Supportinp the objections made to
tlie new naval appropriation bill by
Cushiag Stfltaon m Tha Tribune of Au
fflal 10, the National Security LflflJJBa
Iflfll nipht made public a communici
tion from J. Hernard Walker. chairman
of the navy committee of the leapue.
and Henry Reuterdahl, of the I'nited
States Naval Institute, critirising the
provision which place* the power if
promotion of OaBCflN in the han.N .ft"
fhe Secretary of the Navy.
While the leapue heartily indor-**
the big building proprammo as it came
from the Senate, nnd feel* that tha
eflMntial feature.s must not be endan
pered, it bclieves that the widest pub
licity should be piven to the evils of
the personnel provision. Accordinp tfl
the letter, the bill propose* "the most
important personnel legislation ever
enacted by Conpress. yet in the most
Mispiciou.-ly peculiar manner the vari?
ous foatnrea of thia bill have been con
cealed from the service, except for
hearinps lastii.p only three days, and
coverinp only one feature of the bill."
The leapue beheves that while promo?
tion of offlcen by sclection is desirabl ',
such selecticn should be made by a
board of naval ofhccr<.
I'artv I'atronage Increased.
"For Inereaaing the party patronap
tnd pork, tha personnel features of the
Senate bill are most admirsble," runs
the letter. "Thr party in power, with
the hundreds of appointment* of vari?
ous kinds provided in this bill. will
transform the navy into a hupe political
machine, and the Secretary of the
Navy will become a potentflte of poli
: tii BXpflBflfl of the navy's fsture
battle efficiency.
"The House < ommittee has as yet been
unable tfl ascertain who made the bill.
It was not drawn up by the General
Roard or any other renresentative
proup of officers. ln fact, the bill ha*
been enrefully kept from such bodies.
It was born in the dark. No naval offi?
cer father^ the bill, nor does any one
else, so far a* the House commi'tee

i:.-- -ueh a bill. fathered by no one
an.l kept pract ically secret from the
navy Itself, is a rank iajvatiCA to the
offleera "?'?ho are afloat and without a
voice in Conpress. The hearinp before
the House committee broupht out the
fact that the naval service had n>,t
for and did not want 'cver.ty >r
riphty more admirals, includinp the
new-fanpled 'deputy surgeon general'
or 'depu'y payma.-ftr general' a I
mirals all. Furthermore, it has been
broupht out that there was preat diver
sity of opinion amonp the officers as to
the selection feature.
-Promotion by seniority, now ifl
practice in the navy, violates every
tenet of life BBd hfips to kill the am
' b-.tion of the jrounger officer.-, who have
no chance to reacn BTflB a lieutenant'i
' rank before thfl up'- of forty. Hence,
there must !>.? some form of telection

the method of advaneemenl ibusI
be determined by fitness alone. and the

"ln 'he Senate bill the selection <>f
offlcen for promotion ia practically left
',, ti.e Secretary of the Navy. Baeh
kind of promotion is apt to Hepend
upon political influence, not profea

