M. Miller, who commanded the collier
Merrimac off Santla;. in Hay, lxns,
gave testimony lcfore tbe Schley court
cf inquiry yesterday calculated to
throw light ou the -onteution of Ad
miral Schley that he could not coal
his ships In those waters the week
before the sea tight. Briefly be said
he could have coaled them, but it
would not have lieen an easy task.
He especially did not like to coal bat
tleships Ix-cause of their vol! in all
weather: not ouly in a. rough t-ea. He
produced his log, which showed that
he h-id coaled ships both lefore and
ofter the tlat when Schley said It was
necessary to go to Key AY est to coal.
Boot the Opposite Sld.a Feel.
Captain Jewell, commander of the
Minenapolis, was tbe next witness. lie
f-tated that he did not give Schley In
formation as to tbe presence of the
Spanish fleet at Santiago. The counsel
cn both sides became involved in an.
other wrangle. The depnrtment holds
1hat the fact that what everybody else
knew Schley did not know is evidence
of his lack of judgment, care or some
.ether quajity: while the Schley counsel I
. declares his ignorance of these thing j
"was due to the premeditated purpose
of a u.ival clique to do him harm by
Lf-eping valuable knowledge from him.
Evan. the Star Witness.
But CaptaJu Ilobley I. Evans, who
was next called, was the star witness
of the day and this without reference
to who was hit by his testimony; it
was the straight, sharp "way he gave
It. as well as its pertineuce to the is
sues. He said be was captain of the
Iowa iu May, 1SU.H. and Joined Schley
nt Cienfuegos the E"d of that month.
'He carried sealed dispatches to Schley,
but denied all knowledge of their con
tents. "What was done by Admiral Schley's
ffying squadron to as-ertaln if the
Spanish fleet was at Santiago?" asked
"Nothing that I know of," said
Evans briskly, and went on to fay that
the shore batteries were ia range of
the Iowa's guns, but that no order was
received to open fire.
The Attack on tha Coloa. -
Evans described the attack on the
Spanish vessel Colon. He saw the
Massachusetts shells fall short, and
elevated the Iowa's guns until they
fired at a range of 11..KH) yards. One
shot fell near the stem of the Colon,
but no damage was done.
"Why did you not take the Iowa
nearer the Colon?" asked Captain Lem
ly. "Because my Instructions were to
follow! the flagship." 'answered Evans. J
w . I . .... i 1 i r .
admiral agreed with the other testi
mony given that it could have been
done off Santiago.

Wow Mima InK-
Admiral Evans told the story of the
fight at Santiago when Cervera's fleet
was knocked out, and then Kayner
took him in hand for cross-examination.
Evans said that he had left Key
West with tbe Iowa for Cienfuegos on
May 20, and that be knew before leav- t
Ing that jKrt that a secret code had'
been arranged for communicating with '
the insurgents on shore at Cienfuegos,

"II came on board the Iowa." said
the witness, "to deliver dispatches to
me before ve got under way. To my
best knowledge and belief be gave me
a written memorandum containing
the secret code, but notwithstanding
I have made diligent search among my
papers for this document I have failed
to find It." I
Kayner asked: "When were those
dispatches delivered to commander
Schley V" 1
They wtre delivered between 12:30
n'l-lmi; nnd 1 o'clock ou the after
noon of tbe SJil." I
"Hid vou read the memorandum.
about signals given jou by Captain

"Certainly I did, but not the dis
patches to Com-modore Schley." He
added In answer to questions that the
f.aid memoranda was tbe secret code. 1
and that be bad searched everywhere.
for it in vain. I
Then did you. Jnform Comma nder
Schley that this system of signals Dad
Deen arrangeu :
"I did not." It never entered my
mind that he did not know it." He
tetifled further that the question of
the commander-in-chief not hav
ing the signal code "never entered my
bead. If it had I should have paid, of
course, that the commanding officer of
a naval force would not exiect one of
bis Junior captains to give bltn Infor
mation about hi signals. It was given
to me ax a piece of information which
I thought every captain In the fleet
had. I never thought of Commodore
Schley In connection with it. If I had
supposed for a moment tb.it Commo
dore tchley did not have It I would
have given It to hiiu the first thins ou

Itayuer then asked Evans about tbe
official chart of the "Ksition of the
ships on the day of the Santiago fight.
Evans said the chart was wrong. He
taw the Brooklyn cross the bows of the
Texas alout 1X yards in front of the
latter. Then Kayner asked him if be
remembered a conversation with
Schley alout that loop, and Evans said
he did not.
"You do not recollect that Commo

that it was the Brooklyn, and not the
Texas that made the turn?"
"I never Imagined anything of tbe

conversation on that date with Com

and as he gave It there was nothing
nlout the loop: the only thiug said by
Schley about tbe battle being: "Bol

ADMIRAL CONTRADICTS UATNEB

Brooklyn on July 3, 1808. -
Kayner questioned the wltn s again
with reference to statements made in
bis (Admiral Evans') look. asking bim
whether he had ever said he felt rea
sonably sure that the Spanish fleet was
in the harbor at Santiago. The wit
ness said that he bad made that state
ment, but that it was - a conclusion
bawd on the fact that the Spaniards
were not at Cienfuegos; that they had
Tiot gone Westward, and that fronva
military point of view Santiago was
the place where they were most apt to
"That was simply your opinion then,
and not a matter of Information." sug

replied In the affirmative. Kayner
then remarked that be bad never be

admiral bail based his statements.
I think you did." said the admiral.

"You have read it three times to me.

Shortly after this Kayner relin

and talked of the conditions In the isl

government said: Civil government

This is especially true in Luzon, where
the rebellion has been crushed."
Senator Dietrich visited the island
of Samar. where Company C. of the
Ninth Infantry, was ambushed aStur
day. "The Island is filled with ban
ditti and outcasts." he explained.
When the insurgents are driven out
of Luzon and the other nearby Islands
those who did not take the oath of
allegiance fled to Samar. In n short
time tbe island, which had been peace
able, was the hotled of trouble. All
