Greatly Excited Over the Scnndul.
Thero is a row in Company P of tits crack
Hoventh Ileglmont, which may result very
seriously for its commanding ofllcer, Capt.
Austin E. Allen.
Lieut. Thomas A. Patterson, Jr., in a word,
charges that Capt. Austlh'is atliTof, and tho
latter indignantly denies it. j
Tho under ofllcer insists that 'tno Captain

Captain on tho charges.

Capt. Allen went to his lockor Monday night
last, after drill, and took from the pocket of
his uniform a certain document, which con

claimed, were very damaging 'and compro

which tho latter know tho Lieutenant had in

about tho scandal, and no one seems to know
at present Just how it is going to como out.
According to tho stoiy told by Lent, Pat
terson's friend, tho document In question
referred to a difficulty of long standing be
tween tbo captain and his nontenant. Homo
say it was a letter which Capt. Allen w.oto

you or any other disinterested person would
"Thero aro. and havo been, no dissen
sions or factions iu mr company, which is
as harmonious as any company could be.
Of courso there are a few malcontents such
as are always found In any organized body
of men, but I knew of no charges or grounds
for charges against any one.

"When Col. .Apploton, therefore In
formed me a few days ago that charges had
been protnrnd against me 1 was astounded.
1 was still tnoio amarod whou tho Colonel
told mo what they wero for. I had board
nothing atmnt these papers, aud knew ab
tolutely nothing about their existence. -" ;
' 1 do not dispute tho fact that Lieut Pat
terson had papers iu bis pocket and that ho
mayhae loH them. Such a thing might
have easily occurred, Bnt ono thing is cer
tain, 1 know nothing about it, ono way or
1IFAUY roil A COCDT-UABTtAI.
" I can't say whether therewlll bo a court
martial or not. As far as I am concerned
1 will gladly submit to a court-martial or
anything Col. Appleton may desire, lor my
entire innocence will he too carlly proven.
WIIV HE WKXT TO TUB LOCKIU.
"It is true that I did go to Lieut, ratte.
son's looker on tho night that he alleges th
papers were taken, but I went there for a
porfeotlr legitimate aud proper purpose. .
Borne tlmo before I loaned ultn a copy of a
valuable work on tactics. I wished to rofor
to It aad got it from hii lockor. My Second
Lieutenant and soeial of my men wero
present at the tlmo, and certainly they could
see just what 1 did and whothor I took any
papers from his locker or not
"1 understand that the charges aro based
upon information from the Company' col
ored servant, and that ho says bo saw me
open tho looker, bnt could not, say whothcr
or not I took anything out. The officers and
nio n who woro with mo all saw mo open tho
locker and tako out tho book on tactics, so
you can seo that tho chargo Is a trumped tip
affair and absolutely false.
WHO IUH JMUBWOTIOX.
" If a domain! for a court martial is mado
within tho regiment, Cob Appleton will
probably order It as it would come nndor
his jurisdiction. If tho demand camo from
outside tho regiment, thou Brig. -Oen.
Fitzgerald is tho ofllcer to bo appealed to.
1 think, however, that tho matter will not
go outside the llogimciit
"I regret exceedingly that anything of
tho sort has occurred, for tho notoriety
which la unavoidably obtained through the
newspapers will prodtico the nsnal effect on
that class of people who aro always ready to
make capital ont of nothing.
"I caii only account for Lieut. Pattcson's.
actions iu one way, and that Is, ho la sore,
He Is a great hand to bring charges against
members of the company, and is very ox.
BAYS THE I.tnCTEHllST IS HORK.
" Ilecently he preferred chargo against
Corp. Douiinfck ami another member of thq
company named Mitchell. Both wero trlod
by court martial and honorably aoqulttcd,
and ever slnco thon Lieut Patterson has
been soro over it.
The men waro friends of mino to be snro;
but thoy wero regularly tried and acquitted.
That Lieut Patteson should have any feel,
lug towards mo for that reason seems
absurd. But that's all thero is to tho mat
ter, In my opinion. "

Major Kipp said to an UvEicixo WonLD re

Allen la very popular among his men, and
stands very high socially and otherwise.
He had a perfect right to go to Lieut Pat

that sort of a man.
THAT M18HIKO LETTTEH.
" Tho missing letter amounts to nothing
anyway. It does not reflect upon tho lntcg
