Mr Potts told of the coaling of the
Massachusetts at sea She received her
coal from May 39 when she left Key
West to Juls 3 from collier Then Cap
tain Lerals asked a question that aroused
great interest
Krcnll Excited
T ask sou what was the bearing and
manner of Commodore Schley during the
engagement with the Colon oa Mas SIT
he said
Mr Potts answered slowly and dellber
attlj His bearing and manner were
those of a man who was suffering under
extreme mental excitement of one who
had a disagreeable duts to perform and
was performing it reluctantly and tried
to get through with It as soon as he
could
Thats all sir said Captain Lemls
Mr Ravners cross examination oegan
with Mr Potts last answer He read to
the witness the testimony of the com
mander of the Massachusetts Admiral
lllgglnson that Schles s bearing ard
manner were those of a commander-in-chief
iou differ then from Captain
Higglnson that Commodore Schles s
manner was that of a commander-in-chief
suggested Mr Rajner
Ye s 1 have given ms Impression said
Mr Potts
Didn t Captain Higglnson have as good
an opportunity to see him as sou did 1
No not as well as 1 did because Cap
tain Higglnson wai Inside the conning
tower pnd 1 was outside
What do sou mean by saving that 1
Commodore Schlej showed signs of mtn
tal anxletj
The first that 1 otserved was his
parent anxiety to gel Into the conning
tower then his remark while 2 ta tiding on 1
the turret that we were consricuous ob- I
Jects observation of Commodore
Schlev previous to that occasion had been 1
so different that 1 was Impressed with
the change in his manner
Hav e j ou ev er been under ans mental
strain In time of battle
Ive been scared said the witness I
and the audience giggled
Have sou ans cthT facts to show that
Commodore Scfcley was suffering under
a mental strain
les A hen he came abroad the 1
Massachusetts Commodore Schles sid
he was going in to destroy the Colon
The Colon was not destrosed When
me engagement was itnisned he said it
was a rcoonnoisance
Mr TiasTier asked the witness If lhe
fact that orders had been issued b the J
Navy Department that ships muEt not be
vxpvea 10 nore naileries were Known 1
to him he would still maintain that
Schles were not right In not
pressing the bombardment but Captain
Lemlv objected to bringing in reference
to this order unless Commodore Schley
could be connected with It After some I
argument Captain Lemly said had no
objection to the presentation of this or-
dr In evidence if It were accompanied
by the orders modifying it Mr Rajner
protested that Commodore Schley did not
krow of these additional orders
The Court retired and upon returning
Admiral Denes announced that the first
erder would be admitted
Concerning the Clenfuegos blockade Mr I
Potts said that Schles s ships wrc much I
farther out at night than In the day They
were about four miles on shore In the
das I should sav he said that we
moved out four or five miles durng the
night j
Bejond the distance maintained during j
KtiK
Yes beyond the distance during the
das making tight or nine miles off shore
at night
Itonicli for Mnull Vnnc 1k
Of the progress of the FTjIng Squadron
fom Clenfuegos Mr Potts said hat on
the Sth of May there was dirty weather
tquallj and rainy with a short and lumps
sea It was rough for small vessels Con
cerning the night blockade at Santiago
the witness confirmed the statements of
Lieutenant Bristol that the blockading
ships in patrolling did go west of Ca
banasmore than a mile west and that
thes went about the same distance east
of Aguadores He said he was quite cer
tain of this despite the statement of Cap
tain Tolger that Cabanas and Aquadores
were the limits of the blockade
Coming back to the firing on the Colon
the witness was asked who else was with
Commodore Schley when he made the re
mark that thes were conspicuous objects
pii x uiis auswereu mat ciommnncler
Schroeder the executive ninrrr f tiie
Massachusetts and Lieutenants Sears and
Wells of Commodore Schleys staff were
there He did not see Commodore Schles
go into the conning tower he said In the
opinion of the witness the batteries at
Santiago were so weak that the- w re
no menace to armored ships and such ves
sels could have safely passed within range
of the batteries
The Court then asked some questions
With their answers they follov
Q Did you determine the positions of
the Massachusetts on the mornings of the
ath Sth 3Mh and 31st of May or either
of them
A I did
Q W hat was the direction of the pre
vailing wind em the south of Cuba during
the month of May
A llasterlj
Lieut Kdward P Lelper who served on
the New Orleans In the Spanish war
told of the blockade off Santiago and the
tiring at the Colon When the Massachus
etts lowa and New Orleans began to
steam Jn to fire at the Colon on Mav 31
they were between eight and nine miles
to the west of the Morro The usual
blockading position was from six to nine
miles dlrectlj off shore but tome of them
were farther than that from the shore
The first shot from the Massachusetts
which the witness saw did not reach the
mouth of the harbor and the Colon was
1509 or 13W sards in from the mouth
The range had been given us TuM sards
but the witness set the sights of the alx
lnclsgun for 75J0 metres or about SJ0
janjs He fired his first shot at that
rangK but that like all others fell short
All shots were tired at the Colon W ac
corincv with a signal from the flagship

