Hon. On Thursday the court was unable to or?

member of the cou*-t. <'..mm.inil.-r Q. K. 1". WT..I ?
was. mentioned In the precept for the court, bu:
Commander Frank willes hal received the order
to attend ss a member. The matter w.is referred
to Washington fr decision, and, although C in?
man ler G. F F. Wl'.de, arbo ls . u walting ord rs
in Massachusetts, waa probably originally Intended,
lt wa.* el eel i.*<l tim Commander Frank Wildes, from
the Norfolk Navy Tart, ahould remain and nerve
on the court, ,i< h ? was already here.
Every'hing was .lon.- according to the Navy
regulations. The Judge-Advocate was sw..rr. In by
the president of the court, and th. n each mi mbi r of

afterward read In open c url by tbe Judge-Advo
cate, m ibe presence of Ihe accused, and Com?
mander Heyerman entered a ph i ,.f "not guilty"
to the two chaises and the thr-.- unectflcatl na.
Comman ier Heyerman ralai l an objection i> that
part of the specifications of the Hr*.' charge Which
rend: "Certain strong currents were known to
exist." and requewted thal i: be made more deW
nite than ""strong." winn the formalities c in
nected with the- organisation of the court had I???? ri
gone through with, another delay In th? proceed?
ings came. This was occasioned by the fr.'t that
for some- nason the witnesses bsd not 1 n or?
dered to be present, and there were none pr sent.
The c-Mirt therefore adjourned until 10:30 o'clock
this murnini*;, when lt is expected that tln-y will Li?

counsel tn the court of Inquiry, now has Lieutenant
Commander Adolph Marta, ami will doubtleea make
a defence through him. Lieutenant Charlea ll. Ly?
