WILLIA* J. BllYAN,
OF NKHKA-K \.
POK VICR-1'KKSIPKN l .
ADLAI E. STEVENSON.
MR. CHINNS U.\l r
We give space to-day to a commu
nicationfrom oneMr. Wni. Y. China,
of Litwalton, and here make edito
rial reterence and answer to it. The
Citizkx, asis the case with all other
papers, could not begin to notice edi
torially all communications or querits
from correspondents; but in this in
stance it affords us nuich pleasnre to
ia given to be set up in cold type, for
several reasons-r-among them: The
commnnication presents a llow of
intricate and aomewhat obeolete
rhetoric which it would be a pity to
lo8e in this prosaic age; the enviroti
nients of the writer are such as occa
aionally tend to produce a confound
ir.g of uuderstandingof what isfound
in the columnsof this paper, some of
hia associates havingeyes that see not
and eara that hear not aright the
thinga which may cotne out of this
Nazareth: and, again it afforda us an
opportunity aa Demoerat to Deeno
crat to con verse aecretly, as he desirea,
of thoae things whieh should not be
spoken of openly.
Keally, if the writer haa the
good of the party at heart and is the
earneat Demoerat he essays to be be
ahould notwant (as heevidetitly hopes
will be the caae) an argument utar
onistic to free silver at "1<", to 1."
This he can not get from us either
openly or aecretly, aa it is our faith,
and haa been for some years. So
there is no entieing our pea to aay
what our mouth has not.
If our correspondent had been a
cloae reader of the Citizkn even his
eagerneaa to get into print could not
have induced him to assert that we
condemned "1G to 1"?or free silver
on a parity with gold at a ratio of 16
to 1. There haa not been a word or
a line in these columns to support
such an assertion, and to make sueh
an iusiuuation is to jnggle with the
trnth. We have no retlectious on the
8ubject of free silver younger than
foar yeara of age. We stand where
we 8tood four years ago; there haa
been no opportunity for gaining
knowledge on aomething that ia not.
Mr. Bryan himself ia no wiser than
he waa four years ago and has ad
vanced no new ideas on that line. If
this is what .Mr. Chinn eiiphon-'eally
8tylea"revolved on theaxia of thought
nutil the wheel aqueaks" it is the
fortunes of politics and not the
lhegrounds, however, upon which
Mr. Chinn baaes his dissertation are
not there, because, as we bavi stated,
no word or line of ours can be con
strued into enmity of the party's
policy. Theonly shadow of excuse
he has is found la the fact that the
. Omm opposed the tnaking of "1G
tol"a party issue this year and in
jecting it into the party plat?
form. We were among the first to
publicly plead this and we stuck
"everlastingly" at it until Mr.
Hryan decreed otherwise and it
was incorporated in the platform.
As loyal Detnocrats we accept t he
result a/id are supporting every splin
ter in that document. We may be
pardoned for digressing a little
to remind onr correspondent that had
hiafriends as loyal ly supported the
Conatitntional Conventioi) plank in
the Norfolk platform Litwalton and
aome other parts of the county would
not have ao mieerably repudiated the
product of a unanimous Democratie
convention. Not so with the Cmzvs
?when once a tnajority, or the
party speaks, it acouiescea and goes

to drop the words "16 to 1," the
Fredericksburg papera took it up and
aome of the Kaetern Shore papcrs got
into the same line. Strange, wasn't
it, that Senator Daui.l and Scnator
Martin and (Jovernor Tyler and Con
gre88inan Jones and the twenty other
delegates from Yirginia tried to keep
4,1?; to 1*' out of the platform at

