A riot on the Strand this afternoon, in which Amer ican soldiers and sailors and some Australians engaged, resulted in three or four of the Americans being injur ed In a police baton charge. Sevenjof the Americans were arrested. . impossible to reconcile the almost un animous view of soldiers in the field or theatre of war, on the gravity of these and many other lesser offenses by their comrades. Therefore, the exe cution of not one sentence of death for these things has been approved by me, and not one such sentence has been executed. Also heavy sentences have been reduced comprehensively and uni formly. But even with tha-t said, I can neither condemn the 100.000 officers and men who assessed the sentences, nor the law of congress, nor the sys tem under that law that made them possible. "I come now, with the utmost re luctance, to a few distasteful para graphs of personal vindication. Mv motives and my actions have been at tacked and I have been advertised as having hampered the efforts of General Ansel!. I have been set off against him as reactionary. Reviewing his efforts to obtain a complete revision of the old military code, which finally were successful in 1916, General Crowder said: "During much of this time. General Ansell was one of the most promising and trusted officers in my office. During all the time that the code was in revision, he never suggested to me nor, so far as 1 can learn, to anyone else, any of the changes he is suggest ing now. He participated in preparing the manual for courts martial, which was based upon the new code, but he advanced none of these new views. Was not Advised. "Indeed, the first time that I was ad vised of such a view was in November, 1917, on the occasion of his present ing to you, not through me, and entirely without consulting me the first of the elaborate briefs about which so much has been made. "It has been charged that as a, re sult of that brief, an order designating him as acting judge advocate genera! was revoked, and further that he was relieved from his duties as supervis ing the administration of military just ice. Nothing could be further from the truth. He was never relieved from his duties supervising the administra tion of military justice, except to take a trip to France which he was eager to do. "But I deem it unnecessary to enter this field of accusation further and discuss the many issues of fact which have been rained, as I am informed that the inspector general of the army has been designated to conduct a thor ough investigation, and make all the ascertainment of facts that are neces sary to elucidate the administration of military iustice during the trar ner- iod."
