To Hear Admiral W. S. echley, l P. V.
Schley May Challenge.
Scctotary I.oiiff lias always held the
opinion that a Ueniand for an Investl
Brttlon Tas the- piopi-r rouihe for the

himself publicly. The nilmlral's friends

toniposed of naval oilhots ptejudlced
np.Unst him, and that llear-Admlrnl
rrowninshleld, who Is credited with es
pecial hostility to Schley, would prac
tically select the court In his capacity
as chief of the bureau of nmlKatlon.
It can be sald with nut'ioilty that

Secretary T,onpr peisonallv will taKe up

that their tl ml Inns will he accepted by

Ive. No ollleer who has been Known to
express a pronounced opinion loncein
InK tho Sampson-Schley coutioeis)
will be appointed, and in order that the
tear admiral may have evety assurame
of Impaitlal tteatment he will have the
almost unpiecedonted prhiloge of i hitl
lenKliiR: any member who he may he.
Ileve Is In any way antnKonlMlc to him
The impres,sIon heio Is that the coutt
will conblst of AdiuiiHl Dewey nnd

the two latter of whom nte on the
etlrrd list. Admiral Dewey was sent
or by Secietary l.oiiff this moinlnn
tud offered tlie piesldeney of the

'elt that Dew ex's name will tarty

Vdmlials Howell, itam,.j, KaHiuahnr

The court of Inquiry Is to be dlstin
;ulshed from a couit mat Hal. It has
inllmlted powers of linestlKatlon, and

Fourth Tho battle of .Santiago and
the destruction of Oct vein's fleet.
Almost all the oillccif participating
In the opemtlons In Cuban wntcis will
be summoned to testify nnd many civil
ians will also be called, l'cihaps the
question ot veracity between Henr-Ad-mlrnl
Schlev nml Lieutenant Hodgson
will bo cone Into,
The sessions of the point undoubted
ly will be open, although Its members
have the light to pi event that. There
Is no appeal from the decision of tho
t ourt as to the exeluslnon or admission
of testimony, questions arising as to
the lelevnni'V or propriety of which

It Is believed, should Schley he sus
tallied by the lnvestlgatots, that Im
mediately following the finding ot the
cotut a suit for libel will be Insti
tuted against the publishers of Mac

Setietary Long, at the close of ollke
bonis today, said Hint the peisotinel ot
the com t. would he made known to
nioriow, at, which time nKo the piocept
convening the court probably will be
Issued. Meanwhile, theie Is much specu
lation as to the menthols of the couit
other than Admltal Dewey. The secie
tury savs then Is no wntrnnt for the
announcement of any pnttlcuhit name,
ns he still has them under advisement.
He has been making inqtiiiles during
the dnj as to the availability of ceitaln
oIHk-is, and It is undeii stood that some
telegraphic Itiqtlltiert have been made of
these absent olllceis to se If t ncie Is
iinv leason why they should not seie.

ation of the absence of President Shaf
fer and Hecretaty Williams front the
fer and Secietaiy Williams fiom the
given In the following telegiam it
celve'il fiom Wellsvllle tonight.
"Disguised as a elecieplt, half blind
raggeel tl amp. l'tesidenl T. J. Snf
fet, the head of the Amalgamated as
sociation, slipped Into Wellsvllle this
afternoon, lemalnetl hete an hour In
cnnfeieiue with Vice Piesldent Cliap
pell and other cfllli lals and boanled
the tialn at Hast Liverpool to iclurii
to Plttsbiug. Not a half dozen pel -sons
In Wellsvllle tonight knew he had
been theie. On the same ttaln with
.Mr. Shatter fiom Pltsbllig tHiiie nine
non-union men fiom Apollo and Dun
cansville, live of whom evatled the
slilkets' comnilttce and went to woik
In the mill bete, while Hie other four,
after going through an expel leine
with the one bundled stilkers, whit h
at one time seemed likely to end In
violence, agieed not to wenk In the
mill and letutned to I'lttsbiug.
"Piesldent Shaffer would neit state
the object of his mission to Wellsvllle.
It was intimated that be was heie In
outline the policy of the stilkets', In
view of the thlcateiied Injunction pin
teedings. He made this statement
Just before leaving Hast Llveipool:
'Theie will be no Injunction. 1 think
1 have accomplished lntiih. No in
junction will be gianted unless our
men resoit to violence, unless we
coen e and Intimidate men lino ic
maiuing away fiom the mill. Thus
far our men have violated no laws."'
Two Moves Made
Two moves, It Is leported, weie made
by the nggiesslve olllclals of the Amer
ican Sheet Steel company todav lo
waid bieaklng the stiike. uue was
the shipping of some of the non-union
men that have been einplojed In the
Vandegilft mills of Hie company to
Wellsvllle. to issst In the staitllig
of the plant theie II was staled that
the men weie to be shipped to Wells
vllle timing the e.ulv evening, and
would reach theie alter daik. As u
consequence of this report theie Is n
suppressed evlitenietiL ptevalllng at
Wellsvllle. which at any moment may
break out Into u seiious condition.
Iioth strikers and olllclals of the com
pany are nleit and leacly for any
emeigency. The linpiesslon Is stiong
tonight that the geueial otflceis of the
I'nlted States Steed coi poratlou have
become cletet mined on the subject of
nu eaily breaking of the stiike, nnd
to ultimately fence the upeiattou ot
all tho Idle plants.
The second move that Is understood
to have been Initiated today Is tho
starting of the long Idle Hyde Paik
plant of the Ameilcau Sheet Steel
cntnpan.v. This plant was taken Into
the combine, biiidened with the ob
jectionable contiacts made b.v the for
mer owueis, and has remained Idle
since the Aineilcnn Sheet Steel com
pany took hold of the piupeit.v. The
long Idleness of this mill has caused
most of tho men formerly employed
theie to leave Hyde IMik for other
places, untl the company believes there
would be less eiltllculty In stinting this
plant than vvheie the Amalgamated as
sociation has control.
Something Doing.
It was evident In Plttsbiug this even
ing that flesh and decidedly Impnitant
developments) In the stiike of the steel
vvotkeis weie about to take place. At
the Amalgamated headqiiarteis the two
leading olllclals of the aswoilatlon weie
nbsent dining the gi eater pait of the
da). It was dtated that Piesldent
Shaffer was away on private business
and had nothing In hand concerning
the stiike The absence nf Seei.tnry
John Williams vas also accounted for
in Hie same m ninnr. The conference
held on Tuesday night, which kept
Piesldent Shaffer and Secietary Will
iams out until en ily this morning, ie
mains as mysterious as befote. Neither
of these olllclals would give out any
Idea of what hail taken pl.u e, aside
fiom staling positively that they had
not met any of the olllclals ot the 'tilt
ed States Steel coipniatlnn. Whatever
the object of the meeting. It Is believed
to have been continued today and much
Importance Is epected to be developed
fiom the conference.
The question ot the inanufai luieis
see in lug Injunctions against the Amal
gamated atfocliitlnn was discussed
guaidedly dining the clay. Assistant
Secretary M. F. Tlghe said he did not
think the ineasuie would he lesoited
to at this stage of the proceedings, even
If It was contemplated for a later clay.
Those best acquainted with the feel
Ings of the inauufactuieis say there Is,
In their opinion, little cause for believ
ing that Bitch measures will be lesoited
to at this time.
