Admiral Schley will receive his full
pay as senior rear admiral until tho
closo of the Court of Inquiry. That
is at the rate of $7,500 a year.
When Schley was placed on tho re
tired list a week ago, his salary under
the law, was reduced to o,G'J5 which
is three quarters of Hie amount given
him for active service. It was thought
at the time that one department would
officially assign him to attendance nt
the Investigation which would have
entitled him to full pay. No action
was taken for several days but the
dcpaitment then, by request, it Is said,
made the assignment, and the Ad
miral's namo was restored to Its form
er place on tho pay loll. Admirals
Benbam and Ramsey are both o tho
retired list, but receive full pay dur

Court of Inquiry.
