DRILLING BY RECIMENT PLENTY OF WORK FOR THE BOYS AT CHICKAMAUGA Until the Men and Officer-* Are Thor oughly Familiar Willi the Maneu vers This Will Be Kept In as a Matter of Dally Routine Nearly Fifty Thousand Men Are Now in the Camp. Special to The St. Paul Glabe. CHICKAMAUGA, Ga., May 26.— The day has been one without special ex citement or incident and was passed by the two Minnesota regiments in the daily routine of drill. All of the troops here were put through regimental drill today, and this will be repeated daily until officers and men are thoroughly familiar with the movements. The first of the Grigsby rough riders, troops A, C, and D, recruited from the Dakotas, arrived today. They are under command of Maj. Freon and there are about 200 men in the bat talion. They are a fine soldierly lot of fellows and were warmly greeted. They report an uneventful trip, but tell of lavish hospitality all along the line. The weather is still extremely warm, but the Minnesota men do not seem to be suffering very .severely. The men from the North in point of fact, do not seem to mind the drilling in hot weather more than do those accus tomed to Southern suns. • According to the official report posted today in Gen. Brooke's headquarters there are now 42,000 men in camp. Gen. Wade's division is now com plete. The Eighth New York, which arrived today, was assigned to his command. Since the men arrived at camp, com plaint has been common against the quality of food furnished and there was particular objection to ihe Id. k of fresh meat. This has now been rem | edied and the men who were getting I tired of bacon were given on abur.- I dance of beef. In future it is believed this trouble will not recur, and it is I also thought that arrangement _oiii pleted today will give all the men in camp an ample water supply COMPANY X, TWELFTH. Chatty lidter From the Boys of Wa seca. CAMP THOMAS, Chickamauga, May 21 (with Company X, Twelfth Minne sota regiment).— The uniforms for Com pany X will be issued tomorrow.

After a hot night- in Chattanooga, and a sleep in the cars we were taken yesterday by train to Chickamauga, ar riving at 10 o'clock a. m. We were marched out to Missionaary Ridge, a distance of three miles, where we ar rived at noon. The weather was hot and many of the boys succumbed. Four of our company fainted and were left in the rear. They were Privates Haach, McCoy, Segar and Sergeant Mott. Thty are all right this morning. Our guard last r.ight was John Asken and Fred Dwi k!e. Today's guard detail is Privates Dunn, McWald and Giassman. Sixteen boys repoited at the hospital, but all were returned to duty except Corporal Jones, Privates Radenbaugh, Nelson, Haach and Frank Sirco. And these will probably be all right tomor row. The extreme heat marching yesterday is the cause. We are camped on the old battleground. Missionary Ridge. Already the boys have picked up many relics of the late war, such as buttons, bullets, gun stocks, ram rods and pieces of shell. They are all in a poor state of preservation except bullets. Water is scarce. We have got the best well of any company in the regi ment. We struck a spring, and as other companies guarded their wells, we follow suit. Sergeant Franklin detailed force enough to stone up and cover the well in first-class shape. Private Chisholm has the credit of locating the . pring. — Three privates from an Ohio regi ment have been 'dentifled as being the ones who committed an assault upon ! the daughter of a farmer near camp yesterday.

