w hlch examined U10 "Dolphin" for Secretary
Whitney handed him Its report yesterday
morning. Captain Belknap Commander
Evans and Mr. Herman Winters do not de-
sire another trial trip tn satisfy them that
the ship Is bad. Not one of them believes
her to be seaworthy. Even on her first
trial In the smooth waters of Long Island
Sound she demonstrated brr structural
weakness It turns out that she did not
make the required fifteen knots ecn In an
i alleged successful third trial trip on the
sound. Tho design of the ship consid-
ered as a dispatch boat. Is absurd
bho can't make Sliced and cannot defend
herself. Tho only use for a gun on such
ships Is for the foro and aft fire Biid ye'
her six-Inch gun can shoot In neither of
tlirso directions. She can not fire at the
esscl v. hlch rho may bo pursuing nor at
one from which she may bo flying. In or-
der to do cither sho would bo obliged to
send her ball through the small hamlet of
houses that has been built on her deck.
Ono of these houses Is called "Social Hall"
and this sufficiently Indicates the use to
which It was Intended to be put. The
Board recommended Its demolition.

and met no one who was wilting to carry
on a conversation In French. He main-
tained his dlstilso among his com.
S anions and excited their admiration by
Is quickness to resent a "glsb" at an In-
different play of a card or a reflection
upon his knowlcdgo of the Rime. The
cosslp of tho ship soon said that the
French Colonel repelled the slightest In-
sinuations against him with genuine mili-
tary spirit. Bcforo rcichlng Honolulu
the singular passenger had overcome all
out ward signs of anxiety and Joined
lightly In all tho spirts of the ship. Ho
maintained his early acquired reputation
for eccentricity by appearing one morn-
ing In a foil suit of knickerbockers with
a cartridge belt about bis waist and a
levolver In his band which he began to
clean remarking that It had got rusty In
bis box. It was observed by one on tho
ship that It was singular for a Colonel In
the French army to bo traveling In the
steerage and that It was still more
singular that a man so young should have
reached so high a rank In an army where
promotions n. slow but not a suspicion
crossed any mind 01 shlpbotrd that T.
C. D'Auglcr the French Colonel In the
steerage was anything clso than ho pre-
tended or that he was being dally boruo
forward to a disgraceful end.
TIIK rillSKK't) story.
Purser Comfort of the City of Sydney
who came most In contact with Maxwell
told the following story of the actions ol
thi'- murderer. He said 1 "Vheu D'Au-
glrr came aboard I noticed him because
of bis dress and his villainous French
accent. He was In tho steerage and
brought one large trunk two baud-bas
aud puo hat-box. Of course In the s ccr-
age room Is at a premium aud passcn-
gciis aro allowed to visit bsgsago only
once a week or so. For a few dajrs D'Au-
glcr left with me 0130 In sovereigns
and tbey were put In tho safe. If be had
any more money be didn't show It as he
was quite economical In his habits ouly
buying a bottle or two of ginger ale every
da. He talked a good deal wltt. two
young Ungllshmcn who were fellow-passengers
In the steerage and be seemed
very gentlemanly In his appearauco and
manners. About the time wo entered tho
tropics bo put cu a knlckeibockcrsult
with kuco breeches and stocklugs such
ss bicyclers affect In this country. Noth-
ing occurred after this to call ray atten-
tion to the man except as he drew his
money tho daT before we landed He
wasn't demonstrative and he mado
no complaints about the food or accom-
moJatluns. A few hours before we gut
Into Auckland I was much surprised to
see the pilot and two police oftlcers
board the vessel Tbcrcame to ny ro in
aud said Itny had a wsrrant for the ar-
rest of one IPAuglcr for a foul murder
committed tn St. Louis. Their descrip-
tion of tho man tallied with the steerage
pssscnger In knickerbockers. I told the
officers to stand in the small passageway
by the door of my room so tbat tho ac-
cused man could not see them. I sent
the steward's clerk to csll D'Ausler. He
came along In a minute with a jau-ity air
wim nis nanas in nis pocxeis. xno two
speclsl officers had warned me bo was a
desperate character and they evidently
expected he would open Ore on them with
a six-shooter so I didn't think they were
sorry iu eianu ouuiuo too ooor. n on
when 1 saw the fellow with his bands hi
his nockcls I thought ho might be going
to shoot but be only smiled good-naturedly
and i-ald In his horrible Frenoh-Kn-gllsht
"Was ze de matter?" I saldt
"Your name Is D'Auglcr Isn't Uf" He
saldt "Yes; datecs my namo." Then I
said over his bead to tho olllcerst "This
Is your man." Then turning to D'Augler
I saldt "You aro wanted for murder;" at
the samo time the ofllccrs clapped hand-
cuffs on him.
On May 6th he was brought Into the
police court and the charges against him
read. The Crown Solicitor appeared lor
tho prosecution and Messrs. Mapter and
Button tor the defense. Tho la'ter
claimed that the court had no jurisdic-
tion and after some argument tho case
was remanded to the 711 atr whloU It
was remanded to the ltth.
On tbat last named day the case was
brought np. Consul Gamble was the
first witness called He testified on be
half of tho prosecution as to the various
articles found In Maxwell's trunk which
among other things contained two band-
ketcblcts marked "a A. P." a shirt with
two Urge spots ol blood on It sixteen
palbs of cuffs marked with the Initials
"C. A. P." and a suit of underwear
that bad been ripped from a body
lu reply to questions aa to how the
articles not bearing the Initials of bis
name bad come Into his posit sston. Max-
well said they bad been given to him In
Ban Francisco by a man named ltoblnsjn.
w 11 una mo us spend uis mqnby?
The lufertnce which Is drawn hero from
tho fact that. Maxwell had only 9180 when
arrested and spent so little on the ship Is
that be ran against a laro bank elthei
here or on the 'hip and got cleaned out.
The fact that he took steerage passage
would argue that he bad little money be-
fore be started. Had he gone In the
cabin he could have had his trunk in hit
state-room and then when hit room-mate
was out he could have destroyed all com-
promising evidence melt aa the thirty-
lour cuts marked O A. P. aad the cut
ad elasbtst drawers. These he could
Mftlr )vt Wwowm oTsjrhrxl at night.
In tbo steerage however ho wss restrict
cd to wcokly visit to his tiunk always
In tho presence- of officers of the ship or
other passengers so that It was Impossi-
ble for him to romovo evidence of his
crime without cxclllnir suspicion. As the
Pacific mall steamer Zclandla on which
offlccta Tracy and fladger will arrive at
Auckland takes Ave days to reach Sydney
remal.is at Sydnoy fourteen days and
again consumes Ave days on the
trip from Sydney to Auckland this gives
the dclccthcs twenty-four days In which
to get ixtradltlon papers approved
by the local courts. Tha conduct
of Justlco Smith In overruling tbo ob-
jections of Maxwell's counsel s'iows
that ho will not allow the ends of
Justice to bo defeatod by any legal tec-
nlcallly and It may bo counted as mor-
ally certain tbat tho murderer wilt be
bronght back on the Zclamlla which Is
duo In this city nbout September 1st.
The New Zealand Iftrald said editori-
ally on tho day after tbo arrest of
Maxwell 1 "The murder at St. Louis

