When the Diepatch comes out for a
debt settlement it wdl help ina small
manner, at least, to beaten the rescue of
the State from this dreadful slum of
boycotting in the nain.' of authority, and
bulldozing even Stab officials into forcing
' iti/ens out ot their rights.
Some radical new-paper- at thc North
like to prate aboul bulldozing voters in
the South, ddie fad is that in Vii-inia
elections have been fairer than in any
e.ther state. Th'T'e may have been Iso?
lated cases of corruption, but all citizens
poll their vote- even when they appear at
the poll- herded Ly Mahone-like sheep.
The election Tuesday, under Demo

v.as ever known.
