Although tliequarantino rules prevented the Bed Croas Society from being in constant at tendance at the detention hospital, yetwekept It abundantly sup'led with delicacies and quite often with necessities. Many tons of articles vera supplied to it. including eanncj goods. Hjaniaa, whiskey, champagne, sheets, pillows, Hr. Howard Townsend. the Bed Cross agent, neinf tho necessity of trained women nurse II tie general hospital, offered twenty to tho Oorernment about Aug. 10, their salaries and til their expenses to be paid for by the Bed Croaa Society. Secretary Alger promptly di rected the acceptance of this offer, although in lifting that the Government should pay the tunes' expenses and salaried. Since that time litre have been as many aa 140 nurses In the hospital at once, besides about jlO Bisters of Charity. These women nurses kave uniformly conducted themselves with de corum and propriety In camp and their pres raee here baa undoubtedly saved tho lives of 9 Buy patients. All the nurses except the SiR tenwrre furnished through tho instrumental It; of the Fed Cross aided by Dr. Anita McGee of Washington. The division hospitals were . eataMIMied later in the history of the camp. and they also were supplied with provisions, dsiracie. medical stores and instruments- Or oe Bed Cross, who also supplied them with Women nurses.

Is a boat 142 feet in length and. was furnished for the use of the Red Cross Society by the Bed Cross Belief Committee in Vv York. Bho is admirably fitted for carrying a small number of sick people. It was offered to the Government by the Bed Cross Relief Committee and has been In steady use as s hospital ship, conveying fif teen invalids at a rime to the various hospitals along the Connecticut coast and in New York eity. After the first confusion incident to the estab lishment of this camp the Red Cross extended lis field of work so as to include a visit to the regimental hospitals, whleb were soon discov ered to be In great need of equipment and food suitable for the sick, particularly In the in , fintry divisions. The assistant agent. Dr. Brewer, and Mr. Samuel Parrish of Southamp ton. V l., devoted themselves particularly to B daily visits tothe regiments and were able ma teru.ly to assist the regimental surgeons in Uviir discouraging work, hampered as thoy were by the lack of medical stores and hospital equipments. The Auxiliary for t he Mnintenanoe of Trained jutsea sent to Camp Wikoff Mrs. Willard. a jwary expert. This lady, in conjunction with tn Massachusetts olunteer Aid Association i fad with the assistance of Dr. Prescott. estab lished diet kitchens in tho various hospitals andimpphe 1 the patients in tho wards with tub satisfactory light diet that the Govern Brnt agreed to pay all expenses in connection ith diet kitchens.

Autonomlata Trying to Retain Power Pab 11c Opinion Much Divided. Havana, Oot. 12. The Autonomist Cabinet is making effort to remain ln power after the evacuation of Cuba by the Spanish troop. A secret meeting of Autonomists waa held three days ago and it was resolved to send a Com missioner to Washington duly empowered Ito confer with President McKlnley. They are draughting a document that will be presented to the President and is intended to convince him that the Autonomists are the best people in the island, notwithstanding that they sided with Gen. Weyler and backed him In hi cruel policy of extermination. At the same time Seflors Galvez and Govin. President and Secretary of the Department of Justice, are organizing committees all over the Island to control the elections which" they believe will take place to constitute a stable Government Concealing the fact that they are trying to communicate with Washington, they declare that the Autonomists are strong supporters now of absolute independence. In a word, these gentlemen have many irons in the fire at once, all to enable them to keep their profitable offices. 'On the other side, the insurgent Govern ment hopes to be recognized by the United States. Its member accuse Gen. Caltxto Garcia of treason, and there la'no doubt that could they capture him he would be hanged. Garcia's Commissioners to the insurgents ln the west have not met with a kind reception. Though they have convinced the sensible part of the revolutionists of the wisdom of keeping quiet and letting the Americans control the island, they have aroused the indignation of the rabid independents. The Spanish, on the other side, are much divided. The small shopkeepers are all par tisans of -absolute independence. They fear American competition if the island la an nexed. The rich Spanish merchants and bankers and the Spanish and Cuban sugar estate owners are all annexationists. They are eager to see tho American flag wave over Morro Castle as a guarantee of protection to their lives and properties. . Such 4s the real political situation here a real hornet's nest, in a word. Meanwhile the country is ruined, famine spreads and deci mates the population, and no one seems to realize that not in politics, but in work, lies the salvation of the country. La Zucha 1 be coming more unpopular day by day. simply because it advises people to work for the re construction of the land and let politics alone. The majority of the population covets office. Instead of trying to work independently of the Government. When the immense salaries of the officials are reduced, as they ought to be, and the administration Is purified, there will be great disappointment here. Thb Bun's correspondent has asked many sugar estate owner their opinion of the best way of keeping peace in the island. They ail agree about one thing, that the Cuban Army. after a careful selection of men. will form the best police if placed under the orders of intelli gent American officers. That can be accom plished with ease only If the Cuban are treat ed politely by the American officers. If 100 offioSra who inspire confidence among the Cubans are sent here, and the Cuban under stand that.these officer are their friend, they will ail b the best auxiliaries of the United States Government. That opinion has been expressed by sixty of the most important sugar planter of Havana and Matanza provinces. WAS 1811 AR ASSOCIATION. Organisation of Army Ofllear to Kreot a Memorial to Their Head Comrades. Wmt Point. Oot. 15. An association of offi cers of the regular army, consisting of both graduate and non-graduate of the Military Academy, ha been organized at Weat Point Military Academy, having for its purpose the erection of a suitable memorial to the officer and enlisted men of the regular army who were killed in battle or who died of wounds received or disease contracted while ln active service ln the field against the enemy during the war with Spain. This association is known aa the Spanlab War Memorial Association, and is organized and operated on lines identical with those of the Battle Monument Association of the civil war, which ha recently erected and dedicated an Imposing monument at West Point to the officer and men of the regular army who fell In that war. The fund for that monument wern obtained by voluntary sub scriptions, and It I proposed ln the present In stance to invite contribution from all who may be interested In the work. The name of every subscriber will be published ln a commemo rative book or pamphUt describing the history of the undertaking. ,M The following ax, tfa offlorm: Pre dent. Major-Gen.

