"The California and Colorado troop
are preparing to take transport. The
Sherman and Warren will leave shortly.
The department dim op the situation
a outlined by General Otia in tlie fol
lowing statement :
To meet the requirement of the re
turning volunteers, the qnartermaxter's
department reports there are now in Ma
nila the transports Sherman, Warren
and Grant, w ith a capacity for ll9 of
ficers and 4!'.'4 enlisted men. There
are now on the sea en route to Manila,
the Zeal an ilia (due July 20,) Sheridan
(due July 21), Valencia (due July 26),
and Pennsylvania (due July 2.)), with
capacity (or 101 officers and 4200 enlixted
men. There are now in San Francisco
the transports City of l'ara, which will
sail July 22, and the Tartar, to sail July
"0, with a capacity for 65 oilicers and
?:00 enlisted men. There are now en
route to San Francisco, the following
transort8, with capacity for 209 officer
and 4t'J4 enlisted men : Ohio, Newport,
Hancock, Senator, Morgan City, Indiana
and ltelief, (hospital). The department
confidently believes the transportation
has been so well arranged by the quar
termaster's department that the last of
the volunteers will leave Manila not'
Inter than September 9. and it is ex
pected they will all be away by the 1st.
The recruits required for the regular
regiments In the Philippines are esti
mated at 0338 men. Tlie number of re
cruits now at sea are 1057; the number
of recruits now at San Francisco are
:i:'S4j a total of 4791, leaving 1547 yet to
be provided for.
The large number of vacancies exist
ing in the Fourteenth, Eighteenth and
Twenty-third Infantry is due to the
fact that these regiments went with
General Merritt's original expedition to
the Philippines, and were not filled to
the maximum; also that the men In
these regiments who enlisted for the
war are just now being discharged; the
men enlisting for the war in the other
regiments were discharged before the
regiments left this country, and the va
cancies are due to the Increase of the
companies from 100 to 1'28 men.
At the rate of enlistments for tlie last
few weeks, the entire number will be en
listed by the closo of the present week,
The war department has nearly per
fected the details of a project for the en
listment of volunteers under the terms
ot the act of the last congress. There
elective which he requires.
The force that will he at Otia' disposal
when the new troop now In this coun
try reach him at the beginning- of the fall
campaign may be summarized as fol
lows: Keventeen regiment of regular Infan
try ,25.840 men ; three new volunteers
Iments, 4131; four batteries Third artil
lery, 4K'J; (en batteries of Hixth 1230; an
engineer battalion, 200; signal corp,150;
total, 33,271 men.
The fact that General Otis ha reduced
to two regiments the number to be or
ganized at Manila, arid has asked for
2000 men to fill them' up, shows that he
has had much difficulty to obtain re en
listment ot volunteers. It is estimated
that he has obtained only 800 men not
enough to form one regiment.
Under the instructions to recriitinj of
ficers, enlistments of three-year recruit,
intended for regular regiments, and en
listments of volunteers for two years will
be made. In the case of the volunteers,
there will be no restrictions as t citizen
ship or educational qualifications. Re
cruiting officers have previously been
compelled to reject men who were not
citizens of the United States or are un
educated, and have gone so far as to
throw out men who were flatfooted.
While it is intended to obtain as h'gh
aclassofmeo for the volunteer service
as possible, it is pointed oat that the
law will allow the enlistment of recruits
showing sufficient Intelligence to per
form duty as American soldiers.

The proposed organhutiou of nine vol
unteer regiments will place a number ol
Important military commi-sion at the
disposal of the president. Although
there will be three new brigades, Adjutant-General
Oorbin says it is not likely
that more than one additional brigadier
general will be needed, the other two be
ing provided for by officers of Aat grade
j now in the army, whose terms of enlist
ment are about to expire. General
Grant, who is now in the Philippines, is
in this category, and he propably will be
one of the two new brigadier-generals.
Another officer now in the Philippines is
also available for reappointment to the
Probably the most important point in
connection with the proposed volunteer
organization is the president's declared
intention to appoint none but officers of
the regular army to the sommand of the
nine new regiments. Nearly 50 regular
army olliceis had reiri mental commands
during the recent war iu the volunteer
establishment, and nine colonels to be
assigned to the new regiments will be
selected from among that number. The
election will be based entirely upon the
records of the officers during the late
war, and the nine officers whose practi
cal work in the field was most efficient
will receive the appointments.
It is not unlikely, however, that some
of the efficient volunteer officers may be
selected for subordinate commands in
the different regiments, inasmuch as the
decision to appoint only regular army of
ficers does not apply to positions below
the grade of colonel.
