MILES WILL NOT
Will Not Receive a Brevet For His
Services in Porto Rico.
ON THE RACK
President Appoints a Court of Inquiry
to Examine Into the Charges of
Commanding General, Regarding
Meat Furnished During the War.
New Yobk, Feb. 9. A dispatch to
the Herald from Washington says:
General Nelson A. Miles will not re
ceive a brevet for his conduct of the
campaign in Fprto Rico. This has been
decided upon by the board considering
the rewards to be given to officers and
men who performed acts of courage and
gallantry during the war.
It is asserted by members of the board
that their decieiou is not due to the feel
ing in administration circles against the
general, but to the fact that there is no
reward; which, under the statutes, can
be given him;' He could only be brevet
ed a lieutenant-general, and that office
doos not exist.
Should congress desire to recogniza
the service of Gen. Miles, it can pass a
resolution authorizing the president to
grant him the brevet of lieutenant-general.
Friends of the major-general may
try to get such a measure through con
gress. Much comment has been occasioned
in army circles by the failure of the war
department to consult with Gen. Miles
respecting the operations in the Phil
ippines. It -is stated by officials that
Gen. Otis has the situation fully in hand
and that it is Decessarv not to hamper
him with instructions of any kind.
Washington, Feb. 9. The president
has appointed a court of inquiry to ex
amine into the charges touching the
meat furnished during the war with
8pain and other matters involved in the
charges of Gen. Miles against the ad
ministration of war affairs. The court
will consist of Major-Gen. Wade,. Col.
George W. Davis, Ninth infantry, - and
Col. Gillespie, corps of engineers.
The court will meet in this city on
'February 15tb, to investigate the allega
tions of Miles as to the meat furnished
the army. The court will submit an
opinion upon the merits of the case, and
Miles' charges, together with such rec
ommendations of further, proceedings as
'may .be, warranted by the facts devel
.. oped in the course of inquiry. ...
'. Miles declined to discuss the appoint
ment of the court.

of that place will be made by the Amer

force now consists of battery. G, the
Sixth and Eighteenth regular, infantry
regiments, and half a .'signal company,

It is not unlikely that the demand for
the surrender of Iloilo will be refused.
In that event there will in .all probabili

with knives and spears.

- How to Prevent Pneumonia.
-You are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always results from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe. During the
epidemic of La Grippe a few years ago
when so many cases resulted in pneu
monia, it was observed that the attack
was never followed by that disease when
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy was used.
It counteracts any tendency of a cold or
La Grippj to result in that dangerous
disease. It is the best remedy in the
world for bad colds and La Grippe.
