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.
