SATUROA? EVENING. NOVEMBER 5.
Thk New Orleans Times Democrat .allud?
ing to the recent ex-Confederate demonstra
ti( natMucon,Ga.,says: "Itiswell,indeed,to
(?how, in the most striking manner possible,
the intention of our people not to pay the
plight eat attention llo whatever Northern
prejudice still exist on tbi.'i point." It is
writ, indeed, that some Southern uewepapere
have the manliness to represent correctly
the true feelings on this point of the nier,
v. ho were Confederates from principle and
conviction of duty. F^very honorable ex
Confederate accepted tbe consequences o
defeat in good faith, and is now as loyal ft
the Union as ho ever was to the short-liver
naiion for which ho risked and lost so much
bat he i-j a sorry one who denies the righ!
and justice of the cause for which be fought
an?! who is deterred by the fear of conse
quonces from showing respect for the met
he willingly followed in that cause; and
what's more, no honorable ex Union soldiei
thinks the better of any such man.
SJENATOB Daniel, in hi* speech at Rich
mond Thursday Dight, admitted that there
in s une dissatisfaction with the present ad
tniuUtratioti. This admission 9how3 thai
tho Saoator is one of the few democrats it
Congress who not only have their eyes opei
to what is going on around them, but havi
tho manliness to tell what they see. Bu
tho elei lion to bo held in this State nexi
Tuesday has nothing to do with tho present
national administration. That election wil
decide whether the race troubles in Virgiuia
now happily quieted, shall be revive*!, anc
whether all the other manifold evils of the
Mahone blight shall return with treble force
to alii c tho State and ell her interests, and
all her people. Virginia's prospects aie
now favortb'e ; but with General Mahone
again in control of her uifair?, her outlook
will be gloomy indeed.
The man who prefaces to wautg<.od
government, and fails to vote f r it when he
has an opportunity, is more to blame for bad
goverrmeut than the man who vo't-s for the
latter. It would be well for Virginia if all
lurvoteis would recollect this trueism next
Tuesday. Tho man v%ho votts for had gov?
ernment may do so fiom ignorance; but,
whatever the cause, he is at least honest and
brave enough to act in accordance with hie
feeling*;, and willing to lose the lime and
take the trouble required to do so. On the
contrary, Ihe man professing a desire for
good government, and yet failing to vote
for it, renders himself justly liable to the
imputation of insincerity, moral cowardice,
or of euch entire absorption in selfish inter?
ests as to be utterly regardless of those le
lating to tbe weifare of the community in
which he lives.
General Mahone's ill infoimed Wash?
ington organ of to-day's date, says: "Men
of Virginia remember Washington's advice.
'Cherish public credit.' Tho most effective
way to do that will bs to vote the republi
can ticket this fall." There's richness for
you! The paper that supports the man who
made repudiation possible in Virginia, and
who calls the creditors of the State "Shy
locks," advising Virginians to "cherish pub
lie credit"! Such talk tends to make the
General ridiculous. For bii iwi stkehe
should have it.-topped.
[Spocial Correspondence of the Alcxa. Gazktts]
Washington, D. C. Nov. 5,1887.
Mr. J. K. Tucker, last night, completed
his brief of the Virginia habeas corpus case
he will argue before the V. S. Supreme Court
Monday week. When asked this morning
by the Gazette's correspondent what sort
of a case he had, he rep i.-d ih ? best klad of
one, and that ho was confident of gaining it,
as it was preposterous to suppose that tbe
officers of a State could bo enjoined from
the execution of a State law. Whea asked
if Mr. Conkling was of the same opinion, he
replied yes, and that so were all the other
counsel engaged on tbe side of the State.
A well-known Virginiau here to day, in
talking about Mr. Murat Halstead'a recent
assertion that if the democrats were success?
ful in 18SS, the war amendments to the Con?
stitution would he wiped out, and that Con?
federate pensions, and war claims and war
debts be paid, and a grayback system of
finance be adopted, said if the people of bis
State could be induced to believe all that,
Gen. Mahone would have to do as Mr. John
Wise in 18S4 said he would do iTMr. Elaine
should be nominated, "go in his hole and
|>uii the hole in after him."
Col. Cab Maddox of Virginia, now here,
says he came to attend (be races and to re?
cover some of tho inany articles stolen from
the Warrenton Springs, of which he is the
proprietor, by a colored woman he employed
(here last season. He tays she stole ail she
could lay her bands on, and that most of her
clothing is made of material stamped with
his name. He will have her carried back j
to Virginia on a requisition for trial. The
Col. says he and some of his party have not j
leen successful at the races, and that, not!
having provided themselves with return
tickets, they will start for Warrenton at.
twelve o'clock to night on foot.
It is reported here to-day that if Assistant |
Postmaster General Stevenson be not ap?
pointed Postmaster General wben Mr. Vilas ?
is transferred to the Interior Department, it '
will be because of Mr. Vilas'* opposition. I
Mr. Stevenson is a strong candidate for the j
next Vice Presidency, and bis possession.of
the Postcffice Department would boom bim t
considerably for that position. Mr. Vilas, J
however, wants the Vice Presidency for j
himself, and his influence with tbe Pres;- j
dent is said to be potential.
Democrats here to.day from Alexandria,'
Fairfax, Loudon and Fauquier counties say !
that while the usual democratic majorities
in them may be cat down a little next
Tuesday by democraticlukewarmness.all the
democratic candidates fcr tbe Legislature in
;hc;e counties wili Ie e'ectel. Unless the
democrats hero be egregiously deceived,
they will have a complete walk over in Vir?
ginia, and gain several Northern States.
According to the programme, yesterday
was the last day of the races here, but the
managers last night decided to continue
them to day, and fcur days next week, com?
mencing on Wednesday, so as not to detain
here vo/ers in adjacent States.
Hopkins, the New Hampshire man who
sent a counterfeit infernal machine to Chief
Justice Waite olght before last, for the pur?
pose of selling a sensational account to the
newspapers, is at large on bail, and probably
nothing will be done with him. He appear?
ed in the police court here this morning to
answer a charge of conspiracy, but his trial
was postponed for a week. The curious
package that was received by the Secretary
of War yesterday contained a powder ro
commsnded for cleaosiDg the bareees used
in the army.
The recent visit of Mr.. Saltonstall, the
mugwump collector of the port of Boston, to
the President, is said here to have been for
the puroose of trying to indues tbe mug
wump vote of bis State to be thrown for Mr.
Levering, the democratic candidate for Gov?
ernor of Massachusetts. Tbe admioistra
tioh's policy from the Crst has been to carry
as many Northern States as possible, and
though Mr. Iiovering is utterly opposed to
mugwump?, aod the mugwumps tchim, itis
tboucht that the President's avowed sup?
port ol him, us made known by Mr. Salton?
stall, may be sufficient to induce the latter
to cast tbeir ballots for him next Tuesday.

