been au iutoresliug figure in the
iuvestigatiou of tho gold briek rob
bery here, haa left the city, uutl is
reported that be has gone to Hot
Springs, A?k., where it is believed
tho schotuo to dolraml Mr. Witliers
?was hatched. It is pretty well
known that many sharpers bung out
ut Hot Springs during tho winter,
and Nome received information be?
fore he left here that led him to bo
liovo that certaiu persons, who woro
interested either directly or in
directly in ttio affair,might bofouud
there, ilo will probably go to Hot
Springs with the knowledge and
approval of the otlieials liere.
A well-known citi/.en of Powhatan
?who holds a public office was here
to-day, uuil told mo that politics are
becoming very interesting in that
couuty. Ho said it looked as il
every rualo citizen over 21 years of
age wonld be a onudidntu for oilico
next Bpriug. Matters have not pro
greased far enough to learn whether
or not purty lines will be drawn.
Mr, W. W. Flanagan is a candidate
for ro-electiou to tho oilico of Com
monwealth's Attorney, ami my in
formnnt said ho would certainly win.
Mr, W. J. Pilkiuton baa boon asked
to rnn against him, hut will deciiue
to do so. Mr. Pilkiuton is a Demo?
crat and Mr. Flanagan a Republican.
The Republicans and 1'oj.nilists will
have a largo majority in l'owhalau.

The statement of the Governoi
and Attorney-General in reference
to the school book contract was
made public here to day uud excited
much interest. It is printed in
pamphlet form and copies wer '

generally expressed after reading it
was that it was a strong paper and
unanswerable by thoso who claim
