When a gilded popinjay thirsts for
notoriety he often cuts such antics and
exposed such portions of his anatomy as
to loave the spectator in doubt as to
whether he is a biped or a quadrupod.
The "machine" is making a bigelfort
to get votr s among Republicans, Popu ?
lists and Prohibitionists. A week ago
^ho. political sports who handle tho
"machino" were not so condescending.
They boasted that they had enough
machlno men to chew up tho opposition.
It has leaned from tho undiacrnot
tongue of a gilded youth who acts aa
"Bupo" to tho machine, that tho ques?
tion of putting a dry man on tho ma?
chine ticket waa duly considered and de?
cided inadvisable, tho unanimous opin?
ions leing that a dry man could not bo
elected. This oalls to mind tho old
story that when a man gets "bllin*"
drunk he is willing to swear that he is
the only sober man in sight.
The "machine" has issued instruc?
tions to i'.s heelers and strikers that an
"alternating" process must bo followed.
Certain days aro to bo devoted to going
among tho Democrats and informing
them that the Citizens' tloket is com?
posed of Republicans, and should bo
squelched, and alternate days must bo
devoted to button-holing Republicans,
and informing them that tbo Citizens'
ticket is composed of Democrats. Tbo
wayj of tho macbino aro numerous and
dirty, but not past finding out.
Again we c*ll on tho "boys'' to ox
plain why that snako in-tho-crass, tho
now famous "application" blank, was
issued by tho "machine." Tho poop'o
of Roanoko are of tho opinion that it
was i6Htioi for a deep-dyed, villainous
purpose. The attempt to whitewash
theschemo by the testimony of Innocent
moths is a dismal flzz'.o. Tho people
are of the same opinion still. Tho faco

evidence of intended treachery and

When the "boys" met at Salom to
nominate their machine ticket, that
"apple of their eyo," tho Walton law,
was silently and gently nursed as a
thing of b auty and a joy forever. Later
when an occasional Democrat spoke his
mind about this instrument of fraud
and theft, the machine became nervous
and fidgety. A llttlo later tho honor
loving Democrats, who love their coun?
try first and their party next,became so
numerous and bold In their utterance of
disapproval of such dirty, contemptlblo
and thoiving methods of stealing votes
that tho "machlno" took fright and in

machine in this city stated that the
candidate for tho State senate on tho
Citizens ticket "must and shall be de?

not only his contempt for the people,

Hil 1) BALLOT AND A FA IK COUNT.
The letter of "Democrat", published
elsewhere in Tub Timks, deserves the
careful consideration of all classes of
readers. The day has gone by in this
community when any men or clasB of
neon, whatever their poraonal or politi?
cal views, can dictate to voters what
ballots they shall cast. As free
American citizens they have a right to
voto as their judgments and consciences
dictate, and to say that men 6hould
wear the collar of aDy clique, faction or
party, simply because of tho name it
bears, 13 an InBult to their intelligence.
Tho Citizens' ticket represents tho
sober,second thought of the people of this
district. Democracy's name has been
used long enough as a oloak to hide
sins which are foreign to its nature and
unknown to its creed. The ballot has
been perverted to accomplish personal
ends, instead of carrying out the true
sentiments of the people, and Demo?
crats, as well as Republicans, Prohibi?
tionists and Populists, are rising in their
might to secure honest and fair elec?
tions. The Walton law is acknowledged
even by its apologists as being a failure
in many respects, and its unconditional
repeal is now demanded by the liberty
loving people of the State.
All men have a right to thoir political
views. Tho attempt to apply tho party
lash in thiB election will be futilo.
Democrats have a right to insist on good
government, and when the ring that
controls the action of that party refuses
to allow a frco expression of opinion, it
is thoir duty, no les3 than their privi?
lege, to join with those who are aiming
to secure tbo sacrednes3 and freedom of
tho ballot. Bluff and bulldoelng will
not avail. Argument and reason aro the
only weapons that can bo used, and tho
further the members of the combine
depart from this path of justice and
common sense the greater will bo tho
majority for the Citizens' tlckot next
WKESTL1N? WITH A NEW WORD.
Readers of Tiik Timks are generally
very intelligent poople, who understand
what thr-y read. But ono of them com?
plains that hu is utterly at a less to
understand tho word "(loo Gcos," which
has lately broken loose in town, and ho
a3ks The Times for a d. finitlnn of it.
That a man of superior intelligence
should not understand such a word is
not strange, because it is not a word
based upon intelligence or in any sense
appealing to understanding. It is from
the lower strata of life and so far as it
expresses anything it convey a the spleen
of that element. It is from the slums
of New York, and was pickod up and
adopted by the Now York Sun, which is
the journalistic sewer through which
tho malign depravity and corruption
from the gutters of Gotham finds vent
in the vortex of Tammany Ball politics.
That erratic freak of journalism uses
tho word with much unctious glee to
designate any parson who disapproves
of tho unscrupulous macbino methods
of Tammany Hall, which institution is
nothing moro nor Icbs than an organized
band of freebootora, with a few decent
psoplo lured into tho ranks to lend
respectability to "tho orginorzashun"
in order that ''do bjos 'can do business
under tho rospcctab'.o namo of Democ?
Aa to tho derivation of tho now word
there aro various stories. But tho most
authentic and reasonable, is that two
Tammany Hall heelers met in front of a
bowery saloon to talk over "do situa
shun." Who l tho drunken ono as?
signed the soberer man to vote six
times tho latter demurrod on the ground
of danger. Thereupon tho mellow
ate. ten man is said to havo exc'.aimed in
groat disgust: "O, say (hie), you/.o is a
(bic) Goo-Goo! (Hie) Youzo is! See?"
Some narrators state that the engaged
leader intended to say good-goody and
others say tho anathoma would have been
"good government," in allusion to tho
good government clubs, if the over-joy?
ful chief hadn't stumbled with his
Nevertheless, tho word soems to havo
greatly pleaicd tho grotesque anti fat
editor of Tho Sun and ho is using it
freely to help him out of a mighty
hard place, with indllToront buccoss.
Doubtless othors in a similar dilemma
and with nothing olso to rely upon will
attempt to imitate him in somo sort of
fashion if they agroe with him that
honesty in poli;ic9 is disgusting and a
desiro for good government is a re?

