L J*. Daniels to report to him a programme of national defense caused widespread comment. Several weeks ago the %  *——^fcad^ent discussed thesituauon wTfti his cabinet with ^thc result that both departments began preparation of plans to meet any emergency and also to establish a permanent policy for adequate national defence. The White Hou^e statement gave no reason for the announcement stating merely that the President would confer on his return from Cornish with Secretaries Daniels and Garrison "To formulate a sane, reason able and practical programme of national defense." It was indicated however in official quarters that the determination to expedite the plans being made resulted from a consideration of the possibilities of the international situation. Washington:—Orders were issued today with the approval of President Wilson to Major General Funston to repel with force if necessary any firing into American territory during the fighting between the Mexican factions on the border and a note was despatched to General Car ranza advising him to this ef feet Soon afterwards advices from Carranza headquarters to his representatives here said that the General had i* sued orders not toattack Vil la forces near Nogale^, and gave assurances that the Car ranza forces which had occu pied Naco would witndraw. Washington;—The Amori can note on submarine wai fare was presented at Berlin by Ambassador Gerard and was made public today. It reveals that Germany has been informed that it is the intention of the United S'|es to regard as "Deliber jjAunfriendly" any repeti ^on by Germany s naval commanders of Acts in con tradiction of American rights. The United States annoiin ces that it will continue to contend for the freedom of the seas "From whatever quarters violated, without compromise, and at any cost." In official and diplomatic quarters the communication is considered the strongest! and most emphaticannounce-' ment made by the Washing ton "government since the be ginning of its correspondence with the Furopean bellige ren ts. President Wilson returned to Cornish tonight on the as sumption that Germany had already admitted the illegali | ty of her practices byattempt \ ing to justify them as retalia tory against Great Britain. The United States express I es the belief that Germany no' i longer will refrain from disa j |vowing the wanton act of its: naval commander in sinking 1 the Lusitania or from offering i reparation for the American lives lost so far as reparation can be made for a needless i destruction of human life byj an illegal act. London, 24th:—The Aus 1 tro Germans are driving their j attacks against the Russian! armies defending Warsaw without let up and at some points they report advancet. The attackers are operating however through country which the retiring troops have laid waste, where poor roads are little suited for heavy artillery movements necessary for bombardment of the great fortresses that bar the way. Washington:—Red Cross assistance will be withdrawn from Ku ropes battlefield an in October as there are no funds to continue the work. Chicago:—The Inspection Bureau is blamed for the accident lo the steamer Eastland. President Wilson has ordered an investigation. Berlin:—Russian war prisoners in the hands f the Germans and Austrians since the beginning of the war numbers more than one aud a half million officers and men, according to a war office announcement. London:—A despatch to the London TIMES from Sofia today say that the convention ceding to Bulgaria the Turks portion of the Dedeaghatch Railway was signed at Constantinople last Thursday Zurich:—In view of the possibility of. aerial bom bard ment Venice is placed in darkness after 8:30 P.M. —o — July 27th 1915. London, 26th. Governor, Bahamas. Official News. — General French reports the successful repulse of German bomb attacks. General Hamilton reports that a Turkish attack on Northern trenches were repulsed, the enemy leaving about fifty dead. In Aden Hinterland Sheikh Otoman has re-occupied and the Turks pursued for live miles. The French government re port success in the Vosges at Bandesapt where powerful defensive organization was carried and over 800 prisoners captured. The Russian government reports desperate lighting at various points on the Narew front. In the sector RozanPultusk part of the enemy forces succeeded in crossing the left bank. Between the Vistula and Bug Rivers on Lublin-Choln front the enemies offensive has ceased except in Grubiezow district. The Italian government report enemy attacks in Montenero region repulsed with heavy loss. Action on Carso Plateau is developing favourably.

