General Aater In Ms m-.ecneiu say: "I ra led to make tb following state ments on aKCOont of many criticism which h) .- been made by the public pre. eopeSaUy on account of a recent article In trie London Time containing feuerttooa which hav no foundation la truth. "At the cOTimencemeot of the war ritfi Spain' the regular army constated of only S.000 men. with th minimum number- of officer prescrabed by law. The 'tuatf)n may be partially appreciated when It b remembered that within 80 day frn rle deiWatlon of war the ' airength a.' the army was Increased to K5.00. and everytbui for th equipment of thai force had to be manufacture!, transported and distributed for use. "From the statement referred to. tn public might be le'.d t believe that the vota-'iteer arny was officered by men se lected uhrjb. polttloalt influence with the eeorertary by special favor and wlth oU any reyard to fitness for the dutle tliey were to pert oral. "As to wjll knjorwn, the volunteer force, with the exception of three regiments of entrtnee.Y, three regiment of cava'.ry and 10 r.gtmMKa of Imm'.in Infantry, was nrade up of regiments from the various itivces, the offlra of which were all apH(ntd excluei-ely by the governors ot the respeattve state from which th regiments caae. "The ptvaMent had no vofce nor control In th? matter. Volunteer officers were ap pointed by the president tl the number all told of 1032. Of Shis 441 were taken from the regular arvny and 391 from civil itfe. For little over :000 appointment nade by the presldeint the number of apullti:lo-w waa .over 35.000. Of th num ber ajppalnted tthere were, for Instance, 26 major jenerals, at whloh U were taken frotn 'tlhe regular army and seven from civil life. Off these seven ail twit one were graduates of West Plnt military academy and all had distinguished them sulvea In command during tb civil war. ; "Of brly Miter genrj.te there were 109 appointed. 66 from the regular army and 3 from civil We. Those from civil life had all aeon service during the civil war or on our western frontier. It has been stated, and repeated many times, that the secretary of war made these appoint ments, when fhe truth to that very few were made under hla recommendation. I would be only too glad to have had the honor to tuv,"e made these appointment.
