The Washington Star says it is not ex?

pass a bankruptcy bill through the House
during the present session. Had the
Senate passed the Torroy bill instead of
tho Nelson substitute, the committee on
rules would probably have brought it up
in the House by a special rule; but the
Senate bill not being satisfactory to the
House, too much time would be tnken in
brlncing about an ngreement; therefoic
the matter will be deferred till next ses?

' Modern Greeks seem tobe greatly lack?
ing in the qualities that won imperisha?
ble fame for their ancestors. They went
to war with Turkey a few days ago with
an enthusiastic recklessness worthy of
the men who drove Xerxes and what was
left of his millions tack into Asia; but iu
the hour of disaster they are -sadly want?
ing in the stern courage and calm forti?

sistance is useless and snatches victory
from the arms of defeat. Less than a

they are holding him responsible for their

danger of deposition or assassination.
The recent growth and increase of so?

revival of tho study of "genealogy iu this

injustice to characterize this movement

It is much more. It stimulates a desire
for genealogical and historical research, it

to a proper respect for one's ancestors,

It revives an interest in American his?

the movement is one to be commended,

MISTAKEN 55E \1..
A city Council is to nil intents and
purposes a board of directors'entrusted
with the manngemeut of municipal
-affairs, and its members should l>e chosen
more with a view to their fitness from a
business stahdpoillt than from any other.
This view has always been held by The
Times under the present management,
-but we regret to learn that it is the policy
of some of our citizens to disregard every
other qualification, and make tin1 record
of each candidate for city office upon the
silver question a test of his fitness for the
position to which he aspires.
The'viewa of a city Councilman upon
tnis great national problem one way or
another can in no sense affect his qualifi?
cations iu the mind of any liberal and
right-thinking man, as the City Council
of Roanoke wil' never be called upon to
decide this weighty problem. Hence,
while some may contend that sometimes
it is best to draw party lines in making
nominations for city ollices, it seems very
unwise to carry the question even further
and make loyalty to faction a test to to
voted upon at the approaching Demo?
cratic primary The Tunes stood up for
silver coinage when the measure ha?1 hut
few friends in this section; but much
as it desires the success of free coinage in
national affait s.it does not hesitate to con
demn emphatically tho | narrow-minded
pnrtlsanry which would shut out from
all part in tho management of tho city's
business those who failed to vote for Mr.
B>-yan at tho late Prejcldeutial election.
There is already a disposition toward
bar-jony amomr tho different members
of tho Democratic party, and tho exercise
of a little tact and discretion by the ma
jovlty faction would do much toward
strengthening tho national organization
for the great Presidential light in 1900.
In municipal matters a mnn's usefulness
should not be estimated by his politics or
his religious beliefs, but by ids public
spirit and his intellectual qualifications.
In a community where tho gcueral pros
perlty affects so intimately the happiness
and welfaro of the individual citizen, the
proper administration of the affairs is not
necessarily dependent on the success of
nnv particular party, but upon the char?
acter of the men entrusted with that task.
Roanoke needs live, honest, capable men
in her City Couucil; but it is not neces?
sary as a test of their usefulness and fidel?
ity that they wear a silver badge with tho
legend: "I voted for Brynn in 1890, and
am for free silver yet." .
MR. BAILEY'S OPPORTUNITY.
The Nelson bankruptcy till, having
passed the Senate, is now a legitimate as
it is a pressing question before tho House.
There are many reasons why it should re?
ceive consideration. It does not appio*
priate money. It is strictly non-partisan
in its purpose and Inspiration. It "con?
templates a result of universal value and
importance. It can bo acted on without
raising the question of the appointment
of any committee, and therefore without
broaching tho smallest issue of House dis?
Here, as we think, is Mr. Bailey's op?
portunity. The country ' wants a bank
ruptcy law. Every lawful and substan?
tial interest would be promoted by the
enaction of one. No party question is or
need be involved. The question is one of
wise and patriotic statesmanship. Why
should uot Mr. Bailey take the lead in
pressing this matter upon the attention
of the House and in aliuulu" [the Demo?
cratic contingent with a measure of con?
spicuous usefulness to the entire country?
Tho Eremite uill need not necessarily be
referred to any committee save the com?
mittee of tho whole?which exists with?
out appointment by the Speaker?and it
could be called up, considered, and acted
upon, without" challenging the policy
which Mr. Reed has adopted as to organ?
ization. At the head of such a move?
ment as this, Mr. Bailey wouldcoounanrl
the respectful attention oi the country
As the champion of an act of purely non
partisan statesmanship he would bring
into play his undoubted ability as a de?
bater and a strategist. He would cer?
tainly receive the united and cordial sup?
port of the Democrats in the Douse, und
would have, besides, the sympathy and
approval of a majority of the Republi?
cans. It would not be a party victory, of
course, in case lie succeeded in tho enter
prise, but it would be a victory for con?
servatism, for commercial morality, auil
for tho general welfare.
We seriously advise Mr. Bailey to pon?
der this suggestion. It is our firm belle'
that, notwithstanding the) disinclination
of the House Republicans to enter upon
general legislation at this time, tbe coun?
try's great need of a bankruptcy IIW and
the consequent pressure of public senti?
ment in that direction would, if the ques?
tion were once fairly broached, exert an
almost irresistible Influence in .favor of
consideration. And it would commend
the Democratic party very forcibly to the
nation's respect and approbation should
that party, under Mr. Bailey's leader?
ship, be instrumental in giving impetus
to the movement.?Washington Post.

