I The Washingion Star a staunch re- f I publican and generally administration I paper, thus deals with the committee j lieport on fhe Brownsville affair and '. i the recommendation for the reenlist- ; inent of the members of the discharged ; ! colored batallion under certain condi- tions: . j "The character of these findings ! confirms the Star in its belief of the , j unwisdom and injustice of the orig- i inal wholesale discharge. This action, i it seems, is to be justified only on the I j theory that it is better that a whole batallion of possibly innocent men ; should suffer than that a dozen or a score o. possibly guilty men should esca M-. 1 lie injustice of the proce 1- . 1 ii i v. ill l.e emphasized when congress j at the instance of the committee and of the president attempts to make reparation to that part of the batallion : which has been ditrraded thoughton- i cededly innocent. Those who can prove j that they are innocent are to be rein stated, But how is any individual sol dier to prove this to the satisfaction of those who ale convinced that some of the soldiers are guilty? It has been found impossible to prove that any individual is guilty. The sworn testi mony of the soldier that he Is innocent and that he dots not know who is guilty, and that he is not by silence protecting the guilty, has not been ac cepted as proof of innocence. If it is not thus accepted when coupled with complete absence of evidence of indi vidual guilt, how is the innocent sol dier to prove his innocence? And if accepted, what is to prevent the re enlistment of the whole batallion? If any of the soldiers are murderers and perjurers, as accused, would they hesi tate in self-protection to add another perjury to their offenses and to swear to their innocence along with the in nocent? "The separation of the. guilty from the innocent should have btjen made by the government before the inflic tion of punishment, and not be im posed after indiscriminate punishment as a burden upon the innocent under conditions which seem to render this separation and reparation for the in nocent practically Impossible." The Washington Herald (independi ent) on the same subject says: "The upshot of the Brownsville In quiry, aS shown by the various reports submitted to the senate, is a unani mous agreement that justice requires the reinstatement in the army of. a certain proportion of the discharged members of the Twenty-fifth Infanary. Senator Foraker believes all of them innocent of any part in the "shooting up" of Brownsville. The majority re port convicts from eight to twenty of them of actual complicity in the affair, and considers it reasonably certain that an additional though unknown number must have had guilty knowledge of it,, but admits that "while the proof is abundant and conclusive that mem bers of the Twenty-fifth Infantry were the perpetrators of this unprovoked at tack, the evidence fails to identify the particular soldier, or soldiers, who participated in the affray.' Mr. For aker undoubtedly states the truth when he says, in his report, that 'whatever may be the fact as to who did the shooting, many of the men discharged were innocent of any offense in con nection therewith;' but this has been acknowledged from the beginning, and it is the one fact upon which every body, from President Itoosevelt to the senator from Ohio, is in full accord. "Inasmuch as a certain proportion of the discharged soldiers were innocent of any wrongdoing, it follows that the discharge pt these men did them an in justice which ought to be repaired, Ifi possible; and in this opinion Mr. j nocence of applicants for reinstate Roosevelt concurs with Senator For- ment is precisely that which confront aker. But how is the wrong to be un- j e() him in determining the guilt of done? If there is no evidence to show j those who 'shot up1 Brownsville, either the guilt or innocence of any j -'Senator Foraker's bill for the re particular -individual, as the majority . enlistment of the discharged men, we report alleges, how shall the president think solves this difficuiiy. It pro satisfy himself that any discharged ; vides for their reinstatement in the soldier applying for reenlistment had ! army upon making oath that they had no participation-iii or guilty knowledge ! no part in the Brownsville affair, that of the Brownville affair, as is provided I they knew of no soldier who did have in the committee bill for the relief of ' part in it, and that they are withhold- the dismissed men? Or how shall the , ine no information with respect to it. president arrive at a judgment that the applicant 'shall appear not to be within the class whose discharge was deemed necessary in order to maintain the discipline and morals of the army.' which is the condition of reenlistment But this is just the sort of evidence which the war department and the president have heretofore refused to accept. General Garlington, whose original recommendation for the dis- miss;J of the black batallion was ac- suggested in Mr. Roosevelt's message? ! cepted by the president, would not be On November 5, 1306, when he issued lieve the negro soldiers under oath, his famous order of dismissal, the will the president believe them? If president believed that the discharge o , not, where does he fxpect them to get the entire batallion w ithout honor was ' evidence of their innocence?" necessary to maintain the discipline j . o and mora4s of the army. It was neces sary, he thought, because it was im possible to separate the innocent from the guilty. Since then, 6o00 pages of evidence have been taken, not one item of which goes to show the guilt of any particular individual. Nor is there forgery.
