Mrs. Burgan helped us a great deal, and her work was much appreciated by all through out the convention. She was elect ed delegate to the National Conven tion, and we hope upon her return from there, she may be able to give us some new ideas along this line of work. There are now 24 Ys in this State, meaning about 350 girls in this work. Marshall has the greatest number of members Anna Gordon has increased by one-half its membership and Princeton has had the most business meetings of any in the State. At the roll call of unions and branches 13 delegates responded. The dues were raised to 75 cents instead of 50 cents 25 of which will be pay able for the State paper, White Ribbon, and it will be sent to every paying member. There will be at least two conferences held this year in the State, one of which will take place the last of June. The girls came home with more enthusiasm in this work than ever before, and have also some new plans which they will attempt to carry out in future. Delegates: Essie Burgan, Anna Long, Allie Jones. ALLIE E. JONES, THE PRINCETON UNION: THTJBSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1901. ftn'Wkntnwttnuuu! Pres. of Y. Winter Protection of Small Fruits. Many claim to have difficulty in raising small fruits in this section, because of injury from winter kil ling. While it is true that some of the less hardy kinds of raspberries will kill back under any circum stances, yet many if not most kinds will pass the winter in perfect conf dition if properly protected. Rasp berry vines, no matter of what variety, should be covered in the fall. The simplest and best cover ing is dirt. The vines should be bent to the ground and dirt thrown upon them until completely cov ered. This can best be done by bending the vines all one way, the tops of one plant laying over the base of the next. Avoid bending or breaking the stalks by digging away some dirt on the side towards which the plant is to be bent, and pressing the whole crown over with the foot, so that the roots are bent and not the stalk. This is especially important in covering blackberries, and if they are pro tected in this way, they will pro duce well in this region. This cov ering should be deferred as long as possible in the fall, or until just before the ground freezes. Strawberries should be covered with a mulch of clean straw, 3 to 4 inches thick. This should not be applied until after the ground has frozen hard. In the spring this mulch should be left on as long as possible, or until growth starts be neath it. The plants, thus retard ed, may escape late frosts on the blossoms. The mulch is then left between the rows, and serves to keep the moisture in the soil. HENRY H. CHAPMAN. Some policemen, contrary to the gen eral impression, possess a fine sense of irony. An inebriated individual in New York city recently approached a "plain clothes man" with the wholly irrele vant inquiry, "Are you a gentleman?" The officer's reply, made with almost startling abruptness, was, "Np, sir I am a policeman." Mr. John Winters of California, who abstracted and managed to hold for a few days the pleasant sum of $320,000 in gold bullion, will have 15 years, ac cording to the ruling of the court, to reflect on what might have been had not his little coup d'etat gone wrong. The Hawaiian woman's club at Hono lulu, debated the question: Is it better to take Rocky Mountain Tea hot or cold?" Either way it magnifies your pleasure. For sale by C. A. Jack. FOUR WITNESSES TESTIFY BE- FORE THE SCHLEY COURT OF INQUIRY ADMIRAL EVANS FINISHES "Fighting Bob" Goes Over His Inter- view With Commodore Schley After the Battle of Santiago Captain Sigsbee, Correspondent Dienaide and Chief Yeoman Becker Also on the Stand. Washington, Oct. 2.The Schley court of inquiry made good headway during the day, concluding with Ad miral Evans and hearing three new witnesses, although the testimony of one of them was not concluded when the court adjourned for the day. Admiral Evans' testimony was along the same general lines with his pre vious statement, but some points were presented in greater detail in response to questions by Mr. Rayner. The new witnesses were Captain Sigsbee, who commanded the scout St. Paul during the Santiago campaign, Mr. Thomas M. Dienaide, a newspaper correspond ent, who was on the Texas during the battle of July 3, and Chief Yeoman Gustave E. Becker, who was a clerk to Admiral Sampson during the war. Captain Sigsbee's testimony covered his communication to Commodore Schley upon the latter's arrival off Santiago, May 26, 1898, and a$t sub sequent dates and dealt with the state of the weather at that period. He was asked a great number of ques tions by the court. Mr. Dienaide described the loop of the Brooklyn as seen from the Texas. Mr. Becker testified as to dispatches sent by Admiral Sampson to Com modore Schley. Evans Finishes His