ANARCHISTS GO FREE
Nino Men Arrested in Chicago on
Conspiracy Charge.
MO EVIDENCE TO HOLD THEM
Emma Goldman Wi!I Probably Be
Released Later.
TIIEY REFUSE A GUARD
CHICAGO, September ZX?The rlue an
archists who have been under arrest here
since the assassination of President McKin
ley were today given their freedom. Judge
Chetlain so ordering after the prosecution
had admitted that there was no legal evi
dence against them. Kmma Goldman was
not a party to the proceedings. Her case is
set for hearing tomorrow before Magis
trate Prindiville, where she, as well as the
nine men freed today, are charged with
conspiracy to murder lYesident McKinley.
The case in the lower court with reference
to the men is, of course, nullified by the
action of Judge Chetlain today. Miss Gold
man will also be set at liberty, as Justice
Prindiville has agreed to take such action
in her case as the upper court took in the
cases of the men. Attorney Brown said lie
would try to have Miss Goldman freed to
day.
When the hearing on the writ of habeas
corpus began before Judge Chetlain, Dr.
Taylor, the city prosecutor, declared that
he could no longer ask that the prisoners
be held.
>?? Evidence Aealnst Them.
"We have no legal evidence against
them." he said. "They were arrested at
the request of the Buffalo authorities, and
since their incarceration we have been in
constant touch with the eastern police. I
was informed this morning that Chief Bull
had no evidence against them, and I have
also been informed that there is no inten
tion of trying to get them into the state
of New York on extradition papers. We
are therefore willing that they be set at
liberty."
Attorney Geeting, for the relators, then
diMTi*n(l?d that in view of the gravity of
the offense which had been charged against
his clients that the prosecution be re
quired to state what cause, or what suspi
cion. weighed with the police in making
the /irrest.
Judge Chetlain said that in view of the
fact that the prosecution, representing both
the city and the state, as well as Buffalo,
by indirect >n. had agreed to the liberation
of the prisoners, and admitted that there
?was no evidence against them, that there
was no reason for further inquiry into the
matter.
OriKlnnl < linrure Mlndemeanor.
"When arrested the charge against the
relators was merely a misdemeanor, and
they were entitled to ball," the court said.
"The case was one of such moment, how
ever. that I felt justified in exercising all
discretion. The prisoners were therefore
remanded without bail for further hear
ing. pending an investigation by the police.
The President died from the assassin's bul
let and the prisoners this time were re
manded without bail at their own request,
to allow the/uUest investigation. Our duty
has been fully done, and now I have but to
order, ard do so order that the prisoners
be liberated."
The pifs oners had been silent, their faces |
expressions^.. , during the proceedings.
When the court ordered the jail doors
opened to them there was not a trace of
jubilation on their Taces.
The prisoners were led back to Jail,
where .they collected their belongings, J
chiefly magazines and newspapers, and [
then came downstairs, where they met
friends and members of their families. For
the first trme they Showed evidences of
pleasure. Capt. Revere of the police de
par tmer. offered them protection on the
way to their homes, but Abraham Tsaak,
the editor, of an-anarchist paper and look
ed upon .aa th? Jeader of local anarchists,
refused it.

named as conspirators with me did not con

XTEKL TRUST REORGANIZING.

ed toy the Strike.
PITTSBURG. Pa., September 23.?The
Tost says:
The reorganization of some of the con
stituent companies of the United States
Si eel Corporation, which waa begun soon
after President Charles M. Schwab took
hold of the greater company, Is to be car
ried on again as soon as matters have
quieted d..<vn from the strike. This was
stated hy one of the officials of the United
States St el Corporation, and it was also
said that one of the first moves to be made
will be the consolidation of the American
Sheet Steel Company and the American Tin
Plate Company.
Now that the strike is practically over
the steel officials are looking anxiously for
the renewal of the original plans. The con
solidation of the Carnegie company, the
American Steel Ih>op Company and the
National Steel Company under the man
agement of the Carnegie officials is taken
as the c >ming model for the other move
ments of this nature.
The business, according to the plans said
to have been decided up>n, will be conduct
ed by one ^et of officers. The plants will be
brought closer together and work more in
unison.
The nature of the material would make
such a move, it Is said, far more satisfac
tory and wuuld make possible also the
practice of greater economies in operation.

