Lallc?Great Dcraind For
The prospects for Demoeratic success
seem to be improving daily, and lt is
the opinion of the best leaders of the
party that they will contiuue to loolv
up until election day." when it is pre
dicted that the Stai>: ticket -will be
elected by a good majority and that a
Demoeratic Legislature will be chosen.
Members of the Constitutional Conven?
tion returning here from their homes
nearly all agree that the party has made
great strides toward retrievlng their ap
parent losses in the last few d-ays and
that the Republicans are now surely on
the run. Much of this is laid to the fam
<his social equality dinner in the White
House at Washington. as well as to the
fact that the susplclous element of the
party to becoming satislied that no white
man is to be disfranchlsed, since tlie re
assuring statement3 of Messrs. Goode,
Ellyson and Montague and other party
and convention leaders on tho subject.
it was said yesterday by a prominent
loader, who had just returned from
Xorthern Virginia. that he had it on good
authority that the big Republican lead?
ers in Alexandria had practically gtven
up all hope of electing Colonel Hoge;
that they laid most 01 the blame at the
door of President Roosevelt. .for inviting
negroes to dine within the White House.
I ever a party was put on the defenstve
in Virginia this extraordinary incident
has placed the Republicans in that posi
tion, and the Democrats say they shall
not recover from it during the canvass.
The Demoeratic State Executive Com?
mittee will meet at Chairman's Eliyson's
ottice to-night to make another attempt
to settle the much vexed Xorfoik county
contest between the Cromwell and Cole
man factions, both of which are clamoring
This will be the fourth meeting held
for the same purpose. The first one re
sulted in the recognition cft the Cromwell
faetlon by a slim majority, and it gave
such poor satisfaction that. there were
interesting subsequent developments,
among them being the retirement of
Senator Glass from tho committee. The
second meeting resuited in fi.'ing a Iater
date 'for reonening the case. At this
meeting tho Cromwell witnesses did not
a.ppear, and a further postponement was
found necessary, and to-night was
set for the fourth meeting of the
committee. Both sides have sone on and
filed their notices accordlng to law and
are making their fights before the people.
Chairman Doherty was busy yesterday
comp'.c-ting arrangements for the serir.s
of meetings billed for this city during tho
campaign, most of which will he addr;ssed
py members of the Constitutional Con?
Hon. Eppa Hunton. Jr.. and Hon. K.
I^indsay Gordon will open the ball at
Corcoran Hall to-night and a great crowd
is expected to hear them.
A long list nf prominent Demoeratic
leaders have been designated a seat on
the stage and act as vice-presidents. Both
the speakers are populnr orators and will
no doubt be greeted by a full house.
Congressman Flood and Hon. C. A.
Swanson will speak at Old Market Hall
on Friday night. and this will probably
be the largest meeting held during the
Judge James W. Marshall is billed to
speak in Fulton on the same night. but
the date may be changed on account or
the meeting at the Old Market Hall on
the same night.
Other meetings arranged for during
the canvass are as follows:'
Belvldere Hall, Thursday, October 31st,
Colonel Wiiliam E. Cameron and Mr. A.
Colonel George Wayne Anderson and
Mr. E. C. Folkes will address the em
ployes of tho Locomotive Works during
dinner hour to-morrow instead of
to-day, as heretoiore announced.
On Friday at noon they will speak to
the men at the Trigg shlp-yards. Other
speakers will be heard at bot":: these
places on other dates.
There is no Demoeratic orator ln Vir?
ginia who is doing better service on the
stump this fall, or whose serv^ojs r.rc
ln greater demand, than those of Judge
James W. Marshall. of Craig. Judge
Marshall was in Rockingham with Mr.
?Montague and Congressman Hay yester?
day, and he will speak almost every day
and night until the campaign is over. "He
is doing more effectlvo work than any
man on the stump." said a leader. in
discussing it last night: "and the party
ought to Co something handsome for
him in the near future.'' Judge Marshall
said Sunday night, before he left for Har
risonburg. that he would speak in I'ul
ton next Friday night. That he will fJl
any hall where he speaks goes without
saying, as he is one of the most popular
stump orators in tho State.
The scrvices of Congressman Claude >v.
Swanson are greatly in demand tn the
stump throughout the State. Among
other places where he is wanted by the
party leaders, ls ln Xelson county cn
next Monday, whicn is the last court
day before the election. So far. there
are no speakers assign?-d there for that
day, and a strong poll is being maiie on
the popular Fifth District leader. D->1?
gate Bennett T. Gordon has made the
rt-quest of the State. chairm ui t<> sr nd
Mr. Swanson to Lovingston, and in all
pivbabiiity :v.- will go.
Mr. Swanson's brother married m'o.ie
of th emost prominent famnies in the
county. and he is widely^noV'Ular up th^re.
That a speeeh from him following th<>
one made there by Mr. Montague on
last court day would result in great good
there is no doubt. and every effort will
be made to secure his scrvices.
Mr. E. Lee Trinkle. chairman of the
Demoeratic Committee of Wythe county
and a prominent young attorney of
Wytheville. is in'the eity to eonfer with
Chairman Ellyson as to poiitical matters
in his county.
?Mr. Trinkle came into prominen-ce as a
State leader <by his splendid speeeh at
Xorfoik, naming Judge S. W. Wil'.iams
for Attorney-Genera!. He said last night
that his people were ln Iine and wrre
making a game fight, both for the State
and legislative tickets. He thought with
a hard fight such as would be made up
to the day of the election. Mr. Simmer
mon. the Demoeratic nominee, would de
feat "Baby" Blair for the House of Dele
gates. Mr. Trinkle said the Roosevelt
Washlngton incident had stiffene'd the
courage of the white peop!e ln Southwcst,
Va., and that it -was worth a gresft deal
to the Demoeratic party In that section.
Mr. Hu^h Gordon Miller passed through
Richmond Sunday on his way""to Rcck

He stated that he was ready to de
