Tb" conference regarding Germany's commercial pol- icy, v.'liich is in session iu Munich, is attended. Professor Waiter Lotz of tl'.f University of jltraich. who was the first speaker, took for his theme the question, "Is sn Increase in tht> Grain Duties Compatible With the "Welfare of He answered it ia the negative, saying i" part: "The desire for dearer grain results in a desire for dearer meat, eggs, fruit, vegetables, iron, paper, yarn, building materials more expensive dwell- ings. Export is possible only when tiu> cost, of production is cheap. But tha new tariff aims at a higher cost of production. While wo oppose hight-r grain duties we must ask on the other hand for a reduction of numerous in- dustrial duties." The speaker uttered a word of cau- tion against a tariff war with the Unit- ed States, pointing out that Germany wold lose her markets in South Amer- ica, Great Britain and eastern Asia. Professor Schumacher of Cologne in- dorsed the doctrine of a moderate In- crease of duties. He said he thought a duty of 6 marks for rye and GMs for wheat would bo justifiable. "Full re- ciprocity in customs questions must be secured with the United States." he observed. "Both Germany and the United States must bind themselves. We myst unconditionally abollsli fa- voritism.

Washington, Sept. was only one session of the Schley court today, court adjourning to attend the funeral of Judge Wilson in the after- noon. Captain Wise of the Yale. was plac- ed on the stand and testified that she was off Santiago from May 22 to 26 and saw no signs of the Spanish fleet. Wise a'lso 3said he had never given Schley information that the Spanish Sleet was in Santiago bay. Captain Wise admitted lliat he could hate communicated With Schley at any time by signal between .May 20 and 2o. Information had been re- reived from the navy department that the Spanish fleet was. in Santiago. Wise's excuse was that Capt. Sigs'jee knew of this information and it was his business to tell Schley. COTTON AND WISE Commanders of Scout Vessels What They Know. Tell Washington, Sept. nevr vrltnesses were introduced in the Schley court of inquiry. They were Admiral Cotton, who as captain com- manded the auxiliary cruiser Harvard, and Captain Wise, who eomniaaJeil the auxiliary cruiser Vale during the Spanish war. Both these vessels were used as scouts and both came nn wirh the tlying squadron off Santiago on May 27, before t-u- retrograde move- ment to Key West was bHgun. Ad- miral Cotton testified that he had gone aboard Admiral Schley's flag- ship, the Brooklyn, on that date, to take dispatches to him. and he said at first that he gave him four or five dispatches addressed to (he coniinan- der of the sijuadron. He afterward modified this statement, saying that probauiy all but two of these dis- patches weru addressed to himself (Admiral but that they con- tained information which he thought should be in Admiral Schley's posses- sion. One of these was a copy of a dispatch from Admiral Sampson, which had not been printed in the of- ficial records, statins that the Spanish that coal could have been taken from tUe Merriiiiac OH 25. the day os which the retrograde movement to Key West was begun for the purpose of coaling. A "Dear Schley" letter is dated Key West, Fla., May 20. 1S9S. Referring to a telegram from the navy depart- ment received by Sampson advising the latter to send word to Schley to proceed to Santiago. Sampson says: "After duly considering this telegram I isve decided to make no change in the present plans; that is, that you -should hold your squadron prf Cien- fuegos. If the Spanish ships have put in to Santiago they must come either to Havana or Clenfuegos to deliver the munitions of war which they are said to bring tor use in Cuba. I ass there- fore of opinion that our best chance of success in capturing their ships wil! be to hold the two points, Clen- fuegos and Havana, With all the force we can muster. If later it should de- velop that these vessels are at San- tiago, we could then assemble off that port the ships best suited for the pur- pose and completely blockade it. Un- til we therefore receive more positive information we shall have to continue f.o hold Havana and Santiago." Captain Wise testified that on May 27 he had signaled Captain Philip- of. the Texas his opinion that Cervera was inside the harbor at Santiago, but the testimony was ruled out. jniral Schley announced that he bas. selected Mr. Rayner as his chief of counsel to succeed Judge Wilson.
