What the Seventh Has Had to
Contend With
The Tennessee Regiment a Shuttlecock for Two Rival Street
Car Companies—No Valid Reason for Selection
or Maintenance of the Site
While the official announcement has been
made tfhat the Seventh California regiment
la at last to sail for Manila on the trans
port Arizona, either Monday or Tuesday of
next week, the conditions that they have
had to contend with for nearly three
months will still be of grave Interest to
many Southern Collfornlans. The Seventh
will leave many comrades behind in the
hospital and not a few who have met a
soldier's death, but not in the glory of the
battlefield, but by the criminal mistakes of
the authorities.
The unnecessary hardships, says the San
Francisco Call, through which the men
have passed, tho long list of deaths from
pneumonia and other diseases clue to ex
posure, which could have been avoided by
the pursuit of the proper policy, are what
offends and exasperates the relatives and
friends of the men.
It Is the general opinion among those who
have visited l the sev.eral camps known as
Camp Merrltt that it would have been diffi
cult for those in power to select a more des
olate, inhospitable and unsanitary location
than the one to which the enthusiastic vol
unteer troops were assigned.
The shifting, driving sands, the cold,
taw, fog-laden winds and lack of sewerage,
together with the fact that none of the out
elde regiments were accustomed to the pe
culiar summer climate of San Francisco,
account for the many deaths and disabil
ities among the sturdy men who came here
on their way to the front.
Those who are left to fight the adverse
conditions are strong ln the belief, along
with the public, that peculiar "street car"
reasons and not military requirements were
responsible for the strange move. Speak
ing of this proposition one of the subordi
nate officers of the Tennessee, regiment
eald yesterday:
"We feel that we are getting more than
our share of street car Imposition. At
home, while wo were ln camp awaiting or
ders, we were used as a shuttlecock be
tween two rival street car companies who
owned parks ln different parts of the city.
Our regiment was the attraction and we
were moved back and forth from park to
park several times during the month we
Were In camp. It was acase of who bid the
highest between the two common carriers.
We naturally hoped that such Influences

a large military reservation, but It looks
as though the volunteers were not regard

were bound to recognize. Soldiers are not

expected to complain, but to endure hard
ships without murmur when they are un
avoidable; but when one sees his former
healthy, strong comrades go down to sick
ness and death like so many sheep, and
knows there Is no valid excuse for these
conditions, lie can't help expressing him
All of which there is no one to deny, be
cause there were no valid reasons to give
for herding the men ln Camp Merrltt sand
pits ln stormy weather, to sleep on damp
straw beds when there were good, well
drained grounds In Uncle Sam's reserva
The result of this action of the authori
ties was many deaths and a great deal of
sickness which should not have existed.
The camp hospitals were overcrowded, and
It was through the generosity of the French
hospital that relief from overcrowding was
obtained, that institution taking ln the un
fortunate men to the full capacity of he
free wards.
All this time the trained and well-sea
soned regulars at the Presidio were occu
pying warm and comfortable quarters and
there was no Indication of a efeslre to guard
the raw volunteers from the unaccustomed
hardships and dangers.
In this connection it will be observed that
it Is only within the past week, when fhe
comfortable Presidio barracks were nearly
abandoned by tho regulars, that the pro
tests of relatives and friends of the volun
teer soldiers, backed by the criticisms of
the people of San Francisco, wpro heeded,
and arrangements made to give them
proper grounds and hospital service.
At the present time one of the fine brick
two-company barracks anid a part of an
other have been set aside anel equipped as
hospitals, where the sick can have proper
care and protection from The elements.
Ther* are twelve wards In which over 210
men are cared for. There Is plenty of light,
heat and ventilation, clean and comforta
ble beds and the attention of trained
nurses. Also facilities for disinfecting
clothing and bedding.
Tho comment of the public Is that these
common sense protections should have bee n
given the men ions ago, even if it were at
the expense of two or three hundlred; tough
ened regular campaigners, who could have
taken a season of life in tents without suf
fering ill results. In other words, that there
was not the proper sympathy among the
regulars for the volunteers and that it was
only through the pressure of public opinion
that the present order opening the hospital
and transferring the troops to the Pre
sidio were promulgated. I
The condition of the Tennessee troops at
rale time, except that the weather Is better,
shows what hasbeen endured, and the com
fort of the lucky boys at the division hos
pital at tho Presidio are a striking and) sad
Illustration of what might have been had
their rights received proper consideration.
Not only the location but the condition
of the regimental hospital of the Tennes
see regiment Is disgraceful and Inexcusa
ble. It Is pitched ln the cold, damp sand,
exposed to the chilling, freezing blasts from
the ocean, and reminds tbe visitor of the
accommodations of a Chinese lodging,
house more than anything else. Despite
the stiff winds and that the tent flap Is left
open, the odor within Is decidedly offensive.
The sick men, weighted down with several
blankets, were miserable enough with
their ills, but added to these was the pres
ence of myriads of files which constituted
an almost unbearable nuisance, andagalnst
the attacks of which no protection was
As an Instance of the Justice of keeping
men In such a place, open to the weather.
It may be stated that for several dayspast
the well men have found It necessary to
hover around the camp fires to guard
against tho chilly weather to WhicJh| they
are unaccustomed.
The only satisfactory fenture of the sit
uation Is that it Is understood! that Camp
Merritt will soon be a thing of the past.
An answer to the deprecatory remarks
that have been made regarding the effi-
H SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2.—(Special to The Herald). The
H following soldiers of the Seventh California have died since
\w going into camp in San Francisco, so far as the official records
H show:

olency of the work done hy the Red' Cross
society can be found in the society hospital
in the camp of the Seventh California regi

tions of the poor Tennessee boys, the in
stitution contains every possible comfort,
the equipment being similar to that of the
Children's hospital—clean, white, fresh
bedding, good cots, proper ventilation and
the temperature maintained at the right
degree by an oil heater. The occupants
were loud in their praise of their treat-,
