It having been reported to the Commander-in-Chief
that Companies A,' E
and K, of the 'Third Regiment, struck
camp-and returned home on yesterday,
without leave from competent authority,
it is now ordered that Capt. E. F. Young,
of Company A, Captain W. A. Bobbitt, of
Company E, and Captain Max Lowen
stein, of Company K, make immediate
report to the Adjutant-General stating by
what authority their companies left
camp. Should they fail to make this
report within, five davs from the receipt
of this ordenTpr should thej same be un
satisfactory, the- commissions -of the of?
Ccers will be revoked" ano thtompaniea

IL The following report from the Ad
jutant General contains the responses of
the omcers involved and such additional
facts and circumstances bearing upon the
case as are necessary to be known : .
Office of the Adjutant General,!
. ' Asheville, Aug. 19th, 1885. f
Special Report No. 2.
lo His Excellency Gov. A. M. Scales:
Sib : I have the honor to submit here
with the several responses to General
Order No. 7, made by Captains Bobbitt,
Young and Lowenstein, and also a letter
from Col. Glenn upon the same subject,
and the application for leave of absence
for companies A. E and K, made to me
by Col. Glenn on the 28th day of July,
said papers "being marked respectively
exhibits A, B, C, D and E. '
Tho application for leave for these
companies was filed by Col. Glenn at my
headquarters at Camp .Scales about noon
on Tuesday the 28th day of July. I re
ceived and read the application about 1
o'clock that day, being absent from camp
on duty at the hour it was filed. I im
mediately reported the matter to your
Excellency in company with Col. Glenn
and Maj. Smith. You declined to grant
the application for leave, except as to
Col. Glenn and Maj. Smith; whom you
permitted to go home on the afternoon
of that day. -
At the time this application for leave
was filed, companies A E and K had al
ready commenced breaking camp, were
packing np, and moving off. In reply
to the explanation offered by Capt. Bob
bitt, I beg leave to say that the instruc.
tions to which he refers were special,
written directions to the several regi
mental commanders, giving them in
structions with respect to the care and
preservation and return of public and
hired property in their possession, to
wit: the tents, stoves, cooking utensils,
&c, and also with respect to striking the
tents and marching to the depot. All
this, of course, had reference to the de
parture of the troops at the close of the
encampment. It was simply preparatory
and I am at a lone ndnrstand how
anyTme-conld have Refcn'Oaisiea iiy saurrf
instructions, or could have construed
them into permission for any company
or legiment to leave camp. Plainer lan
guage could not have been used.
Capt. Youngs assertion tnat oetore
going to Camp 1 was , advised that nis
company could not remain in camp dur
ing the ten days, is not strictly true. I
was only advised that some ot his men
would be obliged to return before the
ten days were out. : Capt. Young wrote
me on .July llith as follows: '.would
like to know something about my men
leaving camp before the ten days are out.
Some of them cannot remain the whole
ten days, and I have promised to let
In regard to the explanations offered
by Col. Glenn. It is true I told him that
I wiuld grant leaves of absence to men
of his regiment whom he should sav
were compelled to go back home before
the encampment closed; but this referred
to individuals only, and I expected, of
course, that the applications would be
made in the usual way according to the
Regulations with which I presumed all
officers were acquainted; and that no
man would leave camp until his appli
cation -was acted upon by the officer
commanding the camp. Previous to the
28th of July I had granted leaves of ab
sence to a detachment ef men belonging
to Company A, and several members of
Company K, upon Col. Glenn's written
That Col. Glenn should have construed
my instructions to regimental command
ers about breaking camp into permission
for his regiment to leave camp before
July 30, passes my comprehension. The
instructions were written, and were
couched in language certainly x plain
enough to be understood by any one.
No word or act of mine authorized Col.
Glenn to grant permission to companies
A, E and K to go home before his appli
cation for leave of absence for them was
acted upon, but it is clear that the of
ficers and men of these several compa
nies departed from ramp under the be
lie! that leave from pioper authority had
been obtained, and tliev must be ac
vuitted of any charge of insubordination
or intentional disobedience ..of orders.
The responsibility for their unauthor
ized departure rests' solely; with the
commanding- officer; of the Regiment,
who exDlains his conduct in a letter to
me dated August 4th hereto appended

