AN INQUIRY IS PROCEEDING

Baffles the Investigation.
There Is little doubt In Uie minds of the
naval officials that the leccat destructive
fires at the navy yard have been the work
of Incendiaries, and no efforts will be spared
to bring the firebug to Justice if it can
be ascertained who Is the guilty party.
Commander Norton yesterday appointed
Commander O'Niel, and Lieuts. Greene,
Keale, and Rogers a board of inquiry, to
Investigate the cause of the blaze In the
teaman gunners' quarters Thursday after
noon. The officials went over the ground thor
oughly, but were unable to discover any
thing that would act as a clew to direct
suspicion upon anyone. The attic wheie
the fire oiiginatcd was entirely empty
and there was seldom any occasion for any
employe to visit It.
Two marines, the only persons known to
have been in the upper story during the
day, were examined, but there is no sus
picion resting upon them, as they were
there early in the day, whereas the blaze
was not discovered until after 4 o'clock.
There was no evidence found of any oil
or other combustible substance having been
used to btart the fire, but as the timber
beneath the slate roof was dry as tinder
It burned rapidly.
The orf Icials are at a lov? as to whom to
euspect, or further, as to what the motive
could rosslbly be in attempting to burn
either of the buildings. "What adds still
further mystery to the easels the fact that
both fires startcdlu the daytime and when
there were any number of employes about
No suspicious characters were seen abont
the buildings prior to the breaking out of
the fire, and it is not believed that any
discharged employe could have done the

Eleven Directors Elected by the
Hoard The Hend of the Surgical
Department Is IlctiredDr. W.
P. Carr Takes HJs Place A New
Of the eleven members of the board of
directoisof the Emergency Hospital whose
tcims expired yesterday, all wens re
elected, with the exception of Dr. James
Kerr. In his place wan chosen Dr. William
P. Carr, of the Columbian University Medi
cal School. The otheis elected are.
Dr. Geoige L. Magrudcr, Dr. William W.
Johnbton, Dr Edmund L. Tompkins, Mr
Henry F. Blount, Mr. Henry L. West, Judge
JohnDavis, Mr. John B. Wight, Dr Swan
M. Burnett, Mr. A. T. Brittou, Mr. Calderou
The reasons for tho action of the board
in declining to re-elect Dr. Kerr have been
fully given in The Times. Three of the
directors were asked after the meeting jes
terduy afternoon at the hospital why Dr.
Kcirwas the exception. They Bald that his
term had expired, that lie wasnot re-elected,
and that was all there was about it.
Dr. Kerr, it has already been fctated, has
not been furnished with copies of the re
port of the special committee on which the
board acted yesterday. It was stated last
night on good authority that it was not
unlikely that the special Congressional com
mittee on the charities and hospital -f the
District had been asked to look into the
Kerr case and that one of the committee
had stated that such an Investigation would
be had. The Ernergencyllomltal.hesald.Is
practicallya Govern rnent institution, as the
United States contributes $15,000 to Its
support, while the contributions by citi
zens amounts to only about $1,000.
Dr. Kerr was, of course, not present at
the meeting yesterday He was nskd
last night for an expiesslon of opinion as
to the circumstances under which his con
nection with tho hospital was severed.
He said "It is the icstilt of a miserable
conspiracy. It has taken the staff a year
and a half practically to meet the condition
that they dared not remove nie under the
by-laws. To carry out this purpose of
leiuovul the by-laws were altered, they
deprived the hospital of its constituency,
they resorted to the tilck of dividing up
the surgical service among specialists,
and by other disreputable means in their
power, deprived me of my position
This? Is the second time they have voted
a man out of office without any pretence
that it was for tho reasons of inability
or incompetency to perform his duty. Dr
BaiKcr wab tlie other case whose removal
was the subject of a published lett"r, which
contained accusations which remain un
answered, and tlie evidenco produced by
use before the committee of investigation ie
inalns unanswered. Of course it wat a fore
gone conclusion tiiat this committee would
decide agunst me, It was a hopeless
task to get a fifth man, for they refused
to accept tills fifth man from outride of
the board of directors Oui only hope and
object in having an investigation at all
was to bring out the facts, and the-o facta
have been suppressed These facts, even
according to the majority report of the
committee, practically vindicate my con
tention throughout The hospital director
ate seemed impressed with the one Idea
of making me u scapegoat to hush up a
disreputable scandal, which they had
neither the courage to face nor the man
hood to Investigate
"The evidence on file with the committee,
including statements -onder oath, proie
conclusively, beyond possibility of doubt,
that the interests' of the hobpital were
made subservient to the protection of the
character of individuals who had forfeited
all right to consideration at the hands of
a hoard of directors having a proper le
gard for the welfare of the institution
It Is of Mich puMlanimity that I have been
made the victim.
"I am perfectly satisfied to leave the
matter to the public for its Judgment when
it shall have been placed properly before
it for its decision. Everybody who knows
anything about the Emergency Hospital
knows that the other members of the staff
have had nothing whatever to do with
building up the surgical work, and that
they have not contributed to the reputation
this hospital has acquired.
Up to about two -years ago, when this
trouble commenced, as I have stated
and proved to the satisfaction even of
the majority of the committee, there was
no meeting of the. staff, the minutes of
which do not contain suggestions from
mo for the development of the surgical
work nnd management o the hospital
to all of which they acceded. For the
past two years every suggestion of mine
has met with opposition. 'Ihcy, finally,
had no material connection with the
work of the hospital, their functions be
ing almost exclusively confined to the
dispensary, but on questions involving

eralds are his chlcfest glory Fortune,
said, the philosopher, is a Jade. But
Chang Ten Huan's jade Is worth forty
fortunes. Jado Is, of all precious 6toncs,
the one which Is most highly prized In
China. Tho ambassador has one necklace
of the rarest and most beautiful green
Jade, which Is valued at over 5,000, and
he never wears this except with a special
cohtumo, which exactly matches in color.
He has examples of jade carving which
are upwards of 2,000 years old, and ha
has carved jades which show the progress
of Chinese art from the dawn of history
down to modern times.
Chang Yen's is a fine figure for the dis
play of glowing costumes and glittering
jewels, for he stands over six feet in
height, is broad In proportion, and, not
withstanding his fifty-seven years, carries
himself as erect as a tower. He Is ex

was equal to the emergency. He as
sured the man he could cause another
limb to come in place of the lost mem

that he had but a few years yet to live,
while there was an eternity beyond tho
grave. "And if I now give you another
