SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS.
To tho Ed? tor of tho Timea: The ques
tiou of a Republican State convention
seems to bo settled in the affirmative.
MnuyRepubllcaus were not anxious to
push the convention 'agelast the wishes
of tho State committee. I am not aware
that I know personally a single member
of the State committee, consequently I
owo them no gtudge. 1 have no Rtudee
against the ndministrtaion and will do
all in my power to make this aduitnist ra?
tion a success, and furthermore I do not
believe Mr. 1 lamia understands fully tho
condition of matters In Virginia, and the
<mly grudge 1 bear hi in is that he Bbouhl
disappoint my estimation of him as a
politician by draggiug national affairs
into State politics.
I shall not qucstiou the motives of
either the State committee or Mr.
Lamb Jin Jthis matter ot convention, as
1 do not know them; but I believe if com?
parison he made Mr. Lamb's actions are
calculated to best subserve the interests
of the Republican party in Virginia. My
belief is founded upon the following
facts, which are important, not only for
the Republican party in this State, but
for all parties in every State, for should
my premises be correct, and this usurpa?
tion of authority have been passed over,
the people of this country would have n
precedent established which says they ara
not free and independent citizens, but in
the power of the national committee
who will dictate to the State committee
when anil how they shall vote and hold
Fact I. The Stato committee bad nc
authority granted them to say there
should not be a Stato convention. They
bad the power to call one, but refused
to do so, and because they thought it ex?
pedient not to nominntu. a State ticket
they disfranchised, as far as they pos?
sibly could, the Republican voters of
Virginia. Hail there been a convention
aud the sense of the convention been ad?
verse to the State ticket there could be
no question of legality, tbo delegates rep?
resenting the people.
The past intimidation of the negro
was not equal to this, for they could vcte
if they desired to run the risk; but here
our right of suffrage was completely
wiped away by the say-so of a* handful
Fact II. Tho net was illegal and un?
constitutional, even had the plan of or
Lrani/.ation given the State committee the
power It usurped.
Article 4, Section 2, first clause,
United. States constitution: "The citi?
zens of each State shall be entitled to all
the privileges and immunities o* citizens
of the several States." Section 4. "The
United States shall guarantee to every
State in this union a republican form of
government," etc., etc., and this cer?
tainly does not mean government by
State committees. They" also infringed
upon the fourteenth aud fifteenth amend?
Fact III. Not only then did this com
miteee assume power which it did uot
possess, but it actually assumed more
power than the Stato itself could assume.
Its action can therefore be unhesitat?
ingly stated as the greatest piece of po?
litical usurpation and cheek ever per?
petrated in this country.

Those who believe chronic diarrhea to
be incurable should read what Mr. P. E.
Grisham, of Caars Mills, La., has to say
on the subject, viz: "I have been a suffer?

war and have tried all kinds of medicines
for it. At last I found a remedy that
affected a cure and that was Chamber?
lains Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Reme?
dy." This medicine can always be de?
pended upon for colic, cholera morbus,
dysentery and diarrhoea. It is pleasant to

IIOTII WANTED THE BABE.
M. N. Shufllebarger was brought be?
fore Judge W. S. Stuart yesterday after?
noon ou a writ of habeas corpus, issued
at the tnstigntiou of Robt. Grubb. who
seeks to get possession of his llttlo daugh?
ter, the corpus delicti.
It appears tuat Bobort and bis wife
have agreed to disagree and ave living
apart and in separate localities Now
tae question arises, who is going to get
the "klil-"?the fruit of their wedded
life. Bobert wants the baby and his ex
wife Won't let him have it, and so Mr.
Grubb has appealed to the hustings court
to act as arbitrator.
Testimony was taken in the cnso yes?
terday afternoon as to which of the two
parties had the "sweetest" disposition
and which onejwould be bettered withjthe
delicti in their possession.
Judge Stuart deferred his decision un?
til to-day. When the court.convened this
afternoon the child was 'given into the
custody of. its father for the present.
Husband and wife have kissed and made
up and will live together in harmony. ?
