Warhivoton, Oct. 6. Another day of Inquiry
by tho War Investigating Commission haa
paused, and no evidence haa yet developed con
Tlctlng the Administration of mismanagement
of the war wlth8paln. The testimony of two
witnesses was concluded this afternoon, and
either of thorn Indicated whllo under exam
ination that there was any just cause for critl
elslng the action of the War Department offi
cials or of tho Tresldent.
Brlg.-Gen. Henry V. Boynton and Major-Gen.
Fitzhugh Lee testified to-day. They told about
tho conduct of their commands and camps, tha
commissary arrangements, the Quartermas
ter' departments and the Hospital Corps.
Gen. Boynton said that the War Department
was not to blame If oamp nrrangomenta were
defective, and held that brigade and regl
montal commanders were responsible. Gen.
Lee gave similar tostlmony. and showed how
In somo camps In his oorps the percentage of
illness was vory slight, while in other roglmenta
the number of sick was about a hundred.
Gen. Boynton said that there was no reasona
ble ground for criticising tho food furnished
the man at Camp Thomas, in Chlckamaoga
Park, and Gen l.ee said that he believed tha
army ration in his camps to be abundant. Both
officers aaid that the fresh beef was in good
condition, with the exception of outer edges of
large pieces that had been exposed to tha sun.
Even then. Gen. Boynton said, regimental offi
cers could have had it exchanged If they had
so desired.
Gen. Boynton roplied to certain criticisms of
Camp Thomas and explained how they ware
without foundation. In a similar way Gan.
Lee answored charges against his camp at
Jacksonville, and both mon gave the same con
clusions, but In n different manner. Gen.
Boynton said that it troubled him to reply with
patience to some stories, but when a partic
ularly violent communication was read to Gen.
J.oo he laughed in surprise. He could not
understand how tho camp at Jacksonville
could bo so maligned. That a writer should
I say the food received by his men was filthy ha
ooold not comprehend ; in fact, when Gov.
Baaver had finished reading the communica
tion Gen. Leo asked. Incredulously. "Is that
my camp?"
Gen. Boynton Indicated the amount of cre
dence to be placed in the charges of Chaplain
James Dooley. who had characterized Camp
Thomas as " a holl on earth." by referring to a
tatement made by Dooley that there were 0.000
sink soldiers In the hospitals. Gen. Boynton
made, a personal investigation and found that
Father Dooloy had exaggerated tho number by
S.700. Thon he bolloved that the failure of tha
regimental officers to koep their camps In
elaan condition was due to the laok of oppor
tunity for oflloors from civil life to learn how to
properly conduct camps.
The management of the oamp at Jacksonville
waa described by Gen. Lee. and while he had
some suggestions to make, yet he willingly
stated that no one case had come to his atten
tion where any man had suffered or died of
starvation or other oause through tha neglect
of the War Department.
When the commission meets to-morrow Gen.
Greene, who has recently returned from Manila,
will be called to give his tostlmony. and will ba
followed by Col. Lee. who was under Gen.
iloynton at Camp Thomas, Chick amanga Park.
At 10:30 tha examination of Gen. H. V.
Boynton regarding the condition of affairs at
Camp Thomas was resumed.
"If camp arrangements were defective,"
asked Gov. Beaver, "who was responsible?"
"The brigade and regimental commanders,"
Gen. Ilovnton replied.
Inquiry was made about the reports con
cerning the camps of the Eighth and Ninth
New York regiments, especially as to the qual
ity of the food, coffee being served green, and
vegetables, chiefly potatoes and onlons.spolled.
Gen. Boynton said that all the coffee he hod
seen was roasted. As to the matter of food,
in whatever shape they put it there was no
reasonable ground for the sritloism. The
beef come in refrigerator cars of the same
kind that brings beef to Washington. He
never heard but two complaints regarding
supplies of meat and there never was a time
when such hcof as had spoiled could not have
been exchanged for good beef if the officers
had known how to do It.
Regarding the camps of the Eighth and
Ninth New York, Gon. Boynton said he per
sonally examined that of tho Eighth after Burgeon-General
Terry had described it as "inde
cent and filthy." "It waa just as alean as this
room, gentlemen," said Gen. Boynton. "Sur
geon Terry had said in tho New York Herald
that the camp was in the open field exposed to
the sun. That was just the place the officers
had selected for it. As to these stories, espe
cially about tho food, it troubles inc to speak
with patience."
