When Senator Watson, of Georgia, announced in the sen-

cuted without trial, some of them hanged, other:- shot. and
that many more executions had taken pla:e than had beer.
officially reported, the nation gapped with horror and the pub-
lic pre** denounced the senator in the severest manner.
The senator's friends believed, as he charged, that an
effort was made to smother the fact- 'n a committee room,
and army officers from many parts of the eouritr;. were quick
to denounce hi* charge)- as baseless ;o:d a? ar-.-.-jiting to a
vile slander directed toward the honor of the army. The
fearlessness of Senator Watson in the face of such a tirade
of calumny was truly commendable.
The dispatches yesterday prove that there was more
truth in Senator Watson's charges than he knew. Evidence
submitted discloses most appalling facts. One witness, Rob-
ert A. Harrison, stated that he had seen a man hanged to a
tree in a ravine by officers of the Sixteenth infantry; that
Hardboiled Smith, of whom we have heard before, hanged a
man back of a stockade without any form of trial; that he
had seen men handcuffed and taken to the front without gas
masks. "It was just like taking a rabbit out for a bunch of
hunters to shoot at," he said. Another witness, Henry L.
Scott, saw a major shoot and kill a sergeant during a battle;
he also saw this major shoot and kill a private a few days
later and on another occasion killed a messenger because he
would not show him a message which was directed to another
And this is just the beginning of the investigation. What
other and further gruesome and frightful facts will be elicited
no one can conjecture.
Can it be possible that the officers of the army had these
shameful crimes in mind when at the embarkation towns they
