JUDGE-ADVOCATE-GENERAL.
1 Fine Points of Xllltary Law In the Case
of (Jen, Swaim.
AFTER HIS PARDON WHAT? HE WOtlD AGAIN BE
JUDGE-ADVOCATE-GENERAL OF THE ARMY?THE
QUESTION OF HIS RETIREMENT, ETC.
The efforts that have lately been made to
secnre the pardon of Judge-Advocate-General
Swaim. now under sentence of suspension by
court-martial, ha* caused the discussion of
several tine points of military law among army
officers. Gen. Swaim's sentence is for twelve
years, beginning in July. 1884. tlins making it
extend to July. 1896. So that if the President
should remit the remainder of his sentence
now. or pardon him, he would by law revert
immediately to his post of judge-advocate
general. de facto, which he now holds, on the
face of the army register, merely ex-officio, aa
it were. He would thus become
REINSTATED TO HIS FULL PAT,
and would have about seven years to serve be
fore. under the operation of the thirty years'
service act. he could have the option to retire.
Thus, if the President should pardon General
Swaim without any further step he would be
virtually defeating the sentence of the court
martial. which had for its object the removal
of that officer from the army far all time. There
are two wayB for the President to prevent this.
One is to make a direct nomination to the Sen
ate of a successor to the judge-advocate-gen
eral. which would, upon continuation, legislate
him entirely out of trie service. Such a mode,
however, is not thought to be likely; it is
unusual, and might possibly fail from a lack of
the consent of the Senate. "
RETIREMENT AITER PARDON A POSSIBLE SOLU
TION OP THE PROBLEM.
The other method, which is very probably
the one that will be adopted should the Presi
dent see fit to take any steps in the matter, is
to Beoure the retirement of Gen. Swaim imme
diately after his pardon. There are three
grounds on which an arm v officer can be re
tired: The first is on account of disability, the
second on the basis of thirty years continuous
service, and th?>4hird is the age retirement, at
sixty-four years. The last is compulsory, the
second is entirely optional, and the first is par
tially optional and partially compulsory. Gen.
Swaim will not be sixtv-four years of age for
about seven years, and he has been in the ser
vice but twenty-three years, so that he will not
be able to retire on either of those grounds
until the expiration of his sentence, which the
court had in mind when the length of his term
of dismissal was fixed.
FIT FOR RETIREMENT ON ACCOUNT OF DISABILITY.
It is understood that Gen. Swaim has said
that he is in a disabled condition, fit for retire
ment. and. further, that he wishes to do so.
There are certain inducements that would lead
him to such a desire; for instance, he is now
on half pay, while his pay on the retired list
would be three-fourths of his former compen
sation.
Therefore it is thought that, should the Pres
ident pardon him. he will first order him before
an army retiring board for examination as to
his disabilities. If they reported that he was
unfit for further active duty and recommend
his retirement the President could then remit
the unexpired term of suspension, and immedi
ately- after order hit retirement on the ground
of the action of the board.
WHO WOULD SUCCEED HIM?
The post of judge-advocate-general would
then be left vacant and the President would
have the appointment of a successor. In that
*vent CoL Lieber. who is at present performing
the duties of the office, is thought to have
strong chances for succession to the head of the
judge-advocate-general's department.
SOUTHERN REPUBLICANS.
Legislation They Desire?They Will Not
Press a Southern Man for the Cabinet.
Judge Russell, of North Carolina, has been
added to the committee of five republican
members-elect to the Fifty-first Congress, here
tofore selected to look after the interests of
the south under the next administration. The
committee has informally talked over affairs,
but nothing will be decided upon until Judge
Russell's arrival. The purpose of the commit
tee is to ascertain the prevailing sentiment of
the republicans of the south on various public
questions, and then to communicate this senti
meut to the republican leaders in the north.
The committee has received nearly two hun
dred letters from prominent republicans in
every state in the south. These letters advo
cate the repeal of the tobacco tax. the passage
of a national election law. and the passage of
the Blair educational bill. Many of tnem favor
the entire abolition of the internal revenue
system. The writers generally sav it would be
encouraging to the republicans of the south if
a southern man was given a place in the cabi
net, but that thev do not wish any demand
therefor to be made upon Gen. Harrison. Bax
ter. of Tennessee, ana Bradley, of Kentucky,
seeui to be the favorites for Attorney-General,
and Mabone. Judge Honk, of the committee,
says, appears to be an almost universal favorite
for Postmaster-General.
