PEACE IN SAMOA.
CHIEF JUSTICE CHAMBERS AND
ADMIRAL KAUTZ SUSTAINED.
(By telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.)
Washington, Juno 2:'.?The Secretary
of Stale last night received a dispatch
from the Hon. Bartldtt Tripp, United
States Commissioner at Samoa, saying
that peace had been restored in ihe
island; tho commission had sustained

Admiral Kautz reported his arrival at
San Francisco last evening by tele?

made no report upon Samoan affairs.
This will probably be committed to the
mails. His otlioial superiors are fully
satislied with his conduct while at Apia.
The Admiral retains his assignment as
commander-ln-chlcf of the forces on the
Pacific station, and the Philadelphia

STATE CONVENTION FOR BRYAN
(By Telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.)
Louisville. Ky., June 22.?Tho second
day of tho Democratic convention was
a blank s.> far ns proceedings of record
go. Under the surface, however, it was a
busy day of electioneering and wire pull?
ing. Two short sessions were held, one
in the morning and one In the even?
ing. At the former, committees were ap?
pointed and a recess was taken until
evening to allow them to work. This
evening the Credential Committee, hav?
ing scarcely begun Its Work, the con?
vention adjourned until 9 o'clock to?
The committee will havo to dispose of
some 300 scuts. Its deliberations will
govern the length of the convention,
and. if radical action be taken In any
one direction, it may effectively Influ?
ence the nominations. The Stone-Goo
bel combination is still master of the
situation, having control of tho ma?
chinery of I he convention. This was
demonstrated twice to-day In the forc?
ing of an adjournment.
Chairmen Itedwlne and the other
temporary officers, It Is believed, will
be retained in the permanent organiza?
To-night the Hnrdln people are Imisy
working on the Stone delegates, for It
Is In this direction their only hope lies.
They are using the argument that the
Ooebel followers are using the Btone
Goebel combination for purely selfish
purposes, ami that they will attempt
to nominate the Kenton county leader
for Governor, regardless of the tacit
und rstandlng that Stone should re:
ceive this prize.
Mi auwhlle there Is no sign of weak?
ness in the combination. Stone or Goe
bel may he nominated for Governor,
and the report of the Committee on
Credentials may decide the race. The
make-up of the remainder of the ticket
will depend upon the selection for Gov?
ernor. The platform will declare for
Bryan und silver, nnd Is likely to con?
tain an anti-trust pi.ink.

THE CONTROVERSY OVER REAR ADMIRAL SCHLEY.
Tho enemies of Hear Admiral Schley, after attempting to prove that he did
not smash Ccrvera's fleet, arc now using the Brooklyu's loop story to provo that
Schley was afraiJ of the Spaniards and was trying to get away. As usual. Schley
is saying nothing. The conduct of the Brooklyn before oud after the loop incident
would seem to plainly indicate that setting sway from the Spaniards was tho
last thing Schley was thinking of. He has ul.e.ady explained that tho loop was
necessary tu prevent the BrooUlyu from blsulcetiug the lire of tho American ships.
I iff in hia sincerity and show that his
advocacy of autonomy among the in?
surgents' was treated as treason.
Tho charge against the Colonel was
that in conversation with Filipino oili
cers he predicted that disorders with?
in the insurgent territory would iead to
civil war, and, therefore, ho naid he
considered autonomy under the Ameri?
cans preferable to independence. The
Filipino Congress tried him on thc
chargc of treason, ana a heated debate
over autonomy followed. Finally, the
Colonel was sentenced to death, but
this was commuted to 12 years' impris?
onment, on account Of his previous ser?
vices to the cause, after an eloquent
plea upon the pari of his counsel.
