Adji. Gen. Brock has made his annual
reports to the Secretary of War and to
Major Gen. Miles, commanding the army.
The following extracts from the report to
the Secretary are of interest:
A bill lo reorganize the line of the army,
etc., increasing the artillery by two regi
ments and each infantry regiment by two
companies, was introduced in Congress dur
ing tue rir&c HL-esiou of the Fifty-fourth Con

ably reported by the Senate Committee ou
Military Affairs, its title being changed to
"A bill to provide a modem organization
for the line of the Army." I have been
informed that it was also favorably con
sidered by the Military Committee of the
House of Representatives. It is still pend

strongly recommended by the commanding
General of the Army and by the Secretary

The post exchange continues to fulHll
in a satisfactory manner the purposes ror
which it was created. Devised eight years
ago as a substitute Tor the post trader's
store, whose discontinuance had been de
cided upon, it has developed into a very
userul auxiliary to Army administration
as an aid to discipline, contentment and
good conduct iu the Army. Nearly every
commanding officer bears testimony to
its value, originally modeled arter the
plan or canteens, in European armies, wjrh
beernges as a prominent feature, it has
progressively minimized this feature and
established a position that is peculiarly
its own, in supplying th wants of the
soldier not met by Government supplies, at
prices very little nbove the cost, the net
jiroiith being used for the improvement of

of our forest resources. Secretary Wilson
sajs further: "Our agricultural interests
in the hill country and mountain districts
are bound to surfer, Indeed are beginning
to suffer from the same caue, just as
they have suffered in other countries.
"The Department of Agriculture, through
the division of forestry, has, with scanty
appropriations, .-ndeavored to secure aud
disseminate technical information need
ful in rational forest management. It has
also experimented on methods of tree
planting, with a view to an extension of
forest areas into the forestless regions
which need the shelter and protection of
forest growth, and has increased our
kno-wlcige of the ptoperties of our tun
bers which might lead to desirable econ
omies in the future.
"A more liberal consideration of this
line of work by the Government would
scm justified by the magnitude of the
interests involved, especially since, with
the establishment or forest reservations
from the public domain, the need or tech
nical knowledge in their management has
become a necessity."

VALDE OF TRADING STAMPS
Argument on the Case in the Court
Counsel for the Compnny Contends
It is Not a Gift Enterprise With
in the Meaning of the Law.
The trading stamp case came up In the
court of appeals yesterday on appeal
from Hit, police court. Attorney A. S.
Worthinyton presented the case of the
stamp company, and Mr. Thomat that of
the District. Mr. Worlhington held that
the giving of stamps to jiurchasers of goods
entitling such purchaser to a j rrmiuni was
not a gilt enterprise within the meaning
of the law.
If the law waste be so broadlv construed
as to prohibit the giving of trading stamps,
that law would also prohibit gilts to news
boys or for other charitable puriioses. If
the law was so broad as this, it was tin
constitutional, because Congress had no
right to inter,' ere with a man's right to
legitimately dispose or his jiroperty.
Mr. Woithlngton contended that the
object of thclaw was to prohibit enterprises
where the distribution of gifts or premium
depended upon lot or chance. lie produced
authorities In support of this contention and
read from the Standard Dictionary that a
"gift-exhibition wajs a species of lottery,
allied to raffles anU policy."
Attorney S. T. Thomas, for the Distil :t,
lead the act of 1873, under which he
c'almea authority for the prosecution. He
contended that to hold out a promise of
a gift conditioned upon the collection of a
certain number of stamps was a "gilt
enterprise" within the meaning of the
lav Hv defined ''chance" to be the con
junction of circumstances more or less
favombie, and pointed out what he con
sidered the elements of ctieuce in the trad
ing stamp transaction. The purchaser
took the chnnce of not getting 990 of the
stamp-;. The merchant took the chance of
gaining an increase In business. The mer
chant also had the chance thut some of .Os
patrons would not ask for the stamps The
stamp company took the chance that sonirt
of the stamp collectors would not .xdtect
999 of the stamps, and that the Pivmium
would not have to be given. The stamp
company was not a commercial enterprise;
it was purely a gift enterprise. The stamp
company ugieed to sell the stamps to mer
chant at one-hulf of the face value ot tne
Attorney Thomas argued that thse
stamps bad no face value, and had a v-ilue
only to the man who look the chance of
getting 099 or them.
He concluded by sa3'ing that 'he de
rendants admitted that their scheme was
in viola '.Inn of the letter of the law, and
that their only contention was that It did
not iolate the spirit or the law.
Attorney Duvail tollowed for the prose
cution. Attorney Worthington closed.
The court icserved its decision.
