WdBhlngton, Nov. U.—General Hreck- Inridse EOV« hln testimony before the war invoBtlRHtlng commission. He had, he imliJ, gone to Cuba UH Inspector general, arriving nt Tumiia June 5. He had observed cursorily the preparation for the disembarkation of troops before the expedition left, und hud concluded thut they were quite. Inddequale. "I innde no report, however, as Gen- erul Miles was on the ground and could observe for himself." Continuing, he said there was no prennration fur landing In the face of on enemy other than thut which the nnvy might furnish. So far as he had observed there were only two lighter* nnd two scows Bucurod on behalf of the army before the departure from Tumim. It WUR Ills understanding, however, that the urmy und navy were co-op»rattiiB In this expedition. Speaking of the ronlllet of authority on the transports, ho said the masters of the vessels did not respond as promptly us might have been desired. "True," he wild, "there was a little navy cadet on hoard each of the vessels, but he hud no authority. An actual naval officer or an officer of the quartermaster's department on each ves- *.;! would have been better. What was needed wuu piornpt communication between the commanding officer and the vessels, nnd the musters of the transports did not respond very promptly." -iCcrUilii Tlicro Was » Plan. He wos questioned nt some length concerning the conduct of the campaign In front of Santiago, und replied that the result was what he had expected it would'be. Evetrything there, he said, w:is strained to get men on hoard, and consequently there was comparatively little effort to secure equipment. While he knew nothing definitely of the plans of the campaign, he was sure there was a plan. He wus quite certain from a conversation he had had with General Miles that he had a plan, though he did not say that his was the plan carried Into effect. "Of course," suggested ex-Governor Beaver, "Santiago was the goal of »he campaign." "Certainly. The fact was published so extensively in the newspapers that many of the men on board the vessels would not accept this Information as to the destination as correct.' Asked his opinion as to the result of the campaign, he said he thought It was consistent with the character of the men who conducted—what was to be expected from the limitations of General Shatter. "I think It would have been different If General Miles had been In command—that It would have jbcen more satisfactorily conducted. I think he has more of the spark and senlus of command than any man In the army, and I am sure that if he had had charge he Vonld have been In the front rank." Believed It llio lord's War. Ex-Governor. Woodbury suggested thai the buttle In front of San Juan had been fought and the victory won within eight days of landing. General Breck- Inrldge, In reply, said the victory had been won "when General Toral's nerve gave out." This, he continued, had been the war of all others when success had been won in Its earliest stages. He believed that the war was the Lord's war, and that this wonderful success WP.S due to his supervision. The time for the battle was, however, short enough. Yet it must be remembered that the distance between the battlefield and Slboney was less than a day's march, but while he considered the result us marvelously commendable he did not feel that General Shatter was above criticism In the conduct of the campaign. He could not believe the result was a miracle, but he ascribed the outcome to the fact that the army was one which was capable of meeting all calls. "No matter how It was tangled up, he said, "It went to victory." He had at the time quoted Lord.Beresford when he said to his army upon a certain occasion: "I have led you Into a devil of n fix, and it Is now your duty to light like hell to get me out of It." He wa* sure at least thnt all engaged In the war had acted with zeal, and every man had dot;* Che best of which he was capable, nnd he hnd never known a war lii which there was not criticism at the close of It. Wlinro Ho Cuiil.l He of Service. General Breckinridge spoke of the Inspector general's office as having been emasculated by the order requiring thu reports of subordinates In that otllce t,i be made to the adjutant general, and said thut when he discovered this was HO he went Intu the field us offering the only arena In which he could be of real servl.v He lia.1 Intended to say In effort "there is the desk In my olllce, do us you please with It. General Hanger was there; he. too, Is from Michigan. 1 thought he could lake control of the oltlce if It was desired, but lie did not 'continuing his testimony bearing upon th« Inspector generul'H duties, he said that his criticism of the change was bused on the fuel that H deprived the central authority securing Information uiid us u .'onseiiui-iU'C the ollloe was practically useless. "The order had the effect of cutting the Umbilical chord" he Huld, "und the dmilutlon WIIB not good." As u result of the change, when he hud asked for fuels In the otllce to Include in his report he hnd full-'d to find liny there. Iti'suiiiing his remarks of u general haractcr, General llivoklnrldge ex- ressed the opinion that there hud not enough Mghll»B to obHcure other efiiilU common In war. He thought he evils which hud been experienced v.-re Inevitable under our Amerlcuil ystcm He condemned tills system us mmt reprehensible und Kuld the volun- eer soldiers must always suffer the worst of the consequences.

