                         ROUMANIA.
                            No. 942.
                    Mr. Fearn to Mr. Bayard.
No. 14.]                LEGATION OF THE UNITED STATES,
               Bucharest, October 4, 1888. (Received November 5.)
  SIR: The military maneuvers of the Roumanian army which have
been going on for several days ended yesterday at Ploesti. By special
invitation of King Charles, who like most of the Hohenzollerns is a
thorough soldier, I accompanied him on horseback and witnessed the
very creditable evolutions of some 15,000 troops of all arms. Some of
the veterans of Plevna, the anniversary of which battle was celebrated
last month with much solemnity, were present, but most of the men
were young peasants, who may return to their more peaceful avocations
at no distant day, it is to be hoped, with improved habits of order and
self-command.
      I have, etc.,
                                              WALKER FEARN.
