The Court Congratulates Admiral

lly Kiclushe Wire fiom The Associated 1'iojs.
"Washington, xov. 6. Tho climax of
the Schley court of inquiry came tills
afternoon when Mr. Kuynor, the chief
counsel for Admirul Schley, closed a
brilliant argument of over three hours
with peroration so eloquent and impas
sioned that all within the sound of his
voice were profoundly touched. This
remarkable trial, ho said, sought to
condemn the man who had brought to
a. successful termination as great a.
naval triumph as wan ever won. In
vivid colors he painted the picture of
the Brooklyn with Commodore Schley
n the bridge lighting: the entire Span
ish fleet until the Oregon appeared, out
of tin1 smoke. The thunders of the
"Brooklyn, music for the ears of his
'ountrymen, he said, aroused Admiral
Schley's envious foes, tie pictured the
victorious sailor suffering as few have
Huffcred for three long years while the
Jiixs of persecution leaped around him
and now awaiting the hour of his vindi
cation in the verdict of the court.
"And when it comes," lie concluded,
'lie can, from the high and exalted
position that he occupier, look down
upon his traducers and maligners and
with excellent ruble exclaim:
"I caru not for the venomous gossip
of dubs, drawing rooms and cliques,
aiid the poisoned shafts of envy and
,if malice. I await under the guidance
of divine Providence the verdict of pos
The scene in the court room as be
ilnlshed with these words was thrilling.
The attendance had been large all day
and at the morning session a lady had
fainted from excitement. As air. Ilny
ner began his eulogy of Admiral Schley
those in the audience, many of whom
were ladies, leaned forward in their
"eats. Tho spell of his oratory was over
them and when he described the ad
miral's gallant deeds and the long per
secution to which lie had been subjected
many of them broke down and wept.
The members of the Court displayed
evidences of emotion and Admiral
Schley himself was plainly moved, He
sat. leaning back, with his hands be
hind his head, ills chin twitched and
as his counsel said he could afford to
await the verdict of posterity two big
tears rolled down his cheeks'. He moved
uneasily to conceal his emotion and un
der the pretense of adjusting his
glusses brushed the tears aside. For
fully thirty .seconds after air. Raynor
closed there was not a. sound. Then
the tension broke in a loud burst of ap
plause. Admiral Dewey, after about
half a minute, rose to remind Hip spec
tators that such a demonstration was
out of place.
Congratulations of the Court.
A moment afterward tho court ad
journed, the judge advocate pleading
that he could not well go on today.
Then another remarkable thing hap
pened. As soon as the gavel fell, tho
ontiro audience singed forward to
shake tho hands of Admiral Schley
and Sir. Hnyner. Hut the nn-cnmhig

THE LONG ISLAND
DEER SEASON OPENS
Shooting' Began Yesterday and Will
Be Allowed Four Days Efforts
to Protect the Animals.
By KxiluMie Win fromlhe Associated I'rcjs.
Kastport. L. T.. Nov. C Sportsmen
of Manhattan and its suburbs have
been eagerly anticipating the opening
of the legal season for shooting deer,
which occurs on Long Island today.
Here, within nearly an hour's railroad
journey from the metropolis, deer muy
be shot during the four days of the
open season the first two "Wednesdays
and the llrst two Fridays after the
first Tuesday in November.
The deer tract lies along tho north
side ot the Slontauk division tracks of
the Long Island railroad, between Say
vlllo and Great river, a distance of
eight miles. To the northward it. ex
tends an far as the main tracks of the.
same road. Located in this vicinity
arc the. preserves of the South Side
Sportsmen's club, to whose presence
the deer owe their escape from total
extermination. The association's mem
bers not only forbid the public shoot
ing on its grounds, but themselves re
frain from molesting the animals. A
few days before tho opening of I he sea
son, the ciulj engages men to drive
the deer from the surrounding woods
Into the preserves, where it is hoped
to atford them protection until after
the close of the season, it Is naturally
Impossible to secure all the deer mid
to these the public owes its opportuni
ties for sport.
Throughout yesterday hundreds of
hunters, including residents or New
York. New Jersey. Conencticnt and
Ithode island, arrived on the grounds,
so as to prepare for the sport which
began at sunrise this morning.
Long before daybreak the hunters
tuUu 1111 their stations in the woods,
the dogs unleashed, and the game
started in all directions. Notwith
standing tho gauntlet of lire which the
animals must, undergo, they frequently
effect their escape to the preserves or
the South Side Sportsman's club. The
course of the game is often Indicated
bv the reports of the guns discharged
at It as it plunger, wildly through the
wood-! to reach the haven of tho club's
The bolter n command a view of the
surrounding land and to reduce the
chances of being mistaken and shoL
for a. deer by their companions, sports
men frequently climb the trees. Tn
fact, it is not an unusual sight to see
several hunters stationed in the
branches of tho trees wtlhin a few
rods of one another.
It Is expected that before sundown
tonight at least sixty deer will be shot.
During the remainder of the season It
Is not probable that the aggregate
number killed will be more ihnn that
secured on tho opening 'Wednesday.
The farmers welcome the hunters
and offer them every encouragement to
kill the game, against which they have
a well-Justllled grievance. In tho spring
and sunineKV of each year the deer visit
the rnims and destroy hundreds of
dollars' worth of crops, Tin re Is no io
dress, mid whl'o the animals can bo
driven away, they nn. sure in return
again and renew their depredations'. It
Is said that were the deer afforded a
periuauiiit elos-e season their numbers
would hieeiasn to such an extent that
II would be utterly Impossible to raise
any crops In the section they inhabit.
The popular Weapon for shooting
deer mi i.onir island Is the sholnun,
loaded with buckshot. The illle, except
In the hands of an expert shot, Is al
most usu'les, while Its employment
greatly lucreiifes tho liability of acci
dental shooting of ollnu's.

