COMORN, KINO OK? ?HUE COUNTY,
VA., October 8.?For ?ome time past the
subject of fining the county offices here
next spring; ha? been very freely dlscus?
i? by all clas.es, and now It 1? receiving
quite as much attention as the pr,.-, nt
?ongre?nlonal campaign. Even at this
:*arly period, next spring's scramble ?or
be variou? county offices promises to t.e
me of the warmest and moat Interesting
ocal contests In many long year?, and
t>ut for prudent end Judicious manage
ment on ttie part of the leading Demo
:rat? here It would most likely become
?ntangled, to some extent, with the pres
>nt campaign work. The county offices
ire filled by excellent men, with whom
?early, or quite, all of the citizens ?.r?
istlsfted, yet there are other good mm
*/ho have had their eye? on these office*
or some years, having waited, they aay,
or their "turn" to come around, and now
tome of them claim that they not only
itood out of the way, but worked hard
our year? airo for the election of the ln
;umb?;itts, with the understanding then
hat they would be candidate? 'next
line." The indications now are thit the
?reaent offive-hol 1er? will be candidates
or re-election, and that those who have
or Bome years aspired to these placea
rlU enter the race as opponents. Both
the incumbent? and those who want t
BBOeaed tln-m in office are good and triu
? Democrats, and 1? It can bo shown .hat
there was an underetan.ling four * car
ateo, as alleged, that the waiting as
pirants should hav-i the field this time, ol
course, there will be no opposing Demo
cratic candidates. Or, If the question
could be submitted to and directed by a
regular nominating convention, a "bitch"
could be averted, but It has txjen demon
strated In past year? that nominating
conventions by Kinn ?deon-a Democrats
are not always expedient and best for th-j
party. It la hoped that all the? aspirants
will reach conclusions satisfactory to
themselves and their friends before nny
party friction ia caused.
The sturgeon season on the Potomac
! hae closed and "passed to history" as the
' most unprofitable season ever known
here. Some of the moat energetic and
' experienced fishermen on the river labor
ed the whole season, beginning early In
- the summer, without catching a ?ingle
i aturgeon, and not a man of them caught
enough during the season to pay one
! fourth of hi? expenses. Some advance
[ the theory that, owing to the lack of rain,
. the water was bo clear that ?turgeona
' could see and avoid the nets, and other?
I are of the opinion that aturgeon? did not
i come up the Potomac at all thia season,
' poeelbly remaining In the bay. etc, where
the water was not so clear.
