Makes Brief Review of Reports
from Other Officers-Lauds
Bravery and Discipline
tions of Indians.
Washington. Nov. 6.—The annual re-
port of Lieut. Gen. Miles commanding
tho army, is a brief review of the re-
ports that have been submitted to him
by other oficers. He endorses tue rec-
ommendation of General Brooke for a
readjustment of the geographical limits
of the diferent departments with a
view of equalizing conditions. General
Miles calls attention to the necessity of
quarters for troops saying that while
hundreds of thousands of dollars are
being spent for quarters for cavalry,
very little is being used to offord shel-
ter for artillery, which is exposed to
severe climates along the coast.
• These troops", says General Miles,
"are required to be located adjacent to
the fortifications, notwithstanding the
exposed position of many of them ami
I see no reason why buildings should
not be properly construced in time to
be occupied, when it is known for
years exactly where and when they will
be required ! also call attention to the
incomplete conditions of the fortifica-
tions. especially on the Pacific coast,
where millions have been expended in
euKinering and ordinance work, and
yet the commands have not l#en prop-
erly supplied with ammunition, electri-
cal plants and other appliances essen-
tial to the effective use of these forti-
fications In actual warfare."
"During the past year there have
been no serious engagements, except
that of the troops under General Frank
TV Baldwin in Mindanao. P. I., with the
Moros. For the number of men engaged
this was a very spirited and desperate
engagement. Our forces were com-
manded by one of the most experienc-
edand efficient ofimers of the army
whose record has always been of the
highest order"," and his achievements,
together with that of the troops in this
engagement made another chapter of
fortitude, tenacity and heroic sacrifice
in the history of American arms.
"The condition of the Indians is quite
satisfactory and there has been no dis-
turbance of importance among them
during the last twelve months. This is
accounted for principally by three rea-
"First, just and humane treatment of
the Indians and the judicious manage-
ment of their affairs; second, their
gradual transition from a condition of
barbarism to that of a semi-civilized
people; and third, tue close proximity
of.the military garrisous which are al-
ways available in case of threatened
'The experience during the great
civil war, and years of campaigning
along our western frontier afforded the
best Bchoods of practice for our army
in former years. The attention given to
calisthenics and gymnastics and miii-
tary exercises made our small army a
corps of athletes while the elementary
schools established for enlisted men.
the post libraries, the post lyceums
and officers' schools, the various
schools of instruction and practice for

my produced an army of such excel-
lence taht I was able In my annual re-
port in 1806 to state:
" 'The personnel of the army was
never In better condition.'
"This was proven to be true by the
fortitude, skill and heroism displayed
In every serious campaign on every
field of mortal combat wherever the
army has been engaged in any part of
the world during the last four years.
During that time many changes have
©ecurred and the army has been very
largely increased. The long an., var-
ied service of the senior ifleers, their
experience n organizing, disciuline. in-
structing and leading their commands
as well as the excellent discipline, in-
dtructlon and exemplary conduct of the
soldiers of the army of '98 have ben
