Farmer Get* Verdict for Damages
Caused by Overflow.
LA CROSSE, Wis.. Sept. 27.—(Special.)—
The jury in the damage suit of F.
Schmekpepher vs. The North-Western
Railway today returned a verdict of
51.167.85 for the plaintiff, after twenty
four hours' deliberation. Schmekpepher
sued the railway on the claim thta his
land sustained $2,500 damages as the re
sult of floods and overflows caused by
the defective construction of the North-
Western tracks. The case is very impor
tant in that several other farmers
whose lands were flooded in the same
manner will now probably start actions
to recover damages. The case will prob
ably be appealed.

SIOUX FALLS, Sept. 27.— (Special)— Last
night marked an epoch in the history of
the Elk lodge of this city, the occasion
being the laying of the corner stone of

Love Conquered Obstacles.
Walter King Heffelfinger, the seven
teen-year-old grandson of Col. William S.
King, and Alice Giles, two years his
senior,, have been missing from their re
spective homes on Nicollet is.and since
Wednesday morning, and there appears
to be no doubt that they have eloped.
Tuesday Heffelfinger procured a marriage
license and would have married the girl
, the same day but for the Interposition
of his grandmother, with whom he lives.
The young people apparently yielded to
; the inevitable and retired as usual at
I night. The next morning both had dis
! appeared. It had been known to many
I of the younger people of the neighbor
; hood that Heffelfinger and Miss Giles
j were attached to each other, and it was
i expected by them that the marriage had
! been performed on schedule time. Tues
-1 day evening about a hundred of them
1 arranged a charivari, and it was not for
1 some time that they found out that the
I nuptials had been indefinitely postponed.
The following morning saw both the in
terested parties missing, and it is now
believed that they have been married.
Cut Slay Be Small.
It is possible Minnesota loggers will
curtail the log cut this winter.
Owing to the high prices of provisions
and the scarcity of labor loggers figure
1 that their business will be a risky prop-

j they are exercising* great care when
! taking contracts. yy:~. -,-;■
Very few of the operators are willing
to make contracts for a large amount of
work at the present time, as the outlook
is too uncertain.
Lumbermen are anxious that the cut
shall be a large one, for they feel that
the market wijl be more favorable than
ever, but the chances are that the win
ter's output will be comparatively light.

PLEA FROM BOERS
WAXT THE COURT OF ARBITRA

END OF WAR NOT IN SIGHT
British Are Accused of Coudnetins
Operations in South Africa
Agrainst Rules of Civil
NEW YORK, Sept. 27.—Charles D. Hier
cet,. representative in the' United States
of the Orange Free State, has received
a copy of the appeal made by the Boers
to the administrative council of the per
manent court of arbitration at The
Hague. The appeal, which is dated The
Hague Sept. 10, begins by reciting the
fact that the conference of July, 1-99,
had provided a way for the peaceful set
tlement of international differences,
whereby the jurisdiction of the permanent
court could be extended to differences be
tween powers which had not become
signatories as also between powers which
had become and those which had not be
come signatories. The appeal continues
THE BOERS' APPEAL.
"immediately upon the receipt of the
communication notification was made in
behalf of the governments of both the
states represented by the undersigned to"
his excellency, the then president of your
council, that these governments would be
pleased if the war being waged in South
Africa could be' terminated by the arbi
tration of this court.
"Now that this war has gone on for
nearly two years without any prospect
of an end thereto, except in the way only ;
recently acknowledegd of being the most
efficacious and most equitable means of
determining international differences, to
wit: Submission to arbitration, the de
sirability mutually for such a peaceful
termination cannot" but become more
"The states represented by the under
signed, therefore, consider they should
repeat the proposal already made by
mem before the war, but rejected by
England, to submit to arbitration the set
tlement of the differences which gave rise
to the war. In this they have in view the
question whether England is right in al
leging that any action was taken by the
republics which had for its object the
suppression of the English element in or
its expulsion from South Africa, and
generally whether the republics have
made themselves guilty of any act, which
according to international law or recog
nized principles, would give England the
right to deprive them of their independ
"The undersigned, moreover, allege that
England at the outbreak of the
war commenced, and has ever since con
tinued to act in contravention of the
rules of war between civilized powers as
generally and also by England herself
acknowledged and as solemnly confirmed

