whether or not the St-at?* commit?

tin- ballots and poll books?a
rather neat question whose answer
may not be readily ascertained
from a reading of the statute.
Tho second letter is as follows:
October _?1.
l>?*ar Mr. Kllyson,?\o doubt
you have seen The Journal of
yesterday and the Richmond Vir?
ginian of today. I beg to eall
your attention to the fact that
eart?fas rulliurs Of the Distriet
Committee were appealed from,
and we were informed that a
copy of the minutes would at
once be forwarded to you and*
that yon would call the commit
t?*e together at once for the pur
|k>m? of passing ii|*on the qncs
lions raised. Now the Virginian
states that you say you will "call
the committ<*e as soon as con?
test is noted." Now will you be
kind enough to writ?* me fully
by return mail your views on
calling the eommittee and what
rule? ami regulations govern a
contest?tn oth?*r words, what
modes have Iieen prescribed by
the ??onimitt?*?* for contest? and
In what manner.
Surely th?* ??onmilttee must
have performed this tluty in some
way. but It seems from th?
papers that the matter Is in the
air and that no persons in au?
thority and who ought to know
have been able to throw any
light on this onhjeet of contest
or matters of appeal from th?*
Distriet Committee to the State
?Conunittee. Now 1 am asking
this information as a fellow
Democrat, not in behalf of any
person. I want Information, and
you are the proper person to give
it to me. as you arc In possession
of all the matters itertainlng to
the conduct of nrlmarics. appeals
and contests. You have always
been extremely kind In giving me
the desired information, and I
will more than thank you for a
prompt reply to this letter.
Your fri?*nd,
EDW. P. TURMU'LL, JR.
Chairman Ellyson. as yet. has re?
ceived no minutes of the Fourth Dis?
trict meeting, which was held last
Monday night. His Information as
to that gathering is still what might
be called' unofficial.
As soon as the State chairman re?
ceives from Lawyer Turnbull a reply
to the telegram sent to Lawrencevllle
this morning, he will write him at
some length. Of course, however, Mr.
Ellyson cannot anticipate the com?
mittee's action or venture to predict
what will be the attitude of his as?
sociates as to the more ooubtful points
of the new law. But he will gladly
furnish Mr. Turnbull all the official
information at hand and do what he
can to facilitate the Congressman's
lawyers in their work.
Mr. Ellyson thinks Tuesday night
would be an excellent time for the
State committee meeting, as the fair
will then bo in progress and the city
will be o'oubly attractive to out-of
town people.
It may bo deduced from Lawyer
Turnbull's letter that his client will
desire the State committee to recount
the ballots cast In the primary of Sep?
tember 2l8t and compare them with
the poll books used by tho precinct
officials.
Some maintain, however, that the
committee will have no authority to
grant this request. Chairman Ellyson
does not venture an opinion on the
subject.

FAVORS (?KKMW SYSTKM.
'?The ape?? of tlu??lling is past In
this country. In Germany, for
instance, it Is a serious thing.
Frankly speaking, I wish duelling

I he same restrictions that ?jo\?th
duelling in the (?crnian army?
that Is to say. that before a chal?
lenge to a duel can be accept?*d
a military ?court, must examine
the case and decide as to its
mes Ha, and whether or not the
challenger has a just ?cause. If
n??t. they <lo not allow the ?luel
to take pla?*c. If, on the ?>th?*r
hand, the challenger has a just
canne, tin* dad must take plat*?*
or th?* challenged party is tlls
misscd from th?* army in disgrace.
I am highly in favor of such a
system as obtains in the German
army to<lay.
"But since no such code exists
in this country I w?>ul?l be mak?
ing myself ridiculous, as w?*ll as
laying mys?*lf open to arrest by

to criticise an <?!<! nnn,' but I
statt*?! at the same time that I
imputed lack of couraec t?> Colo?

Furthermore. I stated that if a
man Is a coward there is just as
much danger in attacking him
when he is old as there w?iuld be
in attacking him when he is In
I lie heyday and vigor of his
youth, because there is no more
?langer in attacking a young cow.
nrtl than an old one. Tt is noto
ri??us that a ?coward is not ?lan
gerous at all. If he was he would
not he a coward.
"Therefore, the fact that Colo?
nel Watterson is an elderly man
cuts no figure in this affair.
Moreover. I am no chicken my?
self, being fifty years old the 10th
of this month."
Mr. Chr.loner clos?*d with the
following parthinn shot: "Colo?