An Address from Mr. Bitrbonr.
To the Democratic Voter* of Virginia :
la the closing days of (ho pending canvass
in Virginia the domor-m ic executive com?
mittee is unwilling to conclude its labors
without making some public statement of
the progress of the campaign and submitting
at tho same time an earnest appeal to its
political friends and associates to bring out
tbe full force of tbe party to the election
which takes, place throughout the State on
Tho time for argument is past and the
hour for action is at hand. The result of tho
approaching election will determino wheth?
er or not the control of the Legislature of
the Stuto is to pa?s from the hands of the
democratic party and its policies bs again
dominated by that faction which a few years
ago exercised almost absolute sway over
tho destinies of the Commonwealth.
Intelligence received by the committee
from accredited sources of information in
every section of tho State indicates with
slight exceptio* s, tho undiminisbed power
of the democratic party and its undoubted
ability to elect a majority of the members
of the next General Assembly. Tha only
apprehension which prevails arises from the
apathy which is alleged to exist in some of
, the counties and tho apparent indifference
i o the voters r.s to going to the polls and
, casting their ballots on election day.
Is there any good ground for this coudi
? tion of things? If it arise from too much
confidence in the otrength of the party to
, elect its candidates tet it be remembered
i that its strength can ouly he manifested by
i tho delivery of its ballots at the polls. Tbe
t, superior activity of a minority often over
? comes the negative or less positive efforts of
. And why should not the democratic party
of Virginia maka every possible silort to
- maintain iusupremacy in tbe government
^ of the State? Can the organization afford to
give up all the valuable fruits secured by
the burd earned victor'es iu the elections of
ISSo 'Sl 'So, aud surreuder unconditionally
3 to the tender mercy of its political adver
' What this mny he can be inferred from
1 what it has been in our past experience in
tho legislation of the Slato.
, To allow such result to be accomplished
J would violate tbe memories of the pas'- ?n
i tagon:?.^ the best interest of the preseut aud
1 destroy tho brighest hopes of our future
( If any dissatisfaction has b6en created by
. disseueions among ourselves, let it be subor
. dinated to the higher and more important
r considerations of the public weal. Mistakes
t of omission and commission have doubtless
' been made by the representatives of our
party, State and Federal, but these are in
t cident to tbe conduct of all human affairs,
} and do not furnish proper justification for
9 deserting our principles, and, least of all
j for inducing co-operation with that most
I objectionable of political organizations
fc which has its homo seat in the Northern
States of the Union, is intensely sectional in
spirit, and is led and directed by the Sher
mans and the Forakora, el id omne genus.
The spirit of Virginia, it is to bo hoped,
5 has uot yoteuuk so low as to bo willing to
J desert tho Much of the old party founded by
1 her own Jefferson and join bands with re
3 publicans of such radical tendencies.
3 What possible excuse can any right mind?
ed man of Virginia present to justify him in
taking ground against the democratic party
' aud iu co operating with the extremists of
? the republican party, who uow dominate,
' for the most part, the political -iluations at
the North ? The Usuo is simple and signifi
? caot, and must ba susceptible of eaBy appro
? oiation by tho intelligence of the people.
I Not only is tbe success of the democratic
? party n quired at the approaching election
f by every patriotic consideration, but it is
also demanded by the obligations of Vir?
ginia to her sistor democratic States of the
Union to maintain her position in the demo
51 cr.-Uic column.
It is also imporlunt that Virginia should
indorse tho wise and patriotic course of tbe
j nntional administration and approve its gen
, oral measures of public policy. This mani
'. festation can only he made by sustaining the
democratic candidates on election day.
Your political advereaiies arc thoroughly
' organized for tho conflict. It is reported
that large sums of money ba.ve been sent to
' the managers to influence public sentiment
and to corrupt electors at the polls. Be this
as it may, tho occasion demands at the
hands of the democratic voters the exercise
of the utmoat vigilance and the employment
of all honorable means and efforts to elect
j their candidates.
The committee trusts that the democrats
of Virginia will exert their best energies in
> behalf of the success of their candidates, and
will look to the full delivery of the veto in
every city and county of the Commonwealth.

