(But a bare four days mtervene be?
tween tlie ' present and the long-awaited,
long-dlncuimed Henrico primary that la to
close one of.tlie hottest campaigns ln tbe
history of the oouruty. Thursday morn?
ing, bright and early, the balloting -mil
begin, and by nightfaJl of the same,day
tlie fruits of the toilsome days and weeks
spent by aspiring and perspiring candi?,
dates, who have (tramped the county from
end to end ln ouest of votee, will be regis?
tered once and for all.
To the most ?agacions and foresighted
of the political roasoners and prophets
lt is well nigh a hopeless task ito survey
tho field aa lt presenta ltsolf at this time
and give, with-any? degree of accuracy
and reasonableness, a foreshadowing of
how It? will appear next Friday morning.
To listen to tho candidates themselvpa
evorybody in tlie field will be elected,
and there will be some half dozen mem?
bers of the House, two or three clerks,
two sheriffs, throe treasurers, the same
number ot Commonwealth's attorneys,
and a porfeot swarm of magistrates and
oonstablcs. . This manifestly la nothing
more than that ebullition of tho hopeful
spirit \vhlch never entirely deserts any
man, howevor gloomy tho prospect may
appear. A few persons here and there
havo picked out, regardless of their per-,
sonai predilections, tho men they think,
from tho faots boforo them, will win. But
?there wore others who'would not see a a
thoy did. Hardly two men can be found
who would select the'same men, and there
Is thus no way of telling how the tide
will turn. No attompt Is made here at a
forecast, other than what each candidate
says for hlmsolf.
Vote to be Polled.
The vote polled In tho primary will
probably be very large ln comparison
with the total registration. Nearly every
oflico. Is hotly contester!, and the Interest
among ?the people is very groat. Every
vote will tell, and nearly every voter In
tho county will go to the polls. X.
The now registration will cut a big
figuro in the fight, and ln ithe number ot
votes polled. Perhaps' 800 new names
will be atJded beforo Thursday, and so
tightly aro tho lines drawn ?that these 800
miiy turn the tables in several of the'
contests. Candidates havo been strug?
gling hard to keep up with the Influx
nnd havo boen at the polls during the
botter portion of eaoh day while the
registration was going on. Many of them
havo gotten ln some of their hardest:
licks there, and will continue to do so.
The majority o? the precincts have fin?
ished the work and have taken in a
large number of new voters, notably
Hardln's Shop, Howard'? Grove and some
others. Yesterday Carter's, In Varlnaj
Barton Heights, in Brookland, and on?
preclnat registered. To-morrow Whit
lock's, ln Varlna; Chestnut Hill, In Brook
land, and another precinct In Tuckahoe
will open their books. On Wodnesday,
the day boforo the primary, the last dis?
trict In Tuckahoe will be registered.
Betwoen now and the primary the can?
eliditi oh will be busy with these new regis?
trations and otherwise putting the finish?
ing touches to the canvass. Two or three
more political rallies will' be held. There
will bo a big ono Tuesday night at Har?
dln's Shop, one of the largest precincts
In tlio county. Vague rumors are floating
abroad of some interesting and Impor?
tant developments before the day of th?
primary, but It Is Impossible now to as?
certain if these rumors have any founda?
tion in tact or If they are merely th?
usual campaign stutter.
The campaign ?ticket tl?a year Is one ot
the lnrgest and fullost In many year?.
Nearly all of the old officers are out fo?
i-e-eleetlon, and nearly all ara opposed.
Perhaps thn only mon who have no oppo?
sition are Constable Cyclone Samuel, of
Varlna, and Supervisor Browning, ot
Tuckahoe. Three of the ofllcers have
either retired or are running for som?
other position. For these ?three office?
new men will havo to be eleoted. In th?
other'the old men may bo re-elected or they
may not. hut hero thoro will have to be
now ones. The throe offices are Common?
wealth's attorney, supervisor from Brook
liinil and supervisor from Falrfleld.
The ticket, with the names that will
appear on it Thursday, Is as follow?!
