Commltteo tn declaring for the law nnd

forcement of It. does no little to make the
fight sharp nnd clearly defined, .it puts
evory man upon an equal footing.
Tho contest for a scat In tho House of
? Delegates Is decidedly hot, and It grows
more so every day. Six condl?ates are In
the field, and all six nro working hard
for the nomination. Houso to house can?
vasses are being mado by somo of thorn.
nnd every meeting seos two or three of
them there. One of tho most Interesting
phases of this fight is the battle-royal on
between Mr. Gardner, the Incumbent, nn
advocate of tho Mann untl-llquor law, nnd
Mr., Roscnegk, tho president of tho
Rosenegk Brewing Company. Mr. Rose
negk Is n-cry popular ln a number of sec?
tions tn tho county, and it Is generally
conceded that ho will mako a good run.
It may bo said that ho represent-? the li?
cuor forces and the antl-?a?? bill cle?
ment. Mr. Gardner is very stnmg through?;
out the county and is confident of being
reseated. His friends ore as confident
as he, and many political prophets, not
particularly friendly to him, declaro thnt
he will win. He represents tlic niitl-llivior
and Mann bill forces. Both are milking
a hard fight for tho oiTlco they covet.
Judge Wlckham Is ono of the strongest
men In the State. His friends aro hope?
ful tor him, nnd declare that he will

The Clerkship Fight.
It is a battle royal between Broaddus
and Waddlll for tlio county clerkship.
Both aro standing for "ro-eloctlon," each
declaring lhat the other's ofllco ha3 boon
Mr. Broaddus appears confident of suc?
cess. Ho hns mndo a hard fight, and
spends his nights in town In order to at?
tend many of tho meetings. Mr, Broad?
dus clnlms that tho County Court clerk?
ship hns been ..abolished, along with the
Cctinly Coiifr.sytta'm. The new Consti?
tution proVlde's for a county clerk, who
shall bo clerk of the Circuit Court. This
j?cw' ofllce, Mr. Broaddus iWclaros, Is
Identical with his present one, and that
hence ho is simply standing for re-elec?
tion. Mr. Waddlll, he says, has no of?
fice to run for, and Is trying to oust
A view of the matter just tho opposite
Is taken by Mr. "Waddlll, who was ?? mem?
ber of the Constitutional Convention, and
who Introduced tho very measure abol?
ishing county courts. Ho declares thnt
the clerkship, however, was not abolished
"It was retained, nnd tho circuit clerkship
was merged into it. Heneo ho holds thnt
Mr. Broaddus It1 without ofllco. Mr. Wad?
dlll shows that the new Constitution calls
for "our, county clerli, who shall bo the
clerk of tho Circuit Court." Furthermore,
he argues that thn circuit clerkship Is
even now a mere incidental thing. it is
only operating In counties having ? pop?
ulation of over 15,000, where the county
clerk could noi flo all tho work, nnd where
the circuit clerkship was necessarily
formed. There are about fourteen of

clerkship has been abolished nnd tho cir?
cuit clerkship retained, In this cusp ??,??

be no clerk? In the others at all. Finally
Mr, Waddlll produces nii.1 rende at lb?

mitlee announcing his candidacy for th?
office, of ?'county clerk."

something, the remembrance of whloh,
