report of tho Adjutant General of tho
Army, llrlgudlor General Corbln, to tho
Secretary of War, was made public to
day. General Corbln sums up tho mili
tary forces now In service of tho
United States as follows:
Regular army, 61,580; volunteers,
34,574; total, 99,160.
Tho regular establishment consists
of ten regiments of cavalry, 'sovon of
artillery, nnd tvvent-flve of Infantry.
Tho volunteer establishment consists
of ono regiment of cavalry, twenty
four of Infantry, and n Porto Rico bat
talion. Tho distribution of these troops up
to October 1, last, was as follows:
In tho United States. 34.229; Porto
Rico, 3363; Cuba, 11,187; Philippines,
32,315; en routo to tho Philippines,
17.099; Alnskn, 499; Hawaiian Islands,
General Corbln adds tho following to
"It is ordered that by December 1,
next, all the Infantry regtments.
United States Volunteers, shown nbovo
as in tho United States will havo sail
ed for tho Philippines. These, with
the troops now there, will give a to
tal strength of 2117 ofllcers nnd 63,605
enlisted men (an aggregate of 65,725)."
General Corbln recommends that tho
volunteers who rc-enlUted In tho Phil
ippines, office is and men, bo awarded
suitably inscribed medals.
During tho year thero havo been 62,
175 enlistments and ro-cnllstmcnts, of
which 53,021 were nntlvo born nnd 9,
151 fprclgn born. In point of color
56,154 vcro white, 6000 colored and 20
The following recommendation la
made for extra pay for the officers
serving in 6ur now possessions:
"Tho pay of all ofllcers below tho
grado of brigadier gcncrnl should bo
Increased nt least 33 1-3 per cent, vvhllo
on duty In Cuba or our new posses
sions. Most of theso gentlemen havo
families that they aro unablo to havo
with them and therefore nio compelled
to maintain two establishments."
Of tho criticisms of tho staff organi
zations of tho nrmy, Gcncrnl Corbln
says: "Much has been written or lato
concerning n better staff system.
Ours may bo, una doubtless Is, open to
Improvements, but It should bo borno
In mind that tho present organization
is tho result of years of legislation
born of tho best thought and labor of
our best military men nnd has stood
successfully tho test of all our wars.
The criticisms of our system nro too
often tho result of disappointment.
Seldom has thcro ono appeared in print
whoso author has not been a long
standing applicant for n placo in one
of tho staff corps or departments. Tho
suggestion that our staff officers aro
not experienced in tho duties of lino
officers Is not borno out by facts."
Tho rtpdrt dwells oh tho courtesies
ehdwn our troops by tho British Gov
ernment officials, whllo stopping at
Gibraltar nnd clsewhero on route to
tho Philippines and says this Inter
national courtesy will long Hvo In tho
memories of both parties to the spon
taneous exchange. -?
As the Increased army calls for an
additional number of Military Aca
demy cadets to fill vacancies, It is re
commended that tho President be au
thorized to appoint ten annually and
that two bo appointed at largo from
Satisfaction is expressed that tho
nrmy canteen embarrassment has been
removed from tho War Department by
tho action of Congress In establishing
Recommendation is mado that non
commissioned ofllcers bo given addi
tional pay In order to attract to those
places a worthy class wining to stay in
th'oso Rrades, and tho twenty-flvo
years servlco as an enlisted man shall
bo sufficient to admit to tho retired
list of enlisted men.
Tho condition of tho artillery ser
vlco, especially of tho sea coast, tho
report describes as not altogether sat
isfactory. It is bellovcd that tho tlmo
has arrived when tho artillery branch
of tho service should bo reorganized
and tho field artillery separated from
thnt engaged in tho coast defense
It is recommended that tho regimen
tal organization of tho artillery bo
abolished and that a corps of field ar
tillery In and of sea const artillery bo
provided for, separate and distinct
from each other.

Party of Some Thirty to fo America
Orgin'zitlon Now Being Formed -Competmt
Man at Head of Affairs Offer from
There is just now being formed In Hono
lulu a select party Of young Hawaiian men
and vomen singers whose Intention It Is to
tour the world, giving people at the differ
ent places an opportunity to hear Hawai
ian muslc,,both vocal and instrumental.
A young Hawaiian, well known as a
man thoroughly acquainted with Hawai
ian music and one who has frequently had
occasion to form musical organizations
among the Hawaiian, Is at the head of af
fairs. Already nearly all the material has been
secured and, as soon as letters from differ
ent managers in the States and Europe are
received, the work of the preparation for
the long trip will be begun.
A splendid offer has just been received
from a German Count and it may lie just
possible that the singers will go to Europe
first. An answer has been sent to the
Count and further word will be awaited.
The scheme Is an excellent one and will
undoubtedly prove a success. An attempt
on such a large scale has never been made
Hawaiian music is much appreciated
by all musically inclined Americans who
come here and there is no doubt u hatever
that, the young Hawaiian's will make a
hit In America.

PORTO RICO WANTS LAWS.
Ponce, Porto Rico, Octob:r 25. While
commerce and commercial enterprises of
every kind are waiting for the United
States to give to Porto Rico a market In
place of the one taken from her more than
a year ago, nature seems to be trying to
show how much she can do for this fertile
Young sugar cane that was broken down
and flooded by the tornado has straighten
ed up of its own accord and Is growing all
the more luxuriantly on account or me oe-
posit 01 muu nnu sou rrom me mountains
which was washed dou n on It. It Is true
the older cane was ruined, but cane that
was mature nnd about ready to cut was
renlanted In nature's own wav.
The change In postage between United
States and Porto Rco from foreign to do
mestic rates was welcomed by everyone
with much rejoicing. It makes the Island
seem much nearer to the new mother
country and already the quantity of mall
matter has nearly doubled.
Spanish law still prevails, but it Is mo
dified and otherwise changed by arbitrary
military orders and everything Is In a
great state of confusion and uncertainty.

which very frequently differ very materi

as have not been known in most countries
since the middle ages.
And yet, In spite of these conditions, and
It Is claimed the lack of proper recognition
by Congress, much progress is being made
In Americanizing the bland. But, the fact
must not be overlooked that the Porto Rl
cans are losing the kindly feeling they
have had for Americans, and, It Isasserted,
unless Congress acts and acts promptly, It
will take years to overcome the evil ac
complished by a few months' delay.

On McVeigh Informing him that such

In the morning, and then to bo taken to

This Incensed tho port offlceis, who

Mr. Schultze, seeking to restoro good
