tho spirit of poaoo, unoortain as to
whethor it should alight, was hovering
over tho land. Now York was aflamo
with passionate patriotism, and any
thing smacking of tho Confodoraoy was
not tolerated. Fooling ran high, and
woo was it for any who braved tito pop

tho oauso of tho south. /
'i Thoodoro Roosovolt, tho oidor, do
oidod at about that timo tc givo somo
groat social funotion. Tho Roosovolt
mansion was accordingly bravely dook

From ovory window, savo ono, flew tho
Stars and Stripos. That ono was of
Mrs. Roosevelt's boudoir. Hor hus
band had not dosigned to omit it from
tho decorative sohomo, but she would
havo nono of it. ' Instead, sho hit up
on a plan that would oloarly rovoal hor

and her husband, but dotorminod to
show that all in that houso woro not of

Going to tho window, she firmly fixod
its statt and allowod its folds to nutter
from tho hrotze.
On tho instant, almost, tho hostile

As mobs will, so ono began to grow
and soon tho icreot was ohookod with

EVIDENCE OP CONSPIRACY,
A Specimen of the Testimony in tho
Tho most remarkable testimony yot
givon boforo tho Sohloy court of inquiry
is that of Lieutenant Oommandor L. P.
Hoilnor, who was navigating officer of
tho Texas in tho battle of Santiago.
Dosoribing to tho court tho alleged
dangor in which tho Texas was plaood
by tho Brooklyn's oolobratod "loop,"
Hoilnor eilirmod that tho distauoo
botwoon tho two ships was only 100
yards, yot whon ho was givon thoof
?oial churl drawn up by Hoilnoj him
solf and signed by him and othor naval
officials including Scorotary Long it was
shown that tho noarost tho Brooklyn
oamo to tho Toxas was half a milo.
Hoilnor promptly oxtrioatcd himoolf by
declaring tbo chart inaoouvato and this
refutation of thc o Hi nal document was
approvod by .Judge Advoe V.o Lcmly.
This is very strange, for tho obart in
question purports to havo boon prepar
ed by flovou naval offioers, tho navigat
ing officers of tho participating vosscls,
ondorsod by tho soorolary of tho navy
as correot and submitted to tho sonate
committee in substantiation of the
charges against Sohloy. Tho seorotary'a
roport tho ohart olosod by saying: "In
roooniling difforo&Ofl of opinion in re
fard to d'stanoos, bearings, rangos, oto.,
ull lihorty was given to tho ropro
sontativo of tho Bhip under dis

or data ho OO????OIO? mjoosuury, and
tho boaid submits this report with a
fooling that undor tho oiroumatanooa

Hoilnor repudiates his recollection of

also disorodits Hoilnor's tostimony,*
