still In tho service in the Philippines
who can testify in support of tho

you to execute these instructions.
"It is believed Hint the violations of
law and humanity, of which these
cases, If true, aro examples, will prove
to be few and occasional and not to
characterize tho conduct of the army
generally In the Philippines, but the
fact that nny such acts of cruelty nnd
barbarity appear to have been done
Indicates tho necessity of a most thor
ough, searching and exhaustive Inves
tigation in tho general charges pre
ferred by Genornl Gardener, and you
wlll sparo no effort. In the Invcstlgn
tion already ordered under these
charges, to uncover every such ease
which may havo occurred and bring
tho offenders to Justice.
"Tho president desires to know In
tho fullest and most circumstantial
mannor all the facts, nothing being
concealed, and no man being for nny
reason favored or shielded. For the
very reason that tho president Intends
to back up tho army in the heartiest
fashion in every lawful and legitimate
method of doing its work, he also in
tends to seo that the most rigorous
care Is exercised to deti-i t and prevent
.- nny cruelty or brutality and that men
4 who aro guilty thereof aro punished.
Great as tho provocation has been In
dealing with foes who habitually re
uort to treachery, murder and torture
against our men, nothing can Justify
or will bo held to Justify tho uso of
tortnro or inhuman conduct of any
Kind on tho part of tho American
