thi New Orleans told of Schleys block

at night he said as the blockading ves

th harbor entrance for about two houis
to the west and then turning outward
wiild steam about two hours to the east
turning Inward at the end of that time
and naki the entrance aain
IHtrerx Willi KnlRcr
Upon croes e xamlnation by Mr ltayner
the witness said that he did not affrce
with the testimony of the New Orleans
comrnamder Captain Folcer so far as it
related to the column of ships going
clcser tn ihore at night hut he did re
member the New Orleans steaming in at
times to take position on the llagship
w hile passing in column In front of the
harbor merely however because she had
drifted farther out and this may have
given Captain Folger the impression that
the vessels were nearer in at night than
in the day The nearest distance on
shore was six miles the witness said and
the greatest eltrht miles
Mr ltayner called his attention to the
log book of the New Orleans which
howed that on Slay 30 the squadron was
lying four and one half miles off shore
The witness however declined to change
his estimate
Of the reconnolssance on Slay 31 the
wltuess said that It was successful to
the extent of finding out somethlnprabout
the Spanish batteries He believed they
wtrd armed with guns of less than six
Inches calibre
To a question by the Judge advocate
Lieutenant I elper said that the column
steamed about tight miles before turning
In passing the harbor entrance at night
Hb had no- knowledge on May 31 that the
attack made on that day was a recon
nolssance and he had no directions to
make observations as to the character of
tho Spanish batteries
Lieut Mark L Uristol recalled to cer
tify to the correctness of the official re
port of his testimony was confronted by
Mr Rayner with two reports to the Navy
Department In regard to tha stadlmeter
which Lieutenant Bristol had said on the
stand was inaccurate In determining dis
tances above 4000 yards- and he had
therefore not wholly depended on It In
fixing distances between lAe -hips of the
American fleet and the Spanish ships in
making his chart of the battle of July 3
This chart placed the Brooklyn farther
nway from the shore and the Spanish
ships when the loop was made than
Admiral Schleys counsel admits
One of these reports was from Lieut
AValnwright Kellog of the flagship New
York to Capt Robley D Evans then
commanding the essel saying that the
stadlmeter had worked remarkably will
was very accurate and was a necessary
hd valuable instrument In the writers
opinion and should be furnished to every
ship lo the navy The -other report was
fromCapt Henry Glass then com nand
Ing the- cruiser Cincinnati who sa1 that
are siauiroeirr naa Deen In almos con
stant use and was accurate In determin
ing distances within Its range
Lieutenant Bristol said in answer to Sin
Rayner that his impression was that the
stadlmeter was fixed for ranges up to
10000 yards
Captain Lemly then showed that the
reports were written in 1S91 To a nuos
tlon from him Sir Bristol raid that those
reports did not cause him to change his
mind about the Inaccuracy of the stadl
meter at long ranges
Lieutenant Commander William II
Schuetze followed Lieutenant Bristol He
ia now in cliarge of compasses in the
na al bureau of equipment In the war
withSpaln he was navigator of the battle
ship Iowa and was afterward a member
-of the V alnwrlght board of navigators
which made the compromise chart fixing
the relative positions of the- American
and Spanish vessels In the battle with
CcTvcras fleet
SlKed Under Protest
Sir Schuetze e aiel he liad signed the re
port of the board under protest and only
because the senior member of the board
Commander VuInwrIght said It was the
litst that the board could do Ills princi
pal objection to the report was that the
chart was Inaccurate as to the position of
the Iowa a position which the Iowa could
rot have had unless she steamed at a
speed of eighteen knots instead of nine
or ten Another of his objections was to
the initial position of the Brooklyn when
the Spanish ships first left the harbor of
Santiago He contended that the position
of the Brooklyn was too close to the
mouth of the harbor He identified a
chart drawn under his own directions by
a cadet of the Iowa and which lie said
represented more accurately the position
of the Iowa with relation to the Spanish
fhips
To other questions Sir Schuetze said
that according to the Brooklyns log
wliieh he had before him the Jowa at s
p m on Slay a when the retrograde
movement of Schleys squadron toward
Key West began wus about thirty miles
to the southwjrd of and sllghtlv to the
stward of the entrance of Santiago
