And 1 eShccroly hopo It will not. Tho cx cecdlnir amount of consideration It has received from the people of tho nation has boon wholly nonpartisan; n ml tho congress set Us nonpartisan senl upon It when tho mnnetnry com mission was nppolniwi. in commend ing the question to tho fnvorabln con sldrrailon of congress, I speak for, and In tho spirit of, tho great num ber of my fellow citizens who without any thought of parly or partisanship feel with ranmrknblo eorncMncsn that this reform Is necessary to tho Inter ests' of nil tho pcoptc. Tim War IHiutrttiKMit, There Is now beforo congress a Mil, tho , purporc. of which Is to Increase tho clllclency nnd decrease tho ex pense of the nrmy. It contains four principal features: First, a consulta tion or the guncrnl staff with the ad jutant general's and the Inspector gon oral's, departments; second, a consol idation of tho quartermaster's de partment with tho rubslstcncu nmt the pay departments; third, tho creation of an army eorvlco corps; and fourth, nn cxtonslon or tho enlistment period from threw to Jlvo years. with tho establishment of an nrmy nnd to reduce thO?numbcr of lino offi cers detached from their commands, Congress nt'thn lltnl Session Increased tlio total number of officer), by 800 but this Is not enough, l'romntlon In tho lino or the nrmy Is too slow, om cers do not attain command rank tit an ngo early enough properly to exorcise It. It would bo a mistake further to retnrd this ul ready stow promotion by throwing back Into tho lino or tho nrmy a numbor of high-ranking oltl cers to be absorbed as I provldrd In tho proposed plan of consolidation, Another feature of the blil which I betlovo to bo a mistake Is tho pro posed Inert aso In tho term of enlist ment from threo to five years. I be llevo It would bo better to anllst men for six years, release them nt tho end of threo years from active service, uiiu put them In reserve for tho re maining thro years. Iteenllitnicnts should bo largely confined to tho non commissioned oftlcers and other en listed men In tho sklllod grades. This plan, by tho payment of u compar atively small compensation during thu threo yours of reserve, would keep n largo hotly of men at tho call or the government, trnlned nnd ready for service and nblo to meet any exigency.

Hlnco that tlmo tho government has con tinued, under the advlco of tho attor ney general that In the absence or ac. Hon by congress, thero Is necessarily an Implied authority on tho part of tho executive to maintain a govern ment In a territory In which ho has to sea that tho laws nro executed. Tho fact that wo hnvo been ablo thus to got along during tho Important days or construction wllhnut legislation i x pressly formulating tho government, of tho cone, or delegating tho crentlon of It to tho president, is not a reason for supposing that wo may contlnun tho iwimc kind or a government after tho construction Is ilnlshod. Tho Im plied authority ot tho president to maintain it civil government In thu xonn mny bo derived rrom tho man datory direction given him In tho original Hpooner act, by whlcji ho was cummandod to build tho canal; hut certainty, now Hint tho canal Is nbout to ho completed and to be put under a permanent management, thero ought to bo speclllo statutory authority for Its regulation nnd control nnd for tho government of tho xono, which wo hold for tho chief nnd main purposo of operating tho canal.
