L 0. Wendenleurg was nominated to
the State Senate from the. Sixteenth
Senatorial District over Judge T. Ash
by Wickham.
The victory of Mr. Wendenburg,
while not pre'elicted by the politicians,
was largely due, it is said, to his bril

I of votes cast outside of Henrico, and
\ when that county reported it was shown
i that he was clearly in the lead.
