Claim Miller Hazed North Carolina
Annapolis, January 9. Several legal
questions of importance arose today
during the second trial of Midshipman
Stephen Decatur on charges of hazing
before the court-martial in session at
tho Naval Academy. O.i a motion to
strike out certain specifications as not
constituting hazing, the court was led
to substantially define the term hazing
as it is understood by the members of
A plea in bar was then entered to
the only specification against Decatur
on the charge "encouraging and coun
tenancing hazing.", '
The plea urged that Decatur had al
ready been tried upon substantially the
same facts in the former case and that
his trial in the specifications would be
putting him in jeopardy twice for the
same offence. Judge Advocate Harri
son admitted the force of this plea and
the court adjourned to give him time
t(ixaini.ic the questions Involved -
In denying the motion to strike out
the first two specifications, the court
ruled that maltreatment of a fourth
classman by the infliction or direct
physical cruelty was not the only kind
of hazing, but that any annoyance or
molestations such as the requirement
of menial services, making ridiculous
and such like, were also hazin;. This
ruling is expected to lead to many more
The next midshipman to be tried is
John' Paul Miller, of Lancaster, , Ky.,
also a member of the first class. Among
the midshipmen of the fourth class
whom it is alleged that Miller hazed is

Man Says :
THE BEST ON EARTH"
"In the year 1899 the side of my
right foot was cut off from the little
toe down to the heel, and t he physician
'aa trying to sew up
the side of my foot,
but with no success.
When he found out
that wouldn't work,
ho- began trying to
heal the wound with
all kinds of ointment,

foot and way up
above my call was
nothing but - proud
flesh. I suffered un
told agonies for four years, and tried
different physicians and all kinds of oint
ments. I could walk only with crutches.
It is sixteen months ago since I began
using Cuticura Soap and Ointment for
my limb and foot. The first two
months the Cuticura Remedies did not
seem to work, but I kept on using them
both. In two weeks afterwards I saw a
change in my limb. Then I began using
Cuticura Soap and Ointment often dur
ing the day and kept it up for seven
months, when my limb was healed up
just the same as if I never had trouble.
. "It is eight months now since I
stopped using Cuticura Remedies, the
best on God s earth. I nm working
at the present day, after five years
of suffering. Tho cost of Cuticura
Ointment and Soap was only f6;
but the doctors' bills were more like
$600. . You can publish my name and

A Howling Success
In the comedy "The New Secre
tary," the Peruchi-Gypzene Co. kept
the audience at the opera house, in one
continuous roar last night It was
productive of more laughs to the min
ute than any comedy that has been on
the stage here. It is a revival of an
old comedy which was very popular
several years ago and from the way it
was i-eceived last night its popularity
has not died out yet by any means.
It is a comedy with a great deal of
action but there is not much rough
house work. There was a ludicrous
situation due every minute and not one
failed to be on time. A long time will
pass before a more thoroughly enjoyed
show will be seen on the local stage.
Tonight the exciting and interesting
drama - "The Midnight Marriage"
which is essentially the same as the
well known play , the "Charity Ball"
will be produced. It is claimed that
this play is the company's masterpiec J
Saturday the matinee will be "The
Man From Mexico," another of their
successful farces, and Saturday night
