Davenport was enlaced ' by "" National Cordage Compnnr as lieail ' bookkeeper In tho Front street establishment at a sals r) of t'JAaweek. Hulme was Interested In ronlsgo to tho extent ot earn Intt a million of Ion stock. About February or March, IHD-, like some other people. Hulmo was anilous to know what the real condition of the comiany wa. One day ho was told by V. V. Hoser, of Sill Dean street, Brooklin, a reUtlvn of Haven port, that for a certain consideration Daren port would furnish a true statement ot the profit ami loss account of the National Cordage A Company. Hulme Jumpcil at the chance, and " nnprmdean appointment for Davenport to , meet Hulmo and talk oer the prospective deal. On April 2H, 18l'. the two men met Inanofllco ' In Wall street. Here they entered Into a verbal contract In which It was agreed that if Daven port would furnish Hulme with a true state ment of the protlt and loss account, llnlmo w otild give him J'.'O.OOO In cash and sell short for him B00 shares of National Cordage In anticipation of the tumble in price which the leakage of the Information would bring about. Itoicr was present at this Interview, and agreed to ait as go-between for tlie two men for a consideration, i Davenport v. as to draw up and sign an nnida.lt that the figures he might furnish w ould be an n I rate. Denport was kind enough tngivcalilnt ' to Hulme. beforo the ileal wns actual! made, that things were not what they seemed with Curd. s and Hulme began making preparations I at once not only to get rid of his holdings, but to sell-the snxk short on a large scale. May r. 1HIC. was the date set on which Dar uportwasto pass oer the figures to Hulme. I Three weeks before that date, it appeared, Dav enport received word from Superintendent llyrnee that he would get himself In trouble If he gate any outsider information about the National Cordage Company's affairs. This, to ' the least, startled Davenport and Hulme. It was evident that their proprosed deal had leaked out in some nay. but they determined to gonhead. Soon the evening of May IS, at H::i0 o'clock. Davenport, Jtoser. and Hulme met In Delnionlco's cart and after something to eat adjourned to Hulmo's rooms in nn apartment house In Twenty-seventh street, Jietween Mxtli avenue and Ilroadway. ltoer did not accompany them at once, but re mained In Delmonlco's, saying he would bo over and Join them In a few momenta. Ho the other two went to the rooms and were talking uv er k the deal when suddenly there was a knock ntion the door ami in walked First Vice-President Wall and Second Vice-President .Marshall of the National Cordage Company. Without wait- Ing to ask any question, they turned upon 1 lavenport and began accusing him of betravlng thecompan)'s lontlilence. They became angry and began calling hint uncomplimentary names and threatened to take the (taper out of his coat by force. Then, after discharging him on the spot from his placo as bookkceperof the company, they left. Hulme and Davenport were willing still to go on with the deal, at'cl began talking about it again when a boy arrived with a note from Mr. Marshall and Jlr. Wall, sajlng they would notify Superintendent Hyrnes, and that both Davenport and Hulms would be arrested by 10 ii'i lock in the morning if the papers Davenport had were not surrendered to them before morn ing. This so scared Hulme that he called tho deal off and absolutely declined to havo any thing mure to da with the figures. He put Davenport and ltoser, who had arrived in the mean time, out of his rooms. Davenport tried to force him to go on with the deal, but to no purpose. 1 lulme refused to give up the aflldavit which Davenport had already given him. The abo e Is the story of the relations between Davenport and Hulme as told by both of them. Consequently it waa simply left to Judge Freed man to decide whether the contract mado be . , tween Dsv enpnrt.anc. Hulmejjvnji a. slid con. i tract or not. The lawyers for the plaintiff were It. II. I-andale and David Cierlwr: for tho de fendant, Wellman. Dickinson. N I coll A- Urown. ltoser was puton the stand tint and told the stnry of what paused between Davenport and lliilruc. a printed above. He also stated that he himself had acted on the knowledgo of Nn. tlcnal Conlaga affairs as he received It from Hav enport. and that he had traded In the stock a num ber of times, and every time but once had lost money. Plaintiff Davenport waa the only other witness called. He told the same story as ltoser had told. Then Mr. Oerber picke4 up a small piece of paper and banded it to his client. What Is that paper r" he asked. "This paper," replied Davenport. "Is the statement of the profit and loss account for which Hulmu was to have given me the 120,- " Are the figures correct" "Yes; I made an affidavit to them." Then Mr. Oerber entered the paper ai evl- denceand read It to the Jurors. These are the figures: DIVIDENDS. &"J",LVlioM I23T.0OO .April S, ISIM , lrklnnci .

