Richmond, Va., May 8.?The long
vexed question as to the authority of
Virginia and Maryland over violators of
the oyster law in the waters of the
Chesapeake seems in a fair way of set?
tlement In a manner satisfactory to
both States, though not In manner at
first contemplated by the Governors of
the two States.
On the night of February 23. 1899>
Captain William Parks, of the Virginia
police boat, pursued across the line in
Tangier Sound and nrrestcd the crew of
the Water Lily, and took them to Tan?
gier Island. The next day the police
boat seized the Minnie Estelle, crew
and cargo, the vessel at the time lying
In White Cove, Maryland. All but throe
of the men captured escaped, or were
liberated; the three have been In jail
at Onancock, Accomac county, until
liberated the 24th of April. The boats
were hold at Tangier Islnnd until or
don <l released by the Governor on the
3d of the present month. The crews of
the two .us wore charged with dredg?
ing oysters on Woman's March Rock, In
Tangier Sound, and wholly within the
Jurisdiction of Virginia.
The men were indicted by the Acco?
mac gi and jury, but were never tried.
There was quite a lengthy correspon?
dence between Governor Tyler, of Vir?
ginia, and Governor Lowndes, of Mary?
land, over the case, and Attorney
General Montague, of this state, and
Mr. Galthcr, the Attorney General of
Maryland, conferred over the matter In
Washington. The result of the corre?
spondence and conference was that an
agreement was reached which Governor
Tyler was hopeful would establish a
precedent, and settle the entire qucs- j
tlon. once for all. Iiis proposition, to
which the Maryland authorities acced?
ed, was that the men hold should be
discharged from custody, and that the
boats should be sent back to Crlslield,
their home port. At the same time he
was to grant to the Commonwealth's
Attorney Of Accomac requisition papers
for the released Offenders, and the Gov?
ernor of Maryland was to issue rendi?
tion warrants as soon ns the papers
wero presented- In this way It was
proposed to rear rest the men as soon as
they reached Maryland soil nnd return
them to Virginia for trial. Governor
Tyler was advised by Attorney General
Montague that the Executive had the
authority to release the vessels, but not
the crews of the boats.
Tills arrangement did not meet with
the approval of the Judge of the Acco?
mac: court and tho Commonwealth's
Attorney of tho county. They did not
like the Idea of surrendering the boats,
or tho men. and Commonwealth's-At
torney Gun', r would not consent to
make requisition for the two, which It
was the purpose of the Governor to
have released. As a result, the pris?
oners were released on April 21th, nnd
the boats were surrendered last Wed?
nesday.
This action, of course, prevents the
establishment of a precedent such as
the Governor desired, and which he
thinks would be of Inestimable benefit
in the future. Heretofore Maryland
oystrrmen had nothing to fear except
the danger of capture by Virginia po?
lice-boats, nnd whenever tho boats were
out of sight they came over Into Vir?
ginia waters and dredged until the po?
lice-boat reappeared. Under the plan
that Governor Tyler desired to estab?
lish they would be liable to bo arrest?
ed any time after the offense h,id been
committed, nnd with the dancer of
having detectives ever mingling with
them, and the pledge of the Governor
of Maryland to surrender trespassers on
rendition warrants, the depredations
would cretalnly he greatly lessened, if
not broken up. The details of the plan
of settlement likely to be finally adopt?
ed arc not yet made public.
AFTER COUNTERFEITERS.
Georgo Barker, of the United States
Secret Service, arrived here this morn?
ing to look Into the case of the coun?
terfeiters arrested her*? Friday night.
In the preliminary examination of
Georgo and Carlos Fase they showed
every inclination to shield the woman,
Emlle Fusi, who, they say, had noth?
ing to do with the crime. She has a
good face nnd good manners. She is
not believed to be guilty.

ans, sons of veterans, and Indy guests,
