that fjharles W. Rex Is to be tho locnl

of the Leath circuit. Mr. Rex Is Im?
mensely popular here, and he showed
such an aptitude for management lent

confided all hte interests to his care.
Mr. Leath will exercise general super?
vision over all his theatres and will travel
a good deal from town to town where
his interests lie. There will be few

NOT ON TICKET
(Special to The Tlmes-Dlspntch.)
WINCHESTER, VA.. August 1.?The
opponents of Senator L. Lupton declare
that ho Is now certainly out of ithe race
for the State Senate, and that Judge F.
S. Tavcnner, ot Woodstock, has a cleun
field, although Senator Lupton has not
said he will not run, but has refused ito
enter the primaries, because ot their
not being ln accordance with the Stato
Committee's rule of the viva voce plan.
His name wns not plncedi on the ticket
made up ito-day by the Democratic elec?
There are many candidates for county
offices, and no less than six Republicans
had their names placed on the ticket to
be voted ln the Democratic primaries.
This is said to be without preccdei-uT.
Senator Lupton's friends claim that a
deal has been mado with Shenandoah
county Republicans to defeat him, and
that two ballot boxes are to be used
there unless he gives up ?the fight.
