AUTHORITY FOE INCREASE AND REORGANIZATION OF THE REGULAR AND
VOLUNTEER MILITARY FORCES.

[From report of the Adjutant-General.]

On the passage of the joint resolution, approved April 20, 1898, demanding that
Spain relinquish its authority and government in the island of Cuba and to withdraw
its land and naval forces from Cuba and Cuban waters, the Army of the United
States consisted of 2,143 officers and 26,040 enlisted men.

Under the above resolution and the act of April 22, 1898, the President issued a
proclamation April 23, 1898, calling for 125,000 volunteers. This was followed on
May 25, 1898, by a proclamation calling for 75,000 volunteers.

The approval of the act of April 26, 1898, increased the Kegular Army to 63,106
men, to be reduced at the end of the war to a peace basis, namely, 26,610 enlisted
men. Meeting this instruction of the Congress, the men enlisted under the above
act (practically for the war with Spain) were informed, in General Orders, No. 40,
May 10, 1898, that they would be granted their discharge, if desired, at the close of
the war, upon individual application.

By the act approved May 11, 1898, Congress authorized, in addition to the volun
teers provided by the act of April 22, the organization of a volunteer brigade of engi
neers of not more than 3,500 men. The same act authorized the organization of an
additional volunteer force not exceeding 10,000 men, possessing immunity from disease
incident to tropical climates.

The protocol was signed August 12, 1898, and on September 5, 1898, the first organ
ization of volunteers was mustered out of the service. This was followed immediately
by orders for the muster out of nearly one-half of the Volunteer Army.

On the signing of the treaty of peace, April 11, 1899, it at once became necessary to
muster out all the volunteer organizations, but, as stated heretofore, the volunteers
in the Philippines cheerfully remained and rendered service until the Government
was able to send regular and volunteer regiments to relieve them.

The act of March 2, 1899, authorized the President to "enlist" from the nation at
large 35,000 volunteers, or so much thereof as might be necessary. Under the same
act Congress authorized the recruitment of the Regular Army to 65,000 men.

Under the act of March 2, 1899, authority was given the commanding general,
Department of Porto Rico, to recruit a battalion of volunteers (400) from among the
Porto Ricans, and such recruiting began on March 24, 1899.

On July 5, 1899, the President, through the Secretary of War, ordered the organi
zation of ten regiments of volunteer infantry; on July 18, 1899, of two regiments of
volunteer infantry and a regiment of volunteer cavalry (the three regiments last
named to be organized and recruited in the Philippine Islands) ; on August 17, 1899,
of ten additional regiments of volunteer infantry; and on September 9, 1899, of two
additional regiments of volunteer infantry (the enlisted men and company officers of
the last two regiments to be colored).
