Russian Officer Detected Spy
ing for France.
Schebeko, Former Attache at Wash
ington, Betrays German Plans
of War to France Kaiser
Takes Summary Action.
CHICAGO, Jan. 30. (Special.) The Ber
lin correspondent ot the Chicago Dally
JJews says: Confidential information has
been received by your correspondent that
Russo-German relations have suffered a
mdnful tareach as a result of. the discov
ery that the Czar's military attache in
Berlin. Colonel Schebeko, for a long time
has been engaged in spying operations in
collusion with the military attache o
France. Colonel Schebeko was formerly
connected with the Russian Embassy n
"VVimhlneton. and doubtless is well remem
bered in military and diplomatic circles
Proof of Guilt Confounds Him.
Count Schlieffen. late chief of the Ger
man General Staff, laid the proofs of tho
Russian attache's guilt before the Kaiser
In the closing days of December. Em
peror William confronted the accused offi
cer with the documents and suggestea
fhat an international military scandal
could be avoided only by the Colonel's
asking for his immediate recall. This
Colonel 9chebeko did, and now has left
Berlin on a "furlough."
The incident Is highly sensational, not
only because Colonel Schebeko's activity
was employed at a time when Germany
was in danger of war with France and
possibly with France's ally, but because
he ,was attached to the personal suite of
the Kaiser in tho same manner that the
German military attache at St. Peters
burg is attached to the entourage of the
Plans to Ilald French Hear.
Colonel Schebeko's specific offense Is
said to hae consisted in revealing certain
plans for raiding French and Russian ter
ritory in time of war b.y "officers' " pa
trols, which were to ride far Into the in
terior under cover of night and destroy
the communications In the rear of the
enemy's armies.
Colonel Schebeko was well liked by the
Kaiser, but It seems the General Staff
long ago suspected him of excessive zeal
In the performance of his duties. It is
realized In Berlin that to spy Is the busi
ness of every foreign military attache,
and German attaches abroad have In
structlons of the same kind, but they are
told that their activity must be of a dis
creet and defensible nature. Colonel von
der Go4tz. the German military attache
in Austria, was recalled In 1SS0 for spying,
only a few months after the foundation
of tho triple alliance.

Testimony From Men Who Know That It I of Benefit to the Service and &
Help to the Army Why Desertions Increase
FORT CANBY, "Wash.. Jan, 10. Allow British flng waves. It nas been often
me to say a few words In refutation of
the remarks made on the canteen by Roy
D. Smith, of Hood Rher, In The Ore
gonian of January S, 190G. If Mr. Sntlth
had given the Ink on his name time to
dry in Washington, he might have found
out when thorc company funds were dis
bursed and have found the utility of tho
canteen; but being cold-footed, both of
the "wily goo-goo" and of lager beer, he
was mustered out. (R. I. P.)
I have been in the army during the time
when the canteen was a fixture and since.
Before the abolishment of the canteen
(which, by the way. is a word we have
adapted from the French, and means a
refreshment bar, and is really not a mis
nomer for the army equivalent, as Friend
Smith Implies). When men could obtain
light refreshments there they would rather
go there than to a saloon on the outside.
as it was to thcslr advantage to do so. Being
restricted to a reasonable amount of the
"amber-colored fluid." they could not get
drunk. They were carried home first. The
men were all within bounds, and when
the canteen close at "tattoo" (9:15 P.
M.) they could make their quarters easily
and be present for "check" (11 P. M.). Of
course there were turbulent spirits who
were not satisfied with a few glasses of
beer, and when the canteen closed went
out ot the garrison for more and "looked
for trouble." Since the abolishment of
the canteen, when everyone has to "tus-
car" outside garrison limits for his beer.
drunkenness, desertion and court-martials
have materially increased, the actual
reports showing an Increase of over 16
per cent. This Is due to the fact that
the above mentioned turbulent spirits get
more than they can carry, outside of the
garrison" limits, cannot make their quar
ters In time and are as a consequence
tried and imprisoned. This being re
peated becomes a cerious offense, and the
man, rather than serve a long time in
the "mill" (guard-housa) deserts. Not
only Is It the "bad men" 'who are thus
fooled by the "Insidious drink," but many
a good man has fallen by the wayside.
Therefore, better have been served within
bounds in the garrison than freely with
out Its limits.
As to the company dividends accruing
from various sources, the canteen Includ
ed. I ha j seen various ways of expend
ing It. Perhaps Mr. Smith's captain was
one of those parsimonious persons who
thought that the more company funds they
iiaa ana tne less they expended the more
credit they received. There are many
such, but. with all due respect to the
opinion of "the worthy veteran" whose
letter I am answering, let me say -that
the majority of captains In the army
freely expend their company funds for
the betterment of the mess and the com
fort of the enlisted men.
This has beon my experience in a few
more years' service than our worthy "re
cruit" mentioned.

Tills Old Soldier Takes Issue "With
cx-Privatc Smith
PORTLAND. Jan. 9. (To the Editor.)
in Sunday s issue I note an article. "One
view of the Canteen," narrated by Smith
of Hood River, who watched and stud
led the Army canteen subject In all of Its
different vicissitudes," as he terms It. He
starts out by telling how he enlisted in
Texas and ere he had been taught about
face was Informed that his credit was
good at the canteen for $3. He was also
Informed of a company fund of J10M to
be used for luxuries. He went on a prac
tice march, the canteen accompanying.
Afterwards he marched 30) miles ovor-
land to another station; he was dis
charged. He gives great praise to the
post commander at Fort Brown, for his
prohibitive measures, and claims deser
tions were few as In comparison to other
posts. But Mr. Smith enlists again after
his furlough expired.

