MEASURES THAT HE ADVOCATES
Would Have the Laws So Framed
That the Militia Could Be Or
ganizad on a National Basis for
the Protection of the Country
from Invasion or Any Sudden
Emergency That Mifiht Arise.
The discussion now tUUug the press
of the country upon the itvui lability of
tho NatlniMl Ruartl organizations of
tlio several states for national military
operations, oilensive and defensive,
prompts nie to reproduce some aiisrgos
tionson this subject which 1 nmile In
several Articles published in sundry
military magazines several years niro.
Those articles were written in the hope
of promoting sonic concessional lei;is
latiou which would make our several
National guards available for piu po-es
of di Tense or otlbuse, as they might be
needed In cases of emergency.
It was at a time when General Sher
man, the eommauder-iu-clucf of the
United States army, had recently in
spected the National guard of Peun
sylvauia and had publicly stated how
secure he felt with such a well organ
ized, disciplined and drilled body of
troops, available for all purposes at a
moment's call. I pointed out the fact
that, although as troops they were all
his glowing eulogy claimed, neverthe
less as a matter of law they weie not
available for any purpose outside of
the state ol I cunsylvaiiia.
NYbat Is tiueof our National guard
lu this respect I presume is true of the
National guards or organized militia of
all the states, for all are orgauizeu un
der much the same laws.
LAW OX THE SUBJECT.
The National guard of Pennsylvania
Isor&mtiimxl under the act of assembly
a'.-oroved April 18. 1SSD. Section 1 of
this act provides "that the active mil
itia of this commonwealth shall here
after be styled the National Guard of
1'eunsylvauia, and shall ta sutyevi tu
all times to the orders of their offi
cers." This clearly recognizes a distinction
between . the "active" or organized
militia, who have voluntarily enlisted
fur a certain definite period under this
act., and the general mass of citizens
able-bodied men between the aces of IS
,.nd 4o who under the constitution
are liable to military duty under the
general term militia.
The obligation to military service of
these two classes of militia rests upou
totallv ditlerent foundations. The ob
ligation of the former is wholly under
and hv virtue ot his contract ot enlist
nieiit, which has beeu voluntarily en
tered into by him uuder the provisions
of said law and for a delinite term.
The obligation of the latter ari-es out
ot his duties as a citizen uuder the or
ganic law of the laud, to come to the
defense of the country whenever cir
cunislauces may require his services.
OULlciAl'lON OK THE CITIZEN.
The obligation of the latter mani
festly extends to any service that emer
gency may require in any part of this
country. It was under this obligation
that our armies were filled up by draft
ing during tliu latter part of the war of
the rebellion. It is equally clear as
matter of law that the obligation of the
former the National guard if limited
by his contract of enlistment and the
laws under which the guard is organ
im, and which the first section of the
act, above quoted say, the guardsman
shall he at all times "subject to the
order of his officers." The power of
the officers is defined and limited in
Section 05 provides that "military
duty shall require the attendance of
commissioned officers, non f?ommis
ioiied officers, musicians and privates
on all occasions of drills, parades, and
encampments, and a time service
ordered by" his superior officers,
etc. Section 67 provides when guard
may Ik; ordered out for active service,
mid if is the only authority for such
Be r vice.
ft reads as follows: "When an In
vasion of or insurrection in, the state is
made or thrcatened;or a tumult, riot or
mob shall exist, the commander in
chief sliall.call upon th National guard,
and at his discretion uiiou the unrolled
militia (the second-class above-men
tioned) to repel or suppress the
Now in view of above facts, the oft
related statement that the National
guard is available at a moment's no
liee for service wherever needed in the
1 "tilled States, is clearly an error that
might under a sudden emergency prove
very disoMtrous. I am now speaking
from a military standpoint, which re
gards such troops available only as arc
absolutely subject to military orders
NO MOKE PATRIOTIC MEN.
There Is no more patriotic body of
men in tho world than are our own
suburb National guard, and most un
doubtedly every man would promptly
say yes to any emergency rail by the
general government. Put this proba
bility does not fulfill tho military con
ditions j availlbility.
Such an emergency as would occur
In case of a sudden invasion from our
long and unprotected northern frontier,
as was thought possible only a few
years figo during tho Behring sea im
broglio (when the secretary of war tele
graphed the adjutant general of Penn
sylvania asking how quickly he could
put the guard enroute for Uuffalo or
Cleveland) would Involve a service of
several months' duration at least, with
all the probabilities of actual war with
n powerful foreign nation.
