That Delaware Fine Incident "Will
Pons Unnoticed.
Tho Spanish Legation is not likely to
make any complaint to this government
Willi reference to the action of the studcnt-i
at New Castle, Del., a few days ago, who
destroyed a Spanish flag. There is no
Spanish counsul at New Castle and the In
cident, to that extent, was robbed of any
official character.
Moreover, both the Spanish and Ameri
can Governments have readied so perfect
an understanding witli reference to cir
cumstances of this character that lltt1-.
ir any Importance is attached to them. It
was said at the State Department yester
day that ir a Spanish flag displayed from
a Spanish consulate or warship had been
offered an Indignity ttie attention of the
Slate Department would be at once di
rected to the matter and a suitable apology
It is regarded as not unlikely that the
"Jingo" press of Spain may attempt to
magnify the Incident but there is excellent
authority for the statement that it will
receive no orflcial attention either at the
hands of the American or Spanish author

Inspector General's Keport Speaks
"Well of the Service.
The report of Gen. J. C. Breckinridge,
Inspector General of the Army of the United
states, made public yesterday, speaks
highly of the Army as being in as gcod
condition in respect to instruction, dis
cipline, equipment and supplies, as ever
before In Its history-
Considerable attention, heays, haB ceen
given to minor tactics and training In the
field, which under the present shcrt service
term have become more pressing.
Ho states his opinion that the gi owing
improvement in the quality of Ihe joung
men entering the Army has not abated in
the least.
Much ot the rest of the report consists of
Jetails not generally interesting, but he
especially iiotkes the advances made In
cavalry drill.
Tho number or enlisted men who de
serted during the year was 1,070, an aver
age of 14,b per post. The 1'aUric dis
trict has tho least general average, 3.-1
per cent, and the North Atlantio the great
est, 6.1 per cent. Of the three military
posts tuning the largest number of de
sertions during the year, viz. Fort Warren,
Mass., Fort Itlley, Kaus., and Fort Mason,
Cat., it will be noted that the location of
two of them Is adjacent to large cities and
theother one is In a thickly populated coun
try. The scope of both the theoretical and
practical military instruction appears to
have been more comprehensive than in any
preceding year, and with promising efforts
toward further Improvement. In the cav
alry instruction in Individual horsemanship
has received general attention. Thecourse
ot equitation as picscribed In tho cavalry
drill regulations Is being more thoroughly
and more extensively applied than ever
bcrorc. Wherever proper facilities exist
this instruction has progressed systemati
cally, witu reasonable success. The good
results are evidenced In the better horse
manship or the individual soldier, and im
provement In the training ot the cavalry
The lyceums and non-commissioned offi
cers' schools have been carried on in ac
cordance with iho regulations and orders.
The orders of department commanders have
been noticeably full, exacting, and detailed,
and their personal interest and attention
have greatly developed, systematized, and
perfected both drill and practice, such as
