The military appropriation bill, author ising an appropriation of tl01.000.01M for the malntenaee of the War Department In the fiscal year beginning July 1 next, which was ordered reported to the House Saturday. It makes no increased appro priations for the national defense despite the recommendations of the Secretary of War that the coast defenses should be made more efficient. The amount proposed Is about t3.00O.0O4, leas than the amount the Secretary of War estimated he could use to advantage. However, no reductions were made In the appropriations for national defense de spite the manifest purpose of the commit tee to economise. Tbe committee also Ignored the recom mendation of the Secretary of War tor an Increase In the standing army. Nor did It pay any attention to the urgent recommendation of Gen. Wotherspoon for the creation of a trained reserve. Republican members of the committee made It plain that a fight would be made on the floor of the House to Increase the appropriations tor the army. Hay Opposes Iaqalry. Representative Hay. of Virginia, chair man of the Military Committee, la a moat determined opponent of the Gardner resolution providing for an inquiry into the national defenses.

Editor of the Washington Herald: In or der to correct an erroneous Impression which may have been given by the heading's appearing over your report In the Herald of December 14 of the dis cussion of the work of the Associated Charities, which took place at the mrct lns of the Washington Secular League, permit me to say that the attitude taken by some speakers In severely criticising the Associated Charities should not be regarded as the attitude of the Secular League In the matter. In harmony with its principles and ob jects tbe league conducts an open forum In which any one present Is accorded i the privilege of giving expression, in i proper manner, to any view or opinion he or ahe may hold on the subject un- der discussion. But the by-laws of the league expressly provide tnat It snail I not be considered as indorsing or he- Ar coming responsible for any views uttered In the discussion.' As the body of your report Indicated. the attack on the Associated Charities ' at our meeting last Sunday waa led by j visitors to the meeting, and a defense of that organisation and Its work was made by a leading member of the league. While the league itself was in no wise com mitted one way or the other. I think I may safely say that the Secular League Is not onlv not unfriendly to the work be ing carried on by the Associated Charities and like organisations, but regards it as a most important tocial service which j affords not only temporary relief to the destitute, but, because of the increasing-1 ly scientific and rational attitude and I methods by which it is marked, promises to aid most materially in bringing that i consummation toward which the faith of civilization is ever more and more directed the abolition of destitution and ! poverty. And certainly this consumma tion cannot be less desirable to those who carry on the work of our charitable organizations and who are in immediate touch with the concrete problem of pov erty In its personal and collective aspects than It is to the real of us.

During the year lust ending, tbe Dis trict Naval Battalion made the great eat progress since Its organisation. Be ginning the year with an enrollment of 12s, ninety men were discharged from time to time. Of these ninety a ma jority went to the regular service in the United States navy, a part left the city, and othera quit because their duties would not permit their attendance to drills and work. Tbe close of the year sees tbe battalion with a membership of 174, the highest It has seen. Thursday night the last drill of the year was held, and regular drills will not be resumed until January 7. Fol lowing the drill Thursday night Com mander Joseph Dempf reviewed the work of the year, and praised the officers and men for their splendid efforts to build up the battalion. Commander Dempf said he could not bestow praise enough on the men and officers, and urged them on to greater ef forts in MIS. The battalion will have holiday from now until the night of January T, when regular drills will be resumed. Some of the boys are planning to leave the city to apend their holidays with relatives and friends.
