M PRINCIPAL POINTS IN THE TESTIMONY OF " REAR ADMIRAL SCHLEY AND CAPTAIN CLARK. w Captain Clark of the Oregon-and Rear Admiral Schley were the witnesses w before the Naval Court of Inquiry yesterday. Captain Clark reviewed the battle w off Santiago and sustained the contentions of Admiral Schley's friends. in most w particulars. Captain Clark testified that' when he saw the Brooklyn first, after the fight commenced, that ship was .engaging the entire Spanish fleet. He told w ot the chase of the Colon, In which the Brooklyn and Oregon took the principal w part. He told of the signals made by the Brooklyn, and paid a high tribute to Schley's part In the battle. w Admiral Schley was on the witness stand all of the afternoon, and had not w reached the battle of July I when "the court adjourned for the day. He told of his earlier movements in the campaign. He related his Interview with Samp 4 son at Key West, and denied that he had ever spoken disrespectfully of the Admiral. He explained-his reasons for the retrograde movement and denied ab- solutely that he had used language Imputed to him by earlier witnesses. 4 He told of his orders for the fight off Santiago. He went Into some detail con w cernlng the attempts to coal off Santiago, and explained his reasons, based upon w reports maae to rum, tor not oeueving that the Spanish fleet was at Santiago. He declared that he had never had any knowledge of the Cuban shore signals w until explained to him by McCalla. and denied the receipt of the last message w from Admiral Sampson. In which It was positively stated that the Spanish were in the harbor of Santiago. THE SCHLEY INQUIRY. Continued From Page One. dore Schley had been told that "If satisfied they were not at Clenfuegos to proceed with all dispatch to Santiago." In this dispatch was Inclosed the McCalla memorandum.say lng that a good landing place could be se cured thirteen and a bait miles west of Clenfuego"). With regard to Commander Hood's testi mony concerning the delivery of these dis patcher, the Admiral said he did not re member, "and." he went on. "I think I can show you by a memorandum In the official Government report that If he had any verbal orders he forgot to report them." This memorandum had run to the effect that Hood had said: There are a good many officers here who do not believe the Span lards are there.' "That." said the Admiral, "goes to show that Hood was not very cer tain or that If he had the Information he did not deliver It to the Commander-in-Chief, which was an Indiscretion. He seems to have remembered a good deal that was said by me, but to have forgotten a good deal that he should have done." The witness also told of the arrival of the British ship Adula and of his having that vessel boarded and his allowing it to pro ceed inside. He also told of the report which the Adula brought, to the effect that the Spanish fleet had arrived at and later had left' Santiago, which he said "lent color to my own, belief at that time." DID KOT rjJfDERSTAND CUBAN SHORE SIGNALS. The wltness'stated that he had seen the signals on, shore and explained his experi ence In this respect. He said the surf was dangerous there In the daytime. Continuing.-'Admiral Schley said: "Not knowing Whether or not there were any insurgents 'to the west of the place: not having had communicated to me any Idea that there was a system of signals arranged with them. I asked the question, the withdrawal of the squadron of Captain McCalla and the failure of Lieutenant Sutherland to give me that information was directly responsi ble for the delay in communicating. To risk a boat through surf on a coast be lieved to be occupied by the enemy might have repeated Captain McCalla's experi ment. He found the coast was pretty well occupied. I saw cavalry on the coast once or twice. They appeared for a. moment and then got out of sight. I thought to waste ammunition on a solitary cavalryman was like wasting big guns on sparrows. I want ed to save all the ammunition we had for use against the enemy's squadron, which I knew to be somewhere in the vicinity. T did everything that was poslble dur ing the time that we were there to main tain a blockade as contemplated. I did all the coaling that was practicable or possi ble. With the later experiences of the war, atfer we got bold of colliers that were very much better fitted to resist a shock, as well aa to deliver this coal rapidly with that experience I might have coaled on days of worse weather. We had a great many accidents about which no mention has been made, because they came after the period of time. One of the colliers had to go to New York, absolutely smashed In. The Merrimac had several holes, punched through her, and