Testimony. Mr. Rayner began his interrogations by asking Admiral Evans concerning the secret code of signals for commu nicating with the Cuban insurgents near Cienfuegos. The admiral said that when Captain Chadwick commu nicated this code to him he did not in struct him to give the information to Commodore Schley. Mr. Rayner then questioned the witness particularly as to his interviews with Commodore Schley after the battle of Santiago. The admiral denied having said that Captain Philip had run away or at tempted to run away. He said: "I think Commodore Schley and I discussed the position of the Texas when the fight began. The Texas ly ing with her head to the east when the engagement began and she turned with starboard helm and headed off in the same direction as the rest of us. She fired first with her short battery and then put her helm to starboard and headed in the same direction with the rest of the ships. I think that was the question I discussed with Commo dore Schley, I cannot be sure of it, but that I ever intimated that Captain Philip attempted to run away with the Texas is preposterous on the face of it." Admiral Evans admitted that at the meeting of May 29 instructions were given in regard to attacking the Span ish fleet in case itl eft the harbor, but he did not consider it a plan of battle. Used His Navigator's Figures. Questioned regarding the discrep ancy in the time given in his report and the report of Commodore Schley regarding the destruction of the Vis caya', Admiral Evans said that the time given in his report was furnished by the navigator and executive officer of the ship. He, himself, did not take the time. In regard to the speed the Iowa was making he could only say the ship was going as fast as they could make her go. He thought she, must have been going 9 1-2 knots an hour. In this connection Mr. Rayner asked a number of questions intended to show that the admiral's official re ports and his present statements as to speed were not consistent. Admiral Evans was also questioned as to his statements concerning the distance the blockading vessels were out at night. He had said that the vessels of the blockading squadron were farther out at night than during the day and Mr. Rayner read a previous statement from him to the effect that at daylight "we closed in." This the witness said was the exact fact, that after being out further at night, the vessels came in closer at daylight. He said that in steaming back and forth at night the vessel just ahead could be seen, but not the vessel at the head of the column. The Marble head could be occasionally seen, Tu the Vixen never. The witness said that while before Cienfuegos or on the way to Santiago the squadron had no orders for battle. The officers had no .instructions as to what to do in case the enemy ap peared. A Correspondent's Story. Admiral Evans was then excused and Thomas M. Dienaide, a newspaper correspondent, who was on board the Texas during the Santiago campaign, was called. Mr. Dienaide said that when the battle off Santiago began he was in the room of the junior officer of the ship and immediately went on the bridge with Captain Philip, re maining there until the captain went to the lower bridge with him. There he had remained until the chase of the Colon began. He had at the time made notes of the battle and these he iread. The Texas was then, he said, Reading in the general direction of the Spanish fleet. He saw the Brooklyn about 10 or 15 minutes after the battle began. She was on the port bow of-theTexas and going seaward. Her course was -at right angles to the Texas. He heard Captain Philip give the order, "Stop both engines helm hard starboard." It was a close shave. In regard to distance she was not over a quarter of a mile away. He heard no order to back the engines. Mr. Dienaide said in response to questions that he had on. the day of the battle written a report of the bat tle, but that these facts had not been given because Captain Philip had asked him to "make it nice for every- body," and this had been his own in clination. He *was then excused for the day and asked to bring his news paper report of the engagement into court in the morning. Captain Sigsbee's Testimony. Captain Sigsbee, who commanded the St. Paul during the Spanish war, was next called. He said that in obedience to an order from Captain Wise, who was his commanding of ficer, he had proceeded to the vicinity of Santiago, arriving there on May 21. His instructions were to report to Commodore Schley that the Spanish fleet probably was in Santiago harbor. He fell in with the flying squadron on the evening of May 26, the squadron then being 20 or 25 miles south of Santiago. He had reported to Com modore Schley that he "knew nothing positively" about the Spanish fleet. He was then asked if he had expressed his belief to Commodore Schley that