Night had fullen uprai thn camp, and except for the songs of tiio negro troopers who were holding au Impromptu convert and an occa aionil buret '' 'mighter from the other campe whore men wee gathered about the big open fires, the cavalry divialon wan silent. The writer's horse was picking his way gingerly across tho hillocks between the rough riders' camp and the lake, both he and his rider hav ing lmt thoir hearings, when the horse pricked UP his curs inquiringly and turned his head toward a iiuartor of tho compass whore could be heard a etrango rising nnd falling note, which presently resolved Itself into the tones of the hnrann voice. Urged onward, the horse with some rclucianco climbed the intervening hill. Below was a small, natural amphitheatre, and somewhere near tho eontro of It was the aouroe of a voico which proclaimed in oratori cal tones: 'Teller citizens. I nln't a voter In your free and glorious Htato. Out where I vote I have to ride fifty miles to the polls, through a region Principally inhabited by ki-yoteei an' plzon ' anakes an' tnrantellers an' such like measly I varmints. I nln't had the advantages that most of you gents bofore mo with clean collars and diamond pins in their neckties has had ; but I tell you. feller citizens. In a crisis like this I'm i with you.

Oroat cheering. I've knowed " " Ker-chug, ker-chug. ker-chug!" Interrupt ed a frog down in the swamp. "I'll attend to yon later, you white-livered rep-tyle." said the orator. " If you're coin' to cheer, che -r In the right place. Yes. gents of this Intelligent nn' well-meanin' assemblage, when Col.

Tumultous yells. I tell you what, fellers I mean my nobio feller citizens If I seen a man beforo me that I thought was goln' to vote any other way than fer the Colonel of my regiment, which I have tho honor to belong to. I'd draw a bond on him right from here. Great sensation." "Haw-haw I Hee-haw-haw I" snorted an army mule In the offing. "Prolonged laughter." nmended the orator. "You guys gents that ain't scon the old man in a scrap, can't appreciate the kind of a Christian an' scholarly gent that ho is. How any pop-eyed skunk can have tho nervo to get up an' make a race ng'in himisonoof them ! mysteries that had ought to be solved with a six-shooter. But what's the diff. anyway. That misguided guy'il never bo heard of again. He'll be swept under in a tidal wave an' frozo up In an Iceberg an' fell on hyan avalanche, an' Col. Roosevelt, our glorious candidate, will inaren on to victory with the American flag In one hand an' a Spanish scalp in tho other." At this point the auditor's horse neighed and the auditor himself furnished a round of ap- planse. "What's that?" inquired the speaker. "I was just goln' to put in some more loud cheers. Who are yuu r" Too writer explained and than askod: " Prac ticing 'up a little f ' "ep." -alil the rough ridor. " We're all goin' on the i-iuiiiii lor Teddy." The artillery Sergeant was giving one of his ! ran and highly prized lectures, with illustra- , lions from his OWIl experience, to an audicuco of respect I ul recruits. His text was that the . ... true soldier should hnow everything, and if there bhoOld lie anything he didn't know, to I conceal carefully bis lack of knowledge. "Now. look at me." hi said. " I'm in the i service more years than von boys has got hairs on ypur chins, andat that there UPS and conies I something now und again that 1 have to learn. ' 1" I admit to iny Buporlorflofllcora that I don't krowitv Not inc. 1 I, son that it's all A I) C to me, ami goes at it Mind till 1 learn it. When I I was down at Governors Island, not so many years ago. there was a now kind of fancy gun arrived nt Fort Hlooum, and the Colonel got or- I dors to send a man up there to learn the boys I tho use of it. "' Sergeant,' snys he to me, 'I want you to CO up tol'ort S'ociim to-morrow and drill the men thereon that llrown-Itobitisoii piece.' " Yes. sir,' Buys 1. saluting. 'Do you understand the mechanism of It?' says he. looking at me very sharp. " 'To be sure, sir.' says I. 