Friends of the bill feel that there ts a distinct advantage of proceeding to a vote under unanimous consent agreement rsther than by application of gag rule. Senator La Follette has not yet Indicated the manner in which he will fight the conscription bill ea the floor of the senate. He is the author of a sub bill for the administration meas- uer. Tha La Follette bill would eliminate the draft Idea altogether and provide tor submission to referendum thO entire question of raising an army. If ho sees. tit to put up a fight tor this plan he can greatly delay the vote on .the main question. 12 GERMAN LINERS WIU IE OSEB mtlll WEEK Washington, D.

C, April 25—"I am told that there are some doubting critics in America who believe tbat. the mission of tbe British and French officials here Is to Inveigle tho United States out ot her traditional policy and to entangle her In an alliance, secret or public, with European government. I cannot Imagine a rumor of less foundation, nor an undertaking more futile. - ■ America entered this great conflict tor the liberties of mankind. The same spirit animates all of the allied .countries." With visible emotion, Arthur J. Balfour, tte British foreign minister, thus outlined to correspondents this morning the aims and purposes of the two great Ititamiflnnsl commissions in coming to the• United States, and gave assurance to the nation that lt is not their desire to Influence the American, government to abandon the policy of Washington of "no entangling alliances." *. - No Dl*p**itlen to Dictate.

BY JOHN EDWIN NEVIN International Newe Service Staff Cor- respondent. Washington, D. 0. April'25.—The spirit of France came to the nation's capital today.' Its greatest national hero, Joseph Joffre, marshal of France, accompanied by Rene Vlvlanl. vice premier, and minister ot Justice, aa chief of the mission, passed through the streets of the city prepared to tell the American people what they must do that the cause ot republicanism and representative government shall triumph over Prussian militarism. Tho British mission tot a real welcome last Sunday. But it did not class with the love, reverence and brotherhood ttat marked the arrival in Washington of the representatives of the greatest republic of Europe. Aa they rode through tte wide avenues of the city, the men of France were made to feel ttat their sacrifices were appreciated by the American people. U was plain that th* spirit of LaFayette »UU lives in the hearts of the nation. And I. was commented on as more than a coincidence that exactly 140 yeara ago today—April 26, 1777—the Marquis De LaFayette sailed tram Passages, Spain to offer his sword and his all to the service of tho people who at that time were fighting for the perpetuation of democracy and representative government. The skies were grey today ttt direct contrast to the brilliant sunshine which marked the welcome to Mr. Balfour and hla party. But tte city ttaelf was picturesque In the extreme. The sheen of tte entwined flags of the allies was reflected from tbe white blossom* on the trees and the deep green of a Washington spring day. The stars and stripes, the union Jack of England, and the tricolor of. France were displayed on countless flagstaffs, from windows and 'on the front of a thousand automobiles. And as the distinguished visitors landed at the navy yard wharf ami passed in procession through the streets to the residence selected tor thfeir abode, they were greeted by wild cheering and applause everywhere. It was shortly after 11 o'clock when the presidential yacht Mayflower was sighted la \he Potomac river, south of Buzzard's Point at the entrance'to the navy yard. She had "loafed" up tto river in order that the arranged program could be fully carried out. The yacht swung Into the cut leading to tts yard and steamed on to her dock in accordance with 'the arranged plan, bedng made fast it lust 11:21 S_!»e— o'clock. The members of tho French mission were on deck ready to disembark. As they stepped ashore tl. y were greeted by the official delegation assigned to welcome them to the nation by President Wilson. The representatives of the United States, Including Secretary of State Robert' Lansing, Counsellor of the State Department, Frank L. Polk, First Assistant,'Secretary of State William Phillips, Warren Roberts and Lanier Phillip*, of the state department. Col. Wm. Harts, personal aide to Preaident' Wilson, Major TT. S, Orant III, U. S. A., and Lieut. A. F. Carter, U. S. N.. In addition to Minister Vlvlanl and Marshal Joffre, the visiting party included Vice Admiral Cocheprat, dean of the TTench navy; Marquis Pierre De Chambrun, member ot the chamber ot deputies, M. Hovelacque, inspector general of public instruction, Lieut. Col. Fabry, cWef ot Marshal Joffre's staff, Lieut. Col. Reqnln, ot the war office. Major Alfred Dreyfus Of tte medical corps snd- Lieut De Tiossan of the VTenth army. Lined up Inside. of the yard were two troops of the Second cavalry ot the regular army who, after the welcoming greetings had been exchanged acted as personal escort to tte visitors. The latter bad been accompanied up the bay and river trom Fortress Monroe by the Frtaich ambassador to the United States M. Jules Jusserand, Col. VIgnal, the French military attache, Commander De Blanpre, the French naval attache; Third Assistant Secretary of State Hreckeriridge Long, Assistant Secretary of the navy Franklin D.

A.; Major Pox Connor, and Captain Philip Shorldan, U. S. A. The most elaborate precautions had been taken for the safety of the French officials. In accordance with their military guard tbey were led and followed by picked men of tbe secret service and Of the Washington police. Armed men stationed on roofs at adjacent points along the route watched against possible attacks from above. These precautions were taken in order to prevent, any untoward incident. Food and then more food and trained men by the hundred, thousand tor transport work must be a contribution to end the European war.
