P-y Kilult- Wire (mm The Associated Press.
Washington, July 23. Secretary Long
today designated us members of the
Schley court of Inquiry:
Admiral George Dewey, president.
, Rear Admiral Lewis A. Kimberly, re
IIipiI. Roar Admlial K. K. Bonhani, retired.
'I'Iip iliito fixed for the lirst silting of
the court t September 12.
In Mlcctlue Hip lnenibeis of the court
of inquiry ScctPtnry Iong tried to
plums. only olllccis who arc liellpveit to
Iihvp no pniphatlc opinions with regard
to the Sampson-Schley controversy.
The members of Hip court hip distinctly
fighting men. Knch lias lieen connected
Willi a celebrated event In naval annals.
Secretary Long says that the pro
ceedlngs of the court will be open, that
tlie widest latitude will be peiiilltted In
the matter of witnehses, and that Rear
Admiral Schley will be allowed to bo
represented by .counsel.
All day Secretary Long was engross
ed In considering the dotulln of tho
cniirt. particularly seeking for a suit
able judge ndvocato.ieallzlng that upon
' thH ollicer would devolve the largest
measure of responsibility for tho con
duct of the Inquiry to a successful Is
sue. It was thought that such a man
bad been found In the person of
Commander John K. Plllsbury, a
sailor who has the brightest reputa
tion professionally, and Is, moreover,
regarded as of a Judicial temperament.
In fact. It was auonunecd early In tho
day at the department that he had
been selected for the place. Hut later,
on more mature consideration, his
name was abandoned. It was recalled
that as commander of the dvnamlto
cruiser Vesuvius he had served under
Sampson off Santiago, and moreover,
as equipment ollicer of the Hoston navy
yard, was now again a subordinate of
the same admiral.
In his desire to escape all criticism
of hhis. Secretary Long felt that were
reason sullleient for looking out for
now material and for some man who
was absolutely disassociated from the
great controversy In any phase. Late
this afternoon lie believed he had
found such ii person In Captain Samuel
C I.einly, tho judge advocate general
of tho navy, a selection calculated be
cause of the rank of tho ollicer to
constitute a full recognition of tho dig
nity nnd Importance of the forthcom
ing court of Inquiry. While it cannot
be said thnt the matter Is absolutely
settled. Secretary Long went so far
as to ask Captain Lomly If he felt free
to accept tho assignment If it were
offered him, and It l believed that
Captnln Lcmly will decide to answer
Arranging tho Details.
Captain Lemly would feel hint to
have It even Intimated that he had any
personal feeling whatever In the.
Schley-Sampson controversy. in all
the time ho has been at the head of tho
legal department of the navy, his ser
vices dating back to ISM. he never had
occasion to pass upon any question
that Involved either Sampson or Schley
in any possible aspect. He has known
both men. Schley better than Sampson,
perhaps. Ho was one of Schley's per
sonal friends when he (Loinly) was
in active lino service, lie accompan
ied Schley on the famous Cireely relief
expedition and he rendered valuable
hervlce to him on that occasion, which
service the senior ollicer iccognlzed.
i )n the other hnnd. Captain Loinly has
known Sampson otllclally in the navy
department when the admlial was at
the head of the ordnnnco bureau anil
th" were thus thrown Into close con
vict In a business point of view for
leveral yeais. Captain Lemly was
Judge advocate of the Joanetto court
Tho precept to tho court probably will
se Issued tomorrow. It promises to bo
rather extended statement of the
icope of tho Inquiry, compared with
inch document In less Important
uses. It will define the scope of the
nqulry, but whether It will direct the
sourt to return an opinion or simply
;o ascertain tho facts, Secretary Long
,hus far declines tn state. Tho pre
opt will contain the detail of officers
vho cannot be said to be ofllclnlly np
jointed until it Is promulgated. Ad
nlral Schley was not notified today by
!he department of the olllcers who wlil
decide the case, but tho precept will bo
sent to hliu nnd It will constitute his
official notification. Secretary Long
did not formally notify tho ofilcers who
had been . chosen to constitute thu
court of their selection and ho was dis
appointed to learn from an Associated
Press dispatch that Hoar Admiral
Kimberly would ask to ho relieved
from the detail on account of 111 health.
Should ho decline, tho secretary will
select ono of tho othor retired rear ad
mirals to take his place,
Kimberly Asks to Be Believed.

Admiral Kvnns, who lms Just leturnefl

heartiest approval of the plan for a
court of Inquiry to settle the Sampson
Schley controversy, which, r.s ho ex

breath was almost taken away to learn
that alleged Interviews have been going
the rounds to the effect that ho de
clared that Captain Cook, of Schley's

"f know absolutely nothing of such

miral. "In fact. I know nothing of the
facts relating to tho possession of the

DR. KOCH'S THEORY
Earl Spencer nnd Others Do Not
Concede That Consumption Can
not Bo Transmitted by Cattle.
By Kxclusivc Wire (rem Tlic Associated Tress.
London. July 23. Presiding at this
afternoon's session of the British con
gress on tuberculosis, Karl Spencer
(chancellor of Victoria university and
a vice-president of the congress) se
verely ciltielzed Dr. Robert Koch's the
ory to the eifect that human beings
were Immune from contagion from
tuberculosis cattle. Karl Spencer said
be hoped this was true, but that he
hoped more that the dissemination of
such vl"ws would not tend to cause
laxity on the part of the dairymen nnd
cattle owners, or less vigilance by the
authorities charged with protecting the
ennsuiuots of milk. The speaker earn
estly trusted the congress would not
endorse the view that It was unneces
sary to take measures to prevent the
transmission of tuberculosis fiom ani
mals to humans.
Professor John MaeFadelan, of the
r.oynt Veterinary hospital, road u pa
per on the tubercle bacilli In milk as a
source of tuberculosis In man. Mo
said that until Dr. Koch had declared
himself to the contrary. It wan sup
posed to have been fully proved that
human and bovine tuberculosis were
Identical diseases. Prof. MaeFadelan
discussed the grounds upon which Dr.
Koch based his belief, contending that
they were either not well founded or
had little hearing upon tho questions,
nnd ho submitted arguments to prove
that the strongest grounds remained
for regarding milk from tubercuolous
cows as distinctly dangerous to human
Dr. Rnvcnel. of Philadelphia, gave nn
Instance of the Infection of ten per
sons from tuberculous cattle, but said
he considered such Instances to be rare.
James King, a veterinarian, of Lon
don, speaking before the congress, at
tributed the largo increase In the im
ported meat trade to the Inspection of
home killed cattle and said n meat
salesman assured hliu that the losses
from condemned meat carcasses were
so great that the British dealers were
forced to buy Imported meat.
Mr. King dissented flatly from Dr.
Koch's belief In the non-transmission
of bovine tuberculosis to human beings
and urged the adoption of stringent
measures In this respect to Insure tho
healthfulness of Imported carcasses
