FORT GRANT “EXILE” IS TO BE RETIRED COL. 8TEWART’S OBJECTION TO LEAVING THE ARMY OVER RULED BY THE DOCTOR8. WASHINGTON. Oct. 9.—The army retiring board which has been Investi gating the condition of tho health of Col. Wm. F. Stewart, tho so-called Fort Grant "exile," concluded its work today and while the result whh not officially mude public. It Is quite well understood thut the Jionrd found Col. Stewart to he seriously afflicted with valvular disease of tho heart os to in capacitate him for active nervier In the army. The finding which has been agreed upon will be reported to th« secretary of war tomorrow and It Is considered probable that Col. Stew art's retirement by tha president will follow, if not retired Col. . Stewart would still have more than four years of active service, and as he Is ono of the oldest officers of the artillery corps tils friends contend that lie would stand s good chance of reaching, tha grade of brigadier general. If retired he will receive three-fourth* of his regular pay, or about $400 per month. Before the hoard took tho subject up In executive session today It heard a somewhat detailed statement by Col! Htrpvart relative to his record In tho army and also listened to brief argu ments by Col. Btewart’s counsel nnd Recorder Howland, who spoke for tho service. Col. Htewart was not per mitted to go outsldo his medical rec ord and when his attorney made an effort to ollelt from him the circum stances under which he hod heon trans ferred from Fort iBaraneas, Fla., to Fort Grant, Arizona, Csptnln Howland Interposed positive objection, in which he was sustained. His Record. Col. Stewart said tlmt ho had been In the habit of taking horse-back rides of from twenty to thirty-five miles a day Tor many years past until his re moval to Fort Grant a year ago. He found at Fort Grant only one horse and ns that animal was a crlppla he was deprived of this opportunity for exercise. While at Fort Grant, how ever. he had substituted walking for riding and had generally thus covered from eight, to fourteen miles a day. Ho had never felt any 111 effect* from either walking or riding and up to a month ago hn had received no warn ing from any physician against these forms of exorcise, notwithstanding he had for many years been under the observation of iirmy surgeons. Ho ssld that he hnd known ever since 1874 Hint his henrt was affected, but that ho had paid no attention to the fact. (7,1. Htewart stated that he had been In the service for almost forty years and ho added that there were only four officers having a longer record. "Do you wish to bo retired?’ asked Mr. Latimer. "No." responded Col. Btewart with •rnphssle- "Why do you wish to continue In the service?" asked the lawyer. "Because 1 have spent my life In the army and I am fond of the service.” replied Col. Stewsrt. “I was bom at a military post, grew up on the fron tier and when I became a man I en tered the army. I see no reason why I rhould not be permitted to remain an officer until the arrival of tho tlmo for mv retirement as prescribed by law. Mr. Latimer, for Col. Htewart, en tered Into a general retrospect of his client’s service which he said had been the subject of much favorable com ment, the only criticism being by Gen eral Grant who said that Col.

GALESBURG, HI.. Oct. 9—Standing on tho Maine platform front which Mr. Taft, hts frepubllcan opponent only a few dny* ago delivered an addreai, W. J. 'Bryan today denounced Presi dent Roosevelt once again for par*Id- paring In the campaign In favor of When the special train bearing ths presidential runfiblate arrived a great crowd cheered him vociferously and at Knox College where the platform was erected, ho faced one of the largest audiences that ever assembled here. Ho took for Ills theme "Justice," nnd hinged Ills preliminary remarks on a quotation from Plutarch that "men en tertain three sentiments concerning the gods; they four them for their power, adfiilre them for their wisdom and lovu thorn for their Justice." Refers to Taft's Visit Referring to Mr. Taft’s visit Mr. Bryan said: "It Is no new thing for you to see tho next president, for having seen mv opponent. Mr. Taft and now see ing me you are certain that you have soon the next president, although neither of us Is a* certain as we would like to ho Which one It I*. And here too you saw. those qf you who lived «t that time, two men who were pitted against each other In one of the most bitter contests that has been known In the history of the world for I think I mn safe in saying the records of time give no parallel to the great eerie* of debates between Lincoln and Douglag. Justice Hla Them* for Yeare. Mr. Bryan said that Justice had beAn his theme eight years ago and nattoa wns his theme today. He said ho was trying to show how on several differ ent questions the democratic party was appealing for Justice. He then spoke concerning publicity «f cam paign contributions before election nnd ridiculed Mr. Taft for expressing the “porsonal Inclination" toward that proposition and not coming out square ly for It. Tho crowd was moved to cheers when he dealsred that tt>e dem ocratic party Insisted upon Justice to those who toll. Man, Then the Dollar. "The Republican party," he said, "has allowed the lobbyists of grew corporate Interests to stifle labor leg islation." and he Informed his hearers that "tho Democratic party's remedy was to hnndlo the laboring man as a human being and not as a mere piece of merchandise." "Wo nro not willing," he said, "that a man made In tho imago of his Crea tor, with henrt and brain and soul shall ho degraded to tho level if dol lars nnd cents. That groat statesman, who wnH engaged In debate hi this place In 1858. Abraham Lincoln, a year after ho spoke here wrote a letter to some people In Boston and In that let- tor ho said that the Republican pacty believed In tho man and the dollar, but that In case of conflict It believ ed In the man before the dollar." Mr. Brynn said that ths Democrat* be- Moved that that was the proper rela tion between money and men. Funny Things He Find*. He then dwelt at some length In *up* port of the proposition to grant trial* by Jury In rases of direct contempt. Mr. Bryan made fun of the republican platform, basing his remarks princi pally on the recent editorial in the Omaha Bee, which criticised a part of the republican tnrlff Jlnnk under tho supposition that It wns in extract from some speech of his. "Why, my friends," he said, “I used to buy b'*oka on humor whenever I wanted to road something funny, but now I read re publican platform* and save money. Tho funniest platform I ever read was that adopted nt Chicago, and the fun niest plank In It la th# tariff plank." As he had don* several times before today. Mr. Bryan announced nlmeplf aa "tho advance of prosperity," alii bitterly assailed the pres!d-nt and Mr. Taft aa a member of his cabinet for the panic of 1101. He declared that there never was a better time than now for the republicans to predict a panic nhould ho bo elected. They could scare the people In 189$, he said, but not now.
