Our Dlstrlet Democratic friends do not
often get out ot temper; but they aio only
mortal. They cannot blip getting tired
nud n llttlo bit vexed at times, nlthotigh for
tho past twenty ) cars they bav e been nc
customed to waiting, They will not kick
over tho traces nnd proceed lo get up more
team In their boilers than the Inspectors
certificate allows; but they will keep tho
flics well baulad so ns to bo ready for an
emergency. With nil their patience and
sclt-rcstrnint, however, If something Is not
soon doiio there Is danger of n full bond of
Blenm very shortly. They have talked n
gooel ileal nmong themselves, but havo only
given ono sign of kicking. It Is tho ex
pressed detci initiation of somo of them not
to contribute lo thu Democratic causa In
tho several Slates. Hut thoy m ly do so
niter nwhllo. As usual thoy will aid
even Virginia, though It Is true tint Vir
ginia Is nut acting so ns to piescrvo tho
intenlrcot ilmk that has hitherto existed.
Our District Democratic friends reason
something In this way:
Wo hive helped Virginia again and again
and sho has been very thankful for our aid
In fact Virginia Democrats think too much
of us. They nro so foud of us that they
wniittocomonnd live in our midst. Thoy
