Master-at-Arms Douglas KiHed
in a Scuffle.
SHOT BY SEAMAN BURKE
Latter Resisted Being Returned to
IDEA OF MUTINY SCOUTED
Fatal Affray the Besult of Continued
Ill-Feeling Between the Sailors
and Petty Officers.
The Navy Department early today received
a dispatch from the commandant ol
the League Island navy yard telling ol
trouble last night aboard the cruleer Tennessee
and stating that Chief Master-at
arms James Douglas, while taking Seaman
Burke from the mast to confinement
in the brig, was shot twice by Burke and
seriously wounded. He said nothing about
the death of Douglas, as reported In the
press dispatches, or of any others having
been shot. *
Tills is the first time within the recollection
of naval officers of many years' experience
that a sailor coming from shore
liberty has been found with a weapon or
his person. It has, however, been no uncommon
thing to find a bottle of liquor or
the person of an intoxicated sAman wher
searched. It is stated that owing to thf
fact that in recent years the general class
of the men has improved so much that th?
uuu ri ?, iii uiut'i nui iv lessen 111c men self-respect,
have permitted the custom ol
searching the men after shore liberty tt
fall into disuse.
There are two men aboard the Tennessee
and officers at the department scout th<
idea of a mutiny.
It is expected that the commandant of th?
League Island yard will at once submit bj
mall a detailed account of the circunv
stances of the shooting.
Lieut. Fields, who is executive officer ol
the Tennesee. has refused any information
to the public concerning the homicide,
declaring that as it happed on government
property he would make his report solely
to the Navy Department.
From Philadelphia it is learned that the
fatal affray was the result of cjntinued illfeeling
between the sailors and petty officers
of the Tennessee, who are accused ol
having treated the men very harshly ever
since the big cruiser was sent eouth to
escort the President on the Louisiana to
Panama and back. Last Tuesday Burke,
with Seamen Dean and Dunn, had been
placed in the brig for insubordination, and
it was alleged that they were planning to
make their escape, carrying with them several
other prisoners who were charged with
insolence toward Chief Master-at-arms
Douglas, who, it was said, had been the
special object of the crew's dislike. At
noon the three men named were brought
before the chief master-at-arms for sentence,
which was administered by Lieut.
Fields. Trouble followed when Douglas
undertook to rpnlarc th#* iron* nn rhp nri*.
oners and return them to the brig. He was
resisted, and in the course of a scuffle the
eailor Burke wrenched away Douglas' revolver,
and, although himself shoo in the
wrist, shot three times at Douglas and
then at Master-at-arms William McCool,
the latter receiving a llesh wound on the
arm and a wound on the face. Douglas
was *Jiot once In the brain and twice In the
breast and died at the naval hospital in
Philadelphia nearly an hour after the shooting.
Burke Is under arrest on the Tennessee.
but the Navy Department will turn
him over to the civil authorities for homicide.
A naval court of inquiry will also
be ordered at once to inquire into all the
details of the affair.
T TTJ11 a 1 1
w uptuiese oiufQ oy jjoug iaa.
Chief Master-at-arms Douglas was th<
same man who, while acting as masterat-arms
on the Indiana, killed a Japanese
steward by knocking him down and
, striking his heud against the deck of the
j ship. For this act he was tried and aeni
tenced to prison, where he served a term,
but was finally pardoned and resumed hia
service in the navy.
He was about forty years of age, a finelooking,
well-proportioned man, who,
despite his youthful looks, wore a gray
mustache. He had been in the service ten
or twelve years and called New York his
home. The killing of the Japanese was
regarded by the court more In the light
of an accident than of willful murder.

ABM7 HAN'S SAD CASE.
' Friends of Lieut. Hamilton Are Urging
f? ? nnan a# T lontannnt Tnhn SJ
1 Hamilton, Company F, 12th Infantry, who
' was recently found guilty by aL.court-mari
tial.of nearly three months' duration, and
i sentenced to be dismissed from the array
- without honor and also to serve a year and
a half of imprisonment In some penitentiary
to be designated by the War Department,
friends In the District are urging
1 clemency by the President. He was tried
on three special charges. Involving the mls,
appropriation of $1,100 of ' the fands of
Company F, absence wltho.*> leave and
i conduct unbecoming an officer. He was
,, found guilty on all three charges.
