Wasiiint.ton, Fob. 15. Tho lone ex
pected culmination of the Wood-Alns-worth
feud In tho War Department aim
thl afternoon. In tliu form of nn order
from Secretary Stlmpon rellevinR Mnjor
fien. Frederick C. Alnsworth of hU duties
as Adjutnnt-dcncrnl of tho army and
directing him to remain in tho city await
ing disciplinary measures.
Orders for tho court-martial of Gen.
Aln&worth. who as Adjutant-General U
the second runking ofllecr in tho army,
are expected to bo Untied within a few
days. Tho charr.o will lio Insubordina
tion, bated on derogatory references to
tho Secretary of War, the Ciller or Staff
and officers of tho General Staff which
Gen. Ainsworth Incorporated Into many
of his official reports.
The announcement made a sensation
in all olTlcial Washington, It is conoid
wed certain' that the Alnsworth wise
will develop into tho biggest milltar'
controversy since the Sampson-Schley
affair in the navy.
Almost simultaneously with the an
nouncement of tho dismissal of Gen.
Ainsworth, who has been u power in the
army 'for thirty -years. Representative
Hobson of Alabama denounced that
officer in a speech delivered on tho floor
of Uio Houso during the consideration
of tho army bill. Representative Hobson
said that Gen.- -Ainsworth .was guilty
or conspiracy In taking part In the fram
ing of 'the Hay bills for tho reorganiza
tion of the military establishment and
inserting in one of them a provision
whereby ho was to be enabled to retlro
with tho rank of Lieutenant-General.
Just previously tho House, by a party
vote, liad passed the second of the Hay
bUls--pTovidlng for a change in the enlist
ment term in the army from three to
Avis years. Tho discussion over this pro
posal, while it was beforo the Military
Affairs Committee, wax marked by tho
opposition 01 President Tart. Secretary
Stlmson and Gen. Wood. Gen. Alns
worth stood practically alone in advo
cating tho plan. It has been repeatedly
charged that Gen. Alnsworth is the mov
ing spirit behind the entire Hay military
programme, which has been stubbornly
opposed by the Administration.
The situation in the War Department
was apparently brought to a head by a
memorandum written by Gen. Ainsworth on
February 3, though called for last Decem
ber on the proposal of the General Staff
to make changes in tho form of tho muster
roll. In this memorandum, called for by
tho Chief of Stall at tho direction of the
Secretary of War, Gen. Alnsworth makes
statements that are construed bv Secre
tary atlmson as an attack on himself and
the.Chief -of Staff and the officers of tho
Whereupon Secretary Stlmson went to
the White House with the matter and
made it an issue with President Taft. The
President was told that either Gen. Ains
worth must go or a new Secretary of War
must bo found. The President immediately
directed that Gen. Ainsworth be re
lieved and held on waiting orders until
disciplinary measures could be decided
upon, It was also dooided that tho Adjutant-General's
office bo turnod over to
Col. H.P. McCain.
In a letter addressed to Gen. Alnsworth
Mr. Stlmson cites the iapsages of the Adjutant-General's
insulting to tho Secretary, Gen. Wood
and other officers, and says:
Tou Impugn tho fairness and Intelligence
of the Secretary or War under whoso, au
thority the proposition In question was sub
mitted to you. You also criticise and Im
pugn the military capacity and experience,
the Intelligence and falrmlncleriness, and
finally question the honor and good faith
of the officers or the General Staff and tho
War College, whose plan you were directed
Secretary Stlmson says farther:
This Is not an Isolated Instance or Insubor
dination and impropriety on your part, nor
Is it made In the absence or warning as to
the necessary eonfequence or such an out
burst. On September 5 laet you submitted
to me a memorandum in which rou by
insinuation charged the Chief or Staff with
Improper motives In his proposed action
of relieving certain officers or the recruiting
service. 1 then, on September IB, wrote
7011 from Huntington, 1,. 1 a personal
Utter of warning In respect to j our conduct
In submitting that memorandum
Secretary Stlmson then quotes from his
former letter. In which he urged upon
Gen. Ainsworth the necessity of the offi
cers of the War Department respecting
the good faith and the motives of other
officers, oven though differing with them
as to judgment. The Secretary then
In considering whether thexe offences
against propriety on your part are merely
exceptional cases or rudoness and ill temper
I And they have become habitual on, your
part and have occurred under other ad
ministrations of the War Department, and
concerning other oflUcrs than those or the
Instances of Gen. AlnsworthV attacks
upon other officers In his official rertn
are cited here. Mr. Stiinson adds:
As I mil myself apparently Included In
your latest attack I h,io preferred to
deem myself diHiiualifled from Judicial an
tlon thereon and have laid tlm matter bo
fore the President os Commander In Chlel.
He directs that pending tho disciplinary
measures to be taken you bo forthwith
rrlleed from duty in ) our office. You will
thernfore upon rcieipt of this order stand
relieved of your dutlex in the ofllin of the
Adjutant-tierinr.d and will nwult furtlisr
orders in tblh city.
When this order hail been made publlo
Oen. AliiHWorili. who was In his olllco, de

He denied himself to nil cullers, his mes

decades ho rose in rank until in loot the
title of Major-General and military sec

built up the present record system of the

in hi dotvirtment he luis been undisputed
for twenty years and lias thwarted nil at

