Secretary of War Interviewed Hut -v Sayti Tliis \Vn» According- to His Ovrn l'lim—Few Soldiers Now Oc cupy tlie Camp at Cliickniaianffa Park—More Volunteers Die* New York, Sept. 12.—A dispatch to the' press from Camp Wikoll says: Under peremptory orders from Gen. Miles preparations are being made to break up this camp at once by send ing' home all the soldiers here. This is entirely contrary to what has been the understanding of the officers in -. command. Gen. Shafter said last week that 6,000 or 7,00Cf*men would be kept here, at least ttntil October, and this was supposed to have been the order of Secretary Alger. An officer said Monday that when Gen. Miles' order came a telegram was sent him saying that his order was contrary to that of Secretary Alger, and Miles replied: "Xever mind what Alger says I am in command now," That of course settled it so far as the officers here are concerned, and unless Gen. Miles' orders are countermanded next week will see the practical end of Camp Wiltoff. Gen. Bates said: "My orders are to send the troops away as fast as trans portation can be arranged." When asked if these orders did not conflict with those of Secretary Alger, he simply said: "They are new or ders." 4 In pursuance of this plan the deten tion hospital is being abandoned. All the men in this Hospital fit to travel are being sent to New York on the Shinnecock, and tlie others are being taken to the general hospital. The general hospital is being cleared out as fast as possible, but there are two or three hundred cases that cannot "be moved without danger. ... Strong frame buildings are now be ing erected for the use of these pa-j tients. These buildings will be fin-* Islied in two 'or- three days, and the worst cases will be moved into them. Nearly all of these are typhoid fever cases, to move which would cause a frightful mortality. Maj. Brjown said that he thought there would be about '•50 cases which could not be moved for two or three weeks at least. Alff^r Wot "Worried About It. Detroit, Sept. 12.—Concerning re —ports from Camp Wikoif that the camp is preparing to break up under the peremptory new orders from Gen. t(3Iiles, Secretary Alger said: "There is nothing new in that.