The Human Side of The War Secretary. J L ORD Kitchener, who w ill receive ihe hearty congri tulations of the nation i' daj on the occasion of hit I birthday, apj ears lo present a personality to tlie biographei thai is quite baffling in its complexity. The genial author of the "Autocrat of the Break! Table" said that we all had six sides to HI r personalities. In most of us this is nol very i a i ly discerned. But the theorj might be ingeniously corroborated in the case of "K. of K.," if we may judge by the stories illustrative of his charactei which are t<> he found in Ml Harold Begbie's striking char acterstudy,"Kitchener: Organ i-. %  •] %  .if Victory," re ently pub lishcd in the U 5.A. by the Hough ton Mifflin Co. (Apparent!) there ii no English i ditiuii.) "Lord Kiti In rier," Mr. B begins by assuring us, "is nei (her the Machine nor the < Igro of popular imagination. I le is perfectly human. There is, indeed, something frank, boj ish, and rough humoured in his dis position, il" isshy, an I he lias moments when he craves for sympathy. All the same, he does not represent the British ch iracter in any <>f its most ami ible qualities. I le stands absolute!) for the nation just now, but lie is not the highest, the best, not even the most likeable of English types. Unroused, he is the deliberate, work loving, brusque, quite unimaginative, and very thorough British administrator; roused, he is the jaws of the bulldog." Thai probably gives a very fail ly liue impression <>l Lord Kitchener. He is certainly human enough not to be entire1 > an ogre or entirely a machine. But we shall see that Ins per sonalit) is compli x. Let us glanci firs! al the most human and mosl attractive side of him. THE HUMAN "K. OF K." "Among his relations were two dear diminutive old ladies, who lived in Phillimoregardens, Kensington, bj name the Misses Hutcliinson, and Kitchener was no dearer to these charming spinsters than they to him. I le wrote to them brightly and boj ishl) by almost even mail and whenever he relumed lo London the house in Phillimore gardens was not only his regular head-quarters, but the first goal at whi h he aimed Before he went to Egypt f>r Ins advance to Khar toum the) | resented him with a gold headed Swagger cane, and when the a Ivancc was ac complished and the photographer arrived to make . picture • f the General and his staff Kitchener seated himself in the Ci litre of the group with this stickheld so ostentatious!) that the old ladies in Kensington could not fail to recognise it when the photograph appeared in the illustrated papers. That, I think, is a charming touch in the man of blood and iron." And Mr. Begbie fjoes on to tell how the victor of Khartoum Sent lhe.ni roses from Cordon's grave; how Oil his return to London he hastened to visit them, and asked for "a jolly tea like the teas of old da) biead and jam and no people" i and how tin y would sit on eithei side of him. stud) ing his bronzed lace with their small, smiling shrewd eyes, teasing him, chaffing I adoring him and giving him sound advii e. That is a pleasant picture, and at the same time convincing evidence, suiely, that there is a very human Kitchener. ()ne may be v< ry human, however, and yet to all appearances very grim. It will come as a surprise to most readers, pro bably, to learn that "K. of K." is II 1 merely human, but can be %  v en light-hearted and con vivial. 01 this also Mr. begbie has unii i able proof. Ilis first witness is Dr. Clermmit Gauneau. an archaeologist who served with Kitchener in the PalestineSurve) in the late 'si venties and who describes him as "a good fellow in the fullest acceptance of the word . His high spirits and cheeriness formed an agreeable contrast to the serious, grave character of some of his comrades." It might be supposed that these companionable qualities had disappeared with his youth, hut no Listen to "a man of \ei\ great Social importance" on the War Secretary of to.day : "I have never felt the least dread of Kitcbener; he has stayed with me, and has been perfectly jolly and nice, entering into any fun that was going on, and being as larky and jo\ i I as the youngest. Moreover, he tells a stor) very well, particular!) a story against himself." THE SOLDIER-STATESMAN. But this witne on to admit that "K of K." does undoubtedly inspire t< rror in man) i eople, men and woi alike. 1 here is, of COUl •• %  no denying that the rougl i harshei sides of his character are those which are m< lei) known. They are so Familial already and need so little to 1 i insisted on that Mr. Begbi wise!) confines himself toa i few illustrations of them, 11 is one : — "] lui ing the wai in South Africa it was u< cessary on i. rtain oc< asion foi Kitchi ni to make a quick and highly perilous journey by train. A daring and high spi r i t e d youngster volunteered to drive 'the engine. The journey was accomplished. The volunteer diner, delighted that he had got the great General safely through mosl dangi rouscountry, said to Kitchener as the Chief ol the Staff passed him standing beside his sweating engine: "We weren't very long, sir, were we?" To which K. of K. replied, scarce looking at him, "You'll ha\e to be quii going back." And now, as to "The Man Who Mas Made Himself Machine"—how much trutl there in that famous d< lunation by the late G. W. Sieevi A great deal of truth, of coursi but not the whole truth. Mi Begbie, despiti whal he tells us of the more amiable suits ol Lord Kitchener's nature, and although he effect! to smile at what he calls the legend, pei haps a little too much inclined to say "ditto" to Mr. Steevens Lord Kitchener, in his i yes, is (Continued on 4th page) Wear Armbrister's Shoes • 1