'I seen them shoot- j ing with it at Fort Mcl'horson two years ago.' I "'That's very curious.' says he, 'seeing it's only been in uso in this country for less than a I year.' and he gave me the laugh. 'But you go I Hheud. anyway.' says he, "for if you can't put it through there h no man here thnt can.' " Vim may guess that I got on the train think ing mighty ha. d, for I'd picked up enough to know that the new artillery was no more like any other kin. i uf a gun than a pea shooter is' like a bow and arrow, and I was thinking I'd made a scrumptious disgrace of myself before i a gang of strange Johnnies. Talk about sol dier's luck if Ididn't run into myold Captain ' on the train, n man that always keeps up with , the latest thing in the artillery line. He asked ' me to sit down by hi :n and I said something about the new gun. That started him. Ho was all over the place with enthusiasm about it. i " 'But. slr.T says. ' That's a queer arrange- ' ment about the breech,' feeling him for a rise. I "'Queory' says he. 'Not a bit when you i understand it. Now, here: I'll draw it out for you,' and he flHhed out a bit of paper and a pencil and went to making diagrams. "That was just my meat, so I led him on Ir.mi one Hung to another until I'd tho whole arrangement down on paper, und when I i lapped eyes on the gun it was smiling at me I like an old friend. I put the men through a drill on that piece that innde em think I was a I past grand master of the whole business. And : the moral of this Is, Never say you don't know , a thing till you're sure you don't, for luck and . u man's brains will pull him through many a i hole with glory. Private McMauus, if you have ! the mate to that cigar in your pocket. I can use I It In my business. Thanks." i Buglers' school begins at any hour In the , morning and keens up intermittently all day. It is held on the high bluff west of the llfe eaving station, where the Signal Corps' out look keeps watch for Incoming transports. The Instructor is some master of the art of bugling who has found leisure to teach the aspiring youngsters the knaokofsundingoutupure, far reaching tone from the instrument, home times he lia-s three orfour pupils at once. some times ten or a dozen. In the latter ciibc the effect is something to bo remembered for a lifetime. By itself the bugle's note is a stir ring thing, hut when severul bugles operated by learners get together and pipe, quaver, bur ble, squawk mid blare in various measures, it is too stirring for tho average man. and in spires a desire In his soul to -tir himself to some spot wheru the niiisie cannot be heard. Tills is a matter of difficulty. A bugle nolo earrius almost as far .is a two-cent iMjstage stump. From u mile or two across tile hills tho effect is unearthly, par ticularly if there is a gusty wind blowing and the notes como by snatches. Suddenly thero will be the relief of silence, then the olarion notes evoked by the expert bugler ring out iilone. an example which all the rest copy Im mediately, giving a rcct!tion of the distress ing niekof. i r the spot where the lesson is going on one bears something like this: " Tom. hold your bugle up. Don't shoot at the ground, What's the mutter with your face, Slue. Hot a pain? It won't help the music any and it'll spoil your troop formation it you sciew up your fuoe that way. Get your lips in there, you private wlih the long nose. You're not playing on n conih now. All together now. the a'-seui lily. Oh! that's hadl You play like a hunch of Scotch bagpipers!" . After a few experiences of this kind a ma jority of the aspirants to musical honors drop out. convinced t hui their oral formation is not fitted to the bugle. Those who perseveres Hi ly become protlcleiit. are dismissed from pri mary class with direction to practice assidu ously, and. forming quartets mining them selves for mutual aid und correction, they All ihenlrwith harmonies. It is notonly the be ginners who practice UUo every afternoon a masterly blower of the bugle climbs down tho cliff to tho beach beyond lieu.

