James C. Summers, who was officer of the

"The sale in wlilch the Terctt was lost
ljcBun with a fierce Fquali five minutes be
fore 1 o'clock on the morning of November
3. Wind und sea rose at 1 o'clock. From
tho Teresa's bridgo came the wig-wag ic
nal Jy lamp: 'Signal Merrltt to eteer to
windward.' The Mcrritt at onco chanr'd
her course to north-northeast. It had been
north. To us. the fact that the Teresa
mut be kept head to sea was in itself cor
ldered ominous. All signals were made to
i.n by wig-wag flag from the Teresa. We
repeated them to the Mcrritt or Leonidas.
"At noon tho gale had increased in vio
Icncc. and all three vessels labored heavily
in tho sea. The Teresa, plunging deeply,
took much on board over the bows, and
often when reeling she shipped seas aml-1-fchlps.
Her starboard engine only was be
ing used. It was turning thlrtj-eight rev
olutions when last reported. The forward
wrecking pump was sending out a lare
ttrcam over the port bow.
"At ten minutes past noon, the Leonidas,
then fully a mile ahead, was signaled,
'Do not go so far ahead.' Thirty minutes
later the Teresa signaled, 'Can Merrltt-n-n
to Watling'a island safely?' The Merntt
enswtred '.W promptly. This was the fim
intimation of the real danger at hand.
"Almost simultaneously with the Mer
rill's next signal: 'Give jour orders,' cam
this from the Teresa, 'Tell Merritt to cast
off and come within hall.' This wa3 done
and h'r crew hauled in the 100 fathoms
of "hawser while on the way to as"ist the
Teresa. T'-e latter then signaled, 'We
shall abandon d.ip. Tell Leonidas stand
ly us to windward. Do not cast oft our
lines.' The Vulcan answered, 'We will hold
on until the last, and use oil. to which
the Teresa replied, 'Many thanks.'
"The Vulcan's commander, Lleutena-t
George F. Blow, immediately planned the
Vulean's part in the scheme of rescue. Ue

Dr. Milo B Ward, of Kansas City. -Mo ,
who was a brigade surgeon at Camp
Tl omas from Julv 1J to September in, was
one of to-daj'-- wltncstes. When asked as
to the condition of the ho-pltal-, he said
that there was a great lick of mediunes,
only some of the vtrv simplest medicines
leing on ll.incl. "The fooei which was fur
nished the men," saij he, "I would not
want to give to m pet dog" He sild that
the food would hivo been all right had it
been properl cooked, but In the -li ipe in
which it was brought to the men, it was
enough to make them sick..
The eloctor was then ciuestloned as to
the lack of attention shown patients iust
coming down with disease. The doctor
stated that he knev of sveral cases whore
the patient was allowed to He out on the
ground the whole djy, and also during the
night, before taken to the ho-pital. The
doctor was questioneel as to what his
hours of dulv were suppo-ed to be. His
rep! was from S a. m. until S p. m In this
waj. the patients w,cre without medical at
tendance during the night.
"Is it possible that better care could have
been secureel If night calls had been made?"
"Xo, sir. There was nothing to see them
fo", except to give them medicine."
S"ventj-hve per cent of the patients were
on cots, and the other 2.1 per cent were en
stretchers on the ground, four to six inches
from the ground. Sometimes some of the
men were put on the bare ground, but
within a few hours the were always put
on cots or stretchers.
Dr. Connor "Did jou ever see a man on
tho bare ground, propped up agaln-t a
tree, in a dvlng condition, who died within
two or three hours after he was put there"
Dr. Ward "I never saw such a thing, bat
often heard of It. I don't believe It ever
Dr. Connor "What was the reason that
tho Second division hospital of the Third
army corps had, as it certainly did have,
the worst reputation of any hospital dur
ing the war?"
Dr. Ward "The first reason, in my judg
ment, is thit the hospital had for its
corps surgeon a man who never paid in
attention to it whatever. His name was
Hoff. The next reason Is that the man in
charge of the hospital, the division surgeon,
very seldom visited the hospital or paid any
attention to It. His name was Jenney. Th
next reason is that there were not enougn
doctors at any time to take care of the
pitlents without overworking the doctors
and making them too ill to get out of bed.
For the tirst two weeks that I was there
there was not a. man on duty who was
phy-leallj lit for dutj.
"The nct reason is that the nurses were
never competent, in any sense of the word,
but they did the best they could when vou
consider their ignorances. Some of them
could not even read. They were forced to
do this work under protest, and, of course,
did only what they were obliged to do One
day I visited the Uphold fever ward and
found all the men spitting on the ground. I
said to the man In charge that I would
have them all arrested If they did not pro
vide some paper or something on the
ground for them to spit on But the next
da things were Just .is bad as ever.
"Hoff had no respect for Individuals. It
made no difference what: an Individual
wanted, he was only one out of thousands.
Once when I was phjsicali exhausted and
not able to do the work, he said, 'I don't
rare a damn for jou sir; jou are only one
man, ou are invaluable In the hospital and
I cannot spare jou ' But I told him I was
not able to continue work and must be re
lieved for tv o weeks.
"Jenney left everj thing with the men In
the hospitals. 1 know that the requisitions
mide for the goods and supplies were ap
proved by the doctors, but they were not
brought to the grounds because of the fault
of somebody els. I think It was the fault
of the doctors in charge of the hospitals,
the corps doctors, the division doctor, and
the doctor in Immeeilite charge of the hos
pital They made requisitions, but It is
necessary to do more than th it; a man hail
to get on a hore. take a sK shooter and
demand these necesary supplies from the
In reply to further questions. Dr. Ward
"Xecessitits were not available from the
army supplies, and had it not been for the
Bed Cross some of the soldiers would have
starved. Requisition after requisition was
forwarded and jet no relief came. The
nurses. a, a rule, were incompetent and in
different, though some were more faithful
th.in others. This was not remedied, be
cause we hid to obey army regulations as
to eltaillng men for nursing duty.
"Th" loeatien of the hospital was ex-trem-ly
bad, in mv judgment. It was a
very low place and the sinks were in a
filthy -ondltlon most of tho time. I w-m
to iv that that Is one of the causes of the
spread of tphold fever. And the water,
also, was never In condition so thit we felt
wee had safe drinking water, and there was
no provision for boiling it. There v.j
never a plate, sJUeer or dish boiled all the
timet I was tlier."
When ai-keil for his opinion as to the
responsibility for the eonelltions at Camn
Thoiius Dr Waiel said:
"Kor the-1 ondltion of the camp, first the
man who ln-istiil thit the eamp was per
fect anil thit the hospital was well run
That man was e;eneral ISovnton."
Dr. Connor 'Had General Bojnton any
thing to do with the eti irtermjster'b or
eeniini"snrv's de partment? '
Dr. Ward' I ean sav he was responsible
for keeping the arnij there- when that
aimj ought not to have b-t n kept there.
The w nit of supplies was due to the fact
that the eiuartermj'-ter's .mil eonimlssrirv's
elepartii'i nts w.re not lioundeel enough t.ir
supplies not followed up enough.'

tiein of the water, he s ild that when lie
