In all of the districts in Virginia the appointments of censuB enumerators have been announced, except In the eighth, and ! this district now hangs in the balance. | The darning of the mail' is said 16 be up j to Representative C. C. Carlin. Mr. Cat lin was -not in the city this mornliig. and ; it could not l?e learned who will be recom mended bye him instead of Raleigh T. Green of Culpeper. So far as known. Mr.- Catiin has not made any other recommendation, although it is more than probable that he will very shortly name some one else, inas much as it is stated Mr. Green will not be able to land - the job. It is reported today that Mr. Carlin and others Inter ested in the fight are in conference lit Washington, trying to agree upon a man for tiie position. Some say that Alter; Fletcher, jr., of Warrenton, Va., may be the man. All of this, however, is regarded as mere guesswork. The name of Robert Fraoer, also of Warrenton, has been prominently men tioned In connection with the position as lias also the name of Col. Granvlllo Gains of the same pkice. Edward Walton of Fairfax is also in the race. The number of receptive candidates in the tield is almost as numerous as the sands on the seashore, and the Indications are that the question of picking a man will prove a rather difficult one. Inasmuch as tnere Is a good bit of figuring to be done as to who would prove the most de sirable man. In the meantime, those after the Job are "up in the air," and word from Washington as to who the lucky man will be is awaited with no lit tle interest.
