COURTESTES EXCTLANGED IN
Several weeks ago a Norfolk policeman
Investigated the tangling qualities of the
? whiskey sold In Portsmouth. Ho found
the right sort of liquor. He got tangled
a*? to his tongue and loosened as to his
legs. His case was investigated, and
he was allowed to rest In the sanitary
department. This morning the docket of
tho Police Court here contains the name
of J. W. Abbott, who is said to be a
member of the police force of Ports?
mouth. The legend opposite his namo is
"drunk." The police Ray that "very"

the character of the hilarious condition
he was In. He returned the courtesy ot
the Norfolk Investigator and demon?
strated, by his Investigations, that Nor?
folk liquor will elevate a man's spirits
to a greater degree than Portsmoui*i
liquor will. He was fined $1 and costs,
and Justice Taylor refused to consider
an application for the dismissal of tho

PRICHUOF POTATOES HIGH.
The excitement over the potato crop
Is Increasing aa tho prices go higher. $3.o0
Is what thoy are quoted at In Capo
Charles. This Is the best price ever
known there. Cape Charles as a market
has been known only a few.years. Ever
Blnce the railroad reached that point
in 1884 it has, of course, been tho chief
shipping point for the county, but it
?was only about five years ago that the
buyers were attracted there. Now a largo
number come each season. Sometimes
the buying becomes so active that the
wbarf Is an exchange. Thousands of
barrels change hands each day during
the busy season. All the truckers living
on the water fronts on bay and sea?
side send echooners to Cape Charles with
truck to bo transferred to the cars at
that point or sell to the speculator.

So Asserted by the Supreme
Court of Virginia?Other
(Speelnl to Tho nmes-Dlnpateh.)
WTTHEVILLEi VA., Juno 18.?To-day
tho Supreme Court of Appeals handed
down its week's decisions. In which It af?
firms tho Judgment of the Circuit Court
of Augusta county In refusing to feront
a now trial to the appellant, Taylor.
Tho court thus asserts the validity of
the State's now Constitution.
'i.ie opinion was by Judgo Harrison.
Taylor was convicted and sentenced to
ono year In the penltontlary by tho Judge
of Augusta County Court, without the
Intervention of a Jury upon his plea of
guilty. Tho court In affirming tlio action of
tho Circuit Court In refusing a writ of
error, holds that tho present Constitution,
hairing been accepted and acknowledged
by tho Executive, by tho Legislature,
by the courts and officers throughout the
State, by taking tho oath to support It,
and by Its recognition by Joint action of
the Legislature on July IB, 1902, and by
tho people In their primary capacity by
peacefully accepting and noquiefclng In
It. by registering voters uncer It, L'y voting
under its provisions nt a general election
for their representatives In the Congress
of the United States, and being as a
matter ot fact In force throughout the
State, and there being no government In
existence under the Constitution of 1SG9
opposing and denying its validity, they
have no difficulty In holding the new
Constitution tho only rightful, valid and
existing Constitution of this State, and
to that all the ctlzens of Virginia owe
their obedience and lawful obedience. The
opinion further stateH. however, that
the court does not wish to bo understood
as acquiescing In the contention of the
prisoner that the convention of 1901-02
was without power to promulgate the
Constitution It ordained, first, because the
library at hand Is not sufficient to proper?
ly investigate and consider the question,
and, second, becauso If It were conceded
that the convention was without power
to promulgate the Constitution, It would
not niter the result In this case, Inasmuch
ns the Constitution of 1902 has been the
fundamental law, as already shown, by
being acknowledged and accepted by the
government and people of tho State.
