exterior, but which re-vt tied such
evidences of gruft nnd srnndul its
army olllclals neer dreamed existed.
Hence, the coming activity Tho de
velopments at Sun Krnnclsco follow
ing nn Inspection of the iirmy trans

and scandalous nature that cery ef
fort has been mnda by the War De
partment heads to keep the matter

literally walking on their toes for fear
of drawing tho attention of Con

To offset any Investigation Con
