WASHINGTON, Nov. C.Tlic cllmnx of
the Schley court of Inquiry came this aft

for AiIiiiIi'hI Schley, concludel h brilliant
argument of over three linum with a pcror

This remarkable trlnl, be said, sought
to condemn tho tnnii who had In ought In
11 wiiccotHf ill termlnntlon ns great a imviil
triumph hb whb ever won. In vivid colors
hn painted the picture of llrooklyn with
Commodoro Schley on the bridge fighting
the entire Spnnlsh fleet until the Oregon
appeared out of the smoke, The thunders

countrymen, ho said, Aroused Admlrnl

for three long years whllo tho fires of per

"And when It comes," ho concluded, "ho
can, from tho high and exalted position
that he occupies, look down upon his trn
duceru nnd raallgncr and with excellent
pride exclaim 'I earn not for the venomous
gossip of clubs, drawing rooms nnd cliques
nnd tho poisoned shafts of envy And of
innllcc. I await tinder tho guidance of
Divine providence tho verdict of poster
The scene In the courtroom as ho finished
with these w,ords was thrilling. The at
lendanco had been largo all day nnd at
the morning session a woman had fainted
from excltemont. Ah Mr. tlaynor began hi
eulogy of Admiral Schley thoso In tho
audience, many of whom were women,
leaned forward In their scats. Tho spell of
hla oratory wan over them and when he do
crlbed the admiral's gallant deeds and tho
long persecution to which he had been
ubjected many of them broke down and
I'loqticnce llnvm the four.
The members of,ihe court dUplnycd evi
dences nf emotion. nnd Admiral Sohley him
self -was pmTnly "moved, He sat, loaning
hack, wltb his hands behind his head. Ills
chin twitched and as his counsel paid ho
could nffonl to a wo lb the verdict of pos
tcrlty, twb big toars rolled down bis cheeks.
Ho moved uneasily to conceal his emotion
nnd under tho pretense of adjusting his
glasses, brushed the tears aside. For fully
thirty seconds after Mr. llayner closed
hero was not a sound. Then tho tonslon
broke In a loud burst of applause
Admiral Dewey, after about halt a. min
ute, aroso to remind tho spectators that
tfuch a demonstration was out of place.
A moment afterward the court adjourned,
the Judgo advocate pleading that ho coul.l
not well go on toduy. Then another re
markabln thing happened. Ab soon as the
gavel fell the entire nudlenco surged for
ward to shnko tho handa ot Admiral Schley
nnd Mr. Rayncr.
Tint tho oncoming spectators fell back a
moment as they saw Admiral Dewey nnd
Ms two assistants niovo around tho table,
s If by common Impulse, and conguitulato
Admlrnl Schley and his counsel. Kven
Captliln Lcmly, the Judgo advocate, cami
forward to Join In tho congratulations
Then tho public had Its Inning and for
fifteen minutes after tho court adjourned
Admiral Schley and Mr. Earner wero kept
busy shaking hands.
A moment Ore up I en the liny.
Mr, Rayner'a argument today consumed
tho whole day ot tho court, except tor halt
an hour At the opening, which Captain
Tarkcr, his associate counsel, occupied In
Mr. Rayncr took up the specifications, one
by one, reserving those relating to the
rctrogado movement until the last. So far
us hn was able to do so he used tho testi
mony of tho department's witnesses to
prove, his contentions. With regard to the
retrograde movement, which he discussed
with greater seriousness than tho other
specifications, lie adduced In Justification
not only all at Admiral Schlcj's reasons
for not believing the Spanish fleet in San
tiago, but argued that every officer charged
.with command necessarily must be clothed
with discretion in carrying out Instruc
tions, Ho displayed good temper In ad
verting to the testimony ot most ot tho
officers,, especially the ranking officers, who
Accrued to contradict hlH client, giving them
In each caso credit for honesty of purpose,
but with a few hn dealt unsparingly,' Polls,
ind Hrlstol he held up to ridicule.
Captain I.cmly will begin tho closing ar
gument tomorrow afternoon, ns the court
will not hold u fcssIou tomorrow morning.
Captain Parker talked for twenty-five
minutes nnd was followed by Mr. Itaynbr.
Captain Parker maintained that the block
ade ot Santiago was cITectlve. He defended
Commodoro Schley's reuonnolssanco ot May
31, mylng ha had acted wisely In determin
ing the actual conditions. In this linn, ot
policy ho Halt! that Commodore Schley's
conduct was paralleled by that of Admiral
Dewey In Asiatic waters when the latter re
mained for stiveral days In Mlrs bay. Re
garding the loop mndo by llrooklyn Captain
