' Strenuous Days Ahead for Regu~ lars and Guardsmen in Working Out Military Problems. REVIEW AN INSPIRING SCENE Indiana Soldiers Win Praise of Gen. Hodges by Their Splendid Appearance. The truce Is at an end betwen oppos Ing armies at Fort Benjamin Harrison and today the forces under Brig. Gen. Hodges will move upon those of Gen, Might B. Somebody, who has arrive^ + \vith the main column of his army and is strongly intrenched to the north and east of Fort Benjamin Harrison beyond the Fail Creek bottomfe* The Tenth and Twenty-sixth Infantry Regiments of the regular army, recruited to full war strength from the Indiana and Ohio national guard regiments, reinforced by the Sixth Cavalry and the engineers, \vill move out and against the "enemy" J this morning. This afternoon the regiments of the national guard, each under command of its regimental commander, will also move against the "enemy," each regiment provided with twenty rounds of ammunition to the man. Fighting lasting all day is promised. The soldiers of the national guard will have plenty to do in 1 working out problems in attack and defense* The regular troops will select, prepare and occupy a .defensive position to meet the impending attack from Gen. Somebqdy's army. The entire division, under command of Brig-, Gen. William J. McKee ot Indiana, will be in action next Thursday. Considering the positions the opposing forces now occupy, It is unlikely tTiat there will be a biff battle until that day. With the exception of the big review of the 6,000 troops in camp in the forenoon yesterday, being Labor day and a holiday, It was comparatively qutet at Maneuver Camp. The truce arranged on Saturday ,was in effect until last nigjit, when Gen, Somebody moved up with-his muin col- limn. Many officers and unlisted men received permission to leave the camp yesterday afternoon, and attended the Speedway races and the circus in the city. In camp the men engaged in baseball, boxing, singing and other sports, and the 1,000 or more visitors who came to camp spent the afternoon listening to concerts by the First and Second Indiana Infantry bands at their camps and ft concert by the Tenth United States Infantry Band in front of Brig. Gen. Charles U Hodges's headquarters. Photographers and picture card men reaped H harvest. s - REVIEW AN INSPIRING SCENE, 1 With guns and accouterments Hashing In the bright sunlight, their steps precise, the regimental bands playing, colors flying, buglers sounding calls at the command of the officers and the air -ringing with the martial niusic of drum anO bugle corps, the MOO troops in camp, led by. Brig. Gen, William J, McKee of Indiana, marched In review before Brig. Gen, Hodges yesterday to the admiration of hundreds of spectators in the big field south of the Fort Benjamin Harrl- eon interurban station. The Indiana national guard made a · splendid showing, euch a good showing, in fact, that it was a complete-surprise-to-Brigj-Qenr-Hodgea- It was 9 o'clock when the troops moved 1 toward the field. · Brig. Gen. McKee and fcJs staff entered the field a few minutes ahead of the troops. Guards were stationed along the fences, and no one ex* cept regular army and national' guard officers and their families .and guests was permitted inside the field. Seats had been arranged for their accommodation. .Shortly after Gen, McKee and staff entered the field, which contains, approximately eighty acres, the First Brigade, Jed by Col, Harry A. Greene, Tenth Infantry, . commanding., the. brigade 1 for the review, came down the road. The Tenth Infantry, having the right of the line, followed the brigade commander, led by (Lieut, Col, George R. Cecil and the regl- jmental band and bugle corps. The regl- frnent was accompanied by its machine gun platoon, Next came, the Twenty- plxth Infantry, headed by Col. Charles Booth, with band and machine gun platoon, and lastly the .Third Ohio infantry, Col. Catrow commanding, with band and bugle corps. Company I, Engineer Corps, , U.. S. ,, the hospital corps and the Ohio Battalion 1 of Engineers, marching as infantry, Maj, Quigg commanding, brought up the rear of the First Brigade.. Col. Harry B. Smith, Indianapolis, Second Indiana Infantry, led'trfe Second Brigade. His regiment had the right of the line and was followed by Col. Edwin P, Thayer of Greenfield and the Third Infantry, with band and bugle corps, and Col, gtephen 'A, Bowman of Waterloo and the First Indiana Infantry, with band and bugle corps. Next the Sixth United States Cavalry, Col. Alexander Rodgers^commanding, with . Its big band mounted on white horses and bugle corps mounted on brown horses, en- tei*cd the field followed by Company A, signal corps, U. S. A,, Capt Cruikshank commanding and Company A qf the In- fiiana signal corps. FORMED IN THREE LINES. The troops entered the field through a gate near the west end, marched west to the fence and south nearly to the inter- tirban tracks, where they turned east and across the field. The First Brigade formed the first line, the Second the second and the mounted troops formed the third. Formation in line was by battalion, Wfien the troops had formed the three lines filled half of the field. Gen. Hodgos and his staff entered the field when the line was complete, at 10:06. "Attention" was sounded by tbe brigade trumpeter under orders by Gen. McKee, the trumpeter being none other than Kid Palton, the pugilist, chief trumpeter of the Second Indiana Infantry. Immediately /the call was repeated by the chief i trumpeter of each regiment, and the soldiers came to attention, the men having been ^at "rest" -tifter the halt. Gen. Hodges and his staff and Gen, 'McKee and staff, nil riding prancing horses, rode iat .H trot along the three lines inspecting the troops, each regimental band playing in turn as they passed. The numbers included "Marching Through Georgia," "Maryland, My Maryland" and other patriotic airs and marches. Gen. v McKee and staff accompanied Gen. Hodges and ptaff back to the flag marking the point from which Gen, Hodges was to review the troops. Trumpeter "Dalton," whose real name is Denniton, sounded the command to mar9h and Gen. McKee and staff met the head of the column as it approached from the east side, at the center of the field, As Gen. McKee and staff passed Gen, Hodges and his staff, each officer saluted the commanding; general with his saber. Col, Greene, brigade commander, and his officers did the same. Regimental colors were dipped as the troops passed. The step and alllgnment of the Tenth Infantry waa perfect. The band dropped out of the column to continue playing In front of the reviewing officer as the regiment passed. The band of each succeeding regiment did likewise, falling in the rear of the machine gun platoon or the rear company. · The troops passed to the company front formation, the lines of the regulars be- · Ing perfect. The Twenty-sixth Infantry followed the Tenth, and in turn,was followed by the Third Ohio.

