Lieutenant W. A. Huntley, of Co. I,
Hucond Oregon Volunteer Infantry, ar
rived home from Manila Wednesday
morning on two month' nick leave. The
nterprlse reporter found him a rather
well-looking alck man, but soon learned
at 30 of the pound avolrdupola which
carries wa gained since he left the
lospltal 40 da a ago, he weighing then
nit I'JS ound.
The flmt question naturally wa "How
are all the Oregon City hove?"
I left every Oregon City boy in good
health, with the exception of one or two
who had some trivial ailments, not
aevere enough to keep them from in
forming daily duty, and all of them In
"To what do you attribute the fact
that while all of the other companiea of
the regiment have hail death from
disease, company I ha not lont a man?"
"I attribute It to the fact that company
contained physically and morally, a
better lot of men than any other com
puny in the regiment. The company as
whole swallowed the bitter pills that
fall to th lot of every soldier (and there
were not a few of them) with a grin and
loke, instead of a scowl and a curse
They had the nigral courage to abstain
from the excess, so common to soldiers,
nd when disease came (and we hd our
hare) were able to flfht it with unlm
ttalred etreimlh. Such pjvial lellowl as
Campbell, N orris, Logua.Cornfleld Hard

gether wiih others I do not now recall,
iclp wondei fully to keep tlieiu from
thinking ol their troubles. Then there
Moflalt, Finley, Polndexter, Smith,
Htellmtclier and Oambar, who are
always looking out for the unlucky one
who are laid up In quarters"
'What is your opinion Mr. Huntley
about sickness? Will there he more or
less than In the past?"
"Lras. by all means. We have better
quartera, better food and more ex perl
ence in cooking and handing It to that
savings' can now be made and articles
of food outside the regular diet can be
purchased. The hospital are now in
good condition with plenty of nurses,
medicines and food for invalids. Then
too, the very beet end healthiest season
of the year is at band which will give
those who are run down a chance to
get on their feet again."
The reporter then reminded the Lieu-
tenant of the nasty letters that had been
written rrgarding the handling of the
emergency funds" placed in the hands
of the different captain for the use of
the men and asked what basla there was
(or such claima.
No basia whatever for the charge
that any funds were gambled away or
misappropriated ; it would result in the
court-martial and dishonorable dis
charge of any ofllcer so doing, and you
may e sure that it would be easily snd
quickly discovered, for every captain
baa to make an Itemised account ol the
expenditures of this fund to the colonel
of the regiment. Rut aside from that, I
know personally every captain in the
Oregon regiment and their honor Iz such
matters is above question. I also know
that the.ro is no gambling among the
ofllcers of the regiment. At to the
method ol disbursing the $100 fund, Idess
(lifter. Koine of the men (the ones who
wrote the letters referred, to) I fancy
think tha amount should have been at
once divided among me u memoers,
giving each one the vat sum of $1 .25 for
emervencie. How far such an amount
would go in an emergency and whether
It would be ready to go when wanted,
you can ludne for yourself."
"Our captain's Idea was that this money
could be used most effectively In caring
for the sick j that Is, in buy Inn necessary
food and nourishment that the hospital
would not supply. His idea is health
lirst. What if a mnn did lack something

fund could be used to buy things for
