dier at Cliiekanuingiv camp showing
how they were neglected and (mated; by
incompetent officers and surgeons, while
stationed at the above named placa; as
shown by the investigating committee
appointed by General Breckeiri dj,-e.
Thd short statements ars clipped from
the Omaha, World-Herald and as the few
clippings will show there was not only
incompetency shown on the partof those
who were ln 'charjo of the sick, but
brutality was a factor in iFw-ta-jitroi nt
of the soldier as thuse testimonies
show: - j)V
Captain C. If. Price of the Sc&d
Kentucky gave this evidence of brutal
ity; -"August 25. I was visiting niun
bers oC my company in this hospital
when my attention was directed, to
shrieks from thu Ninth New York ward.
I went there and discovered Major Hub
bard attempting to administer medicine
to a patient. ,'
"I saw the surgeon take the patient
oy the shoulder and press him to the
cot with great force. Then he caught
the patient by the throat and held him
down. After this he wrenched the pa
tient's arm. I went into the tent and
said to tne surgeon: 1 don t know your
name or rank, but this butality must be
stopped. The harsh treatment of the
patient stopped, but the surgeon remark
ed that was the way to humor patients.'
The patient was delirious, which was the
reason he would not take the medicine.
This piece of brutality was seen by seve
ral other persons,"
Lieutenant G. J. Hardy of the Ninth
New York testified to these shameful
facts: "I fouud Private Leibgold un

washed on a cot in the sun. His Jiody
was rolling from side to side and Ins
eyes were glassy. Maggots were crawl
ing on his body. It was a terrible
and damnable pieco of neglect. U
Private Samuel L. Hinton of the First
Mississippi said: "I volunteered to come
over here to nurse members of my com
pany. While in the typhoid fever Vard
I saw helpless patients laying covered
with flies with no one to help thera. I
remember a man from the Ninth New
York in ward C. He was covered KWith
maggots. I had four tents to look after
in which were fifty-two patients. I have

The packers at the Battle of Santiago de Cuba
were all heroes. Tlielr her(,ir. Efforts In get
tin? Amuuitlou and Uatlous to the (rout
saved the day.
B. E. Butler, of pack-train No. 3, writ
ing from Santiago, Do Cuba, on July
' VVe all had diarrhoea in moreor less
violent form, and when we landed we
had no time to see a doctor for it was
a case of rush and rush night and day
to keep the troops supplied withamu
nition and rations, but thanks to
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy, we were able to keep at
work and health; in fact, I siucerly be
lieve that at one critical time this medi
cine was the indirect saviour of our
army, for if the packers had been unable
to work there would have been no wa
of getting supplies to the front. There
were no roads' that a wagon train could
use. My comrade and myself had the
good fortune to lay in a supply of this
medicine for our pack-train before wa
left Tampa and I kno-v in four cases it
absolutely saved life."
