Sensational Testimony Given to the War InveeUa-atova the Commissary General of VA retur Army Regarding the MKmJW,A- balmed Beef" Dispute, f ' Wife Washington, Jan, 13. CommuT. General Eagan yesterday reap!. . before the war investigating cfT eion to answer the charges Miles concerning the commissary sup plies furnished the army during tlhe war. His statement furnished the sensation of the war commission's his tory and was .regarded by old army officers as one of the most remarkable attacks ever made In the history of the service. Eagan's statement to the commis sion was a bitter personal attack up on Gen. Miles so entirely unqualified both as to scope and' language that the war commission on hearing its conclusion ordered a brief executive session, after which the doors were reopened, the witness was recalled and business resumed ' In the usual way. The subject in controversy was Gen. Miles' already famous "embalm ed beef" testimony and the letters and documents supporting it. Gen, Miles had charged t4iat the canned and re frigerated meat sent 'to the army in Cuba and Porto Rico was unfit for use, that it was preserved Iby the use of chemicals, and that it had "been 'bought and sent to the array under pretense of an experiment." This reflection upon iboth the ability and honesty of the commissary de partment angered Eagan and caused him to request to be recalled to reply to Gen. Miles' charges. That his state ments concerning the commanding general were not the result of a sud den outburst of passion was shown by the fact that he read his remarks from carefully prepared typewritten copy. Gen. Eagan's testimony on this point follows: "Gen Miles was asked by your committee how tinned fresh beef became a part of the army ration. His answer is: 'You had better ask the secretary of war or the commissary general. I think they can tell. I know it was sent to the army as food and the pretense is that it was sent as an experiment.' Gen. Miles in say ing that this food was sent to the army as a pretense for experiment says that which implies corruption. "I answer that it was not furnished under the pretense of experiment, nor. even as an experiment, and when Gen. Miles charges that it was furnished a sa 'pretense of experiment' he lies in his throat, he lies In his heart, he lies in every hair of his head and ev ery pore of his body; he lies wilfully, deliberately, intentionally and maH ciously. "If his statement is true' That this was furnished under 'pretense of an' experiment' then I should b' drummed out of the army, and inca cerated in prison. If his statement is fake, as I assert it to be, then . he should be drummed out of the service and incarcerated in prison with other libellers. His statement is a scanda lous libel, reflecting upon the honesty sf every officer in the department who has contracted for or purchased this meat, and especially and particularly on myself. In denouncing Gen. Miles as a liar when he makes this state ment, I wish to make it as emphatic and as coarse as the statement itself. wish to force the lie back into his throat. "I wish to brand it as a falsehood of whole cloth without a particle of truth to sustain it, and unless he can prove his statement he should be de nounced by every honest man, barred the clubs, barred from the society of decent people, and .so ostracized that the street bootblack would not conde scend to speak ' to him, for he has fouled his own nest, he has aspersed the honor of a brother officer1' without a particle of evidence or fact to sus tain in any degree, Ins scandalous, li belous,' malicious falsehood, viz: that this beef or anything, whatever was furnished the army under 'pretense of experiment." -' .. .'.-: ' ' Witness , charged Gen.; Miles with hampering the administration of the war department 'by calling off officers from duty where their presence was absolutely 'necessary. This was the case in taking Col. John Weston away from Cuba to serve with the Porto Rican expedition and in putting Maj. A. L. Smith, a very efficient officer as signed as depot commissary in Porto Rico, to work on ''some transport fluty" when his.services were demand ed on shore. Gen. Eagan said the com manding general went clearly outside his power in doing this and intimated that Gen. Miles was moved to do so by the ignorance and ' Inefficiency of his own appointee, Maj. Black, who Ivas supposed to be the chief commis sary officer on Gen. .Miles' staff. . Gen. Eagan made a vigorous attack on the inspector general's department in connection -with this investigation. He asked why were not these inspec tions made while, the armies were in the fields, nnd said the principal offi cers of this department "took other positions and let, the inspections of the army, which were never needed so much as during the war, go, so far ris thqy were concerned, for personal ag grandizement, as we know they took volunteer rank with increased pay.

The Fourth regu lar infanitry, recruited up io its full strength of over 1,200 men, in com mand of Col.

Hundreds of people gathered at the station at the fort, where the regiment; has been staitlioned so long, and ma.ny affecting scenes were witnessed be tween the blue clad men and the wives and sweethearts they were bidding farewell. The most disconsolate ones were the members of the regimenft whom the fevers and hardships of the Cuban campaign had rendered unfit for tropical service, every one of whom that could stand wading through the mud to see the regiment depart. '.The regiment left Fort Sheridan for the east in three special trains, 42 Pull man and tourist sleeping cars.

