THE FENCIBLES
They lteturaed from the Atlanta
Drill Last Night
They Got Third Place in the Interstate
Drill and Should Properly Hare

Cnpt rorrt Gives an Fxhnnstlvo Fxplanatlon
o the Circumstances Connected with
tbe Contest
The Fencibles returned Inst night
They arrived In Fort Worth at 3
oclock
Well bow dill they do in Atlanta
They carried off the third prize in the
Interstate drill and should have got
first The story is best told as Captain Ford
related it to a U ktte ojhu last night
after ho had refreshed himself with a
supper and un artesian water bath
He left Tort Worth on the morning
of Thursday October 1C as you know
We ban a boudoir car to ourselves and
the Colt > a Helt provided everything es
sential to our comfort We were in
rhnrge of Traveling 1aseenger Acent It
II Curler and I want to say that he left
nothmu undone that would make our
trip enjoyable und pleasant The boys
of the oinpnny vote him a tiptop chap
eroue and we all ocknowlego ourselves
under a debt of a gratitude to hlra
We passed through Memphis and
go to Nashville in time to see the big
penitentiary fire which though not got
up for our special benefit interested us
very much while it Insted
We reached Chattanooga on tho
morning of Saturday Oct 18 and spent
the day visiting Missionary Itidie Look
out mountain und other points of interest
In and near the city
It m in such cases as that that our
chaperono Mr Curtar came to the
front nobly
We were royally entertained by tho
citizens of Chattanooga and everthlng
pottdblo was done to iimko our stay la
that place pleasant
At 630 Sunday morning wo arrived
nt Atlanta Tho city wag pretty well
crowded wtb visitors to the exposition
but wa proceeded direct to the camp
grounds and at once p tched our tents
in the grounds of the exposition
There were eight other companies on
the grounds
Tiio interstate drill was to have oc
currid at 10 oilock on Wednesday morn
ing October 22 and according to the
written requiremeits of those in com
mand of the drill each compauy was to
have reported on the grouuds ready for
drill nt its alloted time rain or shine
dressed In full drees uniform
In the drawing for place the Fonci
Slee drew llrst place
When 10 oclock Wednesday morn
ing came It was raining in torrents but
that was the hour allotted the Feuolbles
nud they were on hand ready for drill
Hut they received written orders to re
port oznin nt 1 oclock
At 1 oclock we presented ourselves
ngnin and demanded that we be drilled
but again received orders for postpone
ment
Eleven oclock Thursday was tho
next hour set und nt that time we pre
sented our elves again and again de
manded to be drilled but were again re
fused as it was still raining
On Triday morning tbe rain had
subsided somewhat but there was still a
drizzle Tho grounds were one sheet of
water and mud but the Fencibles were
put through their drill
It wus as mlsernblo a field as any
compauy ever had tho misfortune to
mnrtb upou
i went to tho officers in command
and requested that the drill bo postponed
till noon In order that the mud and water
might pass an ay somewhat but this nas
relused and wo wore ordered to pro
ceed
We did so
At 930 the drill betan
The mud was so deep and tho ground
n slippery 1 wns almost Impossible for
the boys to march
But wo made a splendid showing
Wo pasted through nn almost perfeot
Inspection received a perfect score on
tho manual and put up a creditable drill
Id the Held movements
1 The score allowed us was 7 out of
a possible 100
The judges were Lieutenants Lnwton
of the Thirteenth Infantry and SloDon
ald of tho Fourth Artillery and Capt
Lyman Hall of the Grady cadets nt one
time captain of one of the competing
teams in tho Interstate contest
Ihe Gnte City Guards of Atlanta got
tho first prize with a score of eightyfive
The McCarthy Light Guards of Little
Hock oime In second
We drilled in the morning In the
rain The other companies came out
nfter noon when tho drizzle had ceased
and tho crounds had cleared off to our
ovident disadvantage Had we been al
lowed to drill on Wednesday morning as
nt first ordered each compnny would
have labored under the same disad
vantages but os it was we were for two
days housed up in our tents without op
portunity to drill whtle the other com
panies practiced continually iu th lr
larg > armory tbe courtesies of which
they neglected to tender us
When Friday morning nrrlred and
wo were ordered to proceed with our
drill I requested that it be postponed
until noon In order tlrat tho ground
might dry off but this was refused We
drilled In tho rain and mud Tho other
compahies drilled on comparatively dry
ground and without moisture in the air
Now I want to tell you how we lost
You observe we are only 7 > 2 poluta
behind tbe winner Twelve and a half
individual errors wero charged against
the company and ten points were de
ducted from tbe score on account of two
errors charged against the captain as
each error of the captain counts fire
points
pointsOne
One of the errors charged against
me occurred this way When tbe com
pany was turned over to the judges Jo
Inspection the command Inspection
arm was not given by me That was tbe
ohargn but the command in fact was
given as can bo proved by the affidavit
of every member of the company be
side that no army officer inspecting a
company would proceed to inspect unless
the cantaln had given such command ns
otherwise the company would not be
ready for inspection until after such
> command was given
The other error charged was tbat the
boxes were not open for inspection
I stated to tbe judges at the
time tb t they should not charge
that error against me as it was
the universal custom to direct tho com
pany commander to open boxes whoa
such inspection was desired and such
wa the instruction given to the officers
ot the Fencibles at the late San Antonio
iowiirrcs
Strayti or Stolen
From my premises Saturda
encampment when one of the inspector
generals of small arms of tbe United
States was present and gave the instruc
tions The judges at Atlanta directed
the commanders of the other companies
to open boxes
So it was wrong to charge such errors
against tbe company
If we had not been charged these
wrongful errors we would have been ten
points better off and would taken first
prize
The Fenolbles did not enter n com
petitive squad
Hut In the Individual drill ho put In
four men out of tbe twenty competing
Our men were J A Flaherty A L
Abercrombie L Rosenfield and D C
Ferguson
When the line had diminished to flvo
men three of them were Fenclblea onu
a Gate City Guard and the other a
Snwanee cadet The latter secured the
prizeWe
We should have won that prize too
When the command secure arms
was given the guard and cadet placed
their thumbs under their gunslings the
Fencibles placed their thumbs on tbe top
or tbe slings The judges didnt drop
out the cadet and guard for this although
I poinfd out that they had mude a
manifest error as you will see here
and Capt Ford showed tbe reporter a
copy of a revision of Uptons Tactics
published by the secretary of war which
contains tbe following paragraph
As the gun sling Is not mentioned in
tbe manual of arms it is fair to lufer
that it Is supposed to be not in use be
ing used the thumb should be on the
Gtrap not under
So you bee bow we were fixed ot At
lanta went on Capt Ford
Hut we had a splendid time
socially ho continued Tbe boys
were so taken up with Atlanta they dil
uot want to come away The reception
given by Miss Howell the sponsor
of the company was splendid oue of
tbe Quest things I ever saw and tbe
boys appreciated the favor
What Capt Ford says about the recep
tion is borne out by the account given iu
the Atlanta Constitution of October 22
which says
A more elegant and delightful enter
tainment was never given in Atlanta
thau that which gathered together a
large number of guests at the handsome
house of Capt E V Howell lust even
ing The occasion was a reception ten
dered by Miss Effle Howell to tbe Fort
Worth Fencibles of which company she
is the sponsor Half the guests present
were visiting military and tho other half
were of the young unmarried portion of
society
No home in Atlanta Is more suitablo
for elaborate entertaining than Capt
Howells and on this occasion the bau
tlful grounds and hundsome mansion
appeared to the greatest advantage A
brilliant star hung in tbe center of the
archway of the long front verandah
showered a stream of light down the
long avenue The verandah was inclosed
and the walls hung with smilax From
the celings swung many rich colored
lamps and Japanese iauterns and banks
of glowing llowers and tropical plants
added grace nud richness to the scene
In the brown room with its effective
carved oherry wood work Miss Howell
and liar muids of honor Miss Maude
Darker Miss Cornelia Jackson and Miss
Aileleue Adulr received their guests
The mantel wns gracefully bung with
delicate garlands of smilax The
grand piano was covered wih a
bed ot brilliant flowers An alcove
in one corner where the punch was
served had an arch twined with crape
vines rich lu their treasures of purple
fruit The ceiling was adorned with
alternatiug band of white nnd blue rib
bon radiating from tbe center chande
liers In all the apartments there wus
some dainty white and blue decorution
these being the colors of tbe company
The druwingroom was udorned with
smilax and palms and the elegant din
ingroom was most artistically und ap
propriately decorated The table had
for Its center adornment stacked arms
formed of blue and while flowers while
beautifully iced cakes silver and cut
glass bowls of fruits and flowers formed
tbe other decorations Small teteatete
tables were placed here and there each
containing bowls of fruits and llowers in
the center
The archway of the bow window was
hung with a spiders web of blue nnd
white silk and the bullets and mantel
wero adorned with llowers All this
lower floor and the porches were used
for refreshments aud for those who pre
ferred promeuading to dauo ng On the
third floor was the ballroom the length
and breadth of the whole ma sion This
room was decorated with Uags and bunt

