Court of Inqnlrj- Exonerates Them on Cb»rg*» Made By Mile*. WASHINGTON, May 9. — President WeKinley has given ont the report of the Wade court, which inquired into the army beef, and it was promulgated in official orders to the army. The court's findings are in no sense a whitewash. It declares that General Miles' charges of "embalmed" beef were not sustained, bat that his allegations as to the unsuitableness of canned roast beef "under the conditions existing^ 1 were justified. The Court finds that the refrigerated beef was not treated with chemicals, that the canned roast beef was not damaged for food by parboiling, and that t is "impossible to conclude that either the canned, fresh, or roast beef, or refrigerated beef, appears to any appreciable extent as a cause of intes- linal diseases.' 1 This is regarded as a thorough vindication of the meat General charges against refrigerated beef, for failing to report his suspicions promptly to the secretary of war, and for neglect- ng to confer with the officials of the war department concerning the components of the ration which should tie issued to troops serving in the tropics. The court censures former Commissary General Eagan for his unwarranted and reckless action in ordering the purchase of such enormous quantities of food (canned roast beef) that was practically untried and unknown," which act the court pronounces "a colossal error for which there is no palliation." Various officers of the commissary and quartermasters' departments are blamed for neglect as respects the time consumed in the transportation of refrigerated beef from cold storage to troops and for faulty arrangements in its delivery and its care after delivery.
