THAT THE TICKETJ WILL BE TY?

TYLER WILL TRY TO SUCCEED
SENATOR MARTIN, THUS LEAV?
ING THE GUBERNATORIAL
CHAIR FREE FOR MR. ELLYSON.
Richmond, Auk. '0.?(Special.)?It Is
thought there 'will be a .ballot taken at
the Roauoke convection. Mr. Carter
Glass will nominate Major Tyler, Col.
Boykin will place Mr. Ellyson in nomina?
tion and the other candidates will be
nominated. When the point in the vote
is reached where Major Tyler receives
the nomination, Mr. H. B. Boudar, who
heads the lists of Mr. Ellyson's delegates
will rise and move to make Major Tyler's
Regarding the chairmanship of the
par'y, it has been stated"that the First
and Third Congressional^districts are al?
most unanimously in favor of Mr. Elly?
son, and it has been learned'that he is
especially favored by the delegations
from the country.
Captain William M. Billard, of the
capitol police department,may go to Roa?
uoke as a Halifax delegate. He is having
a master budge made. It will consist of
red, white an?1 blue ribhon, the streamers
being two feet long, on the red ribbon
being the name of Major J. H?ge Tyler.
On the white will be the Chicago plat?
form. The blue ribbon will bear the
name of Senator John W. Daniel. Cap?
tain Dillard will attach thu ribbons ton
large picture of William J. Brynn.
Colonel Jpines D. Brady will come here
from Petersburg to-morrow to coufnr
with the committee on commerce and*
commercial usages of the chambc o*
commerce. Mr. Leon Wallerstein, chair?
man of that committee, in reply to a
communication of Colonel Brady asking
for an opportunity for the citizens of
Richmond to lay before him their rea?
sons for desiring the retention of the in?
ternal revenue oflice here, this morning
received a letter from the new collector
appointing to-morrow as the time at
which he would be pleased 'to meet the
city representatives. Gentlemen repre?
senting the tobacco and liquor trade will
also be present. The place of meeting
has not been determined.
A special telegram from Washington
to-day contains a statement to the effect
that Mr. Ellyson would be nominated for
lieutenant-governor of Virginia: that
when the time comes for the election of a
United States Senator to succeed Senator
Martin that Tyler would stand before the
legislature?if not an active candidate,at
least willing to accept the seat in the
United States Senate. He further stated
that Tyler, being a most popular man in
Virginia,would have no trouble in being
elected Senator to succeed Martin, and
that Ellyson lwing lieutenant-governor
would become governor of Virginia. The
uentleman who gare the information said
that nothing could 'preveut Tyler's flec?
tion to the Senate except an unequivocal
and unevasive declaration from Ellyson
not permitti if; his name to go on the
Democratic ticket for lieutenant-governor.
Friend" of Senator Martin when ques?
tioned last night concerning the reported
candidacy cf Tyler for the Senate said that
they did not believe. Tyler has any such
aspirations, but that If be did they could
not be gratified. As one Democrat put it:
"The governor comes from a wrong sec?
tion of the State to have sensational aspi?
rations. He is from Pulaski ccunty,
which is located in a Republican Con?
gressional district. It is hardly probable,
that a Democratic legislature would re?
ward a Republican district by giving it
a United States,Senator. The next Demo?
cratic Senator from Virginia must como
from a rock-ribbed Democratic district."

