If There wore exactly 272 sick nnd wounded on
ft tho transport Olivette which arrived hero from
K Cuba on Baturdny night, and yesterday theso
, victims of Bpanlsh bullets and Cuban ellmato
If woro transferred to hospitals In Brooklyn and
1 on Btaten Inland, Not ono of all these men Is
I going to dlo, and fow will bo permanently
crippled as a rosult of their Imrta. Tliowork
I of (ho American surgeons at tho front has
I been romnrkable, and when they tuniod their
patlonts over to the Ollietto there was llttlo
R needed to bo dono for them but nurso them.
ft Among nil tho woundod just ono has liad to
f undergo amputation. Ills right arm was so
f badly shattered by n Mausor bullet that they
ft cut It off In the field. Ho Is cheerful now, and
t say s that ho's lucky that It wasn't a leg.
Y A htindnil and ono of tho sick nnd wounded
B were transferred to tho marine hospital nt Ollf-
ton, Btaten Island, early yesterday morning.
' Tho Ollvetto was anchored In the lower bay oft
Quarantine, nnd tho men wnro placod on tho
Btaten Island fern boat Weslflold. Health Ofll-
eer Doty and Surceon-Cleneral Htornbcrg made
a formal examination of each man boforo he
was transferred. Tho work of putting tho men
ion tho ferryboat proeoedod slowly, as they had
to cross from tho upper deck of tho transport to
. the root of tho Wostfleld's cabin on a
V narrow gangplank. Many of tho mon wore
able to cross by thomsolies. but those
whose wounds were In tholr legs nnd
those who woro sick had to bo carried across
' on stretchers. Thoro wens moro than n thou
sand persons on tho wharf nt Stapleton when
the Wostflold arrived thoro. and thuy gnio
I threo rousing chocra for the Injured men. Tho
f pollco had to beat tho peoplo back when tho
soldiers Wore landed, for at tho appearance of
each man a dozen of his friends and relatives
would rush forward to grasp him by tho hand
or to say a cheering word to him. Allot tho
mon woro finally landed safely In tho hospital.
It was7 o'clock yesterday morning when tho
Ollvetto arrliod at Dow's Btores, foot of Paclflo
street. Brooklyn, and thoro wero then fully
2,000 porsons thoro. waiting toseotho wounded
! soldiers. Word was Immediately sent to tho
I J Long Island Collego Hospital, bt. Tetor's Hos-
; pltnl and to Pollco Headquarters, nnd In half
' 'f an hour thoro woro twenty nmbulanees on tho
, pier. Almost every hospital In Brooklyn con-
( trlbuted an nmbulnnco or two to assist In tho
, work of transporting tho men. A patrl-
f otlo undcrtakor iilso sent down n dead
t wagon, under tho Impression that tho Ollietto
was a floating morgue. Tho surgeons took ad-
j' vantngo of his mistake, and bundling three men
Into tho agon In a hurry sent them off to St.
rotor's Hospital. Ono of tho men who went
nway In tho undertaker's wagon was Corporal
Walter Faradiso of Company M. Second Massa
chusetts Voluntoors. lib thought It was a great
' joko torn man named Faradiso to bo sent oft
Wounded to a hospital in n dead wagon.
, Tho nppoaranco of each Injured man was tho
, ? signal for prolonged applause on the part of
i tho crowds. Men throw tholr hats in tho nir
t and womon waod handkorchlofs and parasols
; ' nttho ragged soldiers, whlloaseach ambulance
'' w as driven oft tho pier It was Immediately sur-
i roundod by mon and women, anxious to shako
I '' hands with a man who had been wounded
! Y fighting Spaniards.
; Thoro was ono little old man In the crowd
, whoso coat and vest woro so adorned with
' t Amorlcan flags and buttons that only in spots
t was tlio cloth of tho garments visible. He had
f a flag tied to his cane, too, and ho was so full of
fr patriotism that ho couldn't contain himself.