Winn the lengthening shadow warn him that soon the other buglers will bo blowing the sup per call he climbs (he cliff, und at the summit, r.ilaiuL- lis bugle once more, sends the golden Pi. oils in penlon peal over the darkening ocean. a good-night song to the sun. Next door to Hungry Joe's restaurant on iiicfcci -on s Hill a photographer has started in business and is making all kind of uiooey be kides remises or more. From all quarters of the c.iiiip his clients dome, bringing their h'nes. arms and accoutrements, and he has more orders to go to .litre rHt damps aud make l Ictnres thereof than heeau iiosslbly Jill. The negro troopers are hi best euatomors. Ah soon a they learned thut there was s man with a UBedxsfy'acccut ou Urn sesond syllable) over on the hill they set nut for the place id large number to sec If it were true. "Sit right down mid I'll II x you up." said the I photographer to the first group thnt came. I " Well, I guess not." was the response. "(lit 1 took in theso lieuli ol' clo'es? .Tea' wait till I ' come back." It was so In every ense.

They consider themselvos In the i best trim when they took toughest, and a few i groups such as ha e in-eii taken hero might be ' useful in diplomacy as a warning toother na i lions not focuguge rashly in war with us. The ' nlr hero seems to lie peculiarly conducive to i good photography, and uiiiuyof the landscape 1 views taken hero are singularly fine speci mens. From here to New York the returning soldier ' goes through a course of almost continuous i ovation. Except where woods border the rnll 1 road mi either side there is sure to be some en thusiastic Long Islander shouting greetings at him from an adjacent roadway or patriotic householder waving n flag ut him from nn up per window. In the village there Is a never falling crowd to give him an enthusiastic re ception. Custom has not staled the sight of the soldier hoys for the villagers. With the same enthusiasm which they exhibited at the beginning of the homegolng, they now crowd the stations and cheer the boys In blue. To be Hiiro, it's n pretty rusty blue in most cases, und sometimes it isn't blue nt all. but brown; but the dingier the uniform the more heartfelt tho goetlng to It. At the station near the "amp the military enthusiasm takes a very practical form. Women with good things to oat and drink board the train and rush through the cars dispensing their bene fices to all who wish them, while others stand outside and pass flowers and fruit up through the windows. In some of the towns this is I done through regular relief organizations; in j others by private and individual charity. In the enrlier days when the lioys were scut away ' from hereill fed, or not fed at all. for the long and wearisome journey, man v of them being In reality too sick to travel, there Is uo doubt that this charily saved many lives. There Is not such necessity now for the foods, but tho soldiers receive them with no less gratitude. Keceiitlva motherly looking woman, assisted by two young men, endeared herself to ono ; earful of soldiers by currvlng a case of beer through the car and giving a bottle to each man. When she had returned to the platform a private hailed her: 'Hay, mti'iiml You lady that gave us tho beer? I'd like to give you a souvonir." Ho tore the Camp Wlkoff badge from his hat and tossed it to her. Anothersoldiercut a but ton from his coat and tossed it out. A third threw her a " lucky stone" with the hole in the middle. "That went through Cuba with me." he called. " There's a Mauser bullet I took off a dead Spaniard at San Juan," shouted another, and the woman dodgod the bullet. A shower of keepsakes of many kinds fol , lowed, enough to make up u highly Interesting I war cabinet for the recipient. A benevolent j woman at Quoguo.justaday or two ago. carried , into a car full of soldiers a basket containing a tine assortment of wholesome food, but was lib-appointed to find that nolmdy seemed to I want it. Finally she npproached a young sol i dier who was leaning hack, in his seat and of fered him a piece of roast chicken and a bottle or milk. "Thank you. ma'am." said the young fellow, i