Claim conference, which continued its
sessions 'here today. He said it was
the punpose to educate the onIployes

handling of freight and prevent the
large claims.
"It is mlich to the advantage of the
shipper and general -public that the
loss and damage be reduced as it is
to the transportation companies-for
in its analysis the shipper and public
pay for it," he stated.

Lieut. Leland Bolt Tells of Some Ex.
periences as a Soldier In the Phil.
lipine Islands.
Giving some of his observations on
life in the Phillipine Islands, 'Lieut.
Leland Bolt. .,who has been stationed
there for the past year or so, has writ
ten the letter below to his father, Mr.
L. S. B olt, of this city, .paragraiphs of
a personal nature being stricken out.
Since writing this letter Lieut. Bolt
has been transferred at his own re
quest to service in China. The letter
Ft. McKinley, P. I.,
September 22, 1922.
Dear Papa:
I have a few mnioments to spare so Il
write you a few. lines this morning.
For the past week typhoons have been
raging around Manila and it has been
raining quite often. Our beautiful
weather has given .way to wind and
rain. The rain was needed very badly
though, for the rice 'had begun to suf
fer quite a bit, especially on the up
lands. I know you would be interest
ed to see these natives plant and cul
tivate their crops. They use the old
Caribao for all their work. It is a
kind of water animal very large and
powerful. The natives get out in the
fields In water no1 to their knees and
work all day. 'Phey remind me of old
Silas cleaning out a ditch In the bot
toms, except they probably do a little
more work than he did. gPerhaps the
hardest part is transplanting the rice.
It is irst planted in a patch like wheat
then reset in rows about six or eight
Inches in a checker formation. After
being reset all that is necessary is
plenty of -water. This land over here is
just as rich as it can be and would be
worth a fortune in the States, but dur
ing the dry season it is hard as a
brick. There are a few truck farms
scattered around where they can be
irrigated; othemlvise nothing in the
form of vegetables could be grown dur
ing the dry season.
For the past week we have been
quite busy getting everything ready to
transfer our men to Corregidor, the
Artillery station holding the entrance
to Manila bay, said to be one of the
strongest fortified stations in the
world. They are reducing the number
of white troops over here and substi
tuting 'Phillipinos for them. Also that
dark cloud at Camp Stotsenberg, the
Nnth Cavalry, consisting of negroes
and some of them the blackest you ever
saw, due to the tropical sun plus their
original color, are being spnt back on
the next transport. I don't think thb
natives will make very good cavalry
men for most of them do not like our
horses. The native horses are very
small, just little ponies, and they are
afraid of large ones.
There are quite a few of the negroes
married to the natives and they don't
want to carry them to the states so
they want to be discharged over here
The white people 'here do not favor
this ddea, as it is very hard for a ne.
gro to compete with the native labor
and the negroes can't live on rice likc
these natives, so it would -be only
matter of time 'till they would have ti
be provided for in some 'way. ,As Ionj
as tFhey are -in the army they get .plen
ty to eat, !but anyone stranded ove:
here .without a good job is rather .eare
up unless he can 'l-ive on rice. Semi
of the negroes who came over in 'thi
early days were discharged here an<
are .doing well. One runs a restauran
wvhich is quite wel-l known as Toni'
Dixie Kitchen. Another has quite 1
roputaible shoe shop, namely Casey'i
Hospital for SIck EThees.