I jl " Hoorny 1 hooray 1 hooray 1" he yelled as each
i f nmbulnnco moved out. Then he would rush
' r up alongside grasp the hand of some wounded
j soldior, and say "God bless you, my boy I" His
enthusiasm was infection", and the most con-
iJ scnatlve appearing men and womon in the
crowd woro chooring tho nppoaranco of each
' h ambulance a few minutes after his nrriial.
a r Fifty mon wore Bent to tho Long Island Col-
lege Hospital, fifty-four to Bt. Tetor's Hospital.
t nnd fifty-eight to Governor's Island. Thoso
who went to Governor's Island wero conia-
lcs,ccnts. and according to tho original pro-
, S gramnio woroto remain on tlio Olivette until
, s they wero ready to go to thelrrespectivo homes,
1 . Dutwhcn It becamo known that the barracks nt
I h Governor's Island woro available, it was decidod
f to send tho men thore, and they wero trans-
? 6 Xerred on n tuglKjnt.
j S Tho mon nttho Brooklyn hospitals were very
i b comfortable whon seen there by n Bun reportor
j yesterday afternoon. Even thing possible wns
1 4 being done for their comfort, and they scomod
f perfectly satisfied. All of tho men had tales to
toll of the fighting In Cuba, but they wero all
nllke, and didn't Miry much from tho stories
I printed In Tnis Bun yesterday, told to a ro-
f porter by othors of tho Injured on tho 01l otto.
i All tho woundod olllcors who woro sont to
Tort Wndsworth woro wounded In tho fight of
j a La Guaslmns, except Cnpt. 31, J. Houry of
I Fhiladolnhta, Assistant Quartermaster, who
i rocolvod a alight flesh wound In the loft
k leg In, tho assault upon San Juan Hill.
i Major Alexander O. lirodle of the rough
I . rldors Iibb n bullet hole In his, right arm.
i ' . Ho is n graduate of West Point, class
t of 1870, having been appointed to tho academy
;J frqp fit. IJiwreneo county, this Btato. After
t .i graduation ho was assignedtotho First Cavalry.
!i whoso men fought along side tho rough riders
j at La Guaslmas. Ho remained In tho service
oven years, reaching tho rank of Tlrfat Lieu-
j t tenant. Then ho resigned, becamo the super-
I lntndent of the Walnut Grovo Water Storage
1 f Company of Phosnlx, Arli., nnd joined the
n rough rldors from there. Major Brodle was
! I the only wounded officer at Tort Wadsworth
fj b' who was ablo to recede lsItors jestorday
I f afternoon. In speaking of La Guaslmas he
i said:
I ft "I'm told that tho first battle of the rough
W rldors was reported as a skirmish. Perhaps It
$ f was, but It lastod two hours and twenty min
9 i utes, and there were 000 of us against 4,000
t Spaniards. In killed and wounded wo lost
I f about . '10 per cent, of tho priiatos nnd about U7
! per cont. of the ofllcors. After tho bnttlo
B or fklrmlsh, or whichever you want
to call It, wo sent somo Cubans In
f! i Bldo tho Bpanlsh lines to find out what had
s! JJ liappouod. They camo back to tell us that tho
q ' Spaniards said tho Americans kuew nothing
j g about tho art of viar, because. Instead of stay
f f Ing Ik-IiIiiU works nnd firing, they continually
i h advanced.
Hj K "It wai tho first tlmo our boys had beon in
f i i battle, but they behaved as if they'd been sol-
F r dioriug all tholr Iles. It was also Col. Boose-
R5- elt' first battlo. I nov or saw anything llko
$i i hlra. Col. Wood and I had seen service boforo.
