GEN. ALGER REVIEWS
ARMY BEEF SCANDAL
Says Miles Liked the Publicity He
SoughtHis Allegations Not
Based on Facts-Praises
New York, Dec, 29. In his article
In tho North American Review, on
"Tho Food of tho Army during the
Spanish War,' Gen. Alger takes dp
Gen. Miles' testimony before the
Dodge commission on December 21,
1S98, relative to u.e beef furnished to
the army nnd says:
"Although the commission hnd been
sitting nearly three months, the char
ges with respect to canned nnd refri
gerated beef were now mado for tho
first tlmc-i nnd, stranger nnd moro In
excusable nnd more misoldierly still,
ilnrlnir nil tliogn months, with this lire-
tended knowledgo of facts, which, If '
they existed, should have been made J
known to tho Secretary of War for
the protection of tlio army, tion. allies
never mentioned tho Biiblect. Nor did
I over hear a rumor of chemically
treated beef being purchased for th
army until tho genornl's testimony
wns given before the commission.
"Tho allegations that unsuitable
food, not n part of the legal ration,
had been furnished to the nrmy under
pretense of nn experiment, nnd that
refrlgcrnted beef, treated with poison
ous chemicals, hnd been and wns be
ing supplied to our nrmy of 275000
men, were indeed serious. Implying
ns they did, criminal Incompetence
on tho pait of .io commissary depart
ment. If not wilful negligence nnd dis
honesty. "Upon Commlssnry-Oenernl Charles
I Eagnn tho charges fell with tho
suddenness nnd shnrpness of n blnv
from nn nssassln's knlfo out of the
dark. Oencrnl Engan had been nn
oTlcer of tho regular nrmy for thirty-
six years. Ho hnd risen from n sec
ond lieutenancy to the highest rank In
tho commlssnry department to which
his ambition could aspire. Gallant nnd
fearless on tho battlefields of tho civil
wnr nnd tho hostile Indian plains of
tho west he bad a record for soldierly
qunlltles of which nny officer might
well bo proud. With energy, honesty
and zeal, ho hnd ndmlnlstcred his de
partment during the war with Spain,
n fitting climax to n long nnd honor
nble career In the service of his coun
try." General Alger payg n high tribute
to tho energy nnd fidelity of Genera
Eagnn, saying ho was almost prostrat
ed from overwork, ho adds:
"Tho charges of General Mllon,
made so publicly and bo positively,
nnd tho manner In which they wero
for the first time mado known, seemed
to Gcnernl Eagnn, In his nervous con
dition, tho more magnified and horri
ble. Upon hearing them ho pitifully
exclaimed: "Gcnernl Miles has cruci
fied mo upon a cross of falsehood and
"General Eagan had already been
examined by tho Wnr Investigation
Commission when Gcnernl Miles' hear
ing occurred, but when tho testimony
of tho latter appeared in tho news
papers Gcnernl Eagan Immediately re
quested n re-hearlng.
"General Eagan read his reply to
tho War Investigation Commission
from a carefully prepared typewrit
ten mnnuscrlpt. Lashed to the quick
by tho allegations contained In Gen
eral Miles' testimony and in his sub
sequent Interview which nppeared on
December 23d In a Now York paper,
his indignation exceeded tho limits of
his Bclf-control and in his efforts to
deny the charges made, his language
becamo vituperative, extravagant and
highly Improper. I believe that had
General Eagan's hcaltn not been se
riously impaired by overwork and
anxiety, tho two objectlonablo para
graphsof 300 words out of on aggre
gate of 2,000 words contained in his
reply would never havo been writ
ten or uttered.
"Even yet, divested of Its offensive
adjectives In tho two paragraphs re
ferred to, his reply to General Miles
remains unanswerable In Its doglc
and Incontrovertablo in its facts. Tho
allegation that I had Inspired or had
any knowledge of Gcnernl Eagan'a at
tack upon tho statement of General
Miles Is absolutely untrue. Ho did not
ninko known to mo the nature of his
proposed nnswer to tho charges. Had
General Eagan submitted his mnnu
scrlpt to mo ho would undoubtedly Pt
this writing stl.i bo In full possession
of tho rank nnd privileges of tho of
flco of CommlsBnry-aenernl of tho
United States Army."
General Alger tells of upbraiding
General Eagan for s lll-advlsod ut
terances nnd says:
"His court-martial was not tho nut
como of Oenernl Miles' charges, but
tho result of Intempernto and uninll
Itarv Inngungo conceived In nn Indig
nation pnrdonnble, porlmps, in Its ex
istence, but unpardlnnblo n Its mode
ucneral Miles seemed to bo pleas
ed wltli tho notoriety which his start
ling statements heforo tho commission
and In liln subsequent newspaper In
terview gnvo him, for again on tho
31st of March, 1S99, In New Yoik
Cltv, ho published nddltlonnl charges.
This Interview, which appeared on tho
morning of Fobrunry 1st. General
Miles was called upon to deny under
oath, and as ho was unable to do so
pnrt of his statements In it wero used
by tho couit of Inquiry as a basis for
General Alger then treats General
Miles' allegations specifically and In
detail, reviewing tho evldenco brought
out by tho Investigation and declar
ing thnt tho allegations wore entirely
In conclusion, General Alger says:
"Tho nrmy had won Its baulcs In Cu

Miles wcro not based upon (nets, and
were conclusively disproved by two
separate tribunals, unlmpeachablo In
their composition and methods of In
vestigation, the irreparable damage
had been done. A brave, honest nnd
faithful officer, suffering under tho
lash of cruel, unwarranted and unjuiv
