Law- Denies Them Right to Issue Re
funding School Bonds
In an opinion given by P. A. Ewart,
assistant attorney general, at the re-
quest of the state superintendent of
public instruction, it is held that
boards of education of Independent
school districts have no authority to
issue refunding school bonds. The
opinion was given to determine the
right of the school board of Adrian,
Nobles county, to issue bonds in re
fundment of a bond issue now due.
The attorney general's office holds
that the law of 1893 as amended by
subsequent enactments is defective in
that while it was intended as general
legislation to cover all school districts,
it confines the refunding privilege to
trustees, and trustees are applicable
only to common school districts, the
authorities of independent districts be
ing'designated as boards of education.
No provision for refunding functions
is made for boards of education, and
hence the attorney general holds that
Adrian and other independent school
districts cannot refund under the law.
The issue must be met by a special
election. It is said that the defect in
the law will be remedied at the next
session of the legislature.

I TROOPS OF THE TWENTY-FIRST
WAITING FOR MARCHING ORDERS
Rumored at Fort Snelling That
Col. Williams and His (Men
Must Soon Leave Minnesota
Post — Regiment, According
to Gossip, Is to Go Into Can
tonments at the Presidio,
San Francisco, and Later Sail
for the Philippines
It is rumored at Fort Snelling that
the Twenty-first infantry, two battal
ions of which now constitute the larger
part of the garrison, must soon leave
Minnesota on its way to the Philip
pines. So far as details are provided
by the gossips, the regiment is to start
from Minnesota this fall and go into
cantonments at the Presidio, San
Francisco. About next March it is to
return to the Philippines for a tour of
two or three years in the islands.
At Washington last night Gen. Ains
worth, the military secretary of the
war department, informed The
Globe correspondent that the Nine
teenth and Twenty-first regiments of
infantry would be the next to be or
dered to the Philippines. The Twenty
first, however, would not go before next
"I shouldn't be surprised if the re
port had a basis of fact." said an offi
cer at the fort last night, "though I've
heard nothing but talk on the subject.
We were expecting to leave within a
year, and we have been in the States
more than two years already.
"It's been proposed that a definite
term of foreign service be established
in the army; that we spend two years
in the Philippines and then four years
at home. But the plan has never been
carried out. In fact, some other regi
ments, notably the Seventeenth infan
try, had to go back to the islands after
remaining here less than two years.
The Seventeenth was at home only
eighteen months. If we don't leave
San Francisco until next spring we
shall consider ourselves lucky.
"There are eight companies of the
Twenty-first here, two at Fort Lin -
coin, N. D., and two at Fort Keogh,
Mont. All the invalids that came back
from the Philippines have recovered or
left the service, and not more than
15 per cent of the enlisted men have
seen any service in the islands. The
men have now had two years' target
practice and are all well trained. The
only pity is that the enlistments of
so many competent soldiers will ex
pire next year, before we start back."
History of Twenty-first
"When first organized, in May, 1861.
the Twenty-first infantry was the Sec
ond battalion of the Thirteenth in
fantry. After the Civil war, however,
in September, 1866, that battalion was
designated the Twenty-first infantry.
The same year the regiment saw
service against Indians in Arizona and
New Mexico, and was transferred in
the early '70s to Oregon and Washing
ton. It followed Gen. Howard in th<?
Nez Perces outbreak of 1877, and
Gen. Miles in the Bannock troubles of
1878. The Twenty-first foughf against
the southern Cheyennes in 1885. It
participated in the campaign against
Sitting Bull's Sioux during 1890 and
1891 in Nebraska and South Dakota.
The next year several companies
went East, and in 1894 the whole regi
ment was concentrated at Plattsburgh
Barracks, N. V., on the shores of Lake
Champlain. During two seasons that
President McKinley and his family
spent the summer at the Hotel Cham
plain the Twenty-first became much
attached to the president. It received
from Gen. Algev a flag which was
practically a gift from the ladies of
McKinley's cabinet. The same flag ex
cited much attention when it was tar
ried by the Twenty-first at Manila,
during the memorial services held
there after the president's death.
The Twenty-first took a brilliant role
In the campaign against Santiago.

THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, SUNDAY, JULY 10, 1904
COL. CHARLES A. WILLIAMS
Assembling in IS9B at Tampa, Fla., the
regiment sailed soon afterwards as
part of Gen. Shafter's army of inva
sion. None of the regulars performed
more effective service during the fight
ing of July 1, 2 and 3, 1898. The
Twenty-first won fame by singing
"The Star-Spangled Banner" while
they charged up the hill at the left of
San Juan. Lieut. Col. McKibben, of
the Twenty-first, was promoted .to be
brigadier general for his special gal
lantry in the engagement of July 1.
Brought home to recuperate at Mon
tauk Point, in August, 1898, the regi
ment returned to its old station at
Pittsburgh, and in the fall of the
same year was transferred to the Phil
Repeats Fighting Record
There it repeated its heroic record.
Fighting month after month under
Gens. Lawton, Wheaton and Summer,
the Twenty-first finally joined the
forces under Gen. Bell in Batangas
province, Luzon. It was at a camp of
the Twenty-first that Gen. Malvar sur
rendered, this event marking the close
of active operations on the part of the
No regiment lost so many officers as
did the Twenty-first in the Philippines;
few had so many casualties among the
rank and file. In the roll of officers
killed were Capt. Wilhelm and Lieuts.
Spurgin, Mullay, Ramsay, Meade,
Crockett and Stockley. The deaths
from disease among the enlisted men
amounted to 139; the discharges on
account of disability, to 137.
During these trying years the Twen
ty-first was commanded by Col. Jacob
Kline. When he retired last April, he
was succeeded by Col. Charles A. Wil
liams, who he had served as lieutenant
and captain in the Twenty-first during
the twenty-five years from 1874 to
1899. . _

VISIT TWIN CITIES
(Members of the Island Com
mission Spend Day In St
Paul and Minneapolis
Three members of the Filipino com
mission were entertained in St. Paul
yesterday, two by Lieut. Col. Corne
lius Gardener, of the Twenty-first in
fantry, and the other by Dr. Rudolph
Gervasio Unson and Alfreda Cascro,
officials of the province of Tabayaous,
were Col. Gardener's guests. They
spent yesterday morning at Fort Snell
ing and were entertained at a luncheon
at the Commercial club at noon. In
the afternoon they were given an au
tomobile ride about the city and were
then taken to Minneapolis, where they
were entertained at the Commercial
club of that city.
M. De Iriarte, chief of the bureau of
archives, patents, copyrights and
trademarks, with headquarters at Ma
nila and a member of the Filipino
commission, was the guest of Dr.
Schiffmann. He will remain in St.
Paul a few days and will meet mem
bers of the Thirteenth Minnesota with
whom he became acquainted when that
regiment was in the islands.
Thankful for Change
"The feeling of hostility to the
United States which prevailed in the
Islands is now disappearing where our
people have learned the attitude of the
new government," said Mr. De Iriarte.
"At first the people thought that it
was but a change of masters, and they
feared that the Americans would be
no better than the Spaniards. Those
who have seen the developments of the
past few j-ears are now thankful that
the United States has assumed charge
of the islands.
"News spreads very slowly in the isl
and, however, and it will be a long
time before the 8.000,000 inhabitants
are made familiar with the new condi
tions. There are no newspapers in
the provinces, and intercourse is lim
ited. Some oT the inhabitants of the
Interior know nothing of the United
States except perhaps the appearance
of her soldiers, and while they have
respect for their fighting qualities, they
still regard them as intruders.
"My people take rapidly to the new
order Ttf things, and it will not be long
before they will be able to govern
themselves. The Filipino commission
has now visited many parts of this
country and we are impressed with the
conditions we find. We will make a
report of the result of our investiga
tions to the governor, and one of the
main recommendations we will make
win" be that all the people in islands
willingly submit to the new govern

Alexius Sullivan, coffee planter and
miner of Malagalpa, Nicaragua, is at
the Merchants hotel with his wife and
talks entertainingly of the conditions of
the Central American republic where
he has been a prosperous business man
for the past twelve years.
"The peon class constitutes the la

are far from being reliable," Sullivan
said yesterday. "Their wants are few
and easily supplied and the result is
that no dependence can be placed on

have the co-operation of the ruling
