A Washington dispatch says: Heuenii Nelson A. Hililes wants Uncle Sam to hurry up in petting ready for war and thereby avoid it. He asks congress for more than Sir.,000,000 for coast defense work next year, lie also wants two more regiments of artillery properly to man the harbor fortifications already constructed. He urges the addition of at least 10.000 men to the strength of the array aud he would give tho president power to ncrease the standing army to 70.000. He asks for five more regiments of nfantry at once, and would send men to Alaska to occupy three new forts. These are among the recommendations in the report of General Miles tc General Ttiissell A. Altrer. secretary ol war. The. secretary heartily favors the plan to add two regiments to the artillery service and thinks troops ought to be sent to Alaska, to maintain law and order. General Miles' recommendation of 815.000,000 for coast defenses is significant in tlie 1! g ht of tbc fact that the government has appropriated 520,000,000 for such fortifications during the last ten years. From an average of 52,000,000 a year to 815,000,000 is a big bound.