my Impression now Is a portion of the upper works of the Sterling were injured in some way, but wo managed, with more experience, to do a little better than we did at first. There was always at Clenfuegos a rolling swell, and vessels with projecting sponsons or projecting guns were always in danger. I recollect In one case one of the six-pounder guns on the Brook lyn was bent at an angle of JO per cent by coming Into collision with one of these colliers. In other words, the problem pre sented to me at Clenfuegos," he said, "was one that had troubled the navies of the world throughout all time." XATB IBT HECKIVISO XeCALLA'S INFORMATION. He then spoke of the arrival of Captain McCalla on May 24. bringing information oonoeriung the shore signals from the Cuban insurgents. He said that when the Captain came aboard he asked, "Have you seen any signals?' "1 said, "What do you mean? He then asked If, I bad seen three lights at night and three horses in the daytime. "I said I had seen the lights, and he said: They are trying to communicate with yon. I expressed surprise, and asked who bad made the arrangements. McCalla re plied that he had done so. I asked why they had not been communicated to me, but that he did not know. I then tcld him to make a search of the shire, which he did, reporting that tho Spanish fleet were not there." This information, witness said, had been received about 4 p. m.. May M, and toward ( o'clock the squadron formed column end steamed toward Santiago. He said that the I'fTffl's made by the fleet were not made until the fleet was fourtsen miles 'from ClenfuegOB and could not have been eeen. He then retold the details of the voyage. "It was a dirty night." he said, "with a lowering sky. I remember that when I looked out at the porthole twenty feet above, the spray came in freely. Of course, this was not serious for big vessels, but It was for the smaller ones." He defended his course in keeping the vessels together holding the faster vessels for the slower. "We proceeded as a unit," he said, "and I hold that to do otherwise would be onmllltary and unwise. In chan ging base with a fleet. I hold that useful auxiliaries and supplies should never be abandoned except under the 'greatest necessity." Taking, up the coaling question, he said that it was absolutely Impossible to coal on Slav ss. "I watched the situation closely." be' said, "and "felt that, I was -more capable than any other man ot juaguig tne situa tion In that 'respect." On the 26th the weather was still rough, especially In the morning. He told also of sending Command er Southerland away with the Eagle, and said that it was done because Southerland had signaled that be was dangerously short of coal. He said that Southerland bad neither protested against leaving nor In sisted that he could coaL "He regretted the necessity, as I did, but It was Impracticable for him to coal. He might have taken on 'a little coal in boats, but he would have burnt it as fast as he took It on." Referring to his course in leaving Clen fuegos, he said it was laid so as to give htm the widest horison. "My course pro jected," he said, "would have carried me to China. If there had been no Islands In the way." He spoke of the necessity of acting upon his own responsibility of hav ing to act without having any private infor mation from Havana. "Therefore," he said, '1 bad to do a good deal from guesswork. Sometimes I was right and sometimes wrong." VnriP stECOLLTCCTION OF DTTEsVVTCW WITH.SIGSBEE. .Admiral Schley then told of meeting the dispatch boats St. Paul. Minneapolis, and Tale. He said at that time there was a heavy sea on. He remembered Captain Cook "saying to him, on the passage over, .that he had never seen more motion on the Brooklyn, and that some of 'the youngsters were seasick. "Captain Slgsbee came oo board," continued -the witness, "and I think' my recollection Is almost vivid enough to describe his dress. ber boots and an old blockading cap which we all wore more or less, a heavy blouso suit. I met him at the gangway. I was very glad to see him, as he was; of course, to see me. The first thing I asked Slgsb;e when he came over the side, and I want to say before I make this statement that I do not believe that Captain Slffsbee would misstate anything- for his comml.?ion. I do not believe that he Is capable of stating what is not true. I think in this instance his recollection Is at fault, and not his veracity. "I said to him: 'Captain, have you got the Dons In here?' He said: 'No; they are not In here. I have been In very close." He said: They are not here; they are only reported here.' I said to him: 'Have any of the other vessels seen them, the Yale or the Minne apolis?" He said: 'No; they have not; they have assured me so,' and that was tho as surance to which I referred, when I spoke of the asurance of such men as Wise and Jem ell and SJgsbee. "No. I do not believe that any of these men would misstate the fact. They did not communicate verbally with me. but I as sumed, from the conversation with Slgsbee. that be tabs bearing to me the assurance of all of them. At the same time, Nunez was aboard, and he and I had a conversa tion In Spanish. Among other things, 1 said: "Nunez, what do you think of the re port that these people are not here?" 