Col. Britton nays, however, that he be lieves this step will bo unueeoNaary. as he Is confident thst an agreement >lll he reached by the special committee that was appointed to day. (n a general way It Is safe to say that the convention will Indorse n bill provid ing for the repeal of the preaenl militia la tvs. These were adopted tn 17H2 and are entirely obsolete, every President, from Washington down, having recom mended their repeal. The new law will be drawn an simply Of possible, so that It can be smemled In the light ot experience to come. It will lie provided that. In times of peace, tin. authority over the National Gunn) ahull rpraaln In the Htatea. an stipulated hy the Constitution, and In time of wnr this authority will be transferred to tbe Fed eral government. The bill will state how the National Guard (hall lie utilised hy the President la Its fnll function aa niKltla troops. A uniform system of staff work and office duties for all organisations will be re quired, Provision will also lie made for supervision by the Wnr Department over the place of drill of the National Guard of the various States, aud the govern ment will agree to assume charge of the enualslsnce. transportation nnd pay of the troop* during thr usual summer prae lice work. 001. Britton thinks that the plan for mobilisation of National Guard troops In national camps will not lie adopted be cause of Impracticability. The expense of such mobilisations would be tisi great, lint he thinks, Instead of this, there will be State camps, where all tbe troops of the State will gather. It Is expected that. If the above onbeme Is adopted, Congress will Inerease the usual appro prlatlon for the use of the in llll ln and provide that It msy he expended for purposes of Instruction.
