THE FITZHUGH FAMILY.
PRO PATRIA SEMPER.
The simple namo of Hugh, or Hero, ns
It was spelt during tho Norman period,
Is to be traced to tho early Anglo-Saxon
reign of Ethelred II., and Is surrounded
with holy associations. There was a. "St.
Hugh," Ahbott of Chuny, ln 1109: also
a "St. Hugh," Bishop of C?rcnohle,1132;
a "St. Hugh," Bishop ot Lincoln, 1200,
and above all, the celebrated Infant mar?
tyr, "St. Hugh," ot Lincoln, said to have
bren crucified by the Jews? In 1250.
Tills event seems to have given the
name great popularity among all classes,
ns It Is found In English and French rec?
ords more frequently nfter that time, and
especially during ihe Reformation.
The Norman patronymic "Fitz," or tho
modern French "Ills" (soni, was early ap?
plied to most surnames, as "Fltz-l'ntrlck"
(ton of Patrick), and many other com?
binations, always being two words, hut
sometimes adding a Christian namo, such
ns "Edward lo-Flta-Slmon." The con?
traction of the nnme. however. In its pres?
ent form of "Fltzhugh" did not ohtatn
until brought to this country.
The Fits-Hughs of England wero an
clently seated In (ho counties of York
and Oxford, timo of Edward III. One of
tho IValrlQ of this noted houso, Colonel
William Fits Hugh, waa sent to Virginia
about 1700, where he colonized ? largo
part of King George county, taking up
large grant's' of land nnd locating his
homo at a place called "Bedford." Ho
seems to hnvo been ah astute lawyer
and a mnn of large Influence throughout
tho colony. Ills son William, born 1720,
became most activo and prominent during
thn Hcvolutlonnry struggle, Ho repre?
sented tho county of ICIng GeorlTo In Hie
first convention at Wllllarnsburg. 177(1, nnd
wns also a delegate to the early Conti?
nental Congresses of 1779 lo iTSO.
He was also quite active In the church
conventions, hit' name appearing as a
delegato from Stafford county In 17W-SG.
He died In 1S09, leaving a -large family.
One of his sons, Wllllnm Henry FltzlUlgW,
born 17P2, became equally as distinguished,
especially as a philanthropist and author;
he took an active part In tho American
.Colonisation Society, being made Its vice
president, nnd In 1S2R he published mnny
essays ln furtherance of Its cause under |
tho nom-de-plunie "OpllmuV In the old
Blchmond Enquirer. ?
He, too, like his fnlhor, was an nctlve
worker in the church. He died in Alary- |
land, 1S30. Another sod, Nicholas Flta
hugh, also became distinguished ns
lawyer, and was appointed In ISO!" Judge
of the I'nlted States Court in tho Dis?
trict of Columbia.
His son, Edward Henry Fltshugh, born
In 1S16, was another prominent lawyer.
During the Confederato War he nettled
In Blchmond, taking nn nctlve part ln
...the army until the surrender at Appo?
ni atto.*:, though he was quite advanced
in age. Another talented member of the
Fltshugh family was George Fltshugh, of
Frtnce William county, who way quite
prominent as an nuthor, his work, "Can?
nibals All. or Slaves Without. Alasters,"
became most popular Just previous to
The Fitshughs were early connected by I
marriage with many of the most prom?
inent families of lower Virginia?the Car?
ters, of "King Carter" fame; tho Ham?
sons, of Lower Brandon, on James Hiver;

(Special to Tlio Tlmcs-Dlspatoh.)
COMORN, VA.. Aug. 29.?All through
Juno, July and tho first half of August,
whllo tho enthusiastic local politicians
were engaged In slateinaklng for tho full
campaign and election, It looked as If
tho Democratic nomination for tho House
of Delegates. In Iho ilislrlet composed of
King George and Stafford would go heg
King. A newspaper representative could
hardly pilot his nose outside of his yard
gate without rubbing against candidates
galore for tho various county offices to
ho filled by tho November election, hut It
was dlfllctilt to fimi a man who manifest?
ed tho leant "hankering" after the hith?

