Uncle Sam in
T has been a mat
ter of surprise
that the second
American occupation
of Cuba was accom
plished with so much
smoothness and dis
patch It was the
middle of August
when the Cuban in
surrection broke out
and it was the mid
dle of September be
fore it became evi
dent that the United
ciiaiiles e ma- States might need to
goon take a hand to re
store order in the Is
land The situation developed so rap
idly that it was only a Ze days after
the landing of the American peace
commissioners in Cuba that the de
cision was made to re establish Amer
ican authority In the island The army
and navy officers had had but little
time to prepare for such a movement
of troops and vessels of war as be
came necessary yet the emergency
found them ready for the task in hand
There was no delay in sendri war
ships and marines and bluej tcets to
Cuban waters and the moment it was
known that soldiers too would be
needed orders were given for the regi
ments to be on the move mobilization
was begun transports were provided
and embarkation of troops proceeded
with the utmost promptitude
When the brigade of 750 marines
under Major Wendell C Neville was
landed in Ilavana and conveyed by
trolley cars to Camp Columbia the
movement was accomplished with such
precision that no hitch of any kind oc
curred and the webfooted soldiers
were stationed at their post of duty al
most before the Cubans knew what
had happened When President Roose
velt telegraphed Acting Secretary of
War Oliver Arrange for 0000 troops
to start for Cuba as soon as possible
the acting secretary was able to wire
Secretary Taft at Havana shortly aft
erward Troops now moving and to
add that he expected to complete the
shipment of the entire force in ten days
The difference between these condi
tions and those which prevailed when
Cuba was first occupied by American
forces in 1S0S suggests that our army
and navy have learned much from
their experiences of the past eight
years In Cuba the Philippines and
China and that much benefit has re-

suited from the reforms instituted in
the war department and the creation
of the general staff The law establish
ing the general staff went into effect
Aug 15 1003 The body consists of
officers detailed from the army at
large under such rules as may be pre
scribed by the president Its duties
are to prepare plans for national de
fense and mobilization of troops in
time of war to investigate questions
relating to the efficiency of the army
and its preparedness for war and to
assist the secretary of war and other
officers in performance of duty
The general staff is composed of one
chief of staff and two general officers
from the army not below the grade of
brigadier general four colonels sis
lieutenant colonels twelve majors and
twenty captains
It Is the duty of the chief of staff to
supervise all troops of the line and lie
is under the direct authority of the
president himself The efficiency of
the general staff is believed to have
been increased by the separation of the
duties of chief of staff and lieutenant
general Formerly the lieutenant gen
eral discharged the duties of chief of
staff and the head of this supervising
body changed every time a lieutenant
general went on the retired list and a
new man took this place of honor We
have had tour lieutenant generals
Chaffee Bates Corbin and MacArthur
In less than a year A few months
ago a new departure was instituted by
the appointment of a comparatively
young officer Brigadier General James
Franklin Bell as chief of staff He is
the first officer to hold the post without
being at the same time lieutenant gen
eral He might have been a major gen
eral but when a short time ago he
could have been promoted to this rank
he allowed his friend General Jesse M
Lee to have It because General Lee ls
older and would not have another
chance while General Bell has still
fourteen years of active service and
may have other opportunities for pro
motion to the higher rank General
Bell has been In active supervision of
Cuba Again
the movement of troops for the occupa
tion of Cuba and since his arrival in
the Island has been first In command
there by virtue of his rank He is a
hard worker and has seen service on
all kinds of duty Born in Kentucky
In ISoG he attended the public schools
and then went to West roint from
which he graduated In 1S78 with an
excellent record to his credit For
some jears he saw service in the west
and he commanued a troop in the
bloody fight at Wounded Knee His
record in the west was that of a fear-
less and venturesome Indian fighter
He was on the Pacific coast when war
was declared against Spain and sailed
for Manila as a major of volunteer en
gineers and participated In the attack
on that city It was at Manila that he
performed a feat which for bravery
and endurance was unsurpassed in the
annals of the campaign that of swim
ming at night around the Spanish
earthworks fronting on the bay in
search of information Congress evinc
ed its belief that General Bell is no
tin soldier when it awarded hfm a
medal of honor for gallantry in action
General Bell assumed the duties of
chief of staff last spring just in time
to supervise the arrangements for giv
ing aid through the army to the strick
en people of San Francisco Brigadier
General Funston was active in that
work and singularly enough he and
General Bell are agaki closely asso
ciated In the occupation of Cuba
Though General Bell has been ordered
there so as to supervise to the best ad
vantage the disposition of troops and
is the ranking officer present the im
mediate command of the troops de

When the transport Sumner sailed
from New York with 900 regulars for
service in Cuba she had on board a
young officer of engineers whose name
is a household word not only in the
United States but all over the world
This officer was Lieutenant Ulysses S
Grand 3d son of Major General Fred
erick D Grant commander of the de
partment of the east Being a grandson
of one of the greatest soldiers of the
time he inherits a love for the smell
of gunpowder and his chief fear has
been that his country would see no
more war during his lifetime He was
born in 18S1 and one of the last acts
of his distinguished grandfather was to
write a letter addressed to The Pres
ident of the United States asking for
the present Lieutenant Grants appoint
ment to West Point It was handed to
President McKinley in 1SG9 and thus
the appointment the elder General
Grant desired was made The young
man made a fine record at the acade
my better than that of his grandfa
ther but as an old officer put it he
will have to work some to beat him as
a soldier Lieutenant Grant has seen
service in the Philippines and has been
military aid to the president
It has been estimated that there are
about 130000000 worth of American
investments in Cuba The industries
which have been built up through
American enterprise and American
money in the past half dozen years in
clude tobacco sugar and other planta
tions mines railroads trolley tele
graph and telephone lines etc Secre
tary Taft in his address at Havana uni
versity paid a tribute to the wisdom
of ex President Palma in encouraging
the investment in Cuba of foreign capi
tal The industrial prosperity that this
has brought about has changed the con
dition of the Cuban masses In many
respects The huts and thatched cot
tages In which so
many natives have
lived are giving
place to homes of

The popular belief that storms are
more frequent about the time of the

from the investigations of European

Europe March is the stormiest month
while in the British islands and Nor