Lieutenant Hamilton's friends here refer
to HIS army recoru in LULU, vnma. aiiu me
Philippines. He was stricken with fever
while In Cuba, after which he re-enlisted
i in the 14th Infantry and participated later
in the siege of Peking. On his return to
the states he studied while stationed at
Fort Snelllng and won a commission and
was assigned to El Paso, Tex., with the
> 12th Infantry. He went to the Philippines
, a second time and saw active service in
Samar, pursuing and fighting the Pulajanes.
While in the Philippines he was
stricken with fever and he also had blood
s poisoning and nearly lost his left arm, suffering
terribly from boils and tumors.
While off Samar on one occasion he was
s in a storm at sea and his boat capsized.
win fripnrls further aver that he returned
to this country almost wrecked physically
and was forced to enter a hospital. Lieut.
Hamilton Is a Washington boy, having
spent much of his boyhood and youth In this
city. He attended school here and enjoyed
a wide acquaintanceship, many of whom
are now very much Interested in securing
They maintain that the testimony of the
alienists at the court-martial, certifying
that his mind had become unbalanced by
reason of his Philippine service, should have
mitigated his ofTense in the eyes of army
men who have had good reason to learn
foot two n^flsirtna nf sprvlfp in that ronn
try are particularly severe on the minds
and bodies of soldiers It is averred also
that a number of leading army surgeons recently
made extended reports to the surgeon
general declaring that a second tour of the
Philippines is Invariably fraught with much
danger, mentally, morally and physically,
to all the white soldiers.
Lieut. Hamilton has been in the hospital
on Governor's Island, N. Y., since October
last, and for weeks has been given tonics
to aid him in regaining strength, and also
chloral and ergot to superinduce sleep. His
friends further maintain that there is a direct
and strong hereditary strain of insanity
on his father's side, which, coupled with
the aberration of Lieut. Hamilton, should
be indisputable evidence that he was irresponsible
through illness, worries and
dangers of his Philippine service at the time
the alleged offenses were committed.
RULING BY COURT.
, Health Officer Must Sign Notices in
An established custom of the health office
has been declared invalid by Judge Kimball
in the Police Court. The decision was rendered
in the case of Andrew Loeffler, Michael
Keane and Nicholas Auth, proprietors
of the abattoir at Benning, charged with
maintaining a nuisance. The court directed
| the Jury to render a verdict of not guilty.
The case hinged on wnetner tee defendants
had been given due notice to abate the
alleged nuisance, as required. The notice
5 which was served on the defendants was
!i signed by the "Sanitary Inspector" and not
by the health officer; and it was explained to
i the court that the custom of the health
1 office was to have all notices signed by Inspectors.
Judge Kimball held, however, that where
8 the law requires a notice by the board of
, health the notice must be signed by the
2 health officer personally, as he is the logical
successor of the board of health.
The ruling was called to the attention of
Health Officer Woodward and It is under;
stood he has taken steps to have the future
notices signed by himself In accordance with
> the decision.

There was presented to President Roosevelt
today by Dr. J. E. Jones, United States
consul at Dalny, a souvenir of the great
fight at 200 Meter Hill, outside of Port Arthur.
The gift was one of the Russian service
rifles in excellent condition and was found
in one of the rifle pits on the side of the
hill. The pit, like the other rifle
pus, nau oeen roofed over with a steel
plate, but it and the boulders in front
of it had been- destroyed by a shell and
the sharpshooter inside had been shot
through the eye. The skeleton of the soldier
was still grasping the rifle when' it
In speaking of the scene on the hillside.
Dr. Jones said it was one of the most perfect
military situations Imaginable. The
rifle pits overlooked tlie military road running
from point to point of the fortifications.
