Havana Dcccmbor S via Key West Fla.
Havana was last night perilously near wit
nessing another of thoso political convul-
At tho outset tho maximum capacity of tha
division hoapltnl was 250 beds out tins ca-
pacity was quickly foitud far Inadequate. Ho
could not recollect whether tho calif sur-
geon of Camp Tnomas hnd reported that tho
sanitation thero was bad. The department
xkw ho said has aiapla evidence that ty-
phoid cases during the war wero larscly mis-
taken for malarial fover until tho eases
reached tho divisional hospitals and that ma-
laria also had Been alsguosed ns typhoid.
General Sternberg's recollection was mat
prior to tho inspection tour which nus made
of tho camps by Secretary Alger Quarter-
master General Ludiugton and himself tha
information In his hands of unsanitary condi
tions at. camp Thomas was unotilcl.il. lit
said tbat at the tlmo it was practicable to
secure a fairly large number of nurees but
their training took tlmo and he admitted in
wnr times might bo at tho expense ol tho pa-
tltuts. Tho acknowledged the services of vol-
unteer aid associations and said the trained
female nurses wero unsatisfactory though he
hnu received somo reports to the contrary.
AVltuess admitted a real deficiency lu med-
ical Bundles at times. At Santiago the land-
ins was delayed owing to exlRcncies or tut
times and tho railroads fulled to get them
thiongh In tlmo at otlicv points lie contend-
ed however that thero had been very llttlo
lack of medical supplies during tho war trie
Kroat difficulty helni; that surgeons frequent-
ly preferred othee than the "Held supply" and
an unanticipated typhoid fover outbreak had
also considerably taxed the field resources.
Purchases however had been made largely
from hand to mouth due to lack of .storage
facilities aud lack of tlmo for calling tor
There was an animated discussion over a
delay In outflttWg tho John English which
was puichasod May IS. as a hospital ship.
General Sternberg said after her purchase
thero wns a lapse or three weeks during
which timo no work had been done. She sailed
or. tho date of tho battle of Santiago nnd haa
Bho sailed flvo days sooner tho medical sup-
piles at the battleground would have been
ample. Tbo witness refused to say the de-
lay was unnecessary or on whom -tho' rc-
siioiiflblllty should rest.
Surgeon General Sternberg concerning the
relative merits of division and regimental
hespitals. said that while experience had
taught a good deal the theories ot tho do-
rattment us to tho medical administration
wire torn In May.
Aitordtng to the history of the Santiago
movement General Sternberg explained thai
