Washington, Aucf. 30. The fallowing
Ftatement rtgarding the medical corps
of the army and the American National
Ked Cross Society was given out by
Surgeon General Sternberg yesterday
"'Owing to the pressure of my ofllrlal
duties I have not heretofore fe'.t justi
fled in taking the time to make an ex
rlanaticn with reference to my attitude
towards the American National Itet;
Cros. It has teen repeatedly charged
in the newspapers that I am hostile to
this organization and have refused to
aucejit its assistance in the care of our
and wounded soldiers and sailors
and that as a result of thlsrefusal there
has been unriecpssary suffering. These
charges are without foundation, except
insofar as I haveobjected tothe sending
ot female nurses with trooi:s in the
field engaged in active operations. We
have a Ked Gros hospital corps In th3
army of enlisted men whose duty it is
to render first n'.d to the wounded upon
the field of liattle and to care for th
si k in our division field hospitals and
liava Lee ii of the opinion that femalo
nurt.es would lie an incumbrance to
troops during active operations; but so
Boon us serious sickness developed ia
our camps and It became necessary ta
treat typhoid fever cases In our Me!'?

of treined female nutes for the d. vision

pitals we have ernpli yed them from till
Their Service of Oreat Value.
The general testimony from the sur
geons in charge of these hosp tal3 has
been that their services have been of
great value. Very many of thesetraine J
nures have been obtained through the
kind assistance of the lied Cross so
ciety for maintenance of trained nurses
auxiliary No. 3 and desire to express
my hlKh appreciation of the valuable
services rendered to the medical de
partment of the army by this organiza
tion. My attitude towards relief or
ganizations Is shown by an. indorsement-
dated May 5 upon a letter ad
dressed by Itev. Henry C. Mi Couk, of
Philadelphia, to the president and
referred to me for remark: .
Ilest Not tn Olve Lxelusive "Privileges.
"May Z, lalls. Iicspectfully returned
to the adjutant general of the array
The plan proposed for the organization
of a relief association appears to have
been well considered and the object in
view will commend itself to every
patriotic citizen. Hut it is a questiot.
whether the president !iou!d give spe
cial privileges to any particular organ
ization. Other prominent individuals
In different parts of the country may be
organizing lor the same purpose. One
such proposition hat come from Chi
cago. While 1 approve in a general way
of organization for the relief work pro
posed, it appears to me that it will be
best not to give, in advance, exclusive
privileges to any one particular organ
ization. In case of need nssititar.ee
sl outt be accepted from any organiza
tion pre ared to give it.
lias Iteeu Hi Guiding Principle.
"This has been my guiding principle
throughout, that relief when needed
should be promptly accepted without
reference to the source from which it
conies. The relief afforded by the Na
tional Red Cross at Siboney was
promptly accepted by the furneons on
the spot, but it Is evident that it was
entirely Inadequate to meet th;? emer
gency. A committee of the American
National Red Cross association called
upon me in my office in Washington
some time in advance cf the landing of
our troops in Santiago, making an offer
of assistance. I received them most
courteously and advised them to use
their resources in lilting up a hnspital
fhlp, tellirg them that a hospital ship
was now being fitted up for the use of
the medical department, but that it was
not at all Improbable that an emergency
would arise which would overtax our
resources and that in such an event a
hospital ship pfrporly equipped, having
on lward a corps of doctors and nurses
would be a mest valuable auxiliary.

Declare the Ked Cross Ha Not Iteeu
Hampered in Any Way.
"Furthermore, the American National
Red Crcs association has had full au
thority to send agents and supplies to
all our camps since June 9, 1S9S, and
if there lias been suffering for -want of
needed supplies they must share th- re
sponsibility with the medical part
ment of the army for sue h suCealng.
The following letter was sent by m to
every t hief surgeon of a department cr
independent army in the field on June
"The secretary of war has approvivl
of the following proposition mcde by
the American National Red Cross'assa
ciation and the chief surgeons of army
corps and divisions will eo-epcrata wlta
the authorized agents of this associa
tion for the purposes indicated. Wecan
put any desired amount of hcrital
supplies ice, maltc-d milk, condensed
milk, etc. into any of thi volunteer
camps in a few hours. Will you be
kind enough to bring this Utter to the
attention of Secretary Alger and ask
him, If there Is any objection to our
appointing a Red Cross "representative
to report to the commanding officer and
the chief surgeons in every camp, con
fer with them as to their immediate
needs acd if anything of any kind is
wanting open the Red Cross station and
send In the supplies. We can do this,
not in a few weeks or a few days, but
in a few bours, and ran furnish any
quantity of any desired luxury or deli
cacy for hospital use. We hereby ten
der our aid and pet our organization
at the war department service for co
operatloa ia this field.'
"To show my cordial relations with
the National Red Cross relief commit
tee I venture to Quote from a letter of
Aug. II, received by me from Sir.
Cleveland H. Dodge, chairman of the
supply committee. Mr. Dodge , says
1 want again to assure you personally,
and on behalf of our committee, cf our
earnest J"re to assist you in every
possible way and to thank you for call

-In a recent letter from Mrs. Win

NEW RITUAL FOR" KNIGHTS.
Supreme Lodge Adopts One for the Uni
Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 20. The Su
preme Lodge Knights of Pythias was
In session all day in the State House.
It adopted the new ritual for the uni
formed rank in a modified form. To
day the election of two members of the
board of control of the endowment fund
takes place. The board of control elects
Its own president. The committee ap
pointed several elays ago to Investigate
the charges of extravagance made
against the supreme lodge officers and
to secure if nr-cessary the name of the
informant of a local paper, will report
today that there has been extrava
gaace, but no criminal misconduct. It
will also refort that it could nt secure
the name of recalcitrant representa
tives. Further theommittee will rec
ommentl a commis;' n to have super
vision over the award of contracts for
printing and supplies.
The committee on the state of the
order reported that the reports of the
supreme cfiicers heretofore submitted
wore vpry significant and very suggest
ive. The ways end means committee
docided to recommend a per capita tax
of six cents for the support of the su
preme Iod;;e which with J9.0C0 estimated
rncome from the sale of supplies and
$7, ECO income from the supreme repre
sentative tax of SjO each against grand
lodges, will give an income of about
K-0,CGO a year. The supreme lodge de-
c'ded to borrow JJ5.0C0 for the expenses
of the supreme lodge as there is now-
only J.9,000 in the treasury. The su
preme tribunal concluded its work and
adjov.rned after having settled several
appeal ca?es. John II. Alexander of
Leesburg, Va., was re-elected supreme
tribune for five years. Wm. Boynton
Gale, of lloston, succeeded George Ji.
Seay on the tribunal. W. D. Kennedy
was re-elec ted supreme recorder.
