Navy Department Blames Major
General Elliott for Lack of
Firmness and Irritability
Personal Strife Among Officers
is Result of Clash Between
the Line and Staff
WASHINGTON. July 15.— Personal
strife among officers of the United
States marine corps reached a climax
today when the navy department, as
the result of a court of inquiry, sent
letters of censure to nearly all the of
ficers concerned. No further judicial
proceedings are contemplated.
The censured officers are Major Gen
eral George F. Elliott, commandant of
the corps; Colonel Charles H. Lav-
Khejmer, adjutant and inspector; Colonel
Frank I* Denny, quartermaster at
Washington; Colonel Charles A. Doyen,
commanding the marine barracks at
the naval academy at Annapolis; Lieu
tenant Colonel Thomas C. Prince, as
sistant quartermaster at Washington;
Lieutenant Colonel Henry C. Halnes,
assistant adjutant and inspector at
Washington, and Major Louis J. Magill
and Major David D. Porter, assistant
adjutants and inspectors »at Philadel
phia and Washington, respectively.
The court held that General Elliott
feed been profane. Irritable and iras
cible at times, indulging moderately in
Intoxicating liquors, "l-tut never intoxi
cated on duty, and sometimes failed to
treat subordinates with courtesy, but'
xr&s usually polite, generous, truthful
fend a "plain, blunt soldier, open and
frank/* General Elliott was paid a
tribute by the court for telling the
•whole truth, "even to his own detri
ment," If he thought the facts had the
least bearing on the question.
"He was suspicious." added the court,
•'of the adjutant and inspector, his as
sistants and some others and unjustly
believed they were trsing to drive him
from office.
"What added greatly to his irritability
T3s a disease of the right ear, which
infirmity does not appear to have been
generally known to his subordinates.
He worked for the good of the service
and accomplished much, but failed to
<jnaintain discipline at headquarters and
to enforce proper respect for himself in
Colonel Lausheimer, according to the
court, had violated the spirit but not the
letter of the regulations requiring subor
dination and loyalty, had been unmili
tary, disrespectful and Insubordinate
fend* had made general instead of spe
cific reports against his superior officer.
But on the other hand. Colonel Lau
sheimer was declared to be a capable
and efficient offirer and one who was
frequently consulted by General Elliott.
Colonel Lausheincer has been on his
present duty since December. 1904.
Among other things he was charged
with evincing a disinclination to assist
the court in ascertaining the facts, ex
cept in his own interests, though he an
swered specific questions.
Colonel Denny was held to have in
tentionally evaded answering questions
on a subject of which he had full
knowledge. As to Colonel* Doyen, the
court found that he showed a remark
able failure to display the proper re
spect and subordination due to his.

The court found generally that the
aifHculties had arisen from a radical
difference of policy between General
Elliott and Colonel Lausheimer through
the former's lack of firmness and a too
long tenure of office of men in the*
adjutant's, inspectors* and quartermas

of subordination and military ethics

who has been studying the folklore
and traditions of the Eskimo of north
ern Labrador, has returned, from St.
Johns, N. F., with a notebook full of
observations taken in the year he spent
in the north. Professor Verbeck says
he found the Eskimos intelligent and
little affected by contact with the
Most of their myths have been pre
served. Instead of having a man in the
moon they have a girl. One of their
young warriors, according to the
legend, became angry with his sister,
ran at her to box her ears and she fled.
Finally she got to the edge'of a preci
pice and he thought he had her then.
But her momentum was so great that
instead of stumbling off she shot right
out into space. The brother gazed at
her and finally saw her_ land right in
the middle of the moon.
Professor Verbeck has- brought j back
many other interesting traditions of
the little brown folk.

Large Fortune Amassed; by
of California's Old Time
Ebenezer H. Dyer, : father, of the beet
sugar industry in the United States and
the first man to. successfully 'manu
facture that commodity in this country,
died at his residence at Alvarado, Ala
meda county, early yesterday morning,
aged SS years. He leaves an "estate
estimated at. $11000,000. chiefly in; sugar
stock and real estate holdings; in Ala
meda' and ; the Santa Clarar valley, s . to
be equally "divided among his widow
and fiix t children., ;, ',
Born 'in Sullivan, Me., April 17, v 1822,
Dyer came to California with the early
rush of 1557, crossing the continent" via
the isthmus route. . He: settled invAl
varado, Alameda county, and ,in 1859
was elected county surveyor. In 1861
he was re-elected to 'that position and
in'the same year' was appointed to/the
position of United States deputy sur
veyor by President Lincoln. He con
tinued, in thfs position for \ 10 years, ;but
in 1869 became interested in the! beet
sugar industry. V. . ''
2 Prior r to this several others had at
tempted to originate the industry/Mn
the United' \u25a0 States without > success.
Dyer, however, took it- up and in, 1870
established the first beet sugar plant
in the country and until'lo years agoi
when his failing eyesight
the passing "of his businesSjOver to his
sons, \u25a0 he remained at ; the head
of it: The concern is no w " known -' as
the Alamedtt" sugar, company. Apart
from his business -.> he \ took an active
interest in politics and -in 1576 was a
delegate to the national republican con
vention. Later in life he engaged, in
company with his three. sons, in the
business of "erecting beet- sugar plants,
and some of the biggest plants in the
country* were built'by ..them"/- \u25a0;'
Dyer married Marion W. Ingals' of his
native town in 1857. 'There were, three
children by this uhion— Mrs. Abitha
M. Musoh of Tacoma, Ellen F. Dyer and
Edward F. Dyer of Cleveland. . -Mrs;
Dyer died in 1563.'. Her twin' sister,
Olive Ingals, later became Dyer's sec
ond wife. There were three children
by ,this second- marriage— Hugh • T.
Dyer of Ogden; Guy S. Dyer of Alva
rado,and Mrs. Nina Washburn of San
Francisco. Mrs. Dyer survives her hus
band. She was present at his bedside
when he died, as were all of his chil
dren. \u25a0 tr
The exact manner in which the estate
is divided is not; known, but it is gen
erally thought to be in equal shares.
The three sons are named as executors
and Samuel -J.Poonnan Jr. is the-at
torney. :\u25a0 - . ' .''"".
