that they do not mean what they say.
The following extracts from two well
known republican paers show what
the truths of Koosevelfs decision
Chicago Tribune: The opinion of
President Koosevelt in the Schley
case, is manifestly an effort to satisfy
both sides, with the result that he will
satisfy neither. Ire distributes praise
and blame with an impartial hand
Certain of the parties to the contro
versy will think the praise was tin
earneil. while others will look upon
the blame as undeserved.
Not attaching' too much imjxirtance
let the finely spun arguments of the
president, his conclusions are gener
ally adverse to Admiral Schlev at
every )oint. While the president trav
els outside of the record and censiiri
the court of inquiry for not condemn
ing Schley where it failed to condemn
him. he also disapproves of tin find
ing of the court in condemning- him
where it did condenm him. The pres
ident censures Admiral Schley even
more Mintedly than the court of in
ipiiry did. because he implies although
he does not say it in so many word
that, the outward turn or loop wji
inspired bv timidity. The president
opinion is an imputation upon the
courage of Schley. It partly justifies
Maclay's statement that Schley "turn
ed in caitiff tliirht." If the president
believes that Schley was overcome
bv timiilitv at the moment of the
loop, why was Maclay dismissed from
the navvV The court of iniiiiirv found
that Schley was "self-possessed" dnr
ing the battle ami by his example
eiicouraired his officer and men to
courageous conduct. The president
finds hat he was not "sel f-possessed
at the moment of the loop.
