AT CAMP ORDWAY
General Harries Talks to the Officers. BRIGADE, RIFLE TEAM TO PARTICIPATE IN NATIONAL MATCH AT FORT RILEY. Soldiers Find Time for Recreation Two Rival Ball Teams-Visitors Enjoy the Parades. epeeal Dispatch From a Staff orrespondent. CAMP ORDWAY, HARPER'S FERRY, W. Va., August 4.-With the post hos pital free of patients, the sun shining brightly and a cool breeze sweeping over Bolivar Heights, conditions today at the temporary home of the troops of the Na tional Guard of the District of Columbia are ideal. Everybody is in good spirits and displaying marked interest in the work of the day, which is being carried on with vigor. After two (lays devoted to drilling in close order the several or ganizations were put through the various movements in extended order for three hours this morning. The skirmish work proved unusually interesting to the ma jority of the guardsmen and especially to those who are recruits. The work was supervised closely and the drill being the first of its class luring the encamp rxw' DOG TENTS OF ment was considered most creditable. More progress has been made up to this time than during the first four days of any other outing in the history of the citizen soldiery of the national capital. Officers' call was sounded at 8 o'clock last evening. General Harries made a Etatement to the effect that while there had been an improvement to the extent of about 3110 per cent in the work of yes terday over that of the preceding day, there was still a great deal of room for betterment. The defects that had been noted were dwelt on and the officers instructed regard ing just what they should do in order to C:ring about a condition of things as near perfection as possible. The commanding general also made the significant state ment that the army officers who are in at tendance at the encampment by direction of the War Department will mention names in their reports on the work accomplished here. The recommendations of the regular officers will be incorporated in the efficiency records of the National Guard officers kept by the War Department. Gen. Harries' Impressions. Gen. Harries gave his impressions of the maneuvers at Fort Riley, Kan., last year. Major Ourand, who was also at Fort Riley, told of the work of the regulars and guards men during the big war game. In this connection Gen. Harries explained why the District National Guard will not participate in the maneuvers to be held in the vicinity of Manassas, Va., from the 5th to the 11th of next month. It was announced, how ever, that as many officers of the District brigade as will be able to go will be taken to Manassas to observe the maneuvers. A camp will be established near Gainesville for the Washingtonians. and they will be given every opportunity as spectators to de rive as much information as can be had from the contest between the two big bodies of troops. Each officer was requested to notify Gen. Harries prior to the close of the present encampment whether or not he will be able to go to Manassas. Major Henderson of the general staff has gone in quest of Gov. White of West Vir ginia, to personally present to that official an invitation from Gen. Harries to visit here next Sunday, inspect the camp and review the troops. It was definitely decided today to hold the athletic games next Monday afternoon. Troop F. 15th U. S. Cavalry, that has been in camp with the Pennsylvania Na tional Guard at Gettysburg, Pa.,* reported here shortly before 10 o'clock this morning. Brigade Rifle Team.

Tomlinson, inspector of rifle practice, 2d Regiment, with a detail of engineers. is at work this afternoon putting the range in conditidn for shooting. Members of the brigade rifla team will obtain as muach practice as p%*-, sible during odd moments while here. Find Time for lecreation. Everybody has now settisd doWa and the work is being done 1withotut hitdh or 18 understanding. In spite of the vast amount of duty the soldier boys flid tiie, for amusement and recreation. Many take to base ball and several games are often in progress simultaneously. The enthusiasts of the 1st and 2d Regiments have made uh two teams and several match games will be arranged. In addition to valuable prizes the games will be of interest in that it will be for the- championship of the brigade.. It is interesting to note how carefully the men of the cavalry and artillery look after their horses. Their first thought after drills or after long marches is of their horses, and the comfort of the animals is looked after before the men consider their own needs. An interesting feature of the rou tine In this portion of the camp is the tak ing the horses to water. . The scene is a pic turesque one, as all the horses of a 'battery or troop file off the grounds. in columns of twos, one horse of each pair being r'dden bareback by a soldier. The line moves down the road at a trot to the river. where the horses splash about with great content while taking their fill of water. Another attractive sight is the drill field in the mornings, when its broad area is dotted with numerous divisions of troops marching to and fro in varied evolutions. A mingling