RENEGADES AND TRAITORS.
These are dangerous words when used
by the flippant talker or the shallow writer.
Tbey are words that are very popular with
the so-called Democratic speakers and
writers in Virginia. It has been their pol?
icy to apply them indi& i iminately to
those who have exercised the right of with?
drawing their support from the tenets of
the modern organization that calls itself
Democratic. They are used with all the
vice of political hypocrisy and a cheek
more hardened than brass. The name
"Democrat," in their opinion, is the syn?
onym of principle. No matter what a
man is for, if he calls himself a Democrat
he is true, and no matter how often the
Democratic party change it's position on
important national and state questions
euch shifting of policy is claimed to be
principle. These fellows call men rene?
gades when they leave 'he Democratic
party from honest conviction and pro?
claim others patriots and statesmen who
change their views with each campaign to
conform with the shifting policy of the
Democratic party. If men who were
formerly Democrats but are now Repub?
licans are amenable to the charge of being
renegades because they have deserted a
principle, then, every Bryanite in the
Ninth district is worthy to wear the badge
of renegade. Rut we will not say that be?
cause Democrats have chosen to change
their views on the financial question, or
other questions, that tbey are renegades
although faithlessness to principle is as true
definition of renegade as desertion of party.
Now, lets see if our Democratic friends in
the Ninth District have not been faithless
to principle. In 1S92 tbey ran Judge
Morrisson for Congress on a gold platform,
and in that platform eulogized Grover
Cleveland. In 1S96 they ran Judge Wil?
liams on an extreme free silver platform
and one that denounced Grover Cleve?
land. Judge Khea in 1892 was a warm
supporter of Morrisson and, we believe,
was a member of the committee that
framed the platform on which Morrisson
ran. Rhea was a gold man up to the i.ime
of the Staunton convention, perhaps later.
Now he is a rip-snorting free Biiverite,
Rryanite, with Populistic coloring. Was
lie a true Democrat when he was for Cleve?
land, Morrieson and sound money? If bo,
he is now a renegade, according to the
foolish assertions of some who call them?
selves Democrats, because he has aband?
oned the principles and men he supported
Better men than these modem Detno
ocrats have been called traitors and yet
been given the title of patriots in history.
Cromwell, Washington and Lee were pro?
nounced traitors, and today they are
looked upon as among the worthiest pa?
triots the world has produced.
The editor of the Clinch Valley News is
painfully facetious over what he calls our
painful Republicanism. Because we are
anxious to see the next House of Repre?
sentatives Republican and in sympathy
with the Administration in its war and
financial policies, the News would try to
make its readers believe that we would
prefer to see a Republican success in the
Ninth district next fall to victories won by
Schley and Sampson. Of course the News
does not believe what it says, and can
hardly be so obtuse as to think that any
sensible person will give credit to such an
intimation. Its purpose is transparently
thin. By far fetched ridicule it endeavors
to minimize our earnest effort to imprc-s
our readers with the importance of having
the next Congress in thorough aecord with
the President. We know of no worse
calamity that could befall the country than
to have our next national legislature con?
trolled by such men as Bailey, of Texas,
Allen, of Nebraska, and Butler, of North
Carolina?partisans who have hindered
and obstructed the Administration so per?
sistently that one would almost be justified
in concluding that they are willing to see
the war unsuccessfully prosecuted if they
can gain a party advantage.
We are under very great obugations to
the News for its gratuitous advice about
what it calls our fatal infatuation with
party ;but must confess that we are at a loss
to know upon what it bases it accusation
that the party "has done, things right
here in Tazewell, that any eelf respecting
party ought to be ^shamed of, and things
which many of its adherents are ashamed
of." If the party has done anything that
is so perficdious or immoral it has never
been brought to our knowledge, and in
the name of the Republicans of Tazewell
county we repel the insinuation with
There are many pessimists in our land
who affect to believe that we are deterio?
rating as a nation?that we are not as pa
triotic and heroic us the fathers who
founded the republic. But the acts of
heroism and daring that have already
been exhibited by our sailors and soldiers
in the war with Spain disprove most com?
pletely the adverse declarations of the
pessimists. Dewey and his men at Manila,
the young hero Bagley at Cardenas,
Rowan in his daring trip to the insurgent
camps iu Cuba and voyage from Cuba in
an open boat to Kingston show of what
heroic stuff American sailors and soldiers
are made. But these have been supple?
mented by the thrilling heroism displayed
by four thousand men at Santiago, who
volunteered their services when Admiral
Sampson called for eight men to perform
what was considered a forlorn hope or
act. No grander act of heroism has been
recorded in history, Ueutenaut Hobstn
and the seven brave fellows that were his
companions who escaped death an none
the less deserving of praise because they
were not killed. To carry out the plans of
Admiral Sampson and sink the Merrimac
in the narrow channel of Santiago harbor
was attended with dangen of the most ex?
traordinary character. They had to run
the Merrimac over the mines and through
a territic fire from the land batteries and
the thips of Cervera. The American ship
was riddled with Spanish shells, but Hob
son and his band of heroes pushed on and,
when they had swung their vessel into the
proper position, landed the anchor and
blew up the ship with an internal torpedo.
Their escape from death was truly marvel?
ous, but because they are alive thev are
none the less heroes.
Why is the delay in calling a Republi?
can convention in the Ninth district? We
are of the opinion that we should nomi?
nate our candidate for Congress early this
STORIES OF SAMPSON.
Readable Anecdotes of the Commander in
A writer in Leslie's Weekly save: Only
once in his naval career was Sampson
heard to usa an oath, and then the exple?
tive was called forth by an excess of the
emulation be had himself inspired among
his command, which was occasioning a
temporary disregard for orders. From the
first the captain had encouraged boat
racing, and the record made by both the
both the barge and the gig of the 'Fran?
cisco was exceptionally fine. Two of the
men who composed the crews which won
the prizes at the international regatta held
at Norfolk in 1S93 now lie buried beneath
the wreck of the Maine. One of the nu?
merous trial races which the captain en?
couraged was in progress off Mare Island
between the captain's gig and a boat be?
longing to the I'nited States steamer Alert,
when orders were received to bring thp
San Francisco into dock for cleaning. The
tide was strong and it was only by hard
pulling against it that the operation of
bringing the vessel in could be accom?
plished. In vain the captain reiterated
the orders to "Full in!" There ivas no
time to be lost, but excitement over the
lacewasata high pitch, and all hands
were leaning over the ship's rail, watching
and cheering the battle of oars. The im
i perturable captain's patience was at length
exhausted. "D-n it!" he exclaimed,
"the ship is athwart the tide and I cannot
get a man to pull or an otficer to give an
order." Just then a shout was borne to
his ears. "The Alert's boat is ahead!"
"What" exclaimed Sampson, his own
deep interest in the race, breaking through
hie iiritation at the prevalent lac* of dis?
cipline, "I don't believe it."
And when the joyous upplause on board
toid that the San Francisco again held the
palm of victory, the captain turned to bis
first lieutenant, saying, "I told you so; I
knew our men would win!"
Another incident which evidenced his
interest in these trials of speed occurred
while the San Francisco was stationed at
Ooquimbo Chili. The Fourth of July had
been celebrated by a regatta, and the crew
of Captain Sampson's gig had beaten the
English boatmen of Her Majesty's ships
Melpomene and Liffey. A few weeks af?
ter, the Garnet, another English vessel,
arrived and it was determined to "take the
Americans down" a little. The Garnet
carried a boat of superior equipment, built
in Melta for racing purposes, which had
never been beaten; but, as if to make the
victory more certain, the crew practiced
daily, and the challenge to the San Fran?
cisco was not extended until the very
morning before the English vessel was to
sail, thus leaving no time to practice to the
But the challenge was accepted, with
the stipulation that the race was to extend
as far as Pelicanos. Island, around it, and
back again to shore?a- distance of four
miles. After some hesitation the English
boat's crew agreed. On the afternoon of
the day of challenge Captain Sampson was
seated in his cabin when his coxswain en?
"Captain," he began, with deep earn?
estness, "do you want to win this race?"
"Why, certainly,"responded Sampson."
"Well, captain, one of my men is under
arrest. I have spoken to the first lieuten?
ant, and he says he can't be released."
"Thai being the case?the man a pris?
oner?I don't see what I can do for you,"
returned the captain, gravely.
"But I can't do without him," pleaded
the coxswain, with an insistence rarely
shown to a naval commander. "If you
don't let that man go, captain, the Eng?
lishmen will beat us!"
Sampson turned suddenly and touched
his bell; and, as his orderly entered, he
said, briefly: "Tell Lieutenant-that
I release the prisoner until this race is
won." And the race was won, for, al?
though the British racer looked extremely
formidable, and a ringing shout went up
from the Garnet at the splendid drill of the
rowers and their fine appearance in holi?
day attire, it was America's plain boat's
crew, in every day working garb, who,
dropping into position without a cheer of
admiration, waited silently till the signal
shot then did their utmost, struggled
through the rough water around the island
?roal and returned to the shore, leaving the
English racer far behind, even out of sight.