Special Correspondence The St. Paul Globe, ON BOARD TRAIN IN UTAH, May 19 (with Company I, Thirteenth Regiment).— Company I left the train at Cheyenne and marched through some of the streets and back to train, where breakfast was served. Little can be said for. Cheyenne. It Is a typi cal wild and woolly Western town. We left there at 8:45. At 9:30 we caught our first glimpse of a snow-covered mountain. The next stop was made at the Ames monument. This monument is located at the highest alti tude of any monument in the world. It Is a huge solid pyramid of red granite rising to a height of about fifty fvjetf On one side are inscribed the words: "In memory of Oakes Ames anfl Oliver Ames." On another face is a bas relief of Oakes Ames and on a a third that of Oliver Ames. Thlß monument marks the highest point on I tire Union Pacific, 8,247 feet above sea level. Stopped at Laramie for dinner. The boys are agreed that this town contained the prettiest girls seen on the trip. While here we saw^a regiment of cow boys, raised for tho war. There were' about, seventy-five men in line. Of these about five were real cowboys, it seemed. After leaving Laramie the boys caught sight of Elk mountain, the highest snow capped mountain yet seen on the trip. From here on the train ran across many enormous droves of sheep. At Medicine Bow, Wyo., Sergeant Chris tian and Sergeant Langdon boarded the en gine and rode ln the cab from there to the town of Rawlins. During a large portion of this trip the train ran at the rate of fifty five miles an hour. . At Rawlins we stopped "for about an hour and had supper. At this point Capt. Corris ton, Lieut. Fitzgerald and Private Klngsley took a ride on the engine. Private Kingsley tried his hand at "firing" for the next fifty or sixty miles. The boys all asserted that from the time he took the shovel the train made the slowest time on the trip. During this part of the ride we saw sev eral prairie dogs and one large eagle. Noth ing in the shape of vegetation to be seen but sage brush. Reached Rock Springs, Wyo., about 9:30 p. m. Thursday we reached the prettiest stretch of country yet seen. High snow covered peaks, picturesque rocks, rushing torrents and mountain streams, and just be fore arriving at Ogden we came upon the "Devil's Gate" on one side and the "Devil's Slide" on the other. Took breakfast at Og den, where we stopped for sixty minutes. As the rain continued to pour the men were not permitted to leave the train. Ogden Is the best looking town we have reached since leaving Minneapolis and St. Paul. It has about 20,000 inhabitants. As phalt streets, electric street railway and many other modern improvements.

May 20 we arrived at bes£ part of tho trip, in California. At Sacraimento the people had a band, lunch, and a^grand welcome for us all. In fact a reception that the boys will never forget. They could n&t do erough for us, and the train w;aa simply filled with flowers of all descriptions.' 1 Fruit, such as oranges and cherries,; waa handed to us ell along the l'.ne In California. Little flower giils were on hand to meet us at every s'.alion. Arrived at Oakland at 2 a. m. the 21st. Stayed in curs until 4 a. m., and then took ferry at 5 a. m. for 'Frisco, where Red Crc«3 society served lunch. After eating the regi ment received orders to march. After a five mile tramp we arrived at our destination. Had to lay around five hours before tenta arrived from the depot. Each company re ceived eighteen tents; about flic men to a tent, with only four bales of straw to be divided equally among them. Some of t_e boys bought their own straw and were gcod and mad about it. In the meantime it started to rain and as the company grounds wera sandy it v,a; slmost impossible to make to ■takes held. TiiU is ail the news up to date. UI_I-\ !•- S BOYS PRAISED. Wm -in Words of Greeting: ln the San Francisco Press. Copies of the San Francisco Chronicle, telling of the arrival of the Thirteenth at San Francisco, show that there has been ro exaggeration In the stories of the warm greeting given the Minnesota men. The Chronicle says: The first to arive here was the belated half of the the Twentieth Kansas volunteers, who had slept at Oakland pier, and tha Thirteenth Minnesota regiment, which is not only the crack corps _f tte state, but bids (air to be one of the banner organizations ot the campaign. If blood tells and good looks go for anything the men from Minnesota should be heard from in Manila. That the government expects well of them is proved by the tact that orders have been received to send the Minnesotans with the first Manila expedition. The Minnesotans are magnificent. They aro giants ln stature, with fine clean limbs and strong determined faces. They are descend ants of those lusty pioneers who fought tha Indians at Fort Snelling and wrested the rich land of the Northwest from the fierce guar dians of the soil. All the companies except M, of St. Cloud, and L, of Minneapolis, are well equiped and well acioutered. Neither of these companies have any guns, and M keeps close to its tents, because it feels sensitive over its lack of equipment. But they have other things to be proud of. L holds th_ pennant for rapid recruiting, the full comple ment having been reached twenty-two hours and a half after the books were opened. That shows how patriotism grows and blossoms in the Northwest. The regiment as a whole presents a fine ap pearance. The uniforms are of the national guard and the buttons bear the state ssal of Minnesota. When the call for men came the state graciously presented these uniforms to the government. The tents, all new and bright and white, were the gift of the cit'zens of Minneapolis, who gave $7,500, with the ex- press proviso that it was to be used for any thing the privates might need. James J Hill president of the Great Northern railroad has deposited his personal gift of $7,500 with a Hong Kong bank, to be used for the men after they reach Manila. This gift Is also* specified to be for the men with the rifles. The best families of the state have given of their sons to this regiment. The command ing officer is Col. C. McC. Reeve, a West Pointer and owner of big flour mills, a banker and a late member of the legislature. Mrs Reeve accompanies tho colonel, and will re main in San Francisco, though she may go to Manila later. Lieut. Col. Fred W.

