AltAi KEFOItM. Secretary Proctor to Keep a Record of Each Officer's Attainments. Washington, April B.— Secretary Proctor has takeu a novel step in the way of aimy reform that will probably cause a great deal of comment among officers and no little criticism and grumbling.

NOT GUILTY. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 9 April 1890
NOT GUILTY. Th* Findings in the Case of Commander Coghlan Approved. Washington, April B.— The Secretary of the Navy has approved the findings of not guilty in the case of Commander Jcseph B. Coghlan, recently tried by a martial at Sau Francisco on charges of conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman, and of conduct such as to prejudice good order and discipline. The charge was that he wrote an article for the Vallejo Chronicle, which criticized the action of his superior officer. This in the naval regulations constitutes a breach of discipline, and for this he was tried, but the editor of the paper, the only person by whom the charge could be proven, refused to appear before the court. As there is no law to compel the attendance of witnesses before a naval court-martial, and as Commander Coghlan entered a plea of not guilty to the charge, the court entered a verdict in accordance with the evidence brought before it, and found a verdict of not guilty.
