imrroDtrly laid out. He did not know who
Lo'ronslble for Its Plan of location, but
vn-w that regiments were, placed on ground
.elected by Qon. Brooko. In no case, how-
.V was this done with the advice of medloal
Z',n It was the duty, he said, of the com-
Sine officer to oqnsult with the medical
Sin such matters5. lie wasfcot consulted.

keen bid out. In some cases on rocky around
M and In other cases on low ground where there
w bad drainage, he protestod.
Co Denby-Were your protest not heeded?
I ne "discovered that some regiments were
crowded together and others were In the
-nnj, instead of tho open, where tho sunlight
could reach them. With refereneo to sinks, ho
said In the absence of a general order. It was
the "business of the Colonels commanding the
rMiments to locate them. The sickness at
I CamP Thomas until early In July never ex-
CMded per cent. ; sometimes it was as low as
I 2 ifcloVrin'c to the water supply. Dr. Hartsuff
said he protested against piping tho wter
from Chickamauga Creek, as the drainage
from the camps flowed Into It. His recommen-
datlon was that water should be piped from
Crawfish Springs, but. after coin? oyer tho
cround with Gen Brooke, he aeauloscod la the
nlplnc from the creek, but Insisted that tho In
?ie should be abova any of the drainage

hitmen aft drank wntor from a pond which
was Mcaslonnlly used to wash clothes from
Me of the camps. Ho also Protested aBalnBt
fCSrscm of dlsposlus rot rubbish by aump
Ijc It on a regimental dumpinir Brouud. He
rorommended that all rubbish he i bv.rned.

He said that conditions were duo in a meas
ure to the fact that rcEtmenta oruanlr-ed at
Camp Thomas were boine rapidly sent to the
front. Under the circumstance It . waB natu
ral for sickness to break out. In his opinion
camps should be chanued from time to time aud
the men marched about. Ho had rBeomrnend
ed.such notion several times, but it was never
done. He had investlcated cround for
marches and short .camps, and discovered
some on Lookout Mountain, where short
camps could be made to a limited extent with
out much expense. In the civil war. when
one oamp waa maintained a Ions time, the sick
report swelled up considerably, but as soon
as the men becan to move it diminished.
There was inconvenience, but no suffering
from lack of supplies. It was evident in the
beelnninif that Inexperience would cause- trou

It caused confusion amonir pa
tients and sureeons. He thought there was
aufferlnc at the division hospitals for want of
knowledge of how to administrate and conduct
the institution. To administer a (tenera or
division hospital requires a business training.
Ti-ere should bo ono hend sunreon to direct
all parts, and ho should have n, larce force of
men under him. At Camp Thomas clerical
work had to be performed by men detailed as
nurses. In somo cases sureeons made no re
ports, and once he Knew of a condition exist
ing where rations had not been drawn .and
there was danger of everybody being; hungry.
Of the six or olitht sureeons on duty not one
knew exactly how to make out n ration re
turn. He Insisted that it was better to have
regimental hospltnls. Asked if he did not
haie tho poner to establish regimental hospi
tals Instead of division hospitals, he answered
in the negative, saying that the order for the
division honltaIs came from the Yar Depart
ment, and ho could not change it.

S former agent ot the State Pure Food Bureau,
I kt,0r8 th8 War Investigating Commission to-
fm n,ht made charges of blunders and necleot at
I Camp Thomas. Moore was Captain ot a com-
! 9 pany ot the Ninth Iteglment, recruited in
I ""iford under tho second call for volunteers.
He went Into camp at Chickamauga in the
middle of July and remained several weeks.
Three ot his men died of typhoid fever, and an
J other ot heart disease. One was his brother,
( whose death he ascribed In part to the noises

i plained of tho lack of medical supplies. He
' H aid typhoid fever was epldemlo In camp and

