in the building. He also reported the
case of the killing of former Gov. Steunenberg

JOLLY TIME IS PLANNED
FOR INDEPENDENCE DAY
Committee Provides for Every Form
of Amusement?Appeal Made
According to the plans of the citizens'
Independence day celebration committee.
Washington will be one of the jolllest
and most interesting places in the United
States on the Fourth of July.
Every detail of the big day's program
has been mapped out and it provides for
every form of amusement for the community

anxious that the comfort and pleasure of

in the arrangements for the national
Five Thousand Dollars Needed.
Funds to the extent of $5,000 are needed
at once to carry on the work of the committee,
which has established its headquarters
in room 508, municipal building.
Commissioner Newman requests that
funds intended for the Fourth of July
treasury he addressed to Edmund S.
Wolfe, treasurer, at the committee head

is essential that the committee know In
about ten days the extent of its finances
so that the contract for fireworks may
be gauged accordingly.
K. C. Graham, chairman of the fireworks
committee, has mapped out a wonderfully
interesting program for an
aerial display, but of course the committee
is powerless to go ahead without adequate
funds in hand.

MARINE OFFICER TELLS
OF FIRST DAY'S STRIFE
Had to Use Pickaxes to Force Doors
in Search for Snipers, Writes
LIEUT. ANDREW B. DRUM, t. 5. M. C.
The first marines who landed at Vera
Cruz had to use pickaxes in opening
up houses to dislodge snipers, according
to a statement in a letter recently received
by his family from Lieut. Andrew
Drum, IT. S. M. C. Lieut. Drum is a
Washington boy, was educated at the
public schools in this city, and is in
charge of the marines on the battleship
South Carolina. He was among the first
representatives of the flag to land at
Vera Cruz, and, according to him, for
the first few days times were pretty
Lieut. Drum was present at the raising
of the American flag at Vera Cruz, April
27. His grandfather, Capt. Simon Drum,
was present at the former raising of the
standard sixty-eight years ago. Capt.
Simon Drum was a member of the 4th
Artillery; was graduated from West
Point in the class of 1829, Gen. Lee's
class; landed with Scott's army and participated
in the maroh from Vera Cruz
to Mexico City, with its attendant battles.
He was killed in the final -battle
of that war at the Garita de Belin, or
Belin Gate, during the assault on the
castle of Chapultepec. The same cannon
ball which killed Capt. Drum also killed
his first lieutenant. He was a brother of
the late Adjt. Gen. Drum.
At West Point, mounted as a relic, is
a field gun with the following inscription:
"Lost by at Buena Vista, without
dishonor, and retaken by Capt. Simon
Drum with honor."
Among the prized possessions of his
daughter-in-law, mother of Lieut. Drum,
are the dress coat worn by Capt. Drum
during his service, another uniform coat,
which he is supposed to have worn when
he was killed, and his money belt, found
on his body. The free and easy clothes
worn by soldiers today are _ in strong
contrast to the heavily paaaea, ugnifltting,
long-tailed affair, surmounted
by a stiff three-inch collar, then in
vogue. Bursting bombs, embroidered in
gold, ornament each of the spiked tails,
and each shoulder -bears a heavy brass
Lieut. Drum's father, son of the veteran
of the former Mexican war, fought
in the civil wax, was later in the quartermaster's
department of the United
States Regular Army, and was for
fourteen years superintendent of Arlington
Lieut. Drum was born in Winchester,
Va., and at the age of nine took up his
residence in Washington. Shortly after
the completion of his high school course,
at the age of twenty-one, he was commissioned
a lieutenant in the Marine