"Among his relations were two dear diminutive old Scotch ladies, who lived in Phillimoregardens, Kensington, by name the Misses I lutchinson, and Kitchener was no dealer to these chstrming spinsters than they to him. I le wrote to them brightly and boyishly by almost every mail and whenever he returned to London the house in Phillimore gardens was not only his regular head-quarters, but the hrst yoal at which he aimed Before he went to Egypt for Ins advance to Khartoum the\ presented him with B gold headed swagger cane, and when the advance was accomplished and the photographer arrived to make a picture of the General and his staff Kitchener seated himself in the centre of the group with this stick held so ostentatiously that the old ladies in Kensington could not fail to recognise it when the photograph appeared in the illustrated papers. That, 1 think, is a charming touch in the man of blood and iron." And Mr. Bey hie goes on to tell how the victor of Khartoum sent them roses from Gordon's grave ; how on his return to London he hastened to visit them, and asked for "a jolly tea like the teas of old days biead and jam and no people" ; and how they would sit "one on either side of him, studying his bronzed face with their small, smiling shrewd eyes, teasing him, chaffing him, adoring him and giving him sound advice." That is a pleasant picture, and at the same time convincing evidence. BUiely, that there [is a very human Kitchener. One may be very human, however, and yet to all appearances very grim. It will come as a surprise to most readers, pro bably, to ham that "K. of K." is not merely human, but can be even light-hearted and con vivial. Of this also Mr. begbie has unimpeachable proof. His first witness is Dr. Clennont Gauneau, an archaeologist who served with Kitchener in the Palestine Survey in the late ' venties. and who describes him as "a good fellow in the fullest acceptance of the word . His high spirits and cheeriness formed an agreeable contrast to the serious, grave character of some of his comrades." It might be supposed that these companionable qualities had disappeared with his youth, but no Listen to "a man of very great social importance" on the War Secretary of to-day : "I have never felt the least dread of Kitchener; he has stayed with me, and has been perfectly jolly and nice, entering inlo any fun that was going on, and being as larky and jovial aI youngest. Moreover, he tells a story very well, particularl) a story against himself." THE SOLDIER-STATESMAN But this witness goi s on to admit that "K of K does undoubtedly inspire terror in many people, men and women alike.