Stafcs Army, under Generals Stoneman.
Wheaton, Granger. Canby. Brooks. How
ard and others, and a portion of my serv
ice was -when the old sutlers were in
vogue, who reaped a rich harvest. Later
on. we had post exchanges and canteens.
I think I am capable of judging the can
teen question more thoroughly than a
disgruntled recruit, who evidently was a.
oorn Kicaer.
Mr. Smith stigmatizes the canteen as
the "post saloon." He knows better than
that. It is .not so. The canteen system
gives the soldier the chance. If so In
clined, to drink 10 cents' worth of beer a
day. If he practices systematic economy,
and uses one check each day If beer he
must have for that is all the drink he
can buy at the canteen. It keeps him In
the garrison and away from the pitfalls
surrounding certain resorts. Tho canteen
affords diversion of social games and
breaks the monotony of camp life. In fact,
the canteen was really the enlisted men's
clubroom, of which they are now bereft
through the unbearable meddling of a
set of fanatics, who claimed "our boys
will become drunkards In the Army If the
canteen remains." This also Is false, be
cause thousands of enlisted men. and I
am one of those, never even drink other
than coffee or water. Their habits are
governed by the teachings they had at
home, berorc entering the Army. Why
Is a recruit, when first entering a com
pany, informed" of the fact that his credit
Is good at the canteen for 53? It Is be
cause he is usually "dead broke," thus
enabling him to get some luxuries. If ho
wants them (none Is compelled), until
next payday. It saves him "longing" for
money, which he would borrow from some
usurer. Even the brass checks are cash
among the boys, and, if he so wishes,
some one in the company will exchange
money for checks at par.
The greatest and most experienced offi
cers now In our Army deplore tho non
existence of the canteen, for reasons best
known to the old and well-experienced
soldier. The canteen was wholly a sol
dier's social resort and kept him from
In an Indirect way Smith Insinuates that
the canteen Is a cause of desertion and
court-martial. That is positively not so.
A bad soldier comes from bad citizens.
He gets Into the Army, misbehaves and
gets court-martialed. Thousands of en
listed men never get before a court. De
serters generally arc men who are of a
roving, dissatisfied disposition, and arc
not fit for anything in civil life, much less
in the Army. Some desertions arc no
doubt caused through ill-treatment, by
snob officers who may have been ap
pointed from civil life, and for want of
employment and through purchased back
ing, have sneaked Into the Army; but as
a rule our officers are thorough soldiers,
kind and civil to the enlisted men.
able incident that heretofore had escaped
notice, the Premier said:
At one time all the stations except the
Nicholas depot were In the hands of the
revolutionist. The latter in desperation
started a train hauling two cars loaded with
dynamite at .full speed for the station, with
the Intention of blowing It up. A frightful
disaster was averted by a timely warning of
the plot, which enabled the authorities to
have a military train .with steam up ready
on a parallel track. As the dynamite train
arrived, roldlers from the military train
running alongside fired at the engine and
managed to pierce the boiler of the locomo
tive, stopping the train before It reached Us
In St. Petersburg, the Premier further
remarked, enough dynamite had been
captured to destroy the entire city.
Relations of Two Houses.
In conclusion, he stated that two iaws

half elected. The latter would Include 34

It Is rumored that the revolutionists

have fled or arc fleeing abroad with the
intention, if the revolution is successful,
of confiscating their estates.

Forecast of Result of Morocco

French and German Views
of Points at Issue.
ROME, Jan. 10. It is probable, accord
ing to a competent authority, that the
Moroccan conference at Algeclrcas will
result In one of the following ways:
First In a rupture of the negotiations,
possibly leading to a conflict.
Second In the solution of tho several
problems to the satisfaction of all inter
ested powers: or.
Third In a mere academic discussion
which will leave the situation practlcally
It is generally believed, however, that
the first named is altogether unlikely.
The Mcssergero today In an apprecia
tion of Henry White, 'the American . Am
bassador who Is about to leave for Al
geciras to represent his government in
tho conference, says:
"America Is again about to make a
powerful contribution to the peaco ot
the world. It is is a noble mission for
this young people, who. desire to attain
a place In the history of this century,
which Is to mark the triumphs of civiliza
tion and the abolition of war."
Germa Delegate Says Minister Mls

PARIS, Jan. 11. With the approach of
the Algeciras convention on Moroccan re
forms, the newspapers devote greater
space to discussion of the question. Pub
lic opinion everywhere Is that the Issue
of the conference will be amicable has
been practically decided. The Journal's
Madrid correspondent sends an Interview
with the German Ambassador at Madrid.
Herr von Radowltz, who Is also the prin
cipal German delegate to the convention.
The Ambassador, the correspondent
says, has no doubt of the favorable Is
sue of the conference. He believes the
whole disagreement-Is due to the Moroc
can Minister's not understanding or mis
interpreting the words of the French Min
ister to Morocco, willfully or otherwise,
and says If the Sultan's delegates try to
prevent an agreement being reached by
the powers, as" It hag been suggested
they would do. they will find themselves
In a most serious situation. But the Am
bassador Is of the opinion that the Moroc
can delegates fully appreciate this and
will give no trouble.
