Summers, commanding the Second Or
egon volunteers, said:
"Tho government should have pro
yided these tilings for tho returning vol
unteers. Wo are the pioneers of an
army to comu from Manila, and, let mu
tell you, if something is not done it will
be worse hero than It was in Cuba.
Them will 1h hundreds of deaths from
pneumonia. The United States should
turn over to tho hospital and keep on
hand at least 5,000 blankets and 5,000
overcoats. Tlioy will bo needed, and,
as their Ubu will bo only temjwrary, tho
government can have them back again.
If this Ib not dono San Francisco is go

in the tropical ,1'hllipplnoH Is all they
have to protect their bodies from tho
pneumonlu-ladcn fog of tho presidio."
Tho men of Oregon got a taste of San
Francisco wenthcr In July the night be
fore last. Forty men wero left in
charge of tho camp while the others
were being entertained.
Tho fog rolled in upon them in dense
banks, soaking through their tight khaki
suits tothoir skins. General Summers
was busy in tho city nearly all day, but
ho reached camp last evening, shortly
after 0 o'clock. The first thing that
struck his eye was tho number of his
men doing guard duty in their, khaki
Huits. The fog whs then rolling in, and
the trees were heavy witli moisture.
Them wero some people waiting to greet
tho general, but lie overlooked them un
til ho had cared for his mun. He called
"Why have not Uiomj guards their
overcoats on?" he asked.
"They have none," was the answer.
"Well, get them some," said the
general. "Scour the vamp and take
thorn wherever you And them. ' Tho
bovstthoare going to town can afford
to 1)0 without thorn, but thase sentries
must have overcoats or else the guard
must be called in. I willhaye no guard
if I cannot have overcoats on them.
"Scour the camp. Take overcoats
wherever you find them. No sentry
must stand guard without one. II mo
cannot get the overcoats wo will have no
guard at all. We are short of overcoats
and blankets. Now, we am going to in
fringe on the hospitality of California
and see if we can get the loan of what
we need. Failing in that,. I wi 1 make
arrangements with Governor Geer to
buy blanket and overcoats from tho
quartermaster's department, and then
let tho boys turn them in to the state of
Oregon, receiving the money they havo
paid for thorn."
Tho Oregon mon shiver while thou
sands of coats and blankets nro piled
high in tho quartermaster's department
at tho Presidio. Only half tho men havo
sufficient coata and blankets; the other
half stand the cold Jas best they can.
Tho Oregon boys have stoves in tho
tents, but that only increases tho dan
ger unless tho men have protection out
