Objectionable Matter and Reaubtnit
Beef Iue Gets Gen. Wood and Gov.
Roosevelt Into aa Cnpleaaant Position
Speculation I'poii What Will Ite Done
Neat Cabinet Is Concerned.
Washington. Jan. 14. There was no
abatement in the interest exhibited here
yesterday in all the Incidents connected
with the bitter attack made Thursday
by Commissary General Eagan upon
General Nelson A. Miles. The principals
In the case of Generals Miles and Eagan,
contributed little during the day to the
controversy, but the war Investigating
commission acted promptly to redress
the affront put upon the board itself
as the members regarded it contained
in the language used by General Eagan.
Tbe commission in a note signed by
Charles Denby. vice president, tolj
Eagan that his statement would not be
entered' in the record; that the lan
guage was not such as a witness should
have used before the commission, and
that Eaj?an might revise It, leave out
the Irrelevant matter and resubmit it
to the commission. With the note the
statement was returned to Eagan.
Co in mi, ion Taken by Surprise.
The commission regrets that General
Eagan proceeded as far as he did, and it
is explained that the vituperative nat
ure of the testimony was a complete
surprise to the commission, and that
but for the rapidity with which General
Eagan read his long statement and the
absorbing vehemence of its delivery he
would have been checked at the time.
At the time of the creation of the com
mission the president in instructing the
members verbally assured them that all
witnesses should be immune front
punishment for what they misrht sav.
but members of the commlssoin say it
never was intended to indulge such lan
guage as that given utterance to Thurs
day. What further steps may be taken
in the matter, save as to the acceptance
or rejection of a revised statement If
one is submitted, lies without the scope
of the commission. If the statement ia
returned with the vituperative and ob
jeciionaDie language entirely stricken
out the commission will acceDt it and
consider it as any other testimony.
Ea;an and Milea Not Talklna-.
General Eagan himself gave no sien
of any intention on his part to avail
himself of the offer made bv the board.
His friends did not hesitate to intimate
that he would expunge tbe objectionable
language, bat he would say nothing for
nimseir. The war department officials
are no yet clear as to what would be
tr.e effect of a withdrawal or modifloa
non or the statement. One element
holds that officially the record failing to
show that any objectionable language
naa Deen used there would be no legal
onense. Another takes the view that
while the, amendment would mitigate
general Lagan's offense. It would not
wipe It out. Another aspect of the case
is the bringing forward of the plea of
exemption which was guaranteed In the
name or the. president all witnesses be
fore the board from what they might
say. but again the officials were di
viaea, ana this was also true of the
members of the cabinet as to whether
the exemption could be claimed in this
particular case. Meanwhile General
Miles Is apparently waiting for the war
acpartmej-it to act. taking the position
that it is incumbent upon it and the
war commission to protect the army
irom such attacks.
Cabinet Talked of the Matter.
i me caoinet meeting yesterday a
large part of the time was taken un In
discussing General Eagan's case. The
cabinet members, however, were
unusually reticent with regard
to what was said, and de
clined to express any opinion as to
what, if anything, would be done in the
matter, which Is now In the hands of
the rresident and Secretary Alger. Nev
ertheless, all the members of the cabi
net commend the action of the com
Tnission in declining to receive the man
uscript of General Eagan's testimony
until the objectionable epithets have
been expunged. There is no doubt that
the president deeply regrets the Inci
dent, and It Is almost certain that official
cognizance will be taken of the matter
WHERE CAN IT 11 E TRIED T
The Sharp Issue Between the Two High
oncers of the Army.
It is said by persons who may be re
garded as authorities In military law
mat in as present phase the contro
versy between Generals Miles and
Eagan is not one that will admit th-;
calling of a court of inquiry. This is
entirely apart frcm the question of the
right to call a court-martial. In th
latter case, tinder the strict rules of
military law. the court would be obliged
to take under consideration certain spe
cific charges, such as an attack upon a
oroiner officer, and would not be per
mitted to go beyond that matter to the
extent of inquiring into the truthful
ness of the charges made in the at
The court or inquiry, however, as its
name implies, has a. broader field of ac
tion, and might without being bound
cioseiy inquire into an tne tacts, not
even confining Its inquiry to the officer
alleged to be the offender, but perhaps
as has been known In the past to re
turn a finding that Involved tbe court
martial of more than one officer. In
