ENLISTED MEN PRAISED ENDURANCE AND FIDELITY IN ALASKA COMMENDED. Excellence of the Instiuction at Fort Myer Demonstrated?Needs of the Post?Estimates Rendered. General Greely. chief signal officer of the United States army. In his annual report shows that during the year the system of military telegraph lines and cables in Alas ka authorized by Congress has been com pleted. and consists of 1,740 miles. In speaking of the extre ne difficulties en countered In running telegraph lines in the far north General Greely says: ?"Very eaily springs, late autumns, enor mous snowfalls, summer floods, impassable canons, and. last of all, a gold fever which stripped one officer of every civilian em ploye save one, have alternately impeded progress, but the energy and resourceful ness of the officers in charge of the work have met and overcome difficulties which seemed Insurmountable." It is stated that one line was pushed along a route pro nounced impracticable, and another across a country that had never before been trod den by the foot of a white man. Attention Is called to the fact that not twenty miles of constructed wagon roads exist in the country traversed, and that as a rule alt material was sledded into the interior in midwinter are carried by pack animals over the roughest trail. Of the enlisted men of the signal corps who made up the construction parties. Gen eral Greelv says: "It is doubted whether in the peaceful annals of th? army there have been met with nobler fortitude by the en listed men equal conditions of hardship and privation." Tribute also is paid to the line of the army for its service in connection with telegraph construction in Alaska. As to automobiles and balloons. Gen. Greely says: "In view of the prospective ?value of auto-propelled vehicles to tele graph and balloon trains, the chief sig nal officer of the army has continued ex periments with automobiles. The Signal Corps' experiences have demonstrated the practicability of self-propelled vehicles for such military purposes. While the good points of electric and steam vehicles arc thoroughly recognized, yet the inter nal combustion typ<\ using kerosene or other oil. seems preferable for war pur poses. Tills type has especially valuable features from a military standpoint in its small fuel and water consumption, es sential qualities to any army in the field. It may be added that experiments in for eign service confirmed the experience of the Signal Corps as to the advisability of using auto-propelled vehicles for special military purposes. "It has been impossible to do any bal looning work during the past year. First there were neither men nor officers avail able for that purpose. Second, repeated efforts in the form of applications to fortv or more firms in the United States disclosed the Inability of the Signal Corps to obtain from private manufac turers compressed hydrogen gas. which Is absolutely necessary for successful aeronautical work with captive balloons. With additional officers obtakied by de tail under the law, it Is hoped that some udvance may be made in placing this im portant military work in a condition of efficiency during the coming year. It now seems certain that, a permanent plant for making an.d compressing hydro gen gas will be necessary for successful work." Plan of Reorganization. General Greely submits a plan for the re organization of the signal corps to meet the Increased requirements of the arrtly. It is recommended that the enlisted force con sist of three battalions of four companies each, each company to have a minimum force of 100 men. General Greely says there should be one additional colonel to give the signal corps the proportion of Meld officers equal to the minimum accorded any other staff corps of the army. The or ganization. he says, should be under the same conditions as those which characterize the admirable organization of the corps of engineers. "The condition of the enlisted men In the Philippines," says he, "has been deplorable, and that of the men In Alaska only less so. It should be possible to relieve men in the Philippines and In Alaska by the detail of companies which would guarantee to the men of the signal corps the same certainty of equitable service abroad as is granted to other branches of the service, but which Indisputably has been denied to the signal corps of the army in the past as impracti cable. This despite the favorable action of the Secretary of War." Signal Corps Estimates. The estimates for the Signal Corps proper cover two Items?the first for the general work of the corps amounting to ?208,500 and the second for the continuance of the Alaskan cable system amounting to $321,580. There was appropriated for Alaskan cables during the present year the sum of $485, ooo. The new estimate is for the purchase, installation, operation and maintenance of a submarine cable connecting the head quarters. Department of the Columbia,with military garrisons in Alaska, extending from Sitka to Fort Listum. This extension, General Greely says, is necessary to con nect the_ western Alaskan military tele graph section of 1,01!) miles with the east ern section of 1,500 miles and make it a homogenous system extenaing from Nome, Alaska, to Seattle, Wash. It will give the .United States, he says, direct telegraphic control of Alaska, Independent of the Can adian telegraph lines, over which all mili tary messages are now necessarily trans mitted to and from the western military telegraph section. 1,01'J miles in extent. The estimates for the fire control instal lation in coast defenses aggregates $1,024, 794, an increase of S?15,7i:4 over the amount appropriated for the current year. There has been no appreciable reduction of expenses In the Philippine Islands during the fiscal year, and the demands upon the Signal Corps for service have continued. vThe Post at Fort Myer. Referring to the Signal Corps post at Fort Myer, Gen. Greely says that the primary function of the post is the instruc tion of untrained officers and men, while secondarily it serves as a depot of repairs ^and Issues. Its value as a school of in struction.'. he says, Is shown by the fact that 178 enlisted or transferred men have Joined during the year. The necessities of the service have reduced the period of in struction to four and one-half months, which, he says, is too limited a period for proper training. He says the excellent qu.ility of the recruits and character of the garrison is shown by the fact that, despite the unpleasant surroundings that have grown up since the canteen system was modified there has been during the past year but one trial by court-martial and nineteen by summary courts. The trans portation facilities at the i>ost are de scribed as inadequate, it being necessary to haul all supplies to and from the post six miles each way by wagon. "I'nfortunately It has been impossible," says Gen. Greely. "owing to the great scarcity of officers to furnish the technical Instruction for the officers at the post, the commanding officer being unable to do more than supervise military instruction, pure and simple, and instruction of officers has necessarily been suspended, much to the Injury of the service and to the detri ment of the Individual officers. The rela tions of the two independent posts at Fort Myer?the cavalry and s.gnal corps posts have been most harmonious. Colonel Kdger ly having invariably co-operaUd with Col. Thompson In all matters affect.ng the In terests of both posts." Decree of Divorce Signed. Justice Gould, In Equity Court No. 2. has signed a decree granting William H. Lucas a divorce from Alice Lucas on the ground of desertion. Annual Meeting HelcU- at Honse of Worship. THE ANNUAL REPORTS REVIEW BY PRESIDENT BLOTJT OF ASSOCIATION'S WORK.

