stable nn. magl.tr.iies there are eov
eial who are severely attackert. by thelr
opponents, onfl who are returning th.
charge wlth eq_i.il o-iverlty. One of
the constables, or candidates for that
offlce, has been ma<Je tha butt of the most
serious and sen.atlonal charge of all,
whlch was mado In an open meetlng,
..Wlth a slngle exceptlon here and there,
al) the ofllces, bler and little, aro beliitf
hotly contestod, ABplmnt.) for the offtoe
of constable and maglstrate are out In
great number. Both commlssloners of
tho revenue are opposed and both aro
maklng stlff flghts. Thoro is a battle
roynl for Commonwealth's attorney, and
3omo hot sp'eeches are belng made. Sher?
lff Solomon has an opponent, but It Is
generally belloved that he will bo re
eloctod by a largo majority.
Among tho chlef pecullarlti'es of the
campaign ls the fact that two men are
runnlng for "re-electlon" for the samo
oflice. Clrcult Clerk Broaddus hold3 that
the old county clerkshlp has been abol
lshed and that he ls slmply standlng
for re-electlon. County Clerk Waddlll
holds that tho old clrcuJt clerkshlp has
beon abollshed and that he i's slmply
stantMng for re-electlon. Ho charges Mr.
BroaddU3 wlth trylng to befog the issue
'and wlth unfairne3S. Recently he has
procured and read at tho meetlngs the
lettor wrltten by Mr. Broaddus to the
County Commlttee announcing hls can
dldacv. In thls letter Mr. Broaddus says
he Is'a candldate for the offlee of county
Around tbe treasurership also there
rages a battle. Mr. Brauer charges Mr.
Todd wlth golng mto hls house to use
the telephone and then reportlng to the
public what ho saw there?a thlng Mr.
Brauer declares no gentloman would do.
Mr. Todd says he was Invlted to use the
'phone by a member of Mr. Brauor's
famlly. and that he only reported that Mr.
Brauer had a negro butler, and that he
did thls only because Mr. Brauer was
trylng to plead poverty and get elected
on that ground. Mr. Brauer says he
never pleaded the poverty act, and that
he never had a butler.
Thus lt goes on ad lnflnitum. The Tay?
lor embezzlement haB be* . hauled to the
front agaln and mado the basls of an
attack on the present treasurer. Mr.
Todd also accuses Mr. Brauer of belng no
gentleman ln connectlon wrth hls ac
tions at a recent polltlcal meeting.
Through it all Mr. Hechler, the thlrd can?
dldate, stnnds calm and serone. All he
says ls that his frlend, Brauer, has been
treasurer long enough; that he (Hechler)
ought to be given a show now, and that
later on. after he gets out, hls frlend
Todd could got in. lf tho. Pe?Plat.s^?
The flght for membershlp In the House
o' Delegates is stlll as hot as ever. There
are slx candldates. and all of them are
maklng strong efforts to wln.
The latest development in thla flght ls
tho charge of Mr. Rosenegk that Mr.
Gardner was the author of a news artlcle
in another paper declaring that the law
and order people and the church people
were favoring him (Gardner). Mr. Gard?
ner admlts that he told the reporter the
thlngs, and says he is not sorry they
were prlnted, because they are all true.
He comes stralght back at Mr. Rosenegk
bv declaring that the president of the
brewery is the candldate of the whiskey
rr.en, and that the church people are, in
fact standlng behlnd him (Gardner).
-Jeanwhlle Mr. James R. Russell strolls
ln with a'hot attack on ' tho plumed
knight of Brookland" (Gardner), and tho
statement that he (Russell) ls the one
man for tho House from Henrlco.
Mcetings This Week
It would be posslble to write yards
more of what the candldates are saylng
about one another, and ln the days lm*
modtately at hand lt is poseible that the
attacks will grow flercer and flercer. Sev?
eral other meetlngs will bo held, and lt
is probable that the balloon will get in
tho game agaln.
A good meetlng was held last nlght at
Ar.d-rson's store. The attendance was
large and much enthuslnsm was manl
fested. A number of meetlngs have been
arranged for tho future. Among those
