• ''•■■^ The* dC.heej% Lustily
The Twenty-eighth infantry, con
sis.tinff of seasoned veterans of the
Philippine war, arrived at Fort Snelling
yesterday afternoon- and evening, and
immediately started to make itself at
home. Men who have camped in the*
muddy grounds of Luzon, and other
PPU-tP.i.n. the Philippines, found the
comfortable quarters at the fort to
their liking, and welcomed the change
from campaigning to the quiet life in a
garrison.
-Officerswho-have-Hved in the brown,
rough clothes of fighting men in the
field, and subsisted upon rations simi
lar to those doled out to enlisted men.
dug out their dress uniforms and
spangles, and prepared for a round of
enjoyment, which they rightfully con
sidered was theirs after their hard
(:ampaigir~sn the other side of the
.world.
Old army mules, hardened to the con
tinual strain .of . good natured abuse
from their drivers, pulled and tugged at
the straps which connected them to
loads of trunks and knapsacks. Driv
ers who had piloted teams through
nuid/ty .rouds, extending between tan
gled jungles in far off Luzon welcomed
the change which* gave them a hard,
well paved American pathway for their
labors.
The first section of the train which
bore the boys in blue arrived at Fort
Snelling over the new spur track in
front of the quartermaster's storehouse
shortly after S o'clock in the afternoon.
This section contained the commis
sioned and ndh-commissioned staff and
band, and was in command of Lieut.
Col. William L. Pitcher and Maj. Rob
ert L. Bullard. The officers and men were
all in good condition, although rather
tired after their four days' journey
from San FrancißCo.
Enjoy the Trip
With the stoical indifference with
which an American soldier regards
hardship, however, the men had enjoy
ed themselves on the way. Officers who
have seen many long trips, and had an
opportunity to judge of the various
characteristics of enlisted men, were
of the opinion that the present person
nel of the Twenty-eighth was as near
perfect as possible to reach, and that
the men were ideal travelers. Every
one made the most of tnff journey,
spending the time with the innocent
amusements which are introduced in'
sitfrna' gathering.
A mock court-martial while en route
was one of the features of the trip.
One private, charged with stealing a
can of bp.ms, was placed on trial be
fore a tribunal in which a company
cook figured as the judge. Two corpo
rals were appointed to defend him and
i a jury drawn. Everything was run
with strict regard to army justice, al
i though the defendant threw a scare
inio the camp of the prosecution when
'he declared that it was no offense for
a soldier to steal army beans, for it
' was doubtful if a genuine bean could
, be found in the can.
After the jury had been locked in a
toilet room for over half an hour
they brought back the unique verdict
of "Not guilty, but don't do It again."
Greeted All Along the Line
It took twelve passenger conches to
1 carry the first real section of the regi-.
. ment, • consisting , »of fourteen * officers
and 214 enlisted men. This section was
I well : greeted all along the line. Pec
ple realized that the past record of the
men more than entitled them .to con
sideration, and > turned out in a grati
; fying T -manner' to welcome the soldiers
who had risked life and. limb in the
performance of their duty,
i". Regular traveling rations . were serv
ed to the -men at various points .while
fen-route.. Three times a day hot-coffee
. was dispensed by caterers, with whom
!prior, arangements had been made. :
■ The, coffee always had to pass.the offi
■ cers' inspection, and nothing ; was al
lowed tto get by with the marks of
chicory. Uncle Sam demands the best
■ for his: soldiers when they are travel
ing, The men were served with all the
•coffee that they could drink and ■ were
' also : given sufficient; rations tto appease
the appetites of twice their number. '
, Arriving at Fort Snelling, the : regi
; ment greeted its • commander, the vet
eral : : Col. Owen J. Sweet, who 'has
been away on a leave of absence 1 for a
month. With hearty - cheers % the , men
showed their appreciation ; of > the officer
who has been a fighting man ever since

