This was tho opening chapter of the strugglo between tho frlonds of tho two Admirals, a chaptorthat wns embellished with sovernl In cldentnl reforonces to other officers who hnd also been advanced, notably Cnpt, Higginson, who lias boon mndoa Commodore, nnd Commo doro Watson, tho senior of both Sampson nnd Schloy, who appears to hate been forgotten al together. Sir. Datls moted tho oxecutlto session, nnd it was supposed thnt the treaty was to bo tnkon up Routino nominntion business almost always tnkos precodenco, and tho cases of Sampson and Schley stood nt tho bond of tho calendar. These protokod n debato thnt wns exciting nttimos nnd which consumed tho en tiro afternoon Tho action of tho Sennto In calling for the papers now on tho dask ot Secretary Lone shows that thore is n considerable number of Sena tors who belioto that no harm will rosult from an investigation of nil tho facts and tho transmission to the Sonnto of tho In formation which led tho Picsldont to ndtanco Sampson ten numbers and Schloy only eight, thoroby putting Sampson ahead of Schloy nnd t-.iui.K.iiu it ten mauve position neiuru me vv.tr began.

Sir Wellington In n speech somowhat pas sionnto In character declared that the Admin istration had gone out of its way to elovato Sampson at tho expense of Schley. Ho had looked into the matter thoroughly, and was convinced that tho department erred when it held that tho glory of that light belonged to Sampson. It was nonsense, tlio Senator t-fild, to claim thnt Sampson, ten miles uwar. and only In at tlio finish, wns tho renl man in eomrannd. In reply toj-tBtomonts that under tho rules of thenaty tlio Commodoio was within signalling! dis tance, and this kept him in his position of beinrf actually present and in command. Sir. Wellington said buth .i claim was nonsensi cal Sampson, he contended, gate no orders nnd was not in the light nt all, while tlio reports and the condition of the ships showed that Schley was in the thick of it, nnd that It was his tessel.l plunging nliead. that was the targot of the best marksmanship of the enemy. It was also claimed hi thoso who took a different view of thn caso that Schley had t Iolated orders by not coaling In front of Santiago, but this charge was refuted bv Sir Wellington, who assorted that when tho orders wero given Schley it was Impossible foi him to coal thero ovvlnc to tho rough seas. In short. Sir. Wellington contended that Schley was tho victim of the bureaucracy which, ho asserted, exioted In tho Navy Depart ment, and which had been used during and since thn war to punish those who could not defend thomselves The criticism of Sir Wellington was not aimed so much at Secretary Long as at Capt Crownlnshield, Chief of the Bureau of Navigation, nnd who has. as tho friends of Schle) say, used his In fluence with the Setretarv to brine about tho situation that now exists in the department. Sir Gorman defendeii tho claims of Schley in a calm and dignified speech The fact that Admiral Sclilev is a citizen of Slnrtland may have had much to do with tho attitude of tho two Senators from that State, but It did not appeal iu thli discussion of the Question Sir Gorman took tho ground that there was nothing in tho record of Schley derogatory to bun ib a natal oflltei, and nothing so glorious in tho record of Samp son, gre it an hid been his srv Ices to his coun try, tojustiiy the advancement which had been jnade and width place. I ,i junior oltlcer ahead of his senioi This net itelf was a reflection on bchle) which his friends natuially sought to lobuke Both the Sfnryland Senators Insisted that lit foin thn Senate took Html action on the question tho Senate should ho put In iiosses slon of all Iho facts, so that It could fur itself be the judge of whetlieror not the action of the di p irtment hid been just and fall to both ollltern This demand for tho papers, coming from n man like Mr Gorman, disconcerted those who hop. d for hfecdt settlement nf tho trouble some iiucstion It Inditnted the consump tion of tlmo in societ session that might otherwise he emplojed In the tons deration of tlio treaty of pence What was more to bo re gretful, it presented tho possibility of tho pub lii atlon ot fntls which tho Administration, It was Intimated, had endeavored to keep batk, and which would most cortalnly lead to bitter and acrimonious discussion Slessrs Lodge. Hnln and Chandler appealed to Sir Oormau and Sir Wellington to insist no further in demanding the papers, hut to per mit tlio action of the Administration to go un challenged Perhnps Sir Lodgo made the strongest presentation of the Sampson side of tho controversy. Sir Lodgo is preparing n bis tort of tii" rocont war. and has just concluded tho chapter devoted to the nntnl engagement at Snntiugn His cnrelulness as a Jitornry mnn nndhisaccurnc) asn historian hatecaused him to make n vetv rigid scrutiny ot nil tho official reports and to collate etery fact connected with that great light, whethor essential to the details of history or not Willi this matter fresh in his mind. Sir Lodge told the Sennto that it would buunvtiso to undcitake an investiga tion: in fact, that It would bo Impiudeiit It was n fact that could not be controterted. ho said, that Schley h'ul not obeved the. orileia that had been git en him Believing Cert era. was still nt Clenfuegos, Sehlev was loath to lento there when ordered to Snnllagoand nssuied that theio he would llnd the enemt Appearing in front of Santiago nnd knowing that he had bottled Genera, Schley withdrew, delibornleli dlsobejlng his orders Ha rubied tint hoi ould not coal at son (although ho did so hitori. nntl stnrtid for Koy Tt st. taking tho tolllerwitli him. and for forty hours, until ho wns turned back, the opportunity wns fntora blt! for the escape of Certeia Into the high seas One of tho threo Senators referred to told tho Senate tint tho records of tho de pirtmcnt showed thero was no ground loi tho statement tint had appear. d in print that the Biooklyn turned tail and inn dm lug the light TMien thn ships stnrted toward the mouth of tho hnrbor. iu ae c.iiilaiito with tho instructions anil plan of action laid down b) Sampson. on tlienppearanco of Certemihe Uiookltn rushed with the rest, but soon got out o' tlio w iv to pi unit the guns ol the battleships tohntvfull pint Tho method einplo)eit b) Schle) In puMuIng the euemv ttiiHiilsncrltl Isi d Instead n( plunging ah. ad to the west ns Cervein h nhlp started iu Hint dm ci Ion, n wnsn.iid that the Bruokltn tuipxd In thn i'ihI, milking a lalge cirtle. and mil) tinned h r iinoongalu in the dire tinn Ccrtcrn wiihlleuingwhi n that Admii.il'sahipittcruttoll ii i k1.ii wa) Inward u possible escape fiom tap line TIicm' tenitois contended tint, in tlmv of all these f.uin. tin. s..nnle ought not losllrup a situ in. mi Ihat was best undlstiube I it mull! only luing criticism upon Hie . .Iiltci a who hud been pioiiioteil nntl r 'llctt seriousl) up ni iho ii.im im n whole Bui thn Semite thought otherwise Theio were other officers who had friends in the Senati.iind these Scii nlors twiiitul all I ho fncts reg.inllehi.nl what Ihut i.'i'rnnr upon whom the) might icilott Si iiaiors Gorman and Wellington relti rated their pietlous assertion that public seutimtnt To fill. it.
