The Admiral Charfeed With Neglect
l»y the General.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 30.— Something
sensational is promised from Gen.
Shatter, who is highly incensed over
the statements made by Admiral Samp
son in, regard to the Joint naval and
military operations at Santiago.
The navy department several weeks
ago gave out many reports submitted
to Secretary Long by Admiral Samp
son. They dealt fully with the ques
tion of the relations between the fitteiy
and navy and contained a number of
assertions to which Gen. Shafter has
taken exception.
Gen. Shafter has been prevented by
his> regular duties and social engage
ments from making a report which
offers an explanation of his attitude
toward the navy, but he has completed
this statement now and has sent it to
Secretary Alger. His desire is that it
shall be given out to the newspapers,
but it is couched in such strong terms
and is so manifestly of a personal na
ture that it will probably be revised be
fore it is made public.
Much interest is taken in the Shat
ter statement, which denies all of Ad
.rniral Sampson's assertions and sup
ports the denial with affidavits.
It is charged by Gen. Shafter that
Admiral Sampson failed to carry out
his part of the programme as agreed
upon at a conference attended by Shaf
ter, Sampson, Garcia and their respec
tive aids.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 31.— Two com

Fourth infantry, which has been or

infantry will be badly scattered, one
company being ordered to Fort "Crook,
one to Columbus Barracks, one to Fort
Snelling, which is to furnish a detach
ment for Walker; and one- to Fort Jef
ferson barracks, besides the two eo)n
panies at Fort Sheridan. Four com
panies will remain at Forts Brady and
Wayne, Mich., for the present, but fur
ther inroads will be made in the near
future on the garrisons at those two
posts. Orders scattering this regiment
were issued by the secretary of war,
and the companies go to the stations
assigned them to relieve the regiments
stationed there. These regiments will
proceed to the Philippine islands, where
they may have serious work to per
form before the men return to their
native land.

receipts and expenditures will show
that, during the half year ending to
day, the receipts aggregated $245,861,

From tttre New York*J*»#na].
The day after Christmas was the
birthday of George Dewey, who was a
naughty little boy.^e defied his school
teacher and insiste^upon going to sea
when his father jilted him to be a
soldier. Yet he will receive many
Christmas and birthday gifts, for be
fore he reaches his present age, sixty
one years, he became very good and
very distinguished, and an admiral.
Cafes and chewing, gum were named
for him.
His relatives themselves tell what a
bad boy was this? gajat admiral, and
have put their tilee ; into print, and
have bound the prf&tied pages into a
big book that will b«rlssued very soon
after the birthday. The relatives have
formed the Dewey Publishing company
to issue and circulate the book.
Up to Montpelier, Vt., where George
Dewey was when small, the youngsters
had to find their pastimes in their own
games and sports. As a small boy
George developed his strength by fierce
activity in skating and swimming and
running. On the day of the meeting
of the legislature, when crowds throng
ed to the capitol city and the boys
feasted on gingerbread and sweet"
cider, the stalwart boys and young
men of the several towns represented
competed in athletic sports. The Dew
ey boy was a participant in these con
tests, and always gained the victory.
At the swimming pool in the Winooski
(or Onion) river near his home, he ex
cited the wonder of smaller boys and
the envy of boys of his own age by
staying under water longer than any
other of the swimmers.
At the district school he was a lead
er as much as in the river or on the
lakes. But he was the kind of leader
that teachers dreaded and trustees
feared. He was the foremost among
three, stronger and larger than most
of the other pupils, who gave their
best energies to provoke the distress
of their teacher. Several instructors
suffered from the three bad boys, and
discipline waned until to the school
came a stout young man fresh from a
college campus, Z. K. Pangborn; now
a resident of Jersey City, where for
years he has edited a newspaper.
The meeting of the new teacher and
the worst of his pupils, "that Dewey
boy," as he was palled by the neigh
bors, was significant of trouble. Dewey
was in a tree, "from which he was
throwing stones at passing boys, some
of them, if not all, smaller than him
self. The teacher told him to stop
throwing stones, as such conduct could
not be tolerated.
"Oh, you go to hell," answered George
Dewey, thus early showing that fine
sense of repartee that later found ex
pression in the famous remark to
Prince Henry of Prussia.
The tea-cher kept his temper and
waited for hostilities from the other
Bide. They came. Even at twelve
years of age <3eorge Dewey did not
wait for an opponent to begin an at
tack. He formed his companions into
a company, laid in a store of ammuni
tion in the form of frozen snowballs,
stored it in a meeting house near the
echool and deployed his force with
other snowballs along the road. When
the teacher was walking home he was
attacked first by the snowballs hurled
at close range, then by the flsts and
the elbows of the boys. "That Dewey
boy" was on the back of the school
master trying to throw him down.
The result was not decisive, but the
teacher had to retreat, and the boys
held the field.
The next day the teacher said noth
ing of the attack e*£ the day before. |
But he very promptly told a boy who
was disorderly to t-£ke a seat on a
front bench. George Dewey and hi 3
naughty companions immediately
walked to the front seat n#Sr the
culprit. Then Dewey told the teacher
the boys were going to "lick him."
"That Dewey boy" began the fight.
The teacher finished it. He reached
for- a rawhide that he'liad considerate
ly put in a convenient place. Dewey
struck out boldly,. Imt -his blows were

