Admiral Schley's application for
a court of inquiry gives tho presi

If he is wise, he will take the whole
thing in his own hands and ignore
the navy department completely.
The public, rightly or wrongly thor
oughly distrusts all acts in this
connection that are inspired by the
navy, and the public will watch
the course of the investigation with
the very closest attention. Any
ground whatever for a belief in the
unfairness of the judges will vitiate

Tho Sampson Schley contro
versy is again raging liltn a limine
afire. Coiteervntivo friends uf belli
regret this, but if it leads to a eon
givsMomil investigation that will
bring out the rear facts which now
seems probable, it may do good bv
preventing future revivals of the
eontroversv. The pro-cut revival
was started by the publication of
the third volition of Maelny's His
tory of the U.S. Navy, which is
used us a text book at the Naval
Academy, in which Hear Admiral
Schley is called "coward" and
other insultiiigepithets, The auth
or, a clerk in the lhooklyn Navy
yard, in saying that he had sub
mitted proofs to Secretary Long,
was uuder.tlooil to mean that Secre
tary Long had approved of the use
of the abusive epithets, This Secre
tary Long lost no time in denying,
lie also ordered the objectioua! vol
ume stricken from the I i -J t of text
bunks at the Naviil At a.leniy. il
Secretary Long had u!!ovu )ih
denial to end with his having i-aid,
"it is ah; aid to say that 1 would
endorse his language when he calls
Admiral Schley a coward, Admiral
Sibley is no coward. No one in
the service who knows him lias ever
for a moment doubted his bravery or
gallantry in action." The friends ol
Schley wouldn't be so lighting mad,
but be continued by saying Unit in
stead of the Navy llepartiuentbeiiig
opposed to a congressional investi
gation, he had written to Senator
Hale, chairman of the senate naval
Committee, asking for one, ami
maiie the lire not ter than ever th
udding: "Admiral Schley should
have been court-martialed as foon
as we learned at Washington that
he had deliberately disobeyed his
orders when searching fortlieSpmi
ish ships. 1 suggested to the pres
ident that Schley's action might to
be inquired into, but the president
demurred. Thoday that we learned
Schley hud tunic. 1 back was the
darkest day in all thehistory of the
war. Tre-i'lent felt convinced that
Admiral Schley had soinegooil rea

not order a court-martial. When
Admiral Sampson took charge of

a court-maitiat nccause he was a
junior ollicor, and assumed that Ad
miral Schley would ask for a court
of inquiry, when he learned that
the navy Department was dissati-
lied with his course," !
The warrant olhcers in the navy,
whose status is about that of nun
commissioned oilicers in the iiruiv,
are not falling over each other in
their eagerness lo putjii applica-;
tions t . take the examination pre-
scnlH'tl by the navy department,
the suecesslul passiiij; of winch will
uive them coniissioiis as ensigns.
It was in connoction with this ex
ainiiiatioii tha' Hear Admiral Samp
son wrote the fool letter about
tlunner Morgan, who is bar rid by
iifie from taking the exaiuiiialion.
Although applications to take this
examination must be 111 led before
July oOlh, only two have been re
ceived. Ollicials of the navy de
partment say it is fear of the dilli
cully of passiii the exiuniiiation,
that has prevented more applica
tions, and an ollieial statement giv
ing a synopsis nf the scope of the
exaiiianlion, has been made public,
for the apparent pui pon) of indiie
iiil,' tnoro warrant oilicers to apply.
Old warrant oilicers, when they can
be got to talk, tell a different story.
They say that the bright young
fellows in the service know that
their lives would ho niiulo a stand
ing torture by tho other commis
sioned oilicers should they suc
ceed in passing the examination
and getting a eoniission, and have
wisely decided not to iniiko the ef
fort. So many army oilicers who
did not graduate from West Point
have become prominent that the
prejudice against outsiders has
been dulled in the army, hut there
are very few holders of naval com
missions who did mil graduate from
Annapolis anil who are not dead
opposed to any other niel hod of get
ting one, and consequently bitterly
predjuiced against those who suc
ceed. (lertnany seems determined to do
everything in its power to hamper,
and consequently to lessen Ameri
can trade with that country. U. S.

a report to the department of state
that it is reported the Reichstag
will pass a law compelling Ameri
