THE DAY AT CAMP PRATT
Physical Examinations Begun by the Surgeons DRESS PARADE DRAWS SPECTATORS Soldiers of the Seventh Not Unanimous on the Purpose to Which the Proceeds of the Exhibition Drill Shall Be Applied Camp Pratt has settled down to regular military routine. From the iirst call at 6:15 a. m. to tapa ul 11 p. m. there is something to keej) the soldier boya busy most of tbe time. The part of the park occupied by the camp has been raked and swe]* as clean as the conditions of mellow earth aud mud from ovcrsprinkling in some places and too little in others will allow. Taken as a whole, the discomforts are few nnd tho ndvnntages many. The big pepper trees that line the driveways nnd walks afford shady places to lounge under. The water supply is abund ant, and the grand stand does duty in a variety of ways, both for spectators and the men who will call the camp home for the next fortnight. During the early morning the enmp is closed, even to the unlucky bhtocoat who is out without a pass, and, though stem-faced sentries pace up nnd down before the gates and through the grounds, visitors come and go unchallenged through the afternoon. "Indignant friends" are too previous in rushing into print with their protests about "our gallant boys of the Seventh being on exhibition like wild animals, at 25 cents' admission." There is no admission fee charged on any day except Sunday, and then it is for the privilege of looking nt two or three big hounds chasing after one little mite of a scared rabbit and shaking the life out of it, that people pay for, not our gallant boys. It is just a little bit of affectation in the b6ys, after nil, w«acn they pretend to being annoyed by sight-seers. There is no denying that the Spanish-War style of military uni form is natty and becoming, and it is a poor slouch of a boy who is not dignified aud glori fied by the army blue. The constant drilling of Ihe past few months has taught them how to carry themselves, how to walk erect and stejy firmly and soldierly, and while undis guised admiration may be embarrassing to the over-shy individual, a grand stand full of pretty girls, waving handkerchiefs, cheers and applause nt every graceful evolution give eclat to the tedium of Company drill ami could not at all be dispensed with at dress parade. Besides, this is tbe last chance for brown leggins and "Teddy" hats to be effective, and also for drills nnd parades with genuine military adjuncts and mounted officers. It will all be play soldier after this. Physical examinations begnn yesterday morning and will probably continue through the next four days. Capt. Pratt and the surgeons were busy nil dny, and so far it. is estimated that there nre about 260 men who Will be eligible for pensions. The disabled young veterans do not take their disabilities very seriously. "A hundred dollars," called one to another ns he left the surgeon's tent; "one lung bad." The books of tlie? hospital steward, Ira F. 'Allen, showed after sick enll in the afternoon 60 eases reported, most of them minor ail ments, nnd 30 convalescents from file hospi tal at the Presidio. Privates Nichols of Company L, with bronchitis, nnd Ogburn of Compnny M, with fever, were taken to the Sisters' hospitnl on Sunday afternoon, and there is one man in the regimental hos pital in the camp. There arc numbers of sick and absent convalescing in homos and hospitals in the city, whose names do not appear on tho steward's book. There has been a change of sentiment, or, rather, the regiment as a whole is not unani mous in the object to which the proceeds of the proposed exhibition drill shall be applied. Some are in favor of the monu ment fund; others think the money should be given to the needy families of their de censed comrudes, as a. monument to the dead can come later from other sources. Yesterday morning each company was called together by it.s captain, and a vote was taken. Com pany E was Unanimous for the benefit fund; Company F, 0 for the monument, 72 for the benefit; Company Ct, 42 monument, 23 ben efit; Company I, 49 monument, 12 benefit; Companies X and M,. Unanimous for the monument, and L unanimous for the benefit: the remaining companies have not reported yet. A final decision will probably be renched today. Compnny X, by unanimous consent, presented $7f> of the company fund to a comrade who resides at Piru, who has been ill for the past four months. Chef Moisted hns been obliged to increase the cooking facilities of the regimental kitchen. A new six-foot range and five sma'ler ones were put up yesterday after noon. Each meal requires 195 gallons of coffee. Four beeves and nine or (en sheep, six to eight sacks of beans and one thousand loaves of bread nre consumed daily. Though the edibles are ill of the best quality, the kickers, who have established a reputation for the regime Tit, get in their work with military precision each meal. Some like grnvy on their bncon, others don't nnd that affords nn opportunity to kick long nnd loud. The hotel kitchen is used exclusively lor pre paring food for the sick, for which two cooks, one waiter and one dishwasher are employed. Beginning on Sunday noon, by order of Colonel Berry, tho several companies were detailed to alternate enrh dny nt. the first and second tables. Compnnirs B, <!, X, M and E went first and A, 1), E, H. 1 nnd L second. Instructions were also given in the order concerning the order of marching to the mcsß room, etc. The picturesque event of the day for vis itors to the camp is dress parade, with the officers mounted, the first call for which is sounded by the buglers nt 4p. in. The grand stand was filled with an admiring crowd and a line of spectators hung over the fence, among whom were many soldiers not on duty, to whom it can be no longer a novel sight. The alert unanimity with which the heads of uniformed men are bared when the band plays the "Star Spanglpd Hanner" and the colors are lowered, is an object lesson In patriotism to the indifferent civilian and the observant small boy. Before the regiment left the Presidio Colonel Berry appointed Lieutenant Colonel Schrciber and Majors Weller and Welsh a committee to confer with the one from the chamber of commere concerning the ar rangements for the exhibition drill. The joint committee held a meeting at the Hoi ienbeck yesterday afternoon. ,f. S. Slauson sms elected chairman, H. W. Frank secre tary nnd A. B. Cnss treasurer. The five mem bers from the chamber of commerce, Messrs. Slauson, Frank, Cass, Burnham nnd New berry, were chosen to act as a finance com mittee, while the military details will be ar • i ranged by the officers of the regiment. The date has not been definitely decided upon, many soldiers and citizens having expressed a preference for Thanksgiving dny, Instead of Saturday next, as first named. The gen eral admission was lixed at 25 cents and 50 cents for the grand stand. OFFAL ON VACANT LOTS Complaints to the Merchants and Manufacturers' Association A complaint was made at the meeting of thehoa rdo fdirectors of the Merchants and Manufacturers' association held last even ing, that many people in the business sec tion of the city are in the habit of dumping garbage and offul on vucant lots, thereby jeopardizing the health of the adjacent residents. The secretary was instructed to call the attention of the health officer to the matter und to request him to use his power to have the nuisance stopped and tbe guilty parties arrested. In view of the prev alence of diphtheria und typhoid fever it wns deemed necessary that immediate steps be taken to prevent the spread of disease through th unsanitary condition of certain parts of the residence portion. Several of the retail merchants presented a request that the Merchants and Manu facturers' association to take charge of all appeals for charity that are being made to the merchants and that the association be made the custodian of a special fund to be contributed for that purpose by the mer chants. The business men complain that they receive as many as twenty calls a day from people soliciting aid for charitable in stitutions und in order to save annoyance and much time they desire the association to act for them and to distribute funds in worthy cases. The president appointed the following committee to investigate the subject I M. Hamburger, James Montgom ery and Ni B. llluckstone. In order to bring the workings of the ussociation more thoroughly to the notice 0/ its members and to givo the latter un opportunity to suggest and discuss mat ters of importance to the commercial com munity as well asrpublic improvements the idea was suggested to issue a monthly bul letin containing articles contributed by merchants, a synopsis of the work done anil proposed by the association, together with a list of the members each month. A com mittee consisting of Directors' Marshutzand Herron and Secretary Zpehandeluur was ap pointed to prepare a plan for tbe publication of the bulletin, with instructions to report at a special meeting of the board of directors to be called for that purpose. The Alcatraz Asphalt Raving company was elected to membership.

