TWO OTHER NEW WITNESSES
Evans Described in Detail the Prin
cipal Battle of Santiago and the
Bombardment of the Colon on
May 3i2-Did Not 'Finish.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 30. Admiral Ev
ans, who, as Captain, commanded the battle-ship
Iowa during the Santiago cam
paign, was a witness before the Schley
court of Inquiry today. His testimony
covered the period from the time the
Iowa left the port of Key West on May
20, J898. until July &, when Admiral Evans
testified he had a conversation, with Ad
miral Schley concerning the battle on July
3, He described in detail the principal
"battle of Santiago, and gave particulars
concerning the bombardment of the Colon,
on May 3L Other witnesses of the day
were Captain. Theodore F. Jewell, who
was commander of the cruiser- Minneap
olis during the Spanish War, and Com
mander James O. Miller, who "was in com
mand of the collier Merrlmac until that
vessel was turned over to Lieutenant Hob
son to be sunk in the mouth of the har
bor at Santiago. Admiral Evans had not
concluded his testimony when the court
adjourned until tomorrow.
Today's proceedings were begun, as
usual, by recalling previous witnesses for
corrections in their testimony. While
Commander Southerland was on the
stand he was asked by the court whether,
if the fleet of Cervera had been inthe
harbor of Cienfuegos, It could have been,
seen by the vessels blockading the port.
"I cannot definitely say. 'Not unless
they had anchored in the lower harbor
just inside of the entrance, in the deep
water where the schooner to which I re
ferred before was anchored. I do not be
lieve they would have anchored in that
The First New Witness.
The first new witness of the day was
Commander James O. Miller, who was
in command of the collier Merrlmac while
that vessel was a part of Admiral Schley's
flying squadron. Commander Miller said
he had assumed command of the
Merrlmac April 11 at Norfolk. He had
taken on board at Lambert's Point soon
afterward about 50 tons of coal. His ves
sel 'had, he said, been capable at first of
making between 9 and 10, knots, but af
terward he had trouble with his machinery
so that by May 23 and 24 he would have hes
itated in trying to secure a .speed of more
than seven "knots. He read from the col
lier's Ipg to show that the Iowa, Massa
chusetts and Castlne had been coaled qn
thjv23d tw&Jllili. Np jr"eor.cU5v4 fbunu;
of the coaling of' any Vessel on the "25th
or 26th, the time consumed in proceeding
from Cienfuegos to Santiago.
"The "sea," he sard, "on ,the 25th was
nasty, quite nasty. The Merrlmac be
ing a heavy vessel, its speed was not
affected, but if I had had a smaller ves
sel I should have felt It very much."
He also said that the weather for that
day was bad. The witness said that late
in the afternoon of May 26, the Interme
diate valve of the collier was broken, but
that previous to the arrival off Santiago
she had not been "broken down, disabled
As to the conditions on the 26th, the
witness said: "I should say I could have
coaled, as I find here, (consulting the log)
we were making 10 knots. At one time
we got up to 12 knots. I fancy the
weather could not have been very bois
terous. I read from the log seven knots,,
then six and so on. There Is one entry
here that we got up to 11 knots. On that
date I find 'Steaming with the squadron
east to quarter north,' and I find by the
entry between 8 o'clock In the morning
and meridian of that date that we made
from 10 to 12 knots."
Mr. Hanna What was the condition of
"The sea had smoothed, I should judge,
from the way we were going. We raised
our speed from 7 to 10 knots."
"Could you have coaled vessels on the
afternoon of the 26th?"
He Could Have Coaled.
"I could up to the time I was broken
down. While I had control of the ship
I could have coaled."
"What time did you break down?"
"We stopped at 5:30 that afternoon."
Asked if vessels could have been coaled
while the Merrlmac was in tow of the
Yale, the witness replied that that was a
supposititious question, and that he would
not like to say. As a matter of fact she
did not coal any vessel while in. tow. On
all days from May 23 to May 31, except
on the days when en route from Cienfue
gos to Santiago and when disabled, the
Merrlmac had had vessels alongside for
the purpose of coaling, and they had been
coaled from the collier.
On cross-examination Commander Miller
said the Massachusetts had been coaled
at 7:30 In the morning of the 24th. He was
then examined concerning signals- as to
coaling the Texas.
"I signaled over, 'I object to having two
battle-ships alongside of me,' " said Com
mander Miller. "They have a peculiar mo
tion, and when two battle-ships are roll
ing they would have a tendency to crush
a collier between them. It was not so
much on account of the weather as it
was the presence of a battle-ship on each
"How was the sea at that time?"
"I did not feel the sea very much be
cause my ship was a peculiarly steady
"How was It as far as the other ships
"Battle-ships nearly always have mo
tion; that Is my experience. As far aa I
am personally concerned, I could have
"Well, how about the other vessels?"
