today gave orders that bereafter the names
of enlisted men of the stiny who dls In

unteer army was la the archipelago it
was the custom to cable 'hs casualties,
but on ths withdrawal ! I bat army ths
practice waa discontinued.
Ths subject waa dlncussed while the pres
ident was entertaining a number ot vis
itors at luncheon today. Amnng those who
sst at bis table were: Valor Generals
H. C. Corbin and 8. M B. Young, Henry

Philadelphia, son of Bishop Warren of ths

cer of Nebraska. Tbe suMnct of cabling
tbe names of the dead soldiers was
broached by Mr. Rlls., He mads ths point
that under the present system tho rela
tives of enlisted men who ;. la the Philip
pines are kept In ignorance vt this fact for
eight or ten weeks, while the families of
officers who' succumb are informed at once.
The president was greatly interested in ths
matter, and as soon as it was explained to
him ordered General Corbta to Instruct
Oeneral Chaffee at Manila to cable bis full
casualty list twice a month. Whlls it coats
on an average of tl.oO to uaoIm news to this
country of tbe death of an oQcer In the
Philippines, It costs sbor.t fO for each en

fact that the War dernrtmrnt has code
