IN A FIGHT WITH ADMIRAL . DEWEY JS STILL ALIVE SAN PEDRO. Calif. Feb. 22.-(Associated-Press) - Willia ni 1 1 Savage, an attorney here, is credited with be- Ih; the, only man who won ja fight with the late Admiral George Dewey. The fight was a fistic engagement between the two men and took place on the quarterdeck of the old sloop-of- war Mississippi in 1862. Dewey was then a second lieutenant and Savage was a private in the Marines, and on the day of his fight with Dewey was acting as orderly to Captain Melan-chton. In a letter written on the L. S. S. 01ympi by Admiral Dewey on June! 16, 1S9S, the original of which Mr. ! Savage treasures, the hero of Manila j Bay recalls his fight with Savage. He j wrote, in part: "I trust I have my! tpmnnr mnrn in hnrwl imu- " I Mr. Savage, a former judge and state senator tells of the fight as follows : "1 had been instructed to take orders troin no one except Capt. Melan-chton. I went to Lieut. Dewey to report one bell. " 'One bell. Sir', I said. " 'Strike it," he ordered. " 'The captain has given me instructions to take orders from no one except himself,' I replied. " 'You strike that bell,' he commanded. " 'I won't,' I retorted. " ' I'll make you do it.' " 'You can't do it.' "Dewey then struck at me and knocked me to the deck. I leaped to my feet and rushed at him. He went down in a heap against a hatch as I struck him on the jaw. and I leaped upon him when he got up. We rolled around on the deck for more than fifteen minutes before being separated by the sergeant of the guard. I was thrown in the brig. I was brought before the mast and Lieut. Dewey was there also. I was covered with blood, having had no op portunity to wash, but Dewey had washed and changed clothing. His face was badly battered and cut and both eyes were black. 'What the devil have you men been doing? roared the captain as he looked us over. 'I bad no business striking him. sir, said Dewey. " 'I am to blame,' I retorted. "Dewey turned to me and said: 'I beg your pardon, sir, but I should not have lost my temper and struck you while on duty." "The captain was astonished at this display of politeness from two men who had been so badly battered by- each other's fists and told us both to go back on duty." In his letter to Judge Savage, Ad miral Dewey said: "How few of us who were on board the old Mississippi, ithen are alive now." That was written in 18S, and today Judge Savage says he is the sole remaining member of. the old Mississippi crew. Judge Savage was born tn Ireland in IS'I6.