THE NEW SITUATION.
It Will be Productive of Enterprise,
New Aims and a More Rapid
Baltimore ?Sun" (Ind. Dem.]
The spirit of adventure and enterprise
is begining to chafe within the confines of
the. country and to recoil and overflow.
Its recoil is felt in the unrest and chimeras
which our recent polities have shown; its
oveiflow is felt in Mexico, South America
and China. Few of us realize how prodi?
gious and multiform this spirit is. It is
possibly one of the greatest social forces
the world has witnessed?more vast than
the mysterious impulses which impelled
the Teuton, ttie Hun and the Turk against
Europe. For nearly three centuries all of
the conditions here have nurtured and
stimulated it. Can it be checked by na?
tional boundary lines ?
Tho>-e who are inoculated with it and
swept on by it will probably lind aliies
even among the timid and conservative,
who, for self-protection, will advocate giv?
ing it vent. Coming when it did, the war
with Spain iseems to have awakened the
world and ourselves to the fact that the
I'nited States has entered on a new era.
We can but believe that the mission of
the I'nited Stales to the world will be, as
it has been, one of freedom, civilization
and progress. We had hoped that it
would work out this mission in peace and
by example, with now and then a helping
hand to a struggling people. Nor do we
yet despair of this consumation. But we
cannot conceal from ourselves the fact that
there are signs that America, alone or with
England, may, in the next century, be?
come the Rome of the modern world; may
we hope not merely a Kome of law and or?
der, but a Kome of freedom and brother?
Neither our hopes, our fenrs or our ef?
forts, however, am stay the march of
events. Race peculiarities, physical facts
and environment will continue, as they
have in the past, to impel and give direc?
tion to the nation's career. Thtse we can?
not dam by protest or placate by singing
the memories of our Arcadi.m days.
A. H. Patter, with E. C. Atkins & Co.,
Indianapolis, Ind., writes: "I have never

