Suggestion Is Contained In Gen. Wea
ver's Report Showing that Coast De
fences Are Inadequately Manned.
Washington, D. C Dec 8. Of the
total number of forces required to adequately-
man the coast defences, the
corps is short 477 officers and 11,280
enlisted men, accqr&ing to the annual
report of Gen. E. M. Weaver, chief of
coast artillery, to the war department
"W . ..h all of the great gun batteries
planned for the United States sea coast
defences by the Endieott board 27 years
ago nearing completion, the army faces
a serious problem in the lack of artil
lerymen to man the fortifications.
Gen. Weaver reported that his corps
"had less than one-fourth of one re
lief" available for permanent duty in
the batteries and the organized militia
was not prepared to furnish its re
quired quota of reserves.
All of the fortifications planned by
the Endieott board have been completed,
the report said, except the proposed
batteries at Cape Henry to defend
Chesapeake bay and San Pedro, Calif
the port of Los Angeles, which has been
added to the ports to be defended.
Appropriations already have been
made for these- projects.
He pointed out that heavy drafts
Tnust be made upon the corps to man
the ove-sea defences and. after they
lave been provided for, there will re
main by 319 officers and 7267 regular
coast artillery troops for the service of
tre gun batteries of the continental
TTii'ed States.
The lat report shows. Gen. Weaver
fc.lded, that the militia coast artillery
b.- lab'e is composed of only 127 com
;a es 468 officers and 7243 enlisted
it en, and he recommended, therefore,
t'jit the states be urged to provide
tliir due proportion of coast artillery
troops and that congress be asked to
provide the necessary number of troops
to man the defences.
Secretary Daniels Would Have It Bnilt
by Private Corporation on Basis
at Guaranteed Tannage.
Washington, D. C. Dec 8. A great
dr dock on the Pacific coast capable
of handling the dreadnaughts of the
United States navy is proposed by sec
retary Daniels of the navy department.
He claims the absolute necessity for
such a dry dock to accomodate the
great- ships of the Atlantic fleet when
they pass through the Panama canal.
He 'proposes to contract with a private
corporation which already owns docks
in San Francisco harbor, to construct
the dock on a basis of guaranteed
compensation in so many thousands of
tons of naval docking per annum. He
has sought this authority from con
gress. Th etllapse of the great Pearl Har
bor deck in Hawaii which was to be
the mainstay of the navy on the west
coast and inacessihility of the Mare
Island navy yard basins until a great
dal of dredging has been done, has

Drs. Young and Hinion Will Lo
cate in Our City
Doctors Oscar A. Young and G. Allison Hinton, twa of the most
widely known specialists of tbe age, have promised the people of El Paso
that they -tfill permanently loeate in our city. Not only have they agreed
to locate, hut they are here, and with the aWe Assistance of their many
friends, have seeured offices in the Coles huiWiag, occupying nearly the
whole second floor above the Union clothing store, on the corner Oregon
and San Antonio streets. They have six large roams, and they are
equipped with all the latest instrument and devices for the treatment of
their specialties.
Newspapers throughout the United States have printed page after
page telling of the wonderful-success of these great men and the almost
phenomenal resalts of their treatments. Dr. Young makes a specialty of
chronic diseases alone, his success in treating Gall Stone trouble, chronic
trouble of the Stomach and Liver, diseases of the Kidneys and Bladder
and chronic Nervous conditions. Dr. Young has a special treatment for
lung affections and diseases of the air passages in fact, his treatment
for consumption is a marvelous one, patients gaining a pound a day for
months. They can feel the effect of this wonderful treatment within a
few days after starting its use. This treatment for consumption is ap
plied by the patient sitting in a cabinet, known as an inhalitorium, where
the air is impregnated with the medication that is necessary to destroy
the gorms of tuberculosis. This air is breathed down deep into the lungs,
where the medicine becomes in direct contact with the diseased tissue,
destroying the germ and restoring the lungs to a healthy condition. It is
astonishing and gratifying to see the color return to the faee, the cough
stop and the patient become well and strong.
Dr. Hinton nee'ds no introduction. Patients go thousands of miles to
see him. He has for many years been one of the leading physicians of
Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he was secretary of the Eclectic state medi
cal board, and has been prominent in all medical branches. Dr. Hinton is
known in many states as the master of all diseases pertaining to the
blood, such as contracted blood poison, Rheumatism, Epilepsy and Cancer.
Dr. Hinton has developed a treatment for Epilepsy that is so effective that
the patient never has another attack after taking the first dose of this
wonderful remedy. His treatment for cancer removes the cancerous con
dition without an operation and without detaining the patient from his
business in fact, neither' Dr. Hinton or Young resort to the barbarous
use of the knife in any condition. Years of experience have taught them
that man was not created to be mutilated by the surgeon's knife, although
both of these wonderful men in years past have borne reputations as be
ing great surgeons.
Persons affected with any form of chronie 'trouble will do well to
consult these great speoiahits without delay, for they have promised the
peeple of El Paw that tor a limited time no charge will be made for con
sultation or examination. Office hours 9 a. m. to p. m. Location, second
floor. Coles building, corner Oregon and San Antonio streets, over Union
clothing store.
