dressed to Secretaries Garrison and Dan
lols, respectively, requesting that "a very
serious reprimand" be administered to
those army and navy officers who par
ticipated in the recent dinner of the
Military Order of tho Carabao at which
the administration's Philippine and other
politics were mentioned. The letter fol
lows: 'The officers who were responsible for
the program of the evening aro certainly
deserving of a very serious reprimand,
which I hereby request be administered
and I cannot rid myself of a feeling of
great disappointment that .the general
body of officers assembled at the dinner
should have greeted the carrying out of
sue), a program with apparent Indiffer
ence to the fact that It violated some of
tho most dlgniried and sacred traditions
of the society.
I am told that the songs and other
amusements of the evening were Intended
and regarded as 'fun.' What aro we to
think of officers of the army and navy of
the Unltod States, who think It 'fun' to
bring their official superiors Into ridicule
and the policies of tho government which
they are sworn to serve with unquestlon
Ing loyalty, Into contempt? If this is
their Idea of fun, what Is their idea of
duty? If they don't hold their loyalty
above all silly effervescences of childish
wit, what about their profession do they
hold sacred T
"My purpose, therefore. In administer
ing this reprimand. Is to recall the mot;
who are responsible for this lowering of
standards to their Ideals; to remind them
of the high conscience with which they
ought to put duty abovo personal In
dulgence and to think of themselves as
responsible men and trusted soldiers,
even while they are amusing themselves

yours, wooDitow wilhon."

Interesting Story,
but Does Not Tell It

Telegram.) A. Van Wagenen. deposed
United States district attornoy, Issued an
other statement this morning In reply to
charges from tho attorney general's of
fice that ho -was discharged for , Incom
Van Wagenen says It probably will bo
hard to make soma people understand
that "tho attorney general Is not a big
man who knows a lot moro than, any
district attorney." Ho says Mcllcynolds
la trying to "put It over" In this case,
but timo will prove tho correctness of
Van Wagcnen's attitudes on tho trust
question and tho Incorrectness of Mc
Ileynolds' policy Ho says a lot of mere
dissolution suits will not solvo tho trust
problem or satisfy the public, although
many politicians muy think it will. Ho
accuses tho attorney general's offlco and
Internal Revenue Collector Louis Murphy
of misrepresentation and Murphy of rank
Drcacn of confidence. Ho Intimates that
It ho, hlmselT, should use tho tamo tac
tics he could make some Interesting rove-
latlons. As to tho I'lumbe'rs' truBt prose
cution, he says: "I made It slzzlo for
two days and tho attorney general has
mado It fliilo for two months."
Tho Woodbury County Bar association
will meet Tuesday to endorse Frank 15.
