(Jo to Courr.
Major-Gen. John F. O'Hyan has de

what he considers his unjust and Il
legal removal by Gov. Dlx from the
nctlve list as Commanding General of
the New York National Guard. Judge
Henry A. Gllderslteve Is to act as coun

ing statement In regard to the nature
of the action which It Is proposed to
bring and the grounds upon which It
Is claimed the action placing tho Gen

legal. Judge Glldcrslecve believes that
Gen. O'ltynn as a matter of law Is

The reports appearing In the papts
from time to too bearing upon the status
In the National Guard of Mnjor-Ucn. John
F. 0'Kati seem to rail for a brief state
ment from his counsel Indicating the legal
tuestlons Involved in order that the public
may not, nastily form an erroneous on nlou
on the merits of the controversy.
n is a inistnken view that the civil law
atords no relief to a military officer
against a person who usurps bis office.
i ne code or civil procedure expressly
proxldrs that the Attorney-General may
maintain tin notion upon his own Infer,
nation or upon the complaint of a pri
vate person against a person who usurps.
Intrudes Into or unlawfullv holds or r.
erelses within the State a rubllc office,
civil or military.
The existence of the office of theChlcf
of StafT, which seems to have precipitated
this conflict, nod the right of the Incum
bent of that office to Intrude Into and
Miurp the functions and duties of the
.Major-General under assumed lautholty of
the office of Chief of StafT vlll be the
Issues presented In an action tTi be brought
under the aboe provision of the code.
As to the means by which It was sought
to relieve Major-Gen. O'ftyan from his
command and place him upon tho super
numerary list. I say without hesitation
that the withdrawing of an officer from
the nctlve service and placing him upon
the supernumerary list was not Intended
by the military law to be used as a dis
ciplinary measure. I Imve seen It stated
in the newspapers that the action In Gen.
O'Hyan's case was sought to be Justified
on the ground that It was Intended as a
disciplinary measure. The Injustice of
amen a course is apparent, as the officer
has no opportunity to be heatd.
If this provision of th military law
were permitted to be used as a disci
plinary measure in other cases where It
has to be t sd legitimately It would carry
with It a stigma which the law did not
Intend should attach any more than when
an officer leaves the service by resigning
his commission or an enlisted man applies
for his discharge.
Adequate provision Is made In the mili
tary law for the dismissal and remoxal
of an officer without bis rntikeni. Ii ...
pressly provides thut he shall not be re
moved except by the Senate upon the
recommendation of the Governor or tl.
sentence of n gene-al court-martial, and
In either case the officer has a chance to
be heaid. This Is an application of the
fundamental principle of Justice that no
person shall be found guilty of any offence
without Mrst being confronted by his ac
cusers nnd given an opportunity 'to speak
in his own defence.
I regret to say. however, that the pro
vision of the military law for rendering
officers supernumerary has been fre.
fluently employed as an Indirect method
of removing officers from active service.
Brigades have been disbanded tn get
rid of llilKniller-Generals, regiments have
been wiped nut or ruluced to battalion
In order to oust Colonels, Hut It Is. how
ever, nn Indirect method which should
never be employed lu the military ser
vice, which Is founded upon the highest
principle of honor amlt Justice, and In
which It Is especially provided by regu
lation that punishments shall conform to
But Irrespective of the moral side of
the question and what may be its appli
cation to other officers this method of
temoval cannot be legally employed s n
means of retiring n Majnr-Geneiul. The
language of the section Is as follows:
".Supernumerary and retired offlrers
Commissioned officers whu shnll ! ren
dered surplus by reduction or disband
ment of organizations or In any manner
provided by this chapter now or hereafter,
iihiill be withdrawn from active service
and placed upon the supernumerary list."
A surplus means moro than IS needed.
That 1, an officer Is rendered surplus
when there Is no more necessity or re
quirement for his services.
I'or Instance, when two companies are
consolidated Into one It requires only one
set of company officers nnd provision has
to he made for withdrawing surplus offi
cers from the active list. Also when a
leglment Is reduced to a battalion there
Is no further duty for regimental officers
nnd they become surplus. These surplus
supernumerary officers nevertheless con
tinue to be officers In the National Guard
ami may be detailed for nctlve duty nnd
nlleved fiom active duty by the Gover
nor upon the recommendation of the
But ths situation In regard to the
Major-General Is entirely different. In
the first place, his status Is not the same
as other officers of the Guard, lie Is the
only officer whose nomination has to be
confirmed by the Senate and he receives
his appointment by ths Governor with
the consent of the Senate and his duties
as Malor-Genernl nre manifold, t'nder
certain conditions defined by the military
law he shall command the mllltla of the
State, That conipilses all the land and
liav.il and active and reserve forces of the
State. It Is only the active mllltla, which
consists of the organized nnd uniformed
mllltaiy forces of the State, that con
stitutes the National Guard.
The Major-General Is nlso, by virtue of
Ids office, commanding officer of the bri
gade and other military units of the Na
tional Guard of the State. This Is only
n modest part of the State mllltla, the
whole of yhlch, as hns been pointed out,
under certain circumstances, he shall com
mand. The Major-Genet al Is also rhlef