DOUBTERS

If there Is any doubt about miking
brain power by the Use of certain fowl
the doubter should make the following ex
periment
Helen Frances Huntington of Gi Ines
vllle Ga sass Just a word of com
mendation concerning Gripe Nuts which
I Inve found to lie the most wholesome
nourishing and appetizing food that has
ever come to my knowledge
I am not a dsspeptlc but being con
stantly engaged In severe brain work I
found that I did not thrive on ordlnars
diet even a moderate dinner dulled my
brain so as to toe practically Incaptble of
critical work I tried meat Juice pepto
nolds the two meal ssstem of light break
fast and no supper which brought on
nervous elepetlnn and sleeplessness so I
reported to onennd another of the various
health foods which all seemed alike taste
less and valueless ax fi brain food until
quite by ehance I had a dish of Grape
Nuts feiod served as a dessert I liked It
so well that 1 liegin to use it dilly for
suppr four tensiKionfiils In a saucer of
hot milk eaten before It dissolves to
mushine
This point should be remembered as
after a eertaln tlm evaporation seems to
affect the sweet nutty flavor of the food
as In the case of certain flne llav ored
fruits
The result In my case was M npIy as
tonishing I had no desire what ver for
sweet pastrss meats or In fact ans thing
else nnd ms brain was as elear and ac
tive at night as on awaking from a lonj
refreshing sleep
The peculiar advantage about Grape
Nuts food Is that It supplies the nutritive
quellties of a varied diet without tho bad
results of heavy eating I cheerfully rec
ommend its use to all brain workers if
not as un exclusive diet certainly for th
last meal of the day I alnass take It
with me when traveling which save s a
deal of annosance and discomfort
THE TJMES WASHINGTON THURSDAY OOTOBBIl 10 1901
wrought his greatest work and achieved
his greatest results
We luve a right to expect that Con
gress remembering President MclCinless
deep jersonal interest In the National
Mcmorltl Bridge which he aptly termed
a morument to American pitriotlsm
will hniten at the toinlng session to pro
vldo for Its construction in tribute to his
memors on beh ilf of the National Gov
ernment But there should be besides
this a monumental structure to be
erected here In the National Capital by
th subscriptions largo and small of
the people nt large
Tills it seems to me should take the
form of a memorial orch of size and
character befitting its purpose It seems
to me also that this arch should be con
structed over the Washlnrton approach
to tho Memorial Bridge Such a project
will appeal strongty I believe to all the
citizens of the Republic We of the Na
tlcntl Capital the official home of the
ate President who knew him and there
fore loved him will be Justified by the
rest of the countrs In taking steps to or
ganize the general purpose and giving It
fitting direction and Impetus We shall
doubtless do so tonight In a was that
will prove our own Interest ahd worthily
set before others a rflrfn for adequately
representing tei the ages to come the
honor and glors of William McKinley

Veternns Cettiiierntloii lromlNed
There is vers little I can say to sou of
Infnest other than to promise the hearty
co operation of the Grand Arms of the
Itepublic in sour efforts to have the
Memorial Bridge spanning tho historic
Potomac from the Capital to Arlington
where so mans of emr comrades and the
nations dead lie buried promptly con
structeel It Is a long neglected dues and
one In which our departe el comrade
President McKinley had a deep interest
and now that he has passed away In sjch
a tragic manner tho cftort to make the
bridge a memorial to him is one in which
everv patriotic American should Join
lhat the proposition to associate Pres
ident McKlnles a name and tame with
this enterprise is so generously responded
to by the people of the South Is a source
of much gratification to those for whom
1 speak pirtlcularls I believe it will be
the enduring ink which will bind the
North and tle South together in the
bords of mutual fellowship and thus ce
ment the two sections with a memorial
erected bv the people to the man who
was an Anerican In overs sense of the
word patriotic enough to realize that the
time had come to cast Into oblivion the
bitterness of the past and say henceforth
we are onls citizens of a common coun
trs proud of her destiny and united in
her future under one1 flag and that tho
Starrs banner of our f orcf athers
I am leads as the Commander of the