usages of war by land, whilst England
has, moreover, quite recently, by proc
&£.° lsSUi d by Field Marshal Lord
Kitchener at Pretoria, and dated the 7th
ttlt ,L AU? US,' y?l' virtually notified
that she intends shortly to take action
in contravention of article 20, also
"The government's of the states "repre
sented by the undersigned are fuli v pre
p^ rd ' t .as soon as an apportunity thereto
snail be afforded them to substantiate
the allegations herein made by setting
forth and proving the particular facts to
which they refer.
"Since England sees fit to deny this
continual violation by her of the laws
of warfare the states represented by the
undersigned consider they may, in con
sideration of this difference, seek the
jurisdiction of the permanent court of
arbitration. The undersigned and their
governments are aware that in order to
obtain such decision the consent of Eng
land is required. They, therefore, take
the liberty of soliciting your council to
apply for such consent or to endeavor to
obtain the sam s by your mediation or
of the governments represented by you.
Should the English government give an
unfavorable reply.it will thereby be mani
fest that they dare not submit them
selves to the judgment of the conscien
tious, learned and impartial tribunal.
'.'They will then, moreover, continue
to bear the responsibility f__* the pro
longation of a war as terrible as" it is
unnecessary, and they will tacitly have
acknowledged that the manner in"which
they have carried on the war is in con
flict with the demands of humanity and
civilization as confirmed by themselves."

Hands Are Tied by the War Office
LONDON, Sept. 27.—The Pall Mall Ga
zette this afternoon confirms the rumor
published by the Daily News today ot
differences between Lord Kitchener and
the war secretary, Mr. Broderick, and
adds, that, as a result, Mr. Brodrick has
had a long interview with the king. The
Pall Mall Gazette declares it is in a po
sition to say that Lord Kitchener is dis
satisfied with the partial enforcement of
martial law in South Africa, wanting it
proclaimed at Cape Town and elsewhere.
He also desires more serious penalties
for rebellion and better reinforcements.
Lord Kitchener took over the command
i with the explicit understanding that his
hands were not to be tied, but as this
condition was not carried out, "he is
seriously reconsidering his position."
BODY CAST UP BY WAVES.
Chicago Police Are Up Against a
CHICAGO, Sept. 27.-In casting up the
body of an unknown woman at the foot
of Greenland avenue, the waves of Lake
Michigan have thrown a mystery into
the hands of the police. Aside from the
battered skull, a severed left ear and a
severe gash below it, a small hole in the
left temple of the woman's head may
lead to the discovery of a brutal mur
der. The hole in the temple has every
apperance of a contusion made by a bul
let in entering the skull.
As to the identity of the woman, who
is apparently about thirty years of age,
the police have been unable as yet to se
cure the slightest clew.
The description of the woman tallies
partly with that of Miss Florence Ely,
the missing Evanston woman, who has
baffled the police of the country for the
past ten weeks. The hair, complexion
and height, tally exactly, but the dead
woman was considerably heavier than
Miss Ely. A brother of Mr. Rogers
brother-in-law of Miss Ely, visited the
undertaking rooms, last night, but was
confident that the body was not that of
Miss Ely. ..yyy-~y

