MR r.g_D'8 VEBSlOX OF HIS WAR UKOdU?
Washington. April __ < Spedai V?In tho List
Congress the Committee on Rule? of the House
of Repr?sentatives 11 rot took the commanding
Taeitlon which lr has sslnco maintained In res-aid
to the consideration and disposition of legis?
lative huaineae Speaker Reed wae chairman, and
ihe other member* were Messrs. McKinley and
Cannon, Republican;*, and Blount and UcMillln.
Democrats The Itisi meeting of the committee
to prescribe a special order of business waa a
?"?mown?!* stormy one. * Ta ra mount" Blount,
wh?> has no more sense of humor than a graven
linage, took mutters very seriously, and. It la
aald. actually tried a filibuster. Of course, he
?ame to grief, but thereafter he had no oppor?
tunity t?> ?aake the attempt. What did happen
was described by Mr. McMlllln. now Oovernor
??f Tenness??. to a Tribune correspondent, about
Kced nnd McKinley and Cannon, or two of
tl.'tii. of which the Shaker was always one or
more, would get together and decid?; a ??uestlon.
Then tin* Speaker would send for me and say:
Well. Mee, Jo* and McKinley and I have de?
rided to perpetrate th?? following outrage, of
which we all desire you to have due noti???,'
"whereupon he would read and give me a copy of
?whatever special ottier had licen adopted by the
majority of the committee. He did the same
?with Blount. 1 )>eliev??. and he never tried to cat? 1?
ns napping; hut I can assure you that the Com?
mittee on Rule? wa? never a debating society
in which Blount and I took part after "the flrut
?explosion Nu. air!''
W. C. ? Breckinrldge, ?if Kentucky, brought
ito Congress the reputation of a ".sllvcr-tor.guCt_
orator," which. In his own estimation and that
of hla friends, he added to in the House of Rep
resentatlvee. Now. Mr. Reed does not hold lii
high regard wiat might be called the tricks of
oratory, being himself .?> man who speaks plainly
and to the point, without effectiveness of lan?
guage or gesture or careful ?mention to modula?
lion, and Colonel Breckinrldge is exactly the
reverse. He could not apeak five minutes, even
on any ordinary subject, without falling Into a
funereal tone, hard to deicrlbe or characterize
?until Mr. Reed did so. The Colonel was holding
forth one day and his voice had fallen into its
natia 1 mournful cadence, when Mr. l'cd saun?
tered Into the members' lobby and halted near
an open doorway. After a short pause, he
turned to a Tozai Representative with whom ho
bad long lieen chummy, and asked. In a drawl?
ing but solemn tone: "Judge, were you ac?
quainted with the deceased?" The question
went the rounds, and everybody saw the point
and enjoyed It, but it had no effect on Colonel
Brecklnrldgt's mode of oratory.
When Mr. Reed was a candidate for Speaker
!n the List Congress, three of his competitors
??vere Major McKinley, Mr. Burrows, now a
united State? Senator, and General Henderson,
i??f Iowa, all of whom had served in the Union
Army. Touard the last the contest became
rather warm, and the friends of one of these
candidates raised an objection again?-! Mr. TimtA
on the ground that he had no **soldier record"
In liis favor. Whin this wa. called to his at?
tention the Maine candidate, wh? h;"d already
?figured out a clear majority of the Republican
caucus, chueklt-d ai.d ?-aid: "Why. they don't
-no.v me or iny record. You Just say to them
that I kept grocery on a gunboat down in
Louir.lana in the war time." As a matter ?f
fac'.. he had seen honorable service aa an as
aietant ?paymaster In the Navy.
Some one pr?t iided not long ago to have dis?
covered a resemblance 1 et wen Secretary Alger
nnd fong'-essman Lacey. of Towa. It was
brought to the- attention of th? Speaker while
Lacey vas miking a speech on the floor of the
House upon ? bill with which the Speaker was
not in sympathy. Ah ????? as La.'cy had flnlrlini
Red strolled over to where the Iowa Congress?

The proceedings of the I'ourt of Inquiry which
was convened by ?Inverno,? Roosevi-lt to Investigate
the cenduct of the 71st Regimi nt were guarded with
extreme ?are. and little or nothing of the testimony
was given to the public it was well known that
the m?n who made the charge? which caused Lieu?
tenant-Colonel Smith ami Major Whittle to ask
for en investigation would do all In their power to
ni.ike good their damaging accusation?. As no re?
flections hall been cast on the regiment as a whole
in the controveray which followed the original
charges, i, w;,< fair to suppose that the Tisi Regi?
ment would go through the ordeal of Investigation
The report has been in Governor Roosevelt's
band? for ?sverai we?It?, ar.d in order to i>e fair
toward the officers whose conduct is criticised by
the Court of inquiry the Governor held a hearing
OH Thursday, whin the public had its tlrst p<?cp
Into the document which ?vas prepared by the
court. The hearing lasted m veril hours, and Lleu
triiiint-Colfniet Smith aud Major Whittle were al?
lowed to give their side of the story and to plead
their cases through counsel. It is believed that th?
case ?if Ueutsnant-Colonel Smith was'benefited by
the hearing. He told in ?. ?traightforw?rd ?ray
that he had no command on the day of the buttle
of San Juan Hill, and that he remained where he
was because Ms superior officer had ordered him
to remain ther?. The regiment had three majors
who each commanded a battalion, and Colonel
Smith had no function beyond i?mnlning with the
Colonel ??rl m civil,?? from him ?uch Instructions
?is/ he might ?vis), m |t?re. This Colon?! Smith did,
according to liis testimony before Governor Roose
vi il. Ho declared solemnly lhat he was conscious
of no neglect of duty, and he challenged ihe Judge
advocate of th. court to point out nn Inehtont
whi !i could be construe?! ga shirking duty. H?
appealed to Governor Roosevelt, it has been said,
and ask. I
"It the lieutenant-colonel of your regiment had

