Washington, D. C., Feb. 3. The fact" that the skeletons of a number of soldiers'if General Taylor's army, who died and were buried near Point Isabel near the beginning- of the Mex ican war in lS47r had'-never been re moved, and are now exposed ta the view by reason of the washing: away of the embankment under which, they were buried, has been called to the attention of President Rotfsevelt,, by- Gen. A. B. Nettleton, U S. A., rer tired, who is now at Brownsville. It Is learned that there were about 130 soldiers under Gen. Taylor who eith er died of disease while encamped at Point Isabel, or were- killed in battle or skirmish near there, their bodies having been interred under some breastworks which had been erected by the army. These bodies, it seems, were never removed, and' the report now received is to the effect that the bones have been exposed by the gradual washing away of the embankment, being exposed to- sun and rain, and that even vandal relic hunters havo been carrying away the bones, which they had dug or raked out of the loose earth- It is not un derstood just why these remains were not removed to the National Cemetery at Brownsville, as the war department had contracted for the removal and interment of the bodies of all soldiers who had fallen jn bat tle or died in that section surround ing Brownsville, and their interment in the National cemetery. These bodies were undoubtedly accidentally overlooked. President Roosevelt at once re ferred General Nettleton's letter to the war department, and the matter will be attended to as it should be. Orders will probably tie issued for the removal of the remains to the ceme tery at Brownsville. MR. DOHERTY IS MARRIED. Popular Traffic Manager of Browns ville Road Weds Mrs. Palfrey.
