Instruction .From Washington

Instructions have been received from

headquarters to give publicity to the
opportunity for young men to obtain
oonrmissions in the Engineer Corps of
the army, and to get into; service . lm-'
mediately, if they are qualified men-,
tally, morally and physically. '
The original instructions from Wash,
ing were to give such candidates un
til December 22, but - as the orders
only reached Honolulu yesterday the
time ia to be 'extended, but officers at
headquarters suggest that, those' Who
have an idea of going into this branch
of th army aa officers should' report
at once. They are to be given com
missions as second lieutenanta.
The order states that "on account
of the large number of vacancies ' in
the corps of engineers in the; regular
service these examinations are to bo
held. Tbe vacancies are to be filled,
first by cadets aa they graduate from
the. Military Academy; second, through
competitive examination of other can
didntea. Candidates mutt be unmar
ried citizens of the United Ktatee, be
tween the agea of 21 and 39 years of
age and hold diplomas showing gra
duation in an engineering course from
an approved technical school. '
For persona now in the military ser
vice mental examinations will be bold.
It is realized that' men in the service
serving either aa officers or enlisted
men cannot, withont neglecting' other
Important work prepare themselves for
this character of examination.- Author
ity has, therefore, been asked of, and
has been granted by the War Depart
ment, to hold a -special ret of exami
nations for those who are in tlio ser
vice at the time.
Candidates in the. service must show
their moral fitness, proof of such fit
ness to be given by thtslr commanders.
