ANNUAL REPORT ON CONDITION OF ARMY Over Fifty Million * Kvpeiuleil l.nnt Year , lint Ten Millions IN llio Kx- tlinnle fur ( lie Yenr Unit IH to Come. WASHINGTON , Nov. 20. In his annual report , which was made public today , Secretary - rotary Lament renews his previous recommendation that the Infantry bo reorganized on the general Idea of three light and mobile battalions of four companies each to the regiment , Instead ot the cumbersome ten companies , a formation adopted a century age- and abandoned by other nations slnco the development ot modern magazine rifles ; and ho quotes Generals Sherman , Sheridan and Lieutenant General SchoflcUl In support of the necessity of the reorganization of the Infantry. The completion already ot some coast defenses and tbo approaching preaching completion of other modern batteries render necessary a larger force of artillerists , but no other Increase of the army Is asked for. The plan of seacoast de fence Involves 100 distinct batteries In over twenty harbors. Investigation this year has shown serious deficiencies In the arms and equipments of the state militia. When the states furnish tlio armories and defray all expenses Incidental to keeping their forces In training , Secretary Lament suggests that the United States should provide them with the Implements which they will need In active service arms and field equipments as the supply on hand Is totally Inadequate for serious and prolonged field operations. The secretary recommends that the Springfield rifle , caliber -15 , bo Issued to state troops , obsolete arms and equipments to be sold and the proceeds credited to the states , and that the states bo allowed to purchase from the department supplies at regulation prices. The report shows that , whereas , on the 1st of July , 1893 , ot our modern defense but one high-power gun was mounted , by the 1st of July next we will have In position seventy high-power breech-loading guns and nlncty- flvo breech-loading mortars of modern design , and by the following July , on completion of work already under way or provided for , 128 guns and 153 mortars. A battery of two or three of these guns takes the place of the former pretentious fort and Is vastly moro effective. The number of gun carriages completed and building , all of which will be finished within the next fiscal year. Is twenty twelve-Inch , sixty-nine ten- Inch , eighteen eight-Inch for guns and 153 for mortars. By July , 1S97 , there should bo ready seventy gun carriages and 123 mortar carriages. The total number of guns completed to date since the first appropriation Is sixty-one eight-Inch , fifty-six ten- Inch , twenty-one twelve-Inch and eighty mortars. With the money already provided thcro will bo completed by Juno 30 , 1S97 , seventy-two eight-Inch guns , eighty-seven ten-Inch guns , forty-seven twelve-Inch guns and eighty-eight twelve-Inch mortars. The-estimates of the department for the next fiscal year aggregate , $10,482,208. The armament'- 'trcopa4wlth UIio'abw- ; magazine arms was completed In May , and the armory Is'turning out 125 rifles or carbines per day. under the appropriation made last year. All the ammunition for small arms now made Is supplied with smokeless powder of American manufacture a"nd of satisfactory quality. The secretary says the Mississippi river commission has decided to discontinue the plan to Improve the river by bank protection , and to adept the plan of dredging channels In shoal places and maintaining with state and local co-operation an effective levee system. With this change * of policy the minority believe the function of the commlf.slon Is ended and the work should be turned over to the secretary of war. The 310 Apache prisoners of Gcronlmo's band have , the secretary saj-s , led a quiet , pastoral life at Fort Sill , and have reached a self-supporting conndltlon. He recommends that In time title to the 30.000 acres they occupy bo acquired by the government and that they then ho placed under control of the Indian bureau. The report shows total expenditures for the war department for 1S9B , aggregating $51,803,298. ONI3 SL'tiAK TIll'ST ' CASH IN COUIIT.

It Is expected that one of the first decisions to be rendered by thu United States supreme court when It reassembles will be on the writ of error In the case of Elvcrton R.

Chapman's was taken as a test case by the government largely to govern the prosecution in the other long litigated cas"s.

The joint congressional library committee has decided not to Investigate the accounts of Librarian Spofford. When the committee was appointed It was understood It would be optional with It to go Into the question of th& accounts , and the committee for sotno days has had under consideration the advisability of Investigating the charges of Irregularity made against Spofford a year ago. The question was taken up In secret session yesterday , and , after an exchange of views covering two hours' time , a decision was readier to allow the matter to rest where It was left by the Treasury department. Said r member of the committees today : "Wo shoulr have gene Into the Investigation It there had been anything to Investigate , but wt have satisfied ourselves that Mr. Spofforc' ' owes the government nothing. It Is true there was a discrepancy In his accounts amounting to about 130,000 , but this was duo to his method of bookkeeping. This money from thu beginning was In n government depository , but It was there with some ot .Mr. Spofford's own funds. The accounts were so entangled that the respective accounts could not bo determined until the treasury Investigation $ was made , The amount duo the government has been turucil Into the treasury. This leaves a shortage , and , satisfied as wo are that there was nc Intention of wrong doing , wo have concluded not to open up the subject at all. Wo arc of the opinion that the trouble was duo to the complication of duties Imposed upon Mr. Spofford , and wo shall , I think , try to prevent a recurrence by recommending the appointment of a registrar of copyrights.

