in enlisting, equipping and supplying

in them as well as tho other regi

pines as soon as they were needed for
active operations. If tho present
number of transports is insufficient,
more will be procured. The men al
ready enlisted for tho Philippine ser
vice will ho sent at once, and tho new
regiments will bo forwarded as fast as
they are organized and needed. While
there has been some suggestion that
the new regiments will be used as a
resorvo force, it may bo stated posi
lively that those regiments, as well as
more, if they can bo usod, will bo sont
to reinforce General Otis.
Secretary Koot sent a copy of tho

Aruifd With Latest OmiM.
The districts which are not thor
oughly covered in the recruiting of
tho first ton regiments will be visited.
It is tho intention to have the regi
ments give more attention to firing
than to any other feature of the drill.
Tho men will bo armed as are the
regular infantry regiments with the
magazine army rifle.
The selection of tho majors and
company officers for the regiments Is
now occupying tho attention of the
secretary, and the men are being
chosen from among the volunteers
who were called out in the Spanish
war. The officers will be distributed
as equitably as possibly among the
different states, but the efficiency
records of the men will govern to a
greiit extent in their selection.
It appears from todaj-'s orders that
tho ten new regiments are to be
mainly recruited in New England and
tho middle and central western
states. Kansas and Pennsylvania have
apparently been selected as the best
field for recruits. It is said that no
spocial effort is to be made to secure
recruits in the southern states. This
is due, it is said, to the experience of
the officers who operated in that quar
ter fur recruits for the ten volunteer
regiments just organized. The onlj'
places where difficulty was expected
in securing men was in Georgia, Ala

states and tho two northwestern Pa
Total Army Strength. 95.045.
Today's action will add 13,000 men
to the enlisted strength of the army
and increases tho total strength of
tho army to J5,045 men. The total
number of volun 3ers called into ser
vice is 30,170 men, being 4,893 men
short of the total authorized volunteer
establishment of 3-5,000. It is stated
at the department that the number of
volunteers called into service is re
garded as amply sufficient to meet a
deficiency, and there is no possibility
that the remaining 4,093 volunteers
will be called for.
