New YoiiK, June 25. The Tribune pub
lished a long letter from the Hon. William
E. Chandler, ex-Secretoxy of the Navy, re
viewing the letter of Secretary of the Navy
Whitney to the Attorney General, asking
for an opinion In regantto Ulo proper catirse
for him to pursue In the matter of accept
ance or rejection of the dispatch boat Dol
phin. The latter charges that the present
Secretary ot tho Navy while closing the
mouths ot the Naval Advisory Hoard In
making the Dolphin matter a pretext to
cast a slur upon the management ot the
Nnval Department under his (Chandler's)
management for political punoses. He
ntl'tdrs several times satirically to Mr.
Whitney's supposed fear lest he bo gov
erned by a
"snnrr or nr.sr.NTMENT"
In tho case. He says: "Mr. Whltn?y has
already, In his acknowledged 'spirit of re
sentment,' prejudiced somebody. The At
torney General can only say which Is the
criminal, Mr. Roaeh or tbo designers of the
Dolphin, one or the oilier, the Attorney
General must certainly Join Mr. Whitney In
condemning if he answers his letter." Mr.
Chandtoradds: "It Is as clear as tho sun
at noonday that Mr. Roach Is responsible
only for good workmanship. The law of
Aucirst 5. 1882. authorizing certain ships
and creating the naval advisory board pro
vided that neither of tlw vessels should be
'contracted for or commenced until full and
complete detail drawings and specifications,
therefor In alt Its parts. Including tho
hull, engines and boilers shall havo
been provided or adopted by the Navy
Department and shall have been approved
In writing by said board or by a majority ot
the members thereof, and by the navy.'
This provision of law war compiled with,
and Mr. Roach bid uon tho designs of the
XavyDepartment, and Justly and properly
wascompelled to guarantee only good work
manship, lie guaranteed neither speed,
horse power nor anything else, excopt that
tho materials should bo first-class and of
the very best quality, and well faith
fully put together according to the plans and
specifications of the department, and under
tbo Inspection and supervision of the Naval
Advlsry Hoard. There Is no 'looseness of
the contract' nor 'absence of effectual stipu
lation,' as Mr. Whitney asserts, but all the
provisions are to be found necessary to
CAItllV OtT THE FUNDAMENTAL IDEA
upon which the contract wss based, namely,
good work on Mr. Roach's part applied to
tne department's designs. If, therefore, the
contractor has built the ship according to
the specifications ot the contract be has ful
filled his engagements." Farther on, Mr.
Clundler says: "In other words Mr. Whit
ney Is hunting the Secretary of the Navy
and the advisory board who designed tho
Dolphin and made the contract for her con
struction. His persecution of Mr. Roaeh,
however deadly, Is merely Incidental. Ills
'spirit of resentment' is directed mainly
against his predecessor In office and the ad
visory beard. The latter can not speak a
word of defense eicept to Sir. Whitney,
nor make any utterance public without his
consent The fonner, however, cam" Mr.
Chandler proceeds by saying that while
on her trial the Dolphin mado fifteen knots
an hour that nor any ottle r definite epced
was required In order for the vessel to fulfill
the specifications, and that the vibrations
were to bo expected with the vessel going at
top speed, lie refers to the hr;h character
ot the Nayal Roard as worth something In
considering the question, and adds: "The
course pursued by Mr. Whitney to demon
strate his preconceived determination that
tho Dolphin should proveafalluruls wholly
without foundation in cither law, contract
or common sense. It was never contem
plated by any human being that the Dol

port by Professor Wiley, chemist ot the d
partment, upon the sugar Industry of the
United States, comprising statistics ot cane,
beet, sorghnm and maplo sugars. Somn
Idea of the salueof sugar of all kinds used
in the United States may be formed when
.t is considered that a fair estimate of the.
total cost to consumers places the sum nt
$250,131,330. Tho duty paid by consumers for
both sugar and molasses is about SSS.05 per
capita, and the amount of sugar used per
her head Is about fifty-six pounds. The re

lactiiresugar from sorghum In Kansas and
elsewhere. While the amount manufactured
duriug tho post J ear aggregate 1,000,000
pouiwi, yet the cost ot production was so
groat the enterprises entailed heavy losses
almost everywhere Referring to the
Hutchinson, Kan., sugar works, Mr.
Decker observes: "litis factory was
built and operated by a learn
ed chemist, having high scholarly attain
ments, and his calculations gave the exact
(.mount ot sugar that wonld be produced.
Rut his calculations were at fault some
where, tor the season closed without devel
oping a single pound ot sugar. Tlio next
season, 18S3, the sctvlce of Pmf. Man
gus Swenson, ot the Wisconsin University,
was secured as Superintendent The re
sult of 1he season's work was 3,000,000
pounds ot sugar. This waa lieraldcd by
Kansas speculators as tbo solution ot tho
sugar question, but the fads wero that the
cost of production was far in advance of
tho amount received for tho sugar, and the
company became bankrupt The
property not being suitable for other
purposes, another effort was de
cided upon, and IVofessor Swenson placed
In the position ot Superintendent for the
season ot 1834. That season has now
passed, and the result shows 330,000 pounds
of sugar, but again at a heavy loss lu the

gay with beauty. At eleven o'clock the
signal gun for starling tho procession fired,
and the great lino moved forward without
confusion. Not nntll tho procession had

how great the number of Gratrd Army

Alter tho end of the procession had passed

for General Ixgan, who was obliged to
respond briefly, referring merely to the
bcihXrs of the G. A. R. gatherings. In the
eveniilg a reception was tendered Commander-ln
Chief Kountz, as representative of tbo
