The forces in the field of the Union Army in
June, 1861, had grown, according to the historian,
to "gigantic proportions". The number given is
250,000 men. On the C onfederate side were 210,
000 men. The-Union .fleet consisted of sixty-nine
vessels. Compare these figures with today's war
statistics! In l'UH our forces have grown to
"gigantic proportions", but the words have new
meaning. W e now deal with millions instead of
hundreds of thousands. The casualties alone at
the close of the first vear of the war in Europe
were more than 2,(XX),0(X) men! j

Just as tin end of the first year of the war in
Europe saw despair and dejection in the heart of
the deiensive combatants, so did the first year of
the civil war bring little but gloom into the camps
of the Union forces. The Allies of 1M13 had, how

that the need was for men. men, and still more

of this demand the people of the North tapped
their foreheads and suggesteit.that Sherman be

afterward it was discovered that he was right in
that saying, as he has since been declared right in
a more popular one. And today the world is again

Selective Draft Officer Stands
Pat Mixup Over Draftees
Still Causing Mlich Discussion
The summary action of Captain H.
Gooding Field in dismissing Jebm Gj
Bridwell from the secretaryship of the
Medical Advisory Draft Board, on the
ground of "disloyalty and untrnthful
ness," is not going to hold, if the
board hae anything to say about it.
The board went on record yesterday
aa disapproving Captain Field's ac
tion, and inferentially as not crediting
the charges made by him against Mr.
Bridwell in the letter of dismissal ad
dressed to him.
The medical advisory bosrd intends
to carry the matter up to Ooverno
McCarthy, with a recommendation that
the action of Captain Field in dis
charging Bridwell be set aside and
that the secretary be retained in his
A decision to this effect was readied
at a conference of the board held yes
terday afternoon, during part of which
Mr, Bridwell was presfcit. The charges
brought by Captain Field against the
secretary were fully gone into and
Mr. Bridwell stated his side of the
ease, apparently convincing the board
that the selective draft officer was not
justified in ' his action or in the ac
cusations made by him.
Still Ob tha Job
Meantime, Mr. Bridwell is still on
the job. though his status is not yet
deflnitely defined. Dr. K. D. Kilbourne.
chairman- of the board, says that Mr.
Bridwell is being retained for the
present to brirg the work of the office
up to date. He added that the whole
matter will be Inid before Governor
McCarthy with the recommendation
that Mr. Bridwell be ictained in his
position. The secretniy, he said, Is an
extremely valuable man for the parti
cular work of the advisory board and
It would be inadvisable to eliminate
him from the conduct of the board's
affairs. Doctor Kilbourne added that
it was greatly to be regretted thnt
anything bad arisen tn cause a breach
between the aelective diaft official and
the board 's secretary.

Captain Field remained determined
yesterday that Mr. Bridwell should no

board.' ; DBspit4v the" fact that jt( has.

Bridwell did not supply The Advertiser
with the information upon which some
Of the stories relating to Captain Field
were based, as the selective draft nra
eor apparently believed he did. Field
refused yesterday to reconsider his
dismissal of Mr. Bridwell.
As a matter of fact, much of the
iaforaiation to which the selective
draft officer seems to object came in
directly from him himself and is atill
in existence in documentary form. It
waa uever mentioned by Mr. Bridwell.
The only information obtained by The
Advertiser from Mr. Hridwell was that
a number of. Filipinos, sent up from
Hilo for the draft, but without papers,
were hungry, penniless and had no way
of obtaining either money or food. Mr.
Bridwell asked that The Advertiser en
deavor to have something done to al
leviate the situation. He did not sug
gest that anyhodv was to blame.
Waa Not Bridwell
These men, sent to Honolulu through
an error which Captain Field lays to
the Hilo draft board but which the
latter repudiates and places squarely
at the door-of Captain Field himself,
were without food from rnday morn
ing until Saturday noon, when Doctor
Westervelt, at his own expense, fed
them. It was not Mr. Hridwell who
supplied The Advertiser with the in
formation that when the matter was
broncht to the attention of Captain
Field, elicited from him the reply that
they rould go out and get jobs, although
there certainly was no chance for Fili
pinoa from the Island of Hawaii to go
and find jobs for themselves on this
island on a Saturday afternoon. This
information was obtained elsewhere.
Doctor VAJestervelt the next day ex
pressed his appreciation of the story
published in The Advertiser which led
to the sugar interests taking up the
ease of the Filipinos and providing
them with food.
Csptain Field later virtually, assumed
responsibility for the men by saying
that if the sugnr plantations did not
provide them with transportation buck
to Hilo, the draft officials would.