The Bed Cross supply depot w moved last week from 552 Broadway to the Woodbrldge building at William and John street, and on ' this account the meeting of the Supply Com mittee which was to hav been held on Wed nesday had to be postponed for a week. At this meeting the winter work of the society will be mapped out It has been about decided to abandon th system of auxiliaries, which ha been such a uecea throughout the summer, a there I no longer much need of their service. Moat of the auxiliaries have besnad vise dofthls. and already eleven' hare disbanded. Nearly all have expressed a willingness to reorganize during th winter, provided their assistance I required. Auxiliary No. 17 of Pittsburg, which was the largest of all the uxll larle. may de cide to retain Its organization for sometime. Last week six large oases of supplies were re ceived here from the auxiliary. Two large shipments of supplies war made during the week to Porto Bico.

The Manila corre spondent of the Hong Kong Preu. under date of Sept 3. gives the following facts in regard to the illicit traffic in arms: "I have reason to believe that certain per onsaHCMlllnaArma to the natives, which tho latter may use to fight against tho Americans later. The most remarkable feature of this trade is that the Americana are sending down these arms from Hong Kong and Chins, Sev eral men. known to be engaged ln this kind of work, have just turned up ln Manila and no body seems to know just how they got down her. The supposition Is that th vessel put into Oublde port where she could unload rifles, ammunttlon and other material without being discovered by the American authorities, "From this landing point these men made their way Into Manila, where they will watch the situation and make arrangements to bring more arms. The United States authorities here and at, other places will do well to keep their eyes open if they would prevent the na tives from becoming equipped with sufficient weapons to carry on a protracted and severe guerrilla warfare against either the United States or any other power ln the Philippines. Arms will bo brought surreptitiously to these islands in great numbers if the movement I not stopped at once." Another correspondent under date of Sept 7, dwells on the tremendous change wrought by American occupation. He says: "Formerly life and property were not safo day or night; now everyone is secure. The river is full of Comoanla Maritima steamers, which are now compelled to fly a neutral flag, while all is alive in the bay. Up to the pres ent the Americans have not moved tbelr out posts beyond Pakko and tho districts within two or three miles of Manila, the result being that tba rebel troops begin where the others leave off. Unfortunately for them, the rebels are now beginning to find It is not all beer and kittles. They anticipated being In Manila, occupying .the houses of rich Spaniards and revelling in the spoils of war. But this has all been knocked In the bead. The insurgent leaders tlnd it difficult to get money with which to pay their follower. To raise funds the rebel chiefs collect a tax ou every native cart ( entering their line and passing through to Manila. They have also instituted a poll tax far heavier than that enforced by the Span iards, and which was the primary cause of the rebellion. The Spanish and American sol diers appear to bo friendly, the American saying they wish they had been fighting the rebels Instead of young Spaniards, torn away from fields against their will." The American and. German bluejackets re cently had shore leave at the same time ln Hong Kong. They painted the town red. One big 1 ankee tar roamed around in Queen' road with trousers and. sleeves rolled up, asking ln a loud, thick voloe. Where are these mailed fists?" He soon came across some Germans and there was a lively scrap. BOLDIJER'3 LETTER FILED AS A WILL. It Was Policeman jEbermann's. Who Fought Among the Bough Blders at Santlao.

