a br^ef consultation between Captain
Lemly and Mr. Hahna, Captain Sigs*
bee was recalled. When he had taken
his seat Mr. Hanraa stated that the wit­
ness had been caiiled for the purpose
of securing such facts as he might be
possessed of that the court or counsel
might want to elicit from him.
lhis statement brought Mr. Ray*
ner to hfs feet with the question:
"You are calling Captain Sigsbee in
rebuttal, of course?"
Captain Lemly—'I don't call it re
buttaT, we calTetf' Captain Slgsbee be
cause bq is wanted to testify."
Apparently Mr. Rayner w^s Bur
prised. He said .*
"Have we the right after we have
closed the case to recall witnesses ex­
cept in rebuttal? That would lead to
an interminable case. The rule of law
is you,can rebut anything,'new that we
have brought out, but ^rou' cannot call
witnesses to sustain former state­
ments Obey have made. There is no
objection to a witness in rebuttal."
'Captain Lemly—''Counsel is wrong
When he says I closed the case. I did
not dose it. I simply said, 'We rest
here,' and I propose to call further wit­
nesses hereafter. I~am only going to
call such witnesses as the court thinks
Aecessary in order to have tlhe facts
before it."
He contended that this Is an inquiry
and not a prosecution and that tihe
usual rules of opening and closing of
rebuttal and smrreibuttal, followed in
ordinary courts of law, were not to be
followed in this case.
The cdtttroversy between counsel
corrtin'ued for some time. iftr. Hanna*
said Mr. Rayner bad promised to be
libera!-in rebutting testimony. In re
•plying Mr. Rayner said that his prom
iep had only applied to rebuttdng testi­
mony proper.5
Mr. Hanitft-then spoke on-the treat­
ment of tfce case, taking exception t^
the 'characterization of his and Cap­
tain- Lemly's conduct as a "prosecu­
tion." .V---
Replyfn#r Mr, Rayner said th$t tug

ferred to it as a "trial'' and had so
wneidered it, fje ajso refused to con­

Court Makes a Decision.
When the court convened after re-
cess Admiral Dewey announced the
decision of the court on themeetion of
rebutting testimony, holding that wit­
nesses may be called at any time or
recalled for ithe purpose of making
corrections of former testimony or ad­
dition .In th£ nature of corrections.
They cannot,
ft "V D1
reiterate for­
mer evidence.*"
Captain Lemly then continued hi?
exaimiqation of Captain Slgsbee in the
ligOit of the court's ruling.
Captain .Sigebee answered -as fol­
lows: "I have carefolly, since my
last tesimony, gone over all of mjr of­
ficial documents, "all my privaW' let
ters and t|ie records of the ^t. .Paul.
I have no correction to make in the
testimony then gave^-so far as It was
given,, excepting that said I could not
recolleci whether there were onft or
two assemblages of. commanding of­
ficers aboard the sihip off Santiago be­
fore the arrival of the flying squadron

were two visits, one must .have been
on boaTd-'the Yala My log shows
there were two assemblages^ both on
board 'the Harvard. That is the only
correction I desire to make."
Captain Lemly—"You will find.,"Chat
you are likewise privileged to njake
additions in the' patlfre corrections

"I desire Jto staite that I informed

The n«xt witness was Lieutenant

He said that when tfce Eagle met the

order, ''Helm hard aport."
Mr. Andersen was succeeded by Cap­
tain Joseph G. Eaton, who was in ctim
mamd of the Resolute during the San­
tiago campaign. His testimony re­
lated mainly to the chase of the Aus­
trian ship'Maria Teresa in the belief
that it was a SpanJfih- vessel on July
3 immediately after "he close of the
battle off Santiago. He expresfed the
opinion that at the beginning of the
battle of July 3 the fire of the Indiana
had been more effective than that of
others of the American vesesls.
Captain F. E. Chad wick ot the New
York was next called to testify con­
cerning the precautionary orders feiven
by the department concerning the
bombardment of shore batteries. He
recognized and identified tihe various
dispatches dn this subject, stating the
dates on which they were received.
He said the orders were not communi­
cated to Commodore Schley.
The court then adjourned for the

