Beers Praises Regulars l Who Managed Great Bivouac on Historical Field BRIDGEPORT VETERANS STOOD THE ORDEAL Celebration Without Historical Analogy Can Never Occur Again-Most Useful Hap pening Since Declaration of Independence Was Signed Back from the big reunion of the Blue and -Gray at Gettysburg affable as ever "and brimful of pleasant mem ories cf his experiences during his visit to the historic battleground Cap tain Alfred B. Beers, commander-in-chief of the Grand -Army of the - Re public, said today: "No such celebration Has ever taken place . before and none like v it can ever take place again. Its power and influence for patriotism and for the good of the country cannot be esti mated. It will go down in history as an event fraught With more - pow er for good than any gathering since the signing of the Declaration of In dependence. ' 'tin some respects the camp was the most remarkable ever held in tfie world. It was not unusual during the war for 100,000. or more men to be in one camp, but thosetcamps. cov ered a very large area and only -parts of the camp and the men in it were visible at once, - ' ' "Here at Gettysburg was a- camp ac commodating more than 50,000 vetei- ans and in time of war capable- of ae corn mod a. ting 65.000 soldiers all In a space of two miles equareso that" the entire camp was visible by day and by right, to a single glance of 'the leu man eye . This camp -was erected and cared for by soldiers of the regu lar army under the direction of Major B. . Nonnoyla and Major - W . it. Grove and toe much credit and praise cannot be given these officers for the efficient- manner In which all the ar rangements were carried out. '"Major "Normoyle has been the of ficer in Charge of government relief during the floods in Mississippi, Ohio, and: Indiana and a man better fitted for the work could not have been se lected. Major Grove is a veteran of the Spanish war. The -camp was laid out like a city with avenues and streets, but no city ever was as. elab orately lighted at night as x was that camp-. . "Ah abundant supply of -pure water was - furnished from . artesian wells driven for the occasion. Every 500 feet were modern bubble, drinking fountain . where the veterans slaked their thirst with Ice cooled water. "The tents with the exception -of a very few which were erected late, were supplied with cots - and with mats -eo that, the veterans in getting out of bed did not iiave to step upon the bare ground. Each veteran was furnished a tin plate, cup and knife, fork and spoon, which he was per mitted to take away with him as a souvenir when he left the camp. There was an abundance of blankets eo that the veteran who might be cold in the night had plenty of covering. The streets were policed every day. The sinks were sufficient In number and located, at a distance from the camp to prevent infection from them. "The food was supplied by 1,500 cooks, it was abundant in quantity, well cooked and of great variety. One day 40,000 loaves of bread; were bak ed. Soldiers of the regular army were in charge of all the streets of the camp and assisted the veterans in ev ery way. There -were no harsh meas ures, no .unkind 'words and officers and men of the regulars assisted Hhe veterans in every way and paid no attention to those who were inclined to be a little testy or disagreeable. It was to be expected that there would be some disagreeable ones in an army of more than 50,000.' "The result was there was but little complaint, by any of the Veterans about the accommodations or the food. In individual cases where complaints were made the causes were much less than would have occasioned complaint in active service. "I perosnally took occasion to make extensive inquiries without disclosing my identity as commander-in-chief. I questionad the veterans regarding the camp and their treatment and the gen eral expression of opinion was: 'It's a magnificent camp, our quarters are everything we could expect, the food is first class , and our treatment could not.be excelled. "So I think you may safely, set it down that 99 per cent. of the veter ans were perfectly satisfied. "The access to the camp was line. Every railroad except one delivered the veterans in the center of .the camp over tracks laid 'expressly for this pur pose. The only railroad which did not do this, ran Its trains on a shut tle schedule from the main station at Gettysburg to one mile of the camp. The train service left - nothing to be desired. "All the details of the camp preced ing its direct establishment were ar ranged by the Pennsylvania Gettys burg commission, of which Col. J. M. Schoolmaker of Pittsburg was presl d -nt and Col. Iuis Beitler of Harris burg was secretary. All the