muoh of tho sickness in his company was due
to a loug march for a review by Gen. Bangor,
and that forty of the mon had typhoid. ,Tno
rcglmont had to buy llmo and other disin
fectant becauso tho Commissary Department
would not Issuo thorn. Dr. Weaver, the regi
mental surgeon, was unable to procure med
ical supplies from the Quartormastor. and what
tho regiment had was either bought out of tho
profits of tho canteon or was donated by tho
cltlzons of Wllkcsbnrro.
Mooro said that Crawfish Hprlng was a bath
Ing place for hogs and thnt his company did
not use this wator. All the water used was
tnkon from the surface springs In tho i camp
Tho men were forbidden to uso tho wator Piped
through tho camp becnuso it was unwholo-
"lief-hail no complaint to make about the
loiter Hospital, except that tho doctors and
nurses wero continually clmttoring in thoror
rldors. Tills nnnoyed the patient nnd was not
stoppod until Mooro rnllod tho attention of the
surgoon In charge to tho nuisance. As arulo
tho nurses nnd physicians were competent.
Gen. Wilson asked JloornboutClifckamauga
Creok and tho streams which, ran into It above
the lntako pipe. Mooro said ho thought tho
sti earns which were constantly polluted by
mules mid cavalry hoi ses wero tributary to
Chickamauga Crook. Lutnr he expressed somo
doubt as to Ills knowledge on this point. Ooij.
Wilson was particular in drawing out testi
mony on tills Point, becauso Mooro was the
first witness who had, yet testified that tho
Bt reams above tho lntako plpoworo tributary
to Chickamauga Creek, ,
Gen. Uoavor suggested to Moore that the
dopot commissary was only too glad to rclssuo
rations and supplies when sponea rations wui
returned, for the roason that only in thnt way
was the Government able to get square with
contractors. Mooro said he novor heard that
rations could bo returned to the commissary.
On tho other hand, when complaint was made
about spoiled rations tho regimental commis
sary and Col. Dougherty had glyen him ito un
derstand that tho men must tako the rations
that were Issued. ,
He said that sinks wore ordered at a groator
distance from the line of tents, but tho Brigadier-General
countormnnded tho order becauso
tho sinks would Interfere with tho Parade
grounds. Abandoned sinks would overflow
after a rain and vermin would cover the ground
for rods. Mooro said much regarding the In
competence of superior offlcors, and declared
that the olght-mllo march for a re
vlow before Gen. Hanger waa on p. (lay
when the thcrmomotor was 115' in the
sun. Tho men were In heavy marching
order. They dropped out so that when
tho march was concluded there was only sixty
men of Mooro's company In line. Ifo tcstlflerl
that tho mon wero compollod to drill and work
several hours a day. and. they were on tne
move nil the time, even when the temperature
was 120" In the sun. Ho said they were com
pelled to arlso at i :30 in tho morning, and wero
busy until 0 at night: that the 'regiment was
practically worked nnd drilled into tho sick
ness that overcame the men. ,ii
Only three mombers of the 'Investigating
Board are hero, and their visit will be very
brief. Gon. John J. Wilson. Capt. Evan P.
Howell nnd Gen. James A. Ileavor arrived this
afternoon and went direct to Camp Monde,
and mado n tour of all the regiments. Tho
commanding ofTlcors of oach were closely ques
tioned us to where they wore In camp before
coming to Camp Meade, and whether tho
rations wero satisfactory. Sinks wore oxamined
and questions asked ns to sanitary arrange
ments. Gen. Wilson spoko for his colleagues
W" wVfound' tho sinks In excellent sanitary
condition. Tho camp is well locatod and well
laid out. and its appearance, so far as we wore
able to learn from a rapid examination. Is ex
cellent. The water supply seemed to be excel

