story came from Westlawn Cemetery
last night, where a company of regu

duty on the top of the vault fired a
hot at one man who refused to heed i
his challenge, that the shot was divert-1
ed by another man, who appeared from I
another direction, and that an effort
was made to stab the guard.
Private Deprend was on guard duty
on top of the vault at a point com
manding the entrance below, and the
men appeared from the rear. Shortly
before 7.30 he saw what he took to be
the face of a man peering from behind
a tree about 40 feet from his post. He
watched It for 20 minutes, he says, and
at 7.45 saw the man hurry to a tree
10 feet nearer.
Ho challenged the man to halt, but
this was not heeded, and the follow
approached nearer. Deprend leveled
his gun and aimed to shoot for effect,
but just at that instant another man.
who came toward him from the oppo
site side, caught the gun. threw it up,
and the bullet was spent in tho air.
This 8ame nian stnick Deprend on the
right side of the abdomen with a knife
or other sharp weapon, cutting an "L"

half long each way and a smaller one
in his blouse. The flesh was not
broken but was bruised under the cuts
in the clothing. Deprend In the strug

SCHLEY COURT INQUIRY.
Cotton Says Admiral Worried Over
Fleet's Coal Supply.

nesses were introdu
ced In the Schley
They were Admiral
Cotton, who as captain commanded the
auxiliary cruiser Harvard, and Captain
I Wise, who commanded the auxiliary
cruiser Yale durirjg the Spanish war.
Both these vessels were used as scouts
I and both came up with the flying
squadron off Santiago on the 27th of
May, before the retrograde movement
to Key West was begun.
Admiral Cotton testified that he had
gone aboard Admiral Schley's flagship,
the Brooklyn, on that date to take dis
1 patches to him and he said at first that
he gave him four or Ave dispatches
addressed to the commander of the
I squadron. He afterwards modified this
i statement saying that probably all but
' two of these dispatches were addressed
to himself (Admiral Cotton), but that
they contained Information which he
thought should be In Admiral Schley's
possession. One of these was a copy of
a dispatch from Admiral Sampson,
which had not been printed in the of
ficial records, stating tlu.t the Spanish
fleet was at Santiago. He also said
that coal could have been taken from
the Merrlmac on the 27th of May, the
day on which the retrograde movement
to Key West was begun for the pur
pose of coaling.
