ero nearest and dearest to bim. Oxygon had beon administered
(easily 1ml with little effect it) keeping l;apk (.he approach of

ess only to relapse into another. But in this period, whon his
nind was partially clear, occurred a series of events of profound-
y touching character. Down stairs, wltn strained tear.stained
aces, numbers ol the cabinet were grouped in'anxious waiting.
hey knew the end was near and that the time bad come when
he j' tnujt see him for the last time on earth. This wna 0 o'clock.

Ilchcuck and Attorney General Knox. Secretary Wilson also

Washington, D. C, Sept. 15.
Within threo hours from the time
of convening the court of inquiry
Friday it was announced that Rear
Admiral Howleon was disqualified
Irom serving as a member of tho
court and was excused from further
duty. This brought proceedings
to an abrupt termination, and caus
ed a temporary adjournment of the
court in order to permit-the navy I
deportment to designate an oiUcor
to Bucceed Admiral Howleon. No
further seesion is probable until
the early part of next week.
It bad been expected that little
ofllcial business would be accom
plished on tho nponing day, and
the prompt decision as to Admiral
Howison camo somewhat as a sur
prise. The tiret skirmish was opened
by Admiral Schley riBlng from his
seat and speaking in a strong
voice, calmly and deliberately
challenging Admiral ilowison's
eligibility as n member of the
court. Three wilnfsteH wero then
brought forward in ruppnrt of this
challenge, namely, Mr Francis S.
Frost, Mr. Win. E. Spoqn and Mr.
They gnve very positive lesli
mony as to expressions they bad
heard Admiml Howison make,
favorable to Amirs! .Sampson and
unfavorable to Admiral Schley.
Admiral Howison met tho issue
by turning to Admiral Dewey and
announcing that he would make u
writ ol rejoinder to the statements
of tho three witnesses. This re
joinder he prepared very upeedily.
While conceding the accuracy of
some points in the evidence, it
throw considerable doubt on other
points and disclaimed any recol
lection of the talks said to have
taken place on the trans-Atlantic
Tho challonge waB then submit
ted to the court, whiob, under the
circumstances, was narrowed down
to Admiral Dswoy nnd Rear Ad

that the court sustained the chal