other words, a court cf Inquiry in a case
like this. If it found reason therefor,
could indict for trial before court-martial
both of the parties to the controversy.
However, the best opinion Is that at the
present phase a court of Inquiry is be
It has been known for a month past
that a bad feeling existed between the
commanding general and the commis
sary reneral of the army, yet such has
been the effect through military dis
cipline that before Thursday this had
not manifested itself openly. It Is true
that the two men have not come into
clese contact freju:nt!y acl their rel-
tlons being confined strictly to the ex-:
change of official communications there
was no occasion for th deve'opment of
personal friction: but In view of Gen
eral Eagan's known titter feeling, it is
now learned that It was with some
anxiety that the friends of the two of
ficers saw them meet last week, the oc
caslon being a periodical session cf the
managers cf the Soldiers' Heme.
General Miles is ex-offic'o president cf
this board and Commissary General
Eagan Is a member of the board. The
two officers met. sat at the same table
ana transacted business without the
slightest signs of ii: feeling and with
out showing a trace of animosity for
what had gone before. It is a matt?r of
speculation, however, whether, failing
proceedings oerore a er.urt-martia! or
some other Judicial method cf disposing
or the issue between the two men. the
relations between them C3n be pre
served to the point where even official
business can be transacted
RATHER KOI OH ON ROOSEVELT.
Testimony to the Deer by Gen. Wood,
the Rough Rider, Too.
In the excitement created by the
Eagan outburst the pending Issue be
fore the commission the quai:ty of the
army beef was well-nigh lost sight of.
There are. however, two piquant addi
tions to the part of the proceedings, on
consisting of the testimony of Gene-ml
Wood to the effect that no one who
kmounted to anything had made any
complaint as to the rations, and the
other from Theodore Roosevelt, mak'ng
a very severe complaint regarding the
beef. General Wood started out in the
recent war as colonel of the Rough
Riders, and is one of Colonel Roose
velt's friends an o!d wild west friend
with whom he has chummed when on
his trips in the west.
General Wood said that.no amount
of preparation in addition to that which
had been made would have brought
about any difference in the amount of
sickness among the army of invasion.
As to the beef he had never noticed
anything bad and said the great trou
ble was the ignorance and superstition
of the men. The average soldier, he as
serted, does not regard matured meat
with anv favor. The United States
forces at Santiago had unlimited ra
tions and the Spaniards left the city
full of food. The popular Idea that
Santiago was devoid of food and the
Spaniards surrendered because they
were starving, he said, was not true.
But Colonel Roosevelt writes differ
ently. General Miles gives out a letter
In which the New York governor says:
The canned corned beef we found to be
good. The so-called canned roast beef
that was issued to us for travel ra
tions, both on the transport and on the
train, and which we occasionally got
even at the front, was practically
worthless. TTnless very hungry the men
would not touch It, and even when suf
fering from lack of food they never ate
a fifth of it. At the best it was taste
less; at the worst it was nauseating.
There was also a supply of beef (in
the shape of quarters) which was put
aboard our transport at Tampa. It
was supposed to be fitted by some pro
cess to withstand tropical heat. It at
once became putrid and smellcd so that
we had to dispose of It for fear of its
'The beef we got at Santiago after
the 24th or 25th of July that is after
the siege had ended, and when my
brigade had been without fresh meat or
vegetables for a month was generally

was In a sickly condition. The fact
that the meat ration was so bad as J
generally to be Inedible caused very
great hardship to my men. and reduced

for the moment, effectually restored
confidence throughout Manila and dis
pelled tne excitement due to a passing
fear on the part of the citizens that an

Miss Tearl Wood, a popular young lady of Arlington, Ind., savs: "I had
fairly good health until two years ago, when facial neuralgia developed. The
pain was fearful. I-'requently I would have severe attacks during the night,
making it impossible to ever get a night's rest. I suffered severely from this
disease for many weeks. Our physician was unable to help me and we tried
another doctor, but with the same result. I used different remedies but with
vo benefit. Happening to read in the newspaper concerning the merits of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills I concluded to try the pills. When I finished the second box
I was better. I was never more happy in my life than over the fact that I was
petting well. After taking the third box tbe pain left me, and when I had
finished the fifth box I was well." Kuthville (Ind.) Graphic.
