WASHINGTON, Oct. 10.?Captain J.
H. Culver, of Troop A, of the Third I).
8. volunteer cavalry (Qrtgsby's Rough
Riders) before the war Investigating
commission to-day. He had been
elatlonod at Camp Thomas, Chlckamaupa
from May until he was mustered out
on the llth of September. Hla company
had been located in the woods, but while
tbe toll was dry he thought they would
have been better off In the open. The
find generally was abundant and good.
At first they only reoelved fresh meat
tKO or three times a week and for a
hr?n*l nrna fiorH hut this Wfln
rcon rectified. On one occasion the
meat was tainted, but It waa condemned
and exchanged. He stated, however,
that the tainted meat waa not badly
spoiled and that he would have been
glad enough to have had the use of it In
the civil war. Captain Culver mentioned
an instance win- the bacon received
wae wormy, an ijrhen the commands
arrived there waa a shortage of tentage
but these defects had been speedily
remedied.
Captain Howell interrupted the proceedings
to Inquire ttn object of the examination
of the witness, to which exGovernor
Beaver, who was conducting
the examination, replied that it was to
show what the different bureaus of the
war department had done and bow they
did It, and he thought the inquiry very
pertinent.

proper rwn from whom to secure this
Information are the officers wtio suppiled
the equipment."
General Dodge staged that there had
been some complaints as to delay In
supplying the regiment with Its equipments.
This explanation satisfied Captain
Howell and the Investigation proceeded.
I
Captain Culver stated that at one time
twenty-two of his men .were sick. He
thought the proportion not excessive?
ao greater than during the first days of
the civil war, and until the men learned
to depend upon the army ration and not
to go outside for food. He thought the
pies sod to the men were unwholesome
tnd also said that much stale fried
chicken was sold to them.
In conclusion Captain Culver said he
had had no complaint to make qf treatment
except In the location of his troops
In the woods. He had protested against
tbli location.
Dr. IfyMll'* Testimony.
Captain Culver was followed by Dr.
James H. Hysell, who was chief surgeon
of the Third division of the first army
corps and who was located at Camp
Thomas, Chickamauga from the 7th of
June to the 21st of August. He had
been a surgeon fn the civil war, and
since then said he had been In general
practice, ah me eany cases 01 lypnoia
were treated In the regimental hospitals
and the patients were not Isolated.
Until after the construction of the division
hospital when typhoid was suspicious
the cases were Isolated and the
men were attended by physicians and
nurses, though at times one nurse would
have charge of thirty men. The sinks
were kept covered with earth hut Dr.
Hysell eald that no special precaution
was taken to disinfect vessels going to
and from the sinks. Thera had been
1.100 cages of all kinds of disease treated
?u tue nospuai ana nneen aeams.
Dr. Hysell thought typhoid fever had
been Imported Into the camp from the
outside and that the 1ncrea?e baa been
due to the failure to properly cover the
Inks and to the prevalence of fllea. He
did not think It possible to effectually
isolate typhoid fever cases, as typhoid
wis so difficult to detect in Its early
stages. All reasonable precaution* had
been taken In locating the camp to prevent
the development of disease. He
admitted that in case of another war by
the experience of the pant more effective
mean* could be provided.
The examination of Dr. Hysell was
conducted by Dr. Conner, of the commission,
anil was very searching frcrm a
medical standpoint.
(ommtiMrlMUt Hmtllago.
At the afternoon session the commission
examined Major Hugh J. GallftKher.
He had served ns depot comrpls
nary at Slboney, San Juan and Santiago
and recently occupied this position at
M?.n:auk Point. At Slboney the ration*
he raid were forwarded almost a? rapidly
?? landed. Only very small quantities
could be accumulated, yK the coramlimary
during the stay at Slboney hod
been able to meet all requisitions mode
of rations by the troops and no one was
*ver refused. He heard no complaint of
lark of rations at the front. At first
they were able to forward alwut 30,000
rations per day. From Slboney the depot
was moved to Kl Pos<?, seven miles
inland. At this point there never were
enough rations on hand for even a day
I ohead and It wan Impossible to fill nil the
^requisitions. There was a ahortatfo in
coffee and sugar which oontlnued far
two or three days because of the high
urf at Slboney. All the ratloni were
good, tut In some cases the hard bread
ivould be injured by sudden showers.
When this happened the bread was
thrown aalde and not Issued. Some potatoes,
onions, tomatoes and canned beef
had been thrown away at Santiago, being
spoiled.
Major Gallagher said there was a
shortage of lighters, but he was not able
to say why this was true.
Colonel Denby pressed for Information
as to the shortage of coffee and
sugar and Major Gallagher stated that
there were probably two days when the
men were without these articles. A
storm was the Immediate cause of thla
deficiency, but 11 there had been a sufficiency
of lightens this deficiency would
not have occurred. The major said
there was not to hi* knowledge a shortage
In any other article of food during
the campaign. Mr. Denby told him
there was complaint of a deficiency covering
a month's time, but Mr. Gallagher
aid he knew nothing of It
"Suppose," asked Gen. McCook, "this
shortage of rations had lasted for seven
days Instead of two, what would have
been the result?"
Woald Hare Had to he* Buck.
"We would probably have had to face
back," replied Major Gallagher. "Men
cannot fight on short rations."
Major Gallagher said that of the five
civilian assistants he had had two who
were Inefficient and Indifferent to their
duties. They were Captain Lord, of
New York, and Captain Ryan, of Kansas.
Mr. Gallagher sold the commissary
supply at Montauk was abundant and
rood while he was at that point
General Beaver to-day received a letter
from Mr*. Hugo Lange, of Brooklyn,
who participated In the relief work at
Montauk Point, relating to her Interview
with President McKlnley when he
visited Camp Wlkoff. She wm reported
to have said to the President that some
of the men were "carried out In a dying
condition In order to get rid of them."
This she says she did not say, but she
asked If In passing -through the wards
the President did nut notice the number
ot empty cots. He replied that he had
noticed them, and she then requested
him to ask why the men were without
care 1n the detention and in some of the
regimental hospitals. The letter continues:
"I will also ask you to go back ot the
conditions at the time General Wheeler
arrived and Investigate why no preparation
was made to receive and care for
*ur sick and suffering soldiers. I never
saw more devoted or self-secriflcing
work tinder the most trying conditions
or with greater patience and perseverance
than was always exhibited by the
executive officers of Camp Wikoff, particularly
Major Helzeman, Major
Browne and Major Thomasson. The
sanitary c*mdltion at the general hospital
was appalling, until the general
police work was taken up by Lieutenant
IKirfee, of the second engineers."
tirenitrf Algar'i Answer.
NEW YORK, Oct. lO.-^A dispatch to
the Herald from Washington saya Secretary
Alger has sent an answer to the
war Investigation commission, which, in
the words of one of the commissioners,
"does not answer."
"In the first place," said tho commissioner,
"we asked who had been Influential
In selecting the camp sites.
The only answer vouchsafed is that
General Lee selected the camp at Jacksonville.
I do not think any other camp
is mentioned. But this omission will
no doubt be remedied in the supplemental
report for which we will call
on Secretary Alger."
Secretary Alger'n report Includes
about 3.000 words, and In addition to
tne jacKHonvuie camp umuci, wiua
only theso points:
The selection of Tampa as .1 point of
embarkation; Rear Admiral Sampson's
dispatch the cause of hastening troops
to Santiago: Commodore Remy's dispatch
the cause of the subsequent delay
of the troops. Discussion of these
topics exhausts the report.
No attempt seems to have been made
to explain the causes of the hardships
suffered by the soldiers In Tampa.
Secretary Alger will be asked for a
fuller answer.
PEACE COMMISSIONER!
DUc*Mlng Qmitloui Ite!nting to Eraeii<
tlou of Cuba.
PARIS. Oct 10.?The United States
peace commission held two sessions today.
They were devoted to acquiring
and weighing Information relative to
all the questions Involved In the mattnr?
under the immediate consideration
of the commlMloneni.
It in believed that the question* now
being discussed relate to Cuba and the
adjustment of the debt of that Island.
The Paris newspapers show evidence
of anxiety In behalf of the Spanish
cause.
As the Joint commissions have not
yet considered the Philippine question,
the Paris newspapers appear to Americans
as making the statement that the
Philippines are under consideration In
order to be In a position, to adjure the
American commission to treat Spain
generously.

