Henry County Bulktin.
As to whether or not Tlie Times is an
?excellent newspaper we defer to tiie judg
ment of ?ur e_*teemod contemporary, but
we are iu modesty inclined tc tliink that
our contemporary is right. AVe know tliat
lt is right when it says that The Times
ls an "'odd politicLan." Tiie a>olitician
runs with tlie crowd and Beeks to bc- pop?
ular. The Times tliinks for itself, formu?
la les its own opinions on pubiic Questions
and expresses xliem from time lo time
without regard to 'tlie question of popular
ity. S -me of our contemporarries have
conctdved the idea that The Times strives
to be unpopular, but that is not "true. The
Times loves to be approved and popular
applause is sweet to its cars. because Tiie
Titues is intensely traman. But T:ic Times
does not strivo to be popular. 11 has a
higher aim than sinij.ly to win the plaadUs
ol" men. it prcfers to win their abidin_
respect, and if whe-n tbe record has been
cJascd it shall be said of The Times that
it baa made tlie worid bet er for havins
lived, that will bc a sweeter consob-tlon
tiian any possing popularity which it
might gaiu from year to year.
Wo are not fond of discussing The
Times or of explolling ils ach.evemcnts,
whatcve-r they may be. But when we take
a r-ckoning ol Ihe fight which we have
made during tbe past ten vears along
\-arious lin?.? and of present results, we
are by no means uislicartcned. T'ae Bulle
tin saya that Tiie Times "enjoys Uie dis
tlnction in a land of ariti-trus-t iieople of
_>ctii^ abnost tbe only newspaper ln or out
of Uie- State that boldly champions the
trust princlples und trust methods." That
is not a h.ir _t_l_m_a- Tbe Times lias

Wc are a little surprised that our Henry

towards honest elec-ions. \\rhen we first
began the agitaUon of this aaest-Qh The
Times was bltterly denounce'd by some of
the party men as the enemy of the Dem?
ocratic party. But we continued to fight
for a cause which we knew to bo right,
and while we boast not that -we have
wrought any great revolution in Virginia,
tbe simple fact is that there is so great a
demand throughout the length and breadth
of Virginia /or honest elections that the
people have determined to Call q. consti?
tutional convention for the purpose of re
h-oving all obstacles in the way of a free
ballot and a fair count. Those who a few
years ago were denounclng The Times for
crying out against election frauds are
now among tiie most earnest of those who
demand reform. ,

seems to be coming our way.
DANIEL AND BRYAN.
We print in another column an eloquent
and well mc-rited tribule to our distin
guished fellow-citizen, Major John W.
Laniel, in which our correspondent. who is
himself a noble Virginian, shows why
Major Daniel is worthy to occupy either
the second place or the first place on the
National Democratic ticket. All that he
says of Major Daniel was said by us in
our poor way, when The Times several
months ago guggested Major Daniel as a
candidate for the Presidency.
Our Culpeper correspondent and The
Times are not the only ones who beiieve
that Daniel is the man for the nomination.
The Petersburg Index-Appeal says tha:
the suggestion of Senator Daniel as -Vice
President on the ticket with William Jen?
nings Bryan is. in a very important sense,
a east; of putting the horse behind the
But, strangely enough. there are many
people in Virginia who do not take this
view. Soaie time ago, when The Times
suggested Major Daniel as nominee for
the Presidency on the Democratic ticket,
there was a wail of protest throughout
the State from certain sources. Nothing
unkind was said about Major Daniel, but
the politicians were in high feather be?
cause they thought that they had dis
covered in this suggestion a movement to
injure Mr. Bryan's candidacy, and they
gave evidence of the deepest resentment.
.So infatuau-d were they with the Nebras
ka orator that they were unwilling to see
him dethroned, even by John XV. Daniel,
of Virginia. Not that they loved Daniel
less. but that they loved Bryan more.
"Virginia wouid be proud, and feel hon
ored, to have her worthy son (Daniel)
Mr. Bryan's running mate," is the way
one of the Bryan newspapers in Virginia
Virginia would be proud to see Major
Daniel nominated for the Vice-Presidency,
but wo protest against the intimation that
Daniel would receive additional honor
from being associated in a secondary po?
sition on a ticket with William Jennings
The 3rranklitt Times-Democral thinks
that it would be a godse-nd to these United
States to have John XV. Daniel a; this
crisis in the Presidential chair, declaring
that "he is to-day the most advanced and
best equipped statesman of this age on
either continent." That is a strong say
ing, but The Times believes that there is
no bet-.er man in the Democratic party
for the nomination than John W. DanieL
In point of intellect, in point of oratory,
in point of executive ability. in point of
statesmanship, in point of Democracy, he
is the superior of William Jennings Bryan
every day in the year.
If the Democratic party would proniul
gate an old-fasbioned Democratic plat?
form and nominate John W. Daniel for
the Presidency it would carry every State
that it can jiossibly carry with Bryan as
the nominee, excer* possibly one or two
of the Populistic States of the far West,
and it would carry New York and other
Northern States, which it cannot carry
with Bryan in the lead.
Fl-ELCDOM XO ALL THE COl_I.EC
ln a letter to James Madison. written
at the time tho Constitution of the United
States was in its forrrtaiion stages,
Thomas Jefferson said:
"I do not like in tiie Federal Constitut'on
first, tlie omission of a bill of rights, pro
viding clearly and without the a!d of
sophisms for freedom of religlon, freedom
of the press. proteetion against standing
armies. proteetion against monopolies. the
eternal and unremitting force of the ha
*beas corpus laws and trial by jury in all
matters of fact triable by the laws of the
land and not hy the law of nations."
Mr. Jefferson once said: *'I have sworn
upon the altar of God eternal hostility
against every form of tyranny over the
mind of man." and his whole life was one
aniendhig sermon upon this text. It ls
not surprising, therefore, that we should
iind him insisting upon a bill of rights
being affixed to the national Constitution,
which should plainly proclaim the elemeh
tary claims of human right enumerated
by him in his letter to Madison.
There are very few men who would not
to-day write with him in disclosing that a
bill of rights, with all the particulars hc
has named should have been preilxed to
the Constitution. And yet, one of those
particulars, though uppermost nov/ in the
minds of men, .is liable to cause more
error and injury than all the others are
likely to produce of good. We refer to the
"restriction against monopoly."
Everybody agrees that government
should not use its physical power, -which
is the united strength of all the people
of tho eountry, to eonfer upon one man
or one set of men an excluslve right to
use a thing which. by nature, belougs to
all the people in corumon. That is a, truth
so obvious that no one will be heard to
gainsay it whenever or wherever it may
But it doe3 not follow that government
shall not use Its physical power to .protect
one man or ono set of men in enjoying a
quasi monopoly of a business or enterprise
which he or they tiave originated and built
up by their own intelligence, energy, labor
and foresight. We do not use the word
"protect" in the sense of excluding all
Others from rivalry with them, butin the
sense of forbidding the others to deprive
them of what they have secured for them?
selves by Uieir own toil. So far as this is
monopoly. it is incumbent upon govern?
ment to guarantee to all men tlie enjoy
ment of their monopoly, for it is nothing
but proteetion to the citizen in his pro?
lt is by not attending to the distinction
between a monopoly secured _y legisla?
tion and a business monopoly that has
resulted from labor iatelligently applied
that so much of envy and misconception
has come to take possession of men's
mlnds. They quote Jefferson and other
great men as authority for their opposi?
tion to monopoly, when they are simply
seeking the destruction of private rigtits
that Jefferson would never have sanc
That sort of monoply that results from
labor intelligently applied is just as neces?
sary to progress and civilization as the
freedom of business and contract, which
alone can secure it. The corrective to any
injurious influences of such mon'opoly
is in the freedom of all men. monopolists
and the rest, alike. If the monopolist
makes undue profits he will certainiy have
rivals. Let afftnen be free.

