convention a haated iasue between the
ao-called "machine"?ita alleged lead

The Builetin ia not a machinophobiac
nor doea it regard itaelf aa a aupporter

ported Mr. Tuekar very heartily for
GoTernor, notwiihatand.ng the non
aeneical output of the Journal and one
or two other papera of the State at
the time in regard to tha "machine,'*
Govemor Swanson, the Rhea appoint
ment, etc, ad nauaeam. Moat of Mr.
Swanaon'a frienda in thia county and
town did likewiae and the vote against
Mann in Henry county, a Swanaon'a
atronghold, waa more than two to one.
It looka now very much aa though
Mr. Tucker, through the influence of
the papera referred to, ia about to lose
hia hcad and ia preparing to make a
raca for the aenatorahip on the "holier
than-thou" platform. It won't work.
It haa been tried before by others and
the people had aenae enough to aee
through it and vote it down.
BETTER GO SLOW.
TheTimea ia unterrifiedly democratic;
it ia therefore pro-convention, which ia
to aay anti-primary. We aorely miss
the old time convention, state and dia
trict, when the clana gathered, toucHed
elbowa. and received inapiration from
one another, and returned to their re
apective battlefields with renewed
courage to do and dare for the party
weal; we yearn for the hlessing that*1
comea of periodical communion around
the altar of democratic faith, and are
filled inatead with loathing and disguat
at the miaerable orgy which passea
under the polite tho altogether mislead
ing cognomen, primary.
And ao, perhaps, we favor the pro
poe^d State Convention, with which
for some cauae, our brothers of the
daily preaa are for the present filled.
Why this sudden hugh and cry for a
Convention? Who, in other words, is
behind the move?
We don't semehow like to go at too
rapid a gate; it smacka rather too
strongly of the method of politicians
with an ulterior motive. Uaually the
aafer guide, ia to go slow, and taken
altogether we like it beat.
HAV8 CHANGKD FRONT.
No greater misfortune could befali
the Democratic party of Virginia at
thia time than to hold a State Conven?
tion for the gratification of a lot of
political derelicta, who want to tell the
people'a repreaentativea what to do
and how they abould vote on questiona
that may come ap for consideration.
The people have aelected their repreaen?
tativea without regard to the viewa or
wiahea of the gentlemen who now ao
eagerly tender their services in the mat
ter of ootlining the future policy of the
party. They do not want their advice
and, furthermore, tbey will not heed it.
Theae aame newspapers and self-con
stituted leadera were equally vociferous
in their efforta to aboliah representative
conventiona when candidatea were to be
nominated and party platforma should
have been proclaimed. Now, when no
candidatea are to be nominated and the
people want a reet from political agita
tion, theae champions of the corpora
tiona and;traata are anxioua to ateal a
march on the people, hold a anap con
vention and declare for thinga that the
people have emphatically rejected.
PRAISES OUR COUNTY.
Editor Virginia Citizbn :?Yon will
aliow me a araall apace in your paper
to congratulate the people generally of

of traveling over them, pursuing my

the town of Irvington, compoaed of
beautiful young Iadiea and hospitable
citizeos, whom a stranger need not be
timid in making hia appearance among,
but rather feel that he ia a welcome

the Irvington Beach hotel, R. S. Mitch

ing to the comforta of his gueata, and
aervea such good oysters, and all the
luxuries that a table can be filled with.
I had the pleasure of also visiting your
county fair at Kilmarnock, and there
met with many of my old achooi mates,

intended to, not knowing whether I am

that th.y were the reeult of a deaire of
individuals to advertiae themaelvea in

no-* tcndir thoae ambitioua gentlemen
a elKjht word af advice. and that ia to
aaro both their timo and their money,
becauae the people of Virginia have no
idea of changing a faithfol and efficient
public aervant, a man of aterling in
tegrity and the very higheat peraonal
character, for an untried and inexperi
enced individual. The wily poltticiana
who deaire thia office will of courae be
looking for aome iasue or excuae upon
which to base a candidacy, but the real
fact remaina that there ia but one ex?
cuae poesible for oppoeing Senator
afartin'a re-election, and that ia, that
aome one else wanta the office.
Thia county ia overwhelmingly for
Senator Martin againat anybody in the
State who might oppoae him, and we
believe that the State ia in the aame
condition of mind. Therefore, we tender
the advicc, gentlemen, eave your time

