HALIFAX JURY DID
EXCELLENT WORK
HOUSTON. , VA., Special.?The
grand jury which had been In session
for the past two weeks, making Inves?
tigation of the tax assessments for the
county, concluded their labors, filed re?
port and adjourned.
The Increase on merchant purchases,
to be added to old assessment, was as?
certained to be $328.406. The Jury
found bonds and money not listed to
the amount of $85.400, and incomes
not reported $18,500. making a grand
total of $42<>.300 to be added to the as?
sessments.
In its report the Jury said: "Wo
would further report that the house?
hold and kitchen furniture as Usted by i
the commissioners is perhaps valued at
far less than one-half its cash value,
and we believe, as a whole, that the
commissioners have been very slack
and neglectful of their duty whereby
all of their shortage has been report?
ed."
The court entered an order that the
report be certified to the commission?
ers of the revenue for the county, and
they are directed to make up from
this report a supplemental assessment
on the bocks prepared and furnished
the clerk by the Auditor of Public Ac?
counts for that purpose and return and
file same as required by lew.

MARTIN LIKELY TO
REMAIN LEADER
BALTIMORE. HO., Special.?The
Sun's Washington bureau sends the
following story:
The shadow which has hovered over
the aOenioc-rats of the Senate, threaten?
ing dissension and perhaps disorgani?
sation after March ?Uh. seems to have ,
lifted.
Instead of factional fights between
the progressives and the conservatives
over the floor leadership or the chair- !
mar-ship of this committee or that a
set-together spirit l*?ts come o\^r the
Democrats and a determination reach- ;
ed to work In harmony for a legislative
program that will tfe creditable to the
party as a whols.
It is yet possible.SDf course, that one
or two instances of bad feeling may
arise among members who do not get
what they think they are entitled to
in committee assignments, but the
movement to oppose the election of
? Senator Martin, for Instance, as floor
leader and Senator Simmons as Fi?
nance Committee chairman has been
abandoned.
The progressive Democrats have not
given up without a return, and this re?
turn will come in the form of important
committee work. The conservatives
who happen to be now at the top of a
number of committees by reason of
seniority will give up. some of their im
> portant committee seats in favor of the
new members snd the younger Sena?
tors,
As (he matter now stands, following
innumerable cloak room conferences,
the older Senators are prepared to con?
tent themselves with one important
chairmanship apiece. They will also
take a few second or third rate com?
mittee appointments and not seek re?
election to all the important commit
te-*"?? upon which they happen to be at
this time.
This self-effacement on the part of
the elders will give the younger Sena
tOMua chance to get seats on the big
corWr^lttees and to have an active part
in shaping the Important legislation
that is to signalize the Wilson adminis?
tration.
This compromise will. It Is now be?
lieved, result in the re-election of Sen?
ator Martin, of Virginia, as caucus
chairman and therefore as Democratic
floortfppader. It will give Senator Sim?
mons the chairmanship of the Finance
Committee, but no seat on any other
big committee. It will give Senator
Tillman the chairmanship of the Com?
merce or the Naval Affairs Committee,
and If he takes the former It will give
Senat- r Smith, of Maryland, the Naval
Affairs chairmanship.
The plan has been worked out In the
Interest of party harmony and to pre?
vent factional fights at the outset of the
new administration. As far as could
be learned it has the approval of prac?
tically all the Democrats now In Wash?
ington who will sit in the new Senate,
To make It effective It is only ne
sary, therefore, to gain the assent or
the new Senators who will come In
from private life on March 4th.
DEMOCRATS WILL
EIGHT EOR TOGA
WASHINGTON. D. C, Special-?In?
formal!?-- ashington Thurs
ratic sources in West
Virginia to the effect that the Demo?
crats In the State Legislature are plan?
ning to retaliate upon the Republicans
for what happened two years ago and
prevent, if possible, the election of a
Republican United States Senator as
the success?-*?* to Senator Clarence W.
Watson, wnoee term expires next
month.
In the winter of 1910-11, when the
State Senate was tied between the two
parties, the Republicans. It will be re?
membered, left the State?many going
to Cincinnati?and refused to partici?
pate in the organization of that body
until the Democrats made important
concessions to them. The Republicans
the presidency of the Senate.
Dr. Hatfield, the present . Governor
:, having been chosen for that of
flce before they permitted the .Legisla?
ture to proceed to the election, on joint
ballot, of both Senators Chtlton and
Wats?*??.
Now the Republicans have control
of the house, though by a smaller ma?
jority than th?? Democrats had two
\ earl ago, with the Senate again tied.
It is proposed that the Democratic
itors absent themselves in the man?
ner in which the Republicans did two
years ago and thus prevent the Senate
from being organized except upon con?
ditions favorable to the Democrats.
How far this project has progressed
was not revealed In the advices from
West Virginia, but that it is well under
way seems to be substantially correct.
Information of even more disquiet?
ing nature to the Republicans is that
the 'Democrats are seriously consid?
ering?if they have not already vir?
tually decided upon?the advisability
of not presenting a caucus nominee
lor United States senator when the
Senatorial election comes up. Know?
ing that It would be impossible to
elect a Democratic successor to Sena?
tor Wafton, and that they could
achieve more practical results than
by giving some member of their party
the empty honor of a complimentary
minority vote, they propose to use
their voting, strength in such a way
as to deadlock the Legislature and
. r?vent the election of a Republican
this winter.
With this double-barreled k. neme
on foot, they are confident they will
: rasa the Republicans
for quite a while, and they hope to be
tlon of a United
>r for two years. Then,
eleetloh, they will try
to i. utrol of the Assembly and
itlc ?Successor to Mr.
.on. The multiplicity of Republi
iidates for Watson's toga is
one of the instruments by which
Democrats hope to accomplish this
purpose
Moreover, the presence "of a pro
sive element among the Ropubli-?
I can? may be the means of furthering
the Democratic project, inasmuch as
the Progressives are not expected to
j work in entire accord at all times with
tthe? Republican regulars.
Up to this time. Davis Elkins, eon
of the late Senator Stephen E. Elkins,
seems to be well in the lead of other
Republican senatorial aspirants, and
he professes confidence in the success?
ful outcome of his campaign. But it!
does not require much imagination to'
see that with a Republican margin of,
only 20 or 21 on joint ballot, the.?
Democrats. by throwing their strength j
to Mr. Elkins' competitors either solid-]
ly or m fractions, might deadlock
the Assembly and prevent the election
of a senator Indefinitely. The situa-,
tion presents most interesting possi?
bilities, and developments are looked
for at frequent Intervals during the
winter.