Slmfli-r. Replying to a question from Mr. Woodbury he said that "Considering the system he thought the government bad done fur better In KB conduct of the war than anybody had expected mid just about one-fourth u» well us It should have done." General McCook asked General Breckinridge If he hud Visited General Shutter In his tent when the latter was ill at Santiago and General Breckinridge replied that he hud done so. "Hid he then offer the command of the army to you as has been reported In the press?" General Breckinridge replied: "I very much prefer not to answer that question. You should ask General Shutter. Such a conversation as occurred between General Shatter und myself on that occasion is rtot of a character to be spoken of lightly. 1 fall to see how a reply from me would promote the object of your Inquiry. You want to know what General Shatter did, not what he may have thought of doing. If General Shatter hns not repeated the conversation I ought not to do so." "As u matter of fact he did not turn the command over to you?" suggested Governor Beaver, to which General Breckinridge responded "No, he did not. and 1 do not think there Is any Impropriety in my saying that he could not have done so." With this the matter was allowed to drop nnd General Breckinridge was excused. Oor Conat l)ufenBCH. Cleveland, Nov. 16.—Colonel Jared A. Smith, United States government engineer, has just returned here after a month's absence, largely spent In inspecting the Atlantic coast defense and especially the harbor defenses at New York, Boston and Portland, Me. "Our harbor defenses," said Colonel Smith, "while not yet completed, are sufficiently far advanced that It would be suicidal for a warship of any foreign country to enter any of these harbors, if we objected. A great deal of work is yet necessary to be done, but work Is being pushed forward rapidly." DUpntoh from General Otis.

Ing defeat for Mrs. Curse and her coworkers, was u very bitter one, beginning at the morning session, lasting through the afternoon and ending shortly before 8 o'clock In the evening. I.ildy Somemcr» letter. The sensation of the morning was the reading of Lady Somerset's letter, taking strong grounds against the retaining of the Temple. After It had been read Mrs. Carse asked that a letter I-ndy .Somerset had written favorable to the Temple in May also be read. This letter was not Immediately forthcoming. During the noon recess the anti-Temple delegates distributed a catechism. In it Mrs. Carse was Indirectly accused of wanting to get the Woman's Christian Temperance union to stand behind the Temple stock In order that she might control the Temple finances and management and It was declared that it would take the Woman's Christian Temperance union 400 years and an expenditure of $10,000,000 to pay for the Temple at Its present rate of progress. Mrs. Cnrso 1> Aggremlve. "The last Is not yet heard of the Temple," said Mrs. Matilda B. Carse. "It will come un again and we will make another effort to save it. The whole scheme Is rank repudiation and nothing else The rejecting of the Temple enterprise -cannot be otherwise construed." "•• . At the opening of next day's session Mr? Carse began her campaign. The resolution offered by Mrs. Dunham of Iowa in behalf of Mrs. Carse was called by President Stevens. Owing to the few Temple supporters present at the opening hour, Mrs. Dunham asked that the resolution be made a special order for 3 o'clock. A special effort is being made by the Temple trustees to rally a strong vote to pay off the Temple trust bonds and many believe this to be the real reason of the withholding of the resolution. The resolution reads: "Resolved, That in view of the hearty indorsement given by the national convention In Boston, 1891. to the Temple trust bonds, that indorsement decided many to purchase the bonds, and that the moral obligation thus Incurred by the national union toward Wic bondholders has been acknowledged again and again. We hereby pledge our cooperation to the board of the Temple trustees in the retirement of the Temple trust bonds." Mono of Contention Now Gone. Mrs Helen Morton Barker, the na- tk,nal treasurer, said: "This Temple has been a bone of contention In every national convention for tenyears. There has never been a convention but some of our strongest women did not oppose tho retention of the building. Year by year more of our women became convinced that the scheme was not practicable. The great sums asked for the debt drained our unions and year by year the opposition grew until today you all see the result." Mrs. Caroline F. Grow, manager of the Temperance Publishing association, said. "1 am rejoiced that the discussion was all In a Christian spirit and I believe It will live as a E|mt object lesson to the world. The VvTC. T. U. now begins a new era of progress." Mm.

SON Mrs. Stevens then stated she wanted to nominate Miss Anna A. Gordon, who had been Miss Willard's private secretary, and is probably one of the moat beloved of the union leaders, to be vice provident at large. The by-laws were then amended to give the president the authority to make such nomination, and the nomination was immediately made and the election following by a rising unanimous vote. Miss Gordon returned thanks. Other Officers Elected. By a vote of 204 of 353 ballots cast Mrs Susanna M. D. Fry, editor of The Union Signal, was elected national corresponding secretary to succeed Mrs. Katharine Lente Stevenson. Mrs. Clara C.
