Colonel Kemper has had consider
able experience in recruiting work,
having been connected with that
branch of military work in Chicago
for three years. Major Shipp has

an Instructor of the cadets.
Eight men aer included in the re

had experience in tecruiting work
In this district and have been sent
here from Columbus Barracks, Ohio.
Included on the recruiting staff is
Sergeant R. A. Young, a member of
the recruiting sta in this city until
slightly more than a year ago when
he was commissioned a first lieuten
ant in the Quartermaster Corps. He
was offered a first lieutenant's com
mission in the same branch in the
regular army, but declined it to re
turn to this city to again take up re
cruiting work.
Additional non-commissioned of

He especially desires men holding

and it is now a law.
Yesterday afternoon, in com
pany with Congressman W. \V.
Greist, and Congressman J.
Hampton Moore, 1 visited the
chief of the bureau of engineers,
in the War Department, Brig
adier General llurvey Taylor,
who will have charge of this
work. He informed us that this
work would be placed in charge
of t.'olonel J. P. Gervey, whose
address is in the Old -Federal
building, Wilmington, Del.
General Taylor said that the
assignment would be made in
the very near futuic, possibly in
the course of ten days. 1 would
suggest that as soon as the as
signment is made, that our com
utee get in touch with Colonel
Gervey and furnish him with
such information as we may pos
sess. It is my judgment that Cpl
onel Gervey will receive instruc
tions to go ahead with the sur
vey, which he will unquestion
ably follow.
This I believe is about all we
can do for the time being, except
to furnish such information as
he may desire.
With best wishes, I am.
