Testing the Mllltla.
Tbe summer a.uiy maneuvers put
the efficiency of tbe mllltla of the
states to test and that feature alone
Justifies tbe excuse Involved In these
maneuvers. Although subjected to
government regulation and systematic-
ally Inspected by regular army offi-
cers, the mllltla of the states is often
declared to be below tbe standard of
efficiency desired even In an emergen-
cy force. Tbe Idea upon wblcb tbe
government proceeds in looking after
tbe mllltla Is not for a large establish
tnent. but for a blgbly efficient one so
far as It goes.
It Is generally conceded that tbe
mllltla Is not maintained for war pur-
poses. uot even to suppress revolution,
but for local emergencies, as when
tbe peace of a city or district Is dis-
turbed. Emergencies of tbe kind
when tbey come are grave, and If tbe
troops available consist only of a
regiment of lufantry or a battery of
artillery or a squadron of cavalry It
won't do to have any miss fire In the
proceedings. When tbe army falls
down tbe disorderly element Is In
glee. A mere disturbance becomes a
grave riot. Under federal officers tbe
voung men of the in II It la soon learn
that soldiering Is not Junketing nor
the national guard a sort of social
club. This lesson Is mucb needed.
Persons who think that gun play
wltb cartridges made to do business
Is funny even though neighbor* are
maimed or killed tn the sport ought ti

amusement of those who don't agree