The question of who is responsible
for the mix-up over the shipment of In
oligibles from Hawaii to Honolulu is
still agitating both Captain Field and
the Hilo draft board, each of whom
blames the other. Cuptain Field dis
claims all responsibility, sayiug the mix
up is the result of looao methods of the
Hilo draft board. That body, however,
says that it acted, against its own
better judgement, strictly in accoidiinee
with express inst ruct ions issued to it by
Captsiu Field. To back up its coiiiie
tion the Hilo board has iu its posses

selective draft ollio-r in which he or

few days it was not believed that his
illness was a serious one. He had been
able, up to -the last, to preside oa ihe

strange order. He replied, even more
emphatically instructing the board tn
send all Class 1 men, "irrespective of
rating." Then, to make assurance
doubly sure, he followed this up with
verbal orders when he reached Hilo in
person shortly after.
It was in compliance with this order,
the Hilo draft Hoard members explain,
that the men were sent to Honolulu
who should never have been sent here
nd who were later turned loose to
wander penniless about the streets of
n,e city, until The Advertiser publish
ed the story of their uufortunete con
dition, which led to action on the part
of private individuals and firms.
Field Is Eetlcent
Captain Field was asked yesterday if
he would supply for publication copies
of the wireless messages exchanged be
twen himself and the Hilo board, but
he refused to do so.
Another story in The Advertiser
which Mr. Bridwell thinks Mr. Field
lays to information supplied by him,
but with which in reality Mr. Bridwell
had nothing whatever to- do, was that
to the', Beet that 'Filipino aliens arriv
ing hew since. July 31. 17. had been
registered contrary to draft regulations.
Withojt investigation Field asserted
off haad Tueaady that the story in The
Advertiser was '-'misleading."
Iu the face of which statement, Cap
tain Field cabled yesterday to Provost
Marshal Crowder, asking for an inter
pretation and ruling on the subject.
ithin less than twenty-four hours or
his characterization of The Advertiser's
story as "misleading" he went into
conference with Asistant United States
District Attorney J. J. Banks, who ad
vised him to apply at headquarters for
advice. The result was his cable mes
sage to Oeneral ' Crowder.
Asks Information
His inquiry concerns principally young
meu who have attained the age of twen
ty-one years since July 31, 1917, and
who arrived in the Islands since the
same date. I fie rtrart regulations
specifically eliminate draft age aliens
who arrive subsequent to tne (late men
tioned, but it waa decided by the two
officials that in view' of the circum
stances here, Washington should be
nuked for a specific interpretation.
Judge Bauka was of the opinion that
the regulation is not clear as to aliens
arriving under draft age between July
:t0 of last year and July 31 of this year,
although quite clear concerning draft
age aliens.
Although it was generally understood
at the commencing of the filling of
draft quotas by the various local draft
boards that the government would
stand the expense of traasportation
back to homes of 1 those rejected, the
Hawaiian Sugnr Planters' Association
has paid the transportation of sixty
four men rejected at the mobilization
camp. Two of these were registrants
who should uot hnvc been called.
One of the reasons why the planters
are paying the return passage is tluit
the men are needed ou their respective
islands, owing to the thousands of men
who have been drawn from plautatious
into the army. Jtatlier than wait aud
continue to wait until the draft officials
decided it was the duty of the Ameri
can government to pay the cost of
transportation back, the planters took
matters directly in their own hands.
