GENERAL MAH0NE AGAIN
HE IS8UE3 THAT GREAT ADDRESS.
Reviewing tho Causes or the Receal
Dcmocratlo Victory In
From a KcKdJusler Ntntid
PETEitsnuno, Vo.,-Nov. 19. Tho .
address of Senator Mahone to tho
Rendjuster party, on tho results of tho recent
oleotloii in this State, was mado public
lost night. Tho documcut contains fully
flvo thousand words, aud is evidently intended
for tho peoplo of tho United States,
as well aa to the party to whom it is addressed.
Tho salient points aro as follows:
'To tho IUadjustor Party of Virginia:
"When a dominant party, organized
around great and enduring principles, and
composed of a decided majority of voters
In a Stato, la suddenly overwhelmed and
mado to appear a minority, it is of tho
highest cousequenco that overy member of
tho party should inform himself whothor
that result has boon brought about by a
freo and honest oxprossiou of tho popular
will; and if so, which of its avowed principles
has bocomo obnoxious to tho majority,
or, if all aro still adhcrod to, which
of thorn has boon betrayed by thoso
with tho groat duty of applying
and enforcing them in tho government of
"When tho Bourbon faction assembled in
Lynchburg in July last to formulate a
platform, a largo oloment of it membership
avowedly and oponly favored tho
adoption of tho color lino. Bourbon Journals
proclaimed that tho truo issue of th
canvass was tho race issuo, and that the
contest should bo forced Into a struggle
botwoed tho whites and tho blacks. That
such a plank would bo incorporated Into
tho platform adopted Boomed highly
until tho final action taken dovolopod
tho fact that, for roa&ous best known to
thomselvos, tho Bourbons had determined
not to muko written proclamation of their
purposo to draw tho color lino. Evon tho
most moderate Bourbon did not pretend
that this failure to draw the color Hue in
tho platform sprung from lack of
purposo so to do, but it was admitted
on all hands that it had not
beon formally adopted from motivos of
policy. Tho temporary chairman of the
Convention addressed himself to "tho
white peoplo of Virginia." The progress
of the canvass doveloped an organlzod system
of duplicity practiced by our opponents,
whereby, in black districts, thoy appealed
to tho blacks for support ou tho
ground that our party gave thorn no recognition
and used them as moro tools aud
catspuws, whllo at sarao timo, in white
districts their appeals wero mode to every
projudieo of raco to savo tho whites from
an alleged purposo, on our part, to elevate
tho blacks above thorn. Sonsatlonal circulars
from Danville, Cumberland aud
filled with false statements of
wrongs and outrages committed by blacks;
cartoons depicting negroes punishing
white children: pictures of negro men
with a white child on cno knoo and a black
child on tho other, infamous perjuries as
to tho utterances of our public speakers
nnd lies, groat and small, calculated to influence
raco prejudice, were spread broadcast
through tho white districts of tho
State, backed by corruption money without
stint, whilo thoy were studiously suppressed
in tho black districts and thoir absence
supplied by a doublo fund of monoy
to "buy or bully" tho blacks.
Tho massacre in Danville is dignified by
Bourbonism with the namo of riot. Tho
facts, as gathered from all sources, aro
that upon Saturday ovenlng proceeding
tho election, just after thoDanvOlo negroes
had roeeived their woekly pay aud wero
buying their Sunduy supplies in a crowded
market placo, a white man had an altercation
with a negro and wlilpjod him.
Tho fight was ended and no other
came to tho roscuo of tho
punished man, but tho progrnmmo
was not interrupted by this circumstance.
An armed gathorlng of tho "best icoile"
and of tho "best aud bravest" was conveniently
near, and in a moment a murderous
throng pourod out of tho building whoro
thoy wore assembled, opening a deadly flro
upon tho unarmed, defenseless and flylug
negroes, llow many wero killed no ono
knows, and no one will probably learn the
truth-, for tho condition of things still in
Danville is such that tho truth cannot be
learned. That thoy were shot in tho backs
like dogs whilo running away;
that no pistol shot was fired by
a black man ; that no white man was injured,
savo by his own friends; that for
days tho poor vio'.ims wero found dead in
alloys, In warehouses, and under houses,
llko poisoned rats that had crawled away to
die; that tho negroes fled to the woods, to
tho Stato of North Carolina, to the four
winds of heaven; these aro a few of tho
facta of this bloody, wholcsalo murder,
which was telegraphod far and near by
Bourbons as an insolent uprising of tho
blacks against tho whites. Simultaneously
with these occurrences tho crack of 'tho Bourbon
weapon engaged in political murdor resounded.
Tho , effects! wore all that the
bulldozers could have hoped for. In tho
city of Danville, whoro Cameron received,
iu 1631, votes numbering 789, and Wise, in
1882, received S41 votes and whero 1,379
Iteadjuster votes wero enrollod, but twenty-six
votes wero cast for tho Coalition candidate,
whose life was threatened and
whose collln, it is said, had been actually
mado and paid for by the party of honor
and Influence. j repeat,
thoroforo that the ttrugglo against
Bourbonism must bo renewed forthwith
and that it is a struggle to tho death,
and, as your Chairman, 1 call upoii every
loyal Roadjuster to rally to tho standard
and reform to fight anow tho battle against
their old Bourbon foe in the national campaign
of 1834, bearing in mind tho old
watch-word of a 'freo ballot and a fair
count. Wo havo a right to demand and
oxpoct support from tho Stato, and, if need
bo, from the Federal Government, In
of tho rights of man, guaranteed by
both Qovernufents, and put at stake to pro-euro
tho ascendancy of an unscrupulous
party that sticks at nothing to acqulro
power. William Maiionk, Chairman.