The Indiana national guard as It passed received high commendation, from the regular army officers viewing the review. The.Indianapolis battalion--the First Battalion of - the Second Indiana Infantry, Maj. Henri C. Conde, commanding--arid the Second Battalion, composed of the Crewfordsville, Winchester, Portland and Kokomo companies, made an excellent showing, the lines of the companies which composed the battallone being nearly perfect. Company I, Engineer Corps, U. S. A,, composed of 146 men, marched by, company front, at thcwrear of the First Brigade, with a splendid line. An excellent showing was made also by the battalion of Ohio Engineers and the Third Indlana'Infantry, with the exception of one or two companies Maj, W, H. Kershner, inspector general on the staff of Gen. McKee, rode to the First Indi-i ana Regiment before it approached the reviewing officer and straightened the lines, The regular hospital 'corps passed, each man carrying a first aid package and making a splendid showing. The regular hospital company was led by Capt. Pipes, The Indiana Hospital Corps brought up the rear of the Second Brigade with a very creditable line, The passing cavalry inspired every one with praise for the troopers, who rode by on their brown, black and sorrel horses, in perfect lines, led by their splendid band, mounted on white horses. After passing the reviewing officer, the cavalry formed Into a column by squads at a trot, Company A, signal corps, U. S* A., and Company A* signal corps, Indiana national guard, brought up the rear, mounted and pulling* their-wire reel carts. . TWO FALL/ BY EXHAUSTION. ' During--the--review, -which--took, -place under a hot sun, the heat being diminished only slightly by a gentle breeze, two privates of national guard regiments were exhausted by the heat and fainted in line. The men were Private Thomas Birdell, Company G, Third Ohio Infantry, anc Private Fred A. Lester, Company A (Vincennes) of the First Indiana Infantry The men were carried off, the field on stretchers by members of the hospital corps. . r Just before the troops started to pass in review, a beautiful sorrel horse, ridden by Capt. Charles L. Barry, quartermaster or- the-Seo0nd~Indiana^ Infantry, became frightened and felt backward, Capt. Barry however, realizing that he could not con.?- trol the horse, jumped to the ground just as the animal fell, escaping serious Injury The horse ran away and darted about the field until it was captured by a trooper o; the cavalry patrol. The review ended at 11:15. It required Just'one hour by the watch for the troops to pass in review. Brig. Gen. Hodges was highly pleased with the review and complimented the In41afla troops at its, close,' ' 44 Tha review 'was very creditable,' sajd he, "The reglnqents of the Indiana national guard did very well. I wa surprised they should do so well with the little training they, have had.-' MACOMB GETS PROMpTION. Col. Montgomery M.

Mayor Shank expects to shift the blame for the delay in the Improvement of the city's flre-flghting equipment from his shoulders to those of the City Council within the next two weeks. The mayor said last night he,expects to send a letter to his advisory commission when It meets Sept, 19, informing the members hje has done all he can to bring about peace In the administration and to ^ break -the. deadlock between the Council and the Board of Public Works. He will inform the commission that it should not place any blame on his shoulders for not carry- Ing out its recommendations 'concerning the flre department. When the commission was , formed It made a formal report to the mayor that certain Improvements should-be made In the city's fire-fighting equipment, including the construction rof additional engine houses. With these additions a substantial reduction In flre insurance rates could be made, the commission believes* Tho City Council has refused to make an appropriation for Improved fire facilities be- _f ore^-the^Board ^TM,Wlorks_jece_ive M s _M4»i. and the board will not make a move until an appropriation Is forthcoming, The advisory commission - will not attempt to restore peace between the City CounclP and the Board of Public Works over the appropriation question. Fearing that tiny incursion on Its part in the eight months' deadlock might cause still further complications, » the v mayor's advisers are expected to steer dear of the deadlock shores/ ADVISORS'DO NOT MEET, The commission was to have held Us first meeting since the summer vacations yesterday afternoon, but the failure of a quorum to appear at the Board of Trade Building:, where the meeting was called, resulted In an adjournment for another two weeks. Six members were sitting In the Governor's room, when someone mentioned the deadlock and the relative merit of the stand taken by the Council and the board, They were discussing the city administration In general, when one of the members remarked: "Well, now, there's'the fight between the Board of Works and the Council; ought we not make some recommendation In^thaU" The answer came quf '"Now, this say anything to the mayor or to any one else about that deadlock. If wo make any recommendations we shall just be complicating things all the more, and we'd better keep out of it altogether," Other members agreed, 'It is believed, the advisory commission will go on record as favoring the construction of a crosstown street car line. The recom-' mendfction likely would have been made at yesterday's meeting if the qliorum had been present, GIVES REQUISITION PAPERS. ,. , j Governor Authorizes Rtturn of Prisoner Wanted in Grant County.
