Thkkh is not a corporation iu Akron
that makes a rule of carrying upon
its pay roll men whose services it
does not need. Following this good
business example, Akron's Council
may be depended upon to do away
with all oillces that are a needless
charge upon the pay roll. But ofli
ces that are essential to giving the
citizens good and sullicient public
service in exchange for the taxes
they pay,will not be done away

The success of a city administra
tion is measured not so much by its
ability to save the taxpayers a few
cents by reducing the wages of deserv

which it protects the rights, to which
its constituents are entitled as citi
zens. Not until a Democratic adminis
tration came into power in Akron
was any attempt made to prevent
the giving ji way of the city's valuable
rights to privilege-seeking corpora

Washington". May 8. By direction
of the president, who approved the Hud
"tugs, Acting Secretary of War Meiklo
john made public the reiort and find
ings of "the military court appointed to
investigate the charges, made by Major
General Miles, commanding the army,
that the beef supplied to the army dur
ing the -war with Spain was nuiit for
the, use of the troops.
The conclusion of the court adverse
to further iiroceedings based upon t!ie
charges is as follows:
'"It lias been developed in the course
of the inquiry as recited in this report,
that in some instances certain individ
uals failed to perform the full measure
of duty or to observe tile proprieties
which dignify high military command,
but the court'is of the opinion that the
mere .-tatement in the official report of
the facts dcvclojied meets the ends of
discipline, ami that the interests of the
service will be beat subserved if further
proceedinjts be not taken."'
There is mure or les criticism of
General Miles iu various parts of the re
port. Probably the most direct instance
is the one which states that beyond the
criticism of ofticers found elsewhere is
"The court lmds that airamst none of,

Commenting upon General Miles' tes
timony that lie hud first formed the
opinion last August that the refrigerated
beef had been processed, the court re
marks: "Whatever the date upon which he i :
loruicd ti beliel, or a reasonable suspi-1
cion, that the health of the troops was j
being impaired by the use of deleterious
food, it was his bouuden. duty, in the '
opinion of the court, instantly to take j
the most effective measures within his I
control to ascertain tlie actual fact and j
to correct the wrong, if any should bo 1
louud. It would have been practicable !
to obtain samples of the beef then being j
supplied to the army by contractors and
to, have submitted these samples to j
chemical examination which would I
have resulted iu the detection of the I
presence or absence of boric and salicy
lic acids, or "any other chemical agent
that may have been used as a irierva
tive agent. Yet no such precaution as
that suggested was taken by the major
general commanding at tliat time, or at
any subsequent time so-far as has been
learned by the court.
"i'he court finds that the allegations
of the major general commanding to
the effect tliat the refrigerated beef
supplied to the troops was treoed with
chemical preservatives have not been
established. The court also finds that
so much of the allegations of the major
general commanding in respect to the
canned roast beef, as relates to its uu
snitability for foo.d, as actually used -on
the transports, and as to its extensive or
long continued use as a field ration are
sustained. In the opinion of the court
none of the other allegations iu relation
to Hie canned fresh beef arc sustained.
Tiie evidence shows that Colonel John
K. Weston, assistant commissary gen
eral of subsistence, recommended the
adoption of the canned roast beef as a
component of the field ration, and to
this extent he is responsible."
The report places the quantity of
canned roast beef purchased for the
war by the commissary -department at
fi.W7.17I iHjimds, including rioO.OOO
Mmids which was brought from liver-l-ool
and other Euglish iorts. This
amount is characterized as excessive,
and the commissary general (General
Eagan) is eerely criticized in several
parts of the document ou this score.
(Jne of 1 he severest rebukes is as follow.-:

The court finds that there was neglect
iu Cuba and to a less degree in Porto

refrigerated beef was at first received
with great satisfaction. There ii also
criticism of the delay in unloading the
refrigerating apparatus of Swift & Co.
at Santiago. "An appeal by the con
tractor's agent to General Shatter for
an order on the quartermaster to expe
dite the delivery from the transport of
the refrigerating plant did not effect

panies had their camp cookiug equip

canned roast beef is suitable for issfie, I

until after the surrender the, troops had

practicable with the individual kit car
ried. For such extensive use, or any
use, exceeding one day in five, the court
finds this beef ilnsnitable.

such a project, The court censures iu
the opinion of these men vhoae experi
ence iu active militarv service dated
An instruction of the president's to I
the court was that "if the packers of j
the conntry are guilty it must be
known." Replying to this direction
the conrt sav:
"Tile court finds that at-the outbreak !
f hostilities in April, 16!)8, the packers j
f canned beef were engaged hi the
manufacture of an article of "standard
quality, well known to the trade and the
subsistence department, under the mime
of canned roast beef. The methods of
Kicking then in use were the .same as
those habitually employed in the prepa
ration of the meat as an article of com
merce, and the court docs not find that
they undeiwent any change during the
progress of the Avar. The large, pur- !
chases for the use of the military forces '
during the mouths of May ami .Tune, '
lb!lf were made not at the solicitation
of the packers, or in consequence of ef
forts put forth by them for that puqiose
but by the order mid upon the initia
tive of the commissary general of sub
sistence, such purchases being made iu
every case by officers of his department
in me usual maimer."
Un another point connected with the
packers the court says:
"Although the subject of readjust
ment of accounts between the United
States and contractors was not referred,
to the court, it appears from the testi
mony tliat whenever any cans. have
been found to be defective, subsequent
to their original delivery to tlie subsist
ence department, such cans have been I
replaced in ev.cry instance."
The charges of ( Scucral Miles as mauu
iu newspaper interviews, us well as
those made before the war investigating
commission, are referred to at length,
among them being the .interview with