M DCH ADO ABOUT NOTH1NO.
For some days a great inany of
our eitizens have been disturbed over
tlu smallpox scare and some business
enterprises are being crippled.
While it is to be deplored that there
are any directly affected by this con
dition we can see no sensible reason
for a continuancfc of it. A re
view of the attending circutnstanees
should reassure all strong-minded
peopli Md these should bolster the
Some weeksago Ilev. W. L. Ware.
Of Whealton, visited Amherst county
where, it is said, there are several
caaee of smallpox. Shortly after his
return he was taken sick, but the
eruptions in his trouble were so faint
and his sickness so short that his
pbysician did not consider his case
smallpox. After convalescing he at
tended White Stonc District Con
ference, two weeks ?go, upon his
physician'a statement, as we learn,
tbat his case was not smallpox.
(Vrtainly under these circumstances
it is unjustto cansure Mr. Ware or
Capt W. 1*. Mnllen, who accom
panied him. I'lifortunately Capt.
Mnllen had been an inmate of Mr.
Ware's house during the period of
his siekneas; so while at Conference,
?md ? guest of Capt. J. F. liellows,
Capt. Mallaa was taken down. His
has been a well-de?eloped case of
smallpox, though the patient is now
convalesciug. Itnmediately upon Mr.
Mullen's being taken sick Dr. W. J.
Newbill, of the Ilealth lioard, quar
autined the house of Capt. liellows,
and aleo isolated Capt. liellows
himself, who, at the time, was ncar
his factory. Thua the situation
stands. No other caaes have broken
ottt and it is not probable that any
more will, unless it be within the
[darantined houseof Capt. liellowaor
in the?iuarantines in the vicinity of
Whealton. Many people have been
scared out of their wits because they
saw Capt. Mullen before being sick,
or M r. Ware after getting well. This
ia "borrowing trouble" with a ven
geance. The period has about passed
for it to Tiave developed if taken
from contact with these gentlemen.
We think that our people would
display the part of wiadom to take
less concem over thia matter and not
let it dtsturb their social or business
arrangemeuts. There is more danger
to our county and people everv week
of the year than has been occasioned
by the present trouble. Strangers
comingamong nS frequently come
from cities afifected with smallpox,
and a viait to Norfolk, lialtimore or
any other large city means that you
are walking into the infection. Yery
properly we have never given this
any concem, aud no deleterious
results have been seen. Why should
we, then, make such an ado over a
couple of cases which are thoroughly
isolated, under good attention and
occurring during thehottest period of

A Glorious Meeting and the Fruils
of Foriner Years are Seen.
On last Sundav Kirkland Grava.
aear Ueatlurriile, Nnfthnaaberlaad
county, closed after one of ita inost
glorions and successful meetings,
especially from a rehgions point of
view, there being fully sixty-live
conversions during the ten days en
oaaapaaeat All eeeaaed to eajoy
themselvesand were loth to leave the
beauliful grounds aud txcellent
preaohing, but on Sunduy night the
vast assemblage realized that the
j time had conie to say good-bje.
j linmediately after evening services
; the teatora began moving out and by
Ifoaday noon not a soul could be
foaad on those grounds, which the
day before had beea crowded with
more than a thousand.
The religious sertices were utuler
thecontrolof Kev. (i. \\. Benfc, of
Heathsville, and Bev. J. J. Wicker,
of Baltimore, and ably assisted by
Kev. Walter Uhodes, of Modesttown,
"7a, Kov. Frank Bundick, of I'hila
delphia, Bev. W. C. Blaekburn, of
Baltimore, and Beva. Kichard Kd
aarda, A. D. lieynolds, Ko. William
son, K. U K. Tune, C. S. Armtt
and W. (i. llammond, of the North
ern Necjj of Virginia. Tlnse gen
tlemen did excellent preaching and
the G5 aoula saved ia but aa index of
the good work accompliahed.
The attendance was not quite as
hirge as in former years, but when
we take into conaideration the heavy
roads and exceedingly warm weather,
it was better than heretofore. Nearlv
all of the tents were occupied and the
hotela, confectionery atanda and
boraa tota were well patronized.
Yes, Kirkland has closed and the
sweet atraina of music, the buatle of
waiters, the elucidation of tiod'a
word, the meetingof frienda and the
formation of new friendahips have all ,
iceased for a twelve-month among