most prominent

The Last Dajs of Pompeii Drew An
other Big Crowd
The Exhibition neMled all rrevlom Efforts
In Fome Fartlcniars A Ftartllnc Erup
tion Ibe Fyrotechnlcal Display
The Last Days of Pompeii dr w another large
crowd last night and the bencnes were almost
as completely filled as on last Saturday night
when there was the largest attendance of the
season so far
It was another chilly evening bnt the visitors
did not mind the condition of the weather
In many respects the exhibition excelled any
previous effort at Fort Worth In fact the man
agers of thedispay appear to possess the facility
of presenting sopietfung novel each evening
and making uccessive exhibitions appear su
perior I those which preceded them
The music w j good Professor Ault is the
leader of the oand which previous to the begin
ning of the display renders a fine concert each
evening and during tne exhibition renders ap
propriate maiic In good style
There were new features in the way of special
ties latt night A halldozen ladder performers
lent their talents to the interest of the occasion
and right well did they succeed The
acts put in as part of the Itoman
sports witnessed by the Pnmpclian populace
as part of the r festival ceremonies are superior
in eveay respect and are seldom equaled in
parts as exhibitions of athletic skill JJJ
listic events last nieht were good a rrje
rope act and the bicycling Z >
A most pleasing feature of the entertainment
Is a beautiful and well performed wait
by a bevy of some twenty
more flower girls dressed in pretty
rich costumes and i iven the best aid in the v
of appearance by flcilld application of col <
lights As they flit over tbe immense a
in the rendition of an elaborate and iutrjaAee
dance to the strains of charming Nanon ijftz
the scene is one long to be remembered
The eruption ot Vesuvius vhich abruptly
terminated tbe silendid performance last
night was an awful affair It cam with
terrible suddenness There was an ear
snllttlng explosion at tho peak of
Vesuvius then exp osions in all parts of the
citr 1 he temple ot Isis shook as though by an
earthquake an 1 amid the outpouiing lava und
exploding bombs the rich and gorgeous cily is
destroyed
Tonght will be an occasion of special Interest
at Pompeii There will be still morespecialty
features and a representation In fireworks of the
prettiest lady in rort Worth will be g v n