I have the honor to be your obedient

Gen. Johnstone Jones, Asheville, N. C. .'-K
Sir : In explanation for myself and
Company E.. 3rd Regiment, allow me to
say that the reasons lor my company's
leaving camp : . ' ; -
1st. That we wem assured by col.
Glenn on the 25th inst. that we could
leave at the time we did, and that an or
der-was received on Tuesday morning
instructing-us how to strike tents, what
to do with camp equipage, &c., and that
I understood that was permission for my
company to leave. T - V r '
t- 2nd. mat 1 was riniormea Dy l-oi.
Glenn on Tuesday the day my company
left) that he had seen Got. Scales and
that he refused permission for the com
panies to leave, and.requestinjme to see
the Governor iin person which I did.
Th Rovernor said to me that he refused
permission for me .to leave, but that if
Hnv nf mv men were compelled to leave,
to let them go. Whereupon I went to
th Denot according to his instructions
nA ordered back all the men that could
stay. - I would Bay farther that Sergeants
J. F. Rogers and S. M. Bobbitt and priv
ate E. T. Jones came back, and that they
nr!th mvnfclf did not leave nntu excused
hwonrselt I would say further that
j j -
- . CAMPMEST.
we were here under order jknd subject
to orders.' I would sav further that I
complied strictly with the orders, which
I nersonallv received from Gov.. RmW
I have violated no orders that I know of
and have complied strictly- with . orders.
Thc-eircumstanees under which ? my
company was placed has been fully ex
plained to you by me personally. ;
In iustice to myslf and company I
wish to say, we have- never knowingly
violated any rules or regulations. . That
we are always ready for any duty or to
obey any commands. That I wish it to
be understood that myself,, and all the
men wno could possibly stay, were here
until excused. That in allowing any
men to depart that I was instructed by
the Governor to allow those to go, whose
business called them: home. Hoping
this will be satisfactory, f I am.' :

Dear Sir.--ln. reply ; to General Order
No. 7V I beg to submit the following as
my explanation for leaving camp with
my command before the provided period:
I. I, as commander of Company A, 3rd
Regiment, deny that I left camp'without
proper authority. .
II. Before going into eauip you wre
advised that owing to tM busy season at
this place that my -comriiand could not
remain in camp during the 10 days, and
in your favor of the 17th' July to me on
this subject you say "About your men
leaving camp I refer -you, to your com
manding officer Col. Glenn. I suppose
for good cause he would let some of his
men off." .
IIL I applied in person to you for en
dorsement of transportation fur some of
my men (after my Colonel had endorsed
same) which you did endorse. Was that
not competent authority ? -
IV. J his 'etc me wr.h only handful of
my command. I made application for
transportation, for .-emainder of my
company to my Colonel and also to the
commander-in-chief which was granted.
Was not that also competent authority ?

