pected that prrllmlnary steps looking to
ward the organisation will b* taken at
a merging of the officers of the First
Bacall, n (hat is to tw held to-morrow
night at the Regimental Armory.
The matter of anew company wee dis
cussed with the Governor In Atlanta on
last Thursday by Col T. S. Wyliy, Jr.,
commundlng the First Infantry. Col
Wyliy went lo Atlanta for the especial
purpose of having a conference with the
Governor upon this question, Ihe Immi
nent prospect of the withdrawal of the
Savannah Volunteer Guards from the reg
iment showing plainly that some provis
ion would have to be made for re-*tab
ltshtng Its full strength.
Gov. Candler showed at once that he
was thoroughly In accord with the Idea
of restoring the First Infantry to Its full
strength He did not think that the com
mand should be allowed to remain one of
eigld oon.p..nlcs. ax It will be upon the
approval by Ihe Governor of the bill that
was reported yesterday as having passed
the Legislature, making Ihe Guards a
•eparati bat la In of heavy artillery.
By Hie wliheirawa. of Ihe Guards from
the First Infantry, plive for four com
part- s. an entire butt iMon. will be left
in ihe lira! Infantry. The Governor ssld
he was willing lo have the four companies
organized In Savannah, but Col. Wyliy
ehd noi believe ihnl would he feasible and
o told ihe Governor The Colonel said
h* thought It would he a better plan lo
have anolh-r company organized In Sa
vannah and three more formed at towns
In territory contiguous to this city.
Cot. Wyl.y said yesterday that he docs
not believe the s Ightesl difficulty will t>e
found In organizing another company In
Snvnnnah. In this belief theie may be

ber who declared mat the plan was Im
practicable and lhat those who took It
In hand would not be able to carry It

sively that they were mistaken, for Ihe

tion of another. Into three battalions,
making two companies for each. To t-sch
of inese battalion* two of tne six oui-of
;own companies that will be attached to
Ih- regiment will be added, so that each
naimlion will conriat of four compan.es.
me regulation number.
The beauty of Ibis plan la lhat the
administrative work of the regiment would
be made much easier than It would be
should some other osatgnne nt of com
panies be Hit upon, and th* necessity im
posed for the organization of a battalion
of out-of-town companies, the major ©‘
which would not be a Savannnhlan Hav
ing headquarters not only of tne reghn-rtt.
but of all three of the battalion* in this
city, would be a distinct advantage,
ami It Is for ihts reason lhat Col. Wyliy
given this plan hi# sanction An objec
tion to It that might b- mentioned would
lie tha consequent Inability of the balta.-
lon commander* to nave battalion drills
,n which more than two of their romps
nit a could participate, as It would eenree
y ever be Ihe rase lhat any of th# out
er town companies come 10 Savannah.
Another plan that has occurred to Col.
Wyliy thal he doe* no: regard with such
favor Is to divldo the six eomponles that
will exist In Savannah Into two battal
ion* at three companies each, attaching
to each one of Ihe out-of-town c-ymt**-
nlre, already In existence and n par; of
ihe regment. or that are to he formed.
In this plan would lie the a’vantage of
giving the bastallon commanders In Sa
vannah the chance to hove occasional hat
tnllon drills In which three of their com
panies. those In Savannah, might par
This plan would nvolve the formation
of foor out-of-town com .inie* ln*o a sep
arate battalion Such a ba talion, formed
of the companies ai Waynesboro. Btnt<**-
boro and Brunswick. I* now attached to
the First Infantry. O her officers agree
with the colonel lhat It would be the
wiser plan lo have three battal ons cf four
companies ench, two of ihe companies to
be loos ed hi Savannah and two to be at
contiguous places, an.l It is probable that
this will be the ffnnl course decided upon.
The ns-li.merit of romimnles of hl reg
imen! I* a matter that Is left to the dis
cretion of ihe commanding officer.
At Ihe meeting of the First Battalion
officers to-morrow night the question of
ihe organlsaton will probably be taken
up It l not known what steps will be
tak'n, but It *• not doubled ht the of
ficer* will seek to follow up the wishes
of Col Wyliy and provide for Ihe organ
isation of a six'll company of the First
Infantry In Savannah.
It t* possible that the plan that was fol
lowed In the organisation of Company D
of th' Guards may be adopted The three
commissioned offlrer* were elected by the
corps, and live member* of the three then
existing rtrmpanle* were detailed to be
sergeant# of the new company. The re -
milt was that the three officers and Ihe
five sergeants went to work with a will
and soon had the required number of
member*. Surh a plan. It I* believed,
might he worked lo advantage ir> the prev
ent ease. Forty men are required by the
revised military law of Ihe stale a* a
maximum number, and It Is believed that
the effort# of those whose Intercat would

It la thought no difficulty will exist The
officers' quarter* at the R. glmrr.inl Ar

Thl* arrangement would Involve a special
understanding wllh ttM companies that
now comprise the First Battalion, and

It Is particularly desired, however, that
the new company be housed In Ihe same

on this score Is felt.
