"I cannot but believe, that whether -lithe admonition was or was not given • to Admiral Sims, the disclosure uader •Almost any circumstances must receive the disapproval of every Ameri'-can,-"^ said Senator Walsh. Senator McCormick (Rep.)

"Replying to an inquiry by Senator rBorah (Rep.), Idaho, whether Admiral • .; Sims .volunteered his letter", Chairman. i-Eale-of the decorations sub-committee ssaid: ' ' "The admiral produced it because I insisted I'am entirely willing to take .•=all- responsibility." .Declaring .that Admiral Sims could -not object if the committee ordered tbe t. fetter's production. Senator Bora'h • said he thought the -senate was ••making a mountain .out of a mole hill in ' this entire affair." The warning given to Admiral'Sim's -against letting the. Brjtish "pull the -wool" over his eyes was approved by ^Senator Borah, who said the official it should lie commended. "I don't see anything to censure .-.either Secretary Daniels or the ndinir- -nl." said Mr. Borah. "It was a very •proper admonition, and I regret flint :• the secretary has denied it." Senator Walsh said the whole ques- •'• lion was over disclosure of confidential orders by the admiral, and 'Sena- --tor Thonias (Dem.), Colorado, said it j seemed to him that there was "gross ' _ • violation of somebody's confidence." . Senator Plielan . (Dem.), California, .inquired whether the committee's investigation pruposeil to consider censure of Admiral Sims if he acted ini- • .properly, and Senator Hale 'replied that the whole field would be Covered, .'including genera,! investigation of the -•conduct of the war in connection with maval matters. -\ General Barnett Opposes Sims.

Thjgre was "no heed fqc a nolicy ' aroniulgated.- by-.-the -secretary" regard- Ing 'medal; awards," he explained, because ;the:law, authorizing the decorations was sufficiently explicit'.to guide commanding;,, officers., .in. ..submitting their .recommendations. • His ow.n'rec6nji'mendatioiis as 'to' ma- rine''officers \yho j /served in tlVe, tjnitea States -were' not 'followed in the majority of cases, • General Bdmert-: asserted, and he had expressed regret to Mr. Daniels, who told him "that the line had to be drawn somewhere if tlie value .of. the medals was not to be depreciated."
