Two Famous Regi
ments Now in Camp.
If it is true that all the world loves a
lover, the place for the world to congre
gate and enjoy Itself yesterday was the
wharf where the big transport Sheriuan
docked and discharged its heroic cargo
of veterans, whom It has brought home
across thousands of miles of ocean from
the far-away land of fever and deau.,
where they have been for the last year
and a half, winning honor for their flag
and covering the two States that sent
them forth with the luster of their
When the transport drew Into the dock
the old dusty wharf looked like a fairy
flower garden filled with radiant Ameri
can beauties, so crowded was it with the
fair ones from Minnesota and South Da
kota who had traveled westward to greet
their heroes' return.
As soon as the vessel came within speak
ing distance femininity broke loose and
messages of love and welcome Hew thick
and fast, conveying in their passage the
hearts of the senders to the bronzed and
bearded men who hung over tlie ship's
sides as though they were afraid to lose
one weird of the tender welcome with
which they were fairly showered. It took
but a short time to make the transport
fast to her birth, and then the troops
were landed and formed along East street,
where they patiently awaited the arrival
of the escort that was to show them the
way to the home that had been prepared
for them In the Presidio.
The troops who were to act as escort
began to arrive shortly after the boys bad
ail gut ashore, and at 9 o'clock the pro
cession was ready to ttart on Its way up
Market street, where the public had been
waiting their arrival since early morn
ing. The advance consisted of Batteries
D, A, N and Light Battery O of the
Third United States Artillery. Then came
Troop C of the regular cavalry, which
was followed by the men from South
Dakota, under the command of Colonel
Frost. Behind the last rank of veterans
folluwed a number of carriages contain
ing Congressmen Gamble and Burke, a
number of invalided officers, with their
mothers, wives and sweethearts, and a
number of other carriages filled with rola
tlves, friends arid more mothers, wives
and sweethearts, whose heroes were not
The carriages of the Minnesota contln
g< nt followed, a-nd then the Minnesota
regiment Itself, under the command of
i>leutenant-Coionel Frederick, who rodo
in advance with his two Majors, iilau
and Bt-an, on either side of him. The
parade was closed by three eoinnanies of
the .North L>akuta Regiment, headed by
their band. The band tiiat led liic pro
cession was the one belonging to tho
All along the line of march the troops
were wildly cheered, and when the soiled,
stained and shot-riddled battle Hags went
past there was great enthusiasm. Women
pelted the troop.s with kisses and flowers
while they alternately laughed and cried
In a .sort uf a happy hysteria. They were
not the only ones who had tears in their
eyes, however. More than one of the
stronger and supposedly sterner sex v. is
seen to surreptitiously put a handker
chief to his eyes under the cover of wip
ing the moisture of excitement from his
The line of march was along East street
to Market, up ihal thoroughfare to Van
Ness avenue and thence to the Presidio.
At the corner of Van Ness avenue and
Bußh street the men from the wars v.. i<>
reviewed by Major Noble, acting fur Ma
jor General Shatter. Upon arriving at
the Presidio the men at once went into
camp, and alter being allowed a few
minutes' rest were pounced upon by their
fellow soldiers and carried off to be
breakfasted. The South Dakotas were
taken rare of and treated to their initial
meal by the North Dakota and Wyoming
regiments, and the Minnesota boys were
Looked after by the lads of our own city.
As soon as their stomachs were ap
peased the men started to work about
camp getting their tents in such order an
they could while welcoming the hosts of
rs who crowded their quarters and
overwhelmed them with Questions and
Though everything scorned pleasant and
happy, there Is in both organizations a
deal of internal trouble and 111 feeling, all
of which has been publi.-hed in the col
umns of this paper. Colonel Frost is at
outs with Lieutenant Colonel Stover and
a number of other officers, and his dis
pleasure has resulted in the placing under
arrest of his next in rank and also Major
Warne, surgeon of ihe regiment, and First
Lieutenant 11. C. Bates. This trouble in
the South Dakota regiment originated In
letters addressed by some of the enlisted
men to Senator Pettigrew, In which they
Bpoke of their colonel in a very uncom
plimentary manner and characterized Ma
jor Howard as a tyrant and an arrant
coward. The officers under arrest are
charged by their commanding ollieer with
having instigated these epistles, or at
least having lent the writers of them their
A visit was paid to the prisoners yester
day, but all attempts to induce them to
talk of their trouble proved unavailing.
They claimed that any discussion of tho
affair for publication would be unmilitary
and in very bad taste, and consequently
refused to submit to any interview on this
particular subject. It was easy to see,
however, that they have no love for their
commander, and the only sentiment they
feel toward Howard is one of contempt.
A little trip through the company streets
easily revealed the fact that the men to
a unit are with the arrested officers, and
particularly Is this a fact In the case of
Lieutenant Colonel Stover, whom they
Tho situation In the Minnesota camp Is
worse, If possible. Colonel Ames went out
to the Presidio yesterday morning and
assumed command of the regiment as
soon as it arrived. That is about all he
did assume as far as his officers were
concerned. They left him severely alone,
and he wandered around the little city of
tents, speaking only to civilians and to
the few officers who were compelled to
address him In the course of the perform
ance of their official duties. Both he and
his officers refused to discuss the trouble
In any way whatever. Not so with the
men and those of the other regiment.
Thrv do not seem to take the same view
of the case as do the officers of the regi
ment. They say that it Is a put-up job
to down Ames, and that there is many a
man who is now throwing mud at him
who had feet cold enough to freeze water
on August 13 when the regiment was or
dered to support the Astor Battery and
whdi the officers almost to a man laid
Wherever the blame may lie, all the
men and officers at the Presidio unite in
condemning the reception accorded Colo
nel Ames when he came aboard the trans
port. They say that whatever the feeling
that may exist between him and his offi
cers. It was both cowardly and unman
nerly for them to exhibit it before his
wife. They should have had enough chiv
alry, say these military critics, to have
Fpa'rod a woman the pain that such a re
ception must have caused the- wife of their
The South Dakotas are proud of thoir
record, and particularly of the number
that have been chosen from among them
to wear the shoulder straps in Uncle
Sam's new regiments. Those who have
received the honor and conferred distinc
tion on the regiment are Lieutenant J. Q.
A Braden, who was given a like rank In
the Thirty-sixth Infantry: Captain Hage

