JOIT DEBATES
Some Interesting References to
? Political Discussion? in
Other Years.
DANIEL-CAMERON bEBATES
Recollect ions M Political Men As
to Terms?A Debate
Here.
The statement of Governor Montague
thin the tonni offered htm in the joint
Helm to ut Kins; George itind accepted un
dor protest by him wt're manifestly con?
trary 'to the almost universal precedent
In joint dtseussfqus in this Stale, gave
rlro to considerable discussion yesterday,
and as was to be expected, there was
tvltlc difference of view?.
Kx-State Senator Henry A. Atkinson
stated that ho was familiar with the de?
tails leading up to ? joint debate years
ngo between Gllbort C, Walker, then a
candidate for the congressional nomina?
tion, and .1, 11. Guy, who contested for
Uint holier with him. lie stated that he
hnd heun called In by ex-Govbrhqr
?\ nJkor as one of his advisers, Mr. Guy
luring challenged him to a joint discus?
sion It liad been derided at that rime
that the party challenging, being in the
altitude ? of one accusing or attacking,
should open, and that the challenged
party should reply in the same time;
that the challenger should then have a
rejoinder, and tho challenged party the
dotici In the same time given for the
rejoinder. This plan had beeoTnc since,
that accepted rule governing joint de?
ttes In Virginia.
Congressman II. D. Flood, who bar- hnd'
? number of joint debates In his political
career, stated that it was his rp?ollec-.
tl'on of the Daniel-Cameron debates of
llSl that one speaker opened in an
iiour. the other ?eplletl In an hour; tho
firsl rejoinder in half an ^our, and the
; other closed In the same time. The then
candidates for Governor agreed t? a
series of joint debates, with the further
a?r'-rmcnt that one was to have the
opening and rejoinder in one debate, and
la the next the orber was to have It,
thus neutralizing any advantage to cith?
er appertaining to tho close of the dis?
cussion. He said that this plan was
adhered to. as ho recalled it.
Montague-Swanson.
Jlr. Flood further stated that In the
fiwanson-Montague'debate at Roydton in
IMI, Mr.? Montague, as the challenged
party, had named as the terms the e:
Mr. ' Montague to open to an hour's
Fpeech; Mr. Swansea to lep'.y in an
hour and twenty minute.? and Mr. Mon?
tague to close in a speech of twenty
minutes. Mr. Swanson, having chal?
lenged Mr. Montague. ? accepted these
terms, and rhe debate was so conducted.
The same terms governed the Motita
jrui-Hoge debate at ChrjsUanshurj? In
19?L At King Georg? on Thursday Gov?
ernor Montague challenged and suggest?
ed that one open In an hour, the other
to respond in an hour and a half, and
the matt who qp?neja to clos- the debate
In .t twenty minutes' speech, offering
Senator Marxin his chulee of opining and |
c'osi rig or of the long speech between the
tv.o. Senator Martin bc:ng the par.y
challenged, and entitled t? name t e
terms, subject to his opponent's acqui?
escence, cent an alternative proposition,
which the Governor accepted, though
stating that the terms placed him a.t a
disadvantage.
Air. Flood slated that lio himself had
consented to a scries of joint debates with
Mr. Revefcomb, his Republican contestant
for Congress, lnst year on practically the
terms proposed by Governor Montague
Thursday, save that the two. contestants
were to alternate in the opening and
closing privilegi). Mr. Flood stated, how?
ever, that the closing speech was half
an hour, lustrad ?f twenty minutes. So
far as he was concerned, he said that
he preferred tire hour and twenty min?
utes reply to the hour's opening, und half
un hour close.
Governor Montague was not in the city
yesterday and no one was authorized to
rpeak for hitn positively, but IL wus re?
ported from Montague sources that the
Governor's friends would soon rent a
hall in tl?V 'city ,and the Governor would
challenge S?nator Manin to a debate In
which the senator was to operi .in an
hour; tho Governor1 to reply in an hour;
the sciiator t>> have a half hour rejoinder,
and the Governor to clii.su In half an
Jiour?just the reverso of the arrange?
ment at King George Thursday. Whether.
1lje Governor has authorized such an an?
nouncement Ts 111 be known definitely whon
?ie j-?tnrns to the city to-day.

are horribly wrong; and neither do their
own consciences protest, nor Is there any
moral sense In the community "which ade?

The things which have been going on of'

to Oust Standard Oil
From State.
? (By Associated Press.)
TOPLKA, KAiXS., July 7.-Thc law
pansed by the Legislature last winter
appropriating JllO.lOo to bu Id an Inde?
pendent oil refinery at Peru, was to-day
declared unconstitutional by the Supreme
Court in tin opln.on rendered by Asso?
ciate Justice Greene.
The court holds that the construction
of the refinery and the branch peniten?
tiary in connection with It Is a violation
of the State Constitution, which declares
that the State shall never he a party
In carrying on any works of Internal Im?
provement. The construction and opera?

be a work of Intcrnnl Improvement.

Suit Twice Argued.
The United States Circuit Court of Ap?
peals yeslerday handed down an opinion
deckling an important case twice argued
before that tribunal by eminent attor?
neys, especially expert, in patent cases.
It was styled The Imperial Bottle Cap
and Machine "Company vs. tho Crown
Cork and Seal Company;, an appeal from
the . Circuit Court at Baltimore. The
opinion of the appellato court, written
by Judgo W. II. Brawloy. of South Caro?
linn, reverses and remands ilio case,
with directions to the trial court to dis?
miss the bill. The learned Judge In a
carefully prepnred opinion holds that
that -the patents of both companies fire
valid, ?uni that neither Is an Infringement
of the other.
This decision Is one of great Importalice
to tho manufacturers'?? bottle stoppers,
and effectually prevents a monopoly of
Ih? business by tho Crown Cork and
Seal Company, whloli sought to enjoin
and-restrain the Imperial Company from
furthot? usine' Its device? on the conten?
tion Hint It was an Infringement of the
Crown device.