Cervera's fleet was not in the harbor as reported by Commodore Schley. A controversy arose over the admissa bility of the question, and the court took a recess for luncheon before re ceiving the reply of the witness. When the court reconvened after luncheon Captain Sigsbee resumed his testimony. Mr. Hanna repeated his question, asked before recess, quoting from Admiral Schley's report of Feb. 18,1899, the sentence reading: "After having been assured by Sigsbee that he did not believe the Spanish fleet was in Santiago." The witness replied: "I stated that we had seen nothing of the Spanish fleet. I may have stated that I knew nothing positively or absolutely about Its movements, but I recited certain events to show that there was a prob ability of the fleet being in Santiago at that time." Chief Yeoman Becker on the Stand. Captain Sigsbee was then excused and Chief Yeoman Gustave E. Becker, who served as a clerk to Admiral Sampson on board the flagship Itfew York during the Spanish war, was called. He identified the memoran dum from. Captain McCalla, saying there was a good landing place near Cienfuegos, which Admiral Sampson sent to Commodore Schley under date of May 19, and said that this memor andum had been carried in duplicate by the Iowa and the Dupont. Mr. Rayner questioned the witness very closely, bringing out the fact that Becker had no records to show that either of these vessels had carried the memorandum and that he was de pendent upon his memory in making the statement. Mr. Hanna said in this connection that the department expected to be able to show that four copies of this memorandum had been forwarded to Commodore Schley. Mr. Rayner re sponded that he would admit one copy and that was delivered by the Hawk on May 23, 1898. The court adjourned for the day at 4 p. m., with Mr. Becker still on the stand. WELCOMED TO VICTORIA. Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York Enthusiastically Received. Victoria, B. C, Oct. 3.The Duke Victoria, B. C, Oct. 2.The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York ar rived at Victoria at 11 o'clock and a royal salute from the ships of the North Pacific squadron was the first feature of a long programme of wel come. The royal party made the trip from Vancouver to Victoria on the steamer Empress of India, which was convoyed by the ships of the North Pacific squadron. The warships were dressed in bunting and the flotilla was an imposing one as it steamed through the gulf of Georgia and into the straits of Fuca. The day was bright and warm and the duke and duchess spent most of the time on deck. A great crowd gathered in Roy al road and on the heights of Beacon hill as the fleet steamed into the outer harbor and the Empress of India docked at the outer wharf. The royal party was formally greeted by Lieu tenant Governor Sir Henry Joly and driven through cheering crowds to the parliament building, where ad dresses of welcome were presented by Mayor Hayward in behalf of the city John W. Pratt of Seattle for the Brit ish-American citizens, and Presbyte rians of Victoria. The duke thanked the people for their welcome. After the presentation of medals to the South African volunteers, the roy al party was driven through flag-lined streets amid great tumult. REJECTED BY YERKES. South Carolina's Claim for Refund of Taxes Turned Down. Washington, Oct. 2.Commissioner of Interal Revenue Yerkes has re jected the claim of the state of South Carolina for a refund of the taxes paid by the state agents as wholesale and retal liquor- dealers, amounting to something over $7,000. The commis sioner formally announced his decis ion in a few words without entering into any argument, as the case is now before the court of claims, where the department will present its views. The claim of the state was that the control of the liquor traffic was one of the state instrumentalities in secur ing the welfare of its people, and as such was exempt from taxation under the Constitution. Convention Ready to Dissolve. Havana, Oct. 2.The constitutional convention has addressed a letter to Governor General Wood, informing him that the changes which he sug gested should be made in the election law have been made and that the con vention, deeming its work completed, is ready to dissolve. It is probable that General Wood in his reply will suggest a dissolution. Was Crazed With Liquor. Eldora, la., Oct. 2.James Lane, an Englishman, about 60 years of age, shot his wife fatally and wounded his son-in-law, J. R. Barhite, in the neck Lane was crazed with liquor at the time. The affair took place at Alden, 18 miles northwest of here. THE WIND WAS LIGHT SECOND RACE OF THE INTERNA- TIONAL SERIES ISDE- CLARED OFF. SHAMROCK HAS BEST LUCK Columbia Leads at the Start, but the Challenger Gets Better Breezes and Is Half a Mile Ahead When the Con- test EndsThe Course Is an Equi- lateral