Washington, Sept. 27. —A copy of the
message Rear Admiral Sihley had writ
ten and directed sent to Secretary of the
Navy Long when the Spanish fleet sur
rendered off Santiago was seen by a re
porter to-day. It reads as follows:

This message was never received by
Secretary Long. Instead a message was
received from Admiral Sampson which an
nounced that the squadron under his com
mand had destroyed the Spanish fleet and
presented it to the American people as
a Fourth of July gift. The reason Ad
miral Schley's message was not sent will
probably bo brought out at the court of
According to the story current to-day,
Admiral Schley ordered his flag lieuten
int, Sears, ashore "with a message an
louncing the capture of the Spaniards.
At the cable office he was overtaken by
Lieutenant-Commander Staunton of Ad
niral Sampson's staff, who stopped Ad
miral Schley's message and substituted
the one from Admiral Sampson.
GRIND OP THE DAY
Government to Close by the End of
Washington, Sept. 27.—As usual, Ad
miral Dewey lost no time to-day in bring
ing the Schley court of Inquiry to order.
Captain Lemly and Mr. Hanna, the navy
department's representatives, had been in
the courtroom for an hour or more pre
paring the details for the day's work.
They consider the present stage of the
proceedings an important one, requiring
the ruost careful attention. Captain Lemly
estimates that he will be able to con
clude the presentation of the government's
side by the close of next week. He says
he will have about fifteen or twenty more
witnesses to introduce.
One of the most regular attendants upon
the court is William H. Stayter, the at
torney who is understood to be prepared
to represent other naval officers than Ad
miral Schley. He sits outside and does not
In any way participate in the proceedings.
He said yesterday that so long as Admiral
Sampson is kept out of the case he will
have nothing to say.
Carpenterv Ip Hlm Testimony.
To-day's session began with the recall
of Captain Wise to make verbal changes
in the official copy of his testimony. He
altered his previous statement concerning
the order of the navy department of May
20, 1898, in which he was directed to "in
form every vessel off Santiago that the
flying squadron is off Cienfuegos," saying
that he desired to correct his response
to the court's question as to why this
order was not carried out, by stating that
it had been carried out.
"The flying squadron was ordered to
proceed with all possible dispatch," he
said, and added. " I did not desire to in
form the commodore of the flying squadron
of nis own movements. The order was to
inform commanders of the movements of
the flying squadron."
The court then asked:
"Did you direct Captain Sigsfoee to give
Commodore Schley the information con
tained in the dispatch from the navy
department regarding the whereabouts of
the Spanish fleet?"
"I did not."
Declare* a Picket Boat Wai There.
Lieutenant Spencer S. Wood, who com
manded the dispatch-boat Dupont during
the Spanish war, was then called and con
tinued his testimony begun yesterday
Mr. Rayner resumed his cross-examin
ation. The witness said that while off
Cienfuegos he had been on picket duty
two miles from shore on the night of
May 22 and had been instructed to signal
the squadron with two red lights in case
Miss Stone and Her Captors
Constantinople Sept. 27.-The Rev. Mr. Haskell. a missionary at Samakov Bul
garia, has received a letter from Miss Helen H. Stone, the American missionary
who was earned off by brigands Sept. 5, in the district of Djumabala. I7T o ™ not
reveal the whereabouts of Miss Stone, but says she is in good health and haTbeen
