as' bureau chiefs. Until the general
board, of which Admiral Dewey Is head,
waa constituted, the department held that
the ranking officers held the oldest com
mission. Admiral Dewey ' decided that

of the date of the Jlrst 'commission of the

la the case of Rear Admiral Bradford, chief
of the bureau, ef equipment, and Rear Ad
miral Taylor, chief ot the bureau of navi

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, July 17. There Is prob
ably no single subject in the domain of
national legialation that appeala so strongly
to many thousands a that ot pension for
the old soldier. Notwithstanding that the
ranks of the veteran are thinning, con
treat la constantly broadening th scop

to tho so-called "maimed soldier act,"
giving all veterana of thla class who had a
year' service, a rating of $30 per month
where they ar o disabled aa to requlr
the aid and attendance of another person.
It Is confidently predicted that ehould thl
measure become a law It would largely
tend to reduce th passag of private acU

needed relief to a class of veterana, many
of whom can trace, their disabilities to

many of their witnesses ar not living, can

saona Cnlla Up Mnttcr

LONDON. July 17. The Bulier contro
versy wa again raised by Sir Edward
Grey, Bart (liberal), In the House of Com
mons today on the War office vote. Sir
Edward charged the war officials with act
ing unfairly toward General Bulier and de
manded the publication ot further papers.
The war secretary, S.t. Brodrlck, op
posed further publications, which, he de
clared, could not relieve General Bulier ot
the responsibility of such mistakes aa the
abandonment of the guns at Colenso and
th proposals to surrender Ladysmlth,
Which, It they had been listened to, would
have produced a disaster for which there
was no parallel In British history. In re
gard to those propoaala, continued Mr.
Brodrlck, when Oeneral Bulier sounded
bis note of despair to General White he
had a hellogram In hi pocket, received a
fortnight ' before, saying that General
Whit jiad provisions tor seventy days and
could defend Ladysmlth while the' ' food
lasted, r General. Buller'a retention after
Colenso and Bplonkop waa Inevitable un
der the circumstances and hi appointment
to the command at Aldershot wae simply
a resumption ot hi former office. Oeneral
Bulier wa a good "peace commander."
Later Sir Edward Grey' proposed vote
ot censure of the government for It treat
ment of General Bulier wa defeated by
ti noee to 98 aye, after much speech
making. 1
Simultaneously the war office wa being
attacked ia . the House ot Lords, where
Lord Monkswell (liberal) brought up the
scathing allegation oontalned in the re
port of the committee on military educa
tion, and urged th immediate appoint
ment of aa Inspector general of army edu
cation. Lord Raglan, the under secretary
for war. and Lord Lansdowne, the foreign
secretary, defended the waa, office, saying
that a new scheme for education, contain
ing sweeping changes, was In process of
being drawn up, which statement satisfied
Lord Monkswell and his supporter and th
motion waa withdrawn.

pines, who. I ataylng here, when Informed
by the correspondent of the Associated
Press ot the result of Governor Taft's
negotiation with th Vatican on th sub
ject of the friars and their lands, ex
pressed satisfaction at the acceptance of
the first proposal of Cardinal Rampolln,
the papal secretary of state, that the mat
ter be discussed at Manila ' between an
apostolic delegate ' and tbe governor in
Manila. '
When asked what was likely to be the
outcome, Father Paya replied:
It la more Important to know what will
be the outcome of the matters between
the Americana and Filipino. Although
the war ia almost over and the Filipinos
now oroteet friendship for the Americana.
they in reality dislike them Just aa they
disliked the Spaniards. The FUlplnoa say
they aid not struggle against npain, oui
refused to calmly surrender their inde
pendence. Father Paya concluded with declaring
rtiat It was not true that the people were
against th frlare. Th latter, he further
asserted, were hated oaly by the native
clergy and a fraction of th people.
