THE FUTURE OF THE ARMY. THE House of Lords discussed recently various expedients for attracting men to the Army, the Duke of Bedford, who opened the debate, contending that a substantial increase of pay was the only alternative to conscrip- tion. The moral of the speeches, and especially that of Lord Lansdowne, appears to be that even with the present conditions there is no great difficulty in obtaining a large number of men for the Army, and that I with some further inducements it would be 'easy to obtain, from a voluntary system of enlistment, as many men as we are ever likely to want. The martial spirit and courage of men of the classes from which recruits are drawn is attested by the fact that recruiting is always most active at a time of war. Thus we see that whilst last year there were 14,000 recruits in the first four months, this year, on the other hand, there have been 22,000. Then again, the response to Her I Majesty's appeal to her old soldiers has been most satisfactory, and with a total of 30, C00 desiring to return to the colours, a body of 20,000 has already been enrolled. These figures are the more remarkable because the Queen's appeal appeared at a time of almost unparallaled demand for labour, when, to the abundance of work afforded by prosperity in trade, was added the very large diminution in the number of available workers, which was occasioned by the calling up of the Reserves. How to draw men to the Army is a very old problem which the War Office have generally attempted to solve by trusting to chance, and the spirit of our young men. Of course, as the ordinary comforts of human existence have increased, so the lot of the soldier has improved, and the unreasoning discipline of former times has also been relaxed. But there is still much to be done to improve the conditions of service, and, what is equally important, to increase the soldier's chances of obtaining civil employment when he leaves the Army. The policy of the War Office has been directed too much in the past to the getting of recruits by hook or by crook "si possis recte, si non quocunque modo." There has not been a sufficiently systematic attempt to popularise the Army, to make the soilder who is at home on furlough the most effective recruiting officer. Lord Lansdowne showed a statesmanlike apprehen- sion of one of these points when he said it was unfair that men joining the Militia and Volunteers should afterwards be asked to offer themselves for foreign service, under conditions which made it impossible for any but a strong-minded man to refuse, but it is open to question whether the bounty system, for which he expressed a preference, tends in all cases to popularise the Army permanently. The bounty system works admirably in some instances, but it should be reserved rather for exceptional circumstances than for systematic use. There are plenty of men who may be tempted by a bounty, but the bounty m the majority ol the, cases is soon spent, and its advantage to the soldier, is not equivalent to that Arising from an increase of pay or pension. The more one coniiders this matter the more one is "driven to the.con- jctusioh of the Dtike of Bedford, that if Britain desires to maintain a strong Army, OIl the voluntary system, she must be prepared to pay her soldiers more liberally. In that way a larger number of educated men would be induced to serve in the ranks, and i would be possible to increase still further th8 attractiveness of the Army by extending tke facilities for enabling Bon commissioned officers to obtain commissions by passing examinations, as well as by service in the field.
One of the London vestries has just taken THE PREVENTION novel step which is enough 'b OF to make the old parish CONSUMPTION. beadle turn in his grae, This is nothing less than house to house delivery 0 a carefully drawn up medical statement a8 the best means to be adopted by the pubhc for the prevention of consumption." Fourteell directions are given for avoiding the introdu0 tion of the tubercle bacillus into the Systoze. Some of the most important refer to tn: necessity for boiling milk, and the thoroug ct cooking of meat, and also to the danger arisilloo from domestic pets, such as cats or birds! affected with tuberculosis. Other direction9 give simple rules to improve the general health and increase the power of resistance to tbÐ tubercle bacillus. These include cautionS against excessive smoking, against drinkipg fomented liquor at other than meal tiØles, and against violent excercise. All these are excellent suggestions, and should profS invaluable in the prevention of consumption. There has been notb' ing more terrible, sinc* THE ABANDONMENT the massacre of Catfl" OF PEKING. pore, than the abandon ment of the EuropeatJ community at Peking t its fate. No one will question the wisdom 0 the Admiral's decision that, under the circuØ; stances, no attempt at relief was possible, nevertheless it is not surprising that the should be moved to deep indignation tbt't nothing could be done to avert this gbasttf climax. Many people on the spot forest the present troubles months ago, and though it is always easy to be wise after the event, it 0 singular how little heed was paid by the severe Governments to the many warnings of colIling peril. It is clear that when the EmpresS Dowager was pretending to suppress the Boxers," she was working for the extermi0* tion of the foreigners. But one would thi°^ that the Ministers would have rightly diriae the real truth of these proceedings, and b»^e acted accordingly. If they could not halCJ induced the Peking Government to abondo11 its murderous projects, they could have, t least, withdrawn the Legations and foreign residents to a place of safety in Tientsin. It true the British could not have removed witb out the other Legations, but then if some b^ to stay behind to be killed, they need only bae been a very few, and not the many. The thro or four hundred marines (of whom 75 were British) sent up to Peking for the protectiotJ '0 of the Legations, only added to the provocate11 without being in any way effective for defence, The seizure of the Taku Forts might also have been delayed until it was certain that $A persuasive measures had failed. Once free from the entanglement of Peking we could b$le afforded to regard the situation with equanimi^'
