the
miserably uninformed now contradict
It is also admitted that we have
no arms, equipment fir sufficient train
ed men to resist an invasion success
fully. We are a rich country but a
weak one, and the parable of the rich
and weak is obvious in its application
here. In time we would be victori
ous; as soon, in fact, as wet could
train a great volunteer army.

these facts. National
leaders advocate the raining of citizen-soldiers,
That is our greatest
hope. With a sufficient force of train
ed men as a basis, organisation of a
big volunteer army would be greatly
facilitated. But a mob can't light a
modern army, even if it is an army of
invasion. It would be slaughter, not
The United States government pro
vides the National Guard of the coun
try, 110,000, strong, with guns, am
munition, equipment and maneuvers
facilities at a cost of millions annu
ally. In return it has available that
big force for any emergency of war
which may arise. The National
Guard is composed of young men
who are ready to respond to a call
to arms and in the efficiency of these
men lies any hope we may have of
meeting the contingency of sudden
clash with a hostile Oriental power.
But while the Government provides
millions for the training of these men
it takes the stand that the various
states should do their part as well.
The secretary of War lately said in
an official report, that he felt the
states should at least house the re
serve army in suitable armories since
the United States Government pays
nearly all the rest of the bills.
So, without going further into this
subject it is urged that tthe duty of
every state is to facilitate the train
ing of citizens in military duty. The
cost is very little compared with the
benefit. Surely Oregon can afford
to build a few armories for its young
men who are preparing to uphold
the Nations honor ana dig
nity and protect its property. It is
your manifest duty to vote Yes on the
Armory bill when you go to the
polls June 1.
MUST SEEK NEW QUARTERS.
Famous New York Bread Line Will
NEW YORK, May 28. The fam
ous old bread line established by Otto
F. Fleischmann at Tenth-street and
Broadway thirty-two years ago will
be moved a week from next Monday.
Grace Church, which owns the prop
erty in front, now distributes bread
free to all in the line, and has decided
to tear down the building. The space
will be used as a garden in connec
tion with the church. A new bread
line will be formed at the northwest
corner of Eleventh and Broadway
where Mr. Fleischmann leased a
building. A cafe and restaurant will
be conducted at the new place and
free bread will be given to all who
on cold nights. Mr. Flesch-mann said
yesterday his benefaction would be
developed and extended.
"We will continue this charity, as
we feel that many poor men and wo
men are helped by it. When we are
told that the Grace Church wants the
property, we feel as long as we have
to seek new quarters we must pro
vide also for a new bread line."
More News From the New England
If any one has any doubt as to the
virtue of Foley's Kidney Cure, they
need only to refer to Mr. Alvin H
Stimpson, of Willamantic, Conn.,
who, after almost losing hope of re
covery, on account of the failure of so
many remedies, finally tried Foley's
Kidney Coure, which he says was
"just the thing" for him, as four
bottles cured him completely. He is
now entirely well and free from all
the suffering incident to acute kidney
trouble. T. F. Laurin, Owl Drug