sure thnt he and I can co-operate In
office as cordially and effectively as we
have on the stump. I am also pleased
to know thnt thf entire city govern
ment will be so nearly at one with It
self. It Is 'most fortunate that those
who are responsible for the administra
tion "f the city government will have
complete control of tho hoard of esti
mate and apportionment.
Asked whether he would he guided by
patronage In matters of appointment,
Mr. Low replied:
"I will not ho guided by patronage In
matters of appointment. The charter
gives to thu mayor the appointment of
certain officers. I shall make .uch ap
pointments with all possible care. I
shall expect each commissioner to con
sult with me as to the appointment of
his deputy. Th'e deputy commissioners
will be responsible to the mayor as well
us thu commissioners themselves and
every commissioner will be buld respon
sible for the administration of his
whole department. I shall, therefore,
leave him entirely free in the matter
ot tho selection of hi other subordin
ates, in order to thus hold hiin respon
sible. Those, therefore, who may wish
subordinate offices In tho city govern
ment must deal with the heads of de
partments, when thesoheads of' depart
ments havo been appointed, by me. It
will be Idle to make any such applica
tion to me. for they will meet with no
consideration at my hands.' nor will I
refer them to thu commissioners them
selves." MINE FIRED BY INCENDIARIES.

From a Chinese Standpoint He Was
One of the Greatest Scholars in the
By Kx.luslve Wire from The .Woeiated Press.
Pekln, Nov. V. LI Hung Chang died
nt It o'clock this morning. Several
hours before his death the burial
clothes were put on. The court yard
of the Yomen was. lilted with life size
paper horses and chairs with eoolli?
bearers, which his friends sent, in ac
cordance with Chinese custom, to be
burled when he died in order to carry
his soul to heaven.
Several of thq, ministers of the pow
ers called to express sympathy. Thu
Chinese ofllcials were somewhat un
easy concerning the effect his death
would have on the populace: and to
guard ngalnst a possible anti-foreign
demonstration the Chinese generals
disposed of their troops about the city
In such a way as to command the sit
uation. Trouble, however, is extreme
ly Improbable. The wife of Karl LI
and his two sons and daughter nm
with him. They are greatly distressed.
Chinese officials throng the Yamen.
Telegrams have been sent summoning
I'rlnce Ching, who Is now on his way
to meet the court, and Chou Ku, prov
incial treasurer, from Pao Ting-Pit'.
The former wilt assume the general
charge of governmental affairs and the
latter will act as governor of Chill un

office who will probably be Yuan Shi

has been received at the state depart
ment from Minister Conger at Fekin, '
stating that LI Httiiff Changes dyjng.,,
Tho death of this 'distinguished
Chinaman will not. It is believed here,
affect the execution of the undertuk-N
lags Imposed upon China in the pro
tocol. Certainly tho United States in
terest will not be involved directly for
all that remains to be done nt Pekln In
which our government Is interested
is the preparation of trade and com
mercial treaties and the lines have
been so clearly marked that the work
to be done is almost mechanical and
Is not likely to be retarded by LI Hung
