Mr. Rayner—What was the bearing of Com modore Schley during this engagement or any engagement In which you saw hlmt Witness—His bearing and manner, with re spect to an officer of his rank and station In the naval service, were naturally those of a Commander-in-chief of a naval force on that occaslon. The witness said that the commodore had occupied a place on a platform around the conning tower during the engage ment. This, he said, was a. position of danger, as the commodore was there al ways in full view of the enemy's ships. Mr. Rayner—lt has been stated here that the Brooklyn ran 2,000 yards away from the enemy's ships in making her loop. Witness—Any witness who made that state ment, although he may have stated what he thought had occurred, is absolutely mistaken. Mr. Rayner—How far did she. go from the enemy's vessels? Witness—She must have gone about 600 yards to the southward, as that is about the tactical diameter of the Brooklyn at that speed. Mr. Rayner—Did thta turn interfere with the Brooklyn's ability to keep up her fire? Witness—lt did not. She continued to flre from her aft turrets. Mr. Rayner questioned the witness concerning his reported colloquy with Admiral Schlcy during the battle, in which the commodore was reported to have said: "Damn the Texas." Mr. Ray ner asked witness if it was not Captain Cook who had given the order to port helm. The reply was that Captain Cook might hsive Klven the order to the man at the wheel. Mr. Kuyuer—Did Commodore Schley give the order to port the helm? Witness—He d;d. Mr. Kayner—Was the helm already aport? Witness—l guess so. Captuin Cook says so. Objet-ts to "GuesH." Objection was nude by Captain Lemly to the use of tho word of "guess" by the witness, but Admiral Dewey said the I form of expression was immaterial, and ! askcl that counsel should not interrupt. I Witness said that when his conversa tion with Commodore Schley had occurred on the Brooklyn the commodore was I ■landing on the platform around the con ning lower and two or three feet from himself (the witness), and that Captain Cook, a part of the time, stood in the door of ,the conning tower four or five feet diatant. Captain Cook had taken part in thfc conversation. Mr. Rayner then questioned the witness very closely in regard to the conversa tion and the colloquy and the language used by Mr. Hodgson in his correspond ence with Admiral Schley. He read the newspaper version of Commander Hodg son's statement of the colloquy, as fol lows: Schley—Hard aport. Hodgson—You mean starboard? Schley—No, I don't; we are uear enough to them (the Spaniards) already. Hodgson—But we will cut down the Texas. Schley—Damn the Texas. Let her look out for herself. Mr. Rayner then had the witness scru tinize >the letter which he had written to Admiral Schley on June 8 and drew from him the statement that he had not then Informed the witness that he had used the expression "Damn the Texas." When witness was asked if he thought there was any suggestion of such an ex pression, he replied: "When I suggested to Commodore Schley that there was danger of colliding with the Texas, he said: 'Damn the Texas.' He used the expression as not in any way condemning the Texas from being there, but as If he was Irritated as one might be about anything." Never Said It. Mr. Rayner asked then about the ex pression attributed to the witness: "She will out down the Texas." Commander Hodgson replied that there was no such, expression in the letter and that he had never said that the Brooklyn would cut down the Texas. "There is a good deal in that reported oolloquy that I did not say," he added. "The statement was never made, but the Commodore did say 'Damn the Texas.' " He said that the dialogue as reported ■was fictitious and that he had denied its verbal accuracy, while not denying the truth of a part of it. He said that he had told Schley thar he could not repudi ate the entire statement and that he had not understand him to request that he should do more than deny its verbal ac curacy. He already had before writing his explicit denial told the admiral that he could not deny the whole story. He had given the newspaper reporter author ity originally to quote him as authority for the gist of the statement. At this point Mr. R»yner introduced as evidence the official report made by Cap tain Chadwlck of his examination of the witness with regard to this colloquy, for the purpose, as he said, of showing dis crepancies between the statement made in that examination and the statement made now. The introduction of this report caused Captal.T Lemly to offer a statement made by Lieutenant Commander Heilner on the same subject, but Mr. Rayner objected to this statement as not pertinent, and the court sustained the objection. Other state mpnts were put in as evidence without objection and Captain Lemly offered a letter from Captain Chadwick to the sec retary of the navy in regard to an tapla nation contained in a letter from Com mander Hodgson which had just been read and offered as evidence. Mr. Rayner called attention to the fact that this letter contained an expression of opinion, where upon Admiral Dewey said: "We don't want it. We have not taken opinions here." Captain Lemly said that he had only offered these documents for the purpose of making the record complete. The court at this point adjourned for