The address on behalf of the Grand

similar tribute to the memors of Presi

acting commander of the Confederate
Veteians Ass lation vrho also promised
the suppo t o his organization to the

Mr Callaghan said
Cunfeilernlr Veterans Tribute
I on i half of the Confederate
Veterans that there Is no One more reads
than thes vo ad ince this noble and grand
project Lrt the work go forward and
when the wo k Is done blazon on the
northew approach the great names Lin
coln Grant und ilcKlnles and let us
put upon the epposite side the names of
Lee Jackson and our other leaders I
think It a proper and commendable pro
ject and believe that It will meet with
approbation throughout the country- 1 am
sure that Confederate veterans will re
gard It with the greatest favor and espe
cially those who heard President McKln
les speak at Macon saying that it was
time to take care of those of the Southern
side who fell under the other Hag
What did he doT He had an appro
priation of fcGOO1 passed by Congress
and had the remains of those of the
Southern cause removed from where thes
fell near Washington He had the sacred
remains removed to n spot where wo
shall have our own hallowed dead en
shrined I think that the Confederate
soldier will sav amen to this undertak
ing and contribute his little mite how
ever small It mar ue
Congress no doubt will make appro
priation for the spanning of the noble Po
tomac and the people of the whole coun
try will rise and qo opcrate In the great
and glorious work of honoring the na
tions sacred dead
The Sons of Veterans also paid their
tribute through C A Davis Adjutant
hat car be more in harmony with
the life of the beloved President than
that we shouil jLhus honor bs memorial
arch the memi i of William McKinlej
soldier in the civl war who was greit
enough to realize when the strife wat
over and that the time for reconcilia
tion hHd come He extended the hand
of good fellowship to his Southern broth
er and said to them let us now be breth
ren and stand shoulder to shoulder
against the nations of the world The
sons of Union soldiers are heartils with
sou and will support this project in all
that it means
Leo M Lipscomb Corps Commander of
the Spanish War Veterans added his
word of encouragement on behalf of the
veterans of the late war with Spain
We pledge mid he our hearty sup
port In the erection of this monument to
our lite beneel President It is certain
that the veterans of tho Spanish war will
undertake this work with the same read
iness with which they responded to the
call of President McKnles at the out
break of the war
Provide a beautiful arch exemplify
ing the union of the North and South
It is not true that the Spanish American
war reunited the two sections The
North and South were united thirty sears
ngo The Spanish war did not make us
a united neonle for we were that al
readj The war with Spain mercls taught
the world forts which we already knew
The speaker was followed bs John Jos
IMson President of the Board of Trade
who assured of the support of that or
ganization In the undertaking It Is not
a debating qustion said he whether
or not a memorial arch Is to be erected
at the National Capital That question
Is set In the minds of all people for
It Is appro lite that such a monument
should h bullded at the home of the
Union At Canton undoubtedly a great
museuleum will be erected bs the people
while at Washington will be a perpetual
granite to his memory the gift of the
whole people to his sacred memors
I shall work for It as shall every
member of the Board of Trado and evers
citizen I want to assure the citizens of
Washington that we will do nil in our
power to support this undertaking
Milch II Dyrentorth President of the
Business Mens Association stioke brieMs
on behalf of the organization giving
assurance of Its hearty co operation In
the work He was followed by Senator
Joseph E Hawley of Connecticut a life
long friend of President McKlnles
tyeniitfir Invvles nnthunlntlc
President McKlnles I am believing
more nnd more every day was the great
est man the world has ever known said
the Senator I knew him for a long
series of years when we were In the
House together and I hae seen lilm
grow In grace and honor Ills death was
a loss but a gain to the nation It was
a benediction and the nation rose up and
evers man threw his arms about the
neek of his neighbor in ev ers relation
of life he was perfect He worked his
was up without vanlts from a humble
position to the gnat place he occupied
In the world As time passes he will be
known as one of the greatest of mm
As chairman of the Committee on Mili
tary Affairs during the war with Spain
I had occasion to meet him often One
significant thing which Impressed me
many times was that I never saw an un
kind expression upon his face nor e in
that be said of many Presidents nl
thouh mans were great and good men
Illi expression was borrowed from di
vinity We worship him
1 ssmpathlze with the project to com
memorate his life In this arch It must
be grand it must be beautiful It inust lie
costls 1 will do the best I can for the
very best thing that can be Imagined
Commissioner Macfarland then read the
following resolution offered by Mr Ilon
Whereas It has been demonstrated to
night that there Is a strong hentiment In
behalf of erecting at the National Cap
ital by popul ir subscription n memorial
to our belovcsl Jepartcd President Wll
lium McKinley nnd that the same should
be air arch at or near the eastern ap
proach of the National Memorial Bridge

