San .\nlonio, Dec. 9. --ajor General
Funston, commanding the department
of the F'Oth, tonight replied to Ohe
1lev. .1. 9. GaibrelI, secretary of the
'xecu'ltive hoard of the 1l1ptist General
Convention, explaining the general':s 1
reason for not ermitting revivals in
the military cam, S here and along the
border. Nitnerous Blaptist conventions'
have adopited 'resolitions condemnintg
what they understood to have been the'
general', action, and suggestions were
m1ade that 'residetit Wilson, as com
mander in chief of the army, he asked
tol take offieial cognizanee of the mat
ter. A resoluittlo asking for informa
tion on Ile controversy also has been
introdneed in congress.
General Fniston gave out copies of
the letter to the press, in whlich lie
says i par t:
"'his whole disagreeableh incident
with all of its annoyaice to tile, of
course, arises from the statement
'on' Ie by you after your visit to Ile
h.aditu:rtr'iy a couple of months ago,
in wih you sought to obtain jiermis
slion to conduct a series of revivals in
the lierdei camps. You stated your
lotisitne-s to Col. Barnum, chief of
.staff. If Col. Barnum stated at. that
time what denomination you holong
ed to. it made no impression on my
mind and if he had, It would have
made no difference whatever.
"I told that oflicer to explain to
you fully that. while religious ser
vices along the usual lines were con
ducted in the camps by chaplains and
othe! clergymen and were welcome. I
e u)ld not give my consent to the
holding of revivals, therein giving
the word, as I was justified In doing,
its usually accepted meaning. I told
Colonel Barnum to explain to you
why revival cervices woud be out of
place in a military camp, citing the

"l'nder the circumstances yout can

do that the doctrine that sloluldl he

dlue court es~y I feel compelled to say
that your mnaking repegtedly the
sti'itemIent you are htloled as making

a grate injustice.
"'le only time the word 'lost' was
used( by me was when I said that I
(id not accept the view that because
a maht put on his country's uniform lie
was necessarily lost.
"I say frankly that I would not
want to take chances on allowing a
series of revivals or protracted meet

tied in giving the word revival Its usu

meetings continuing day and night