3 V It was tho business of all threo of us to go
JI 8 along the linos to keep the men straight and
5J tell them whit to do. Wood was cool
I ffl ft Mid soft-voiced and talked ns he might

? velt walked up und down the lines, his tooth
; gleaming ami his ordors coming with a snap

MJ f. It was 1 o'clock In tho monilng botoro tho
II I last of tho 101 wounded soldiers who had been
U assigned to tho Mnrlno Hospital at Clirtou
3 was safely landed within tho Institution. Only
11; obontllttoen of thomeu are coullnod to their

geantWundorof Company G. Sixth Infantry,
" biicauso thoy did not land us nt Fortrcsa
Monroe, but now wo are iwrfectly satisflod t our
situation hero Is perfect,"
Tho men are In n bad way for clothing nt
present, but It was said at tho hospital that
their want would probably bo supplied to-day
by tho Women's War Belief Association of
Btaten Island and by other similar organlw
tlons. Shelby F. Ishler of Troop 1) and Edward J.
Albertaon ot Troop F, rough riders, stood talk
tug togothcr. Both men had their right arms
In slings and Ishler was wounded In tho log
also. Thoy were hurt in tho fight at 1a Gun
slma.s. "I was lying beside Capt. Capron of
Troop L In tho field hospital just boforo ho
dlod." Kald Ishlor. "Almost with his last
breath Capt. Capron nskod If tho boys woro re
treating. Wo told him no. Thank God.' ho
said, and sank bick on his cot."
IMward Culver of Troop L. rough riders,
comes from the Indian Territory, and has some
Chorokoo blood In his veins. Culler says that
ho was struck In the left lung by tho samo bul
let that kilted Hamilton Fish. Aftor receiving
this wound Culvorflred forty-flvn shots. Ser
geant Kltno, also of Troop L. spoko In the high
est terms ot Capt. John It. Thomas, Jr. " I
novor saw a gamer man," ho said. "Dur
ing tho Guaslmas fight ho stood on
tho firing lino jelling llko nn Indian.
When ho was struck ho foil against
me, and I tied my canteen strnp around
his legjfo stop tho flow of blood. Capt. Thomas
refuse to go to the rear until two of tho men
picked him up and carried him by main force."
Kline was woundod In tho San Juan fight on
July 1, "Tho bullets wero thick as mosqui
toes." ho said, "but when tho boys hit that hill
they hit It yellln'. Tho Spaniards took ono
look at 'em and then cleared out. Five of our
men went for water and fell in with thirty-two
Spanish cavalrymen, who cut them up. Later
on theso samo Spaniards got mlxod up with
somo moro of our men, nnd when they got
through thoro wero two dead horses and thirty
two dead Spaniards."
Culver saw tho destruction ot Corvcra'B (loot
from tho i)cck ot tho Ollvetto. Ho said that
somo of tho wounded who hadn't been nblo to
movo for days got up on tholr elbows nnd
eliocred when thoy heard of tho victory over
Henry It. O'M.illoy of Company B, Eighth In
fantry, has been ton years in the United States
Army and was formerly n member ottho Capo
mounted pollco In tho Zulu warof 7D-'81, but
ho says ho novor saw such hot fighting as at
Santiago. O'Mallcy was wounded In tho right
arm at tho storming of Y. Cnney.
"Tho Second Massachusetts and the Eighth
wero In nbout tho hottest phco nt our ond of
tho lino," he said. "The volunteers showed
perfect discipline, nnd fired In volleys until they
wero storped becauso of the smoko from their
Bprlngllelds But tho colored troops carried off
tho palm They wero encored heartily by tho
other regiments, nnd that meanH n good denl.
for It Is seldom that regulars cheer ono
"As for tho heat." said O'Malley, "I havobeon
on a target range In North Dakota when It wns
fully as hot as any weather wo experienced at
Santiago "
Private Owen McKallyof Company D, Twelfth
Infantry, eamo from England to join tho army.
He was struck In tho hnnd by n piece of sholb
McNally told of a Bpanlsh prisoner who said:
"Shoot at Cubano he run. Shoot at Ameri
cano ho come on moro."
During tho afternoon religious services wero
held on the Marino Hospital Inwn by tho Rev.
Henry A. Btewart, deacon In St. Paul's Episco
pal Church, Staploton Most of the wounded
soldiers attended tho sorvlco.
