?Fourth and ffiroad Streets,
of tho Finance Commltto, -won tho flrnt
speaker, advocating his amendments with
earnestneea and forco. He declared that
ine design of tho amendments proposed
? J'?" ^vcre to safeguard the Interests
or the stato in tho matter and to protect
a_2 n,sl ar,y effort hereafter to socuro an
additional appropriation to erect a Stalo
building at ihe exposition. He contended
that the State was powerless alone to
conduct an exposition of the magnitude
contemplated, and tho pui-poso of the
amendment was to provide that in the
event the government failed to securo
what was deemed an adequato sum from
tho Federal government, tho sum pro?
posed to bo appropriated by the State
was not to bo available In answer to
a. question by Mr. Sale, Mr. Wlckham
frankly stated that ho would not support
the bill, even-with the amendment pro?
posed. He deemed It his dutv, however,
to protect the State and do a"li ho could
in itH Interest. -
PLEADED FOB. THE ORIGINAL BILL.
Mr. Sate, of Norfolk, In charge of tho
Mil on the door; Mr. Lylc. of Roanoke;
Mr. Sears, of Mathows. all opposed the
Wlckham amendments, Mr. Sears mak?
ing tho most elaborato argument against
them. Mr. Sale contended that the
amendment of tho bill at this timo in
any way meant its almost Inevitable de?
feat, for the reason-that In the short
time loft of the session it would be Im?
possible to secure tho necessary attend?
ance to Insure tho passage of the amend?
ed bill- through tho House, He charac?
terized the amendment as nn attempt
to hold up tho United States govern?
ment In the matter, and declared that
tho moral effect of the nnproprlatlon by
tho State was needed In order to se?
cure an adequate appropriation by the
national government. Mr. Sale appealed
to the Senato to vote down tho amend?
ments, and emphasized tha point that
tholr advocate and patron would not
support tho bill if tho amendments were
Mr. Lylc. of Roanoke. reinforced what
the Norfolk Senator had said, and In
doing so pointed out the practical Im?
possibility of "securing tho concurrence
of the House In the amendments sug?
gested. He charged that in the remain?
ing days of tho session it was exceed?
ingly improbable that enough members of
the House would be present to act upon
tho nm-endments, and that the appro?
priation would go bv default
MTt. SEARS FOR THE MEASURE.
Mr. Sears, of Mathows. made tho lead?
ing argument against the amendments.
He reviewed In some d-etail the atti?
tude of the Senator from Hanover on
tho hill in question at tho various stages,
charging that it was hardly fair for
him to ask amendment of the bill when
ho would not support it If amended as
ho desired. He showed that when the
proposition to hold an exposition was
first up Mr. Wlckham had favored tho
action taken at that time. Mr. Sears
deprecated tho argument that the State
was too poor to make the appropriation,
and quoted from Mr. Wlckham's finan?
cial statement somo timo ago to sustain
his contention that tho Stute was ablo
to spare the money. lie called attention
to tho fact that Tidewater Virginia had
asked nothing for many years from tho
State, nnd now wns entitled to bo con?
sidered In this request, In which tho
entire Stato was Interested, and would
bo tho Joint beneficiarlos. Be argued that
the Increase in taxable values, as a re?
sult of the appropriation, would fully
remunerate the Stato nnd make the In?
vestment a good one from the financial
standpoint. The Mathows Senator ap?
pealed for tho appropriation, not only
on business, but on sentimental grounds.
Mr. Hiilsoy. of Lyuchburg, stated that
while his course as to the unamended
bill was then uncertain, ho.was opposed
to the amendment proposed .and would
hlmsolf beg leave to offer an amend?
ment which would Indicate clcnrlv his
attitude In the matter.
MR. WICKHAM'S CLOSING.
Mr, Wlckham. patron of the first two
amendments, closed the debate on tho
bill in a speech delivered In Ills most
earnest and forceful manner. Ha de?
clared that tho exposition was based on
tho assumption that without substan?
tial aid from the Federal government It
could not be successfully conducted on
a scala befitting ttie event celebrated,
and the manner of Its celebration. No
one has dissented from nor denied tho
truth of that assumption, That Is con?
ceded. It is your duty as Senators of
Virginia to safoguard that bill. I do
n? said the speaker, thnt the amend?
ment proposed impairs tho chances of
getting an appropriation from tho Federal
government. If the assumption on which
I started out is conceded, lot us put It
In the bill. So far from crippling or
hampering our representatlyes it gives
them a strong argument with which to
go before Congress, In tho words of old
G rover, "It Is a condition und not a
theory that confronts us," Let us bo
practical if wo cannot bo logical, and
meet this condition squarely
Mr. Wlckham then enumerated some of
the pressing claims upon the finances of
the Stato, and emphasised their Import?
ance to the people of the entire Stato,
nniiibly/tlio appropriations asked bv the
V P. I. and by the Fiirmvlllo Normal.
The speaker then took up tha arguments
of Mr. Sears, stating that In doing so
he would speak to tho amendments them?
selves and not to tho merits of tho bill,
a proposition which would he passed up?
on after the amendments had been acted
on. He took up the resolutions passed
in 1901, und claimed that his position now
was precisely In Uno with those r?solu?
As to tlio proposition advanced by Mr,
Sears to soil bonds and in?rense Hie
debt of Virginia. Mr. Wlckham declared
it wns not to be contemplated nor con?
sidered. Yet if wo puss all those ap?
propriations for which the gentlemen aro
clamoring something will need to bo dona
to meot tlie Interest on thu public di-bt.
If in a moment of madness the General
Assembly br?ales n.way from its moor?
ings und makes these appropriations, a?-'
area. G n g ?51G.??O. now before this bod ?
fil various propositions. It will be neces?
sary to sell these bonds of J500.?0O. Ac?

