ARCTIC DRIFT CASKS. Captain of the Bear Placed Fifteen of Them on Ice Floes. WASHINGTON, Oct. 2. News has been received by Admiral Melville that Captain Francis Tuttle, the commanding officer of the revenue cutter Bear, placed IS of the Melville-Bryan drift casks on several of the largest ice floes to the northward and westward of Point Barrow. The first landing -was effected August 19, in lati tude 72:10 north and longitude 165 -west. Five casks were placed on this floe. As the southerly winds had driven the loose Ice against the main pack, the placing of tho casks on the main floe was a hazard ous undertaking. Captain Tuttle then steamed along the edge of the pack in a northwesterly direction, and, reaching a solid floe in latitude 75:50 north and longi ture 171:33 -west, placed' five casks on that floe, and later placed five more casks on a floe in latitude 72:18 north and longitude 185:10 west. About this point the ice trended to the southward and eastward, making it extremely hazardous for- Cap tain Tuttle to continue his work. Admiral Melville is greatly pleased with the char acter of the -work done, and says be thinks Captain Tuttle worthy of .a medal of honor from the Treasury Department, if not from Congress.

CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 2. The bri gands who carried off Miss Helen H. Stone, the American missionary, and her companion, .Mme.

The hiding place of the brigands has not yet .been discovered, and the de lay accorded "by the abductors is taken to indicate that they consider their re treat quite secure. Jolinrm Most Discharged.

The report from Sofia mentioned by the Vienna corres pondent of the Telegraph throws a new light on the abduction of Miss Stone, says the London correspondent of the Tribune. There is every reason to believe that the chief of the. band which carried the woman off to the. mountains was Bous Sarafou, the ex-President of the 'Mace donfan Committee at Sofia. Miss Stone has sent two letters to the mission at Saraakori, wherein' she begs that the robbers- may not be, pursued.

