Washington, Sept. D.--The Washing t-E
Post prints tin1 following:
"For the Republicans to go Into the
Virginia, campaign this year would Im
?like playing the game of pol I lies with
loaded dice <>n the othei Bide. The cards
are all stacked against us.''
This remark, made by Col. ?lames 1).
Brady, one of the members of the Repub?
lican executive committee of Vlrgiula,
and a recognized leader of that 'party iu
the State, to n. Post reporter ".yesterday,
indicates that there is no disposition to
depart from the decision not to hold a
Republican convent ion in that State.
With Col. Brady was Gen. Para Aguew,
the chairman of the State committee.
They were couferring"over the Situation
in Vtrgiuin, with especial reference to
the legislative districts ,which can possi
blv be carried by anti Democratic
"There is not an intelligent man in pol
itics," cuulilined Col. Brady, "who does
not know that:hi elections in Virginia
are carried by frauds of the most o"tra
geous character. I do not assert this as
a Republican familiar with the politics
of tin1 State, but 1 refer to the interview
with Go". O'Ferrall which 'be Post re
centlf printed, and which, by the way,
was one of t he most 'nteresluig coutribu- :
l ions to political literature which I have j
seen of late. Gov, O'Ferrall practically
\ nilmIts that the Democratic party is a
'nluaer party.1 becatise ho shows that the
Democrats get their largest majorities in
the counties where the negroes have a
preponderance of votes."'
"Hut the Republicans made a light last,
venr, and the election laws were the same
then Its they are now:'" suggested the re?
"That is a very nat ural inquiry," an
swered Col. Hr.uly, ''and I am in a posi?
tion, l think, to answer Intelligently.
Let nie give you a bit of political history.
Immediately after the BOOliuution of .Mr.
Ai'cKinley at St. Louis 1 sat down and
wrote to him, gr.inu over the whole
ground and strongly urging lb.it uo cam
paign be made'in the State liecause of
the unfairness of the election laws. That
let ter was taken up and considered by
the Republican national executive com
mit tee, and it was agreed that there
should be no light iu Virginia?that tlia
State should lie allowed to goby default."
"Hut that idea was afterward aban?
"Yes; new conditions arose. Mr. In
galls, the president of the Chesapeake
and Ohio railroad, appealed to take a
part in the campaign, and 'many piomi
nent Democrats, such as K. ('. Veuable,
.Alexander Hamilton, Gen. Logan and
others, gave assurances that there would
be fair elections in Virginia. We went,
therefore, into the light, backed oy the
powerful inll-ence exerted by the rail?
roads, express and insurance corpora?
tions, bankers, merchants, and all others
who were openly against the Bryau ticket.
We saw that the Democrats themselves
were workin" to defeat Bryan. Lader
these conditions I recommended a change
to the Republican national committee and
suggested a campaign. It turned out that
all these influences were not suflleiently
strong to secure an honest election in any
section of the black district, and by
frauds, which have been proved in the
three contested election cases, the State
was given to Bryan by about HI,000 ma
joriy. If we could not carry the State
under all those .favorable conditions is it
reasonable to expect that we can carry it
this year, with the Democrat ic machine
in full force anil operation:' 1 say it is
' It would be absolutely foolish to at?
tempt it," a.ided .dr. Aguew.
"There is another thinir," continued
Col. Brady. "Every practical politician
knows that it is utterly useless to make
a campaign without money. I have bad
as mi eh to do, I thin<C,Its any man iu the
Stute for the past twenty-live years with
ihn raising of funds to pay the legitimate
pobtieal expenses of Republican cam?
paigns. Northern Republicans have come
to my assistance whenever 1 have ap?
pealed to them. I do not feel justified In
Koing to them attain and asking them to
contribute to another campaign in Vir
ghtin, because I feel satisfied, with the
knowledge I have of existing conditions,
we might as well take their money and
throw it into the Potomac river."
"The very fact." suggested Mr, An
new, "that the Democratic press is'urg
inn a convention is another good reason
why we should not hold one. The advice
of your enemies is the advice, to avoid."
"Certainly," assented Col. Brady, "but
the Democrats would liketoseea Hcpuh
lies it ticket in the field, for then they
would have an excuse for soliciting
lunds. They cannot get any money if
they have the field to themselves. Our
participation in the campaign, too,would
help them, because it would solidify their
party. You noticed that Gov. O'Ferrall
siid be would not vote the ticket unless
there is Republican opposition. We want
ti keep i be Democrats disintegrated if we
can We cannot do it if we ^o into the
campaign and drive them together, or if
we give them an opportunity to raise the
color question, as they would do.''

Morgan and Quay, whe are expected to
arrive here soon on a tour ol investigu
tion. They sav that Senators White, of
California, and Thurston, of Nebraska,
who will lead the ti^ht against annexa
tion in Congress this winter, will also
visit Hawaii and attend the mass-meet lug
of natives which, it. is alleged by the an
nexntionists, has been called for the pur?
pose of convincing the Senators that the
natives bitterly oppose annexation.
It is stated that Senators White and
Thurston will superintend the drnftiug
of a monster petltiou to Congress, in ?vhlch
the Hawalians will assert, that the gov
eminent was torn from them through the
action of the American Minister Stevens.
It is n'so alleged that the mass-meeting
will be conducted entirely by Hawaiians
and will be made as dramatic aspossible.
The idea is to work upon the sympathies
of Senator Morgan and to pursUHiie him,
if possible, that tin- natives have been
deprived of lands mid power by a handful
of rich and powerful whites, hac ked by
an American minister.
It is believed that the ex-Queen may
I arrive on tho same steamer as the Sena?
tors, and that, she will address the p-opte
at the mass-meeting.