Shelter for Herdic Patrons.
To the Editor of The Evening Stab :
I observe that a petition is being circulated
by one or more of our public-spirited citizens
asking the herdic company to have shelter
placed at the intersection of 15th street with
Pennsylvania avenue, where transfers are
made over the different routes of the company.
This shelter is a need which has long been felt
by people who have to w?ut in inclement
weather for the herdics to which they desire a
transfer, and there can be but little doubt that
such an improvement aa the one suggested
would prove as advantageous to the herdic
company as to ita patrons. W.P.

How He Changed the Bill.?Yesterday
afternoon the case of Michael Flood, the
alleged flim-dam operator, was called in the
Criminal Court. Judge Montgomery. His caae
came up on appeal from the Police Court,
where lie was convicted of the larceny of *20
from Adam EllenLerger. Mr. Shillington said
he expected to show that EUenberger handed
a ?20 bill to a woman to change, but she waa
I unable to change it; that Flood offered to
i change it and took the bill in his hand for the
I purpose. He then discovered that he coold
I not change it. and handed back what pur
Sirted to be the note, but it was subsequently
scovered to be a $2 bill. The case went over.
After hearing the testimony and arguments

dered a verdict of guilty.

THE WATER BILL.
Tlie CommUsioners Send Their Ylewa
to Chairman Hemphill.
The Commissioners bad a board session this
morning and gave final consideration to the
bill "to abolish water rent* for the ose of Po^
tomac water for domestic purposes in the Dis?
trict of Columbia." As the result of their
conference this morning they addressed a let*
ter to Representative Hemphill, chairman of
the House District committee. In this letter
they said* "This bill was prepared and sub
mitted by the Commissioners in deference to
the general sentiment of this community, and.
T'?w of the favorable financial condition
and resources of tjie District, which render
feasible as well as desirable the transfer of
this burden from the water-takers alone to the
general public, except when the use of the
water is directly connected with the conduct of
business for profit. In this connection the
Commissioners take occasion to again invite
attention to the following statement of their
views quoted from their letter originallv
transmitting the bill to your committee:
"The assessment of these water rents under
J , existing law, and the keeping of the records
incident thereto, are effected bv an assessment
department, under the chief clerk of the water
department, separate from the assessor's office.
w2. . ft. BePara*e complement of clerks and other
official paraphernalia. One of the results of
the proposed change would be the discontinu
ance of the chief clerk's office of the water de
partment and the consolidation of the remain
ing duties of that officer with those of the
assessor, to which they are germaine. and plac
HJf? them under the latter's supervision,
thereby materially conducing to economy and
convenience. The water rent is not a permanent
tax, but is a flexible charge, changeable from
year to yqpr at the pleasure of tho authorities,
subject to the restriction only that it shall be
sufficient to pay certain liabilities incident to
the extension, maintenance, and operation of
the water department, and never be a source of
revenue other than as a means of keeping up
in said cities of Washington and Georgetown a
supply of water. Whenever the expenses of
this department are augmented there must be
corresponding increase in the vearly charge
upon consumers, and this necessity is the
source of much embarrassment to the authori
ties and of irritation to the community by the
frequent additions to the water charges, while
the amount of water supplied per house is not
only not increased, but in many cases dimin
ished. and there is consequently a general de
slre for the abolition of this charge for water
used for domestic purposes.1
"It is proposed to continue a rent charge in
cases where water is used for business purposes
at a rate bearing relation to the quantity used,
which can be ascertained with reasonable ac
curacy bv the use of meters or otherwise.
"The Commissioners believe that the amount
of rents that can be collected for water used
for business purposes, without hardship to the
consumer, will be sufficient to pay all liabili
ties on account ol the interest and sinking-fund
now chargeable to the revenues derivable from
water rents, and that the ordinary expenses of
pipe distribution in the future can be readilv
met out of the general revenues/'
The Commissioners further recommend that
the words "in business of any kind, conducted
for purposes of profit," in lines 9 and 10. sec
tion 1, be stricken out and the words "waste
fully or for other than domestic purposes" in
serted in lieu thereof."
THE NAVY TO THE RESCUE.
American Interests to be Protected at
Samoa, Hayti and the Isthmus.
