Hon. Robert T. Lincoln, Secretary of War?Sir:
By the act of congress approved July 5, isss. all
armv officers are retired on reaching the age of G4
years. If living, I will attain that age on the 8th
, day of February. 1884, hut as that period of the year
is "notsulted to the changes necessary on my retirement,
I have long contemplated anticipating the
event by some months to enable the President to
make these changes at a more convenient season of
the vear. and also to enable my successor to be in
office before the assembling of the next Congress.
I therefore request authority to turn over the
command of the army to Lieut. Gen. Sheridan, on
the tlrst day of November. 1883, and that I be ordered
to my home at St. Louis, Mo., there to await
the date of my legal retirement, and inasmuch as I
will have lor a long time much correspondence
about war and official matters, I also ask the favor
to have with me for a time my two personal aides
de camp, Cols. John E. Tourtelotte and John M.
Bacon. The others of my personal staff, viz: Cols.
O. M. Poe and J. C. Tidball, have already been assigned
to appropriate duties in their own branches
of the military service, the engineer and artillery.
All should retain their rank and pay as aides de
camp until February 8,1884.
By or before the 1st of November I can complete
all official reports, and I believe I can surrender
the army to my successor.in good shape and
condition, well provided In all respects and distributed
for the best interests of the country. lam
grateful that my physical and mental strength
remains unimpaired by years, and am thankful for
the liberal provision made by Congress for my declining
yea is. which will enable me to respond
promptly to any call the President may make for
my military serv ice or judgment as long as I live.
1 have the honor to be, your obedient servant,

As to Pension Attorneys.
The following important order was issued this afternoon:
Department of the Interior. >
Washington, october 31st, 18?3. f
Orrterefl: That whenever an attorney Ls c harged
with improper practises in prosecuting claims before
the Pension Office, the commissioner of pensions
shall Investigate the matter, giving such attorney
due notice, together with a copy of
the charges against him, that he may
be heard in the premises. When the
Investigation shall have been concluded the facts
shall be reported to the Secretary of the Interior
for consideration, together with the; testimony
upon which it is based and the recommendation of
the commissioner. During the Investigation into
the conduct of an attorney for "Improper practises
he shall be recognized In claims before the bureau
in his capacity as attorney, unless, for special rear
sons communicated to the Secretary of the Interior,
he shall be suspended.
h. m. Teller, Secretary.
The practise heretofore has been to suspend attorneys
pending the Investigation of the charges
made against them. It Ls stated that this rule has
worked hardship in several cases where the charges
have not been sustained, yet the business of the accused
has suffered.

the navy department closed.
The funeral of Mr. G. V. Fox, formerly Assistant
Secretary of the Navy, was held at St. John's
church at 2 o'clock this afternoon, Itev. Dr. Leonard
officiating. Mr. Fox had hosts of warm friends in
this city, and the attendance at his funeral was
very large. Mr. Fox was about starting for Washington,
where he had engaged quarters for the
winter, at the time death suddenly overtook him.
The pall-bearers were Admirals John C. Howell,
John Rodgers, Alexander Murray, and Jno. L. Worden;
Commodores Wm. G. Temple and J. C. Walker,
Surgeon General Wales and Medical Director P. J.

The Contest with polygamy*
the report of the commissioners as to the effect
of the recent legislation?effect of
woman suffrage?more legislation needed.
The commissioners appointed by President Arthur
under the anti-polygamy act of last year have submitted
their second annual report to the Secretary
of the Interior. In noting the fact that several
thousand polygamlsts were excluded from the polls
in Utah at the general election in August last, they
express the opinion that while such results are not
likely to have much effect upon the elderly men,
who already have a plurality of wives and several
families of children, they must have great weight
with the young men of the territory, many of whom
are ambitious and aspiring, and would not like voluntarily
to incur political ostracism. The commissioners
recommend that Congress enact a law declaring
all future marriages in the territory null
and void unless they are contracted and evidenced
in the manner provided by the same. They also
express the opinion that the woman suffrage law is
an obstruction to the speedy solution of the "vexed
auestion." They state that "if the next session of
tie legislative assembly, elected under the act of
Congress, shall fail to respond to the will of the
nation, Congress should have no hesitation in using
extraordinary measures to compel the people of this
territory to obey the laws of the land-''

