whether or not white llancl bathing suits
should be allowed on the beach. The po
lice say "no" emphat!cal! . and Is 1 re
ported by one policeman that BIhop Fltz

precipitated by tho refusal of the police
to allow a well-known Brooklyn. N Y.,
woman to bathe at Ullzgon's ground be
cause she wore a white suit It waa not of
any thm material, belnR made from heavy
f.anneL but the puritanlc.il police said It
was unseemly and perhaps demorallzlnR,
and that sh must return to her bath
house and never again appear on the beach
In such a costume. She and her husband
departed In anger the same day.

Asbury Park. -V J . Jul) 19. In his fight
for right conduct on hl beach "Founder"
James A. Bradley this week followed up hi
attack on the summer girU for wearing
their bathlnR suits through the street-,
with an even more vigorous onslaught on
th men who go bathlnR In too scanty rai
ment. Ten of these chaps he caught at the
Asbury avenue grounds on Tuesday, lie
had his policemen drive them Into their
bathhouses out of sight, and then adminis
tered to them a rasping reprimand for ap
pearing on the beach In what ho conslderel
too little clothing. If those fellows uppiar
again In their objectionable costumts the
"Founder" promise to prosecute them for
making of themselves a public nuisance
The summer girl in her street bathing
Full Is still giving Senator Bradley a deal
of trouble She manages to elude his olll
cers and to steal from her cottage to tho
eurf. A second offense, however, the auto
crat of the beach sa)S, will glo the pretti
est girl trouble, since he purposes to stop
the practice. ...
That President McKlnley will again visit
Asbury Park this summer while he Is at
Elberon is certain. The Common Council
hai sent him a special Invitation to to
present at a mass meeting In his honor,
which the city proros to hold in the au
ditorium. The plan Is also to have Governor
Ilooseveit. Senator J. B. Foraker of Ohio
and Senator Mark Hanna attend the meet
ing; which will take the form of a wel
come from the entire coast.

