In Kansas City are a number of law-
yers who conceived the idea of making
an imposing spectacle of themselves at
the opening of the circuit court there
every morning. Monday morning much
interest was attached to the opening of
the sessions of the fonr divisions of
the circuit court in Kansas City, be-
cause it was the day agreed upon by
one hundred members of the bar to in
trodnee the innovation of standing up
during opening ceremonies. There was
rnijeh opposition to thej proposed inno-
vation, many of the leading lawyers of
the city characterizing it as flunkey
ism, pure and simple. These turned
out in force, and the court room was
erowded when the hour of opening ar-
rived. The four judges had all placed
themselves on record as opposed to the
innovation, and their failure to take
notice of it when they opened their
courts as usual Monday morning had a
depressing effect upon the reformers.

One of the infant industries of the
country, says an exchange, is ostrich
farming. There are probably less than
2.000 ostriches on the farms near Pasa
dena, Cal , Phoenix, Ariz , San Antonio,
Tex., and Jacksonville, Fla., but if the
project of consolidating the business in
the hands of one strong company is
carried ont, the history of ostrich farm-
ing in Cape Colony, where the business
has its greatest development, will be
practically repeated in this country.
We have ample areas that so nearly re-
produce the conditions in Cape Colony
and also in Hanssaland and Somali-
land from which the feathers derived
from wild ostriches are mainly ob-
tained, a8 to justify the belief that the
industry may have large and successful
development in America. About twen-
ty years ago the statistics of Cape Col-
ony gave eighty-six tame ostriohes in
that region. The number increased to
155.000 in 1891 and to 267.698 in 1898,
and about 300,000 pounds of feathers
The Times has on several occasions
recently oalled attention to the war de-
partment’s plan for establishing mili-
tary training schools at certain military
posts throughout the country, and we
have urged that El Paso make an effort
to have one of these schools established
atSFort Bliss. The New York Sun in
commenting on the department’s plans
“The schools of application for of-
ficers of the United States army were
organized for the purpose of instruct
ing the subordinate officers and the non-
commissioned officers of the different
arms of the line (infantry, cavalry, ar-
tillery and engineers) in their speoial
duties, and to teach officers the higher
branches of the art of war, with a view
to fit for them for higher commands.
“In order to fnlly understand the ne-
cessity for a general staff college, as
proposed by the secretary of war, and
warmly advocated by the most progres
sive of the army .officers, a brief re-
view of the present system of instruc-
tion is almost a necessity. The rela-
tions of a staff college to this system
then will appear dear.
‘The earliest school for officers in
this oountry was the Artillery school at
Fort Monroe, Va , which was establish-
ed soon after the civil war as the result
of the experience of that great strng
gle. The oommandant is seleoted by
the war department, and - the instruct-
ors are chosen mainly on his recom-
mendation. As Btudents, four lienten
ants from each regiment of artillery are
detailed for a course of two years. The
subjects of study, according to the lat-
est recommendations, comprise, in four
departments, artillery and ballistics
military engineering and the art of
war; steam, mechanism, electricity and
mines; and chemistry, explosives and
"The engineer school at Willets Point,
N. Y.. was established originally about
the same time as the Artillery school,
and is also the result of our experience
in the civil war. Its present organiza-
tion dates from 1885. The commandant
is selected by the eeoretary of war on
the reoonrn endation of the chief of
Engineers, the instructors are the cap-
tains on duty there, and the students
are the newly assigned officers of the
engineer corps, and specially detailed
officers of the other arms. The course
comprises military engineering, torpedo
drills, civil engineering, field astron-
omy and military photography. For
engineers the course is two and one-
half years, for other officers six months.
“The infantry and cavalry school at
Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, was estab-
lished in 1881. Its commandant and
iustrnotors are seleoted by the war de-
partment, and the stndents are lieuten-
ants of infantry and oavalry sent there
from the different regiments. The
course comprises military art, infantry
and oavalry drill, law, engineering and,
to a limited extent, artillery. The
course is two years.
“The oavalry and light artillery
school at Fort Riley, Kansas, is design-
ed more particularly to be a school of
instruction for drill and practice, the
theoretical studies being subordinated
to the practical work of these two arms
of the service. It was established in
1887. The commandants of the two
arms are seleoted by the war depart-
ment, the stndents are the officers serv
ing in the troops and batteries stationed
there at any time.
“Evidently, then, each school of appli-
cation has its special mission. Only at
the artillery sohool and the infantry
and oavalry sohool are tanght the
higher branches of the art of war, strat
egy and military history, while none of
them has a thorongh coarse in the’dn
ties of the staff. Thus we have really
no sohool at which staff officers oan be
educated and trained, and none in
whioh a sufficient course is given in
laying the foundation for the education
of officers for the higher commands.
At Leavenworth the subject of tactics
demands so much time that the study
of strategy is necessarily curtailed, and
at Fort Monroe fortification and artil-
lery must absorb most of the available
time. A staff college Is therefore
needed to complete the present system
of instruction, and this need is one of
the greatest needs of the army today.
"Looking back over the history of the
staff schools of Europe, we see they,
too, resulted from the experiences in
war of the nations concerned.
"The great Berlin War Academy, es
tahlisbed in 1765, owes its origin to the
experiences of Frederick the Great in
the Seven Year's War; it has gradually
grown to be the highest military sohool
of the world. The French Eoole Su-
perienre de Guerre in Paris was estab-
lished byJNapoleon I, in 1808; and the
English staff college at Camberley was
established on aooonnt of the great lack
of competent staff officers in the Cri-
mean war. These schools have not only
continued in existenoe bnt have con-
stantly increased in importance and in
El Paso has a population of 22,500 and has put over a million dollars in building improve

now taps the Sierra Madre Range at Casas Grandes, a virgin region for the American^’

They have so proven their value to the
army and have grown so popular, that

“We, too, should take the lessons of
our war to heart, and in a proper staff
college lay the foundation for a future
United States army, as perfect in staff
officers and generals as the best that we
may have to contend with.”