I will say that for three years we have
never been without Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy in the

The American Cossacks.
Philadelphia Press. |
It was a conceit of Napoleon Bonaparte
when be lay dying at St. Helena tnat in
llfty years Europe would be either repub?
lican or Cossack. The purport of the great
captain's prophecy was that before a had
century bad passed, free and representa?
tive government would prevail over Europe
or that continent would be ruled by des?
potism of which the Kussian Cossack is
Napoleon's prophecy did not come true,
out had he lived until to-day and witness?
ed some of the scenes now taking place in
the United States he might have errone?
ously conclude that the great Republic is
dominated by defendants of the Cossacks
who hung on the flanks of his army and
made his Russian campaign fo disastrous.
For the American Cossack is in evidence
A dispatch to the New York "Sun" from
New Orleans says that on Tuesday morn?
ing that city was treated to a sight of the
most picturesque troops that will tane part
in the war with Spain. They were the
Itoosevelt cowboy regiment made up of
cowboys, college men, Indian fighters,
foot ball players, bronco breakers and line
buckers from all over the country.
The cosmopolitan character and spirit of
the American people was never better rep?
resented than it is byjt his regiment. Cow?
boys touch elbows with the sons of Eastern
millionaires and men from the plains who
hardly know what a spelling book is
march tide by side with graduates of
Harvard and Yale. The despatch says:
"The rough riders are a line, strapping
set of fellows, bronzed and tanned by the
sun of the Western plains. Shaven faces
are few and the dirt of travel was in
plentiful evidence." Tennis champions,
men who have won honor for their colleges
on the athletic field, millionaires' sons
whose highest ambition in life until recent?
ly appeared to be to lead the cotillion in a
ballroom, and the bronco riders of the
plains whose life has been spent in the
"round up," were on their way to do
service on the field of battle to their coun?
try and humanity.
They come as near as it is possible to
come in this country to the Kussian
Cossacke, the terror of Europe, but actu?
ated by a different spirit. There is not a
man among them who is not there by his
own free will and he goes to tight for
freedom and not for despotism. That
these United States can in a few weeks
raise such a regiment is one of the most
convincing proofs of the stability of the
Republic. Taine said that the French
Revolution was the result of ttie over
refinement of the upper classes. This
Government will stand in no danger of
such a social convulsion soi long as the
rough rider of the plains the educated and
refined college man and the social leaders
from among the rich can "round up" in
the same regiment when their country
demands their service.

Special Navy Supplement.
The subject of our Navy is one which is
all-engrossing at the present time, and the
desire for accurate and reliable informa?
tion concerning our vessels has induced
the Scientific American to publish a Spe?

lustrations. Every effort has been made
to explain what the Navy is. Compari?
sons have been drawn, not only between
the various types of vessels, but also be?
tween vessels of the same class. The de?
scriptions are couched in untechnical lan?
guage, and after a careful reading of this
number any one can discuss the merits of
the various vessel- very much as he would
talk of the good and bad points of a horse.
The clear diagrams showing the differences
between these modern fighting machines
render analyses of this kind easy. It is
beautifully illustrated by half-tone engrav?

turrets, conning towers, steering appara?

Its Development Since Its First In.
When the plant was introduced, about
1840, it was only the small daisy-like
fiovfer, now only seen as a rule in cot?
tage gardens, which was highly prized
as a novelty. The taste for growing
and showing it began early, and before
1SC0 there were many chrysanthemum
societies in existence, among them the
Stoke Ncwington, which formed the
nucleus of the National society. Yet it
was not until 1S39, when the plants suf?
fered severely from early frosts, that
there was any idea of growing them
under glass. The Japanese variety was
noticed in 1SG4 as a novelty, "very curi?
ous and interesting, but scarcely orna?
mental." How little did the author of
these remarks suspect that a future was
before the plant he so summarily set
aside! Three years later, however, we
find Japanese varieties recommended
with pompom and incurved, and since
then they have increased in favor, says
The gorgeously colored mop-like
blooms now exhibited every autumn
would certainly astonish that writer
of 30 years ago. The golden and bronze
shades of the chrysanthemum suited
the taste of the promoters of the "high

ago, which, if it had no other merit,
