Army Regulations

WASHINGTON, April 5. – Complaints having been made by the commanders of military posts that movements are impeded and discipline relaxed by the presence of male and female visitors, the Secretary of War has ordered that no passes be granted to visit Fortress Monroe or other military posts to any person not engaged in military service, and has authorized commanders of military posts to remove all persons not engaged in the service.  Passes for the purpose of trade and business are also refused.
