A RICHMOND SCANDAL.
Alleged Manipulation- of n Text

llichmond, Ya., Nov. 5. When Capl.Cu.s
sons resigned the chairmanship of the his
torj committee of Lee Camp a few days ago
without giving any reason lor his action,
it caused much interest. This committee is
charged with the selection of a history that
will be truthrul and impartial to the Con
federate side and which, when selected,
will be used as a text-book m Virginia
schools and possibly all over the bouth.
Grand Commander Stubbs, of Virginia,
who is also a memberor the history commit
tee, accepted Custon's resignation and com
plimented him on hfb record as a soldier.
Tonight at Lee Camp meeting a preamble
and resolution wa, offered, charging that
members of the history committee had
been and were now in the employ of the
American Book Company.andreceiving pay
from that concern, and nailing on Grand
Commander Stubbs to appoint a committee
to investigate those cli urges.
No names were usediu the discussion, and
after some objections to the wording of
the resdlutlou, it was passed unanimously.
Much conjecture exists but it is pre
sumed that Chairman Cu&ous furnished
the information upon which this action is
based, and that his knowledge of this

MAHK TWAIN'S COMMENT.
His Humorous m-niiirk About tho
Last Sitting of the Helehsrath.
Vienna, Nov. 5. The last sitting of the
Kelchrath eclipsed in disorder any of the
previous riotous bcssions. Much or the
language used by the houoiuble members
was too filthy to print. Among the more
delicate expressions were; "drunken hog,"
giwnop loufer,'" "your grandmother was
begotten on a dimgheap," etc, Verest
cimgui, the Kusstau artist, and Mark
1 wain were present logetherat the ittlng.
Verestcltagtn sketched the most prominent
members m the more striking incident. He
said afterwards that the proceedings were
a good substitute tor barricades and street

when a gentleman was summarily hanged
for stealing another's horse.
Then a tribunal was bolemnly formed,
which sat In Judgment on the corpi-e, nnl

he said, were lively, and lesembled those

so far as noise wab concerned the latter
was easily rirst. He was convinced that
somebody had been hanged in the Keich

New York, Nov. 0. United States Senator
Edward O. Wolcott and Gen. Paine, two
of President McKinley's commissioners on
bimetallism, who have been abroad trying
to induce European countries to Join with
America for the free coinage of silver, got
here tonight ou the Campania. Former
Vice President Stevenson, the third com
missioner, was expected on the same
steamer, but at the last minute he de
cided to wait. Senator Wolcott and Gen.
Taine declined to say anything about their
mission abroad, which was successful iu
France, but unsuccessful iu England.
benuior Wolcott saiu that as his mission
had been an official one he did not feel
that he had a right to speak until he had
made a report of tho result of his work to
the President. He said he would stay iu
New York a nay or so and would theugo to
WrtHblng.un. It was possible, he suid, thai,
he might hae something to say before he
left for Washington.

leader of the national silver party, ulio

New Tork, Nor. C.-Senator Tlatt has
recovered sufficiently from the shock he
received on Tuesday to talk about the
present situation. He claims that lie
will control the Uext legislature. The
Democratic state committee claims that
he will not. The balance of power, the
Democrats allege, is held by the New
York city and Brooklyn independents,
Senator riatt admits tliat he will be unable
to control the independents, though ull
of them are Republicans.
"There is no foundation for the reports
or claims that the Republicans have lost
the assembly,'' the Senator said. "The
organization has elected without cavil
or question not less than seventy-eight
men who can be depende-". anon to stand
together and organize the -"ssemblyln the

