of making the dosing argument In the
case arid soon after he had completed bin
pccrh Admiral Dewey. bringing his gavel
down upon the hit; flat table, said;
"There being no further business tho
court Is adjourned."
As was the case yesterday, when Mr.
Jlayner spoke, Iho attendance was large.
There was only one session during the dny.
Jt began nt o'tlocl; and the entire tlmo
kub devoted to Captain Lcmly's address.
Jle read his speech In clear and distinct
tones and wnti Riven careful attention. Tho
hpoechMn the main was nn analysts of tho
testimony, but occasionally n conclusion
was drawn and frequently there were criti
cisms of tho course pursued by Admiral
(then Commodore) Schley. Speaking of
Commodore Sc"hley's conduct Captain Lenity
"From my knowledge of the man, liavlng
nerved under his command on two crulhers,
J have never ballovcd, nor do T claim from
tho evidence, that pcrtonul misconduct
or, to call a spade a spade, cowardice
was exhibited by Commodoro Schley In any
part of his career ns comuiander-ln-chlcf
of the flying squadron. Hut ! submit, with
regret, that In the passage from Key West
to Clenfuegos; whllo at the latter port;
enrouto to the southward of Santiago with
out settled destination; In the retrograde
movement; In tho return to tho vicinity of
Hantlago and In the affair of May 31, the
commodore exhibited unsteadiness In pur
pose and failure to obey orders."
Ovntliui for Nclilej
This statement was made. toward the closo
of Captain Lcmly'H remarks. After ad
journment the members of tho court, Ad
miral Schley and counsel lingered for u
time about (he haU In which they recently
have, spent bo niu6h of their tlmo und there
were ninny nffectlonato words of farewell
spoken. Admiral Schley, as usual, was
called upon to receive the greetings of a
number of admirers and a hundred or more
people waited at tho door of the building
to hid him adieu.
Captain Lonily used no formality In be
ginning his ndclrcss whoti tho court con
vened, but, rising quietly from his went
opposite the tribunal, began to read. Ho
H.ild his plan contomplnted, first, a re
sponse to criticisms of Admiral Schley's
counsel, nnd then a presentation of thu
Mibjcct In hand on an Independent basis.
Jle requested to'he corrected If he should

Captain Ieraly said: "With the conclu

Referring to tho McColla signals, ho said
it was clear that Marblohcad had not ar
rived at Key West when tho dying squadron
nlled, and therefore that these signals
rould not have been communicated to Com
modore Schley there. "There Is little
riouht, however," he added, "that if tho
commodore had, upon meeting Marblohend,
directed Commander McCdlla to report on
board tho flagship, ho would have been
fully Informed ns to tho signals, notwith
standing the commander's declared purpose

For a time ho lost consciousness, but ho
showed great tenacity, rallied at midnight,

day, saying that nothing tnoro could bo
done. Ills personal physician, Dr. Watt,
then took charge. The controversy between
tho foreign and Chinese doctors hud no
effect on the patient, because ho was al
ready beyond hope of recovery.
The flames of the procession of paper

were gathered In the narrow street uutHldc

a costly colHn of teakwood beautifully
lacquered. This coflln LI Hung Chang took
on his trip around the world and he brought
It from Canton when he came to Pekln
to settle the "Hoxer" troubles. Since thut
tlmo It had been kept In a temple here.
The body will be placed In the coffin to

ofllclals will pay their respects. A separate
day will bo designated for the ministers
of tho powers.
Tho Interment will be at the birthplace
of the deceased statesman, n little village
In tho province of An Hul. Tho tlmo has
not yet been decided upon.
A memorial was telegraphed to the court
announcing his death and a clrculnr letter

From tho time tho first returns were re

but ns county after county reported It be
came evident that tho size of the victory
hud bocn underestimated from the tlrst re

Ists had always depended upon to pull them
out of tho hole, have only served to add
to the rcpubllcnn majority. With complete

gains which Sedgwick has made In prac
tically every county In the state, If followed

In tho table. It Is an assured fact that his