luncheon. Suppressed by Dtwey. The afternoon session began with aj Question put to Lieutenant Commander"! Hodgson by Mr. Hanna. He asked why he i had written his categorical denial of the i newspaper report of the colloquy between himself and Comander Schley. The ques himself and Commander Schl«y. The ques said: "We have the facts. the letters were written. That Is all the court wants. We want facts—facts. People are influenced by different kinds of things. We want the facts. Draw out the facts. Eruptions Dry, moist, scaly tetter, all forms of eczema or salt rheum, pimples and other cutaneous eruptions pro ceed from humors, either inher ited, or acquired through defective digestion and assimilation. To treat these eruptions with drying medicines is dangerous. The thing to do is to help the system discharge the humors, and strengthen it against their return. Hood's Sarsaparilla permanently cured J. 0. Hines, Franks, 111., of eczema, from which he had suffered for some time; and Miss Alvina Wolter, Box 212, Aleona, Wis.. of pim ples on her face and back and chafed skin on her body, by which she had been greatly troubled. There are more testimonials in favor of this great medicine than can be published. Hood's Sarsaparilla Promises to cure and keeps the promise. Don't put off treatment. Buy a bottle of Hood's today. Mr. Hanna—All I want to find out la the occasion for writing this letter. Admiral Dewey—The court don't want that information. We do not need that. Mr. Hanna then changed his question and the witness said that he bad writ ten his explicit denial in response to a re quest from Admiral Schley. He contin ued: "He wanted me to write a denial of the controversy. I had previously written that I could not deny the statement. A letter fol lowed asking for a denial of the colloquy. I gave him this at the same time explaining that I had admitted to the gist of the report." Mr. Hanna—Have you anywhere denied the substantial accuracy of the facts as set forth in the report of that colloquy? Witness—On the contrary, I have admitted It. Witness said that Commodore Schley had not said, as reported, that the Brook lyn was too near ithe Spaniards. Com mander Hodgson said that he objected to the tone of the newspaper report which had put him, a Junior officer, in the ab surd position of holding a controversy with the commodore. Changing the line of examination, Mr. Hauna then asked: Did Kot Blanket the Teia». "When th« Brooklyn turned with port helm did she blanket the fire of the Texas' Did she go between the Texas and the enemy?" Witnessl—l do not think she did. I thought, however, she was going to do it. Sir. Hanna—Had she turned the other way waa there space enough for her to have made such" turn without endangering the Texas? Witness—Perfectly, perfectly clear enough apace. Mr. Hanna—How much would she have gained to the northward and westward had she turned with starboard helm? Witness—She would have gained a position of about 600 or 700 yards nearer the Spanish line. Mr. Hanna—Would that distance have been reduced by reversing the port engine? Witness—lf you turned the port engine the tactical diameter would have been short ened but the speed of turning would have been reduced. Mr. Hanna—l understood you to say you suggested the reversal of the starboard en gine at the time this turn was made, and that that was rejected by Commodore Schley after consideration and discussion. Are you clear that the starboard engine was not re versed? Witness—l am very clear on that fact. No signal was made. Captain Lemly—Are you clear that the col loquy or, as you call it, dialogue, as given by you to-day, was between you and Commo dore Schley and not between you and some other person on board the Brooklyn? Witnsss—There was no dialogue. There were three people interested in that conver sation—Commodore Schley, Captain Cook and myself participating in ft. PACIFICOS THE MURDERERS Further Light I'pon the Maaaacre of Company C. Manila, Oct. 7.—Major Morris C. Foote of the Ninth United States infantry, who has returned here from the island of j Samar, was in Balangiga the day before | the disaster to Company C. He says that i Captain Connell had been fully warned, and had taken what he (Major Foote) considered every necessary precaution. Information that a plot was brewing among the Filipi*os came to Major Foote from a prieat, who said that it was the plans of the populace at North Balangiga and Basey to attack the garrisons, and that the Basey garrison was to be at tacked from a cockpit in the rear of the barracks. Orders were immediately given i to demolish the cockpit, and extra guards I were stationed. There is intense feeling throughout the army because of the massacre, which would not be the case to any such extent had it been the work of ordinary insur gents. The latter might have been ex pected to commit such an outrage. Feel ing is particularly intends in military cir cles because the authors of the massacre I were paciflcos, most of whom had taken j the oath of allegiance, and many of them, including the presidents of Balangiga, wore actually holding office. Some of the after effects are already i fhown at many points, particularly at, Baulan and Caloecan, in the provinces of j Batangas and Manila, where disaffection I is manifesting itself, although it is not likely to be allowed to go far.

