REPORT OF THE MAJOR GENERAL COMMANDANT OF THE UNITED STATES

MARINE CORPS.

HEADQUARTERS UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS,

Washington, D. C., September 30, 1911. Sir: In compliance with the department's instructions of June 19, 1911, I have the honor to submit the following report of the condition and service of the United States Marine Corps for the last fiscal year, and, in connection therewith, to transmit the annual estimates for its support during the coming fiscal year.

. During the period covered by this report inspections of the marine barracks at the navy yards and stations, both in the United States and in the insular possessions thereof, have been made, as far as practicable, either by the undersigned or by officers of the adjutant and inspector's department. Such of the barracks as have not been inspected during the past year will be inspected in the near future. Favorable reports as to the personnel, so far as pertains to health and discipline, have generally been made of those posts which have been visited by the inspecting officers. Adverse criticism has been made of some of the barracks, due to their being obsolete both as to construction and capacity, but there is no way of obviating this unless Congress appropriates for new and necessary barracks.

At all the stations of the Marine Corps in the United States the amount of guard duty which the officers and men of the corps are called upon to perform is such as not to allow sufficient time off duty to permit of their proper instruction in the many and various details of their profession. This office intends to recommend in the near future that the department direct 'that except in emergencies privates will not be detailed for guard duty oftener than once in three days." This is believed the maximum amount of guard duty that should be required. It also intends to recommend that the department direct commandants of navy yards and stations to appoint boards to make a study of the yards and stations to which

a attached, so that the proper performance of guard duty may be carried on with the least number of sentries.

ESTABLISHMENT OF RECRUIT DEPOTS.

Recruit depots are being established at Philadelphia (two companies), Port Royal (three companies), Mare Island (one company), and Puget Sound (one company), to which men enlisted in adjacent territory will hereafter be sent for careful, systematic instruction for a period of about three months prior to their assignment to regular duty. It is not believed that as good results can be obtained with
