"It ia understood that Mr. Lee was
In arrears for board at his lodgings a.t
$2C Freemason street, where It isnot be
lieved there"-. -has been foul play."
There has been, it appears, much un
tasin<!S6 among Mr. Lee's: acquaintances
in Norfolk.. AnoLher special had it that
"a search of his lodgings showed, that
lio left no effects. '._ Lee had been a vic
tim of acute indigestion, and it is feared
tha.t he • committed suicide."
Still another special Irom Norfolk told
the following story:
"On the morning of .-December ISth he
left his boarding-house and shortly after
entered Ws office, at tlie Produce Ex
change. H« told the office boy lie was
not feeling well, and would go out for
awhile. 'From, that moment hi* vanished
without leaving a traco.
"Dr. Ha.rgra.ve Uiought at one time
that a ..body found, fioa.tiiig off Lam
bert's Point Was tliat of Mr. Lee, sup
jwsing suicide on account' of melan
•'The descriptions- did not tally, how

fleop mystery.'-'
When seen last night at his home, on
.south Cherry street Mr. Lee stated that

there December ISth, because lie was
unwell. He had intended to give up his
IKisltion there and return tt> Richmond

Mr. Lee states that immediately upon

3Stu, ho promptly advised the directors
of the Norfolk Produce Exchange of his
departure and whereabouts, and of tho
occasion of his sudJen journey-home.
He says he left no unpaid debts in Nor
folk, and that persons there owe him
f GO. After an illness of a. fortnight orj
more he Is much better now, although he
.plainly shows the effects of ■recent^slckj"
The reports of- IVIr. Lee's mysterious

Mr. C: Aylett Ashby, ■ the young at
torney, wlio shot Mr.- Edwin A.- Marye
in Newport News a few days ago, is well
known in Richmond, where he received
his collegiate education.
Mr. Ashby is a native of Culpeper
county, and comes 'from a prominent
family of that -section. He-was for
some time employed here "by the Rich
mond Railway and Electric Company,
and subseqeuntly entered Richmond Col
lege,; talcing the law. course at that in
stitution. He was a very hard student,
devoting every moment of his time to his
studios, mid, though quite young, soon
acquired a most excellent standing in
his classes.
Among his associates at college were
men much, older in years, and experience,
and many, too, who had had superior
educational -advantages in early youth.
But it was not many months before Mr.
Ashby had a recognized standing in^his
classes, and he graduated with high
honors, in "the spring" of- IS%. \ '-, ''
Tho.se who 'knew him at /college re-,
call Jiim'as'a. iuaii' or indomitable energy
and boundless cap-Jicity for work. In
addition to his law studies, he joined
one of the literary societies, and though
inexperienced as an orator at that time,
he made rapid progress as. a speaker,
and captured at" least one medal for his
marked improvement. ■ Mr. ; Ashby was
a member of a well-known Greek letter
fraternity, and. chose as his associates
at college the most promising and pro
gressive, of students. In those days he
was a cordial, generous, impulsive
young ; man of genial disposition and
agreeable manners, and was possessed
of the highest sense of honor.
After leaving college his rise in his
profession was unusually rapid^ and at
present .he has -a, high standing at the
Newport News bar. . .
.Mr. Edward A. Marye, who now lies in
a critical condition in a Newport -News
hospital, as a . result of a pistol-shot
wound In the abdomen, inflicted by Mr.;
Ashby,' is the second, son of Colonel
Morton Marye, Auditor of Public Ac
counts of the State of Virginia. , For
many years, he resided at Ashland, the
home of 'his father. Besides being a fine
student and a "man of culture, Mr. Marye
in his earlier youth, was a line athlete,
being an especially "fine" amateur,; base
ball player. ■ He was educated for the pro
fession of the civil-, engineer, and was for
years" connected with? ; the engineering
•corps of the Southern railway. Of sturdy
and stocky .build, he is 'fa! man of unusual
physical as well " as mental- powers, and
his' flue physique" may enable him to
withstand the desperate wound which
now menaces' : his, life/; For/several years
Mr.. Marye^ and- one .of his ..brothers,;
Captain P. Thornton Marye, have resided
at Newport News, and for ayear or more
Mr. Marye has been City. Engineer there,
a position he ha s ■ filled wi th: credit to'him
self and satisfaction :to the town. .