HAMPTON FOR SENATOR Plan to Avoid a Bitter Campaign in Sonth Carolina. A'etr York Sun Special Service Columbia, S. C, Oct. 7.—Political cir cles are roused by State Chairman Jones ■withdrawing from the United States sena torial race and suggesting a plan by which a bitter campaign can be avoided and General Wade Hampton returned to the senate after an absence of eleven yearg. Senator Tillman, who is credited with having kept Hampton "burled," is back ing Colonel Jones in this plan. The state chairman issued his card of withdrawal "for the good of the party and to honor General Hampton," who all factions np*w acknowledge tyas shamefully used when Tiliman first came into power. Jones sug gests that all aspirants for Senator Mc- Laurin's seat, including the junior sen ator, withdraw as candidates. If General Hampton will agree to let the people vote for him. There will then be no campaign for the senate and under primary rules only the votes cast for General Hampton will toe counted. If McLaurin will with draw the other candidates will do like wise.

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOUBNAL. SINCE BURGLARS "GOT BUSY" Citizens Displaying Great Ingenuity in Con cealing Valuables and Contriving Im promptu Burglar Alarms. First Citizen—Good morning, neighbor, how did you get through the night? Second Citizen—Fairly well. I hid my ■watch in the aßh barrel and put the family valuables in the coal bin. I missed nothing but the storm windows. The girl's young man sot on. tut? pcroh until late and the steps are intact. This is a sample of the pleasantry in dulged in by the residents of Sunnyside, Lowry Hill and other fashionable districts in the city who have thrown their doors and windows open to the "burgling" fra ternity lately. Things are really getting "good" In the burglary Hoe. In fact, business is boom ing as never before. The houses of tha rich and the well-to-do are touched up nightly, and the touchers are not mo- SLEEPING WITH ONE EYE OPEN AND FULLY ARMED. lested. There are some 200 men dis tributed over the city, wearing blue coat* and carrytng clubs, who are going to watch them as soon as they can, but that's no matter. Some twelve or fifteen w.ise men, in very plain attire, have promised to do as much when they get around to it. On the face of the returns, so^to speak, It seems absurd to make an effort to gather burglars this fall. In the first place, the policemen are taking on fat for the winter and ought not to be worked hard. In the other place, the continued, pciI- petual string of burglaries in defiance of law and order, policemen or pistols, would seem to prove the soundness of Mayor Ames' fortifications. For, says the mayor: We need 100 more policemen. I want them in my business. Many a poor patrolman has to keep awake all night and look sharp to escape the clutches of lawbreakers in a vast territory. Give me one hundred more men and I wiJl secure the norn er run these burglarizing gentry out of town. But the powers have denied the mayor's application and placed the same on file with other requests for "work." The mayor says he can't make the I burglars behave. He has asked them to, but they won't mind him. He can't com pel them to obey because he hasn't police- j men enough to catch them red-handed in | acts of criminality. He has even gone so j far as to tell the police to look out for i them. In some districts he thinks a j couple of coppers at each door, one on the barn and a plainly garbed piper in front of the house, would be about right. His idea is a flying platoon—catch 'em in Sunnyside one night, in Lowry Hill dis trict next night, Harmon place Wednes- '■ day night, and around the town on other nights. (But he hasn't the coppers.) Devicea of Householders. An amusing feature of the present reign of terror in the localities visited by the thieves, are the precautions taken to deceive them. Family valuables are hid den with the greatest care, and the up-to date burglar never thinks of looking on chiffonnieres, dressers, bureaus, etc., for diamonds nowanights. He rips off the wall paper, tears up the carpets, -goes through the rag bag, "rubbers" the fire place or searches for holes in the cellar. He didn't know all that when he started in to "do" Minneapolis, but people have been getting wise since the inception of his visits, about Aug. 15. HORSEMEN TO HELP Will Give a Matinee for the Sewell Fund. A BENEFIT AT THE HOLMES HOTEL 'Twill Be in the Form of a _ Sapper and Dance Friday'■"■'•';.'';'..*. _•,/■■■;;■ ljveninar. '* v. , ■'.-.]: J A special matinee will be held at the Minnehaha driving park next Saturday afternoon for the benefit of the Sewell fund. The card will include a number of regular heat races, and in addition the management extends an invitation to horsemen generally to turn put and fur nish entertainment. In this way several Impromptu brushes are counted upon to add to the entertainment. No charge will be made for horses or vehicles and all privileges of the club will be free, in cluding the use of the clubhouse and grandstand. The admission fee will be 25 cents only, and a large attendance is ex pected. ' Next Friday evening A. L. Hazen, pro prietor of the Holmes hotel, and R. W. Munzer of the firm of Evans, Munzer & Pickering, will give a social supper and dance at the Holmes hotel, tickets to which will be $1. This, too, is for the benefit of the fund, and every cent taken In from the sale of tickets will go to Mrs. Sewell. M. L. Rothschild and I. Kauffmann have already bought two blocks of tickets to the dance, which promises to be a great success. The fund being raised by the Fairmont Daily Sentinel now amounts to $26, and it is growing constantly. The Sentinel is doing good work in urging upon its readers the merit of the fund. Up to 2 o'clock to-day the money actually paid in on account of the fund amounts to $3,287.22. This Includes the $1,020 raised by James Marshall at the Chamber of Commerce, of which $900 was previously reported. Mr. Marshall has now completed his work, and will turn the money over shortly. The total, how ever does not Include the Daily Sentinel Dining Off Human Flesh Special to The Journal. Tacoma, Wash., Oct. 7.—Human flesh, chiefly that of babies and young children, la being sold in market places throughout the Chinese province of Shan-see at 180 cash per catty of one and a third pounds, according to news received here. Famine prevails throughout the Shan-see and not fewer than 300,000 poeple will have died of starvation before the crops are harvested. All rioe brought in from adjoining provinces sells at ten times iti nortnal value. In extremity people have commenced to eat human flesh to presreve life until relief reaches them. A favorite (family) way of apprising themselves of the approach of a burglar is to sit up all night and "lay" for him, paradoxical though it may seem. An other is to hang out cowbells and tin cans on doors and windows. The weakness of this plan is that the noise disturbs the children and does not curtail the activi ties of the burglar. The plan has worked well with the raw recruits who have been induced to "burgle" by the snap afforded by the police, but the old hawks who have been doing business here for months are not to be "shoo-ed" away by any old maid devices. A thing which is wholly inexplicable to Former Mayors W. H. Eustis and Rob ert Pratt is that their administrations were never annoyed with such an outpour ing of the burglarizing spirit as now be sets the present "police regulations." In Mr. Eustis' time many hold-ups occurred and much petty thieving was done, but in those days the country swarmed with Idle men who could not get a day's work to save their lives. They were hungry, pen niless and they stole and went to jail willingly, being assured then of a place to sleep and a bite to eat. But even during that period, no organized gang pursued its operations for months without a single check. Mayor Pratt, too, had a few unlucky experiences with criminals, but nothing to compare with the wholesale burglaries, roberies and miscellaneous thieving which characterizes the recent police records. But there is no disposition here to be come serious over a laughing matter —as the burglars would say. They have their living to make and if they were arrested and convicted, the state would have to suport them. As it is now, it is different. Business Is Good. Another thing: It Is an ill wind that does not blow right for somebody. In the past ten days agents of trap guns, bur glar escapes, and patent adjustable thief catchers; h.av« invaded the city and found a ready market for their wares.. One of these devices, which sells for $30, is a combined live wire killer and electric alarm. • It can be placed in the hall and the wires strung about the house. When A HOME-MADE BURGLAR ALARM. the family retires for the night, the cur rent is turned on, and any burglar who connects with one of the wires may be re moved in a wagon the following day. The trouble with this device is that it is hard on somnambulists. The inventor frankly admits that connection with one of the live wires will topple a sleep walker as quickly as it will a burglar. However, the machine is all right for people who do not walk the floor nights and who can remember to turn the current off before breakfast.

Special to The Journal. Helena, Mont., Oct. 7.—Lieutenant Gen eral Nelson A. Miles, who has Just re turned from a trip over the northern roads on a tour of inspection of the mili tary posts In the northwest, says: I am surprised at the wonderful progress being made in the development of the north west and am more Impressed than ever with the advisability of the United States develop ing the country by national irrigation. If it is good policy for the United States government to spend hundred of millions on its rivers and harbors for the benefit of commerce and to loan ite credit to build the Pacific railroads and settle the west, as all concede It is, is it not equally good policy and business to loan the credit of the United States in order to create a supply of cheap food in the great west and enable these re gions to turn into the channels of trade and contribute to the wealth of the United States an amount so vast that it is impossible for the human mind to grasp it. If congress will authorize the issue of bonds to be applied to the irrigation of the arid lands in the west, the problem of cheap food for the mining and manufacturing population, of the western country will be solved. The cost of these 4>onds can be charged up and the reclaimed lands sold at a price which would reimburse the government many fold. How to Tell the Gennlne. The signature of E, W.
