1899 Excerpt: ...unnecessary expense without compensating
advantage. I consider this change unnecessary for the further
reason that the several bureaus of the War Department and the Board
of Ordnance and Fortification are alike under the supervision of
the Secretary of War, and that if the change were made the Board
would have no greater power to facilitate the production of
material for test than now exists through the control of the
bureaus by the Secretary of War. Charles B. Wheeler, Captain,
Ordnance Department, United States Army. 'Col. Royal T. Frank
served as a member of the Board until Ootober 18, 1899, when he was
appointed brigadier-general, United State Army, and retired from
ictive service. Mis successor has not yet been detailed. APPENDIX