details were worked out by this commission and it was a herculean task. A large part of the work fell upon Col. Beitler. S well and so courteously did he car ry out the work that he erdeared him self to all. Ob Wednesday evening, July 2, the Gettysburg commission, all the state commissions and the invited guests gathered and presented Col. Beitler with a magnificent silver lov ing cup, a bound volume of . . letters signed by members of thei various commission and' guests "of the state in expressing appreciation of his ser vices, i ' "Col. Beitler was' also presented with- a Gettysburg commission badge of solid gold. -,- , "It would be impossible to describe the scenes each day. The veterans covered the field in groups, generally assembling - at the spots-- where they fought and at points all over the field could be seen groups of men in Blue and in Gray mingling together and comparing notes as to their experi ences of fifty years ago. For many it was their firBt visit to .. the bat tlefield since the war.- ,. The Confederate soldiers entered f ujijy into the spirit of the occasion and I have yet to learn that there .jfsasfc the slightest rlppleo, discord ber tween .the men in' Blue .and the men in Gray. The. Confederates both as individuals and;;, their- speakers, ac cepted the. situation and - were a proud to be on the field as we were. They - applauded loudly all sentiments of fealty to the Union and loyalty to the flag. - I heard one say: 'This is our country and ' that is our flag and we are Just as ready to fight for them both as you .'Yankees, are.' "The : meetings in tha great tent which held 15,000 -men were to my mind the most impressive parts . of the gathering-.- - There Confederate and Union , soldiers sat side by side each applauding and voicing any sen timent of loyalty to the flag and the Union. ,- "I doubt if there has been a larger ratherinr .of distinguished men on this continent. Aside from the mili tary characters present the . President of the United States was there, sena tors, statesmen and public men with out number, the governors of 20 states and other notables too numerous to mention.- 1 . "I think the meeting at Gettysburg cements forever the differences of the states -which -brought on the Civil War." . - CAPT. -FRENCH BACK FROM GETTYSBURG Oldest Member of Bridge port Party First to Re turn, But Had a Good Time. " The first veteran of the Connecticut party who attended the reunion at Gettysburg to return home was Cap tain Wilson French of Stratford. Cap tain French is 76 years old and the oldest of the party that left "Bridge port Monday morning. .. Captain French returned home Thursday night beoause of illness. In describing some of his experi ences - at Gettysburg Captain French said today: : "I was 111 most of the-time I was at Gettysburg so" I concluded to return home rather than go to a hospital -at Gettysburg. The . Connecticut party did "not arrive at the cam puntil 11:30 Monday. night and when we got there we had . some difficulty locating our tents. Then we found we had no cots or blankets. I got a' cot and blanket for the tent I was. assigneds to and went in search of a water bucket. When I returned I found a party of Virginians had taken possession of my tent, cot, blanket and all. "I complained at -headquarters and was given a cot and good quarters in a tent close by headquarters. It was then- nearly 5 o'clock and the drum corps woke me up at 6 o'clock when they began to parade. The food was good and well cooked but as each, man only had one plate we had to take It all from soup to dessert in the same dish. "I had a delightful time while I was there though." ' ' LORI? HOPE WINS FRENCH GOLF TITLE La' Boulie, France, July - 5 Lord Charles Hope of England today won the . amateur . golf championship of France by beating E. A. Lassen, a former - British amateur - champion at the. .thirty-seventh, hole., Homeward March Of Veterans From Gettysburg Begun The Blue and the Gray Now Indissoluble Blended "Beat Time" to Samex Marital Air. Gettysburg, Pa., July 5 Thousands of veterans began their homeward march, today, after a last exchange of greetings with the new comrades they found here. Before .night, more than half of the army of 50,000 probably will have gone. Tomorrow the vet erans will be given breakfast, the last meal in camp. That is what the army says but those who have seen the kindly courtesy-' that has .been shown to the veterans by these busy men throughout a trying week, know that they will -be fed as long ais they stay here, if it's a month. On the crest of Cemetery Ridge stands the statue which New Tork has raised to her men who fought and died at Gettysburg. On the, top of a tall marble shaft is the