TOO MANY BOSSES
Commission a Failure in Dig

Army Officials the Men Who Could

lace, Disgusted With Med
dilng, May 'Resign.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, "Wash
ington, March 20. One of the most per
plexing problems that ever confronted the
Roosevelt administration is that now un
der consideration, viz.: How shall the
Panama Canal be built? The selection of
a route: the preparation of plans, and
the acquirement of the rights of the
French Company were all Insignificant
questions compared with the determina
tion upon the best method of carrying
out the work, now tfcat preliminaries
have been settled.
The commission idea is not a new one in
this country; it has been many times tried
and has almost always proved a fiasco.
It so proved in the case of the Panama
--TmiT Government commissions do not
eeem to bo In line with good business
policy, largely because they provide too
many heads, and are almost always
made up of men unqualified for the duties
to which they are assigned. That is the
trouble with the Panama Commission.
Let Army Officers Dig Canal.
From the first, many practical men
have maintained that the Panama Canal
should be built by army officers. Wher
ever in the past army officers have un
dertaken great engineering works of a
public nature, they have carried out their
work promptly, efficiently and economical
ly. There has rarely been any scandal;
there has been little complaint. For this
reason it has been repeatedly urged upon
the President that he should place the
construction of the Panama Canal in the
hands of some good, reliable army officer,
and detail various branches of the army
to participate; the engineers to take
charge of the actual work of construction;
the medical corps to look after sanitation;
the quartermasters department to take
care of transportation, and the subsist
ence department to handle all matters
of subsistence of troops and employes
at work on the canal.
MaJor-3eneral Blwell S. Otis, retired, is
such a man as might well be charged
with the construction of the canai. The
work he did in the Philippines demon
strated his fitness to assume charge of
the building of the canal. "With General
Otis at the head there would be no scan
dal; there would be no frauds; there
would be good honest work, diligently
pressed, and the canal would be built
at the minimum cost consistent with
No Head, Too Much Red Tape.
Under the commission there has been
no practical man at the head; there
"has really been no head. Admiral
Walker has been nominally chairman
of the commission; but each of the
other five commissioners have, exercised
as much authority as Admiral Walker,
and they have continually complicated
tne affairs of the commission, with no
toriously bad results. The commission's
methods have not been practical; there
has been a superabundance of red tape;
t tnere has been too much meddling on
the part of some commissioners in the
Bpeciflc duties assigned to some other
one commissioner; and much of the dif
ficulty complained of grows out of the
fact that the various commissioners
have unwisely meddled with Chief En
gineer Wallace. Much of the recent tur
moil grew out of the fact that Mr. Wal
lace, by far the most practical and in
telligent man connected with the con
struction of the canal, complained to
the President of the frequent interfer
ence with his work by members of the
commission. Mr. Wallace plainly in
formed the President that he would re
sign and quit the work unless he should
be given absolute say as to engineering
problems. He would not tolerate inter
ference by impractical men who had
no knowledge of engineering matters.
The President realized the Justice of
Mr. Wallace's complaint, and the
The condition of incompetency and

