An4 bow Realizes the Enormity
of His Crime.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 14.-When
Walter Rower, the Tennessee volunteer,
who murdered Henry Hlldebrand,
a clerk In the Spreckles market, during
a drunken spree, was booked at the city
tuwn ta o/iher uk He hand
ed in a lady's gold watch and 165 in
coin and asked Chat the valuables be
cared for. Then he wept and said he
realized his deep disgrace but claimed
not to recollect anything abdut the
"My father and mother live in Stevenson,
Ala.," said he. "My father is
a superintendent* of the Nashville, Chattanooga
& St Louis railroad. I am a
member of the Slgna Nu fraternity and
a graduate of the Vundorbilt university,
and am entitled to, the degree of M. D.
When the war broke out I was a student
in classics but left school and enlisted
In the Tennessee regiment at
Memphis. My knowledge of medicine
gained me the position of steward of
Company 6, which position I still hold.
I have telegraphed my father and expect
him to come to this city at once."
Judge J. H. Guerry, of Georgia, who
has lately come to this state to practice
law, called on the prisoner and
tendered his services as a friend of the
family, and was accepted. He will appear
In court when Rosser Is arraigned.
Eye witnesses of the affair state that
Rosier flred the' fatal shot without
provocation. He fought against arrest
and almost succeeded in escaping in the
excitement, having slipped one^hand
tha ahwi handcuffs. While wait
ing for the patrpl wagon he Is said to
have pushed the dead body of his victim
with the toe of his shoe.
Colonel Smith, of the Tennessee regiment,
deeply regrets the odium which
the crime has cast upon his command.
He will compel all the men to surrender
their weapons and may restrict their
liberty in the future.
Some of the members of this regiment
were concerned In a recent brutal assault
on a negro near the Presidio.
Colonel Smith, however, declares that
most of his men are members of southern
families of good social standing, but
a bad element got in during the hasty
recruiting necessary to Increase its companies
from eighty-four to 106 men.
Last night's murder caused General
Miller and Colonel Smith to send out
guards to arrest drunken soldiers and
return them to camp, and this work was
continued until an early hour this
morning. The appearance of the armed
guards on the prominent streets caused
considerable excitement. Albert S. Emmett,
a private of the Twentieth Kan?
?thf* attpmtvfc ol
the provost guard to take nlm from c
saloon and struck the captain of the
guard a blow Chat knocked him down
Emmett was arrested.
A private of the Tennessee regiment
who gave his name as James Johnson
was arrested for discharging a pistol
Corporal Conley. of the Seventh California,
was jabbed by a bayonet in the
hands of a Washington soldier for attempting
to prevent an arrest. Thew
were several other encounters but n<
one was seriously hurt.

Some Exposures of It In the Cas?o of Indiana
Indianapolis Journal: It has been reported
In the northern part of the state
that *0 per cent of Colonel Studebakor's
regiment ware sick, and that the men were
"dying like sheep," whatever that may
mean. Colonel Studebaker's regiment has
had by far the severest experience of any
of the Indiana regiments. It has been In
Florida since early In June, under extremely
trying conditions. When It arrived
here yesterday Its loss by death had
been fourteen men?a fraction over one i
to 8m company. It had twenty-four men '
t?o 111 as 10 ue seni 10 me cuy iionpnai. n
and ninety-three men on the rick list, all I
of whom went to ramp, not belli* !?erl- t
ouidy 111. Thin means that less than 10 s
per cent of the men in the regiment were d
unfit for ordinary camp duty. t
The men who marched through the
street* with the careless steadiness of veterans
were browned by exposure, but
there was no Indication of general feebleness
In their movement. The much por- t
trayed *kull and crow-hones of the sen- r
national newspapers could not l>e seen r
hovering about the rolumn as It marched u
Considering the exposure In a troplral oil- t
mate, the wonder it that so few men are o
on the temporary slrk list. Indeed, such r
a Journey as the regiment has had would 1
unfit many men for marchlnc while car- f
rylng i he qulpment of a soldier. ft may a
l.c arii.ed that If 1.300 men had !>een put
In rump# end had been at work In the *
run th?* past month In Indiana, ten In t
every hundred would now be unfit for t
labor. t
The truth in. and sensible people must *i
begin to reallso it. a great deal of phe- J
nomeiiul lying has been done regarding
the condition of the troops. There have
Iteen crowded camp*, some Incapacity and .
Ignorance, causing privation and Ulnefts. ,
but when comparison Is* made with other 1
warn It will be found that as a whole the r
lost* of life by disease has been light. The ?
