The extracts from Senator Sherman's

He is evidently disappointed, notwith?

Ident Garfiald, however, do not appear*
to hold good in tho lig'al of hiitory,
whloh shows taa-, the latter was faith*
ful to Sherman as long as thoro was $
chance for his nomination. For a raari
to refuse a prize because it is impossi?
ble for his friend to obtain it, would
bo to sacrifice self on the altar of senti*
mcnt, something that Senator Shermari
would be tho last man to do, if ono Is tc\
judge him by bis political record; and ;
y o: that was what ho seems to think Mr.
Garflold ought to have dono in regard to
tho Republican nomination for Presi?
dent in 1380. The truth is, Senator
Sherman is a cold, selfish, practical
man, disposed to hold every one rigidly
accountable whoro his own Interests
aro concerned, jot unwilling to make
any compensating sacrifices for others.
This trait In his character is possibly
the real cause of his failure to attain
tho summit of his ambition, tho Presi?
dency of tho Unitod Statos.

A srontlomun, prominent in Demo?
cratic circles and heretofore an enthu?
siastic worker and, by tho way, an
otticer of one of the ward clubs, upon
being asked for his opinion, stated that
he cmsidored that Allen Watts' cake
was about baked.
A metnbor of tho old Democratic
regime, whon discussing Mr. Watts' posi?

Btated that if Mr. Watts were to oilVr

The news from Vinton, straight from

tho thing has reacted, and tho boys

A Superb I'orfonuauce at the Academy
A superb performance of "Hendrick
Hudson, or tho Discovery of Columbus,"
anexqul3ito operatic extravaganza, was
given by the Kimball Opera Company at
tho Academy last night and it is a pleas?
ure to record that lioauoke turned out
a fair audience in appreciation of tho
managerial enterprise that secured this
tine organization as an attraction.
Magnificently staged, superbly dressrd,
finely equipped with fresh, brilliant
chorus voices, and fairly teeming wtth
beautiful tableaux and rich elfects, tho
extravaganza was the best that has yet
been seen in our city, and a more uni?
formly excellent collection of principal
it would bo hard to find on the stage of
the present day.
Oorinne, the graceful, shapely
burlesque actress and charming
einKcr, completely cap'.ivated her
audie^o in the character of
Hendrick Hudson. Her voieo Is a
rich musical contralto, and it was won?

"Cavaleria Rustlcana" stamping her as
an artist on tho instrument,
i Mr. Grlnnell, as Kill Von Kull.was ir
fTesistlbly comic, his absurdities keeping
I the audience in a perpetual roar. Other
special features of the rjerformance wero
the singing of Mabel Nichols and Lilian
Knott, tho intensely comic business of
Lindsay Morrison and CharleB Koste He
and the magnificent dance of tho
Amazons In tho second act.
If any weak feature existed In tho
performance it was tho stiff action and
Bomewhat ineffective voice of Marry
Dieiz, in tho character of Gaff Ensign.
Taken as a whole, tho performance
was first class, and it is to be hoped
that this organization will, in the near
future, visit Roanoko again.