we 1 treated by the brigands, especially in the earlier stages of the abduction Lat
terly, in consequence of the vigorous pursuit of Turkish troops, she had been sub
jected to privations. Miss Stone adds that the brigands demand a ransom of 25 000
Turkish pounds. The opinion is expressed in Constantinople that the Bulear'ia
Macedonian commission was actively concerned in the abduction
the enemies' torpedo boats came out of
.Mr. Rayner then read from the testi
mony of Captain Harber of the Texas say
ing that there had been no picket vessels
within the line of the fleet off Cienfuegoa.
The witness said that the statement was
Capt. Lemly said Captain Harber had
testified that there were no pickets "so
far as he could recall," to which Mr.
Rayner responded: "we are not impeach -
iag Captain Harber's veracity. We are
imjeaching his recollection, not his in
Harber Was Wrong:.
Mr. Rayner: "Captain Harber has
stiteJ that there were no picket boats at
CiPiifiieftos. He was wrong was he not?"
"He was," replied the witness. "As I
have seen since the <:ommander-in-chief
also reported that the Dupont was not
there. I have written the department
that I wa« there. Other people forgot
about it, too."
"You are trying now to justify Captain
Harber's want of recollection by stating
that the corumander-in-chief wrote a let-
ter that there were no picket boats
"He did not mention their presence and
I corrected it."
"Do you recollect any statement made
by the commander-in-chief when he had
a picket boat within the picket line that
he had arranged a signal from the picket
boat to the flagship?"
"He did not mention any, and I have a
letter 1 on file in the department calling at
tention to the omission in that respect."
"I call your attention to the report of
the commander-In-chief in which he
states 'the line of blocade,' etc.," was
"I wish to bring It out that the Dupont
was inside the line and that is the re
port I made to the department. I still
stand on the point that he is not bringing
out where the torpedo boat was."
"You are perfectly right about that, but
you are not asked in reference to any
criticism you may have made upon the re
port of the commander-in-chief. The
question is this: Captain Harber has
definitely stated that there was no picket
boat inside the line at Cienfugos. You say
there was and that the Dupont was one of
"I was inside the line, inside the Cas
tine," said Lieutenant Wood.
By the Court: "Could you see the
Texas from the Dupont during the night
of May 22 and May 23?"
This Disagrees With Hanna,
Mr. Hanna objected to Mr. Rayner's
methods of questioning, especially to his
characterization of Captain Harber's tes
timony as wrong when Captain Harber
had said distinctly that he only spoke from
his best recollection.
"This," hes aid, "is an indirect impeach
ment of the witness."
Mr. Rayner again insisted that he had
intended only to bring out the facts.
Mr. Hanna asked what ste:>s had been
taken while the flying squadron was off
Cienfuegos to ascertain if the Spanish
fleet was inside the harbor there.
"None that I knew of."
"Was there any effort to destroy the
shore batteries there?"
The witness replied that he knew of
none. He said, replying to a question by
Mr. Rayner, that vessels in the inside
harbor could not have been discerned
from the outside.
Lieutenant Wood was then excused and
as he was leaving the room Mr. Hanna
took occasion to say:
: "I will make an announcement :
: Tv-hlle we are waiting. There has :
; been introduced before the court :
: the question of the correctness :
'2 Or the identity of a certain 1 very :
: important dispatch sent by the :
: Harvard, May 27, from off Santi- •

