Carter Makes His Annual Report, Showing that Army is Against Plan Now Much Discussed. Publishers- Press. Chicago, utc. -in Lis annual re port Brigadier General William H. Carter, commander of the department of the lakes, speaks of a noticeable feeling of unrest among the officers of the regular army stationed within his department. The report says: "During the last year my attention has been attracted freuqently by what may be termed a serious spirit of un rest among officers, brought on mainly by public discussions of proposed measures of elimination and promo tion by selection. However desirable may be the measures designed to bring about the selection of the best qualified for advancement or the prep aration of promotion for those believ ed be unfit for further coommand, the army is certainly against their enact ment. The impression has been forced on me that the officers as a body, par ticularly those of the line, while rec ognizing the desirability of providing promotion for exceptionally meritori ous men, are unwilling to trust their careers to boards of officers who, of necessity, must base their conclusions on personal acquaintance or efficiency reports, which latter are not regarded as accurate indexes of either character or Qualifications."
