Col. Cha'les K. Greenleaf, Assistant Surgeon-General,
was the llrst witness examined.
Dr. Phlneas S. Conner took tho w itness In hand
I and asked him what part ot the war lie had
observed. Col Groenleat said that he luid
seen Camp Alger, had witnessed some of the
scenes around Blboney. Cuba, had gone with
Cen. Miles to Porto Woo and had also been
Uter In Camp WikofT at Montauk Point.
,' K "How did you nnd things at Slboney In a
I medical way'" ajked Dr. Conner.
"When I not there I found that the medical
inpplles which were intended for the soldiers
"s bad not been landed, but were still on the
transports." replied tho Assistant Surgeon
General. "Who delayed the landlnc of supplies at Slb
eaer?" "I don't know." replied Col. Greenleaf.
"Who finally unloaded those supplies?"
"I did. I captured some positions and took
the law Into my own hands."
."You unloaded In thirty-six hours supplies

weeks? Why didn't Dr. Pope. Chief 8ureeon of

Qo'ne back to the Cuban campaign. Dr. Con
ner asked: "Do you think It pronor to send an

uls with only ono medical ofllcer to each regi
ment, and sometimes not that, nnd without
the proper medicine ana shelter?"
"No. that should not have been done, but In
Ihe circumstances It could hardly have been

Former Gov. Urben A. Woodhury ot Ter-

In answer to other questions Private Henry
said that the food and water on thn Grand
Dttehesse'eomlng from Cuba wore much better
thnn on tho Vlgllancla going down to Cuba.
Ho said that whn ho went to Cuba ho welched
IHO pounds and now woichs 170 pounds.
"I was well eared for and proporly treated
while In thn detention hospital at Camp WI
I kofT." said Private Henry In conclusion.
I Dr. Frank Donaldson of this city was thn
I first witness In tho afternoon session. He said
j that ho Joined Col. Roosevelt's rough riders ns
I acting Assistant Surgeon. He said that at thn
' outset In Cuba there wero not enough nurses
and stewards In the hospitals, and thnt those
I there were not efficient. ...... ,
In the yellow fevor hospital on the hill back
j of Blboney we had excellent oare. Thatwas
largely owing to tho twenty negro nurses
taken from tho Ninth Regular Cavalry."
j "Wero there no femalo nurses?"
"Yos: somo women wore nursing Dr. Iesser
of (ho Red Cross ln n tent. Dr. Lesser, to
show what he know about yellow fevor, estab
lished a hosDltal in a vino-clad Cuban house.
It wasn't long before ho nnd all his nurses
but ono wero down with yellow fever. They
were not able to do any good, but had to bo
Dr. Donaldson said that at Montauk ho
thought tho Medical Department had dono
well. Ths nursing, too. was In general satis
factory. "The only criticism I have to make,"
said Dr. Donaldson, "Is that In tho early part
ot tho war the records wero inadequate from
Insufficient clerical force, nnd becauso pa
tients were not pronorly labelled, their com
plaints could not always bo attended to."
Relative to tho statement that Capt. 0. B,
Wurdcnof the Seventh Regiment died of star
vation, Dr. Donaldson said that it was untrue.
"I, myself," said tho surgeon, "attended Capt.
vVurden, and ho got all tho attontlon possible."
James S. ttauers. n private ot Company K ot
the Soventy-llret Reglmont, who lives at 0
'West 107th street, testified that after the sur
render of Santiago his company had more food
than botoro, but oven then, he said, the coffeo
was not good. Somo ot it was green and tho
men did not know how to roast it.
"Did you oxnect to find coffee roasters in the
trenched?" asked Gen. Boaver.
"The men of the Sixteenth had them."
"Don't you know that you would have had
your heads blown off if you had made big fires
in tho tronclios?"
"I Buppose wo would."
"Don t you know that tho reason why greon
coffee was given to you by the Government
was thnt It wished you to have the vory best?"
"I've heard that, but our officers did not glvo
us a ebnnco to help ourselves llko the regu
"Then tho main reason." said Cant. Howell,
"why you did not get enough food seems to be
thnt your officers wore Inefficient?"
"Ys. sir. There seemod to bo enough food,
but our officers did not know how to cot at it.
The Sixteenth. Sixth and Twenty-fourth regu
lars had plenty of food while wo were nearly
starving. The regulars weie not ordered to
throw away their haversacks, but we were.
Thoe who oboyod wero doendent for food
uiion tho men who did not."
"Then," inquired Col. Hexlon. "Is It true
that while the regular officers were looklnc
out for their men vourvolunteeroflleers were
looking out tor themselves?"
"That's about the slzo of It." replied Hauors.
Mrs. Marv- Mansou ot 'Jl West Fifty-lint
street testllled with tcference to her work at
Camp Wikoff. especially the Third Infantry
Regiment, with which she labored. She said
that thn sick men had not sufficient clothlntr.
The relief association with which she was con
nected, distributed she said, about .'I.IMJU suits
ot underclothing. "The principal difficulty I
found." said Mrs. Mansun, "was that tho men
could nut assimilate tholr food. Whereas
there were only about 1(X) slok men ln the hos
pital, there were more who could not walk to
the hospital. There was always enough qui
nine In camp. The men of their own accord
vould take so ninny quinine pills that they
eould not hoar, and after they became deaf
they Lould not answer questions which would
enable us to help them.". ,.
"Were you aware," asked Gov. Woodbury,
"that while your foclety was trying to give
blankets and clothing to the men there
werHjtO.000 blankets in storehouses right at
Ca"o. sir. I did not know that."
"Did you ever see any soldiers living in
tents before?" uked Col. Sexton.
"Don't you think It nrael for tho Govern
ment to make soldiers live In tents and eat
coarse food'" continued Col. Sexton.
"I don't preteuil to criticise tho octloa of
tho Government." replied Mrs. Manson. "I
merely spoke of the discomfort ot tho soldiers
compared with the normal standards of com
fort. We women merely tried to do what we
could to lighten the cares of the men vvhoweie
"And I am pleased lo acknowledge." added
Col. Sexton, "that the services of the women
wero admirable and that you will always be
held in grateful remembrance by the men who
wei fortunate euough to enjoy your assist
ance." "Thank you." replied Sfrs. Mauson as she
left tho witness chair, , ,
beveral members ot the commission then
shook hands with Mrs. Manson and thanked
her tor the assistance which she gave to the
soldiers of the Third Infantry at CamD WikofT.
The commission then adjourned until this

