Applications Must Reach War Depart-
nient Through Proper Channels.
, 'Washington, Sept. 81. The 'follow
ing statement is given out at the war
department: . v - 7
"The war depfurtment fa just at
present undergoing an experience
which illustrates the alacrity with
which the average American citizen
hastens to his senator or representative
in congress for aid in emergencies.
"The oessation of hostilities and the
improbability of their renewal, with
the dullness of camp life, hag appar
ently created a feeling of restlessness
among the men of the volunteers army,
who, in the majority of cases, have
given up positions of larger oompensa
tion, and many of whom are imploring
their political representatives to obtain
their discharges, and the latter,, in
turn, are il coding the war department
with requests for prompt and immedi
ate action. To such an abuse of privi
lege has this grown that'the war depart
raent has been obliged to call dtten'
tion to that paragraph of the army reg
illations which requires that all com -
muniotlons from subolintes to super
iors must pass through military chan-
nels, arid decline- as a rule to entertain
applications for discharges of enlisted
men 'unless they come to it in the prop
er manner. , k' -: f
"A soldier who is desirous of Scour
ing his discharge,: and has-good1 and
sufficient reasons upon which td base
it, will save himself a great amount
of tine and trouble if he will set 'forth
the reasons for his discharge in a letter
addressed to the adjutant-general of the,
army and hand it to the captain of hie
company, who, in turn, is required to
pass it along through brigade, division
and corps headquarters, with their re
commendation. . Unless this is done, the
department will send the paper baok to
the company commander for his re'com
mendation, and that takes time, Which
may be saved by following the propel
rule. " ' ':.: ;,;;'.'''' '-.
"The 'department has also promul
gated 1 another 'ruling in this conneo
tion, which is to-the. effect thdt pub
lie policy will not permit at this time
the oonsideratipn of applications for
discharges of men serving in the Phil
ippines, Honolulu, Cuba and Porto
Rico. The reasons for this are obvi
ous. Aside irom the question ol trans
portation involved, and the necessity
of supplying the places of men who
are to be discharged with others from
the States, it is to be remembered that
the-war is not over, and that much de
pends upon the results and delibera

she' has at hand. Every one is sur
prised that O. F. 'Williams, United

I am satisfied that if Consul-General
Wildman, who has lived among the
Malays. And is familiar with Biitish
colonial methods,' were given powjsr,
he could arrange 'satisfactory with Ag

indignation here at the fact that 'there
wqre 123 deaths during the voyage
among the 1,000 Spanish soldiers who
have just arrived in Spain on board the
Spanish transport San lgnacio Ralelero,
from Santiago de Cuba. The Spanish
attribute this heavy rate to the "inhu
manity of the Americans in obliging
the sick Spaniards to embark and make
roam in the hospitals for Americans."
