Unless the Presidents condition should
become precarious which is not now ex
pected in view of the enjassraslng reports
from his bedside the Schley Court of En
quiry will meet at the Washington Navy
Ynrd at 1 oclock Thursday afternoon ac
cording to the terms of the prtcept and
then and there begin an investigation of
the conduct of Rear Admiral Schley dur
ing the Santiago campaign Should the
President die or his case become cxtrcme
ly grave the court will meet and adjourn
without taking up any business or open
ing up the case According to present In
dications however with the condition of
Mr McKlnlcy steadily improving and the
prospect of his recovery from the would
be assassins bullet there will be no de
lay on his account No one connected
with the Investigation is needeil at Buffa
lo and It is pointed out that no good
could be accomplished by a delay pro
vided the President continues to Improve
Admiral Dewey and Rear Admiral Ben
ham -were at the Navy Department yes
terday and had a conference regarding
certain details of the proceedings of the
court They also had a talk with Acting
Secretary Hackctt and Captain Lemly
the Judge advocate of the court One of
the results of their conference was a de
cision regarding the daily sessions of the
court There will be two sessions each
day one from 10 until noon then an ad
journment of an hour for luncheon and a
second sitting from 1 until 3 oclock
In accordance with the instructions of
the precept the court will meet at 1
oclock on Thursday and organize How
much progress will be made toward a
start on the first day will depend largely
upon what Is done in regard to Rear Ad
miral Howlson That Admiral Schley
will challenge him Is regarded as certain
He will set forth hN reasons for asking
that Admiral Howlson be relieved from
the court It Is thought that but a short
time will be required by the two remain
ing members to decide the question In
case they conclude that Admiral Howl
son should be excused from service some
delay will doubtless be occasioned while
the department obtains some one else as
the third member of the court It is said
that the department has in view some
one who will be eligible for service and
who will doubtless be accepted In case
Admiral Howlson is removed Admiral
Howlson had not reached the city at a
late hour last night but is expected to
arrive In Washington oday or tomorrow
morning at the latest
Whether cr not Admiral Sampson will
attend the court is a matter still ns un
settled as it has been since the court was
ordered The reports concerning his
coming are conflicting and until his
name is celled it will not be known
whether he will go upon the stand
The oflicials at the Navy Department
prcfess to have no communication from
Admiral Sampson concerning his attend
ance at the court At the close of office
hours yesterday no surgeons certificate
had been received at the department
making any report upon Sampsons con
It was stated yesterday at the Navy
Department by an authority regarded as
entirely reliable that Lieut Roy Camp
bell Smith a son-in-law of Rear Admiral
Sampson acted in the capacity of proof
reader for Historian Maclay and lhat he
read and edited personally every word in
the history bearing upon the West Indian
campaign the publication of which was
the immediate cause of the present Court
of Enquiry -
When asked about this Important de
velopment in the case last night Judge
Wilson one of the counsel for Admiral
Schley said that he had not yet learned
of the fact He was disposed to regard
the statement coming as it did from an
authoritative quarter as highly Impor
tant Just what bearing this will have on
the Court of Enquiry is not known al
though it will no doubt be brought out at
the forthcoming investigation
Judge Wilson last night started on a
hurried visit to New York on business
connected with the Court of Enquiry He
declined to comment on the nature of his
business there It is understood however
that Judge Wilson has left the city at
this time nn an important matter and
that the result of his trip is counted on as
being of considerable advantage to Ad
miral Schley It Is thought that he has
gone to see at least one of the witnesses
to be called before the court for testi
mony and his return is expected today
oinmander Schroeder Naval
Governor i m who was executive of
ficer of tl during the San
tiago cac -a arrived in Washington
and was at the Navy Department yester
day morning He was one of the first wit
nesses summoned home after the Court of
Enquiry was ordered His name appears
upon the list of witnesses to be called by
the Navy Department He saw the Act
ing Secretary of the Navy Mr Hackett
and then had a talk with Captain Lemly
tly judge advocate of the court
Lieutenant Commander W H Souther
land who is also a witness for the Navy
Department was in to see Captain Lemly
yesterday as was Lieut C H Har
low who has been here for several days
Lieutenant Harlows name is on botli
lists Lieut Edward McCauley who Is
a witness for Admiral Schley is In Wash
ington and regwtered at the department
Lieut Alex Sharpe Jr who was on the
Vixen during the Santiago campaign has
also arrived In response to a summons
from the Navy Department to appear be
fore the Court of Enquiry
dit F A Cook who commanded the
lirooklyn during the battle of Santiago
repeated yesterday to Admiral
Judge Wilson Captain Parker and Jlr
Rnyner the admirals counsel his story
of the West Indian campaign Judging
from the length of time consumed the
recital was an IntercKtlng one Admiral
Schley and his counsel were closeted in
the nnartments of Judge Wilson at the
Shorchum from 10 oclock in the morning I
until late in the afternoon going over the J
case The most important feature of the
question developed yesterday was this In
terview j
It Is understood that the story told by
the commanding oillccr of the Brooklyn
covered the entire campaign in the West
Indies The narrative was listened to at- i
tentatively by the attorneys who ques
tioned captain cook closely concerning
the important points in the campaign
Every detail however small was careful
ly weighed by the lawyers and Its proper
significance then considered The testi
mony of Captain Cook will be of the ut
most Importance ns he was in the thick
of the sea battle His knowledge of other
matters In connection with the campaign
it is understood will be of great value
to Admiral Schley
Lieut James S Sears Admiral Schleys
Jlag lieutenant during the West Indian
campaign was also present at the confer
ence at ihc hotel yesterday He too was
examined by the counsel for Admiral
Schley and it Is understood that his tes
timony before the Court of Enquiry will
be especially valuable The other otilcers
of the Brooklyn who were in the city
have left and will not return until their
testimony Is needed before the Court of
Capt Henry W Carpenter United
States Marine Corps was yesterday ap
pointed provost marshal of the court Ills
duties will be to preserve order and with
his assistant to look after the court
room and attend to the wants of members
of the court The convenience and ar
rangements Qt me courtroom nae uecn
practically completed in the new gun
ners workshop and while the room will
have no elaborate decorations it will be