: of the flying Squadron. It ap- •

: pletely; that, is to say, as fully •
: and completely as the court may j

Lieutenant John Hood, who during the
war commanded the Hawk, was the next
witness. He said that on May 23 he had
delivered dispatches from Admiral Samp

FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 27, 1901.
Dennis Sewell's Life Brilliant
With Good Deeds.
MANY OWE LIFE TO HIM
He Was Ever Watchful of the Boys
ALWAYS THOUGHTLESS OF SELF
He Would Not Listen to Remonstran
ces Agralnat Risking His
Life for Others.
A little money has been subscribed to the
Sewell fund by generous persons who
wished to show their appreciation of the
heroic act of Dennis Sewell in, losing his
life while trying to save that o£ another
in the river last Saturday. The fund is
small, but It will doubtless grow when the
true heroism of *Denny" Sewell is known.
The man who worked for $2 a day on the
boom in the Mississippi river was of the
stuff of which heroes are mede. It was no
sudden impulse that prompted him to risk
his life for -the unfortunate boy who
dragged him down to a watery grave. It
was the act of a brave man who thought
no more of pulling a youngster out of the
river than he did of eating his dinner.
For eighteen years "Denny" Sewell was
out on the logs of the river. Every sum
mer found him there, and the
boys who went in bothing knew
him as they did the landmarks
about Akeley's mill. He was al
ways at work, happy, good natured,
never bothering them with warnings. He
was more inclined to wink at the bold
spirits that ventured near him in the
water. There was someting in those
stout little hearts that jumped with his
own, and while he knew they were risk
ing their lives, there was so much per
sonal bravery, so much confidence and
courage in the man that he never chided
the boys. He liked to see them enjoy
themselves. If he pulled out by the hair
one who was sinking for the last time,
he laughed about it,- and remembered
only the glorious time the other little
fellows were having. The sad, the
wretched business of life he remembered
not at all. He was ell sunshine, happi
nesß end buoyant good nature-.
He Saved Many Liven.
Many stories are told of his life-saving
adventures on the river, and the number
of his rescues has been placed at from
an even dozen to fifteen. But the dead
man's intimate friends declare that the j
half has not been told concerning his acts
of heroism. Every summer he saved sev
eral boys from drowning. They were
mostly poor boys, little "kids" who had j
ventured out beyond their depth, and
Dennis Sewell had no interest in taking
down their names, or ascertaining their
place of residence. He was interested in
paying for a little home at 325 Twenty
fourth avenue N, and he had no time for
keeping records. Season after season he
watched over the boys, and every few
days would leap in just in time to save
a little fellow's life. He would laugh at
the boy, caution him, and^o on about his I
work. Thus he lived and died.
It was only last summer that Mrs.
Sewell began to think seriously of the
risks her husband was running. In try
ing to save a young man he narrowly
escaped losing his own life, and would
most certainly have drowned had it not
been for Policeman Ross. But this did
not stop him. He was just as thought
less of self as ever when he found a help
less person wtruggUng in the river. When
Mrs. Sewell remonstrated with him, he
looked at her in astonishment:
: "Why, dear girl," said he, :
t "If I was told that a good swim* :
S ruer had stood by and seen one :
1 of my little fellows drown, I'd : ,
! ehoot him." :
And how Dennis Sewell loved his own
"little fellows" only their mother knows.
A Lover of Children.
He was the life of his neighborhood,
and he loved all the neighbor children.
His house was his castle in very truth.
The "poor man's club," the saloon, had
no attractions for him. He spent his
time at home in company with his fam
ily, and was never so happy as when
planning what he was going to do for
his three boys.
"My husband," said Mrs. Sewell this
morning, "cared only for us. The people
who have so kindly helped us have not
contributed to the family of an ordinary
man. He was a model husband and father.
His unselfishness was wonderful. He
brought his wages home always and saved
out only a few cents for himself. The rest
was all for 1 the home. And it is a great
comfort to know that in doing this he
found his greatest happiness."
He Lived for Others.
Mrs. Sewell lives with five young
children at 325 Twenty-fourth avenue N.
Two of the children were left by a sister
who died a few years ago, during the dark
years when "Denny" Sewell had all he
could do to make the payments on his lit
tle home. But he would not hear 1 of a sug
gestion that his sister-in-law's children
should be sent to an orphan asylum. "Not
as long as I can earn bread for them,"
was the comfort he gave the dying- mother
Pick Out the Man Who Was Licked.
whose heart was broken at the thought of
leaving two helpless children. "I'll bring
them up. Everything will be all right.
Trust me, sister." These were the words
Dennis Sewell addressed to the woman who
blessed him with her last breath.
[ It is small wonder that the widow of
such a man faces the stern realities of
life with broken spirit. Her 1 children are
all small. Eddie is five years old, Willie,
"the image of his father," according to
all who know him, is but four, while Lea
lie, the baby, is only eight months old.
Mrs. Sewell worked for eleven-years at
the Northwestern Knitting Works, before
her marriage, but she is powerless to take
up her old employment now because of the
children. She is actuated by but one
[ thought, to bring up her boys as their
I father had planned, and to make them
j worthy to bear his name.
THE SEWELL FIND
The Movement Seems to Appeal to
All < Ihsncs.
The fund for the relief of the Sewell
family received substantial additions to
day. This morning James Marshall cir
culated, a petition on the Chamber of
Commerce floor, and within a short time
had raised almost ?200. This money will
be reported in detail later. A subscrip
tion was also taken up in the city hall,
one of the young ladies employed there
having interested herself in the matter.
This will net about $50.