yet to bat.
THE BROOKLYN LOOP
(Continued from First Page.)
Brooklyn, that is. about the signals, and
also the way I thought the Brooklyn wa*
standing up to the attack, and I said ??*'
stood nicely. The captain said: 'Oh,
crackey; never mind the Brooklyn.. You
look out for this ship." The Brooklyn was
then about on our port beam, and 1 turned
mv back on it. and I said: "All right, cap
tain. I'll look at the Brooklyn no more. '
\fter going to the westward I suggested
we give the port helm to get closer in.
Right after he gave that helm he sang out
to the man at the wheel, or rather to the
man at the engine room Indicator, to slow
and then to stop. I said: "Captain, they
will all get away from us." He did not
answer me immediately. I said: "My lord,
captain, we are out of the light." He said.
"Look at the 3rooklyn." I turned around
and this b'g gray ship was looming out of
the smoke. 1 should say steaming. She
sheered ofT and went to sea, I should say,
about 3,000 yards, and then to the west
ward. As soon as the Brooklyn cleared us
we rang again to go ahead, and started up
forced draft again. After that we simply
followed on as fast as we could on the line
just inside the line the Oregon was taking.
Just before this turn of the Brooklyn the
Oregon and Iowa were both close to her on
our starboard side. We continued
chase until the Colon hauled down her flag,
when the captain gave orders to stop forced
draft, and in a few minutes, at the sug
gestion of some one, he started it again.
DUtanee Prom the Brooklyn.
Q. How near was the Brooklyn to the
Texas at the time when you saw her loom
up out of the smoke during the chase of the
Colon? A. I made no estimate at the
time, but I came to the conclusion later
that it was between 100 and 130 yards from
us, a much longer distance than Captain
Philip said.
Q. How was the Brooklyn heading as near
as you could see? A. She appeared to be
heading very close to the north.
Q. Had the Brooklyn given any steam
signal to indicate her change of course?
A. I did not hear any. I would not have
heard it.
The Time of Greatest Danger.
Q. At what time during the battle of San
tiago do you regard the Texas as having
been In the greatest danger?
Before the witness could reply to this
question counsel for Admiral Schley entered
an objection on the ground that the facts
were before the court and a reply to the
question would be merely giving the opin
ion of the witness. The judge advocate in
sisting upon the question, formal objection
was made, and It was argued on both
sides.
The court then retired and in a few min
utes returned. Admiral Dewey announcing
thai the objection was not sustained. The
question was then repeated and Captain
Heilner replied:
"Looking back upon it the time of the
greatest danger I know of was when the
Brooklyn loomed out Of the smoke right
ahead of us."
In reply to questions, the witness said
that Captain Philip was extremely capable
in handling a ship. No man had a quicker
eye.
Q. I understand when the Brooklyn loom
ed out of the smoke a signal to stop and
back was given. A. It was, and we backed.
Q. What time was lost in slowing up? A.
It took perhaps from two to three minutes
from the time we began to stop the ship
until it was started at full speed.
The witness said that the result of this
backing was the loss of about three miles
for the Texas in the chase after the Colon.
That fosfs' of time was due in part to a
fault in the forced draft, which did not get
started readily when the signal to go ahead
was given. If this difficulty in resuming
the forced draft a second time had not
been met the witness did not know what
the loss of time by seeing the Brooklyn
bearing on them would have been.
The Blockade Off Snntlaffo.
The witness was asked to describe the
blockade that had been maintained off San
tiago Immediately upon the arrival of the
fleet there from Cienfuegos. He said the
first blockade was perhaps five or six miles
off shore, and as they turned after making
the length "of their run bev6nd the harbor
the tHrn was off shore, so that they grad
ually Increased their distance ?rom the
mouth of the harbor. Whether any change
was made in this gradual increasing of dis
tance its time went to arrd-^s the v.esstls
were making the turns the witness could
not say. He could not say how far to the
east and west of the mouth of the harbor
the blockade extended, but officers of the
deck had told him that it varied. It was
dark during the first night, and even they
could not say what the distance was with
any degree of certainty. When they got off
Santiago the moon, he thought, was in its
first quarter, or perhsps the beginning of
the second quarter at the mid-watch. After
that It was dark.