LORD KITCHENER.
The Human Side of The War Secretary.
d
LOUD Kitchener, who will
receive the hearty congra
dilations of ih'.' nation to da)
on the occasion of his 65th
birthday,appears to present a;
personality to the biographei
thai is quite baffling in itscom-
plexity. The genial author of
the "Autocrat of ihe Bree>|efast
Table" said that we .-ill had six
sides to our personalities. In
most of us thij is not very easi
K discerned. But the theory
might be ingeniously corrobor-
ated in the case of *'K. of K ."
if we may judge DV the stories
illustrative of his charactei
which are to bo found in Mr.
Harold Begbie'S striking char
acterstudy,"Kitchener: Organ
iser of Victory," recently pub-
lished in the" U.S.A. by the
Hough ton Mifllin Co. (Appa-
rently there is no English 1 di
lion.)
Lord Kitcherier,' Mr. Begbie
begins by assuring us, "is n< i
tlier the Machine nor the (>gre
of popular imagination. I le is
perfectly human. There is, in-
deed, something frank, boyish,
and rough humoured in his dis-
position. He is shy, and he has
moments when he craves for
Sympathy. All the same, he
does not represent the British
character in any of its most
amiable qualities. He stands
absolutely for the nation just
now, but he is not the highest,
the best, not even the most
likeable of English types. Un-
roused, he is the deliberate,
work loving, brusque, quite un-
imaginative, and very thorough
British administrator; routed,
he 1- the jaws of the bulldog."
Thai probably gives a very
fairly true impression of Lord
Kitchener. He is certainly
human enough not to be entire-
ly an Ogre or entirely a machine.
But we shall see that his per
sonality is complex. Let us
glance lust at the most human
and most attractive side of him.
The Human "K. of K."
"Among his relations were
two dear diminutive old Scotch
ladies, who lived in Phillimore-
gardens, Kensington, by name
the Misses I lutchinson, and
Kitchener was no dealer to
these chstrming spinsters than
they to him. I le wrote to them
brightly and boyishly by almost
every mail and whenever he
returned to London the house
in Phillimore gardens was not
only his regular head-quarters,
but the hrst yoal at which he
aimed Before he went to
Egypt for Ins advance to Khar-
toum the\ presented him with
B gold headed swagger cane,
and when the advance was ac-
complished and the photogra-
pher arrived to make a picture
of the General and his staff
Kitchener seated himself in the
centre of the group with this
stick held so ostentatiously that
the old ladies in Kensington
could not fail to recognise it
when the photograph appeared
in the illustrated papers. That,
1 think, is a charming touch in
the man of blood and iron."
And Mr. Bey hie goes on to
tell how the victor of Khartoum
sent them roses from Gordon's
grave ; how on his return to
London he hastened to visit
them, and asked for "a jolly
tea like the teas of old days
biead and jam and no people" ;
and how they would sit "one
on either side of him, studying
his bronzed face with their
small, smiling shrewd eyes,
teasing him, chaffing him,
adoring him and giving him
sound advice."
That is a pleasant picture,
and at the same time convinc-
ing evidence. BUiely, that there
[is a very human Kitchener.
One may be very human, how-
ever, and yet to all appearances
very grim. It will come as a
surprise to most readers, pro
bably, to ham that "K. of K."
is not merely human, but can
be even light-hearted and con
vivial. Of this also Mr. begbie
has unimpeachable proof. His
first witness is Dr. Clennont
Gauneau, an archaeologist who
served with Kitchener in the
Palestine Survey in the late ' v-
enties. and who describes him
as "a good fellow in the fullest
acceptance of the word .
His high spirits and cheeriness
formed an agreeable contrast to
the serious, grave character of
some of his comrades." It
might be supposed that these
companionable qualities had
disappeared with his youth, but
no Listen to "a man of very
great social importance" on the
War Secretary of to-day : "I
have never felt the least dread
of Kitchener; he has stayed
with me, and has been perfectly
jolly and nice, entering inlo
any fun that was going on, and
being as larky and jovial a- I
youngest. Moreover, he tells a
story very well, particularl) a
story against himself."
The Soldier-Statesman
But this witness goi s on to
admit that "K of K does
undoubtedly inspire terror in
many people, men and women
alike. There is, of course, no
denying that the rougher and
harsher sidesof his charactei are
those which are most widely
known. They are so familial
already and need so little to I
insisted on that Mr. Begbi
wisely confines himself to a \< 1
few illustrations of them, Ih 1
is one :
"During the war in South
Africa it was necessary on a
certain occasion for Kitchener
to make a quick and highly
perilous journey by train. A
daring and high spirited
youngster volunteered to diive
the engine. The journey was
accomplished. The volunteer
driver, delighted that he had
got the great General safely
through most dangerouscountry,
said to Kitchener as the Chief
of the Staff passed him standing
beside his sweating engine:
"We weren't very long, sir,
were we?" To which K. of K.
replied, scarce looking at him,
"You'll have to be quicki r
going hack."
And now, as to "The Man
Who Has Made Himself a
Machine"how much truth is
there in that famous delineation
by the late G. W. Steevens?
A great deal of truth, of course,
hut not the whole truth. Mr.
Begbie, despite what he tells us
of the more amiable sides of
Lord Kitchener's nature, and
although he effects to smile at
what he calls the legend, per-
haps a little too much inclined
to say "ditto" to Mr. Steevens