It is lmposslblo to describe tho indignation
that has been aroused by tho story In tho Worht
of Saturday charging tho officers and menot
the Seventy-first Regiment of this city with
cowardico In the San Juan fight. Tho men of
tho SKth and Sixteenth regular infantry aro
p-irticularly angry about It, because tho Sovon
t) -first was in the same brlgado with thom in
tho fight. A dozen men who were seen yester
day by a Sun reporter added tholr denials of
tho story to thoso printed, In The, Bun of yos
terday and declared that tho Now York militia
men fought llko horoes all through tho action,
only retiring whon ordered to becauso tho
smoko from their Bprlngllelds betrayed tho
Amorlcan position to tho enemy.
Tho rough riders aro tho particular Idols at
tho hospitals where they are now quartered.
Tho record made by thoso men at the front has
in ado oach Individual among them a hero In tho
eyes of tho pooplo. All the rough riders who
cnino North on tho Ollvetto have bullet wounds
in ono placo or another. All tho men In tha
Brooklyn hospitals are suffering from gunshot
wounds, the sick men having beon taken to tho
Marino Hospital on Staton Island.
Following Is a list of tho injured and tho hos
pitals whoro they aro now quartored. Unless
otherwlso designated, tho men are privates,
and whore a description of Injuries Is not

Nichols's wound wan not so serious.
Lieut. Nichols's regiment. Llout.-Col. Gilbert
S Carpenter commanding, bore the brunt of
the El Cnney fight. Gen. Adna It. Chaffoe's
brlgado was ordered to tnko tho town. Tho
Seventeenth had tho right of the line, tho
Seventh tho centre, and the Twelfth tho left.
Tho fighting began atOln the morning and
continued until late In tho afternoon. Capron's
battery, further over on tho loft, aided In tho
"Tho town was defended by five block
houses," relates Lieut Nichols. " Wo advanced
on tho town from tho north. On our loft, on
tho top of a hill, wns a stono fort, with bastions
on the four corners nnd rifle trenches about.
It was hardly a fort more llko a stono block
house. On our right, on another rise of ground,
was nn ordinary blockhouse. While we woro
advancing through a line of brush they
opened Are on us from both sides, and
our men began to drop. We had to
run down In a valley nnd up to a
another rldgo. Tor some reason I have not
beon ablo to fathom, we were not fired on while
wo wore crossing this open spaco. The ston
house on our left could hnvo annihilated us.
Wo climbed up the ridge, stopping to reBt In n
dug-out road. Tho blockhouso on our right,
on this road, was silenced, but thn
stone house poured n heavy flro Into our
lines, Wo took up n position nlong tho
ridge, overlooking a stream running Into tho
Agundoros. On tho other sido was FJ Caney.
Across tho v alley wo could see tho church of F.1
Caney. which wns used as a fort. Sharpshooters
wero up In tho steeple To the right of tho
church woro two blockhousos, and another lay
nwny over on a rlso of ground to tho
loft of tho town. Wo lay there from noon
to 2 o'clock, and It wns there wo suffered
our heaviest losses. Wo kept peppering away
at tho blockhouses when thoro was anything
to shoot at. Soon tho nrflllery fire on the
stono house drovo tho Spaniards out, and they
ran down tho hill, across tho stream, Into the
town, reinforcing tho troops in the church and
In tho two blockhouses to tho right. Wo could
see them running, but tho range was too great
to mako firing at them effective.
"Then wo ndvanced down Into the valley to
tho town. Tho Spaniards began retreating
from tho church, and as thoy ran our men
plckod them off Afterward I counted nineteen
of them in one bunch killed by our fire. Tho
enemy retreated in tho direction of Santiago,
leaving tholr dead and wounded behind. Our
regiment lost thlrty-ono killed. Including two
officers, and ninety-one wounded. Lieut.
