It la understood that Major (teneral
Leonard Wood, chief of ataff. has
planned the following appointments and
rhangea among high ranking officers on
duty at the War department: Tha ap
pointment of Brigadier General Clarence
R, Edwards, chief of the bureau of ln-
aular affnlrs, as a brigadier general In
the llnef on retirement of Brigadier Oen
rral Daniel 11. Brush for age on May ,
next, and the aaalgnment of General Ed
wards to duty aa assistant chief of staff
at that time, succeeding Major Oeneral
V'llilain H. Carter; and the assignment
of Oeneral Carter to command of the
Central division, with headquarters at
Chicago, succeeding Brigadier General
Ramaey D. Potta, now In command of
that division. This change in the atatus
of General Edwarda will put him In line
for advancement to tha grade of major
general. . However, no vacancy will occur
in thla grade by reason of retirement for
age before May 30, 1914, when Major
general Frederick D. Orant reaches the
Apprehension of Deaerters.
The War department la against making
unusual conditions surrounding tha pay
ment of a reward for the apprehension
ot deserters. It Is believed that to delay
prompt payment would be a mistake and
would discourage tha apprehension and
delivery ot deserters on tbe part of civi
lians. A case recently arose in which
tha queatlon Involved waa whether a man
had deserted or was abaent without leave.
He wan charged on tha company books
with being a deserter, but such an entry
is held not conclusive aa to his desertion,
and although abaent without leave the
soldier is not carried aa In desertion, and
It does not prove that he la not a de
serter. Tha notation On the company
books la held to ba an administrative
matter. During 1 consideration of this
caae the reward for apprehension waa
held up and finally the man was
charged with being abaent without leave.
Under .hose circumstances It waa not
plain that payment of a reward should
be made. Tha War department, however,
la against making tha civilian author
ities wait until oonoluslve proof of deser
tion is established or whether a man la
abaent without leave.

Military Academy Candidates.
Congreaa will be urged to change the
method ot appointing candidates for ad
mission to tha Military academy. On Sep
tember 1 there were fifty-seven vacanoles
in the corps of cadets, in many cases no
candidates having been dealgnated for
appointment. Many aenatora and repre

facilities In the civil service commission
to Select tha candidates they nominate.
When they are advlaed that they are en
titled to name a cadet at either the Mili
tary academy or Naval academy It is an
