The action of Governor Kompor of
Virginia in vetoing tho bill passed for tho
benefit of tho city of Petersburg to taVo
the municipal government out of tbo
bands of its olected officers and vest it in
those of a board of commisilonorns crea
ted by and responsible to tho legislature
has brought down upon his head a ruin
of condemnation from a portion of tho
press and the peoplo of Virginia. Hois
mad the subject of tho fiercest invoclives
from a hot hoaded and unthinking peopl
who imagino the climax of disgraco has
been reached wbon a colored man is in
vetted with official power eithor in an im
portaat or an unimportant position. It is
probably true that the city government of
Petersburg is in tbo control of ignorant,
Incompetent, and very likely dishonest
persons, and it is certainly truo that such
a state of affairs prevents a largo major'
Ity of the people of Petersburg and Vir
glnla from seeing that Governor Kempor,
in vetoing tho bill dosigned to rolease tho
city from such control, did only what n
conscientious and conservative man in his
position could do. In addition to this
abuse heaped upon him for daring to net
according to his convictions, the peoplo of
Petersburg, to convinco him of thoir
displeasure with him, have burned
him In effigy. Poople who have never
lived on the sacred soli of Virginia, who,
without passion or prejudice calmly
contemplate Governor Kemper's action,
can by o means enter into the fierce an
ger, which seems to grow instead oi di
minish, in the breasts of the "conserva
tives" of Virginia toward him. It is to
the first, and not to the lest, Governor
'Kemper may look for the commendation
which his firm performance of duty de
serve. THK APRIL. MAQAZINfc.3.
