Such is the Decision of the
Advisory Council.
BRIBERY MOT CHARGED
Gou. Hundley, Counsel tor the Gntnd Com
niiindi-r, will AdvUe Him to Accept
the Action of the Lynchburg
Sleeting as Final.
(By Telegraph.)
VTXr-ITIBilTipiG, Jan. 20.?The advisory
council of Wie Cramd ?Camp, Confeder?
ate Veterans of Virginia, >met here to?
day at noon to consi<Jer the Stubbs case.
The committee of the Grand Camp,

The afternoon session was taken up
with -the reading of the stenographer's

The night session was devoid of sen

I seemed to prevail in the discussions.
After considerable debate the following
resolution was adopted by a vote of 21
?to 10:
"Resolved, That we, the council, find
upon examination of the evidence he
fore us, that Commander Stubbs has
not been guilty of receiving a bribe,
but, we do find that he should no longer
be in command of the GrandiCamp, or
I a member of the history committee of
the Grand Camp."

THE OHIO LEGISLATURE.
lo Witnesses Examined Yesterday by
the'Senate Investigating Committee.
(By Telegraph.)
CODIT1M1RCS, O., Jan. 20.?The Senate
investigating committee met tonight
arid adjourned until tomorow morning.
No witnesses were called and there was
I no discussion, the meeting being purely
n-mal. There are various rumors as
-. what course the committee will pur
ue. One was to the effect that Jared
. [Bliss woutd bf calk-dl for exarmna
ion. Another, that the committee
..ourld devide to report back to the Sen^
ate that they were unable to proceed
with the iraiuirey, and asked to be re?
lieved from furthe duties.
Senator Fink's bill to gerrymander
the Congressional districts of the State
was introduced In the Legislitutre he
fore adjournment today. The main
purpose of the bill, and (Mr. Finck
rankly acknowledges It, is to legislate
Jongressman Grosvenor out of office
and put a Democrat in his place.
T8?e bill Is one of the direct results of
the anti.-Hanna combine, and the 'Dem?
ocrats say they can pass It with the
[aifl of the Republican bolters.
MARYLAND SBNATOPJSHip.
Thiee Ballots Tak'? Yesterday With
out Any Election.
(By Telegraph.)
ANNAPOLIS. MD., Jan. 20.?The gen
erefl assembly of Maryland in joint s s
si .n toda>> took three ballots for a Uni
'ted Senator without result. They were
as foiows:
The first baliot resulted as follows:
CkToCcJmas, M; Shaw, IS; ghiryocjc.
Gorman, 47; Purran. 3: tMu.likin,
Fir.dJay, 2. Total. 114. Ne-:essary to
choice. 58; ulsent. 3.
Second hai'lot; iJcComas, 40; Shaw, 1;
Shryoek. 2; Gorman^ 47;Pairan, 3; Find

114.
Thir.ii ballot; UrComas, 40; Shaw, lt>;
Gorman. 47; FlnUiay, 2; Parran, 3'r Mul
likln. 2; Shryoek, 2, Total, 114.
The effect of today's work Is to leav.
the solution cut the Senatorial problem
a* much in doubt and the end of the
sirugige apfariintly as f*r off as it was
before the balloting began.
But oik thing is made clear any that
is the fact that perfect sympathy and
unity exists between the Democrat:
and the l?UUng Ik-publieuns In the Bal
rimore City delegation. Another fact
Is that the "eleven" are seemmgly
stronger than evir and one fuKy und r
the control of their leader. Together
with Six men from the "eastern shore"
and Senator Day, of Howard county
they voted alternately for Shaw andi for
Bartber at a signal from their kader.
This appears to have discouraged the
McComas men. who are not nearly so
confident tonight as they have been.
There is now no doubt whatever that
ttit. Democratic contingent stands ready
almost to a mon, to cast its ballot for a
Kepublhan at a signal from the man
who is in control.
Who that Republican will be is as yet
unsettled, but the belief that it will be
Wl.ilam T. Malster, mayor of Balti?
more, or Major Alex Shaw, Is growing
steadily.
It was confidently expect'd that the
name of Postmaster General Gary
would figure in todays balloting, but
no such thing ocxurreU, nor it it likely
to occur whiile the present conditions
exist.
As a result of last night's conferences,
the Harber votes went to Shaw oil the
first ballot, and oil at the Shaw votes
?xcept that of Speak-r Shatter went
o Barber on thi-> second, returning to
Shaw on the third. This was planned
a sort of counter demonstration to do
ay with the effect of the 38 signa?
tures appended to the McComas caucus
Mist, and it had Its effect in that the
caucus has been indttfinlteliy postponed,
the matter having been left in the hands
>T Senator Scott, of Washington county,
chairman of the state central commlt
. with power to call the cmucub to?
gether wlv never he thinks the time for
has arrived. A scheme that failed was
e contemplated1 delivery of the six
Pararn votes to McComas, notwith?
standing that Mr. Parran, hims-;lf. ask?
ed the delegat s composing his follow?
ing to oid in carrying out the program.
It was asserted here thtb afternoon
that Immediattely after the adjourn?
ment of the Joint < onventSran, thi 1 aders
of the Democrats and those of the
M'alstcr people reached an agreement
that the Democrats would cost th;4ir
vote for Malster on Saturday if Malster
c nld guarantee the support of 15 Re?
publicans, it bring found necessary to
have this num'btr because- of the fact
that four ctf the Democratic Senators
have thus far refused to be parties to
any agreement having in view the elec?
tion of a Republican- for Senator. It
was further agreei that the votes should
go to Major Shaw, if it was found that
?i union upon Mayor Malster could not
be brought about. It is further asserted
that Postmaster General Gary was ap?
pealed to by telephone to block this
scheme by .ailing off Senator Day and
the " eastern shore" contingent who
voted with the Shaw men today and he
promised to use his influence In tha? di?
rection.

