The report that General Weyler is to be

the public loses one of its greatest enter?

two way of meeting a deficiency in the
taxes, one by decreasing expenses, the
other by Increasing taxes,anil he declared
his belief that the pending tnrifEJdll

$450,000,000. The Senator knows what,

Poor Greece has been nearly blotted out
from the pages ol nations. She declared
war against the Turk's and would have
done great things if her soldiers had
been as brave in front of the enemy as
they were a long distance, off. Hut for
the intervention of the powers, the Turks,
would easily have capturedj Athens.
They proved t:> the world that as soldiers
they were far superior in discipline and
courigeto the Greeks, and that, but for
the international policy of the great
powers, they would have walked over the
I Grecian nrchtpelago without kt or hin
j drance. Before they begin another war
the Creeks had better count the cost.
When it comes to saying exactly what
he means ami in language such as none
but he can command. Senator John W.
Daniel, Virginia's pride, cannot be ex?
celled. In n recent speech on the Cuban

can party for its inactivity as follows:
"What has become of that resolution:
"It has gone to the tomb of the Capitol,
to the great political morgue on Capitol
hill, where silent spectres Hit around the
ball once occupied by representatives.
But, perhaps, I am treading on delicate
ground. I can only regret the degenera?
tion: and of the dead let me speak no 111.
Vet I can only think of the whilom bouse
of representatives as the poet laureate of
England thought of the body of the
dead?as 'the dark, deserted ".house where
life and thought no longer dwell.' "

To the Editor of Tho Times: IQ casting
around for n scund, practical roan suita?
ble to represent this district In the legis?
lature, n man whose record as a Demo?
crat Is unsullied; one who has the confi?
dence of the masses; a practical business
man; one with a clean moral character,
who will draw to us the farming inter?
ests; 1 find such a man in \V. G. Woods,
I of Bonsucks, HoanoKe county. Garrison
I Woods is a man of sound practical judg?
ment, quick to grasp a question, enter?
taining, clear and pungent in.debute, a
farmer who tills Iiis soil, harvests his
crops, working side oy side with his em?
ployes. Thus be knows ihe needs of the
farming and laboring classes. Mr. Woods
is a popular man with tho masses, rich
or poor, white or black; a friend to the
needy, a courteous Christian gentleman;
one who would faithfully perform any
duty imposed upon him; a man of strict
integrity, outspoken in ids convictions; a
man who would never "bend the supple
hinges of the knee that thrift may come
Democrats should look well about them
this time aud select meu who can win.
Nominating is not electing, as we Demo?
crats fouud out to our sorrow two years
ago. Place before us good clean, sober,
conscientious, fearless men,men in whom
all classes can take an interest. I be?
lieve we hava such a mau in Garrison
Woods. He is popular with Republicans
as well as Democi ats.^und recognizing
the fact that a straight Republican ticket
cannot succeed iu this district, Mr.
Woods will have the support of a goodly
number of Republicans.
The'man whom the citizens of Roanoke
city may select could not have a stronger
man on the ticket with him. As a can?
vasser be is the peer of any man. He is
a bard worker and a man loved and re?
spected by all who know him and his
cauvn.ss will be a thorough, close nnd
telling one. Democrats of Roanoke
should see that both candidates on the
ticket are strong men and in November
we will win. Let one of the candidates
be'Garrison Wcods, of Honsacks.
Sir. Woods stands squarely on the Chi?
cago platform and is a staunch friend of
Maj. .lohn W. Daniel, and wo can safely
say that no man that isu"-t 'need offer for
the Democratic nomination from Roi

From the Boston Adverliser: One rea?
son why tue American army of tramps is
so large is thai, the American communi?

tramps to live in idleness. In 'almost

parts of the West and the South, the
average tramp has IlttleTdilTlculty iu se?

can communities generally treat 'ramps
as the criminals they are, and make the
punishment for vagrancy imprisonment