ADVOCATES WERE AFRAID.
Taking up the argument that the delay
Incident to Incorporating the amendments
would 1(111 tho bill as charged by all the
.puujscrs for the appropriation. Mr. \\lc_
ham contended that three -weeks was am?
ple limo to securo the passage of them
through tho House. Is ?mo the essence
of the' fear of the friends? of tho James?
town bill V'asked tho Senatorin a rhetori?
cal manner, clearly Indicating his doubt
?hat It was. It Is the.duty of the Senato
to givo theso matters Independent
thought and action, regardless or tho at?
titude o? the House. Why can wo not
get the assent of the House to those
amendments? Because IL Is hard to get
the necessary fifty-one votes. It does not i
accord with ray sense of duty to con?
sider whether Ilio amendments will ?et
throufrh the Houso or not. Mr. Wlck?
ham then outlined his own attitude,
showing that he was consistent, fair and
clearly within his prerogative.
Mr. Sears asked: "Will the schools suf?
fer any more or any less afber the United
States makes such an appropriation as
tho Senator desires?"
"I consider the preference of tho Jam?s
tr.wu till over the ?!,;|???? of Farmvlllo
and Blacit&trurg a crimt., -which I bo
llevo tho people of Virginia will condone
It If the appropriation from the national
government bo secured first." said tho
VOTE ON AMENDMENTS.
This closed the debate, and the pending
question was called. It being; on tho first
amendment of Mr. Wlckham's. provid?
ing that no part of the Slate's appropria?
tion should bo available until alter the
federal government shall have appro?
priated a sum which the Governor si.*It
deem adequate to Insure tho success of
tho appropriation. TIiIb was tho first test
vote, It being recognized that tho oppo?
nents of tho appropriation weiid put
forth a strong effort to thus defeat tho
bill. Tho amendment was declared lost?

OPPOSITION'S GREATEST STRENGTH.
Tho nuestlon thon recurred on the sec?
ond Wlckham amendment, providing that
$150,000 be set apart for a Virginia ex?
hibit. This developed the full strength
of tho opponents of tho bill, thirteen vot- j

