WASHINGTON, Jan. 9. Secretary of the Navy Bonaporte has repriman
ded Commander Luclen Young of the Bennington In a private letter.
When shown the above cablo dispatch this afternoon, Judge George D. )
Gear, who defended Commander I.ucicn Young of the Ill-fated Ucnnlngton,
during the court martial, had the following to lay: "This Is most peculiar.
Tho Idea of Commander Young being reprimanded In a private letter strikes t
me as exceedingly strange. It Is Just postlblo that Secretary of the Navy
Ilonaparte Is attempting to evade the far-reaching effect of a public repri
mand, or what a public reprimand would mean.
"If thercvwns sufficient in the evidnco brought out li. tho court-martial
to warrant a reprimand of Commander Luclen Young, then that ramo i
evidence most assuredly Involved Admiral Goodrich, the Ilureau of Slcam '
Engineering and the Natal Department.
"It Is certainly due the American people to know what Commander
Young Is reprimanded for.
"Admiral Goodrich himself wanted the Itennlngton on the San Francisco
station, knowing well tho condition of her boilers, and yet when overhaul-
Ing wns to bo accomplished, ho recommended to tho department that re
pairs, only such as could bo mado In ten days, be made. The Naval Depart
ment telegraphed orders to this effect A reprimand to Young In this mat
ter Is a reprimand to tho whole department.
"I am watching, with a great deal of curiosity, to learn Just what Younij
has been reprimanded for. This cable dispatch Is Indeed peculiar. The 1
Idea of a reprimand In a privato letter looks queer to say tho least." )