son "somewhat the-jWOf^e for wear, but
still in condition for e<fthool work."
Dignified Dr. E»ewe^ thanked the
master for his atteriti&ns to his boy,
and promised thai -Jie* should be at
school the next dayl "And the boy was
at school the next day.
The author of the biography of "that
Dewey boy" hastens to attach te this
unedifying tale a proper moral.
"Then came the reform of the Dewey
boy," he writes, "and Tie soon became
the best scholar in the school. . Under
his inspiration $nd- admonition the
other boys fell into line, and the Mont
pel ipr district school became aer famous
in after years for Its' «JudJous i: «*S or
derly attendance ac 41 ha£ onca been
notorious for its want of study and
lack of discipline."
Sharper point is given to the moral
by the relation of a meeting in after
years between the teacher and the
pupil. "I shall never cease to be grate
ful to you," said Dewey, then a lieu
tenant in the navy. "You made a man
of me. But for that thrashing you
gave me in Montpelier I should prob
ably have been in state prison ere
Thus by a rawhide skilfully applied
was the career of "that Dewey boy"
turned from the road that ends in pils
on to the path that brightens at its
end with the stare of an admiral's
The pleadings of the boy to go to
sea urged his father, much against his
inclination, to use his influence to se
cure his appointment to the naval
academy. The father had chosen for
the iad an army life, and sent him to
Norwich university, a military train
ing school, in preparation for the
course at the West Point military
academy. Young Dewey was sorely
disappointed when the appointment to
the naval academy was given to a
schoolmate, George Spaulding. instead
of to him. Dewey was named an al
ternate, and after the examinations it
was the alternate who entered the
academy, while George Spaulding turn
ed from war to theology, and in May,
1898, addressed to his congregation at
Syracuse, N. V., a thrilling pulpit dis
course upon the splendid achievement
of his alternate.
The author-relative of the admiral
declares that in the academy, while
"not quarrelsome, young Dewey knew
when he was insulted," and that while
"he would rather study than fight, he
could do both equally well." From
these remarks Dewey evidently used
his fists frequently. He was once chal
lenged by a fellow student to a duel
with pistols, and promptly accepted the
challenge. The duel certainly would
have been fought had not some stud
ents informed the officer of the day of
the meeting arranged. Dewey stood
fifth among the fourteen o£«Jils class
that were graduated.
When Farragut sailed away to open
the mouth of the Mississippi river
Dewey was a lieutenant on the frigate
Mississippi. Among "personal remini
scences" recorded in this book is th'B
story from the lips of "Saxty" Fisher,
a veteran now in the Naval home: "The
Mississippi had to be burned to escape
capture, and the crew were told to save
themselves. Lieut. Dewey could have
escaped easily, as he was a bold, pow
erful swimmer, but he was too un
selfish to think only of himself e.o long
as any of his comrades were in danger.
Not far from him he spied a seaman
whe was trying his best to keep above
water after his right arm had been
paralyzed by a bullet. Dewey struck
right out for him and pave,. him a lift
till they reached a floating spar. Then
the wounded man was towed ashore
in safety."
Another veteran who was on the M4s
sirsippi at Port Hudson describes
Lieut. Dewey as the coolest man on
the ship, and tells of an order that
signifies the genius of this officer:
"The order to attack Port Hudson
came at night. Dewey, on his own re
sponsibility, ordered us to whitewash
the decks so that the gun crews would
have a chance to see the running gear
of the guns. Such an order had never
been given before tc the crew of a man
An interesting bit of history relates
to the assignment of Dewey, then com
modore, to the command of the Asiatic
squadron. His health was poor, and
he had been on shore duty for many
years. By his friends he was urged
to take a cruise for the benefit of his
health, before reaching the age fixed
for retiring officers from active service.
One story told is that his assignment
to command of the squadron in Asia
tic waters was strenuously opposed by
some men high in authority, and that
it was only when his friend of a life
time, Senator Redfield Proctor, called
on President McKinley and made a per
sonal request that Dewey be thus as-

