GEH, GREELY'S REPORT
Work of the Signal Corps
During the Year.
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.

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

"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