setting them down in the Heat beside him. 1 "Are you feeling too sick to eat them now?" I she asked. "Trya little of the milk. It will do you good." "No. ma'am." he said; "I don't feel too sick to eat. I'll try." " Poor fellow." said the woman compassion ately. "Hare you had anything to eat this morning?" I " Yes 'in." " What did yon have ?" " Well or eggs and coffee and pie and cake nnd ginger ale and preserves and an orange nnd some toast and a piece of chocolate cake and some con. bread and" " Then why did you accept this ?" she asked with some severity. "Well, ma'am. I saw nobody else was takine any and I didn't want you to be disappointed." ' You should have left it." she said, "for those who need it. if you don'." " Bless you. ma'am I" said i ho young fellow ; 'we don't any of us need It. Fact Is, we're just bursting with all the stuff we've put into our selves in the last week." Besides those who come to give along the way. there are those who oome to beg. Scores of small boys line the station platforms and make the air resound with their unceasing cries of: " (limine a Mauser bullet, Mr. Soldier." " Nnh. don't give him none. He's got three a 'ready. (Jive it to me. I ain't got none." " Say, I'll give you en apple and a place of gum tor one. As long as the train runs slow these urchins chase it up with their clamor. The soldiers are good natured and generous, and many a smnll boy has a Mausor to add to his collection I of miscellanies nnd eventually to be traded off. probably, lor a new style top or a postage stamp or a rare bird's egg. WINTER HOSPITAL FOB TROOPS. It Will Be on the Southern Coast Condition of the Campi. Washington. Sept. 12. A board of officers has been detailed by the Surgeon-General of tho army to examine sites for a large winter hospital in the South. It Is the intention to make this hospital of service for the siok sol diers who will be brought to the United States from time to time. It will probably be located at some place on tho coast, and the opinion prevails that It will be at Charleston or Savan nah. The hospital will he constructed of lum ber, and will accommodate from 1.200 to 1.500 patients at one time. It will be similar to the hospital now nearing completion at Hampton Boads. The hospital arrangements nt Camp Wlkoff were made the subject of a roport to the Surgeon-General by the chief surgeon at the camp to-day. This telegram was received: "The few patients remaining here tempora rily under treatment will bo perfectly comforta ble In the altered wards now being prepared The tents are taken off. the floor widened two feet and the plot raised two feet. There are sliding windows and good ventilation and three medium baseburner stovos in each. Two of these are well under way. There is a big forco of carpenters and plenty of lumber. Every thing is ordered, and in three or four days four of these wards will be occupied. They will ac commodate fifty patients each and four will be. 1 think, more than enough. " The Shi iinecock took about 300 to-day. The Beller will take. 'J(X) from the division hospitals here to-morrow and the Shlnnecock will take .'Kit) more at 1 o'clock P. M. on Tuesday. F.herl said this evening he had less than 100 patients left, und he is directed not to receive any more from any source. The only influx of sick will bo from the camps to the general hospital. whore all typhoid COSM have to be sent.

I In n Suboeon-Oenebai, : I have an ini- presHion that at this time It may be of Interest I to you to have a line on a linesman's view of the sanitary condition of tho Fourth Army Corps. We are camped in an attractive, open valley, the treuh, cool, invigorating air of the lliint-ville bills steadily winning our poor en- i feebled men back to life and strength after the ' i poisonous, fever-laden swamps of Tampa.

I cannot too ! strongly express my gratitude to you for the : extraordinary success with which you supplied the corps with doctors, immuiies, nurses and , medical storos, the more extraordinary when yon reflect how conflicting and unlooked for oiders fired our men. with llttlo time for prep i ariiiiiiii. into unlooked-for places.