It is clear such a service Is not con
templated by the National guurd or
ganization, and it is exceedingly un
wise to remain in a position wtiere,
owing to emergency conditions, such a
service might nave" to lie asked from
It. The guards' special work Is to take
care of our own atuto, more cannot and
ought not to he asked of it, until it
shall be if ever organized upon a na
tional basis. The old maxim, "iu
time of peace prepare for war," is us
applicable today as ever. The possible
need of a large army for defensive pur
poses ought to be recognized at onco.
THE CANADIAN MILITIA.
Themiiitla force of our Canadian
neighbors is organized on a different
basis froni our guard. It, is ati auxil
iary of.their'regular army and can be
utilized at a moment's notice. This
w as exemplified gome years ago during
the Manitoba rebellion where it did
prompt and effective service
It is the pride of the United States
that we are not a military natiou in
the sense of maintaining a large stand
ing army. But that pride would be
found a most expensive luxury in case
we should And ourselves suduouly in
volved in a war with our northern
They could put 100,000 men well
organized and equipped across our
frontier in forty-eight hours, lnuotu
they would probably occupy every iru
nortant Htratei-ic ooint. including all
our large cities from Oswego to Duluth
or Portland within less time mini
forty-eight hours; the advantage of
which cannot bo over-estimntu1. It is
highly probable such nn event will
never occur. Nevertheless experience
proves that It Is "the unexpected" that
happens. Now the point of my article
is this question, how can we provide a
national militia force which shall be
available for emergencies, offensive and
defensive, wherever required through
out the whole United States? For
purposes of defense against mob and
other disturbances within the state,
i.e., arising out of the population
such as labor disturbances and the
like, the present National guard organ
ization ought to be amply sufficient.
If not It can bo supplemented by the
regular army, and thus be made quite
I'KOTElTlON OF I'UONTll'KS.
To be able to meet and repel inva
sion by forcignifoes, along our vast'land
frontiers, we need to be able to mobilize
at once a largo and thoroughly organ
ized and drilled body of troops from
all the states, if necessary, at one or
more points; to meet invasion by in
vasion mid carry tho wur off' our ow n
soil, into the enemy's countiy. This
would necessitate campaigns of from
three to si.vinonths' duration at least.
This time being secured by such a
force at hand, there would be time to
orgauize an army in t lie ordinary way
which would be ready to lake their
place in due time.
Such a force might be obtained, it
seems to me, quite feasibly, in the fol
lowing manner: Let congress pass a
general law for the organization and
equipment of tho active militia of the
several states, to bo known as the
"National tluard," alloting to the
several states their proportion of this
body according to population, het
the eutire force be say 'M,iW men, di
vided into proper proportions of artil
lery, cavalry, infantry, etc. The entire
cos't of organizing, equipping and main
taining this guard to be borne by the
United States. The enlistment and
instruction of the guard to be the work
of the states under their own officers,
as heretofore, conforming, however, to
the system of rule and discipline of the
United States army. A certain num
ber of officers of the regular army to be
detached to the several states as in
structors. Tho beut litsof this act of congress to
be available to the stales, upon the
enactment by them of laws accepting
Us provisions and providing that said
troops shall be subject to the call of the
president of the United State till times
through the governors of the states, for
the purpose of repelling iuvasious, for
a period not to exceed six months at
any one time.
PAID HIGH EH WAGES.
These should be paid a little higher
wasres when so called out than the
regular army so that the service shall
not be undesirable. They should have
certain privileges granted in consider
ation ot certain terms of enlistment,
e. g., exemption from jury duty, from
all military taxation, and from liahll
it v to draft. They should have uni
forms which should ha handsome and
uniiiueaud distinctively their own as
a National guard, and alike through
all the states, except that certain pie
scriljcd badges should indicate the
It should not be like the uniform of
the regular army, but the uniform of
the citizen soldier, such as every young
man of patriotism and honor should lc
ambitious to wear at least for a term of
one enlistment. This guard should
take the place of the present National
uuard or active militia of the several
states, and could be made to do so by
reorganizing under the new laws to be
enacted as above suggested.
In such event the men enlisting
would do so under a new contract of
enlistment made to conform to the
new status, involving a possible nation
al service as well as the ordinary state
services. I believe such a scheme is
entirely practicable, and would give us
a suprrb army of sufficient strength
for emergency needs.
WOULD UK AN EDUCATOR.
It would, moreover, be the education
al foundation of an army of almost
unlimited size should a state of actual
war require it. It would give us the
power and security of a standing army,
without its burden, and this would be
the proverbial ounce of prevention
which would make a war highly im
probable if not impossible. The states
would be the gainers in every respect.
They would have a better organized
militia force, under their control as
heretofore, for all purposes of internal
protection, without t he general govern
ment for such support, would receive
its ample ipiid pro quo in the security
and protection of a magnificent army
at a nominal coat.