Citizens' Ticket In the Lend.
Euitoh ok Thk Times:?I am juat
from the Holllns neighborhood, where
thn Citizens' Ticket is in the load. The
Prohibitionists are generally indignant
at the "wetness'' of the Democratic
ticket and thn lac t of rcspeot shown the
large temporanao element in the county,
by which the "dry" sentiment was
ignored. Many Demoorats are dissatis?
fied with tholr own ticket because tho
people have become tired of politicians,
and especially of corporation politicians,
whose records havo not boon true to
their constituents. The people want a
new deal and will not "wear the collar"
any longer. They are waking up all
along the lino and are determined to
robuko recreant candidates.
In the first place tbey want fair elec?
tions and then tbey want fair platforms
and fair candidate- to stand on thorn.
I have heard many endorsements, even
I from Democratic nources, of what I
noticed in your paper last week, viz:
that tho heelers and henchmen bad
gotten the pies and plums undor this
administration, and the applicants for a
position, however old he bad grown in
tho service of his country, was doomed
to disappointment unless he was closely
identified witb tho questionable methods
of tho machine. 1 also observe that
many of the Democratic papors and
politicians havo gone over to the sido of
honest elections since tho inauguration
of that movement. I almost feel it my
duty to remain at home in disgust on
election day as did tens of thousands of
my fellow-Democrats in Now York,
Maryland and everywhere else last fall,
when tho Republicans swept the coun?
try like a cyclone.

"Only i4 Furnier'? Daughter" at the Acad?
The Philadelphia Ledger says. Tho
comedy drama, "Only a Farmer's
Daughter," was presented last evening
at too Arch Street Theatre. Harold
Lenox, a wealthy author, is the rara

tbo machinations of an adventuress and
her gentleman friend. Mr. Lenox,
whose head might well bo turned at
finding himself made opulontby a clever
pen, dreaniB of society success, and Is
Irritated by tho simple domesticity of
hia honest loving wife. He considers
that her farm naming is a drag upon
his social progress, and, wbilo his head
is in the clouds, the villains in the plot
contrive to get him into situations
which compromise him in the eyes of
his wife. Then comes a breach, and the
Beemlng triumph of vice over virtue is
followed in by tho confession of the
culpable, and "all's well that ends

I KIKNl) TO SYRIANS .
Itev. Father .J. Yaabek, From tho Holy
Lund, -it St. Andrew's (Catholic) Church.
Rev. Father J. Yassbek, the Syro
Maronito missionary, is tho guest of
Rev. Father J. VV. Lynch. Ho arrived
Saturday evoning from Richmond, this
being his second visit to this city, tho
former visit being about sixteen months
ago. On his former visit ho conducted
a successful mission among tho Syrian
colony in Roanoke.
On Sunday ho celebrated tho 10
o'clock mass according to the ritoof tho
Maronltes, using the Syro-Chaldeic lan?
guage instead of the Latin, which, with
this exception, is universal. Not alone
tho Syrians, but all present worodeeply
interested in his sermon, as it was full
of instruction and information.
Father Yazbek is the same reverend
gentleman who delivered the address at
Washington before the Eucharistie Con?
gress. This address called forth many
deserved encomiums from the Catholic
as well as tho Becular press. The
services on Sunday wore of unusual in?
terest, as it Is seldom our people have a
chance to hear a divlno who comes di?
rect from tho Holy Land, ablo to so
intelligently givo an accurate account
of tho ancient traditions.
Father Ya/bok'a missionary field ex ?
tends almost to the whole country where
his cauntrytnon colonize and very often
thoeo poor people And in him thoir
main support, not only for spiritual, but
for temporal wants. This is due not only
to the implicit confidence reposed, but
to their ignorance of our languaga and
customs In many cases he settles thoir
troubles In a fatherly way, saving the
civil authorities much annoyance.
Once a Syrian lacking stifilcient and
efficient legai talent to defend him. was
sentenced to fiva years in the Ohio peni?
tentiary. After ho had served eighteon
months, Father Yazbeok heard of it,
and arming him-tnlf with the facts, he
called on Governor McKinley and had
tho poor man released of three and a
half years of his sentence. Since com
Ing here ho has h?-ard of an accidont to
a Syritn, duo, as has been reported to
him, to some carelessness of the Norfolk
and Western railroad employes. Ho
says ho intends to look c'osaly into tho
facts s.nd endeavor to have the company
