IN THE PHILIPPINES.
American. Solcuers Must Remain, says
Gen. Wood.-There Must be no
Reduction In Army.
Washington, Oct. 18.-With a total
foree of 20,043 officers and enlisted
men in the Philippine Islands, Major
Gen. Leonard Wood, commanding the
Philippines division, deems' that it
would be most unwise to make any
considerable reduction in the strength
of the garrison. In his annual report
received by the war department, Gen.
Wood d(ee0lme. that conditions are
generally petteeful in the Philippine
archipelago, but'lthinks that the main
tenance of an adequate military force
there is absolutely necessary for the
support of the civil government.
"We 'are far from home, and in
case of foreign disturbance, even
with oni troops eoneentrated at Mani
]a the force available would be barely
sufficient to defend it from serious
attack." In these words Gen. Wood
gives another reason, which the war
department authorities regard as co
gent why the garrison in the Philip
pines should not be reduced. Contin
uing, he says:
"Moreover, a strong garrison
should be maintained here until con
flitions pertaining to the civil govern
ment are well established and the ani
mosities and disappointments inci
dent to the building up of local gov
ernment under new and perhaps
strained conditions have passed