.Statement of the Foreign Office as to

Paris, Nov. 1.—The officials of the
French foreign office confirm the re­
port that a division of the French
Mediterranean fleet, composed of three
battleships and two cruisers, under
the command of Admiral Oaillard, has
proceeded irom Toulon to the Levant,
to make a naval demonstration against
A foreign office official, in communi­
cating the foregoing to the correspond­
ent here of the Associated Press, said:
"The squadron sailed with sealed
orders and proceeds first to a Greek
port, the Island of Syra, I think, where
the admiral will receive definite in­
structions as to carrying out his sealed
orders. I am not at liberty to say
what the sealed orders are, but the
seizure of the customs at Smyrna
probably would be a very effective
way of convincing the sultan that
France's patience is exhausted $nd
that we have, decided, to enforce an-iiii
medlate execution of tfee Turkish gov­
ernment's engagements, We, how­
ever, ar^yeory hopeful that the sultan
not compel us to-go to that ex­
"Our squadron will not reach the
Greek port before Sunday. The Turk­
ish government b&& thus still three
days' grace and we trust, in the mean­
time, to receive complete satisfaction.
We have acted ysry considerately to­
ward Turkey, hopipg up to the last
moment she would- carry out her en­
gagements, and it is only when we find
there is no serious indication of her
doing so that we have reluctantly re­
solved to put. stronger pressure to
bear in the shape of a naval demon­
stration. It is now two months since
the French ambassador, M. Constans,
left Constantinople. His departure
failed to produce the desired effect,
On the contrary, even the quays and
Tubini questions, which were settled
by the sultan's to-ailes, remain unsat­
isfied. The internal situation in -the
Turkish empire deterred us, tor some
time, from taking drastic measures to
enforce our demandf. But the dignity
of France could not permit the present
state Jt affairs to be prolonged in
definitely. TVe sineerely hope the sul­
tan will fujfly appreciate the fact thai
we cannot any longer be trifled with,
and relieve us -of taking further steps*
to safeguard our interests."
The official was asked what would
happen in the event of tha French
squadron being ordered to seise the
customs and the Turkish authorities
resisted, and he replied:
"That is a very unlikely contingency,
but if it occurs I suppose we shall
have tq,.bombard the port. We do niprt
want bloodshed and I do nibt believe
there will be any occasiop for it."

Constantinople, Nov. l.—A Mutin­
ous demonstration was mad# in jfront
of the admiralty offices Tuesday by
600 officers and non-commissioned
Bashibazouks, w4xioh has. caused dis­
may among the occupants of the
Yildiz palace. The pay of those who
took part in the demonstration is sev­
eral months in arrears and only a
promise of prompt settlement pre­
vented the carrying out of threats of
further action. The pay of all the
troops, with, the exception of the ma­
rines, are paid with fair regularity
because they furnish the guard at the

them might result in "serious conse­

a negro, charged with forcing Gran­
ville Ward, a 15-year-old boy, to com­

Turkey Will Resist Repayment of Miss
Stone's Ransom.
Constantinople, Nov. 1.—The Turk­
ish government is already preparing
to resist the anticipated demand of the
United States for repayment of the
ransom necessary to secure the re
lease of Miss Ellen M. Stone, the ab­
ducted American missionary. The
porte repudiates all responsibility for
the kidnapping of Miss Stone and
maintains that the United States has
no claim against Turkey, and that,
therefore, the latter is justified in re­
fusing to recoup the United States for
the money expended in her rescue.
A high Turkish official informed a
representative of the Associated Press
that the Turkish resistance of any
claims would be based upon the con­
First—That Miss Stone, although
warned of the dangers of the road,
persisted in traveling.
Second—That she did not notify the
authorities of her intention, in order
to obtain escort, which precaution
even the foreign consuls always take
when traveling In such outlying, in­
secure districts of the empire.
Third—That the brigands who kid­
napped Miss Stone and her companion
were Bulgariams, that the coup was
planned in Bulgaria and that sanctu­
ary was found in Bulgarian territory.
W. S. Isham Accuses General Buffing

Washington, Nov. 1. Charges
against General Buffington have been

Mr. Isham accuses the chief of the
department of ordnance of knowingly
making misstatements in his annual
report and certain officers of accepting
bribes. The subcommittee at the

the average German consumed the
equivalent of five glasses of spirits a

difficulty in the campaign was that