were in Kichmond yesterday to interest
the people of this city in the Charleston
Exposition, to be held next year. lt is

and the Charleston representatives are
desirous that Kichmond shall be repre

have signhied their intentlon to erect
buildings, and our Charleston friends
think that the exposition would not be
complete without a Kichmond buiiding.

where she has already such a large trade,
her commercial and industrial advan

John Dann met with a very severe and

pond, which had been fattening up on his
hogs. So, arming himseif with a gun he
managed to get a shot into the saurian.
which he thought was fatal, as it lay
perfectly motioniess. He then discovered
some little 'gators, one of which he caught
and which immediately began to-cry, and
instantly the apparently dead one made
for its captor. John, seeing the brute
coming for him, reached up for his gun,
which he caught just below the muzzle,
and in drawing it towards himseif some
thirig must have caught the trigger, for it
suddenly went off and the charge of buck
shot passed clean through the upper part
of his right arm, shattering the bone.

Very few people are aware, says the
Chicago Chronicle, that in the last twenty
years the numbtr of fish in the great
lakes has been deereasing rapidly. It is
a fact that as compared with tr-n years
ago it requires practically double the
number of men, boats and nets to catch
the same number of fish. The Govern?
ment has for twenty years maintained'
a large number of stations along the
lakes where lish have been propagate.l
in enormous numbers, but in spite of all
this the supply ls steadily deereasing.

has a coat, says the Chicago Record,
which is interesting from its long tail

is a wedding dress coat which belonged
to his grandfather, and it was made by
Andrew Johnson, afterward president of
the United States. At the back of the
coat, under the collar, is a ,ittle clip of
cloth, marked "A. Johnson, taiior." The
coat was made long before Johnson at

the patrol wagon were necessary to
transport the prisoners and paraphernaha

Some crowded into closets, others hid
their heads under some hanging wraps,
ostrich like, Imaglning they were con

apparently in a faint. The po!ico say

Prohibicion in Maine.
Editor of T'ne Times:
Sir?In your issue of June lst appeared
an editorial under the title, "Maine's Sham
Prcliibition." Of the whole system of pi
hlbition, you say, "it is a miserable sham
and pretonse," and "is a shockiug display
of pubiic hypocrisy."
Were I not a reader of the New Volce,
and were I not i/osted on the baleful ef
fects and deep damnatlon of the accursed
legalized liquor trarfic, and did I not know
why the prohibitlon law was violated even
in Maine, -1 would most assuredly con
elude from your article that the law itself
is a eurse, and the voting population of
Maine, church memljers inciuded, of
course, was a set of viie, contemptible
hypacrites. But I knew better.
It certainly is a good t ilng to read both
sides of any question tliut has two sides.
After prohibition was thirty years in
force ln Maine, the liciuor trafiic was re?
duced .0 per cent. The State from beina
one of the p-orest and weakest, became
one of the most prosperous. and wealthy
It is marvellous how much is acc-om
plished for the benefit of the home, the
church, the State and the nation, ei'en
when the officers of the law are not In
sympathy with the law, but are in sym

I fire this shot, swlft and strai^ht and
hot, between the eyes of the whining oid
party, whisky apologist: "For every
ounce of real failure to be charjjed
against prohibitioa, admitiistered by men
who are its avowed enemles, a ton stands
against 'regulatiun' as administered by
ofi_cer!- and politicai '/parties favorable
towards it and committed to its support.''
We are prepared to furnish abs .:
proof of this statement.
