Tihe Daily News Vir.g;on special says that General Oijka, a: a. reception given at hie home last, right to his comrades of the Medal Cj-jrlouor Lfgion, denounced as false the dain iia-t volunteer officers and soldiers Wre themselves responsible for the eick-. tiess in the camps.

The ibaWes they fought Wire won as gallantly any recorded in history. And yet -the PSjU which our soldiers had most to dread wfcsjnot bullets, but disease which ewept cfetr our camps and destroyed hundreds where bullets killed one.

So far as Cufba and Porto Rico are conceited, -they are und..r an established Oatholio arcihbishoprie, whitfn will not b distufted In ar.y way. -The church authority ia centered1 at Santiago, that being the old capital of the Island, and til arch-b!uop of Santiago has two suffragans, one t Havana and another Ui Porto Rico.

WON'T SPEAK, Chicago, Sept. 30.-The unusual spectacle of a minister of the gospel sitting in beer halls and absorbing the sights of midnight revelers In thetr gayest hours was revealed to the email coterie which accompanied Rev. J. Q. A. Henry on the rounds of all th allnlght downtown satoor.a. Dr. Henry after the meeting to the old Waverly theater hi West Madison street, ar.d a passing glance into a few saloons along that thor oughfare in which women and music are the drawing cards, sought the center of the city, and In half an hour vls'ited four places popular wOth the mysteroes of Clark street and neighboring avenues. In the party with Dr. Henry were two detectives, three newspaper men and L. E. Joseph and Charles Peters, appointed by the Young People's Christian Temperance Union, to accompany the reform leader. The first place visited was the Waukesha, a basement saloon in the heart of the city, which for a number of years has had, K is alleged, a bad reputation. There were about twenty women and girls of different ages and of varied stages of unattractiveness sit ting In the Waukesha when Dr. Henry en tered. The party went in by twos, and at different times so that no suspicion was attracted, n-verybotly ordered dr.nks or clsars, the clergyman taking ginger ale. Various couples entered and went out while the investigating coterie was present. There' was suggestive echoes from prtvate rooms, an occasional burst of laughter ard a busy flitting of (waiters with trays into these, secret recesses behind closed doors. Fr'.drx-h's basement saloon, Clark and Madison streets, wa9 Inspected. There was a giddy eet at the tables. Flashily dressed girls were on all sides. Dr. Henry drank a second glass of ginger aie, took an inventory of the scene for future refefence, an dthe party passed out. The Mendota, Clark and Lake, ai'io a basement resort, was sought. There were not so many girls there, but the class was even worse than seen at Frtdrlch's. One girl, with a broad brimmed hat and tail feathers waving high in the air sat down at tho table with the pastor and two reporters. She ordpred gtn and drar.k It down with a gulp and seemed greatly disappointed when her new friends bade her good night and left to ramble northward. ' The O'.ymp'.a was the best place on the program. Dr. Henry has long upheld mat the low vaudeville performances In saloons and theaters are responsible for a good deal of immorality among the young. Here was discovered a fair sample of this class of amusement. Upon a etage at the west end of the hall dancing and shrill singing was going on. Superannuated women, whoe haggard and forlorn appearance even thick daubs of rouge could net hide, sat at tables near the platform waiting their turn on the boards. Probably fifty other girls sat about the hall and saw these sights. Not a few were young, one or two not much beyond thirteen years of age perhaps. A couple ostensibly mother and daughter, occupied chairs at a table somewhat removed from the rest. Beer was being drunk here, as to the other nlact. by the gallon. Some of the girls drank whliskcy and many cock tails or rln. A niano piayer filled In the Intervals "between acts," with crashing, mad discords. The Olympia bad both music and vaudeville, the Waukesha had an or chestra, but the other resorts seemed to be getting along well enough with simply wine and women. Dr. Henry said that there was no t neces sity of proecutlig the Investigation farther. "I have seen enough," he said to a reporter, "to convinoe me that city ordinances are being disregarded and violated with apparent sense of safety. I am also convinced that some sort of entertainment will have to be Introduced to take the place of theae beer halls and dens. The city has forbid the congregating of women in saloons, the selling of liquor to women in grogshops, the resorting of low characters In dramshops, and the Introduction of music there. In the Olympia, for instance, there was not only piano playing, but vaudeville of a low sort.' Women m short skirts kicked up before the eyes of man and woman, boy adn. girL Everything done on such a tKage Is suggestive and conduc ive of degredation. Such sights and auch surroundings are not for girls or youn men and boys. They doprave men who havs reached the ripeness of years. I am not surprised by what I have seen. I know that these slghta are nightly scenes in Chi cago, and ithat there are countless others Infinitely worse. But the evil must not on'y be stamped out. A proper substitute must be discovered that will satisfy ar.d enter-taJn the floating crowd of men and' women who form the major portion of the patrons. The meeting in oU Waverly hall was at tended by a thousand people. Father Cleary mad a powerful plea for temperance and municipal purity. Dr. Henry delivered an oiher Dhiltiolc against common ve and law Infringement. He rapped the city gov. ernment sharply a number of times, stating that W the present regime saw fit to k't such freedom and1 rncense rule, the voters at the next election (would rise up and put in new set of men. mmmk mWmm PllllTlHtO MM) 4 preclude the possibility of competition.