Mrs. W. B. Bowers.
RICHMOND. VA., Special.?
Mrs. W. B. Bowers, living at 109
West Clay Street, was awakened from
her slumbers and badly frightened
when she discovered a negro In her
bedroom about 10:30 o'clock last
night, according to a report made to
th? police today.
The terrified screams of Mrs.
Bowers scared the intruder away. It
is believed that the negro was bent
on robbery and that he was fright?
ened away by fear of capture before
he had time to execute his designs.
The unknown is described as being
a middle-aged, brown-skinned man,
with small features.
An examination of the premises
disclosed nothing missing.
An open window In the rear of the
house indicated that the negro here
effected an entrance.

SECRETARY OF STATE
SYRACUSE, N. Y. Special .-With the
nomination for Governor and Lieuten?

rapid work at its final session today.
Mitchell May, of Kings county, was
unanimously nominated for Secretary
of State to succeed Edward Lazansky,
the present Incumbent. ??
The greatest battleship fleet ever assembled in American waters will meet in North River this week to be
reviewed by Secretary of the Navy Von Meyer and possibly President Taft. The fleet will include thirty-one bat?

DEATH-BED STORY.
R I C H M O N DfV A., Special.?
Valuable diamond), left by John
Miller, who died last January, are to
be surrendered at once to his admin?
istrators instead of being ]?>ft in the
possession of Mrs. Elizabeth Graves,
Of tSl South Belvidere Street, accord?
ing to tho verdict of the Law and
Equity Court jury yesterday after?
noon, though Mrs. Graves claims that
the jewels were given to her by Mil?
ler a few hours befor?* he ?lied.
Miller, who had been connected
with the Richmond Sign Works, spent
tho last years of his life at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. Graves. In July,
1911, he was taken ill and gradually
became weaker until ho died six
months later.
Mrs. Graves claims that the day
before he died he called her to his
bedside and gave her the diamonds,
which are worth about $1,600. Her
husband, it was declared, witnessed
the donation, and regarded the pres?
ent to his wife as a death-bed gift.
Other witnesses testified that neith?
er Mr. Graves nor his wife had been
in Miller's room the day preceding
his death, and stated that to their
certain knowledge the dying man had
not given the diamonds away.
Following the announcement of the
jury's verdict the usual motion to set
aside was made. Judge Beverly Crump
reversed decision, but will probably
announce his ruling within the next
day or two.
CONVENTION WILL
DE "UNDOSSED"
SYRACUSE, J. Y.? S_-edaL?
Progressive Deiimcrats were ju?
bilant over ?be nomination
of Congressman William Sulzer
for ?Governor, and predicted a
sweeping victory over the Re?
publican and 11-ogresslve tickets,
lieaded by Job E. Hedges and Os?
car S. Straus, respectively.
They declared th?* nomination
of Sulzer for Governor and Mar?
tin II. (?lynii for LicuU'iiant Gov?
ernor showed the convention to
be "unbossed."
After nominating Sulzer and
Glynn the State convention ad?
journed at 1:29 A. M. to recon?
vene at 10 A. M. to complete the
ticket.
It was understood that all the
present holders of the lesser of
fices would be renominatcd. Sul?
zer was chosen on the fourth bal?
lot at 1:20 A. M. by practically
a unanimous vote.
He won out after Governor
John A. Dix had had his name
withdrawn. Congressman Sulzer
said today:
'?Well, it was a long wait, but
It was worth waiting for. I am
deeply sensible of the honor con?
ferred on me by the Democracy
of New York. I thank the dele?
gates, and through them all my
friends and the Democrats of my
State. I shall carry the standard
ever conscious that it is not for
mortal to command success, but
I shall strive to deserve it. I am
full of gratitude/'
That the delegates and not a
boss ruled in making the nomi?
nation of William Sulzer and
Glynn was the statement made
by Charles F. Murphy, of Tam?
many Hall.
He said: "I had a candidate
when I came here. My candidate
was John A. Dix. I was of the
opinion that Governor Dix. on his
record, should have been renom?
inatcd. The delegat<*s to this con?
vention thought differently. Every
delegate registered his choice.
Outside of my opinion that Gov?
ernor Dix was entitled to renom?
ination I have not advocated or
d?*precated the candidacy of any
man whose name was presented
to the convention or any man
whose name was presented to me
and did not reach the conven?
tion."
