ARMY AND VOLUNTEERS. VOLUNTEER CYCLISTS:) uherto a- sp^jial capitation grant of £ 2 per a.nnum ha, been paid for each efficient cyclist of a cyclist company of a Volunteer corps; but fcr the oi.umg ye-kr this allowance is to be reduced by one la.if. If the War Office were dealing with the cycli,, -)n)p,,tny of a Milit"a regimtnt such a. proceeding, mId be more or less intelligible, as the bicycles would only be used in the service of the Goverc.tit for a very limited period in eac h -year; but the Volun- teers the matter is quite a different one, as the bicycles are in use fcr nearly tie whole year- ccrtainly for more than eight mon-hs ef it. This does not mean every day of the ci.ht months or more referred to, but in many eav; it means for once or twice a week during the whole of that penod. and to sup?t tht £ 1 ? year is sufficient to keep d. b .yele that, is in (;ont;mt u??, ),I good ''?p?.ir is too &bsu)d to need demonstration There have always been, and in spite of all we have been taught, and in spite of all special cooimissioi: > that have gat or ever will sir, there always will r. two opposing forces, ViI. the Treasury shrieking for economy and the War Office crying weakly for efficiency Whea we are face to face with an actual emergency the Treasury gives way all along the line, and spends wasteiuily far m-.e-e than it has saved by its petty economies f r a decade past; but as soon as the crisis s over it begins to shriek "economy" again, and the Secretary of State for Wai of the day, gives way, and the Army and all its parts relapse into the previous state of unpieparedness and inefficiency. In spite of all the recent outcry against such a 4titte of things we are at the present moment entering on one of those periods when the Tieasury I", shrieking for economy and the Secietary of State is giving way.
