WASHINGTON, Nov. 1. The hands' of
the elongated antique timepiece which
stands against the wall In the hall occu
pied by the Schley court of Inquiry pointed
to 12:45 today when Judge-Advocate Lemly
announced that he had no more witnesses
to call, and Mr. Raynor said that no
witnesses would be summoned on behalf
of Admiral Schley In sur-rebuttal. For a
moment It appeared as if the now famous
case was about to reach a sudden conclu
sion. But this delusion was soon dissi
pated by the announcement on the part ot
the Judjre-AdVOCat that ho mltr-hf nalr tn
be allowed to bring In one more witness
Monday, and also a statement from Mr.
Raynor that Admiral Schley himself
would desire to return to the stand Mon
day to correct errors in his testimony as
There is a probability that the Admiral
will use considerable time in going over
the printed record of what he said, and
thero s also an understanding that he
will make some additions to the former
statements.. But It Is not believed that
beyond what he may have to say there
will be much more testimony taken In the
case. The only witness that the Judge
Advocate still has In mind is Lieutenant
Strauss, and Captain Lemly said today
that If the Lieutenant's attendance could
b secured, he would detain the court for
a short time only. Captain SIgsbee also
Will return to the stand Mondav tn mnlrn
corrections In the testimony given yester
day by him. These details completed, the
argument of counsel will begin, and then
counsel and the public will -withdraw and
leave the court to its deliberations. Tho
task before the court Is not a light one
and It may be weeks before the final ver
dict will be reached.
Today's witnesses -were Svlvwitpp Rr-
vel, a newspaper correspondent who saw
service In the Cuban campaign; Lieuten
ant Hood, who commanded the Hawk dur
ing the Spanish War, and also a number
of officers who were heard yesterday and
whoreturned to the stand to correct tes
timony. The court held only one session
and adjourned over until Monday.
The attendance in court today was the
smallest since the sessions began. Com
paratively few of the reserved seats were
occupied at the beginning of today's sit
ting, and Lieutenant Crawford, Admiral
Dewey's private secretary, -who has han
dled the distribution or tickets -ontvi wn
tact. Invited those present to the front
when he discovered that the seats would
not be claimed by ticket-holders, thu3
giving the court an audience and at the
same time affording the chancevlsltors a
good opportunity to hear the proceedings.
Admiral SchleV WAS in th onnrtr
half an hour before proceedings began and
speaking of the correction of his testi
mony next week said:
"There were five whole days of it, and to
go over it and make the necessary correc
tions is no light task."
It Is probable that he will have some
thing more to say concerning his interview
on May 18 with Admiral Sampson, rela
tive to which Captain Chadwlck spoke
How long the court may take to
consider the evidence is entirely prob
lematical. The members of the tribunal
are evidently preparing to davote con
siderable time to the consideration of the
testimony, for they have taken rooms in
the city for this purpose. The testimony
covers 1600 printed pages, and the 'court
sat 36 days in listening to It With the
additions yet to be' made in the way of
argument and documents the record prob
acy win run over 1700 pages.
Order of Argument.
Judge-Advocate Lemly announced that
counsel had agreed on the order of the
speeches in closing the case, subject to the
sanction of the court. Mr. Hanna is to
open ior the department He will be fol
lowed by Captain Parker and Mr. Raynor
for Admiral Schley, and Judge-Advocate
Lemly will close for the department Ad
miral Dewey announced that this arrange
ment was satisfactory to the court
Captain Lemly then brought up the
question of the character of the argument
to be made, saying:
"I would like for my own information
to ask the Instructions of the court as
to whether or not we are expected in the
closing argument to confine ourselves to
the evidence and to the scope of the pre
cept as defined by the court I mean the
arguments made by both counsel for the
applicant and by my associate and my
self. Mr. Raynor-Of course, in making an
argument we won't pretend to refer to
anything not in the record. We are bound
by that, but I do not trant to have any
more restrictions placed upon my argu
ment than I would In any other court. 1
-want the constitutional right' to argue this
case within proper bounds and with great
respect to everybody concerned, but to
make criticisms as they appear proper to
me. or to make comment If I should find

The First Witness.
Sylvester Scovil was then called as the
first witness of the day. He said that
while on the press boat Somers N.
Smith as a newspaper correspondent,
on May 27 or 2S. it came up with
the St. Paul. Of Which f'nntnJn lro
bee wae In command, off Santiago. There
was a conversation With Captain SIgsbee
through the megaphone, and he himself
had used the megaphone in conducing tho
Interview. The witness said the Somers
N. Smith was about 75 or 100 feet from
the St Paul during the conversation.
"Give us as nearly as you can the words
of that conversation." said Captain
"We had been sent to find Commodore
Schley, and the flr&t question of course
was, 'Where is Schley?" and the answer
from Captain SIgsbee was, 'You will' find
him In the Yucatan Passage,' and then,
inasmuch as our boat was- very slow. I
asked him to advise me whether he
thought we could catch Commodore
Schley If we followed him, and he stated
"The second question was, 'Where Is
ccrvera?' and In answer to that Captain
aigsDce aia not speak for a moment He
consulted with somebody on the bridge
-of "the ship, and then answered: 'I am
not sure, but we caught an English col
lier trying to sneak into the harbor this
morning.' That was all the conversation
I remember to have had with Captain
SIgsbee personally. Other men on the
boat had eome conversation with him."
"Did Captain SIgsbee during any time
of the conversation inform yqu that tho
Spanish squadron was not In Santiago?"
"He did not tell us that the Spaniards
-were not In there."
On cross-examination Mr. - Scovil said
that he had been at the megaphone a
part of the time. He could not say wheth
er others on board the press boat had
talked, with Captain SIgsbee.
"Then," asked Mr. Raynor, "are you
prepared to say on your oath, that no one
in your boat asked Captain SIgsbee wheth
er Cervera was not In the harbor at San
tiago?" "It is possible," was J;hc reply, "that a
conversation might have taken place on
the part of -some one else, but as the
smitn was a small boat and as conver
sation must necessarily be in a loud tone
of voice, I think I would have heard it if
there had been any." -
."Are you then prepared to say that the
testimony of Mr. Hare, In which he fiald
that Captain SIgsbee had said that the
Spaniards were not at Santiago, is false?"
"No. I am not nreoared to sav that his
statement is false, and that no such con
versation took place but I can swear that
nothing of the kind was said while I was

