It appeared fiom the remarks of '.me
member ot the committee that a "hum.
meeting" was not dcerivd advisable n-i-necessary
for the ommittee. hut noirle of
the papers have made uc:i a "holler '
that "we had to do .r melhltiB."
It was undfretood that the c imu:t"t"r
decided upon four amendments to the city
charter yctteiday behlrd the cloned doorr

have had hard sledding Another ametid'

ant more monei fi.r the maintenance!
of the lighting department. Some motlths
ago tnrthy light were taken out and I le
iltltens complained. They wctc arsurel
that the lights would be put back without I
delay after the new levy. Now It would
seem that the need of more lights la to
be mide a reason for getting more irthtl y
and Incidentally Increasing the city taxes.
In onler to get around the Interpreta
tion of District Judxe Kennedy upon ma-'
terlal designated by the city council i
where abutting property owners have t
failed to agree, an amendment will be
madeby which the council will have the
power to designate the material and tho

General Wood encounters an old dlffl
cultyln . trying, to sovn . the question of
tho fluctuation In the number of deser
tions from yoar to year. Last year the
desertions numbered 3,401. an Increase rif

Hhortntte of Artillery.
For the first time Major General Wood
111 his report Is able to present to congies
a detailed plan of the organization t
tlcld artillery In connection, wjth the gen
eral army reorganization. This general
plan, provides-that the first Increment ot
ihe skeleton flejd army shall dJO two regP
mehta 6f Ihfantry, alx battalions of field
arllllery( one field company ot signal
triops, five tteld hospitals and fve.am
tulanoo, companiea. Ry; this, standard
there Ih at present a vast shortage t
field artillery, not only for the Army, but.
fdr'the militia. The proper, proportion .of
field, gtin Is Lit per 1,000 cavalo .amj ln
tantfy, ahd on this basis there Is at pres
ent a deficit ot 213 guns or the material
for- these regiments in the rtgular ,at;my,
while the mllltln la short 617 guns.
Moreover, theri Is no' provision for ef
fective service of ammunition, and many
ot the gunk would In a single day's, fight
uih alt the ammunition which can now be
ciirrled for them. Therefore, General
Woodj- referring1 to the military, niaxlm
that superiority of fire Is 'needed before
tfobpS cap advance oVef the fteld, adds
that If we do not have this additional
arllllerj' 'tho armies are destined to ultl
mite defeat. Ho also calls attention to
the' fact that many states refuse to In-
ciadef-pr6p'r proportion ' 6f field artillery
ahd caValry lrf their mliltia because1 of
th expense, ahd he -suggests that, here
after congress' definitely appropriate
rrioney which can only -be used by 'tho