Sweet- enjoys '"the" unique distinction of

Commander of. the Twenty-eighth In

.
time without being given the opportu
nity for washing eren hands and face,
were loud in their praises oX the pleas
urable trip across the continent.
Delayed by Snow Storms
A delay of twelve hours was 1 en
countered in Nebraska, due to the
snow storms which have swept the
plains during the past few dare. Dur
ing the storms, and the intense cold
which accompanied them, however, the
soldierß suffered no discomforts, aside
from the delays, as the cars were ade
quately heated.
It was after 8 o'clock last night be
fore the second section pulled into the
fort, and the five companies which
comprised this section were immedi
ately taken to the barracks. Their
companions, who had arrived five hours
earlier, had everything in readineßS for
the newcomers, and the unloading of i
baggage and personal effects occupied
but a short time.
In command of the regiment at the
present time is no other than tbe fa
mous old bulldog of three wars, CoL
Owen J. Sweet, who enjoys the distinc
tion of being one of the few officers
who has served throughout wars since
before the Civil war, with never a de
tail in Washington or any of the other
vacations which fall to the lot of the
officer after a hard campaign. Not
since the Civil war has Col. Sweet seen
the national cupitol, so that an idea of
the service he has seen can be gleaned
from this fact.
Col. Sweet's Career
Col. Sweet was born in Connecticut
flfty-eight years ago, and at an early
age, after attending Union .college, en
listed in the One Hundred and Thirty
seventh New York infantry, being
soon commissioned as a second lieuten
ant He was immediately sent to the
front, and by good judgment and con
spicuous pnllantry, earned his spurs as
a soldier and an officer. Time and time
again he received the personal com
mendation of his superior officers for
some dare-devil feat of gallantry,
which, under the surface, always dis
played the cool reckoning of the nat
ural born soldier.
He was in Sherman's march to the sea.
It is of this fact that the veteran sol
dier is prouder than of any other part
of his record. The historic march
during which time the men were forced
in a great part to live on the sur
rounding country, which had itself
been devastated by four years of con
stant struggle, forms a vivid chapter
in the life of its sole surviving officer
in actual service. At the end of the
great march, when the confederates
made their last desperate stand in
front of Savannah. Col. Sweet was in
the front of the fighting: and was the
first officer out of the thousands engag
ed to enter the city.
In 1865. after winning a name, Col.
Sweet waa mustered out of the volun
teer service, with the rank of brevet
major, being especially mentioned by
jio less than five great generals, in
cluding Hooker, for gallant services
at Gettysburg and bloody Chancellors
ville. and for especially meritorious
service under Sherman.
Rejoins the Army
He was immediately returned to
army life, this time starting: again at
the bottom of the regular army serv
ice, as a second lieutenant of the For
tieth infantry. He started up the line,
being promoted for gallantry and good
judgment year after year, and seeing
service on the Mexican border, in the
far West against roving bHnds of In
dians and as far north as the Canadian
border. He fought the Indians In every
manner in which they are fought, and
time and time again campaigned to
long forced marches against red men.
In 1899 he waa sent to the' Phili
ppines as a major of the Twenty-third
infantry, and waa in command of the
Transport Ohio carrying 880 .men and
officers from San Francisco to Manila.
He occupied his time while there fight
ing the Moro and administering mili
tary rule and justice over Jotos and
Sulus. In 1901 he was again promoted,
this time to the rank of lieutenant
colonel and assigned to the Twenty
first infantry. Feb. IS, 19*3. he was
made a colonel, and placed in command
of the Twenty-etrhth regiment, which
position he occupies today.
Here Twice Before
This makes the third time that he
ha* been in St. Paul. In 18S8 Col.
Sweet was here on detached service,
and again in 1901. am lieutenant colo
nel of the Twenty-first.
Lieut. Col. Pitcher has been with the
Twenty-eighth regiment for the past
year, and has seen more than two
years of active service In the Philip
pines. Four years ago he was at Fort
Snelling with the Eighth infantry, so
is no stranger to the social side of St.
Paul.
One of his most conspicuous feats of
organization, for which he is famed,
occurred during the international trou
bles in China, when he was ordered to
organize a battalion for service against
the Boxers. With the acctiracy of m.
man who knows hfe work, he organized
the full four companies in just fifteen
days, an* in another week was or, his
way to San Francisco. In Japan, how
ever, he was switched to th* Philip
pines, and for the next two years saw
service there, following with two years
in Alaska.

CONFIRMS TITLE
IN THE OCCUPANT
Supreme Court Says 15 Years'
Adverse Possession of Private
Land Is Enough
In deciding the case of Theodore
Maas and L. L. Mathews. appellants,
vs. Andrew Burdetzke, respondent, the
-state supreme court yesterday handed
down nn important ruling. In effect
the court holds that a man who goes
on private k:nd in the belief that it is
a portion of the public domain and
open to homestead entry may obtain
title to the land by fifteen years* con
tinuous adverse possession in contra
vention to the rights of the real own< r
of the projtertj.
The case came up on appeal from
OJmsted county. Burdetzke went on
a tract of lhnd in that county and set
tU"j there, in the belief that the land,
was a part of the public domain and
1 sut>ct to homestead entry. He lived
en the lend for more than fifteen
yo.Trs, making the improvements con
templated by the homestead act.
Theodore Maas and L. L. Mathews,
cv.ners of the property, did not at-
tempt to assert their rights, but now
appear ard seek to dispossess the oc
cupant of the land. The supreme court
in the subjoined syllabus confirms the
title in the occupant:
Theodore Maas and L. L. Mathews. ap
pellants, vs. Andrew Burdetzke, re
spondent.
A person who takes possession of land
in the erroneous belief that it is public
land with the intention of holding and
claiming it under the federal homestead
law may acquire title thereto by adverse
possession as against the true owner.
Order affirmed. —Start, C. J.
Other Decisions
Other syllabi filed by the court yes
terday were:
Alraira Coohran. respondent, vs. James
K. Cochran, appellant.
In an action by the wife for a divorce
held:
1. Condoned cruelty will be revived by
subsequent misconduct of the guilty party
of such a nature as to create a reasonable
apprehension that the cruelty will be re"
peated. even if such misconduct be not in
itself sufficient to warrant a divorce.
2. The trial court did not err in deny

FOR CAPITOL PARK
Representative Hlckey Favors
Setting for Building J :;:
A new park in front of the state cap-
Itol, to be designed on the ground now
held ■ -.by. the city as . a park, ■ isi^th* 1
scheme which Representative. James
R. .Hickey has in mind and -which he
says he will attempt to ; pass through-:
the state legislature»in thei coming. ses
sion. " _| "* ■'. ". '. '"j
. "I: think that the ' grounds ■ adjacent
to the state capitol should be in keep
ing with the magnificent building it
self," said Mr. Hickey yesterday, "and
I will do my utmose to have them so.
The city can condemn buildings that
are in the . way : and also the present
Central park, and the state .take the
entire property, thus giving g ample
grounds for an .approach which ■ wtll
equal in some respects that of. the na
tional capitol at Washington. '.:■» . =.
"In. but few states in America can be
seen such a building as the great mar
ble palace on the hill. The grounds
surrounding the building are being
graded at present, and.when the spring
opens . will be a mass of lawn which
will set off the white building In a very
. artistic style.' But here the magnifi
cence ends. The Central | park, which
belongs to the city, is about half wide
enough. for , an ■ approach, and is - also a
miserable affair when, placed • In- com
parison with the building which it par
tially fronts."