In reply to a question as to the danger
of the vessels in the harbor "sneaking out"
during the blockade, he said, referring to
the period after the mid-watch:
"After that It was dark, and any dis
tance off they could have sneaked out."
The witness had read to him by Mr. Ray
ner a report by Admiral Schley, made after
arriving at Cienfuegos. stating that guns
were heard. lie said that neither he nor
any one on his ship with whom he had
talked had heard any guns fired at that
time, although they had been signaled
from the flagship that there were such
guns h**ard.
The witness was questioned in regard to
signals given after the fleet left Cienfue
gos for Santiago arranging for a meeting.
He declared that he had received a s ignal
saying the rendezvous would be twenty
five miles east of Santiago, which signal
Mr. Rayner declared could not be found in
the signal book.
SlKnalu on liny of Battle.
Commander Heilner had, he said, in re
sponse to Mr. Rayner'8 guestlons, seen the
Brooklyn make signals to the Texas on the
day of the battle.
Mr. Rayner?"What were they?"
"I do not know what they were. First, I
reported a one-flag hoist which I supposed
was 'clear ship fnr action." That was im
mediately after going on deck."
"How many of those signals do you rec
olleot being made to the Texas?"
"I saw that one. Then shortly after I
raw a second signal which was a three flag
hoist and that is the time I reported to
Captain Philip, he said, as I stated before,
that I was not to look after the Brooklyn
but the Texas."
"How many signals did the New York
make to the Texas on the day of battle?"
asked Mr. Rayner.
"I do not know," was the response.
"Did she make any signals to the Texas?"
"I saw signals from the New York, I
think, but not at 9 o'clock or 0:30."
"How late?"
"That I don't know. Twelve o'clock or
around there. It may have been half-past
twelve. I saw the signals In the chase of
tho Colon."
Objection was made to this line of ques
tion, ng. and the question was withdrawn
temporarily.
A recess was taken at 1 o'clock until 2
p.m.
Chart Admittedly Inaccurate.
The afternoon session of the court open
ed Immediately with sensational questions
and answers. Capt. Heilner was called to
the stand to resume his testimony. Mr.
Rayner called his attention to the appendix
and map issued by the board of navigators
October 8. 1898.
The witness said he had been one of the
board of navigators who had prepared the
chart. He testified that the Brooklyn was
only 150 yards distant when she crossed
the course of the Texas, but he atated that
according to the chart the distance was
about 1,M)0 feet when the Brooklyn was
making her famous loop.' '
"But." he said, "we are going through a
lot of matter here which is worthless."
"Oh! It is worthless, is it?" questioned
Mr. Rayner. "According to the map the
two vessels were never nearer than with
in 2.40U feet of each other."
The witness replied that he considered
the map Inaccurate.
Mr. Hanna interposed to say that if the
point Intended to be made was that the
chart is inaccurate the government would
concede at once that this was so.
Mr. Rayner exclaimed: "It is a great
pity you never did that before. This is a
government appendix and comes to ua
signed by government officials and with
the stamp of the government's approval.
It Is supposed to be tlv} only authentic map
to proceed on. and is understood as nearly
correct aS Is possible."
He went on to say that this Waa really a
vital point In the whole controversy and
that he would show that the Brooklyn waa
never within 2,4?)0 feet of the Texas, in
stead of 150 yards, as stated by the wltneea.
and that at no time was she in danger of
coining Into collision with her.
Capt. HHlner was asked to make an es
timate from the map that was before him
and which bore his signature of the distance
the Brooklyn would have been from th"
Texas on making the turn, estimating tlK
?peed of tha Brooklyn at sixteen Knots and
the Texas at twelve knots.
"According to that," said the witness,
"roughly speaking and according to this
chart, the Texas should have been just
half a mile from the Brooklyn, roughly
speaking."
Mr. Rayner?"Twenty-six hundred feet?"
"A little more than that?3,000 feet."
Mr. Rayner?"Then according to your
recollection they were one hundred and
fifty yards apart and according to this
chart 3.000 feet."
He said that estimating from this chart
and according to the speed given the
Brooklyn went one thousand yards, or half
a mile beyond the Texas out to sea.
The Allexed Lou In Time.
The witness explained, in reply to ques
tions by Mr. Rayner, that he did not mean
by his earlier testimony that the Texas lost
three miles In three minutes, but that the
delay Incident to seeing the Brooklyn loom
up before them put them behind three miles
from what they would have been otherwise.
