Sixty thousand men who gavq their live* In Fiance have redeemed the covenant of blood made two years ago. the president said, but the pledge of treasure, remains yet to bo fulfilled. "Today the world stands freed from the threat of militarism," the president .stated from Paris. "But as yet we stand only at tho threshold of hiippier times. To enter we must ful-llll to the utmost the engagements we have made." President Wilson declared: 'For two anxious years tho American people have striven to fulfill the task of saving our civilization. By the exertion of unmeasured power thoy have' quickly won the victory without which they would have remained in the field until the last resource had been exhausted. Bringing to tho contost a strength of flplrit made doubly strong by the righteousness of their cause, they devoted themselves unswervingly to the Iirowicution of their undertaking in tho full knowledge that no conquest lay in th'-ir jialh excepting the con-nuest of right. 37TH DIVISION ALL "All set, the Job."

WASHINGTON, April 19.-Hear--ings on the subject of war-timo administration of military justice probably will be concluded next week. Chairman Gregory, of the committee of the American Bar Association, announced to-night. Major Gen. Clarence Edwards, who commanded the 26th (New England National Guard) division; Col. S. Edgewick Rice, commandant of the army disciplinary barracks at Fort Leavenworth; I.ieut. Col. Samuel T. Ansel), former acting judge advocate general, and Col. John Wigmore are still to appear. j Colonel Ansell will present his views Monday afternoon. His position as' the leading opponent of the existing Judicial system of the army was recognized by tho committee In Chairman Gregory's announcement that the officer had been Invited to call any ! persons he might desire to be heard. Kxpcrts Are On Stand. Three lawyers who either are now, or were officers of the army during the war period, gave their views today, one. of them, Major George G. Denis, of Los Angeles, Cal., having been foe a considerable time judge-advocate of> the advance section, service of supply, in France, with Jurisdiction over Sanduskians by the thousands turned out Saturday night to greet the returning heroes of the 147th infantry, nearly all former members of Company B, Sixth Ohio National Guard, but all that most of the folks saw was the rest of the crowd. A turnout of people unequaled any time since America plunged into the war, with the exception of armistice day, gathered to pay homage to the returning soldiers, but owing to unfortunate arrangements, Sandusky's welcome to her own men in. khaki failed to express the sincerity of pride and joy felt by the community. Twenty-four. Erie-co members of the 147th infantry were mustered out at Camp Sherman Saturday at 12:4o p. m. and with but oile or two exceptions, they came through to Sandusky as a unit. Several from other units were with the men from the 147th when the train pulled into the foot of Columbus ave. Ix>n;j before tho Pennsylvania train was scheduled to arrive, Columbus avc. and tho other down-town streets were crowded. At 9:45 o'clock Ackley's band swans down Columbus ave., followed by the St. Mary's Boy and Girl Cadets. Already hundreds had packed into tho Columbus ave. slip, and when the throng; following the band arrrjved, tho place wis a sea of humanity. Hundreds lined Columbus ave., also, as fur south as Market st., most people holding the impression that tho returning soldier boys would parade down the avenue. There was pc-noral disappointment that no march was arranged. Estimates on the size of tho crowd ranged from 8,000 to 12,000 people. Shortly after 10 o'clock, the bell of the approaching train on Railroad st. was heard. Auto horns tooted and as tlio engine eame in sight a great clicer arose, hut it died out with the eagerness of the tlirong to get a glimpse of tho fighters returning to Sandusky after 18 months' absence, most of which time they spent on tho battlefields of France Tho crowd surged forward and presented a human wall through' whi/ih It was at first impos-I sible for the men to break. No arrangement had been made to clear a ' path, and in tho space of one or two minutes tho doughboys had been swallowed up in tho tlirong and wero scattered. Over to one Bide, far from the place where the men left the train, tho band blared out a war-tlmo selection which no one seemed to hear. There was craning of necks, trampling on toeaoind cries of "Wh,ero are they?" but nary a cheer. This was excusable, for the most part, because people seldom cheer soldiers they cannot see. And so ended Sandusky's welcome to her former guardsmen, now veterans of the world's greatest war. Ca.pfa.ln Ceyrney "Chei-e Ami* Tho Hunt F;>r a Hero. If there had been a sentimental girl aboard the Pennsylvania train which brought members of company B back home, that sentimental girl would have had but little comfort. Instead of movie heroes, the city of Sandusky got back some very husky young gentlemen who were very eager for home and who were not at all eager to talk about their experiences abroad. "Here'3 Jackson street," yelled a top sergeant, when the train puffed Into Sandusky. "Please excuse me Just ten minutes," he said, "while I tell my best that I am here." A representative of the Register went to Bucyrus and met the train bringing the boys home. He went in with a fine tooth comb, metaphor!

The U-boat was taken to the navy yard and will be exhibited to stimulate interest In the Victory loan.

WASHINGTON, April 19-Members I of the department of commerce's Industrial board indicated today that I the board would resume its general . ! price stabilization program without j , waiting for settlement of differences with the railroad administration over steel prices. It was said that an Intensive effort would be made to re-,' duce tho cost of food and other ne-1 cesslttes. President Wilson's cablegram to Secy. Redfield, was interpreted by the board members as authorizing the board to continue its activities. Mr. Redfield returned to Washington tonight from New England and it was expected that conferences between the board and tho railway representatives would be resumed Monday, al-j though It was regarded as probable | that no final agreement could bo I made effective until director General Hlnes returned from his western trip.

Five dayt and nights were required by Hunter to drive here, officers and tho woman greeted him. He will face a charge of horse stealing. to vest final jurisdiction over army disciplinary action through court martial in the Judge advocate general or any appellate court agency In his office. Majors; Stone and Denis vigorously opposed such a course and defended the existing legal system. "There Is nothing tho matter with th.o court martial system," said Major Denis. "The trouble lies in Us administration, its vice is ignorance of the articles of war on the part of the members of tho court, almost all of whom are new officers. "These officers from civil life seemed to take no Interest In the administration of military law. They seemed to feel it undignified to sit on tho courts. The regular officers Invariably were well posted on the articles of war and the manual of courts martial."
