that stronger action than what I recom

Ihe lloiiril of Ordnance.
Washington. Nov 23 —The auntml report
of the Isiurd of ordnance and fort ill a
tlons Juat mad-' public sums up concise
ly a very large amount of experlmen-al
work a.-.-omplished by the t:oai<l during
the past year. A gcneia] statement of
wha* Is needed In the future Is contained
In the following paragraphs:
"The work of equipping our roast for
tifications Is progressing rapidly, or-1 a
large portion of the new armament Is al
ready Installed There Is Imperative need
for an adequate force of trained artiller
ists to care for and man the gun* now
mounted. The board, therefore, deem# It
within Its province to Invite the utteut -n
of Congres* to the necessity for reorgani
zation and matsrlul Increase of the ar
tillery arm of the service.
“In this connection, also, the h or-l
recommends that steps he taken at an
early date to provide the coast art ill ry
personnel with suitable rang * and other
facilities for carrying out each year a sys
tem of practical drill and target pra lice
with heavy guns under condition* p
-proxlmatlng those of actual service.
"As the primary object of the defenses
is to protect the harbors and waterways
along our coasts, ihe guns are. as u rule,
so placed that target firing with full
• 'narges and at the longer ami more Irn
l-ortam ranges can seldom take place
without endangering the live- ami dam
aging the proiwrty of private cltlxens
This Is partlcatuily true In case of fortl
flrallone defending the larger harbor*,
where there ls shipping constantly with
in range and where private houses are
■in such close proximity to the gun* to
be seriously affected hy shock
"At least three practice ranges should
he provided-one for the North Atlantic,
one for the South Atlantic and Gulf, and
one for the l’aclflft coast."
