Sacramento, April 2, 1883.
IGeneral Orders, No. 17.]

I. Upon the recommendation of the Board of Location and Organization, and by virtue of
the authority conferred upon the CommanderJin-Chief, by Section 1938 of the Political Code,
the "San Bernardino Cavalry " Company, unattached, First Brigade, N. G. C, is hereby dis-
banded, and ceases to be an organization of the National Guard of California, for the following,
amongst other reasons :

1. For several months the total number of officers, non-commissioned officers, and privates,
has fallen below the minimum prescribed by law.

2. At the inspection of said company, February 4, 1882, made by orders from these Head-
quarters, Colonel J. A. Turner, A. A. G., Inspecting Officer, reported very unfavorably of the
company ; said that '' there was a lack of drill, discipline, and appreciation of the duties of the
National Guard ;" and further recommending, that •' if there was not a marked improvement
by the next inspection, the company should be disbanded." Reports and returns received since
the above date, show that this company, instead of having improved, has steadily deteriorated,
and fallen below that standard of efficiency which will be required of all companies in the
National Guard.

3. The Brigadier-General commanding the First Brigade recommends the company should be
disbanded as a cavalry and reorganized as an infantry' compan}' : and the same recommenda-
tion was made at a late meeting of the company, but coupled with a demand that it should be
fully uniformed and equipped by the State, as the members were unable to do so themselves.

II. Brigadier-General W. W. Smith, commanding First Brigade, will detail an officer of his
command to receive and receipt for all property in possession of said company and belonging to
the State, which he shall immediately forward to these Headquarters. He will, also, give hon-
orable discharges to members of the company. The officers of said company are hereby hon-
orably discharged from the service of the State.

Bv order of the Commander-in-Chief.

GEORGE B. COSBY,

Adjutant-General.
