(Special to Tho Time*-Dispatch.]
Washington, July 3.?There Is much |
doubt In certain sections of the country
as to whether the National Guard will I
hold Its usual encampments thla sum?
mer. There should bo no reason fori
such doubt at tills time. Inasmuch as
the joint resolution offered In the
House on July 1 to appropriate the sum
of $1,1150,000 for this purpose readily,
passed, ami the :<ame action was illkeh
in tie Semite yesterday.
I This doubt .nose by reason of -.he
. f iet that president Tuft vetoed the
regular army appropriation bill bo mo
time am> for cortaln reasons which
were satisfactory to himself. He saw,
however, that for the National Guard
to be deprived of In annual encamp?
ment would not only be a hardship oil
the Individual members, but would also,
work.'to the detriment of the organi?
zation generally. Consequently, on
ttur.e he addressed the fallowing
i n;. >ssage o>i the subject to Congress:
i 'Very complete arrangements have
beert tentatively prepared for the par?
ticipation in ?amps and manoeuvres of
a large portion of the organized mili?
tia of the United States, Preparations
have been made tor this most Impor?
tant military instruction, hotli by the
flitted States and by the \arlous states
whose orsar.l/ed mllltla will part'cl
pate. The magnitude of the manoeuvre
.plans can be seen whtj n t is estimated
that Tf'.eOu officers and enlisted men
of the organised militia will take par'
in them during the coming year.
Should It be Impossible to e,;rry out
the contemplated manoeuvres It will
be at ? very great loss of efficiency
to tho troops concerned, and will en?
tail a irr.at disappointment to the
thousands of men who. with the ma?
noeuvres in v ew. have een prepar?
ing then,selves therefor
'In contemplation of the manoeuvres,
It has been necessary already to ex?
tol.,| th.. sum of t&O.OOd from tho un?
expended balance of last yrnr's appro?
priation for manoeuvre purposes for
the organized mllltla. which sum will
be lost should the project of tr.ar.oeu?
vri.'. not be consummated.
Jr. addition to this the various State?
have made arrangements to expend
large amounts from their apportion?
ment from the funds appropriated by
Congress under section i?JGl. revised
statutes, or from funda appropriated
by the. Bt?te.
?'Without ah appropriation by Con
gl'i ? the manoeuvre!? may not bo held.
I liave the honor, the:, fore, strongly
tc recommend and urge that the fol?
lowing Item, taken from House bill No.
IS956 (army appropriation bill) be en?
acted separately und specially $1,360,
. ncarnpment and manoeuvres, or?
ganised mllltla, 1912-n."
ThiB message was sent to Congress
whil.- both the Heus? and Senate were
In recess on nccount of tho Ilaltlmora
convention. There was nothing that
cculd bo done until the House met
Monday. At that time Congressman
Hay, of Virginia. chilrman of the
Houbo Cbmmltteo on Military Affairs,
Introduced a joint resolution which
was quickly pass- .1 and sent to Hi"
Senate', that body pasting It yester?
Tills means that all the red tape sur?
rounding thi passage of the necessary
till or resolution which would provide
for the holding of tho encampment*
this summer has beet) disposed of and
everything will go on Just as If thcie
hud been no hitch at all In the matter.
Tho Virginia troops will so to th<
place originally design.-, ted with oth?
er" from this section 01 the country,
while south Carolina. Georgia. Florida,
Alabama and other Southern a:vl r, .\r
States will encamp at Annlsto::, Ala.
At the latter place, It Is understood,
there will be about C.000 men In .amp
at the two periods selected for mobil
v.rtlon and as many or niofe v. Ill doubt
1 less be on hand at Ml Orctna.
Mr. Hay Is very much pleased that
the situation has been straightened
