largest troopship in the service, the

decided on to transport regulars to
relieve as many volunteers now in the
Philippines, the Firsi Nebraska being
neluded in the volunteers to come

Washington, Dec. 12. The war
department has begun in earnest the
relief of the volunteer troops now sta
tioned at Manila by regulars. This
afternoon Secretary A'.ger signed an
order designating for this purpose six
regiments of United States infantry
out of eight held in reserve for service
in sub-tropical countries.
The regiments are the Twentieth,
at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.; the Third,
at Fort Snelling, Minn.; the Twelfth,
at Jefferson Barracks, Mo., and Fort
Riley, Kan.; the Seventeenth, at
Columbus Barracks, O.; the Fourth,
at Fort Sheridan, and the Twenty
second, at Fort Crook, Neb.
They will go forward to Manila as
soon as transportation can be provided.
It may be that the two regiments 6till
held in reserve, the Twenty-fourth
and Twenty-sixth infantry, will be
joined to the others by the time of
sailing. The regiment were selected
in the adverse ratio to the loss sus
tained by them in the Cuban cam
paign. The voluneers in Manila will
be retired in the order in which they
reached that city.
Want Moriuonlsm Rebuked.
Cleveland, O., Dec. 12. At the
union ministers' meeting held here
today resolutions were adopted de
nouncing the election of Brigham H.
Roberts as a member of the house of
representatives from Utah, because he
belongs to the Mormon faith.
The resolutions, which will be trans
mitted to the house of representa
tives, claim that Roberts is a tool ot
the Mormon priesthood and urges that
body to refuso to recognize him as a
member; that the most stinging reouke
possible should b admistered to
Mormonism, which threatens church,
state and home. If Mr. Roberts is
seated it is claimed that it will be
taken by Mormonism as a great vic
tory over congress and a notice that
Mormon political methods are 9a fe
from interference by congress.

when he crawled on his hands and
knees to the hoTie of Mr. Herman

awakening the family by tapping on a
window. He was taken in and made
as comfortible as possible and was
afterwards conveyed to his home Dr.

Reorganisation of the Army.
Washington, Dec. 9 The house
committee on military affairs began
consideration today of the importnt
measures for tho reorganization and
increase of tho army to meet tho con
ditions arising out of the war. Such
progress was made that Chairman
Hull said at the closo of the meeting
he not only expected to report the bill
to the house before the holidays, but
also to paFS it by that time. In order
to expedite tho work daily committee
meetings will be held, beginning next
Monday. General Miles and General
Schottelrl, the present and the late
commanding officers of tne army, will
be invited to be present on Monday to
offer fcugestions and rerommenda
tions. Following them, the various
heads of stalf bureaus, the adjutant
general, commissary gt neral, quarter
master general, etc., will be heard.
More than usual interest attached to
the meeting today in view of the
effect of this legislation on tho future
status of the army. The bill under
consideration was the Hull bill, intro
duced by Chairman Hull and having
the approval of Secretary Alger. The
other army bill, dravn by Genernl
Miles was not before the committee,
so that no comparison ot them was
attempted. The Miles bill probably
will be introduced in tho houso Mon
day and referred to tho military com
mittee so as to bo taken up when Gen
eral Miles is heard. For today, how
ever, the committee confined its atten
tion to going over the various provi
sions of the Hull bill.
Mr. Hull explained the plan of the
measure in so shaping the arms ol the
service, as to bring the total effective
forco to 100,000 and this lead to gen
eral discussion. No conclusions were
reached and no votes taken on any
features of the bill, the whole subject
