Prosecution asks for Mitchells dismissal Washington dec. 17.�? apr dismissal of col. William Mitchell from the army was asked today by prosecution counsel in opening arguments before the general court martial trying the air officer under the 98th article of War. In asking the maximum sentence prescribed for offences triable under the article of War maj. Allen Gull on assistant trial judge advocate declared colonel Mitchell a a had been proved guilty of disorder to the prejudice of Good order and military disc Lillne and of conduct of a nature to bring discredit to the military the prosecution counsel bitterly arraigned the defendant and severely condemned Many of the witnesses who had testified in his behalf singling out among others rear Admiral William Sims retired As a particular target for barbed thrusts. Representative Frank r. Reid of Illinois chief defense counsel also came in for repeated mention in this connection. A we ask the a dismissal of the accused a major Gull on said a for the Sake of the army whose discipline he has endangered and whose fair name he had attempted to discredit we ask his dismissal for the Sake of those Young officers of the army air service whose ideals he has shadowed and whose loyalty be has corrupted. We ask Bis dismissal in the name of truth under whose Aegis he has sought Protection but whose face he does not know. Quot finally we ask in the name of the american people whose fears he Haa played upon whose hysteria he has fomented whose Confidence he has beguiled and whose Faith he has major Gull on Analysed Only the evidence which pertained to colonel Mitchells charges against the Navy department and which had been offered the court by defense witnesses. Some of these he referred to by name and types. They included Admiral Sims characterized As the a a opinionated narrow minded Hobby Riding egomaniacal a Type maj. William n. Hensley army air service a a the shifty Type a a Lieut. H. W. Sheridan air service the a half truth Type a Lieut. Orville Anderson air service the a a pseudo expert Type a capt. Robert e. Oldys air service the a a reviving memory Type a a Lieut. Col. William g. Shaufler air service Reserve a the flippant Type a a and maj. Gerald Brant general staff a a the Gay Gallant lovable of representative f. H. Laguardia socialist new York maj. Gullion said a the is beyond my Powers of description. Thank heaven he is Sui the prosecution counsel selected numerous quotations made during the trial by representative Reid in Hife role of defense attorney attributing some to a a ignorant malice and terming others a a taunts and he asserted or. Reid had made unfounded claims As to the illegality and irregularity of the investigation xxx in so extravagant a Way that it seemed As though counsel thought that the preliminaries of to lace trial were an unholy thing. Referring again to colonel Mitchell major Gullion sir d he what he called a a the Mitchell formula in this Way a first. Exaggeration National Clefense matter closely approach in Ilse Bood. A a second. Untrue and Misu my ate ments for the purpose of discrediting Rainy and my officers thus. A third. Creating distrust in minds of people As to War and Navy departments. A fourth. Egotistic self description As to experience and qualifications. Coupled up with a fifth. Protestations of absence of self interest and expressions of willingness to be and expectation of being a Martyr All leading to a a sixth. A United air service with a a seven. William Mitchell As the Only logical head of a that a a the major said a a is the formula be has followed. Every demagogue has followed a similar one protesting unselfishness and secretly seeking self aggrandizement As he appealed directly to the people Over the Heads of constituted a is this Man a Moses fitted to Lead the people out of a wilderness which is Bis own creation Only is he of the George Washington Type is counsel would have you believe is he not rather of the All too familiar demagogue Type. He is a Good flyer a fair rider a Good shot flamboyant self advertising wildly imaginative destructive never constructive except in wild non feasible schemes and never Overly careful is to the ethics of his methods. A this court has had Opportunity to study those methods not Only As revealed in his statements of september 5 to 9 but also in his for j Mer statements which his counsel j has read into the record. All of these statements made Over a per-1 Iod of years follow what we May term the Mitchell formula a stating Why he believed colonel j Mitchell should be dismissed Fromi the army major Gullion said a a there Are certain elementary principles of loyalty and Subordina-1 ton which every organization must maintain if it is a amp remain a Good concern. These elementary principles Are really Laws of organization and Are strictly observed by corporations and religious bodies. Not one