'Well,' he said, 'I do not believe that they are here at all, because the channel is very narrow. The buoys have all also been removed. Wo have to make the turns very quickly, and the channel is very crooked. If they had a tug or a most favorable day, perfectly smooth weather. I do not say that they might not get In. but I do not believe they are there now." "He said ho had been piloting sixteen or eighteen years. Wo subsequently found ho was a very expert pilot, and rendered us valuable service. '"My habit of life, not only In principal command of a squadron, but also in com mand of a ship, was to assume the responsi bility and the danger of censure of any movement but I was never willing, under any circumstances, to be a participant In glories that I would not divide. That was the general principle upon which I acted In this matter. I did not call any council of war. Tho Information which these people gave me led me to Infer that the telegraphic Information was a ruse, similar to that which was telegraphed from Cadiz, that the squadron had returned to Cape Verde." Continuing, the Admiral said: "If any of us at any time made any mistakes during the campaign of Santiago, or elsewhere, it was In supposing that the Spaniards would ever do right at the right time." At this point Admiral Schley described the movements of his squadron about San-, tlago, saying that he had considered the move eastward to be unwise. It would not have been wise to uncover Santiago. He said their movements every minute of the day were known In Havana. "Just as we approached Santiago on the ZCtb, the collier Merrimac. which had been giving- us a good deal of trouble, broke down. I determined that an unmanageable collier was not' a very profitable thing to have with the squadron If we met the enemy, so I first determined to send her to Key West with the Yale. It then occurred to me that If I sent her to Key West and she was taken, we would be out a collier, and tho Spanish, If they were In, would be In bo much coal. So I determined, therefore, on this movement to the westward, in th meantime Inquiring as to the coal supply of each of these ships." SAMPSON'S DISPATCH WAS NEVER RECEIVED. Continuing his discussion of the coaling situation. Admiral Schley said 'that a liberal supply was necessary. The enemy would not come toward the Americana, but would go in the other direction. Speaking of the collier MerrlmaCs breaking down, he said this accident rendered coaling out of the question. "I don't, believe any prudent commander would have attempted to sen-l a ship alongside an unmovable collier to take coal. The risk would be too great. The re sponsibility was mine, and It was too great to take the chances. I coaled at the earliest possible moment." With reference to the arrival of the Har vard on the 27th. and his conference with Captain (now Admiral) Cotton, Admiral Schley said that he had never received the dispatch representing in positive terms the presence of the enemy at Santiago. "I never saw It," he said, with Intense earnestness. "I never saw it, and I am sure that Cotton never delivered It to me. If he had done so it would be among my papers, and It would have burnt Itself into my memory so that I never could have forgotten It." Admiral Schley also referred again' to his conversation with Captain McCalla, saying that McCalla did not testify to the whole conversation, and then discussed his dis patch to the Navy Department regarding the disobedience of orders. He said that as translated this message was essentially dif ferent from the dispatch as he had framed it. He contended that there had been no disobedience: that he had complied 'with or ders In returning to Santiago, and held that, the proper construction . of his dispatch would relieve him of this .charge. At this point the court adjourned. The morning session was devoted to re ceiving testimony from former wit nesses, who bad been recalled, and the testimony of Commander Harlow of the "Vixen. The part played by the Vixen in the blockade has been much discussed. Commander Harlow's testimony was clear and explicit. He testified -that the Vixen was close enough to