SAILORS THREATEN STRIKE
XAVAL IXQCIRY OF RECORDS
OF PRISONERS REQUESTED,
Denial of Inefficient Discipline
by Secretary Roosevelt Is Fol
lowed by Demand.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 12. Appoint
ment of a naval court of inquiry to
investigate the record of the more
than 2000 men returned to the service
from the Portsmouth prison during
the war on recommendation of Com
mander Thomas Mott Osborne and the
effect of this policy upon the general
efficiency, of the- navy has been re
quested by Captain J. K. Taussig of
the naval war college at Newport,
it was learned today.
Captain Taussig's request, made in
a letter to the judge advocate-general
of the navy, was the result of
Assistant Secretary Roosevelt's con
tradiction of recent charges by Taus
sig that the effect of returning these
men to ships had been detrimental
both to discipline and efficiency in
war time. Mr. Roosevelt declared the
records showed that "more than 70
per cent of the men returned to the
service had made good.
Commander Osborne has tendered
his resignation from the naval re
serve force, and asked Secretary Dan
iels to accept it as soon as his suc
cessor at Portsmouth can be chosen.
Naval officials said Commander Os
borne's resignation had no connec
tion with charges of immorality
among inmates at the prison submit
ted by, agents of the department of
justice several months ago. They said
he 3rst presented his resignation some
time before the charges were made
but later withdrew it.
