SIMPLY AWFUL
Isthc Situation of the Army
at Santiago
The Immediate Withdrawal of All
the Troops Imperatively Nee-
essary Say the Generals
Washington Aug 5 Special
The following statement of the
condition of affairs at Santiago has
been received in a report from the
various commanding- officers made
to Gen Shafter It was written by
Col Roosevelt and endorsed by
Gens Kent Bates Chaffee Sum
ner Ames and Wood
JMaj Gen Shafter Sir In a
meeting of the general and medical
officers called by you at the palace
this morning we were all as you
know unanimous in view of what
should be done with the army To
keep us here in the opinion of every
officer commanding a division or a
brigade will simply involve the
destruction of thousands There
is no possible reason for not shipping-
practically the entire com
mand North at once Yellow fever
cases are very few in the cavalry
division where I command one of the
two brig ades and not one true case
of yellow fever has occurred in this
division except among- the men
sent to the hospital at Siboney
where they have I believe con
tracted it But in this division
there have been 1500 cases of ma-
larirl fever Not a man has died
from it but the whole command is
so weakened and shattered as to be
ripe for dying- like rotten sheep
when a real epidemic like the pres
ent strikes us as it is bound if we
stay here at the height of the sick
ness season August and the begin
ning of September
Quarantine against malarial fe
ver is much like quarantining
atrainst the toothache All of us
are certain as soon as the author
ities at Washington fully appre
ciate the conditions of the army to
be sent home If we are kept here
it will in all human possibility mean
an appalling- disaster for the Sur
geons here estimate that over half
the army if kept here during the
sickly season will uie Tins is
not only terrible from the stand
point of individual lives lost but it
means ruin from the standpoint of
the military efficiency of the flower
of the American army for the great
bulk of the regulars are here with
you
The sick list large though it is
exceeding 4000 affords but a faint
index of the debilitation of the
army you command Not 10
per cent are fit -for active work
Six weeks on the north Maine coast
for instance or elsewhere where
the yellow fever germ can -not pos
sibly propagate would make us all
as fit as fighting cocks able as we
arc eager to take a leading1 part in
this great campaign against Ha
vana in the fall even if we are not
allowed to try Porto Rico
This army must be moved at
once or perish As the army can
safely be moved now the persons
responsible for preventing such a
move will be responsible for the un
necessary loss of many thousands
of lives
Our opinions are the result of
careful personal observation and
they arc also based on the unani
mous opinion of our medical officers
with the army who understand the
situation absolutely
The report created a profound
impression and the dispatch of the
sick soldiers home will begin at
once
A Whole Carload