A statement was read by Gen. Dodge from
Fat her James Dooley. Chaplain, saying that t lie
camp at Chlckatnaiiga l'ark was u perfect hell
on earth. War would have been u paradise
compared with the condition of Camp Thomas.
JJen died under the trees for want of water,
le said, and men had typhoid fever for days
without receiving medical attention, no one
even taking their temperature. Only a dozen
hospital attendants wore provided for f m
men. Everything about the camp was badlv
managed. Of the food, he said, but one word
would describe it rotten.
'I do not care to take issue with tho Chap
Jain," responded Gen. Iloynton. "Father
Dooley hail a tent tn our headquarters yurd
and he spent most of his time there. lather
Daly, another Chaplain, was with him. They
tola these stories to me and at first I was in
clined to put some trust in them. But inves
tigations I made myself soon made me lose
faith In them. Their stories would make all
the dime novels in the world uninteresting.
If the Chaplains saw the things described no
one else saw them."
Gen. Boynton said that on one occasion,
when the army was expected to be ordered to
Cuba, he asked Father Dooloy how many man
he supposed would lie left behind on aocount
of sickness. He answered 0.000. "I looked
up the sick list for that date," said Gen.
Boynton, "and found the total number report
ed sick in camp to bo 2,500 In quarters and
in hospital."
A similar statement to that of Father
Dooley's, sent to Wen. Dodge by Major Milo B.
Want of Kansas City, was read to Gen. Boyn
ton. Of this he suid:
"It could not be more exaggerated In the
English language. I am not acquainted with
any other."
The witness bore testimony to tho efficiency
of Gen. Brooke us a commander and discipli
narian, and said that no suggestion looking to
the i in pi o vi-1, i -nt of tin- sanitary condition of
the omit ! v,;is ncr avoided nr ignored py him ;
and as long n lie remained in command the
condition or tho camp was better than later In
Its history. Much of tho spreuil of the typhoid
fever was due to tho swarms of llit-s that pre
vailed in tlic camp. Hitting from company
touts and iness tents to the sinks, thut in
many eases were exposed and locuted near to
the camps. In this ho ugrt-cd with the medi
cal hoard .ipi.iiniii.il by Burgeon-General
Sternberg to investigate the cause and spread
of typhoid fever in the various camps. Hail
tha repiesentatiom made bv medical officers
regarding the necessity of changing the sinks
and other salutary precautions been observed,
in accordance with orders issued, the fever
outbreak would have linen much loss virulent.
In his opinion.
A colloquy ensued between Gen. Iloynton
and Dr. Connor as io the location of responsi
bility for failure to observe these representa
tions. ifii. Iloynton ...i I it lay with the regi
mental, brigade ami division commanders.
Ha explained, however, that he did not desire
to criticise oflloors who eamo Into the anny

"ion aie all veterans, gentlemen, ' ho said,
and know that there is much for a civilian to
Warn whun he comea into the army.'
Later Gen. Boynton was asLeil bv Cart.
Howell regarding the quality ami condition of
the foisl supplied to tho troops, which brought
from the witue.-u. this tribute to tin- Southern
soldier, with which In- closed his itateuiout:

Gan. Fitzhugh l.ee appeared before the com-
I ( '
mission upon the resumption of tha Inquiry
this afternoon. He said he did not object to
being sworn, and aftor taking the oath ex
plained his rank and the location of his camps.
He sala he had one division of troops at Tampa,
which was afterward transferred to Gen. (Vp
plngar'a corps. "I had vary little information
as to how the commands were supplied with
Quarto rm aster and other snprllaa at Tampa, as
Gen. Shatter was In command." .....
"How about your being supplied at Jack
sonville?" , . . . ,
"Mr command was supplied by order from
"How, br rail or water?"
"By rail principally." .
Gen. Ie snid he had no complaint to make
about the supplies furnished his corps. "Hol
dlers are like schoolboys, you know, and occa
sionally, when fresh meat would be received,
there would be a little complaint, but. gener
ally speaking, everything was all right."
"I suppose." Inquired Oen. Beaver, ' that you
have no objection to stating whether or not
your corps Is to go out of the United States?"
"I am Informed that my corps is to go to
"Is your corps organised efficiently for a
campaign in a foreign country?"
"It is." , u
Asked about the regular army ration. Gen.
Ie said: "It was abundant. In Jackson
ville we have been receiving refrigerator beef
from Chicago, but It is a question now whether
or not the live heel will be sent to Cuba and
butchered there. I think the latter the better
"If yon were short of beef and had only the
pork and other food of the regular army ration
would yon tnlnk that proper food for men serv
ing In summer In a tropical climate?"
