The Senatorial campaign was practi?
cally opened at Houston, the county
scat of Halifax, last Monday, when the
lion. Wllllatn A. Jone?, of Richmond
county. Congressman from the First
district, who lias taken the stump for
Governor Tyler, and Mr. Clem. Green,
of Charlotte, one of Senator Martin'?
supporters, met on the stump in Joint
MR, MARTIN'S POSITION.
Mr. Joik-s opened the debate. lie
"?Mr. Green, who is hero to represent
Mr. Martin, lias in Ills pocket a. letter
from thai gentleman, saying Im is now,
and alWnyts hat] been, in favor of the
election of Senators by the) people. I
Went to Mr. Martm at Itoauoko and bc
sotight him to vote for a. resolution to
that effect, ami lie told me there thai
In- was opposed to such action on prin- 1
ciplc. Two years ago you (pointing to
Senator Harksdale) Introduced a reso?
lution in the Virginia Senate with the
same object in view, but tit'- junior
Senator's inlluonco was put to work, led
by Mr. Wickhnm, a railroad attorney,
nnd Mr. Uoykln, and it was declared
defective. Who inspired that action?
Thomas S. Martin, who now a?sks you
t>> fiend hint back to the Schale."
Mr. .Ion .-, at this p.tint, spoke of the.
charge that the May coliven'tlon was
(limed lit Senator Martin, and said:
"Wiiat iighl has Martin or any other
man to remain in tin- Senate if the peo?
ple don't want liiin there? Great God,
to whom does this bountry belong; to
Mr. Martin, or lo tin- people, who sup?
port it by their brain ami brawn'."'
KVtA ? HZED TYLER.
Mr. Jones spent considerable time In
discussing the popular election ques?
tion, after Which he culogiaed Governor
Tyler at considerable length. Concern,
liig the statement that tie- G?verhor
was Inexperienced In national affairs,
the speaker ask- I what i xperlencc did
Martin have, how many in tin- audience
knew In- oven lived before he was elect*
ed Senator? lb- was known, so far as
be was known at. ail. as the ngent and
lobby lilt of a railroad corporation.
WHAT HAS MARTIN DON 127
"I have served with him every day,"
said th't speaker;" ho lias been in Con?
gress, and I say if llogc Tyler can':
make a better Senator than he I mn
sorry tor him. Mr. Martin has been
there six years. Has anybody ever'
beard <>f his mnkliig a speech? Often
have I In aid northern Senators attack
[Virginia and the South, hut never has
Martin raised his voice to repel the at?
DISPENSOR OK PATRON AG 19.
Mr. Jones referred to the action of
the Roanoke convention in endorsing
Daniel nnd remaining silent as to
Marlin, and then turning to Mr. Green
In- asked htm to point "tit what work
Mr. Martin had ever done to entitle
him to re-election. ' I am told," Mr.
Jones continued, "though I don't vouch
tor the truth of it. that lie has secured
a great deal of patronage for his con
Btltuchts. How has that patronage
been dispensed? To reward the frit nds
and workers of Tit..mas s. Mat tm, nnd

