These searches for knowledge of the pro
fession or arms were purely voluntary and
entailed no expense upon the Government,
and no trouble further than to issue special
passports which would entitle the holders
to greater privileges than ordinary pass
ports When Mr. OIney became Secretary of
State he decided to put a stop, as far as
possible, to this custom, and he issued an
order which provided.

issue special passports requested by the
War Department, to officers going abroad,
only to be put to uses tending to Increase
thcefficiencyof the military service, and not
for purposes of purely private or personal
This order effectually put a stop to
young officers going abroad, unless seat
officially by the War Department, and de
prived them of tlie opportunities afforded
in Europe of perfecting their military
education. Many complaints were made
by Army men against the order, but Secre
tary OIney refusedto rescind It.

the order, mid is causing a ciioular to

lemain there until tomorrow, when he and
Secretary Louis F. Corca and Attache J.
D. Rodriguez will return to Nicaragua.
Recently the minister applied for a leave
of absence and his government granted
it. He will return, so Third Assistant Sec
retary of State Cridler said yesterday,
stiiely in the fall. Air. Ciidler declared
there was no truth in the sensational re
ports published yesterday in the New York
papers to the effect that Alini.-ter Rodri
guez had been recalled by his government
and asked to accept another mission. One
of the most Important measures with which
Alinister Rodriguez has been connectedis the
Nicaragua Canal, and before he departed
from this city Alonday he informed Presi
dent AlrKinley that he "was content with
its condition. The chatter of the canal
company will not expire until October,
1S99, and Alinister Rodriguez is hopeful
that before that time this Government will
take such action as will hasten the con
struction of the canal.
