THE BOWMAN CASE.
The case of the commonwealth vs. A.
Bowman & Sons, for violating the Sun?
day law by selling ^ice cream on Sunday,
was <1 ismiseed in the police court yester?
day morning. Tills case cannot be con?
sidered a test case in any sense,as the vio?
lation was not apparent. Some lady hud
gone to Messrs. Bowmnu's place on Sat?
urday and ordered and paid for some ice
cream, saying she would send for it the
n?".xt morning This is supposed to have
closed the transaction and the cream
only remaiued in Mr. Bowman's custody
at her risk. Had she nettlected^to call for
same and it should have melted, as a
matter of fact she would have been re?
sponsible. The question was raised as to
whether or not had the cream been de?
stroyed who would have sustained the
loss, but as this would necessarily em
brace another point of law It sould not be
takfii into consideration. The case was
dismissed by Justice. Wood, but it is un?
derstood that several more cases differing
in some particulars will* ho before him.

I have seen your published letter ad?
dressed to nie.
I am a Democrat and believe in the
principles of that party, and have hereto?
fore always acquiesced in the principles
announced in the platforms, and expect
to do so in the future*.
I am now a candidate for the Demo?
cratic nomination for member of "the
house of delegates of Virginia, and I dc
not propose to attempt to dictate the
platform which may bo adopted .by the
party at the Salem convention.
If the principles you adhere to should
be adopted as the principles of the Dem?
ocratic party, then I would consider It
my duty, if a candidate of that party, to
advocate the principles announced as its
If you desire to bind me to the support
of any principle, in the event that I am
nominated by the Democratic party, you
must submit such principle to the con?
vention of that party.
In conclusion. Since you have singled
me out from nmong all the candidates for
nomination and from the tone of your
letter it appears to mo that your letter
was not written with n bona fide and
honest intention of ascertaining my views
so as to support me, but for the purpose
of trying to injure my prospects of secur?
