ers, who was accused yesterday of
tramnline the American flae while
making a speech in Oakland, Cal.. in
September, makes a vigorous denial of
any Intent to insult the flag or of stand
ing upon It, and explained the incident
frcm his viewpoint.
The accusation was made in reports
to the war department from officers in
San Francisco and Los Angeles. The
most direct evidence appears In photo

by Ma jo? General Alnsworth, adjutant
general jf the army.
