West Point. .Inn II. The congrcs
nlonal committee, which continued Uh
Investigation of hazing tit the military
ncademy until a Into hour lust night,
resumed Its Inquiry nt 9.30 o'clock this
Cadet John K. Heir, of New Jersey,
who wns ft classmate of Cadet Hooz,
imd who was one of his seconds In the
Keller light, said he had never Been to
hasco ciiuce Klvcn to Itooz. He Kald
ho was so disgusted with Uoox's con
duct In the light that after Booz had
refused to light again he never spoke
to him unless Hooz spoke first. He as
sorted that men's religious beliefs wero
respected at the academy. Exercising,
he said, had been done away with at
Vest Point, lint fighting still existed.
"Then this litis not become a Sunday
school Institution yet?" remarked Mr.
"No, sir."
Morr said ho had been told by former
Cadet Moigan that he had hazed Cadet
Krlnton until the latter fainted.
Mr. Drlggs asked him several ques
tions regarding notorious hnzers but
Ilerr could only remember the nanips
of men who had left the academy be
fore graduation.
"How Is It that you can only remem
ber the names of men who are not now
In the academy?"
"I have told you nil I remember, sir."
"Ton are not withholding anything?"
"No. sir."
In answer to Colonel Clayton, the
witness said that brutal hazors were
the kind of men who would be most
apt to (.ever their connections with the
academy lxjforo graduation.
"Did you know Cadet Bender?"
"Yes. sir."
"What was His reputation as a
"He was said to be the worst that
ever came here, ho left the academy
before finishing his course."
"He was bright, bold and brutal
wasn't he?" said Mr. AVanger. and
then udded, "his retirement was not
connected with hazing?"
"No, sir."
A Humane Hnzer.
The witness, in reply to Mr. Smith,
said ho had been dismissed from
the academy about a year ago, but
had gone to AVashington and secured
his reinstatement a week later. His
dismissal was connected with hazing
offences, of which the authorities had
beconiu cognizant. Ho had never hazed
a cadet to tho extent of his endurance.
"Then you nre a humane hazer, If I
may use tho expression?" said Con
Kressman Drlggs. "Do you distinguish
between cruel hazing, such as that
done by Bender, and humane hazing,
like that enforced by yourself and
others like you?"
"Yes, in a way, sir."
Cadet O. N. Tyler, of Maryland, an
other of Booz's seconds In the Keller
fight, took the stand next.
Ho described tho fight, but added
nothing new to what had already been
elicited from tho previous witness. He
acknowledged that ho had told Booz
that ho was a disgrace to tho corps.
This was In the evening of the day of
tho fight. In reply to Mr. Drlggs, tho
witness said that ho had been exer
cised almost to the point of exhaus
tion. "What heinous crime were you
expiating?" asked Mr. AVanger.
"I had done nothing, sir. I wns walk
Ins up the company street when Cadet
Ilarlee, who is now out of tho corps,
met me and told me to go to a certain
tent, where I would get a few points
on woodenness."
In reply to questions, he said be ha ;
been eagled 400 times, was required ti
hang from a stretcher, hold out In
dian clubs and sit on a box and hold
hla feet orf tho lloor. All this look
about an hour.
"AVero you very tired?" asked Mr.
Wanger, to which Tyler replied:
"I was very near to fainting, sir. I
got back to my lent nnd my tent-mato
helped mo to dress for parade, i at
tended tho parade, but my knees wero
very weak. I nlso had to do ruanl
duty that night." added tho witness.
"Were you laid up nfter this?"
"No, sir; I was pretty well fagged
all next day, but Iot along all iIbIT "
Afraid to Reveal Names.
The chairman asked Tyler the uunio
of the man who had hazed him, but
tho witness said: "I would rather not
. "Was it Harloe?"
"No, sir, Harlec sent me to tho tent.
It was a man who is now in the corps
ivho hazed mo."
Congressman Drlggs Insisted that the
witness should tell tht name, as tho
man ought to bo brought before the
committee, ho said to give some ex
planation. Tyler said that he did not
like to do so, as it might injure tho
man, who Is now near graduation.
Tho committee then went into exe
