Secretary Baker do-I'larcd. gave a dtspropoftlonal aspect. Without inloht, ho saldi the effect of tho senator's speech was to give tho impression that the deflclonclea "woro characteristic rather than Occasional." Me said ho.was not there to dofcnd Individuals or dcnir delays and false starts. "But Ithink I can say in oon-Ildonce that In them we have sought tho remedy." -'^ � Million Under Armt That thero are mOre.than a million men under arms iu-the cOiintry was stated by Seeretaiy Baker in referring to the cases Of alleged neglect of the dead "In camp cited by Senator Chamberlain. * Major Genci'ral Wood,' Mi".

At a time like this, when,-the whole world Is crying for food, when the farmer ranks next to the soldier In the fight for civilization, everything possible to speed up production, encoui-age the mott'on the land and bring idle laud under cultivation, should be done. Nothing would bring all this to pass more quickly and effectually than lU6 removal or the tariff on farm machinery. What is tho explanation of the change? The News says that it Is partially contained in a sentence taken from another portion of the same article -y "Party government Is no 'more.' MoBt i)aper8 are not now so prone, out of regard Xor a foolish consistency,'to advocfite opinions once considered fundamental by the party they formerly supported. The prairie country is almost a unit for lovf tariff. Before the war, the fear of possible political effects''on the future of the Domiaion .restrained some from advocating freer trade relations with, the United .States. But no>r. this cooslderatioa is no longer of .any account,. and^ on the tariff, western people stand pretty much on 9omiuon ground. l>fow the view ;0t J^eMopae Jaw News, always a very pronoiinccdvisupporter of tfio Conaer-vatrvo party.