shore at night, during the blockade off Santiago, to have detected the enemy's vessels had they attempted to escape. He described the part of the Vixen in the entire campaign, and stated that Commodore Schley, while he looked ill and worn, did not acnear to be nervous or ex cited. He also testified that the Vlzcaya , naa ailCJuyicu u, tva wo ofuwKijru. CLARK OF THE OREGON REVIEWS THE CAMPAIGN. Commander Harlow was succeeded. Just before the noon recess, by 'Captain C. E. Clark, who commanded the battleship Ore gon In the Spanlth-Amertcan naval cam paign. The large audience manifested signs of In terest as the Captain of the Oregon ap proached the witness stand. Admiral Dewey smiled as he walked around to the end of the table to administer the oath. Captain Clark at first spoke in an undertone and was two or three times requested to raise his voice. This he did as he progressed and was soon distinctly heard In the vicinity of the Court. At the request of Mr. Rayner he began a description of the battle of July 3, as follows: "When we discovered the Spanish ships coming out our fleet closed In at once to attack them, each ship being ordered to keep her head directly toward the harbor entrance. The Spaniards turned to the west ward, breaking through our line, or cross ing It. and our ships swung off the west ward In pursuit. Both sides opened fire promptly and fired rapidly. Dense smoke soon obscured the vessels, making It dif ficult to distinguish them. "The Oregon ran between the Iowa and Texas, and the next ships to the westward in our line, and soon after we sighted four Spanish ships ahead, apparently uninjured at the time. They had gained so much ground that I believed they had been successful In attempting to escape, but it was soon evident we were gaining at least on one. of them, which afterwards proved to bethe Maria Teresa, the flagship, and I thought we should bring her to close action, but might be exposed to the con centrated Are of all -the -ships. - "Jost.then the smoke lifted or broke away to inv , wna oisuoverea me jruo- lyn. Bne Ibe was wen forward ot our, port beam broadside to-tael.nemys-neet. Ber course was perhaps a little divergent "m ours, because the Oregon was attempting to draw up upon the Teresa. But the Brook lyn and Oregon maintained this relative po sition, bow and quarter, approximately, to the end of the battle, the Brooklyn steam ing straight ahead, as nearly as I p0"'" judce. and engaging any and all of the Spanish ships, the Oregon endeavoring to come to close action with the sternmost one, and when she was driven out of ac tion and pointed to the beach, and pushed on for the next one ahead, and so on until the entire fleet was driven ashore, burning or sinking." BROOKLYN SET SIKYALS "WHILE THE Fir.HT WAS ON. Mr. Rayner: "Did you get any signals from the Brooklyn on the day of the bat tler' "Yes. sir." "Can you recall what they were?" "Of my own knowledge and remembrance, the signals that Impressed themselves upon, me at the time were, "Follow the flag." 1 had this repeated to the vessels follow ing, thinking that they might rot see the Brooklyn, and might see iw. I remember another signal. "One of my compartments filled with water.' I recollect it. because Is D?rnlexpd me a littln I ir.ia fearful that the Brooklyn might have to haul out of action and run in shore, and I concluded tnai it zs given 10 me as a warmus. case she did haul out, that I would be pre pared to look out for the chase alone ana not to pay any attention to her. and that she would look out for herself. I also re member a signal, because I did not under stand It at first. The enemy".' ship appears to nave Been nuilt in It.UV to wnicn i lorn the signal officer to answer. 'She will end on the coast of Cuba." I also remember a signal." "Congratulations over the grand vic tory, and thanks for your splenaid assist ance." There were other s'gnals made. 1 have seen the list of them, but these are the ones I recollect that made any impres sion on me at the time. Of my own recol lection. I cannot recall any others." "What dlstaiice was It that you were en gaged in the chase of the Colon aftpr the Vlscaya ran ashore? How many miles do you suppose the Oregon and the Brooklyn ran In the chase of the Colon before she surrendered ?" 