must fire at the Colon and he hoped we
would sink her I asked what speed we
were to make and was told ibout ten
knots I remarked that I thought that
Was giving us verj little chance at the
Colon as she would be in sight hetween
the headlands only a couple of moments
and as the smoke from the guns would
robablj make our firing very slow To

Lieut rrancjs Boughter told the
Court what he saw from the Marblehead
In the Spanish American war In
th Santiago blockade hj Srhej
the MarWchead which was one of the
Inner pickets was about three miles from
shore and about si v miles vest of the
Morro Lieutenant ltoughter was ques
tioned bv the Court as follows
Q Was the Alarblehead In such a po
stlon oil Santiago that the enemjs ves
sels could be seen If thej had attempted
to leave the harbor
A That would depend upon circum
stancesupon the state of the weather
upon how close to the shore line they
kept ard upon their being able to conceal
their fires If kept close to the
shore we were three miles off we
could not see them provided thej con
cealed their fires
Mr R ijncr cross examined the witness
to get at his understanding as to the
clnnce for the Spanish ships to escape
from Santiago Harbor and Lieutenant
Bouchtcr explained that those on the
Marblehead could not have seen them if
thev had come out at night in the manner
which he had stated to the Court
Junior Lieut Ernest L Bennett who
was Hag lieutenant to Admiral Sampson
in the war with Spiin and who is nov at
the Boston Navj Yard where he served
as aide to Admiral Sampson up to the
latters recent eVtichmert from tint sti
tion followed Lieutenant Boughter He
was the first witness from the New York
who has been called by the Judge ad
To Captain Lcmlvs questions he said
he could not remember what despatches
were sent bj Admiral Sampson to Com
modore Schlej on May 20 1S33 bj tho Du
pont Iow i and Hawk as it was not his
business to keep track of them The New
York arrived at Santiago on the morn
ing of June 1 and found the rijlng
Squtdron there The witness added that
as soon as tho New York arrived the
Colon which was Ijlng near the entrance
to the harbor steamed back farther
Cininln Iemlv then turned over tho
iwitncss to Mr Rajner -with the explana
tion that he could not object to naving
Mr Rajner examine Lieutenant Bennett
as aa he pleased without being re
stricted to the testimorry given In the ex
amination In chief Mr Rajner said he
had nothing to ask the witness
The Bear fjdilej Letter
important was
given by Lieut Charles E Marsh 1 ovv of
the flagship Kearsarge who was flag
lieutenant to Admiral Simnson In the
Spanish war By him the Judge advocate
showed that according to an entrj In the
official journal kept by Admiral Sampson
the Dupont carried the Dear Schlej
letter for Sampson and delivered it to
at Cienfuegos
The Judge Advocate It appears In
evidence before the Court that the tor
pedo boat Dupont left West on the
20th of May with despatches to the com
mander of the rivlrg Squadron at San
tiago Were jou Ir the performance of
j our dutv at A est at that time
l Can j ou from state what
despatches were so sent bj the Dupont
to be delivered to Commodore Schley
A To the best of my knowledge and
belief the documents sent b the Dupont
to Commodore consisted of a letter
from Admiral Sampson and a memoran
dum w hich had been rcceiv cd from Com
mander McCalla
Q Describe these two documents
A My reason for remembering the In
cident Is that Ve received a telegram from
Iho Navy Department requesting Admiral
Sampson to ask Captain McCalla for cer
tain information concerning the neighbor
hood pf Cienfuegos and the possibility of
landing troops there The arrival of that
telegram was nearly coincident with the
arrival of Captain McCalla and he
brought a replj to It In the form of a
memorandum That was written In ci
pher and was sent to the commander of
the Fljlng Squadron
Lieutenant Marsh said he would be able
to ted from the oilicial record of the New
York when these communications had
been sent He asked for the official Jour
nal whkh Admiral Sampson was required
to keep bj the naval regulations the
press copy book and index books By ref
erence to the index he found entries show
ing that two letters to Schley had been
written Sampson on Maj ID numbered
5 and 6 and that the second letter en
closed the McCalla memorandum and one
letter on Maj20 beginning Dear Schlej
and designated as number 7 With the
Dear letter was enclosed a ci
pher despatch from the Department
to Sampson advising him to
spnd to Santiago on account of a
report that the Spanish fleet was at that
Mr Ravntr crcs cxamined Lieutenant
Marsh After some preliminary qustions
he devoted his efforts to an attempt to
show that the Dear letter was
carried bj other vessels than the Dupont
Q What vessel carried No 7 despatch
The Dear J3chlej letter
A The Dupont carried it
Q Dd the Iowa also carry the No 7
The Iowa also reached Cienfuegos on
May 22
A No sir
Q Was the Dupont tho only vessel
lhatcarrled No 7
A I think so
Q Have there not been duplicate
copies of No 7 introduced here
The Ji dge Advocate There have been
two copies of No 7 ihtrcduccd
Mr ltAyner to the witness How do
jou account for the other copj
A I know nothing about the other copj
It Is possible that the Hawk carried it
Q Then your testimony Is that the
Dupont carried No 7 and that jou have
no recollection of any other vessel carrj
ing it
A That is right
J Now as to No 8 the despatch of
21 JKSS from Admiral Sampson to
Commodore Schley beginning Spanish
squadron probably at Santiago what
vessels one or more carrird that
JV No S w as carried the Haw k
Q Did not the Marblehead carry a
duplicate of No S
A I think that the Hawk and the
Marblehead had duplicate copies
Q The onlj oper question Is whether
thi Iowa did not carry No 7
A She did not carrj it