h irbor This was the point where the
adron stopped In Its progress to San
tlr so and then turned around again in
Kbedience to Commodore Schievs signal
that the destination was Key West
1 scribing the engagement with Cer
vtras fleet Sir Schuetze said that at the
b winning of the action the Brooklyn
on the port beam of the Iowa head
ii a little to the eastward of north Soon
afier that he saw her heading about due
ast the direction opposite to that taken
the Spanish ships and that was the
lint he saw of her In the battle lie saw
the Texas also alwut this time he said
nivl he was heading to the eastward of
north and socn after that she was ap
parently lying dead in the water her
litad to the westward He called the at
tention of Captain Evans to the Texas
sing she was right in the way of the
Ijwa and that he didnt know what was
tlP matter with her
Mr Rayner cross examined the witness
Q -You say you signed the rport of
the board of navigators under protest
is that right
A 1 did
Q Why did you sign a report that
wa wrongl Why elld you not state to
the lward This chart Is wrong and I
vlll not sign It
A I did
Q -Then why did you sign It
A I was persuaded to do so by other
millers We wanted to come to an agree
ment and that was the best we could do
Q Then this chart was slgne d for the
purpose of coming to an ngie ement rather
thf n to show accurate results
A There never was a chart prepari d
o any battle in th history of the world
which was elrawn accurately
To more -questions Sir Schuetze said
that tnc navigators had dependcel on their
own Vnow ledge of the battle and In dis
cussion themselves Captains Chad
wlck and Ctiolc were consulted informally
Thc navigator of the Texas Lieutenant
Commander Heilner had objected Sir
Sehiieue said to the position of the
Brooklyn- Up objected to the whole
oi rve the loop as being given wrong
on the chart To a query from Sir Ray
ner as to whether he remembered that
I Initeiant Commander Harlow of the
Vixen made a protest to the board
a rtlnst placing a vessel abreast of the
Ylxyn on the chart when sh was eight
trifli astern of the Vixen at the Uroe Sir
SJiuetze said he did not remember that

ships under command
Ioalllon of the Ship
Of Schl s blockade of Santiago the
witness said the ships lay oft the harbor
anywhere from six to nine or ten miles
day anrf night In patrolling In front of
the enirnnre at night the ships went five
miles to each side of the entrance mak
ing a llhe reri miles long
The witness was nsecd If he remem
bered a signal from tlie Brooklyn to the
other ships on Stay 2S saying While off
Santiago the general meeting place will
be twenty five miles south of that place
He said he1 did remember it
Mr Grant told of Commodore Schley
coming en board the Slassachusctts to
dirtct the firing against the Colon on
HIV si
The Juilge AdvbcateTcll the Court any
conversailqn that you may have had with
the commanding officer of the Flying
Squadron or with anyone elso In his
prevence
Sir Grant I had no conversation with
the commandfngolllcer At 1 eiclock we
cleared the ship for action and went
to general quarters We were then to
the south and west of Santiago I saw
Commodore Schley with members of his
staff and oflicers of our ship on the for
ward 13 lnch turfef after I- had reported
the battery ready We were then several
miles steaming up toward the entrance
I sqwthe fnil or the first three shots of
the Sfassae3iusettsthey all fell short of
the Colon After- these- shots were fired
and the action was on 1 went down bo
low between the hatches to let the men
know what was going on When I came
back I found the ship turning to the
southwest ajid I saw the last shot from
our forward 13 Inch gun All of those
shots fell short TlicJ were excellent line
shots
Q Have you stateel nil that vou think
was said within your hearing as to that
battle
AT r was only In Commodore Schlej s
presence once That was when he went
over from the r hen the
firing was over lie stated I heard his
words thatthej reconnissance had de
veloped the batteries and was satisfac
tory or words to that effect
Sir Grant said in answer to a question
that the fighting ships blockading San
tiago did not withdraw at night although
he thought the colliers Slerrimac and
Sterling did so
In his cross examination Sir Rayner
recalled lo the mind of the witness a sig
nal from the Brooklyn off Clenfuegos on
Slay 24
Jn case of separation rendezvous at
Gonalves Bay and another on the fore
noon of Slay iS from the Brooklyn Ren
dezvous at Gonalves Bay
Sir Jtayner got the witness to read
the log of the SlassachusetU for Slay 25
ami recti v til a negative answer to a ques
tion whether there was anything in It to
