104 to SO.
Washington. May 3L By direction of tho
President. Secretary Hoot has Issued a gen
eral order decreasing tho strength of our
'permanent military establishment and
charglns the ratio of Its make-up. as pro
vided In the general order Issued last May
to carry out the army reorganization law.
Under the general order of last May tho
total strength of the army was fixed at
7T.2S7 men. The o-der Issued to-day reduces
this figure to CC.497 a reduction of 10 7
In tiie cat airy branch of the service tho
old order specified twelve troops of cighty
fivo men to each regiment: the new order
establishes twelve troops of seventy-five
men each. This will decrease the total
strength of tha fifteen cavalry regiments
from 15.S40 to 11,040.
In tho artillery branch, the coast con
tingent will be kept at Its former strength
of IK companies of 1C9 enlisted men each,
or a total of 13,734. but the fifld artillery
nlll be reduced from thirty batteries of 160
men each to twenty-eight batteries (twenty
fivo light and three mountain) of 120 men
Provision Is made in the new order for two
siege batteries, each Twth a strength of 160
men, which. In addition to light and moun
tain batteries, -will give the artillery corps
a total enlisted strength of 17,712 as against
th 18.SW mn provided In the former order.
The new order reduces the number of men
to an Infantry company from 101 to 80 and
the thirty regiments of twelve companies
each v'l! now give a total infantry force of
I3.SS0. instead of 3S.5H.
The strength of the engineer branch re
mains as formerly, as does also the strength
of the staff departments
It -ft ill be th plan of the War Department
hereafter to divide the army, 'as provided
In the order Issued to-day. Into thirds, hav
ing one-third of the entire establishment in
the Philippines at all times, and the remain
ing two-thirds In the United States and else
where. By this plan an enlisted man, tak
ing six jears as a bash, would serve four
years In the United States proper, or in Ha
waii or in Alaska, to every two years
served in the Philippines.
