LONE ON Oct 10 In a speech at Old
liam Sir Michael Hicks Beach Chancellor
nf the Exchequer defended the Govern
ment on lines similar to thofe cmplocd
b Sir Brodrick He declared tint the
onlj bij In which the Governments
pollc could be hd to be answerable lor
prolonging the war was because of Its
humane mid lenient treatment of 1th op
ponents which he doubted was cer
equaled In hlstorj Jle added
The Goernment of the United Stale1
Is a humane Government The inlnbt
nnts of the Philippines have been fighting
for independence just as much as the
Boers for theirs The Inltcd States Go
has not scrupled to banish the
leaders of their opponents and to confis
cate their propertv but no countr at war
with another country ever before punt
thousands of pounds and Infinite trouble
in endeavoring to maintain with is little
hardship and s ffci ig as p ssible the
families of the i rj men in ai ms against
it Suppo e In the war between Spain
and the United States some 3f the inhab
itants of the United States of Spanish ex
traction had taken the side of the Span
iards and fought in doing so against
their own country Do ou think they
would have been treated as leniently as
we have treated the rebels in the Cape
Colon
Continuing Sir Michael declared tint he
did not mean to sa that the pollc of len
iency was wrong Jt was adopted in rec
ognition of the fact that with eventual
peace there would come a time when the
white races In South Africa would live
together and the Government was anx
ious even at the cost of prolonging the
war to do nothing avoidable that was
likely to increase the nnlmosit between
the two races But the time might come
for seerer measures If It did the oppon
ents of the British would have onl them
selves to bdme
He explained that the proclamation of
martial law in the Cape Colon had been
decided upon In complete concert with the
Cape Government it was mainl for the
purpose of stopping the smuggling of am
munition to the rebels and Boers whicli
there was reason to believe had been go
ing on at some of the Colonial ports
At the luncheon today given for General
Duller by the Kings Roai Rifles Sir
rharlcs Edward Howard Vincent M P
for Central Sheliield made a public state
ment that he had received an important
communication from Sccretarv Brodritk
affecting the whole militar polic in
South Africa
In his letter Mr Brodrick claims that
ever demand made li General Kitchener
for troops horses and supplies has been
itnmediatel compiled with He sas
We have XJOO O men and 40 guns in
South Africa One hundred thousand
men are training at home Our last re
turns show that we are furnishing sup
plies from here for SHOoO persons and 21S
000 horses and mules We retain In South
Africa a reserve of four months feed for
men and animals At present there are
in the field sixt nlne perfectl equipped
mobile columns under picked command
ers Ae deliver 10CJ remounts in South
Africa monthlv
1 am urged b man correspondents
to give General Kitchener a free hand
to push the war with sharp and effective
strokes It Is- suggested that inactlvlty
on the part of the Government Is causing
the people of the countr serious con
cern There is no wonder that the con
tinuance of the war should cause anxiety
but if It Is caused b any of the above
mentioned considerations it may be set
at rest The home Government hns never
in any wa Interfered with the militar
ilisjiosllions of General Kitchener In
whose vigorous prosecution of the war
it has entire confidence General Kitch
ener took command on November 29 1
Onlv once has he asked for more troons
in December isco when General rv Wet
i
p alace of Justice IJullcHii
entered the Ope Colou
Mr Brodrick states that these troops j Innes Attoine General of
were sent and adds that the onl reason
more troops were not sent was because
the military authorities said the war was
nearl over and the were not needed
The onl excuse for there being no meet
ings of the Cabinet is that none Is needed
Euch meetings might Indicate a want of
confidence
Gen Sir Redvers Buller whose recent
appointment as commander of an army
corps has been much criticised expressed
his condemnation of the newspaper criti
cisms of men who were doing their best
and risking their lives for the countr
He assc rteel that nobod junior to him
was fiLed to command an arm corps
and he challenged the critics to nime
one
G neral Buller said he had been attacked
on account of a telegram which it was
said he had sent ordering General White
to surrender Lad smith after his Bul
lers attack on Colenso on Dccembtr 15
1SS3 had resulted unsuccessful General
Bitier described nt length his own and
General Whites difficulties at that time
message telling General White that his
Buller s attack had failed and he could
not make another attempt to relieve him
within a month In the then slow lighting
General Buller slid he read this telegram
over several times saing to himself
Thats ft mean thing to send a fellow
but he knew the rewponsiblllt was his
and that General White could sa If he
surrendered that General Buller had nd
Ised It
The same telegram suggested that It
might be necessary to surrender and In
that case General Buller made some sug
gestions as to what General White should
do and how he should do It thinking tliit
It would be cover for a man whom he be
lieved to be in greater difficulties than
his own
General Buller declared that he wanted
to bring the man who said he had coun
seled General White to surrender Into the
ring Therefore he challenges him to
produce the telegram which he said he
knew waB In the hands of the editor of
a magazine and must have been stolen
liecuuse It was in clphr addressed to
General While and was perfectl private
The speech created a sensation among
those present