John Clair, Superintendent of the Weddol
Mines, of Mill Hollow, passed by. Ha it
an old gentloman, woli, known throughout
the wholo country, and well respected. At
ho pawed the crowd of roughs thoy assailed
him with a storm of jeers and abuso, 'and
one of the gang, named Dennis Keller,
shouted to him to go faster or
ho would shoot. Clair, not thinking
that tho wretch would carry' out hit
threat, ropliod good kumorodly: "Fire
away, Dennis." The words were scarcoly
out of his mouth when Keller drew his pistol
and flrod four shots In rapid succession
at tho defonsoless old man. Every ,sh6l

another In tho abdomen, another In the arm.
Ono shattered Ids thigh. Clair was
brought to tho hospital In this city,
where he died last ovenlng, Keller was arrested

in Mill Hollow last nltrht was Intense, nnd

Tho American Press AMorlatloa R
fuses to b "I.ootetl."
Cincinnati, Nov. 19. A committeofrom
tho typographical union ordered a strike In
tho American Press Association office; this
city, this afternoon, on tho ground that the
typo should bo measured minion, although
tho tyio med is brevier and. more thaii up
to the regulation standard of "fatness." It
is claimed that tho typo should bo measured
minion, because its face is smaller than
regular brovior. Tho Association has always
paid the highest prices in tho city,
having voluntarily raised tho prlco for
composition to 42c. per thousand several
months ago, which is two conts moro than
is paid anywhere west of Now.YorkJ nThe
unreasonable demand was promptly refused,
and several of the men were Indignant
that the union should order a striko
on such grounds. The alleged cause Is
probably but a subterfuge, whilo tho real
objoct is an effort to cripplo tho numerous
interior, daily newspapers depending on the
Association for their telegraphlo news
which papers aro materially affecting
the circulation and profits of the Cincinnati
dailies. Tho Association will not bo
crippled but a few days at tho most. t ,

Borne of them were expert enough to blow
pretty lUtlerimrs'of smoko that sailed up
into tbaair, and, watched by the fair maker,

tables tho smoke was so thick as to almost
Lido the faces of tho smokers. I was greatly
amused in watching ono of tho ladles taking
her first lesson in smoking. She put the
cigarette daintily botwecn her red lips and
touched a tuatch to it as if the was afraid It
would explodo liko a "pulled"

was inexpertanord and "pulled" too hard, for
tho smoko wont down into her lungs, choking

the time being.
Such chattering and burstsot laughter! It
was talk, talk, talk, singularly and collectively,

Each related her experiences
while shopping that day, and told of tho

was rolailod In too most interesting manner,
with spicy personal comments. All present
seemed to bo convivial spirits. I noticed the
manner in which thoy disposed of their beer.
Thsydidnot pour it down thoir throats man
fathkm, but sipped it as ono would wine.
Another thing I noticed was that each paid
for her own refreihincat, and that "treating"
ovideatly was not' popular with them.
Nono soemod ill at aro, and, on tho contrary,
appeared ta to quite nt homo. Two glasses
was about tho limit of Individual Indulgence,
although I saw ono stout matron dispose of
flvo beers In oompiMstivcly quick succession.
There was no boLrtcrousnesa, rough expressions
or actions, and, to tell tho
truth, they were as well behaved as if they
wore attaiUaa tea party. The majority of
them wore of (bo better class, and I saw but
cxm who appeared "off color." Americans
predominated. All wore well dreesed, many
of them wearing costly silks and valuablo
jowolry. Sorno were undoubtedly mothers,
others daughters of well-to-do peoplo. They
came and wont, bidding goodby to frionds,

"after tea" I found to be a small glace of beer,
while a "Boston" was a little larger.
Occasionally a dame of mature years would
call for 1a. little claret or sherry, nnd I am
sorry to cay that ono of tho women ordered a

for the exclusive patronage of women will

from what I hare seen and from statements
recently made by a promlnont physician of
this city. This gentleman has a largo practice,