DEMOCRATIC PAPER'S VERSION
It Runs That Hauiiu Will Surrender
to Roosevelt His Grip on
Special to The Journal.
Chicago, Sept. 27.—The Chronicle (dem
ocratic) publishes the following from its
I will support President McKinley's politic*
policy so far as it relates to the south, tooth
and nail. On this I have made up my mind
absolutely and unequivocally. The late pres
ident's course regarding the south had my
hearty co-operation and approbation, and you
can say to your friends who are interested in
developing and carrying out that policy that
I will stand by them.
These are President Roosevelt's words
to Senator Pritchard of North Carolina
during a conferer^e regarding the presi
dent's policy toward the south. Senator
Pritchard, like Senator McLaurin of South
Carolina, was very anxious to know If
President Roosevelt proposed to depart
from the work of his predecessor, and if
so, what lines he might traverse.
President Roosevelt went into the mat
ter more fully than is stated in the fore
going and indicated that,, like President
McKinley, he is opposed to existing and
contemplated plans for the reduction of
southern representation in congress on
account of the exclusion of the negro
: The president assured the :
: North Carolina senator that he :
: will not be a party to any t
t scheme to curtail political rights t
: and privileges that the south :
: now enjoys. In other words, the i
: president will do as the late i
t President McKinley did —use his :
; Influence to check any efforts j
: that may be made by congress' :
: to cut down southern represen- :
: tation. j
President Roosevelt wants to secure the
friendship of southern republicans. He
wants to be in a position to control on
his own account, the delegates of the
southern states ( to the next national con
vention, and there is no reason to doubt
that he will take measures to distribute
the patronage in such a manner as to de
prive Santor Hanna of all power and in
fluence south of Mason and Dixon's line.
Under President McKinley, Hanna was
the sole distributor of southern patron
age, and he made use of this distinction
to hold the republican organizations of
the south where he could make use of
them at his pleasure. It is conceded that
the Ohio senator will make no attempt to
retain his hold on the southern delegates,
but will surrender unconditionally to the

Repents His Crime, Sympathizes With

Auburn, Sept. 27. —Czolgosz, President
McKinley's murderer, in the custody of
Sheriff Caldwell of Erie county and twen
ty-one deputies, arrived in Auburn at 3:15
c. m. The prison is only about fifty yards
from the depot. Awaiting the arrival of
the train there was a crowd of about 200
people. Either for fear of the crowd,
which was not demonstrative, or from
sight of the prison, Czolgosz's legs gave
out and two deputy sheriffs were com
pelled practically to carry the man into
Inside the gates his condition became
worse and he was dragged up ", the stairs
and into the main hall. He was placed
in a sitting posture on the : bench* while
the handcuffs were being removed, but he
fell over and moaned and groaned, evinc
ing the most abject terror. As soon as
the handcuffs were unlocked the man .'was
dragged into the principal keeper's office.
As in the case of all ' prisoners, the of
ficers immediately proceeded to strip him
and put on a new suit of clothes. During
this operation Czolgoez cried and yelled,
making the prison corridors echo with
evidence of his terror.
In the Condemned Row,
The prison (physician. Dr. John Germ,
examined the . man end ordered his re
moval to the cell in | the condemned row,
which he will occupy until he is taken to
the electric chair. The doctor declared
that the man was suffering from fright
and terror, but said that he was sham
ming to some* extent.!'; - , ; \
The collapse of the murderer was a sur
prise to everyone. En route from Buf
falo he showed no indication of breaking
down. He ate heartily of sandwiches
and smoked cigars when not eating. He
talked some and expressed regret for his
crime. He said: "I am especially sorry
for Mrs. McKinley." He reiterated his
former statement that he had had no ac
complices end declared that he had never
heard of the man under arrest in St.
Louis who claimed to have tied the hand
kerchief over his hand, concealing the
pistol with which the president was shot.
He says the handkerchief was not tied.
He went behind the Temple of Music, ar
ranged the handkerchief so aa to hide the
weapon and then took his place in the
crowd. To Jailer Mitchell he sent this
message to his father:
"Tell him I'm sorry I left such a bad
name for him."

Canton, Ohio, Sept. 27.—Secretary to tha
President Cortelyou reached here this morn
ing and went directly to the McKinley houwt.
While there has been no material change in
Mrs. McKinley's condition since the secretary
was last here she at least holds her own and
shows more Interest in her personal affairs.
Her condition is such that Mr. Cortelyou
can, with her, go over the matters whioh
brought him here. In fact, it is thought the
conference with the secretary will act as a
sort of a diversion end really be beneficial.
Disgraced the Flair They Served.
Marion, Ind., Sept. 27.—Jerry Kuder, Peter
Locke and James Spears, three veterans of
the Soldiers' Home here, who have been in
the guardhouse of that institution since the

would die, have been sentenced by the board
of managers of the home to be publicly de
graded and dishonorably discharged from
that Institution to-morrow.
