HELD TO BE OBSTACLE
Hard to Gain His Attention
to Matters of Great Im-
WASHINGTON, March 24. Not
only was the navy department with
out comprehensive plan for naval
participation lh a war when the
United States severed relations with
Germany, but Secretary Daniels dis
approved the general plan drawn up
by the bureau of operations and sub
mitted In March, 1917. Certain
Harris Lanlng. former assistant
chief of navigation, today told the
senate Investigating committee.
As the result of this alleged lack
of preparation, the witness said, the
navy, department virtually was in
a state of chaos the day the United
KLatea entered the war
. inunria rrBonaiiiy I'lUliou.
; Personal characteristics" of Sec
retary Daniels often made it Impos
sible to obtain approval of important
plana and policies. Captain Lanlng
asserted, as the personal Interest
taken by him In minor affairs "occu
pied 'so much time that he never
had much left t-o give ns for really
Captain Lanlng testified that .at
. 1 1 ... a . . mm w . .
th time war was declared there was
hot a "sufficient rwerve of 14-lnch
shells to refill the magazines of the
dreadnaughts and that the bureau
of ordnance had to obtain the aid
of the bureau of operations to brine
the matter to the secretary's atten
tion Impressively, enottgn . to get
authority to let contracts.
After several . weeks delay. Cap
tain Lanlnf said, the shells were
ordered. Other, (char ge made by
the witness were that the depart
ment In 'the years immediately pre
ceding the war did not advocate
legislation and policies that would
prepare the navy for hostilities, that
when it wag anparent war roull not
be avoided the department sill re
fused to prepare; that lack of co
; ordination in the department during
r the early months of the war reduced
the effectiveness of American - par
tlelpation and added to the cost and
rhat when 'war was declared; the
department told the country s that
the iiavy was ready, when in reality
it was known that it would take at
least 100 davs to prepare even the
latest ships tor active service.
Cntriidictonr Letter lteml.
'" Senator Trammell, Democrat, read
a letter' written 1y the captain to
Rear Admiral Sims In Aungst. 1018.
epprently In answer to a letter from
the admiral,, criticising the depart
ment for not ooperatine more fully
with the naval forces abroad.
"The Laneing letter opened with
the statement that the writer was
"not convinced" that the bureau of
operation ha 1 "erred In its gene
ral plans" and declared that a sur-
gestlon made bv Admiral Sims earli
er tht the battleships be placed out
of commission and their crews sent
overseas would, if adopted, have
proved "disastrous'' The letter
"Over there you give ns the devil
because we don't do all that vou

Criticism is easy an! Jus
criticism is beneficial, but there is
nothing more Irwcring to the noralo
than unjust crtleism and - criticism
made without full knowledge and
taoogbt is apt to be unjust."
After reading the letter. Senator
Trammell nrked Captain Lanlng f
be did not think the letter answered
many of Admiral Sims' charges and
me of the criticisms made by Cap
Uln. , Laning himself in his direct
latement. The offifer replied that
he did not believe so. that the letter

MAKE ANY PEACE
Desire to End State of War
Prevails Among Many at
WASHINGTON. Marrch 24. With
plans for a peace declaration at a
standstfll In the senate. Republican
leaders of the house conferred today
on means of hasteing action of the
declatory resolution at their end of
There was no final decision on the
form of the resolution or the time
of Its presentation, but It was said
an agreement probably would be
reached within a few days. Several
suggested drafts are under consider
ation, all of them following in some
respects the Knox resolution which
has been approved by the senate
foreign relations committee.
Various constitutional points have
been raised, all ot which the leaders
want to meet in the draft which they
finally will lay before the house.
Speaker Oillett and Republican
Leader Mondell of the bouse, held a
long conference with Senator Loodge
of Massochusetts, Republican senate
leader before the plans for house ac
tion were Inaugurated and It was
aid general understanding was
reached as to procedure.
A new element was Injected into
the question today by Senator Thom
as. Democrat. Colorado, who declared
in a senate speech that if President
Wilson vetoed a peace delegation, as
manv senators believe he will, con
cress would have no authority to
pass it over the veto as the presi
dent's concurrence is required to de
clare war and it also would be regul-
sit to a peace declaration. -

Substantial Contribution Is
Made by Electrical Work
Can Marion county legally appro
priate $25,000 toward building the
proposed new hospital?
This question has le?n frequency
asked by taxpayers since the appro
priation has been announced. The
answer is "No" and "Yes."
No. because there is no legal au
thority to mak the appropriation.
Yes. because if the expenditure of
the $25.ooo should be barred, the
county authorities have the lawful
right to build a separate hospital
structure for . exclusive use of 'he
aged, homeless or penniless patients
who must be cared for at public t-x-pense.
County I'seo Hospital
Heretofore, all county patients
hav; been Jreated in the present Sa
lem hospital. This cannot be done
much longer as that building mujt
soon be vacated.
Should no buiUiing be provlled.
then these patients must be treated
in the two remaining hospitals. Hut
since these are already crowded, it
is not probable that admittance can
be r icured for them.
The county then would have to
proceed under the law to build a
new hospital. This would be much
more expensive to the taxpayers
than for Marion county t- join with
benevolent donors in erecting tho
proposed new and commodious hos
pital building that will provide the
maximum of hospital facilities at a
