The Camp-fire held in Music Hall last Wednesday evening by the surviving vet erans of the 3d and 15th regiments was a very entertaining and profitable gath ering. Capt. E. L. Hovey presided and introduced each speaker with appropri ate remarks. The stage was attractive ly decorated with ferns, a gift from the Pinehurst conservatories. The meeting was opened with prayer by Chaplain . E. Winslow and the first speaker was W. P. Stafford, who pre sented greetings from the town in a short but eloquent speech. He also spoke upon the new duties and added responsi bilities which the newly acquired terri tory has placed upon the United States. His allusion to Admiral uewey cauea forth a storm of applause which plainly showed the feeling in the hearts of the veterans of '61 towards the hero of '98. He referred to the sufferings of the soldier boys and said "Let us get down to per sonalities. Do you suppose if Senator Proctor had been at at the head of the war department that those boys would have been starved ?" (cries of "no, no," from the audience.) He also called upon the people to see that the one responsi ble should get his deserts. Congressman W. W. Grout was the next speaker. As a colonel of the 15th regiment he was received with loud applause and he warmly greeted his old comrades in arms and eloquently referred to the departure of the 3d and 15th reg iments. He spoke of the sufferings of the Vermont boys at Chickamaugaand com nared their condition with that of the boys under Gen. Grant in the Civil War Hesaid, "We haveshown foreign nations that the Americans are as terrible in war as industrious in peace." As the speaker was leavini? the staee one of the veter- nna in the audience shouted, "What about the Philippines?" This seemed to ave iVip congressman a new theme, and his response leit no aouoi in me miuusui his hearers as to how he stood upon that question. He said, "I am not going to give up one foot of the Philippines. We sought to give liberty to the Cubans. How can we turn our backs on the peo ple in the Philippines? These islands were won by our own Vermont Dewey nnrf the Americans can eovern them in telligently and successfully. It is a part 00: -): -!: K mm: u to u. : a as -j a : I Hall Rrp. to ! -! mm! I 4.

Whelpley, touch ing on the Alger-MUes controversy: The statement made seml-offlclally from Washington that Major General was not In command of the Santiago expedition up to the time It left Tampa Is nqt borne out by the official records of tHe war department. These records prove that Miles not only conducted the preliminaries with General Garcia, but was then recognized by the war depart ment as general commanding even ot General Shafter's army. The details General Shafter's actual equipment and method of movement were naturally left to Shatter, but a gen eral plan was devised by General MUet and directions were Issued to Genera) Shatter by him which, after leaving Tampa with the full knowledge that he was subject to orders from General Miles, and up to that time the war de partment recognized this state of affairs, which Is provided for In the federal stat utes, organizing the army of the United States. The above Is shown, according to The Star, by three telegrams. The first of these Is from General Miles to General Garcia, and follows: Dear General I am very glad to have received your officers, General Enrique Collazo and Lieutenant Colonel Carlos Hernandez, the latter of whom returns tonight rtth our best wishes for your success. It would be a very great as sistance If you could have as large a force as possible in the vicinity of the harbor of Santiago de Cuba and com municate any Information, by signals, which Colonel Hernandez will explain to you, either to our navy or to our army on Its arrival, which we hope will be be fore many days. It would also assist us very much If you could drive In and harass any Spanish troops near or In Santiago de Cuba, threatening or attack ing them at all points, and preventing by every means any possible reinforce ments coming to that garrison. While this is being done and before the arrival of our army, If you can seize and hold any commanding position to the east or west of Santiago, or both,, that would be advantageous for the use of our artillery, It will be exceedingly gratifying to us. The second dispatch Is Garcia's reply, showing, The Star asserts, an under standing with General Miles as to a plan of campaign. It follows: ( Will take measures at once to carry out your recommendations, but concen tration of force will require sometime. Roads bad and Cubans scattered. Will mysterious? without delay. Santiago de Cuba well fortified with advanced In trenchments, but good artillery position can be taken. Spanish force approxi mate 12,000 between Santiago de Cuba and Guantanamo; 3000 militia. Will maintain a Cuban force near Holguin, to prevent sending reinforcements to San tiago. The third dispatch Is from the war de partment at Washington and reads: The following extrasf of telegram Ad miral Sampson to secretary of navy re peated for your Information: General Miles' letter received through Colonel Hernandez on June 6. Garcia regards his wishes and suggestions as orders, and immediately will take meas ures to concentrate ftree t tie folate indicated, but he to tjnabl te do so as early as desired on aecount of Ms ex pedition to Banesport, Cuba, but he will march without delay. All of his sub ordinates are ordered to assist to disem bark the United States troops and to place themselves under orders. Santi ago well fortified with advanced en trenchments, but he believes position for artillery can be taken as Miles desires. Approximate 12,000 regulars and 3000 militia between Santiago and Gnantan amo. He has sent force in order to pre vent aid going to Santiago from Holguin. Repeats every assurance of good will and desire to second plan. Alger Wants Information. Washington, Sept. 6. Secretary Algei has sent the following order to Montauk Point: "The New Tork World of about the 28th ultimo published a statement of the death of P.rivate Hugh Parrott of the Eighth regulars, In which It Is charged that when he begged Dr.' to take him to the hospital, the doctor notified him that the hospital was for sick men, and It is reported that Parrott died that night. This account Is sent me by Representative Grosvenor of Ohio, who says there is great indignation in his community over the case, and, If it Is as reported, there should be. I wish an Inquiry immediately instituted to find out about this matter and report made to me. I understand one Sergeant Rich, of the same company or regiment, is under arrest for having complained of this matter. I have heard much of the neglect of the men, much of which is no doubt fictitious; but If there Is any foundation for this statement, or if there are any men ill In the regulars In their tents that are not provided for, I wish to know the reason why and at once, also the names of the officers In command of the regiment and company In each case."