The situation has undergone a marked
chango in the past weok or ton days,
however, and now cnndldates, or "aspi?

on every hand, among whom are some
good men, who have'not formally an?
nounced their candidacy.
It ls pretty generally understood that
Mr. Jamosr E. Rogers, of this county, ls
In the Held to stay. But whether he will
submit his claims to a nominating con?
vention or a primary, or whothor he will
run' na an Independent Democrat Is not
known to tho public. A report has boon
in circulation for some days past that ?Mr.
Thomas L. Hunter, of King Georgo Court
house, ls also a candidate, but ho has
not as yet authorized any statement to
thnt effect, mo far as can he learned.
Mr.'. R. M. Jones, a well known Demo?
crat of Stafford, has declared himself a
candidate for the nomination, and It Is
said that ho has a good following in som?
sections of his county.
TI\o discussion of tho merits and avail?
ability of the stirerai candidates already
named hasjarought out a suggestion that
T. WelldoiT Berrey. a promlnont Stafford
lawyer, has some strong friends -who will
insist upon his namo going before tho
convention or primary, provided ho will
consent to It. It Is understood that Mr;
Berrey is a. candidato for tho ofllco of
Commonwealth's attorney In Stafford, nnd
.It Is not known here whether or" not ho
even aspires to tho nomination for tha
House of Delegates.
Many Democrats hero recall the fnct
that a fow years afro, when the Demo?
cratic nominee withdrew from the leg?
islativo contest Just before the election,
young Berrey yielded to porsuatlons, ac?
cepted tho nomination, entered tho race
at the eleventh hour, made a vigorous
fight and was elected to tho House by a

It Is almost a foregone conclusion that
M. K. Lowery, of Stafford, will bo tho
Republican candidate for the House again
this year, and the Democrats cannot bo

It Is a mistake to contend that tho
elimination of the negro vote, by dis?
franchising so many of them, will mako
Mr. Lov.-ery's defeat an easy Job this
timo. The fallacy of such a contention
will bo all too plain after the election, If
the Democrats continue to "nsure" so
conildentlv on it. Tho Republicans of
the two counties (Stafford- and King

It Is already apparent that that harmony
will "count" In this campaign.

sixth Senatorial District, Indicate that
C. Harding Walker will bo nominated
by tho Democrats to succeed himself in
the Virginia State Senate. It looks at
present" as ?G Mr. Walker will not have
opposition, although It may ho possible
that at least one other gontlemnn aspires
to the honor which tho peoplo have de?
lighted to confer upon Senator Walker.
Captain John M. Lyell, the present

The County Committee Likely to Call a

Bay Was Very Satisfactory.
(Special to Tho Timcs-Dfspatch.)
MEHERRIN, VA., August 20.?Muhe
dissatisfaction exists among farmers of
this section on account of tho low prlcoa
for the new crop of tobacco.
Many tobacco raisers several weeks ago
had prepared to save their entire crop of
priming and write tho warehousemen tn
Danville and other murkcts to this effect,
hut they wero advised by the tobacco
men that the *rlces -weror too low to justi?
fy tho trouble.
As a result the greater part of tho crop
has not* been saved.
Heretofore the avorage farmor has
realized enough from primings to more
than pay for tho fertilizer used.
Many of tho peoplo engaged In this In?
dustry say thoy will discontinue this
crop as. thoy cannot afford to employ
labor ot tho present prices and raise
tobacco for from three to six cents per
nundrod. Whllo others say they are com:
polled to continuo It, as thoro Is no crop
that tho farmer can mako that will'take
the placo of tobacco. Tho prospect for
this crop through "here Is Very promising,
.-md soveral good cures has been mado
land tho farmers who have examined tho
leaves that are cured, say that thoy havo
a good, fat tobacco, and with the samo
prices that were received about this
timo last year, they would have some
surplus? money to mako tho next crop
The district committee hua been called
together to devise somo plan for the
Situationen this district, and tho county
committee, through Its secretary, Mr,
Georgo T. Allen, has l'ssuod a call for a
meeting, to ho held; at Lunenburg Court?
house on 'the 14th day of September (court
day). A primary will likely be ordered
nt this meeting. While all tho candidates
so far aro Doniocrats, It Is thought ad
vlnaulo tha,', a prlmnry should he held In
order to nettle tho situation. -
This question was heforo tho commlt-tea
Hume weeks ago, but was carried over
for a whllo to eeo If the state of affaira
demanded It, Tho district cormml'tteo
decided to hold a primary on Septem?
ber 12th. The wholo county seems flooded
