The dispute between Col. (Jirard.
chief surgeon of the army corps, and
the regimental surgeons has been the
engrossing topic among the soldiers
at Camp Alger. Col. (iirard is deter
mined to establish division hospitals,
according to the army regulations.
This means that the regimental hos
pital must lie abolished. Of course
the regimental surgeons are opposing
the proposition, because if he suc
ceeds it may mean the reduction or
the discharge of a nuiultcr of the reg
imental surgeons and their assistants.
The conflict has become so bitter
that it has been brought to the espec

No Encroachment Beyond the Privilege
Prescribed In the Ordinance Will Be
Tolerated River Front East of Seven,

A report gained currency this
morning to the effect that the'Bridge
o: terminal companv proposed ex
tending its track tiii-in east of West
Seventeenth street and thereby ser
iously interfering with thecit v's levee
plans. A citizen w ho is interested in
the river commerce of the city and an
aid ermen lioth acknowledged that a
representative of the Terminal com
pany had indulged in the lKast that
the Terminal comjKinv pro)osed not
only to extend its rights to the mid
dle of Kast Seventeenth street, but
that the blue prints in accord
ance with the ' ordinances granted
it, extended that privilege. Realizing
that such an encroachment would for
ever destroy 'the boat 'Tanding at the
foot of the strert and ' make useless
the lnoiu-y already exended there by
me government lor iiariNir purposes,
the citizens referred to laid the mat

The city's executive was greatly
surprised at the representations and
stated that he would give the matter
his immediate attention. He accord
ingly went over tlra ground this after
noon and satisfied himself that the til I
in for which the Terminal company
has lieen riprapping should come no
further east than the west line of East
Seventeenth street, and that beyond
that point .Mayor Medill said lie would
sceinai ine levee rights were pro-
iccieti ami an uninterrupted approach

ther that he would make it a mint to
examine the blue prints of the Termi

plated any 'rights in conflict with Cue