' Vancouver, B. C, Jan. 16. The steamship Empress of Japan, from Hong Kong, brought 408 Asiatic steer age passengers, many of whom were low caste Chinese tfoolies. One hun dred B.nd ninety-one of the men were destined for Tampico, Mex. It is stated that they have been engaged under contract to work on plantations and on railway construction by men known as Ma Guien and Ma Luke, both of Hong Kong, for one Ma Gop, of Mexico. According to the statements o,f Vancouver Chinamen, their wages ,re to 'be, sent to their families in Chi na, and they are fo be permitifed to return to China after two years of work. It is stated that Xfa Gop is ar ranging to import 1;300 of these cool ies from Hong Kong. While the first contingent was 'be ing londed into a special train of coaches which was lined along the steamer dock, some Chinese residents of this city created a panic among their newly arrived countrymen by telling them they had been sold into slavery and would never be permitted to return to the Orient. A stampede followed and the officials were obliged to resort to violence in order to check the rush of the men, which was in the direction of the waiter, A score of them were knocked down with clubs and the crowd was only stopped in time to prevent its plunging over the docks. A number of the celestials got away from the officials and were se creted in Vancouver. Searching par ties started in pursuit of them and it was not until night that the last was corralled. The Chinese here say that the men have been sold for from $500 to $1,000 and that tihey will never be permitted to return to China. ' RAILWAYS AT WAR. Rival Roads .TIlx It Up In a Fight for a Swtch.

Dingley, sons of the deceased; James C. Hooe, an intimate friend of the family; Dr. Deale, one of the physicians who has been extending him throughout his illness, and the two nurses. To within a few hours before his death the fam ily firmly believed, as it has through out his illness, that Mr. Dingley would recover. Mr. Dlngley's illness dated back to December 29, when he complained that he was not well. The physician diag nosed his case as one of grip, and cau tioned the patient to keep to his room.

The funeral will be conducted In the house of representatives on Monday next. At 4:20 in the afternoon the funeral party will leave for Lewiston, Me., arriving there Tuesday.

Nelson Dingley, jr., governor of Maine in 1874-75, and member of con gress from the Second congressional district of Maine since 1881, was 'born in Durham, Me., February IS, 1832, the son of Nelson and Jane Lambert Ding ley. . In 1854 his parents moved to Au burn. At 17 he taught a winter school dn the town of China, 14 miles from home, and he continued to teach .win ters while fitting for college,. . Entering Waterville college (now Colby university) in 1851, he remained there a year and a half and then be came a student at Dartmouth college, from which institution he was gradu ated in 1855 with high rank. After leaving college Mr. Dingley studied law in Auburn, and was admitted to the bar. Instead of entering upon the practice of law, he decided to become a journalist, and in 1856 he purchased the Lewiston Journal. In 1861 he was elected representa tive from Auburn to the state legisla ture, In which body he at once took high rank, was re-elected several times and was speaker of the house in 1863. In 1873 Mr. Dingley was nominated as the republican candidate for gov ernor of Maine and was elected by about 10,000 majority. In 1874 he was re-elected. He actively participated In the presi dential campaign of 1876 and in 1881 was nominated by .the republicans of !the Second congressional district to fill the vacancy in congress caused by the resignation of Hon. William P. Frye. He was elected by a majority of over 5,000. i When he entered congress he was made a member of the committee on banking and currency, serving there ;eight years. At the beginning of his congressional career the country was disturbed on the question of the ex tension of nation! bank charters. He immediately ideutlfied himself with a bill for the extension of the charters of the banks' and in the face of much opposition, helped fight the bill through. '. But it is difficult to name any Im portant legislation in congress of the la.tt 15 years with which he was not Identified. His first speech in congress was made April 25, 1882, on "protec tion to American shipping." While he had 'been active in financial matters he was thoroughly informed on ship ping, having come from a state with large shipping interests. Mr. Dingley was not an orator. Ho lacked the physical presence, the de velopment of throat and chest and quality of voice which make men ora tors. None the less. all the members listened when he arose to speak. ..He had a wonderfully lucid way of as serting facts, going at once to the heart of every, contested point, , He also had a remarkable faculty of pre senting an argument. His mind was logical to the highest degree. . ... BItr Copper Combine Formed, i I Chiqago, Jan. 14. The JRecprd says: A gigantic combination in copper was recently, effected ., in.