The steps Just taken for (he. purchase of additional land for tho new naval station at Algiers, on the Mississippi, m poltc the lower part of New Orleans complete tho preparations for securing tho site, and next winter Congress VtUliloJtbttiss be netted fo raako tho needed appropriation for begtnblug the erection of buildings thereon. Tho establishment of a dry dock and a Navy Yard at this point has been under consideration for many years. IndeeVI, Its original selection for the purpose was mado nearly half n century ago, and a tract was then bought. Hut It was much later that the subject was taken up again In a way that has led to this final solution. While Hecretary Whitney was at the head of tho Nnry Department, Congrrss passed an ait providing for a commission, which was to re port as to the most desirable location, on or near tho coast of Mcxkn and tho Houth At lantic coast, for Navy Yards and dry docks. The Commission appointed under this ncl consisted of Commodore W. I McCann, Capt. Itobert Uo)d, and Mout.-Commanitcr W. It, llrownsnn. It was soon apparent that there would be a great deal of competition among the Southern sea-toast cities to secure this sard; but tho Commission reached this conclusion: After carefully weighing sll the silrsnlstet and dl sdtsntiiircsnr Algiers s anile for a Laval nation, the Commission It of the opinion that, while the ot tt not sn Ideal one, nn other plai-e In the flulf compares with It In the advantage nffrrrd, and 'that the ad vantages are ao many and mi great, and nuiwrlari the ril.ad'antagrs to turn an rttent, that tht Cnmmli.liin hat no Imitation In recommending the lucallim nf the Navy Yard and dry duck at the pretcut Uorern ment rescrratlon st Algiers. It will be obterved that the McCann Commis sion declared that the site nt Algiers was not an Ideal one. nnd that It had disad.antngcs. The two main drawbacks were found to be Its liability nt times to yellow fever, nnd Its further liability to lie Hooded by the Msltlppl freshets. The latter was an objection so well drllncd that some of the friends of other sites took pains to exhibit to Set retur) Trnc,hu came tntoion trol before the lunttcr wntdeddeil, and to the Nn.at Committees of Congress, a lot of photo graphs which showed the spot at Algierx com pletely submerged b an overflow of the liver. That consideration even led one of the members of the Commission to think, serlijusl of sulv stltutlng.a silo on II road Hirer, between Port Hojal and Savannah. However. It was shown that the objection In question could bo oln Intiil, As toellow fever, thu dangers of that disease do not prevent other btilncss from going on regularly at New Orleans, nnd while It might dlvsunde some skilled mechanics, such as are needed for shipbuilding, from going from the North to Algiers during its prevalence, or from fear of Its approach, et this drawback ought not to outweigh tho advantages of the site. Tho liability to jellow fever has greatly dimin ished the value of the Navy Yard at l'cnsacula; but It Is an objection more or lets applicable to all sites mi the ilulf and Its tributaries and yet a new Navy Yard In that region Is greatly needed. With a view to making the best disposition forthc linvcrnmcnt's needs the McCann Com mission also r.ommcnded the ettnhlithraent of ndr duck, a, depot of naval supp!lc.and n coal ing station on Purls Island, nt Pott Hojal, win re tho Government Already had a navnl station. This recommendation was acted upon, and tho Umber dry dock authorized at that point It now well along tow aril completion. The damage wrought there, however, by lut vcar's norm was an argument In favor of the wleitlnn of I Algiers for the new navy urd: or, t all evi-ntn. I It showed that thern were draw lucks also tn the ' other points suggested tor It. I However, the reiort of the McCann Commit- ston did not finally settle the fitetlou. since the advocitesof otlu rsltenurgilid -troiigtv ugalii.t ' the 'election of Algiers. Ai lordinglv Congress, 111 another aunu.il appropriation in t. prov ided furtheuppolntment nf a eiond toiiimissioii. to consist of tw o nuvnl offli cr. nn army nfllt er. und two civ Uiant. to select the site for a dry dock on tho shores