The ■V.ral offerings were the most elab
orate ever seen here, many of the large
pieces being sent from a distance. All
along the streets crowds of persons stood
as the funeral procession passed and for
a square from the church the streets
were- Tilled, hundreds not being able to get
into the building 1 .

relatives in Maryland, reached home this

The details of the awful taking- off of

J'lu-ir destination was in the vicinity
of House Mountain, about eight miles
distant. On their return a rainstorm
arose about 3 o'clock, which was a terrific
downpour: in fact, a cloudburst, which
in a short time swelled the mountain
streams to rushing- torrents.
In attempting to cross a tributary to
YVMstle Creek, six miles from Lexing
ton, the surrey in which Mr. Pole and
his family were riding- was overturned
and the whole pary thrown into the
.surslnir, seething waters. The stream

carried on the shoulders of his enthusias

There docs not now appear to be any
prospect of any long* and bitter wrangle
over the platform.
Hon. Eppa Hunton. Jr., who is close to
the insicie, gives it as his opinion that the
document will be a short concise declara- •
tir.n of the time-honored principles ot t.io
'party, and that it will fight shy of na
tional questions. Tie believes it will deal
almost entirely with State issues and that
if national questions are referred to it
will not amount to any endorsement ot"
the Kansas City platform. Other strong
leaders share this opinion. It is said that
a resolution looking to endorsing the na
tional rjlatform of 1900 will be presented,
but it is a safe bet that it will go the
way the one recently went in the Ohio
The Credentials Committee will likely
have a brief session. Most of the contests
will be aisnosed of in short order.
WILL SEAT BOTH.
When Warwick and Shenandoah coun
ties are reached, both delegations are like
ly to be seatoc. from each county with a
divided vote. If lio committee heard evi
dence and argument in the latter, they
would sit a w-^-k, for Mr. Brenaman has
enough data to fill a newspaper, and
Judge E. D. Newman, the leader of the
other faction, has perhaps equally as
Lobbying and log-rolling- are the- order
of the day here, but most of it is with
reference to the Attorneyi-Generalship.
Senator Jeffries ami his friends say he
is an easy winner, but his opponents do
nat concede this by a great deal. Major
Anderson's hope has apparently grown
into confidence, and his forces have been
greatly augmented by recent arrivals.
W. A. JONES.
Congressman Jones Jins his coat off nnd
says the convention should name Mon
tague, LeCato arid Anderson. Capt. J. W.
Foster, a leading Democrat of Nelson, is
active for the T.exington candidate, and
Mr. J. H. Lindsay says Albemarle and
Charlottesville will give him a. majority
of their votes, after the latter has. com
plimented Judge Robertson, who is a
native of that section.
Judge J,. W. Williams is here, and the
extreme southwest is solidly behind him.
That section further this way is divided
between him anil Judge Robertson.
Mr. E. Tx"e Trinkle, a. handsome lawyer
from Wytheville. who is a crack conven
tion orator, will name Judge Williams.
Hon. R. Tate Irvine has retired from tho
race for Lieutenant-Governor. and is help

An effort will probably be. made to have
these sentiments embraced in the plat

however, that the convention will not