WAsntnoTON. Nov. 18. Tho Treasury De
partment to-day received $in.025.14. tho
amount realized on thoealoof tho cargo of tho
British collier Restormnl. captured by tho
auxiliary cruiser St. Tatil off Santiago. Cuba,
In May last, and will distribute ono-half that
sum to Capt. Chnrlos D. Hlgsbeo and tho offi
cers and brew of Iho Amorlcan vessel. Thts
will bo Ihn first distribution of prlro money ns
a result of the wnr. Tho cargo brought $1.V
541, From this was deducted by the Prlr.e
Court, for fees and othor expenses, $681.80.
leaving $1.1,025.14!. As the capturing vessel
was tuperior to the Restormal, one-half of the
sum, according to the law, goes to tho Gov
ernment. It Is applied to the navy pension
fund for the care of sick and Indlgoot sailors.
This leaves $0.512.t7 for distribution to tho
offloors and erew. . ..,.
When the Restormal wa seized Capt. Bigs
gee was acting Independently of Admiral
Sampson's squadron. Under such circum
stances. Admiral Sampson's sharo of .one
twentieth will go to Capt. Slgsbee. In addition
to his regtilnr allowanoe of one-tenth, making
Capt. Blgsbee's prize money nmount to $070.
Tho remainder of tho $0,512.57. will bo dis
tributed to tho officers nnd men In proportion
to the ray they receive Lieutenant-Commander
V. U. Driggs, as excoutivo offlcer of
the St. Paul, will reooivo botween $150 and
$200. There are twenty-two officers and about
520 men nnd potty officers in the erew, and the
individual amounts will run from $2 up to
$100. The nudltor for the Navy Department
has boen overwhelmed with communications
concerning tho distribution of prize money,
but tho law is such that nothing can.be done to
hasten the delivery of the awards The Treas
ury Dooartmont does not dopend on Congress
tn appropriate tho monoy, but waits until the
Prize Commission has completed Its work and
turned the necossary monoy over to the Gov
ernment. Even then complications arise .that
may oauso delay. In tho case of the Ros
'ormal, it may bo threo months bofore the pay
ments are complotod. Homo officers were pro
moted while at sea. but their commissions
wore not recolved until after the capture, and
the Attorney-General has been naked to decide
at what rank their sharo shall be apportioned.

says, represents God, others nncols. Soma
aro mado of wood peculiarly carved, while
others aro of plaster Paris, with varicolored
class balls Imbrinc out of them to represent

, llcforo these nt reaular Intervals Klemmor
bows and worships. Ho declared to tho po

and he wanted thorn to cntoh thy thieves and
restore them lo him. T'iq bulldlnir contained
several hundred Inuias, all made by Klommer.
He is a flrit.class mason. It la not thought that
tho Idols wore stolon, but thnt Klemmor was
besomlns too zealous In worship and they wero
romovednn that account by some of his friends.