Washington, 24th: The
announcement from the
White House today that
President Wilson had direct-
ed Secretaries Garrison and

ii


L
J*.
Daniels to report to him a
programme of national de-
fense caused widespread com-
ment.
. Several weeks ago the
*^fcad^ent discussed thesitua-
uon wTfti his cabinet with
^thc result that both depart-
ments began preparation of
plans to meet any emergency
and also to establish a per-
manent policy for adequate
national defence. The White
Hou^e statement gave no
reason for the announcement
stating merely that the Presi-
dent would confer on his re-
turn from Cornish with Sec-
retaries Daniels and Garrison
"To formulate a sane, reason -
able and practical programme
of national defense."
It was indicated however
in official quarters that the
determination to expedite
the plans being made result-
ed from a consideration of
the possibilities of the inter-
national situation.
Washington:Orders were
issued today with the approv-
al of President Wilson to
Major General Funston to re-
pel with force if necessary
any firing into American ter-
ritory during the fighting be-
tween the Mexican factions
on the border and a note was
despatched to General Car
ranza advising him to this ef
feet Soon afterwards advices
from Carranza headquarters
to his representatives here
said that the General had i*
sued orders not toattack Vil
la forces near Nogale^, and
gave assurances that the Car
ranza forces which had occu
pied Naco would witndraw.
Washington;The Amori
can note on submarine wai
fare was presented at Berlin
by Ambassador Gerard and
was made public today.
It reveals that Germany
has been informed that it is
the intention of the United
S'|es to regard as "Deliber
jjA- unfriendly" any repeti
^on by Germany s naval
commanders of Acts in con
tradiction of American rights.
The United States annoiin
ces that it will continue to
contend for the freedom of
the seas "From whatever
quarters violated, without
compromise, and at any cost."
In official and diplomatic
quarters the communication
is considered the strongest!
and most emphaticannounce-'
ment made by the Washing
ton "government since the be
ginning of its correspondence
with the Furopean bellige
ren ts.
President Wilson returned
to Cornish tonight on the as
sumption that Germany had
already admitted the illegali
| ty of her practices byattempt
\ ing to justify them as retalia
tory against Great Britain.
The United States express I
es the belief that Germany no'
i longer will refrain from disa j
|vowing the wanton act of its:
naval commander in sinking1,
the Lusitania or from offering i
reparation for the American
lives lost so far as reparation ,
can be made for a needless i
destruction of human life byj
an illegal act.
London, 24th:The Aus 1
tro Germans are driving their j
attacks against the Russian!
armies defending Warsaw
without let up and at some
points they report advancet.
The attackers are operating
however through country
which the retiring troops
have laid waste, where poor
roads are little suited for
heavy artillery movements
necessary for bombardment
of the great fortresses that
bar the way.
Washington:Red Cross
assistance will be withdrawn
from Ku ropes battlefield an in
October as there are no funds
to continue the work.
Chicago:The Inspection
Bureau is blamed for the
accident lo the steamer East-
land. President Wilson has
ordered an investigation.
Berlin:Russian war pris-
oners in the hands f the
Germans and Austrians since
the beginning of the war
numbers more than one aud
a half million officers and
men, according to a war office
announcement.
London:A despatch to
the London TIMES from Sofia

