A WAR NCAXUAL.
Tho controversy between Gen
eral Miles and Commissary Gen
eral Eagan bids fair to lead to a
thorough airing of the ins nod outs
of the commissary department
work during the lato war. Eagan
in Ids firi-t statement before tho
investigating commission called
Miles a blackguard and a liar for
intimating that the supplies fur
nished by Eagan's department
wereo'her than first class in every
As the commissary department
is usually thecenter of corruption,
if corruption oxitts, in army life
it is not surprising that tho Com
missary Geueral should consider
tho inferences made by th com
rounding general as decidedly se
rious. Eagan, however, has lost
what pnhlio sympathy he might
have by tho fierce nnd improper
character of his defense which is
practically a return attack. Ho
has overstepped all tho bounds re
cognized in the term "a gentle
man and a soldior," nnd evidently
outriders that the reputation of
the canned corned beef producers
of tho United States is of more
valuo than his standing in the
United Htutes army. A scandal
of no email importance is set on
foot at all evonls. , Either Eagan
will bo proved culpably incompe
tent or General Miles will stand
before the public as a man who

John liussel Young, nows of
whoso death is oxclusivoly an
nounced in tho Bulletin, was n
mntked example-of tho "self mado"
Americans in tho field of litera
ture. After getting the piolitni
nary education of tho common
schools, Young statod out in the
school of tho world ns copy boy
on a Philadelphia daily. He
worked his way up tho various
rounds of the repoi torial ladder un
til 180l,when J. Forney appointed
Secretary of tho United States
Senate, took him to Washington
as private secretary. Ho kept up
his newspaper writing, and made
his first hit as a war corroepon
dent by his graphic description of
the battle of Bull Bun. Aftor tho
war, ho was managing editor of
tho Philadelphia Press and lBtor
tho New York Tribune. During
Grant's administration ho was
sent nbrond to study fiuaucial
matters for tho government, nnd
accompanied Grant in his tour
around tho world. President Ar
thur nppointod him United Stated
Minister to China, nnd whon
Cleveland displaced him, Yonug
devoted himself to privato literary

The marked ability shown by
Mr. Young in installing tho new
Congressional librnry is tho work
by which ho is most widely known
and will givo him a prominent
placo in history. His wholo careor
is nu ovidonco that push, tact nnd
principle can surmount tho diffi
