RICHMOND DAILY PALL YDI17M, MONDAY, DECEMBER S3. -1901.
CLEAR THE RECORD Ihe Sampson-Schley Incident . Is Now OHicially Ended. aiu: court dissolved Secretary Long- Approves the Find- in? of the Court and Calls the L Whole Thin? Closed. Tresident Roosevelt Publicly Seold Lieut.-Uen. Miles For Talking About the Case. Washington. Dec. 23. Secretary long has disposed finally of the Schley case so far as the navy depart ment la concerned, by acting upon the findings and conclusions of the court of Inquiry. He approves the findings of fact and the opinion of the full court; he approves the majority opin ion where there la a difference In the court; he holds that the could not have entered into consideration of the question of command of the battle of Santiago, and finally lie accepts the recommendation that no further pro ceedings shall be had. The secretary also has declined the application of Admiral Sampson's counsel to enter upon an Inquiry as to the question of command, and has notified Admiral Schley's counsel of that fact as a rea son for declining to hear them on that point. Then, through the president, he demanded the resignation of Edgar 8. Maclay. an employe of the navy department. In whose history of the Spanish-American war Schley is de nounced as a "coward." "caitiff" and "poltroon." The order in regard to Maclay was made public by Secretary Root. The fact that simultaneously With the publication of the Miles cor respondence Secretary Root gave out a copy of Secretary Long's letter di recting that Maclay's resignation be requested, taken in connection with the publication of the final chapters of the Schley case, so far as it has fi puree! before the navy department. Is taken as an indication of the presi dent's purpose to clear the official rec ords of all pending issues in that mat ter. Secretary Root's publication of the Maclay letter is explained by the fact that he left the White House some time after Secretary Long had been there, and thus was in position to carry out the president's latest wish In the matter. Following is the text of the letter sent by Secretary Long to Admiral Dewey dissolving the Schley court of inquiry: "The court of inquiry of which you are the president, convened by de partment's order of July 26. 1901 for the purpose of inquiring into the con duct of Rear Admiral i.aen Commo dore) W. S. Schley. U. S. N., retired, during the recent war with Spain and th? events connected therewith, is this diy dissolved. Yon will inform the o-her members of the court and the ju's" " 'vocate accordingly. "JO'lX D. LONG. Secretary. "To the Admiral of the Navy." Admiral Dewey, in acknowledging the receipt of the secretary's note, said that, in conformity with the or der of the secretary, he had announc ed the dissolution of the court. M.S TAI.KKI) TOO MUCH Anil For This I Season Gen. 31 ilex C.eto scolding. Washington. Dec. 23. A determina tion on the part of the administration absolutely to terminate further dis Vcussion of the Sampson-Schley contro versy took shape in the publication of some remarkable correspondence that has passed between Secretary JKtTTFX XT JFTFWr JFLSOX A. VTLESw Root and Ueutenant General Miles relative to the latter's interview pub lished in a Cincinnati paper comment tag upon the Schley case. When the Interview appeared it attracted con siderable attention officially, but after tne lapse of two days without any Sign of official action, the conclusion became general that the interview would be ignored. The publication of the full correspondence on this sub ject created a sensation in army and naval circles. It is seldom that so eevere a reprimand is administered to en officer of high rank in either ser vice. What the result will be cannot be foretold, although it is assumed that General Miles will submit with out further comment. That General Miles appreciates the situation is shown by the deep con cern he manifested and his frequent visits to the office of Secretary Root. It was necessary for him to write two letters to meet the demands of the department, and even then there was to expression of satisfaction on the secretary's part at the second expla nation. However. Secretary Root ttlmscU regards the incident as closed At least ho does not propose to take any further action unless obliged to do so. The president's attitude in tt matter attracted much attention.' many being witnesses to the scene in tr. White House when General Mil obeyed a summons sent by the pres' dent. General Miles appeared at tb president's reception ani was com pelled to listen to a scold in? whie? probably was more unpleasant th' it would have been to have rvnr?" orders read to the army ceni:r'ng h! conduct in giving an Jn'erv'ew crit' cising a co-ordinate branch of the w ernment.

Dec. 23. Secretary Long's attention having; been caller" again to reports that he contemplate-" resigning from the cabinet, he again said there was not a word of truth in the report. TKKASOS IS CHARGED Civil OTlcer or MisamiH Are Akting the Insurgents. Manila. Dec. 23. General George W. Davis, commanding at Zamboan ga. Island of Mindanao, has requested that the province of Mlsamis, Minda nao, again be placed under m'litaiy control. General Davis has proof thai the recently elected president and vice councillors, and the leading men of Cagayan de Misamis afb guilty of treason in furnishing ammunition to the insurgents within the past month. The fiscal of the province of Misamlf is also implicated. The evidence shows that all these men were members of the secret Kati punan society. General James F. Wade, commanding the Americas forces on Cebu islands, concurs in and indorse the request of General Davis and reviewing the situation in Min danao says he is satisfied that the ends of Justice, peace and good gov ernment will soonest be obtained by the restoration of military control to the province of Mlsamis and the over coming of all resistance to that au thority. It is expected that the United States Philippine commission will refuse this request as they did a sim ilar application made by General Chaf fee concerning the province of Tay abas, Luzon, where the rebels have recently been particularly active.

Every effort to de crease the expenses of the American army in the Philippine islands is hav ing little effect owing to tue increase of army stations, due partly to the ac tivity of the insurgents on the Island of Samar. in Batangas and Tayabas provinces and in other places and also to the establishment of municipal governments in many towns, which has necessitated the sending of troops there to preserve order.
