A TOUR OF THE ARMY POSTS
Continued from Flral Pn*te.
eluding, frequently, the m?kln?; and striking of
camp and the parking of train* for defence
against attack.
"The parkinR of trains? Well, that Is a very
Interesting- form of battle tactics. There is a
good deal of fighting on the plains, and when a
train of wagons is stretched out several miles It
offers a peculiarly inviting chance for an attack
and stampede from the Indians. In parking the
trr.ns the wagons are placed in a circle on the
outside, with the mules Inside, while the troop?
conceal themselves In and around the wagons or
behind them and the mules.
"The inspection next includes the visiting of the
quarters of the men, the barracks, storehouses,
etc.. which Is done either by the inspector or a
etaff officer, whom he may send when he wishes
to economize time
"At Fort Sam Houston. I found the post in
fine condition, and the inspection was highly
SStlSfactorr. From San Antonio I went to El
Paso, where Is the new post. Fort Bliss. This
was only recently completed, yet some of the
buildings had been seriously damaged by storms,
and they were being repaired while I was there.
Four companirs of infantry are regularly sta?
tioned there, but because of the injury to the
?buildings s..me of the troops were elsewhere
during my vint. The main thing to be remarked
about Fort Bliss is that the severity of the
.forms in that part of the country makes it ex?
tremely difficult to construct posts which will
not be damaged, and so make living there un?
comfortable at times.
"Let me say that before reaching Fort Bliss I
paaacid within some nine miles of Fort Clark,
which lies off the Southern Pacific Railroad that
distance. I did not visit ttw post, as I was there
only a few years ago. but the officers of the post
anana out to the Junction to meet me.
AT fort BATARD.
"From Fort Bliss I went on to Fort Bayard,
named after General Bayard, a brave officer of
the Civil War. This post is in the southern part
of New-Mexi- o, among the fo ?thills of the moun?
tains. It is a very pretty post. The garrison
consists of one battalion of infantry and two
tr 'ops of cavalry. It seemed to be In excellent
condition. The troops are of the 24th Infantry
and the 1st Cavalry. It was nt Fort Hayard
that we i-iioountered a sandstorm, which was so
li< i ?? that we could not see the troops across
the parade ground?. So the review and the In?
spection were omitted. This post was built to
SSS.SI in the control Of the Apache Indians. It
lies near one of the old trails of that tribe, cx
t ; .in; between the Apache grounds and <>'.d
Mexico, through which they oaed to make their
escape Into Mexico after their depredations In
New-Mexico and Arizona. There have been
none of tho?:.> depredations recently; in fact,
they have nearly ceased. But the post is still
valuable in the enforcement of the neutrality
laws as to Mexico."
General Bchofield spoke of the fondness of Mex?
ican revolutionists for organizing Just ?over the
border in New-Mexico, and then making raids
Into their own country. For this reason these
posts near the border have to be maintained.
"Last ye.tr," he continue.), "there was a little
something of the kind going on. Frequently the
tr ?ops are stirred up by rumors which may have
gomethlttg substantial behind them, but the pres?
ence of the troop? generally suffices to prevent
any Infraction of the neutrality laws. It a^ts as
a deterrent force.
"Next I proceeded by way of Albuquerque to
Fort Wiiitrate, in the northern part of New
Mexico. We reached there in the latter part of
May. While JTOU in the East were suffering fr >m
the heat of those days, we had experience with a
snowstorm at Furt Wingate. There was a fail of
?ST?ral inches. This is now a small post, the
garrison consisting of fou? troops of cavalry. Its
putpose is to control the numerous Indians in the
northeast Of Arizona and the northwest of New?
Mexico. This refers especially to the Navahoes.
who create a good deal of trouble In the struggle
for water between the white settlers and them?
selves. Water is very scarce there, and fre?
quently the wens and pits in the Navahoe Reser?
vation give out, and then the Indians leave the
Bw reservation In pursuit of water.
?# DTDlANfl AND THF WHITES.
S^ "Of course, they come into contact with tjie
Whites and then comer, a clash. Furthermore,
Indians and whit?? steal each other's sheep and
cattle. There ;.re aomc five thousand Navahoes.
They are strong and healthy, unlike the Ban
nocka and Shoshonen They are a pastoral peo?
ple and very peaceful. They raise large floks of
Sheep and great herds of cattle. But they are
mu. h like the white man in keeping a sharp eye
out for their own."
lien ver, the headquarters of the Department of
the Colorado. General Wheaton in command, was
the next Stopping place. General Sehofleld took
occasion to explain that "the Colorado" referred
not to the State, but to the river, a custom es?
tablished during the late war, as in the case of
the Department of the Potomac, the Tennessee,
the Mississippi, etc. Fort Logan i? the post at
this place. It Mes near Denver and s atthwest of
It some ten or twelve mile.?. As to the designa?
tion "fort" used at all the posts, this Is a mis?
nomer, General Sehofleld said, as there was no
fort at all at any of these points, only barracks.
