AIM WE MUST.
That the United States must be ade
quately armed haa become apparent to
all but the most confirmed pacifists.
It has become apparent to the present
administration, which is preparing a
comprehensive plan of national de
fense involving largely increased ex
penditores for both the military and
naval arms. - One year ago such a plan
wouu nave oeen condemned as unwise
and on-American by men of all parties.
Now they will and do endorse it as nec
essary for the aame reason that fire in
surance and police are necessary. It
is known now that Uncle Sam must
have protection against the insane.
the criminal and the incendiary among
the nations. There will be difference
of opinion only as to the ways and
means, and we can only hope that our
government will be well advised.
A standing army of half a million
men seems to be assured. The Leader
would like to see a large proportion of
this army made up of citizen soldiers,
well paid by the government, subject
to every rule of army discipline and
serving just long enough with the col
ors to learn the fundamentals of a sol
dier's business. These citizen soldiers
would be changing constantly in per
sonneL and in the course of a few
years the body of our citizenship would
embrace a large number of trained
men, knowing their work should they
ever be called to the colors. The
regular army, conducted much as at
present but with "its ranks largely in
creased, would provide the teachers.
The navy should and will be mater
ially strengthened. If we are to be
lieve its eritica its needs are many. It
is poorly equipped and inadequately
manned, and its several battleships and
cauisers while formidable enough on
paper are not supplied with the re
quired complement of auxiliary ves
sels to bring them up to the standard
of their fighting power. The present
navy, in brief, ia inefficient. How
best to mske it efficient snd to aug
ment its strength constitutes one of
the sdministrstion's gravest problems,
especially as graft and corruption have
been seemingly Inseparable from our
naval development. More importance
than heretofore will undoubtedly be at
tached to submarines and air craft.
Murphy's cartoon in Monday 's Jour
nal, portraying Uncle Sam as "The
Lone Fireman" who seeks to protect
the structure of International Law
against both German and English
flames, affords a striking example of
the highest type of the cartoonist's art.
We fancy that if a Umatilla Indian
were familiar with the present trend

Buyers' Week at Portland (August 9

it without permission: When the mer
chants of the Northwest in convention
assembled discuss ways and means of
fighting the catalogue houses, let them
consider the employment of the ablest
press agent they can eecure, whose
duty it will be to supply readable arti
cles regularly to the country press.
The campaign of publicity against the
great and ruthless octopi of the trade
should be strong and persistent instead
of feeble and sporadic,, Every newa

article setting forth the reasons why
