A CAMPAIGN OF BITTERNESS.
It is a sail spectacle tei member? of
the Democratic party to have to
be forced observers of a campaign
such as the present senatorial on?? in
this Stale, which is happily drawing
to ?? close. Sincv the inauguration
of th?? primary s/stem of nomina?
tions MM exceedingly bitter cum
paignsliave taken place in Virginia,
but nein?? eif those which have (me
before have ever approached the
present one in that respect. Charges
of every character, vituiierntion.
abuse anel every thing which gu?s to
disrupt a political party has found
place in the present light and the
campaign material furnisbeel tin
Virginia Republicans by Democratic
speakers and writers will, if com?
piled, which it n?) d?eubt will lu-, lili
? ur.liime almost as large r\s the
hand-books issued in national cam?
paigns by the party managers. Of
course all of this is disceiuraging to
the party at large and it sows elis
sensions in the ranks whi??1, time
alone can heal anda l?>ng t.tie- ?,t
that. In pleasing contrat-1 to oui
Virginia campaign step ?ote
border line into Marylantl ?u.d re
view the Democratic guU?rn;.torial
campaign in that State, which ended
? few days ago with the ?.le.fi-at ?>1 !
Blair Lee by Arthur P. Gorman, tlu? j
margin being one delegate in the
latter's fav??r. Despite the eloec
fight between this*? ?two Maryland
ers the campaign was cinducte?l ?>n
the part of both without any e>f tlu
personal bitterness which has Uvn
so marked in Virginia this summer.
[Senators Gorman anel Lw discuss?, ?1
each other's records, but the dafKUaV
sion on the part of both ?lid nut ge>
beyond parliamentary bounds. Fur?
thermore ami better -still theae gen?
tlemen, especially Senator Lee, dis?
cussed public questions, giving his
position thereon and in this respect
the campaign there differed from the
one here. We very much hope that j
the lesson taught by the pie-sent
campaign will i stop Virginia Demo
crats from ever again invoking the
deplorable methods used this sum?
mer.
OUR LAX DIVORCE LAWS
Lawyers and laymen all over the
country continue to urge the import
anee, aye th/? necessity, of uniform
divorce laws ami yet State legisla?
tures come and go, but the laws re?
lating to divorce remain in the same
eld haphazard shape ami legal se,?
aiations betwt?en husltand and wif?
continue to multiply to the shame
of this country and every State in it,
except South Carolina where no di?
vorces are possible. The Astor-Forcej
engagement has br?>ught prominent?
ly before the public the agitation in
favor of uniformity in divorce- laws
and in this respect has served I gooi
purpose, though it is hard to under
staod why th??ae two people should
be singled out at this time as awful
examples of depravity, when as a
matter of fact rich men anel poor
men all ?ever the country are mar?
ried year by year under exactly sim?
ilar circumstances. Presumably Col.
Astor's immense wealth has focused
publie attention on the coming nup?
tials between himself and Miss
Force and the fact of his previous
divorce, under somewhat suspicious
circumstances, has made the? forth?
coming marriage disagreeably no?
torious for him and his fiancee, but, j
as stated, his case is no different,
neither better nor worse, than thous?
ands of others and the? fault lies in
the shameful laxity of our divorce
laws. It is a disagreeable thing to
admit, but it is nevertheless true.
that it is almost as easy to secure a
divorce in Virginia as it is in a num?
ber of the Western States, where
this traffic has become an n?iteirie-us.
Desertion f??r three years, two or
three witnesses that the parties have
not lived together for that length of
time, evidence that reconciliation
seems impossible and then a d?-c?ee
which breaks the sacred tie which
united the parties as man and wife.
Shortly afterwards in many cases
the plaintiff in the action, who is or
should be without fault, marries
again and what is worse the defend?
ant, whose act of desertion brings
about the divorce, is also able to
marry under the laws of som?? other
State and once married outside of
Virginia brings his or her spouse
back to Virginia without danger or
fear of any consequences. Such
things are disgraceful and should no
longer be tolerated. W? have uni?
formity of legislation on billsand ne?
gotiable notes. Is this more import?
ant than the matter of divorce?
Senator LaFollette modestly con?
fesses that he would like to In? presi?
dent. Wm. Jennings Bryan on?? or
twice ?admitted the same thing and
LaFollette might profit by his ex?
ample.
Champ Clark's criticism of Mr.
Taft's speech at Representative
Gardner's home wasenough to make
the president sit up and take notice.