Wansboro of Company 0 was shot through tho
heart while we wero on tho ridge, no stood up
and looked out of the trench, We buried him,
with some fifty others, near tho western block
house. Tho Spanish loss must have been very

were terribly wounded. Mnny of tho bullets
from our Krag-Jorgonsnn rifles had rebounded
from the stono walls of tho church and made
frightful wounds. Tho wounds wero all much
v. orso than ours from tho Mauser bullets. Out
on the road, where we had ploked off the re
treating Spaniards, we found the dead terribly
cut up by our bullet. They wero burled by
ono ot our officer. He came baok looking
'"Lost your appetite for dinner!' ho was
"'Yes, I hnve lost my appetite for dinner, and
I'vo lost all desire for fighting,' ho said.
"Tho Krng-Jorgcnsen behaved admirably.
It Is not qulto as rapid ius thu Mauser, hut It Is
moro powerful. Tho men had no trouble with
tholr guns, dcspllo the fact that some of them
wero rusty from tho sea voyage and exposure.
I would rather faco Mausers than any other
rifles at Santiago, but tho Spilngflclds nro tho
most dondly. They made frightful wounds, Wo
had no volunteers with us, so wo didn't soo any
of the firing with tho Sprlngflelds."
Lieut. Povereux wai on tho Ollvotto off BI
boney when Cervora's squadron oteamod out of
Santiago harbor. Somo ono wlgwaggod from
tlio shore:
" Four Spanish ships hnvo escaped from har

down there. Wo heard somo firing to tlio

wns on. Wo waited there anxiously for hours,
Aftnrn long tlmo wo sighted a tugbont coming

shouted through n mogaphono:
" 'Tho whole Spanish squadron Is destroyed.'
"Thnt wns good news. I can toll you. It
wasn't so hard to go homo after that, but It was
n hard thing tolio wounded boforo tho renl

Tho firing of tho onomy sounded llko

The Spaniards Are In n Pltlnble Condition
nnd Hnvo a Hunted Look They Cnnnot
Vlidrrstnnd the Oentle Treatment Thnt
Is Given to Them Nnraea of the Men.
NoBroLK. Vn., July 17. Dr. C, J. Clebornc,
Medical Director United States Navy, Inchnrgo
ot tho United States INaval Hospital horo.iwas
seen to-day by Tnc Bun reporter, who called nt
tho hospital to secure a list of tho Spanish nnd
Amorlcin sick and wounded soldiers landed
there yostorday afternoon by tho United Btatos
nmbuhtneo ship Solace, It was also desired to
secure nn Intorvlow with somo of tho Spanish
wounded who are prisoners of war thore.
Dr. Clebomo stated that no list of tho
wounded had been prepared as jot, and that
Cnpt D. Victor Conchas of tho Spanish cruiser
Maria Teresa had specifically requested thnt
no newspaper mon bo pormlttod to Intorvlow
any of tho Spanish officers, and thut they bo
permitted to remain In seclusion.
Dr. Cloborno said that tho welfiro of his pa
tients was his first concorn and that courtesy
dictated thnt ho should respect their desire for
absolute privacy, and that he must dccltno to
admit any visitors. Dr. Ctobomo said that tho
wounded wero now experiencing what might
bo called tho second shock, and that absolute
quiet wns noeossary for tholr welfare. In view
of this statement tho rcqunst to bo permitted
to interview tho wounded mon waa withdrawn.
Dr. Klto subsequently offered Tins Son re
porter access to tho books of tho hospital upon
which tho names of every patient nro entered
whn they aro admitted, and from thoso a list
was copied.
Aftor this had boon accomplished an oppor
tunity occurred whereby a reporter waa per
mitted to pass through tho wards where tho
nick and w oumted lay, and by the pormisstoii of
Dr, Cloborno ho was allowed to go first through
the Word where our wounded lay on cots. thon.
skirting the ones where the typhoid fovor pa
tients nro treated, through tho ono where tho
Spanish wounded Ilo. Before the tour began
Dr. Clebomo npkod that In passing Spaniards
tho reporter appear to be not curious to
eco them. Ho said that It angorcd and
disturbed them to bo looked nt fixedly, and
that this is tmo was mado clear liter.