tOitlJ OUtl kVU, BHU W" ~iqu> - ?a
60,000 pilgrims are reveling Id each
other's hospitality.
Except a few stragglers every commandery,
which wa? expected to be represented,
has now a delegation on the
ground. The day was chiefly spent by
the different conmianderies la arranging
their headquarters and getting ready to
receive their guests and visitors. In
this respect the various delegations vied
with each other In the matter of putting
up the most Inviting refreshments,
ranging from the unpretentious glass of
Ice water up to Kentucky bourbon, California
wine and even champagne. Souvenirs
of all shapes, sizes and designs
are in abundant evidence and most of
the knights are bedecked with decorative?
not unlike a major general and
veteran of at least twenty years.
It Is a remarkable thing that the visitors
and guests in this city, though their
number is larger than the city has ever
before had to entertain there has not
yet been a complaint for lack of accommodation.
This Indeed speaks volumes
for the committees, who have been Inmoifin??
tnrrancements
for this part of -the event.
Although the business meetings of the
gathering have not yet commenced,
electioneering for the honor of balding
the next conclave is In active progress.
In this respect the Louisville people are
apparently In the lead. This afternoon
the members from the Minnesota commander!
e? virtually gave up the conteat,
they had expected to make in favor
of St. Paul. Northern New York delegations
are "plugging" for all they are
worth to have the next conclave held at
Niagara Ffclls In 1901. However, it is
yet difficult to tell what the outcome
will be, because a decision will not be
reached until Thursday morning.
The foremost event of to-day's programme
undoubtedly has been the reception
and ball of Tancred commandery
No. 48, of this city, at their head
quarters in the court house, which commenced
at 2 o'clock this afternoon and it
is expected the dancing and entertaining:
with unabated musical accompaniment
is Co continue until 12 o'clock tonight.
The eights on the streets have never
been equalled in this city as far as the
crowds are concerned. Street car traffic
is at a standstill and vehicles of all descriptions
are banished from down town
thoroughfares, while every Inch of
ground is monopolized by tens of thousands
of pedestrians who move along
like an immense wave of humanity.
There are those on the sidewalks, shouting
and applauding the parading knights
as they pasa in an apparently neverending1
column through the street*. An
interesting feature In the informal parade
of the knight? was furnished by the
Boston commanderles, who marched up
Fifth avenue, accompanied* by their
ladies, and the way In which the latter
kept step to the music evoked great enthusiasm
and "hurrahing."
Should the weather continue to shower
Its pleasant countenance upon the
Smoky City to-morrow, the "grand parode"
will be an event that has never
been surpassed in the history of Knights
Terrmlarism in America.
The many commanderles scheduled
to arrive to-night come with ?uch a
rush ana bo close together that It was
almost impossible <o keep track of
them. It can be stated, however, that
all who were expected up to midnight
have arrlvod. The question os to
whether or not General Joe Wheeler
will be present to command the mounted
division of the parade to-morrow will
not be decided until the time arrives.
Some claim that he will be here and
others say he has sone through to
Omaha. ________

