According to the statements la tho Cin
cinnati newspapers, if Mr. Feder goes to
Cincinnati to ascertain the truth of the
stories published about the alleged es
capade of his wife, lie will jiot have
much trouble lu getting at the bottom
or the af rair. It was stated at his rooms
last night that Mr- Feder had not sturted.
Mrs. Cross is already there, und will do
all she can. to prevent the cube agalu&c
her sen being called in the police court
today. She will pay all charges, and it
is probable Uiat the case will be dlsmlshed.
Cross explains the poR.ses.siou of the $-50
check made payable to his friend, Pforz

wcre.driDkJns togttherjmd had exchanged
coats. It appears that Cross was hale

Cross first met Mrs. Fader at the ticket
broker's office where her friend Davis
was employed, as a .clerk- He seemed
surpcifccd l0 Mrs- Fedor- who had
stopped in w,lth Mrs. Davis to ee her
husband. There w:i apparently dnly a
friendly greeting. Soon Mrs. Feder began
to go out in the afternoon and wuuid not
return until cveuiug. Mr. Davis thought
it was very strange and he soon learned
that Mrs. Feder Jiad been meetiug Cioss
and was accompanying Sum to the races.
He also learned that she had been dining
with lilm, and he came to the conclusion
thathomethlngpughtto be done. He knew
that bhe was acting Injudiciously, and was
going to send, for. her hubband. Then he
thought that would bring notoriety, and he
concluded that he had better teU her to go
to a hotel.
He accordingly took her to the Dennlbon,
where she registered. After that she stiU
continued to meet Cross. Finally Davis be
came alarmpd, and, calling on herrtold her
that she had better go home. He gave her
a ticket Saturday, and bhe said she would
In the meantime Cross was playing the
race(. At rirst he was successful, but it
was the old story, and he soon found that
his "b:.nk roll'' was about gone. Be had
forgotten to pay all his board bill and at
tempted to buy wine on his tab, but was
unsucc-ssful. Then he was presented with
his bill, which amounted to a balance of
$20. He was unabla to payit.andthe clerk
told him be would have to look for another
Toom. He left tho hotel and went to the
Palace, where he registered as A. M.
Leadley, of Washington. The next night
heappearpd with a woman and registered as
A. It. Leadley and wife, of Washington
The woman, so Cross told the police, was
Mrs. Feder, and he said she left Monday
night for Washington.
When Cross was searched at the station
house the following note was found on him:
"Mr. Cross: Meet me at the corner, as I
must see you. Don't keep me waiting. I
will wait at the office until the boy re
turns. "G. F."
This message was written on the letter
head of the messenger company.
Davis, whose homo Mrs. Feder was
visiting, was all broken up ovcrthe affair.
He told, the local press that all he knew
about the matter wasthat helearned that
Mrs. Feder was going out with Cross, and
that he thought it Was best for her to
go home, and he supposed thatshc had gone

Commander Davis, in his long report,
cites the cases investigated and declares
taut he did not find evidence to sustain a
single charge. In commenting on tnia
lepoir, -ut ng secretary Ho--.t-vt'it m
Navy Department, August 11, 1897.
The department fully sustains the con
clusions of Commander Davis as to the
Charges against Mr Bowles. In so rar as
tliey relate to alleged political uifccnmina
tion,or to the appointment of outMdera and
the retention on unworthy in preference to
worthy men, these charges are not only
disproved, but are shown to rest upon
nothing more substantial than malicious
or frivolous gossip; or else upon the belief
of the less competent workmen that they,
and not their superior oKicers, are the
proper Judges of their efficiency.
The attention ot Constructor towles will
be especially called to that part of Com
mander Davis' report warning him as to
being sometimes over-harsh and follow
ing too implicitly the recommendations ot
leadinemeu and quartermen; but it is
evident tnat me real reason iui iuc ai.
tacks uj.on Mr. b'owloa is to be found, not
in the fact that he has done badly, but
tliat he has done well.
Ho has shown great energy and capac
ity in handling men: he has paid heed
bolely to the needs of the Government
work, and has sought to establish a high
standard of etficiency among the laborers
in the yard; he has abnilutely disregarded
all political considerations in appointing
and employing men, and the opposition to
him evidently arises mainly from the fact
that under him for therirs tlma ic has been
impossible to procure the reinstatement or
retention of men guilty of mis-conduct
who possessed political influence.
Tlie evil of occasional n.irsiuies' in dis
clpllne Is trivial compared with the evil
or allowing men to .shirk, or be guiity of
other misconduct, provided they nave po
litical influence; and It Is because ot his
rerusal to permit this that Mr. Bowles Is
The standard ot work in the Brooklyn
navy ynrd has been very appreciably raised
under Constructor Bowles. The complaints
against him have now twice been investi
gated, once by me personally, and once at
great length by Commander Davis.
The Widest latitude baa been given to
everyone who had any acctiEacion whatr
soever to muker and it lb evident that
there Is no foundation whatever for these
charges. There can be no possible ex
cuse for any further investigation, and the
case will not be reopenea.'
As regards the charges made bv the
veterans itr appears tlutt there Is no ground
whatsoever for complaint against Mr.
Bowies, and the testimony of the witnesses
produced tells very strongly in his favor
and incidentally shows that under the la
bor board scrupulous heed is paid to the
rights of veterans.
Uuttn the Departuientor iaidaand Dricks
it does appear that Mr. need, a v-etcran,
was discharged, when Mr. Menocal ad
mits that he was as good as the three nun
veterans who were retained. Mr. Ueed
will accordingly be reinstated, not because
he has any legal claim, for no has none, but
because it is tho policy or the department

The legal rights of the veterans have not
only been cnremlly preserved by the Navy
