A number of out of State contem?
poraries have commented favorably
on the speedy manner in whioh a
jury was obtained in Virginia fur the
trial of the Beattie case in Chester?
field county, on?- of the Chica??-?
newspapers comparing conditions
here with those existing in Co?.k
county. Illinois, where it seems if is
almost impossible to secure a jury,
so earnestly do citizens there shirk
jury service. Th ounty of Chcster
field and the people of the county
deserve ail of the pleasant things be
ing said in this connection, U-cause
the people gave a splendid illustra?
tion of good citizenship in refusing
to shirk the duty placed upon them
by the State. The Beattie trial is net
ordinany trial. Outside of its sen?
sational features the life of a huniun
being hangs in the liai ?mee anel one
can easily understand that no man
cares to sit on a jury which has (he
tremendous responsibility of passing
on the life or death of a fellow be*
ing, but these Chesterfield nu n. with
their duty clear before them, wvnt
into court and like men answered
without hesitation e>r ?vasion the
questions propounded hy the court.
As a result no ignorant jury, s.uh a>
tried the Coopers in Tennessee, no
corrupt jury suchas trieel the brib?
ery esses, connected with Lorioier'i
election, in Chicago, sits in the jadff
ment on Henry Beattie, but ?astead
a jury of twelve honest, upright ami
intelligent Virginians, reaely t?t do
full justice te? the State anel to the
accused. It ?3 refreshing to r.?n
template such a spectacle as tins and
we csn only hope that it will always
be thus in Virginia.
Against great odds Senator Biair
Lee, in whose campaign the people
of Fredericksburg, to a number of
whom he is known as treasurer of
the National Mary Washington Mon?
ument Associstii.n, took considera?
ble interest, made a magnificent
fight for the Democratic nomination
for governor of Maryland. Kmn
the fsce of the returns it seems that
his opponent, State Senator A. P.
Gorman, will have a majority of one
vote only in the convention, and this
majority attained only by reason of
the complete control of Baltimore
city by the State organization, which
backed Gorman's candidacy. With
all the prestege of his father's name
and memory and with the united
support of Senator John Walter
Smith and his followers, Mr. dor?
m?n appears to have won oat by
such a scant margin that his appar?
ent victory is really a defeat. Sena?
tor L?ee, whether nominated or de?
feated, looms larger than ever lee
fore as the man destined t?t eventu?
ally defeat the dominant element in
the Maryland Democracy and his
nomination for governor two years
from now is almost as certain as
anything can be. His fight this year
will go down in the annals of the
Maryland Democracy as the most re?
markable waged in that State since
the Civil war.
It is announce that Senator La
Follette will stay in Washington
from now until Congress meets
again. The Senate may prepare it?
self for some lengthy harangues.
The Democrats are claiming and
the country seems disposed to ac?
cord them the credit for the reci?
HAVE JONES AND GLASS
VIOLATED PUBLICITY LAW?
Their Campaign Kx pense Account?
Not Filed in Time.
A special from Washington says:
Primary election expense statements
from Senator* Martin and Swanson, of
Virginia, the tint to be filed under the
new publicity law that went into effect
Aug. 19, reached the office of Secretary
Bennett of the Senate, at Washington
Wednesday. In the absence of Secre?
tary Bennett officials of his office de?
clined to make them public.
Two of the candidates in the Virginia
senatorial primaries. Congressmen W.
A. Jones and Carter Class, have not
yet reported their expenses to the sec?
retary of the Senate, and apparently
stand in violation of the law. The re?
quirement is that the first expense
statement shall be tiled not later than
ten days before the primary election.
Tuesday waa ?the last day in which
statements could be deposited in the
mail to comply with the law, the date
of toe primary being Sept 7. ?o re?
porta had been received Wednesday
from Congressmen Jones and Glass,
who are contestant? in the Virginia
race against The two Senators.
Failure to file statements within the
required time before election, if done
wilfully, carries with it the penalties of
the law of 1910, namely, a fine not ex
ceeding (1,000 or imprisonment for not
more than one year or both.

