FEDERAL PATRONAGE AT STAKE.
THE LYNCHBURG CONVENTION
AN EFFORT OF LAMB WING TO
SHOW THE ADMINISTRATION
THAT THEY REPRESENT THE
RANK AND FILE OF VIRGINIA
REPUBLICANS ? CONGRESSMAN
YOBT SAID TO FAVOR A STATE
Richmond, Sept. 28.?The Republican
situation iti this State is very much
mixed, Hurt as the time for holding the
Lamb convention draws near the divid?
ing lines botwc'e i the contending factions
become more; (dearly marked.
The so-called "pie counter" faction,
bended by ex-Congressman Uowdeu have
decide 1 that this Oeing an oil year in na?
tional politics [the faltlful In Virginia
should be allowed to rest from labor Hud
enjoy their well-earned spoils.
On the other hand, the Rcpul Items of
the Lamb faction, who are still shiver?
ing from the chilly reception accorded
them by the ad ministration, seem to
think that the only thing fur them to do
in order to obtain iccognition is to
"whoop 'em up" and show the powets in
Washington that they represent tho sen?
timent of the rank and lile of the Repub?
lican.-, in tue State.
Between these two factions Congress?
man Walker is apparently anxious to re?
main strictly neutral. It is generally be?
lieved, however, that he woub' be glad
of the opportunity to bo the nominee of
both factions for the 'governorship, and
thinks if bo could secure their 'combined
support he. would stand a fair ein nee of
carrying the State. General Walker,
???ore than atiy other Republican in the
Stale, would attract the votes of Popu?
lists, and by trading the State legislative
ticket for irubernatortal votes, be would
undoubtedly make a strong light. Gen?
eral Walker, however, has gone on record
as being willing to abide by the decision
o! the State committee at the Lynchburg
The Bowen-Agnew faction are bend?
ing every eOort to make the Lamb con?
vention, which meets October 5, appear
ridiculous In the eyes of the administra?
tion at Washington, niid to this end are
not only using their "pull" on Federal
patronage, but have drawn a direct ap?
proval of 'their course from Chairman
Han na in the form of a letter approvinir
the selection of Mr. Park Agnewas chair?
man of the Republican Statu committee.
Congressman Yost lias been identified
with the Lamb wing as far as the ap
pioval of^the Idea to Dominate a State
ticket goes, and will probably attend tho
convention on the 5th.
Until recently it seemed a foregone con?
clusion that Maj. Warren S. Lurty would
lie the nominee of the Lamb faction for
the governorship, but it is now said that
his circular letter to the neuro element
of the party lias spoiled his chances, and
that. Hon. Pat McCaull, ofCulpeper, will
be selected to bead the ticket.
The ticket which the convention will
put in the field cannot now command ti
large vote even with tho Populist sup?
port, which at present there is n ? pros
peel ofjobtaining. This being the case it
is not 'inite clear what Colone; Lamb
expects to gain.
The efforts of the "organization" are
to be directed against the State legisla?
tive ticket of the Democrats. The riomi
nees of the Democrats for both branches
of the lecislature are largely new men,
ind the situation in some districts ad?
mits of a chauce foe tho opposition, pro?
vided a fusion of the Republicans and
the Populists can be effected.

jubilant over the prop pec ts for this year
anil there is uo doubt but that it will bt>

foundation of the college.
Only 11C studentscan bo accommodated
at the institution and engagements have
already been miide^fnr 100; beside there
aro about fifty day pupils who go frcm
their homes in und around the ci ty.
Twenty-three States are represented iu
the college this year and beside the
Southern States there are students from
Maine, Vermont. Uhodo Island, Pennsyl?
vania, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana and Colo?
Tho school has never bad an agent iu
tho Held and all the students have been
secii'ed either throuuh .otters or through
its reputation established with former
pupils. The splendid location and 'mod?
ern equipments nud conveniences are al?
ways favorable when parents or guar?
dians can be 'nduced to visit the school.
A well-known gentleman from Louisiana

