Washington. Dec. 14.—The report of
the Schley court of inquiry was pro-
mulgated by Secretary Long Friday
There are two reports. Admirals
Benham Ramsey concur in the first,
which is signed by Admiral Dewey al-
so as a matter of form. Admiral Dew
ey makes a seperate report, although
he agrees with the finding of the
facts subscribed to by the others.
The majority opinion finds in \rief
that Schley should have proceeded
with the utmost dispatch to Cienfue-
gos and maintained a close blockade;
that he should have endeavored to ob-
tain information of the Spanish squad-
ron there; that he should have pro-
ceeded to Santiago with dispatch; that
he should not have made the retro-
grade movement; that he should have
obeyed the department's order; that
he should have endeavored to capture
the Spanish vessels in Santiago; that
he aid not do his utmost to destroy
the Colon; that he caused the squad-
ron to lose distance in the loop of the
Brooklyn; that he thereby caused the
Texas, to back; that he did injustice to
Hodgson; that his conduct in the cam
1 paign was characterized by vacilla-
tion. dilatoriness and a lack of enter-
prise; that his official reports on the
coal supply were iuisdeading and in-
accurate; that his conduct during the
batle was self-possessed, and that he
encouraged by his own person his sub-
ordinate officers and men
Admiral Dewey in his report says
that the passage to Cienfuegos was
made with all dispatch; that in view
of his coal supply the blockade of
Cienfuegos was effective; that he al-
lowed the Adula to enter Cienfuegos
to get information: that his passage to
Santiago was with as much dispatch
as possible, keeping the squadron to-
gether; that the blockade of Santia-
go was effective, and finally, that he

Washington. Dec. 17.—The following
was handed Secretary Long:
"Washington. Dec. 16.—Sir. 1 have
the honor to most respectfully request
that you withhold your approval from
the findings of th* court of inquiry,
held at tho, navy yard in the city of
Washington, of which Admiral George
Dewey was president, until such time

Washington. Dec. 17.—The senile
Monday ratified the Hay-Paunce?ote
isthmian canal treaty by the decisive
vote of ?2 to 6.
The vote was reached a vew minutes
before 5 o'clock, after almost five
hours' discussion behind closed doors.
The principal speech of the day was
made by Senator Teller in opposition
to the treaty, and he was followed in
rapid succession by twelve or fourteen
other senators, who spoke briefly either
for or against the motion to ratify.
Mr. Teller expressed confidence that
the resolution would be adopted, bus.
said he was convinced that there are
few senators who are really satisfied
with the treaty. He believed it would
have been possible to secure a treaty
which would give entire satisfaction,
and he sharply criticised the state de-
partment for failing to do so.
He took the position that it would
have been sufficient, to abrogate the
Clay ton-Buiwer treaty, and said that
England knew well enough that with
the result accomplished she could very
well trust the United States to main-
tain the neutrality of the canal, as this
country had bee* prepared to do so
for many years.
Among the other speakers of the
day were Senator Clay. Fairbanks, Mc-
Cumber. McLaurin of Mississippi, Cul-
berson, Mallory, Mason, Tillman, Ba-
con and Bate.
Senator Clay contended that the
treaty should be ratified because it se-
cured the abrogation of the Clayton-
Senator Bacon's speech was made in
connection with a motion to amend
the treaty. In presenting this amend-
ment he said he was in favor of a
canal and would vote for the treaty
with the Davis amendment. He said
he opposed the treaty because he did
not believe it would give the 1'nited
States full control of the canal.
Senator Culberson offered an amend-
ment to insert the Davis amendment
for the last «ectaon. This was defeated