This Is the general wish^of .. Senator,

the dispatch: as requested,, and last night
received a telegram from Senator Daniel,
saj'ing he would allow the resignation'
to be withheld, iintil after he had seen'
Mr. Glass Saturday night. ; Mr. Glass is
going, home then. ; ■

Mr. Glass may be able to induce Sena-;

effort -to-do so. I _ ■"■'■ ..V .-.':
The members wish-to have Senator

Therimpresion is general that Sena

Incident of O. «fc O. 'Wreck.'
An account has been ""printed . of . the
terrible ', railway wreck near: Lynchburg,
in which four of the trainmen lost their
lives, and in 'which others had remark
ably fortunate escapes from death.. The
escape of Mr. AVillard Carter, son of Mr.
John W. Carter, a prominent ; . citizen" of
Danville, and himself a chemist, located
at Holcomb Rock, Va., near, the scene of
the wreck, was by such strange chance
that it will be regarded :by many as
providantial. . : : ' ". •' .
Mr. Carter was among those engaged
in the effort to push the cars back from
the menace of ' the overhanging : ava-r
lanche, and had aided the crew of the
train in removing x the passenger coach
to safety. He was with those .who had
returned to push the baggage coach back,
but being hindered in the: free exercise
of his nhe musculari powers, he had just
run back a few yards to place his over
coat ■ in a dry place when the huge preci
pice fell upon: the faithful band engaged
in saving the property intrusted to v their
care. ' ■ -■-■:.■ '; - „' ■ : ■■ ..■ , -
Only this fortuitous circumstance saved
Mr. Carter from . being among : the number
crushed to death beneath ■ the vtons of
earth and .: stone that fell; from the cliff
above. It was certainly a close call and
a remarkable experience. r -

saloonl of Mr. Michael J: "VVard, 5 north.
Greene street: '■_' Mr. Brady was shown a
picture of the missing man last night and
immediately recognized- it as -.the portrait
of a' man who visited' the' place"! once in a
while, but *he " did not know his . name.
EjA-fter thinking awhile, Brady said:.
"That man was, .in here on : Christmas
Eve night (which was really early Christ
mas morning) with two gentlemen whom.
I know, to be students, -but whether they
are -medical or -.dental' students I can't
say. Both of the other men have been
here frequently before, but I never heard
their names. The three came' in, sat at
a table by the corner, ■ and the original of
this picture ordered three bottles of Moer
lein beer, one for each in the crowd, and
after drinking that they, left, . about 1 A.
M. The originalof'the picture was with
out an overcoat,' but' had : his coat '.but
toned up. closely." :
. No amount of questioning could elicit
anything further from Brady,; and at this
point; the trial stops. The -picture's/as
recognized by two young ladles who were
in the place as that of la man whom they
■had seen -there at odd ~-j lntervals, but
neither of : them .; remembered seeing"; him
on the. night; he disappeared. .. -t-'.j;
As told exclusively in; the Sun of'yes
terdayi the last time .^lr. Newhouse .was
seen previous to'this was when he alight
ed from a. Madison-avenue car f - at '; the
corner of - Baltimore and -Ho ward streets
at 12:15. : The euuthority for this .state
ment Is Mr. Aff elder, j .who " ( accompanied
him to tlie Monumental' Theatre. The
' great ' mystery.: has been ■ where Mr.■New
house could : have gone completely
to lose" himself in that portion of , the
city; 'especially on a night .r when rthe
streets .were j- crowded." .;■ If Brady is .not
mistaken "it would appear ■ that he
thought .that he ; would : take one - more
drink' before going 'ftojbed at the Howard
;-llb'ua"; which -.".was; only, two ;and:a half
squares distarit; and; started: for'.Ward'^,
; meeting I. the r tw6 .i students o n the way.
'' He : stayed in the saloon \ until somewhere
■ around , 1 A. M., ■ and went out. : ?From
tha^t" point all is a blank." „/
Perhaps • never : in the history of.^Bal
timore has a ; town 'been so : thoroughly
seairqhed for a man \ as : it ; has f been lor
Mr. .Newhouse, but so fair as knonn
the police have met .with absolutely no
success,; ; and r. late - last night ", they > were
not ■ aware of the fact that he ' had
been''seen;^ter r :i^yins\Mr^;'!^eiderHTba
young man • wa3 . well acquainted In the
western part of the city, and <a> number
■"of pedpiel recognized' his "photograph, but
no one remembered seeing him during
■the past eight days. : His business ,as
a cattle buyer was known^ but: he was
not considered a novice, and' fce had. the
reputation of being able to take /cafe -of
himself under, any and all circumstances,
iwhichr makes hia case all the more re
markable. People in every \ place' s.vlslt-'