HABIGHORST fr CO., Corner Seventh and Wacouta MINNESOTA'S NEW QUOTA IT WILL BE ABOUT ONE REGI MENT OF VOLTJNTEEBS Nearly Half the Number of Men Asked From the State, It Is Said at Washington, Will Be Needed to Fill the Regiments Now ln the Field— Favorites Are Falling Wires. Washington Bureau, St. Paul Globe, ) Corcoran Building. ) Special to The St. Paul Globe. WASHINGTON, D. C, May 26.— Just about one regiment of volunteers will be Minnesota's allotment under the new call. Congressmen Stevens spent consider able time at the war department today conferring with Adjt. Gen. Corbin and other officials in relation to Minnesota matters. Mr. Stevens is urging on the department the advantages of St. Paul as a first-class horse market. It will be some days before It is de cided Whether Batteries A and B, the artillery organizations of the Minnesota national guard, are to be called out or Whether a troop of cavalry will be ac cepted from the state. EXBRTING A PULL. The new call for troops has caused a great stir among members of both houses of congress, who have been thronging the White house and war de partment to make sure of "placing" a lot of their constituents ln the official openings thus created. They have been much disappointed to learn that the president has made up his mind not to use the new men for organizing more skeleton regiments, but first to fill up the regiments which were mustered in under the earlier call with much less than their proper com plement of men. These regiments themselves, officers and men, are hoping for such relief. All experienced army officers are advis ing it, and the president's own judg ment heartily approves it. It is going to be hard work to withstand congress ional pressure, and it behooves the hon est sentiment of the country to make New Ladies' Waist Button Sets, at Leading Jeweler itself heard at this juncture in support of the national policy. REGIMENTS SHY. It is said as an illustration that near ly half of the allotment of Minnes„ta under the new call, will be required r? nil up the regiments already in the field from that state, out of which Ben have been dropped by surgeon's n-jr tion or by illness or proved inability ti endure the hardships of compaign life The whole purpose of makini; Mm Ml* volunteers into new regiments would ha to furnish more salaried berths for pol iticians and their favorites. Senator Pettigrew called at the war department today with a request fn .ti the governor of South Dakota that that state's apportionment of troops un dor yesterday's call he made up of cay. airy. Adjt. Gen. Corbin stated thai the apportionment will not be made . >i two or three days, but that South Da. kola's request will have every C eration. AS TO THE SI2COM- (ALI,. Authorities I'ndecldi-d About Ar* ci'inii ik-i- of Independent Tro-oiiN. WASHINGTON. May 2G— ln the rush of mi: ltary preparations the war department offi cials have not been able to rive much attaa< tion to the regulations for the prorur.-nii-nt of the 75,000 additional volunteers cal'td for yesterday by the president. It is still uncertain Just how far the authorities will go toward, recruiting the forces themselves, nor Is lt positively known that independent organiza tions, companies, battalions and regiments, raised by individuals, will be accepted en bloc. If by so doing the department Is re quired to accept the officers with the men. In deed, it is now questioned whether under the law the department could, If It would, accept services of officers under such conditions, as the governors of the states appear to be the only persons authorized to Issue commissions below the field grade. The department officials wrre engaged today largely with the execution of a new law pro viding for the organization of certain inde pendent forces, with the result that lt was able t ) announce regulations governing tho examination ot applicants for commissions in the engineer regiments and the organization ot the Immune regiment*.