Sept. ' 13. The dotentlon hospital has reduced the number of Its patients to about eighty-five. I Major Ebert expects that in the course of two j weeks only twenty-five will remain, not allow ing for denths. The men now left are nearly all regarded as too sick to be moved at present. Major Harding of tho engineers begnn to-day to frame In two wards and the mess hall for their shelter. There were 4,'8 patients In the hospital when orders were given to clear It j out. Since then 20 have returned to duty, 110 have received furloughs, and 200 have been transferred to other hospitals. Some of the doctors, notably Dr. Boyer. who has about thirty serious cases in wards 1 and F, have refused positively to sign removal permits for any more men. Mrs. Gernldlne Bailey, di rector of the National Belief I-eague, considers that many men have already been sent from the dotentlon hospital who were not fit to go. On Frldny about 200 were sent on tho Shlnne cock. nnd on Saturday came orders to send 100 more' She says that sixty-nine were soloctod and thut Col. Forwood then went through the wards to pick out thirty-one others. Miss Hat tie Hawley. a daughter of Gen. Haw ley, and representing the Soldiers' Rest of Washington, reports a conversation between Col. Forwood and Major Ebert In which she says the Colonel said he would annul any doc tor's contract on the spot it he refused to sign the removal permita. Yesterday, Mrs. Bailey says, some of the forty men selected to go up on the Shlnnecock protested against being moved, and begged to bo allowed to wait a day or two longer. Many of them were afraid of being seasick. All were weak and most of them were carried on board the boat on stretchers. Nearly all. exceptthose from the detention hospital, were able to walk and care for themselves. Mrs. Bailey says. She does not wish to blame those In charge of the detention hospital for what she consider this dangerous hasto. She says tho care and treat ment all have received there have been excel lent in overy way. The general hospital has about 550 patients to-day. One hundred and twenty-five sick Mas sachusetts men woro sent direct to Boston on the hospital ship Belief to-day. and 275 i other sick and convalescents also left camp. : Orders were issued to-day to sond several ambulances to the station about 5 o'clock each night to gather up sick men there who were intending to leave camp and did not. or who were unadvlnedly out of the hospital. Some of these will be kept over night at the detention hospital, and if they develop fever or sickness will bo transferred to the general hospital tho next morning. There were six deaths to-day. In the gen eral hospital, James F. McTiernan. ixunpany G, Ninth Massachusetts, typhoid, and Louis Brown. Company D. Twentieth Infantry, ty phoid. In the detention hospital. Frank Tlnk ham. Company F. First Illinois, typhoid: Rob ert F. Harrison, Company E, First Illinois, dys entery, and George Glcason. Company L. Ninth Massachusetts, dysentery. In the First Divis ion hospital, John Qulnn, Company G. Tenth Infantry, typhoid. The rough riders are preparing to be mus tered out to-morrow, nnd Col. itoosevolt will probably leave camp about Thursday. Their I equipment has all been turned In. There is a , feeling amongthem that thoy have been turned out of tho service a little more rapidlv than Other volunteers. Col. Mills, tho mustering officer, was ready to muster them out beforo Col. lloosevelt had been informed when that , act was to be performed. Lieut. Curr of Vir ginla has announced his intention of going to ' Cuiro. Egypt, nnd enlisting in the British Army. The following regiments are now encamped here: Or infantry, the First. Heeond. Third.

The 301st and 303,1 Regiments Aro There and the ;o:l Is JUxpeeted. Habbihbubo. Pa.. Sept. 12. There was joy in the camp of the Third New York to-day when the order came to start for home. The first train got away ubout li o'clock this evening. Col. Hoffman will review the regiment at El iiiiiM. The Third has been anxious to quit the service and the men blame the officers for this sentiment. They say that the regiment would have gone to the Philippines save for tho action of the officers. V Two oilier New Toik regiments have already arrived at Cump .Meade and a third is expected ' to-morrow. The 201st. Col. H. W. Hubbel! j commanding, arrived from Camp Black on I Sunday and now occuptos the ground vacated I by the Sixth Pennsylvania. It Is one of tho j best positions in the camp. One private snid ' to-day that the food furnished here is much better than that supplied at Camp Black, and that, generally speaking, the conditions are much better. Col. Hubbel! was