of sharp commands rises con tinuously. and the visitor is at times al most bewildered. Drill begins at 8 o'clock and continues for three hours. The first hour is devoted to movements in company formation, the second to drill battalions and the third hour is taken up by regi mental drill. The officers of the general staff move about the field on horseback, giving close attention to the work of the CHE REGULARS. mEn, and upon noting an irregularity a correction is promptly made. Each afternoon at 2 o'clock the District's battery of field artillery appears for drill. The green horses are gradually becoming accustomed to their work and the men handle them with a facility and smooth ness that improves day by day. Y. X. C. A. Tent. The Y. M. C. A. tent this year is under the charge of Mr. W. H. Lewis of Frost )urg. Md., and though somewhat hampered at first by the non-arrival of a large num >er of necessary supplies and the lack of tssisgtance, the benificent work of this es ablishment is now well under way. About kN) letters are written in the tent every day mn paper and envelopes being furnished 'ree by the association. Mr. Lewis also supplies postage stamps and takes charge of the letters for mailing. On the several long tables in the tent copies of the latest nagalnes, weekly and daily papers will soon be provided, which the men may read. The number of letters written and mailed at the tent indicates that the guardsmen tre availing themselves of the opportunity hus provided to communicate with their amllies, and thus their fidelity to home Is ostered. From year to year the responsibility for mundry discordant nocturnal noises that >ervade the night air and disturb the >eaceful slumbers of many is a subject for ,ontroversy between various divisions of he Guard. It has always been difficult to localize the sounds and discover their source positively, for everybody stoutly de ties any responsibility or cognizance in the matter when questioned; but it seems as hough a disclosure is imminent now. Hov ring over the quartermaster and commis iary quarters during .he night there is a sound of deep vibration. It reminds some persons of the drawing of a heavy board back and forth across the edge of a barrel. As stated, it is believed that the cause of this night revelry is about to be discovered. If he Is found the sufferers will endeavor to wreak vengeance. The health of the camp continues to be ilmost as good as could be desired, there eing no patients in the hospital and only a few minor ailments brought to the atten :ion of the medical officers. The water sup ply holds out well, and Its character is of the best, Maj. Neumeyer's big 1,000-gallon tank is a great success. It assures a. steady supply of water in bulk for cooking >r other purposes, and It has obviated a great deal of delay In the procurement of water from the pumps. The tank is situ ated on a hillside, under a large tree, near the north end of the camp inclosure. It is sonvenient of access and not far from the main section of the camp. A short dis tanoe above the tank, on the hill, there is i pump, from which a large pipe connects with the reservoir. At the bottom of the tank there is fixed a spigot and a section aft hose with a nozsle at the end. By this means large cans and buckets are filled In very short order. Many Visitors Yesterday. The largest attendance of visitors at dress parade and the band concert thus far was noted yesterday afternoon. The ap pearance of the troops was the subject of many complimentary remarks, Several hundred visitors remained throughout the soncert, and the applause kept Chief Mu sician MicLeod busy wielding his baton until nearly double the original number of selec tions on the program had been rendered. The program to be rendered by the Bri gade Band in front of headquarters this evening, beginning at 7 o'clock, is as fol lows. 1. March-"Fort Omaha"............Farrar 2.

Whitehead, private sec retary to General Harries, has reported in camp. He was warmly greeted by the of ficers at headquarte.rs and at the post hos pital. For gallant and merttorious conduct in action during tbe field maneuvers near Leesburg two years ago Mr. Whitehead was given the title of field marshal, by brevet. He announces that he is here de termined to earn additional honors, Some excitement occurred in the quarters of the Signal Corps when a copperhead snake made its appearance there yester day. It is reported that the reptile was promptly killed. The greatest surprise, however, was caused by the report that "snakes" had been seen In the Signal Corps camp and not In some other portions of the camp that it would be Indelicate to specifically designate. C. F. C. Third Attempt to Wrek Train A dispatch from Winchester, Va., last night says: The third attempt to wreeg trains on the Balttmore and Ohio raitreadt at the same spot was made at- an ekiY hour yesterday morning two miles south of this city. Railroad ties yere piled high on the track, and as the east-bound freight train came along at a high rate of' apeed the engineer saw the obstruction just iia time to avoid a wreck and brought his train to a standstill.
