Auont be Tried Attract V: Attention Among People In the War NaTj March accusa- tions of cruelty on the part of army and navy officers to subordinates, as charged in the casesof private Wild and the sail- ors on board the United States steam- ship Enterprise, have created a great deal of gossip in army and navy circles here. Within ihe next few weeks courts-martial will probably be under way, one trying Lieutenant Steele, of army, at Fort Snelliug, Minn., for persecuting and imprisoning a private soldier for refusing to perform menial services for him, and the other trying Commander McCalla, of the navy, at Brooklyn, for cutting down with his a sailor for a breach of naval regulations. two cases coming so close together have attracted unusual attention. Even in departmental circles, where the cases have been topics of conversa- tion, it is not an unusual thing to hear the practice of cruelty by army and navy officers roundly denounced. Brutality on the part of officers! it is maintained, is not at all necessary to the proper en- forcement of discipline. In the casecof Lieutenant Steele, General Crook is now preparing a court-martial for his trial. Officially the case of Commander Mc- Calla, of the Enterprise, has not been called to the attention of Secretary Tracy, but as soon as it la the Secretary will doubtless follow the example of Secretary Proctor and order a court- martial to ascertain all the facts in the Private advices received here re- specting the two cases mentioned a cor- roborate the newspaper accounts which have been published about them.

Tke Constitutionality of Speaker and the Action of the Majority Will Then Paused Upon. WASHINGTON, March pursuance of the statement made by Mr. Carlisle recently that the unseating of Mr. Pen- dleton, of West Virginia, will come up in the courts, Mr. Pendleton says: action in turning me out was clearly un- constitutional. A member is unseated the House and the quorum consists of 160 members, not 163. There are two ways and two places in which the question of constitutionality can be brought up. Suit can either be brought in the Supreme Court or the Court of Claims. The proceedings can be quo warranto in nature, and based on a call to the Speaker to show cause why he prevents me from exercising the privi- leges of a member. A suit for salary can also be entered. In either event, the question for settlement will bo whether the Sneaker has a right to de- clare a member unseated without a quo- rum voting." The Democrats say they will not bring suit until Mr. Atkinson votes on some bill which becomes a law, and then they will make the point that it is un- constitutional. The Republican man- agers are perfectly satisfied to make a test case of the matter. They claim they could have had a quorum voting when Mr. Pendlotcu was unseated, but in or- der to decide the question definitely they allowed Mr. Atkinson to take his seat on 162 votes.