.When Gen. Wood was appointed Chlel
of SlalT It soon became evfdeut that there
never would bo haimony between the
two office holders. They represent op
tiohlte schools of military thought, with
Wood us the progressive and Ainsworth
tho copservntivo. This difference I..
Came accentuated when Gen. Wood 11s
(Hiier of Stall attempted to introduce
reform In the ndministintlon of thn nrmv.
HU plans mt with no sympathy In tli'i
Adjutant Cciicral'H office. Officers of the

Ainsworth warmly advocated them. It

One of the, para toi pi is In Oen, Ain s
worth's momoratidum which U constru ml
py socrotarv Stlmaoti ns referring to him
and which brought on the crlU In the
Alnsworth caso is:
It is recognised that It will be difficult,
11 not impossible, to formulate any state
ment that will carry conviction to any one
wno is so nnmlnuiul or consequence or so
uninformed as to the needs or theOovcrnment
and the public lth regard to the. mutter
In question as to seriously pro pop e to abolish
one or the most Important It not the most
Important or nil the records of the War De
partment. Hon ever, tho sUtemeht Is
submitted in the confident etpettatlon that
when otner It not wiser counsels shall
prevail, mid after experience with the pro
posed plan or any slmllur plan shall have
shown the inevitable evil effects thereof,
this statement will receive the consideration
that may not bo given to It now.
But the adoption of this proposal would
hardly fall to be regarded generally as a
mere subterfuge of n kind that would be
scorned by honorable men In any of the rela
tions of private life una that would be most
discreditable to a great department of the
(lovernment In Its management of the affair
of the nation.
In the same memorandum he says of the
uenerai nuin plan:
It is most inadvisable cv-r to entrust to
Incompetent amateurs tH management ot
business that Is of nattn wide Importance
and that can only be managed prud'iilly.

Renresentntivo Hobson in attacking
Gen. Ainsworth on the floor of tho House
declared that the General had furnished
the Committee on Military Affairs with
misleading information that has resulted
in tho incorporation in the army bill of a
nlan for reorganization of the military
Ihls officer, said Mr Hobson. "has
sat at n desk In Washington for many
years, rising from grade to grade without
performing mllltniy service. He had tho
office of Adiutunt-Oeneral abolished and
then had tho office reestablished when the
time wns opportune; for him to get It."
Mr, Hobson said that Gen. Ainsworth
drow up the Hay, plan of army reorganiza
tion and thatc. this wus another, instance
where the Ueneral had sought to wotk a
scheme through men in Congress with
whom he was on lnendly terms,
thainiun my 01 tno Military Affairs
Committed denied Hobson's charges,
He acknowledged that he had had the
lenellt of Gen Aitisworth's advice, but
denied that the General was the author
of tho proposed army plan of reorgania
tion, Representative Hay allowed that If
Hobson devoted more time to ( on cress
and less to the Chautauqua circlo he would
bo better informed.
Tills deliate Indicates the bitterness that
the Alnsworth incident will undoubtedly
arouse in congress.

Washington, Fob. 15. Publicity men,

reaping a rich harvest in Washington
now Incidentally, thn real estate men
are doing n little business in the rent
ing line, Many college students and some
girls who hjtt their jobs In the reduction
of tho census forco are getting temporary
This gratifying situation Is due to the
large number or Presidential bopm head
quarters opening In Washington in the
last few days; so rapidly do they appear
that one hardly can turn a corner without
being confronted by a banner and other
evidence of -tho boom spirit.
Tito Tnft Imioiii opened last night, in
the Raleigh Hotel. The Roosevelt boom
oenod to-day In tho Munsey office build
ing. The I.a Folletto boom is still at it in
thn F.vnns building, The Harmon boom
bos headquarters in the Ebbltt House. The
Wilson boom opened to-day In the Wlllard
Hotol. The Clark boom has headquarters
in another choice locality mid other booms
are making preparations to open.
A newspuper man who walked three
blocks In Washington declared ho was
offered a job as publicity agent from four
different boom in hU brief Journey.
Medlll McCormlck, who opened the
Roosevelt headquarters, has left for New
York and will go to Chicago to-morrow.
He expects to return to Washington by the
middle of the week.
The Roosevelt progressive ure await
ing tho return from .Vow York of Senator
Clapp, who Is supposed to have had an
Interview with Col. Rooevelt. Since
William l,oeb ha decided not to direct
tho national organization for Roosevelt
the progressives are again turning to
Senator Dixon of Montana. It is be
lieved he will undertake this work if he
can be assured that Col Roosevelt is
willing to enter the tight with earnestness.
One of the interesting pbu-es of the pro
gressive situation discussed here Is a-row
between Gov. Johnson and Senator
La Kollette. The Governor of California
came to Washington to persuade Senator
La Follette that Roosevelt should be
nominated and to point out that the Sen
ator should not obstruct the movement..
Gov. Johnson asked Senator La toilette
to release him, so the story goes, from u
pledge of support which the Governor
had given to the Senator several weeks
Senator I.a Follette declined to release
the California Executive, whereupon
the Governor inrormed the Senatorfrom
Wisconsin tljat he would be put to tho
patnrui necessity or releasing mmseii.
Tills Gov. Johnson will'do, it is said, in a
public declaration of his Intention to sup
port Col. Roooevolt
Roosevelt boomers were considerably
disturbed over the character of the state
ment that Medlil McCormlck gave out
opening the campaign or the Roosevelt

the personal attack made on the Pres

boomers would only keep that up they
would eliminate themselves,