BENEFIT, AND ARE PAYING OFF
THEIR OLD DEBTS.
Washington, Sept. 28.?According to
tre rapid increase in prices [of. vegetable
products, potatoes, onions, cabbage, and
other things of a like nature, the fanners
would have made much more money by
raising potatoes than tbey would by plant?
ing wheat and receiving a dollar a bushel
for it. Within the past few creeks house
wives all over the city nave uoticed the
rapidity with which the price of potatoes
has risen. Last year this staple article
of food could have been bought for 85
cents a bushel, and now they are bring?
ing from ill) coots to $1.25.
The rise in price has been caused by
the shortness of the crop and the fact
that there will be a foreign demand, and
it is expected by the commission mer?
chants of the city that thousands of bush?
els will be shipped to Inland and toother
European countries. The crop in New
York is almost u total failure, while ?hat
in Virginia and Maryland Is not as largo
as last year. One year ago the farmers
of the neighboring States were feeding
potatoes to their stock, because tlie price
was so low that it did not pay them to
ship them. Xow they are digging up
even the smallest and sending them to
market, where they get from 5(1 to Co
cents a bushel. On an acre of good land
from!800 to 325 bushels of potatoes can
be raised, while the same soil will not
produce more than twenty bushels of
wheat. Many of the farmers and truck
ors did not plant so many potatoes this
year as last, because they figured that
the price would be even lower. Those
who di'1 plant are now congratulating
themselves, besides lifting mortgages ami
buying agricultural implements.
Dealers expect that the prices will rise
even higher before the coming of Christ?
mas. Scotland usually exports potatoes
to this country, but this year there is a
market In Ireland for all they can pro
duce and consequently none will imivo
from the land of "Bobby" Burns.
This increase in cost is not aloue no?
ticeable in potatoes, hut in all other
products. Apples, which last year were
selling for 75 cents and $1 n barrel, now
bring $2.25 and $2.50. The price on
onions lias doubled, and now they are
woith $1.75 and $2 a bushel. Celery
from Michigan and Ohio has kept pace
with the increase in other food products
and is now worth 50 and 75 cents a dozen
btalks, as against 25 cents last year.
The celery ciop is also short and the
prices may get so high that many a
Thanksgiving dinner will be eaten with?
out it. Even the plebeian cabbage may
become a delicacy. The price now Is $1
a bundred, as against $1 and $1.11) last
The luscious tomato, although its reg?
ular season has nearly slosed, is right in
line with the advance In price. The sup?
ply last year was such that they had to
be sold for almost nothing, while this
jeiir they, too, are bringing in a hand?
some profit both to the producer and re?
With the advance in grain several
months ago the price of beef went up,
and there is little or no probability of its
falling. Maryland and Virginia farmers
are realizing a handsome profit now in
sidling calves nnd'pork products. During
the summer little or no advance was
made in the price of pork, owing to the
small demand for it, but with the coming
of cooler weather the little shout will
bring nearly as much as did the prize
porker last winter.
Dealers in fertilizer and agricultural
implements say that they have received
little or no benefit from the high prices
paid for farm produces. In the opinion
of the dealers of these goods, i he fann?
ers are using the most of the money real?
ize'1 during the past summer in paying
off. their old debts, and are not contract?
ing new ones. Others have allowed
themselves and their families to enjoy
vacations at the various State fairs and
other places of interest.

HOW THE FIGHT STANDS.
The chance of the Orioles b?ating out
the Bcnneuters and becoming champions
for the fourth successive time are uow
very slim. They must wie the whole
seties with Washington, providing the
Bostons lose one to Brooklyn, or if the
players from the Hun lose two games to
the Trolley Dodgers, the Baltimores may
lose one game to the Senators and still
come first by three points
If Boston should win all three games
from Brooklyn and Baltimore should
take the series of fcur frcm Washington,
the percentages would be: Boston, .712;
Should Boston win but one and lose
two and. Baltimore win three and lose
one the clubs would stand: Boston, .097;
If Boston should win two out of three
and Baltimore two out of four then they
would stand: Boston, .705: BaltitLore,
Should Boston win two out of three at
Brooklyn and Baltimore three out of four
with Washington, the resu'ts would he:
Boston, .705; Baltimore, .700.
If Boston loses one and Baltimore wins
all four, Baltimore will win the pennant