ceding to Bulgaria the Turks
portion of the Dedeaghatch
Railway was signed at

"lie will be a very indifl
historian," Mr. Begbie admits,
"who, proi ouncing judgment
on these parlous tine s, dism
es Lord Kitchener as a tedious official who did nothing
for the nation in its hour of
trial. I.onl Kitchenei contri-
buted In's personality and his
reputation and his name at the
very moment when the whole
Empire was hungering and
thirsting for a Man." Hut if
Lord Kitchener was able so
signally to satisfy ibis need,
surely it is because he is in very
truth "a Man"--and not merely
a "tenacious organiser" It is
because his personality is a
really great personality. If
Bp ice were available, it "would
be easy to show that both Mr.
3egbie and G. W. Steevens im
derrate Lord Kitchener's really
rsmarkable faculties as a diplo-

was no mere "pertinacious and
plodding administrator" (ano-

"who Boothed the angry feel

who, after all the bitterness of
their defeat, won the goodwill
of the Boer leaders." The man
who did these things was not
entirely lacking in sympathy

LORD KITCHENER.
The Human Side of The War Secretary.
J
LORD Kitchener, who w ill
receive ihe hearty congri
tulations of the nation i' daj
on the occasion of hit I
birthday, apj ears lo present a
personality to tlie biographei
thai is quite baffling in its com-
plexity. The genial author of
the "Autocrat of the Break!
Table" said that we all had six
sides to hir personalities. In
most of us this is nol very i a i
ly discerned. But the theorj
might be ingeniously corrobor-
ated in the case of "K. of K.,"
if we may judge by the stories
illustrative of his charactei
which are t<> he found in Ml
Harold Begbie's striking char
acterstudy,"Kitchener: Organ
i-.] .if Victory," re ently pub
lishcd in the U 5.A. by the
Hough ton Mifflin Co. (Appa-
rent!) there ii no English i di-
tiuii.)
"Lord Kiti In rier," Mr. B
begins by assuring us, "is nei
(her the Machine nor the < Igro
of popular imagination. I le is
perfectly human. There is, in-
deed, something frank, boj ish,
and rough humoured in his dis
position, il" isshy, an I he lias
moments when he craves for
sympathy. All the same, he
does not represent the British
ch iracter in any <>f its most
ami ible qualities. I le stands
absolute!) for the nation just
now, but lie is not the highest,
the best, not even the most
likeable of English types. Un-
roused, he is the deliberate,
work loving, brusque, quite un-
imaginative, and very thorough
British administrator; roused,
he is the jaws of the bulldog."
Thai probably gives a very
fail ly liue impression <>l Lord
Kitchener. He is certainly
human enough not to be entire-
1 > an ogre or entirely a machine.
But we shall see that Ins per
sonalit) is compli x. Let us
glanci firs! al the most human
and mosl attractive side of him.
The Human "K. of K."
"Among his relations were
two dear diminutive old "
ladies, who lived in Phillimore-
gardens, Kensington, bj name
the Misses Hutcliinson, and
Kitchener was no dearer to
these charming spinsters than
they to him. I le wrote to them
brightly and boj ishl) by almost
even mail and whenever he
relumed lo London the house
in Phillimore gardens was not
only his regular head-quarters,
but the first goal at whi h he
aimed Before he went to
Egypt f>r Ins advance to Khar
toum the) | resented him with
a gold headed Swagger cane,
and when the a Ivancc was ac
complished and the photogra-
pher arrived to make . picture