Crowe of the Vander bllt lines of San Francisco is in town for a few days. The report that the Santa Fe intended to establish an ice plant nt San Bernardino proves to be without foundation other than the desire of G. E.

Hnile and' Albert Onsae-r, accused of the Ore Grande train robbery that resulted in the death of Engineer Clifford, and Jones, one of the highwaymen, will begin in the United States district court this morning at 10 o'clock. The "hold-up" occurred on the morning of April 20 last, while the north bound Santa Fe passenger train was ap proaching Oro Grnnde. The engineer and fireman were covered with rifles by masked robbers; the mail car was separated from the train, and run some distance up tbe track. Postal Clerk Lukens was ordered to throw out the mail, and then, with his assistant. H. M. Ashby, was ordered back into his car. The robbers placed Engineer Gilford be fore them as a shield in approaching the ex press car and the detached section of the train. In the dim light of the morning A. 0. Mott, the express messenger, supposing them all to be robbers, fired, killing the en gineer with the first shot, nnd wounding Jones with the second. The wounded high wayman was brought into the city, but died without making a confession, or disc'oeing any of the facts.

RHODES, AN ELECTRIC EMPLOYE, INJURED He Received a Shock of 2000 Volts While Working 25 Feet Above the Ground, and Fell Louis N. Rhodes is another victim to the Jeudly electric current. Yesterday after noon he and a companion were working un der Foreman A. U. lloff for the Edison Electric company, changing wires on the corner of Hellevue and Ueuudry avenues. Rhodes is a ground man and has been work ing in that cupacity for the company since lust February. Of late, however, he has been employed in helping the linemen by clearing away brush, digging post holes and setting poles for the putting in of new lines at the corner of Ueuudry und Bellevue av enues. He climbed the pole at the corner and hud reached the crosspiece about twenty five feet from the ground, but did not yet attach his safety Strap, lie had the light wire between the thirt/and] fourth fingers of hi* right hand and when in this position his left hand came in contact with a tele phone wire which completed the circuit, und Rhodes received the full current from the electric light wire. His companion attempted to catch him before he fell, but succeeded in getting bis fingers only an inch inside of his belt and with this hold could not restrain Rhodes' weight, who fell backward, making a com plete turn in the air, and struck on his face aud chest, knocking him insensible. The patrol wagon took him to the receiv ing hospital, where on examination it was found that he had a severe burn on his right hand, another on the inside of the left calf unit a deep cut on the chin, with a slight contusion on the left cheeky where he wtruok the ground. Besides these wounds, it was found that he had suffered internal inju ries, as his lungs were badly congested with blood. These internal injuries are verj - seri ous und may prove fatal, his condition be ing critical last night. Rhodes lives at 984 East Thirty-second street and has a wife nnd three children. A MOTORMAN INJURED Elliott Pollard Badly Crushed and Hurt Internally Yesterday afternoon about 2:30, Elliot Pollard, an extra motonnuu in the employ of the Los Angeles Railway company, had a narrow escape from death at the car barn on the corner of Seventh street and Grand avenue. Foreman Percy Warner was ranning a car onto the track which leads from the barn into the street when Pollard, who had taken his toolbox and had started to jump on the car, was caught between the car and a post near the track. Warner yelled l to him, but too late, and Pollard was twisted between the car and post in a space of only five inches. When the ear had passed and released him he fell to the ground uncon scious. Drs. Stewart and Cates were summoned, and it was found that Pollard had a crushed hip and was internally injured. The patrol wagon h.nl been summoned, but his friends preferred to remove him to his room at the Eureka, corner of Third street and Stephen son avenue. The exact extent of Pollard's injuries could not be positively determined last night, but it is thought his internal injuries arc likely to prove the most serious.
