[Copyright, 1901, by G. L. Eilraer.] O R T Y years ago the coming summer three American fight- ing men who have just been rewarded b y high rank in the regular army were learning the A B C of the military art in the camps in front of Washington, Miles, the Mas- sachusetts vol- unteer lieuten- ,iut of 1801. is now lieutenant general, only civilian soldier ever so hon- ored. Chaffee. an 1861 recruit in the ranks of the Sixth cavalry, and Ran- dall, a private in the infantry, have advanced to the rank of major general and brigadier general respectively. Whatever the personal influence brought to bear in working up these promotions the army and the country must be congratulated on the charac- ter of these three typical American civilian soldiers. Miles has been the target of much sharp criticism the past few years, and it Is all just worth vhile to say that when the fathers of these men who have so spitefully yelp- ed at his heels were piling up wealth on fat civil war contracts he was fight- ing like a tiger arid bleeding like a martyr on the battlefields of Virginia. It is also worth while to note, in vie 1 of some other promotions on the ne - army roster, that Miles fought three years In the hardest battles of the ar- my in 1862, 1SG3 and 1864, including Fair Oaks, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. Wil- derness and Spottsylvauia. before he was given the rank of brisndier gener- 1 of volunteers. As a colonel he com- manded a'brigade one year before the put on his shoulder. So men fought for honor in the sixties. And after the civil war he thrashed the In- dians of half the territories west of the Rockies before reaching the grade of brigadier general in the regulas army, a plum just awarded to Fred Grant for masquerading in the Philippines less than two years, posed as the son of \my father.\ Miles' predecessors in the office of lieutenant general have been Grant, Sherman, Sheridan and Sehofield, and I risk nothing in saying that Miles in the civil war alone pass- ed more days under fire at the head of troops in action and received harder wounds in battle than the whole quar- tet of West Point lieutenant generals put together. Major General Adna R. Chaffee is a rare type of American. Perhaps it is nearest the truth to say that he is a thoroughbred American -without an at- om of foreign mixture or a shred of foreign frills in his whole make up. As boy recruit in 1861 he had all the abandon of the happy go lucky adven- turer who meant to see the world at once thoroughly and satisfactorily.

The moment the first gun was fired the Spaniards were doomed. There was no escape. They were caught In a vise and could only soil life dearly to sat- isfy Spanish pride. But Chaffee was very modest about his work at El Caney. He told, the in- vestigating committee frankly of his iUJOB GENERAL ADNA B. CHAFFKE, U. S. A. mistakes. It turned out that he needed more guns to do the job on schedule time, and he said it was his own fault that no more were on the field. He got all he asked for and asked for as many as he thought would be needed. In person Chaffee is a small, wiry, , w • vigorous, and active young old man, i good for ten years' hard work and, barring accident, will be capabl< the day of his retirement in 1906 of pushing things in an arduous paign. George M. Randall, on the list of new brigadiers, is called the best all round soldier in the United States ar- my today. Like Chaffee, Randall steer- ed clear of the military hotbed in 1861 and enlisted as a private in regular in- fantry. He was three years getting a chance to do what the bumptious vol- unteer of the time wanted to do inside the first 60 days—that is, distinguish himself in battle. The chance came at the storming of the \Crater\ in front of Petersburg July 30, 1864. Randall was then an ajd on the staff of the Ninth corps division which led off in j that disastrous charge. His rank was 'that of lieutenant in the regular army. Major W. H. Powell, another regular, was detailed by the division command- er to go with the troops in the attack, the volunteer staff officers and division commander himself remaining safe in a bombproof in the rear. All the re- sponsible leaders from Grant down were aware that the choice of heading that important charge had fallen by lot upon tbe poorest specimen of a general in the corps. He was a drunkard and was seen that morning before the ex- plosion supporting himself by holding to a sapling as a convenient substitute for the lamppost of his native town. Powell, with the aid of Randall, by making frequent trips under fire from the \Crater\ back to the drunken gen- eral's bomb - proof, directed the attack of three brigades and saved the command from w h o.l esal e slaughter. One regiment, the Fourteenth New York heavy ar- tillery, came out without a field ^ Officer, and SOIIie [Private in regular infantry LIEUTENANT GENERAL NELSON A. MILES, TJ. S. A. [Began a9 a volunteer second lieutenant in 1S61.] evitable shoulder straps the first six iths at the furthest, he chose the ranks of the regular cavalry as the place to go through tbe army mill. In ear's time he was sergeant at the head of a squad and as happy over it as he is over his regular major general- ship today. After the Cuban cam- paign of 1898, when half a dozen gen- erals, including Shatter, had told me that Chaffee was the planner and fight- er of the battle of El Caney and the stars of a major general of volunteers vere glittering fresh upon his shoulder as a reward, he sat down in his tent at Camp Wikoff, becoming loquacious over his exploits as a noncom. in 1SG2. Said he, \I went out with my squad one June morning and smashed a Con- federate outpost in front of Richmond, the biggest thing of my life.\ He re- called the soldiers of different com- mands he had fraternized with there the Chickhhominy, and we chatted about commonplace affairs of the camp and line just as old \townies\ meeting late in life rake up their schoolboy ad- ventures. I had been only a high pri- vate in 1S02. So here was a colonel of the regulars and major general of vol- unteers swapping camp anecdotes with a man of the ranks who had put off his uniform over 30 years before. Sampson has advertised the fact that ie United States navy is a breeding place for snobs, and there is a pop- r notion that regular army garrison •les are just as bad. This last is a mistake. West Point draws the so- •ial line, but West Point hasn't dom- inated the army for the past 20 years. When the commander of the army ooses not to forget that he was once sublieutenant of volunteers and colonels report with pride the days of r service in the ranks, there is danger of snobbery eating the native virility of Uncle Sam's sol- diers. Chaffee is no accident. He made his mark in every grade from sergeant to colonel. As an Indian lighter he had no superior, scarcely an equal, and as ruler of malcontent savages he really mquered turbulence by his fearless, fair and honest administration. \The little white chief is honest and brave,\ said a Pawnee spokesman recalling L'haffee's rule over the tribe. In Cuba Chaffee was the old sergeant >f 1802, the captain of the seventies out rail. He dressed so simply that one day a fresh volunteer threatened to \knock down the little cuss\ who talked so authoritatively, supposing the companies led by in 1861.] noncommissioned officers. Lieutenant Randall pulled the scattered companies of the Fourteenth together, and the drunken general had sense enough, by some one's prompting, no doubt, to as- sign him to the command. The young aid was the junior of the most of the officers, and the Fourteenth at best was a tough proposition for a stranger to tackle. It contained many veteran officers and soldiers and the usual percentage of big bounty tim- ber, chronic kickers at discipline. Ran- dall said: \I know it is a good regi- ment, and I can make It fight. I will too.\ Randall proved as brave as a lion and as tactful and honest in his execu- tive duties as the best trained West Pointer. He carried the Fourteenth up to a high place among the elite 300 fighting regiments of the army. Then as a simple captain of regulars he began all over again on the plains the 30 years of hardship which at 61 puts the silver star of a regular briga- dier on the shoulder where once rested the brass epaulet of the common sol- dier.