There was a stir of Interest among the
spectators whn Capt French V Chad
wlck was called Captain Chadwlck was
commander of the flagship New York
and Admiral Sampsons chief of staff In
the war with Spain He was admonished
the Navy Department last jear for
saving that he would not tako Admiral
Schley by the hand If thej should meet
est rda he sjt live or six feet from
Admiral Schlej but thej did not speak
Captain Chadwiek has been regarded as
the most ardent purtlsan of Admiral
io questions by Mr Hanna the judge
advocates asslstunt Captain Chadwiek
told of seeing Contain McCalla of the
Marblehead on board the New York at
Kev West on Maj U and that Captain
McCalla had told him of making arrange
ments vlth Cubans near Cienfuegos bj
whl h the Amirlcan vessels could com
municate with thim Captain McCalla
told the- witness of the secret ee d of sig
nals which he had arranged with the Cu
lians but he did not want anj thing said
about It as the Marblehead was going
back to Cienfuegos the next day
Did jou communicate these signals to
Commodore and If not not
asktd Mr Hanna
I did not communicate them to Com
modore Schley answered Cuptaln Chad
wiek because Captain McCalla said lu
was going to Cienfuegos the next day
Other qustlons brought out from Cap
tain Chadwlck that the Brookljn with
Schley on board had left Kej West when
Captain McCalla arrived there and told
the witness of the signal nrrargement
and that the witness didnt remember
having told Captain Evans about it Cap
tain Chadwlck said he lemembercd a con
versation between Sampson and Schley on
board the New York on Maj 10 when
S hleys squadron reached Kej West
Schley In the presence of the witness
assured Sampson that ho was very loyal
to him and was pleased to be under his
eommand The wltress told nlso of In
terviews In his presence between Samp

miral Sampson Admiral Schlej and the
commanding officers of ships and on that

tween Sampson Schley anil the wltnes
Asked by Mr Hanna to tell what passed

Mr Rajner Do jou remember a de
spatch from Admiral Sampson In which
ho congratulated Commodore Schlej on
Us success
A Yes I remember that because I pro
tested ngilnst this congratulation and
asked Admiral Sampson whj he persisted
In It he said 1 want to encourage him
I said that under the circumstances I
thought It was Improper
Mr Kavner read tho congratulatorj
dcqsitch It was In replj to the one from
Schlej to Sampson saj lng that he was
lLOckading Cervera in Santiago and was
as follows Congratulnto you on suc
cess Maintain close blockade at all haz

Captain McCalla got there
A Yis or course th refore It was not

Another question- by Mr Rayncr
brought out cno of the secrets of the war
with Spain that a telegraph operator in
the cable office at Havana was sending
information to the United States This
scemcel to account for the failure of this
Government to cut the Havana Key West
Q what source did the
tlon come to jou that the Spanish fleet
was in the harbor of Santiago
A The first information we had was by
a telegram from the Navy Depirtment
The next Information was a statement of
Captain Allen of the Signal Corps Lieu
tenant Staunton of Admiral Sampsons
staff had met Captain Allen on the
streets In Kej West on May 20 ami had
Informed him that the evening beforo ha
had received a communication from a
telegraph operator at Hnvanf that the
Spanish fleet had gone into Santiago
Harbor Ho said he was only waiting for
the evening of the 0th aa he could com
municate with Hav aA once a day
to havo that information corroborated
The fact was corroborated in the evening
nrd It was that which caused Sampson
to send tne despatch to tho Navy De
partment and to Commodore Schley that
the Spanish fleet was at Santiago
Mr Rajner said he had a few more
questions to ask Captain Chadwlck but
Admiral Dewej would not consent to
have tho session prolonged bevond tho

It was learned last night at the Depart
ment of Justice that the Investigation of
charg s against Chief Justico AVebster
Street of the Supreme Court of Arizona
was now under way but that tho nature
of the charges would not be made public
until the Investigation Is completed
About six weeks ago tho department
received complaint Intimating It Is al
leged that Judge Street had accepted
5000 as consideration for his alleged de
cision In a mining case Other charges
were also said to have been fileU against
him one In regard to his alleged ap
proval of the annexing to or lncluellng In
the corporation of tho city of Phoenix
certain private lands
At tho time tho complaints were re
ceived Judge Street was visiting In the
East Hearing of the matter ho carao to
Washington at ence It has since been
understood that President Roosevelt has
been making personal enquiries regarding
the matter It is said to be the Presi
dents determination to make rigid in
vestigation of nil charges against tho
United States judiciary
Interest In Judge Streets caso Is being
revived by the recent arrival In Washing
ton of Julius M Jamison whoso appoint
ment as Chief Justice of Arizona in place

It was stated last night at the Depart
ment of Justice that Mr Jamison had
come here and had requested that he be
appointed to the chief Justiceship of Ari
zona In case of a It was also
stated that no determination to appoint
Mr Jamison hael been arrived at and
that Judge Street would continue in office
unless the charges against him now being
Investigated were substantiated

portant conference will probably be held
either at that time or in the near future
In addition to being ono of the party
leaders whose advice Is liable to be sought
on almost any subject Senator Frjo is
the senior member of the Committee on
Foreign Relations It Is quite likely that
the President will draw on Senator Frjo
for advice regarding his message
A number of other members of the up
per house will appear In Washington soon

dential boom little has been recently
heard Is expected almost any time Sen
