Colnoel Young Restored to Duty-War Secretary
Lauds Negro Officers-Division of 30,000 Being
In response to a letter from Dean
Kelly Miller of Howard University,
Secretary Baker issued a statement.
July 7, to the effect that Col. Young
has been restored to active duty.
Dean Miller's letter to the secretary
transmitted the complaint of Attor
ney Charles S. Gordon of Los Angeles,
which represented the possibility of
injustice being done Col. Young at
the present time. The correspon
My Dear Prof. Miller:
Through you to the studeflts of
Howard I desire to extend my con
gratulations on their success in pro
curing the training camp for Negro
officers at Des Moines. Considering
all the circumstances and conditions
existing in our country today, it
certainly was a great victory of the
students of Howard for our race.
Since they have done so well in that
matter, I am inclined to invoice their
aid in an effort originating with me,
tor a greater victory along the same
You perhaps have already heard
that Captain Davis, of the Ninth
Cavalry, has been sent to the Philli
pines with his Cavalry in spite of his
request for permission to remain and
render service with the colored sol
diers in France. You perhaps also
know that Lieut. Col. Young has been
ordered to Presidio, our army hos
pital, or medical observation and
Col. Young is, according to my in
vestigation, enjoying the very besi
treatment, in spite of the fact that
health of his life. There seems to be
a disposition on the part of the ad
ministration to either isolate our
regular commissioned army officers,
or put them on the retired list, and it
would be contrary to the time honor
ed custom and precedent of the War
Department, to order commissioned
officers into the army hospital, and
then permit them co come out of that
hospital, except on the retired list.
It is the opinion of men well informed
on the subject, in this locality, that
Col. Young will be retired by the
government for the purpose of pre
venting his further advancement in
the army, and his actual partlcipa-
; tion in the present war.
You remember that the only three
commissioned officers in the regular
army, aside from the army chaplain
are Col. Young, Capt. Davis, now en
route to the Philippines, 'and Capt.
Green, stationed at Liberia, all of
whom ought to be considered in the
organization of the separate division
of the 30,000 colored troops now be
ing organized. But it now appears
that neither of these officers will, in
' any way, be connected or associated
with that division. It would certain
ly be as cowardly an act on our part
to sit idly by and submit, without
protest, to the retirement of Young,
as it will be on the part of the War
Department, through its Army hos
pital, which brings it about. I am
also informed that an Ohio senator
protested vigorously against the de
partment's order of Davis to the
Philippines, but of course, without
avail. Isn't there some method which
can be pursued In behalf of our col
ored commissioned officers which
would not embarrass them on on the
records of the war department?
CHARLES S. DARDEN.
In transmitting this letter Prof
The Secretary of War, Washington,
My Dear Sir: I beg leave to sub
mit the enclosed complaint against
the War Department. I am indis'
posed to believe that any department
of the government of the United
States would place a stumbling block
in the way of the patriotism of the
humbles America citizen. I beg to
hope that the War Department,
through an authorized statement,
will set at rest all such suspicions as
are contained in the enclosed com
munication. July 6, 1917.
In response to Dean Miller's letter
on July 7, the War Department is
sued the following statement:
Dear Dean Miller:
I have received your note of July
6, and return herewith the complaint
which you enclosed. I am very hap
py to tell you that the work at Des
Moines Camp is progressing remark
ably well, and the reports I have from
it are very good. The spirit of the
men is fine, and apparently this en
campment is going to do a very great
deal of good, both to the country and
to the men involved.
Your correspondent write chiefly
concerning Lieut. Col. Young, a col
ored officer of the regular army and
a graduate of West Point, and a man
with a fine record for Bervice in the
army. Some time ago a board of ot-.
fleers passed upon his health and
. found him completely Incapacitated
for service; not obviously and visibly,
but because, unfortunated, of their
finding that he was afflicted with a
. chronic disease. My recollection is
that it was Bright's disease. The
report of the board was approved by
the surgeon general, but in view of
the fact that Col. Young's record
is a long and honorable one, and the
government needs officers of his rank
and ability, it was directed that an
other board be convened to re-examine
the question so as to make quite
sure that there could not be any error
in the matter. I have directed that
the report of the Board be returned
to me personally before being acted
upon, not because I find myself able
to believe that any prejudice would
produce the deep dishonor of a false
report: but because I want to be able
to give the assurance to all who in
quire that I have given my own per
sonal thought and attention to this
case, in which so many are interest
I hope the board will find Col
Young still able to perform active
duty. In the meantime, I have di
rected that he be restored to active
duty, and have at least the hope of
being able to have his assistance for

One of the most touching incidents
connected iwith the funeral was the
pathetic solo sung by Miss Salene
McGavock of Nashville. The most
prominent white genelemen of Mur

church which had been reserved for
them. The Mayor, Ex-Mayor and
Judge were Included In this number,
each of whom made Interesting talks
on the life and character of Prof Wind

and esteem for him they seemed to
lose sight of color, and simply spoke
of him as a true Christian gentleman,
and as a loyal American citizen.
In short they left nothing unsaid
that would lift this noble man to the
highest pinnacle of esteem.
Hon. J. C. Napier, ex-Register of
U. S. Treasury made an interesting
talk iu regarus to the true friendship
that existed between him and Prof.
Windrow. He said the race had lost
a great man. A man who was not only
prominent in the business world mit
who took the lead In every move that
stood for the uplift of his people, so
cially, morally and intellectually.
The church was filled to Its greatef t
capacity. Every seat was taken and
even standing room was at a prem
ium. The floral offerings were numer

the most prominent white families of
Murfreesboro. 'Many out of town peo

from Nashville were Hen. and Mrs.
