Secretary Root of the war department, in his annual report dwells especially on the imperfect and unsatisfactory condi- tion of the militia law, enacted in 1792, and not practically obsolete, and calls on congress for general reforms.

No- vember 30, 1900, the regular army in- cluded 2,535 officers and 68,221 enlisted men, and 1,548 officers and 3L079 enlist- ed volunteers. May 8 last the enlisted strength of the army was reduced to 15,- 8~0 calvary. 18,862 artillery, 18,520 infan- try and 4,065 other men, a total of 77,- 287 men and 3,253 officers. Of these 33,- 874: are iu the United States, 43,239 in the Philippines and 4,91~: in Cuba.
