mant Under the Law, but Reports
From 8an Francisco Say Officers of
ths Fleet Contemplated Making
Charges Against Him Reflecting
Upon His Moral Character.
Washington, Jan. 17.—The applica
tion of Rear Admiral Barry for retire
ment has been approved by President
Taft and he has been transferred to
the retired list of the navy.
The navy department has receiYed a
telegram from Rear Admiral Thomas,
who was appointed to succeed Ad
miral Barry, that he had assumed
command of the Pacific fleet. The
navy department issued the order re
tiring Admiral Barry on Saturday and
advised hiin of that fact by telegraph.
This action waB taken before the
publication of the allegations that offi
cers of the flagship West Virginia con
templated charges against the admiral
reflecting upon his moral character.
It was reiterated at the navy depart
ment that no charges nad been filed
here against Admiral Barry and all
that was known officially in regard to
his retirement was that lie desired to
avail himself of the privilege granted
by law to voluntary retirement after
forty years' active service.
Officers Demanded Action.
San Francisco, Jan. 17.—According
to reports published here Admiral
Barry sent his request for relief to
Washington following a conference
with the staff and line officers on
board the West Virginia, At this con
ference, it was reported, the sugges
tion was made that a loaded revolver
be sent to the admiral's cabin, but
this suggestion was lost on a vote.
The officers present then took an oath
of secrecy on condition that Admiral
Barry forward his resignation to
Washington at once.
Instead of resigning the admiral re
quested retirement. After that fact
became known the subject matter of
the conference leaked out until all the
sailors of the fleet were talking. Ad
miral Barry says:
"It is not true that I have been
forced to retire. Men have asked for
immediate retirement before. The
reasons that have caused me to do
this are partly public and partly pri
"The man who Is triumphantly vin
dicated under such circumstances is
as much a loser as if the charges were
proved to be true. I believed that by
requesting immediate letlrement I
could save the navy a scandal."
