'"loriel BMM r ha? b<->'!i In Washington
MM time endeavoring to have hla regi

?Itsd that he desired to have only two
lHuBMM retained, and that this was not
includa the three BSOOttd Regiment
?mpanles from Richmond, but this was
eedily contradicted, and the news re
:??-<l last night shows that he has. BOOB
??rking with a different object in vl.-w,
id that he has v.. rfeOd to some purpose.
The great question now la, Will 7.r?0 men
' tho regiment vote to stay In ?orvicc'/
pinion is divided. An officer of the
filment said to a Dispatch reporter last
ght that he could not express an lntclll
eut opinion as to the entire command,
ut that so far as his company was con
rned he believed that fully the necea
ity proportion was ready to volunteer
remain in the service and to go any
"Probably three or four of my men
ould bt: foolish to atay in the service,"
.? said. "They have others dependent
pon them or are men who can make, far
, ". than tho ?alary they woiili receive
i the army. Such m? n ought not to think
i' i maining In the service, and I shall
?vise them not to do so. Rut there 1?
o disguising the lad that the gr?at ma
'fity, practically all of th'in, will do
ir better to remain In the ?>en,i'-e than
D ?fay at home. They only get RS40 a
lonth, it is true, but you must rem.-m
r that in addition t?> this they receive
?>ard, clothing, and lodging, so thai at
he end of the month <:v?'ry man. if he
haves himself, has in his pocket Ra.88.
s'.-iw I know, and you know, that few
iborers have that much after #11 bills
,r- paid at the, end of the month.
"I ?aw after being home with my men
. few days," he continued, "that there
vas a great change in aentiment among
hem regarding continuing in tho er ?loe,
ial 1 have every reason to believe that a
oiisidernble majority now wish lo do so.
rii.y have also com?? to understand that
I'-ing police duty in Cuba Is highly h.m
?talilc. and that it does not mean they
UTS to he all th?? time engage! in dlg
ing ditches and acting as city scaven
;ers."
it is Imposaible to correctly gauge the
intiment of the ngiment, but if it is
tapt in the service the people will feel
ISBursd that Virginia never had a flnei

the question of the Philippines, have rn.t
as y.-t taken up that subject for eon*
Btderatlotta The loinmlaMon. whenever
meeting Jointly, ha? been engaged entirely
with three glieetlonn to UM complete,
exclusion of the Philippinen These ..nata
tions related entirely to Cuba. Porto Rico,
and Guam, and according to tho very
latest reports trom th?? American com
missioners to Washington, they are still
under consideration.
The Batted States will not nasttrse the
lndebtednes-s of either Island as the re
sult of the cession or release of Cuba or
Porto Rico. It was fully expocted by thu
authorities that the Spanish contingent
of the l'.-ace Commission would make a
strong effort to make the assumption of
the heavy financial obligations of ti,.
Islands a condition of the cession of
PUrtO Rico and the abandonment of sov
ereignty over Cuba, but the American
commissioners were fully Instructed on
these point?, and the general tenor of
these Instruction*, were that such obiig.t
tlona were not to be assumed by the
L'niU-d States.
No dissatisfaction is felt here at the
progress of the commission in the Bet

ERA HAM TESTIIii:-'
Major-Oeneral William M Brahauj was
the only witiii-sji before the oomnBssMn
He was fourth in commend al
Camp Alger at th? beginning of the war,
ami detailed the conditions which pre
vail?-.1 at that 'ami.. There was only
?m?- railroad running mto the aaaap, and
.. il.ieit i il' I.l.a allai li half
rj l.i No running Stream was n?-ar l?y.
bul Iberi were many line springs, and
brooks formed by the spring?. Re thought
the water supply was BUfltcUnt wh ?n
the .amp numbered ao muro than
Bve regiments of troops, but a? Hi?- troops
m? reas? d it b? i im? nee?? " > to .pg
vs.Us. There wa deMy in digging the
the well?.. The supply was BSBpM tat all
tiny arare ?unk. except
Ing. The wells w.-i?- well caned, and
was no surfac pollutl'in of them.
Before the well?, were, sunk, Oeneral Ui ?
ham ?aid, there ?a.? undoubtedly some in?
convenience "i? account of the neeesMty
of going a long distance for water. It
was also his impression that th.-re had
be?*n BOSBS eompMInf of .sickness on ac
count Of the water famine, which Iii4
continued from the 20th of May until the
Eta. "f June, with varying di'gree? of in
tensltv.
hater N??T RESrORSIBUL.
General Orahani ?Bd not oattawo that the
spring and well water had b?*en respon?!
b!e for the slcknest at Camp Alger, but
was Incline?! to attribute much of the
trouble to tbe fscl that the soldiers
upon taking water from the Httle
running through the camps.
There had been considerable typhoid?
fever at the camp, but it did not origi
nate there, ail the first case? were
Isolstsd. During the entire stay at tho
ramp less than 4 not cent, of the com
mand was sick. Th?re were sixty-nine
.bath?, fUe being those of officers. Much
of the sickn??** wa? in his opinion due to
delicadas s?st to the >ol.!ler? from home.
Wben the typhoid fever began to be
consMered an epidemic he ls?u?d ?trie*
orders for the detailing of guards for tho
tare ?t sinks making any neglct ..a

; r caution? wer? taken to protect the
