RELIGIOUS PAPER AGREES WITH
[Reliirioua Hermld. April M. I
It seems necessary every now and
then to remind our political and other
leaderstnour fair and beautiful city
that Richmond is not Virginia. We
yield to no one in our admiration for
our great historic capital. We should
rather live and do our work and lie
down to our final rest here than
anywhere else on the green earth. We
believe that Richmond is, for her siz?
and importance, the friendlicst town in
all the land. * * It is not possible
for us to have any sort of aympathy
with a certain unreasoning prejudhe,
which is not rare in Virginia, a^ainst
the capital city. It seems to us that
Richmond has achieved so much and
suflfered so much for the common good
that the whole State ought to feel inex
tinguiahable pride in her historv, her
present prosperity and her bright pros
pects of large growth. Many of our
people in Virginia, indeed, we think a
great raajority of them, have this
sentiment toward their capital.
At the samj time it is well to remind
our Richmond people that they ought
not to isolate themselves on questions
of public policy from the great niass of
Virginia citizens. Of course, where
any question of conscience is involved,
what we are saying has no point, and
ought to have no weight. But irt that
large realm of expediency it is wise tu
have constant referencetothe fact that,
aiter all, the city is dependent upon the
country for her growth and prosperity.
It by any mischance we should sacrifice
klhe good-wlll of the good people of the
Statc, we know of nothing that could
adequately repay this loss.
The Religious Herald is not in politics.
It occasionally ventures a word on
political themes that havea distinct and
important moral aspect, but even then
we try to be judicious and cautious.
Still, we shall not be blamed now, we
suppose, when no heated general politi?
cal battle is raging, if we remind our
people that a great number of our Vir
ginians, supposing that ourdaily papers
voiced the prcvailing sentiment, have
from time to time manifested some re
sentment toward the city.
If we were to offer in these columna
any political counsel we should be
strongly tempted to remind our Rich
mond folk that for reasons upon which
we n3ed not now enter, the political
issues, or ccrtain of them, at any rate,
arc much more vital to the white people
of our country and smaller towns than
they are to the great cities. However,
we do not mean to go into that matter.
Saloon Already Doomed.
Everybody that knowsanythingabout
the State knows very well that outside
of a few large citiea in the Coramon
wealth the open saloon is already
rioomed. It is, perhaps, a littlediffl^ult
for our well-to-do folk in the city, with
their comfortable homes and paved
streets, and admirablepolice protection,
to understand what the croaa-road grog
?ery means to communitiea which it
afflicta. Not in haste or passion, but
with an indignation that is surely righte
ous and is as rclentleaa as fate, the
country folk have bamshed these un
apeakabk* and degrading nuiaances.
Until the adoption of the new Constitu
tion, which practically eliminated the
negro as a voter. this was almost an
impossible task. Now, however, with
a more limited and more intelligent
franebise, the work has been done, or
ncarly done. Still it was not done with
out a stru^nle, and a hard struggle. It
isa pity that in this struggle the country
folk have little to remember in the way
of sympathy and help rendered to them
by their fortunate city brethren. Scarce
ly a daily newspaper in the Common
wealth was their out-spoken friend.
Now that, unaided, they have accom
plished in the main this great end, they
find our city people acquiescent in it
after a faahion, though our dailies, for
the most part, still argue, or seem to
argue, that it would be better for the
country to restore these cross-road
In the meantime, the saloon having
been ordered out, our cities (and our
beloved Hichmond chiefly) begin to ship
liqnor in packagcs into this very tcrri
tory, and it is loudly claimed that they
drive a roaring trade. Sooner or later
the law will be invoked to protect these
communitics that do not desire the sa?
loon or the illic.it sale of liquor sent
from without their borders, against
the cities. When that time comes the
attitudt* of the representatives of the
city in the Lcgislalure will be watched
wilh interest, and we ourselves shall be
curious to know what stand our daily
newspapem will take upon it.
lasue Inevitable In the Cities
That every city in the Commonwealth
will in the course of time, have to pasa
upon this issue of the open aaloon, no
thoughtful observer of the signs of the
time can f ail to believe. However, no
body is pressing such an iasue now, and,
so far aa we are able to learn, no one
in the leadership of the Anti-Saloon
work desires to precipitate this con
llict in Richmond. Wehave already
pointed out that the policy of the tem
perance people in Virginia has up to
this time been to work on the local op
tion principle. There are, however,
in the ranks of the temperance workers
many strong and excellent people, who
eurnestly desire more radical measures.
Some of these went to the last conven
tion asking that a State-wide campaign
should be launched at an early day.
