The statement of General Miles before the Senate Committee on Military Affairs, as it will appear in tho official records, was made public to night. The features which caused some thing of a sensation when published the day the statement was made, especially that relating to General Miles's resigna tion, do not appear, and tho following colloquy at the close of the hearing ex plains it: Mr. Pettus: "Mr. Chairman. I think there ought to be some mode of having these notes revised." The Chairman: "That will be done." Mr. Pettus: "The report of the pro ceedings should be submitted to General Miles with permission to strike out such portions as ought not to be published." Mr. Proctor: "That is It." General Miles: "I do not know that there is anything to be stricken out " "The Chairman: "We have been In the habit of submitting to the witness before tho committee, whoever he was, the sten ographer's report of his remarks for cor rection, of course." Mr. Pettus: "I wanted to go further than that. The stenographer has no doubt tak en down correctly what the General has said, but there are some things he said which he may desire to strike out. and I think he should be allowed that privilege." The Chairman: "Ho must be the Judge of that." -ur. rrai: nt snouia oe allowed tne liberty of striking out anything which ought ,' not to be published, even if it is stated correctly in the report." Closely Follow 'Written Statement. The stenographer's report was submitted to General Miles, and the official report In dicates that he followed closely the written statement he had prepared and read to the committee. The main facts of the General's opposition to the War Department staff bill were given at the time. Some of the fea tures of the statement, however, not re ported at the time are of interest. Concern ing the Inspector General's department, ho said: "In the bill under consideration It is pro posed to abolish enUrely the corps of in spectors who have been most instrumental in keeping the army up to its high char acter and efficiency and in discovering de falcations, inefficiency and maladministra tion, and, on the other hand, in encouraging and reporting meritorious conduct, efficiency and ability In all the different commands and departments of the service." Further along. General Miles said of the bill: "It Is centralization of the most pro nounced type, augments the power of the staff, and in effect removes it further from, touch with the fighting force of the army. "Tho scheme is revolutionary, casts to the winds the lesions of experience and abandons methods which successfully carried us through the most memorable war epochs of our history. .The proposed plan is but an effort to adopt and foster. In a republican form of government such as ours, n system pecu'iarly adapted to monarchies having immense standing armies. It would seem to Germanize and Ruslanlze the small army of the United States." Exncrie-nee In Rpnntah War. General Miles said that before the "Span ish War becan he called on President Mc Kinley and that when the President said he supposed the army was ready, he (General Miles) replied: "The army, ns far as the personnel is con cerned, is ready for any service-, but there is much to bo done In the way of equip ment, and the defenso of the coast which ought to be supplied at tho other end of the Capitol." Tho President, he added, consulted mem bers of Congress, and the tSO.OOO.OCO defense fund was voted. In addition to that portion of the state ment heretofore published showing how th President could, by promotions, make a Captain Chief of Staff with the grade of Lieutenant General. General Miles said: "It serms to me you are throwing tho door wide open for a future autocrat or a military despot. It Is not. In my Judgment, In accordance with tho principles and the ory of democratic government, and for the nest Interests of the army, which has ex- istea morn man n nunarea years ana lui filled all your requirements, to adopt such a scheme."

The bequests to the servants, including the J2.M0 and $1,500 legacies, ero free from lnhezitanco tax charges. Mr. Smith was one of the principal Sjr comes under the provisions of the inherit ance tax law, which requires a certain per cent of the estate to be paid for State educational purposes. The provision In Mr. Smith's will, freeing the legacies of the servants from the tar, throws the burden on tho rest of tho estate of paying the whole tax. He also willed to Harvard, oil and crayon portraits of his fester parents, to be hung Memorial Hall or Harvard. Ho left $500 to the Smith Library, in Franklin, New Hampshire, and $1,000 to the Bellefontalne Cemetery to have his burial lot kept in order. The will provides that If the residue of ths estate, after tho small legacies have been paid, docs not amount to $450,000, that It bo placed at Interest, until the accumu lations, with the principal, have reached the sum of $430,000, when it Is to be applied for the benefit of the Harvard University. Mr. Smith was one of the principal feat ures in a suit which was tried in the St. Louis Circuit Court years ago to contest the will of his adopted mother, who left the bulk of her estate to him. Her rela tives tried to have tho will set aside, but the court upheld it. BUTLER'S CASE r.'AY BE SHARPLY DEBATED Democrats Likely to Present Mi nority Report Showing Re publican Frauds.

This settles the controversy, and also pre vents Immaculate Conception Church from being abolished. The parishioners will se cure another church as soon as It can be done. The Archbishop will sell the Locust street property as soon as certain legal and other formalities have been gone through. Archbishop Kaln stated yesterday that a member of the committee. In whose name the injunction suit was brought, called on him a few days ago and stated that the parishioners were ready to accept his offer. Tho Archbishop said he had never recog nized the committee, as he had not appotnt ed It. nor had. the Reverend G. D. Power. pastor of the church.