CLEVELAND'S BID FOR THE
GOLD BUG NOMINATION IN 1000.
Washington, "April 28.?(Special.)?
Three yenrs ago the Democrats wanted to
pass a tariff law. The Republicans had
a majority in the Senate, and when the
bill reached the upper bianchof Congress
It was changed until its host friends
could not recognize it, and President
Cleveland, while not vetoing it, declined
to sigu the measure.
Now tho Republicans want to pass a
tariff law. and the Democrats, while not
having a majority in the Senate, have tho
power by combining with Populists and
silver Republicans to defeat the bill. As
soon as it reached the* Senate | tho Re?
publican minority of the finauce commit?
tee carried it away to the Arlington
Hotel, and the Democrats have not seen
it since. The Republican minority an?
nounce that they are about through with
the bill, and have made the startling
proposition ttiat they be allowed to send
the bill directly to the Senate without
submitting it to the majority of the com?
mittee A, inoro impudent proposition
was never made. The only reason given
ivna that It would pravont "kickers"
from objecting," and thus facilitate the
work of passing the measure. Every pos?
sible precaution has been .taken against
"kickers." All meetings have been in
secret, and none have been admitted ex?
cept those invited by . the Republican
members of the committee. Even the
Democratic members of the committee,
who had a right to be "present, were kept
in profound ignorance of the changes
made in the bill. It would have been
just as reasonable for the Republican
minority to request the Democratic major?
ity to refrain from voting on the bill and
allow it to pass" unanimously. This
would have been the most effectual way
to silence "kickers." The Democrats de?
clined any such a proposition, and the
Republicans now accuse them of ?telay
ing necessary legislation.
"We have mnde no such agreement,"
said Senator Harris, of the finance com?
mittee, "and so far us I am concerned, we
Senator Jones, of Arkansas, said: "The
bill will have to take the usual course.
As yet, it has never been considered In
Senator White said: "I would he glad
to gratify the personal inclinations of any
Senator, but, speaking for myself only, I
am unable to perceive the propriety of
such a course and cannot acquiesce in it.
When the bill is reported to the Senate
the Democratic members ought to be able
to immediately lay before their colleagues
a comparatively full statement of the in?
firmities of the proposed measure. This
cannot, be done unless the subject is prop?
erly discussed in committee and, if exam?
ined there with care, much labor will be
saved when the proposition is submitted
to the Senate.
"If the Democratic members arc of any
use on the. commltteo,tt must he because
they will be able to give information.
Besides, n fair presentation of the views
of the minority may lead to immediate
changes in Improvement to the bill. If
we consent to the adoption of the plan
outlined by the Republican members, it
will be said that we iiave given away our
eise and are represent inu lint half-hearted
opposition. Such a scheme would bo
novel, would require explanation, and
cannot result favorably to public inter?
ests. If our Republican brethren have
improved the bill, so as to make it passa?
bly digestible, they can afford to suhheit
It to careful und conservative criticism in
the committee rooms.
"The country understands, of 'eoursej
that the Republican members of the
IInance committee have had the bill since
it passed the Bouse, tintl that the minor?
ity have interposed no obstruction and
have not been in n position to intelli?
gently examine a single schedule and this
situation will not be altered until tho de?
tails of the measure are disclosed.
"I do not complain of the delays. The
subject Is one of grave"import, and tho
gentlemen who huvo been preparing
amendments have been working assidu?
ously, ami are, no doubt, troubled be?
cause of the extraordinary burden 'im?
posed upon them by the House. Thus
far.-there has been no real debate on the
bill, and wdiile I am most anxious to see
this session closed, I know that quite a
time will necessarily be consumed in le?
gitimate discussion, I have been fre?
quently asked whether the retroactive
clause, will be eliminated. I can only Bay
t hat I thoroughly agree with ".the criti?
cisms made upon this peculiar provision
by Senator Vest, and I do not. think that
it can be retained nor do I, believe thai it

