INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 24 The third an
nual convention of Spanish-American Vet
erans came to a cloee today, after the
election of Colonel D. John Foster of Chi
cago as commander-in-chief and the desig
nation of Milwaukee as the next convention
A resolution was unanimously passed fa
voring a consolidation of the Spanish-American
War Veterans and the Spanish War
Veterans. It was Incorporated in the reso
lution that a committee of eight be ap
pointed to confer with a like committee
from the national army of Spanish War
Veterans. The committee wae given en
tire authority to complete the organization
In all details.
The Llller embrogllo waa finally settled
by that gentleman formally resigning his
office as adjutant general and offering a
written apology for his discourteous con
duct of Monday In calling Colonel Harri
son a liar, and for his other offenses.
The auditing committee, which was ap
pointed to Investigate Llller's accounts, re
ported through Colonel Hutchlngs ot Iowa
that Llller's books were In such an un
systematic condition that no detailed re
port could be made. The committee sug
gested that an expert accountant be em
ployed to disentangle the financial affairs
of the order, and stated that as far aa
could be learned the cash balance of the
order is $231 and Its liabilities are $2,441.
It was decided that no settlement be made
with Ltller until the affairs of the order
should be untangled. It was also decided
that no paper or periodicals be made tbe
official organ of the order. This waa a
blow at Llller's paper, which Is published
at Lancaster, Ta., and which hitherto
has been used. Tonight William C. Ltl
ler said In reference to an apology he had
been required to make for calling Colonel
Russell H. Harrison a liar, that he re
tracted every word of it. This statement
was made to Lieutenant Governor Gilbert,
Colonel E. J. Nlmmlck of Chicago and
others Llller said be offered his resigna
tion In order to prevent being discharged
from the order, as such a discharge would
handtcap him In organizing a new order,
which, be said, he Intended to organize
within a short time.

Against these contemptuous and Injurious
spersions, upon the soldiers of the United

la William McKlnley: "ir an- orders of

nothing to say. oucn wronits as were ac
tually cbmmltted against the natives were
likely to be brooglu to our attention and In
every case that -we investigated we found
a willingness on the part of those In au

The third is Governor William H. Taft
of Ohio, who aald: "I desire to say that it

The fourth Is Vice Governor Luke E.
Wright of Tennessee: "General Chaffee
has no patience with any acta ot oppression
or cruelty and whenever his attention has
been called to tnern re nas ni once taaen

the path to that enlightenment "and ca
pacity for self-government for which Rlrnl
longed, and to'-the blessings which the
noble and gentle McKlnley believed would
descend upon them under the benediction
of our nag. I tnina iney. ano not mo
others, were the true friends ot the Philip
pine people. ,
At the afternoon. meeting of the league
speeches were .delivered by Senator Cullom
Governor' Yates and Congressman A. J.
Leaatae Pat on Former Platforms.
While the weather was very unfavorable
to the meeting of tbe State League of Re
publican Clubs, being the worst possible
sort this morning, It In no way lessened the
enthusiasm of the vast throngs of delegates
and friends, who began to overflow the city
last night and are constantly arriving on
every train today.
The prospects are tor a record breaker,
both in point ot attendance and interest
shown. Among the most prominent ar
rivals last night were Governor Yates, Sen

developed In the New London caucus dur

one or the other of two candidates for gov

large party ot "Kansas City platform demo

also appeared for recognition and endorse
