I If disarmament is achieved it will have to be through a
itional iagreement.l There is little warrant for the sanguine
iew that new inventions will lead automatically to the same
suit. It has been suggested, for example, that expenditure
i costly battleships might be eliminated, by a demonstration
f the efficacy of the bomb plane. But the first result of
ie sinking of a surrendered German battleship by bombs
ropped ifrom the air, according to a writer in the Springfield
i publican, is a proposal to increase the naval program by a
umber of very large, swift and expensive "mother ships."
This illustrates the general tendency of mechanical in-
'it ia always toward the increase and not the diminution
T expenditure Even if the old is made obsolete it is re
aced , by something more costly, and the effect may be
;erely to add new expenses to the old. The Monitor was ac
airaed as a cheap and invincible fighting ship, but it proved
be only a step! in the long and costly competition between
ie armored ship and its foes which led to the Dreadnought
nd has not yet come to an end. " : . '
The Dreadnought was. never praised as an economy, and
.deed the British admiralty was sharply criticized for adort

ar can be reduced by new inventions is fallacious, though
ot for the reason often urged by conservative military and
aval men who distrust new f angled substitutes for highly
.aborated and well tried weapons. t At times the new may
resent a deceptive appearance of cheapness, but as with the
lonitor this is only because it is still undeveloped. Inven
ion can accelerate expenditure as the Dreadnought illus
rates, but it cannot reduce expenditure
For the simple reason that the basis of competition in
rmaments is ability to pay. ; '
; Consen-ative military men denounced compulsory service
3 a cheap substitute for the costly but well trained prof es
onal armies of pre-Napoleonic days, but long before 1914
inscription had become anything but cheap, and the simple
tizen soldiery of a century ago had become an armed con
nent marching to ' Armageddon. ' "
The only way. to reduce armaments is to reduce them
And there is no foundation whatever for the .belief that
iere exists in the progress of science and invention a force
nding to bring about disarmament or to provide some cheap
fense of nations which are unable or unwilling to compete
i armaments. If nations once set out to compete in this
eld there is no limit short of bdnkruptcy or war. It is to
ad off this dismal alternative that an international under
anding is necessary. " -

1918, that the secretary of the In

in or contiguous to the former
limits of the grant lands "when

missioner Spry declares this-places
t'pon the secretary of the interior
a responsibility that he cannot dl j
vide with the state.
I .and Are Clarified
An act of June 9, 1916, revested
in the United States the title to
so mucn or tne grant lands
(which were granted to the Ore
gon-California Railroad company
by acts of July 25. 1866. and
May 4, 1870). as had been paten
ted to the railroad or to which the
railroad was, under its grant en
titled to receive patent, as had not
been sold by the company prior to'
July 1, 1913.
. Section 2 of the act of June 9.
1916, directs that the revested
lands shall be classified Into one
of three classes:
"Class one. Power-site lands,
which shall include only sucb
lands as are chiefly valuable for
water-power sites, which lands
shall be subject to withdrawal and
such UBe and disposition as has
been or may be provided by law
for other public lands ot like
"Clas two. Tlmberlands, which
shall include lands bearing a
growth of timber not less than
300.000 board feet measure on
each 40-acre subdivision.
"Class three. Agricultural
lands, which shall include all
lands not falling within either of
the two other classes."
Rales Too Slow f
In his letter to Governor! Ol
cott Commissioner Spry says: if
"Section four of said act pro
vides that the timber on lands
classified as class 2 (I. e. timber
lands), shall be sold for cash, as
rapidly as reasonable prices can
be secured therefor in the normal
market. Under date of September
5, 1917, Instructions governing
the sale to timber on the revested
Oregon & California railroad
grant lands classified as timber
lands, were approved by the sec
retary of the Interior (46 L. D

been sold only approximately
500,000.000 feet, board measure
of timber, for which there has
been received about $800,000,000