Passing slowly through tho wards In company
with tlie guide It wns noticed thnt tlio wounded
gaio n quick, sharp Blanco nt tho passorby.
nnd when tho challenging look was not
answered turned tholr eyes nway nnd seemed
to rest again. Tho poor fellows as they Ho on
the cots nppenl strongly to tho sympathy ot tho
spectator. There Is In their cyos a hunted look
which tspltlnblo.
Thoso who hav o seen a rat with ono foot In a
steel trap nttemptlng to gnaw off tho confined
foot will know how theso poor fellows look.
They seem to expect to soon be killed instead
of to oxpect tho tondor care which will bu giv en
tho n. They am treated exactly as tho Ameri
can wounded, and thnt means much. They nro
a wild-looking set, though, and It is evident
hnvo undorgono fearful hardships. Almost
without exception tlielr feet wero uncovered
to-day. Tho soles of theso were as black as aro
tho soles of ordinary shoes. It could bo scon at
a glance that tho men have been barefooted for
n long tiino. It Is ovidont that the btorles told
of their mlsorlcfl hnvo not been exaggerated.
Tho officers are quartered on tho floor abov o.
nnd this floor was not visited. Tho fact that
115 dressed chickens. l'JO pounds of round,
nnd ;MM) pounds of roast beef nnd beofsteak
were delivorcd nttho hospital last night Is sig
nificant how tho Spaniards are to faro.
Tho wounded Spaniards nro nominally pris
oners, but no guards appear within tho build
ing, although whlto-clad marines patrol tho
walks. The grounds surrounding tho hospltnl
nro very extensive nnd beautiful. It Is in a
park of 700 acres nnd faces Norfolk and this
harbor. Dr. Huntington, assistant surceon. Is
in immediate charge of tho Spanish woundod,
nnd Passed Assistant Surgeon Kennedy of tho
Amorlcan sick nnd woundod. Of tho latter
there are now 110 under troatmont. Volunteer
nurses Missos White, Piatt nnd Gclsmann aro
on duty at this hospital.
Tlio wounds of many nro very severe, and,
although all were reported to bo progressing
fairly well this afternoon, forty of the rnoii had
to be lowered with block and tackle, lvlng upon
stretchers, from tho Solace to the tug when sho
nrrivod hero. Dr. Cloborno, who appeared to
fuel a bravo mnn's pity for his vanquished nd
vorMiry, snid that the Spanish officers seemed
to fool their defeat very koonly nnd to drcud
tho oj os of tho curious. From what ho snld It
Is ovklent that tho Spanish totally mlsunder
atind the American character and npprehond
being jeered nt In their distress. Ho suld thnt
they nppearcd to dread tho sight of us, nnd
tint ho would respect theirdoslroforseclusion.

After Telling the CongTegntlon of Tremont I '
Methodist Church tha 8tory ot the Bat H
lie at Smitlngo Ho Contradicts Ons by I
One the Libel Published by the World. H
Tho unusual spcctaclo ot a largo church con. H
irrcgatlon that had but a moment botoro been H
reiorently going through resnonshe cervices H
suddenly breaking Into wild applause, whllo H
tho pastor smilingly upproiod of tho storm ha Hj
had raised, was presented at tho Tremont H
Methodist Episcopal Church at Washington H
nienue and 178th street lost night. Tholtev. I
Dr C. W. Millard earlier In tho wook had an- H
nouticed a patriotic scrvlco. with an address by H
Llout. W. E. Trull. Company G, Sovonty. H
first Now York Volunteers, now homo H
on sick leaio from Santiago, wounded. Iff
Tho church as a result was crowded. Ovor tho iff
organ was draped an immense American Hag, HJ
whllo programmes, printed In rod, whito and H
blue, wero found In each row. Theso con- H
tnined tho words of "America," "Tho Star H
Spangled Banner" nnd "Tho Battle Hymn ot fl
tho Republic " Those songs wero gi on with a nH
im thnt drew words of commendation from g
the pastor. 5rt
" I am not going to detain you long," said Dr. 8r
Millard as ho roso to speak, "as I know you M
nro all anxious to henr tho address of one of our I
heroes from Santiago. I was only nblo to get H
him hero through tho help of his wife. Ho fald H
ho did not want to put hlmsolf on exhibition I JB
want to congrntulnta this congregation, as it is 5
tho first In tho greaterclty of New York to wel
come homo one of the boys in blue. I was going
to offer a hint, but I won't, nnd I will now ask
Lieut. Trull to tako his plnco besido mo hero on
tho platform."
