The Journal says In part: "it ti certain, that military men havo been left frco to express nt least their complimentary opinions of others, oven to tho extent of publishing reso lutions of approval and tho presenta tion of various tangible tokens of es teem. If a different rule Is to prevail in tho futuro and a moro severe penal ty is to bo Imposed than tho one ap parently intended, It would seem thnt Boino moro appropriate method might bo found for making tho fact known than by tho open rebuke through tho public press by a clvlllnn secretnry of an officer of long and distinguished servlco, who by vlrtuo of his position represents tho honor nnd dignity of tho military service.
