GENERAL KENNEY'S SUGGESTION,
Militia to.be Better Instrueted—Endorses! by a Military Journal. By Letter to Evening Juchnai,. Dovkk, Dee. 29.—On December 10 General R. R. Kenney, issued the follow ing circular letter, addressed to everv adjutant-general in the United States; "Dear Sir: The custom of detailing regular army officers for duty at the sev eral state colleges has obtained for some time past, and, without doubt with some good results. Why should not the same system of details to the National Guard of the several states lie inaugura ted and iierfected. It is ad nitted on all bands that, in case of war, the govern ment would have to look to the several states, and more especially to the N» tioual Guard, for its army." What, there fore, could be of more advantage to (he government than to have ready to muster into actual service a force that has been instructed aud drilled in strict accord ajjee with the tactics and customs of the l nited States Army. "For this purpose what could or would be more effective than for the War De partment annually to detail au officer of the regular army, not less in rank than captain, to each of the states for duty assistant adjutant général'.' The benefit and advantage to the National Guard service, from such an officer, would be iavaluable, and at the same time the uni formity of drill and custom with the reg nlar service would make the National Guard troops the equals of regulars in almost all desirable qualifications. Even if legislation for the purpose should be necessary, if the National Guard author ities of the several states were united, no difficulty would, I opine, arise in regard to securing the same, fi Should these ideas meet ■ ap pqpvai, I would bo glad to have a letter from you endorsing t he same ; and your co-operation in bringing about this, as to desirable result, is me appears, very Mmes! ly solicited." This week the Army and Navy Journal copied the letter aud says editorially : "Thia is an excellent movement, and we shall watch it with interest, tho re «ult of General Kenney's very sensible action. " Coming from the officiai military jour nal of the United (States, this ia a strong endorsement. ATHLETIC EXHIBITION. The Warren Club Gives Its Second IMeas ». / ln« Entertainment.