cutive session to discuss whether the
witness would have to answer.
During the time tho committeemen
were In executive hesslon in another
room tho witness sat still, but was so
affected that the tears ran down his
He was approached by a reporter
from a New York newspaper, who
poke to him In reference to tho queB-
reportcr was Immediately
unio his seat by Bergennt-at-
Arms Casson. Major Casson then re
ported tho matter to the committee
and on returning to the court room
General Dick addressed the reporter:
"Have you approached this witness
while we wore nway?"
"Yes. sir."
"Well, sir, you are excused from any
further sessions of this committee,"
said the chairman, nnd the reporter
Immediately left the room.
Then turning to the witness, who
seemed on tho point of breaking down,
(leneral Dick said:
"Mr. Tyler, the committee appreci
ates your franknets In answering
questions nnd all your embarrassment
tit this question, but It appears from
your testimony that no severer test of
hazing has been presented to this com
mittee. AVhllo this committee cannot
guarantee to prevent punishment. It Is
not tho Intention of iho committee to
secure punishment.
"The object of the committee Is to
secure evidence for presentation to
congress with a view to preventing a
recurrence of such practices. The
committee feels that It must Insist
that' you answer the question."
The Truth at Last.
Tyler iiitened intently to
word uttered and when the
innn finished speaking, the witness In
a faltering voice said:
"Cadet Evans, who has been since
expelled, nnd Cadet J. A. Barry, of
tho present first class."
Tho witness, in answer to some other
questions, said that nothing had been
done to force a man out of tho acad
emy, but the "cutting" of a man
seemed to have the desired effect.
Judge Smith questioned tho witness
at length on the cause of "calling out"
of Cadet Boo.
Tyler said that he una called out on
account of refusing to walk his post
properly and making an untruthful
statement In reference to it. Mr.
Smith read the copy of the report and
statement which was In reference to
relieving guard properly and the wit
ness was mistaken as to the matter
to which the report referred,
"Do the upper classmen attempt to
determine questions of veracity le
tween cadet otlleers and fourth class
men?" asked Mr. Smith.
"Yes, sir."
Congressman Drlggs, addressing tho
witness, said:
"Mr. Tyler, I want to exonerate you
with every cadet, and I may be frank
with you. This committee wants to
know all about the Booz case, the
Breth case and hazing. I will Insist
on answers, nnd 1 want you and every
cadet to know and understand that
we are here to get the facts and
that hazing must stop. AVo will shield
nobody. Now, I wunt you to tell me
of all tho cases of severe hazing."
"Cadet Carpenter was so severely
hazed that ho had to go to bed." said
the witness.
Looking over a list of the corps, the
witness mentioned the names of Ca
dets Shorldan, McArthur, Carpenter,
Albert, Alvord, Atnnierman, J. B. A.
Barry and C. B. Clark. The last throe
are not now In the academy. "Who
hazed McArthur?"
"There wero two men, of whom Cadet
Dockei y was one."
Case of Convulsions.
Tyler told of the hazing of Carpen
ter, one of his classmates. Cadet
Meyer, of the present first class, In
terrupted the hazers and made them
desist. Carpenter was put to bed, suf
fering from muscular convulsions. Ho
was nlso hysterical and delirious, but
was all right In the morning. He was
not attended by a physician.
"Do the cadets not call for a physi
cian when a man Is hazed Into con
vulsions?" asked Mr. Drlggs.
"I never knew of a doctor being
called In any case."
"What about McArthur?"
"Ho waa the worst case, sir. He had
convulsions and It took quite awhile
to bring him mound. I saw him In
bed, whimpering hysterically."
The witness mentioned other cases,
but could not remember the names of
the hazers.
In reply to the chairman, Tyler said
that the class which came here In '89
suffered from more severe hazing than
his class (the present third), to which
Booz belonged.
Since 1SD9 he said severe hazing had
been done away with and theiv was
no exercising now.

