FORT RILE".', Kan.. Oct. 30. The series
of maneuvers at Fort Riley ended in a
problem unique In fts character, producing
surprise In more senses than one. The
problem, as originally given, seemed to be
mere prosaic exercise in the formation
of an outpost. A Blue force, under Colonel
Augur of the Tenth cavalry, consisting of
wo regiments of infnntry, one regiment of
cavalry and two batteries of artillery, was
ordered at 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon
to. take a position on Republican flat as
though it had Just crossed the river. Its
outposts being Immediately established,
facing north. An equal force of Browns,
under Lieutenant Colonel Wheeler of the
Second Infantry, was similarly posted at
the milk ranch at tho north end of the
reservation, having, according to military
Action used in the maneuvers. Just
reached that point, marching from the
north. The umpires were sent out to ob
serve and report upon the establishment
of the outpost and the changes in Its po
sition at dusk and at dawn.
This apparently constituted the entire
problem and many of the military oh
servers, thinking that the last exercise
was to be a mere drill, departed from
Fort Riley during the day. At 10 o'clock
at night, however, a messenger was dis
patched by the chief umpire to Colonel
Augur with information supposed to have
been received from a spy relative to -the
situation of the Brown force, and with
orders for him to make a night march and
be In position to attack the Browns at the
first break of day. The Blue commander
at once summoned his subordinate com
manders end announced to them his plans,
At 2 o'clock in the morning Oeneral Bates
and staff left headquarters and rode out
to the Blue camp. At 4 a. m. the Blue
forces started out in two columns, one
moving by way of Governor Harvey road
and the other In the direction of Morris
Hill. The march was conducted in the
greatest silence, all smoking waa prohibited
and the command marched forward steadily
to take up a position for attack.
A storm suddenly arising and the clouds
obscuring the stars, the deployment of the
line was effected much more slowly than
expected, and day had fully dawned be'
fore the Blue forces were deployed for
Brovrn Foree Surprised.
Although the Brown forces had no notifl
cation or expectation of impending attack
they were well on the alert, in accordance
with the general instructions for outposts,
and after the first gun waa fired from the
Blue position scarcely a minute elapsed be
fore It was answered by the Brown artil
A heavy attack was mads on the Brown
right by the Eighth cavalry, the Twenty
first Infantry, supported by the fire of the
Sixth battery of field artillery, and the
Blue line waa extended further to the right
by the battalion of engineers and the Tenth
cavalry, supported by the firs of the Twen
tleth field artillery.
An attack was made with energy in the
midst of the two batteries of the Nine
teenth and Twenty-ninth batteries field ar
tillery by the Sixth and Twelfth infantry,
which were promptly reinforced by the
Twenty-nfth Infantry. Shortly after
o'clock, the forces having approached
within close proximity of each other, the
engagement was terminated by the chief
Owing to the delay In the deployment of
the Blue lino the plan of the Blue com
mander to assault at the first gray of morn
Ing had failed. The command marched
back to camp, where It arrived thoroughly
drenched. The maneuver was probably at'
tended with more physical discomfort than
any other one of the entire series. The
general opinion among1 all the- officers
however, waa that It was one of the most
Instructive and valuable military exercises
given during the entire encampment.
The maneuvers are now at an end, the
commands are preparing to depart to their
respective stations, and most of tho um
pires left today to rejoin their commands.
The general opinion is that the maneuvers
at West Point, Ky., and at Fort Riley this
year have been of unusual benefit, and they
mark a step In the direction of advanced
military instruction in the United States.

United States District Attorney Youngs,
the next witness, was asked If he would

Inspector Little, who signed the com
plaint against Beavers, was then called.
Mr. Steuer, counsel for Beavers, questioned
him at great length to show that his aver

hearsay and that he hnd no personal
knowledge of the actual facts, but with
out reeult. The question was finally asked
the witness If he had any personal knowl
edge of Congressman Drlggs' connection
with the Edward J. Brandt-Dent company.