Major Crumbaugfc Acquitted.
Major 8. B. Crumbaugh, formerly an officer in the
navy, was appointed collector of the second Kentucky
revenue district by President Arthur. Last
spring he was charged with trying to have all the
county republican conventions in his district and
other parts of the state adopt resolutions recomr
mending him for Secretary of the Navy in case Mr!
Chandler resigned. His enemies secured some personal
letters which had been sent in official envelopes,
and a charge of violating the postal laws was
made. The case has just been tried in Louisville,
and these letters were produced. One refers to
Commissioner Evans, who was instrumental in
securing his appointment, aa7*a narrow-minded i
and jealous man, who ls stung bymy [Crumbaugh's]
growing popularity, and is jeahius of the growing
esteem in which I am known to be held by the
President and of the probability of my soon being
appointed to a Cabinet position." The remaining
letters principally refer to local and state politicians.

"A middle aged man with a black must ache and

of Philadelphia. He was assigned to room
No. 99, on the fourth floor, which he paid for In

another letter.
A New York special to the Philadelphia Press
says that "one of the letters was written on official
paper of the Third Auditor ot the Treasury at
Washington. The writer, J. M. Vale, speaks of
spirit uallstlc seances at which he and Perron were
present, and winds up with the statement that the
spirits had signified their intention of giving manifestations
when both would be present at some
time In the future.
What is Known off th? Deceased in
Tki? C ity.
A Star reporter saw Mr. J. M. Vale at the Third
Auditor's ofliee this morning, and he said that he
knew Mr. A. M. Perrottet, or rather Perrot/ele,
wlilch Ls his right name, very well, and he remembered
having written the letter found In the pocket
of the deceased. Mr. l'errotele, he said, was a
$1,200 clerk In the adjutant general's office. He
was a native of England, and came to this country
about the closo of the war. Joining the regular
army. In which lie served for some years. He has
resided In this city about six months, boarding at
17:12 G street, and was a member of Columbia
Lodge, No. 8, F. A. A. M. No cause can be assigned
by his friends for his having taken his life,
as he ls said to have been a perfectly sober man
and well to do. The lady with whom he boarded
here says that he was regular In his habits and
a great student. He was very conversaut upon
the subject of spiritualism, and had a large library
ot spiritualistic works. His friends were great ly
shocked to hear ot his death, and the Masons will
take some action in the matter at once.
what mr. ueushler says.
A Star reporter found Mr. Hershisr, writer of
the above letter, at the War department this morning,
and he was greatly shocked at hearing of Perrottet's
deatlL "He was a clerk In the War department,''
he said, "and my personal and Intimate
friend. I can't understand It. I should as soon
think or committing suicide myself as of Perrottet s
doing It. He was such a steady, even-tempered
man that one can hardly believe lu There was not
the slightest suspicion of an unsound mind: lie did
drink to excess, and he was In no financial
difficulty that I am aware of. He left here about
two weeks ago on his annual vacation, and 1 received
a letter from him from New York not a great
while ago. The letter found on him. signed by me,
was a request to look up the reported death of an
army officer in New York, and only last night I expressed
surprise to my wife that I had not received
an answer from him. The letter from Mr. Vale, of
the Treasury department, was an introduction to a
lady In Brooklyn. I saw It before Mr. Perrottet left
here. There can be no doubt about his being the
man, but I can't understand it." ,
The deceased served with Mr. Hershler, In Gen.
Sherldau's ofliee In Chicago, and came to the War
department about a year ago. He was about fortyfour
years of age, of rather light complexion. Information
of his death spread rapidly among the
clerks in the War department, by whom he was
highly esteemed.