As Lieut, Trull, with his wounded arm in a
sling, stepped on tho platform, tho congrega
tion broko Into applause. Tho women began
wai Ing their handkerchiefs and tho meii ' '.
lowed suit.
"Stand up!" cried Dr. Millard. And tho con
gregation obeyed. The applause lnstod oier
four minutes, nnd Lieut. Trull stood blushing,
at a loss ivnat to do.
" I'll venture that was a harder ongngemono
for tho Lieutenant to faco then Santiago," ob'.
served I)r. Millard. "I seo my hint was nod
"I thank you for this reception." snld Lieut.
Trull. " but you must remember that I am only
n small part of tho regiment. I hopo you will
giio tlio boys oon a creater welcome when
they return nnd march up Broadway."
For moro than an hour Lieut Trull told of
the experiences of tho Beionty-flrst. following
tho snino lines as given by him in his Intenlevr ,W
that appeared In Trie Sun the day following
his return. Ho was froquontly Interrupted by ImI
applause. iftV
' "Aftor this." said Dr. Millard when Lieut. HL
Trull had finished speaking, "you can't mnko HP
me bolloio that thoro is any body in tho Seventy- m
first Regiment thnt didn't walk up to the fp 'tit H
of the lino nnd do his duty. Certainly some- a
body Is miropresonting tlio facts. Men that loft H
New York to fight and who tako prldo In their rji
namos, tholr homes and their regiment are no M
going to bo cowards. It Is ridiculous. It Is ffl
nonsense. I am glad there was common sensa fl
enough in this city to repudiate the story. It is m
hardtogheupthocomtorts of home to fight M
for ohm's t ountry, but It Is mean to subject tha I
men that do to slurs, sneers and Insinuation! I
that are false." I
Tho congregation applaudod loudly. Thoy I
crowded around Lieut. Trull for half an hour ffl
ntter tho sorvices. Then Lieut. Trull found I
tlmo to speak to a Sun rcportor about tho B
H'urM's story of cowardico among tho ofllcera H
of tho 8ei enty-flrst Hoglment. H
"Dr. Mlllird was at my house yesterday," I
said he. "and hsard what I told a World ro I
porter. Let him toll you what I said." I
"It was pretty strong language" admlttod I
Dr. Millard with a laugh, " and I muot say I do I
not caro to repeat It. It was language of which H
I would not approve unless It was addressed to H
a World reporter." jfl
"There never was a moro contemptible, ma- I
llclous lie printed." said Liout. Trull. "Why,
when I was woundod Col. Downs was not moro n
than twenty feet away from me. Ilo was as
cool as a cucumbor, although ho was In moro JI
danger than his mon, for thoy woro lying down .vl
and hu was standing up. Ho was right In tho ijS)
front line, too. I also saw Llout.-Col. Smith.
Major Wells and Major Whittle, who tho H'oi Id j
falsely declares could not bo found. I
"Tho Twenty-fourth Kcgimont did pass I
through our ranks, hut It was only to got to tho M
position asslgnodto thom on our loft. They Vl
never jeored at us. or called us cowards, nor
did they nt any tlmo get between us and tho m
enemy's lire. Why, aftor tho fight regulars In I
the hospital spoko In enthusiastic torras of tho I
vi ay our regiment had acted. Tho fact Is, tho I
World Is Bimply looking for a sensation. I
It know It did not dare to Ilo nbout the entlro H
regiment, so it lied nbout tho officers. The
World will regrot over having printed such an H
outrageous falsehood whon tho roglment ro-
turns, for It will be quickly caliod to account."
Tho llstenors grinned and approved, " That' I
tho talk." said ono old man with gray hair. M