Still, it had become an official designation.
Colonel Merriam Is In command at Fort Logan,
the garrison consisting of the Tth Infantry, with
a squadron of cavalry. General Sehofleld said of
his experience here:
"The troops were reviewed and inspected in full
dress and in campaign dress. The infantry
gave a remarkable exhibition of facility and
rapidity In making and breaking camp in the
field. In that form of tactics every man carries
a pack?we used to call it a knapsack?an 1 half
a tent on hi? back. The command is to 'sling'
or 'unsling knapsack.' The men made and
broke camp in a wonderfully short time. I was
going to say they made ca?np in seven minutes
and unma le it in four. But I won't trust to
memory, for it may have been In less time. I
know it was wonderfully quick work when th?y
hal struck camp and were all ready for the
march. It was a fine exhibition.
"I will say .n general terms that I found the
IroopS at Fort Logan in a very high state of
efficiency. Their quarters, everything, wa? in
an excellent condition.
"The most important question this post has to
deal with sometimes is perhaps a railroad strike.
But the troops are there for geneial popoasa
It Is a centre whence tne troops can quickly be
cent to various points. The department Of which
Fort Logan Is the headquarters embraces Col?
orado and the Territories of Utah, New Mexico
and Arizona."
?THF. SCHOOL AT FORT RILEY.
From Denver the tour lay east again to Fort
Riley, Kansas. There is the cavalry and light
artillery school designed for practical exercises
?.: I the combined operations of cavalry and
artillery. Th" garrison consists of two squadrons
of cavalry from different regiments and three
l.attalior.i? of infantry. General Sehofleld was
particularly enthusiastic over Fort Riley, faying:
"This is a very beautiful post. The Govern?
ment, before any land was taken up here, re?
served 20,000 aerea of fine rolling country. There
Is no aettlement, of course, upon It. The nearest
place in Junction City, a few miles from Fort
Riley. and just off the reservation. While the
country is rolling prairie, some of it is flat?the
Kansas River bottom, for Instance.
"Fort Riley is a very old pom, hut it has been
re -.-fitly reconstructed and much enlarged In a
durable and perfect manner and one intended to
be permanent. The garrison here 1? what it waa
intended to be, a model in all Its appointment?,
discipline and efficiency. Colonel Arnold la in
con.mand. The commandant and all the field of
floer? are ?elected with reference to the highest
efficiency. Details of troops are changed

From Fort Riley our Journey was made 1>> I
to Fort Leavenworth. where we arrived the
morning, early In June. Here Is an Infantry
cavalry school where all the young officer
both branches are sent in turn for a two-y
course of Instruction. It Is what may be call
post-graduate school of the Military Acadi
designed t<> afford thorough instruction in
branches. The permanent garrison consist
two battalions of infantry and four troops of
airy, commanded by Colonel Hawkins, of the
fantry. There is always a large number of yr
officers here undergoing instruction. It is a
large post and in excellent condition, except s
of the old buildings, which should be torn d
and replaced with new ones. These old build
were put up at a time when haste was aeceet
because a post was needed whence troops 01
be sent out to guard trains. They were bull
timber ?tnd logs, whereas the buildings at
posts are now <>f brick. The troops here wer
excellent condition, and the course of instruc
for the young officers Is thorough and satis
tory in every respect. At Fort Leavenwortl

prison, but It has recently been transferred
Congress to the Department of Justice as a c
prison.
THE NEW POST AT OMAHA.
"Our next point wa. Omaha, where we vtSJ
the old Fort Omaha, in the suburbs of the c
and the new poet. Fort Crook, which Is not
completed or garrisoned. The new post is
ceedingly well built and promises to be one of
best. The old post Is still garrisoned, th
being two battalions of Infantry in line conditl
Fort Nlobrara. a post near the Sioux reservatl
and three miles from the Klkhorn Valley R
road, was next Inspected, it is garrisoned b;
regiment of Infantry under Colonel Townse
It Is not far from the Dakota line. The tro.
presented a fine appearance and gave a cr?dita
exhibition of skill in making and br?>aking car
The quartermaster gave a remarkable exhibit
of wagon train drill, Intended for conditions
conflict with the Indians. The purpose of t
post is to patrol the Sioux In.Hans.
"From here we went to Fort Meade, In Sot
Dakota, a beautiful post garrisoned by t
(??quadrons of cavalry commanded by Colo.
