WHAT THEY THINK
Worth The Money.
The Uocklngham takes a final review
? of the ?Campbell case. In which It says:
Whatever may bo the result of Judge
Campbell's threat to take the case to
the courts, the adverse action of tbe peo?
ple's representatives In both branches of
tlio Conerai Assembly vindicates the dig?
nity of the bench and Is final and sufu
rient notice that the ofllce of Judgo shall
not be prostituted to personal or factional
After all, the integrity of the State
Judiciary, quite as much as Clarence
Campbell, was on trial in this legislation
Investigation and It comes out unscathed.
Ko court decision hereafter based on
technical considerations, even though fa?
vorable to Judgo Campbell, can break
tho force of the legislativo verdict, .and
ior that reason the result thus far Is
wortb to Virginia every dollar of the
largo bill of costs that was piled up be?
fore the final roll-call was reached.
Opening Old Wounds.
The Wythevllle Dispatch takes this
ylew of the Cleveland agitation:
We admire and have always admired
?Mr. Cleveland's Intellect, his Integrity
nnd his stamina, and have always de?
plored his dangerous and exasperating
stubbornness. Unquestionably one of
tbo ablest men of our land, ho would
snake a President of whom our country
could bo proud. If ho Is nominated we
pEVlll gladly vote for him.
Hut wo sincerely hope that Mr. Cleve?
land will discourage his friends, and will
positively declino to bo a candidate. No
cne should renllze better than bo that
Ji'p is not tbe min to unify tbo party,
nnd for his party's sake as well.as bis
own bo sliould withdraw; It Ih true
that tbo principle of no third term does
not apply to Mr, Cleveland, since the
jiolnt Is against continuance In ofllce, not
ngalnst intermittent terms. Hut the p-irty
cannot afford to tear open old'wounds by
tbe nomination of either Mr, Cleveland
or Mr. Hryan.
Great Things For Newport Newa,
Tbo Newport News Press has this roscy
View of tilings:
It is to be hoped that the deal which
has been consummated In connection
with tho controlling Interest of the Old
Dominion Land Company means that
Newport News is tu liocorno a terminili
jiolnt for tlio great Oould system of rail?
roads. Such a result would be so pro?
ductive of benefits to this section that
ono can hardly realizo that something
nlong this line has not been attempted
Jioretofore. So far as the Oould Interests
are concerned It ?loos not require a proph?
et to see that the adoption of this city
ns a deep-water terminal would be ono of
tbo wisest and most profitable transac?
tions ever engaged lu by u mumlier of
nil exceedingly shrewd and businesslike
Hampton Heads Is the Ideal gateway
for tho foreign commerce of the Middle
West. The experience of the Chesapeake
und Ohio Railroad along this line Is posi?
tivo proof of this assertion, Then, too,
It Is ? well known fact that tho coal[
fields of Virginia and West Virginia aro
Just beginning to bo developed; New?
port News Is the naturili shipping point
for all of this traffic., nnd we have tip
doubt that tbe Oould Interests Intend to
have a hand In tailing care of this profi?
? Great Nuisance,
Both town and country folk? win en.
dorse this from tho Norfolk Landmark:
It may have been a very liberal oon?
?tructlon of his prerogative In the mat
t*t when tlio colico justlco of Richmond
announced that he would acquit every
man arrested In that city for knocking
down merchants who go out on the side?
walk and pull people Into their store? In
an effort to promote trade?yet there are
many people In the state, doubtless, who
wilt feel mightily like clapping their
hands In applause of "Justice John" for
A Great Girl.
The Russell County News furnishes
this most Interesting society item:
Miss Caille Gilbert has broken the rec?
ord at this place. Sho entertained three
sweethearts Sunday and sent them with
sweet smiles and happy hearts rejoicing
on their way.
Not Explicit Enough.
The 'Petersburg index-Appeal says:
Mr. Bryan's Interview concerning tbe
chances of Mr. Cleveland to secure the
Democratic nomination would have been
far more satisfactory If he had been a
little more explicit and told the country
whether, as a matter of party regularity
and duty, be would support Mr. Cleveland
In the event of his nomination by the
Democratic Convention next year.
Suitable Davis Memorial.
Discussing tbo stylo of Davis memorial
to bo erected In Illchmnnd, tho Newport
News Times-Herald offers this sugges?
It seoms to us thnt tbo best possible
memorial to Mr, Davis would bo to erect
? good substiintl.il "Davis Memorial
Hall" at the Confederate Soldiers' liorna
nt Richmond and ondi-w it with a capaci?
ty to caro for ? goodly number of needy
Confederato from tho Southorn Stntes, al?
lowing each state Its pro rata according
to Its contributions, and tho grand camp
of each state could fill the vacancies ns
they occur In the representation from
their various states.
Thus would the money bo mndo to servo
to mako life morn tolerable for the In?
digent soldiers, nnd at the sanie time the
memorial to Mr. Davis would bo com?
When tho last Confederate soldier shall
have answered tho groat final roll-call
tboro will still lie uso for tbe memorial
for the poor wo have always with us, and
the Davis Memorial Hall may go down
through tho centuries a boon to mankind
rather than a simple marble shaft com?
memorating the virtues of ono man, but
bringing no blessing to the generations
High License The Thing.
The IProderlel'Rhiirg Preo Lance says:
A contest was mado in primary nt
Charlottesvllle 'Friday hew-on the high
and low license parties, In which the hit?
ler wore defeated. Whllo five of the
old Coiincllinen are retired those who
succeed them will not change tbe atti?
tude of tbo Council In reference to liquor
license. It appears that the opinion Is rap?
idly gaining ground that high licenso In
tho cities Is about (lie best way to deal
with tbo liquor question,
It Won't .Scare. .
The Chirlottesvllle Prosrer..-. g?ts rieht
up In meeting and speaks out as follows:
The people of tbo South received with
hearty approval atid applause Kdttor Me
Kelwiiy's address on the negro question,
but that gentleman should not for. this
reason, believe for a moment tb.it they
will perm'i him to ninno tholr presiden?
tial candidates for them by telling tbfm
they will lie Crmnpackered, If they do not
accept his choice.
Something Now, ?
This rather startling, piece o? news
comes from the editorial column of the
The development of a spirit of caste in
such patriotic societies as the Daughters
of the American Revolution, Colonial
Dames and Daughters of the Confed?
eracy, has been quite noticeable in recent
years, and to such an extent that mem?
bership In one or more ot these associa?
tions has come to be regarded as a pre?
requisite to admittance Into what is
popularly known as "society." This is
of course nn un-American tendency and
It is wholly at variance with the Demo?
cratic spirit which animated the fore?
fathers of those who are now most strict?

Here Is a gloomy view from tho Alex?
President Roosevelt made several
speeches In California yesterday. At
Waterville he predicted that the United

tinent and spreading Its tentacles from
the Atlantic to the Pacific, but now sighs

It is a very good and praiseworthy sen?

Spaniards several hundreds of years ago,
Is almost the only ono of the kind loft In
