STATUS OF THE SMITH CASE
President May Rrtsrs It ta Conrt, bat
Cnnnot Compel Reversal
WASHINGTON, June 10. Secretary Root
said today that he had not yet had time
to consider the case of General J. H.
Smith, tried by courtmartial at Manila for
alleged violation of the rules of war In tbe
conduct of tbe campaign of Samar. He
added that as the Smith cass was passed
practically on the transactions which led
to the trial of Major L. W. T. Waller of
the Marine corps by courtmartial, charged
with the illegal killing of Filipino soldiers,
he probably would await tbe receipt of the
record of that case before giving final con
sideration to the Smith case.
The Waller record Is not expected to
reach this city for several weeks. It is said
at the War department that the Waller
case Is a closed Incident, but tbe Smith
esse will not be legally closed until It has
been finally acted on by tha president.
The significance of this statement is thst
It is still within the power of the presi
dent to return the esse to the court for
reconsideration of the evidence adduced,
even though tbe officer was acquitted by
the court, as the press dispatches from
Manila have Indicated.
The court could not be legally compelled
to change Its findings, however, against
its own Judgment, and its adher
ence to a verdict of "not guilty" would
stand, despite the disapproval of th presi
dent, which, in thst case, would be simply
as a rebuke to the court without affecting
ths legal statue of tbe accused.

"So far as our nominee is concerned, you

tribution. E. A. Wiltse, Julius Jenal, H.
C. Vaill, W. P. Warren and J. F. Boyd, all
made encouraging speeches.
The protraction of the atruggle wss un
questionably due to the fact that so many