question affects the situation slnco the
Major-General Is Hlready removed from

APPEAL TO JEWISH VOTE
Says This Feature of Straus's
Candidacy Has Been
"The Jewish Vote was the subject of
an address given by Dr. Stephen S. Wise
before tho Kree Synagogue at Carnegie
Hall yesterday morning. He said:
"Some weeks ago we rejoiced in that
u Jew had been nominated for publio
office about whose fitness and high worth
no question could be raised. Whether
or not this candidate was to be elected
to the office for which he had been nomi
nated it was good to find throughout the
nation that he was deemed worthy of
the Hitfrngc of his fellow citizens and
that his nomination was greeted as a
deserved tribute to a publio servant of
unusual distinction. As a result of a
continued emphasis upon the Jewish
voto such as we dill not imagine could
ever be in American life the nomination
of this man has through no fault of his
own locomp a source of grief to every
right minded and truly earnest Jew.
"Throughout this election the Jewish
voter has been appealed to in crass and
unashamed fashion to vote as a Jew.
Never before have such bald appeals to
Jews been made to vote in their own
interest and on their own behalf as in
this election. Even Jews wise and well
intentioned seem to have forgotten that
any attempt to mass a Jewish vote were
calamitous to the highest interest of
Israel, nnd that Jewish leaders, who
for any reason whatever seek to influenco
the Jewish voto for or against any candi
date, for or against any public measure.
are rendering the n.ost serlouB disservice
to their fellow Jow.
"1 holieve that the Jewish leaders who
with regard to the (itiliernatorlal contest
in this .State- have urged the lection of a
non-Jewish but pro-Jewish candidate
have done so in the hope of laving the
ghost of the Jewish vote, fearful lost it
lie said that all Jews vote for a fellow Jew
and against his opiionont irrespective of
all othor considerations. Hut in truth they
have invoked tho ghost which they sought
to lay-to tho great hurt and deep injury
of Israel. Nothing can repair the evil of
bringing aliout a congregate and segto
4;at JovUu vole.
"In tho present contest for the nfTce of
Governor of New Vork that man should
be elected who ulves the surest promise
'by reason of his publio record and his
private chnrncter of faithful, disinterested
nnd consecrated service, if a man be
entitled lo tho support of his fellow
citizens that support ought to go to him
from Jows and Christians alike. I can
not conceive of any man being entitled to
the Mtpport of Jewish voters nt the polls
save in the measure in which he is de
serving of the support of all his fellow
citi7ns Irrespective of creed.
"We are about to elect a Governor of
the State of New York, and what a man
thinks about or has done in the matter
of abrogting the Russian treaty is not
the sole test of his fitness to fill the Guber
natorial office, Ihe abrogation of the
Russian treaty, which Russia had for a
I Keneration annulled in spirit, no more
affects the State of New York than the
State of Oklahoma. The Question involved
is not a Jewish question but an American
Question. Anv service that was rendered
in that conflict was not a service to Jews
but to America. Whatever service was
performed bv the chairman of the Com
mittee on Foreign Affairs of the House
or by the President of the United States
or by tho chairman of the American Jewish
Committee was rendered by American
citizens m tho name of American citizen
ship and in tho maintenance of the in
tegrity of tne American name,
"While Jews ought to vote with unan
imity and enthusiasm against any Jew
who in publio office might bring disgrace
upon the Jewish name, this new kind of
Jowitih voto which is being corralled
would be more likely to keep the best
Jew out of publio life thai) the worst.
"To my fellow Jews I would say that
they ore not to vote for a Jewish Candi
da to for publio office becauso he is a Jew
and uixm that ground alone. To non
JewH I would say, if it were needful so
to do, that they are not to vote against a
Jewish candidate because ho is a Jew and
on that ground alone. No appeal must go
out to Jews in respect of any candidate,
whether it be because a candidate is a
Jew or because of the poor Jewish record,
real or alleged of another candidate. We
are to voto not as Jews but as Ameri
cans, as American citizens, in deepest
loyalty to American ideals, fanatical in
our devotion to the fundamental nrin.
