EDITORIAL CORRESPONDENCE. Washington, Dec. ^1. "The first decision of the First International Court of Justice that ever sat in this world has just been rendered. The case was one growing out of a controversy between Honduras and Guata- mala and Salvador. The'first country accused the two last named of having tirged and assisted certain disaffected Honduran politicians to organize a revolution against the present govern ment of Honduras, .^t the conferencf of deegates from the five Central Am crican Republics which mot here las' winter. It was propossed tbat an Inter national Court of Justice should br eKtablished to adjudicate disputes o' this character arising between o* among the Republics concerned, or be tween citizens of the Central American and foreign countries. The Cour is to be a permanent tribunal rontinu ous'v in session and.ail the five Re publics solemnly agreed to submit al' their complaints against one ..another to this Court and abide by it .s decis Ions. It was an absolutely new de parture In International intercourse and the outcome of the first case to be tried before it has been awaited, es- wicially in Dipomatic circlp.<;. with the keenest Interest. The test of the value of the court of course would be the manner In which its deciHion wa" received by the unsuccessful litigant Tn this first case the result seems tr have been all that could possibly, bp desired. The court held in a cenera' way that the accusation of Hondurar was not well grounded and that this country therefore had no lust cause to complain against either Ouatamala or Salvador, and Honduras has ac- cepited the verdict in the best possible spirit. It is certainly a long, lonp step In advance because even the most blood thirsty can hardly argue t|iat a peaceful lawsuit is not better, even for the defeated litigant, than any Icind of a war. In this particular case war would have been inevitable if the court had not been constituted because Honduras was convinced that her political exiles had started a revolutionary movement at the Instigation of the government of Ouatamala and would have declared war against her long a?o if the case had not been taken into court. • • The success of this experiment has impressed Secretari- Root so strongly that he is sorlously considering asking Venezuela to submit the claims against that government by American citizens to this same Central .\m- erica Court of Justice. The court is composed of some of the most eminent Jurists in Central America, one from each of the five Republics, and as between Venezuela and the X .Tnited States would seem to be wholly disinterested. If the judges entertain any prejudice it would be more likely in favor of Venezuela than against her and Mr. Root feels therefore that if the United States is willing to submit to their arbitrament Venezuela ought to be. If this proposition should be made and acceded to and if the verdict Should be at all satisfactory the chances are that the European powers having claims against Venezuela would endeavor to reach a settlement in the same way. This would not only bring about a most'y mo-e satisfactory condition touching Venezuela fend the countries at loggerheads with her bat It would immeasurably dignify and exalt the Central American Court and make it one of the great powers for peace in the world. e * » The rather startling announcement •waa made from the War Department this week that it would be impossible for the United States to put into the field a fully equipped army of even 260,000 men within six months. The announcement has come as the result of a quiet investigation made by or­ der of the President. The trouble seems to be that In ail the arsenals of | the country there are not more than J 200,000 of the new Springfield rifles^ while Including the practically ob.-,o- lete Krag-Jorgensens oflly 350.000 men could be armed. There are probably 9.000.000 men in the UnUed States at present able to bear arms but as the President remarked, if they were called Into the field all but about 200,000 of them would have to be armed with shotguns and scythes. Not only are we short of small arms but it seems that there is not enough field artillery In the country of the modern type for an army of 250,000 men. And while the shortage of small arms could be overcome in a few months it would be years before a big army could be properly equipped with modem cannon. During the Civil War, when a gun could be cast In a foundry. It was only a matter of six weeks after the order was ?iven before the weapon would be In the field. But to complete one of the modern long range, high power weapons of today at least a year Is required even after all the raw material has been assembled. Brigadier Oeneral Crozier (formerly a man. by the way, who invented the disappearing gun carriage and is now Chief of Ord nance of the Army) declares that to equip an army of 2.000,000 with the nresent cannon making facilities would require no less than l.T roars. "The plans we are now following." ?ald General Crozier in a recent interview here, "contemplate a siipply if 470.000 modem Springfield weap- ins.v with ."JOO rounds of ammunition 'or each, which will provide for an irmy of .")nfl.ono men. The 30.000 who would not have rifles would consist if officers, hospital men. non-conibat- \nts, and others, who are to take care tt the fighting men. These rifles, however, will not be ready for a long time. We expect to have enough to arm 275.000 men in two years. They are coing •nto the hands of the regular soldiers rapidly, and only a few of the regular roops, notably the marines, are without them. "The Springfield and Rock Island irsena' plants are not working full time. but at the regular day rate they are capable of turning out 600 completed rifles a day. By working 24 hours a lay they cou'd turn out 1.500 weapons, or enough to arm a regiment. Mext in value to the new Springfield is the Krag, with which the war with Spain was fought. These rifles, in their time, were considered superior to any, but when they met the Mau­ sers it was discovered that they were deficient in range and rapidity of fire. The Mauser was a better gun." The Krag. which has been turned over to the national guard, is obsolete, so far as the regular army Is concerned, it being from 500 to 1,000 yards shorter tn range than the Springfield, the Japanese, and other foreign rifles. Military authorities, however, still consider them In the scheme of defense, and they have provided a store of ammunition amounting to 100 rounds for all of the 175.000 In the country. Back of the Krag is the famous old 4.'j-caliber b'ack powder Springfield, used in the latter dajs of the civil wa!r: all of the subsequent Indian fighting, and for a few days In Cuba Several of the regiments of volunteers used them, until the ofilcers discov- erei^ that .emoke from their discharge simply made a target for the Spaniards to fire at. and thepe rpglraents were relecated to the rear. How many of these rifles are left in the country the army men do not know, but they could not be used excopf for the use of home guards. "Taken all and a'l." continued Oen. Crozier. "there are not 500.000 rifles of. every description In the country tcday that could be used by an array. Of modern weapons, there is only about one-third of that number. Consequently. President Roosevelt was not wrong in his information concerning the dangerous lack of modern weapons in the country, and the prop- eily trained men to use them." C. F. S.