Carleton. This post, like those of Niobrara a
Fort Robinson, is intended to aid in the cont
of the Sioux Indians, it being to the north, wh
the others are at the south of the Pine Riel
agency. The troops at this post were fou
to be In the same excellent condition which ch;
acterizes the army in the Wwt, ready at
times for active service at a moment's notice."
The tour next led to Fort Custer, where t
visit proved a most Interesting, although sad 01
Speaking of his experience here, General Beb
field said:
"We reached Fort Custer by a new branch
the Chicago, Burlington and Qulncy Rallroj,
which ha? been constructed, not in the hac
manner in which new roads in the far West *
apt to be made, but in the most thorough manne
with complete rock ballast. We travelled 1
night and reached the post the next day. Fo
Custer Is a pleasant and well located p.-st. It
' on the plains, and its occupancy te freed fro
the objection which formerly existed on SCCOUl
<>f its great distance from any railroad. Tl
garrison is a squadron of cavalry in th? usu
good condition. The barracks and quarters a
in satisfactory condition.
THF GRAVES OF CVBTER'B MKS'.
"In the afternoon nf the day we arrived thei
we visited the Custer battlefield under the guie
anee of a scout who had located the positions ?
the cead of Caster's command soon after ti
battle. We we-e, therefore, under his guidant
and by aid of his Information, able to trac
quite ttttsfSCtOrlljr the course nf happenings i
the disastro is battle in *rhlcb Custer and hi
troops met their heroic death. Every grave i
marked by a tablet. These were? erected upon ir
formation supplied by the scout.
"From Fort Custer we turned back to Foi
Robinson, Nebraska, neir the southwest corne
of the Sioux Reservation. This is garrisoned h
the 9th Cavalry. Colonel Fiddle eommamling. Tii
exhibition given by this regiment and the .-or
monial exercises In the manoeuvres and march'
in campaign outfit, as well as in battle tactic
upon the extended plains nenr the post, was tin
surpassed by anything which we had seen durln
the tour of inspection. A part of the garr?s
which I Inspected is now in Western Wyomlni
looking after the Bannock Indians.
"Fort D. A. Russ.-ll. near Cheyenne, Wyo., Wfl
the next post in our tour. This is one of th.
posts designed for the protection of the Uni o
Pacific Railroad. The garrison is mad- up o
two battalions of Infantry. These were r -vL-vve,
and Inspected, and they went through th" ordin
ary battle tactics and manoeuvres ander the:
respective commanders in an entirely aatllfac
tory manner.
"From here we went by way of Og.le-n to Bal
Lake City and visited Fort Douglas, which i
situated on an elevated plateau overlooking th<
city. The garrison is composed of a regiment o
infantry, which was reviewed and Inspected with
entirely satisfactory re-suits. After one day hen
and in Salt Lake City we proceeded to San Fran
is ., where we arrived about June 1.
THF GARRISON AX THF lltF?lDIO.
"The principal garrison in San Francisco 1.?
at the Presidio, a large reservation near the ? ity
toward the s>-a. containing the sites of the aea
coast fortification?? on the Bouth side of the
Golden Gate. The garrison consists of on? bat?
talion of fort artillery, one battalion e.f licrht
artillery and one squadron of cavalry. The- other
posts In the harbor arc the Alcatraz and \ II
island??. The garrisons from these last two were
brought to the Presidio and united with the gar?
rison of that post for inspection and review.
The manoeuvring? of these combined troops
under the command of Brigadier-General For?
syth, commander of the Department of Cali?
fornia, were exceedingly brilliant and In every
respect entirely satisfa tory.
"The troops are stationed at this point for
general service. The policy is to concentrate
them here, whe-nce they can be rapidly si :it by
rail In ease of emergency, as when Colon? I
Graham, In charge of the infantry, was sent to
Sa. lamento during the railroad striked, while
other troops were hurrie.l ,,fi t , \jcm Angel, -s.
"The next day an inspection was made of the
new fortifications f ?r the defence of the (tolden
Oate, including a battery of twelve rifled mortars,
Just completed, and ready for service. Of tiiis
and similar batteries constructed at other im?
portant points it is sufficient to say at present
that they are probably the most ofll rlenl and
satisfactory means of defence against naval at?
tacks that have ever ?Slated anywhere in the
world."
From certain incidental remarks which Gen?
eral Sehofleld here made, not intend?-1 f..r for?
eign ears, it was mad. plain that the Oolden
Gate would be an extremely unsafe port for any
naval ve-ssel hostile to the Fnlted States t.. ?it
tempt to get within a specified , number oi
miles of.

thence by boat to the Vancouver Barracks,

a beautiful post, situated on the bank?? of the