Parker declared it 'was (ho wisest movement
that could havo been made. All talk about
Brooklyn going to the southward he char
acterized as "moonshine."
Itnyner Mtnrl Pebley'a Tenm.
Mr, Rayncr began bis argument at 11::'
in. Ho paid n compliment to Judge Ad
vocate I.cmly and hla assistant, Mr, Hannj,
for tho "most Judicial Impartiality with
which they have managed this case," Mr.
Ray'uer made a plea for the consideration
ot questions from what was at that time
Commodore Scbloy's point of view. "Lot
lis," be said, "put oursolves in his place
nnd see what the circumstances were then.
We nil know now what It would havo been
wise to do."
Mr Rayncr referred satirically to tho
testlmouy of Lieutenant flrlstol, saying
CINCINNATI. Nov, Ci Unofficial returns
received here from eighty-one of tin eighty
eight counties In Ohio show a plurality
for Nash, rep., for governor of f5,2l!l. The
seven counties not heard frcm cave Nush
two years ago a plurality of 3,878. Assum
ing that this plurality will bo the same this
year Nash's total plurality In the state
"tould be 01,126.
r f'm.t'Mllt'U n Vm I- tain Innlolll
Chairman Dick of the republican state com
mittee had the returns from eighty-six
counties in Ohio, with only two missing,
nnd tbo two missing counties were esti
mated from the newspaper reports? with tho
Slxty-lwo counties have republican plu
ralities aggregating 00.84U. Twenty-sit
rountles havo democratic pluralities aggre
gating 23.170. making the plurality of Nush
over KlllioiiniR for governor 67.661, nnd
approximating Mi.000 plurality for other
candidates on the republican state ticket.
Tho total vote will not exceed 1100,000, but
It will not be known exactly until the vote
Is counted officially. '
The plurality for Governor Nash cxccedi
that of two years ugo, when he was elected
by 29,123, and the nctunl plurality of tho
candidates on the rrpubllran stnte ticket
grently exceeds that for president last year.
when McKlnlcy nnd Roosevelt had a plu
rality In Ohio of 60,030.
The republicans elected sixty-eight repre
sentatives nnd the democrats forty-two. Tho
senate stunds twenty-ono republicans nnd
twelve democrnts. Tho republican majority
on Joint ballot for United States senator Is
thlrt). The official count will not change
these figures on the political complexion ot
COLL'MIIUS, Nov. C With almost com
plete returns In tonight It Is noted that
the republican plurality beats nil records
InAvhat has become known as the "quad
rennial off yenr" and with two exceptions
the records ot other years. On the off
yenrs, or thovo following n presidential
election, tho democrats have generally car
ried Ohio, tho exceptions being In 1881.
after the death of Oarneld, and In 1883 nnd
18'J3, after the Cleveland elections.
In two of Iheso three, exceptional yenrs
tho president was n democrat nnd those
wero considered off yenrs, for tho demo
crats. With tho single exception of Hond
ley in 18X3 the democrats nover electod a
governor of Ohio In any otljcr than off
yenrs since the republican party was or
ganized and then they won on n local Issue
of liquor taxntlom
Wherever local Issues were pnrnraotiat
this year tho republicans sustained losses,
notably nt Columbus, on account ot local
option, and at Cleveland on account ot
Mayor Johnson's agitation ot "taxation Inequalities."
Whero no such conditions were con
fronted the republicans made gnlns. They
carried some democratic counties that
novor before were represented by repub
licans. The state was carried on national Is
sues, Involved In the support of President
Roosevelt nnd the endorsement ot Senator
Foraker for ro-clcctlon. In Interviews
Senator Hanna, Governor Nash and Chair
man Dick ot the republican side And Mr
Kllbourne, Chairman Daugherty 'and Secre
tary Gilliam on the democratic Ride, agree,
that the result was duo to the trend of
sentiment on iintlonnl affairs. None ot
these leaders or others interviewed on the
result referred to the silver question as a
factor In tho contest.
Chairman Daugherty ndded with empha
sis; "I bcllcvo tho republican success Is
due tq the assassination of McKlnlcy nnd
tho prevailing prosperty."
Secretary Gilliam said: "Tho sympathy
nroused by McKlnley's death, Just before
the election, removed tint Antagonism
which alwnys exists among tho opposition
to the Administration. Undoubtedly we
wero grently handicapped by our inability
to go upon tho stump nnd crltlclso tho
policies of tbo administration."

