.WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21. ,1900.
GOL. CALLAHAN IS OUT. RESIGNATION PR ES EXT ED AND . ACCEPTED WITHOUT A 1IC ISM UK. The Colonel Asked for Time and It . Was Refused An Expression of Opinion by a Local Military -Man-Trouble Brewing in the Second. . One of the most astonishing an nouncements that has stirred the Con liecticut National Guard for some tima says the New Haven Palladium, was that of the resignation of Colonel T. P. Callahan, of the Second regiment. Which was received by the Palladium yesterday afternoon. The dispatch read as follows: "Hartford. Conn. Nov 20. In special orders from the olfice of the adjutant peneral, the resignation of Timothy F. Callahan, Second regiment. C. N. G.. is announced, as also the acceptance of the resignation and the honorable dis charge of Colonel Callahan from the military service of the sta'te, to date from November 10, R)C0."' Colonel Callahan was called up and asked if the dispatch was correct. "I will not talk." was his answer, emphatically repeated to several ques tions. Adjutant-General Louis N. Van Keu reu was called up in Waterbury last night and the following is his inter view witli the Palladium: "What does this dispatch mean, Gen eral ?"' the reportev asked. "Why. Colonel Callahan has simply resigned, that's all." "Well, is that not a little unusual?" "No, there are men resigning every day." "Ye:i. but you don't get a colonel's resignation every day. Is there no ex planation to that?" "No. I have no explanation to give. If there was any Colonel Callahan is the man to get it from." "He r fuses to talk about the mat ter. That is why we call on you." "Well. I have nothing to say except that I received anil accepted his resig nation and lie was discharged to-day." "What were his reasons for resign- Oh. tiie usual military ireason of press of business and lack of time to look after the military work.' "Is not such an affair somewhat tin-' usual?" "Well, he had good reasons for re- signing, press of business." Gen; ral Van Keuren would say nothing more definite but throughout the interview it was apparent that he was holding back something concern ing the resignation, which he knew, but would not admit. Further investigation by the Palla lium resulted in discovering the imme diate cause of Colonel Callahan's ac tion. He had been informed that the examination of the officers of the Sec- vember 10 and 20. It happened that the amount of work in the office where he is an assessor has been unusually large for the past two years and Col onel Callahan's presence every day was required and his absence for even half. a day could not be allowed. On that account he made application sev eral days ago to be excused from the examination for some time. General Van Keuren refused the request. Col onel Callahan tendered his resignation. It was accepted by the adjutant-general a few hours after it was received and an honorable discharge was pro cured as quickly as possible." An intimate friend of Colonel Calla han's, a prominent military man, cor roborated what the Palladium had al ready learned and commented on the case as follows: "The colonel applied io Gen Van Keuren to be excused from the exam ination until he had finished the work in the assessor's office. That is a rea sonable request and should be reason ably granted by . headquarters. In stead it was positively refused. "As soon as the colonel received the news that his request was denied he tendered his resignation. That was tendered in the hitter part of last week, on Friday, I think. "The adjutant-general's office ought to be roasted severely. There is no reason why it shouldn't honor such a request from such an officer. It was the height of discourtesy for General Van Keuren to refuse such a reason able requests. However, it is in line with all of General Van Keuren's acts toward Colonel Callahan. He was very anxious to get rid cf Colonel Cal lahan and so stated. Now he is rid of hin;. . . .... "Before he was elected colonel mili tary men here and elsewhere in the . Ftate knew that Van Keuren Vlid not appreciate Colonel Callahan. ; In the Bradley court-martial the animus of headquarters towards Colonel Callahan w."i3 shown. - - "It is simply another instance . of the policy of the present headquarters, a policy -which if continued would dis integrate the entire brigade. It Is aiv other sample of petty treatment of regimental commandants ; on the part of General Van Keuren. "The eagerness with which the res ignation was accepted, the undue haste in the matter Is evidence of General Van Keuren's desire to get Colonel Callahan out of the way. Why the resignation was only tendered in the latter part of the week. It was first sent to Brigadier-General Frost for " approval or disapproval. Then it was sent to General Van Keuren. , He has tened to accept it and this afternoon General Frost received a letter at the , armory by special delivery, in which ; it was stated that Colonel Callahan ' was discharged. It is one of the most hasty actions in the history of the Guard." " . ' Colonel Callahan has been in the .- command cf the Second regiment hard : ly a year.- The most important period of his administration was during the famous Bradley trial, a few months ngo. Captain Oscar L. Bradley of Mer- icien was charged with drunkenness and conduct ill-becoming an officer of .'the Guard' in Camp Lounsbury. The ; oase laid bare ft number of Incidents 'which detracted more or less' from the popularity of the C. Jf; G.. and did not show up camp life in, a very perfect light. Camp Van .Keqrea. In which C-'"nel Callahan commanded, the Sec? i 'merit, was ponducted in a much - re.3eetcd much cred- ' V.