much pleased with the conduct of his men on the way to Camp Meade. There was no disorder or drunkenness. Col. Corby of the Fourth Mis souri Is In oommund of the Second Brigade, Second Division, to which the 201st has been ussigned. Private William Hull, Company D. 201st New York, died suddenly In his tent to-day and his body was sent to Ills home at 5U4 West 120th street. It Is believed that ho died of heart dis ease. The 203d New York arrived this morning and litis been brigaded with the Fifteenth Pennsyl vania and the Second West Virginia. It takes the ground of the Third New York, n most de sirable camp near Second Division headquar ters. All the Now York soldiers are satisfied and requisitions have been made fortheirover eoiils and other winter equipment. They ex pect to go to Cuba and are not sorry. The 202d New York will probably reach Camp .Meade about Thursday. It will bo brigaded with the Third Connecticut and Fourteenth Pennsylva nia. A member of Gen. Gruham's staff said to-day thut the soldiers would remain hero until cold weather. Gen. Graham is organizing a third division and when Gen. Young get here he will lie placed in coiiimund ot one of the three. The Sixteenth Pennsylvania battalion will leave for Now V rk to-morrow afternoon, and on Wednesday will sail for Porto Bico. Tills even ing the Sixth Signal Company left for Montauk point to join tin' others of the corps which aro booked for Cuba. All the members of the signal companies have been given to under stand that they will bo expected to nerve out the terms of thoir enlistment. Surgeon-General Sternberg has ordered an investigation of the death ofu private in the Tenth Ohio, to whom medical attention Is said to have been refused by a surgeon w ho thought he was homesick when he wusdyiugof typhoid. On Sept 28 the monument of the Seventh West Virginia will lie unveiled at Gettysburg, and the Second West Virginia, at Camp Meudu, has received permission to take part in the ceremonies. The regiment will inarch to tho battlefield. Gov. Atkinson and other State offi cers will take part in thn ceremony. Gen. Graham went to New York this after noon, but will return to-morrow. He was ac companied by Lieut. Somerull of his stuff. It is now well settled that Gen. Graham's corps will be sent to Cuba, and hlsquurtcrmuateis are working overtime tilling requisitions ot itm regimental commanders for overcoats, woollen blankets, and other winter equipment. Last night t lie waul her was cold, and many of the regiments which have not yet received heavy uudcM letlung and overcoat were unable to keep warm, incer orders from corps head quarters all me tents have been placed be tween the tents -of the line officers an I tho head of tho company streets, so that the oflloer may supervise the cooking and the messing of the men. Much of the trouble in the military camps has been due to bad cooking. ssnmattasaamaamammmmaMa CVRAIT rrATTOKALIHT PARTI. II OrganlintloB Started In This Clty-Con-greaa Called On to Redeem Ire Promise. A number of prominent Cubans at present in this olty have started a movement for the organization of tho Cuban Nationalist party. A meeting was held at 57 West Twenty-flfth street on Saturday and a manifesto was read, reviewing the present situation and setting forth the necessity of constituting a new par ty, which, without reference to previous politi cal nfnllntion. should bring together nil the valuable elements of tho population of tho Isl and Interested In Its well-being end prosper ity for the purpose of reconstructing tho Gov ernment In conformity with the spirit of tho resolution passed by tho Congress of the United States on April 10. After referring to the military occupation of the island by the United States and explaining that this condi tion is only a transitory one. the manifesto proceeds : "In laying down that fact, as a fundamental one. we must not forget the debt of gratitude which we owe to the United States, nor the moral responsibility which the United States has assumed beforo the world, appearing as the sponsor of the people of Culm and of their capability to develop and flourish in peace un der the beneficent Influence of justice and lib erty. There Is no incompatablllty whatever between the duties anil feelings ot tho Ameri can people and our own dutlos and hidings. On the contrary, thoy fully harmonize, since they emanate In both cases from the same ex alted Ideal of civilization and progress. "We havo fought for the principle which the American people havo laid down as the founda tion of public law in America, namely. that those who govern derive thoir just powers from the consent of tho governed.