"That is not for me to judge." ,
"Then when you spoke of your capacity
to coal, you spoke about your own ship?"
"yes; that-st was ready for delivery. I
am giving no opinion regarding other
Continuing, the witness said that he "al
ways hated to go alongside the battle
ships. The Merrlmac was always steady,
but the battleships were continually roll
ing." "Especially in a rough sea," suggested
"In any sea," responded the witness.
"Is not that especially true when the
warship has protruding sponsons, as had
"They were always nasty," the witness
His liog "Was Silent.
Mr. Haynor questioned Captain Miller
closely concerning the stale of the weath
er and sea May 26, quoting from Admiral
Cervera'e statement on that subject, but
the witness would only say that his log
was silent as to the condition of the sea
at that time.
In conclusion, Captain Miller referred to
his removal from the command of the JMer
rimac In order to turn the vessel over to
"Wheq I was taken out summarily from
the Merrlmac nearly everything I had was
lost, and the only thing I can remember
now with the few notes I have here is in
The court asked: "Was there any point
near Cienfuegos where vessels could nave
found protection from the sea on May
The witness replied: "I do not think,
unless we had gone up probably to the
Isle of Pines, there was any place, so far
as I can remember now, where would have
been found smoother weather than we
found off Cienfuegos, unless going very
far to the eastward."
The court also asked: "Could you have
coaled any of the vessels on May 25 had
you been ordered to do so?"
To this the reply was: "I should judge
so, to the best of my knowledge and be
lief. I say I could coal, yes; I could coal
at any time, but then I could not have
coaled comfortably. For the other ships
it was what we call a nasty sea and
squally, rainy weather, and if I had my
choice I would not have coaled on that
As he left the stand Captain Miller
asked that he might be excused if he had
shown any temper.
"I feel a little bit touchy about the
Merrlmac," he said.
Admiral Dewey assured him that he had
displayed no temper.
Captain Miller was succeeded on the
witness stand by -Captain Theodore J.
Jewell, who commanded the cruiser Min
neapolis during the Spanish War. Cap
tain Jewell said he had first fallen in with
the flying squadron under the command of
Commodore Schley on the evening of
May 26. Captain Lemly quoted from Ad
miral Schley's letter to the Senate com
mittee on naval affairs, dated February
18, 1899. saying; "After having been In
formed by the scouts commanded by such
officers as Slgsbee, Jewell and Wise, that
although they had tfeen off Santiago for
a week they had seen nothing of Cervera's
fleet since itleft Curacoa," and asked
whether he had given to Admiral Schley
this information or any other information
concerning the Spanish fleet, the witness
"I gave him no information with refer
ence to the subject wnatever."
The Judge-Advocate asked: "At the
time you were within signaling distance
of the flagship of the flying squadron off
Santiago, were you at any time asked
any question by Cpmmodore Schley as to
the presence of the Spanish squadron in
"Not to my recollection."
"Do you recollect whether you went on
board the flagship Brooklyn at this time?"
"I did not go on board that day."
Captain Jewell said that when he had
flrst seen Admiral Schley's statement as
to the information he might have given
concerning Cevera's fleet, he had written
a letter to. the department denying that
he had done so. Objection was made to
this line of testimony, and it was not per
sisted in. The witness said, In reply to a
question from Mr. Raynor that he hzg no
knowledge that Captain Slgsbee, speaking
for himself, and for Captain Jewell and
Wise, stated that Commodore Schley on
the 26th, at Santiago, that neither he (the
witness) nor Wise nor himself (Slgsbee),
had seen anything or knew anything of the
mbvements or whereabouts of the Spanish
fleet. Nor did he -know whether Captain

Coaling Question Opened Up.
The court here asked a question which
opened up the' coaling question. The
"How far could the Minneapolis have
gone with her 400 tons of- coal at the time
"If I had burned 400 tons of coal 1
would have made something like 1200 or
1300 miles. That would have left the bun
kers empty. I was burning about 95 tons
a day, and on that making 14 to 15 knots."
Drawing from Captain Jewell the fact
that the distance from Santiago to Key
West Is 850 miles, Mr. Raynor said:
"In view of what you said just now, will
you explain the signals I read: '8:30 P. M.,
May 26, flagship to the Minneapolis: Have
you enough coal to go to Key West?'
Minneapolis to flagship: Just enough.'
How do you explain that?"
"I am giving my recollection at the
time. Aa I said, my coal supply was
reduced and I was concerned. There were
a great many signals being made, and 1
replied to the signal without consulting the
coal account particularly, and I considered
that three days' steaming was about the
limit I could safely go."
"There is an error here of about 500 to
600 miles. Eight hundred and 1300, or 1400,
are very different."
"I estimated the distance I could steam.
I did not usually provide, for burning
every ounce of coal In the junkers, and,
furthermore, we have got to allow for con
tingencies. I was hauling the Area from
the boilers very often on account of the
leaks, and starting fresh fires In other
.boilers. My coal expenditures was varia
ble. I could not dep6na on it."