Every Democratic member of the

Representative .Tones, of Washington,
will achieve as much notoriety on his
newspaper bill as Senator Ellsworth, of
Now York, did with his bill neainst the
Republican cartoons. Mr. [Jones wants
the newspapers to publish the names not
only of the proprietors and responsible
editors and managers in ench issue, but
he wants all articles, and especially edito?
rials, s'.gned^by the. man who wrote them.
There would certainly be astonishment at
the unknown names signed to leaders in
leading dailies supposed to be written by
famous editors. The bill will not pass,
but it brings Mr, Jones out very promi?
nently from the mass of newly elected
members, and, for a time, he will be
much talked about, even though the com?
ments are not destined to lie very fuvora
Captain Vaughn, of Kentucky, a street
railroad contractor, has drawn up a bill,
which will be introduced by a Kentucky
representative whenever committees are
appointed by Speaker Reed, which will
probably not be until the regular session
next December, providing for the pen?
sioning of 0: slaves It Is not ?0 much a
matter of sympathy for the colored race
as for their formet masters, it beim-' rep?
resented by Captain Vaughn that there
are thousands of negroes who are helpless
and that their former masters are com?
pelled to support them. Having been de
prlved of tbeir property in these .slaves,
Capt. Vaughn urges it is no more than
right that the Government should make
the colored people its own wards, and not
throw the responsibility and cost of. sup?
port upon those who have been deprived
of their labor. The probabilities are
that the bill when introduced will be
smothered In committee, but if it should
ever get into the'IIousc for [discussion, it
will bring on es lively times "as were en?
gendered by the Lodge (lection bill.
The speech of ex-President Cleveland,
in which he stronuly criticised the Demo?
cratic platform of last year, Is regarded
by the party leaders in Washington as
equivalent to a bid for the Presidential
nomination of the gold wing of the Dem?
ocratic party in 1900. His speech occa?
sioned very little comment beyond the
statement that he would again be a can-,
didate for the Presidency. Senator Jones,"
of Arkansas, chairman of tho Democratic
national committee said: "Some of the
gold Democrats will remain in the Re?
publican party,and the others will return
to us. It will not. be a distinct factor in
1000. It is too enrly'to predict what pro?
portion will renew their allegiance to
Democratic principles but I think a very
considerable "number. Those who are
willing to support ^Democratic principles
will be welcomed back. We shall be
cr'ad of the assistance of any man who be?
lieves as we do and votes with us; that is
sound Democracy. The gold Democrats
may not be permitted to vote at the pri?
maries in certain place.", but that is a lo?
cal matter which is determined by local
sentiment. Generally speaking, however,
the Democrats who left the party last
year because of the n-.rney question will
be permitted to identify 'themselves with
the organization again if they will sup?
port, our platform."
Without exception the lending Demo?
cratic Senators expressed the opinion
that ex-President Cleveland would ?Iis
cover that, by 1900, there will be no split
in the Democratic ranksVind that his crit?
icism of the Democratic and Republican
parties and his eulogy of the gold Demo?
crats will avail him nothing.

its Oldest Banking House Fails, With
Norfolk, April 28.?Business circles
wete .startled last night by the news of
the assignment 01 N. Burruss^Son & Co.,
one of the most prominent and widely
known banking firms in the South.
A deetl was filed at 7 o'clock transferr?
ing to Judge Theodore S. Garnett, as?
signee, all properties held by Captain
Burruss, individually or as a firm, to se?
cure creditors. The liabilities amount to
between #140,000 and #150,000, and the
assets are stated by the firm to he $400,
0Q? available, with nominal assets much
more. It is stated that the bank will pay
out even and this is probably a fact, as
most of the property transferred is valu?
able, which, under favorable conditions,
would probably realizo more than the
assets, fn addition to this, there is a
large amount of personal nroperty.
The assignees are instructed .to wind
up the business at once.
Captain Burruss gives as tho cause
hard times and great demand for money.
One hundred and. seventy-fivo thousand
has been withdrawn from the hank since
July 1. aim though offers of assistance
were received fr,om numerous hnnks at
home and abroad, including a stiO.OOO
offer from Richmond, it was deemed best
for tho protection of tho depositors, as
well as the firm, to assign at once, stich
action ultimately being inevitable.
The bank was established in 1S(!1, und
did an immense business. Its failure
wns ft surprise to every "one, as it was
considered one of the most substantial in?
stitutions of the sort in the country. It
is the largest bank failure here since the
noted Ilain Hank broke a decade ago. It
is impossible at present to estimate the
effect it will have upon the business here,
but It will be huge.