Not Hit were used exclusively."
Referring to the ratious oC the Spanish sol
diers. Gen. Lee said: "They did not get many
while I was there." , . ..
Spooking of the army uniform used by the
Amerloan troops, he said he was afraid the
woollen shirts and blouses of the men would
be found very warm. He thought the khaki
uniform quite proper, and commended the
Spanish uniform as a good one.
"Your command Is being prepared for ser
vice in a oountry which you rupposo friendly.
Is It not?" questioned Gen. Beaver.
"1 am Informed that we will not have to en
counter an enemy, and have received private
advices that the Spaniards and Cubans will
welcome the arrival of the Amerloan soldlors.
Gen. Lee said that the siokness in his camp
amounted to only about 2 per cent. The dis
eases wore particularly malarial fever and a
fever called dengue. There were also some
oases of typhoid fever. He explained how
some regiments would have little sickness,
while others would have nearly a hundred
men sick in a regiment.
"I had the chief of my staff go around among
the brigade and regimental officers and hold
schools so that they would all be Informed as
to what to do. We have had little trouble In
supplying the slok with those things needed
outside of tha regular army provisions. We
have receive! muoh aid trom outside organi
zations, particularly the Bed Cross Society,
that had an agent regi larly in Jacksonville.
Gon. Beaver wantod to know the number of
deaths in Oen. Lee's corps since Its organiza
tion, but the witness was unable to furnish
the information, and the Inquiry roourred to
the quality of the food. He was asked what
the condition of the fresh meat was and re
plied: "As a general thing it vim very good.
Sometimes, in a very large piece of meat. the.
edges would be slightly tainted, and that part
would be eondemnod. The bread was gen
erally' cookudZin the ovens of the regiments,
and therefore they had little hard bread. Some
times the potatoes would be found Dad and
would be promptly condemned."
Asked as to the effectiveness of volunteer
officer and men, he testified: "I had alwavs
thought it they had taken one regular regi
ment and placed it with two volunteer regi
ments the latter would profit by the Associa
tion, but volunteer regiments were brigaded
together ana regulars brigaded together."
Don't you think that waa done because of
the exigencies of the occasion requiring the
regulars to go immediately to tho front?" he
was asked.
"Well. I always thought that volunteers
could be made very good soldiers in a very
short time. Thoy would make good soldlors.
particularly If placed before an enemy. The
olvil war waa fought principally by volun
teers." Gen. Lee said that he had been fortunate In
having a very efficient provost marshal in
Major Russell B. Harrison.
"lie has found how to make a drunken man
sober In Ave minutes by turning a hose on
him. It answers udmirubly. You can get
sober very quick. I know of one soldier who
was so limp that he could not walk. His
clothes were removed and he was placed
under the hose and he was sober in Ave min
utes." Gen. Beaver called Gen. Lee's attention to
a letter received by the President. In whloh it
was stated that the food the men hod to eat
was filthy and that there was not enough, and
that the officers and doctors were often drunk.
tn response he said:
"I have seen some statements, not exactly
like that, but in each case there was a griev
ance. If you will give me the name of the
writer I will Investigate it and I am satisfied
it will be found that the man has a griev
ance." .
SGan. Loe was informed that the letter was
written by a man In New York, who said he
had a very dear friend who gave him the In
formation upon whloh the communication was
based. The friend claimed to belong to a
Maryland regiment of immunes.
"There la no Maryland regiment of im
munes." answered Gen. Lee. He suid he fre
quently received complaints from the rela
tives of men enlisted in his oorps, but upon In
vestigation found that the statements were al
ways greatly exaggerated.
'"Then you always Investigated all com
plaints?" lie was asked.
"I did."
Gen. Lee said he did not think that any for
eign troops could campaign In Cuba In sum
mer. The Cubans and Spaniards abstained
from campaigning in summer. The sun la
very hot there una the dews aro very heavy. To
campaign in Cuba in the fall and winter would
be all right.
A very high tribute was paid to Oen. Has
brouck, Iu command of the Fourth Virginia
Volunteers, and Gen Lee could not under
stand a c unplalnt. against the efficiency of his
command and the medical staff of the regi
ment. "There is no finer officer," he re
marked. Gen. Lee thought that volunteer surgeons
were not all up In their profession and not as
ood as those trained In the regular army.
e also believed that tho division hospitals
were too large, and that, while It occasioned
no serious trouble, it would have been bettor
to have had fewer division hospitals and more
brigade hospitals.