of Uetlitr of Mexlc n or the w nters i onnccted with It. This prnc ticallv oiient-d the whole subject again. In order tninnke Its ex aralnatton thdrough. the nc-n- CnuimIslonsr visited varlout liolliti-. Imludliig Kev West, j Tampa. Pciiisarol.i. .Mobile, Port Kails, New i Orleans, (ialveston, and Arant.is Pos. The Commissioners were empowered, in sx U-ct J Ing n nlte. to have regard both to the com-1 merclal und naval necessltlesor the locality, nnd I If the site should lie on private lancit to ettlm.itn its value and OMertalu the prlco for wh'ih It could bo purchased. In general theCommlotloii concluded that tho site ought to have n deci water frontage, so aa to aci.wmnu)datv ahljei if the deepest di aught. ItwatconsUlercd a. further adv auUge that it should be far enough up miuic stream to have fresh water, so tlui the steel ships laid up at Its docks would not deteriorate. It must bo callable of defenco frmn attacks, either by sea or by land, and would lie all the better for helnglandlockcd ltrwinlretl fm-lllties for Inland tranportalInn.wi.h plcnti of laborat hand and available, and It should tx-.ln a healthy locality. In Its report the Comuiltsion mentioned at primary requisites for the dry dock "a clear channel to the sea at least twenty -six feet deep, stability of foundation to support a load of 1.V00O tons, and protection, either by n distance of twelve miles or by an Interv enlng elev at Ion of ground, from gun flro from the sea." With all other things equal, proximity to a centre of com mercial and naval Interest was held to be u determining elemeut In the selection of a site. Taking these points together, it becomes clear why this second Cornnilsslouafflrnicd the t tiolce of Its predecessor. Key AVttt and Tortugns Keys were found to be too close to the ra and exposed to tlie fire of on enemy. At Tampa, Pensacola. and Mobile tho channels were too shallow. And the Katun objection applied tn most other points visited. The South Pass nf the M IsslsslDtd. however, afforded an entrance twenty-six feet deep to a harbor sufllelentlyill tant from tho sea to be- safi f nun gun lire. New i Orleans presented tho further miufslte of u roll- i road centre, giving easy transportation of mate rial from all quarter, with u large population from which labor cnuld be drawn Tim bank of the river on the Algiers side. Irnm the Southern Pacilio Railroad ferry, '.'.ijoo or :i,000 feet down want, was found to bo clear and lean, u hlle an additional advantage was that the lion rntm-nt already owned there a reservation of ;HJ fest front on the river by tt.Nt feet deep. Adjoin ing property waa avallabln for purrlmv. Thus the various steps have been taki n in the long and careful Inquiry now consummated by the purchase! of thu additional land required. The establishment of a new llulf Navy Yard and dry dock will bean Important and mucli-ncrdrd addition tn our naval otrlclencv and to th Srovlsionsalsn for coast defence. The frequent ocklns required !y our unsheathed Href war ships makes It Imperative to supply other dry docks, while tho vard at Algiers iu furnlthlng faculties for repair may save the vnvagetn Nor folk of ships that are svrv ing on station in the (iulf and are In need of overhauling. Congress should not fall tn make any necessary prov isinii for carry ing on the work at tho coming session. Auatoit.i'JKiicjyo ..iry..s. Eaploslve IroetlJea for the.

Washington, Oct. 15,-The onluanre officers of the navy are making arrangements for a great competitive test of half-ton explosive pro jectiles for the 13-lnib peacemakers of the three battlo ships, and it Is expected that the date upon which firing Is to bo commenced nt the Indian Head proving grounds will be selectee! In a duy or two. Tlie hardened armor-piercing shells for these big gutis liave already been ob tained. Not many of them were nerdrd, and It was not found difficult for American foundries to produce an article vv hlrli would perforate the toughest armor plato existing afloat. The 1'nlted States has only twelve of the 1.1-Inch guns, and the) are to go In the turrets of the Indiana. Massachusetts, and Oregon, It is doubtful If these shlis will have In use many of the armor piercer.