show that the Stassachusetts had backed
to avoid collision with the Brooklyn when
the flagship turned in sighting a suspi
cious sail during the run to Santiago
The witness said he had related all the
circumstances of the Tracking on the part
of the Slassachusetts in an official report
to Captain Hlgglnson
To other questions he said the Flying
Squadron went a mile and a hair or two
miles past Aguadores In patrolling In front
of the harbor
IIenJ lunior errade J A Holden who
was a TKival cadet and later an ensign on
board he Scorpion in the war with Spain
was placed on the stanei ana reaa at tne
judge advocates request the order dated
Slav 22 from Commodore Schley to the
Scorpions commander to take messages
to the senior officer off Santiago Tile
Scorpion left Clenfuegos that night and
on Slav 24 reached Santiago and ileillvered
the despatches to Captain Cotton The
judge advocate expects to show later that
the despatches carried by the Scorpion on
Slay 22 were baseet on the Dear Schley
letter from Sampson which Commodore
Schley clalmei In his defence to the Sen
ate had not been received by him until
Slay 23
Cnptnin Iemljs SHKCestlon
When Lieutenant Holden had told this
much Captain Lcmly turned ti Sir Ray
ner and said that the witness - es the of
ficer who -wrote the entry in the Scor
pions log on Slay 19 In regr -d to a mes
sage from Lieutenant Corraiander South
exland of the EaUe r Southerland
had testified that this message was given
to the Scorpion by megaphone for com
munication to Commodore Schley and
that it was to the effc ct that Insurgents
reported that Cervcras ships were not
at Clenfuegos on Slay S and that news
of What Was going on at Clenfuegos
could be obtained from Cubans at a camp
thirteen miles west of the harbor at a
point named by him The log of the
Scorpion contained an entry af the mes
sage but omitted the part In regard to
the Cuban camp saying merjly that the
Eagle reported no news
Sir Rayner said he was much obliged
for Captain Lemly s suggestion and
asked if there was any written evidence
of such a message as that to which Sir
Southerland had referred Captain Lemly
said he beiieved that Sir Southerland was
right In saying that he had delivered the
message but there was a discrepancy be
tween his statement and the log of the
Scorpion lie had not however been able
to show that the message was elellvered to
Commodore Schley Then Captain lemly
stated that he had every reason to be
lieve and would admit that if the com
mander of the Scorpion Aelolph Slarix
now at Manila were summoned he would
not state that communication of the en
tire megaphone message had been maele
to Commodore Schley Sir ltayner asked
the Judge advocate whether he was able
to state that Slarix would testify If he
were before the Court The Judge ailvo
cate said he had a cablegram and letter
on th subject and Sir Rayner offered
to allow them to be put in evidence The
judge advocate thereupon re ad the tele
grams between the Navy Department and
Admiral Remey at Manila and a deposi
tion of Commander Slarix sent by mail
The deposition which gave more fully
the Information contained In the cable
gram was as fallows

Clenfuegos with his ships and he did
not believe that Cervcras fleet had
arrived there when Slarblehead left

SAMPSON NOT A PARTY
Mr Stnytoii Afciiin the Itlglit
to Ite prcHeut lllm
William Stayton of -New York se
lected by Admlra Sampson to represent
him as counsel before the Court of En
quiry yesterday morning tiled with Ad
miral Dewey President of the Court a
second application to be recognized by the
Court as the attorney for Admiral Samp
son and to be extended the right to hear
testimony and to defend Admiral Samp
son as his legal representative The ap
plication is crabcdleii In a lengthy com
munication in which -art reiclted what
Sir Stayton considers as tffective argu
ments in support of bis application
The letter follows
Washington D C Oct IS 1S0L
Admiral George Dewey U S N Presi
dent Naval Court of Enquiry Wash
ington D G -
Sir I -am instructed by Rear Admiral
Sampson lo acknowledge lor him the re
ceipt of yeiur letter of the 27th of Septem
ber 19Jl stating that the Court doe s not
at this time regard him as a party to the
case now beforeit -and Is therefore un
able to comply with his request that he
be permitte d representation by counsel
z 1 am further Instructed by the ad
miral to ask that whenever the circum
stances arise which entitle him to rep
resentation you will permit our admis
sion as counsel in his behalf
3 Sir E S Theall of Washington D
C who is- my associate In this matter
and myself have been present in the
court room nearly every day of this pro