f the General and his staff
Kitchener seated himself in the
Ci litre of the group with this
stick- held so ostentatious!) that
the old ladies in Kensington
could not fail to recognise it
when the photograph appeared
in the illustrated papers. That,
I think, is a charming touch in
the man of blood and iron."
And Mr. Begbie fjoes on to
tell how the victor of Khartoum
Sent lhe.ni roses from Cordon's
grave; how Oil his return to
London he hastened to visit
them, and asked for "a jolly
tea like the teas of old da)
biead and jam and no people" i
and how tin y would sit
on eithei side of him. stud) ing
his bronzed lace with their
small, smiling shrewd eyes,
teasing him, chaffing I
adoring him and giving him
sound advii e.
That is a pleasant picture,
and at the same time convinc-
ing evidence, suiely, that there
is a very human Kitchener.
()ne may be v< ry human, how-
ever, and yet to all appearances
very grim. It will come as a
surprise to most readers, pro
bably, to learn that "K. of K."
is ii 1 merely human, but can
be v en light-hearted and con
vivial. 01 this also Mr. begbie
has unii i able proof. Ilis
first witness is Dr. Clermmit
Gauneau. an archaeologist who
served with Kitchener in the
PalestineSurve) in the late 'si v-
enties and who describes him
as "a good fellow in the fullest
acceptance of the word . .
His high spirits and cheeriness
formed an agreeable contrast to
the serious, grave character of
some of his comrades." It
might be supposed that these
companionable qualities had
disappeared with his youth, hut
no Listen to "a man of \ei\
great Social importance" on the
War Secretary of to.day : "I
have never felt the least dread
of Kitcbener; he has stayed
with me, and has been perfectly
jolly and nice, entering into
any fun that was going on, and
being as larky and jo\ i I as the
youngest. Moreover, he tells a
stor) very well, particular!) a
story against himself."
The Soldier-Statesman.
But this witne on to
admit that "K of K." does
undoubtedly inspire t< rror in
man) i eople, men and woi
alike. 1 here is, of COUl . no
denying that the rougl i
harshei sides of his character are
those which are m< lei)
known. They are so Familial
already and need so little to 1 i
insisted on that Mr. Begbi
wise!) confines himself toa i
few illustrations of them, 11
is one :
"] lui ing the wai in South
Africa it was u< cessary on
i. rtain oc< asion foi Kitchi ni
to make a quick and highly
perilous journey by train. A
daring and high spi r i t e d
youngster volunteered to drive
'the engine. The journey was
accomplished. The volunteer
diner, delighted that he had
got the great General safely
through mosl dangi rouscountry,
said to Kitchener as the Chief
ol the Staff passed him standing
beside his sweating engine:
"We weren't very long, sir,
were we?" To which K. of K.
replied, scarce looking at him,
"You'll ha\e to be quii
going back."
And now, as to "The Man
Who Mas Made Himself
Machine"how much trutl
there in that famous d< lunation
by the late G. W. Sieevi
A great deal of truth, of coursi .
but not the whole truth. Mi
Begbie, despiti whal he tells us
of the more amiable suits ol
Lord Kitchener's nature, and
although he effect! to smile at
what he calls the legend, pei
haps a little too much inclined
to say "ditto" to Mr. Steevens
Lord Kitchener, in his i yes, is

July 26th 1915.
Washington, 24th:- The
announcement from the
White House today that
President Wilson had direct-
ed Secretaries Garrison and
1


