Washington, May 25. Cavalry offi cers are considerably worried over the poor outlook for promotions in that branch of the service for some time to come. At present there seems to be no prospect for ending the stagna tion which has lasted for some time. Promotions in the cavalry were more rapid before the war with Spain than those in any other branch of the serv ice. Last year in the cavalry, three lieutenant-colonels were made colon els, and in the infantry six lieutenant colonels received their promotions. In the other grades the difference is still greater. For instance, in the cavalry, four majors were made lieutenant colonels and in the infantry eight majors were advanced; five cavalry captains were promoted, and twelve Infantry captains were made majors: twelve cavalry lieutenants were made captains, while in the infantry twenty- six first lieutenants were advanced to rank.