rep., for governor, 31,741; Kllbourne, dem.,

PEKIN, Nov. 7. LI Hung Chang dltd at
11 o'clock this morning.
The physicians who visited LI Hung
Chang nt 10 o'clock last night found him
In good spirits, but extremely weak, ns a
result of sitting up nnd working In defiance
of their Instructions. When they rolled
this morning they found him unconscious
and t Inking rapidly. It was announced at
noon that LI Hung Chang could hardly live
three hours longer.
llurlHl Clothe Put On.
The burial clothes have" already been put
on. The courtynrd of the yanicn Is filled
with life-size paper horses and chairs, with
coolie, bearers, which his friends are send
ing to be burled with LI Hung Chang, In
order to carry his soul to heaven. Several
of tho mnlsters of the powers have called
to express sympathy.

The Chinese officials nre Homewhat un
easy concerning the effect his death will
have on the populace, and to guard against
a possible anti-foreign demonstration the
Chinese generals have disposed of their
troops about tho city In such a way as to
command the situation. Trouble, however,
Is extremely Improbable.
The wife of Earl Li and Ills two sons and
daughter arc with him. Thoy nre greatly
Chlncso officials throng the ynmen. Telo
grams have been sent summoning Prince
Chlng, who Is now on his way to meet tho
court, nnd Chou Ku, provincial treasurer,
from Pno Ting Fu. The former will as
sume tho general charge ot governmental
affairs and the latter will act ns governor

In that office, who will probably be Yuan

Robert Coltmun, an American, who Is one
ot tho physicians Attending Karl LI, told the
Associated Press today that when he wan
called he found the patient very weak
from a sevcro hemorrhage, duo to ulcera
tion ot the stomach.
The hemorrhage was readily controlled,
sntd Dr. Coltraan, but owing to tho under
lying condition of chronic gastritis only
'the mildest liquid fond could bo taken.
Yesterday he was cheerful and without
pain, but at 2 o'clock this morning he be
came unconscious and Was no longer able
to get rid of tbo collection of mucous which
ho hail been freely expectorating. Death was
expected Bhortly, owing to symptoms super
vening upon grndual carbonic acid poison-In:
Throughout the evening digitalis was
frenuently administered., ' EarJ, LLs per
slsteiit refusals to refrain from attending
to government business aggravated his mal
ady, while the refusal of the family to per
mit certniu measures customary In western
raedlcnl practice for relieving the stomach
contributed to bring his end near.
I nlted Stated' Interest.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 6. The death of
this distinguished Chinaman will not,
It Is believed here, effect tho ex
ecution ot the undertakings Imposed upon
China, in tho protocol. Certainly tho
United States' Interests will not bo Involved
directly, for all that remains to be dono
nt Pckln In which our government is in
terested ff the preparation of trado and
commercial treaties and their linos have
been so clearly marked that tho work lo be
done Is almost mechanical and is not llkoly
to be retarded by LI Hung Chang's death.
A change tn tho Mnnchurlan situation is
likely on the death ot LI Hung Chang and
the United States has a very considerable
Interest In thu outcome ot that matter. LI
Hung. Chang Is regarded here as strongly
pro-Russian and It is possible that his
death and tho coming Into power In China,
as tho director of foreign affairs, of another
prince, less friendly to Russia, might hasten
the day when Russia must, rciax us noiu
upon Manchuria and allow the country to
bo opened up to the commerce of me world

tho Harrlman syndicate and by James J.

however, and It Is possible some ot tlie main
features may be slightly modified. It Is ex

Tho principal features of the settlement
plan nre tlii reorganization ot the stock

The latter proposition, was tho one on which

In the new stockholding company, by
