A FAIR ELECTION LAW.
It is now admitted by all honest men in
Virginia, no matter to what political party
they belong, that the present election law
is iniquitous and demoralizing. Even
some of those politicians in the eastern
part of the State who have profited by its
opportunities for frauds are beginning to
find fault with its operations. They claim
that bribery in elections has increased to
such an extent that it means financial ruin
to the man who becomes a candidate for
office, and destruction to the moral sense
of the voter?witness the recent utterances
of Senator Barkesdale, of Halifax county.
There is no doubt that bribery of voters
in Virginia has been largely increasing in
the past few years. It is a common
thing to hear of men who a few years ago
would have considered it an insult to be
offered money for their votes now not only
receiving but actually soliciting compen!
sation for their suffrage. Such a radica
change in the moral tone of a number of
our citizens could not have been produced
by anything but a radical cause; and that
cause we believe has been and is the
Democratic election laws, made to perpet?
uate the power of the Democratic party.
The whole spirit and motive of the present
election laws of our Commonwealth are so
suggestive of fraud that a knowledge of
their provisions tends to make the vctere
indifferent to honesty. They can see that
the plan and purpose of those who made
the law and those who use it was and is to
manipulate the elections in their own
in'erest, without any regard for honesty.
Under the pretext that the law was made
to control the negro vote in the eastern
part of the State it has been made to apply
with equal force to the white districts.
Is it strange, then, that voters have be?
come mercenary? When they are con
vinced that ballot thievine has been cre?
ated and sanctioned by legislative enact?
ment, and, incidentally, by judicial con
Btruction, is it any wonder that they begii:
t ?seil their votes for a price? They argue
that it is no more immoral for them to eel
their votes than it is for the sworn officen
of elections to cheat. Thoee who purchase
votes justify on the same theory.
A fair, honest election law, which would
prevent cheating at the ballot would dc
more to stop bribery of individual voten
than anything else that can be done. The
necessity for "fighting the devil with fire'
would be removed, and men would not be
so willing to sell when they were voting
under the provisions of a law that is honeel
and that is honestly administered. A few
more years of the Walton election law wil!
almost destroy the moral tone of the peo?
ple of Virginia. Our safety as a people
demands reformation. The only refor?
mation which will prove effective will be
the enactment of an election law which
w ill preclude any possibility of cheating
the voter, and thereby remove the oppor?
tunity or desire on his part to Bell. The
law should be such as to enable each voter
to select and prepare his own ballot with?
out the assistance of any person, and in
such a private way that no personal in?
fluence could operate upon him in its
preparation. The ignorant voter would
then know that he was accorded an equal
privilege with the more intelligent voters,
and would place a higher value on his
suffrage than he does under a law wLich
places his ballot at the mercy of tricksters
When we have a law which will give every
man a fair ballot and an honest count we
will see bribery in elections an unknown
quantity in Virginia. Under the present
election law briberey is the natural se?
quence of the other vices created by the
operations of that law.
Admiral Dkwey has not developed into
an anti expansionist since his return to the
United States.as was predicted by some of
The Washington Star says Henry Wat
terson is "the most eminent Republican in
the Democratic party." There are many
who think him the most sensible man in
the Democratic party.
Thk South is prospering in spite of its
political leaders. Fortunately for our
section other sections of the Union out?
line and create the national policy. If the
views of the Southern political leaders
were adopted ruin would come to the in?
dustrial interests of our section as well as
to every part of the Union.
THE PARTY COLLAR.
When General William Mahone was boss
of the dominant political party in Virginia
it was con tern ptiously eaid that every one
of his followers wore the Mahone collar.
Some of them wore it willingly and frankly
admitted that they were proud of it, and
regarded it as a badge of honor. Others
chafed abjut the neck, and were disposed
to snarl and bite when twitted with their
bondage by those of the opposite party.
Many of these latter finally asserted their
manhood and tore the collar off, refusing
longer to be the political slavesof the great
In time the Mahone regime came to an
end and all Virginia breathed freer. We
congratulated ourselves that the day of
political bossiin in this old Commonwealth
was past, and that the political collar had
been broKen and buried. But let us not
deceive ourselves. That old Mahone
collar has been resurrected and reforged,
and it is as strong to-day as ever it was in
the days of Mahone. Virginians in all
parts ol this free State are wearing that
collar about their neck. Some of them
wear it willingly?God 6ave the mark
others wear it unwillingly, but they cannot
get it off. The collar fits so closely and is
so strong that it can only be removed by
We are not trying to be funny. We are
not joking. We are telling a sad and
serious truth. Tiiere are thousands of
party men in Virginia to day who have
got the machine collar around their necks.
It is fastened and locked and the machine
has the key. The machine's name is en
grayed on the collar, and I the men whe
wear that collar are the slaves of the
machine. They will not admit that
it is true, but they know it is true, and
they are, some of them, we hope, ashamed
But for that matter there is hardly a
man in Virginia who has not in days past
worn the collar of the Democratic party.
Many of us did not like it, but conditions
were such that Democrats were compelled
to stand together, whatever the cost. We
wore it as gracefully as we could, and
made the best of it. But some of us have
pulled our heads out of the collar, how?
ever great the strain on the vertebral may
have been, and so help us, Freedom, we
will never wear it again. Liberty is sweet.
We congratulate the Times upon its
earnest declaration of freedom, and hope
it will not be frightened by any imaginary
conditions to again become a wearer of the
The editor of this paper was one of those
who revolted against Mahone's mothods,
but. we say, without fear of contradiction,
that Mahoneism was never half as bad as
Martinism. Mahone was arbitrary and
impractical, but he and his followers never
commited crimes again=t the b.dlot box.
If General Mahone had ever advocated
such methods as have been employed by
the Martin machine against both Kepuli
can8 and Democrats, we honestly believe
that the most of those who stuck to the
little General until the last would have
deserted him in disgust. The Democratic
party has been made triumphant in Vir
: ginia by the frauduleut and violent meth?
ods of the machine leaders. Its corrup?
tion and dishonesty have been tolerated
by iionest men in the party, because they
were scared into the belief that there wat
danger of negro domination. Fleeing
from an imaginary evil, they have placed
themselves in slavery to the most viciom
political organization that has ever dis
1 graced any civilized ccantry.
We are glad to see that the Timee hai
' cast aside the shackles, and hope thai
' there are many in Virginia who will follow
' its example.
We are heartily opposed to bossism, ant
' hate corruption in politics. We despist
' them when they exist in our^own party