By nxcludve Wire, from The Associated Press.
AA'ashlngton, Jan. 11. In tho senate
today a vigorous attack was made up
on that portion of the army reorganiza
tion bill which confers upon tho presi
dent discretionary power to Increase
iho strength of tho army to the maxi
mum tliult fixed by the bill. Mr. Ba
con, of Georgia, began the attach, and
Mr. Piatt, of Connecticut, replying,
maintained that discretionary power
ought to be conferred upon the ptesl
dent and cxpressad astonishment that
anybody should entertain a fear that
tho power would be abused. Mr. Ba
con declared he would rather see his
party condemned to universal and
never ending banishment from politi
cal power than see such authority
placed In the hands of tho president.
An amendment opening tho way to
the appointment of volunteer officers
to grades as high ns that of captain In
iho ragular establishment was adopted.
An amendment offered by Mr. Hoar,
Mass., providing that no further mili

today. In all, 170 special pension bills

member of congress from Ohio and was
the author of the arrearage? of pension
act. The senate had passed a bill to
Increase his pension to $r,o and the

ment: "From a trustworthy source we learn
that Lord Salisbury has agreed to cede

Leading- financiers versed in Chinese

Faraman, France, Jan. 11. Tho pajn
sengers ami crew of tho French mall
steamship Itussle, which stranded ncaf
here during a violent storm on Monw
day, have been safely landed. Ono huin
dred and two lives were saved.
The lifeline which connected tha
wrecked vessel with tho shore parted
agnln yesterday afternoon, and -when
night set In communication with tho
Hussle was cut off. The last signalled
message read as follows:
"We have not a scrap of food left.
Consternation prevails on board,"
The fishermen at onco made ttvo
more plucky 'launches of their boat,
but they were beaten back by thn
waves, and when the Russia was last
descried through tho gathering dark
ness, those on board were apparently"
trying to launch their only remaining:
The storm raged with renewed fury
during the night, and only those ivho
were compelled to do so stayed on tho
beach, part of them huddlod beneath
a tarpaulin nnd others sought refuge
from the gale In the Faraman light
house. In the early hours of the morning
torches were lighted on the Russlc's
bow and in response, to the signal the
Carro fishermen made another effort
to reach the wreck with their life
boat. Again they wero tossed ashore,
drenched to the skin nnd suffering
from cold. A bonfire was built of
wreckage on tho beach.
At daybreak Ihe weather rwrrepttbly
moderated, tho M?a became calmer and
the wind shifted from east to north.
At about fi.30 a. m., the Carro flsh
eren ngaln put to sea. The spectators
watched with fast-beating hearts as
the boat disappeared through the
waves. More thnn once It was be

craft rose gallantly on tho crests of
the mis and gradually approached tho
Then a rope was thrown from the
Rusr.Ie. The fishermen caught it and
the life-boat wns noon nlongsld.
Above the bowling wind, the cries tot
jov from those on board were heard,
re-echoed on the shore.
Another iioat, manned by four men,
then succeeded In reaching the wieck
od vessel.
A few minutes later the Carro life
boat left the Hussle's side heavily la
den. As she approached the shore tho
occupnnts were seen to be women and
one baby
Tho enthusiasm was delirious. The
spectators plunged Into tho sea. Soino
dragged the lifeboat ashore and others
lifted the women out of tho boat and
carried them In their arms through
the waves. One woman was clasped
in the arms of her son, who had been
waiting on shore since Monday. Sho
swooned nnd had to bo carried to tho
lighthouse on a stretcher hastily con
structed from tho wrecknge nnd cov
ered with blankets. The other women
collapsed with fatigue, cold nnd want
of food. Their hnggard faces and

Passengers at Marseilles.

half past seven this evening. A great
crowd was In wnitlng at the station
to greet them. They were loudly

touching scenes ensued when tho suf
ferers met their relatives.
Lieutenant Gautherot, ivho was a
passenger on tho Hussle, In a detailed
story tells of the terrlblo anguish ot
thoso on board from Monduy morning,
when the vessel tan aground, until tho
day when they wero rescued. Ho said
they almost despaired of hope of being
rescued. All tho corgo was lost and