ed to the giving ot opinions.
Captain Chadwlck was then excused and
Lieutenant John Hood, who commanded
t th Hawk during- ..ie Spanisn War, was

"Hood says a good many officers do not

In reply to a question as to what report
he had made on which such a memoran

replied: v ,
"I reported to the commanding officer
of the Dolphin that I had conversed with
a number of officers, and that I did not

men killed and 160 -wounded.. Following is
the text of Lord Kitchener's dispatch,
dated Pretoria, October 31:
'T have "Just heard of a severe attack
made on the rearguard of Colonel Ben
son's column, when about 20 miles north
west of .Bethel, near Broken Laagte, dur
ing a thick mist The strength of the
enemy is reported to have, been 1000. They
-rushed two guns with the rear guard, but
It is uncertain whether they were able to
remove them. I.fear'our casualties were
heavy. Colonel Benson was wounded, but
not seriously A relieving column will
reach him this morning."
Later, Lord Kitchener telegraphed as
"Colonel Barton, who marched from tne
constabulary line yesterday, reached Ben
son's column, early this .'morning (Friday)
unopposed. He reports that Colonel Ben
son aiea of his wounds. The other casual
ties are the following:
"Killed Colonel Guinness., Major F. D.
Murray, Captains M. W. Lindsay and t
T. Thorould. Lieutenants E: V. I. Brooks
and R. E. Shepherd and Second Lieuten

Captain Eyre LI 6yd."
Lord Kitchener then gives the names or
13 other officers who were wounded, most
of- them srlou3ly, and then announces
that 31 noncommissloner officers and men
were killed and 1G0 wounded, adding that
four of the latter have since died of their
wounds. The dispatch then says:
"I assume that the two guns have been
recovered and the enemy has withdrawn,
but I have no further details. I deeply

led hlj column with marked success and

quarters, and maintained with determina

heavily, but I have not yet received a

Colonel Benson had been for some time
operating in the vicinity of Bethel, which
is northeast of Standerton. He surprised
a Boer laager, October 22, near Trichards
fonteln, taking 37 prisoners. Three days
later, according to Lord Kitchener's re
pdrt at the time, after a long night march,
the commandoes under Grubelaar and
Erasmus heavily attacked Benson's rear
guard and flanks at Yzirvarkfontein, but
were easily driven away. Whether this
was the attack which resulted so disas

been repulsed took advantage of the mist
to reattack is unexplained. Lord Kitch

at the next session. Secretary Long has
before him the recommendations of the
board of naval construction looking to the
authorization by Congress vof the building
of 40 more vessels of classes from 'battle-ships
down to tugboats. The plans
for the two armored cruisers and two bat-tle-hips
projected by "Congress last ses
sion already have been prepared, and,
look to the construction of 16.000-ton bat-

Two colliers of about lo.OOO tons.
One repair ship of about 7500 tons.
Six training-ships qf about 2000 ton3.
Four picket boats of about K0 tons.
While the above appears to be a startling
amount of naval construction to rerom

after all, nearly a repetition of the pro
gramme submitted to that body through
Secretary Long by the construction board
last year, and is even smaller than tho
aggregate tonnage proposed to be au

In each case it is explained the recom

they declare that the symmetrical Navy
finally provided would be very much more
effective than the more numerous navies
of several of the European states.

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 1. Wu Ting
Fang, Chinese Minister at Washington,
delivered an address before 4000 students
of the- university here tonight on "The
Tendencies of the Times." He said in
"I fully appreciate the excellence of your
Political, economical And pflllpntlnnnl ovs-
tems. Too much cannot be said in praise
of the founders of this country for their
foresight; but, excellent as are the sys
tems founded, they are not yet perfect
ly suited to all tlm.es.
"China, lived too much in Its past I am
sorry for It Her literature and her gov
ernment are relics of the past. They
were all right when China was Isolated,
but in these days of progress are In
adequate for present needs."
Mr. Wu referred to the strife which Is
almost constantly being waged between
capital and labor In this country, and
"It is said that capital Is antagonistic
to labor. Why Is- It so? One Is essential
to the other. Trusts and labor unions
should unite. Why should not disputes
between capital and labor be taken Into
the courts like civil suits for settlement?"
Referring to the Immigration laws of
the United States, Mr. Wu said:
"This country needs restrictive immi
gration laws of general scope, and not
laws that single out one race. The spe
cial laws against Chinese immigration
are the result of Ignorance of the facts.
China has 350,000,000 people, and her Im
mense territory is able to support this
population. All Chinamen love home and
have a horror of traveling abroad. All
Chinamen, except diplomats, who leave
China, come from the Province of Quang
rung, une uninese Darners in this coun
try should be removed."
Mr. Wu said that the treaty of 1SSS was
made to exclude Chinese labor, but sine
then laws had been passed keeping out
Chinese merchants and tradesmen: con
sequently, the high and worthy Chinese
do not get Into this country. Mr. Wu said