BOSTON CITY DAMAGED.
(By Telegraph.)
HARWICH, Jan. 20?Ths British
slteamer Boston City, Captain Wyatt.
which arrived here January 17, from
Newport Nft.ws, grounded while sne was
making this harbor, owing u> the foggy
wea'ther, and was stuck fast for seven
hours before she was floated. During
the time sand en-UrsU the pip s on her
sides, causing gome damage to her ma?
ch ihery.
The Boston City reports that du: tag
a gale which was encountered on Jan?
uary 7, In mid-Atlantic, lv r hatch tar
pauttins wtre washed off by the seas
which boardied her and her cargo is
MamUged Prom water Which entered the
hold. Water flooded her cabins.
CREW REFUSED TO WORK.
The ?steamship Ursula Bright, Captain
F. R. 'Whitson. arrived at Old Point
Wednesday evening, twenty-eight days
out from Havre, France.
?Captain Wihitson reports having en?
countered a succession of terrific gales
and hurricanes op the passage.
The ship was also short-hand*!, thir?
teen of the crew 'having refuse! to do
duty. These men asked for their dis?
charge at Havre on December 20, but
as the articles stated that the.ir lime
was not up until December 31, the cap?
tain refused Mieir request, and they
then decided net to turn to.
Captain Whitson tried every means
possible to get ithem ti go t> work,
but they would not, so as a last resort
he put the stubborn sailors on bread
?and water.
Their aticles of agreement sb;w that
they shipped at 'Sundcrland in .Tuiy for
St. John. N, iB., ithe agreement not to
extend beyond the 31st day of Decem?
ber, 1897, or the vessel's first subsequent
return to iher port of destination in the
United Kingdom!
The steamer left HfUTe on December
22, so Bheir time expired in mid-ocean.
The. captain and officers had a nvist
trying time working the ship through
the many storms.
The mep claim they have a good case
and1 will likely settle the matter in the
courts.
ANOTHER MUTINOUS ORBW.
The French steamer Eugenie* Reine
?arrived at Old Paint having on boar!
a mutinous crew, which was brought
here under conditions similar to those in
the case of the Ursula Bright.
The steamer, it is stated, left Paris
bound to Hampton Roads, December
16. 1897, and a few days out twelve of
the crew mutinied and refused to work.
They made no hostile demonstration,
and the captain made the following
terms: The "strikers were given the lib?
erty of the vessel, but were put on
hard-tack and water for the remainder
of the voyage, and the vessel kept on.
?though short handed.
The vessel met heavy gales nnd terri?
ble seas, but arrived safe and sound.
The 'Frendh corjsul 'has been notified tf
the affair and the captain is now await?
ing the action of that official ip refer?
ence to the case of the mutineers.

DFJMC1CRATIC CHAIRMAN.
Senator 'White Placed at the Head of
the Congressional Committee.
(By Telegraph.)
'WASHINGTON, Jan 20.?The new
Democratic Congressional committee
tonight elected as chairman Senator
White, of California. The election of
secretary, which bad been expected,was
postponed to await the action by an
Organization committee of seven which
will be appointed by the new chair?
man.
The election has attracted a good deal
of attention .in the 'House, owing to
its bearing on the speakership contest.
Senator White was supported by the
friends of Representative Bailey, who
are favorable to that gentleman's can?
didacy in case the next House is Dem?
ocratic. Messrs. McRae, of Kansas;
Richardson, of Tennessee; Osborne, of
Wyoming and SM'iers, of Indiana, had
been prominent in the race. Owing to
the speake:?hip issue, however, the
friends o? 'Mr. iBailey felt that it was
desirable a Senator should head the
committee so that the chairmanship
and the speakership should be entirely
separated.
The meeting was quite fully attended,
thirty-three members being present,
which, allowing for the several "orphan
States," made almost a full representa?
tion.
As to the secretaryship, it is generally
conceded that Lawrence Gardner, the
present .incumbent, will retire. The
most prominent candidate before the
organization committee is James Kerr,
former clerk of the House.
The election of Senator White is re?
garded as a dSstincl triumph by the
silver men who were anxious to have
a chairman whose record on the sub?
ject of 16 to 1 was unquestionable.
