Richmond, Vn., August ? Muuy
leading Democrats are trying to keen
the currency question out of the cam

on both sides arc opposed to tnukiug

tneir positions. They are not likely to
succeeil very far. Hero in Kic?mond
it is only tbo silver people who desire
to press the mattur, and ibey say no
man wi.o is in sympathy witti Clevo
laud' shall be olnctcd. Richmond is
eutitlod to !ive dolegates, and it is ttio
nurpoEU of tbu silver people to havo at
least that ntimbor of candidates favor
lug the white metal. When asked
what the Legislature next wiutor will
have to do with this question they will
tell you that if the "gold bugs" con?
trol the (iuuural Assembly, resolutions
lndorciug the liuaueiul policy of the
administration will be passed, but if

Mr. Gregory bus with mm a

olotuiug. Now, Mary has not lived
with Joe for two years, having left him
for unolhur man, Joe, in bis letter,
tells hot bo kuons she is guilty, and
that he bad warned her thut some evil
would come to her. Ills letter throws
some light on the situation and is a
powerful document tor those who be?

Gregory states that he knows positively
thut the Richmond military induced
Mumble to tell thut white meu story,and
if forced to will convince the public of the
truth ol tbu statement. Ho says tne