THE TREASURY ROBBED.
A Negro Laborer Gould Not Resist
Washington, Aug. 6.?During the pro?
gress of the count and weighing of the
silver in the vaults or the Treasury to -
j day incident to the transfer of the Gov?
ernment funds to the new United States
Treasurer, Thomas Martin, of this city,
a laborer engaged in handling the bags,
was arrested upon a charge of abstract
i ins silver from the vaults. A shortage
of $10 was found 'last Monday in the
weigh* of one of the bags. Another
shortage of $IS was found tD-day.
Martin was suspected, and a watch
was put upon him when he left the
vaults during the noon rest. After leav?
ing the vault Martin went ii-to the base?
ment, where there is a pile of firewood,
and hid the eighteen silver dollars among
the sticks. As soon as he left the cellar
the light was turned on and the money
discovered. The case was put into the
hands of Chief Hnzen, of the secret ser?
vice, who placed Martin under arrett and
took him to bis office,where Martin made
a written confession. Slugs of lead were
put into the bags to balance the weight
of ?he coin abstracted.
Martin has been a helper at eight
weighings of the Treasury cash, and
never before has been suspected of wrong
doitift The whole amount taken was$26,
of which Martin had spent $0.50 , the
remainder being recovered.
The penalty in this case is a term in
the .penitentiary of from one to ten years
and a line of not more than $5,000, or
Wheat and Cotton Helping to Restore
New York, Aug. 0.?Dun's Review of
Trade to-morrow will say:
Last month was the first in four years
in which the volume of business reported
by clear Ins houses was larger thau the
I same month since 1802. Telegraphic dis?
patches from all parts of the country this
week show gratifying improvements,
partly due to the large yield of wheat and
the good prices being obtained for the
rcrop, though the crop will probably not
be as large nor are the prices thus tar as
high as they were In 1802.
Cotton orices are higher and the yield
will probably bo larger than prevailed in
lfcQ J. Other farm products are realizing
good prices. The possible decrease in
the yield of corn may help^tbe market to
dispose of the enormous surplus brought
over from last year.
It is the wtong season to expect much

material increase in the number of hands

THERE IS NO DISSENSION IN THE
DEMOCRATIC PARTY IN OHIO.

FIGHT F0R;A GREAT PRINCIPLE.

WasinhgtoD, Aug. C?Gen. A. J. War
ner, of Ohio, tb.3 great npostle of bimet?

to-day. lie brings the most encouraginQ
reports from Ohio about the condition of
affairs there and the approaching .cam?
fc>"It is all nonsense," said he, "to talk
about there being any d'ssenslon *in the
Democratic party in Ohio. 'We are mak?
ing a great fight for a great principle,
and I know of no man in the whole Suite
who last year had his shoulder to the
wheel who is uot now actively and enthu?
siastically cugaued iu the same good
work. I have beeu over a great deal of
the State and talked with the people, and
I am confident that where there were
four votes for Bryan In 18915 there will be
five, and in many places six and seven,
"I kno*v personally of many instances
where Republicans were afraid to cut
loose from party tie? and [vote for free
coinage because tiny were not. able to
convince themselves that the currency
and not the tariff was what was causing
our depressed condition. These men
were coerced by the banks aud given all
sorts of campaign promises. They have
seen how these promises were redeemed;
they have witnessed the self-evident fact
that the "lection of n Republican Presi?
dent did no bring good times, but, that
on the contrary times are harder aud
prices are lower for what they produce,
and they will now soou be [compelled to
pay more tor what they buy. These men
were deceived once, but they will not be
deceived again. They are coining over

When asked bow the gold Democrats
would figure in the election Mr. Warner
"There were some gold Democrats in
the last election who believed that the
policy represented by Mr. Bryan was not
the proper one, but tbeso men have seen
the error of their ways and are returning
to tho old party. Whenever they come
and ask for admission we ireoly and
gladly grant it, but we tell them they
must come in with us and be one of us.
The doors are always open for them, but
those doors swing inward and not out?
ward. They must not expect us to go to
them: they must come into the fold, and
if they do this, we consider them good
Democrats once more. We have taken
in hundreds of these gold Democrats.
The accessions to our ranks by the return
of our erring brethren and by the accept?
ance of the faith of free silver by tho Re?
publicans who can no longer support the
policy of that party has swelled our vot?
ing strength immensely, aud I make the
prediction that we will carry tho State
and elect the legislature by a very com?
"The Democrats are united in fighting
for tho common cause. We are not torn
by clissension, but every man is rallying
around a banner that represents a grand
principle, and when the vote is cast this
year it will be found that tho Democracy
of Ohio has spoken in nu uncertain tones
as to what she believes the policy of the
future ought to be.
"In the camp of the Republicans there
is confusion and wrangling. Mr. Banna
is unpopular and his candidacy is not
taking well with the rank and file of the
party. The appointments from that
State made by the administration are a
disappointment, and have caused wounds
that cannot l>e healed. If any cue hero in
the East believes there is not an irre?
pressible conflict between Senator Banna
anil Senator Foraker, let him go through
the State, and he will bo convinced
otherwise. That conflict does exist and
it is cropping out everywhere. The Sena?
tor himself does not seem to lie taking any
part in it, but everywhere the Foraker
element is unsheathing its knife for tho
man who is trying to become the boss in
Ohio Republican politics. Mr. Banna
is already feeling the effect of the fight
being made in his own camp, and it
will work to his undoing before the cam
paii. n is over.
"Taking the situation in ourStato from
any point of view the outlook is good for
Democratic success and the election of
our candidate for governor and of the
whole legislative ticket. Mr. Chapman
is an admirable candidate. Ho voted for
free s'lver with me thirty odd years ago.
Be has always been a consistent fieo sil?
ver advocate and is very popular among
the people. There are no thorns in our
pathway, and I look for a triumphant
victory when the votes are cast."

