NOT ON THE BALLOT.
Rev. D. C. Moomaw, Populist, inde?
pendent candidate to he ?oted for at the
approaching November election,was seen
yesterday by a Times reporter and he
seems very sanguine over the result of
the battle royal which takes place two
weeks hence. Mr. Moomaw is at a loss
to calculate the vote of Roanoke city, but
be says from the assurances received
from voters in the county that he will
lead tin-contest there. His name will
not appear on the official ballot In Craig
county owing to the fact that his cert iII
cate did not reach the clerk of the Craig
county court until the 14th instant
when it should have been in his hands on
the thirteenth to come within the provis?
ions of the law. Mr. Moomaw alleges
that this condition of a If airs is due to tue
negligence of the postmaster at New Cas?
tle, who is said to have misplaced the
registered letter containing the certifi?
cate until it was too lato to have It certi?
fied and placed on the'hallot. He now
hopes to overcome this misfortune by
the provision in the law which allows the
erasure uf tt i.ame already Jou the ballot
and the substitution of another in its
stead. Mr. Moomaw is sending circulars
broadcast over Craig county instructing
his friends who desire to vote for him
what to dc on the day of electicn in order
to have the.'r ballots counted.