Mr. Rayner questioned the witness in re
gard to whether there was anything in the
log of the Texas showing the signals to
slow down and back water. The witness
replied:
"Nothing. It was not on the log of the
Texas because Capt. Philip did not want it
there. I swore that I would not bring up
a dead man to substantiate anything I said,
but Capt. Philip would not put It in his
official report, and I am very sorry that
this matter has come up here. I hope I can
get some one to substantiate it."
The Sftcnali Near Clenfneaos.
Mr. Rayner started to read a magazine
artiole by Capt. Phillips regarding the sig
nals at Cienfuegos.
Assistant Judge Advocate Hanna object
ed to the introduction of any literature, as
he termed it.
Mr. Wileon spoke up and said that Ms
side had no literature, and that the litera
ture was all on the other side. Mr. Ray
ner did not read the article, but asked a
question regarding the time the witness
saw the signals at Cienfueg'os. He replied
that It was on the morning of the 22d.~and
that he did not know whether the signals
were made by the Spaniards or by the in
surgents.
Mr. Rayner asked him in detail about the
arrival of the Marblehead and the Eagle,
the Iowa and the Dupont, to know If he
knew anything about a communication be
ing given to Admiral Schley from the Mar
blehead regarding the signals.
Many questions were asked on this point,
but the witness said he knew nothing about
it. He told of the formation of the squad
ron and its departure from Cienfuegos
after dark on the morning of the 23d.
He was given the log of the Texas and
found that the signals had been seen first
on the morning of the 21st. Mr. Rayner
said, however, that his side had no knowl
edge of signals being seen until the 22d.
The witness, said, however, that this
could easily have been the case, as they
were near enough on the morning of the
21st to see them.
The Sail to Santiago.
The witness said that the weather during
the voyage from Cienfuegos to the rendez
vous twenty-five miles from Santiago was
moderate. There were freBh winds and the
sea was moderately rough practically until
they got to the rendezvous.
He knew that the Eagle retarded the
progress of the fleet on this voyage, and
he knew that on the retrograde movement
later the Merrimac broke down, but he did
not know the cause of It. r He thought
there was some trouble with the machin
ery. ? *
Asked If there were any picket boats Jn
side of the line at Cienfuegos he said he
was inclined to think the ? Dupont was
there.
1 *f t ("t *
Mr. Rayner's Contention. _
The Judge advocate having objected to a
question by Mr. Rayner, who asked the
witness In relation to the location, of the
New York on the day of the battle off San
tiago, Mr. Rayner proceeded to argue that
the time would come when It would be ab
solutely essential to establish this fact.
He did not propose to go Into personalities
nor to criticise Admiral Sampson so far as
his present Inclination was concerned, but
the time would come when It would be
necessary to institute comparison between
the blockade maintained by Admiral Schley
before Admiral Sampson's arrival and the
blockade maintained by Admiral Sampson
from June 1 until the time of the battle.
If it could be shown that so far as the
distances of the vessels were concerned
Admiral Schley maintained the same sort
of blockade as was maintained by Admiral
Sampson, then he could not be criticised
for the character of that blockade.

DETAILS W THE CONTRACT WORK
Plans for the Disposal of Sewage
Under the Authority of Congress.
OUTLET AT MAGAZINE POIKT
In his annual report, submitted to the
District Commissioners today, D. B. Mc
Comb, the superintendent of sewers, says
that In cleaning the sewers of the city dur
ing the past year the amount of street
detritus and sludge removed aggregated
11,723 cubic yards.
After reporting details of repairs, etc., it
is stated that the (fashing gates at the out
let end of Tiber sewer were operated
throughout the year with advantage to the
sewer." The large number of boats in the
canai prevents the improvement of its con
dition which would otherwise result from
the operations of the flushing gates.
The sewer in 14th street northwest be
tween R and S streets, aggregating 872
feet, was replaced under contract. Sewers
were constructed under contracts in Po
tomac Park between 2tith street and river,
and in 2t5th street between Water and D
streets; in ltKh street northwest between
Q and R streets; in S street northwest be
tween 14th and 15th streets; in 18th street
northwest between Q and Corcoran, and in
New Hampshire avenue between Corcoran
and Riggs-streets.