Gen. Johnstone Jones :
Dear Sir : In replv to General Order
No. 7, received to-day will state that I
greatly regret the necessity of my leav
ing the encampment before inspection
as well as the issuing of order.
Our departure was made with no in
tent to set aside the regular military dis
cipline you wish to instill in the Guard
or with any idea of 'showing any disres
pect to my superior office b. - As you are
a ware many members of my company
are working men, mechanics at various
trades, and laborers in the tobacco ware
houses and it was with considerable loss
to themselves that they, went to the en-
CatP P"i fm t a II inri: t W&&-. rnally fi.
hardship to expect thenVCST" remain the
full time and risk the danger of losing
their places, etc. .
.Before leavng .camp I understood that
the 3rd Regiment would be dismissed
and that Col. Glenn gave permission to
companies that desired to leave to do so.
I had no written or positive orders from
Col. Glenn to leave, hut acted on that
impression (which I da not think will
be disputed) that the 3rd Regiment could
leave and that he had so reported to you.
I hope that you will be satisfied that my
act in bringing my company home was
not done in a spirit, to encourage a
breach of discipline or in disrespect to
you or Gov. Scales and that the matter
will appear in proper light to vour entire
satisfaction. Should you consider (which
I trust not) that my act should be
punished in the interest of keeping dis
cipline in the state Guard, then i hope
you will let the blame and punishment
fall on me and not on the members of
my company. With great respect.
Your obedient servant,
Capt. Com. Co. K, 3id Reg. NCS G.
Exhibit D. - -Cuarlottb,
N..C, Aug. 4, 1885.
Gen. Johnstone Jones,
Dear Sir : I enclose you a communi
cation received from Capt. Young this
morning as I was about starting here. In
regard to this matter. I know it was the
wish of the men to remain. bu business
compelled them to leave. You told me
and told a great many in my command
you would grant any leave from my reg
ment if I said it was necessary.. The
men knowing this, applied to me. Those
who had to leave at once I applied and
got leave for ; the others I persuaded to
stay as long as possible. They said they
could not stay longer than Tuesday, and
1 promised to get them leave., I applied
to you lor leave, and told the men I was
sure it would be granted, and they
thought when they left they had leave.
It was impossiqle for the men to 6tay
longer, and acting on what you told me,
I promised them if they would remain
nntil Tuesday evening I would get them
leave, and they supposed of course it was
granted. 'Yours respectfully,

Dear Sir : Please grant leave of ab
sence and furnish transportation . for
Companies A, and K of 3d Regiment,
and also for the Colonel, Major and staff
of 3d Keg t- 1 regret very much to have
to ask this before the review, but my
men are tobacconists, and their ..employ
ers have writtten for them, as a great deal
of tobacco is on the market, and it is im
possible for them to stay longer.-
, very respectiuuy, ; :

Col. 3d Reg't N. C. S. G.
III. The powers of the Comniander-in
Chief in all cases of this kind are clearly
defined. The Code section 3,268 says. :
'The Commander-in-Chief shall have full
power and authority to revoke any com
mission or to disband any company, or
companies, 'whenever In his judgment it
shall be necessary or expedient for - the
public good or for the good of the service.'
Acting under this law. General Order No.
1 was written by my direction, ' and I as
sume all the responsibility growing out
of it. .-. ' - . ' - :'V '
. IV, . After such consideration of this
case as its importance to all concerned
demands, t find the facta to be as follows:
x. That Companies; AVE & K of the 3d
Reeriment left their camp in Asheville.
where they had been ordered by the Com-
mander-m-VJhiet, witnoui competent au
thority. . ;. ."T'.-r;-."-3.
That said Companies had no authori
ty from any source for their action on that
day, except jrom tneir voionei
" .3. That Colonel Glenn applied in writing
through thelregular channel to the oflicet
in command of the camp for leave of ab
sence for a portion of Company. A on a
day previous to the 28th day of July, and
the same ,was duly granted and the men
left under such permission; that he applied
in writing on the iSth for leave of absence
for Companies E and K and the remainder
of Company A, and that' this leave wa
not only positively declined by the Commander-in-Chief,
but Col. Glenn and Maj.
Smith were informed that while, each case
upon application would be considered
upon its merits no leave would be granted
for companies as a whole, and that the
companies must be notified at once, and
that such as had left camp would not re
ceive transportation and must return and
re-erect their tents.
- 4. That' Colonel" Glenn authorized his
men to strike tents and leave .camp before
action was taken on his application for
leave of absence. , ,
V. The statement' made by the Adju
tant General to Colonel Glenn, that leaves
of absence wau Id be erranted to such men
of the 3d Regiment as Col. Glenn shou!d
Say were obliged to go home, nadxelerence
to - individuals who should applv-in the
regular way for leave of absence, 'and : the"
action of Colonel . Glenn in allowing part
of his regiment to leave upon such verbal
statement was without authority. While
in my judgment his action cannot be-justified,
yet it appears to me from his cxpla
nation and all the facts ot the case that he
acted under misapprehension;and not from
any Jspirit of insubordination, disobedience
of orders or disrespect of superior officers.
VI. Under all the circumstances of the
case it appears to my satisfaction that the
members of Companies A, E & K broke
camp and went home under the belief that
leave of absence had been obtained for
them from proper authority. In view of
this fact the officers and men of these
several companies are acquitted of Wame
in the premises. It is proper in this con
nection to state that Captain Bobbitt and
Sergeants Rogers and Bobbitt and
private E. T. Jones, of Company E, re
turned and remained in camp until given
leave in regular way by the officers com
manding the camp ; and also that the de
tachment of Company K that left before
the 28th went under proper Authority.
..VII. This was the first, and I trust may
be the last, occurrence of the kind in the
State Guard. Cheerful obedience to or
ders has always characterized the organi
zation, and to this fact is largely due the
high estimation in which it is .held by the
public. Discipline is essential in all mili
tary bodies. . Without it, the State Guard
would be worse . than useless.- By means
of it, the Guard has become an institution
of recognized value to the State, and only
by means of it can it retain the confidence
and gopd will of the people which it has
hitherto won for itself.

