The accused was a witness before the
jury, and was at once taken into cus

The testimony tended to show that New?
man had been murdered, tied to his bed
and the house set on fire. His arms
and legs were burned off, and an exam-.

LARGER SHIPS MOVE.
The Brooklyn and tho Olympia moved
out together, with tho Alabama astern
of the latter and the Massachusetts at
the. end of the line. These ships seemed
to make directly east. Just before noon
a torpedo boat came ln from the south,
and after jcining another vessel of the
same class, both steamed out together,
aoeompanicd by the Scorpion.
The Thornton and Gloucester went out
beyond tho southern passage just before
2 o'clock. At about the same moment
(he Mc-ntgomery, accompanied by the
I.eyden, moved out to the southwest. This
left the Kearsarge and one torpedo boat
inside the breakwater.
All the ships. after going two miles off
shore. dropped their speed and lay to, ap
peiently waiting for the Kearsarge to
joh' them. The big vessels of the squad?
ron. when the morning sun broke upon
them to-day. were as motionless and gave
as little sign of life as the rocks on the
hearby shore. The little torpedo boats
were not far from the larger craft. As
the forenoon advanced various signs of
a prospective movement were noticed.
Signals were exchanged and small craft
were dodging about. The torpedo boats
began to throw out black smoke, and
then the larger vessels showed their fires
were being freshened. The crowd of

He May Win With White Squadron If
He Has a Heavy Fog.
(By Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, August 20.?Naval of?
ficers here generally agree that the
chances against the "White"' squadron
in the game which ls on are very great,
and that practically Its only chance of
success would lie in the existence of
a heavy fog, under cover of which Com?
mander Pillsbury might slip through the
cordon of scouts and reach an anchor
age In an undefended port. The distance
between Cape Cod, the southern extrem
Ity of the coast defended by Admiral
Higginson's fleet, and Portland, Me., is
only one hundred miles. In addition to
the torpedo craft and his lighter ships,
which he could uso as scouts and string
along between these points almost within
signal distance of each other. while the
heavier ships were held together ready
to rnove at some central point, Admiral
Higginson had stationed enslgns all
along the shore to report the enemy
the instant it is sighted. These naval
officers will be reinforoed by all marine
observers along the coast.
The "White" squadron must be in port
for six hours without being confronted
by a superior force. Within that time,
If Admiral Higginson held his heavy
ships mldway between the extremlties
to be defended, he could reach his en
emy by steaming ten or eleven knots
an hour. Cape Anne, which is just out?
side of Rockport to Cape Cod, is only
42 1-2 miles, and from Cape Anne to
Elizabeth Light, outside of Portland, is
only 5S miles.

over tho Maryland Dredging and Con
structing Company's offer to furnish the
the committee with a dredge.
The report from Petersburg to the ef
fect that the old dredge would cost about
as much to repair as lt would to get
a new one, led to a resolution. to have
the dredge brought back here.
The Petersburir Iron Works offered to
sell a dredge, the prices ranging from
SIS.OOO to $2S,000. Offers were received
from other concems at $lt>.000 and $15,000.
The committee has no money at hand
just now, but will get all information
obtainable to be presented to the Coun?
cil as the dredge as well as scows are in
great need. It was determined to con
tinue the men employed on rivei- work,
but now temporarily out of work because
of the lack of a dredge. until tne first
of tho month at any rate.
Those present were: Chairman Curtis.
Messrs. Bloombcrg. Turpin. Phillips. May
er, Crenshaw, Ellyson, Gilman, Garber,
Fergusson and Myers.