'I cannot tell you th-rt. I have heard the chart has limited the distance to a certain number of miles, and the speed of the ships has been called in question. I presume fifty or fifty-five miles." "Can ou tell me with how many ships the Brooklyn was engaged, when the smoke lifted nnd you saw her on her westward course?" ""She must have been engaged with all tour." , . . "Did you see the turn of the Brooklyn?" "No. sir. I never saw the Brooklyn, until I came out of the smoke." "How did the Brooklyn"s fire appear to you at that time?" "I remember nothing about that. I re member seeing her. It made a deep Im pression upon me to find her there, and I felt that we should mutually support and sustain each other. I felt that a batile ship was needed and that we were to be there together." "Did you see the Commodore on the cay or the battle of July ZV "Yes. sir.'" "Will you kindly state where and when you saw him?" ""After the New York came up. after the surrender of the Colon." BROOKLYN AND OREGON ORDERED ON A NEW CHASE. "Was any conversation held between you and the Commodore on board the New York?" "A Spanish battleship was reported by Captain Eaton of the Besolute. She- had arrived off Santiago, and I think he said he had been pusued by her. The Admiral did not seem to be Impressed by that. He seemed Incredulous, but I remarked that It must be Camara's fleet; that they had ar rived there to form a conjunction with Cervera's licet, but they had arrived too late. The Admiral did not assent. Flrally. he said: 'Well, Clark, you will have to go after that silp." and believing as I did that there was really a Spanish vessel there. I said: 'Admiral. In war we ought to over power an enemy if possible. Why could not the. Brooklyn go along?" He turned and said, "Certainly: Schley, you go also." 1 then felt that I had perhaps assumed too much In speaking to an Admiral, and. sug gesting that a Commodore also accompany me. I turned to the Commodore and said: 'Commodore, we have knocked out several vessels this morning. We can knock out another, can't we?" Ho said: "Certainly, wo can. Come on." He then started over the side, and I started after him for my boat on the other side. What Impressed me was his cheery manner of approving of iny l.av lng mentioned his going and that be had l o feeling against me for mentioning It cs a senior and was rather approving In his man ner." j Captain Clark's examlnatlon-ln-chlef oc cupied fifteen mlntues, and at ten nlnites of 1 o'clock Mr. llanna. began the cross-examination. iyi i ""Did you,'" he asked! as 'his first question 'seo tho Iowa during the earlier portion of the engagement?" "Yes." replied the witness, "I saw the Iowa standing In toward the entrance of the harbor, and her position was a little to westward of the Oregon's. At first she seemed to be steaming faster than we were, and I thought she was gaining ground, nnd would get in ahead of us. Then the smoke became so dense that I lost sight of her, but I could see the Spanish ships as they came out. Later. I saw her again so near that I was fearful that the two ships would col lide. Consequently, I gave the order, 'Hard to starboard' and cleared her. I never saw the Iowa again during the action." Responding to a request from Mr. Hsnna. Captain Clark described the manner 'a which the Spanish ships came out of the harbor. In response to another question tho witness said the order under which he closed in was a standing order, as was the order to attack at once In case the enemv appeared. "I remember," he said, "that I had a feeling of satisfaction at that time that there was a standing order to close In. because of a possibility of accident in exe cuting that movement." The witness also said. In responding to an other question from Mr. Hanna, that, while he had seen the Texas, he had not noticed which way she was heading, as It was his especial concern to clear her. Speakina- of the ranges used during the engagement, he said that they changed so rapidly he could not undertake to give them, and he at last told the officers to decide the range for themselves. BROOKLYN HAD ENGAGED FOUR SPANISH SHIPS. Captain Clark.was also questioned regard ing his etatement-in-chlef that the' Brook lyn had at one time during the engagement engaged four different vessels, and confirmed his previous testimony, saying that she was alongside all four of the enemy's ships, and. In response to a question from Mr. Hanna as to whether there were not other Ameri can vessels engaged at the same time, he replied: "The Oregon was firing as fast as she could with her bow guns." Proceeding with the description, he said that for some time after the Vlscaya went ashore, and when only the Colon was left of the enemy's vessels, the Oregon did not fire, and that when she did resume the work only the 13-Inch guns were used, with the exception of one or two shots from the 8-lnch guns in the forward turret, "Did you fire the lS-lnch gun In pursuance of a signal from the Brooklyn?". Mr. Hanna asked, and the witness replied: . "No; the lj-lnch guns were fired after a conference with officers on board the. Oregon.

"Not that I know of.

