A Sensation in Both Services.
"When the Inti'iviow with Oni-nil
IMIlc.s upiiL-ared it nttraeteil consldor
tiblo nttontion nlllciiilly, but .'iCtcr the
lupsi- of two days without tiny sign of
otlK'lul iiotlnn tin- I'oiulusion became
K'-noral that it would be Ignored. There-iifi-,
the publication this ul'tPt-noon of
the full i'one.siiindi'iu'p ci-t-atuil a sen
satlon in army anil naval circles. What
the result will be cannot be foretold,
althoiiRh It is assumed that (lone-rat
Jlik-s will submit without furl her com
ment. The nearest parallel to this case of
late years, escludlntr the Incidents 1-011-iiectod
with the celebrated beef inquiry,
was that of Ilea Admiral Ulcluml "VV.
Jleade, who, upon returning frnm a
cruise hi Veuesiuehin water with the
white squadron, Rave tin interview to
the New York Tribune altackinpr the
administration of President Cleveland
lor lack of vIroi- in dc-alln-"- with the
Venezuelan question. The outcome of
that case was the early retirement of
the rear admiral from active service.
That (iciieral Jllles appreciates tlie
situation Is shown by the deep concern
lie manifested yesterday and his fre
quent visits to the olllce of Secretary
Hoot. It was necessary lor him to write
two letters to meet the demands of the
department, and even then there was
no expression of satisfaction nu the sec
retary's part at the second explanation.
However, Secretary Hoot himself re
gards the Incident as closed. At least,
he does not propose to take any furtlmr
action unless obliged to do so.
Cleneral Jllles was at the secretary's
door almost as soon as the olllce opened.
He had a verbal explanation to make,
and this ho accompanied by a letter,
-'eeretary Hoot took the letter to the
white house and talked with President
Jtuosevelt, with a iov to deciding
whether or not the explanation was
satisfactory. When the secretary re
turned to the war department, Cleneral
Allies called upon him again, and sup
plemented his ilrsl letter with it further
explanatory note, This also was sent
to the white house.
The President's Furwose.
The fact that, simultaneously with
the publication of the Jllles correspond
ence, Soereiarv Hoot gave out a copy
of Secretary Long's letter directing that
Muclny's resignation be requested.tnkeii
in connection with the publication of
the Until chapter of the Kchley case, so
far as It has llgured before the navy
department. Is taken as an indication
of the president's purpose to clear the
ulllclal records of all pending- Issues in
that matter. Secretary Hoot's publica
tion of the MiiL-lny letter is explained
by the fact that ho left the white houso
soiiin time, alter Secretary Ming' had
been there, and thus was In 11 position
to carry out the president's latest wish.

"Washington, Xec. ;!2. Final action.

AS usual .Maurice left the office at
half past four, bought a newspap
er at the comer and read It on his
way home In the street cur. lie passed
over the reports of the Schley contro
versy and the latest football game,
nud turned directly to a column which
told, as the headlines heralded, or "An
other Hui'Klary In tin Mast Knd Hat.
The sixth in two weeks. llui'Klar be
lieved to be a. woman." lie read this
through slowly, feeling rather clad that
his salary, which he had drawn the
day before, was safe In bank, instead
of in the left hand pocket of his gray
trousers, where he usually left Ii for a
day or so sifter pay day.
The papers seemed full of the rob
bery, The second pane had an inter
view with the chief of police, the third
an editorial on this progress of crime,
and tho fifth blossomed forth with let
ters from "Veritas" and 'Vltlssen" on
tlie true duly of a sentleman towards
a woman burglar whom he found rob
bing his house. This Interested .Maur
ice exceedingly. Ho was Just medi
tating over the terms of si letter which
should completely crush "Junius" and
prove that the gentleman's duty to the
hilly was to hand her over to the po
llen as quickly as possible, when the
conductor shouted "Arch," and he had
to gel off tlie car. Hn was still con
sidering the letter as he entered the
apartment house where he and Huck
ley, his pai liter, had their rooms: and
II occupied Ills mind completely as he
rode up in tlie elevator. He was so
abstracted that he didn't think It un
usual when he found the outer door of
the Hut locked, lie Just look out his
lulch key and entered so quietly that
he didn't disturb In the slightest a re
markably attractive young woman who
was busy emptying tho top drawer of
"Hello there!" remarked Maurice,
The young laily turned swiftly with a
motion towards a little bag she carried
at her waist,
"So there's where you keep 11, eh?"
Maurice continued. "No, you needn't
trouble to tiil'u It out, I'vo oiu my
self and though I'd ha to to be rude to
n lady, I think l could get mine out
"Who are you-.'" asked the youus
woman, "anil what In the world are
you talking about'.'"
"I'm the fellow that lives here." re
plied Maurice. "I'm talking about tho
revolver you've got In that bag."
"Why there's nothing In It but 11
handkerchief," said the young lady,
"What made you think I hud n pistol?"
"You don't mean to say you go bur-
l-lailng without n sun," said Maurice;
"and Where's your musk'.' why you're
anaituurlsh. I could do better myself."
"In other words," said the young
lady, "you take 1110 for "
"Tho huly burglar," sold Maurice,
"and a very handsome one you make.
You'ro not very foxy, though, or you'd
linvo found out when I como home
from olllce and not let mo blunder In
on you this way."
"Well, I'm rather Inexperienced," said
the youns' lady, with a smile.
"Six In two weeks:" said Maurice.
"lCxcuse me. but what do they call ex
perience In your line?"
"Oh, I didn't do all those others," re
plied the young woman "this Is my
llrst venture. I don't even know who
the other one is. I just followed her
general model. Thank you for the sug
gest ion. Hereafter, when I rob si tlat,
I'll take care to find when the owner

'The Evening Diary' you have there?
Head Junius on the duty of a true gen
tleman." "Yes, but I don't agree with him,"
answered Maurice, "I'm on 'Citizen's' "
side and I was just thinking, coming,
coming up in the elevator, that If I hail
my typewriter hern I'd dictate a letter
that would make 'Junius1 cruwtlsh and
lay 'Veritas' cold."
"Perhaps I'll do," suggested the burg
lar, "I'm a stenographer by profession
and if you have a machine here 1 could
do It easily. Itegiilat' rates nf course."
"The very thing'," answered Maurice,
producing' pencil and paper, "are you

burglar. Maurice commenced the let

he hastened to add, seeing signs of ris

Thu young lady didn't seem to enjoy
being called an imitation.
"Are you going to call thu police, or
are you not?" she asked sharply.
"Well, yott know, as a gentleman"
"Then yon do agree with 'Junius' af
ter all." The burglar f-eemed to think
she had him there,
"No." he. confessed boldly, "I'll be
merciless to the female burglar In the
abstract but somehow you'ru different."
The burglar beamed on him
