WASHINGTON. Oct. 30. The annual re tort of Inspector General J. C. Breckin ridge Fays that while there are reports of l.armony and good will among the officers vt the army the expression "All officers sire thoroughly instructed and efficient" is not heard so frequently as before, the Span ish war, due, no doubt, to the influx of joung and inexperienced officers. Most re ports, however, are favorable. Some lack of attention given by officers to their daily life and duties is noted. The report com mends the sagacity and ability of of lleers who have conducted civil affairs in trusted to them abroad. The class of lecniits rectived is reported generally up to the standard. The discipline of the troops is reported generally good. Of the post exchange the iuyj eetor gen eral says: "The. reports shuv that whtr- vtr practicable post exchanges were in operation at the garrisoned posts at the time of the inspector's isits, the pre Feribed rubs and regulations were being fully complied with and their business wa.- iK'ihg satisfactorily conducted. A ma jority of the posts at which exchanges are maintained were inspected before the law prohibiting the sile of beer in the canteen was enacted, and mot of the reports would not show the effect of the law upon them. At some of the posts inspected frince it was reported that the exchange was closed, as it was being operated at a los after the sale of beer was prohibited, while it others the operations under ex isting law were stated to be unsatisfac tory. The sentiment of the army on the rubject is well known and is given ex pression in the following remarks of in spectors general: Colonel Burton (Cuba) says: 'Officers generally complain that the elimination ot beer has worked a hardship on the soldier and has been detrimental to good order and military discipline." Lieutenant Colonel Reade (Dakota) re ports that the consensus of opinion is that the canteen feature promotes the morals, temperance, discipline and health of the men; and Major tshurpe Colorado consid ers the antl-eant n legislation of last win ter ill advised, and remarks that if "there ii no authorized and decently-kept place of report within a garrison where the sol dier can find recreation suited to his tastes and station of life, he will seek it outside, and the innumerable brothels and whisky dens which are springing up on the dge of reservations will prove the most baleful and destructive enemy to contentment and good order which a. garrison can be cursed with." Colonel Sanger (Philippines) reports: "The suppression of the canteen has practically suspended all post exchanges In these islands, and until officers and enlisted men can adapt themselves to the change it is Dot probable they will be re-established." General Breckinridge speaks in high terms of the various departments, especial ly mentioning that favorable reports have been received of the quartermaster, sub fclstence, medical and ordnance bureaus. fii:x. csiLLKsrurs iii:imiiit.

(CONCLUDED FROM FIRST PAGE.) telegram sent by Admiral Schley to the de partment July 10, saying in substance that he did not de3ire to assume entire credit for the victory of July 3, and that the vlc torv belonged to the fleet under the com mand of Admiral Sampson. In reply to a question from Captain Parker he said ho had taken this dispatch to Admiral Samp son, "who stated that he was very glad that I had sent It, and thought it was very generous." "Who was generous?" "I, of course." THE COURT'S QUESTIONS. The court then asked question?. "While off Cienfuegos could you see the shore to the westward so distinctly as to form an idea of the feasibility of making a landing there?" was the first. The witness an swered this question in the affirmative, and in reply to the next question said he had seen no fishermen or fishing boats on shore with whom he could have communicated. After a number of questions concerning coaling the court asked: "Ah you were ordered to Cienfuegos was It not your duty to communicate direct with the senior offi cer leaving there?' "If he had important information I think it was his duty to communicate it to me." "if you were governed in making the retrograde movement by the motives you have stated why did you send to the de partment the dispatch of May 27. 1'A which you gave to Captain Cotton to send in cipher from Kingston?" "That is a very difficult question to an swer." Admiral Ramsay You gave four motives for the retrograde movement. These mo tives do not appear clear to me. "I telegraphed mainly regarding the coal supply because I imagined that would be the most Important motive. 1 do not know that I gave the reasons for it. but I did In a subsequent dispatch to the department, stating that the movement to the westward had been for a certain object." "If it was your intention on May 31 to develop the Spanish shore batteries why did you signal that you were going in with the three ships the Massachusetts, the Iowa and the New Orleans only to fire on the Colon?" "I intended to use the large guns for that purpose, expecting to make another signal after boarding the Massachusetts, which I did told the New Orleans to lire at the batteries with her small guns." Replying to other questions Admiral Schley said he thought some of the pro jectiles tired at the American fleet May 31 came from other Zocapa hills. He was satisfied that some of them from the forts were from eight-inch guns; that the Merri mac had been required to use her own ma chinery as soon as it was repaired, and that the chief engineer of the squadron had ex plained to him the extent of the damage to the collier. The last question of the court was as follows: "Where could the Spanish squad ron have taken refuge If it had come out of the harbor at Santiago and had steered to the southward?" "It could have gone to Jamaica, but I should imagine that after having gone suffi ciently far to evade me the Spanish fleet would have skirted around to the west ward, knowing that Admiral Sampson had left Havana for the east." Then, at 3:08 p. m., Admiral Schley was finally excused and at 3:10, there being no other witnesses present, the court ad journed until to-morrow. Tin: srppiti:ssi:ii hkpokt.