The main sewer in 16th street northwest
between K and L streets and in K street
?jv!?,'een l'r>th and 16th streets was ~ ??
by Contractor Adam McCandish, under can
tract, but was not completed.
Sabnrban Sewers.
Main sewers were constructed under oon
tracts in U street northwest between 1st
street and North Capitol street. in
Brandywlne street between 7th and 5th
streets, and in 5th street between Brandy
wine and Des Moines streets, in T street
between North Capitol and 1st streets,
charged to the appropriation for suburban
sewers, I960.
The sewer in the valley of Piney Branch
between 5th and Chesapeake and Piney
Branch road and Vermillion street was
constructed under contract.
Much work was performed under the ap
propriation for the "preparation of detail
ed plans and specifications for sewage dis
posal complete." The plan of sewage dis
posal contemplates the emptying of all the
District sewerage at Magazine Point, on
the east side of the Potomac, about midway
between this city and Alexandria. The
sewerage will be concentrated at the foot
of New Jersey avenue, where a pumping
station will be erected to. lift the refuse
and send it through syphons across the
Anacostla river and through the hills be
yond. The work accomplished in connec
tion with this system is detailed as follows:

Slphop* I'uder Anncoettla River.
Surveys ^nd borings for the crossing of
the AnacostM river have been made both
on the line laid down by the sewerage com
mission and- on a line about normal to the
proposed channel lines for the river. The
latter, Involving the extension of the out
fall sewer on-pile foundation to the estab
lished bulkhead line, will reduce the length
of the siphon line from 2,680 feet to 1,428
feet, and is.recommended. Plans have been
made for this line.
Outfall sewer?Surveys for this sewer, in
: eluding a large amount of detail topogra
phy, especially over the more rugged por

made. The topography has been mapped,
the map location made and the lines and
profiles run. In addition surveys of inter
secting streams and drainage have been

RECIPROCITY WITH CUBA
LOWPR RATES TO BE GIVES SIGAR
ANU TOBACCO.
fcr?jl? and Haefeinery to Be Favored
ia the Islaad's Tariff Schedule
Gen. Wood'* Qepartare.
General Wood, military governor of Cuba,
started back for Havana last night by way
of Tampa. Before leaving be said that he
hoped to be able to complete arrangements
b> which the government of the island
may be formally transferred to the Cubans
by the 1st of May. He said also that there
will be no change In the policy of the ad
ministration toward the Cubans, and that
President Roosevelt will continue the pol
icy Inaugurated by his predecessor.
Governor General Wood expects to return
to Washington In November and to bring
with him a deputation from the Cuban con
stitutional convention authorized to nego
tiate a reciprocity agreement by which the
principal products of Cuba may enter the
United States at a reduced rate, and that
many articles produced and manufactured
In the United States may be sent to Cuba
without paying the duty required of other
countries. Secretary Root some time ago
directed the preliminary arrangements to
be made for formulating such an agree
ment, and this has been done. Assurances
were given by President McKinley, when
the delegation from the Cuban convention
visited Washington, that every effort
would be made to bring about closer com
mercial relations between Cuba and the
United States, which were to take form in
a reciprocity agreement. It is found that
about 100 articles produced in the United
States, the most important of which are
cereals and machinery, will be included in
the agreement to receive reduced rates
upon entering Cuba. Sugar and tobacco
will be the principal items of Cuban pro
duction to be considered in the reciprocity
agreement.
General Wood has been urging early ac

may be benefited. He believes that it
will tend to a coiitii'iiiance ol goo? re
lations between the United States and Cuba
and will be of great benefit to the island.
His return in November is with the object
of having the reciprocity agreement sent
to Congress as soon as it assembles in
December. His determination to take
speedy action in this matter was made af
ter several conferences with President
Roosevelt.
In order to insure the protection of Cu
ban coffee planters agsinst the importation
of Brazilian coffee through the United
States and Porto Rico an order will be pro
mulgated by the War Department providing
a duty on coffee going into Cuba sufficient
to prevent such importations.