"There are two kinds ??:' r.mis?pos?
itive ami negative. Martin is both posi?
tive ami negative, lb- can't speak. That
Is liol Ills fault, but lie at least OUglll to
know how :?> vote, and not knowing
that. In- otiglii to have sense enough in
follow the b ad of John W. Daniel. I'.u:
In- never did that. The silver question
bos been up in the Senate twice since
Martin went Ihere, nnd if yon will bo
llevo ine, ho \.-. d on,.- for silver ami
once tor gold. How in- will vote ?ie\:
tint - no man this sldo of Heaven can
VOTES I?< >ik;i:i>.
Mr. Jones picked up a copy of the
C.trcsslonnl Record showing tho vote
on tin- war-revenue measure, and. dis?
secting it carefully, said that Mr. Mar?
tin had dodged ev.-ry voto of nny Im?
portance of tlie- bill. lie asserted posi?
tively that every other Senator in the
body was voting on this important
measure. Mr. Martin voted on the
clauses and amendments, that counted
for naught, and escaped into the cloak?
room lo avoid liolng recorded on tin*
Important ones. Continuing, the speaker
said: "Taking a. retrospective view of
tin- men who have represented Virginia
1n the Senat.-, can yon say that Thom
ns S. .Martin is a worthy successor of
tho-e noblo sons of Virginia?"
Mr. Jones spoko nl considerable
length on this point, ami then charg?
ing the junior Senator with an attempt
at bossisin, he referred to Hannntsin
In oiti... Qunyism in Pennsylvania ami
Platt ism in New York, ami said: "I'm!
great God, don't let us have Bitch rule
In old Virginia."
Mr. Jones was only allow ed nn? hour
in which to ..p.-.n. ami Iiis time being
up. he concluded as follows: "I have no
nsplrations for ofllce, despite tit - stn'.
nionts of boss-ridden papers, lull I am
h.-re to prevent the election of a boss,
If l can help it."
The speaker took his p at. nmld loud
hpplatise, but before doing so nsked
Mr. Green (o explain, if lie could, Mr.
Martin's failure to vote on the war
Mi:. GREEN'S SPEECH.
Mr. Green occupied an hour -and a.
half. In the outset he characterized
Mr. Martin a i the most pi erlcss Demo;
erat, within the limits of Virginia!' Said
he: "Had I been passing the court
h Oil SO Whllo Mr. Jones was tspoakintr.
rind nol known what was in progress,
I should have th night that Mr. Martin
v.ns being tried for murder. Mr. Jones
lias spent his time in tin- use of invec?
tives against Mar.in. but not one word
ban he said about his straw man?'Sen?
Tau eh: er followed this, and er!<?? of
"right" were h'nrd. Mr. Green correct
cd himself and said that Governor Ty?
ler would never bo Senator Tyler. Con?
tinuing; ho Bald: "Wo are Inflicted
every now and then with measles and
smallpox, and about every ten years
by the "outs.* who cannot get In with
an epidemic of pol deal reform. Daniels
tells yon that Martin Is a greater Sena?
tor than he, and all the. Democratic
Congressmen, save Jones and lllxey,
endorse Martin." llr. Jones asked
what Mr. Martin lias done. "I havo his
record riuht here (waving papers aloft).
The laben inir people have endorsed him
from all over the State, and the busi?
ness men of Norfolk endorsed him for
Iiis work in getting through an appro?
priation for deepening ihe channel
Mr. Green referred to the service Mr.
Martin rcndi red the state lieijt Com?
mission and then, asserting that Gov?
ernor Tyler helped Martin to beat l.ee.
said: "Well, now. if Martin was good
enough to beat l.ee with, he is good
enough to bury Tyler with."
"Tyler." Mr. Green continued, "de?
nounced Martin as the boss of the ofllc?
TYl.KU AND MAI IT IN'.
*'I am t?i years olil," said Mr. Green,
" and ever sine,. 1 was born H?ge Tyl

ran and ran until the people elected him

ator, and it" he succeeds In gratifying
this ambition he will give up the gov?

DODGED MARTIN'S RBC< >ltD.
Concerning Mr. Martin's failure t>>
vote on the war-revenue bill, Mr. Green
said there were a whole l"t of Demo?
crats in the clonk room at the same
time lb" junior Senator from Virginia
was there. This polm he then dismissed,
and taking up Me- Itoahoke resolution
endorsing Daniel, ho said that Mr.
Martin was the "getter up" of tie- r is
olution, and now lie was being blamed
beentise he did noi endorse himself.
The sponki r made a humorous allu?
sion to Mr. Tyler's candidacy, asserting
that lie was pin up to lx< shot at after
; .Mr. Jones had dcclim d to run. and after
I Mr. Montague had found he was loo
young und Mr. G ode had found that
he wus too old. lie reft rrcd to the G >v

I he had gotten the nigger regiment "tip.

people of Virginia would say to hit

are till you servo year term out, and
! then if yen are good we w.lll sec about
giving you something else in ill" si
by and by." The editorial in the i.e.
Ilglnus Herald endi r.-!ns Martin for his
work on the Richmond College bill wa
I referred to by the speaker, and then
he continued: "If Mr. Martin were the
shiny reptile his opponents have mad