Oct. 30. -It is learned to night that the original and unpublished re port of Admiral Schley of the battle of San tiago to Admiral Sampson referred to In the proceedings before the court of inquiry to-day was of a preliminary character, and differed from that subsequently made in that it omitted mention altogether of the cruiser New York, and that it also ie- quested that the latter (Admiral Sampson) have the commanding officers or captains of the vessels engaged transmit to him (Schley) their detailed accounts of the ac tion in order that he might write a full and complete official report of the battle. The suppressed preliminary report made by Admiral Schley is dated off Santiago, July 3. and is addressed to Admiral Samp son, the commander-in-chief of the North Atlantic station. The report in substance describes the coming out of the Spanish tic et from the harbor of Santiago and calls attention to the fact that signals were made to the vessels of the American fleet which were obeyed by all the ship?. It then proceeds to describe the fight and Kives briefly the part played in it bv eaeh one of the ships, showing that the Brook lyn, the Oregon, the Texas and the Iowa lemalntd in action until the Viscaya went ashore and that the Colon surrendered to the Brooklyn and the Oregon. The admiral commends the bravery of all the American oflicers and crews encaged in the fight. and recommends the commanding officers for gallant and meritorious conduct and for the superl) handling of their ships.

CO.-The State rested in the Dunn case at 3 o'clock thl3 afternoon, and adjournment was taken un til to-morrow. Marie Sampleson's cross examination was finished at half-past 11, when she had been on the stand in all six and one-half hours. She bore the physical strain well. This morning she was led to tell about a quarrel with Edna Cothrell, when riding in a buggy, with Del P.eed driving. In this she said Edna had accused Dunn of malign ing her, and Marie defended him. Edna later In the day denied the quarrel, and also denied that she was at Dunn's in the afternoon, as Marie swore she was. She could not, therefore, have closed the cistern lid after Marie heard Alice scream, as Marie testified. Marie was led to make admissions con cerning the treatment given her at the jail until she was willing to sign the statement prepared for her by the State's attorney. She admitted that she and Del Reed occu pied the same apartments about one-third of the time, and that she had perjured her self before the coroner. She said she was afraid of Dunn. Her attempt at suicide, she said, was because her sister refused to allow her to marry Jim Burkdale. Del Reed was cross-examined, but added little light to the known facts, although he has been kept in prison since July 9 as a witness. Ills testimony only went to show that Dunn knew of and permitted his co habitation with Marie. Edna Cothrell was the last witness for the State, but apart from the fact that she contradicted the chief witness for the State, thus Impeaching Marie's credibility, she contributed little of worth or Interest.

Under the law the sentence will be from two to twenty-one years. The jury was widely divided at the start, as the evi dence was very conflicting as to the claim of self-defense. The defense will ask for a new trial. This will be done on a number of grounds. The most important is that Judge Piety, in the course of the trial, remarked that the defense could put Mattox on the stand if it wanted to prove a certain fact, and, although tne judge immediately re called the remark, the lawyers for the de fense say the decision of the Supreme Court leave no doubt that it was an error on which a new trial must be granted.

Thousands of Such Cases Mr. Storms's Letter. A medical journal, says a writer in th Boston Tiavtler. has the names and ad dresses and full Mstories of hundreds of cases of chronic and avute rheumatism that have been permanently cured by the wonderful remedy which has recently been attracting wide attention since I'overnor Yates, of Illinois, publicly indorsed it. Nothing else Sias ever been known to cure like obstinate cases. When .ill others h ive j failed this marciou remedy for blood an J nerves has made sick people well. Raine'. celery compound corrects un healthy nerve action and feeds the nerve centers with the elements ru-eded to build them up ngain into healthy tissues. It cleanses the blood of every tnue of poi sonous humor and emourases a rapid growth of the red corpuscles upon which the vigor of the entire body depends. Its action is perfectly intelligible to every able physician. Diseases of the nervous system do not come without warning. Rheumatism, dys pepsia. Insomnia, and diseases of the liver and kidneys are but loud Ties for a prompt Increase of nourishment for th brain and nerve centers. Ralne's celery r.fvl'vfo-Xr-: A WESTERN CATTLE KING. compound feeds these vital parts, and it ii upon its marvelous power of nourishing all the nerve tissues and purifying the blood that its remarkable cures depend. Weariness, lack of energy and despond ency are more a matter of nerves and brain than of muscles. At this season of the year, when thousands of overworking people are entering upon the drudgery that will have no cessation for nearly a year to come, many are already showing the symp toms that sooner or later result from hurry, care, anxiety and haste without the amount of rest and recreation that nature intended. Thousands of tired mothers, school teach ers and too ambitious scholars will reveal the strain before the winter is over. It is high time for all to strike at tht root of the trouble. Begin the work of r cuperation and cure at the earliest mo ment. All who try it will find strenRth and free elom from disease In Paine's celery com pound, which corrects unhealthy nerve ac tion and supplies the veins with pure, more abundant, more vigorous blood. Paine' celery compound is almost universally pre scribed by physicians who differ on many other things, but who estimate at Its proper worth this greatest of all remedies for th prevention and cure of disease. It i no ex aggeration to say that every week brines hundreds of letters from those who h.!e use-d Paine's celery compound and hae been benefited by it. Above is the picture of Representative G. H. Storms, one of the cattle kiiiRs of Kansas, who says: '"I re gard Paine's celery compound as the most beneficial and valuable of remedies, espe cially during the fall months." He writen, as have many thousand of others, of the good the remedy has done In his own cas. Let the reader try it and prove for himself the abundant truth of all that hns been paid. It is not what Paine's celery compound says, but what it doe, that tells the story of its world-wide fame.