regiment; Sergeant Mann, given a sec

Lieutenant L. C. Foster, made captain in
the Thirty-seventh; Sergeant Russell,
made first lieutenant in the Thirty-sev

a captaincy In the Eleventh Cavalry, and
Lieutenant S. J. Larsen. who was given
the same rank In the same regiment.

invalided men, who were yesterday taken
to the Presidio hospital. There are four

BRAVE SOLDIERS AT
THE BANQUET BOARD
MRS. A. S. TOWNSEND ENTER
TAINS A FEW - EROES.
Flags and Silver and Crystal Flow
ers and Glittering Lights Make
the Table Beautiful.
Mrs. A. S. Townsend, the soldiers' true
friend, gave an elaborate dinner last even
ing al her home on California street. It
was a patriotic dinner, and the glorious
stars and stripes which many of the lady's
guests followed to victory were used with
exquisite effect to beautify the elegant
home and lend effect to the banquet board.
Exquisite crystal and gorgeous silver
glistened on the table, and in the midst of
it all were long-stemmed crimson carna
tions and delicate ferns arranged in deli
cate Venetian and old silver vases. The
mime cards were tiny tents topped with
miniature flags, 2nd tho boutonnicres
placed at the plate of each truest con
sisted of a single crimson carnation and
Bprig 01 maidenhair tied with a narrow
tri-colored ribbon. The 'conservatory open
ing off the dining room looked like a bit
of enchanted ground, with its little fairy
lights twinkling in the midst of the many
palms and rare exotics.
Mrs Townsend received her guests, as
sisted by Mrs. Bessie T. Smith and Miss
N. J. Rattigan. The charming hostess
wore an elegant gown of white brocade.
The jupe was perfectly plain cut, with a
demi-train. and the decollete corsage was
finished off with exquisite duchesse lace.
A magnificent collar of pearls and a dia
mond orcsa were the only ornaments
Seated at the table were: Colonel C. 11.
