Opinl nn were divided at to whether
the Colonel did right or not.
Souio thought the punishment Inflicted

white other again insisted that it would
have a good tlloct in insuring alrlct dis
cipline lu tho future. Others again wore
of opinion that Col, Pcttlt had exceeded
lit authority and that Lis order was un
necessarily htimli. Tin Ari'KAt.' military

to have any well dcllned ideas upon the

"Paragraph 2. Sti;rior are forbidden
to inuru tlioMt miller them by tyrannical
or nipncioiis conduct or abusive language."
Neither of tho nhovo paragraphs apply
directly lo tho ciuw lu hand. Col. I'etiit'a

Paragraph Wl: "Oflicors will not be

question. It says: "Otllcors charged