General Miles made of tile conversation
a.- it was printed iu the Xew York
Herald, bu prints the charge as a part
of the allegations, saying ou this point:
The testimony of both Mr. Reid and
Mr. Berry of the Xew York Times
agree in the verity of the interview as
reported by the former, and this is
found in The Herald clipping. The
court does not therefore ignore this

j M.iMi.1, May S. The next task of
j the Americans will piobably lie to clear
the Filipnio or.t of Bacolor. about five
mil's xeithwcst of San Fernando. The
rebt 1 General Ma'sca'rdo has a force of
o.OUJ men there, well armed and i)S
sested of plenty of ammunition. His
tronp have never met American sol
diers, and they think, according tore
' p'jrts.carried to San Fernando, that they
can "whip the whole lot."
Bacolor is well entrenched, and thou
sands of natives are working liko
, beavirs. digging trenches and carrying
the dirr In baskets. The enemy uses
his riflemen for fighting only, but com-
pels the b'olomen and Ciiiuese, and even
the women, to labor incessantly;.
The rebels have an outpost' about a,
mile bevoud San Fernando, with a,
trench that holds between 200" tmd 300
men. From that point several volleys
were lilt, d last night upon the camp of
the'Twentieth Kansas, regiment.
Neither General MiicArtlmr or Gen
eral 1-awton moved Sunday, although
each reeoimoitered the country in his
own vicinity for some miles from head
quarters, developing the presence of
small forces of the enemy.
In the vicinity of Lagnua'de Bay tho
rebels are extremely active, bnf the lines
.of General Ovenshiiie -and Colonel
'Wholley, who is commanding General
King's brigade during the hitter's ill
ness, have been materially strength
ened, and there is no danger in that di
rection. The armed steamers" Lagmia do Bay
and Cavaduiiga. under Captain Grant,
have gone to Guagua. about five miles
Fouthwest of Bacolor, presumably to es
tablish a iiiiaseof supplicsfor the troops
engaged in the northern campaign.
It is rumored that Mabiui, president
of the cabinet, and miuister of foreign
atl'airs in the so-called Filipino govern;

I Tho entrance of the Americans into
San Fernando was virtually unopposed.
The .Filipinos, who expected the in-.
1 viulers to approach from the sea, had
1 that side of the town strongly gnarded,
' but there was only one line of trenches
' beyond San Tonus. Two battalion of
!-the Fifty-first Iowa regiment, which
swam tlie river north of the city, were
1 smartly peppered while .in the water,
but the rebels disappeared as soon as
the Americans reaciied the shore. In
tlie meantime the hospital .squad had
walked across the bridgo into tho city,
supposing the Americans were there.
They encountered no natives.
The few Spaniards and Filipinos who
were left welcomed the Americans and
opened their houses to then!. General

If the inhabitants of the San Fer
nando region are to be believed, there
was little sympathy arith the insurrec
tion in-tli.tr" quarter. Before evacuating
tlie city the rebels burned the church
' and the public buildiugs aud looted the
Chinese quarter. They drove many rich
Filipinos, with their families, out of the
city before them, as well as hundreds of
Chinese, to prevent them helping the
Americans-. They cut the throats of
some. Many Chinese hid on roof tops '
or in cellars, and wmur escaped by cut
ting off their queues. There were .0
fresh graves in the churchyard.
The country beyond ualumpit was
full of idl sorts of ingenius trenches and
pitfalls in the roads, with sharpened
bamboo, fortunately tne Americans 1
escaped the latter.

"iVhen a man's head aches it is because
the tissues of the brain do not receive
sufficient nourishment from the blood, or re
ceive, impure and unhealthy nourishment.
When a man gets nervous and sleepless, it
means that the blood is not properly nourishing-
the nerves. When his skin breaks
out with blotches arnd pimples and erup
tions, it means that the skin is being: fed
upon the impurities of the blood. Almost
every known disease is' primarily due to
improper nourishment through the blood,
which is the life-stream. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery is the greatest
of all blood-makers and purifiers. It gives
edge to the appetite, corrects all disorders
of the digestion, makes the assimilation of
the life-giving elements of the food per
fect, invigorates the liver, promotes secre
tion and excretion, and vitalizes-the whole

does not make corpulent people more cor
pulent. It enres 98 per cent, of all caseH
of lingering coughs, bronchial, throat and
kindred affections, which, if neglected,
lead up to consumption. It is the best of
