Gerat Grandson of the Noted Commo dore Decatur Disgraced by the De scendant of Nnpoleon Secretary De clares That No Other Course Was Open to the Department -Decatur Found Guilty of Countenancing Han lug at the Naval Academy. Washington, Jan. 25. Stephen Deca tur, great-grandson of Commodone De catur, first class United States naval academy, was to-day summarily ex pelled from the navy by Secretary Bon aparte in conformity with the sentence of the court martial' In his case, on the charge of hazing. Decatur was acquitted of the charge of hazing under the law of 1878 on his first trial and was afterwards convicted on similar testimony on the charge of "participating in or encouraging of countenancing" the practice of hazing under the law of March, 1903. His coun sel contended tirnt his second trial was illegal and void. In the memorandum of the case, Sec retary Bonaparte says: "In this case, the accused has been tried by a court martial convened by the superintendent of the United States naval academy on two charges, namely, 'hazing In violation of an act of con gress approved June 23, 1874.' To sus tain this charge there were two specifi cations, namely, 'encouraging or coun tenancing the practice of hazing in vio lation of an act of congress approved March 3, 1903.' "To sustain this charge there was one specification, the court found all of the specifications sustained except as to one word In the specification under the second charge and the accused guilty of both charges, and recommended the dismissal of the accused from the naval academy. The superintendent of the naval academy approved the proceed ings and findings of the court martial, so far as these related to the first charge and the specifications thereun der, and also the recommendation of the court. Ho disapproved the proceed ings under the second charge for a de fect of procedure therein, although holding that the findings was In accord ance with the testimony adduced. "The department concurs with the judge advocate-general in holding that the disapproval of the action of the court undeT-tli6 ccosid charge by the superintendent of the United States naval academy renders it unnecessary to consider questions which would oth erwise arise in connection with the find ing of the court-martial on the said charge and the specification thereun der. Upon this portion of the record, therefore, the department makes no comment. (Continued on Eighth Page ) AUTO RACKS AT ORMOND. Only Two Yesterday Cheerless Weath er and High Tide.