heroic figure of a woman. In her right hand ie a wreath, in her left a thin etaf f crowned witli a liberty . cap. Her head is bowed as it m grief but that lona right arm with its wreath of brass points out straight toward Seminary Ridge, a mile away, across the fields,', where Longstreet stood with bowed head watching Pickett and his brave men make their futile charge. New Tork raised the statue to her own dead and beneath, in a half circle are rows of graves of her men who fell here, 60 years ago. It takes but ' little Imagination to make that tall column with its speak ing figure that molded voice of the nation. It takes .but a littlo touch of sentiment that has grasped every man who has come to the veterans' camp to think of that outstretched arm as lifted in benediction to the. men who lived and the . men who died on this greatest battfield of the war. Down 100 yards through the trees from the statue runs the Emmettsburg road, the main artery from Gettys burg to the camp. Over that road in the heat of a July eun the veterans of the armies of Meade and Lee, to day, streamed homeward,- tired possi bly ; but lifted out of themselves by four days of a reunion euch as would seem hardly possible in - any . other Country. In the--world. '-v Many a veteran who passed over the road, today, and many who have pass ed before turned with streaming eyes o catch a last glimpse of that 'long arm with wreath as he trudged' the dusty road. It Is the first landmark that stands high enough to be seen on the. way to the battlefield and it is the last as the town swallows up the road. ' The army" tents probably- will stand here until next week. The regulars will stay until the last veteran is gone, Some time before thef end of the month the brown city will come down, the army will go back to other tasks- and leave the field of Gettys burg to memory. That the reunion will live in mem ory as long as life lasts for the men who were here cannot be doubted. Its Influence would be hard to calculate but if the old men who gathered around its fires act as they acted liere, talk as they talked here, the war be tween the states Is really over so far as those who fought in it are con cerned. The- "unreconstructed "Reb" and the unforgiving "Tank" will be hard to find. MajoF General LIggitt, in command of the Gettysburgh camp, paid high tribute, today, to Major E. J. Nor moyle, army quartermaster, who has been its guiding. spirit. He said: "To perfect organization and co ordination down to the last detail, the conscientious devotion to their work on the part of all the officers and en listed men on duty here, the success of the encampment is due. "It may be observed that the suc cessful handling and supply of a per sonnel "the equivalent in number of three army divisions has been quickly accomplished by excellent system. When one remembers that this per sonnel ls composed of men who aver age seventy years of age, coming from all parts of the country and the mortality- and sick percentage . has been far below what might have been con sidered normal, the remarkable char acter of this great undertaking be comes more clear." - WAR VETERAN AT 107 REJOICES IN REMAINING SINGLE Los Angeles, July 5 Daniel Turner, a veteran of the Civil war residing at Santa Monica, who celebrated his. 107th birthday today, thanks his judgment in . remaining single for his long life and apparent good health. "My (life was never blighted by worry or sickness -because, I never married," said "Uncle" Dan. "Mar ried men die younger than bachelors. Sometimes death is a welcome relief to the man who gets a modern -wife." Turner chopped a quantity of wood to show that Infirmaties bare not claimed him. 2,000 STRIKERS AT FUNERAL OF MEMBER KILLED IN RJOT Paterson, N. J., July 5 Two thousand striking silk mill workers; a fifth of .them women, marched today at the funeral of "Vincenzo Madonna, a strik er who was shot and killed in a re cent riot here. -The men all wore red ribbons in. their coat lapels; the wom en red waists and saefaes. W. D. Haywood and Carlo Tresca, under in dictment for inciting strikers to riot, walked at the head of th Procession. There, was jio disorder. ...... JAMES FELTER KILLED BY TRAIN CARRYING WILSON Well Known Gardener Meets Tragic Death at Railroad Station at Mid night. Identification of the victim of a train bearing President Wilson to the White Mountains was completed this morning by a blood-stained bottle of medicine which was picked up by an expressman near the spot where the remains were picked up. The pres cription was traced to St. Vincent's hospital, where it was found that it had been given to James Felter, for eight years a gardener at that insti tution. He left yesterday