Mnjor Ituncle Shows Thnt the Subsistence
Department tTns Not to Blame.
Washington. Nov. 3. Tho Commissary-General
of the army has received many letters
from both volunteer and regular officers prnls
lng his administration of the Subsistence De
partment and giving tholr experienco with
officers of tho department whilo in thu field.
One of these letters is from Major J. E. Runclo
of tho First Ohio Volunteer Cavalry, who at tho
breaking out of tho war with Spain was a re
tired officer of tho regular army. After speak
ing of tho report which had been published In
regard to the saving effected by his regiment
by exchange of rations. Major Ituncle says:
" We did realize something more than $4,000
in profits from tho exchange, and with such an
addition to our resources we were ablo to feed
our men better than any soldiers I had ever
beforo seen in tho field. They had plenty and
arietyina dogree I never know to bo sur
passed and seldom equalled even by troops in
garrison. They had plenty of fresh vegetables
and canned goods, tea and cocoa. In addition to
coffee, milk. eggs, eh'eoso. butter, lemons,
raisins, berries, fruits, ana frequently fish and
chickens In Hou ot the meat rations. Of
course suoh things could not have been fur
nished If we had not mado large troop
funds out of tho profit of the roelmontal
exchange, or at least could not have beon sup
plied in suoh quantities ; but even without that
resource we could havo fed our men abun
dantly and wholosomely with what wo realized
from our rations alone applied to the welfare
of tho mon under tho direction and instruction
of experienced offlcers. And without the ex
perience of such officers all our resources would
not havo produced tho result which were
achieved In.our regiment. There was never a
time In ourehtlre period of service when the
Subslstenco Department failed to supply ra
tions promptly, of , good, quality, and In
the quantities called for by our regi
ment and 1 novcr heard of an In-
imnri In which the department failed In its
duty in any command in which wo serveu.
Thore were a few days at our camp near Lake
land. Fla.. In which wo falledto receive our
rations of fresh beef, but the failure was duo to
the contractor, not to the 'department. .The
attempt was mndo to send beef from Tampa
toLakolnnd.a little more than thirty miles, in
ordinary oxpress cars, with no protection other
than that afforded by the sacking in which tho
meat was served. From tho railroad station
in Lakeland the ment was carried In i open
wagonstoourcamp.adlstnneeot about amllc.
where delivery wns required to bo mado. As
the beef had all boon carried trom Chicago or
Kansas City to Tampa In refrigerator cars,
or course it was in condition to spoil
rapidly when exposed to the temperature und
atmosphere of n Florida summor. and it was
found frequently to be unlit tor Issue when it
reached our camp. As the contract for fur
nishing the beef had been wisoly drawn up so
a" to provide for such contingency, the beef
had only to bo rojoetod with proper notice to
he contractor, on whom the ; entire loss U .
Other Issues wore made to thn troops, who
Buffered only slight inconvenience and nymo
Pitt o delay ns the result of the contractor's
failure. After throe or four such oxponencejj
lho agent of tho contractor brought, all th
meat from Tampa In Ice chests andtheie was
o'f'cSurse'have heard of tho l.ystorlcal
complaints of neglect and starvation which
have comerom somo of tho men in volunteer
regiments nnd from tho sympathetic but highly
Ignorant frlouds of these men at thelrhomes.
and of the result ng acnusat on of inefficiency
and neglect of duty that havo boon directed
against the Bubs stenco Depnrtmcnt of the
army. And I know that, whatever cause may
havo nspired the complaints of tho men, the
Inference that tho department was accountable
fSJ.it t. entirely unwarranted, and that tho ac
cusations wade against it aro totally uniiisuii
nble. It will bo recalled that when tho militia
organizations of the several States were asked
to vo unteor fqr service, they almost unnnl
mously made it a condition I'rocodent
that thoy should servo only undor their
own elected officers. They hnd tho Irwny. ami
whole regiments went out to servo In the "old
without a single officer who had had any ox
per ence In supplying troops pr who know any
thing at all about the care o! men hi cmps.
Many of the officers were so JCjiorant of their
duties in those respects Ihttt they weie quite
unaware that thorn w-ae anything for them to
earm From Colonols to cooks tlTey were more
or less helpless when It came to the question of
feeding their men properly. In tho first tfogo
of their surUce it was far moro Important for
fhem fo know what to do with thelr.rntlons
thin what to do with their weapons, lhave no
doubt that many went .hungry, but I nejer
henrd of n caso in which hunger was due
to any failure of tho Subsistence Department
to supply full rations to tho men. was
duo to their Ignorance, wastefulness, Inexperi
2n?e and unskilfultiess In utll zing what tho
department abundantly supplied. And It was
very noticeable that when the results of their
own ignornnco overtook them thoy were not
slow to acouse their own offlcers. without
whom they hnd infusod to sorvo. of dlshon
estly disposing of their rations, when tho truth
wns that tholr offlcors were merely as gnorant
and as Inexperienced as thninsnlvc. 1 see no
foason to look for any other result whenever
Ignorant and Inexperienced offlcers are- allowed
to trifle with the he al h and tho llve of equally
Ignorant and Inexperienced men.'

