NEITHER WILL IT
Findings Will Probably be the Effect
That the Fresh Beef Was not
Chemically Treated, but that
Grounds for Suspician That it Was
So Treated Existed.
New Yoek, April 21. A. special to the
Herald from Washington Bays: General
Miles will not altogether be sustained by
the findings of the beef conrt of inquiry,
if the general opinion about the war de
partment as to what these findings will
be is correct. It is understood the court
will complete its work and forward its
final report to the secretary of war some
time next week, and although no authori
tative statement as to the finding can be
made, such information aa can be gath
ered tends to indicate that the report
will not completely sustain all the alle
gations made by Major-General Miles,
nor will it completely dismiss them.
' By the order convening it, the conrt
was directed to investigate allegation
made by General Miles as to the unfit
ness for issue of certain articles of food
furnished to the troops in the field in
Cuba and Porto Rica and to submit with
its findings of fact such recommendations
as to further proceedings as must seem
to be warranted by the fact developed.
The opponents of General Miles made
no secret of the fact that it was expected
that the court would find the allegations
of General Miles entirely without founda
tion, and would recommend that pro
ceedings be instituted against him.
These expectations will not be realized,
and the probability is that the conrt
will not recommend any further proceed
ings either General Miles or any one
Among officers of the army it is be
lieved that the findings will ..be that the
charge made by General Miles that the
refrigerated beef was treated with chemi
cles has not been proved, though there
was some ground for a reasonable sus
picion, and that some of it has been so
treated ; that the canned beef was good
when purchased, bnt that it spoiled
easily in the climate of Cuba and Porto
Rico, and that it was not suitable for
issue as the main part of the meat ration
to troops engaged in field operations in
It is probable that the court will make
recommendations as to the best method
of supplying the army with fresh meat
in the fntnre, and it may advise that
special investigations into this question
be made to the' commissary department.
Washington Dispatch Says He Had

Washington, April 21.--Ex-Governor
Lord, of Oregon, has declined the tender

ing received by the Associated Press
In relation to the appointment of ex-
Governor Lord to the office of minister
.to Persia, and his declination, Hon.
Joseph Simon, United States senator
form Oregon, who is a warm personal
friend or Mr. Lord, this morning eaid :
"The statement that ex-Governor
Lord was an applicant for the Peruvian
mission or any other diplomatic mission
is not true. The president, recognizing
ex-Governor Lord's ability and devotion
to party, felt kindly disposed to him and
anxious to appoint, him to some good
position when the opportunity should
present itself. It appears lhat the Per
sian mission was the first to present
itself to the president, and this he tend
ered to Mr. Lord, not knowing, of course,
whether it would be accepted or not.
Mr. Lord has seen fit to decline this post
of honor, and that is about all there is
"In regard to the statement that ex-
Governor Lord was an applicant for the
mission to Pern, I know that he was not. 1
The first private dispatch from Washing
ton announced that the post tendered ex
Governor Lord was the mission to Peru.
This was evidently a mistake in trans
mission. Ex-Governor Lord might have
accepted this office, and might not.
This mission is a better one from a finan
cial point of view than the ministry to
Persia, and, besides, would have been
better suited to Mr. Lord by reason of
being so closely identified with our own
republic. But Mr. Lord has never been
an applicant for any diplomatic posi

Fate of Lieutenant Gilmore's Party
Remains a Mystery..
New York, April 21. A dispatch to
the Herald from Manila says : Admiral
Dewey, in an interview today, said the
expedition of the gunboat York to n to
Baler was purely to rescue the Spanish
soldiers and privates who are being be
seiged in a church there. The soldiers
refused to surrender when expected to
lay down their arms by General Rios at
the end of the Paris peace conference.
Admiral Dewey eaid he did not know
what had become of Lieutenant Gilmore
and the 14 men in the launch,' ; They
had been sent to sound the month of
the river, but went beyond the bend,
out of sight of the Yorktown. The sup
position is they were captured or killed
by tbe Spaniards or the 400 Insurgents
who are besieging the Spanish garrison.
Admiral Dewey declines to say. what
steps be will take toward a punitive ex
General Rios, the Spanish commander
when interviewed, said be did not think
the garrison at Balar knew tbe war be
tween the United States and Spain bad
ended.' He had sent an officer in Jan
uary to tell the garrison to surrender.
The garrison refused to surrender, either
not believing tbe officer or fearing they
would be trapped by the insurgents.
Since then General Rios - has had no
communication with the garrison, and
this is the first information that the
Spanish flag is still flying at Baler.
" He thought the Americans were shot
by the insurgents, as the 'Spaniards
themselves are besieged and have no
way of getting to the river. General
Rios said that he bad not been con
General Otis doubted whether tbe
proposed exchange . of Filipino - for
Spanish prisoners would succeed, as tbe
insurgents are holding the Spaniards in
the hope that it will help their cause,
They are not eeeking money.
. The letter containing General Rios'
laBt appeal to Aguinaldo said , the sur
render of the Spanish prisoners would
create a bond of sympathy between the
Filipinos and Spain.