-v. throughout the state looked for the resignation of Colonel Callahan. It did not come before camp and since that time matters seemed, on the sur face, to have readjusted themselves very peacefully. ' " - .-'- The resignation of the commandant of the Second regiment coming as it does at a time when everything seemed to have been amicably settled adds to the surprise and throws the Guard into another state of intense excitement and suspense which bids fair to furnish a subject of conversation iii every com pany in the state. Colonel Callahan's resignation was tendered by him without consulting any of his fellow officers and except one there was no one in this city who knew anything of the impending crisis. Which is evidently the end of the strain In the relations that have exist ed so long between the adjutant-general's otllee and the head of the Sec ond regiment. The resignation of Colonel Callahan created the greatest surprise here: in deed, the announcement may be called a sensation, but local military circles were not at "all surprised. They seemed to have been aware that such an occurrence was due at any time. While no one connected with the Na tional Guard in this city would speak for publication on the matter, all of them were quite voluble otherwise. One of them stated that he was surprised that Colonel Callahan had not resigned long ago. or immediately succeeding the ltradley court-martial. Oim? . of those connected with the . National Guard here spoke in effect as follows: "Tiie headquarters" of the National Guard was opposed to Colonel Calla han from the time of his election, and the grounds of their objection was race and religion. That is a serious state ment to make for such a feeling would, naturally have supposed to have died long ago; it does not belong to this end ot tiie nineteenth century, and it should have no place in this country, but it cannot be denied that it is here and alive, too. "The apparent haste in all their re lations with Colonel Callahan shows tiie feeling headquarters had toward him. Such unseemly conduct was nev er heard of before in the Second regi ment. It is actually disgraceful and emphasizes more than anything else could how objectionable Colonel Cal- lalian was to the headquarters of the regiment. 'The refusal of the adjutant-gener al to give the colonel time to appear before the board of examination was unseemly and ungentlemnnly. It was never refused before. Colonel Calla han is a member of the board of as sessors of New Haven and at this time is a pretty busy man. There was no cause for haste in getting him to appear before the board of examina tion : had he been popular with head quarters his request for time would not have been refused. His examina tion could have waited, whereas his duty as assessor could not. The col onel was sat upon, to use an expres sive phrase, in the Bradley court-martial, and he has been opposed by head quarters at every turn he would take. "Now. regarding his resignation. Saturday afternoon the colonel sent his resignation to headquarters in Hart ford. It was accepted Monday morn ing. Who aecejited it? Who was it that took upon himself the "duty of the adjutant-general in taking action upon that resignation? The adjutant-general was not in Hartford Saturday after noon, nor was he there Sunday, nor still on, Monday morning, yet on that morning the colonel's resignation was accepted. It was hardly possible that Governor Lounsbury would take ac tion upon the resignation without con sulting the adjutant-general, yet hard ly any other officer at headquarters would dare do it. They would have no right to do so. It is possible that the governor might have telephoned the adjutant-general, but that is not the way business of that kind or im portance is generally transacted. To be brief, Colonel Calia'nan's resigna tion is the result of feeling between certain officers of the Second regiment and the adjutant-general. A few more resignations may follow soon." In the natural order of things, Lieu tenant-Colonel Sucher will succeed Col onel Callahan and Major Geddes of this city will step into Lieutenant-Colonel Sucher's shoes. ELKS' MEMORIAL SERVICES.

J ml are Lowe has been retained to def Mid him and Town Attorney Coleman of Cheshire will prosecute. The case would have been tried to day but for the illness of Judge Lowe. Edward McManns is in a quandary to know what to do regarding board ing bouses for his men at the Branch, and is of the opinion that unless he lias better inck in this respect next week than ho has had so far, he will be obliged to build a large bouse there himself. All the houses on the property were destroyed by fire last summer, so that there is no place for the. men to stop over night now, except at the farmers' houses, and some of them do not care about boarders, and others have little or no accommodation for any one outside of the members of their own families. The city has been talking about purchasing addi tional land there, which has three or four houses on it. but wlfether they have done so or not is a question. If the city should decide to buy the prop erty referred to that would settle all the trouble about house room and would facilitate things wonderfully for Mr McManus and his men during the winter. It is said that Mllo K. Gray is thinking of converting his place in to a hotel for the next couple of years and if he does this there, is no reason why the venture should not pay. His house is located just' right to accom modate workmen at the big dam, all of whom, no doubt, would stop with him if he had suitable apartments for them. Frank K. Ludlow ( Order of Notice.