himl Martin; that nil other class?
es of citizens were divided; thai
there was a remarkable ananlmlt)

est. Independent men, who would
obey only tho dictates of their
consciences, were excluded from
place and power, and that only the]
servile were acceptable to the
ring
Mr Downing argued along the
same lines of thought, giving in?
dividual Installe'? s ief the re?sult of
ring rule. His tribute to Congress?
man Jones, bis neighbor anel friend,
with a recital of his Democratic r- <?

MARTIN AND SWANSON
AT NEWPORT NEWS
Following nonpolitical aeldresses
delivered at the Labor Hay ce-l?
bration at Buckroe Beech Monday
Senators Swanson ami Mat tin Mon?
day night addressed s fair siz-ei
i-rowd in Newport News and were
e-onliai welcome,
Se-nator Martin spoke first, ami
In an address lasting more than
an hour repeat?! much of t he
speech he has been eb-iivering since
taking the stump li?- made no ele
fenso or explanation of the Glaagow
letters, and his only referenes to
the charges on this sent?? made bj
Congressmann Jont-s was that he
had not ouly racetved tin? MOd,
but hail raised thousands of dollars
for the r?demption of the State
from negro rule. If there was sin h
a thing as a "yellow dog fund," be
saiel, Mr. Jones got his elivvy. His
address was taken up chiefly in <le- !
fens? of his vote on tariff moasures
and he declared that !n every in?
stance in which ho is hargeel with
voting v ith Senator Ablrie h, Se-na?
tor Daniel did likewise. He rielieu
lesd the record of his opponent, Con?
gressman Jones, who, he mid, had
accomplished nothing hi the House
during the twer.'y years he has
been in office.
Senator Swanson confined himself
chiefly to a refutation of tho charg?
es made by Congressman Class and
ja revle? of his record and echleve
iiicnts while governor, congressman
anel sent tor. Both speakers dented
and ridiculed tho Idea of a political
ring ruled over by Senator Martin.
SWANSON AT GLASS' HOME
Senator Swanson invaded Tuesday
night the? home town ?if his opponent,
having an audience estimated at 1, loo.
The meeting was cn'husiastic.
He said he invaded the home town eif
his competitor because he hail gone to
his borne?, anil he wanted to answer
"tb?- slander-ius and vituperative
speech" maile from the same platform
by (.lass. Referring to negotiations
for a joint debate, he said his opponent
hail been ungentlemanly in not ?ending
him a written challange.
He rejieated his charge that Glass
was against the employers' liability
bill in the State Senate in 1908, and
only supported it at the next session
because it was in the party platform.
Senator Swanson characterize Mr.
Class as a "ferret" and "saint from
Lynchburg. "

MARTIN'S SPEECH AT STAUNTON

sympathetic aiielience eif MO pt
who liberally applauded the points be
made- again.-t Mr. .lone-s. He said that]
Jone-s wa- tie- ranking l)enioeratic
membiT of the House, but that he had
never ae-complislied anything in the
more than twenty years of his service.
When tnc- House was reorganized at
the extra session, the only honor con?
ferred em JoneN was that he was al?
lowed, on account of his seniority, to
i-tioi:-?? his syat without drawing for it,
and he was made chairman of the un?
important Committee of Insular Affairs.
He analyzed some of his votes with
Aldrich that Jones attacked, and he
claimed they were right. He charged
Jones with Mppreuii g tin? facts that
these votes were all on amendments,
and that on the ftnsl vote em the bill as
a whole, he voted against it.
He has vieieel against ever, protective
tariff bill since he has been in Congress.
The Thompeon letters he dlsrusssd
briefly.
He said he had, time and again, gone
to New York to appeal to railroad
presidents for money and to carry the
election (or the Democrats to main?
tain white supremacy, and he charged
that Jones was using all he could get in
the same way. I'h?? money alluded to
in the? Thompson letters, he said,was to
! repay advances mide in the previous
campaign.
Senator Martin claimed be woulel be
nominated in the primary by 15,000
majority.

required of each candidate to help
defray the expenses of the election,
"and this amount," says Sniatot