of these would tolerate such conduct As the accused a. Dismissal would be his portion. How much More necessary in it for members of the army to follow those Laws of organization. Dismissal from the army for such conduct is therefore positively indicated. A a there Are certain fundamental rules of human Contact which control All co operative associations. One of the most important of those rules requires that serious charges against ones Fellows must not he made ground Lessly. By his unfounded attacks on the Honor of his associates the accused has violated that Rule and would be expelled from any such association. A a would an admonishment fit the offences of which the accused has been clearly proven guilty for making statements which his counsel read into the record statements similar but not As bad As those of september 5 and 9. The accused chief general Patrick recommended that he be admonished. Encouraged by such leniency he has now gone to the unforgivable extreme. A would a reduction in files be a suitable punishment it would hardly be punishment at All. The accused is a colonel and promotion from that Grade is not made by seniority. A a a what punishment would under the custom of our service be meted out to a Soldier with Only a sixth Grade education who had committed the offence of which the accused has been proven guilty. Confinement at hard labor most certainly. How then can this tiny Penant accused with All his advantages of education and position be left off with less than dismissal a major Gullion admitted that it was not known a just How seriously the accused a conduct has actually prejudiced discipline a and told the court it a need not be known to enable it to reach a finding. A your soldiers Are watching this Case a he said. A a fail to Dis Mhz him and you weaken the authority of every non commissioned officer in the service. Dismiss him As he de res and you strengthen the Arm of every single officer commanding a one company Post from Marfa to Siliko Ling in.

This makes the fourth station in a Chain to link the Arctic Region with civilization. Oppose firemen who try to Clear t Rees quite a fight on along Pennsylvania Avenue for Leafy branches Washington dec. 16�? apr hundreds of Starling and English sparrows and a squad of City firemen have opened a Battle for Possession of a Row of Trees along historic Pennsylvania Avenue Between 13th and 14th streets As the Birds have won the first encounter. Leaving Only a corporals guard in their accustomed roosting place to meet the firemen a attack the Birds beat a strategic Retreat to another and secret shelter. Lieutenant a. R. Moxley commanding the firemen a detail is wondering whether the feathered enemy just Plain outsmarted him or the rain preceded the battlers Zero hour prompted the Birds Retreat. Advised by department of agriculture experts that the Twilight hour was Best for the attack Moxley and his squad armed with fire Hose approached the Trees and stacked arms. Orders v Ere that the Trees must be captured because the roosting Birds had become a Public nuisance. A a the Birds have More sense than we mused Moxley when he discovered Only about fifty of them massed on the Topmost Branch of the tallest tree. Hoping that the enemy would receive reinforcements and thus provide a better target Moxley waited hut in vain and so gave the order to open fire with the Hose. The first gun was fired by a newspaper photographer with a blast of flashlight powder but it disturbed the Birds not at All. Streams of water arched skyward. The Birds watched interest edly until the first Spray reached them and then leisurely winged away away into the night. Lieutenant Moxley was left in Possession of the sector but he does t know How Many nights to will take to educate the Birds of Washington to keep out of those particular Trees.

An opening decline of 4 to 14 Points in re Sponce to relatively easy Liverpool cables carried the Market into a considerable volume of buying orders around the is.34 cent level for March contracts. This demand proved sufficient to hold the Market during the Early trading but Selling was Active for both Southern Liverpool and local account. The initial decline extended to 18.70 for March or about 16 Points net lower and prices were within 2 or 3 Points of the lowest at the end of the first half hour. Private cables said the demand in Liverpool was due to hedge Selling and liquidation by disappointed holders of contracts and also complained of a poor demand for Cotton cloths in Manchester. New Orleans Cotton new Orleans dec. 17.�? apr the Cotton Market opened easier owing to lower Liverpool cables and first trades showed losses of 14 Points. The Market eased off an additional Point or two right after the Call to 18.44 for january 18.15 for March and 17.86 for May but soon showed a slight tendency to rally on unfavourable weather in the Belt.