BRYAN HEARS M'KINLEY.
Out at Canton, 111., on the (Ith inst,
Mr. Bryan had the pleasure of listening tc
a brief address made by President Mc
Kinley. A street fair was being held ami
Mr. Bryan had been secured to deliver n
two hours address. President McKinley
arrived and Mr. Bryan was among the
first to greet h m fs he left the train. The
Nebraskan sat directly behind the Presi?
dent while be spoke. Mr. McKinley said:
"Our glorious old Hag, the symbol of
liberty, floate to-day over two hemis?
pheres. During the recent war we had
exhibitions of unprecedented patriotism
on the part of the people and unmatched
heroism on the part of our soldiers and
"Our second great triumph is the tri?
umph of prosperity. The busy in ills, the
active industries, the general prosperity,
have scattered plenty o'er a smiling
"Our third great triumph is the triumph
we have had over sectionalism. We are
no longer a divided people, and who stirs
up animosities between the North and
South is denied a hearing in both sections.
The boys of the North and the boys of the
South fought triumphantly on land and
sea in every engagement during the war.
"So I conclude by saying that this na?
tion has been greatly blessed, and at this
hour we are a united and prosperous and
patriotic people. And m ay that Divine
Providence who has guided us in all of
our undertakings from the inception of the
government, continue His gracious and
assuring favor to us forevermore."
When the President concluded he
heartily grasped Mr. Bryan's outetreched
hand, and goodbyes were exchanged be?
tween the two men who bad lead opposing
forces in the great battle of 1896, the men
who are likely to lead the same forces in
The four paragraphs above, spoken by
the President, were a contradiction of
Bryan's theories of 1896 and of the pol?
icies he is now advocating.

