(Siedili to Tin? Tlm?*-niv>etcli.)
MEHERRIN. VA.. Nov. 11.?The politi
cal situation In Lunonburg remains al?
most as unsettled to-day as It was the
dfty previous to election.
Judge George C. Orgeln will contest
two of ? he largest voting precincts In
the county, wllh good chances of throw?
ing them entirely out. These precinct?
are Lochleven and Rehoboth, and It Is
claimed thnt tho Irregularities were
caused by tho Judges In tho former fail?
ing to sea) or wrap either the ballots or
poll books, which were carried to the
courthouse and delivered to anolher in?
stead of the clerlt. This precinct gave
lit. W. E. Neblett a majority, and the
throwing out of this one alone would
mange matters considerably.
CHANGE OF OFFICERS.
W. E. Neblett, who defeated Judge
George C. Orgaln by twenty votes, would
lose-the office of attorney for the Com?
monwealth, and Mr. George T. Bridge
forth would lose the office of representa?
tive, and Mr. George T. Allen -would bo
i-eated, and Mr. O. L. Hardy, commis?
sioner In District No. 1, who won over
Mr. W. Y. Fowlkes by one vote, would
also surrender his office to his opponent.
.At Rehoboth one of the registrars served
as judge of election, and an effort will
he made to have this counted out also.
Both of these precincts gave Mr. Neblett
a majority, aa also Mr. Hardy.
It is quite evident that the fight will
?be a warm one, and a good display of
legal talent will be employed on both
A petition has already been gotten up
und signed for this purpose, nnd the peo?

velopments. The friends of Judge Orgaln

TOBACCO GROWERS MEET.
The tobacco growers of Lunenburg
county met at" the courthouse yesterday,
and elected the following representatives
tc attend the meeting of the organlzaUon,
?which will be held In Danville, Va., on
the 17th day of this month for the pur?
pose of devising some means to raise the
prices of tobacco: W. H. Hawthorne, S.
K. Love. R. A. Blackwell J. S. Saunders,
\V. C. Love, J. O. Blackwell, J. T. Wjd
dell, T. B. Hardy, J. C. Hart and E. P.
It Is the r^.-ose of these people to
fight tho tobacco trust, and there are
s?-vera! of them who favor the manufac?
ture of their own crop ?y organizing a
arge stock company among tne farmers ?
?>[ Virginia and North Carolina and build
arge factories for this purpose.
All of thes men are large growers, and |
hey claim that it is impossible for them
to raise tobacco at the present prices.
Another plan, which meets w,_ much
favor among them. Is to have honucu
warehouses to whom they can ship their
crop to be held until tho prices ad?
vance, and let these warehouses aclvanco
them such amount of money ?is they are
compelled to uso on the tobacco shipped
Large crops of this produce Is raleed
in this county, particularly bright, and
there Is no doubt that every farmer Is
entirely aroused and will make strenu?
ous efforts to accomplish much along
Scarcely any of this year's crop has
teen offered for sale, and this state
snakes money matters very close in this
county as this is the only moneyed crop
raleed. ??. " >.