CONDEMNATION FOR BULLER
London Paper Consider SIN pnl
PT mi AiunrliiK Blunder
LONDON Oct 10 General Bulcrs
speech his made n tremendous stir The
newspapers are divided In th ir opinions
or It A majority of them Including some
that are not hostile to Generil Bailer
regard it as an amazing blunder and
grentl regret that the g neral did not
adhere to his latel avowed practice to
net answer newspaper criticism Several
papers declare that his cxplan ition that
he heliogriphed to General White sug
gesting that it might be necessar for
him to surrender and advising what to do
in such a case was actually an instruc
tion to surrender and th condemn him
according One paper compares the
message to Sir H Parker s famous
order to Nelson to retire at Copenhagen
which posterit has unsparing con
demned
The Standard ma be quoted as ex
preying the severest view stt forth with
the greatest modcrition compatible with
such an opinion It snS
On the lutHll diiuiging episode of
the heiiographic message General Buller
admitted the wors that can be said
against him It is not the least surpns
Ing feature of the case that he docs t ot
evince mi consciousness of the real
ch trieter of his admissions 11 author
izing General A hlte to surrender he
ceuempHtid a humihitiou coiipired
with which all the other reverses of the
war would have been trivial His motive
it seems was a generous desire to shield
a subordinite from responsibilltv but if
this was chivalr it was not war it was
not leadership and it was not policy
The order was Issued under circum
stances which paIbl vindicate General
Buller s good nature but onlv at the
expense of his judgment and competency
to hold a responsible once It eems to
us there is on cno oourse left for its
unfortunate author On o r considera
tion of all that his admissions involve
it should be obvious to General Buller
that he would best consult his own dig
nity and the national b tesign
ing his command and seeking the retire
ment he Ins earned b jears of arduous
service He must see that he Is no longer
in his place at the head of an armv
corps
General Bullers njiologlsts who as
said are in the mluorit are impressed
b his manl protest against hair brained
critics who hardl know a musket from
a field gun and the unhesitatingl ac
cept his explanation as m ml and frank
The Telegraph the chief of these
sas however that General Buller Is
mistaken in treating the hollogram affair
as involving theft or the Improper dlvul
gence of secrets It intimates that the
facts were falrl well known so far back
as August 1500 Although thinking that
General Buller had ample justification for
his indignant protest the papers think
It would have been nough if he had said
that Earl Roberts who knew all the cir
cumstances in which the despatch was
sent as General Buller s critics cannot
possiblv know retained him In his com
mand and subsequent deliberate con
tinued him in olllce at Aldershot
That surcl sas the Telegraph was
a complete and alisolute vindication of
General Bnlltr on an occasion which Is
responsible for so much ill Lmed and Ill
Informed scandal

for the Huntington amendment killed
b the convention the da before ester

feat of that measure and offered in lu
place a provision allowing the Bishop to
assume oversight of a congregation not
in union with the Church but which
should agree to observe the forms of
Church
The Rev Dr Fulton of Phlladelphl t

All of these nominations were accord
ing to the slate which had been gossipped
about for the past week except that of
Mr Inger for the olhce of district at
torney WhcP Colonel Gardiner who vas
elected district attorne in 1R7 was re
moved b Governor Roosevelt it was an
nounced that lie wojld be renominated
and Mr Croker has been of the opinion
that Mr Gardiner should be vindicated
Mr Crokpr held this opinion right straight
through in spite of objections that were
raised by other leaders of Tamman Hall
1 P to 7 o clock this evening when the
executive committee of Tamman met
Colonel Gardiner s name was on the slate
but strong pressure was being brought
to bear against him This pressure linall
became so insistent that Mr Croker was
compelled to leld
In the executive committee meeting
Colonel Gardiner made a speech He said
that evtr since his removal from office b
Governor Roosevelt which lie considered
to have been unjust and oppressive he
had desired tc be vindicated b renomlna
tion and re election and he thought he
was entitled to renomlnatlon but if poli
tical conditions were such that It s md
inadvisable to put his name on the ticket
this cnr he would accept the situation
and support the man selected for the
place
Colonel Gardiner s speecli was ap
plauded b the executive committee and
half a dozen of them assured him that
tht had no doubt the time would come
when he would be honored b the i art
again It was said that Senator Tlmoth
D Sullivan was one of the men who stuck
out longest in Gardiner s i chalf
Mr Inger who was selected as a can
didate In place oStColonel Gardiner was
the colonel s first assistant He has had
a great deal of experience In the district
attorne s oflice lie was recently coun
sel for Bissert
The convention was crowded and en
thusiastic over uOy delegates being pres

