They had really OTOirthing they I needed and an ample fund on which they iLl could draw to supply themselves with more. Even champagne was at their command, one of them declared, if they desired It. Still the M surgeon of the regiment when first ap X Broached did confess to a lack of aheets and m nightshirts a coniession fully borne out by the facts revealed when we visited the hoo- m pita' Hut this, according to the officer who shewed us through, was not due to any lack of moans, but to a belief on tho part of those In charge that woollen is more wholesome in this climate, than cotton. i "The fact Is that thia regiment was a little J nettled. They felt that a recent article In the Aru- I'm-- Herald did them a gross tDjustioe. 1 They declared that the writer nad never vis ited the hospital, nor conferred with any of the surgeons in regard to the number or thecon- dltion of tho juitients; and if what they told yiue touching the contents of the article be true. ehould say they had reason to feel ag grieved. v "The number of sick In hospital yesterday was sixteen ; four of them typhoids. I nnder stiTd them to say. 'i'hesmali rpentago of tv , plioldl In all the regiments surprised me. The prevailing typo of fever is malaria, and threat ens, lu the opinion of Dr. Knowles. to be muoh niore serious a month from now." Dr. Kent arranged to supply any articles that niieht be needed. The i'.r-i fiupplies to be sent to Havana for the Cubans were shipped yesterday on the v. aid line steamship Kennett. She carried twenty-five tons of Red Cross supplies, which ;ll lie distributed in and about Havana. Miss Clara Barton will be in charge of the work of distribution. The counsel for the Red Cross Society, D. L. Cobb, who sailed on tho steamer with the supplies, did so with the special per mission of the customs authorities. This was necessary, as the steamer is simply a freight boat ami is not allowed to carry passengers. The heunett ulso carried many boxes ofma . chinery and supplies consigned to Havana lueri'liants. Ul The Red Cross Committee on Supplies met Ik Yesterday at the depot at f02 Broadway. Cleve- Ian I 11. Dodge presided, aud there were pres- ei.t Mrs. VMiitelaw Held, Miss Draper the Misses Morton. Mrs. Cornell. Miss Helen Hoff- l Stan, and A. S. Kolomons. Miss Morton, rep- resenting Auxiliary 1. reported that $500 had beeu sent to Dr. Mott at Montauk Point to purchase delicacies for the sick. The Nurses' Maintenance Society, repre sented by Miss Draper, reported An the num ber of Red Cross nurses at present employed in hospitals throughout the country. Sixty nurses are now at the Sternberg Hospital at Chickamauga, ten nurses at the Letter Hospi tal, eight at Fort Monroe, ten at Governors Island, four at Charleston, and sixteen at Fort Vadsworth. Twenty-four nurses were sent yesterday to the camp at Montauk Point, J making a total of about fifty nurses sent there Hj since the camp was opened. The other fifty y" called for by the Government will, it is hoped. 'J be sent in a few days. Auxiliary '1. represented by Mrs. Altachule. reported having sent a large number of miscel laneous supplies to the camp and a lot of gar- , ments. which were made ny the wives of UJ soldiers. Tho Woman's Committee on Aux- r lliaries reported through Miss Draper that two new auxiliaries had been organized, mak ing the total number of auxiliaries formed ninety-one. A call has been sent out to the auxiliaries for pajamas. negllg shirts and lux uries of all kinds. This was necessary In or der to meet the heavy demands for such arti cles from the camps and hospitals. Thirteen dozen neglige shirts, one case of comfort bags and one case of dry goods were sent to Montauk Point yesterday, and 300 nightshirts. 300 suits of pajamas. 500 sheets and 500 pillowcases were sent to Tampa. It was said at the meeting that in the distribu l tion of Red Cross supplies no attempts were V being made to discriminate between the vol unteers and regulars. The Red Cross agent at Camp Wikon received Instructions some I time ago to treat all alike. The sum of JI300 has been raised for the benefit of the Ice Plant Auxiliary ami the Land and Sea Auxiliary at an entertainment at the Wuumbek Hotel. , Jefferson. N. H. The Executive Committee of the Red Cross Relief Committee met yesterday at the Chamber of Commerce and decided to issue a special appeal fpr funds. It is thought that flUU.OOO more will be needed to meet the In- i creasing demands upon the society for aid or the soldiers at the camjw. The report of rederick D.

Sweet, one of the bins costs who joined Roosevelt's rough riders, went to Police Headquarters yesterday to get his back pay. His place Is waiting for him and his pay ran on while he was away. HI old friends did not know him. He had lost forty pounds in an attack of fever; he was yellow and gaunt and crept painfully into the building like an old man. Once headquarters found him out tho clerk and policemen Rooked to tho Treasurer's office to shake hand. When ho had received hi bark pay of something over $300. he went sway to cot a plate of ice cream, the one thing he hnd beon longing for sine he was able to got about. Starvation caused more suffering before the wall of Santiago than within. Sweet thought. The soldiers had no proper food. Volunteers' stomach are not attuned to hardtack and ba con, whatever those of the regulars may be. As a result, many starved. Sweet was directly behind Policeman Hayward, his chum In the rough riders, when he was killed, and only a few steps from Hamilton Fish. Both mon were killed by the same volley, he says. It came from some shrubs sixty feet or so away, in which lurked some Spanish sharpshooters. A Mauser bullet wont closn through Hayward. It a twenty-six hours after he was shot. sweet said. Iwfore surgical assistance came. In the fight of the hilltop the rough riders climbed a path that permitted only ope. man to Passat a time. Up at tho top 2.000 Spaniards lay in wait nnd opened tire upon them. But there they fonnd Col. Roosevelt shouting to them to come on. " Wherever tho fight was thickest." Sweet said, "and the bullets fell thick as hall, there he was yelling to us to come on. I never saw anything like it. And when the fight was oyer, ho dldn t lie In his tent nnd loaf. He was up and about among the mon, looking after tho wounded and seeing If anything was wanting. Oh. ho Is a great man. is Teddr. And Gen. Wood! Ho ought to lie commander of all tho armies, then nobody would starve, and ovory lody would fight up to the top notch. Go bek ? Not I. I wouldn't go back there for a million dollar paid right down."