cedure and one or both of us will en
deavor to be present every day hereafter
4 We have not had facilities which
would permit us to hear the proceeelings
but we have been furnished with copies
of the Courts record and beg leave to
refer respectfully to certain png s of that
record which contain attacks upon Ad
miral Sampson
a Rear Admiral Schiey for instance
was pnrmitted to Bay see plige 7 that
the principal parties to the present
are Itear Admiral Sampson and
Schley
C Direct allegations have been maele
against Admiral Sampson and we ask
the Court to refer to pages 152 to IX of
the record where counsel repeatdly ac
cuse Admiral Sampson first of conduct
ing a blockade with his vessels at a eils
tance as great as that which was selecte il
by Admiral Schley for his blockade and
second for iermittlng the Colon to re
main for an Indefinite time after his ar
rival In full sight of his squadron with
out making an effort to elestroy her
7 On nage 21 of the record counsel
was allowed to declaj that despite Ai
mlral Sampsons official report in vich
he states that the battle of July i was
fought under his command that as a
matter of fact Admiral Sampson did net
command on that day and effort was
made by counsel In yesterdays procc ed
Ings to Introduce into evldne a sigral
made by Rear Admiral Painpsjn which
counsel stated in his argument was in
tended to show that Rear Admiral Sctiley
was at that battle
Surely these allegations Invovv the- honor
of a naval officer
8 The Courts pre copt states that an
officer who is Interested may Bv prmltted
to appear and defend himself nnd while
we fully realize that Admiral - Sampson
Is not a party to the case as the Court
states In Its letter of the 27th of Septem
ber yet notice has been given that an
effort will bi marie to deprive him of his
honors and even or his honor and his
good name and he is nrcued -of per
mitting an enemys -vessel to lie- undis
turbed In his presence and all that as a
naval officer he holds dear is involved
and we ask you td elecldc merely that he
ltf interested
9 IL- Is- true that the attacks upon
Admiral Sampson have been maele covert
Iv and under the name of argument but
the statements h eve been nevertheless
public the y have been givi great cur
rency and they are cmbedi d In the
record to remain forever on tlie files of
tho Navy Department It is at least
worthy of comment- that -in every occa
sion In which such an argument has been
indulged in the question at issue lias be en
voluntarily withdrawn after full oppor
tunity had been taken to accuse the ad
miral
10 Were we alone In our opinion that
these arguments an- Improper we should
hesitate to make such statements but the
Judicial officer of the Court the Judge
advocate has repeatedly characterized
these arguments as Improper
ll iWe of course realize fully that the
Intervention of new Issues anel new
parties might be Improperly used to cum
Jier the record -and prolong the trial but
tounsel ire entirely under the routrol of
the Court andmay always be suitably re
stricted
We Ihereforo request that we now be
permitted tol appear before tile Court and
given faculties which will enable us to
hear the procedure and be present to de-
fend Rear Admiral Bampson when counsel
shall make upon him the attacks of the
nature which they liaVi already deemed
proper lo make Very respectfully

One year I lived where the water was
bitter with Iron and J could not bear to
drink it so 1 began drinking coffee three
time a day
Graduallv I noticed an uncomfortable
feeling In the stomach and more or less
constipation In a few months I began
to lie awake atnislis long after I had
retired
-This increased until I never thought
of going to sleep before 3 or 4
oclock In the rnorftmg and then only
after getting out or lied and walking the
floor for nn hour
I was talking or my nervous state with
a friend who suggested that perhaps It
was the coffee lTiadbeen using She felt
quite sure It waS and stated that coffee
would not stay on her stomach at all
but as she felt she must have a hot drink
for breakfast she had been using Postum
Food Coffee She said she didnt like Post
um particularly welt and at breakrast
the next morning I didnt wonder when
1 tasted the Hat drink that tho sen ant
brought on
The same day I was Invited to take
dinner witli another friend Sirs Foster
I had visited her often before and knew
she made delicious coffee so when she
askoel bow 1 liked her coffee said it Is
just as line - usual She Invited me to
have another cup but 1 said I would
not dan to drink the second Oh you
can dilnk as many cups of this as you
like It wont hurt yon This Is Postum
Food Coffee We have been using it a