cntc AAltb the Cnlinns Lleiilrnnnt
Cniiininnder Sclinetxe Discredit
the Rattle- Chart Bristol Mill VI
lieres to Ills Own Ohscrintlonii
Captain I cmly the judge advocate of
the Schle Court of Enquiry was very
magnanimous at one stage of the pro
ceedings before that tribunal esterday
He voluntarll indicated to Mr Rayner
where a point could be scored In the In
terests of Admiral Schley and In doing
so allowed the fact to be shown that one
of his former witnesses had to be very
generous with him been very much mis
taken In his testimony
It Is necessary to go back of the pro
ceedings of estcrda AAhile Captain
MeCalla who had been with his sub
squadron off Clenfuegos was op the way
to Key AYest on Ma 3 he encountered
the Flying Squadron en route to Cienfuc
gi id direct si the Eagle under eom
mard of Lieutenant Commander V IL
H Southetland to go and communicate
with Schle s flagship But the Scorpion
Intercepted the Eagle before the latter
vessel could reach th Brookfon and took
the message which Commander Souther
land communicated Then the vessels con
tinued on their respective courses
When Mr Southcrland was called to the
witness stand about ten das ago h said
that under Instructions from Captain Me
Calla he had megaphoned to the Scorpion
among other things that a landing pbice
had been effected near Clenfuegos where
communication could be had with the in
surgents In camp some of whom went
Into the town each day and were posted
on the situation The log of the Scorpion
which Schley had sent to receive any
communication from Captain MeCalla
contained no rectJrd of any such message
received It onl showed that Souther
lnnd had made some unimportant state
ments regarding the Nashville being dis
abled and that the Cincinnati and some
other vessel were off Port San Antonio
and that there was no news
Ycsterda Captain Lemly called Lieut J
H Holden to the stand and asked him a
few unimportant questions Then he In
formed Mr Raner that Lieutenant
Holden was the officer who had nvsdc the
entry in the Scorpion s log of the message
received from the Eagle and he allowed
the fact to be developed from the witness
that the entry in the log was as the mes
sage had bcn received and that Lieuten
ant Commander Southerland was wrong
Lieutenant Holden said that he had not
heard all that Southerland had communi
cated to the Scorpion but he had heard
the most of it- He did hear all that was
communicated from the Scorpion to the
Brook n and It contained no mention of
the fact that any landing place had been
arranged or communication established
with the insurgents
Disagrees AAltli oiitlicrIiiud
Captain Lerai then said that he had
been In correspondence with Commander
Marix who commanded the Scorpion and
who is now In Manila He admitted that
JIarixs statement did not agree with
Southerland s Mr Raner said he would
accept as evidence since Commander
of A lolntlnir llarix could not be brought here the ca
blegram and the deposition received fre n
him Captain Leml read them Com
mander Marix denied that Southerland
had ever megaphoned an message re
garding the landing place or communica
tion with the Insurgents He thought he
Southerland had said something about
Cervcra not having arrived at Clenfuegos
when the Eagle left there but nothing
more Lieutenant Holden said that the
log embodieel all that had been communi
cated from Hie Eagle to the best of hl3
recollection
He did not remember either as South
erland had said that the Eagle and the
Scorpion were so close together during
the speaking that the former had to back
her engines in order to avoid a collision
He thought they were 100 or 200 ards
apart Thus the fact was re established
that Schley was not advised of any code
of signals or communication with the In
surgents at Cienfuegos
Again yesterday the Navy Departments
official chart showing the positions of
tie vess Is during the battle of Santi
ago was discredited The witness who
discredited It as Lieutenant Commander
AYm II Schuetze the navigator of the
Iowa and one of the officers who had as
sisted in its preparation He said he had
signed the report of the board of navi
gators emboding the chart t nder
protest He was persuaded to do
so chletl b Commander AAaln
wrlght vvho said it was the best that
could be done undr the circumstances
The witness disagreed with location
of the Iowa as shown upon the chart as
in order to maintain her relative posi
tion with the other vessels It would have
been necessary for her to have steamed
IS knots nn hour whereas she only made
9 or 10 duiirg the battle Again he did
not agree with the initial position as
signed to the Brookln This witness did
not see the famous loop He said l o
chart of an great naval battle was ever
correct
The tcstlmon of Lieut Edward F
Lciper of the New Orlevis vvas chiefly
notable esterda for the fact that he
disagreed with the commanding officer of
his vessel Captain Folger as to the value
of the rccotnolssance of Mu 1 and as
to the distance which the Fllng Squadron
patrolled east and west In front of the
harbor of Santiago He described the at
tack on the Colon and what he thought
was accomplished b it
Leut Mark I- Bristol the louijht
ehimpion of his own opinions who with
his naked ce determined distances posi
tions tanges md helghtB far better thn
the most delicate Instruments gave the
Court some further benefit of his knowl
edge and experience esterday He went
upon the stand t correct his testlm m
He had some grammatical changes to
make but Ins figures and estimates all
stood as he had given them
Ills Own Observations lle ct
Mr Raiier took occasion to ask If he
knew anything about an rciwrts made
by iiaval officers upon the value of the
stadlmeter as an instrument for measur
ing distances He did not He did nst
have to know He had his own experi
ence and oliservations to fall back upon
Mr Rayner read from the reports of v
number of office a stating in effect th it
the stadlmeter was ver accurate and
that It should be on all versels Mr
Bristol of course knew to the contrarv