Washisoton. Aug. 24. Representatives of the American Steamship line wero at the Navy Department to-day conferring with Acting Secretary Allen and the bureau chiefs regard ing tho return of the vessels St. Paul and St I,ouis to the company. The charter for their use by the Government requires the United States to put them into tho same condition they were when surrendered to tho Government, and tho question is ss to how best to carry out that inrt of the contract No conclusion was reached, but it Is probable that n lump sum will be paid to tho company in lieu of the depart incut restoring the vessels, and the company will take them at once. At the offices of the American line one of the clerks said that the St. Paul was at Cramps' shipyard. Philadelphia, having her guns dis mounted.

Aug. 2. -A rnassmoeting of cltlr. ns was held nt the National Theatre to night to arrange for a rousing welcome to the District of Columbia soldiers when they return from Hstitiago. where they arrived too late to do any fighting, hut whore they suffered nil tho privations of tho other soldiers In the field. It was not the fault of the District of Columbia soldiers that they did not fight, for they and their Colonel, Oeorge H. Harris, used every possible endeavor to get to the front in time for tho flghtinr. As It was they ley tn tho trenohes outside of Sant ago for several days before the surrender I of the city took place The citizens of the cap- j ltal, therefore, insist upon rezsrdlng them as heroes and they will get n warm and noisy ' welcome on their return from Camp Wikoff. At 1 the rnassmoeting to-night many distinguished people were present and llstined to a patriotic j programme of speochmaking and music, in cluding ths singing of the " Star Spangled Banner" by Mrs. Thomas C. Noyes. with a ' chorus nf the entire audience standing. Postmaster-General Charlea Emory Smith ! was the chief orator of tha evening. He made a characteristic speech, in which he stretched the truth of history a little In order to picture the District troops as being at Santiago, join ing In the heroic charge on the heights of San Juan and standing In the ranks that stormed the guns of Kit aney. and among other things ssid: . I " The whole country Is united now as it has not beon since the foundation of the republic. I It is a great inspiring truth that not since tho J days when Bunker Hill and Yorktown were reddoned with tho blood of Puritan nnd Cava lier in a common struggle for the Independence of the American colonies, and when Cieorge ; Washington nf Virginia and Alexander Hamil ton of New York sfood side by side In the con- i vention which framed the Constitution of tho new-horu nation, hove the people of tho North aud South moved hand In hand and heart to heart as now. "This war has obliterated all sectionalism. The Lees nnd the Wheelers and tho Butlers of tho South share the eump and draw the sword shoulder to shoulder with the Shatters, the Wilsons, aud tho Roosevotts of the North, and tho laurels of victory, gallantly won and worth- I ily worn In tho eyes of tho whole country, wronth the brows 01 Dewey of Vermont and Hobson of Alabama. As we hail tho victorious j fleet we remcmlicr with pride and cherish with 1 enthusiasm the blended glo-iesof Sampson of : New Jersey and Schley of Maryland. We are 1 witnessing the splendid spectacle, we are all a I vital and integral part of th magnificent, pa triotic rivalry which is cementing tho uulon of hearts and of hands In a new and firmer and more permanent grasp. "The war has been costly and still involves expenditures. But costly a it has been. It la worth more than nil it costs in this new and en nobling nwnkenlng of high national spirit. It has brought the youth of the plough and the youth ot tho avenue side by side in eiiual illus tration of manhood and of patriotism. It has lilted us out of our petty domestic factions and differences to a higher plane of worthy national aspiration. It has done much te dis sipate factious Issues and to destroy false and pernicious tendencies. It has given us a higher heroism and a truer perspective of the onward march of nations. It has n.ade the American name respected and honored throughout the world as It has never been I lore. " All war Is deplorable, but war has none the less been the pathway ol the wo.ld's progDess. Via Crucis, via Lucls tho way of blood Is the way of light. Through strife and blood new vistas have loeu opened nnd new oppor tunities have boon revealed. Six months ago we were pursuing the even course of peoeeful development. To-day thu momentous drama of war has brought us to a new situation and a new epoch. Our republic is advancing toa new aiyi commanding position among nations. Wo have been swept forward by the mighty and ir resistible tide of tranacembvit and unforeseen events, and. whether we would or not. wo can never drop back to whore we stood .before. New duties and new responsibilities have come to us. not so much by any calculation of our own as by tho overrating hand of an nll-wlso Providence, and wo must manfully and cour ageously face them."
