Washington, Feb. 8 -Tho report of. tho War InvcstlgntlnJr Commission Is in the bands of the President, and the com? mission Is dissolved. All of the mem? bers of the commission, including the secretary. Mr. Wrlghtman, and the re? corder. Col.

THB PRES1 DENT'l N ST 11UCXKD_ Seated around the Cabinet table, the members wen; over their work in a kcii ertil way. and at the request of the President read portions of their report, which covered certain points In which lie had expressed un interest. Tin.n fcrence lasted about an hour und a half, and us the commissioners were about to leuvc the President stated thai he was sat lulled that each member had done his whole duty. lie. himself, had rendered them every assistance possi? ble, and said thai they would bcor wlt ncss that he had not sought to Influence them in any manner or in th" slight-si dec! c. THE REPORT. The report may be In the hands of the President several days before being given official promulgation, to enable full 1'onsldcrntlon of the document. It conslts of between sixty and ntxty-flve thousand words. The general scope of the report was sent out lssi night and renewed attention was called to-day to the fuel then pointed but Ihnt there wore only two witnesses who made charges against the government in the beef Issue. FAILED TO SUPPORT CHARGES. The report points out that there were numerous allegations made nnd many nttacks in the public prints, but that when those making the nt tacks nnd charges \ ere called on to nppnar before the ? nmmlsslon with their utiitemcnts under oath or otherwise substantiate them they,failed either to appear or furnish proof of vvhdl they had said. It Is hit sted lhal n?l the men who h d made nay ehnrgi i wore off. red the full? est o.'(unity l> ? heard, nnd their statements given full consideration and that every effort had been made to probe the truth lu whatever matters ha I come before their body. THE BAG., N INCIDENT. The Eagan Incident is passed over without material mention, if at all. In view nf General Eagah's revision of the etatemOnt that he originally made to them. The report avoids all questions of the strategy of the war. that being a matte: r >gnrded as outside the fuhc- i lions of the commission. STRICTURES ON MTLCD. The references to General Miles, com? manding the army, are devoted mainly to strictures on his course with refer ence to the beef Issue as covered in h's testimony. in this connection a main paint made. It Is understood, is as n General Miles' failure to take prompt Action In re? port Ing on the beef and Instead wait? ing a lonir period before communicat? ing the facts to til,- Department, and rn< intime, with the information he gave in his p issession nnd his Judg? ment .mi the beef supplies made up. permitting beef he so vigorously con? demned P. bte Issued to the army. The fact that he was the only witness fail? ing to testify upon oath Is referred to. DOES NOT WHITEWASH. In speaking of the n port to-day to a Btnr reporter, n prominent member of the commission said; "The report d.i. s nql whitewash, it criticises, but no persons or things not warranted by the evidence before us. We started out with the assumption that the conduct of tlie war was all rich;, and then we went ahead to hear and call witnesses, who said it was not. The report"represents the honest opinion of every member of the com? mission. We were unanimous iti adopt? ing it. I say this and I am of the opposite political faith and don't expect and don't want anything from the Ad? ministration. PERFECT CANDOR. "There was no suppression or con? cealment nnd no point brought out in the evidence was evaded or glossed over. We never met before hearing a Witness, and agreed not to examine him er touch upon certain matters that might turn out unfavorably. Every? thing lli.it a man knew or thought he knew was the subject of inquiry, and I am satisfied when the country gets our report in full that there will be no complaint either as to our methodrf or results." "The President never saw a line nf our report before be received it offi? cially: not a single word. Nor, Indeed, lias ho ever talked with any of the com? mission about It. lie has never in any way by word of action or message evinced a wish to have us develop any? thing hut the truth or even touched upon the matter of our work. WITNESSES ABUNDANT. "We have questioned more than T>00 witnesses and the majority of them had some complaint they wanted to relate. In no Instance can it be proved that i we have omitted to call any witnesses who have been brought to our atten? tion as having important facts to ills close. Hut liail we desired to ?white? wash' the Administration we could have hud 10.out) witnesses who could truthfully testify that the conduct of the war was all right. "Of course, there were some evils, but they were to be expected. The soldiers in tlie eivli war never had hospitals or medical attendance as good was given them in tho war with Spain. And their army ration then was not as eatalde as It is now. The men who complained the most of the food wo found were very generally the mili? tiamen from the interiors of States, and Who had been allowed $2 per head for subsistence stores while they were in Stute camps. When they went Into the active fighting they expected the same sort ot thing. "In questioning these men nearly till confessed to us that they had always received the army ration. They had no right to expect any more, l could tell some very funny stories to Illustrate this. "There were many complaints brought to us that on their face were foolish and false, hut we went to every trou? ble and expense to Inquire Into every genuine charge." MONEY DUE STATES.