ASK RESTORATION OF OFFICE
Army Officers Regret Abolition of
OREGON AN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. March 20. The Adjutant-General's
department of the United States Army Is
absolutely dismantled and Is a thing of
the past, although the work of the Adjutant-General's
Corps, heretofore per
formed under the Adjutant-General. Is
now transacted by the Military Secretary.
It Is. rather a sad fact that this corps,
which was at one time the pride of the
Army, and which had furnished many
distinguished men for service lit times of
war, should degenerate into a nonmllitary
adjunct of the Army. Most of the men
now composing what was the Adjutant
General's corps and now the Military Sec
retary's office, have seen active serv
ice, and in case of hostilities would be
glad to again-engage in active service. '
During the Civil War quite a number of
men from the Adjutant-General's Corps
passed into the line and did valiant serv
IcCj One of them was General D. C.
BuelL who commanded an army in the
West during an Important period. In the
late Spanish War at least half a dozen
officers of the Adjutant-General's Corps
went Into the line, and a number of them
are now general, officers. The experience
they had in the Adjutant-General's Corps
was of great assistance to them In their
future work, and nearly every officer who
has spent 10 to 30 years in that corps has
been benefited and goes into the line bet
ter equipped for the duties of a general
There has been some suggestion that the
old Adjutant-General's Corps should be
restored by changing the name of the
Military Secretary's office to the Adjutant-General's
office. As a matter of fact,
they are both the same in many ways.
The Adjutant-General kept the records.
The Military Secretary now keeps the rec
ords. Orders rjre now Issued through the
Military Secretary, as they used to be
issued through the Adjutant-GeneraL The
Chief of Staff stands In the same relation
to the affairs of the Army as did the Gen
eral commanding the Army, save that his
office has been made more Important and
he Is in more constant communication
with the Secretary of War.
Army men generally believe that it
would be "better to restore the Adjutant
General's Corps' because It is more mili
tary than the present corps and because
officers had a certain pride In keeping
it up to the high standard' which it at
tained. Possibly bills for this purpose will
be Introduced and pressed during future
sessions of Congress.
INSISTS THAT HE BROKE PAROLE
BURT TO DIG CANAL
MILLIONS FOR THE CHEROKEES
Court of Claims Awards Them $4,-
500,000 From United States.
WASHINGTON, March 20. The cases of
the Cherokee Indians and of individual
Cherokees against the United States were
decided by the Court of Claims today.
They Involve a large amount of money
and are of an unusual and extraordinary
The United States bought the Cherokee
outlet, agreeing to pay for It 58.300.OOOj
owns aaout i per acre, ana also agree
ing to reopen a long-standing controversy
between themselves and the Cherokees.
In 1S35 a treaty was made under which"
the Cherokees were to move or be re
moved from Georgia, Alabama and Ten
nessee to the Indian Territory. The Chero
kees contended before they were removed
that under the provisions of the treaty
they were not to be made to pay the cost
of removing from homes which they did
not wish to leave to a country to which
they did not wish to go. The Government
held to the contrary.
When the Cherokee outlet was sold the
Indians' attorneys contended that all
their accounts should be reopened and the
matter equitably settled, and for that pur
pose the United States should make out
an account and transmit It to the Chero
kee Nation. If the Cherokee Nation
adopted it. Congress should immediately
appropriate for whatever balance might
be found due. The account was adopted,
but Congress did not appropriate the
money, and for some time did nothing.
In the present suit the Court of Claims
decided that the account transmitted by
the Secretary of the Interior, followed by
this inaction - of Congress, renders the
United States liable for the balance of
H.U1.2S4. with Interest from June 12. 1S3S.
which amounts approximately to J, 500,000.

Of Port Arthur had each all sworn In writing,
according to the terms of the capitulation, to
the effect that they would not act contrary to
the Interest of Japan.
The Japanese government, being, convinced
that the returning to Russia of such officers
through the war zone is detrimental to the
military operations, decided that they ehould
not In any case be allowed to take that route,
and the decision was expressly communicated
to them at the time. It Is therefore clear that

Cured of Piles
After Suffering More Than Twenty.
TRIAL. PACKAGE MAILED FREE.
"Until about two years ago I bad had
plies for about thirty years, at times
bleeding and very painful. I got a fifty-.
cent box of Pyramid Pile Cure at the
drug store, and used It and was entirely
cured: got another box In case I needed
it, and as the plies did not return In
six months I gave the remedy to a friend
of mine who wanted the doctor to operate
to cure him. My friend said he would use
the 'pyramids" but he knew they would
do him no good, but they cured him. of
plies of twenty-five years standing,
am free from piles today, and have been
since using Pyramid Pile Cure. I was

so many people should think an operation
effects a permanent cure, whereas the con
trary Is more often the case.
