WashingtonJuly 14.- General Cor-
bin, adjutant general. -.' has brought
suit for $10,000 against Orlan Clyde
Cullen, who is described simply as a
soldier iu the regular army. The
Washington grand Jury has indicted
Cullen for libel. It seems that Cullen
some time ago issued a circular In
which it was declared, among other
Tilings, mat t.enerai corimi was a
coward and a cheat at cards.
The adjutant general was naturally
much incensed by thesj charges, espe
cially when they kept bobbing up at
the time he was seeking promotion to
the rank of major general. He says
he doesn't care for the $10,000; what
he wants is a complete refutation of
the attacks made upon his character.
