              DISMISSAL OF THREE COMPANIES OF
                   TWENTY-FIFTH INFANTRY.




                     DECEMBER 14, 1908.



  Mr. FORAKER.  Mr. President, I present an amendment to
the bill (S. 5729) to correct the records and authorize the re-
enlistment of certain noncommissioned officers and enlisted men
belonging to Companies B, C, and D, of the Twenty-fifth U. S.
Infantry, who were discharged without honor under Special
Orders, No. 266, War Department, November 9, 1906, and the
restoration to them of all rights of which they have been de-
prived on account thereof.
  I ask that the amendment I have just offered may be printed
in the RECORD, and that it may be also printed and lie on the
table; and in order that the bill, as it is so proposed to amend it,
may be before the Senate, I ask that the bill as it will read
when so amended, if this amendment should be adopted, may
also be printed in the RECORD, and be printed, and lie on the
table.
  The VICE-PRESIDENT.    Without objection, it is so ordered.
  The amendment and the bill as proposed to be amended are
