WORN BY INDIAN FIGHTERS Quartermaster General Becommends Preservation of Stock on Hand. IMPROVING TYPE OF HORSES Efforts to Secure Better Mounts for Army?Total Expenditures for Supplies. More than 4,000 buffalo overcoats which the government has preserved for the last twenty years, the coats having been worn by the troops during the Indian campaigns in the north wcs. prior to 1801, are to be used by the soldiers in Alaska. Last year nearly 3<H) of the garments were sold at an average price of $34, but Quartermaster Gener.il Ale- j shire of the army in his? annual report, just submitted to the Secretary of War, recommends that no more be sold, be cause of the proposed use in Alaska. The coats were bought when buffalo were plentiful in the west. Gen. Aleshire says that the continued efforts of the officers at the remount sta tions to interest the breeders of the country in improving the type of hors1? for the mounted service is beginning to show in the better quality of some of the young horses offered. The interest shown in the proposition of the Depart ment of Agriculture to furnish imroved stud service under an agreement of sale to the government, he adds, has been par ticularly marked. Average Cost, $144. The report shows that the average cost of mounts for the army during the past fiscal year was $144, ranging from $123 for polo ponies to $30f> for draft horses. The prices paid were higher than the previous year for cavalry and artillery horses, draft horses and draft pack mules; less for riding mules and for young horses for remounts. The total expenditures of the quarter master's department for all purposes dur ing the last fiscal year were *t,540,000 less than for 1911, and $10,043,000 less than for 1910. The total appropriations for the past fiscal year amounted to $30,298,823. Saving Effected. Gen. Aleshire estimates an annual sav ing of about $00,000 as a result of the change in the methods of issuing blan kets to enlisted men. Instead of being charged to the men on their clothing ac count, the blankets now become the prop erty of the government, and are issued to j the men on memorandum receipt, being turned in when they leave the service. As about 25,000 men leave the service annu ally. their blankets being worth about $87,500, it is figured that when the cost of cleaning and renovating, depreciation and unavoidable losses are deducted, the government still will be $60,000 to the good. In the same way. Gen. Aleshire says, there will be considerable savings on over coat accounts. November Term of Court Opens and Grand and Petit Juries Are Selected.
