There is something very interesting
in tbe immense px polarity of Admira'
Dewey. No other American within
the memory of living man has so stirred
to its profoundest depths the enthusi?
asm of the American heart. It it not
alone the greatness of hit achievement
in destroying, as with one angry thun?
derbolt from heaven, the Spjuish tleet
at Manila. It is not eisy to resolve and
explain tbe phenomenon. No doubt it
is in part due to tbe fact that the scene
of the great exploit was at such a vast
distance from home, and from all pos?
sibility of succor in case of disaster.
Some of it is also attributable, no
doubt, to the suddenness with which
the signal victory in the distant Pacific
thrust upon the country new and un
dreampt of problems of colonial expan?
sion and importance. But there can
be no question that one principal
source of the admiration and enthusi?
asm of his countrymen is the simplicity
and modesty of the man, and his abso?
lute freedom from the restless ambition
and.?everish thirst for political promo?
tion wbiob is so almost universal with
the public men of the present day.
Admiral Dewey treats almost with dis?
dain the bare suggestion of hit candi?
dacy for the Presidency ; says that he
really has no active political predilec?
tions ; that, having been born end rear?
ed in Vermont, be is a Republican be
oause republicanism was the vital air
he breathed, but that if he had been
boru in the South he would probably
havo been a Dem i rat. He declares
that he is simply a tailor, without the
slightest pr?tention to tbe character of
education or tbe experience that are re?
quired in the discharge of the presi?
dency, or of any political position
whatever. Nothing sets off true merit
like modest deportment and freedom
from self-assertion. The appellation of
"Puss and Feathers" applied to Gen?
eral Winfleld Soott, bad more than any?
thing and everything else to do with
bis defeat for tbe presidency in 1852.
There is no semblance of vainglorious
pride or pomposity about Dewey ; and
It is, as above-said, hit delightfol sim?
plicity and modesty which kindle? into
enthusiasm the admiration of his coun?
trymen for his splendid exploit at Ma?
Spanish Cabinet Resigns.

All Contests Decided In Favor of the

Not Admit Being Defeated.
Richmond, Va.. Sept K Tht< irreg?
ular or independent legislative oandi
dates received oold comfort at the bands
of the Democratii' State Committee
today. All of the contests adjudicated
by that body were decided in favor it

the latter the House Dominations, the
iudependeut? declined to sutmiit th- ir
cases to the committee Like the
Charlotte contests these were decided
in favor of the nominees recognised by
the old party machinery of the nepec?
The most interesting contest was
that of Senator Bojkin, Of Isle of
Wight, against Dr Shands, who i p.
posed the fanner f>r renom i nation
I Wight is the home county of
Colonel Day. Senator Martin's father
in-law. It was oonceded from the
opening of the campaign that Senator
Biykin and Mr. Martins other friend?
wonld easily win dowu there. When
the day of the mass meeting came
arouud, however, the Tyler people
turned out iu full f ot< g and. they
claimed, developed a untj >nty. The
contest has, therefore, attracted very
general attention. The committee de?
cided in favor of Boykiu.
The next iu interest was the H ?use
contest in Charlotte, where Dr. i'riddy
was opposed by Mr. Kioe. Dr. Pnddy
was a member of the House at the ses?
sion Mr. Martin defeated General Lee,
and supported the former. The tight up
there has been a hard one. During the
discussion today before the committee
in this case. Mr. Bouldin made a state?
ment touching the ? onveution held at
tue oonrthouse, at which tbe election
of Mr. Monroe to the county chairman?
ship was claimed to have been made
He said in reply to a question that he
considered Dr. Priddy the only uomi
nee. but Congressman Swanson elicited
the information that it was remotely
possible that another meeting might
hereafter be called to put up a nominee
other than Dr. Priddy. The speaker
predicted that events would take place
hereafter iu Charlotte county which
would cause the Danville riot to pale
into insignificance if the committee
drives the real Dem cracy from the
The Laucafeter contest was taken up
Mr. Cbinn, of Kichmond county, was

Mr. Lloyd T. Smith made a forceful
speech. In the outset he resented the
suggestion that he appeared to repre?
sent Mr. Jones, to whom, however,
he paid a a complimentary tribute. He
believed the contests of Lancaster and
Richmond conld be settled iby the
joint Bub-oommiteee meeting proposed.
COMMITTEE OF FIVE.
Mr. Hay offered a resolution, which
was amended by Mr. Swanson, em?
powering the chairman of tbe State
Oommittee to appoint a oommittee of
five whose duty it should be to finally
pass upon the Lancaster-Richmond dis?
pute in the event of failure of the
County Committee to harmonize tbe
differences in ten days. The chairman
was made ex-officio chairman of the
speolal committee. The resolution was
Tbe chair announced that he would
recognize Mr. Lee as county chairman
for tbe present.
In the Shenandoah case the indepen?
dents refused to submit their claims
and Mr. Fuller, tbe candidate for the
House, was recognized by tbe regulars,
and was aocepted by the committee.
It is probable that the action of the
oommittee in the Isle of Wight and
Charlotte caaes will meet with the op?
position of the followers of the inde?
pendents in those counties. The meet?
ing of tbe oommittee today was quite
largely attended. Conspicuous among
those present were Senators Daniel and
Martin. The former is not a member
of the body, but the latter is. They
occupied seats in a retired spot in the
committee room Both gentlemen were
in excellent spirits, and during tbe day
were recipients of hearty congratula?
tions upon the way in which the Sena?
torial campaign seems to progress.
Governor Tyler is here, but on a very
different mission from attending a po?
litical gathering. He came here to re
ceive the remains of General Hetb
, whioh reached here this afternooi
Governor Tyler does not for a moment
yield to the idea that he is defeated for
tbe Senatorship. Major Heth Tyler,
his son and manager, who speaks for
him, claims that bis father will have
50 votes in tbe canons at the opening.
It is stated with equal positiveness
that five men who bave been instructed
for Martin have said if their votes will
elect Tyler, he can have them They
did ii"t believe, these live candidates
are quoted an writing, that the conven
ventlons which nominated them ro
deeted the sentiments of the pe pie.
