WASHINGTON, Sept. 7.— Secretary
Alger is now putting his affairs ln
Shape to admit of his absence from
Washington on a tour of inspection of
tho army camps throughout the coun
try. H_ will leave tomorrow evening,
going first to Camp Meade, Pa., ana
thence to Detroit. Now that the activ.
war operations have closed the secre
tary feels free to express certain views
entertained by the president and him
self respecting the plans of the treat
ment of the soldiers and touching tn.
persons upon whom responsibilities
should be placed for some of the mat
ters complained of. In this connection
"The regiments that have been ordei
ed mustered out will be mustered out.
The regiments that have been desig
nated by the president to remain in the
service will have to remain. As soon
as we have mustered out 100,000, more
or less, we shall reorganize the army—
every brigade, division and corps, ana
put them into comfortable camps until
such of them as are needed are with
drawn for service in Cuba, Porto Rico
and the Philippines. In these camps
with experience of the past to guide"
us, sanitary conditions will be strictly
enforced. The men composing the army
will be treated as soldiers. They win
be shown every possible consideration
and their health will be preserved The
Officers commanding regiments ' ana
companies will be held strictly account
able for the sanitary conditions of the
camps. They are the ones who should
•be h ,d resr >onslble. During the war
many of these officers disregarded the
specific instructions that had been giv
en looking to the proper care of their
men. Now it is time for them to take
this work upon themselves and with
the knowledge that they are to remain
in service they will be expected to de
vote their 1.-st energies to the work.
Where men are Incompetent to dis
charge these duties thpy must give way
to competent men, for again I wish To
make it clear that these company and
regimental officers are to be held To
account for the welfare of their men.
FEEDING THE ARMY.
"Now a word as to the feeding of the
troops. The army ration is all that ta
necessary for a soldier. I hope the.,
will be less food given to men from
outside sources. The dainties gratify
the taste of the men. but they are of
no real help and only tend to breed dis
satisfaction where they do not actually
destroy the health of the men Tn.
army ration today, as it has been, ana
-The principal difficulty we have had
to contend with 1s the recklessness of
youth. In the vigor of sound health
the young men who went to make un
our army could not be induced to take
proper care of themselves. They think
that nothing can harm them; that they
ca.n violate any and all laws of health
"W he n a regiment is designated to be
mustered out no further appeals will
be allowed to influence the department
to change its programme. That order
is going to be strictly observed until
the president decides that he can
make a further reduction in the army
When such reduction is made there
will be no discrimination in releasing
the troops. It is not possible to main
tain the exact ratio, because to do so
*ould be to divide regiments, but the
p urpose will be to treat all states fari
ly and aa nearly alike as possible.
"The great complaint of the soldiers
Is homesickness, and a great deal of
this has been caused by the inconsid
erate publications in the sensational
newspapers. Some of it is also charge
able to the fact that the men entered
the army with the expectation that
their services would be very short. Ev
ery experienced officer knows that a
great many men died of homesickness.
Following the depression that ensues
upon homesickness come other mal
adies, to which the homesick soldier
falls an easy victim, and it is impos
sible to check their course. Now to
my mind the American people should
try to brace up these men; to encour
age them and cause them to remember
that they are soldiers and are expect
ed to meet a soldier's duties. The peo
ple of this country should not be given
the impression that they have sent into
the army a lot of boys unfit to with
stand the unavoidable vicissitudes of
camp life. Some of the complaints that
have been published are calculated to
make the American army appear in a
poor light to the eyes of the American
people and also to those of the nations
of the world."
The secretary gave an earnest as
surance of his purpose to carry out
strictly the deoision he had announced
to hold field officers responsible for
the condition of their man ln the case
of Private Hugh Parrott, who was re
ported to have perished in his tent at
Montauk, lacking medical attendance
This was the case to which Repre
sentative Grosvenor had directed the
attention of the war department. The
Becretary several days ago called upon
the commanding officer at Camp Wikoff
for a report on the subject, and today
he sent a peremptory order to Gen.
Shafter to create a court of inquiry to
investigate the case, or, if the facts
warranted it, to shorten the proceed
ings by ordering a court martial at
once for the officer responsible for Par
rott's lack of attention.

