armed with deadly weapons sworn to
uphold the laws of the United States,
and under every obligation of oath
and honor not merely from criminally
but with the sturdiest rigor to hunt
downcrimlially; and the crime they
committed or connived at was mux.
They perverted the power put into
their hands to sustain the law Into
the most deadly, violation of the law.
The noneommisdoned officers are prl
marily responsible for the discipline
and good conduct of the men; they
are appointed to their positions for
the very purpose of preserving this
discipline and good conduct, and of
detecting and securing the punish
ment of every enlisted man who does
what Iii wrong. They fill, with refer
ence to the discipline, apart that the
commissioned officers are of course un
able to fill, although the ultimate re
sponsibility for the discipline can
never be shifted from the shoulders of
the latter. Under any ordinary cir
cumstances trie first duty of the non
commissioned officers, as of the com
misf ioned officers, is to train the pri
vate in the ranks so that he may be
an efficient fighting man against a
foreign foe. But there is an even
higher duty, so obvious that it is not
under ordinary circumstances neces
sary so much as to allude to it?the
duty of training the soldier so that
he shall be a protection and not a
menace to his peaceful fellow-citizens,
and above all to the women and chil
dren of the nation. Unless this duty
is well performed, the army becomes
a mere dangerous mob; and if conduot
such as that of the murderers in
question is not, where possible, pun
ished, and, where this is not possible,
unless the chance of its repetition is
guarded against in the most thor
oughgoing fashion, it would be bet
ter that the entire army should be
disbanded. It is vital for the army
to be imbused with the spirit which
will make every man in it, and above
all, the officers and noncommissioned
fficers, feel it a matter of highest
obligation to discover and punish,
and not to shield, the criminal in uni
Yet some of the noncommissioned
officers and many of the men of the
Ihres companies in question have
banded together in a conspiracy to
protect the assassins and would-be
imanlni who have disgraced their
uniform by the.oonduot above relates.
Uany of these noncommissioned offi
oars and men muss have known, and
ill of them may have known, circum
stances whioh would have led to the
conviction of those engaged in the
murderous assault. They have stolid
ly and as one man broken their oaths
of enlistment and refused to help dis
cover the criminals.
By my dlreotion every effort was
made to persuade those innocent of
murder among them to separate
themselves from the guilty by help
lng bring the criminals to justice
They wo* e warned that if they did
not take advantage of the effarthey
would an be discharged from the ser
vice and forbidden egain to enter the
employ of the government. They re
fused to profit by the w ng. I ac
cordingly had them discharged. If
any organization of troops in the ser
vloe, white or black, is guilty of simi
lar conduct in the future I shall fol
low precisely the seme course. Under
no circumstances will I consent to
keep In the service bodies of men
whom the droumatajocesjahow to be a
menace to the country. Incidentally
I may add that the soldiers of longest
service and highest position who sof
fered because of the order, so far from
being* those who deserve most sym
pathy, deserve least, for they are the
men upon whom we seonld be able es
pecially to rely to prevent mutiny and
People have spoken as if this dis
charge from the service was a punish
rnent. I deny emphafcicail) that snob
is the case, because as punishment it
is utterly inadequate. The punish
meat *n?at for mutineers and murder
ers snob a* those guilty of the
Brownsville assault is death; and a
punishment only less severe ought to
be meted out to those who have aided
and abetted mutiny and murder and
treason by refusing to help In their
detection. I would that it were pos
sible for me to have punished the
guilty men. I regret most keenly
Chat I have not been able to do bo.
Be it remembered always that these
men were ail in the service of the
United States under oontraots of en.
listmont, whioh by their terms and
by statute were terminable by my di
rcotlcaoo commander-in-chief of the
army. It was my dear duty to ter
minate those contraots when the pub
lic interest demanded it; and it would
have been a betrayal of the public in
terest on my part not to terminate
the contracts whioh were keeping In
the r -vice of the United States a
body of mutineers and murderers.
Alter citing many precedents, both
in the United States and the Confed
erate armies, for his action in dis
charging the negro soldiers, and say
ing that he is and always has been
friendly disposed toward the negro,
President Boosevelt concludes by say
ing: I would bold myself unfit to be
president if I did not feel the same
revolt at wrong done a colored man
as 1 feel wrong done a white man. I
have condemned In unstinted terms
the orlme of lynohing perpetrated by
white men, and I should take Instant
advantage of any opportunity where*
by I could bring to justice a mob of
lynchers. In oreolselv the same spirit
I have now acted with reference to
these colored men who have
been guilty of a black and das
tardly crime. In one policy, as In
the other, I do not olalm as a favor,
but I challenge as a right, the sup
port of every oitizen of this country,
whatever his color, provided only he
bas in him the spirit of genuine and
far sighted patriotism.