Cupt. Howell wanted to know if tho depart
ment had refused any requisitions made for
Gen. Lee's command
"Not slnoe the troops went abroad. Before
that there was some delay."
"Was that due, do you think, to negligence
or incompetence on the part of the depart
ment officials, or was It because tho supplies
had to be used to equip the men going to Cuba?"
asked Capt. Howell.
Gen. Lee answered that he believed It was
the troops going to Cuba and Porto Itluo thut
necessitated the .delay, "necausu after they
loft we got all we wanted."
Inquiry was next made If there was anv just,
canto then for criticism of the department or
the President, and the witness roplied: "Not
as iur us my commann is concerned,
Gon, Lee said he did want to go to Cuba,
but did nor expect to lead the troops at Ban -Hugo;
neither .did he desire to go with Gon.
Miles to Porto Bioo.
"I did want to go back to Havana. I was
not allowed to stay there, and of course wanted
to go back with a force large enougheto keep
me there."
He explained that the President recently told
him that hud it been found, necessary to make
an assault on Havana ho was to leud the as
sault. "I told him." said Oen. Lee. "that I was glad
no assault was to be made."
Recurring again to sickness in camp. Gen.
Lee called attention to the fact that the ltl6th
Indiana had an unusually smalt percentage of
sickness, while regiments all around it hud
a large number ot slok. An investigation was
made, and it waa discovered that Col. Cur gin,
in command ot the regiment, had scoured
an old eugiue and burned up all the refuse and
offal matter tn his camp. Gen. Lee said he
often visited the hospitals and listened to
whatever complaints the men might want to
make. Much laughter waa evoked over a de
scription of a man who saw Gen.Lee and culled
him to his oof.
"I am glad you have come." he said. "1 have
something to tell you."
"All right." responded Gon. Lee; "what do
you want?"
"I want a furlough." was his answer.
Col. Den by inquired into the difference be
tween the efficiency of volunteer olvil up
polnteea and regular army officers, and was
told that the latter proved more efficient, thut
more oases had'urUeii where a civil appointee
had to be removed and his duty performed
by a regular army officer. He Bald, several ot
his officers were regular army men and they
soon taught the others what to do.
In reply to a question from Geu. Wilson lie
said that at no time hud u single case come
tn his attention of any man suffering or dying
from starvation or other cause through anv
neglect or incompetence on the part oiuny of
the War Department officials. II,- reiterated
hi statement thuChe had had little eompluiut
in his command. The War Department, he
suid, hud advised him to purchase delicacies
for the sick, and he had done so, though the
Bed Cross did excellent work. He hud no
trouble about getting medical supplies, and
wherever anything worked unsatisfactorily It
was remedied without difficulty. He was
asked it he had not then got everything he
needed, aud he replied affirmatively, with the
qualification that only when the department
was fitting out the expeditions to Cuba and
Porto Bico were his requisitions doluyed iu
being filled.
"Well, are vou now fully ready to go to
t una? ho was asked.
"My i-.ii-p, cm go at once If necessary."
wnu Ins i-iftponsc.
He suid the majority of the men wanted to
go to Cuba, but tlieia were some who desired
to return to their home.
This conclu led (Ion, Lee's examination

diers in Havana Held In Their Barracks.
HiTim, Oct. 4. via Key West Gen. Blanco
summoned to the Palace yesterday Setlor
Galbis, Governor of the. Spanish Bank, and
demanded money to pay the mutinous sol
diers In the Cabanas fortress. Bettor Galbis
aid all the money In the bank was the de
posits of citizens. Blanco, however. Insisted,
declared that the Spanish In Havana were not
patriots, threatened to use foroo to get tho
money, and at last Galbis handed over $2,000,
which was sent to tho fortress. The sum was
but a drop In the bucket, and the moblllaadoa
ay they will retain their arms till the pay
ment is completed.
In Santa Clara province the Spanish guer
rillas have rebelled. From the sugar estate
Santa Rosa, near Cienfuegos. Cant. F.loy
Cortes and Lieut. Claudlo Sarrln, both Spanish
guerrillas, took to tho woods on Saturday with
130 mobllizados. They left behind them a
declaration that Spain had betrayed tho Span
lards and the Spanish Government had been
bought by the Americans They added that
Sagasta and Blancs had swindled tne Spanish
soldiers, pocketing thstr money.
