Brayton, Clarence E. - Sgt Maj

SOLDIER DIES OF NEGLECT.

Parents of Clarence E. Brayton of the Third New York Will Demand and Investigation.

CAMP MEADE, MIDDLETOWN, Penn., Sept. 20.--Clarence E. Brayton, Sergeant Major of the Third New York Regiment, died today of spinal meningitis at Harrisburg.

Dr. H. S. Hoteling of Syracuse, N. Y., who attended Brayton, says death was caused by neglect. The young soldier was taken sick two weeks ago, and was sent to the division hospital. The surgeons there said he was suffering from quinine poisoning, and that there was nothing else wrong with him. He was removed to Harrisburg, and a few days later taken to the Bolton House.

The military hospital authorities did not notify Brayton's parents until several days after he was taken sick, and they will demand an investigation. The dead soldier's father is W. C. Brayton, General Agent of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad at Syracuse.
