Leverett M. Kelley. Bcaond deputy
commlEsloner of the Pension Office,
went out of offlce today as the result
of the House Democrats falling to
provide salary for the office he1 hus
held for the past fifteen years.
As a token of the love and esteem
In which he Is held by the employes
of the Pension Office, hundreds of the
clerks shook hands with the deputy
commissioner and expressed their sor
row at seeing him go. He was pre
sented with a handsome bunch of
American- Beauty roses, orchids, lilies,
and other flowers. In addition to this
he was given a valuable suitcase.
These gifts were pluced on Captain
Kelley's desk early this morning us a
pleasant surprise when he came to
work. From 9 o'clock until noon his
office was crowded with Ills officials
and employes, all wishing him a God
speed. The Democrats, following out their
declaration to economize, provided
only for one deputy commissioner after
the first of September.
Captain Kelley was born In Schenec
tady, N. Y., September 28, 1841, and was
educated In the county schools there
and also at Blerolt (Michigan) College.
From Blerolt he went to Illinois and ut
the outbreak of the civlt war enlisted

"Volunteers, serving as a corpora), ser
geant, first lieutenant and captain. He
distinguished himself at the battle of
Missionary Ridge, when as a sergeant
he led a charge over me Dreasiwoino
of the Confederates.
In 1S67, 186S and 1874, he was sheriff of
Kane county, Illinois, and In 1878 was
made Indian agent at Standing Rock
and Los Pines leservatlons, In which
capacity he consummated an Impoitant
treaty with the Indians of that section.
He became a division chief at the
Pension Office In 1889, and In 1897 was
madfe second deputy commissioner In
which capacity We has been until today.
In speaking of the future, Capt. Kel
ley said: "I hate to leave my good
friends here. It makes me sad to
part with them. As to future plans
I probably will go Jnto the real estate
business in Washington, but before do
ing this I will spend a few weeks on
my plantation In Elgin, Illinois."

ATLANTA, Ga., Aug. 31. Senator A.
O. Bacon, of Georgia, today scathingly
criticised President Taft for ordering
American boldten to Nicaragua. Ho
denounced Tcft'M order as "contrary to
the Constitution and without any au
thority of law."

marines and armed sailors Into Nlcar-1!

luw. but absolutely In violation of the
luw," said Senator Bacon.
I "Of course It Is recognised that under
certain circumstances sman Domes oi

country, for Instance, to protect Ameri

ferent matter from sending an army

why not 30,000 or 40,000 or any greater
number? The larger force could be Bent
by him with .equal propriety anu jua
tlttcatlon into some other country, Mex
ico for Instance. Thoro Is-just as much
authority for the President to send 60,
000 soldiers into Mexico as to Bend 3,000
men Into Nicaragua.
"If such action Is really necessary
then It is the duty of tho President to
report the matter to Congress and
have Congress authorize tho movement,
that duty 1b vested in Congress by the
Constitution ana not to mo i'rcsiuenu
"It is a dangerous power to bo exer
cised by any one man and tho Consti
tution carefully denied It to the Presi
dent and vested It in Congress alone.
"In Nicaragua, I have no doubt, tho
whole proceedings la in the interest of
some American capitalist, who have
loaned money to the existing govern
ment and who would lose their money
should tho government be overthrown.

tigating committee and the whole mat
tor will be sifted from top, to bottom."

Following a conferencu with Senor
Martin Rlvero, Cuban minister to Wash

that this country has made a nnai ulti

The State Department takes tho posi

The American legation at Havana is
In possession- of tho facts In the caBe,
but could hardly take tho Initiative In

A high official of tho department again
pointed out today that even in China
before tho Christian era, and even
among tho savage Indians there was a
code of honor which prohibited the de
famation of character and vituperation
of peaceful envoys. Mr. Gibson Is being

Worrying the Republicans.
What to do about the growing strength
of the now purty Is giving worry to
the Republican managers even mor.i
than to the Democratic. In New Yoilt
and New England, It is especially noted
that working people, those of foreign
birth, and the mass of smaller business
men tend moro and more decidedly to
ward tho Progressive parly. Those
same elements are even Btronger for
the Progresslye cause In tho West.
The Taft people expected that Pen
rose's story about tho campaign fund
of 1901 would greatly strengthen th
"regular" cause. It hasn't. Instead, It
has produced tho Impression that Roose
velt Is the onu man whom tho pcoplb

llected by expressions of tl)u great
