Gillespie, chief of en gineers, Lt. S. A., for the past year, made public today, refers to the work of con structing the fortifications that has been going on under the general scheme of the Endicott board. It adds: "The degree of defense to be provided for coaling and other naval stations scat tered all over the world for the large naval hases which must he promptly es tablished and for which appropriations are asked of congress by the navy department, for the port of Manila, Pearl harbor and llonolulu, and for the lake ports and the St. Lawrence river, should preferably be determined by a tribunal similar to that of the Endicott board. The absence of legislation on the subject of insular de fenses, a mixed board of engineers and artillery officers, organized by the secre tary of war, has already been practically considered and plans reported upon for the emergency defense of several of the most important harbors in the insular pos sessions. "Besides these, the preliminary plans actually entered upon, it might he well to invite the co-operation of the navy by the assignment of a number of naval offi cers upon a new joint board of army and naval officers appointed to revise or en large the preliminary plans of defense herctofore prypated." General Gillespie says prospects for the defenses of 3t localities have been ap proved. lHe adds: "Projects for the defense of San Juan, Porto Rico; Pearl harbor and Honolulu, Hawaii; San Luis, Apia, Guam, Manila bay and Subig bay, in the Philippines, have been approved by the secretary of war and actual construction should begin thereupon at an early date. "It is believed the time will come when it will be no longer wise to ignore coast defenses. The department is properly in sistent that all its important coaling sta tions should receive proper defense protec tion to keep off attacks from possible hos tile fleets. "The sea cost defenses of the United States are now somewhat more than 50o per cent completed. Twenty-five of the principal harbors of the United States have a sufficient number of heavy gunls and mortars to make a defense against naval attack, and during the past three years considerable progress has been made in the installation of improved rapid fire guns. now the matter of first importance." At present there are provided for the defense of the United States Io5 z2-inch guns, 133 to-inch guns, 96 8-inch guns, 567 rapid fire guns and 376 Iz-inch mor tars. General Gillespie submits a total esti mate of $10,366,100 for the fortifications of the fiscal yeqr ending June 30o, 1905, as follows: Construction of gun and mortar batteries and the installation of range and position finders, $4.575,00ooo; sites for fortifications and sea coast defenses, $2,ooo,ooo; search lights for harbor defense, $soo,ooo.
