The highest percentage of unattached companies was that of the Eureka Guard, 95.16 ; and
the lowest, the Eagle Corps of Los Angeles, 57.52. The percentage of all the companies of the
N. G. C. present at muster was 72.55. Companj^ " H," of the Second Artillery Regiment, had
the highest percentage of tlie IST. G. C, and Company " B," Fifth Infantry' Battalion, the lowest.
The company turning out the greatest number of men was the Cadet Company of the Second
Artillery Regiment; but Company "H" of the same regiment deserves the highest credit, hav-
ing sixty-four men out of a possible sixty-five. Companies" F"and" H," of the First Infantry,
Companies " A," " C," " D," and " H," of the Second Artillery, Company " E," of the Third
Infantry, Company " A," of the Fifth Battalion, Company " F," of the First Artillery, the
Eagle Corps, San Diego City Guard, Stockton Guard, the Eureka Guard, all mustered more than
fifty men each. The lowest was Company " G," of the Second Artillery, with twenty-four men.
The following companies mustered less than forty men : Company " E„" of the First Infantry.
Company " G," of the Second Artillery, Company " B," of the Third Infantry, Company " B,"
of the Fifth Battalion, Companies " B," " E," and "G," of the First Artillerj', and the Oakland
Light Cavalry. Only three companies showed up at muster with the full minimum strength
required by law for a company to have on its roster — sixty-one men — viz.: Companies "C"
and " H," of the Second Artillery Regiment, and the Eagle Corps of Los Angeles.

The total line strength of the N. G. C. is 2,722 men, wliich shows, deducting Cadets, an
average of 65 men to each of the thirty-nine companies. The general, staff, and field officers
number 128, making a grand total of 2,860 men. Within the past year there was a net loss of
140 men from tlie company rolls of 1882, and if we exclude Cadets, a loss of 164, or of five men
to each company.

II. Taking tiie foregoing data into consideration, the Commander-in-Chief takes pleasure in
congratulating the N. G. C. on the results of the muster and inspection, the percentage present
at muster being very nearly three fourths of the total, and the discipline, military api^earance,
arms, and other property, in almost every instance, being reported as good.



77

III. He desires, however, to impress upon the officers commanding companies the necessity
of recruiting, so that instead of a falling off, as indicated above, the muster rolls of 1884 will
show a considerable increase in the numerical strength of the N. G. C.
By order of the Commander-in-Chief.

Adjutant-General.

II. The returns of Company "B," Fifth Infantry Battalion, Company " E," of the Second
Artillery, and Companies "A" and "B," of the First Artillery Regiments, have not yet reached
these Headquarters (two weeks delinquent). The percentages of these companies and of the N.
G. C. for August, 1883, are 'necessarily deferred to future Orders.

III. The persistent dereliction of duty on the part of some officers of the N. G. C, in trans-
mitting returns, orders, and other official papers, in the proper manner and at the prescribed
time, to intermediate and General Headquarters, calls for severe reprimand. If further perse-
vered in, the names of such delinquents will be published in General Orders.

IV. The quarterly demands of companies to which such officers are attached, and of those
companies whose commanding officers have failed to file in this office their official bonds, will
not be audited until said officers have fully discharged their duties and obligations in the prem-
ises.

V. Regimental and Battalion Parade Reports of the number of men " present for duty" on
July 4th, 1883, as prescribed by law, and on August 24th, 1883, in San Francisco, on the occa-
sion of laying the corner-stone of the Garfield Monument:

VI. From these figures, it will be seen the Second Artillery Regiment made the best showing
on July 4th, averaging, present, a fraction over 47 men to each company, excluding Cadets;
the First Artillery making the worst, with 43J average to each company, excluding Cadets.

On August 24th, in San Francisco, the Second Artillery again comes to the front with the
highly creditable showing of very nearly 63 men, average present, to each company, excluding
Cadets. The First and Third Infantry Regiments average about alike on both occasions — July
4th, 45 men ; and August 24th, 48 and 49 men respectively. The Fifth Infantry Battalion and
the First Artillery Regiment, having to transport their companies from a considerable distance
to the city, on August 24th turned out, the former averaging 34 men, and the latter 45' men,
excluding Cadets, to each company. The Gatling Battery, Company "A," Second Artillery
Regiment, turned out the largest number of men (93) of any company on August 24th.

VII. The Commander-in-Chief desires to express himself as highly gratified with the numer-
ical strength, discipline, neat and soldierly bearing of the thirty-four companies of the N. G.
C. that paraded in San Francisco on the twenty-fourth of August, all opinion evidently shared
in by the many thousands from home and abroad who viewed the procession on that day.

VIII. The reports of the results of "Target Practice" on September JO, 1883 (delinquent in
this office after the twentieth instant), will be published as soon as possible after their receipt,
in General Orders.