S., Oct 2. The Nova Scotia, provincial elections today resulted in the Liberals carrying every county, except Cumberland. WASHINGTON, Oct 2. An interesting turn was given to the Schley court of inquiry today by the introduction, of the first witness in Admiral Schley's behalf. This was Lieutenant James G. Doyle, who was a watch officer on board the flagship' Brooklyn during the war witn spam. xne fact that Lieutenant Doyle was put on the stand does not mean that the Navy Department has concluded the presenta tion of its side of the case. Mr. Doyle was called by the department, but as it also had been the purpose of Admiral Schley to summon him, advantage was taken of his presence on the stand to question him as an original witness for "the applicant." He was under examin ation by Mr. Raynor In the Interest of the Admiral when the court adjourned for the day. Before undergoing examination at Mr. Raynor's hands, Lieutenant Doyle, at Captain Lemly's request, explained hls part in the battle of July 3, and his orig inal entry in the ship's log concerning the famous loop and his alteration of that entry when he subsequently discovered that his first entry had been erroneous. Lieutenant-Commander Sharp, who commanded the Vixen, during the Span ish War. also gave his testimony during the day, giving especial attention to the notes of" the battle of July 3 made by Lieutenant Harlow, of his ship. Admiral Evans, Captain SIgsbee and Correspond ent Dleuaide were all recalled for the purpose of correcting their testimony, as given yesterday, and all made additional statements. Just before the adjournment for the day, the court announced Its de cision not to allow any questions concern ing the blockade of Santiago after July 1, when the Commander-in-Chief, Admir al Sampson, arrived there. The Proceedings. The formalities of the day were begun with a brief explanation of the - large chart of the southern coast of Cuba. This explanation was made by Captain Lemly, who said that the chart had been prepared from data collected since the war with Spain, and was much more correct than former charts. Captain Par ker, on behalf of Admiral Schley, said he "was willing to accept the chart as au thentic. Admiral Evans appeared for the purpose of -inaklng corrections iiubls testlBiony of yesterday. Having made these correc tions,' Admiral Evans rose and formally addressing the court, said: "May It please the court, in connection with the question asked me yesterday, unless Admiral Schley objects I will withdraw it and stop." Mr. Raynor Could we look at the let ter? "Certainly," handing It to Mr. Raynor. "It Is a matter entirely personal to me, sir. The way the question was put to me yesterday put me in the position of having bragged of destroying the whole identical words were used in a letter pur porting to come from the Brooklyn, and published in a Washington newspaper of July 25, 1898. I immediately went to the editor of the paper to ascertain the au thor of such a letter, and he ascertained that it was a woman who had given, the Information. At the same time I wrote to Captain Cook, of the Brooklyn, en closing the article, and there is his reply. I should like that letter to go in the' testimony in connection with the testi mony, as the words are the identical words used in this scurrilous letter pub lished In the newspaper." Mr. Raynor I-do not object to any ex planation at all that you may make. There was nothing wrong In the ques tion itself. Admiral Evans The question was put to me as if I had stated I had "shot the bow off the Pluton, raked the Theresa, knocked out the Furors etc." There Is Captain Cook's letter :denylng that such a conversation took" place. Mr, Raynor The point is whether the conversation was between you and Com modore' Schley. Mr. Raynor said he would object to" the presentation of the letter at this time, but not when Captain Cook Is on the stand. , . Admiral Evans I withdraw it. Mr. Raynor I am perfectly willing you shall submit it at the proper time. After some further colloquy the incident closed. v- Mr. Thomas M. Dleuaide, the newspaper correspondent, made an unimportant cor rection of his testimony of yesterday. Yeoman Becker was then recalled and was excused after brief questioning con cerning the dispatches prepared by him at Key West for Admiral Sampson for Commodore Schley. Commander of the Vixen. Lieutenant-Commander Alexander M. , Sharp, who commanded the converted yacht vixen during tne spanisn war, was the first new witness of the day. He tes tified that he had first fallen in with the flying squadron the morning of May 24 off Cienfuegos. He said that the weather on the cruise from Cienfuegos to Santiago had been "squally," but not sufficiently bad to interfere with the speed of the Vixen. The vessel had not, he said, been In urgent need of cbal May 26. "If I had been," he said, "and received orders to coal, I should have tried to do so, though It would have been an uncomfort able job .because the Vixen was a very, small ship." Commander Sharp said that notwith standing he had been on board the Brook lyn several times, Commodore Schley had never discussed with him the retrograde movement toward Key West begun May 26. Describing the service of the Vixen dur ing the siege of Santiago under Commo dore Schley, Commander Sharp said that he had been on packet duty at the east ern end of the line on May 29 and had con tinued this duty afterward.. He was about two or three miles from the mouth of, the harbor. Mr. Hanna Could you have seen a ves sel undertaking to pass out near the shore under those conditions? "If she had shown no lights and made no noise, I do not believe we could." Commander Sharp said that the Vixen had carried Commodore Schley from the Brooklyn tp the Massachusetts May 31 before the beginning of the bombardment of the Cristobal Colon, and that when he had asked what course he should pursue In the approaching action, Lieutenant Sears had replied for the Commodore that the latter had directed that Commander Sharp Keep his craft clear, j as she was vulnerable and should not assume any risks. Mr. Hanna Passing on to the battle of July 3, did you see any portion of the loop made by the Brooklyn? "When I first saw the Brooklyn I think she was headed about south and swinging very-rapidly under her port helm." "Did you at any time have any conver sation with any person in the presence of Commodore Schley with respect to the di rection in which the Brooklyn turned on that occasion?" "Yes, sir." "State the circumstances of that con versation." "I took on board the Brooklyn a copy of the notes taken by Lieutenant Harlow, executive officer of the Vixen, during the engagement, and showed them to the Commodore. Captain Cook was there, I think, at one time. The navigator of the Brooklyn, Lieutenant Hodgson, came In also. I think Commander Eaton and Cap tain Barker were In at one time. I was talking to the Commodor6 about those notes, and at one part of the conversa tion, on the way. the helm of the Brook lyn had been put to form the so-called loop I stated that the helm was put to port. Lieutenant Hodgson spoke up and said: 'No, you are mistaken; helm was put to starboard.' I said, 'No, no, you put your helm to port.' " "Was it conceded finally," asked Cap- FROM ALL AMERICA Triennial Convention of the Episcopal Church. SERMON BY BISHOP MORRIS Oregon Has the Honor of Having the Senior Attending Bishop Strik ing Feature o the Ceremonies Was March of Dignitaries. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 2. The tri ennial convention of the Episcopal Church of America was formally organized today by the election of Bishop Dudley, of Ken tucky, as president, and Rev. S. Hart, of service was protracted until quite a late hour, no one left the church until it was concluded, and then with only expres sions of commendation. During the noon recess the drawing for seats in the hall took place. The result caused some dissatisfaction, as some prominent delegates were thrown Into obscure positions, New York and Penn sylvania especially obtaining poor posi tions. This, however, was remedied later. Afternoon Session. It was nearly 4 o'clock this afternoon when Rev. Dr. Hutchings, secretary of the last house, brought the convention to order, and called the roll. As was ex pected, the results showed a large at tendance of both clergy and laity, though many new names were heard; still, there were such old members to answer to their names as Dr. Huntington, Dr. John Ful ton, Dr. Hodges, Dr. Grear, Dr. Fair, Dr. Bralnard, Dr. Flsk, Dr. McKim, Dr. Mackay-Smlth, Dr. Cameron Mann, Major Hooper, E. L. Davis, R. T. Paine, S. H. Morehouse, Hon. J. M. Woolworth, Cort land Parker, J. Plerpont Morgan, W. B. Cutting, George C. Thomas, John H. Stl ness and Judge L. B. Prince.

