THE WASHINGTON TIMS, THURSDAY, AUGUST 1912.
MILITARY OUTY SENATE IS $EEKIWJ . AGREEMENT IN VETO First Photographs of District National Guardsmen Taken in Camp at Bolivar Heights K2PsMEii AaWWif Neither Wool Nor' Steel Bill Can Muster. Two.tnirds - Vote. 10 START TODAY mmmimun OARSMEN mam First Dress Parade Wilf Be Held At 5 o'Clock This Evening. (Continued from First Page.) about U and af tr the drill this af tei noon every man here who wears a uniform will be minutely Inspected by the regular army officers to see that nothing resembling: a steel nosed bullet Is about. The blank ammuni tion haB not been distributed Yet, but will be shortly. The officers are tak ing this precautionary measure In ad vance. The old familiar rumor which strikes each encampment about this time every year that n militiaman whose nanie Is. being kept a secret has been found with quantities of ball cartridges In his gun hasn't arrived yet, but is hourly expected. Because of Tuesday's rain and tln storm of last night the Signal Corrs has found It Impossible to get In communication with the outside world yet. It Is expected that the wireless tower will liavo been erected before, nightfall and messages tl'jn may bs fcent direct to "VaBhlnj5t0n. Telephones are being Installed In the camp today. The reputation of the guardsmen for orderly conduct was maintained In Harpers Ferry laet night. Although there were but few of them with en ergy enough to visit the town, those that did enturo forth. In the rain re mained but a short time, attended an Ice cream festival, at which cream wado by a well-known Washington li' nrm, and extensively advertised as- such, was served, and then returned to camp. Wet Weather Not Feared. It Is beginning to look as If the guardsmen will spend another two weeks In camp similar to those of six years ago when they maneuvered at Mt. Gretna, Pa., when It rained the greater portion of the time. They will not suffer the hardships of that campaign, how ever, as this camping ground is so un like that of the Pennsylvania Held. If It should rain every day, the natural slope of the ground where the tents arc pitched and the quality of the soil would make It Impossible for the men to be flooded. Barely had the guardsmen reached the camping ground and had pitched their tents when the first storm cloud ap peared. There was a hurrying and scurrying for utensils with which to "ditch" their tents. It wasn't an hour before each of the hundreds of circular tents In which tho men will sleep were Inclosed In miniature open culverts, over which nothing less than a cloud burst could wash. It didn't rain, however, until long after the last mess of tho day had been finished, and the concert of the Second Infantry Band had concluded. It didn't bother the guaidsmcn the least bit, as they had no desire to see the sights of Harpers Ferry. The hike from their armories to the freight sUtlon In Wash ington wliere they entrained, the two and a half hours on board the trains, and then the long hike up the hill load ing from Harpers Ferry to Camp Ofd way, all of which was followed by the work necessarj to the erection of u tented city, sipped the energy of tho men. But few of tho 1,600 or more men now in camp heard the headquarters bugler sound taps, as most of them had been in slumberland before that time. . . . This promises to be an Ideal encamp ment for the men. While Colonel Gar rard and the regular army officers, as well as the brigade staff of the militia expect to give the guardsmen some pointers about this little game of war and preparing for war, which have been i?r 'A! vprtvi -s -s; - - r - -vs. L fc-Ni.

Unless the privileges accorded them are abused they will be given the free dom of the town at all reasonable hours.

No passes will be Issued to any of the men which will permit them to leave the State of West Virginia. If any guardsman Is caught crossing tho line Into Maryland or Virginia, it means many weary days in the guardhouse This part of West Virginia Is "dry." and colonel Garrard said todfcy that (thls certainly will remain a "dry" camp, ii in mcunuuu Duvtrugea Dcins brought In J concerned.

Is ten-year-old Ford Harvey, son. of Col. Wll nanm K. Harvey, commanding officer of the First. Ford, who occupies a cot in his fathers tent, has a complete out fit, although In miniature, of B militia man He keeps tho rules of the camp to the letter. He spent his first day here visiting the men who constitute his father's regiment. For the first time In ears, tho Dis trict National auard will spend two Sundays In camp, which means that the largest number of visitors the militia men ever has entertained, will see them at the Harpers Ferry encampment this year. Ahead? provisions for entertain ing hundreds of Washlngtonlans have been put under way, and a series of jipcclal trains from Washington wilt bu operated to Harpers Ferry, both the coming Sunday and the following one. Capt. George Dudley, chaplain of the Second Tnfantry, has with him In camp this ypar a mosquito netting which he has used every year since the District olnntecrs went to Cuba during the war with Spain, and one which has as sociations which make it Invaluable to him it was presented to him by Clara Barton, founder of the Amerlca'n Hed Cross Society. To his fellow officers he told this story today: ".Miss Barton asked me to come over to a small Cu ban town and officiate at the funera! of one of her nurses. When the serv ices were concluded she asked me if there was anything she could give me. As the baggage of the soldiers had mis carried, and we had been without equipments of any kind for a month. 1 asked for the netting, which I have with me. That It was of exceptionally good quality Is shown by the good con dition In which it Is today." An Interesting as well as Important event from the standpoint of the men, took place at tho close of tho day'B ex ercises yesterday, when representatives of the United States Government, in the person of the regular army Inspec tors, mustered In the officers and men which constitute the District mllltla. Every person who will receive pay for services during the encampment, was required to present himself to one of the four Inspectors and answer to his name, a Blmllar exercise will be given at the conclusion of the encampment. Assigned to the Second Infantry as inspector, is Lieut. F. B. Eastman, formerly of the Tenth Infantry, United States army, but now detached. Lieu tenant Eastman Is a Murylander by birth, and Is rapidly making many friends In all the organizations of the mllltla. Despite the fact that the -day pre ceding the one on which the guardsmen were due In camp was a rainy one, and that nearly all the tents which had been erected, weie torn from their moorings by the heavy storm, but little Inconvenience has been caused. By Thursday night all the shower baths will be In working order, and the water from the many artesian wells which dot the large farm which Is being used as a maneuvering camp, will again be clear, and can be used for drinking purposes. The water on the Cavalier farm, by the way, has been analyzed nnd pronounced perfectly pure by the Government chemists. The guardsmen will be in no danger at contracting dis eases from this supply. i. During the absence of General Har ries Col. Charles H. Ourand, command ing the First Infantry, who Is the senior officer of the brigade, Is In com mand of the guardsmen. It Is not known when Goneral Harries will reach camp. An agreement will b worked out In the Senate today, It Is expected, for' a vote on tho wool and steel bills to morrow. They will come before 'the Senate on the question of passing them over the veto of the President. Canvasses of tho Senate Indicate; that neither bill can be passed over the veto. Senator Simmons tried to get an agree ment this morning to vote on both bills tomorrow afternoon. After discussion, this fell through. Senator Bmott raised the question of pairs and favored pair ing on a ont-to-two system. Senatbr Simmons wa not In favor of this. The upshot was no agreement, but it was said one would be reached later In the day. Fight to Free Brandt Is Renewed at Albany ALBANY. N. Y. Aug. 1C The fight to securo liberty for Foulk A.