A 'Snake' in a Boot. .
To be suddenly aroused from sleep by
the fire alarm is enough to unsettle the
nerves of a more social man than our ex
cellent chief of the Hook and Ladder
Company; and it is but natural under the
excitement, for one to run into his pants
hind parts frontwards and encounter
tnHr'i jillm:' ii.ii.. --ffi.-rlt -r.- lrfc V
addition to this to jump out of bed. and
jumping into his boot to find a snake in
one of them, as one of our said cl-ief did
the other night, is more than any com
munity ought to expect any man to have
to submit to. Tho valiant Captain find
ing an obstacle to his prompt ingress in
to his bot, ran his hand in, pulled the
thing out, and, while . standing to his
duty by trying to pull on his boot with
one hand, he violently shook the little
thing extracted from the boot with the
other to see what was in it. It was empty,
too dead to hurt, but -was solid enough
to hinder just a while. How the thing
got into the boot is thaabsorbing query;
hut having' gotten in was doubly
aggravating, for the occasion, in being so
innocent of helpfulness.

Died, in Baltimore oathe 13th inst.,
James V. Loughran. He was the
youngest broihei of the Messrs. Lough
ran of this city, and was born in Balti
more on the 21st of julv, 18G3, and con
sequently was 22 years of age. He had
but recently gbno to Baltimore to spend
a few days, preparatory to assuming the
management of the extensive furniture
establishment of his brother John B.
Loughran, ia Norfolk, Va., but soon af
ter arrival was taken down with typhoid
fever, which resulted so sadly on the
date stated above. He was a young man
of excellent character, splendiu rh vsioue.
and fine habits, was genial and -warmhearted
as the sons of tne Emerald Isle
always are, and made many friends in
this city ' during his -short stay this
spring. , v -
Messrs'. Loughran of this city hastened
to Baltimore on receipt of telegrams stat
ing the immediate danger of their broth

to see him alive, and only had the mel

family in sincere but not demonstrative
grief. Mr. Loughran was a member of
bt. incents Lyceum of Baltimore, and
wag buried from St. Vincent' Church.
There were eight pall bearer?, 'members
of the same society, and Father Dido
delivered a most impressive sermon, and
closed the last sad chapter in this most
estimable young man's life. Mr. Lough
ran was engaged to be married to a
charming young lady of Baltimore, and
another most touching circumstance of
the event was the fact that it called to
gether the entire family who had not
been together for nearly twenty-two
years. It is needless to try to comfort
those left behind. We can only sym-
fiatliize for the void in their hearts, and