cause you to cast your ballot on
Sept. 7 for Swansoii against a man
who is practically unknown to
voters of this city What claim
haa Mr. Carter Olaaa oa th*> people
of ?"rederickaburg? Absolutely
nono. Swauson has a claim, hut
this is not all Swansoii was a 1 iv*?
Governor, while Class has been ?
dead Congressman Swansoii gave
Virginia the urns' bssineea-llke
ami the most progressive adminis?
tration the State t?as had since
the war and if Mr Class has ev? r
done anything in Congress 1 have
yet to hear of it I>uring Swan
son'g administration new life was
Injected* into the good roads move?
ment, into the high school move
ment and into various pro.
polici?-8. and Carter Class' newspa?
per was one of the first to BSj
so. These things were not done
by the Legislature on its own in
iative; they were done as the re?
sult of Cov Swanaon's recoiiiineiida
tions, contained in his messages.
To combat all of this material good
accomplished by Swauson .wo are
told by Class that ho Isn't fit to re?
ceive our vote because twelve
years ago Swauson. then a mem?
ber of Congress, bought four hun?
dred shares of Tobacco stock. This
heinous charge Swansoii lout no
time in admitting, and aft?
what does it signify? Ikk'b any
aenaible man In Virginia, not sway?
ed lay the vindn tiveness and bias
of Hon. Carter Class, embittered as
he is by the eoBxactossneaa of sure
defeat, believe that had Congress?
man Swanaon been laflseneed by
this purchase made during a r?-?-ss
of Congress, to do anything inim?
ical to the tobacco interests of Vir?
ginia, his constituents of the Fifth
district, located as it is in the- heart
of the tobacco section, would have
continued to send him to Congress
by even increasing majorltiee? This
alone answers Mr. Class' pm-rile at?
tempt to make it appear that. Swan
son, ^by purchasing on a pure spec?
ulative margin this tobacco stock,
was untrue to his constituency. If
1 mistake not all of this was
known when Swanson was a can?
didate for Governor and his former
opponent? considered it too trivial
to uso. Does any man suppose
that the Dem?crata of the Fifth
district, in which is located a gn-.it
tobacco center, the city of Danvill?*,
would have consistently supported
Claude Swanson in every fight in
which he has participated if he
had by one act or dee<!, while a
member of Congress, been falso to
the tobacco interests of that dis
trlct? There can be no sound .-n
swer to this argument. Outside of
this matter nothing is urged against
Swanson and little against Martin.
save the "shop worn" cry of ma?
chine. The men who cry machine,
U the principal ahoutera he inves?
tigated, are those who have either
been defeated for public office in
Virginia or those who have I.B
refused appointment by the men
In power. It is no longer an ef?
fective slogan In Virginia. Better
reasons must be advanced, in my
opinion, before the people of Vir?
ginia will be willing to remove from
public Hfo tho able Senator, who
now leada his party in the Sen?
ate, or tho gentleman who fills S?-n
ator Daniel's aeat.
Before concluding, I hope I may
be pardoned for again referring to
my aonrlco in the House of Dele?
gates In 1908, but as it has so
often been charged that Senator
Martin has interferrod with and con?
trolled legislation at Richmond, I
aimply want to say that during the
aesalon of 1908, which was a most
important one, that never by word,
telegraph, telephone, letter, direct?
ly or indirectly, did Senator Mar?
tin ever suggest to me, though I
knew him intimately, any wish on
his part for the passage or de?
feat of any legislation or
tho election of any man
to Judgeshlp or other office in tho
gift of the Legislature, and only
once did Governor Swanson do so,
and that once was a request from
him that I vote for the election
of members of the Corporation
Comlsslou by the peoplo, to which
request I declined to accede. My
experlenco in this respect was not
unlike that of other members of
both House and Senate and Is
only given to show that much which
haa been written and aaid relative
to Senator Martln'e Interference
at Richmond is Just as untrue as
many of the other cheap political
canards brought forth during this
campaign. In the Judgment of the
writer, when the votes are counted
In Fredericksburg it will be found
that both Senators Martin and Swan
son have been overwhelmingly en?
dorsed by the people of this city.

the kidneys get worse. Don't neglect
your kidneys. Help the kidneys with
the reliable and safe remedy, Doan's
Kidney Pills, which has cured people
right here in Freelericksburg.

grew so painful that I could not elo my
housework and stooping, lifting ar any
eiver-exertion aggravated my suffering.
I tried all kinds of remeelies but nothing
helped me until I procured Doan's KirT

and my back has not troubled me