As the hearse with Its escort ap

meet Jt and formed the procession to
the grave. The firing squad, Corporal
Rogers, Privates Edwards, Scanlon,
Lund, Holton, Roberge, Green and
Kilpatrick. in command of Sergeant
Rose, marched at the head of the col

poral Cook. Then came the hearse
with the six pallbearers under Ser

son, Witherby, Paulson, Palmer and
Irwin, and after that a carriage in
which rode Mrs. Michael, mother of
the dead man, and two Red Cross wom

brought up the rear. They carried only
their side arms. The march to the
grave was ln slow time. Every effort
was directed towards making _he or

a strictly military way.
At the grave the company was drawn
up ln an easy manner, and Corporal

were fired over the grave, and as the

George Michael was but twenty-_ix
years old at the time of his death, and
he was a very popular fellow at home
and wih his company. His home was

There were a considerable number of
high temperatures picked up about
camp yesterday; in fact, about ten, but
probably few of the cases are typhoid.
Nearly all were included in the day's
exportation of Invalids, but it is prob
able that in many cases the high tem
perature was due to slight colds and
the tendency towards light fevers in
duced by the sudden change in the
weather. About nine of the seventeen
sent away had well marked typhoid
cases, the accumulation of three days.
In the morning George Eveland, Steveri
Stevens, William Pickett, George
Humphrey, Carl Hoven, William
Welch, Corporal Frank Irvine, Joseph
Dwyer, all of Company G, were taken
to St. Mary's hospital, Minneapolis,
and in the afternoon Adam Simpson,

mighty patriotism that had preserved
the men. If he was a recruiting officer
today, he would accept them all. In
the next war the boys of the Sixth
might have a chance. The present
war was petering out, not 'because of
any fighting, but because of weariness
on the part of the Spaniards.

TABLET IN THE CAPITOL
Fonrth Minnesota. Veterans Will
Substitute It for the Projected
The Fourth Minnesota held its an
nual reunion yesterday afternoon In
the court house. The veterans had the
court house almost to themselves.
They lounged about the corridors and
saw no one of whom they could ask
questions, and finally located in the
large court room on .he second floor.
The reunion was a purely business af
fair, and about all the veterans did
was to elect officers of the associa
tion for the coming year.
The committee to aid in the publi
cation of the second volume of Min
nesota's war record was continued in
service. There was a general sentiment
in favor of abandoning the project of
erecting a monument in memory of
the regiment's service at the battle of
Allatoona, and substituting the plac
ing of a tablet or the setting apart
of a memorial room in the new state
Several Interesting letters were read
from absent members, and the list of

by unanimous action. Gen. Sanborn
was elected president, and Capt. A. L.
Brown secretary and treasurer. The
only routine business was the report
of the committee on monument, which
was appointed at the last regular meet

adopted and the committee continued
for the coming year. In the adoption
of the report of the committee It was
understood that action would be taken
to commemorate the services of the
volunteers in the Indian and Civil wars.

BLOWN FROM A PIER
TWO MEN WERE KILLED AND
TEN OTHERS SERIOUSLY
THREE WORKMEN ARE MISSING
They "Were Carpenters nt Work on
the Roof of the Big Pier and Are
Supposed to Have Been Blown
Into the River and Drowned
Survivors Too Badly Frightened
to Assist Their Companions.
NBW YORK, Sept. 7.— The first gust
of wind that preceded the thunder
storm at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon
blew down the heavy iron superstruc
ture of new pier No. 60, at the foot
of West Twelfth street, killing two
men and injuring ten others. There
were ninety men at work on this iron
superstructure on the piers when it fell
ln on them.
The killed are: Samuel Patterson nnd
James Leonard, who died on way to hos
The wounded are: Charles Batwick, Jerry
Brown, J. Malone, Oscar Oslad.r, George Lil
ley, J. Callon. Michael Evson, George Conk
lin. Welter Latham.
Missing — Gaven Rutherford, Alexander
Ewanson, George Ramsey.
These ro©n are carpenters and were at
work on the roof. They are supposed to have
been blown into the river and drowned.
The new pier is 800 feet ling, and i_*
being erected by the Wilson Steam
ship company. It ls said to be the
largest and longest pier in the city.
The heavy iron beams and girders
were up, and the roof, which was also
of iron, was on. When the storm loom
ed up from the southwest a tremen
dous blast of wind rushed In under the
Iron superstructure and fairly lifting
it from the pier allowed it to drop
again in a mass of twisted and gar
bled debris, burying the men under It.
During the lull that ensued between
the first roar and the storm pitiful
cries and moans could be heard. The
uninjured men hurried off the pier and
huddled together ln the timekeeper's
shed, leaving their fellow workmen
crying for help under the twisted mass
of iron, all of them too badly fright
ened to assist in rescuing the injured
men. An alarm soon brought out two
companies of firemen, who went to
work to rescue those under the de-brls.

Conrt Honse Hospital Project Aban
doned by Minneapolitans.
The Minneapolis Red Cross peoplo have
taken the hint that was given them by The
Globe last Monday morning and, after an
lncftiiry into the unhealthful record of the
old court house in Minneapolis, have decided
not to use it for a soldiers' hospital.
This step has cost some pangs to the Min
neapolis papers, which thought they hnd
found something which would enable them
to c.aim some meed of glory in the sugges
tion, but aside from that the action ls gener
ally considered well advised.