morning to visit New Tork, and when last seen had fy gold watch and twenty dollars, -besides the bottle on his person. When found there was but 2 cents in the torn and shredded garments of Felter. Identi fication of the body was completed by fragments of clothing identified by employes at the Institution. It is not known how Felter came upon, the tracks, but he was struck at the local railroad station by the train leaving New Tork at 11:10, reaching Bridgeport shortly after midnight. Apparently the engine and wheels of the entire train passed over hie body as he was taken from beneath the car ahead of that in which the President and -his party slept. The Presidential partly was unaware of the fatality. Besides having spent eight years in faithful service to the local institu tion, where the grounds were always kept in beautiful condition, Felter was known widely as an excellent gardener having attended to many lawns and flower beds of private , families throughout this city. His services as well as hie personality will be great ly missed by . a ' host of persons to whom he was favorably known. JUDGE FREEMAN DIES SUDDENLY OF HEART DISEASE Hartford, July 5. -Word ' was re ceived in this city this morning of the sudden.- death, in Baltimore, Friday night of Jadge Harrison B. Freeman, for -inore than 40 years - one -of the leading men of Hartford. Heart dis ease was the cause. . Judge Freeman had gone to Baltimore to spend the Fourth with his daughter, Mrs. Henry C. Matthews, and died at her summer home near that city. Judge Freeman was born In Hart ford, September 5, 1838. He was a graduate of Tale, class Of 1862, and was among its most. loyal alumni.- For many years he had been a familiar figure at the football games in New Haven and at Princeton and Harvard. He studied at the Harvard law school and was admitted to the Hartford county bar in 1864. From 1871 to 1874 he was judge of the Hartford police court. In 18 87 be was elected judge of probate for the Hartford dis trict and continued in that office until he resigned in 1908 by - reason of reaching the age limit of .70 years. He was admittedly an authority on matters pertaining to probate law. He was a Republican in general politics though in the latter years of his life inclined to be an independent. He was a member of the Center Church; of the D. KL. E. Tale; a veteran of the Hartford city guard, a member of the Hartford club and of the Varuna Boat Club of Tale. The body of Judge Freeman will be brought to Hartford tonight and the funeral will be held some time Monday. Judge Freeman is survived by his wife whom he married in 1869, two daughters and a son, the latter, H. B. Freeman, Jr., being a well .known Hartford lawyer who ' was associated with-his father in practice. TRAMPLING ON U.S. FLAG SUBJECT OF COMPLAINTS Washington, July 5. Two incidents, involving desecrations of national flags which marked the celebrations, yesterday, are expected to form the subject of complaints to the state de partment, though so far nothing has been heard from them. The" affair at Winnepeg, Man., Involving the tramp ling of an American flag at a British parade, probably cannot be made the basis of an official protest for the rea son that international law- does not guarantee the protection of flags of a foreign country except where they are displayed over official buildings. In the incident at Tucson, Ariz., however, where the flag over the Mexican consulate . was torn down, the state department probably will feel obliged to request the local au thorities to make a. proper apology and amends to the Mexican consul. If that can- be "done without involving any officfal recognition of the Huerta government which appears to be the great apprehension of the state de partment at this juncture. Aviator Courts Death Because Crowd Jeered Aurora, Ills., July 5 Aviator O. T. Davis narrowly escaped death, yester day, when, against his better judg ment, he weakened before the jeers of a crowd and made a flight under unfavorable conditions. He was bad ly injured when his machine became unmanageable as he tried to make a landing and fell. He will probably recover . , OLDEST AND YOUNGEST OF VETS AT GETTYSBURG ARE SEPARATED BY HALF A CENTURY IN I V " ' !

The great age of Weiss made him, perhaps, the most interesting figure of all the old men in camp He stood the heat fairly well, but grave, fears5 were felt that the experience would prove too exciting, for, his feeble frame to bear.- Colonel Clem is the only Union officer who fought in the Civil War new on the active army list. Colonel Clem when 10 years old entered Company C,Twenty-second Michigan infantry, on May 1, 1863, as a drummer and served till September 10, 1864.