UTILIZING THE DEAD.
The Goebelites in Kentucky are becom?
ing very proficient manipulators under
their new election law, which is boasted
to have been copied from the Virginia
law. They recognize that all the sciences
are progressive, and they do not intend
to be left in the rear in their efforts to
make election frauds, which are now the
leading science at the South, keep pace
with the onward movement in all other
branches. So, we find them invoking even
the assistance of the dead to execute, their
plans and effect their fraudulent purposes.
On the 28th ult., a dispatch from Lexing?
ton, Ky., to the Evening Post, at Loui6
"The Goebelites, it has just been learn?
ed, in appointing oflicers to hold a school
board election, have appointed John .Man
pin, who has been dead for six months or
more. "This action of theiGoebel machine
is both serious and amusing. Serious be?
cause it shows the reckless use to which
the machine will avail itself of the infa?
mous election law that was modeled after
the Virginia law. Amusing, because of
the ridiculous position in which the ma?
chine has been placed by having its efforts
to invoke the assistance of the dead ex?
When we stop to reflect upon the inci?
dent, however, we should not be sur?
prised at its occurrence in Kentucky.
The Kentucky machine is evidently trying
to pattern after the Democratic machine
in Virginia, and the latter has in more
than one instance, perhaps in a thousand,
utilized the dead for fraudulent ends.
One recent, notable instance was that at
Bristol in the Congressional election last
year, where Khea's "dead agents" voted
four dead men, one of them a poor, igno-.
rant negro, w ho had been dead for more
than a year. It may be that Kentucky
has been educating pupils at a Virginia
training school, and that under the in?
struction of Rhea,Stone and Cox they have
been taught how to vote dead men. Then,
it may be that after learning how to invest
departed spirits with the elective fran?
chise, they have been inspired with the
thought that it would be eminently proper
to have departed spirits so placed that
they could pass upoti the qualifications of
other departed spirits as electors.
The Kentucky machine has grasped the
idea of the "dead agent" of the Virginia
machine, and gone it one better. It may?
be that Khea has responded to the invita?
tion to take a part in Kentucky politic,
and that Stone and Cox have been with
him. Who knows?
IS IT INSPIRED?
Mr. Bryan was recently at Dallas, Texas,
where lie addressed an immense audience
of the new Democracy. He must have
made a profound impression upon part of
the audience, and especially upon one w ho
sent a poem to the Dallas "News," dedi?
cated "To the Lovers of Free Silvei."
The poet must have been inspired if we
. are to judge his effort by the grand
thoughts that are found in the poem.
i One verse is so etriking that it will certain?
ly immortalize the composer. It is as
s "God bless the man of patriot pen,
God bins the State of Texas!
Her noble sons will not be slaves.
From gold bugs, Lord, protect us."
Mr. Bryau should never make a speech
I (a thing he rarely does) without quoting
! the divine lines of the poet from Texas.
It is an unanswerable argument for free
' silver, like most of those offered by the
advocates of the white metal. Recited by
Mr. Bryan it would be as telling as his
crown of thorns or cross of gold.
There should be a good attendance of the
Republicans of Tazewell county at the
mass-meeting, called by their county
chairman, to meet at the court house next
Saturday. We trust there will be a large
An exchange says: "It is quite plain
that the McKinley men are badly fright?
ened." We have failed to see any evi?
dence of fright in the columns of those
journals that support the President; and
as for the masses of the people the only
fear that tbey can possibly feel oriehow is
that McKinley may, possibly, not live to
be the next President of the United States.
The Goebelites are getting in their first
licks moet successfully under their election
law which was copied from the Virginia
law. They are having a new registration
and are preventing the registration of 88
many Republicans as possible. They make
some excuse for not registering Republic?
ans when they apply, and in that way are
gaining largely on the new registration.
The Goebelites are learning rapidly from
their Virginia instructors.

DEWEY AND THE DEMOCRACY.
A Candid Democratic Criticism of
the Pretended Boom for the
Atlanta "Constitution" (Dem.).
As matters stand, he really belongs to
no party. If he were compelled by cir?
cumstances to make an avowal it is to be
presumed that he would declare for the
Khpublican party, not because he really
believes the principles of that party to be
worthy of all acceptation but because of
bis early associations and prejudices.
These things are haid to escape from.
They have a power over the human mind
that the most powerful and convincing
argument fails to shake.
On the other hand, if he were to accept
Mr. Whitney's invitation and become
the candidate of the Democratic party, we
should behold the curious spectacle of the
Republican organs, egged on by the Han?
nas, the Platts, the Dicks, and the Jerry
Simpsons of that organization, decrying
him as a traitor to his country, a Populist,
a mobocrat, an anarchist, and a diaorgan
izer, who, with a fiendialinese nnparal
lelled in history, was cnde'avoiing to array
labor agaiiiL-t capital and destroy the basis
and foundation of our social order.
Under the circumstances, it is easy to
perceive that Dewey's only enemies arc
those who are trying to drag htm out of a
position in which he is honored by the
whole people and make him the instrit
ment of one party and the target of the
other. The truth is (hat our great Admir?
al holds a position that may be said to be
unique in our history, a position that is
emphasized by those rare qualities w hich
marked his administration before political
influences could be brought to bear, and
which have characterized all his actions
and utterances since. There is no reason
why such a man should cheapen himself
or his reputation to please the whims of
Mr. Whitney's chief design is not to
honor Dewey but to defeat the nomina?

himself be nude the victim of it.

In the Matter of Advertising.
Whin the railroad ndvertising agents
met in Chicago the other day ami de?
liberately declared as the result of their
experience that the newspaper was the
best medium of advertising they simply
voiced the opinion of thousands of business
men all the world over.
And ypt not a day passes that some new
form of publicity is not brought before the
public. Some of these have merit and
accomplish their purpose, but (hey are
few in number and are of only temporary
worth. Nine-tenths of these advertising
schemes are absolutely worthless, and the
only persons who get a dollar out of it are
the origionators w ho are smait enough to
The reason why the newspapers are the
best mediums for reaching the people,
and securing business, is that they come
in closer touch with the public than any
other kind of publications.
When a man takes up his favorite paper
to lim! out w hat is going on in the great,
busy world about him, he cannot avoid
seeing the advertisements contained in it.
Whether he needs any of the articles ad?
vertised or not he is impressed by the
announcements and remembers them.
It is the persistency, if we may so call
it, of the newspaper that gives it value.
Every day it is new and must be read, and
every day the advertiser is making a direct
appeal to the reader for his patronage. It
is the constant dropping of water that
wears away the hardest stone.