AUOUT SIXTY-FIVE YEARS AGO.
LONG RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF
THE [ABLEST LAWYERS AT THE
A telegram was received in this city
yesterday morning from R. Carter Scott,
son of Major R, Taylor Scott, attorney
gcueral of Virginia, announcing the
death of his father which occurred dur?
ing the night previous. The telegram
was addressed to Robert E. Scott, of
this, city, a half brother of the deceased
The death of Major Scott was unexpect?
ed, although it was generally known that
he was a very ID man, and had been so
for some time.witb typhoid fever.but the
general impression was that be was bet?
Mr. Scott leaves a family consisting of
his wife, a son, R. Carter Scott, and two
daughters, Misses Rosa .and Mazie. His
wife was a daughter of Major Richard
Heniy Carter, of Fauquior county, who
was appoiutcil consul to Panama under
the administration of Presideut Hayes.
Ho died at his post of duty and the re?
mains were brought back to Virginia and
buried near his home.
Deceased was :t son of Robert E. Scott,
of Warrentou, one of tbe best known and
most prominent lawyers iu his section of
the State. Bis father was married three
times, first to a "Miss Taylor, the daugh?
ter of Robert S." Taylor, of Alexandria.
Maj. R. Taylor Scott, the subject of this
sketch, was the only child by this mar?
riage. After the death of hl<> mother,
?Major Scott's father again'marrted, this
time a Miss Morsnn, of Richmond. As
a result of this marriage there were
four children, a son, John Scott, who is
now dead and three daughters, two of
whom are living. Bis second wife after?
wards died, when bo married ibe daugh?
ter of James Lyons, of Richmoud. His
third and last wlfo was tho mother of
Robert E. Scott, of this city, and of three
daughters, 0110 of them, the wife of ex
Congressmau Elliott, of the Richmoud
district. At the time of his death Major,
Scott was about 05 years of age. He was
a member of the law firm of Brooke &
Scott, this firm being recoguir.ed as one
of the ablest in the State. When the
war broke oat ho went forth to battle for
the principles his State hsd espoused, go?
ing into tho war as a captain. By his
soldierly bearing and executive ability
he was advanced to the rank of major. *
After tho war was over he was made a
member of tho constitutional convention
which framed tho present constitution
under which wo live. He served two
terms in the State legislature aud eight
years auo was elected attorney-genera'
under the administration of ex-Governor
McKinney. Pour years aftei when Gov?
ernor O'Ferrall was elected, Major Scott
was re-elected f'?r another term of four
years to tho office which he hail so accept?
ably filled, and were it not for his death
his name would have gone before the
Roanoke couventlon next week for re
nomlnation with a fair show of having
the honor again thrust upon him. His
death will somewhat alter the political
situation when tbe convention assembles,
ds it was believed by many that he would
bo the nominee for the attorney-general?
Robert E. Scott,brother of the deceased
was not ir. the city when the telegram
came, but it was forwarded to him iu