Blamed for Telling the Truth.?The
following story serves as an illustration of
the ridiculcui attitude in which a man may
sometimes unwittingly plnce himseif. A
fow days ago a Washington newspaper cor
respondent called at. tho house of S;crc-tary
Bayard to see bim abc-u* a matter of news.
The bell was answered by the Secretary's
man-servant, evidently a green one.
''Is Secretary Biyard in ?" was asked.
"Ye3, sab," said John.
"Will you take him this card ?''
"Yes, sah. Tuke a seat, sah."
The gentleman seated himself to awa't
Mr. Bayard's coming while John started off
with the card. It so happened that the
room into which ho had been ushered was
in close proximity to Mr. Bayard's room,
and bo soon became intensely amused and
interested in the colloquy between tho Sec?
retary and John.
"Tell him I'm not in," was the irate re?
sponse to the servant's announcement.
"I can't do dat now, sah, 'cause Use done
already lol' him you was in."
"What did you do it for ? How often have
I told you that you must say to alt callers
who ask for me. 'I'll go and see,'so as to
give me a chance to be 'out ?' "
"I don't know, tab, why I didn', but I
done tol' him dat you is in."
"Then go and tell him that I am busy ;
engaceelnnd can't seo him."
"A'right, sah, I'll tell bim dat, but de
gemman .done heah ebery word you done
say. He right down sta's derc."
Sure enough, "do gemman" had, but it
was then too late to mend matters.
John came down stairs, his face wreathed in
smiles, and tuld tbe visitor that Mr. Bay?
ard "is in, eab, but is wery busy, and can't
see nobodr, sah."
And so Mr. Bayard saved himself from
tbe terrible ordeal of an interview in a not
very commendable manner. The newspa- I
per man left in a better humor than any in ;
I terview could have put h;ra, and poor John !
! wants to know why a man should be
j "jumped on" for telling "de truf."? Balto
J There were 225 nnsiness failures in the '

But he Panned Out Well ?"Speaking
of greenhorns,-" said an old Virginia con
doctor to a correspondent of the Railroader
recently, "one morning just before the war,
as. my train drew up at Brandy station, a
chap in a butternut suit and a home-made
wool hat rushed up and addressed me as I
stopped to the ground :
" 'Is you th'r clerk er this ye'r kyar ?'
" 'I'm the conductor ; what do you want ?'
"'I wan'ter go ter Washintun on this
; y'er kyar.'
" 'Well, get aboard,' I said.
I "He climbed the steps and rapped on iho door.
j When ho rapped a second time some wag inside
called out,'Como in!' There wero at least fifty
' passeugcrs in tho car. Ho began at tbe front seat,
' shaking hands with every one clear to the back
! cni, and asking csch 'How d'yr do'/' and then
'How's ye'r folks ?' Of cauiso, it was a regular
circu3 for the other passengers. He lived forty
mihjs back in tho country, aud hud never seen a
train before. When he stepped off the car here in
Washington I felt sorry for him ; but, will you
I believe it, that greenhorn is to day one of the first
i merchants of Washington, and is reported to bo
! worth over $200,C00.?Bailroader.
[A fatal flaw in tho above yarn is apparent
I when it is remembored that the Virginia Midland
; then tho Orange and Alexandria) Railroad had its
terminus in this city before the war, and that the
passengers for Washington and tho North were
transferred from tho cits here to the 6teamboat
t-eorgo Page. Her.ee the "greenhorn" spoken of
could net have stepped from the train in Wash?

While smoking and talking, one of tbe men

shopmate and room mate, a man named
Piper, a somewhat startling statement.
Be said that there were many men in jail iu
Chicngo accused of throwing the bombs at
the Haymarket, but the police had not
caught them all. He then mysteriously
whispered that he himself had stood next
to tho marj who bad thrown one of the
bombs. This story Owens told at the in?
quest tinder oath. He belonged to tbe samo
group of anarchists as Spies and Parsons.
