the eastern war as the topic of tho

newspapers with very few dissenting
voices welcome the Dominion's gift
for Its own sake and as a memorable
step towards consolidating the empire.
Uncertainty exists as to whether
the government proposes to receive

that tht ships constitute nn addition

The only feature of the policy caus

Army in Three Divisions.
Washington, Dec. 9. Unsparing
condemnation of those Who wrould
f loin "misplaced sentimentality or
lazy self interest" caat the Filipinos
upon the world in the state of help
lessness and before they had acquired
the full benefits of American civilisa
tion, is a strong feature In the annual
report of Secretary of War Henry L
Stlmson. Many other subjects of in
terest are treated in the report, such
as the relations of the national guard
to the army, tho improvement of the
army tactical methods, the inadequacy
of the present reserve law, tho crying
need of citizenship for the Porto
Ricans, the conservation of the na
tional water powers In navigable
Blreams and the advisability of
amending tho Panama canal tolls act
so as to reimpose tolls on American
coastwise shipping leaving tho water
Dealing first with purely military
subjects, the secretary states the
strength of the regular army at the
beginning of tho present fiscal your
was 82,305. on Increase during the
year of 189 olllcers nnd 7,834 enlisted
men. Do says the spirit of tho per
sonnel of the army continues to im
prove, nltributable not only to the
work of the service schools and the
general staff, but to the practical op
portunities afforded hy the recent ma
neuvers and changes In organization
ind methods. Unfit officers are
speedily discovered under tho search
ing tests of field conditions.
In treating of the morals of the
army, Secretary Stlmson assorts., his
belief that, the so called antl canteen
legislation has been responsible for
much vice, a statement which he sup
ports hy a recital of the results of his
own Inspection of forty-nine of tho mo
bile inny posts, where he found the
military reservations adjoined by
dives and 111 resorts of the vilest char
ncfer. These conditions he believes
to be the ultimate causes "which
make the record of our army In this
respect shameful beyond that of the
army of any elvillzed nation."
Saving in Philippines.
Under the head of reorganization
of the foreign garrisons, tho report dl
lects attention to the benefits attend
ing the substitution for twelve reduced
strength regiments In tho Philippines,
by a garrlaon of six regiments of full
strength with a resulting saving ot
over 1,000,(100 per year, rue lmme
dlale completion of tho posts at Pan
.una and Hawaii, he sttongly urged al
by far tly most important items ol
military expenditure for the immedl
The tactical reorganization of the
army on the basis of three Infantry
divisions, the report shows, has nro
Kressed as far as possible without
congressional assistance In the waj
,,f providing for large ample posts,
and a series of conferences of the pen
..rni officers of the arniv hns been
planned for Ihls winter. As a result,
the time now necessary at the out
break of war to organize the regulnt
army will be dispensed with.
Militia Pay Bill.
A strong plea Is made for the pas
sage of the militia pay bill, now pond
ing, because the 100,000 men now In
the national guard, eager and am
bitious to be of service In case of war
arc- practically unavailable under pres
ent conditions. These men, the secre
tary says, should not only be trained
for war In timo of peace nnd paid by
the national government, but it must
be possible to transfer them immedi
ately Into the general military force
and not militia In tlmo of war.