Thcro was but little activity In local railway circles yesterday. There were three excellent reasons for this. In the first place , a holiday means that the passenger men can have at least a half holiday ; secondly , several of the railroads took off BOIIIO of their freight trains , nml , thirdly , the telegraph service was so Interrupted as to Klvo but llttlo work to the clerks of the various headquarters who keep track of affairs along their respective lines. \Vevl.iraday night's storm provnl to bo most severe , and there Is not n railroad In Nebraska that did not suffer deleterious effects In consequence. Telegraph poles by the hundred and telegraph wlro by the mlle went down during the night. The wires became covered with a heavy coating of sleet , and when the wind came along and steadily swayed the wires to and fro they could not stand the vibration with their Increased weight and Just tumbled down In 11 heap. The rails also became covered with slcel and their slippery condition caused the wheels of the locomotives and coaches to slip and slide along , delaying all the trains during the day. The Union 1'aclflc yesterday morning found over 300 of Its telegraph poles between Columbus and Kearney measuring their length on the snow covered ground. ' It Is needless to add that all telegraphic communication between these points was sus pended. West of Kearney there was not BO much trouble , although the wires were pretty well tingled. The poles remained upright , however , and the wires did not fall down. At 1 o'clock In the afternoon the telegraph department reported that the worst trouble was between Schuylcr and Elm Creek. Largo gangs of men were sent by Superintendent Korty from several stations along that part of the line , and It Is said at headquarters that all the wires will bo In working condition by tills morning. It will take several days , though , to put the telegraph department In as good condition as It was before the storm. The Burlington alee reported much damage along Its line. No telegraphic communication could bo had at headquarters yesterday morning with points west of Aurora. The presumption Is that the wires and the poles beyond that point have nil gonu down In the etorm. The Ulkhorn had no communication whatever with the western part of Its road during the morning. The Iowa lines are nol so badly handicapped. They were receiving no news from Chicago headquarters yester day. This , however , Is because all the Chicago cage offices are closed and the Windy City haa born captured by King Foot Hall , and not because the telegraph wires In Iowa are lying on the ground. No trouble has been reported along any of the Kansas HncjS and so far Is la known all .the wires thor6iiro In working co'ndltlon. The storm was a' general one throughout Nobracka and but few points 'escaped UH fury. There , was more sleet than snow and everywhere there was , an abundance of wind during the night , although It n-ng.iot ; so very high nt any point. Most ot the general officers en mo down to their desks In the morning to open their mail and to read the telegrams that did not come. The clerks were given a holiday generally , although a number ot them showed up Just to convince their superior officers of their loyalty to the company's Interests. The foot ball fever had oven spread through the railroad headquarters and the local ticket offices and the railroaders were during the morning figuring out the probable scores of the day's game , rather than freight and passenger rates. All the ticket offices , Just for the looks of things and not for any real business , were open jcstcrday morning from S o'clock until 12. Then the ticket men deserted their posts to enjoy one of the few afternoons they have had to themselves slnco last summer's excursion to Hanscom park.

Macco's men snot from behind rocks and trees and gradually gave way before the Spaniards , who , encouraged by what they thought to be victory , pursued them.