Colonel Smith said that if he had fell gulliy. if

Di would nave resigned when the Tist Regiment
rettirned. but he courted inqnirv. and If th?? report
should recommend that he be sent before an ea
aminine board h< would faee it.
Major Whin], ?s not so sure of his cas.?, and his
resignation will probably ?top further Inquiry.

received with mingled ?urpriM snd indignation by
the offb-cr'?- friends. "In all the te?tlmony which
was brought out," .?aid an officer and a friend cf
?Major Austin "there was boi one word reti,

he was under ? ?loud, and he went on the stand

?tienta, Oa., April -- (Special).?A few day? ago
Jidg- Lumpkln. of the Civil Division of the 8u
ptrlor Court for Fulton County. In which Atlanta
I? situated, announced that hereafter he would not
grant more than four divorces a week. All divorce
suits in this county are tried In this court, and tho
court Is In session on an average of (wenty-fiv?.?
weeks In each year. Judge Lumpkln? ruh would
therefore allow about one hundred decree? of di?
vorce a year. The population of Fulton County
is aboul UMSSi that of the etty of Atlant? la aboul
'.MiiMNi, and more that, BitM-tenth? of the divorce?
granted la the county are for residents cf Atlanta.
There is. therefore, according to Judg.? Lutnpkin's
rule, a prospect of one divorce to each thousand of
Atlanta'? population tor Um ??-? year.
Th?? divorce records of the last year or two do
not indicate that this is an extravagant ?stimate
lor this progressive city. At that rat??, Chicago Is
?ntltled to about two thousand divorces ? year,
?nd New-York City to something Ilk?? thirty?
five hundred The Incisa?? in the number of dl
\oi.es In Georgia, especially In the cities, has been
remarkable. It hns be? a out of all proportion to
the increase of population. Twenty years ago di?
vorce suits were rare in this State; now they have
become M common that they constitute a leading
source of news for the press and ink?? up a large

ii'S REMARKari.i: memory for plati" pt'T TO
MOD L'Sl "X IAN Jr,\x hii.i.-pas
WROKRS OM THI BLFOBD.
The Rev. Henry A. Brown, who ?van chaplain of
the Rough Riders, was one of the passengers on
the United States transport Buford. which reached
Its pier in Brooklyn yest?.rdiy morning. The oftV
Oera ot the Buford and the passenger? were all
talking about Chaplain Brown. They ?ay fha? n?
is not only a capital fellow, but that lie has a most
wonderful memory for place?. This trait was ex?
hibit??! in the success of the mission upon which
he was sent recently to Santiago. It was the ,11s
COVery Of the body of ?,'aptain "Bucky" O'Neill.
It s?cn,s that >??< r sine?? th?? war the friends of
Captain O'Neill, of the Rough Riders, and the War
Department h:?ve been trying to find his bod?,
which was burled on the slope of San Juan Ht'l
Six different men were sent South by the War De?
partment for tin- purpose of l?:cating It. Over .ft?*
was spuli in this way. but to no avail. Finally th?
War Department decided to .?..?id Chaplain Brown
,., San Juan Hill.
When the Buford wa.? about to sail on her last
trip to Cuba Chaplain Brown, who is now In the
Regular Arm?, was ordered to go down on her.
Those who went with him tell the ?tory of how
he found the body In le?s than two hours. When
the beat roar hod Santiago Chaplain Brown, a
brother of Captain O'Neill and som?? other? mog a
carriage for Sun Juan Hill. The chaplain directed
the movements of the driver. He ran his eye ov?r
th.? surrounding country, and with unerring judg?
ment lucated again the points in th? battle-field
where each mo?-?ment of hla regiment occurred
At last he turned Hie carriage into a ?Idr trail, by
means of which a little clearing wa?? reached
Chaplain Brown got out, cast hi? eye contempla?
tively around the ground for a f? ?* moments, and
then said lo his comrades:
"Dig there, and you will find the canteen which
we buried with ?he body of Captain O'Neill."
Sure enough, hardly had the spade? turm'd up two
shovelfuls of the t-otl before a rust? and weather
beaten canteen came to view. In It were the iiaper?
! identifying ihe body of Captain o Nein, as they hod
I been placed by Chaplain Brown nearly eight
I months ago Further excavation revealed the body
Of Captain O'Neill In a good stale of preservation
The body wa-, pia Oat In .1 "ffln and will las brought
to the United States on the transport Crook.
These who w?-re with Chaplain Brown on the
San Juan battle-field say thai II was .-.Imply marvel?
lous to see the facility with Ohteh ho pldMd on'
the v.irlnu? sp ?ts where thr Rollgh Ridera tell. He
g.iv?? then, a griiphie description of th? w.r
burli d the d id captain while the hattet? whistled
around their? and showered fragments of the foli?
age over their heads.