Triangle, With Ten Miles to the Leg. New York, Oct. 2.The attempt to sail the second- of the present series of international yacht races for the blue ribbon of the sea proved a dis mal failure. The wind was exceed ingly light and variable, at times fall ing so low that the gossamer wind pennants, which are as light as thistle down, hung limp against the masts of the big single-stickers. At the end of four and a half hours, the two yachts having covered less than one half of the prescribed course of 30 miles and as there was no possibility of their fininshing within the time limit, the regatta committee declared the race off. When tue gun was fired announcing this decision the chal lenger was about half a mile ahead of the defender and to that extent the trial was a victory for Shamrock II. But the fluke demonstrated little as to the question of supremacy between the two boats, excerpt perhaps that Sir Thomas' new champion is more dangerous in light airs than was sup posed. The course was an equilateral tri angle, 10 miles to tne leg, the first leg being a beat due east into the wind. The Yankee skipper at the start out generalled his adversary in a splendid piece of jockeying, crossing the line in the windward berth 12 seconds ahead of the Britisher. This advant age Columbia held for two hours, while both yachts steered far off their course to the southward looking for a streak of wind that would profit them. Finally Barr declined longer to con tinue the vainless quest. He put his helm hard down and headed inshore on the starboard tack. The Shamrock at this time, after both had been sail ing in the same airs, was a beaten boat and her Skipper coul afford to Take a Gambler's Chance with fortune. He held doggedly on and fortune smiled upon him. Within five minutes he got a breeze out of the south which ruffled the crestless seas and wafted him like a ghost through the Columbia's weather. But this was not his best piece of good fortune. After this reverse the Columbia, slip ping through the seas at an astonisho ing pace considering the lightness5 the breeze, had worked out ahead of the Shamrock, but to leeward. When the two yachts were in this position, about two miles from the first turn, a cant of the wind threatened to blanket Columbia and to avoid such a possibility Barr went under Sham rock's stern. Just as he did so the wind hauled around more to the south, knocking the Columbia's head off un til, to the astonished spectators, she seemed headed almost back for the lightship at the starting line. The golden boat, favored by the same breeze, was headed in exactly the op posite direction. Then the shifting win! backed again and Barr got the Columbia straightened out again, a third of a mile behind the Shamrock. In this position the two boats rounded, the first mark, the Shamrock three minutes and eight seconds before the Columbia, or a gain for Shamrock in the beat to windward, adding the 12 seconds which Columbia beat her over the line, of 3 minutes and 20 seconds. During the next hour, in a close reach for the second mark, the yachts were able to cover about four or four and a half miles of the remaining 20. and as only 5 5 minutes then remained before the expiration of the time limit, the race was declared off. VALUE OF OHIO RAILROADS. State Board of Equalization Declines to Raise Assessments. Columbus. O., Oct. 2.The state board of equalization decided that it had no power to increase the value of the railroads of Ohio, as appraised, for purposes of taxation. The board was guided in its action by the opinion of the attorney general. A demand was made upon the board by Mayor John son of Cleveland that the appraise ment of the railroads of the state be raised to 60 per cent of their value as shown by the market value of their stocks and bonds. Mayor Johnson had previously declared that if the state board refused his demand he would bring mandamus proceedings to compel them to accede to it. Mrs. McKn|ey's Friends Hopeful. Canton, O., Oct. 2.Mrs. McKinley Is bearing up well. He usual trip to the cemetery was taken during the morning and the afternoon programme of a drive was observed. Dr. Rixey said during the day that Mrs. McKin ley's condition is such that all her friends are very hopeful that no change for the worse will occur. Turkish Situation Deplorable. London, Oct. 2.The Times pub lishes the following dispatch from its Constantinople correspondent: "The reports received at all the embassies and legations here from consuls in the provinces depict a situation every where so deplorable that an ambas sadorial conference and collective ac tion are contemplated." German Exports Increasing. Berlin, Oct. 2.Exports from the Berlin district to the United States during the quarter which has just ex pired amounted to $9,335,785, or an in crease of $1,863,156 upon the corre sponding quarter of 1900.