MI$M R ARtOlt HA T THE SKEDT THERE CAN BE EASILY BELIEVED. She Wonts No Ono Blamed for Her Oatra elsm from Havana Her Praise for the Mules That Accompanied Her Expedi tion The President's Niece Writes of the Diet Kitchen at Camp Hobaan. The Red Cross Society received from Clara Barton yesterday a telqgram In which ehe an nounced thnt she had arrived nt Washington nnd would go at once to Glen Echo, her coun try home. As this is nenr Washington, It Is presumed that Miss Barton Intends to rest for a day or two before conferring with tho Presi dent and the State Department concerning the Cuban relief plans. It Is probable that this conference will be held very shortly, as upon It will depend the future movements of the San Antonio, which Is loaded and Is now wait ing to sail for Havana. A letter received yes terday from Miss Barton when at Egtnont Key says: "I have given a statoaiont through the press relating to the conditions of our leaving Ha vann, which, under tho circumstances, was In the opinion of all of us the thing to do. Ha vana Is not nn open city, as is reported, in oue sense, and yet In another It is. Spain holds the entire government of the city, and, natu rally. It is open just as far as they want it to be. This is only what any nation would do under the cireuinstnncos, and learning tho true condition ot things I thought it just to our Government to take the course I did. nnen me commissions have had tlmo to or feet thoir negotiations It will bo tho proper time for outside nctlon. Tho relief or the isl and west o' Santiago province, whon obstruc tions are removed, can be made a very quick thing. It seemed to us especially easy, there not being a single town of any considerable size between San Antonio and Cienfuegos iu which we had not personal acquulntnnces and parties ready from tho acquaintance of tho old relief to take the work up simultaneously and accomplish It literally at onoe. It was the I general opinion of every member of the staff and party that, with permission to act, suit able water transportation and the supplies which were already thero and would naturally come, four weeks need not leave a hungry person on the island. I name this in order to show you how easy a thing It will be to fin ish that work when the diplomatic arrange ments are completed. "Our cargo by tho Clinton, as you will un derstand, was only a small affair ot odds and ends, having been drawn upon from first to last by the reconcentrados, refugees and the United States Army alternately. We have un loaded them here, sent the Clinton home, as her charter was expiring, will to-morrow take tho supplies to Tampa and store them under charge of Dr. Purtello. subject to your direc tion. Tho mules, good, brave fellowB. woro returned in perfect, condition, having noth ing to complain of but too close cnnllnement. Tho opportunity for their use would have been abundant in Cuba if we had landed in Havana. Although never of any absolute use to us, there was still comfor', in having them: one could ulmost gather strength from the sight of their great, smooth bodies nud honest, pa tient faces, i always thanked you for them und trust there will not be much loss in them. "The .Morse is loaded with tho supplies of the Port Victor, not one of which we were ever able to reach during our stay in Santiago. Mr. Conklin remains closely by them, will watch them faithfully and sail them where you direct. I hnve given this direction by de spatch two or three times, and hope it has I reached, although communications in this ' part of Hie country aro very uncertain. "I hope the public will be reasonable enough not to attach any personal matter or slight to ! the Red Cross or to anybody else in our leav ing Havana. All thnt I have said has been so I plain and calm und altogether kiud That it j would be sheer love of sensntion and a de- ' sire to abuse and lye abused that could make them regard or represent It as anything but n puiely I'lipi'-maiic. national step .having for its i entire basis the proper relations between GnvernmenlB and a.-, a Governmental action out and out. and I have no fears but our Gov ernment will see it in that light nnd sustain the action." Another Interesting letter was received by the Red Cross yesterday from Miss Junia Me Klnlcy, a niece of President McKinloy. '. he latter undertook a short time ago the work of establishing u diet kitchen at Camp Hobson. with Red Cross assistance. Part of her letter is as follows: "After serving in our kitchen all day Satur day. I learned that nurses were needed for the typhoid fever ward at Camji Hobson. unci 1 offered my services until nurses could come from Atlanta. 1 assisted through Saturday night und part of Sunday, and then learned of need for drugs, which 1 ordered bv telephone from Atlnuta. I sent out a trained nurse to day, hoping that her services will lie paid for I by the Red Cross. The kitchen will lie kept open as lung us there is need, whl.di will lie several weeks yet. Eight hundred men left ou Saturday for Montauk Point, but the chief sur geon of tho Gulf Division says the hospital corps (now about thirty-two) will remain al Camp Hobson some time, as most of the pa tients under their charge urejfever eases, i have been assured by officers, patients and nurses I that the kitchen lias been a blessing.

