NEW POSIT10N CREATED
An Army Council Will Dlract
Lord Eshcr'c Commission Hn3 Made
' Roport Outlining Firm
London, Jan. 31. Tho report of the royal
commission known as tho Lord Eshcr
commission, which was appointed last No
vember for the purpose of advising tho
fiovormnont concerning the creation of a
bourn for tho administrative business of
the War office, has boon Issued, and It
confirms the change foreshadowed by tho
Associated Press on November 2Sthk
namply. that tho post of commandcr-ln-chlrf
of the army will bo abolished.
TVltb Oio approval of tho King and act
ing upon the recommendations of the com
mission, tho Government has decided to
appoint aji army council framed upon the
admiralty model; to abolish the office of
commander-in-chief of the army and to
create a now posl, that of Inspector-general,
whoso principal duty will be to In
spect and report on tho ofllclency of the
IN THREE SECTIONS.
Tho report Is divided Into threo sec
tions, the first of which relates to the
defense committee, the si-cond to tho army
council and tho third to Inspection. It
points out the iifoesslty of greater per
manence In the defense committee In or
der to Insure a continuous policy, and It
suggests tho addition to tho existing de
fense committer of a permanent secre
tary holding office for live years, two
naval officers selected by tho Admiralty,
two military officers chosen by tho Vice
roy of India, and. If possible, other ro
lonlal representatives, holding office for
two years. With regard to tho War of
fice, tin; commission suggests that tvo
Secretary of State for War bo placed In
the same position as the First Lord of the
Admiralty, directly responsible to tho
crown and to Parliament. The constitu
tion of tho army council aims at decen
tralization, the Individual members of tho
council being Intrusted with different
branches, such as armament, supply,
WANT MILITARY MEMBERS.
In this connection the roport remarks,
significantly: "Now measures demand now
men. We therefore attach special Import
ance to tho appointment of military mem
bers not too closely connected with ex
isting methods, and who, therefore, aro
not likely to be" embarrassed by the tra
ditions of a system which Is to be radical
Tho commission considers tho abolition
of tho post of commander-in-chief to be
Imperative, and It urges the divorco of
the administrative from the executive de
partment Tho Inspector-general is to be appointed
for jive years. His sole function, aided
by a staff, is to report upon actual fact3,
without exnrosfilng opinions on policies.
The Lord Eshor committee reported
with unusual promptitude. Sir George
Sydelham Clarice. Governor of Victoria,
one of the members of the commlttoo.
only arrived in England December 20th,
v.hlle the report Is dated January ISth.
It Is understood that all the necessary
changes will bo carried out with the least
possible delay after obtaining the formal
consent of Parliament.
Whero It Is necessary, the report Is i
most practical and business-like. It says J
It Is "necessary to make a complete
broach with the past and endeavor to re
constitute the War office, with an eye
single to the effective training and prep
a rat Ion of the military forces for war."
and again It says, "The object should be
to secure for the British Empire with tho
least possible derangement of the exist
ing machinery the Immediate advantages
which a general staff conferred upon Ger
many." Contrasting tho efficiency of the Ad
miralty with the Inefficiency of the War
office the report complains that tho lat
ter "has no thinking department."
The morning papers editorially applaud
the report of the Lord Esher commission
as thorough and practical, and express
the hope that the Government will exe
cute the reforms with courage and