The \ resent membership <v I the association, he stated, numbers ? During the year ending November . ? ^ ? eiphtv-six persons have been cared for at various times at the inn. Mr. OPP^rnev ureed th? establismment of a Heb.ew nome, to l)e conducted in connection with the inn.

S4i-.il. Mr. Blout's Statement. Among other things Mr. Blout said; "The condition of many of our pooi has been materially improved. Many were aided to become self-sustaining and many ha\e been relieved as circumstances would per mit, while some whose co- " 'on was of a nature,almost foreign to fj^.uTiar suwr "S- .-ST? incident of a Jewish soldier, who, being dis ^^^nsi^Vt^ waiUnK a long time, became discouraged. Ilstanc^^T^aW^fVnSimon'wolf was j ? i $17.50 a month. ?nllt "The incident cited. said Mr. J1""1' | "proves conclusively that the mere doling out of the necessaries of life is not ail that institutes charity work. Tc.aid andI cheer the forlorn, who from pride and fe'f"resp?(;,; shrink from the cold charities of the.^vorIfj to elevate the condition of the fallen, to save the unknown from a pauper s Brave, are aims which point to the higher purpose o? our milsion. Neither food nor fuel can heal the wounds of the unfortunate, good cheer, evidence of interest in their condition, good counsel and advice being often mote soothing ttian food and shelter. To feed the hungry, nurse the feeble are but the minor functions of charity. Incidents of greater and more vital concern not only tax those who are charged with this work, but necessitates time and means far greater. _ ? Duty to Relieve Poverty. "It is not our purpose to speculate as to the origin <Jf poverty, but it is our duty to relieve It. Conditions will never change while we are content in affluence by com fortable firesides and let poverty remain ig nored and neglected. The needs and wants of the unfortunates are our needs an<r wants By relieving their distress we aie not only elevating them but ourselves. "The necessity of furnishing temporary shelter combined with a satisfying meal, has often become apparent and caused no little apprehension to the management. 10 suppy this want an institution, known as the Hebrew Inn, connected with and under the immediate control of our charities, has of late been created, where a temporary shelter, bed and board are furnished. This Institution, owing to insufficient support for Its maintenance is as yet incomplete. As sistance is needed to complete this home. You yourself may never experience the want of a comfortable bed or may never feel the pangs of hunger, but there are those who have, and in behalf of these un fortunates the society asks you to lend a helping liand." The Home Poor. Mr Blout made reference to the efforts made to relieve suffering among kin and friends in foreign countries, and he urged that the needs of the poor at home should not be forgotten. Continuing, the speaker said: "The mere adherence to customs and cer emonies does not always signify sincerity of devotion: to visit the house of worship, to listen to beautiful sermons on the ethics of philanthropy, to be told of our t(?~ ward our fellow-men. signifies but little unless these admonitions are heeded and put into execution. All the sermons of a lifetime will not till the treasury of a char ity organization, nor will they put bread into the mouth of the hungry, nor teach people their duty toward suffering human ity so well as will one short term of perso nal contact with the suffering, a personal conviction of their needs and wants, of individual responsibility. "Contributions and donations from va rious sources, different associations, as well as individuals, have materially helped us to accomplish that which otherwise would have been impossible, notable among which is the help of quite a number of ladles. Spe cial mention should be made of the assist ance rendered by the ladies' Sewing Circle, the Guild and many others. The thanks of the management and the association are due them, and they should receive proper recognition. The readiness and willingness of the officers and members of the board, their zeal and devotion to duty, regardless of the sacrifice of time and patience, de serve our admiration and our warmest thanks. ??Special mention should likewise be made of the voluntary offering of the services of Dr. Harry Kaufman, whose attentions to the sick poor were promptly and willingly given whenever asked, and are hereby gratefully recognized. "Poverty may not be done away with by the collection of statistics, nor the woes of the unfortunate be lessened by elaborate reports, but the deserving will be more speedily relieved, and impostors more read ily detected, where system and order gov ern and duties and obligations reign." Petition in Bankruptcy. Tirrothy E. Sullivan, a restaurant keeper of 1716 Pennsylvania avenue, has, through Attorney L. P. Loving, filed a petition in voluntary bankruptcy. His summary of debts Is stated to be 10,501.19 and ills assets $5,402.30.
