What General I.co Has to Hay
Mr. AVlso 11111I tlio Campaign.
General Fltzhugh Lee, Mayor Smith
til Richmond, Major Goodloe of the
army and several other Southern gen
tlemen were In conversation lu a parlor
of tho St. James Hotel when a New
York Times rcpoiter was Introduced to
"Have you read an Interview reported
by tho Atlanta Constitution, in which
your opponent speaks rather soveicly
of the Democratic party of Virginia,
yourself and tho platform?" ho was
"Yen," was tho reply, "I havo noticed
Wlso has been talking at Atlanta, and
the substance, or may bo all that ho
said, sent to Now York, it used to bo
that when Mahono nnd his crowd
wauled to talk to tho outside public
about Democrats thoy did so through
tlio Washington JtcjmbUcan, and later
they found a willing spirit lu the un
charitable columns of the Now Yoik
Tribune. Iseo tint Wise declaies him
self pleased with my nominal ion. That
phrase was cut and dried before the
nominating convention, and would have
been applied to the nominee, whooor
he chanced to be. I expected his pre
tense of being pleased, und 1 now nil
(Iclpale his disapprobation when I shall
havo been elected."
"Mr. Who claim that ho will 10.
celvo 120.000 colored votes out of a to
tul of 128,000, and from o0,000 to 00,
000 wlilto votoc."
"Yes, and by the usscillon ln(orui3
tlio wothl witlichui'riclciUtic folly that
ho cxpicts to ho elected by lho negroes.
Ills figures 111 e iidlculou. Why. when
Wlso ran for Congress from the S'ato
at largo ho received only 18 voles less
than 100,000, uud the vote ol Cameron
for Governor was only lltl,-17:i. Since
then inattiiR havo changed consider
ably. Lit November lho old, lho now
white. Republican party, and Ih'i ne
groes gave Bliliio Kit), 1IH I believe.
Now, tho Presidential ehetlon Invari
ably brings out a far larger colored vote
than our Statu elictloiis do, and, more
over, lb' 10 me many old Republicans
who will uotsuppoit W!.i."
"Will 3011 meet Mr. Wlso on tho
"The campaign will bt conducted un
der the dheciiou of tho Democratic
State Commit tei. It lias not been cus
tomary of lata years to have Joint ills
cus'loiis, pipuniably btcuuso feeling
has run high und in tomo Instances
bloodshed luis followed. This all Dem
ocrats deplore and desire to avoid. Tho
coiuinltleo will, I think, not ugreo to
joint discussions for tho leasou 1 have
given, and possibly, also, because the
vast miijoilty ot tho opposition party Is
made up of persons whose votes cannot
bo all'ected by speeches."
Colonel Hill SayH Thai tho Demo
crats Aro Not lJiitliiiNiuitlc.
Colonel Iko Hill of Ohio lays that
ho is not vety inthiislastie about
Democratic prospects lu Ohio. Ho said
last evening that but little if any en
thusiasm existed among the rank und
file of the party out (here.
"That appointment of Noyes, fol
lowed by the selection of Han (sou, and
upon his declining making one of the
most hitler Blaine Republicans a Gov
ernment director ot the Union Pacllic
Railroad, has biokeu us all up. Hoidly
has done a good deal to hurt us, ion.
Wo are not by any means lu good
"But could you noj. get up bai becue,
picnics and other meeting? ami thus
enthuse tho boys?"
"Not much. If there was a peanut
cart out there with a innii yelling what
ho had for salt' and the most eloquent
Democratic speakers in tho party, such
us Vest ami Vonrheis, conducting a
meeting within lifty yariN, the boys
would let Voorhees and Vest go and
surround the peanut teller."