On the other hand, they declared that tha
New York Junta and Callxto Garcia! had
been bought by the Americans to Jbetray the
Cubans. It waa necessary to raise the flag of
honesty against all.
The Cuban leader Sexto Boque. In oamp out
side of Cienfuegos. started to fight these Span
ish revolters with the approval of the Spanish
commander at Cienfuegos. Bnt the moblli
zados caught him in ambush nnd defeated his
insurgents, killing many. The Spanish bat
talions Luohana and Burgos, composed of
regulars, were than sent against them, but
It is feared these soldiers have also revolted.
Joining the mobllizados.
At Banehuolo Santa CUra province. 100
mobllizados revolted on Monday morning
Their cry was "Down with Blanco I" "Down
with Agulrrel"
Aa already oabled to The Sun, Gon. Agulrre
came to Havana last week to confer with Oen.
Blanco about tho situation, telling the moblli
zados he would return with money. He re
turned without it. When the news spread of
the revolt at Ranohuclo all tho mobllizados tn
the province, numbering over 8.000 men,
notified Gen. Agulrre. the military comman
der of tho provlnoo. that they would also re
volt if they did not receive their pay. Gen.
Agulrre went to the Custom House at Clen
fuegosrand demanded tha Immediate surren
der to him of all the money there to pay the
mobllizados. The collector refused to give
up the money unless ordered by Blanco. Gen.
Agulrre then took $00,000 by foroo. It was
all the cash In the safes.
But the mobllizados were not satisfied yet
and Gen. Agulrre telegraphed to Blanoo and
tho latter collected in Havana from the lottery
revenue and other sources $00,000 which ha
sent to Cienfuegos in charge ot Gen. Solano,
Blanco's chtef-of-staff. Solano was commis
sioned to try to appease the mobllizados.
This morning he telegraphed that the situa
tion was grave and more money was needed.
In Plnar del Rio province the mobllizados
revolted, demanding their money. The regu
lars also eay they want their pay. The Insur
gents have offered to help the Spanish authori
ties to keep order.
In Havana yesterday Gen, Blanco ordered
the regular troops to remain In their barracks
ready for any emergency. There Is no fear
of an attack on the Americans, nor Is the com
mission In danger. The trouble wholly re
lates to the payment of the troops. At a late
hour grave news comes from the outskirts ot
Guanabacoa. across the bay. that the Insurgent
forces under Gen. Cardenas have revolted, de
manding food or the right to seize It. They
say they are starving and want to fall on tha
town. They say the Americans are betraying
them, and want to kill them by starvation and
oonquer the Island.

Must Parents Re Reimbursed When the
Cost Has Been Borne by Them ?
Washinoton. Oct. 8. The War Department
has before It for settlement a question relative
to what reimbursement shall bo allowed the
families of soldiers who have died In the ser
vice and the expenses of whose sickness and
burial have been borne by their parents and
relatives. The question comes up on tho claim
of Harvey W. Perkins of tho South Bend, Ind.,
Tribune for something over $400 expended in
caringfor and burying his son. Harrv O. Per
kins, a member of Company F, 151st Indiana
Volunteers. Young Perkins was 18 years of
age, enlisted at the outset ot the war
and was sent with his regiment to one
of the Florida camps. There he was taken with
a fever and died. The father and mother of the
soldier were officially Informed of his condi
tion and wont to the camp to see that he was
properly cared for. With the consent of the
offlolals he was removed from the hospital tent
and taken to private quarters, whero he was
put under tho ohargs of a trained nurse and a
private physiolan. Despite this, however, the
boy died, and his body was taken home and
buried. Every dollar expended In nursing, in
transportation and In burial was paid by the
father of tho soldier, and this sum aggregated
about $400, which the department is now asked
Whether the fact that the soldier was per
mitted to bo removed from the regimental hos
pital by the consent of the military officials
binds the War Department for the expenses
incurred Is a question that has not yet been
pussedupon. Under tho law tho Government
can expend $15 only on the burial of a soldier.
Owing to the peoullar conditions surrounding
this war. Secretary Alger arbitrarily Increased
this allowance to $35. There is no record in
the department of such a sum as $400 ever
having boon allowed. The solitary case does
not worry the department so much as the
precedent that would be established were this
claim allowed.

the Ninth New York Regiment, which is due to

directing that the Twenty-second Regiment
be mustered out. Gov. Black said:
"I am satisfied that the, mi n of the Twenty
second Regiment desire to be mustered out,
though the War Department bus not yet signi
fied Its intention of relieving the regiment from
service. I will uot take any action until 1 learn
how the men of the Ninth Regiment feel about
the matter. When I saw the regiment at
Chlckamauga the men were almost unani
mously In fnvor of being mustered out at ones,
and unless Col. Greene can satisfy mo that they
have changed their minds I will not interfere.
