this beef or anything; whatever was fur
nished the army under 'pretense of an
J SENATE NOW THE- '
'. Washington, Jan. 12. The most vig
orous and sensational testimony was
given before the war investigating com
mittee today by Commissary-General
Eagan, who appearing nnezpectedly to
meet the allegation against the beef is
issued in the war, vigorously arraigned
General Miles, commanding the army.
He denied numerous statements made
by Miles, charged that the latter's testi
mony constituted several reflections on
commanding generals of the expeditions
and referred to him as ''This same Com
manding General Nelson A. Miles," and
said: "Who ever called beef furnished
'embalmed beef, is a liar."
W. B Miles, in charge, of Armour &
Co. 'a plant, appeared for the packing
bouse. He testified aB to the quantity
of the canned meats and methods of inspection.
Commissary Eagan, in the course of
his testimony, called Gen. Miles, com
manding the army, "A liar, who lied in
bis throat, lied in bis heart, lied in ev
ery part of his body," who perpetrated
a gross scandal and" who should be
drummed out of the service and im
prisoned, and should be avoided by ev
honest man and barred from every club,
He characterized1 bis interviews as
"filth." Eagan's testimony on this
point was: -
"Miles was asked by your commission
bow tinned beef became part of the army
. rations. His answer was 'You had bet
ter ask the secretary of war or the com
issarygeneral. I think they can tell
you. I know it was sent to the army as
food, and the pretense is that it was
sent as an experiment.'' This he says,
not even giving credit to me for sending
it as an experiment, but that I furnished
it under 'pretense of an experiment.'
This serious charge should be made by
no man lightly, not without evidence to
"Taking it in the sense that it was prob
ably intended, the sense that will be ac
cepted by the country at large, the sense
that already the press ot the United
States has accepted it (indeed, some of
the press, because it called ' for my dis
missal from the army and my court
martial). I answer that it was not fur
nished under pretense of an experiment,
nor even as 'an experiment, and when
Miles'charged that it was furnished as a
'pretense of an experiment' he lies in
throat, he lies in his heart, lies in every
hair of hie head, and every pore of his
body. He lies wilfully, deliberately, in
tentionally and maliciously.
"If his statement is true that this beef
was furnished under 'pretense of an ex
periment,' then I should be drummed
out ot the army and incarcerated in
prison with the other, libelers. His
statement is a scandalous libel, reflect
ing'npon the honor of every officer in
the department; who has contracted
for or furnished this meat, and especial
ly and particularly on the commissary
general, myself. .
"In denouncing Miles as a liar when
be makes this statement.I wish to make
it as emphatic and coarse as the state
ment itself. I wieh to force the lie back
into bis throat, covered with the con
tents .of a camp latrine! I wish to brand
it as a falsehood of the ' whole cloth,
without a particle of truth to sustain it,
and unless he can prove bis 'statement,
he should be driven out of clubs', barred
from the society of decent people, and
so ostracized that the street bootblack
would not condescend to epeak to bim,
for he has fouled his .own nest, he has
aspersed the honor of a brother officer
without a particle of evidence or fact to
sustain in any degree the f scandalous,
libelous,' malicious falsehood, viz: That
California Volunteers- Preparing For
the Muster Out
ClerMiB SpaMe Will Probably Be Re:
luM There. .
Vancodve, Wash., Jan. 12. Since
the receipt of the telegram . directin g
the mustering out of the . battalion of
the Eighth California volunteers, now
stationed here, the -men and officers
have been busy putting their affairs in
shape to turn over tq their successors,
when they are designated.
There is a report that a troop of the
Fourth cavalry, now stationed at Fort
Walla Walla, will be eent here, but no
orders have been issued to that effect,
and officers in position to know do not
know what troops, if any, will be sent.
. It ia possible that the small detach
ment of men from the' Fourteenth in
fantry, comprising those who returned
from Alaska, and a few men who have
returned from Manila, will be expected
to do the duty of eight companies.
The volunteers expect to be able to
leave here within two weeks, and the
men who relieve them will probably be
ordered to this point within the next
few days. ' J -
; No Columbia Dock Soon.
Washington, Jan. 11. Senator Mc
Brldn has determined to leave no stone
nnturned to secure a dock for th
Columbia riyer, but it looks a little
doubtful of getting anything of the kind
at this session of congress. The sena
tor has introduced two propositions tor'
this purpose and is trying to have them
made a part of the naval appropriation
bill. T The fact that the government has
entered upon the construction of several
new docks throughout the country will
probably prevent anything being done
for the Columbia just now. It is gener
ally conceded that, more docks are
needed, but just where they will be lo
cated and when they will be built is yet
a question for the future to decide.
- Suicided on the Street.
Butte. Mont.' Jan.' 11. Albert James
Lee, aged 35, who came here 15 months
ago from Chicago as aesistant steward
at the Butte hotel, committed suicide on
Broadway, one of the main business
streets of the city, by shooting himself
through the head. Lee was separated
from bis wife, and for some months past
had been doing odd jobs about town;
Tbia morning he went; to the bank,
drew $50, bought a revolver, and went
to the office of Dr. L. E. Holmes, who
was treating him for' a secret 'disease.
Coming out of the office, he placed, the
pistol to bis head and fired.
And the Present Indication . is That
They Will Make a Vigorous Fight
in Order to Get Them The Tilt
Between the Governor and the
Senate Amicably Settled.
Capitol, Salem, Jan. 12. While the
clerkship equabble ia disposed of, for
the time being at least, in the house, it
is by no means yet settled in the senate.
The house submitted to the inevitable
with good grace, and will endeavor to
struggle through the session with a
greatly reduced ciaricel force. Most of
the committees will perhaps be able to
get along with the allowance given them
under the resolution passed yesterday,
and those that require more assistance
will have no difficulty whatever In get
In the senate the matter remains in
status quo, and the prospect is that the
present force of clerks will be consider
ably increased before the honorable sen
ators will have peace of mind.
The tilt between the governor and the
senate over the unconfirmed appoint
ments of the board of regents of the
state university yesterday morning
promised to lead to some racy and in
teresting developments, but with the
concession of the senate yesterday after
noon, represented . by the returning of
the appointments to the chief executive,
I'tbese prospects vanished. The gover
nor's right to recall the appointments
was conceded, and the hitherto friendly
relations existing between the governor
and senate have been restored.
The result of., the return of the ap
pointments, it is predicted,' will effect
only one of ex-Governor Lord's appoint
ees. 'This appointee is ex-Secretary of
State Harrison B. Kincaid, who will
probably be relieved on political grounds,