A PAIR OF NOTABLES.
One of the most cloquent of the new
Congreasmen is Harry Thaw's last at
torney, Martin W. Littleton, the Dem?
ocrat who won out in Coionel Roose
velt's own Oyster Bay district. He is
a young man?only thirty-eight?and
was born down in Tennessee.
Robert E. Lee, the virile young Dem?
ocrat who haa just been elected to
Congress in the Pottsville, Pa., dis?
trict, over Robert D. Heaton, a million
aire Republican, by a plurality of only
61 votes, ia a blacksmith, or rather a
former blacksmith, who has carved his
own destiny andcomraanded rccognition
by the sheer foree of hia own ability
and character. Hia triumph is the
more noteworthy when we consider that
the district waa heretofore a Republi?
can etronghold and that hi i opponent had
unlimited means with wiiich to prose
cute hia canvass. Young Lee Is not a
relative of the famoun Lee family of
Vinrinia, but his parentewere probably
admirers of the great Virginia soldirr
and gentleman, or they would hardly
have named their son for him. Such a
name, appealing to old war prejudices
as it inevitably must have done, v.as a
handicap, rather than a help to this
plucky young Democrat. So close was
the contest that the final count of the
ballota was had in court. Young Lee
representod his own interest in that
count and, though not a lawyer, ad
dresaed the court forcef ully in eff ective
ly protesting against permitting any
opportunity for the partisans of his Re?
publican opponent to manipulate or
tamper with the returos, and the court
granted hia motion. The result of the
official count of three disputed ballot
boxea waa a triumph for Lee, and he
was offieially declared elected by the
majority stated. The succesa of thia
young Pennaylvanian is not only a
aignal triumph for Democracy, but it
should aerve aa an inspiration to young
men. We hope to hear more of Robert
E. Lee of Pennsylvania. Virginians
everywhere will feel a peculiar interest
in his career by reason of his name, if
for no other.? Register.
NORFOLK AND SENATOR MARTIN.
A apecial diapatch from Washington
conveya the information that of the
$22,227,361 which it ia estimated by
General W. H. Bixby, chief of engineers
of the United States array, will be ex
pended for the improvement of rivera
and harbora, $675,000 of thia aum will be
expended in Virginia watera. More
than 2 per cent. of the total appropria
tion will come to this State, or a aum
larger in proportion than the State
would be entitled toon abaais of wealth
Norfolk will derive the chief benefit
from the bulk of the improvementa to
be made with thia $675,000. Among
other thinga the channel in the harbor
of Norfolk will be deepened to thirty
feet at a coat of $100,000, and other
improvementa to be made in the harbor
there ao aa toprovide a better approach
to the citiea of Norfolk and Portamouth
will absorb $425,000 more of the total
apportionmentof the fund to thia State.
Thia makea a total of $525,000 of the
$675,000 to be expended in interest of
theae two Virginia citiea. About $150,
000 will be expended in the improve?
ment of navigation along the James
It ia a matter of common knowledge j
that much of the credit for aecuring
theae handsome sums for Norfolk-Ports
mouth bettermenta is due to United
Statea Senator Thomaa S. Martin. The
business and navigation interpsta will
eoncede thia, we are sure. and if our
recollection ia aright they have already
made acknowledgment of their grati
tude tothe Senator, who, together with
Representative Maynard, ia entitled to
chief credit for aecuring the expcndi
ture of such a large aum in the harbor

high rank on the appropriatioRs com
mittee of the Senate and his influence
in that coramittee and on tbe flour of
the Senate, gained through years of
aervice and hia own recognized fact
and ability, are of great value to the
State. A new Senator, whatever hia
ability, could hardly hope to exercise
auch influence for years to eome.-Dan
STEADY, MR. GLASS.
Whoa, Representative Carter Glass!
Don't let'a go too fa3t or too far in
diacusaing conditions in Virginia, It
will not do to give the impression that
the State ia a sink of iniquity or under
the control of a ruthless ring. Such an
impression would not be good for the
State or in accordance with the fucts.
Suppoae we stop and breathe and cool
o(T a minute and consider things aa
In the flrat placc, we have had very
few scandala in our primary elections
until recently. We recall but two or
i three inatauces, and these of minor i?n
portance so far as results went, until
this hurrah in Norfolk. We have a
govemor nominated in an open primary
and in great part by the members of
the Anti-Saloon League, suppoaed to
include many of the best people of the
State. We have a United StateB sen?
ator also chosen in an open primary
after full and open debate on the stump
and by a vote which seems th have been
cast and counted fairly. This senator
ia suppos??d to be the head of "the ma?
chine," but hetook his chances before
the people and won.
When the frauds were discovered at
Norfolk this same senator, before an
open mass meeting4in that city, chal
lenged the State to produce a particle
of evidence that he had interfercd **in
the election there. His challenge re
mains unanswered. If there is any
such evidence it has not been produced.
The same man denounced the frauds
bitterly and demanded that those guilty
of them be punished.
Then the democratic State committee
investigated the election, decided it
was fraudulent and ordered a new
election. This last election was open
and free to all democratic voters and
seems to haveibeen fair. It resulted in
the defeat of the man declared to have
been elected in the first primary.
We see nothing in this over which
to become excited or on which to
frame flerce sentencee or talk of intol
erable conditions. We see no provoca
tlon for a chapter of lamentations or
gloomy forebodings of destruction or
calls for excitement. Wc have a sen?
ator elected by the people, a governor
elected by the Anti-Saloon League,
another senator appointed by that same
governor, a fraudulent election declared
void and the guilty men prosecuted
until relieved by a point of law. So
who is to be blamed and who denounced?
Cool down; Mr. Glass. Cool down.
Calm your fervid emotions and sootho
these dipturbing fears. So far as we
have observed, "The machinc" is not
tearing at the vitals of the common
wealth. To the contrary. "the ma
chine" itself seems to be undergoing
some internal disturbances. If the party
committee8 will give us honest men
for election officers?and- usually they
have done so heretofore?we may yet
survive and maintain our balance and
