case he does not act, my resolution

Depends Upon Wishes of Admiral Schley.
Among members of the House of
Kepresentatiyes the findings in the
Schley case were discussed with great
interest, and considerable speculation
was indulged in as to the prospect of a
congressional investigation of the sub
ject. The prevailing view appeared
to be that much will depend upon the
wishes or Admiral Schley and his
friends in the Maryland delegation.
Representative Cummings, of New
York, was the only member of the na
val committee at the House to-dav
He pointed -out that Representative
Williams, or Mississippi, already had
introduced a resolution proposing an
investigation, and that under the rules
of the House this would become privi
leged and could be called up on the
floor if not reported f-om a committee
within two weeks from the time it was
ntroducedj. The Williams resolution
was introduced about a week ago. so
that it will become privileged and can
be called up immediately after the
holidays. Aside from this resolution
it is expected that various others will
D3 introduced, now that the findings of
the court have been announced.
The House Naval Commitfee.
Chairman Foss, of the House Naval
Committee, declined to express an
opinion as to w hether Congress would
deal with the Schley case. He says
he has been careful to avoid taking
sides on the subject, as it might come
before - the committee, and he wishes
to preserve a wholly impartial attitude,
Among most of Foss' associates it is
the general understanding that the
chairman is not favorable to Congres
Chairman Payne, the majority floor
leader, when asked if a Congressional
investigation was likely to be held,
said: "Why should Congress go, in to
the subject? Admiral Schley has had
his day in court and I doubt whether
it would be advisable for Congress to
go over the ground already covered by
the court."" .
Representative Meyer, of Louisiana,
a member of the Naval Committee and
an authority on naval affairs, said: "I
do not think there should be a Con
gressional investigation. The verdict
of the American people finds its best
expression in the findings of Admiral
Representative Hay, of Virginia,
chairman of the House Democratic
caucus, 6aid; "I think my Democratic
associates would ba glad to support a
resolution for a Congressional investi
eation, which would go to the bottom
of the Schley case, But I very much
doubt whether the majority in control
of the House would permit such an in
vestigation to be undertaken."
Opinion in the Senate Divided,
Opinion in the Senate is divided as
to the probability of a Congressional
Investigation of the Schley contro
versy, but is upon the whole against
the probability of such a course. A
majority of the Republican Senators
appear to be adverse to the re-opening
of the question, and those of this view
include friends of Admiral Schley.
Senator Hoar expressed himself as
content to abide by the opinion of Ad
miral Dewey, because of his superior
facilities for reaching a correct con
elusion, and Senator Mason took a
similar position, adding that the opin
ion of the admiral of the navy would
be accepted as the Verdict of the coun
try, regardless of what conclusion
other members of the court might
have reached. Senator Hale thought
there would be, and should be, no
further investigation. He is chair
man of the Committee on Naval Af
fairs, and said he would use whatever
influence be might possess against
further' inquiry as detrimental to the
best interests of the navy. ,
Senator Cullom declared that
further inquiry would be tomfoolery,
and that no more light on the subject
could be secured than had been. Dem
ocratic Senators generally seemed dis
posed to wait upon the expression of
opinion by the friends of Admiral
Schley. Senator Martin said that
while he did not feel called upon to
present a declaration, he thought that
Congress should adopt a joint resolu
tion stating its confidence in the ad
rairal. Senator Bacon said he would
be glad to vote for a resolution declar
ing Admiral Dewey's position to be
the correct position. Senator Money
assented to the proposition that Con
gress should act, if action was desired
by the friends of Admiral Schley.
Senator Rawlins thought a resolution
of confidence would be in order, and
8enator Jones, of Arkansas, thought
it most probable that a resolution
bearing upon the question was among
the probabilities. Senator McComas,
the only Senator from Admiral
Schley's own 8tate, (Maryland), who
was at the Capitol to day, excused
himself from discussing the verdict in
the Schley case, saying that he would
not decide upon a course of policy un
til he could hear from the admiral's

1 Case Where Naval Cadet Tvrae
Discipline Into a Jolie.
Among other good stories told by
Cyrus Townsend Brady in his "Under!
Tops'ls and Tents," published by Scrib-
ners, is this:
it is related that a large number of
naval cadets were negligent in follow
ing the service In the chapel; which was
after the ritual of the Episcopal
church. An incautious officer in charge
on Sunday morning made a little' ad
dress to tbe church party on the sub
ject, saying he supposed that some of
them erred through ignorance, but it
they would observe him carefullyand
do as he did In military parlance,-tfol-low
tbe motions of the commanding of
ficer they would not go wrong.
Word was passed Quietly through-tie
battalion. They marched into the
church. The officer in charge took his
place in the front pew, settled himself
UThis seat and calmly blew his nose.
Three hundred noses were blown si
multaneously with a vehemence 1 that
was startling. The officer looked around
and blushed violently in great surprise.
Three hundred heads "followed the mo
tions of the commanding officer." Six
hundred cheeks violently tried to blush,
a hard thing to for a midshipmanto do,
and so on through the service. "
The man could not stir without in
stant imitation. He finally confined1
himself strictly to the prescribed rit
ual of the service, looking neither to
the right nor to the left, not daring to
raise a finger or breaths out of the or
dinary course. This enterprise also
was a startling success.
The cadets received other instructions
later in the day from a furious officer
who sternly resented- their innocent
statements that they did not know
which was ritual and which was not
and that he had not instructed them
that blowing his nose stood on a differ
ent plane from saying his prayers. It
was a huge joke everywhere.
DWARFING AN OAK TREE.
Tfce Japaneae Trick by Which It la
The Chabo Hiba, a dwarf Japanese
pine tree, was recently sold for $1,200.
It is six feet high and alleged to be 850
years old. It has long been supposed
that the process by which Japanese
gardeners succeeded in dwarfing forest
trees was a loug and costly one. It is
now said that it is a simple process and
that any one can do the trick. The fol
lowing directions are given for produc
ing a miniature oak tree
Take an orange and scoop out the
pulp. Fill the interior with a rich mold
and plant an acorn in the center of it,
leaving the hole in the rind for it to
sprout through. . Put it in a sunny place
and water it frequently. Soon after
the first shoots have appeared the roots
begin to break through the orange skin.
Take a sharp knife ami shave these off
carefully and keep them shaved. The
tree will grow about five or six Inches
high and then stop. In a year it will
be a perfect miniature oak. When the
roots cease to grow, the orange skin
should be varnished over and Imbed
ded in a flowerpot.
The Japanese dwarf all kinds of trees
and make them live io a great age.
Some of these dwarfs, jlike the Chabo
Hiba, are well known, and their own
ers have documentary evidence attest-?
ing their great age. The older they
are the more valuable, of course, they
are. In Japan certain families follow
the calling, trade, art, or what you will,
of growing dwarf trees from genera
tion to generation, and you can buy a
miniature oak 500 years old from a de
scendant of the man who first planted
the acorn. Not only forest trees, but
fruit trees and flowering shrubs, are
dwarfed by these clever gardeners.
