Headquarters Company A, Camp
LlXCOLJf, fcfPBINGFIELD. Aug. 13. All
the first day 10 Camp Lincoln was spent
in cleaning and arranging the tents for
the week. There was no work done in
the way of drilling. AU the companies of
the Fifth and Sixth regiments, with the
exception of Company B. Fifth infantry,
of Taylorville. were in camp at 6 o'clock
p. m , and the absent company of the
Fifth and all those of the Fourth arrived
about 8 o'clock. At 6 o'cltck the call for
regimental dress parade was sounded.
Everything was bustle and confusion.
The order was givfen to appear on parade
in legging, and then there was a scramble
to find them. The Sixth was on the
ground first, and after goiog through a
few maneuvers their places were taken by
the Fifth, under the command of Lieut.
Col. Culver, with Company C on the ex
treme right. As the Fourth was not in
camp, this ended the dr-ss parade and the
companies returned to their teuts. Gen.
Barkley and staff were stationed on the
south of the parade grounds, irrtu which
position they viewed the parade. When
leaving the grounds, both Company U and
A, of this city, were cheered by members
of the Sixth for the pretty wheels they
made. They were kept on the grounds
for about 10 minutts after the parade
was dismissed and executed some very

Wednesday was the Rifles' day at the
range and all the new members of the
company acquitted themselves creditably
as did, of course, the older ones. In
order to qualify for a rifleman 100 points
must be made out of a possible 175, and
the following six members of Company A
qualified: Capt. W. T. Channon, Sgt.
James Johnson, Lieut. Hugh McDonald,
Corporal Thomas Lsary, Bugler R. McCoy
and Private W. T. McKean. Privates
O'Jseil and Giles are detailed for hos
pital duty, hut Company A has so far
been very fortunate as none of its mem
bers have yet been on the sick list.
There are over 3,000 men in camp.
The Rifles are color bearers for the
Sixth regiment which, by the way, had
the honor of being the governors' escort
on his yisit today. Governor Fifer was
accompanied by his staff . Gen. Reece
and the governor's staff were in full dress
uniform, but Gen. Barkley and staff ap
peared in fatigue drs. Gov. Fifer wore
a black suit, with Prince Albert coal and
slouch bat and was horseback. The re
view and dress parade were witnessed by
thousands of citizens, including large
numbers from Jacksonville, Decatur and
Headquarters Sixth Regiment.

A tjiovf rnmeat Prccantiaa la the lo
ttrestB of Sanitary Welfare A
The action of the Unite 1 States govern
ment in regard to inspection of beef and
pork seems to have been taken at a very
opportune time. Now that this sectioa
of the country has so many diseased cat
tle the Moline Dispatch properly suggests,
the people are beginning to realize the
meanirg of this inspection and the real
value of it.
The town of Ga'.eaburg has become
alarmed over the amount of sickness
caused by disease among cattle, and ha?
prohibited the sale of any beef not bear
ingthe guarantee of Uocle Sim as to i's
purity. The thoroughness of the United
States inspection law as now enforced
at the large packing houses of Chicago
and Kansas City is well known, each
animal being examined by veterinary
experts, both before and after kiliiag. The
city council there hs not yet found it
necessary to prohibit the sale of any but
inspected meats, but for the benefit of
those wishing to guard against germs cf
animal disease, it is announced that at
certain named markets consumers can
buy a full line of beef, pork aod saustges,
all of which bear the government seal and
certificates of inspection.
The idea is a most excellent one indeed,
but it would be a vain hope to expect any
such sanitary measure in R jck Inland.
The government would be enjoined the
moment it attempted to protect the peo
ple of Rock Island against impure meat,
just as the city of Rock Island was in its
most laudable endeavor a few years ago.