"Were there any instructions, at that time to the navigator in regard to the -entries in the log?" "Not that I .remember." "Did you see the Texas during the bat tleoff Santiago?" .asked Mr. Hanna. Position 'of the Texas. "I saw the Texas about the first time I saw the Brooklyn," responded the wit ness. "She was southward to westward of the Brooklyn. The Texas was then apparently lying dead in the water. I remarked to some officers standing near: 'The ship will never start, and those fel lows will get away.' The Brooklyn was then swinging around toward the Spanish fleet." "How near was he to the Texas?" "I could, not give an estimate of the distance." On ( cross-examination Commander Sharp was 'questioned In great detail by Cap tain Parker in regard to the en tries, in .the log of the Brooklyn for the period' covering the Cuban' campaign. He re ferred to the entries concerning the Vix en's firing upon a locomotive engine on shore near Santiago, taking It for a gun boat. He elicited from the witness the -statement that at the time .the Vixen musf have been very near the shore. Captain Parker then questioned Com mander Sharp concerning the notes made" of the battle of July 3 by Lieutenant Harlow, on board the Vixen. This, report has occasioned no little controversy,! if being claimed by. some of Admiral Schley's friends that after a copy of the notes was delivered to the Admiral (then Com modore) by Commander Sharp they were changed somewhat. The witness said that he had taken a carbon copy to the Com modore after the battle Mlddletown, Conn., secretary of the house of bishops; Dr. John S. Lindsay, of Massa chusetts, as chairman, and Rev. Charles Hutglilngs, secretary of the House of Deputies., No other business of Import ance was" transacted during the first busl-' ness session of the convention, which did not assemble until late in the afternoon. The Initial service's in connection with the convention were held this morning at Trinity " Church, where the delegates will hold all of their sessions. Trinity is one of the finest religious edifices on the Pacific Coast, though a number of complaints have been made in regard to its acoustics. The most striking feat ure of the ceremonies, and one that will long be remembered by all who witnessed it, was the solemn procession of bishops attired in their gorgeous raiments. The morning was cloudy, and a downpour of rain at the time first fixed for the ser vice led to the report that this Impressive outdoor feature would be omitted. The clouds lifted, however, shortly before 11 o'clock, and the original programme was carried "out. 'Thousands 'of people crowd ed the adjacent streets, and, although the sidewalk surrounding the church -was .inclosed with wire rope, the ser vices' of a squad of police were required to prevent any'encroachment on, the route of" the procession. About 75 bishops par ticipated, and In their robes of office made an Imposing spectacle. After the prelates had - entered the sacred edifice the laity followed, and In a few mom ents there was scarcely standing room to be found, although extra galleries had been erected for the occasion. ' TW services, marking the religious con secration of the convention, were simple but 'Imposing. The holy communion was served, Bishop Tuttle, of Missouri, being the celebrant. Bishop Morris' Sermon. The Epistle was read by Bishop Doane, of Albany, N. Y., and the Gospel by Lord Governor Gage Acted as Intermedin ary in Bringing Ahont the Settle ment of the Controversy, Which, Has Been on for Ten Weeks. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 2. The team sters and longshoremen's strike, which has been on for the past 10 weeks, was settled this afternoon. While ttie terms of the settlement have not been made public, it is understood that the Dray men's Association has guaranteed to fill all vacancies with union men. Nonunion, men now employed are to be retained. The association also guarantees the union men that the present schedule of wages, hours and overtime is to be maintained for one year. It Is also said to be stipu lated that teamsters are to obey all or ders relating to the disposition of freight. The Draymen's Association alleges that the question of the recognition of union ism, is provided for In the settlement and that It has won every point con tended for. The stipulation that present wagc3 will be maintained for a year Is considered a. concession to the strikers. Governor Gage acted as an Intermediary in bring ing about a settlement of the contro versy. When the news was made public this afternoon a wave of relief swept over the city, t is expected that a largo number of men will return to work to morrow. The machinists strike, which has been on since last May, is not included In tho settlement "Do these notes state the truth of the Bishop of Newcastle.