HOLD OS TO THE PHILIPPINES. Forak.r Says That Any Other Treaty Will Be Amended by the Senate. Buffalo. Oct. 15. Senator Foraker of'Ohlo made a speech ln Husio Hall last night in favor of territorial expansion. He served no tice that If the Paris Peace Commission re turned with a treaty which did not give to the United States the whole of the Philippines the treaty would be amended In the Senate. He said: "Now there is nothing so true under the sun as a remark President McKlnley made yester day that trade follows the flag. Let us hoist the flag over the Philippines and make them the base of commercial operations in China, and we will have the advantage over all the rest of the world. I want to fee the day when the United Statea will say, with England and Ja- I pan. that tho markets of China shall be open to all or open to none The Philippine Island have come to us at an opportune moment, and I want the flag to stnv there. If the Peace CommlHtron brings bnck a treaty by which we are to hold the Pbilipriines it will be ratilled In short order, but if It brings bock any other kind of a treaty the Senate wiU take occasion to add a few lmportunt and pertinent amend ments." Sneaking of the war. he said: "An interview with one of the members of the Spanish Peace Commission says that the pretension that Spain wanted a war with the United States is all a mistake, for the reason that the United States had long coveted the Spanish colonies. I want to deny the statement of the Spanish Commissioner that we went to war because we coveted tho colonies of Spain. TIiIh country never went to war for such a pnrnose, and, so far as Cuba was concerned, we did not pur pos to interfere In the government of that Isl and except SO far as the claims of humanity demanded. We wore to put an end to Spanish misrule and brutality ln Cuba, drive Spain from the island, and permit the Cubans to es tablish their own government and run it with out interference. And I want to declare here that that programme will be religiously and t'oni-oii'iiti'iuHly carried out. (Cheer..), "That docs not mean, however, that Cuba will never" become a part of the United State. On tho contrary, I am convinced that before long the love and gratitude which tho Cuban will have for us by reason of our intervention In their behalf will lead them to petition us to take them into th fold. And I believe that when Cuba comes knocking at our door, as aawall did. we will open the door and give her e glad hand. Cheer. Our soldiers and allora.not only at Manila, out at Santiago, won Imperishable honor tnd glory for the dear old flag.

ARMORY SENT FOR POLICE. rOT.VSTEKRS OF THE SIS Til BESIEGE THE BARKED DOOR, locked Oat for Staying Away After Roar at Night, They Threaten to Break la and Start a Wardanee When They Get In Police Hustle Thorn Oat Again Speedily. Since the volunteers of the Ninth New York returned to this city on furlough they have, through the courtesy of Col. Japlia of the 100th Regiment, been allowed to use ths Ninth Regiment Armory both night and day. and a number of the men. as well as some of the of ficers, have been sleeping at the armory. They were given to understand, however, that the armory was a military post! and that strict order must prevail, and furthermore that those desiring to sleep ln the armor, must report there not later than, 11 o'clcok at night, after which hour lights were cut out and the build ing closed. ThMP.rules were fairly lived up to for a short tUBB, when some of the boys be gan to straggle In at all hours, and one of the principal offender wo a Lieutenant of the regiment. When Col. Japha heard how the courtesies of the armory were being abused he issued an order for all the men to report at the armory not later than 11 P. M under penalty of being looked out tor the night. On Thursday night, after the armory had long.been closed there, came a pounding at the door, and the electrio bell was rung continuously. At the same time there came threats that unless the door was opened it would be broken in. The up roar was caused bv the company of night owl that had been specially warned by the order issued by Col. Jaoha, Janitor Hill went to the door and shouted through the heavy oak panels that the disturbance should cease. ' "Come out here and we'll make a disturb ance with you." was the reply. "The Colonel sars this must stop." re torted the janitor. "Throw the Colonel out and we'll stay out." yelled one of the men on the outside. The men then began to throw themselves agalnat the heavy door in a body, until Juni tor Hill saw that there was danger of its be ing forced off it hinge. lie culled the guard, with the intention of driving the men from the entrance. Private Ingleman of Company A was assigned to open the door. Scarcely had the fastenings been undone when the men outside swept In like a cyclone, sending the guard sprawling before he could get his bayo net Into position. Ilefore those inside the armory could recover from their surprise the roysterliig Invaders were in possession. They yelled like Comanche Indians and danced about the drill hall ln th dim midnight light. The janitor slipped off and telephoned to the police station lor assistance. This came ln the shape of a dosen policemen. The elec trio lights were turned on on the arrival of the police, and with the aid of the bluecouts the marauder were hunted out. Some had hid den ln the basement, others behind the boxes .and barrels on the drill floor, while other vainly sought to get Into the officers' room. When they were rounded up near the door one or two of the men showed tight, but tho offi cers drew their clubs and threatened to br- k head it there was any trouble, aud the entire buneh was pushed out Into th street and hustled off down the sidewulk. Col. Greene wa Indignant When ha heard of the oonduct of the men. He said that the regi ment so far had a clean record, and he did not wish to see It broken, especially at home. He at once aent notice to the occupants of th armory that the rules of the place must be ob served. The worst of the disorderly men have been forbidden to use the armory as quarters and the offending Lieutenant ha to sleep somewhere else.