Senor Queoada, the special commissioner
from Cuba, accompanied by Senor Tamayo,
the secretary of state of Cuba under the
insular government, ar.d by Dr. Mirandk,
called upon Secretary Hay Saturday in the
Interests of reciprocity. They represented
that the present conditions in Cuba are
intolerable, and that unless the United
States is prepared to promptly make some
concessions in the reduction of duties on
the Cuban staples the financial ruin of the
island is inevitable. Realizing the delay
that would follow an attempt to frame and
ratify a reciprocity treaty to carry out
their designs, the Cuban delegates hoped to
induce the State Department to grant their
wishes through the medium of a modus
vJvendi, which shall remain in force until
Congress has had opportunity to act upon
a more formal convention.
CAUSE OF WELLINGTON'S IRE.
Late President Would Not Conform to
Hi* Vagaries.
Special Dispatch to The Evening Star.
CLEVELAND, Ohio, September 23?Sen
ator Hanna's attention was today called to
the rumor emanating from Chicago that he
would introduce a resolution into the Sen
ate next winter asking for the expulsion of
Senator Wellington of Maryland, and to
the additional claim that Senator Foraker
would do his utmost to have the resolution,
passed. * ~.t V
"This is not true," said Mr. Hanna. "I
do not think at t/his time that thought
should be paid to such matters as the ut
terance of Senator Wellington on the as
sassination of President McKinley. It is
not now the time for thoughts of revenge,
and there should be nothing at this time
injected into the sadness of the occasion.
The prevailing sentiment is too pure to be
spoiled by thoughts of revenge. Let that
come later.
"As soon as Congress convenes I ex
pect that Senator Wellington will be deny
ing that he ever said that he could say
nothing good of President McKinley, and
hence would say nothing at all. Even now
he is beginning to back water. As far as
the Senate is concerned, I hardly know
how they could expel him, even if they
wanted to do so."
Senator Hanna explained that the cause
for the antagonism of Wellington for the
late President was due to pique caused by
the refusal of the President to make an
appointment at the request of the Mary
land senator.
"Mr. Wellington." said Senator Hanna,
"recommended the appointment of a cer
tain young Maryland man to a consulship
or something of that klndi Just before
President McKinley announced the ap
pointment, Senator Wellington, who had
had a dispute with the young man's father,
withdrew the recommendation.
"The President, however, had announced
to the young man his intention of making
the appointment, and he kept his word,
despite the opposition of Senator Welling
ton. This was the cause of the antagon
ism of the Maryland senator for the late
President. I do not think there was any
other friction between them."

STRIKE RIOT IN KENTUCKY.
Governor Asked to Send Troops to
9fadisonville.
MADISONVILLE, Ky., September 23.?
The governor has been appealed to for
troops to hold in check the turbulent coal
mine strikers. As the result of an armed
attack by a squad of strikers today, Judge
J. Nunn has wired Governor Beckham as
follows:
"It is my opinion that troops are. needed
here at once to preserve the peace."
At an early hour this morning the strikers
opened fire on Relnecke mines from a
grove 500 yards off, and gradually come
nearer. One squad of twenty-five or thirty
strikers stood within fifty yards of the
main road and peppered the street, making
it so warm for the guard, who was patroll
ing In front of a row of miners' houses,
that he beat a hasty retreat. The house
nearest the strikers was riddled with bul
lets. The resistance this morning by the
strikers was the most determined yet of
fered. Judge Nunn was called to- his of
fice, and the situation explained to him,
and he immediately sent the above tele

Will Re^ocanr lit* WMhlngtai Home
Before Lonir.
Re^r Auaiical Sumps a a has requested the
Navy Department to relieve him of his
present duty as commandant of the Boston
navy yard on October i. on account of the
bad state of his health. Secretary Lonx
has, of course, granted the request.
Admiral Sampson retires by age limit
February 9, IVklcJ. He could retire before
that if he wished to. under the forty years'
service clause ou his own request, or he
could apply for retirement, to take effect
immediately, on account of his poor health.
But as naval officers generally take a cer
tain pride in serving out their full term, it
is probable that an extended leave of ab
sence will keep Admiral Sampson on the
active list until the !)th of February. Rear
Admiral Mortimer I*. Johnson, comman
dant of the Port Royal naval station, will
assume command of the Boston yard Octo
ber 1.
Admiral Sampson returned to the Boston
navy yard Saturday with Mrs. Sampson
from a long visit to Lake Sunapee, New
Hampshire. The admiral has arranged to
leave Boston tod.iy for Fort Hamilton. New
York, to visit Lieut. H. H. Scott. United
States army, and Mrs. Scott. The latter is
his daughter. It is not likely that the ad
miral will remain at Fort Hamilton more
w111!.? week or two. He will then come to
Washington and reoccupy his old home. on.
