I—Huerta has temporarily averted financial chaos by forcing the Catholic party to ad vance him $1,000,000 and by borrow ing $500,000 from Banco NacionaJ, but this will last only a very short time in the republic's war expense. As soon as this money is exhausted Huerta expects to draw on various state treasurers. This probably wi l result in more revolts.

MOVEMENT OF TROOPS TO MEXICO PLANNED Lieutenant Colonel Mathew son Describes Advance Ideas of War College LT. COL. H.G. MATHEWSON Coast Artillery Corps, K. G. C With the possibility of interven tion by the Uni d States in Mexico,! the question irises in the public mind Just what plans Uncle Sam would pursue in assembling; his troops; also the comparative strength of the army of Mexico with that of the United States. Our first serious problem would be the concentration of our forces in camps. This has all been arranged for by the war college, composed of a board of regular army officers. The plans have been completed and have been approved by the general staff, which directs field operations in time of war. PLANS FOR MOBILIZATION The mobilization is such a gigan tic proposition that I will only en deavor to deal with it as lt would affect Californians. It is generally understood that a concentration camp for the militia of the western division and for the regulars of the western division has been selected at a point near Los Angeles, probably Long Beach. Here the troops will be rushed from their various armories and army posts by special trains. Provision for this has been made by the general staff with the railroads. The plans are se cret, but a general idea must neces sarily be furnished the railroad offi cials, so that ample accommodations can be provided for the thousands of soldiers and their equipment. Every national guardsman In Cali fornia is on his mettle. For months the various company commanders have been preparing their men for active field service. The moment that Uncle Sam flashes the message for mobilization every soldier in Califor nia's militia will be ready to entrain California has at war strength: f VMFORXIA'S WAR STRENGTH Men. Three regiments of infantry.... 3,800 One squadron of cavalry 500 One battalion of field artille-y.. 800 One company signal corps.. ... 150 Twelve companies coast artillery.l,2oo Field hospital corps 125 Ambulance company 125 Total 6.500 These soldiers are recruited from every rection of the state and It will be a difficult task for the quarter master's department to assemble them, but this branch of the service has accomplished so many seemingly impossible jobs that it is safe to say there will be no hitch. Once the militia and regulars are assembled in the concentration camp all that would be needed for them to entrain for the Mexican border would be orders from the president. Eftl IPPED SAME AS REGULARS The militia is equipped with the same outfit as the regulars. Their uniforms are identical, they use the same rifles and cannon, the same am munition and are schooled in the same tactics. Each soldier carries a set of entrenchment tools. The railroads will be taxed to their capacity in the handling of the troop ers of California's concentration camp. It is my belief that 120 pas senger, 60 baggage, 25 flat and 60 stock cars will be needed for the mobilization of the troops In Califor nia. As the stay at the camp depends upon conditions to be determined after war is declared it becomes necessary to make ample provisions for the sanitary care of the troops before their arrival to prevent disease and contagion. All regulars are inocu lated with the anti-typhoid serum and most likely the militiamen will be vaccinated with this vaccine when they are ordered into the field. MEDICAL CORPS ALERT Good water and food will keep the camp healthy. The medical corps of the army is fully alive to its responsi bility. We have learned many costly lessons in the health of our soldiers, and when war comes upon us again lt will find us fully prepared. Mexico has a standing army of 29.556 men. On a war footing Mexico's regu lar forces total 70,918 men. What she THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1913 U. S. Army Exceeds Mexico's; Ratio Is s_to 1 A comparison of the army of the United States rvith that of Mexico, according to the latest figures obtainable, is as fol lows : United Statea (atandlng army, peace strength> . 86,000 Mexico (standing army, peace strength) '.'!>. >♦> United Statea (regular army, war footing i .... 150,000 National guard reserves of nation 300,000 Total 350,000 Mexico (war footing;) ■ • • - 70,018 ( No organised reservea.) The militia of the weatern atatea, which constitute the six teenth division of the army, la estimated at war strength at 15,000. could muster In a war with a foreign nation would be hard to determine. This country has a standing army in times of peace of 86,000 men. If war was declared this force could be recruited to 150,000 men. But in addi tion to this we have our powerful re serve force—the national guard of the nation. This would total alone at war strength 200,000 men, thus giving to this country the augmented force of 350,000 men. According to these figures—they are given by the war college—this country would have 280,000 more soldiers than Mexico. But it must be remembered that we could not utilize our entire force. There must be left some sol diers to guard our island possessions, Alaska, the Panama canal and our coast fortifications. This would mate rially decrease our force. In fact, we could only count on about 135,000 men of the regulars and 200,000 of the na tional guard when filled to war condi tions to engage in a war with Mexico. This force would be made up of ail fighting branches of the service—ln fantry, cavalry, field artillery and sig nal corps. SIXTEENTH MII.ITIA IJIVISION The entire Sixteenth division of militia is as follows: First brigade—Three regiments, California. Second brigade—One regiment, Mon tana; one regiment, Idaho; one regi ment, Washington. Third brigade—One regiment, Ore gon; one regiment, Arizona. Auxiliary troops—Cavalry: One troop, Arizona; four .troops, Califor nia; one troop, Washington. Field artillery—Three batteries, California; one battery, Oregon; one battery, Utah. Signal companies—One company. Utah; one company, California; one company, Washington. Field hospitals—One company, Cali fornia; one company, Washington. Ambulance companies—One com pany, Oregon; one company, Califor nia. Totnl peace strength, 7,720; total war strength, 15.000 men. This division would be in command of ii major general of regulars. Ten days'time would betaken from first call to assemble to reaching con centration camp. CHARGE OF INTOXICATION MADE AGAINST OFFICER Patrolman Charles L.
