JUNEAU, ALASKA, TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1916. _ PRICE TEN CENTS Bloodiest Fighting of Eastern Campaign Is Waged GARRISON OUTLINES HIS PLAN WASHINGTON.' D. C., Jan. 11.? Secretary of War Garrison has com pletely outlined his plans to submit to the congressional military com m ttees, the army's part of tho ad min 1st rat ions' national defense pro gram. The secretary spent his entire holiday vacation in seclusion in work ing on the plans and last week finally tabulated them in the way he wants them presented to the committees. The following is the secretary's outllno of what the proposed plan will accomplish: 1?Write a definite military policy founded on the unanimous conclusion of the military experts of tho nation, past and present. 2?Enroll within three years and give some preliminary training to at least 500.000 mobile troops. 3.?Provide within six years for an additional force of 500,000 reserves for the troops with the colors. 4?Furnish the most attractive form of voluntary military service it is pos sible to devise, thereby serving as a final and conclusive test of the possi bility of organlz'ng in peace times an adequate volunteer army system. 5?Furnish a system to which uni versal m'litary service conld be ap plied quickly and with the necessity of extensive reorganization. Mobile Army. 6?Furnish a regular mobile army sufficient to cooperate with the train .'ng of continentals and also to carry on the necessary peace activities. 7?Furnish through cadet compan ies attached to regular regiments an adequate and certain school for regu lar continental and reserve officers. S?Furnish, beginning at once, a system under which an adequate en listed reserve for the regular array would be built up and maintained. 9 Begin at once, to be concluded in four years, the expenditure of $81,000, 000 on extension and improvement of coast defenses, making them far su perior to those which any other na-! tion has ever known. ??* ) 10?Furnish an adequate force to man all coast defenses, now lacking nearly 50 per cent of the necessary personnel. 11?Build up within four years a re serve supply of material to cost $104. 000.000 and estimated upon the con sumption of ammunition shown by the best available reports from the Eu ropean war. Munitions Plants. 12?Inaugurate a system under 1 which commercial munition plants can be fostered by the government in peace times, insuring an adequate and continuous supply of guns and shells 'n times of war. The most vital thing, it is claimed, is to obtain the names of 400.000 men who are obligated to turn to the col < rs at call, and supply them with necessary arms, -equipment,' org&nlza tion and mobU'zatlon Instructions and to give them rudimentary military training. If this were accomplished, experts say. and if officers and non commissioned officers ass'gned. a great stride would have been taken, a short circuit to the formation of a volunteer army In time of need that would save months of delay if it ac complished nothing more. General Scott Testifies General Hugh L Scott, chief of staff of the army, testified yesterday be fore the House committee on military affairs. He thought an army of 2. 000.000 men necessary for the defense of the United States against Invas ion. General Scott favored conscription; If this number could not be secured through Secretary Garrison's plan.

That Governor Strong is un advo cate of preparedness on a conservative scale !s revealed in hirf annual report, made public yesterday. The Governor calls the attention of the Secretary of tho Interior to the provision for a Territorial militia and points out that the time for the orga nization of several companies of the Territorials is opportune. His report in this connection reads as follows: "Section 350, Compiled Laws of Al aska. 1913, inter alia provides that the governor of Alaska "shall bo an-exof Hc'o commander In chief of the mil itia of Alaska, and shall have power to cair out the same when necessary to the execeution of the laws and to preserve the peace, and to causo all able-bodied citizens of tho United | States in the Territory to enroll and j serve as such when the public oxigen- j cy demands: and shall perform gener ally in and over the Territory, as fa - ns tho same may be made or become applicable thereto." As vet Alaska has no militia or otn er military organization. In 1913 the; War Department decided that no use ful organization of the militia in, Al- ( aska could be perfected under the ex isting law, which was regarded as ob solete. and it was therefore recommen ded that no organization of the militia ; |be attempted in advance of appro-, priate legislation by Congress. At the same time the War Department was of the opinion that it was both ; practicable and desirable to maintain a force of militia in Alaska, particu larly In the vicinity of Juneau. The matter seems to have rested there for no effort has been made to remove the obstacle referred to.by the depart ment in the way of organizing the j Territory and to extend 't to the pro- j visions of the act approved January 21. 1903. "to promote the efficiency of i the militia, etc."" I have therefore to recommend that such legislation be j enacted in Congress as will make It I possible to organize and ma'ntain a force of militia in Alaska. The time seems to be opportune for such or ganization. And if this is done a force of militia 1.000 or more In nuffibercan (be enrolled,- whose personnel would comprise men of previous experience in the militia of different states and who are now seasoned Alaskans.