IIMMI , O , KlIIINIIN , ; tl | .tllNNOIirl , O. For almost three hours yesterday afternoon Nebraska and Iowa struggled upon a rough and slippery fluid of Ice , and most of thu time In a snow storm , lu their annual championship foot ball game. When time was called on account of darkness , with a minute of the halt still left , neither eleven had succeeded In crossing Its op ponent's goal line , and the contest ended with the score 0-0. The tie gave the western championship to Iowa , for even had Nebraska won they would have been tied for thu title. Tomorrow afternoon the teams will meet again and make an effort to decide the su premacy. A more disagreeable day could not be Imagined for the game. When morning : dawned rain was falling steadily , and this changed into sleet as the temperature went down with thu advance of the day. At noon the regular foot ball 'Held at University park was a solid sheet of Ice , and It was found necessary to slake oft auother gridiron on another purl ot the grounds. This was but a slight Improvement. Soon after the game began snow commenced to full and continued to the finish. On account ot the Inclemency of the weather the game , which Is usually attended en mubse by the society people ot the city , was not witnessed by many of swelldom. The attendance was about 1,000 , constating principally of students and alumni ot the two universities represented on the field , and by football enthusiasts not to bo deterred by the weather. The game WUR a hard fought contest , anil was filled with Incidents calculated to keep up the enthusiasm of the spectators to the end. The condition of the ground neutralized Iowa's advantage In weight to a great degree , and to this Is duo lowa'x failure to score. Ac It was , Us goal wau nqver threatened , whereas on two different occasions It had excellent opportunity to cross No- braska's line. One occurred In the first and the other In the second half. When the first half was , within fifteen minutes of the end the ball U'IIB on Ne braska's fifteen-yard line. In the possession of Iowa. The contest wus waged within these fifteen yards for the next twenty-two minutes , for Ilia tlmekecpcr'B watch stopped and the fact was not discovered until the halt was forty-two minutes long. The ball changed hands frequently , until Iowa had it within five yards of Nebraska's goal on the first down. Here Nebraska stood Ilka a rock , and held like a stone wall against the rushes of Iowa's backs. By a mistake the officials allowed Iowa five downs , but on the last the ball was no nearer the goal than on the first down. Nebraska rushed It out of danger , and when the half was called It was on the ten-yard line , In Iowa's possession. Again In the second half Iowa seemed to bo In sight of victory. The half was within a few minutes of being up , with the ball In Nebraska's hands on Its fifteen-yard line. Nebraska gained nothing on two downs and Thorpe droppcil back for a kick. Milford - ford , center , snapped the ball back to him , but It flow over the quarterback'a head In the darkness. It rolled to within a foot of Nebraska's goal , when some one fell upon it. A uquabhlo ensued , and both captains finally agreed to call the game. Throughout the game Iowa showed to better advantage , had the ball the greater part of the tlma and kept It largely In Nebraska's territory. IOWA BUCKS VICIOUSLY. With the wind blowing a stiff breeze from the northwest , Captain Thorpe kicked oft for Nebraska and the game was begun. The punt was against a strong wind and failed to carry moro than twenty yards. Iowa at once began a scries of short , strong rushes against the Nebraska line , which was expected to bo such an easy thing. The line of the Lincoln men held well and the Kalns through It were not worth mentioning. Then Iowa called upon Meyers , Its sturdy and fleet-footed right halfback to advance the ball. Ho resondcd | with n run ot twonty-flvo yards. There was a flutter among the gold-colored flags , but the red and whlto waved a moment later when Iowa lost the hall to Nebraska on a bad fumble. Nebraska realized the strength of the opposing team and at once massed Ita strength back of the line for a tandem play. It gained a few yards the first tlmo. but on a repetition of the play the Iowa team was thuro low and ready ( o break It up. Nebraska was forced to punt and under adverse circumstances , as the wind from the west was strongly against them. For Iowa Meyers took the ball on a thirty-yard run between the- left end and tackle , and then followed a series of short rushes. In stopping one of thpBo Jones , Nebraska's left end , was hurt , but pluck liy resumed play u moment later. The ball went to Nebraska before Iowa had a chance to push It any further along toward the Nebraska goal. The loss of the ball wuu for BOIJIO rank holding In the line by Iowa. Captain Thorpe brought joy to llio Nabraukans by gaining four yards on u fake kick. An attempt to go through the line was unsuccessful , and Thorpe kicked for twenty yards. Hobbs returned the ball for Iowa , the exchange of punts giving neither sldo an advantage. Holbrank made a short gain for Iowa after Thorpe hnd ruturned the punt of Hobhs. Then thcro was M > mo fumbling ) l > y Hoth BldoM. HoblM failed to gather In Thorpe's second kick , and Wlg- Klns missed thu pigskin after Hobbs hud lot U got past him. Iowa finally captured the ball , twenty yards away from Nebraska's goal. With the coveted goal In night the lowans now put on a full head of etcam , but thu excellent tackling of Thorpe and Shcdd all hut neutralised their best effortx. Turner , tlio big right guard of the No- iruHka team , too , showed that ho was able to stop the advances of tlio lowans. On Iowa's last chance to aavo the ball ho wai. through the line like a flash , tackling the runner back of the line and throwing him for a loss of two yards. It was an olcgunt pleco of defensive work , ono of the mout meritorious Individual plays of the game. NKBRASKA ON THU AOGRESSIVB. The ball went to Nebraska , Iowa having fulled to gain the requisite flvo yards , thanks to Turner's timely tackle. Cook wan summoned and answcri-d with a run of four yards fnr the Lincoln lads.
