The opposition to the measure Is
strong and there are many reasons sub
mitted by those Interested why the
measure should bo defeated. It Is said
that the same bill has come up before
the senate at every session since the
Dick bill went Into effect and as many
times has been defeated.
It Is argued that the state has all It
eftn do to clothe and equip the mllltla
now In service; that the mllltla organi
zations have been pruned down to a
basis where they can he taken care of
by the state, and that additional troops
mustered Into the stnto service under
this measure would militate against the
present organization and tend to dis
courage the present national guards
It Is believed by many to be an ef
fort to create a law to enable the 8a-
vunnah Volunteer Guards to leave the
service of the state under the Dick bill
nnd still remain a "home guard" under
more lenient military laws. The fact
that only ex-soldlers who have had five
years or more service shall be ellglblo Is
cited as an Indication that this Is the
case; this, too, coupled with the fact
that the Volunteer Guards have never
been satisfied with the provisions of
the stringent government requirements.