The government is experiencing the novelty
of having three foreign danger points to watch
at once, and all of them being considerably dis
tant from our borderg it is necessary, in order
to protect American interests, to have recourse
to the navy. The Haytian. Isthmus andSamoan
difficulties coming all together render the
vigilance difficult in view of the limited num
ber of vessels at the disposal of the Secretary
of the Navy. It has been his good fortune,
however, to have three vessels, conveniently
located, practically ready for sea. The
Atlanta, which is about >eady, will be
sent from New York to the assistance
of Admiral Luce at Port-au-Prince, where
matters are assuming a very dangerous
outlook. The \ andalia, at San Francisco, is
also practically ready to sail, and will be or
dered. it is understood, to Samoa to reinforce
the Nipsic The American interests on the
Samoan islands are not verv extensive, our
only property there being a' coaling harbor
that was given to this country a number of
years ago. It seems, however, "to be deemed
wise for the United States to be represented
among the Germans, English and natives bv
more than a single ship. The Mohican, now
at Mure Island, Cal., will be ready, it is
thought, in about two weeks, and she will then
be dispatched to Panama. The Trenton is ut
present on tho eastern side of the isthmus
There is great fear that the unsettled state of
things in the region of the unfinished canal
will lead to serious outbreaks among the thou->
sands of ignorant laborers employed on the
work, and, judging from former experiences
at that point, it is well that this country should
have forces on both sides of the isthmus.
Cannot be Blinked Out of Sight.
To the Editor uf Tut Evkniko Staf.:
Your editorial of yesterday on the purchase
of school-house sites by the District Commis
sioners treats the subject fairly, and I believe
reflects the sentiments of all honorable citi
zens. I agree with you that the President can
not be held responsible for the action of the
Commissioners in this matter up to this hour
as he has not the time to devote to an exami
nation of all the details of District affairs
Hut with the facts connected with these trans
actions staring him in the face, should he re
appoint Commissioner Webb, whose term of I
office expires next Sunday, then the President
becomes involved in the transaction and will
be held equally responsible with the Commis
sioners.
It will not do to try to belittle this business.
It is a serious matter and cannot be blinked
out of sight. I don't know how much Mr
Cox has made out of his position as middle
man tor the Commissioners, but learn from a
pretty reliable source that it is considerable.
Some putting his profits as high as *18,000.
In the case of Weller 4 Repetti, thev held
some building lots belonging to an 'invest
ment company which they offered to the Dis
trict Commissioners for 3cents per square
*??f- . Jow was their asking price, put on their
bulletin buArd and lithographed on their plat
of the lots for all the world to read. Tliey
would have been glad to have sold the lots for
several cents per foot less, net caah. Instead
of availing themselves of this opportunity to
purchase directly and with a discount for cash
the commissioners employed a middleman to
stand between them and the seller. This
middleman pays the highest price for the land
if sold on long time, then exacts from the
seller s agent one-half of his commission, then
turns the land over to the Commissioners for
46 cents per square foot, net cash.
It would seem as if Mr. Cox ought to have
been satisfied with the *32 he received from
Messrs. Weller A Re petti as one-half their com
missions for the few minutes' work he devoted
to this unnecessary business. But instead of
this, however, he, with the consent of the
Commissioners, proceeded to sell these lots to
the District in the name of Daniel 8. Pickerel!
(his own name not appearing in the transac
tion ) for 45 cents per square foot, thus realiz
ing 7,l4 cents per foot profit, amounting to
?2?,1-4?' ,be,ide8 t11? *32 he received as one
naif of the agent's commission, making a total
of 9323.44; that he received for standing be
tween the Commissioners and the sellers or
over ten times as much as Weller A Repetti.
who did all the work, received.
The friends of Messrs. Webb and Wheatley
try to belittle this matter by saying, that the
ln<Hi Mr- C0*' onlv |i323.44.
Well the investment was not large, being onlv
#2.400. It will be seen that Mr. Cox's commis
sions (or whatever it may be called) amounted
to over 13 per cent on the investment This
would seem to b? pretty good pay for standing
a few minutes as a go-between, without a dol
lar invested. Where is there any legitimate
business that can make such large profits?
without risk or capital? Pbo Boko Publico.
Took Back His Elopiko Wife.?John Zinner,
of Jersey City, applied at the Pawtucket, R. L,
police station Tuesday for an officer to go in
