"PETER DOl GLASS."
Story of the Origin of an Army Term
Mraalag a. Dead Maa.
"In garrison life 'Peter Douglass' means
a dead man that is, officially, not really
dead," observed an army officer, quoted by
the Washington Star. "It had Its origin at
Fort Monro a quarter of a century or more
ago, though there are a number of officers
who knew the original Fete and quit a
number mora who knew the facts In regard
to hla case.
"One of the lending officers of the artil
lery service today, then a lieutenant, was
sent from Governors Island, In New York
harbor, to Fort Monroe with a datachmsnt
of nlnetesn soldiers. They cams down by
sea, and the first night out th soldier got
on to a barrel of fin whisky which was In
the hold, and by the aid of a gimlet and
some straws th most of th nineteen men
were In a very bilarloua condition before
midnight. On the second night out some of
tham tackled ths barrel again and In a
short time they were again Intoxicated.
Among th number was Peter Douglas.
When th time came for them to land at
Fort Monroe Peter Douglass could not ba
found. It wa generally thought ho bad
fallen overboard. Anyhow, th lieutenant
turned over but eighteen men. H re
ported Peter Douglasa aa having been
drowned, and the record waa made accord
ingly, Three day afterward, when th
ahlp that brought the party down waa un
loading soma freight at Charlaaton, S. C.
Petsr Douglsaa crawled out of the hold
looking somewhat th wort for hi ex
perience. After bracing up h managed to
work hi way up to Fort Monro, where he
aupposed he would Join hi company, but
on presenting himself to ths officer In com
mand there he wa told that a th record
there had ahown that Peter Douglasa had
been drowned they wer required to con
sider him dead, even If he wer not dead
"Douglasa admitted that he waa pretty
nearly dead, but that he had managed to
pull through. . Anyhow, he was not ad
m It ted to the quarters at tba garrison, and
was told that ha bad batter move along;
that ha waa out of the army as surely as
hs had ever been In it.
"But Peter did not go far away. That
evening hs met some of his comrade, three
In number, from Governor's Island, aad
they celebrated hla coming to life In true
oldlerly manner. The celebration wound
up In the guardhouse there, aa did th eel-
brstors. Th record of the guardbouae
showed that, though Peter Douglasa bad

the namea of th four wer sent to ths of

dlaorderly conduct and other violation of
th law of th garrison. The officer, who
waa a atrong advocate of the power of roc
ord, ruled that aa Peter Douglass had sever
entered the garrison, h could not bo court
l&artlalsd, aad that, U fast. rtr Douglas
waa dead beyond resurrection. He waa,
therefore, turned out and again told to
move on, but, a he did not realise that he
was dead, he did not do so. ,
"He hung around the garrison for some
time, but finally wandered away and got
back to New York. Officially he baa re
mained dead ever since, for the record has
never been changed. The officers preferred
to let blm remain dead and get him out of
the army In that way than to try and re
form him by ccurt-martlal, for he seemed
to be beyond reform."

of money In the west, and considering the
lurge Increase in the domestic production
of gold the shipment of a few millions to
Europe should cause no real concern. There
Is fair reason to hope that in spite of oc
casional signs of reaction we shall have
another year of prosperity. Consumption
of ail kinds of manufactured products is
still going on at an unprecedented scale,
and high prices do not yet seem to have
checked demand. Railroad earnings con
tinue to show liberal gains over the phe
nomenal returns of last year, and if the
harvest of 1W2 should prove to be an aver
age one aeneral buslnesa Is likely to con
tinue on a liberal scale. While the winter
wheat cron report shows a considerable
Kderllne In condition. comDared with Decem
ber, the indications are stin ror a gooa
sized crop. Very likely the first real set
back will come In Wall street, which will
be the first to feel the effects of overdoing,
nnd the first to anticipate any reaction. It
Is perfectly true, however, to say that Wall
street does not feel any apprehensions on
that score; on the contrary, there la a feel
ins of reasonable optimism In the street.
which is quite likely to be reflected in a
higher range of prices. As we have said
before, good Investments are exceedingly
scarce and there Is plenty of money to
Invest, so that while prices are high it is
impossible to say they cannot go higher
under favorable conditions. The market
has had fully six months of rest, during
which tne weak spots nave been pretty
well eliminated, and leaal uncertainties af
fecting the merger deals are not likely to
receive much attention for some time to
come. With good crops there would be
little wanting just now to give us a better
market than confident leadership. Whether
that will be forthcoming or not remalna to
DROWSY WEEK ON THE BOURSE
Trade la Qnlet and Spectacular Move
ment Unknown Quan
tity. BERLIN, April 13. The past week on the
bourse was quiet and uneventful. The first
half of the week showed declining values
In all departments, but an Improvement be
gan Friday, with the more favorable pros
pects of peace In South Africa, which the
Berlin market judges very optimistically.
Nevertheless, it maintains a waiting atti
tude until definite news is received.
Irons and allied shares dropped generally
until Thursday an a result of the bad an
nual reports of a number of companies, but
the American market report brought a
slight Improvement and this waa lncreaaed
by the meeting in Berlin for the purpose of
orKHmzing a general syndicate or roiling
mill representatives. At this meeting the
iron situation was reported to be better
innn tne marKet anticipated.
The threatened coal strike In Belgium
strengthened coal shares. The dividend of
12 per cent declared by Ludwlg, Loewe &
Co., as against dividends of 24 per cent for
tne last nve years, was regarded as very
disappointing and depressed the machinery
section of the market.
Electrical shares were also lower upon
favorable reoorts In the industry, few nr.
ders and the unsatisfactory conditions of
several eeictrieai companies. The Issues of
new canltal by the Hamburg-American
Steam Packet company and the North Ger
man Lloyd line continue to depress the
shares of these companies. Transvaal
railway sharea were bought on rising mar
ket for Holland.
The ease of money haa grown more pro
nounced and It is reported that the Relchs
bank Intenda t buy dltcounta In tha nrnv.
Inces at a private rate. Th foreign rates
01 exenange were strong. Exchange on
Paris reached the gold point, whll t
exchange almost reached that point. The
rise in exchange vas due to remittances
unon the Russian loan, which otherwise
did not affect the money market.
Domestic 3 per cents barely held their
own, but the banka did a brisk business at
high rates In all the new 4 per cent loans,
which are about to be Issued In many
municipalities. Call money fell from 3 to 2
per cenf during the week and the private
rate 01 aiscouni was easier.