well or Theodore Cecil D'Augier was

In fervent prayer. At Glllam t'10 hand-'
somo Methodist Church was leveled to the

gow It seemed to spend Its awful fury de-
molishing houses and taking bumin life in
its mad career. There seemed to be two
separate clouds one coming fromthesonlh-
west and ono from tho southeast The
great black funnel-shaped clouds were
seen to meet and with such a roar as
can only bo conceived of by thoso
who heard. Striking tho river It)
threw the water clear up on tho

ficulty In fact tho lmposslb llty of making
a full examination of a completed ship In
which n larre share of the work Is covered
up. without the expenditure of a consider-
able stun of money In opening up the work
and proceeds: "Tbe Dolphin Is Intended

having the ability to make that rpecd con-
tinually In such weather as sho mxy
reasonably be called upon to encounter
would at tills day not answer the purposes
of the service. That a bout ot her slzs
should possess! this rcquir'te speed It Is ab-
solutely Indispensable thst she should
havo great strength and silliness to
enable her to make tlio speed re-
quired under the conditions she must
be prepared to meet admits of Ho doubt lo
tho opinion of the board." Tlio Dolphin1
trials on the sound aro then Broken of at
at the rate ot 15 knots whereas to mak
that speed at sea she should have gone IT
to 175V knots. Tho report adds: "On the
occasion referred to the vibration of the
Dolphin when subjected to only that duty
and test was very perreptlblo and ot a
character to demonstrate Inadequate
strength aud stiffness. Under such cir-
cumstances the floors of the engine room
were observed to spring severely and this
let It be noted occurred when sho wss sub-
jected to much less severe duty than she
must be expected to encounter when
actually engaged In the service for which
she was Intended." The board continues
that this evidence nt weakness was corrob-
orated on the occasion ot the second trial

tons of pig-iron tbe vessel was so sprung as

and cause her nrtcr crank pin to become
hot even before the trial had actually begun.
The report continues: "Wherefore' the
2'jcstlon arises Is this structural weakness
ue to a fault of plan or execution or does
It proceed from both? In Justice to tie
contractor It Is proper to state that the plana
exhibited to tho board and those furnished
to the contractor are meager and by bc
means provide for a vessel ot adequate
strength for the uses for which the Dolphin
was intended. While It Is clear that the
plans aro at fault and It carried out la the
best manner would not produce a vessel
of sufficient strength yet It seems to the
board that the Dolphin exhibits a degree of
weakness In excess ot what can be properly
attributed to tlio defective plans. Where-
fore the board Is ot the opinion that tho
execution must be faulty In this regard-
But It Is Impossible to state with exactness
tlio degree ot blame tliat might properly
attach to tho contractor In this precise
respect without taking oat tlito machinery
and opening up tho ship." It Is asserted
that no attention has been paid to the
provision for an air pressure In the fire
room. The question of horse power Is
tKen takt-n up and It Is Uiown that on tho

her crank tria heated on tbe third slid
showed 3253; and on tho fourth with nat-
ural draft undar the boiler.. 1048 whereas
