ARMY STORES LEFT.
Hundreds of Tons of Provisions in
Hold of a Transport
Ka Beea Apparently Forg-ottea
Were Loaded About Foar Months
Abo for Cnba and Were
At the beginning of the war the
steamship La Grande Duchesse was
chartered as a government transport
from the Plant etennwhip line. She
took on troops at Port Tampa, andiwaa
one of the fleet that carried Shafter's
army to Cuba. Some time before it
sailed it also took on a large quantity
of subsistence stores.
Since then the vessel has been con
stantly in the government service. A
few days ago it arrived at Montauk
Point with troops from Santiago.
Later it reported for orders at this port,
says the New York Sun, to Col. Amos S.
Kimball, deputy quartermaster gen
eral. As the government had no fur
ther use for it. Col. Kimball was or
dered to return the ship to its owners.
By the terms of the charter it was to be
discharged from the service at Sa
vannah. The captain was ordered,
therefore, to take it to that port. On
Saturday the captain walked into the
office of Maj. SumiEerhayes, quarter
master U. S. A., one of Col. Kimball's
assistants, and is reported to have re
marked: "I'm ready to sail, but I thought I'd
tell you that there's a lot of provisions
on board my ship belonging to the gov
ernment. Perhaps the government
would like to take them off."
The case of La Grande Duahesse w as
reported to Col. Kimball, and he re
ported the facts to the quartermaster
general at Washington, recommending
that a board of survey be ap
pointed to find out why the stores
had not been unloaded Ir. Cuba.
Brig. Gen. George L. Gillespie,
eommar.ding the ct-partment of the
east, was ordrrei? to appoint such a
board, ar.d in bis special order do'rg
this, it was specified fhnt the appointees
were "to determine when and whore
the stores were londed. to whom or
what port they v.t-.v shipped, and fix
the responsibility for their condition
It is reported thr.t between 1.100 and
1.200 tons of ;:!! kind of subsistence
stores were Mowed r.v.-ay in the La
Grande Puc-ht-.-st-': i.n'.il. There were

It is learned that the -aptsin cf the
