Upon his arrival, Govornor
RooBevelt shook hands with sev

then took the stand, after Col.
Davis had administered tho oath.
"When was the first complaint
you heard of tho rations?" asked
"May I answer that in my own
way" asked tho govornor.
"Well, it waB aboard ship at
Tampa. I saw a man, I think bis
name was Ash, I know be camo
from Kentuoky throwing away a
can of tho eo-callod roast beef. I
askod what wai tho matter and be
said ho could not eat it. I told
him not to bo a baby, and that
ho did not volunteer for a good
time and ought to be able
to take what camo. I thought no
moro of tho mattor until I heard
that complaints were being made
on all sides. Thon I mado in

beef was part of the regular ration
aud thata all tho yoluntoera.woro
"I spoko to Colonel Wood about
it and said it was tho regular
ration. I ate a mouthful, or two,
myself, but I could not oat it."
Governor Roosevelt spoko of the
issue of rations in Cuba and said
that although ho did not liko the
beof and his men would not eat it,
he never heard anyone say it was
an "unfit ration."
"What did the meat look liko ?"
"When tho cans wero opened,
thore was a covering of slime. It
was unattraotivo. Tho meat was
stringy and it did not agree with
the men who ato it."
"Gould you not eat it, when
served with onions and potatoes."
"I think at that limo I could
have eaten my hat, if I could havo
hadonionB and potatoes. Tho men
would havo eaten anything with
fresh vegetables. They stowed
tho meat with mangoes aud ate
it. Some of tho mon seemed to
eat the meat without difficulty or
distress, but it was not suitable
for sick or half sick men."
Governor Roosovelt told at
length of his attempts to got sup

statements no made to tho army

attempts to organizo a transporta

THE ARMY REORGANIZATION
Washington, Moroh 25. The
War Department has beon asked
if some of the volunteer regimonts
returning from Cuba, which wore
organized aa immunes could bo
ro-enlisted in their entirety. It
was stated that some of theso re
giments dosiro to so onlist and bo
uehi'to tho Philippines.
In reply tho department says'
that such enlistments canot be
mado. Tho temporary ro-onliet-monts
provided for under tho
army law aro to bo mado from
volunteer troops now serving in
tho Philippines, who will bo sub
ject to immediate muster out as
soon as tho ratihcation of the
poaco troaty is proclaimed.
It is oxpooted that General Otis
will organizo a brigado or moro of
these mon. Tho organizations
will bo ontiroly now and
no semblanco of tho former
State regiments will bo maintain
ed. It is possiblo that some of
tho volunteer officers of tho State
militia who havo shown great
aptitude in military matters will
be givon commissions in the tem
porary regiments to be organized
in the Philippines.
Theso now rogimonts will not
be kept in servioo very long un
less the situation in the Philip
pines beoomes much worse. Tho
belief is oxprosnod that this is
not likely, as the reports from
General Otis for a week or ten
days havo indioatod an early col-
tuoflapao of the rebellion in Luzon.
The temporary organizations will
be rotained until tho regular
troops now under orders for Ma
nila reaob that plaoo.
