SCHLEY !N COMMAND
Admiral Produces Evidence That
He Bossed the fight Off
Santiago de Cuba.
WIO-WAGS ORDERS TO THE OREGON
: Sampson Said to Have . Been
Warned That Dons Were
Up to Something.
Washington, Oct. 4. Ia the in
quiry court this afternoon the ques
tion as to whether the word in tbe
Dear Schley" letter should be San
tiago or Cienfnegos again came up
on a statement by Capt. Lemly, who
said he would continue to hold the
Santiago version. Bayner said If this
was the case he wonld be compelled
to summon Sampson, author of the
dispatch, as a witness.
Washington. ' Oct. 4. Admiral
Schley's counsel succeded iu dragging
Admiral Sampson's name into the
hearing aud placed him in. what they
cousider a disadvantageous light. They
laid the foundation to establish that
Schley warned Sampson the night be
fore the battle of Santiago that there
were suspicious movement in the vi
cinity of the Spanish fleet. The infer
ence left was that although Schley
did his duty and warned Sampson, the
latter sailed away the following morn
ing and was absent wheu Cervera's
fleet tried to escape a few hours later.
Conduct of Admiral Schley.
Lieutenant James Doyle, divisional
officer On the Brooklyn, was ou the
staud when this development ap
peared. He said that Schley saw
smoke iu the harlor the night of July
J. and that iie believed the eouim
dore uot tiled the commander-in-chief.
Admiral Sampson. The witness stat
ed that he had observed Schley every
time bai be was under fire during
the r VM,r,'nlo,u r ,m" -l, "d Ihe
l.attl. r July 3.
"W it was his conduct" asked At
"He was as well posscssi'd as man
could Im under such circumstances."
Why the ueetloa 1Va Aaked.
Just here Kayner said the question
was asked in line with "the fiit spec
ification of his precept. his conduct
In connection with the events of the
Santiago campaign.' and what was
his conduct and bearng alt any time
cither during the Ivonibaidnieiits or
during the battle of July 3. whcu.h's
ship was under tiro?" Ihe judge advocate-then
brought out the fact that
Doyle "w as not with Schley " wlieiV he
tra'nsfe-red bis tint: to the Masaeuu
nctts and shelled the Colon.

vhenthe. afternoon session ' bega.ii.-
and. referring to the log of the-Brooklyn,
gave the course of that ship May
steaming from Cienfnegos. and the
distance made. He traced the progress
of the flagship to Santiagq : and- de
scriled her position during the. block
ade and the battle. The witness could
find nothing In the log about the ob
servation of smoke In the harbor July
3. which be said was commulncated
by Schley to Sa nrpson.
LOGS SEEM TO BE UNRELIABLE
FroofThat Ihe Squadron Waa In Command
A good deal of what Doyle said was
calculated like some former testi
mony to give a landsman mighty lit
tle confidence in logs. Here was- a
case in which a point was Involved
that Is considered of the utmost Im
portance by the "Schley people, yet the
log says nothing about It: and this was
closely followed by another omission
which would seem to be fully as Im
portant. Said Doyle: "'tlie Oregon, during
that case and while we were ou the
top of the turret, was directed to try
her thirteen-inch guns on the chase,
which she did. and tlie shots fell short.
In a little while they were tried agalu.
and came a little closer."
Admiral Dewey Directed by whom?
"By Commodore Schley, sir: by wig
wag signals, as 1 remember it."
Admiral Dewey You saw that sig
nal? "Yes. sir: I saw the signal being
Admiral Benham Did you read the
"I did uot. but I unoNuood " liiit
It was, and if I am uot uu-Tken it
was McCauley. an ensign we had ou
liard. who made tlie sigual himself.
Later Lemly took the witness aud
made inquiries concerning the wig
wag signal, to the Oregon from the
r.rooklyn to fire her tbirteen-iuch gun.
'I he witness said that hp was sure that
lie had seen the signal mode, but that
lie was unable to find an entry of the
signal in "Iheship's log. Reading the
log he found a notation of spveral sig
nals and then a note saying that "other
unimportant signal had lieen made."
Hanna inquired whether the witness
thought the signal to the Oregon was
iuclnded In that list. Lieutenant Doyle
Dovle lvnlied that it might be: that he
could not say how the log writer bad
regarded the matter.
Caotain Lenil.v asked a numlier of
questions that called for an explana
tion of what the witness meant jcs.
terilav when he said he thought that
just after the !eglnniiig of, the battle
of Julv :i liere was a prospect oi a
"melee"."' "I thought." responded the
witness, "that the shiis were coming
rnrht toward us. I thought they would
eet Into us. and I thought we would
. . . .
ia vP a mix-up. as iney wereouiy uooui
l.l'Wi yards distant."
Admiral Dewey was greatly interest
ed In Doyle's testimony. At one time
an effort was made to hand him a bul
letin of the yacht races off Ntt York.
but he waved it aside while the lieu
tenant was talking. After this inter
esting wiine? had been discharged by
Judge Advocate Lemly fho Admiral
nodded bim a smiling good -by.
Commander Bush, of tlie hydro
graphic office, testified to the cornct
ness of the map which Judge Advocate
Lenily had offered for reference.

II. A. Foss, weighmaster of the Chi

grain trade of the country facts which
had lieen wanting for many years, and
which promise to be of unlimited value
to every one iu the commercial world.
Foss paper wa-s on two subjects. "Sug
gestions on Seals aud Ciphering" and
"Loading of Cars." Both are of great
Importance just uow in grain circles.
According to Foss mosj of the discrep

are due to variation in weights, waste
and unserviceable cars.

and who would have no personal in

Miould be given full power to swear

They declared that she bad been en