Resolved lhat we do organize the Wil

Reaolved Thit the chairman of this
meeting name a committee of eleven for
the purpose of selecting oilicers and com

of perfecting the organization of the as

of the committee Commissioner Micfar
land introduced the Rev T DeWltt Tal
mage formerly Dastor of the First Prcs
bsterlan Church of this city who deliv
ered a most eloquent address
The violent paroxjsm of the taking off
of the President he said has devel
oped into a calm from which has grown
the question What best can be done to
perpetuate his memors The poets will
praise the sculptor will make Immortal
his form in marble ibut in the hearts of
his countrjmen shall his greatest fame be
kept bright and clear
In the great cits founced by him and
bearing his name rises the tall marble
shaft of a nations mounlng but this
momument which shall commemorate the
life of William McKinley Is to be an arch
Gods favorite form tho figure of the
rainbow of promise beautiful and grace
ful - -
As It has done flll that It tan for
Washington In tile erectlon of the marble
pillar In memory of the First President I
nm glad that thtr design chosen for
is an arch the arm of the nations
affection It shall be honored for thou
sands of years by generations and gener
ations
It will not be llko the arch commemor
ating the victors of Napoleon at Auster
litz for that wns followed bs defeat It
will not be like that of Titus nor of Janus
the heathen It will b the arch of a pure
anJ hols life the arch of the triumph of
victories from mother knee to the Presi
dency It is In his honor that the arch Is
to be erected
His humanity was broad broader than
nil creeds and all religions will unite in
the building of this testimonial of the
love of a nation In grief He did not be
lieve that there is but one gate Into
heaven but that there were mans and
he held the doctrine that the right to his
religion m tilled vour right to yours All
religions are on the platform tonight the
run lies uown witn ine lamo inu me
lamb cannot be distinguished from the
lion
I think that the greatest characteristic
of the man as 1 knew him thlrts sears
ago at Canton the characteristic which
Impressed me most was love love of wife
love of children love of country love of
God Why Is it that so many bell tolled
out upon that day of his obsequies und
that trade and traffic were at a stand
stll The love which others bore him
I am glad he lived long enough to com
plete the work of malting forever the
lnlted States a world power among tho
nations of the world That is what he has
done When It shall demand that the
Turkish Government atone for the kid
napping of the American missionary I
shall look to see an American warship In
the D -dandles demanding her return
nnd asking for satisfaction W llllam Mc
Kinlej has helped to make us this world
pow er
The arch which shall be built will be
hullt on public properts It shall be my
arch sour arch It shall belong to everj
man woman and child In the country
Trom the coast cf Maine to tho Gulf of
Mexico nnd from the Golden Gate to tho
Florida Kejs there shall be a closer
union a deeper and more holy sentiment
as a result of the death of this man
That was his greatest work He
brought together the North and the
South He said Peace to all the boys
who fell In battle blue or If a
mother went out and found her two sons
wounded In a struggle would she stop to
blame the one or the other No she
would nut one arm about one and the
other arm about the other and kiss them
both 8a I would that In the springtime
we put our arms about them both and
give them caresses of love
The Sculptors Tnslc
It Is but natural that the earthly
mausoleum of McKinley should be built
at Canton but Just as appropriate that
at the Capital there should be some
grand commemortvtlon Here It was he
did his work here It was he attained his
greatest fame 1 thlpk he expected to be
remembered bj the people in this way
We have a haWt of denouncing public
men while they live and of making
amends by Llg funerals after death but
this is no atonement li any especial
sculptorlng should be placed upon the
arch one Is William McKinley as Presi
dent taking thoath of ottice on Capitol
Hill I hope that -on the other side will
be given William McKlnles at home
Never in sour time nor mine has been
seen a better example of manhood Till
death do us part was said with clasped
hands In tho little church at Canton and
remembered until that last hand clasp
before the final good bje In this day
when light literature is putting sacred
ness Into frivolltj It would b wise for
artists to commemorate this sentiment
best expressed bj home
When Henry Clay was on his was to
take his scat In Congress he stopped on
the top of a mountain and standing out
