It does not take a secr to discern
that the time is drowiog ooor when
a yital change will he inade in the
preeent status of the Virginia ojatar
iudustry. The cry of "wolf"" has
been heard so often from politicians
that there is some excuse for th.
oyatermen ih refusing to believe that
the day wili eyer come when the
privileges which they enjoy will le
taken from them. But when this
end is reached the tongmen must
blame themselves as much as anyone
else. The writer of this has wutehed
their interests and the oyster iudus?
try for many years and does not
he^itate to declare that the lack of
harmony and concert of action on
the part of the tongmen is one of tbe
causcs which will eventually result
in depriving them of the rights which.
they have hitherto enjoyed. Anotlu r
potent cause will be found in the
unsati8faetory munuer in which they
have paid the license tax?if it mav
be so termed.
Every year has soen the stakes
encroaching more and more upon tbo
natuml rocks. Fvery two years has
*een the halls of the State UfJaOB
ture besieged by persons asking con
cessions, some of them being Vir
ginians,others non-residenls. Agaiust
this the oyatermen have olTered but
feeble resistance. because there was
iack of concerted action, and virtually
only the represeutatives of Tidewater
(letss than a fifth of the whole) have
been left to battle for tlnir rights.
During the term of the Legisluture
which has just closed the wedge tliat
will finally open the whole was
entereu. IVrmission was given
planters to dredge their grouuds with
thecousentof the Board of Fisheries.
This was one atroke; nnoth. r was
thata surveyor may he employed hv
the Board to survey contest.d
grounds. The decision of this sur?
veyor and the decision of the Rcard
will most probahly be aeccpted as
linal ta the courts. We do not say
that the latter provision was a bad
one; certainly it cannot work harm
aolong as the members of the Board
are fair-minded men and kaio all of
the varied water iuterests eqaallf at
heart. But how about the matter if
pertisan members shonld be selected!-'
Mauy have experiene. d the hauefui
r. suits which ha\e ooeajrred from
the occasional appointnicnt of biased
or dishonest inspectors. The same
will opply, and to a largei and more
disastrousdegree, if the Board shonld
at auy time become corrupt. So
while there may he no immediate
dangeron this line there ispossibility
of danger in the future.
We have seen the dangers ahead
of the industry for sometime but us
we had noremedy to offeriu the past,
or even now, it is with hesitaucy that
the matter is alluded to. But we
cannot longer refrain from warning
our people, probably for the last time,
what ia in store for them. We see
oo remedy, we see no help in the
uaual order of things. Two years
will hardly pass, in our opinion,
before the wedge, which has already
been staited, will he well on the ?BJ
to its final mission, and it will he
but a matter of a few more years
Defore the seam will cease to be
only a crack and become fu 1 ly opeaed.
When that time comes there will ba
a scramble-"ilka mon for hi'self
and the de'il take the hi'most."
We do not censure those who ac
quire shores in the legitimate way.
It is but natural that they should
want a good thing while it is gomg.
aud if ithas the sanctionof law thev
are not only legally protected but are
exercising a right for which they
cannot be blamed. Were it in our
lineof business we should undoubted
ly use every legitimate means to
acquire shore. And that is just
what many of those who now have
none and who look with horror npon I
ataking-in ground will do when the
scramble comes. And their actions !
will be perfectly justiliable when the
conditions warraut. In that day th<
condition of the masaes will be
deplbrable, while thoae who have
been fortunate enough to provide
againsttheevil day will be fortunate.
We dread to see tba day came, but,
in our judgment, come it will. We
hare shown where the tongmen are
at fault, so it behoovos them to make
atrenuoueefforts to ward off impend-|

Newa comes from the West that
tWO new varieties of bugs have put
10 their appearance in swarms. one
apootooao of which is traveling oaot*
ward. He is called the bicycle bug.
This audacioua pest takes his posi
tion on the inner rim of a btejeJc
whovl, and as the wheelmau spins
over the veldt hesilently, a la JerOBJ
gallimpper, inserts his' needle like
beok into the succulent rubber and
? whiff! the tire collapses, and bil
bugship is hlown otT to wing his way
to another victim. Like some hOBBOa
heings he is all gas, or wind, aud his
eiTu8ions are soon made sulphurous
by the anathemoa of the rider. This
fellow is a hermit, or bachelor hug;
he travels alone.
Another kinsman, who isaveritable
erustacean, has appeared in western
I Vnnsylvania, and is styied Cleopatra
Conventionalis or Convention llug.
Like the Knglish eparrow, whois his
fneiid in that he has entei tninated
the featheied enemies of bugs, this
big beetle goes 10 swurms and at
taeks large gatheriugs of peoplr,
heuce his name. We are told by the
papers that fcbfa genus humbug has
broken up several cump meetings of
late iu western iVnnsvlvania, and
that now he is on his way to Kansas
Oitj, aud piobably has arrived there
by this time, though reports of his
advent are tardy in reaching the
F]ast, unless he is included in the
dispatches with some of the human
humbiigs who iofoot politieul 000
ventions. Pity it is that it was too
early in the scaaon for him to have
visited the Philudelphia convention,
but mayhe, after all, he originuted

done to check them life will soon

tnation of fruits and crops has in
oreased greatly in lalior and expcnse,
Bad in some sections certain fruits
can not now be grown at all. This
brings us back to our hobby?the
extermination of the English spar
row. We believe that the greatcr
part of the evil is due to his rapid
ituteise. Oue thing is snre, he has
driven the blue bird out of the
lottntry. Every farmer of recent
years can recall the time when whole
Hocks of thia little bird were to be

thither and ending the existence of
uiynads of insecte. The aparrow

where is the twitteriug blue bird?

awakea feeliuga of regret among the
Aoierican people and among the
"Jackiea" of all natiou. who dearly
love a good ship that has doue what
would be termed a heroic deed if the
thiug were a human being. The
great interest being taken in the
Nicaragua canai project is due more
to the wonderful and unequalled
trip which this staunch hattleship
naade from the Pacific, around the
Horn and up to the West Indies,
when Cervera's fleet was supposed to
be threatening our coast. All are
hoping that her injuries may be
alight. While the Navy Department
exonerates Capt. Wilde in grounding
the noble ship on treacherous China

it is not her fornier gallant Captain
Cook who haa met with the mis
BOMl enthusiasts and would-be
l?hiianthropists are seeking to defeat
tne eaaa of justije in the Gilligan
case by raiaing funds to give the cou

nattires or from thoae who look
lightly upon crimes instigated by
lovc. oTo inatter what part Miss
Turuer may have played in the af- I
fair?or even if she incited Gilligan
on to the crime, of which there is
not the slightest proof?Cilligan is
a self-confessed murderer, receiving
ao provocation from his victim. Hrl