After the con valescent patients leuve the nurses come in. The meals are sent In to hospital wards at stated hours. Dp to last night 1 had served 1.170 meals, according to tickets sent iu. This does not. include all meals furnished to nurses. Nearly all the officers of two regiments ordered away on Saturday took breakfast In the kitchen, and all seemed to enjoy their morning ineul. which consisted of toast, eggs, cereals, tea. coffee und ham. Our milk supply Is from ten to fifteen gallons dally. Tho men nre so grateful for whul is being done for them und seem to enjoy their meuls ho much that ray week's service ns manager of tho Red Cross kitchen has been one of great hap piness lo me.

At both of these hospitals nurses maintained by the auxiliary are employed, and Mrs. Cow diu s visit was with the object of gelling re ports of their work. Mrs. Cowdin said yes terday that nil the patients at Fort Wadsworth. as a result or tho untiring labors of both nurses and Burgeons, had improved to a remarkable degree. Many of tho patients at the hospital at Fort wadsworth came from thcX'oncho and the Seneca, and the remarkable remits attained In Ihe'cure of them Is shown by the fact that the first neat h nt the hospital occurred on Sun day. Twenty-five Red Cross nurses are em ployed nt the hospital, und all the patients tes tified to their untiring devotion. The condi tions at. tho hospital Mrs. Cowdin reported us admirable, aiwcful attention being paid to the dietary kitchen. "At Fort Hamilton," Mrs. Cowdin said, "the dietary kitchen is in ohorge of Mrs. Misehe. one ofloiir.'nurses.und to it is due in u great part the wonderful improvement in the condition of the men.

GOOD VKH8 FOR NAVAL OFFICERS. Secretary Long Proposes That None Shall Sutler by the Promotion of Others. Boston. Sept. 12. John D. Long, Secretary of the Navy, looking as fresh and rugged as a I farmer, passed through Boston this morning on his way to Washington, whither he had been summoned by a telegraphic despatch. Some thing he said while waiting tor his carriage at the railway station will please many officers in the navy. "What will be the efTect of your proposed bill relating to promotions in the navy upon the men already promoted for gallantry?" he was asked. "The fact Ib." he replied, "that before leav ing Washington I directed the Judge Advocate General to prepare two bills. The first related to future promotions and contained a pro vision which made it possible to promote a man without at tho same time practicallv de grading all his juniors. The second bill deuls with the officers who have suffered In numbers and otherwise by tho promotions already made, and alms no to provide that they shall receive the promotion which would have come to them at u certain tlmo had no exceptional promotions been made. I think It can be so arranged that these officers to whom oppor tunities for distinction did not come shall re ceive their due promotions without loss In point of time through the promotions of others in other words, thoy will save their numbers." Aid Needed for Soldiers' Families. The following appeal Is made by the Soldiers' Families' Protective Association: .. .,. New VoBg. Sept. 12. To Iht Public : While gratefully acknowledging the generous help already extended to it. nnd recognizing the very liberal and patriotic support given to the soldiers through the Rod Cross, the War Itellcf Association and other noble liodles of citizens, taxing heavily the gonoroslty of our lieople. Ihls association is compelled to make this further upiieal for funds to earryonlts work of assisting the needy families of volun teers from this city, from over IK)0 of which ap plications huvo been received to date. The impression that the necessity for relief in such cases ended with the cessation of hostilities is erroneous. Such necessity will exist while the regiments from this olty remain In sorvlce. and even after they have beon mus tered out some time must inevitably elapse bofore tho breadwinners of these famillos can ' secure employment. Tho Onvornment should provide, and accord ing to official statements Is providing for tho soldiers themsolvos. and some private contri butions may with advantage bo applied lo thn assistance of those ut homo for whom the soldier.
