patch was received from Toulon : "Tho
complete Mediterranean squadron re
turned to Toulon last evening and an
chored In the roadstead. "

lard's . division , whose departure has
thus "either been countermanded or
postponed. It Is thought that the gov
ernment has received news from Con
stantinople which has not yet been
divulged and which has induced a
change of plan.

lard had been ordered to cruise within
reach of a dispatch boat for possible
further instructions , and It Is signifi
cant that the torpedo boat destroyer
Halledoublon left Toulon yesterday at
full speed to rejoin the squadron.

morning papers express surprise at
this unexplained move after the dis
patch of Admiral Calllard to the Le
vant had been officially announced.
i The Marseilles correspondent of the
Matin says the return was due to the
fact that the squadron was supplied
with only two days' rations ,
U A dispatch from Toulon to the Fi
garo confirms the report of the return
of the squadron , and adds that Ad
miral Calllard's squadron Is held In

of witnesses were Introduced by Judge
Advocate Lowly to testify In rebuttal
of ( he evidence given In Admiral
Schloy's bohalf. The court decided
early In the day that no wltnAsoa

Immaterial points. This announce
ment was made In connection with an
off oil to prove a conversation on board
the Massachusetts , In which Lieuten
ant Sears , who was Admiral Schley's
flag lieutenant , was reported to Imvo
said : "For God's sake don't , discour
age him ( meaning Commodore Schlt-y ) ,
it's all that wo have been able to dote
to work him up to this. "
It had the effect of relieving Lieuten
ant Commander Grant , Lieutenant
Commander Potts and other officers of
the Massachusetts , who had been
called to testify to this conversation
with Mr. Sears , which Is said to have
H'curred on the Massachusetts just before -
fore the reconnaissance of May 31.

of making additions to former stale-
uents , but that none of them could re-
terate testimony previously given.

cidents connected with the campaign

department In regard to attacking the

was the commander of the dispatch
boat Resolute during the war and his
testimony related largely to events
which occurred just before and just

tenant Commander Southerland had
asked not to be sent to Port
Antonio for coal and had asked to bo
allowed to coal from the Morrlmac.

of the Brooklyn during the Spanish
war and was at the wheel during the
battle of July 3. Ho said that Com
modore Schley had given the order of
