OUR DELICIOUS 8UGAR CURED HAMS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY LB. 2Sc. WHOLE OR HALF HAMS. CHEESE STAND, MARKET HOUSE. J. A. MORRISON Ca Men From 20 to 25 May Be the First to Be Accepted Washington, D. C, April 5.—Final details of the administration's plans for raising armies to flght Germany were worked out today at a confer ence at the capitol between Secretary of War Baker and Senator Chamber- Iain, chairman of tbe senate military affairs committee. The measure providing for an Immediate draft of sufficient men to bring the total available fighting strength tip to approximately 1,200,000 will be Introduced tr. both houses Just as toon as tbe house adopts tbe Flood- Martin war resolution. Thts means that the bill will be laid before congress sometime tomorrow. Until the adoption of the war resolution by tbe house, details of the new army bill will be withheld. Both Senator Chamberlain and Secrtary of War Baker declined to discuss the plan after today'3 conference. The life of the new army, under the general staff plan would be for the duration of the war or tin sueb time as the International affairs of the nation were in tweh state as to permit of its demobilization. The troops then will go Into the reservfe after this. Senator Chamberlain made tt clear for the first time that the bin provld- ng tor an immediate levy of troops is an emergency one and Is entirely a separate measure from the planned compulsory military training. The troops recruited under this bill will be used to fill the ranks of tbe regular army and tbe national guard to war strength and to create an army In training of approximately 500.000 men. The Universal training bill then wlll br pushed with vigor to put the Untied States on a firm and penn.anent fighting basis for a prolonged war and future emergency. The plan Is to Introduce the army bill in the senate tomorrow and refer lt promptly to the military affairs committee. A favorable report to the senate may be made i within a few hours. Leaders planned tc use every psrllamentary expedient I for parage of the bill In the hope of ; petting it through the senate late to- I morrow. The senate military affairs committee tomorrow also will take up the army appropriation bill, passed yesterday by the louse with the expectation of adding to it enormous amounts estimated to be necessary by the war department as a result of the declaration of war. More than two years of close of- r.ervance of the recruiting problems faced by th? European nations have gone into the bill. The mistakes mado In the early days by the warring countries abroad, notably England, bave been avoided, tts sponsors believe, and their successes appropriated and utilized. Army men declare that the body of troops thai will be raised under the general staff plan will be the finest trained and equipped army in the world inside of two years. Under the "universal liability to service" plan the army will draw the cream of America's young manhood. Wide latitude is given the military heads in selecting the units of the new army. Only those In their twenties, probably those from 20 to 25 years of age will be taken. They will be single men, with no dependents, foot loose, and lo all intents and purposes heart tree The men from 25 to 30 will constitute the nations Becond line of defense, from 30 to 35 tbe third and by tbe time those are trained—It the? need be— a new class of youngsters win have sprung up to perm't the for- mation of another army of twenties. After almost 200 years of volunteer armies with all the mistakes that such a loose system mast Involve, the United tates has at last a plan ot efficient defense ot tho nation In Uie view of army men.

Emblem or Leave City That it is very inexpedient to express sentiments that may be construed as unpatriotic, if not really treasonable, is fully realized by a transient who appeared at police bead- quarters, Wednesday evening, and asked for a lodging place. A busky looking man of middle age who later gave his name as Eugene McCarty, of Irish-American birth, and who came here to serk employment in a local shop, appeared at the police station about 8 o'clock last evening and asked for a place to sleep. As Is customary, Acting Sergeant Lower asked the man if he had any knives, razors or weapons about bim. It being tbe rule to take any such articles from lodgers and return them in the morning. Tbe revest seemed to Irritate the. man and be questioned as to why he should be required to deposit with the sergeant such articles. Patrol Driver Eagleton endeavored to explain the matter but the stranger failed to comprehend and became rather abusive ln bis talk. This resulted in the man being ordered to leave the build ing. Continuing his expression of dis approval of the local police methods Officer Eagleton remarked that the fellow had better Join forces with the kaiser. McCarty came baok wltb the iftmark, lt is alleged, that in case of war tbat the kaiser would get this country. Also tbat In case of war, "we would blow up the brides, rail roads, shops, etc." Eagleton at once demanded of the man who be meant by "we" in his threat. Tbe reply was that he meant the Germans. After some further derogatory remarks and sneering Insinuations upon the part of the man Officer Eagleton collared him and locked him in a cell, the record ipade upon the blotter being that he was held for making "threats."

Mayor Westover read the law upon the subject of treason, especially in time of war, and informed tbe man as to tbe penalty.

C, April 5.—A sensational feature of the debate in the house this afternoon on the Flood-Mar tin stste of war resolution was a challenge by Representative Cooper, of Wisconsin, of President Wilson's assertion that American lives were lost wben the ussex was imperiled. This statement was not so, Cooper declared. He defended tbe McLemore resolution which would have kept Americans off armed ships. The debate dragged tn the early staged. A sensation was caused by the statement of close friends of Claude Kitchin. the majority leader, that he "very probably would vote against the state of war resolution." Kitchin Bald that he would make his position plain when the time arrived for him to talk.

"Isn't it time that we should be accurately informed?" shouted -Cooper, "Isn't lt time for accuracy of statement and truthful information? 1 object to war because some Americans insist on riding on belligerent ships under belligerent flsgs.

"I was right and so were the members of the house who voted against tabling the McLemore resolution. I was right then and I am right now. "Don't beg the whole question by saying it Is a right of American citizens to ride on belligerent ships, for which if they lose their Uvea we must go to war wltb a nation four thousand miles away.

As none of tha many pairs of ,-pectacles proffered him fltted his eyes, he was finally chllgPd to abandon his prepared not.'* and speak extemporaneously. Cooper then made an extended rn. tiew of American diplomatic correspondence which Oreat Britain and her allies and with the central powers. He declared that the administration had been far more insistent upon ita demands on Germany than It had on Great Britain. "Great Brltiin has been permitted to change the rule of International law, while thc war is in progress," he declared. "It is not a question of property rights t.r human life. It is a question Of neutrality. It Is simply a question of thts country going into the war to destroy the German empire bo- cause It is a monarchy."