Camp Bell. Springfield. Mo.. July II. The
Missouri National Gunrd has volunteered
as a whole for service In China. In th
event of its bcirg called uron by the
United States.
0!tl:ers ami enlisted men of the four reg
Imintsand Battery A have expressed their
vvIHIrMiess to serve with the army in any
part of the world. Commanders of the dif
ferent organizations have ofTcred their com
mands to Adjutant General Bell.
These offers were made after a thorough
canvars of the sentiment of the ofllcers anl
Great excitement prevails among the sol
diers about developments In China. The St.
Iul papers ar- eagerly looked for every
evenlr.s. After their arrival knots of men
congregate about the camp grounds to h"nr
the rews and dlsc"ss Its merits. The Chi
nese are not very popular with th militia
men, who are eager for a brush with them.
War with the Celestials Is the chief toplr
of conversation at every mess in the bris
ade. General Bell said to-day that he had re
ce'ved no communication whatever from
the War Department In regard to furnish
ing troops for China, and that h did rot
Mlcve Missouri would be called u:ion un
less the reed should become very tirsent.
"The mllltla was never In better condition
to go to the front," he said, "and I hav
rss-jrance that every National Guard or
ganlratlrn In the State Is willing to sry
Of course, the regiments and battery woul 1
have to be reTulled up to a war footing,
hut there would be no difficulty In obtain
ing volunteers, as was fully demonstrated
at the time rf the Spanish-American war.
It Is not probable that the mllltla will be
called nut for foreign ervice at the present
time. I believe that If more troops are re
quired Ccngress will use some other means
of raising them."
Tnls Is the Inst day of regular routine at
Camp Bell. At 4 p. m. to-morrow tents
w-Jll be struck and camp' bnggag packed
preparatory to departure. The Second Resl
ment leave" en a special at 6 p. m. By 3
oVloi-k the last troops will have left Sp'lng
field. Battery As guns and heavy bag
gage went out this evcnlrg on a freight, n--comranled
by a Sergeant and guard of
eight privates General Clark and s'sff will
remain here several elnys longer to clear n
the left-over business.
The following was appended to a gepee. i
order tsuoi! bv General Clark this eyenlng-
"The commanding nScer takos tM occa
sion to express his apnredatl-n of the splen
did discipline maintained during the hours
of duty and of the palnstaklrg efforts of
the ofllcers and men to make the camp suc
cessful in the highest degree."
Comparison of the reports of the Adju
tants General of the various States dlsclo.es
the fact that the per cert of attendance
of ofllcers and men Is the largest of any
er.cnmprrent. regimental or brigade, ever
held 'n the I'nlteil States, and he feels Jus
tified In saying that the character of the
work done In camp could not be sur
passed." At S o'clock this mcrning. there was a
Held Inspection of the entire brigade. The
men were lined up In heavy marching or
der on the parade ground. Their flc
coutfrmcnls and clntUng were cleaned and
lolbhcd so that not a speck of dlr: could
!. discovered T!i harnes and guns of
Battery "A" showed the hours of wash
ing anil rubbing which had been expended
upon them
Captain A. W. Adams, Assistant In
spector General of Missouri, directed the
Inspection. Each reglmnt was inspected
bv a IJeutennnt Colonel, taken from ome
other command. The examination was
vcrv rlil'l on this account, as each officer
was anxious for his own regiment to make
the best showing. The In-pectors were
Lieutenant Colonels W. A. Raupp. Cusll
I.echtman. W S. Hendrlck. Charles W.
HoUcvmp and Captain E. R. Eno.
Colonel John I Martin. Judge Advccnte
of the brigade, with his vvlfo and two
daughters, has been here for rcveral days.
Colcnel Martin n presents Governor Ste
phens at the encampment, and much of
the entertainment at headquarters devolves
ulon him.
There has been a cor.tlr.uous stream nf
vhi'ors to camp all day. At morning drill
and dress parade at 7 p. m. the entire camp
ground was lined with vehicles filled with
spectators. The dress parade Is the most
popular feature of the day's programme.
It Is always .-icetcd with enthusiastic
cheers and applause. The band concerts
every afternoon also come In for a big share
of ropularlty.
Tne First Reglmmt possesses the iLuble
of Governor Roosevelt In the rerson of Cap
tain John A. Laird. Ordnance Oflicer. He
roim by no other name than "TedJy"
amorg his brother ofllcers. In the pa
rade Thursday crowds along the streetsj.'.s
covcred the likeness and checreel the Cap
talr as loudly as If he had been the genuine
Teddy. He wears his campaign hat cauxht
up at one side In exactly the same manner
as the Rough Riders did at Santiago.
Th officers arranged to pass Captain
I-alrd off as Roosevelt on the trip home
and have him tr.Kkc speeches from the rear
platform ot the train at different towns, but
this scheme was abandoned on account or
the trip being made at night.
There was a lively blanket tossing to-day
in Company C. of the First Regiment. Com
pany clerk F Rhom.an Smith announced at
lir.-iikfast that there were not sufficient m n
In he whole company to toss him In a
blanket. The words, were Inrdly spoken
whin he was grabbed and before he realized
what had happnnl. was making shott trlpj
skywards at second Interval-. It was njt
until he cried enough and begged for mercy
tluC hi was allowed to touch terra ilrma.
Tho moat successful soclil event of the
w.ek was the military ball slv.n to-night in
honor of Mrs. Harvey Clark by officers of
the Fourth Regiment.
An old building near Camp Bell, which
has tneu used during the week as a com
ml'sary warehouse, was turnca Into a ball
room for the occasion. VMtlng ladles at the
camp and from Springfield, who attended
the affair had u splendid time. About Ivi
line and staff officers attended and there
n-.ie tint nf.-trlv enousrh ladles to feo around.
Excellent dance mii"lc was furnished by the
Fourth Regiment band.
List night the seven Sergeants of Bat-tcrv-
A. with several old members of that
organization held a reunion at Burk's Cafe
in this city. Their session lasted far Into
this miming. The programme consisted of
speeches, singing, splnlng of yards and sev
eral vaudeville numbers by local artists.
A society was organized to which all Bat
terv men who served In Porto Rico are
eligible. Sergeant Hamilton Stone was
elected president of the society which Is
tailed "Original Order of Porto Rlcans."