The police will probably make ngcnulno ef

was Charles F. Beastey. 42 yoars old, of 432
West Twenty-fourth stroet. Ho was n brothor
of WardmonBoasley of the Church stroot sta

business In Chambers stro6t. Ho was born In

When he was In Twenty-ninth street bo

the theatre, notloed Beasloy walking In front
of them. When they got within n oouplo ot
houses of homo Beaslev stopped. Mr. and
Mrs. Hess passed him, but heard him start
again behind thom. At this tlmo they nlso saw
two men coming toward them from Ninth ave
nue. Ono of these men was tall and the other
short. Tho Hossos went up the stoop of their
house. Vhllo they wero facing the houso nnd
just a Mr. Hess hnd unlocked tho outer door,
Mrs. Iloss hoard some ono fall with a thud to
the sidewalk, nnd. turning, saw lloasley lying
at full length on the n.neraent justlu front of
the next house, whllo the two men mentioned
wore bending over him. Tho shorter of tho
men wns leaning ovor him at his head, ns u to
rnlso him. As a matter of fact, as appeared
afterward, ho was In that position bo as the
more conveniently to thrust his hands Into
his victim's trousers pockets. Suddenly he
raised himself up and ran toward tlghth ave
nue. Mrs. Hess thought he wns going Tor a
doctor, bho called her husband's attention to
what had happened and both started toward
Beasley. Tho tall man walked off toward
Eighth nvenuo. but afterward turned and went
toward Ninth avenue.
There woro two othor persons who saw the
bold robbery. Ono of these was Philip Itolso
ot :t2.-l Eighth avenue. He came running up.
and. seeing Beasloy's ponkets turned Insldo
out. ho rulsed tho cry of "Stop thief!" nnd fol
lowed tho short man. Policeman Hlmms. who
wns on Thirtieth street, heard the cries, nnd.
running into Eighth avenue, took up tno
chase and caught the lleeing thief. Just. alter
he captured the fugitive lie encountered Chief
of I'ollco Devory. who whs on his way home.
Devery went back with him to where tho as
sault ocourrcd and held tho prisoner whilo
filming sent for an ambulance By this timo
tho tall man had disappeared.
Beasley had a cut on the bacc of his head
which may havo been made elthor by a blow
from a weapon or by his fall on the sidewalk.
Ho whs taken to Roosevelt Hospital, where he
died at 11:15 A. M. yesterday. Tho.pnsonor
gave his name as Edward Wise and said he
was n profcsslonalpool player. 28 yoars old.
and lived nt 203 West Thirtieth stroet. Ho
said that ho was gr-Ine through the Btreet with
two comrades, nil side by side, when thev met
Beasloy and two other men walking also side
by side There was not room for them all to
pass In that way. he said, and a quarrel arose.
During this quarrel he asserted that Beasloy
struck him and that then one of his comrades
knocked Beasloy down. Then they allranlaway.
Wise was arraigned Defore Magistrate ,ent
worth at the West Fifty-fourth Street Court
later and remanded until to-day. Then he
was taken before Coroner Hart at the Cor
oners' offlce. and he, was committed with
out bail to the Tombs :Prlson. ChleC Dev
ery appeared bofore the Coroner and tried ham
to have Wise remanded to his custody at Police
Headquarters. Some persons, thought this
was for the purpose of giving him tho famous
"third degree." . . . ,
lawyer Abraham Levy, who appeared for
Wise objected, and Wl6e was sent to the
prison. Devery had a score of Central Office