They maintain that unless this is done,
and the entire State is put under prohi
bition, the cities will become distribu
ting centers for illicit liquor, and that
the law which is of so much importance
to the country communitiea will be far
more difficult of enforcement. Up to
this time the conservatives have pre
vailed, an**. are very likely to prevail.
The most infiuential men connected
with the temperance organization have
With this view we ourselves have
thoroughiy sympathized, as we have
repeatedly said. We hope to live to
see the day when there will not be an
open saioon in Virginia, but we would
rather see it brought about through the
will of the communities themselves,
duly ascertained and registered. For
our part, we do not believe the time
has yet arrived when such a contest
ought to be made in the city of Rich?
mond, and we should advise strongly at
this time against undertaking it. We
do not think that the beat method of
dealing with this question is through a
State-wide campaign, and to this opinion
we have also given frequent expression.
This does not mean that if, after full
consideration, the friends of the tem
perance movement in Richmond should
decide to put the question to the test,
that we would either desert or be found
neutral or inditferent. In such a con?
test we should do our best against the
saioon. So if the State-wide issue
should l?e made by the voice of the
friends of temperance, we should be
found fighting in the ranks. But we
have no wish to precipitate these con
flicts until they seem to be wise and
How to Haaten the Coafl ict.
There was held recently in the city of
Richmond a meeting of representative
citizens to protest. first, against any in
terference with the city's affairs by
outaiders. The meeting was intended
apparently to serve notice to the people
in Virginia that Richmond wished them
to keep their hands oft* and let her
manage her own affairs in her own way.
The formal reaolutions which were
adopted also protested against the :n
troduction, either now or at any other
time, of the Anti-Saloon issue in this
city. In so far, therefore, as these
reaolutions represent Richmond they
?epaxate her from practically all the
rest of the State. The local option
principie is recognized as truly demo
cratic, but the highly respectable gen
tlemen who drew and adopted these
reaolutions evidently took the ground
that our city is an exception; that while
a majority of citizens in any country
community may possibly determine
whether they wish the saioon to con
tinue as an establisbed institution, in
the city the saioon ieao interwoven with
our social, commercial, and they might
have added, political life, that there is
no hope at all of abolishing it without
doing an immeasurable injury to all the
best interests of the community.
To what a remarkable eminance has
this institution been elevated! If we
are to listen to these gentlemen, there
is scarcely another line of buaineas in
the city whoae abolition would work
llastenlag Prohlbltloa lijrbt.
But of this we have nothing further
to say. What we do wiah to say is,
and we aay it in utmost kindneas and
reepect, that if it is desired to precipi
tato a local option flght in this city,
there is no aurer way of bringing it
about than by holding juat a f?w more
of these mass-meetings. And what we
wish further to say is, that such meet
inga and such utterances are much more
likely to bring on the issue of State
wide prohibition than they are to defer
it. Pinally, let us all remember that
in any position the city might take on
this or on other"phasea of the question,
it is of vaatly more importance to Rich?
mond. socially, politicaily, commercially,
morally and religiously. that she should
have the continuing and growing affec
tion of the great mass of our country
brethren in the State than all the money
that has come to her citizens from the
sale of intoxicants from the day cf her
foundation to the preaent hour. Rich?
mond is not Virginia, but Richmond
needa Virginia, and if she is to grow
and prosper, muat have the thorough
good-will of the Virginians.
WHEAT CORNERS YS. THE PARMER.
I notice that a bill may be introduced
in Congreas in consequence of the re
cent operations in wheat, to prohibit
corners on food stuffs.
We hopo that such a bill may be in?
troduced; and friends, if such a bill is
introduced, urge upon your repreaenta
tive to support same.
Just a few weeks ago a Mr. Patten
cleared up a small fortune on wheat
The past week this same man cornered
3,000,000 bushels more, paying as much
as $1.15| per buahel for July wheat
If this cornering buainess in the
wheat market continues you and I will
have to fall back on the rule of olden
times?eat corn bread all week and
wheat bread Sunday morning. We
have becme so uaed to having wheat
bread when we want it that it would
be a little hard to fall back on the old
If Congress should pasa a law to prohib?
it these corners on food stuffs. it would
not affect the farmer, as he is willing
to dispose of hia wheat at a maximum
Would it not be wise to write your
congressman regarding this bill, dear
people? Show him the necessity of his
able support of a law to prohibit these
corners on wheat as well as other food
stuffs. 3. E. L.