A WORD TO GBITXC3.
Senator Tlllman Sayc No Chnrch
Baa Cancelled an Engagement.
A press dispatch has been going the
rounds to the effect that the good
church people of Bellalre, Ohio, can
celled Senator Tillman's lecture in
chat town because the lecturer would
not guarantee against uiin^ "cuss
words" in hisaddress. When his at
tention was called to the news item
by the Spartanburg Journal's corre
spondent and asked as to its authen
tic:?, he replied: "It's purely manu
factured stuff, bo fares I am concern
ed. I have neither booked nor can
celled a lecture at B rilaire."
"But, bo far.as 'cuss words' goes,"
resumed the senator vigorously, I
would direct the carping critics, es
peolaly in some sections, to the deifi
cation of William Lloyd Garrison's
emphatic utterance?"The compact
tbat ezistis between the North and
the South is a covenat with death
and an agreement with hell.' That
sentence was the slogan of the aboli
tionists and nigger lovers just prior to
the civil war. Yet Garrison was not
Honed for blasphemy, nor did the
?anotiliad and pious bold up their
hand in horroiand ory 'Unclean.' "
Senator Tillman continued that in
reading the Bible throughout the
scriptures, the work hell frequently
appears, and when he attends church
the ministers use the word some
times for force or effect, "to point a
moral or adorh a tale." And when it
came to expressing forcibly his opin
ion cn an amendment of the constitu
tion of the United States that calls
for social equality and political free
dom of the negro and he used the ex- f
pression "To hell with such a law,"
and the "goody goodies" called that
swearing, why he would Just have to
stand by it.
Sebool Childs on Drank.
Miss M. E. Vandyke, principal of
the Henrietta school, one of the char
ities of the Children's Ail Society, on
73 rd street, near Eleventh avenue,
New York, has appealed to the dis
trict attorney to investigate a distri
bution of whiskey samples
among the pupils. As a result of
this gratuitous distribution, a dozen
of the scholars attend, school with
well developed "pags." One boy it
i alleged, pat his tongue against a
hot stove to see if it would burn.
Others are said to have been seized
with the desire to dance, and others
to have been seized with drowsiness.
The school contains about 250 pu
pils of both sexes, ranging from 5 to
12 years. It is in the heart of the
"San Juan Hill" district, and many
of the pupils" are colored. It was
the colored children who were most
affected by the whiskey.

The other wounded are: John Cart,
about the eyes; Mark Cart, shot in
the right hand; Walter Cart, shot in
' aip and shoulder, and Laurie Kelly,
shot in the arm. After a race with
the sheriff, who shot at Goodwin sis
times, Goodwin was captured and
brought to jail. The fight was the
result of a trivial dispute between
two of the men.

Couldn't Get Another Nomination If
He Wanted It
w. J. Bryan in the Commoner in
state that the democrats' best chance
to win in 1908 arises from the assur
ances given by President Eoosevelt
that he will not again be a candidate.
Mr. Bryan says:
"The democrats may as well rec
ognize the situation and prepare for
it. In the first place, there Is no
probability or prospect of the pres
ident being a oandidate again, He
has so announced and it is only fair
to blm to take his word.
"Even if he desired to be uomlnst
ed, he would have difficulty in secur
ing a nomination. There 1b a di
vision in the republican party, and
that division extends from the top of
the party to the bottom. Mr. Boose
velt's radicalism has dipleased the
party leaders, and his last message
has very much aggravated the sltua
"The republicans who do not fa
vor the president's policies, when
supported by the republicans who
earnestly oppose a third term, would
b* strong enough to prevent) a re
nomination, so the thought of his
nomination can safely be put aside.
"Even if he were nominated, it
would not be good policy for the dem
ocrats to plan a conservative cam
paign. If Boosevelt were a candi
date it would not only be wise, but
necessary, for the democrats to make
a radioal fight. If the democrats
were to attempt to attack the pres
ident for indorsing democratic ideas
it would lose more demoorats than it
could gain republicans. "

the furniture that is unloaded from
the caravans. If the display meets
approval, it is concluded that the fam
ily are "nice people," and in time
many dainty bits of cardboard, with
more or less pretentious names, are
left at the new comers door. But if
the display is meager and mediocre,
people stand back and wait for the
strangers to prove their worthiness.