THE OLIVE PECKKR MUTINY'.
Members of the Crew- Hrought Hack
Norfolk, Ya., Nov. 5. There arrived in
Hampton Roads just after midnight this
morning the American training ship Lan
caster, homeward bound after a two
years cruise in South Atlantic waters.
She had on board members of the crew
of Hie American bark OHve Pecker, of
Boston, charged with murder and ars,n
on shipbouid. These men are John Ander
son, M. Herschberg, John Lynn, Andrew
Marsh, Martin Bcdstad and Juan Bearrid.
The facts in the case are these:
In June last, while the bark was off the
coast of Brazil, Anderson, the cook, in a
fit of rage, shot the commander, Capt.
Whitman, of Boston, while the hitter
was asleep ou deck. It seems Anderson
thought he had been cruelly treated, and
took this method of revfnge. .having mur
dered the captain, Anderson shot the
mate, William Saunders, who was in the
rigging. By this time Andeison seemed
mad with a thirst for blood.
The other members of the crew sought
places of safety, but Anderson, who still
held the pistols, was master of the situa
tion, and threatened to shoot the first man
who disobeyed hisorders. He marshaledthe
men oa deck, one by one, under the muzzle
of hU revolver, and ordered a boat lowered.
He then ordered the men to take their
places in the boat. They obeyed, and
Anderson set fire to the vessel. The
bodies of the murdered men were burned
with the ship.
Then Anderson ordered the crew to pull
abhore. Lauding upon the open beach near
Bahia, in Brazil, the crew drew lots to
decide which one of their number bhould
accompany Anderson, who bad determined
to go to Bahia. The lot fell to Lynn- Ac
cordingly aa soon as Anderson and Lynn
setoff to Bahia the other four men started
ill an opposite direction. At the first settle
ment they told their horrible story.

The government leirrned of the meeting

he would vse the lenders of the mal

The editors of three provincial papers
which published the news of these me-t-ings

ALL OPPOSED TO AUTONOMY
Enthusiastic Meeting in New York
of Cuban Revolutionists.
An Appenl lo the Government of
tlie Republic to Accept No
New York, Nov. 5. The meeting which
the Cuban revolutionists held tonight at
Chlckering Hall to express their oppo
sition to autonomy was one of the most
enthusiastic patriotic assemblages ever
seen in New York. The hall was crowded
from the platform to the doors, and many
could not find even standing room. The
house was decorated with the flags
of America aud those of the
Spanish colonies which are now strug
Eling to bo free.
nie ineeiiug was presided over by Dele
gare Tomas Estrada Talma. All the
speakers were representative Cubans aud
most of them coming from the autonomist
party, their declaration that autonomy
was a failure, is of the greatest import
ance. The manifesto from the Cuban
colony in America, winch was adopted on
Monuay at tne Abtor House meeting, was
proclaimed and enthusiastically applauded.
The document had ucen signed by nearly
Alter the reading of the manifesto the
speechmuking was begun. Dr. Gabriel
Campos, Senor Heredia, Br. Enrique Jose
Be Varona aud Antonio Bravo y Correoso
all reviewed the political situation in
Spain and concluded that the men now
hi office, having always been npiw.sed to
autonomy, their promises to establish this
regime could not be considered sincere.
Senor Jose Carcia Montes and Br. Gcr
niayo also made addresses. The manifesto
says that since Spain has become convinced
that the Cubans caunot be put hack under
the Spanish yoke by force of arms her
ministers are endeavoring by artful
methods to foist a bogus autonomy on
the people and induce them to lay down
their arms. This is merely to induce the
people to biibmit when all the old abuses
would be returned to.
"lne ofler or autonomy," Ihe manifesto
sajs, "is merely an expedient to which
the Madrid government has recourse now
that it has exhausted all the means of
violence and crime." '4To accept this al
leged rerorm,"' the manifesto continues,
''would be not only to regardas useless the
sacrifice and the blood of so many thou
sands of our countrymen, but to close our
eyes to the dictates of experience, the
teacher of foresight. Our ,ad history has
taught us that Spain learns nothing through
"For these reasons, we, who affix our
signatures to this document, representatives
ot the different manifestations of activity
and of social labor in Cuba, mombersof the
different political parties that have ex
isted on the island, welded together now iu
one common aspiration for the public weal
and peace, have a greed to address ourselves
to the government; of the republic, as the
representative of our country, to reiterate
our allegiance to the revolutionary cause
we defend, and shall continue to defend
until the hour of its definite triumph.''
