Washington, Oct. 18. The annual re
port of Major General Kelson A. Miles,
commanding the department of the Mis
souri, showing tho conduct of affairs lir
that department, is a remarkably short
document considering the stormy period
of internal strife covered by it The ro
CKNKB.L KEL.SON A. MILF.8.
port begins with tho statement that thore
hnvo been niVhnngos of troops in tho de
partment during tho year, and continues
"As in previous years, tho troops in the
Indian mid Oklahoma territories have
been occupied during inueli of their time
in removing trespassers from tho publio
lauds, in preserving order in the newly
settled regions and in keeping the poaco
between hostile factions of the semi-civi-lizcd
Indian tribes. .
Troops at Chicago.
"In addition to removing and expelling
intruders in the Choctaw nation and from
tho Osago nnd Kuwind reservations, the
troops stationed at Forts Keno, Sill, and
Supply were called on for tho purpose of
protecting United States mails, guarding
railroad bridge and supporting the
United Stafo-s marshal in making arrests.
All of these tlitlicult duties have lecn per
formed in a manner which shows good
judgment and discretion on the part of
the ot!i?rs and a good state of discipline
and faithful service on tho part of the
troops, and it is believed but for their
intervention much bloodshed would have
n-sultcd. Tho troops having quickly and
efficiently accomplished the nrduous du
ties assigned to them, have been with
drawn from the field and returned to their
By Order or the President.
The rejKirt says in detail that tho com
panies nnd troops of regulars wore concen
trated in Chicago "by the orders of the
president of the United Stats to execute
tho orders and processes of tho United
States court to prevent tho obstructions
of tho United States moils and generally
to enforce the faithful execution of tho
laws of the United States."
General Miles then continues In the fol
lowing strain: "OJBfc conduct of the troops
in restoring order and confidence where
mob violence and a reign of terror existed
in Chicago was marked by great forbear
ance, fortitude and excellent discipline,
and their presence and action here very
greatly contributed to the maintenance of
civil law, and, in my opinion, saved this
country from a serious rclicllion when one
hud been publicly declared to exist by one
most responsible for its existence."
Lamimt Did Not Like It.
The above report was sent in somo time
ago, but it bus just been made public
When Secretary of War Lamont first road
it he did not liko it. lie accused Miles of
referring to Cleveland as the "one" who
declared rebellion to exist while being tho
"one most responsible for its existence."
In the tort correspondence which followed
between Miles und Lamont concerning
the phrasing of the report, the story goes
thot Lamont's conclusion that Cleveland
was meant and criticised was not com
lmttt d by Miles, who confined himself to
the statement thut he had neither apology
nor explanation to offer, and that he
should iu no wise rewrite or moderate his
Mile Didn't See It So.
Lamont not only regarded the sentence
as unwarranted criticism of Cleveland,
but one wholly out of place in a soldier,
whose duty, Lamont con wived it to be, to
obey orders in silence and to neither enter
tain not state views calling in question
the motives or conduct of his superior of
ficer, which in this case meant the
president. Miles, however, refused to see
his duty in this light. He urged that ho
was not only a soldier, but a citizen, too,
concerned like all men in having good
government; that while he reported to the
war department he, in fact, reported to
the nation; and thut as he held what he
said as pertinent and necessary, he should
insist on its retention in his report. Thus
tho affair ended so far as corrcspaudence
GENERAL MILES MEANT DEBS.
Ilia Beport Did Not Contain an Allusion to
CHICAGO, Oct. 18. Washington dis
patches regarding trouble between Sec
retary of War Lamont and General Milea
over a sentence in the report made by Gen
eral Miles on the Chicago strike, are dis
credited by the explanation made by Col.
onel J. P. Martin, assistant adjutant gen
eral of the department of the Missouri.
Tho phase which is alleged to have caused
the trouble ran as follows:
"And in my opinion they (the troops)
saved the country from a serious rebellion
when one had been declared to exist by
one most responsible for its existence."
"One most responsible for its existence."
There was said to be the rub, for it was
alleged that Lamont inferred that the
president was the "one" to whom refer
ence was made. Now comes Colonel Mar
tin and declares positively and emphatic
ally that the general didn't mean Presi
dent Cleveland at all, but Eugene V. Debs,
presidont of the American Kail way un
ion. "General Miles did not refer to any one
but Debs and lUa majlintniav" tnld Cgi?
