tho bureaus In tlio yards upon tho results

Secretary also Invites the commandants to
mnko such observations as they may deslro
with roferenco to tho efficiency of tbo now
foremen with a view to determine whether
In any caso mistakes have been mado In
their selection. Ono point on which In-
formation Is particularly desired Is whether
any ono of tho present foremen has selected
men not good workmen constituting an In-
efficient force or has appeared to bo gov-
erned by political considerations rather than
In tho Interest of the yard. In connection
with tho report of the Naval Board regard-
ing the cruisers tho following letter written
by Secretary Wiitncy August 11 to Mr.
Vanderpool counsel for John Itoach Is fur-

bcon mado nnd the nppralsal contemplated
by the contract hnd I seo no reason
to doubt tbat my decision will then
be precisely what It would be at tho presont
tlmo namely: ' . ndcr existing circum-

property brnvnlllng Itself of tho terms of
the contract and carrying the ships forward
to completion. In doing so Inasmuch ns lu

should acorn It entirely proper whllo

that It should bo dono In tho yard
of tho contractor and with his force.
The plans aro thcro; tho organiza-
tion Is thcro familiar with tho ships:
and tho necessities of tho Government

retained nnd control over tho forco Is re-
tained but tho work Is conducted with tbo

Tears wero falling from tho old man's eyes

pered some word unheard by nil savo tho

Council Monday evening.
Dr. Jacobs thrn look the witness ehaii
aud gave a dcbMlod description of his treat-
ment of Mr. Walkup during the latter!
Illness. His testimony sgrted Almost ex-
actly with that which he gave at the coro-
ner's Inquest He attributed tho complaint
toacuto Indigestion acxravated by eating
strychnine In vinegar and dtlnklng pop on
Thursday until after ho had been Informed
by Mr. 1)111 Friday going to show thai
Mrs. Walkup had been buying arsenic lis
thus concluded that arsenical poisoning was
the cause of the sickness and this Impres-
sion was confirmed by tho Increasing se-
verity of tha previous symptoms. He did
not treat specifically for arsenical poison-
Int.. Ha administered an antidote. lis

showing arsenical poisoning and said. In

detailed explanation of his reasons for con-
sidering until Kilday that Walkup's condt-
t'on was an acute attack of Indigestion.
The Impossibility of always making a cor
rect diagnosis was explained. In explana-
tion nt hi reason for ttrnklng Mr. Walkni
was poisoned after Mr. Hill had spoken It
hi in. the doctor said : "It may not be possi-
ble for a physician to diagnosticate thi
condition of a patient by tho symptoms ol
the patient at any enr time but by the de-
velopment of those symptoms and tbo cir-
cumstances under which they exist"
Tho doctor went on to give an llluslrallor
by relating several cases to substantiate Hill
statement. Ills testimony was lengthy and
gave In detail his treatment of tho caso and
full explanation of arsenical poison.
Nothing In Walkup's case bo slid wai
lacking to confirm the theory of arsenical
rqtsnn and It would be absolutely Impossi-
ble. Tor any doctor under tho circumstances
to make a diagnosis of tbo case. Upon