MR. TUCKER'S WASHINGTON HOME.
The Richmond Journal calls attention
to Mr. Tucker's statement it was his
wife and not himself that had erected a
building in Washington not with a view
to occupying it as a home, but only as
an investment, and the Journal is wait
ing with patience and interest to see if
the papers that printed it as Mr. Tuck?
er's house will have the fajrness to print
Mr. Tucker's statement until itwas men
tioned in the Journal. The first reference
we aaw to the matter at all was in the
Washington Herald, in which a pic
ture of the palatial mansion was print?
ed, together with the statement that it
was buijt by Mr. Tuokor as a home.
Tbe Herald may have been in error,
and Mr. Tucker may have corrected
the error in the Herald, but if he did
we failed to aee it, and probably the
Journal alao failed to see it, as it did
not give the correction editorial prom

it is a distinction without a difference
whether it was Mr. Tucker or Mrs.
Tucker that gave Washington prefer

Mr. Tucker says It was the woman,
and so did old Adam! But it was all in
the family in both cases.
Now, if Mr. Tucker so loves Virginia
that he is willing to give himself aa a

flce, why didn't be exert the infiuence.
we will not aay the authority, which
it is fair to presume he has with hia
family, and have that investment
made in Virginia, the State he would
so lovc to serye? In the statement to
which our attention is called he does
not even claim that he tried to have
the investment made in this State.
Eren at this lata day, the voters of
Virginia will grant him acquittance if
he will aay that in an effort to get that
palatial mansion for Virginia he did
all he couki do, for angels could do no
more! The opportunity to serve Vir?
ginia in this matter waa his, but so
far aa appeara to the public, he wrap
ped hia talent in a napkin and stuck
it away to rust in idleneas. Having
failed in this amall thing how can he
expect the people of Virginia to make
him ruler over greater things?
Not this time, Harry St. George!

to old Virginia, and emulate the ex

making two blades of grass to grow
where one had grown before, and you

WAR ON SPARROWS.
War is to be declared on the English
sparrow which has grown to be a public
nuiaance. In the city these sparrows
were a peat, but far worse have they
become in the country. The News
Leader referring to a letter from a cor
' 'He aaya that because of the aparrows
it is almoat useless to attempt to raiae
flowers or amali vegetablea near the
city. The wretched little noisy, pugna

every leaf of the sweet pea, eat aspara
gus as fast aa it comea through the soil,
take all bloeaoms from the beans and
destroy everything not too heavy or hot
for them to handle. This citizen, too,
haa sought the consolation and guidance
from Washington and sends an official
letter from the department of agricul
ture adviaing aa to the destruction of
the sparrows. We are told that at this
time of year the breeding femalea may
be attracted by "dummy" nesting boxes,
caught in them after dusk and killed.
One-aixteenth of |an ounce of aulphate

A HERO OF THE MESSINA EARTH
The May McClure's contains a letter
written by a survivor of the Messina
earthquake. She describes the heroic
behavior of a fellow sufferer.
"A yourig man, whom I shall never
forget, a cripple, with only one leg,
clambering with a crutch among the
ruins, saved scores of people. Untir
inglv he searched among the wreckage,
he brought back to us everything he
could find; he took bits of chocolate out
of his mouth to put into the mouths,
forever open, of crying children.
"A marvel. in truth, was the fore
thought of this man. Where did he
unearth a crate of apples? He hid
them, he defended them from the vio
lence of the greedy; and through the
night he went among the hute, distrib
uting quarters of apples to each one of
us in his turn, with calculating parsim
ony, with implacable justice. I shall
remember him as long as I IIva, that
fragment of a man among the frag
ments of a city. He explored the ruin
ed city in every direction, to find a way
of escape. to open a road for us. We
could see him hanging like a mountain
Roat over the edge of frightful preci
pices. At night he never rested, un
less it were to make a pillow of himself
for those who did not know where to
Iay their heada, amid the mire, the
blood, and the ruin. The name of this
hero is Salvatore Stellario. What be
came of him when the anguished fight
for the preservation of life had ceased,
and we saw the fire close at hand[
after a night spent under the rain,
dreadful scourge, amid continual earth
quakes, the horrors of darkness, cold,
fear, the ever fainter inoaning of the
hurt? They told me he sought safety
in the direction of the railway. Per
haps I shall see himagain."
OUIDA ON THE WOMAN PROBLEM.
A unique and interesting feature of
Lippincott's Magazine for May is the
first of two papers which Louise de la
Harr.ee, betUr known as Ouida, the
briiliant novelist, wrote more than
twenty-five years ago and sold with the
stipulation that they should be with
held from the public until after her
death. She passed away in Viarreggio,
Italy, January 26th, 1908, and the pub
iishers are now free to give to the pub?
lic these extraordinary documents
which, in her characteristic chirogra
phy, remained in the editor's safe so
many years?paasing uninjured through
the fire which destroyed the great
Lippincott plant in 1899. The first pa
per is quite prophetic of the world-wide
iaterest now obtaining in the question
of woman's suffrage. The second will
present a serious and startling philoso
phy of an evil as wide-spread as it is
appalling. So apropos are both these
papers to conditions at the present time
that the thought is pretty certain to
occur to the reader that their famous
author waa indeed gifted with the
apirit of prophecy.
