Gampfer, who was commissary of subsistence at Lakeland, Fla., anil Maj. Croightoii Webb, who was on Gen. Lawton's staff in Cuba, testified for the first tiTne. Col. Woodruff of the Commissary flepartment, and Mr. Morehouse, the Tampa agent for Armour & Co., who superintended the supply of fresh beef to the troops at Lakeland, wore recalled. Maj. Webb's testimony dealt almost entirely with the. canned roast beef, which he pronounced as useless as an article of food. Lieut. Gampfer said a representative Young Philadelphiau Cripples a Qirl tor Life. Philadelphia; March UO.—Miss Edith Booiie of th'is city has begun a suit for $15,000 against Frederick R. Farrow, a young drug clerk, for squeezing her hands so violently that the small bones in one of them were broken and both •hands \vere rendered practically useless. Her doctor says necrosis may necessitate.the amputation of one hand. • The squeezing was done a year ago, I when Farrow had a situation, in the > store under where Miss Boone's family . J lived, and where he took his meals. Of !. the singular -case, the fair plaintiff said: "Just after dinner, March 18, 1898, Fred, seined both of my hands and jokingly began to squeeze them. It hurt terribly arid" I asked him to let go, but. he would not. Ht> pressed my hands very hard for five minutes. I cried-and begged him to stop. A few hours afterward my right wrist swelled awfully and turned purple. I was treated • at. th.R .Pfilyclinic hospital, but both of my hands are useless, as you Bes. They are getting worse, too." "I was only in fun," said Farrow, in explanation.

The "Raleigh" has been having stormy weather in the Atlantic, but has been behaving splendidly and proves to be a good seaboat. All are well oh board. This is the first of Admiral Dewey's squadron ot" warships to be bound for home. She has on. board a number of men who belonged to the crew of the flagship "Olympia."

This, Mr. Morehouse, when recalled, denied. ' Tomorrow some of the medical ofll- «:«•» v.-hn served in the Cuban campaign will be examined. 33MITTE.P DISAGRKKABLE ODOR. Lieut. GaTrnpfer described the man- Hpr of ^receiving the fresh beef at the depot at Lakeland; said it earrift in :in ordinary, express car wrapped in bur- Sap bagging. Two or three total assignments' of meat .were rejected. He stated tha.t much-of-the-beef hac' been sour, acrid 'and bitter, and emitted a disagreeable odor when the burlaps •were removed. There were spots of a light green hue on the beef when the bags were removed, showing it to bo tainted. 3Ir. Gampfer said that on one occasion while the agent for Armour & Co. was present, his attention was called to the spots, and he replied that the beef was all right, saying, said Mr. ttampfer: "Thy spots are due to the chemicals we put on the meat to preserve it and pi-event its spoiling within sixty hours called for by the contract." This agent said that it was-'impossible to keep the beef in good condition, for that length oC time. He stated, however, that thereafter!' he would have meat put in tin boxes, but tha meat continued to conie with the spots on it. CONSIGNMENTS REJECTED. Mr. Gampfer then presented a memorandum kept by Capt. Carmichael, his predecessor as brigade commissary, phowiirs what meat had been rejected from the 1st to the 17th of August. This showed that the total consignment was rejected on the 5th, 6th and 7th o€ Au- pust, that 282 pounds were refused, on the 2nd of the month, and that no entries were made on two other days. On spine occasions .chunks were .cut out of'the meat' arid condemned. Mr. GampEei" thought'Mr. Morehouse was the agent who had.,spoken of the use of chemicals. The conversation had taken, place .in the •_ presence oC C'apt. Carmichael (who afterward committed suicide), and Dr. Castle, Mr. Gampfer had gotten the impression that some kind of a liquid composition had been used for glossing the meat over, but he had not given the matter much attention, as Ira supposed that 1C chemicals had been used they were harmless. CANNED MEAT BAD. Maj. C. Webb, who -was Gen, La.w- ton's inspector-general, gave testimony concerning the msiat issued in the Santiago campaign, referring especially to the canned roast beef. "It was not good," he said. "It was non- iiutrttive, stringy, fibrous and had no taste. It looked like the fag ends of beefstea.k. It was opening, your mouth and l£t the.moon shine into it. It was not satisfying, something we did not want and could not give.away, even to the Cuban troops, who preferred hard bread." Maj. Webb said he had tried to 'eat the beef, occasionally, when very hungry, but never received any satisfaction from it excepting after vegetables were procured, when it was used as hash to some advantage. - He did not ro-gard it as-a suitable i*ation for the army. "It was a weighty thing- to carry, and a waste of time to eat it." alaj. Webb said he had found the refrigerator beef generally good, though • some of it became putrid In the hot climate. He had never heard of embalmed beef until, lie returned North. COL. WOODRUFF'S STORY. Col. C. A. Woodruff, purchasing officer for the Commissary department .at New York, -\vas recalled. He said he had rejected some tenders of canned roast beef, but he did not remember the names of the bidders In any such cases. He stated that in one instance canned beef, which had been shipped to Liverpool, England, -was brought back to this country and sold for the use of the army. This purchase amounted to 350,000 pounds. The beef, as he understood it, had been stored in, Armour's -warehouse in Liverpool, and had been sent abroad with the view of selling It to the British Government. Col. Woodruff had letters read from representatives of various, firms engaged in canning beef, all saying that the txeef sola to the army was of first- class quality, and of the same quality aa.the. beef shipped to foreign countries and sold to the Navy department In large quantities. The witness said ' he heard many complaints concerning this: beef from officers returning from Cuba, but that one or two> of them spoke.-, favod-ably of It. He also said that a considerable quantity of the bee!;,Cuba had been returned to New Sorkj-iJMMl-' that he'. had _test'ed _it_and f6'piMl J*tt:~to be-in excellent "condition and-palatable food. : ; ; -In: ^conclusion, Col. Woodruff /asked permission to make a remark as the senior officer of tha Subsistence department, saying: "Whether it succeeded or. not, the 'Subsistence department ^as-animatesa by a desire to do air It^cbWa for the beriKflt of the line of the army." ARMOUR'S AGENT RECALLED. Mr. Storehouse, Armour's agent at Tampa, ; -waa\ then recalled. He said there had been two instances in which the'entire proffer of meat had been rejected at Lakeland, and on three or four other occasions a portion of the consignment,had been refused. He retailed a visit to Lakeland early in August when ofte consignment was rejected, and to, his earprise found the lying oft the platform.

