Halle, and then preached and delivered patriotic addresses to large audiences in Berlin. With Wilhelm von Humboldt and Fichte he was instrumental in founding the University of Berlin, and was appointed professor of theology there in 1810. At an early age he showed an unusual combination of delicate sensibility and a keen spirit of scientific inquiry; and while still under the care of the Moravian Brethren at Barby (1783–5) he began to strike out an independent line. Schleiermacher puts , aside, all dogmatic theology, and sets about constructing a religion in which Kant, Spinoza, and . Christianity shall be reconciled. His discourses, Ueber die Religion o are an attack upon the rationa is m then in vogue. He separates religion from , metaphysics and morality, explaining it (after the manner of Spinoza) as an intuition of the universe, as the action of the universe upon man.

Scott 1839), American naval officer, rn near Frederick, Md. He graduated at the Naval Academy in 1860, and had his first service on the Niagara in Asiatic waters. In July, 1862, he became lieutenant, and was attached to the West Gulf Blockading Squadron under Farragut. After the passage of Port Hudson (q.v.) he served on the Pacific station as executive officer of the Wateree,

American waters. In 1884 he volunteered for the relief of the §. expedition under A.

reeley (q.v.) and after a hard struggle, with the elements, succeeded in rescuing Greeley, and six of his men at Cape Sabine. From 1885 to 1889 he was chief of the Bureau of Recruiting and Equipment and made a good record. In 1888 he became captain, and while in command of the Baltimore in the harbor of Valparaiso in 1891 showed much firmness and decision when some American sailors had been stoned to death by a mob. From 1892 to 1898 he was chiefly engaged in the care and inspection of lighthouses and was chief of the Lighthouse Board, 1897– 98. He reached the rank of commodore, Feb., 1898, and soon after , was appointed to command the Flying Squadron. On May 13 he left Hampton Roads and began the search for the Spanish fleet. After stoppin at Cienfuegos, he was ordere to proceed to Santiago, if satisfied that the Spanish fleet was not in the harbor, but hesitated, and finally received oy orders. Some of his ships had not received a full supply of coal, but after some delay he started, retracing, however, a part of the distance before taking position outside of Santiago, where the Solo ships were discovered ay, 29. On the arrival of Admiral Sampson's fleet June 1, that officer took chief command, but when Admiral Cervera attempted to escape July 3, was seven or eight miles from the mouth of the harbor. Commodore Schley in his flagship, the Brooklyn, was in the thick of the battle, though a sudden turn or “loop' made that vessel was afterwards criticised. The report of Admiral Sampson did not mention Schley's name, and strong popular sympathy with the latter as a victim of supposed injustice developed. President McKinley, on Aug. 10, 1898, recommend that both be made rear-admirals and that Sampson should be the ranking officer, but the controversy over their merits prevented the confirmation of either. Both officers, however, reached the grade afterwards, and Admiral Schley was retired for age in 1901. In July of that year vol. iii. of a History of the American Navy b E. S. Maclay (q.v.) *P. In this work, the proofs of which had been read by Admiral Sampson, the conduct of Schley both before and during the battle was severely condemned, and he was charged with exhibiting ‘timidity amounting to absolute cowardice, with having 'turned in caitiff flight,” etc. Admiral Sampson, however, had permitted Schley to remain second in command six weeks after most of the events criticised by Maclay had taken lace. Admiral Schley immeiately asked for a court of inquiry, which was granted. The court consisting of Admiral Dewey and Rear-Admirals Berham and Ramsey, organized Sept. 21, and announced its verdict, Dec. 13, 1901. Some of the questions considered were, the delay at Cienfuegos, the slow progress toward Santiago, the retrograde movement, the ‘loop' of the Brooklyn, and Schley's bearin and conduct in the foul. Admirals Benham and Ramsey found that he had exhibited “vacillation, dilatoriness, and lack of enterprise.” Admiral Dewey though condemning the ‘loop' and some other actions found the delays justifiable under the circumstances, and

Admiral Schley immediately filed objections to the majority, report, but it was †. proved by the secretary of the navy, Dec. 20, 1901. An appeal to the President was likewise

fruitless. Admiral Schley has published The Rescue of Greeley (1886), with J. R. Soley, and Forty-five Years Under the Flag (1904).
