TOO MANY GENERALS FOR THE WORK
No Necessity ' for Major Geaerals
Divisions Departments Report
Directly to War Depart--meat
' ASMffcafpN", Au. 4.-Ths report ot
Major General Oreely, commanding the De
partment - of 'tne PacMo, criticising the
present arrangements of divisions and de
partments of the army, haa caused con
siderable dlscusilon t in the War depart
ment and officer are wondering what will
be the effect when congress takes up the
subject again' It is aald that the report
. emphasise the point, several times made,
that with six major generals of the line
and fifteen brigadier generals of the lino,
great difficulty, Is found In finding plaeos
for them commensurate with their rank'
One reaaon for' creating four divisions was
to give place for major generals, the de
partments being commanded by brigadiers.
General Qreely makes It appear that there
4s no necessity for such division commands,
as the departments now -report direct to
the War department and the division com
manders do not 'know what has Veen done.
It Is also said that extra staff officers are
required who might well be dispensed wltb
should the old department method be re
sumed. Under present conditions there are
two major generals stationed at Governor's
' island. ' There is a major general and a
brigadier general at Ban Francisco. Nat-
urally it seems the duties are not such as
, to require two general officers at one place,
with a full set of officers, such as are at
tached to every division and every depart
ment. There Is an intimation that tiJej
6 reel y report may suggest some changes
in the present army organisation.

Datler Coaaty Reduce Bonds.
DAVID CITY. Neb., Aug. 24.-(Speclal.)-
A large transaction was closed yesterday
by the County Board of Supervisors, which
saves the taxpayers of this county $3,000.
Years ago 1118,000 In bonds were voted to
aia tne -union racinc Railroad company
to build through the county. These bonds
ran for twenty years and drew 10 per cent
interest. At their maturity $30,000 In cash
was paid and $89,000 in new bonds Issued,
running twenty years at S per cent Interest
The county board, a few years ago, began
to ralae a sinking fund to retire these
bonds when they mature and In this fund
had accumulated about $38,000. The City
National bank worked up a deal whereby
It could buy these bonds for the county
at a price that would save the taxpayers
$3,000 by 'taking them up now Instead of
letting tnem run. This now leaves the
bonded indebtedness of the county as fol
low: Account of court house, $26,000, with
already $19,000 on hand to pay them, and
$59,000 Union Pacific Railroad company
Donas. The state owns virtually all of

testimony to be produced before him, anj
shall make such finding of the truth or
falsity of such chance as In his judgment
such testimony warrants, and In case such
charges are adjudged by him to be sus
tained by the evidence he shall at once
remove the commissioner so found guilty
and appoint another qualified to fill the
vacancy thus caused. The governor when
sitting to Investigate charges preferred
against a commissioner shall have full
power and authority to compel the attend
ance of witnesses and the production of
books and papers, and to administer oaths,
and he may hold such meeting at the most
convenient place In th state for the pur

Cuticura. lie said that was a very
good thing, but that he thought that
my face would be marked for hie. but
Cuticura did its work and my face is

when I had taken one bottle of

was blessed with a fins rain early this
morning, and while tha ground was not
dry, yet the past ten days ot dry and
very hot weather has been Injurious to lata
corn. This rain removes all doubts as to
the beat corn crop ever raised hers, and
with a fairly lata freese these will be a yield
of from fifty to seventy-five bushels per
acre. The yield of wheat la threshing out
much better than expected.