If the men of tin- Ninth desire to remain In the
service I will request the War Department at
Washington to order the muster out. of tho
Twentv-sooond Instead of the Ninth Ilegi
mont." Col. Greene is desirous of having the Ninth
remain In the service for duty at Porto Rico.

War Departmont to prenare for the military
occupation of Cuba, wul start for the island
within a few days. The Chairman of the
board. Col. J. G. C. Loo of tho Quartermaster's
Department, had a conference to-day with

It was announced last week that the mili
tary occupation of Cuba would bo begun as
early as Oct. 15, and certainly not later than
Oot. 20. It was definitely stated to-day that
the occupation would not be begun until Oot.
27. whloh is nearer the date originally pub
lished IiiTbe Sun as tho opinion of Assistant
Secretary Meikeljohn. It was ul-o announced
to-day that Major-Gen. Fitchugh Leo would
go to the neighborhood of Havana with the
Seventh Army Corps about Nov. 1. This state
ment was made on the authority of Gen. l.ee
himself, after he had had a long conference
with Secretary Algor. Gen. Lee made a simi
lar statement In his testimony before the War
Investigating Commission. There Is no doubt
ihat it was the original intention of tha War
)opartment to assign Gen. Lee and the Sev
enth Army Corps to Puerto Frinclpe province,
but the General expressed such a strong dosire
to be sent to Havana that the department
finally decided to assign him to that province.
Tho details of the assignment ot troops for
garrison duty in Cuba are dopendent upon the
reorganization of the present oorps com
mands. The reorganization was drawn up yes
terday and was submitted to tho Secretary of
War for his approval. Secretary Alger talked
tho matter over with the President to-day. but
It was decided that tho plan of reorganizing
should not Iwi announced for a day or two. Sec
rotary Alger said this afternoon that the de
partment wished to work out the minutest de
tails of the new organization before announcing
it. Staff officers nave to be assigned to duty
with the several commanding Generals, and
not until this assignment Is completed will tho
reorganization bo announced officially. There
Isnodotibt. that the general plan of reorganiza

Commodore Philip Is Mow In Command of
the North Atlantic Station.
Washinoton. Oot. 0. Bear Admiral J. O.
Howoll was to-day detached from the com
mand of the North Atlnntio squadron, leaving
Commodre J. W. Philip as tha senior officer in
charge There Is no significance attaching to
the detachment of Admiral Howell beyond the
fact that the presence ot two flag officers with
the squadron caused considerable delay in the
transmission of orders and reports. Admiral
Howoll was acting as Commander-in-Chief ot
the North Atlantic station. In tha absence of
Bear Admiral Sampson in Havana, and Com
modore Philip wr-s in command of tho second
division of the fleet. When an order Intended
for one ot the vessels ot the second division
was sent by tho Navy Department it
was neccessarr, according to the naval
regulations, to transmit it to the senior
officer on the station, in this case
Admiral Howell, who in turn sentit to Commo
dore Philip, who forwarded it to the com
mander of tho vessel concerned. In forward
ing anv acknowledgment of the receipt of the
order this process ot circumlocution was car
ried In reverse order. The Navy Department
decided that two flag officers w ere unnecessary,
and having found another assignment for
Admiral Howell he has boon detached. He
will be placed on waiting orders for the pres
ent, and when Admiral Matthews Is retired tor
ace this month Admiral Howell will succeed
him as President of the Naval Examining and
Retiring Board.
Commodore riillip was in Washington to
day. He called at the White House in company
with Senator Piatt and laid before the Presi
dent his protest against the failure of the Navy
Department to carry out the President's direc
tions to advance him five numbers. Commo
dore Philip was nominally advanced five num
bers, but actually got nn advance, of four
numbers only. He thinks this is unjust and
wants the President to remedy It. Senator
Piatt sides with Commodore Philip and said so
to tho President, who prom ised to consider tha
case. On the decision In Commodore Philip's
case will depend a number of similar protests
made by officers who wore advanced and then
jumped by other officers.
Re Sees the President Regarding Commo
dore Philip's Promotion,
Washinoton, Oct. ft. Senator Piatt saw the
President this morning on behalf of Commo
dore Philip, whoso promotion in the list of
