have read the summarized views of the
experts, us you call them, printed on the
nrst p.ibc of THE HUN of February 13,
In relation to the shortcomings of the
mllltl.1. I itather from the views
therein set forth that these Rftntlemen
have In mind the militia of olden
days. Evidently they arc not banlns
their expert opinion on the uso of the
mllltla or National Utiard proponed to
Congress by the National Guard of the
United States through the executive
committee of the National Guard Asso
ciation. If so, then their conclusions
nro wror.jf.
No guardsman of Ion years of ex
perletrcn will dehato the nuentton of past
Inefficiency and defects In certain Htates
of the Union. Tho Nntlonal Guard Is
fully nllvo to past failures, but, mark
you, thi National (luard of the United
Htates has unceasingly naked t'ontrress
for the past twelve years to do those
things which In an enlarged ttense It Is
now asking and which the committees.
of Congress now nte constrained to do
under the force of public opinion. It l
acknowledged, f am Informed, that the
military committees of Congress frankly
admit that tho only sensible plan of
fered to Congress for the creation of a
cltlren army has come from the National
Ouard. Let It be borne In mind that
the very sensible plan now offered to
Congress Is only the perfection of plans
which the officers of the Ouard hae
been urging for the past decade.
A good many wxnlled experta are
trying to rntifuse the situation, It !
therefore not surprising that when
within the past ten days thern was pre
