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
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
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
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
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

Mr. Hanna—All I want to find out la the

information. We do not need that.
Mr. Hanna then changed his question
and the witness said that he bad writ

quest from Admiral Schley. He contin

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
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:

of about 600 or 700 yards nearer the Spanish
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

been reduced.

by you to-day, was between you and Commo

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.

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

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-
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
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
(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.

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
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
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

Government Should Develop Arid
Districts by Irrigation.
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.

related the experiences of the pa
At 10:30 the morning service began. Bish
op Cranston preached the conference ser
mon. His text was Genesis i, xxvl. It
was a powerful vindication of the divine
government. In the afternoon the ordi

pell, Fred W. Hill and Jestus Parrish
were presented to the bishop 'by the sec
retary of the conference and were or
dained deacons. Ezra M. Cathcart, John

ordained elders by the bishop, assisted by
several elders.
The memorial service followed. Two

S. N. MoAdoo and Aaron Mattson. Both
of them were superannuates. Two preach
ers' wives have passed away this last
year, Mrs. Noah Lathrop and Mrs. J. G.
Morrison. The memory of the dead was
fittingly commemorated in written me

ren, who were intimately acquainted with
the departed.

delivered the missionary address. This
was fallowed toy an address 'by Mrs. Dr.
Esther Ilehi Bahsh, a native Hindoo wo
man who has been studying in this coun

Special to The Journal.
Brainerd, Minn., Oct. 7.—William Cos
son, of Beer Wood, a settlement near this
place, was arrested to-day by Sheriff
Lundquist of Goodhue county on a war
rant sworn out by the superintendent of

over night at a hotel.
Cossin Is a single man of about 30 years.
The girl is but 14 and has been living with
her mother, a widow.

ment has received a telegram from Con
sul General Barlow at Mexico City stat
ing that a decree has been issued by the

Alger'a Criticism*.
Washington, Oct. 7.—General Miles de
clines to make a reply to the criticisms
of General Alger and will not discuss the
passages in the latter's book which re
flect upon him. His friends heartily in
dorse his decision to treat the whole mat
ter as a closed incident and say that he
is taking the right course in not heeding
what they term "a voice from the grave."
They consider General Alger's retirement,
the punishment of General Eagan and
I General Miles' advancement by act of
congress to the grade of lieutenant gener
al as full vindication of the latter.