By order of the Commander-in-Chief.

VI. No reports of target practice have reached this office from the Eagle Corps of Los Ange-
les, Stockton Guard, and Chico Guard.

VII. According to the foregoing figures, the First Infantry Regiment had the highest per-
centage by companies, 32 per cent, and the Third Infantry the lowest, 22 per cent. The First
Artillery' Regiment had the highest actual percentage, 52 per cent, and the Second Artillery the
lowest, 38 per cent. The highest company percentage was Company " C," First Infantry Regi-
ment, 58 per cent, and the lowest. Company " A," First Artillery, but as the members of this
company were on duty at Stockton, Company " E," of the Second Artillery, should be credited
with the lowest company percentage, 11 per cent. Company " C," of the First Artilleiy Regi-
ment, Nevada City, had the highest actual percentage, 65 per cent, followed closely by Company
" C," of the First Infantry, 63 per cent. The lowest actual percentage was the Cadet Company
of the Second Artillery Regiment, 20 per cent, and the next lowest. Company " G," 27 per cent,
and Company " B," 28 per cent, of the same regiment. Out of the 1,527 men present and
shooting, 63, or 4 per cent, missed the target, half of whom are members of the Second Artil-
lery Regiment, which paraded the largest number of men to a company, averagiag over 45,
Company "A" turning out 66 men, the highest number, 12 of whom missed the target. Four-
teen companies had an actual percentage of 50 and over.

VIII. In General Order No. 38, c. s., injustice was done to the Fifth Infantry Battalion,
which should have been credited with 195 men parading on the twenty-fourth of August, in
San Francisco, instead of 142 men, as reported, thus averaging 49 men to each company, a
highly creditable showing, considering the distances to be traveled by these companies.

By order of the Commander-in-Chief.

GEORGE B. COSBY,

Adjutant-General.

II. The percentage of Company "A," Third Infantry Regiment, for September, 1883, was
75, and that of the National Guard, 70.91.

III. The return of Company "A," Third Infantry Regiment, is again delinquent at these
Headquarters, as also that of the Eagle Corps, of Los Angeles. The report of target practice of
the latter company has not been forwarded, which debars this office from giving statistics relat-
ing to the shooting of the entire force. No company in the N. G. C. has been so contumaciously
delinquent in properly forwarding returns and documents, required by law and regulations, as
the Eagle Corps, and on this account its commanding officer deserves to be severely censured.

IV. The reports of Target Practice of the Stockton Guard, which was duly forwarded in
proper time to Division Headquarters, where it still remains, gives tlie following figures: Per-
centage of company, 50 ; actual percentage, 52 ; number of men present and shooting, 60.
That of the Chico Guard was: Percentage of company, 38.23; actual percentage, 53; number
present and shooting, 50.

V. From the figures here given, the First Artillery Regiment had the highest percentage of
attendance at drill during the month of October, but calculating on a basis of 100 men to each
company, we find the percentage of this regiment to be 45 per cent, whilst the Second Artillery
Regiment had 46 per cent, and is properly entitled to the highest credit.

VI. According to an opinion rendered by the Attorney-General of the State, December 29,
1880, Companies " C " and " G," of the First Infantry ; Company " F," of the Second Artillery ;
Companies "A," " C," " E," and •' G," of the First Artillery, and the Chico Guard, cannot be
designated companies of the National Guard, as "that only is a company which the law
defines to be such," and tliese companies do not come up to minimum numerical strength
required by Subdivision 2, Section 1962, of the Political Code.

VII. In future the number of men in each company will be published, and the percentage
given without fractional parts, so that the actual number present at drill can be readily calcu-
lated. By this exhibit it will be found that Company "G," First Artillery Regiment, with a
percentage of 87.60, averaged only two men more at drill each evening than Company "A,"



83

Second Artillery Regiment, with a percentage of only 42.66 — less than half the former. The
Cadet Company, of the Second Artillery Regiment, had the largest attendance — 75 out of 83 ;
Company " C," of the same regiment, the next — CO out of 70 ; and Company " B," of the Fifth
Infantry Battalion, the lowest — 29 out of 64, rank and file.
By order of the Commander-in-Chief. GEORGE B. COSBY,

Adj u tan t- General .

Sacramento, December 31, 1883.

The return of Company " D," Fifth Infantry Battalion, for November, 1883, has not yet
reached these Headquarters. The new Company " E," of the First Artillery Regiment, has not
yet been fully organized, therefore there is no return for last month.

II. The foregoing figures show that the First Infantry Regiment had two companies below
the minimum strength required by law, the Second Artillery one, the Third Infantry two, and
the First Artillery four, making in all nine companies. None of the unattached are in this
category. The Colonels in command of these regiments should urge the officers responsible to
recruit without delay.
