BACK FROM BATTLEFIELDS
Corporal of Uncle Sam's Army
Trip of Relief.
From Manila to Japan and CWna Arrival
at Honolulu and Hospitality of People
Hero Kindnesses Will Be Remembered.
U. S. AnsiY Hospitai, Ship Re
lief, Honolulu nAnn )R, July
After soveral weok? service as
an overflow hospital while tbo
campaign against tho l'llipinos
was tbo hottest, tho Relief began
early in Juno to disohargo con
valescent patients and to take
aboard in thoir stead raon whoso
physical condition forbade their
remaining in the Philippines and
who wore not nblo to undertake
tho hardships of a journey to the
United States on army transports.
By July 22 tho 230 cots wero fill,
oa and at 5 a. m. of thut day tbo
Rolief steamed uway from her
place of auohoriug nn! bogan the
long Boa voyago to Sau Fran
eiduo. As tho vo3sol Eteamed ont of tbo
historic bay past the numorous
warshipB, transports and mer
chantmen lying nt iinohor in the
harbor, away from tbo ecoue of
Dowoy's grcst achievement and
from tho bloody field 4 of Luzon,
many and conflicting whore tho
emotions that arose in the broastH
of tho men aboard. All were clad
to be takou away from historic
Manila with hor mass-crown
walls, "ivy mantled towew," ro
mantic streets, and grim fortiGcv
tions which they bad helpd to
subdue, although many had Hpent
a year of tho beet part of thoir
lives in doing patriotio eorvice at
or near tho city where tho world a
interest has oontorod for so many
months. Tho fever laden and
mosquito infested Bwamps of tho
L'MHig anu ot tue nortti lino re
mained tho haunts and strong
holds of hostilo insurgonts, but the
mon iu tho Reliof had no remorso
at loavinc the scones of thoir cam
paign. Tho spiteful hiss of tho
Mauser or tho sickening screed)
if the Remington wero no doubt
at thdt timo making some Americ
ans feel uncomfortable, but their
songs were things of tho past to
tho departing veterans.
llien oamo tuoucuts of com
rades whoso lives wore sacrificud
for the honor of tho ilac in tht.t
land so far from homo and friends.
Tho minds of nil recalled lowly
mounds in various places where
rest tho remains of men as brave
and trne as any who over wore tho
blue or followed the starry banner
to victory. They too, hop 3:1 ono
day, after tbe storm of battle, to
see thoir lovod ones beyond tho
sons, whore the horrors of war aro
but vaguely ira iginod. A fow such
thoughts as tUeso and a naif form
oil conjecture as to what may bo
theultunato result of tho expan
sion policy bo recently adopted by
the United States and tho Reliof
had pissed by Corregidor Island
into the OhinaSaa.
As tho ship sped northward on
a lino parallel to the Luzon coast
the patients nnd hospital attend
nnts secured a fine view of Borne of
the moHt boautifnl scenery of the
Philippines. Tho Boa was smooth
md it was not until the oveninc

affeotod almoitnll onboard, but
the unnloasantness lasted only a

days coiling and taking on provi

The first death on tho voyago
occurred at Nagasaki. Private
Davall of tho Colorado regimont
died of blood poisoning, the rosult
of a bullet wound in tho knee.
Tho trip from Nagasaki to Yo
kohama was through the Island
Sea of Japan, aud the ecjuery en
joyed on the trip beggars all de
scription. Tho sea is generally
narrow and studded with boauti
ful greou ialauds, with hero and
thero a quiet villaco noatlinc
down among tho trees. The
mainland presented almost evory
variety of landscape views, from
tho fortilo and verdant mountain
side to tho rocky and barren vol
canic slope; but all scorned to oom
bine to mako tbe scenery unparal

Sunday morning July 3, tho
Relief entered Yedo Bay but ran
aground 6a a sand bar at Sarato
ga Spit about 8 a. m. where sho
lay until midnight when she float
ed at high tido. Early the next
morning sho ateamod into Yoko
hama harbor where she remained
for eight dnye, taking coal aud
water aud waiting for n typhoon
to upend its fury.
While at Yokohama tho pa
tients and hospital attendants
of the Reliof received manv lokons
of kindness from tho people of tho
city. A party of American mijHion
ary ladios, headed by Min3
Margarot M. Kuhna, dts rilm'od
flowers, papore, book-, ptctur s
and Japanese ami Chiiie? curio
among the paticutn. Tiiey h'ho

iu various other way, contributed
to tho comfort and pleasure of tho
Tho Amoriuan morohauts of tho
oity contributed fruits, jollies and
other delicacies which wore a very
agreeable addition to tho ronulnr
bill of fare. The Japanese Naval
club prosentod tho Rolief with ton
nne plants which will probably
remain among tho attractive
features of tho hospital ship for
years to come. Prinoo Henry
of Prussia who happened to bo at
lokonama aboard tuo llagship ot
the Pacific squadron, visited tho
Relief nud by a kindly word here
and thoro, cheered up n large
uumbor of patients.

Wyoming regiment diod of nuo

kohama July 11, tho Roliof was
tosbod about with groat violonco
by the angry waves, but tho latter
part of the trip wao very ploasant.
Before Honolulu was roaohod all
vestigo of seasickness had dis
appeared aud all wore in good
condition to appreciate tho royal
welcome givon thorn by the open
hearted people of this enchanted
On account of tho royal manner
in which the soldiers were treated
when tlmy Htoppod at tlotm

Philippines, nil looked forward
with pleaaaut anticipations of a
few days or hours at lesst flight-
Booing here, and thoy were not
disappointed. They havo receiv

American city. Soldier and
citizen are alike Americans, and
tha trig winch gives them th
great privileges which mako life
