The following letler was written by
Fred Hargreaves to Judge William Gal
loway: Manilla, P. I. Sep. 8th, 1890. My
Dear Friend: Since last writing you
wonderful changes have taken place
over here at Manilla, as you are proba
bly aware of. It is needless for one to
enumerate the different events that
have recently taken place on this far-away
shore, for you undoubted know as
much about them as I. Now, that the
cable is connected, you will receive reg
ular reports from here.
Manilla, like Portland and Oregon
City by the Willamette, is cut into by
the Pasier river. One division is called
old Manilla, while the other is called
The Second Oreuon is now stationed
in old Manilla. Company F, General
Merritt's body guard, is at the palace,
while the remainder of us are nt-ar-by.
e have as good o.uarters as any of tne
Lighth Army Corps. Every man has a
hammock which can be swung outside
under the trees ; also a cot inside, on
which we keep our load of soldier's par-
apnernaiia. n seems to tie more un
j healthy turethan at Cavite, and -we
" have had considerable sickness lately.
I But there seems to be an improvement
now in this respect.
KranK Weed has just recovered from
a siege of sickness. I have been very
, fortunate in this respect. I never feit
mucn better than 1 have since coming
to Manilla, and feel confident- tli:t I
can maintain (iood health under the cir
cumstances. Mr. Poindexter, also, has
enjoyed perfect health.
In my last letter. I asked for the
names of your relatives in the Idaho
regiment; but since then I have suc
ceeded in finding them without the
names. The quarters of tho Idaho boys
and the 14th regulars are adjoining. I
found your nephew without any dilli-
cuiiy, and was more than pleased to
meet him, I assure you. We enjoyed a
good long talk together over the good
old times across the broad Pacific
about ihe "land of milk and honey."
After dinner we went over to Company
H's quarters, and found Mr. Benedict,
who, also, was very glad to meet a
friend of your's 7,000 miles away. I
expect them over one of these days, as
they ate acquainted with several others
of our regiment besides Mr. Weed and
myself. Like the rest of us they are
very anxious to return to the United1
Manilla is not the city that I ex
pected to find. We imagined that it
would compare with San Francisco.
It is probably as large in size, but in
the quality of a city, it fails to come up
to the standard of Oregon Oity. There
is only four or five blocks that will com
pare with the principal streets of Port
land, the city generally having the ap
pearance of China town, with its little
Philipino shops. Their best streets are
built of flag stones, and these are very
scatce. Street cars of the poorest grade
are drawn by mules and horses. The
fares are very low, probably made to
correspond with speed. The principal
street contains a few ordinary-sized
stores and little else. Among them are
some of the larcest and most costlv 1ow-
elry establishments that I ever saw, but
tne jewelry is very high in price. Silk
good are about all that can be called
cheap. The hoys will bring home about
all they can carrv. Tomorrow is pay
day, after which I expect to fill a valise
ol silks myself. Ours is the Bwell regi
mentnow, as we have been issued uni
forms that are white from the helmets
any regiment here. He does everything
possible for us, looks after the mail and
library, and plays baseball with us.
None of the boys from Oregon City
are sick except Gantenbeim and I, and
I can't saj that I'm sick.

Following are extracts from a letler
written by A. E. Howell, a private in
Company I, to relatives here:
Every time 1 sit down to write to you
1 wonder when that cablegram is com
ing to notify the troops to come home
frm Manilla, but I don t suppose it
will be over a hundred years.
The retort was current mght-before
last lhat France, Germany and Eng
land had assumed the war debt, and
that a dispatch boat had been sent out
alter General Memtt to take him bai
to the United states. The news was
also circulated that we would be sent
home in about 15 days, but yesterday
the insurgents killed three ol the four
teenth boys, and we now have outpost
guards every night. The other night
one of the boys from our Company and
a corporal, killed two Spaniards. They
were trying to get in the San Francisco
church ro steal some commissary goods
The boys started to arrest them, but
they showed tight, ana, 01 course, our
boys had to shoot to protect themselves

but thry are anxious to see the depart
ment improved. The majority of the
member complain bitterly, when the
fact is brought out tb.it they are to be
denied the right of suffrage. The fire
men assert that they have done good
work, and point with pride to their
record, and look upon it as a hard deal,
not to have a say as to who shall be
their chief engineer.
A few of the firemen, however, assert
that the ordinance is the proper thing,
among them John F. Clark, ex-assistant
The minority ot the business men
spoken to, that thev had not studied
the matter much, and while appreciat
ing the work 01 the hreinen, believed
in endorsing tho efforts of the mayor
nd council in improving the status of
the lire department.
Mayor Cauliold has the following to
say in reference to the new ordinance:
Our city charter says that "the
council shall have power to make all
needful regulations for the prevention
and extinu uUhment of fires and for the
preservation of pioperty exposed to dan
ger in time of fire, and to appoint all
officers required for such purposes and
to establish and maintain a fire de
Under tho present ordinances the
city has no practical control of ihe fire
department, nor any Knowieuge, or
way of getting knowledge concerning
its needs or requirements. The pres
ent ordinance concerning the depart
ment does not give the council power
to comnel a chief engineer to file his
egular reports with that body, so mat
they can have an intelligent idea as to
the condition ot tne nose, apparatus
etc.. and as to the needs ot the de-
nartment so that efficient work can be
one. Ihe growth 01 tne town ana
increase in mills and vaiuaoie prop
erty, make it absolutely necessary that
our hre department De under tne con
trol of a competent and practical fire
man at all times.
This not a question of sentiment,
hut. a nrncticdl misl ion for the PrO'
teciion of valuable property. The best
means to bring this about is what all
firemen and citizens should desire
The right to elect a chief engineer is
not a prerogative for which they
should contend so strong, each and ev
ery fireman joins the department not
for fun, but from a sense 01 amy to
protect the property he owns or the
property that furnishes him a living.
If a change of system of electing a
chief engineer should bring about bet
ter fire protection the firemen should
be satified. Personally, I do not ques
tion the result of our new ordinance
it should become a law. The main
idea of the same is to place the con
trol of the fire department in the hands
of a board of fire commissioners, to be
composed of the mayor, recorder and
committee 01 nre ana water 01 uie
council. The chief engineer and as
sistant to be directly under their con
trol and lo report to them, it win oe
the duty of the board of fire commis
sioners through the chief engineer to
know at all times the actual condition
of the department and its requirements,
and in this way can intelligently recom
mend to the council the purchase 01 new
hose, apparatus, or repair of the same
The chief engineer and assistanten-
gtneer to be elected ly the council and
to be responsible to them for the condi
tion of the fire department, and to be
subject to removal by that body for cause.
The chief engineer to receive a salary
of $10 per month for which he is to per
form certain specified duties.
The new ordinance noes not attect the
right of each company to have its own
organization and eleet its own officers,
but simple places the control of the de
partment on a whole in the
hands of the council, f-om wnom its
source of support must come I think
the firemen in fairness should concede
this. I am In favor of liberal treatment
of the department and think that tho
men who give their time f r the protec
tionof the city should be provided with
the verv best of apparatus and appliances
and that it should be some ones duty to
see that it is stall times ready (or service.
