TUESDAY. FEBl'UARY C lSOO.
On Saturday last a New York trust
company, which is trustee in a mortgage
mad. by -tiie Brooklyn Wharf and Ware?
house Company, applied to Justice Fitz
graiu, one of the judges of New York
city, ior a receiver fur that company.
The Brooklyn Wharf and Warehouse
Company owns property of Immense val?
ue?valued at not less than $20,030,003. The
receivership of such a concern is worth
a large ?sum of money, certainly as much
as $150,??*.. All the (parties In interest had
selected Air. Hugh J. Grant ior the re?

Justice Fitzgerald as ?he selection of

The good work Is began, and we aro
glad tu know that Mr. Glass has re?
ceived communications from various
parts of the State, commending his bill
and urging its passage. The State of
Virginia has a great deal of business to
transact, and all its fiscal affairs should
be carried on in thc most approved, busi?
ness-like methods. The State can no
more affon* to have slipshod -ways lu thc

The prejudice against a Constitutional
Convention has been largely removed by
the conservative -course which the pres?
ent Legislature has pursued. A few
years ago Virginia was more or less af?
fected by the Populis?c sentiment that
swept over the AVest and South, and
many conservative men were afraid to
lend their aid to the Constitutional Con?
vention, because they did' not know, in
the existing slate of public sentiment,what
sprt ol a delegation would be chosen, and
what the delegates might do. These men
feared that thc Populist element might
gain control of the convention, and. if
so, Kansas ideas would be introduced
into the organic law of \rirginla. Eut the
Legislature now in session has largely
calmed these fears. A few of the mem?
bers have been disposed' to make war
on 'Capital and stir the animals up, but
all such efforts have been squelched, and
the Legislature has shown a disposition
to deal fairly with aill legitimate enter?
prises and to encourage thc investment
of capital in Virginia, enterprises.
The peonie of Virginia can always be
dopended upon to do the right thing in the
long run. They may go wrong for a
time, but sooner or later'they will get
risili. They are honest and sensible and
patriotic, and they are not easily led by
demagogues and rainbo-w chasers. Vir?
ginia is herself again, and is now in a
good frame of mind to hold a conventijn
und remodel her Constitution.
Mr. Arthur Sewell, candidate on the
Democratic ticket for Vice-President in
18i'G. has recently returned from a trip
to Honolulu, and in an Interview sent out
from San Francisco, said that he has
always favored the acquisition of the
Philippines. Speaking of the forth?
coming Presidential campaign, he said:
"Mr. McKinley ?*, ill be rc-n injinhtcd
and re-elected* Mr. "3ry.ii*, too, will .
bo re-nominaled. but I fear that he can?
not win the goal. The fact is, the
country has been too prosperous to war?
rant any hope of a change in the na?
tional administration, und people are slow
to lake up reform measures when times
are as good as they are at present. Xo,
I am not a candidate for the Vice-Presi?
dency again. 1 believe it is poor policy
on tho part of the Democracy to select
any candidate Irom the Hast where no
electorial votes may be expected, and,
moreover, 1 am not ambitious to make
the race again. If the D?mocrate call
upon me again, however, ] could not re?
fuse to do my duty."
The Populist members of the Demo?
cratic party always held that it was a
high crime and misdemeanor 1? "have
nominated a capitalist and a director of
a national bank as Mr. Bryon's running
mate, and all such are now having their
sweet revenge. That the man who' ran
with Mr. Bryan in ISf'G ani helped him
to yell calamity should now say that Mr.
Bryan cannot win because the country
is too prosperous, is poor return indeed
to his Populist friends who honored him.
Tn connection with the proposal of Rev.
Dr. Fhohlon, of Kansas, to conduct a
"Christian Daily," Zion's Herald, of Bos?
ton, a Methodist publication, observes:
"There is a. great amount of senseless
talk ahout an ideal and Christian daily.
mainly from people who know the least
about editing papers. We deny em?
phatically the imputation that there are
now no dean -aud excellent dally papers.
There are many that are practically
Christian. They ?tand lor the higher
moral ideals, pure literature, pure poli?
ties, pure homes, honest business. They
are the bulwarks of rigVc-ousness, and
condemn all forms of wrong and evil
unsparingly. In looking for an im?
practicable and visionary ideal we must
not forget the excellent ii'ly puss which
we now possess."

terian, of Richmond, is of opinion that
the design of the whole scheme is to

Right Hon. IT. II. Asquith, addressing
the Tyneside Liberal Association at New?
"Nothing is morn unjust than to seek
to undermine the confidence of the
country and the army in a gallant general
on the strength of a single error of judg?
ment or a single reverse. Nor is it a time
when it becomes responsible persons to
go about whistling for alliance or dazing
the world with exhibitions of freaks of
new diplomacy. The situation confront?
ing us, after reading the painful news of
Buller's reverse, is so serious that it is
hardly possible to speak of any other
topic. We-cannot afford to -spend time
in unavailing regrets. Sterner and more
urgent duties are laid upon us. We
must riot exaggerate th? reverse and dis?
asters of to-day. They may become
victories o? to-niorrou?. At the same time
let us not undcr-estiniate tlit? gravity of
the task before us. The war has develop?

turning point in th? fortunes of the
Empire, it has become Wider and deep?

we have undertaken ou.uht not to have
been seen sooner is a question which will
have to be answered hereafter, but now it
is elrvir that our forces are inadequate. It
is the universal opinion of all parties that
whatever recession Is needed to give the
army irresistible superiority, however
great the sacrifi?es, involved, the country
will readily sanction. The nation con?
fidently expects the government to do
what is necessary. It is our duty as a
nation to be united and calm and to con

moral, upon a task which we cannot lay
down or leave incomplete, without deal?

Oh, the Pain o?
Rheumatism often causes the most in?
tense suffering. Many have for years
vainly sought relief from this disabling
disease, and are to-day worse off than
ever. Rheumatism is a blood disease,
and Swift's Sp?cifie is the only cure, be?
cause it is the only remedy which can
reach such deep-seated diseases.
A lew years ago I was taken with inflamma?
tory Kheuniatism, which became so intense
that I was for wceis unable to walk. I tried
several prominent physi?
cians and took their treat?
ment faithfully, but was
unable to get tbe slight?
est relief. In fact, my con?
dition seemed to grow
worse, the disease spread
over my entire body, and
jag from November to March
*??*?->? I suffered agony. I tried
many patent medicine?,
but "none relieved me.

The operator was laying a trap to

Works Inspect the River Im?
It Is reported that S. AI. Pr?vost, third
vice-president of the Pennsylvania sys?
tem, will bo the Pennsylvania's represen
tive in the Board o? Directors o? the
Chesapeake and Ohio, and that it is
probable that the Pennyslvania will be
given \ still greater representation later
on. Mr. Pr?vost was recently elected to
the directory of the Baltimore and Ohio
to represent the Pennyslvania's interests
in that road. President Cowan, of the
Baltimore and Ohio, however, denies that
this representation indicates any change
in the policy ot" the Baltimore and Ohio.
The general opinion, however, exists that
the Chesapeake and Ohio and Baltimore
and Ohio will practically, if not actually,
be dominated by the Pennyslvania-Van?
derbilt combination, as in this position
the Pennyslvania and New York Central
will be able to prevent rate cutting.