, and letters from sympathizing friends
in all parts of the world.
Messages were also received from the
United States embassy In London, from
the German minister and in fact from
nearly all the American diplomats and
representatives abroad. The diplomatic

Vxerclse as well as about the house
people of all classes, workingmen and
business men and professional men
have everywhere given to the President
expressions of deepest sympathy and

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct lO.-The federal
and state authorities are now working
in harmony toward the quelling of the
Indian revolt. General Bacon, offered
to come down from Walker this evening
to confer with Governor Clough, but the
latter advised conference by wire.
He received the following message
from General Bacon: "Situation bad;
conference yesterday resulted in nothing.
None of the Indian chiefs were
there. The lumber men are all coming
In to Walker. Troops needed at Cass
Lake."
Nevertheless the governor believer
that the situation is well In hand and
that the recalcitrants are practically
surrounded by soldiers.
From Pfcrk river the governor has received
a personal statement signed toy
Chief Ned-Gay-Bug-Enanoway-Ruah:
"Pine Point, Oct. 9: We, the Chippewa
Indians at Pine Point beg to state to the
public that we are perfectly friendly to
the white* and have no 111 feeling or are
in any way hostile. We have decided at
the council not to take any part whatever
1n the Leech Lake trouble."
A company of flfty-flve volunteers has
been offered to the governor from Litchfield.
A special to the Journal from Cass
Lake says that armed bucks are undoubtedly
proceeding south. Calls received
from Bemidjl for troops but none
were sent, as this was considered the
more crucial point There Is considerable
apprehension and an undoubted
necessity for troops to allay panlo in the
small towns along this line.

following the resolution on the
czar's peace conference. The resolution
to cjoee the doors when the divorce
question came up led to a spirited debate.
Several deputies criticised the ;
move toward secresy. The question of
closing tne floors nnaiiy went over un- .
til the divorce subject was considered.
Among the resolutions presented and ,
referred was one expressing thanks tor

This cleared the way for the mala
discussion of the day on tfhe amendment
of the constitution. This related mainly
to the Internal organisation of the
church, and to the amendment of article
four for the establishment of standing
committees In each diocese. . f
The deputies agreed to a resolution
of the bishops repealing the canon establishing
the prayer book distribution
society, this work now being attended
to by the diocesan associations.

CATHOLIC ABCHBISHOPS
To Me?t In WMhlngton to Consldar Hat*
can of I'hurota InUmta.
WASHINGTON, Oct 10,-The Catho- ,
lie archbishops of the United States and
a number of the prominent clergy are
assembling In the city to attend the
annual meeting of the board of trustees
of the Catholic University and of the
archbishops this week. That of the
trustees of the University, of which Cardinal
Gibbons Is president, will com- J
mence to-morrow. There are no questions
to come up likely to lead to long
discussion. t
Following the disposition of the work
of the trustees will be the meeting of ?
the archbishops. There are thirteen of
these dignitaries in the church In the
United States at this time, the arohblshopric
of Santa Fe being vacant, and
nearly ell are expected to be present
Cardinal Gibbons, who will preside over
the archbishops, said to-day that he
did not know what questions the archbishops
would present for consideration,
and therefore he was not able to tndl- !
cate the scope of the work to be undertaken.
It is believed to be likely that incidentally
the expansion of the work of
the Catholic church after the Spanish
evacuation of Cuba and Porto Rico and
the acquisition by the United States of
territory in the Philippines may come
up for desultory, discussion, but the
opinion prevails that these matters are
yet too Immature for the outlining of
my formative policy Dy tne governing
body of the church In America.