versity of this state !n 1894, and graduated
from that institution in Juno, 1896. with hon
ors, he being the president of the graduating
class of that year. He began the practice of
his profession at Melrose in June. 1596, where
he associated himself with AY. J. Stephens,

which firm Is doing a large and successful

signed that the orders were issued
placing him in command.
Special interest will be bestowed
upon this work by- 15.000 glorified
Americans, for in addition to the life
of the admiral the book contains an
"authentic, historical and genealogical
record of more than 15,000 persons in
the United States by the name of
Df-wey and their descendants."
Some bits from the genealogy are of
interest to the 69.085,000 Americans who
have not the distinction to wear this
name. For instance: Admiral Dewey's
pedigree is traced directly to Thor, the
Saxon hero-god, and moves down in
stately measure through W.oden and
Hengst, King Dieteric and Witekind,
Robert-fortis and Hugh Capet, Alfred
the Great and Anne of Russia; Robert,
Earl of Leicester, and Gilbert, Baron
de Urifraville, to Richard Lyman, who
in 1631 moved from .High Ougan to

Henry \\ •>. i tt-i-son \amen Democratic
Candidates and Principles.
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Dec. 31.— Henry
Watterson, in a leading editorial this
morning in the Courier-Journal, under
the caption "The New Year's Outlook
for the Democratic Party," nominates
Admiral Dewey for president and^Oen.
Fitzhugh Lee for vice president. In
part he says:
"To come down to hard facts, Old
Horse Sense in the Rocker, the silver
issue relegated to the place of
busted shades, the tariff issue peace
fully reposing upon the shelf, where
the Cleveland administration left it to
wait for free trade under new condi
tions, the season of famine ended and
the season of plenty arrived — what are
the Democrats to do for a national'
platform and ticket?
"There Is but one thing for them to
do. The voters have about made up
their mmds that party pledges are
fabricated chiefly to be broken. Let
ithe Democrats, banking on this cir
cumstance, put up a ticket without a
platform; let them nominate candi- '
dates for president and vice president
who are a platform in themselves, and
if they can induce the great admiral
and the gallant general to accept, here
is the card to win with;
"For president, George Dewey, of
Vermont; for vice president, Fitzhugh j
Lee, of Virginia. Platform— the Stars I
and Stripes, God bless them!
"Even now the Republican leaders,
who rarely fall to take time by the
forelock and never let go their grip
upon the shore line, are planing to
make their campaign of 1900 upon the
broad issue of national union and ex- j
pansion. They are not going to handi
cap themselves with any ancient plat
form rubbish. Hiffh tariff is no longer
wanted by the manufacturers for
whom it was invented. The bloody
Shirt, having served its turn, has gone
to the old clothes basket. The president
knows his business. At the opportune
moment we shall see William McKin
ley and Joseph Wheeler march down
to the footlights hand in hand, the
flag above them, beneath them em
blazoned on a strip of red, white and
blue 'The land we love from "end to
end," ' or words to that effect. Then
what are the Democrats going to do
about it? How are they going to meet
The Only One Who Ever Escaped
From Portland Prison.
From the London Mall.