Each pit was faced at the front
with boulders and was covered with a steel

died, for they never surrendered. There
\J*re little zigzag paths running from pit
to pit, and along these provisions were
brought under cover of the night. The
marksmen did their own cooking, and in
the pit where the gun was found- there was
a- little Russian cooking lamp, a pile of
expended shells and another pile of fresh
ammunition. The Russians at this point
were only 3,001) strong, but they had managed
to kill oft 15,OW Japanese before the
hill was taken and they were forced to fall
back on Port Arthur.
Ohio Negro Appointment.
Senator Dick of Ohio had a long talk with
the President today, and the supposition
naturally was that the aii-absorbing question
of the appointment of a colored man to
a high federal office in the state was under
discussion. Representatives Southard and
Burton also saw the President, possibly on
the same subject. None of them want the
appointment in their locality and the President
was assurred the appointment would
be "a grave political mistake." There is not
much doubt felt, however, that the appointment
will be made in spite of the feelings
of the whole Ohio delegation, most of whom
have been at the White House fighting the
suggestion for a week past. The colored
vote in Ohio is large and it is thought the
President intends to give them recognition.
The most remarkable feature of all the
Ohio visits today was that the colored appointment
was not mentioned, so said the
callers. Senator Dick came in response to
a summons from the President to talk over
the proposed Increase of 20 per cent lp the
pay of army officers. The President is in
favor of the measure and wants to see it
made a law. The other Ohio callers all
were on matters of ''purely personal import."
Senator Hey burn of Idaho was at the
White House today in connection with the
land bill. He talked over the situation with
the President with a view to seeing whether
there could be specific legislation passed at
the present session covering some of the
more Important points In conserving th?
public lands of the west, -le said after the
conference that while the time was too
short for the passage of a general and comprehensive
land bill, he felt sure that some
leeislation would hf? pnarted. Tho Prpsldpnt
is particularly interested in the conservation
of coal lands, and there may be some
action looking to the institution of a temporary
lease measure, but general legislation
will almost certainly have to wait for
the new session.
Land 011 South Side of the Avenue.
Senator Heyburn thinks that the chances
are good for the passage of his bill appropriating
JIO.OOO.OOO for the purchase of the
land south of Pennsylvania avenue and between
the Treasury and the Capitol. This
is a matter that lias of course been mooted
for many years, and there is little doubt
that the title of the land will eventually
have to pass to the government, as the
ground will be wanted for public buildings
more than for parks, the Mall, lying directly
to the south furnishing all the breathing
space that is needed in the neighborhood.
It is realized that the ground can be
bought now for a great deal less than it will
be held for in a few years, and Senator Heyburn
thinks it will be In the interests of
economy to appropriate the money for the
purchase now and to fix the price, giving
the present occupants possession till the
land is wanted for actual government use,
when they would have sufficient notice in
which' to select new locations and move
without disarranging their business.
Sanatnr Wpvhnrn said that he felt tol-.
erably confident that the bill would pass
at the present session, but that If it did
not he was ready to introduce it again at
the next session, when he was sure It
would be put through.
AFTER FURNITURE TRUST.
Government Investigation of Charges
Begins in Chicago.
CHICAGO, February 7.?The government's
efforts to loosen the grip whic.h the so-called
furniture trust has on the school houses,
churches and theaters of the country will
begin today. Among the witnesses summoned
are men who claim to have been
forced out of business, as well as former
employes of the combine who are willing I
to tell of its Inner workings.
The government will seek to show that
while there may be several apparently distinct
firms making school, church and theater
seats and furnishings, they really constitute
one gigantic combine, f his, accordbig
to government witnesses, is by means of
a "gentleman's agreement."
The charge made by the government,
based on reports of investigations of the
Department of Commerce and Labor, which
have been turned over to the Department
of Justice, is that a sort of pool exists
among the furniture men. Thus, when some
school board advertises for bids on
school furniture the various concerns get
together and vote to see which one shall
pay the bonus required by the trust for the

as the proper one to be given the
contract Axes the price it will submit in its
bid. The bids of the other concerns are
then pat in at a higher figure, on the understanding
that the lowest bid will get the
contract. The bonus is then divided among
the "unsuccessful" bidders. ?
Bishop O'Oorman Here.
Bishop O'Oorman of Sioux Fails today