had no doubt but that the Spanish'fleet
was at Santiago. Commodore Schley
then said to me: 'Capt. Sampson does
not -understand. He is not on the spot
and cannot judge.' I also informed
Schley that they certainly expected the
squadron to leave immediately and that
I had had verbal orders from the com
mander-in-chief which did not appear in
my written orders to remain with the
Hawk alone at Cienfuegos after the
squadron had left, and conduct a block
ade for a day or two or as long as my
coal supply lasted." 77 7
"Describe the commodore's manner
upon this occasion," said Capt. Lemly.
"The commodore was sitting in his
chair all the time I was talking to him,
very . quietly. He seemed to be very
much perplexed as to what to do." -
NO ATTEMPT TO COMMUNICATE.
"Do. you remember whether there was
anything said about communication with
the insurgents?" 77-'
"There was something said by me." .
"In the commodore's presence?"
"No, by the chief of staff on deck. The
commodore was in the cabin."
"Can you state whether or not during,
the time you were at Cienfuegos with
the Hawk any effort was made to com
municate with the insurgent Cubans?"
"There was not."
The witness then * testified that the
steamer Adula, in passing, had reported
to the Brooklyn that a cable report had
been received at Kingston on May 19
saying that the Spanish-fleet was in the
harbor at Santiago. Admiral Schley's
report of this occurrence was also read
as was his statement discrediting the in
formation, because he then believed the
squadron to be in Cienfuegos harbor. All
these reports have heretofore been pub
Mr. Rayner began his cross-examina
tion a few minutes before 1 oclock, and
had not proceeded far when the court
took a recess for luncheon.
When the court began its afternoon
session, Mr. Rayner continued his cross
examination of Lieut. Hood. The lat
ter said his recollection was that he had
delivered his dispatches to Commodore
Schley is his (Schley's) cabin, but it
-might be that he had handed them to
Lieut. Wells and had walked down to
the cabin with him. He thought there
»was no one in —c cabin when the con
versation between himself and the com
modore had taken place.
Mr. Rayner was proceeding to ques
tion the witness concerning his conversa
tion with Admiral Sampson when Ad
miral Schley leaned over and warned him
that this conversation had been ruled
Mr. Rayner then changed his line of
questioning. He said: "I want to ask
you whether in this conversation with
Commodore Schley upon this occasion he
did not tell you that Admiral Sampson
had instructed him before he left for
Santiago to satisfy himself that the
Spanish fleet was not at Cienfuegos?"
. The reply, was: "I gathered from his
conversation that he had that informa
tion in some of the dispai__.es which
were written previously to the dispatch
1 carried him, which was of considerably
later date and therefore, of coures, an
nulled all the other."
"But this dispatch you carried gave
him that discretion?"
"That was not the .'latest dispatch
whose contents I knew.",
Mr. Rayner questioned the witness
concerning the report of the presence of
the Spanish fleet at Santiago and at
tempted to read a quotation from a mag
azine article, alleged to have been writ
ten _by Admiral Sampson to sustain his
point that the Adula had reported that
the fleet remained at Santiago only one
MAGAZINE TALES UNRELIABLE.
Mr. Hanna objected to the introduc
tion of the article as testimony. He
, said among other things: "I have writ
ten magazine articles myself for promi
nent gentlemen whose names were sign
ed to them." He said, however, that he
did not doubt that the article was Ad
miral Sampson's. The question was
'ultimately withdrawn for the time be
ing. Capt. Lemly then asked:
"Wasn't your understanding that the
Adula in . the communication with the
Brooklyn officers led to the understand
ing that the Spanish fleet had come to
Santiago one day and left the next day?
Wasn't that the impression left on your
"The impression made on my mind was
no Impression whatever. It is my recol
lection that at that date I knew the fleet
was in Santiago."
Capt. Lemly questioned Mr. Hood con
cerning the dispatches delivered by him
to Admiral Schley, eleclting from him
the statement that while he carried two
dispatches to the admiral from the com
mander-in-chief he -knew that the in
formation contained in one of them was
later than that in the other because the
one was dated Havana and the other
at Key West. The Havana dispatch had
contained more . positive instructions
about proceeding to Santiago.
CAPT. M'CALLA CALLED.
Lieut. Hood then was excused and
Capt. Bowman H. MeCalla, who com
manded the Marblehead during the Span
ish war, was called. Witness had first
come into contact with the flying squad
ron on May 19, 1898. When he was pro
ceeding from the south coast of Cuba
to Key West he met the squadron on its
way to Cuba. Witness said he had not
been asked to come aboard the Brooklyn
for the purpose of making a report on
conditions in Cuba, but had made a full
report to Capt. Chadwlck, Admiral
Sampson's chief of staff, When he ar
rived at Key West.
On this point, he said: "In addition to
written reports or dispatches which I
carried, I explained to the chief of staff,
the secret code which I had established
with the Cubans near Cienfuegos. That
was not done until I heard that Commo
dore Schley was proceeding to Cienfue
"What was the secret code, briefly?"
' un the lath and 16th of May, 1898. I
had been in communication with three
Cuban officers and two privates on the
Marblehead, and I had arranged with
Lieut. Davarez, who spoke English very
well, a system of signals in case they
wished to communicate with the Marble
head or my force. There were to be
three horizontal lights at night and three
horses in line on the beach by day."
Q. "To whom, according to the best
of your recollection, did you , communi
cate that secret code of signals?"
A. "Only to Capt. Chadwick, chief of
Q. "Did you make any written report
respecting those signals?"
A. "Never. It was- a secret code ar
ranged by myself and I did not wish
any publicity to be given this cqde, be
cause the Cubans might be betrayed by
any publicity which would reach the
Spanish government in Havana." ' *'
Q. "Did you have any fear of be

Capt/ MeCalla next told *of his return
to Cienfuegos on the 24th of May with
dispatches for Admiral Schley. He said:

formation to Commodore Schley verbal
A. "Commodore Schley told me he
thought the Spanish' squadron was in
Cienfuegos; that he had received news
papers from the steamer Adula, some
days previous; that one of the-news
papers contained a cable dispatch from
Santiago and from that he gathered that
the Spanish force under Admiral Cer
vera might have sailed from Santiago in
time to reach Cienfuegos just before the
arrival of the force under his command.
I said that I had brought arms, ammu
nition and dynamite for the Cuban camp
to the westward and that if he would let
me go I would find out at once whether
they were in Cienfuegos. He immediately
assented. I asked him if he had seen
any lights on the beach. He said he had.
I asked if he saw three. He said he had.
I then said the lights were from Cubans
trying to communicate. I may have
asked him if he saw three horses in line
on the beach by day."
Capt. McCaila then related how he had
gone ashore near Cienfuegos, and founo.
the Cubans drawn up in line. He gave
them food and ammunition.
"We found," he added, "that Cervera
was not inside the harbor and that in
fact the situation In Cienfuegos was ex
actly as it was when I left It on the Kith
of the same month."
-7 NOTIFIED SCHLEY.
Capt. McCaila- said he sent the intorma.
tion obtained to Admiral Schley by the
Eagle, signaling that vessel to proceed
at full speed and report to the Brooklyn
that Cervera was not in Cienfuegos. At
that.time witness was steaming with two
boilers and the Eagle could steam faster
than the Marblehead.
Q. "Did you consider that information
as of urgent importance then?''
A. "i considered it of great im
Q. "Then what did you do?"
A. "We followed with the Marblehead,
reaching the Brooklyn between "5 and 4
o'clock, somewhat behind the Eagle."
Q. "Did you go on board the Brook
A. "I steamed under the quarter of
the Brooklyn, and after some conversa
tion with Com odore Schley I asked it
he would like me to go on board. He
said that he would. I went on board and
of course confirmed the fact that Ad
miral Cervera's fleet was not in Cien
fuegos. I saw then for the first time
the set of instructions for Commodore
Schley. During the conversation the
commodore asked me to read the in
structions, and after I had read them,
he asked me what I thought he had bet
ter do. Previous to this he had said that
he could not coal off Santiago; that the
English had demonstrated that ships
could not coal at sea. He also said that
if he returned to Key West he
WOULD BE COURT-MARTIALED.
It was after this he handed 'me the
orders, which I read. After reading them
I said: 'Commodore, I think you must
return to Santiago even if you do not
stay there.' "
Q. "Where were you when Commodore
Schley said that if he returned to Key
West he would be court-martialed?"
A. "I was in the cabin of the Brook
lyn. The interview lasted . perhaps half
an hour. Capt. Cook either came in fre
quently or remained the whole time.
Lieut. Sears came in once."■_
Q. "1 assume you do not recollect
whether any of those gentlemen were
present when that remark was made?"
A. "That I cannot say."
Q. "Did you hear any reports or re
marks, conversational or otherwise?"
A. "While I was there the flag lieuten
ant, I think, came in twice to report sig
nals. One was regarding coal on each of
the ships. ' The other was a report to
the effect that the Merrimac had 3,900
tons of coal."
Q. "Was anything further said on the
subject of going to Santiago?"
A. "I do not remember that anything
was said then in reply to my -suggestion.
Shortly afterwards the admiral said:
'This is a matter I shall have to decide
myself, and you may return to your,
shir).' " j
Q. "Did the commodore say anything
to you at that time to indicate whether
it was his intention to go on that even
ing or on the next day?"
In reply to further questions. Capt.
McCaila said that no effort had been
made while he was with the flying squad
ron off Cienfuegos to prevent the Span
iards from continuing the construction of
earthworks, which he had been ordered
to do. He said the Marblehead could
have gone within range of their worKs,
and that he had been told by a Cuban
pilot that the water was deep under the
bluffs. Capt. McCaila said that the
squadron had not proceeded with "all dis
patch to Santiago."
After telling of the cruise from Cien
fuegos to Santiago, of the arrival off that
city and of the retrograde movement
toward Key West, the witness was asked i
if the Marblehead could have coaled on
the afternoon and evening of May 26,
when the flying squadron arrived off I
COULD HAVE COALED MAY 26.
He replied in the affirmative, but said
that he had not considered the vessel in!
need of coal. He also said in reply to
questions, that he had not been at any'
time anxious or apprehensive concerning
the coal supply of the Marblehead. He,
had, he said, coaled on the nlghj'of the;
27th, at first by" boats with bags, but af
ter daylight on the 28th his vessel had i
gone alongside the collier. The reason |
why this had not been done in the be
ginning, he said, was that he had been
apprehensive of Injuring the guns of the
Marblehead in the dark, the weather con
ditions having qothing to do with the pre
caution. Capt. McCaila said he had told
Admiral Schley he could coal without diffi
culty at Cape Haitlen. In reply to An
explicit question, the witness .said that
with a collier present he could have not
have anticipated any difficulty In remain
ing off Santiago for a considerable time.
In response to questions, he next relat
ed briefly the bombardment of the
Christobal Colon on May 31. When ask
ed what had been left undone to accom
plish the destruction of that vessel, he
replied that Admiral Schley had failed
to use his entire force in making the at

further remarks, whereupon Admiral
Dewey asked him to desist, saying- "We

SAMPSON WOULD BREAK IN.
During the afternoon session of the
court, while Admiral Sampson's relation
to the campaign was indirectly under dis
cussion in connection with a magazine

sent to the court a note from Admiral
Sampson, requesting that counsel be al

Lieut. Hood was at. that time on the
stand, and no immediate reply was made
to the request. Mr. Stayton, who was
present in the room, then approached Ad

quest. The admiral told him that a reply
would be made to his letter, and asked
him to remain outside the railing enclos
