STATE TROOPS TO WAIT
Last Guardsmen at Maneuvers Will
Find Depleted Federal Treasury.
Washington. Aug. 23. After n
month of hard work , Assistant Score
tary Oliver of the war department
concluded that he bad finally made a
satisfactory adjustment of the many
difficulties in apportioning the appro t
priation of $700,000 for pay for the
militia at the maneuvers In dlfforonl
camps throughout the country , but 11
appears that all Is not satisfactory
These funds had to be apportioned to
the quartermaster's department , the
subsistence department and the pay
department of the army for the pur
pose of quartering , feeding and paying
the state soldiers.
In some cases more state troops
than had been given In the schedule *
wore sent Into the camps nnd more ex
pense was thus attached. This caused
a deficiency in the allotment of funds
especially In the matter of pay for '
the state troops. The pay department
of the army decided to pay the troops
as long as the funds lasted , those who
came lost going unpaid. It Is possible
that congress will be asked -to make
an appropriation to cover the deflcl
and the state tioops paid next winter
