WASHINGTON, July 20; The sec
retary of the navy has decided thai
the third volume of Maclay.'s history
of the. Spaptshr American war shall
not be used as a textbook at the naval
academy unless the- obnoxious lan
guage it contains in characterizing
the action of Rear Admiral Schlev i3
eliminated. The secretary says that
it would be manifestly improper tc
have a history containing such intem
perate language as a textbook' for the
cadets. He will inform both-' Com
mander Wainwright, who is in com
mand of the r.aval academy, and Mr.
Maclay. the author of the history, of
his decision. In this connection the
secretary says the proofs of the en
tire volume were net submitted to
him by the historian. He received
only the proof. of the third chapter,
that relating to the mobliization cf
the fleets, which contained a summary
of the orders which he. n-j secretary
of the navy, had issued in making
the naval preparations for war. That
chapter was satisfactory r.nd he re
turned it to Mr. Maclay with his ap
proval. He says ho never saw the
accounts of the battle of Santiago and
the criticism of Rear Admiral Schley
until after the book was published.
Mr. Maclay was appointed lo his pres
ent position in the New York navy
yard August 23. 1!K0. having been
transferred from the lighthouse ser

BALTIMORE, July 2v. General
Felix Agnus, publisher of the Balti
more American, has telegi-aphed the
following to President McKinley:
William McKinley. President. Can
ton. Ohio. "Maclay's Hist cry of the
Navy" i.? the standard in use at the
naval academy. In the third volume,
just issued, the historian charges Rear
Admiral Schley with being a coward,
a liar, a caitiff, an incompetent and
insubordinate. In an interiew in the
American this morning. Maclay. the
historian, who is a navy department
clerk, classed a a laborer, and at
tached to the Brooklyn navy yard,
says that proofs of this third volume,
which should have told the most glori
ous story in all our nava' annals,
were submitted to Secretary Long and
Admiral Sampson and approved by
them in advance of publication, also
that Long put him in his present po
sition after he had read and approved
this scurrilous attack upon Admiral
Schley. These proofs wcie also sub
mitted to Admiral Dewey, who refused
to read them.
If aught were neederT to convince
any fair-minded man that a clique in
the navy department has conspired
to traduce the hero of Santiago and
that the conspiracy was carried into
execution while this brave and gallant
officer was suffering expatriation on
the fever-infested coasts of South
America, this should furnish it. Will
you, Mr. President, in view of all this
sit quietly by and permit these con
spirators to continue their diabolical
work? Every justice-loving American
appeals to you to intervene in the
name and for the sake cf fair play.
Next to being right ai! the time.
which no man ever was. the best thing
is to find out as soon as possible that
you are wrong and right yourself Im