The nine Treasury1 men representing
the baseball lenient In that department
were feeling chesty yesterday and had
raked together qaito u formidable team
to defeat the Postolllco nine but after
five innings of nip and tuck playing they
gathered in their sticks called In their
caddy and started home with another de
feat Jotted down in their lost column
The postmen who have beca playing ex
ceptionally good ball went out to admin
ister a shut out to the coin counters and
after the third inning they had what Is
known in baseball phraseology as a cinch
of the lead pipe variety They wleUcd
thc calcimine in great style and their
opponents were WJHloped without setting
foot on the counting block and barely
scarring the whitening on the third
The game was a pitchers battle all
through and had Davis the Treasurys
slab artist received better support the
mailmen would not have scored all their
live runs Klrg who occupied the centre
of the diamond for the men from the
great stone building on Pennsylvania
Avenue during Walkers absence ptched
a line game and had the money changers
completely at his mercy allowing but
three of them to get next to his delivery
for a base hit His support although a
trifle ragged in one inning was otherwise
perfect and this coupled with the ina
bility of the Fifteenth Street men to swat
the leather into unguarded territory gave
the postmen the game witnout any
very great effort on their part Hits wero
as scarce as hens teeth and In the case
of the Trcasuryites runs were not obtain
able under anv circumstances for try as
they might theycould not induce any of
their number to cjross the pan Five of
them came to the plate Intending to con
nect with one of Kintfs drops and assault
It for about three sacks but the twlrler
viewed the situation In an entirely differ
ent light and proceeded to toss over three
of his speediest and most elusive ones to
those who had any such notion The

The Senators turned their faces home
ward yesterday and after playing at
Chester Pa today on Wednesday will
commence the final series of the season
at the American Park The work of the
Manning players on the present trip over
the Western circuit has been much better
than any of the clubs most enthusiastic
admirers looked for Had the same rec
ord been made when the club first tackled
the Western teams on their own camp
ing grounds the Washingtons vould un
doubtedly be occupying a postion well up
among the leaders for It was the set back
encountered on the early trip that gave
the men the Idea that they were just
a bit out of their class and caused them
to play Irregular ball and with the con
tinuous dropping of games came the in
evitable lack of Interest on the part of
the local admirers of the sport- The game
put up by the Mannlngites during August
was a splendid sample of baseball and
succeeded in lifting the percentage com
fortably distant fiom the winners of the
booby prize The pitchers have rounded
to in excellent shape and almost any of
the corps with the possible exception of
Gear can lie relied upon to go In the box
and win out If given Jialf way decent sup
port in the tle ldlng and hitting depart
ments Gear has not yet come up to ex
pectations but the members of the club
announce that lie is proving to be a most
capable secretary of the Ball Players As
sotiation so what right has the public
to register any kick on the twirlers ef
forts If the locals continue the good
form that has so far characterized tnelr
work on the trip they will returnwell
ensconsed In sixth position and there is
a lighting chance that we may finally
wind up the season at the end of Sep
tember at the head of the second division
The club will have the decided advantage
of a series on the home grounds which
is always of Inestimable Value and with
tno pitcners uoing sucn goou worK anu
with the rcbt of the men hitting the ball
frequently and hard enough to cause any
innnsintr twirler in Indulce ill little snells

SEA GIRT Sept 9 The matches to
day on the Sea Girt rille range were spe
cial events arranged principally for the
betfefirof the Irlh ard Canadian
men who were prevented from entering
many of the individual matches last week
because they were not eligible thereto
Todays principal event was an all-comers
match with VH being up in prizes by
the National Rifle Association The match
Is to be hot in two stages at SCO 900 and
1000 yards the first of which was finished
late this afternoon Each contestant is
allowed ten shots at each range military
rides to have u handicap of eight points
There were many who objected to fhU
handicap declaring It wastoo small and
shouldbe at least twelve or fifteen points
The entrance fee was SI
This match attracted thirty three con
testants Lieut O M Allison shot so
poorly on the SC0 and 900 yard targets
that he decided to withdraw finding that
there was no possibility of getting within
the prizo money Frank Hyde the
f ran crack shot who is more than seventy
years old and -is better than many of the
younger ones did excellent work His
shooting at all of the three ranges
brought him close to the leader at the
finish of the days ivogramme
The match was conspicuous for one
thing and that was the splendid scores
made by the Irishmen It looks very
much at this time as If they would get
the bulk of the prize money although
the match is only one half over and a
dark horse may show up Hyde led all
the contestants when the shooting was
concluded on the 00 and 900 yard ranges
but he fell a tritie behind when the rifle
men moved back to 1000 yards Tile best

five more bottles of Favorite Prescription and
then I did not take any more for several weeks
as I felt so much better but still I was not com