The writer closes his nccount of tho recep tion by referring to the flattering manner In which Vice President Cobb spoke of his application for the general commissioner ship of the Exposition in Italy. Slg. Nero says that In the event If his appointment he would organize In Naples In connection with the United States Consul and the Chamber of Commerce of that city a local committee for agriculture In general and for fisheries; In Genoa a committee for manufacturing and mining, and at Milan one for Industries In general, meantime lecturing and advertising. His Idea Is to establish the head office In Rome, where, he says, he would attend personally to thd Italo-Spanlsh fine and applied arts and music. The Committee on Liberal Arts mot yes terday afternoon nt the World's Fair gen eral offices, but lothlng of their delibera tions was made public WILDERNESS IS DISAPPEARING. The Lower Tract Will Be Cleared, Within Next Two Weeks. The forest glades of the Exposition site are robed In their supremest beauty. From the summit of the Art Palace eminence the eye may travel across the far reaches of the tree-speckled tract which is to be traversed by lagoons and boulevards be tween stately edifices of Renaissance archi tecture. In the quiet air the blows of the relentless ax come from a great distance to the west where the "Wilderness" Is going down day by day to mike space for the great Trans portation and Mines and Metallurgy build ings. One-quarter of a, mile Is strewn with low-laid monarchs of the woodland, and bare ground on which the sun has never heretofore shone In tho summer season Is now exposed. Tho opening that has been mado by the corps of choppers gives an un obstructed view of the west part of the main "picture," looking from the extreme western end of Art HilL Across this clear ing threads the River des Peres, which will be undisturbed In Its course, while concealed beneath the foundations of tho main build ings and the broad avenues radiating from the Art Palace and Its gardens. Next the attention of Director of Works Taylor will be directed to the trees stud ding the staked plain to the front of the Art. Palace site, where the grand basin, flanked by the main boulevard of the Expo sition, will be run In a straight line to tho monumental entrance, three-quarters of a mile away. Hundreds of trees in the path of this gigantic scheme must fall. In two weeks more they will have disappeared, nnd the tract between the base of Art Hill and the northern line of the site will be laid bare. When the ceremonial cf breaking ground for the Exposition Is held the throngs who will attend the Important event will walk over a denuded plain to the spot on Art Hill where two historic shovels will turn the first clods of earth. " Grading will begin on Art HUL Thousands of tons of earth must be moved from here to establish the symmetry ot landscape ef fect, which will form tho basis for tho genius cf the landscape architects. Portions of the front of the hill are to be cut down to form a more precipitous slope. In its natlvo state the hill has a gentle gradua tion toward the base, where tho head of the grand basin will lie. The top of the emi nence In the center, where the arcnea en trance of the peristyle will be surmounted by the dome, must be built up and the en tire crest of the hill shaped to form a truo arc Almost as soon as work begins on the hillside of the art eminence, excavations for the irrand basin and the lagoon system are to commence at the foot of the hill. The surveyors have established the lines to be followed by the contractors In digging the lagoons. When this work Is well under way something of the Idea of the main "Dleture" of the Exposition will begin to shape Itself In the Imaginations of visitors to the site. Almost simultaneous wun mo beginning of the grading and excavating Director ot Works Taylor says tnat np win commence the erection of the fence about tho site. Before this work Is complete a cordon of guards will have been drawn around the grounds to prevent the entrance of curiosity-seekers. The extrication of the stumps of trees that have been felled Is a part of tho con struction that Is scheduled to begin with the other work. Powerful machinery Is to be used to uproot these stumps. They will be drorged from their beds In the g.-ound and burned. Logs, which are suitable for the two great log structures projected by j Director of Works Taylor, will be pneu to one side for use later In tho woodland setting on the hills in tho background of the main "picture." Workshops will begin to dot the surface of the site when the con tractors are let looeo on the great area. A temporary hospital with a corps of at tendants will be established soon. HENRY C.