New Hampshire avenue near R street. It
is said that Mrs. Sampson will remain at
Boston until the middle of the week, ar
ranging for the transfer of their personal
effects to the family residence in Wash
insrton.
It is not yet determined whether it will
be necessary to have Admiral Sampson ap
pear before the Schley court of inquiry
wing to his ill-health there is a general
disposition to excuse him from testifying
if it can possibly be avoided.

Amalgamated Copper Was Hammer*
ed Again Today.
L08T OVER SII POINTS
General List Weak in Sympathy
With That Stock
GENERAL. MARKET REPORT*
Special Dit(>atch to The Evening Star.
NEW YORK, September 23.?In London
the observance of the Jewish holiday. Yom
Kippur, materially lightened the attend
ance In the stock exchange. In the American
railway department the trading was ex
tremely dull and prices showed some irreg
ularity over the closing here Saturday.
The steel shares in that market were
steady, while Atchison cammon was up
above our parity.
In the local stock market the two partic
ular features at the opening were Manhat
tan Elevated R;ulway and Amalgamated
Copper stocks. TTie former Fto'ck quickly
gained over a point on heavy purchases,
supposed to be the continuation of the or
ganized buying so conspicuous in Kriday
and Saturday's trading of last week.
One broker took lt>.?.*k) shares of this
specialty in the first half hour's business
today, and his buying was ascribed to tho
Gould interests. In Amalgamated Cooper
the opening figures showed a loss of \ per
cent, compared with Saturday's closing,
and quickly sagged i.'1* points more .j:; in
verse trade reports ami ~ie oelief that
foreign an<^ uomestic copper companies
were underselling the Amalgamated Com
pany, notwithstanding the general theory
that the Amalgamated is committed to tho
keeping up of the price of the metal.
, This trade opposition^ together with tha
j pending litigation in the Courts, against
the absorption of some of the largest cop
per companies by the Amalgamated com
pany, caused heavy realizing sales by hold
ers of the stock.
The general list on account of the Ir
regular movements of the above named
stocks was inclined to irregularity, with a
tendency possibly in the majority of the
active issues toward reaction.
Union Pacific and Southern Pacific, how
ever, maintained their strength fairly well
in the first hour. The former, though. 1t
was noticed, met with long stock where
there was any considerable quantities bid
for. St. Paul did not hold so well In the
early trading. It lost \ per cent soon after
the opening and 1 per cent more after the
first hour.
Toward T2 o'clock the general list be
came reactionary, and losses were scored
of from to l^fc per cent in the active
issues.
Sugar refining stock sold ex-rlghts today,
and from the way the stock opened It
would appear that traders considered the
rights worth 0% per cent. The trading in
It was not brisk.
In the early afternoon Amalgamated Cop
per continued to be the prominent feature
in the speculation. Heavy realizing sales
in it were still in evidence, notwithstand
ing its loss of G points from the opening
price and the weakness In this specialty
finally made Its effect felt upon the rest
of the market, which became heavy and
Ic.wer with good selling discernible in the
Granger and'Pacific shares.
London; too, was a setler to the extent
of about( 15.U00 shares.
Metropolitan Itiliway and Brooklyn
Rapid Transit did not share to any extent
in the strength before noted in Man hat run,
nor did the transactions In them appear
he.irv. ?
There was no especial pressure In the
steel issues, and both classes of the I'nlted
States Steel stocks held'Comparatively well,
considering the weakness elsewhere in the
market. ? '
Some attempt was made to advance
Southern Pacific in the early trading on
account of-the meeting of the directors of
that company on Wednesday next, but It
was learned definitely later in the day
that no important developments are in
contemplation at this meeting, and the
stock reacted with the general tendency of
speculation.
In the late trading some efforts were mads
to rally the list, but only a fractional one
occurred. Amalgamated Copper after sell
ing off to ?a loss of 91? points from the
highest today?enjoyed a1 little spurt to 1)4,
on covering by. room traders, to take profits.
The weakness-tn-fhHr fpfcialty has demor
alized the general list, and It would not be
surprising if a lower range of prices prevail
for a few days at least." ?
