WASHINGTON,. Jan. . Secretary Tall
today sent to congress drafts of several Im
portant bills designed to Increase the ef
ficiency, of the army.. Accompanying each
bill was a letter of transmittal explaining
It. The bills were Introduced today lV Rep
resentative Hull, chairman of thei house
committee on military affairs.
One of these measures., provides for a
svparntion of the field from the coast ar
tillery, retaining the -corps- organisation of
the latter. The coast artillery Is Increased
by officers and men necessary for the tor
pedo, defense. of the .harbors .. and an at
tempt, Is made by Increase of pay to remedy
the,, present Impopslbllity of retaining
highly-trained ineq.vTty hill provides tor
greater- flexibility In the companies of coast
artillery. The field artillery is increased by
six. bntteiles and Is. given., regimental or
ganization. The total Increase In both ar
rangements provided Cur Is $.000 men and
the estimated cost, fen- t,rie flrstTear la
$2,000,000. In addition there will be an esti
mated expense of, $5.5fio,coo for barracks, gun
sheds, ctct tp covel; 'period of five years.
' Renerre Arnr to Be Created.
Another bill Is designed to provide a par
tial reservo for coet defenses In case of
actual Impending war. The bill provides
fur a force. not to, exceed 60,000 men who
will have Served not less than one complete
enlistment In the regular army. They are
to be enlisted for flve-yxar terms and to be
carried on the rolls of the military secre
tary's, office, to be allowed to live where
they please In the Cnlted Slates, but to be
subject to call by -the president, of ten days
each, year ,or Instruction, and on the out
break of a foreign war to be called Into
active aervlce. Secretary Taft explains that
the bill .provides means, rif enabling the
president to comply w(tn the act of Febru
ary 2, .1901, to Increase the army to 100,000
men In case of an emergency. The total
cost Is estimated at about $2,000,000 a year.
The secretary says: : . :

would practically double its efficiency, anil