1 THE HALSDY AMENDMENT.
Mr. Hnlsey, of Lynchburg, then asked,
I and after some discussion of the ro
, quest, -was granted unanimous consent
! to offer his amendment, proposing to re
1 duco the appropriation to $100,000. In of
i ferlng tho amendment tho Lynchburg
i Senator statod his attitude on tho bill.
I He was of opinion that the Stato should
? givo all It could, but doubted whether
I It should give the entire sum asked by
? the friends of tho exposition. He thought
$100,000 was sufficient. In view of other
pressing claims, but os between giving
nothing and tho ontire 1200,000. ho was
? unwilling to voto to gtve nothing. Ho
I therefore urged the ndoptlon of his
amendment, giving SW.OOQ instead of
J'^OOOOO. Tho amendment was voted down
I 10 to 9. Messrs. Hnlsey and Wallace,
! who had voted against the first Wiolc
liain amendment, voted tor the Halsey
amendment, nnd Mr. Byars, who had
voted for tho Wlckham amendment, voted
against the Hnlsey proposition.
Further consideration 0f the bill was
then passed by. nnd the bill was made
a special and continuing order for Thurs?
day at 12:15 P. M. Tho votes on tho
amendment nro regarded as Indicating
beyond doubt tho passage of the bill
without amendment, Justas it enmo from
tho Houso; and. Indeed, Mr. Wlckham
admitted as much a few minutes later,
whan lie referred to ? "tho bill which
has lust boen successful."
STRENGTH OF ??? BILL.
These Senators are now regarded as
committed to the passage of the bill
when It comes up. and all are expected
to be in their seats: Messrs. Anderson,
Barksdale, Bryant, Claytor, Cromwell,
Dlnwlddie. Garrott, Halsoy, Hobbs, Lyle,
Mann. Masslo. Mcllwalne, Moon, Opio,
Balo S-ears, Shackelford, Shands, Tyler
and 'Wallace. Messrs, Claytor and Sbanda
were not present yesterday, but are re?
garded as favoring tho bill. Indeed, Mr.
Shands is known to favor It. Messrs.
Hutcheson, Herman. Donoboe, Walkor
und Whltejicart were absent yesterday,
and while It cannot bo stated authori?
tatively how they stand, It 1s said that
at least mie, If not two or moro, favor
tho bill. Messrs Keozell and Revercomb are
said to be opposoil to tho measure un?
alterably. Mr. Wallace Is regarded as
ono who will voto for the bill on Its
passage. Mr. Cngblll Is not recorded. In
any event, the bill will certainly se?
curo tho necessary twenty-one volea, and
will have several to spare. It is Im?
probable that there will be any further
debute on the measure.
FIREMEN'S BELIEF BILL DEAD,
Mr. Lvlo, of Koiinoka. sought to have
tho House bill knjwn as tho Blond fire?

that a lobby no less powerful is not

pressed the Jamestown measure to suc?

argued that If the bill was pressed
through there was no reason why police?
men, school teachers, county officers
and others should not bo pensioned.
Mr. Lyio defended the bill and advo?
cated tho motion to recommit, but tho
motion was lost overwhelmingly. This
action Is regarded a_ tho end of that

Speculation as to SomeThlngs
in Event of Judge Camp?
In the event of the adoption by the
Senate of tho House resolutions remov?
ing Judge C. J. Campbell, of Arahorst,
from office, thoro la a good deal of spec?
ulation as to several matters relating to
the Judgeshlp and politics in that county.
A gentleman hero tho other day, who Is
ftunillar with the situation in Amhorst,
says that thero Is a -wide-spread feeling
both among tho bar nnd tho pcopl? in
favor of the, designation of Judge J. M.
White, of AJbomarlo, to hold tho court
of Amtierst for tho remainder of Judgo
Campbell's term, should tho latter be ,
removed from olllce. Ho pointed out that
Judgo White would\ go on tho Amhorst
bench as circuit Judgo February 1st next,
and that being far removed from any
factional prejudlco on either side, would
be an admirable selection.
Ho hardly thought this course would
be pursued. Inasmuch as the Legisla?
ture would bo In session when final ac-*"1
tion was liad on the Campbell matter,
though he thought the suggested ar?
rangement would bo a fitting Introduction
of tho new circuit Judgo to tho bar and
In discussing tho proposed fight for tho
Mouse this fall, the gentleman said the
anti-Campbell people wero nover ln> bet?
ter fighting shape, and that when the
time camo to select a candidato for the
primary battle, soma one would bo put
forward upon whom tho froces of oppo?
sition to Judgo Campbell would be ab?
Ho had heard tho names of Dr. Don
Scott, of Elon, and Supervisor Bornard
B. Campbell mentioned, but neither of
them were In any senso seeking to enter
the race. From all that can bo learned
some lively times aro expected in Am
lierst this fall in any event.