"Then at this time you just had enough,
according to these signals, to go to Key
"I arrived in Key West with less than
100 tons of coal on board."
Captain Jewell" was then excused, and
Captain McCalla was recalled for the
purpose of correcting his testimony. While
he was on the stand, the court asked him
two questions, which together with the re
plies were as follows:
By the Court Was there any place In
the vicinity of Cape Cruz where large ves
sels could have found protection from
westerly or southwesterly winds?
"There was no place where the large
ships could take protection from westerly
and southwesterly winds."
By the Court Had the fleet of Cervera
been in the harbor of Cienfuegos, could It
have been seen by the vessels blockading
that port? , i
"I should say not. The upper part of
the masts might have beenVseen if they
had been in the stretch of the river where
it turns to the east, but I should not ex
pect to have found them there. If they
were behind the hill, they could not have
been seen In my opinion."
Captain McCalla was then excused, and
the court adjourned for luncheon.
"Fighting" Bob Evans Called.
When the court convened for the after
noon session, Rear-Admiral Robley D,
Evans who, as Captain, commanded the
battle-ship Iowa during the battle off San
tiago, was called to the witness stand. He
stated that he had first joined the flying
squadron off Cienfuegos on May 22, at 1
P. M., when he took the dispatches from
Admiral Sampson to Commodore 'Schley
by his executive officer, Commander
Rogers, he not seeing the Commodore
himself. As the dispatches were sealed
he did not-know their contents.
"Please state what, if anything, was
done while this squadron was off Cien
fuegos toward developing the fact as to
whether the Spanish squadron, under Ad
miral Cervera, was in the harbor of Cien
fuegos?" "There was nothing done so far as I
"What, if anything, within your knowl
edge, was done toward destroying or pre
venting the further completion of the
enemy's batteries in the vicinity of Cien
fuegos?" "On Sunday afternoon, I am quite sure,
Commodore Schley formed his squadron
in columns and stood in to a range of
about a mile and . a. half from shore,

CAPTURE OF MISS STONE.
Missionary Writes How Turkish
Brigands Seized Her.
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept 30. A de
tailed account of the capture of Miss
Ellen M. Stone, the missionary, in Tur
key, has been received in a letter from
Miss H. Haskell, of Samokov, to a rela
tive here. Her letter says Miss Stone had
been holding her usual Summer school
for Bible workers In Bansko, Macedonia.
Oh September 3 a party consisting of six
students from the collegiate institute at
Samova, three or four Bulgarian teach
ers, Mr. and Mrs. Tsllka, who had spent
several years in America; Mrs. Ooshera
and Miss Stone, started for Djuma, 12
hours' travel. From there they were to
go to their different homes. At about 4:30
that afternoon, as they were resting In
the mountains, Miss Stone -and Mrs.
Tsllka being on horseback and the rest on
foot, they were surrounded by 30 or 40
armed men. The men were dressed in
Turkish costumes, but were either masked
or blackened. They ordered the party to
march and drove them up the steep moun
tain side. Miss Stone told the party they
were taking them away from the road to
rob and perhaps kill them. She did not
speak of capture, as it Is almost unheard
of for brigands to take 'women. After
going an hour's distance the brigands
stopped and demanded their money. They
took what gold they had, but returned
the silver. When this was over some of
them said to Miss Stone, "We want you,"
and ordered her and Mrs. Tsllka to go
with them. She made no remonstrance.
Mr. Tsllka made a move to follow his
wife, but they forced him back.
A part of the brigands kept watch on
those that remained, to keep them from
hurrying to inform the government, but
next morning they let them 50. The
brigands murdered one of the men of the
party before, the eyes of the captives, to
getnis horse. They took this animal, as
well as the horses ridden by Miss Stone
and Mrs. Tsllka. The students came to
Samokov and wired Dr. House, at Salon
ika, Miss Stone's station. He immediate
ly went to the American Consul, and also
telegraphed Consul-General Dickinson,
who knew Miss Stone. The news spread
over Bulgaria like a flash, for Miss Stone
was widely known and greatly beloved.

It Is Proposed to Change the A'amc
of the Philippine Islands.
NEW YORK, Sept. 30. A suggestion
which is meeting with favor Is to change
the name of the Philippine Islands to the
McKInley Islands, says the Washington
correspondent of the Tribune. It Is in
tended to bring the proposition before the
next Congress. A part of the scheme em
braces the Idea of bestowing upon the
different islands and provinces the names
of the men most prominently identified
with the acquisition and management of
the Islands. For example, the members
of the American Commission which nego
tiated the Paris treaty would thus be
honored, as well as the names of Admiral
Dewey, General Lawton, Governor Taft
General Otis, Secretary Root and others.