"I have." delivered by Bishop Wistar Morris, of Portland, .Or., the senior attending bishop.

"Not that I remember. There were sev eral copies printed, but what became of all of them I do not know." "Did you take a copy or send a copy to any other commanding officer or staff officer of that fleet, except Commodore Schley?" "Not that I remember." "Will you say that you did not?" "No, sir; I will not say that I did not. To the best of my knowledge and belief I did not, of these Identical notes." Developed Shore Batteries. Commander Sharp said in response to questions by Mr. Raynor that one of the results of the bombardment of the Colon had been to develop the Spanish shore batteries. Mr. Raynor then asked: "Do you recol lect a conversation with Commodore Schley after the Colon recognizance, in the presence of Lieutenant Harlow, in said. "It Is for the furtherance of this work by the use of the best means that the members of the convention are gath. ered here In this, to the most of them, far-off part of the country. As a resi dent of the Pacific Coast for 30 years, I feel that I can speak as one who knows Its needs and Its promises and Is aware", of the slackness of the church In coming out to possess this good land." The bishop quoted from a speech lately delivered by President Roosevelt at Den ver, In which the then Vice-President showed how slow the statesmen of tho earlier days of our country's history were to realize that the great West was to be come an Inhabited and civilized land with in any reasonable period. This ignorance was reflected in the church. Opportuni ties were neglected because of it, and tho consequent loss to the church is Irrepar able. Speaking of the suggestion from some quarter that the missionary organization needs reconstructing, the bishop placed himself on record as an unbeliever In the necessity of radical reorganization. He said he dlcr not believe the church ever had a more efficient missionary adminis tration than at present. "It Is the old story," he added, "of and, after expressing the general regret of everyone that Dr. Morgan Dlx was not present and could not be unanimous ly re-elected, as he certainly would be, placed the Rev. William Huntington, of New-York, In nomination. Dr. Hodges, qf Maryland, nominated the Rev. John sr Lindsay, of, Massachusetts, and was seconded by I"h- Fulton. Other nomina tions werer Dr: Cameron Mann, Dr. Dav enport and Dr. Reese F. Alsop. In a neat speech, Dr. Huntington declined the nomlnatioii, and then several delegations announced that they would support Dr. Lindsay, whose election followed by a de cisive majority. During the balloting the deputies renewed old acquaintances and discussed matters to come before the eonvention. At 10 minutes to five the "tellers announced the result of the ballot as follows: The whole number of votes cast was 350. Rev. Dr. Lindsay had 234 votes; Dr. Mann, 55; Dr. Davenport, 33, and Dr. Al sop, 23. The secretary, therefore, declared that Dr. Lindsay had been elected president of the House of Deputies. On being escort ed to the chair, Dr. Lindsay expressed his high appreciation of the honor con ferred upon him. and of the responsibil ities of the position, especially when it is remembered that it Is to succeed a man of such rare qualities as Dr. Mor gan Dlx a man of such dignity, such graclousness, such delicate sense of hu mor, such absolute fairness. He spoke of the significance of this being the first convention on the Pacific Coast and urged that It make the most of the time of its session In devising schemes and passing laws for the furtherance of the church in our country. Dr. Lindsay's words made a distinctly good impression. The Rev. Dr. Hutchings was unan mously re-elected secretary of the house. On motion of Dr. Fulton, the committee on rules was Instructed to report as soon as possible the matters of chief Import ance that are to come before the house, and such order of precedents as It might suggest for consideration. This was sub stituted for a resolution submitted -by Dr. Huntington, which would have made a report on the new constitution the first order of business for tomorrow. The Honse of Bishops. In the House of Bishops, Bishop Dud ley, of Kentucky, was elected chairman, and Dr. Samuel Hart, secretary. Bishop Tuttle presented the Right Rev. Dr. Jacob, Lord Bishop of Newcastle, who responded In his own behalf and also presented a greeting from tho Archbishop of Canterbury. The House of Bishops passed a resolu tion suggesting a joint committee to pre pare an order of business for this ses sion, with a view of getting the most Important matters promptly and sys tematically before the convention In both houses and preventing their working at cross purposes A memorial is to be presented to the convention from the missionary jurisdic tion of Olympia, Western Washington, praying for the election of another mis sionary bishop rather than the adoption of any plan for reuniting the jurisdiction with that of Spokane, Eastern Washing ton.

"I really do not remember," -was the response. "I wish I could."

On re-direct examination Captain Lemly brought out the fact as to the change in the Harlow notes. (Concluded on Second Page.) the blame Instead of taking it home to ourselves.
