Severely Reprimanded Through
Secretary Root : of the '
War . Department -
BY; PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT.
Because of His Comment Upon tbe Schley
Case Is Told That His Duty is to
. Express Opinion On Matters
1 Only Whea Called Upoa.
By Telegraph to the Horning Star.
Washington, Dec. 21. A determi
nation on the part of the administra
tion absolutely to terminate further
discussion ot the Sampson-Schley con
troversy took shape in the publication
to-day of some remarkable corres
pondence that has passed between Sec
retary Boot and Lieutenant Qeneral
Miles, relative to the latter's interview
published in a Cincinnati paper, com
menting upon tne ocmey case, w nen
the interview" appeared it attracted'
considerable attention officially, but
. after the lapse of two days without
any sign of official action, the conclu
sion became general that the interview
would be ignored. Therefore, the
publication tbis afternoon of the full
correspondence on this subject created
a sensation in army and navy circles.
It is seldom so severe a reprimand is
administered to an officer of high rank
in either service. What the result
mav be cannot be foretold, although
it is assumed that Gen. Miles will sub
mit without further comment.
The renrimand is contained in the
following letter of Secretary Boot to
War Department. Dec. 21, 1901:
Dear Sir By direction of the Presi
dent. I communicate to you his con
elusions unon vour course in the in
terview to which your attention was
called by my letter of the 19th in
Tour explanation of tbe . public
statement made by you is not satisfac
torv. You are in error if you sup
pose that you have me same ngm . as
anv other citizen to express puouciy
an oninion regarding official ques-
tions; pending tne course or. military
" . m
discipline. Tne esiaoiisnea ana in-
variable rules or omciai propriety
necessary to the effective discipline of
the service imnose limitations upon
tbe pubic expressions of military offi-
... 1 l
cers, Willi wnicn your long experi
ence should have made vou laminar.
Your duty is to express your opinion
on official matters when called upon
bv vour official superiors or in the due
course of your official reports and
recommendations and not otherwise.
The first article of the regulations
governing the army of tbe United
"Deliberations or discussions among
military men conveying praise or cen
sure, or any mark of approbation, to
ward others in tbe military service.
This provision has been a part of
the army regulations for at least half
a century, and tbe highest obligation
to observe it rests upon the officers,
whose high rank should make them
examples to their subordinates. ' Any
other rule of action in the military
service would be subversive of disci
pline. It would not be tolerated in a
subaltern, and it will not be tolerated
in any officer of whatever rank. The
present facts are that for several years
there had been unfortunate and bitter
controversy in the Navy Department,
a controversy generally deplored even
bv the participants as tending to bring
the service into disesteem at , home
and abroad and to destroy those rela
tions of mutual confidence and friend
abip between naval officers which the
interests of erxjcuve service require.
In this controversy the army had not
been involved, and no bar had been
raised to that good feeling and friend
ly relation between all the officers of
tbe navy and all the omcers or the
army which is essential to the success
ful and harmonious co-operation oi
the two services in preparation and
rn action. A court oi inquiry has
been held on the matters in controver
' and a report had been made in
WIUCU UBB uicuiucr ui mo wiui uau
dissented in some particular from the
msioritr. and the report was pending
before reviewing authority. ' At this
point you, the lieutenant-general of
the army, saw fit to make a public ex
pression of your opinion as between
the majority and the minority of the
' court, accompanied by a criticism of
the most severe character, which
could not fail to be applied by tbe
generality of readers to the naval offl
cers acainst whose view your opinion
was expressed. It is of no consequence
on whose side your opinion was, or
what it was. You had no business in
the controversy and no right, holding
the office whicb you did, to express
anv oDinion. Your conduct was in
violation of tbe regulation above
citftd and the rules of official propriety
and you are justly liable to censure,
which I now express.
Secretary of War.
Lieut. Gen. Nelson A. Miles, Head
Quarters of the Army.
.p. S. Your second letter of explan
ation, dated to day, and received since
the above was written, does not change
the case. The necessity for repeated
exnlanations but illustrates the lm
portance of the rule which you have
Violated. j&uhu koot.

the publication of the Miles corre
spondence. Secretary Boot gave out a

the publication this morning of the
final chapters of the Schley ease, so
faraa it has figured before the navy
Department, is taken as an indication
of tbe President's purpose to clear the
official records of all pending issues in
that matter. ,
Secretary Boot's publication of the
MacClay letter is explained by the
fact that he left the White House
some time after Secretary Long had
been there, and thus was in a position
to carry out the President's latest
wish in the matter.

The annual convention of the Inter

this afternoon and to-night.
The charges of violation of the rules
ot the association made against the
athletic associations of some of the in -stitutions

CHILI AND ARGENTINA.
Nefoifstions Between the Two Countries
. Suspended Argentina Has Recalled
Its Minister to Chill.
By Cable to tbe Horning star
Buenos Aveks, via Galveston, Dec.
2L It appeared this evening that the
"Chilian incident," as the trouble
between Argentina and Chili is re
ferred to here, has unexpectedly as
sumed a more serious aspect The
Tribune, tbe official organ of
tbe government, admitted that the
Ultima Esperanza question, instead
of approaching : a settlement, is
become graver, and that the Chilian
government is now in danger of al
lowing itself to be influenced by a
group of doctrinairies. The feeling
here is no longer optimistic. It is as
sorted that if Chili does not change her
exacting attitude to day a rupture be
tween the two countries will occur.
After having exhausted the friendly
feeling shown by the Argentine gov
ernment in its efforts to arrive at an
agreement with Chili on tbe question
of roads, Chili has injected new
features into tbe difficulty, taking the
position that the Argentine govern
ment has abandoned possession of the
independent territory. The attitude
of Chili in refusing the arrangement
which was proposed by the Argen
tine government has obliged that
government to recall its minister
in Chili. Negotiations are suspended.
Despite the delicate situation hope is
still entertained that war will be
avoided. In the public manifestations
on the streets the energetic attitude of
the government is applauded.