New York, March 30.—Nicola Tesla, while expressing interest oC Sig-nor Marconi's achievement of telegraphing across the ^British channel without wires, shows! his admiration temperately, however, because he expects in a, short time to go the young Italian a great many better. Marconi has telegraphed thirty-two miles without wires. Tesla expects to telegraph 3000 miles. Marconi's achievement, which caused so much amazement in, scientific as well as popular circles, will according nunlber oj! cruisers, to Mr. Tesla, be improved on very soon. "Thirty-two miles," he said. "That is not farV-^Not far enough to glv.e a hint of the real possibilities of wireless telegraphy. Wh,«sn I complete the work which has absorbed me for the past two years, I shall do much .more than that." "How fa,r do you expect to telegraph, 'Mr. Tesla?" "From here to Europe," he replied.

IRON AND STEEL TRADE. In many -branches the iron and steel markets have quieted down somewhat. The steel market has been quiet, with only occasional small sales at fancy prices. The Western steel rail-makers have made a further advance of $1 per ton and report some business. The subsc'riptjou books of the consolidation, of the Western and Southern bar mills, were opened yesterday. In Bessemer pig the market has now been re-established by the sales of the association'at'$14.SO, valley furnace. The tube consolidation is reported to have reached the point that subscription books will be opened in a few days. In the foundry iron markets business has quieted down considerably, although reports from Southern markets report further advance. The National Steel company is re- porte,d to have sold 250,000 tons of tin-plate bars to their affiliated interest, the American Tinplate company. cials all wished to visit and inspect the I ship. j The "Raleigh" Htill has her war paint on. At Singapore she met a. Spanish transport having on board troops and sailors from MaiiiUa. Although tlyiiig a warship's pennant, the Spanish ship lowered her colors and permission, was granted the Spa.nia.rtls to visit the "Raleigh," M'here they fraternized with tha American sailors who gave them much needed food and clothing. Many of the Spaniards showed the Americans wounds inilicted upon them by the shells of the American flpgii. The quarantine from Bombay was waived at Aden. At the island of Malta., in the Mediterannean, the ".Raleigh" met the British Mediteranivean fleet, consisting of ten battleships and a The British sailors extended a most cordial ,welcome to the Americans., and the sailors of the fleet and the soldiers of the garrison entertained the crow of the "Raleigh" ashore, the best of feeling prevailing. During her stay at Malta, -the "Raleigh" was" crowded with- British redcoats and blue-jackets. The American officers were entertained at Cairo by United States Consul Harris, and all the British and Egyptian officers were'present.-. "" Tha French at -Algiers- showed a marked difference-. There ; was ho reception exempt from the. British and American residents, although the French officials were polite. At Gibraltar the-crew- of-the "Raleigh" saw the Spanish fleet commanded by Admiral Camara. It consisted of six ships, and was anchored across the bay. The Spanish fleet and the "Raleigh" sailed at the same time, and proceeded close to each other. The "Raleigh" hoisted the Spanish flag and saluted it. The sa.lute was promptly returned by the Spanish Admiral from his flagship, the "Bmpe-rafior Ca.rlos V." The "Raleigh" in two years has cruised 36,000 knots.
