General Wilson's Opinion of General Wood's Promotion. Washington, Dec. 9.General Jambs H. Wilson. IT. S. A., retired, was on the stand for more than an hour in the Wood investigation before the senato committee on military affairs. He told the committee of his meeting with -Captain E. G, Balla-teo. at Ha vana, saying that he became convinced that liellaire came to Havana with the purpose of wilfully falsifying con ditions in the island that Bellaire called on him at his headquarters in the province of JVIatanzas and that he (General Wilson) then accused Bel laire of writing dispatches which gave a wrong color to affairs in the island and injured the work of,..General Brooke and others. The witness said that Bellaire sighed and admitted that he was standing by his friends, declaring that his position was a necessary one. General Wilson said the remark could have but one meaning and that was that he was backing General Wood, that this was evident from the nature of Bellaire's dispatches. The witness asserted it to be his belief that Bellaire went to Havana for th purpose of promoting the advance ment of General Wood. When asked concerning the rapid strides made by General Wood in jumping over himself, General Lud low and General Lee, the witness showed a feeling of bitterness against General Wood. The effect of the re sponse was that he considered the promotion was one brought about by preferment, rather than warranted by merit. LONG SUIT ENDED. Western Union Wins From Bell Tele phone Company.