vear now and the Utile children have all
they want and eiur family have never
li en as healthy ns In the past year
Postum said 1 doubtfully why the
postum I had this morning didnt taste
any more like this than dish water Per
haps It was not made right said my
friend l have known more than one per
son to be turned away from Postum be
cause It was poorly made There Is no
secret In It ouly allow It to boil long
ehoUgh to bring out tho taste nnd there
you arc 1 have been using Postum
since ami nm entirely cured of my trou
ble I cannot say too much for It

Genial Tim Campbcil ex Reprcsentatiye
from New- York by which virtue the pre

been in Washington and the hotel busi
ness In the Capital is Yester
day he signed the lease taking over the
old Hotel Ch imberllu at the head of
which during the coming wfntcr ho will
preside The papers were drawn up with
scarcely any delay following a careful
survey of the property anel the name of
Tim Campbell was signed to them offi
cial refold of his newly assumed obliga
tion as a bonlfacc
When the news goes abroad that Tim
Campbell will assume the place In the
affections of Washington made vacant by
the death of the late John Chamberlin
the rejoicing will be great and states
men from Slalne to California will con
gratulate themselves in advance That
he has antlclpateif taking possession of
the- famous hostelry has been suspected
for some time The name of the hotel
it was stated by E IC Somborn manager
of the place since the death of Sir Cham
berlin will tw changed but whether it
will be Campbells or whether it Is to
to go by some other nomenclature cannot
be learned The principal fact Is that the
lease has been signed and that the work
of refurnishing the building from garret
to cellar is to begin immediately
Fortified by valued and able backers
whose pockets bulge ef with the necessary
money to carry the project through
Judge Campbell as he Is well known to
a large constituency of frienels here ar
rived in Washington early Tuesday morning-
and carefully studleel the Chamberlin
situation until yesterday afternoon rhen
t he left for New York with- the- determi
nation fully -formed and- the- nce essary
legal action taken to open the famous
hosterly
With JIr Gampbell were- August T
Gillender agent for- the Chsmberin
property whos resIdenceffsInNew York
and G H Stayner also of that city
whose connection with the-scheme- Is saiel
to havo considerable bearing upon the
financial part of the- undertaking They
arriveel tired and worn after the trip
from New York for the especial purpose
of looking over the Hoter Clmmberltn
with a View to opening It this winter and
thereby maintaining the integrity of the
capital In spite of fatigue however the
three gentlemen- altera vislt from Robert
O Holtzman the local agent of the
Chamberlin property at Fifteenth and I
Streets visited the closed and darkened
mansion and following a brief survey of
the sejmbre oxterlor cntereii and made
a thorough investigation
The inspection must have been satisfac
tory for immediately after the departure
of the visitors there was a noticeable at
mosphere of activity about the celebrated
resort
The first arrivals were representatives
of a local paporhangcr They brought
tape measures and yardsticks and took
the measurement of every wall I reckon
they are going to put on new paper all
over the place said Henry the colored
watchman who served old John Chamber
lin for many years before his death and
is as much a fixture at the hostelry as
the bar
As might have been expecteel of Tim
Campbell the work of the paperhangers
was not all that was done Before the
day was over ihe deserted hotel had been
thoroughly Inspected and an estimate of
the cost for a complete refurnishing ob
tained The floors were measured for new
carpets the heights of the massive doors
were taken in order that an ldt a might be
ohtained of the yards of portieres neces
sary to equip the walnut frames with soft
and concealing draperies The cost of
rugs ornaments chairs anel the other in
cidentals of house furnishing was care
fullv prepareel by the dealers called In by
the energetic New Yorker
it was learned last night that the gen
tlemeh who came oer from New York
obtained an option on the property some
time ago Sir Somborn who Is under
stood to be Interested in the project -will
probably remain as manager vice Tim
Campbell who will be the great attrac
tion for statesmen and vivanteurs in the
habit of frequenting the place it was
thought some time ago that the hotel
would remain closeel but the visit of Sir
Campbe ll has given assurance that it
will not
The fame of the hostelry will not di
minish when it has as its hcael the man