the eonsflqaent interjection of

The Tribune Justifies in
Greenhufs Libel Suit
Answer Filed in Court Declares Every Charge Against
"The Big Store" in Samuel Hopkins Adams's
Articles To Be True.
The answer of Tbe Tribune As.ocia
tion to tbe complaint in ihe $600,000
libel suit brought against it by Grcen
hut Coaapaey. Inc, has been served and
waa uled Saturday in the County
Clirk's office by Sackett. Chapman &.
Btereaa, the attoraoyi for the .lefend
' ant.
This answer is a long one of about
18,900 worda, exelueiea ef the exhibit*
anti*xed to it. lt contain a slutement
| of most of the details of the cxtraordi
i Bary litigation of which this libel suit
I ifl the outeome. and which grew out of
I the series of articles by Samuel Hop
I kins Adams on perniciou* and dishon
i est advertising und trade method*.
I which have appeared in the columns of
The Tribune during the last year and a
| half.
As stated in The Tribune's answer,
the plaintitT corporation was organizcd
! in September, 1 _? 1 r>. to take over the
i hu.-iness of its bankrupt predecessor,
.1 B. (ireenhut Company, Inc., which
had prcviously suceeeded to the busines*
? of the corpotations Grcenhut-Sicgel
; Cooper Company, Greenhu' & Co. and
Siege!-Cooper Company, in the conduct
ing of the large department store on
Sixth Avenue and F.ighteenth and N'ine
? ternth Streets. For many yeara the
manngement of these corporations had
been in the si me hands and had been
generally adverti.sed nnd known as
"Greenhut's" and "The Rig Store."
Advertising Method* Atlarked.
The tirst of Mr. Adams's article? re
gaining the "fake" tra.ie methoas und
i.d*.erti.*ing used bj thil establishment
? v.as published in the inring of 1911 and
COntnined charges against its trade ..nd
i drertiaing methods aa gravp as aar
? thing in the publication^ lued upon in
'? Ihi present libel -uit. It also contained
tlie statement that The Tribune had
refuaed to enrry the advertising of
I Greenhut'l because of its bad methods.
No complaint was ev .r made bv any
eaa connected with Greenhut's rcspect
it.g any statements contained in that
titicle or any assert ion made that
there was anything in it which was not
true; nor wai any libel suit brought
upon it. Soon after its publication
J. H. Greenhul Company, Inc,
went into bankruptcy, ar.d in Sept.em
. ber, 101 fi. the plaintitT corporation took
ov.i the stock of that nisolven* COI
ccrn and what waa left of itfl good will.
A Btated in the answer filed Sa'ur
day, Th* Tribune Bureau of Invest iga
tiors still continued to follow up eom
piaints regarding the advertising and
other trade methods of Greenhut's. and
particularly the mnnner in which it ad
vertiaed ar.d conducted the sale of the
? of the baahrupt A D. Mattheem
Company in January of this year.
On Friday, Februarv 4. Th* Tribune
publiahed announeementi 'hat on the
following Sunday there would appear
? eolumaa ?? "atorr** by Mr. adatni
of the mantrer in which he was a1
treeted by the advertisements nf this
sale and lio-.v "he went forth to see am;
to buy." One of these ..nnouncements
was beedd- ' Fake Sale at Greenhut's,"
and went on to state that "S..'ri lel
Hopkins Adams went shopping at
Greenhut's and found that the sale sup
posed to contain only the stock of the
banhrup. A. D Metthe?i Co. was
reelly a fine jumble of Greenhut trash,
Sil gel-Cnoper relic3 and enough g.n
uine Matthewi merchandise to lend
plausihility *o the ocenaion.
"It's aa clear a case of juggling
labels and marking up prices as The

encountcred even among the Kosof

of how the hone.it name of a respected

can be put to such use- in the face of
the new advertising law now in force
i.-, told in detail with dflocriptioni of
how each purchase wai mad". aml with
azpert appreiaali of raluationi in dey
after to-morrow's issue of the Sunday
I .junrtion Was I'rocured.
Readers of The Tribune will reruem
ber that Greenhut'l obtained from
Judge Newburger. in the Supreme
1 Court, a temporary injunction forbid
ding the publication on Sunday, Feb
runry ti. el the announced Adams story
of such "fake" sale, and that this was
served upon The Tribune before the
Sunday issue of the paper went to
This extraordinary proeedure, abso
lutely unprecedented in the history of

artu-le upon that Sunday; bir.
Henry W. Baehett, ai eooaael for The
Tribune. proaeated te tlie court his ar
gurnents, sho". ing that without e.xeep
tion the highest appeal courts, both
itntfl and Feoeral, had umformly held
that such an injunction was beyonil *he
powers of a court of equity, was in vio
lation of the State and Federal Con
. stitution and of the guaranteed pro.ee
i tion to freedom of the press, Jusiice
! Cohalan, before whom the matter araa
argucd, promptly vacated the injunc
J tion.
This ban having been lifted. The
Tribune soon afterward published dr.
Adams's "story" a* it Bed be. ?
nounced on Februarv 4, to which was
appeaded i recital of other damaging
r'acts diacorered by Tha Tribune Bu
? reau of Investigations after the in?
junction was granted.
Rose <? Fasku*, the attorneys for
Greenhut's, did not appeal from Jus?
tice Cohalan'* order vacating the in
! junction, but BOmfl weeks later asked
lor a discontmuance of the equity *uit
in which, in addition to the injunction.
the plaintitT ha.i asked for $200,1.
damagei for the publication of the an
nouncements ef th* Adam.< story.
Some time later Greenhut's brought
thc preiflBl libel suit, and the declara?

for whieh they sought publieity la

had begun a $600,000 libel suit againit

onls upon The Tribune's brief an
nouncements of that story which ap?
peared en Februarv 4, 1916.
The Tribune. nevertheless, Jnstiflei
il its answer not only upon the truth
