Wisser Answers Tern
fjeneral "Wisser replied yesterday to
Mayor Fern's letter of January 23, In
which he; fecknowledged the difficulties
confronting the mayor in carrying out
the wishes of the department com
mander and adding that he as depart
ment commander has always been ready
to '" cooperate properly and legally''
with the civil authorities, but reiter
ated his unwillingness to use enlisted
men as "stool pigenna".
Mayor Fern replied to this letter
from the general saying he was pleas
ed' to know the commanding officer
real)ed that neither turf community
nor the officiala of the city hnve the
duty or power to enforce United Btatea
laws and regulations and that he, the
general, appreciated the difficulties of
the city under the circumstances.
Winner 'a Letter
General Wisser 's letter datod yester
day addressed to Mayor Forn and sign
ed on the general 'a behalf by Captain
John Smith, Jr., acting department ad
jutant, was as follows:
'The. department commander begs
to acknowledge, the receipt of your
communication of January 23, 1018, '
"He understands fully, from the of
ficial 'reports o his officers, your dif
ficulties in the ipatter.
"'He has been ready at all timea to
cooperate properly with the civil au
thorities,' and, by a circular issued by
order of the' secretary of war, Novem
ber 2, 1917, every1 commanding officer
of this department ia requested to re
port, through the department judge' ad
vocate. a me ir. . district attorney
all violations of Section 12 (relating
tr alcoholic, liquor) of the act of eon
gresa ?t May 18, 19,17.
"Aa above stated, the department
commander has always been ready to
cooperate properly and legally with the
civil authorities, but is not willing to
use enlisted men as stool pigeons (that
is,' the use 'of our most respectable and
reliable enlisted mvn as decoys or in
formers), because that tuke swny the 1
eelf-respect of a good soldier, and in '
tqe opinion or tho department com
mander, is not warranted.
'"'The' department commander lias
simply stated what is, in his opinion,
the only proper and legal course for
him to tuke in the event of failure on
the part of the community to carry out
the President 's proclamation.
"An officer of the Army has been de
tailed to naxist the civil authorities to
obtain evidence, aud he is available
for consultation with you aj any time.
Moreover, the department commander
is ready at any time to discuss with you I
ins enure matter. - ,

muntcaion yesterday, called the geq

sidered a wrong impression concerning
the attitude of the alty officials' towarp
soldiers, particularly as touting .tn era

officiala. The mayor'l, letter, -In fMl,

MeDuffie eiplalned the difficulties en
countered in handling soldier cases"
ia which 'blindnigsM and vice traffic
were problems, inasmuch' a General
Wimier will not permit the pollee to
