Col Charles It Grcenleaf Chief Sur
geon of the Philippines under date of
Ma 31 his made quite an extended re
port tonccrning the health of the army
in the Philippines lie sas the health
of the soldiers continues good the rutlo
of non effectix ci for the nine montli3
ending March 31 being 7 02 per cent dur
ing which time the strength of the army
ranged from K791 to ft4C The princi
pil diseases were tphotd lexer m ilarial
fecr djsenter diarrhoea vmercal
diseases and wounds and injuries the
highest being malarial fever at 15 23
The improvement he says Is due to
n certain extent to greater care in san
itation and the weeding out of weaklings
and chronic invalids The seasoned men
who pass a ear in the tropics and ob
serve ordlnar hgienlc rules show a
small sick list
t Typhoid fever has not existed as an
epidemic and most casts are due to In
dhldual carelessness on the part of the
men The use of mosquito bars Is gen
eral and the men understand and appre
ciate the fact that It prevents the Inocu
lation of malarial poisoning by mos
quitoes Smallpox exists in a less degree
than before but has not entirely disap
ratal sunstroke Is scarcely known and
though men often drop out on the march
oxercome b heat they soon recover
Colonel Greenleaf sas The steady
Increase in enereal diseases among our
troops from S 97 per cent in September
1900 to 20 42 per cent of total sickness In
April furnishes ground Tor greatest ap
prehension and Is ait item not exceeded
In importance by any other affecting the
health and cfllclencv of the army In the
J Philippines Lest our forces become
seriously crippled and nn Irreparable in
jur be done to the people of theso
Islands the subject must be looked at
squarel and dealt xxlth as any other con
tagious disease
Colonel Greenleaf then discusses the
xarlous forms of the disease and sa3
that It spreads more particularly from
Manila and recommends the segregation
of xx omen in a certain part of the town
and a supervision of their health as a
precautionary measure Also that sol
diers be treated at a special hospital at
Las Banos as there Is a hot springs sim
ilar to that at Hot Springs Ark
Colonel Greenleaf sas It is poor econo
my to keep soldiers In the Held who haxo
suffered sex ere illness and approxes the
transfer of invalids to the United States
From August 1 to April 3 3 993 soldiers
xx ere sent home for treatment Many of
these cases were trifling and he thinks
the soldiers generally recoxered on their
way home Of insane soldiers 121 Lave
been sent home since August 1 and Col
onel Greenleaf accounts for the numuer
by sax ing they are casts of melancholia
and simple acute mania and the causes
are to be looked for In the general con
ditions surrounding the life of the soldiers
in the Philippines acting on predisposed
Contrary to the general belief in the
United States there Is not much disa
bility from alcoholism the habits of tho
enlisted men varjing but little from those
In the United States An exciting cause
for a certain proportion of insanity is
xx ell as the origit of a large proportion
of the drunkenness In the provinces is
the use of the so called xlno of tlw
natlxcs a crudely distilled alcohol which
taken in excess causes xxild delirium and
xarlous delusions
A portion of the report is dexoted to an
account of the management of affairs by
the Board of Health of Manila At the
date of the report the plague In Manila

Grcenleaf directed a number of contract
surgeons to report to the Board of Health

A Itullnfir on the Iament of Tnxen
on Hank IHvltlendii
The Auditor for the Treasury Depart
ment has reported to the Comptroller of
the Treasury a decision making an origi
nal construction of a statute as follows
The Merchants National Bank of lial
timore Md claims the refunding of 1
217 3 tax paid on dlxldcnds The claim
xx as alloxved March 1 1901 by the Com
missioner of Internal IJcxenuc xxhoso
finding of facts shows that from 1SGG to
1S71 the Merchants National Bank of
Baltimore owned stock In the Merchants
National Bank of Petersburg the Na
tional Bank of Tredericksburg and the
Shenandoah Valley National Bank at
Winchester and returned for taxation the
dtxldend received from such banks and
paid thereon the tax prescribed by law
Each of the said banks had also returned
the dlxidends dcclrred by them for taxa
tion and had pad thereon the tax pre
ribed by law The tax on the dlxidends
paid by the Merchants National Bank of
Baltimore so far as It Included the tax
on the dividends received from those
banks was a duplicate pament of the
tax on the same dlxidends
The Auditor said In his decision which
was approxed by Mr Tracexxell that he
did not base his Judgment upon the
ground that the plaintiff corporation Is a
mere agent or trustte for it own share
holders in receiving and pas Ing out this
dixidend He decided that the plaintiff
corporation Itself as a shareholder In the
Winchester bank is not bound to treat this
dixidend on xvhlch the income tax has
been paid as income liable to assessment
again by the Ooxernment whether it
found ft necessary to u e or chose to ap
pl the dividend In one way or another