A ' daring and adventurous- criminal
appeared in the dock at Southwark in j
the person of William Bartlett, alias
Gordon ar,d Beaumont, a tleket-of
leave- man, who was charged with
failing to notify himself to the police.
The -prisoner, who is fifty-seven years
old, and has a record of sentences to
taling thirty-fi»ur years of imprison
ment, is said to be the only man who
ever escaped from Portland convict
This happened in 1870, while he was
serving a second term of ten years'
Ijenal servitude for burglary. He was
confined in a cell situated in the veiy
center of the prison, and by the aid of
a chisel made from a pail handle suc
ceeded in removing some stones from
his cell wall and crawling into a ven
tilating shaft, which ran through the
building between the floor, of his and
the neighboring cell and the ceilings
of the cells below. When he got to
the outer wall of the building he re
moved more stones with his peculiar
instrument, and then, by means of a
rope, which he had made from his
sheets, he dropped to the quadrangle
below. He succeeded in eluding the
civil guard, and mounted the first wall
safely, afterward crawling along the
intervening space to the second wall,
which he also climbed.- He escaped
the notice of the military sentry, and
crawling along got safely among the
quarries. Here he remained for six
days, existing on the bread which he
had saved from his prison fare await
ing & -suitaWe night to swim unob
s«>rVe>a tfc ttrt-' mainland. He achieve*
thia. and, arriving ait Dorchester, brol-i
into a clergyman's house. Having
feasted himself and donned clerical
clothes, ..he walked boldly from the
house. A few days later a police-con
stab.e saw a clergyman feeding on
blackberries, and noticing that he was
eating ravenously became suspicious
me clergyman did not appear in the
least nonplussed at the constable's at
tention, and he would have got out of
the difficulty safely had not the officer
noticed he was wearing- prison socks,
me prisoner, in the name of Beau
mont was sentenced to eight rears'
penal servitude on April 3, IS7I for
prison breaking- and the burglary of
n, Cl , c F nian ' s house. The prisoner has
still 179 days of his last sentence of
eight years' imprisonment unexpired
and Mr. Slade sentenced him to nine
months imprisonment.
And Have Vonr Velvet Mlrrorc.l f«
Order While Yon Wait.
From the New York Evening Sun.
Velvet may be mirrored to order
nowadays, and all the milliners and
modistes are rejoicing at the news.
Heretofore it was supposed that that
peculiarly glassy, reflective quai
the stuff was only obtainable by a '
process in the original manufacture,
and, as mirror velvet only came in
certain shades, it meant a limited sup
ply. But now you may cbooch
tint or tone of velvet you like to trim
your frock or to emploj- for y >i:r bon
net, and it may be mirror* I
Some skillful flattening of the nap is,
of course, the method by which this Is
achieved, and the results are not to be
detected from the original article. The
curious thing is that it should be fash
ionable. A little while ago .
smashed nap to a velvet meant an un
wearable fabric, over which women
spent days of effort and nights
thought in the attempt to freshen
again. Nowadays the velvpt that looks
as though it had been caught in the
rain and then ruined by Ironing OW
is the thing most to be desired, and.
Instead of "ruined," we say mir