Daniels to report to him a
firogramme of national de-
ense caused widespread com-
ment.
Several weeks ago the
lit discussed thesitua-
tion with his cabinet with
Jl'c result that both depart-
ments began preparation of
plans to meet any emergency
and also to establish a per-
manent policy for adequate
national defence. The White
House statement gave no
reason for the announcement
stating merely that the Presi-
dent would confer on his re-
turn from Cornish with Sec-
retaries Daniels and Garrison
"To formulate a sane, reason*
able and practical programme
of national defense "
It was indicated however
in official quarters that the
determination to expedite
the plans being made result-
ed from a consideration of
the possibilities of the inter-
national situation.
Washington:Orders were
issued today with the approv-
al of President Wilson to
Major General Funston to re-
pel with force if necessary
any firing into American ter-
ritory during the lighting be-
tween the Mexican factions
on the border and a note was
despatched to General Car
ranza advising him to this ef
feet Soon afterwards advices
from Carranza headquarters
to his representatives here
said that the General had is
sued orders not toattack Vil
la forces near Nogales, and
gave assurances that the Car
ranza forces which had OCCU
pied Naco would witndraw.
Washington;The Ameri
can note on submarine war
fare was presented at Berlin
by Ambassador Gerard and
was made public today.
It reveals that Germany
has been informed that it is
the intention of the United
S>'|es to regard as "Deliber
jyjy unfriendly" any repeti
^ron by Germany s naval
commanders of acts in con
tradiction of American rights.
The United States nnnoun
ces that it will continue to
contend for the freedom of
the seas "From whatever
quarters violated, without
compromise, and at any cost."
In official and diplomatic
quarters the communication
is considered the strongest
and most emphatic announce-
ment made by the Washing
ton government since the be
ginning of its correspondence
with the F.uropean bellige
rents.
President Wilson returned
to Cornish tonight on the as
sumption that Germany had
already admitted the illegali
| ty of her practi< es byattempt
ling to justify them as retalia
tory against Great Britain.
The 1 nited States express
es the belief that Germany no
i longer will refrain fromdisa
!vowing the wanton act of its
naval commander in sinking
the Lusitania or from olfering
reparation for the American
lives lost so far as reparation
can be made for a needless
destruction of human life by
an illegal act.
London, 24th:The Aus
tro Germans are driving their
attacks against the Russian
armies defending Warsaw
without let up and at some
points they report advancet.
The attackers are operating
however through country
which the retiring troops
have laid waste, where poor
roads are little suited for
heavy artillery movements
necessary for bombardment
of the great fortresses that
bar the way.
Washington:Red Cross
assistance will be withdrawn
from Kurortes battlefield an in
October as there are no funds
to continue the work.
Chicago:The Inspection
Bureau is blamed for the
accident to the steamer Fast-
land. President Wilson has
ordered an investigation
Berlin:Russian war pris-
oners in the hands of the
Germans and Austiians since
the beginning of the war
numbers more than one and
a half million officers and
men, according to a war office
announcement.
London:A despatch to
the London TIMES from Sofia
today say that the convention
ceding to Bulgaria tlie Turks
portion of the Dedeaghatch

knows ihe rifchl person for n |
particular undertaking;, still]
a in.in who yields to no social
pressure in in* sphere ol patron
age and si ill a mini who is an
absolute terror to the grafter
and to the fool." At the War
Office he declares, Lord Kitcli
finer is "nothing more than a
must dutiful oihcial" sparing
himself no pains, sacrificing his
nights and days, struggling with
all powers to fulfil his trust, bol
without vision and without
inspiration." A n d, a ga i n,
"The re.iilv fundamental char
acteristic of Lord Kitchener is
. tenai it)."
"He will be a very indiffi i l
historian," Mr. Begbie admits,
"who, proi g judgment
on thi se pa us tim< s, dismiss
cs Lord Kitchener as a dry and
tedious official who did nothing
for the nation in its hour ol
trial. Lord Kitchenei contri-
buted his personality and his
reputation and his name at the
very moment when the whole
Empire was hungering and
thirsting for a Man." Hut if
Lord Kitchener was able so
signally to satisfy tin's need,
surely it is because he is in very
truth "a Man"and not merely
a "tenacious organiser It is
because his personality is n
really great personality. If
space were available, it would
be easy to show that both Mr.
3egbie and (',. \V. Steevens un-
derrate Lord Kitchener's really
rsmarkable faculties as a diplo-
matist and a statesman. It
was no men "pertinacious and
plodding administrator" (ano-
ther of Mr. Regbie's phrases]
"who Booth the angry feel
ings of Captain Man hand and
who, after all the bitterness of
their defeat, won the goodwill
of the Boei leaders." The man
who did these things was not
entirely lacking in sympathy
and imagination. lie was
something much finer than a
"Machine.''