EASY "SURE THINGS."
Some Propositions That It Is Safe to
- Bet Aa-atnst.' .
" There are manyi things which at first
thought appear to be easy enough of
accomplishment that it is pretty safe
to bet a man he cannot do. Most people
know, that the human .bands are not
strong enough to break a new laid egg
If the hands are clasped and the egg
laid endwise between the palms. It Is
said that the. pressure required to break
an egg In this manner amounts to tons.
Among other safe bets is a wager
that a man cannot rise from a .chair
without bending forward or putting his
feet under the chair or outside of it.
Many a man will back himself to give
another a start of 50 yards in a dash
of 100, provided the man haying the
start hops all the way. Bnt no runner,
however swift, can give that amount of
start to an ordinary man. For the first
five yards they go at practically the
same pace.! Therefore the runner, to go
95 yards while the "hopper" goes 45,
would have to run more than twice as
fast, and it would be a weak man who
could not hop 45 yards at a pace equal
to 20 seconds for 100 yards, and that
would mean that the runner in order to
win would have to beat all previous
If a man boasts that his penknife Is
particularly sharp, ask him to cut with
one stroke of the blade one of those
yellow ribbons, 1 mostly of silk, which
come around bundles of cigars. In 999
-cases out of 1,000 the knife is not sharp
enough to do this. It will cut through
all the ribbon but the last strand, and
that will pull out long, and the more
he tries to cut it the longer it will pull.
out . -
It is safe to bet any one except a
blind man that he cannot stand with
out support of any kind for five min
utes at a stretch if he is thoroughly
blindfolded without moving his feet
If he does not move his feet he Is pretty
sure to topple over In about a minute.

Birds Themselves. ,
'Few persons are aware of the fact,"
said a well known physician, "but It Is
true, nevertheless, that the egg of the.
partridge Is one of the most nutritious
tilings in the world. They are not used
for eating purposes except in very rare
cases, and then It generally happens In
remote rural districts. I have known
negro families in tbe state ot Louisiana
during the laying season to live on the
eggs of partridges. And they would
flourish handsomely and grow-fat on
account of the rich properties of tbe
'These eggs, of course, never find
their way tato the market because they
ar? never i ken from their nest except
by such pe -sons as 1 have mentioned,
and they rj b the nests, I suppose, be
cause their' principal food supply comes
from tbis source. Quail meat comes
pretty high in the market at all times,
and the average man will find It more
profitable to spare the eggs and wait
for the birds when the hunting season
rolls around. These men would pass
100 nests in one day without disturbing
an egg. The sport of hunting the birds
is an additional incentive.
"The average negro does not care so
much about tbis aspect of the case. He
figures that the white man, having tbe
best gun and the best dog, will beat
him to the bird. So he goes after the
egg; One partridge will lay anywhere
from 12 to 20 eggs, and a nest is a good
find. 1 know of many families in rural
sections who feast on these eggs In the.
laying season. I have tried the egg
myself as. an experiment I found It
peculiarly rich. It has a good flavor, is
very palatable and In fact is altogether
a very fine thing to eat. Really I be
lieve that the egg has more nutrition -in
it than the fully developed bird, but
of course, as one of the men fond of
the game in the field, I would like to
discourage the robbery of the nests."

HUSTLING FOR BUSINESS.
Blore or TLcsa ot It Done In Hew York
"Get a move on! That's the great
modern motto," said a New York law
yer who has been practicing in the
local courts for the last 25 years.
"When I was admitted to the bar,"
he went on, "there was a great idea of
the dignity of the profession, A law
yer would about as soon have paraded
Broadway carrying a sandwich sign
calling attention to bis legal ability as
he would have thought of hustling In
any other way for business. The thing
to do was to rent an office and sit in it
until somebody came and dug you out
of the dnst and spider webs and asked
you to take a case.
"The march of progress has changed
all that. Every law firm in this city
hustles for business. I don't mean
that the big men of the firm chase
aronnd after clients. ,Of course they
don't. Bnt the firm does a lot of
shrewd planning ahead. It schemes in
a particular fashion of its own to widen
its sphere of usefulness to itself.
"Of late years one of the expedients
adopted has been the taking into the
firm of young college graduates who
can give a reasonable guarantee that
they will bring business. College men
know of this custom, and many of
them shape their life at the university
accordingly. They are after friends.
They want to be popular. They want
to be able to 'swing' as much of the
future legal business of tbelr fellow
graduates as they can.
"A chap who can bring business of
that sort Is taken in on a good salary
even when he is the veriest tyro at

what real work he can and to study

The Philippine tariff bill is
unjust to the Filipinos. The duties
on their products coming into the
ports of the United States' are as
high as they are on products coming
from any foreign country. They
are a great deal higher on their
sugar and tpbacco than the Kepub-
lican party wants to levy on sugar
rand tobacco coming from Cuba, and
higher than; those proposed, in a
reciprocity treaty, on sugar and to
bacco coming from the British West
India Islands. (Savannah, . JSews,
Detn, ... v,.-'
The sugar beet interest, says
the Indianapolis News, declares that
if the sugar trust compels a reduc
tion on Cuban raw sugar, they will
bring about a reduction of the tariff
on refined sugar, and it expresses
the earnest hop that "both parties
may win." Which is doubtless the
public wish also! and would be the
best possible way to settle the ques
tion, if it could be extended to in
clude all other protected products.,
It is worthy of note m passing,;
however, that the Republican pro
gramme of lower duties on sugar
does not contemplate lower duties
on refined sugar in any instance.
