Yesterday's Meetings Re?
markably Harmonious.
ItlaSaUl Tbat the D^legatet tu Today's
County ConveutloD Are Sollt! for
I.lbbey for tin- C'ougresMoual
Yesterday's Republican precinct
meetings in the two districts heard
from broke all political records in this
county in the matter of harmony.
They were impressively lamblike from
start to finish, and in many respects
reminded one of so many saintly Dun
kur.ds assembled in solemn conclave?
begging pardon of the Dunkards. After
all, .however, it was not at all strange
that; the dove of factional peace should
hov?r over the day's proceedings. As
the jmatter in hand was a Wise affair
it was deemed the part of wisdom to
secure a sinch upon brotherly love,
whloti was very successfully accom?
plished iby placing the meetings in the
I hand's of competent men.
Th& Hampton convention was held in
i Samjritan Hall, on King street, and,
I consl?ering the unusual hour at which
it ws^s called?1 o'clock?was well at
I tendqd. It was called to order by An
I drew I Williams, chairman of the dis
i trict ^committee, who delivered a brief
I address which was well received. R.
Watsbn then placed Thomas Kennedy
I in nomination tor permanent chairman,
' making, in the course of his remarks,
J a number of happy hits which brought
'down! the house. No other name'was
presejnted and Kennedy received the
I unanimous vote of the body. R. W.
Browjn was elected secretary. A com?
mittee of live \yas then appointed to
recommend six delegates to the county
convention, and after an absence of
ten njiinutes reported the following
namefe: T. H. Kennedy, M. T. Walker,
I. T. ?Tones, Andrew Williams, R. Wat?
son amd Robert Brown. The report was
adopted without dissent, and with it
the wlork of the meeting ended.
Befolre the convention adjourned,
I howevler, ringing speeches were made
by Anjdrew Williams, William Graves
I and RJ Earle Kohl, a visiting Republi?
can from Pennsylvania. The speech of
the Peimsylvanian was interesting. He
said hi had never been in the South
until me stepped from the steamer at
Fort ifvonroe yesterday morning. His
home is in Bucks county, where he
had the/ honor of being the first negro
summoned in the State to sit on a jury.
Subsequently he held the office of
deputy sheriff. His speech was tempo
rate and| sensible.
The mlee'ting in. Wythe district was
held at! the polling place known as
Slash. J; H. Robinson pres.ued and
Justice T\ H. Saunders was made sec?
retary, f-jike the Hampton gathering
it was aiU affair of unruffled oarmony.
The attendance was large. But half
an hour hvas required for both speech
making sind the selection of delegates.
The following were chosen: E. G.
Jones, A.1, W. Truehart, T. H. Saun
rs, A. 42. Williams, Isaac B. Smith
I and John ?H. Gray.
The worl * of both meetings is favora?
bly eomirn >nted upon. While nothing
was said < :oncerning the choice of a
candidate for Congress, it is known
that the i nen selected to attend the
county cori vention today are for mr.
Libbey^ Ir i ease he cannot be nomina?
ted they will support Dr. Wise, al?
though it is said that several favor the
endorsement of Sir. Holland. The
names of trae Chesapeake district dele?
gates could) n'ot be learned, but it is
stated that Jthey also are supporters of
Mr. Libbey.f
Amusing ^Features of Judge Black
] stone's Docket.
In going! over the long list of un?
settled cas*9 on the docket of the Cir?
cuit Court,lieft as an unwelcome lega?
cy to Judtge Blackstone when he as?
sumed thej duties of the bench, that
popular jufrlst yesterday called several
which cneated considerable amuse:
ment. I
One of (them was a divorce case
which haci been filed years ago. The
name of JMr. Collier appeared as at?
torney for! one of the parties, and Judge
Blackston? asked what disposition of ft
he desirecy. The commonwealth's at?
torney wats, luckily, abseht, and a
friend perf-formed for him the embar?
rassing dfljty of explaining that both
parties to Jthe suit had been dead a long
time. Another case was that of a
couple wlfto had fallen out some eight
or ten yeritrs ago and quarreled them?
selves in'ttj) court. His honor's question
yesterday! as to what should be done
with the i case brought out the reply
that that( the couple had settled their
difference^ and ?are living together
again. Mseantime the suit for divorce
had been Jhummlng along -on legal time
from one '(term to another. A third case
of domes&ic infelicity was that of a
man who,} after entering suit, had ibeen
sent to tjhe penitentiary.

To the series of anecdotes about
Brig. Gen. "Andy" Burt's marksman?
ship now current, acorrespondentof the
Philadelphia Record, who .served un?
der that gallant soldier during the civil
war, adds a new one. It seems that
when Burt was a captain. In the Eigh?
teenth United States Infantry, in April,
1864, the companies had daily target
practice, the man making the best shot
of the day being excused from any
duty for twenty-four hours. One day a
six-footer from Indiana named Brown
made a bull's eye the first shot. "Load
your rifle for me," said Capt. Burt.
"and if I don't duplicate your shot I'll
excuse you from a camp guard for a
week." Brown, unobserved, tore two
cartridges and poured the charges of
both into his w.eapon, then dropped in
the two balls, point foremost, and ram?
med them home. Burt took the gun,
squatted down, resting his elbows oh
his knee and aimed long and deliber?
ately. When he pulled the trigger the
recoil threw him flat on his back.
When he opened his eyes the company
wag shouted: "Better lie still, Capt.
Burt: The d?d gun is kicking yet!"
And Capt. Burt's reply, according to
our correspondent, would have done
credit to "Fighting Bob" Evans.
I heard a good story about the -Prince

"Sir, have you ever ffhought of the
possibility of this becoming a republic,
and you losing your tltfc and income?"
"Yes, I have." said thfe Prince.
"And have you thouflfcit of what you
would do?" the young ?rd persisted.
"Why, yes," saidJ&A. Prince, "there
would always be adfnance to lecture in
America." jf

NEW YORK, Sept. 20.?The stock
I market today presented all the charac?
teristics of genuine reaction. Last
week's sharp recovery eliminated the
short interests very largely and the
forced liquidation of profits had been
mostly completed during the previous
continued decline. The market was
thus freed to a great extent from tech?
nical influences, and in condition to
respond to the prospects for general
business in the country. Its failure to
do so yesterday was attributed to the
unsettling Influence of the slump in
sugar. The bears were evidently tim?
id about continuing their campaign fur?
ther against sugar, and were Inclined to
cover so that this intluence toward re?
action was removed. Nevertheless.the
market drooped heavily toward lower
basis with one or two exceptions in
the list and closed on 'barely steady at
a level generally 1 per cent, "or more
below last night's level. The demand
for stocks was very small all day, and
prices went down easily under com?
paratively light offerings. Weakness
was practically manifest In tobacco,
the grangers and Pacifies. The sharpest
break in the market was coincident of
, the marking' up of call loans to 6 per
I cent. This flurry in the money market
was a disappointment to bull opera?
tors, especially in views of the engage?
ment of over $2,000.000 in gold for im?
port and mailing from the Treasury
Department yesterday of checks for in?
terest on registered four per cent bonds
due October 1, amounting to $4,1)10,000.
which are payable immediately. The
sub-treasury's debit balance at the
clearing house also ran up today' to
I $1,261,458. reflecting a large increase in
I government expenditures. Call money
in London is 1-2 per cent, against 6 per
I cent, here today. London discount is
3-4 to 1 7-8. against 4 pei? cent. here.
It is a fact that a part of the day's
gold engagements were made by bullion
dealers here who are shipping silver in
response to the existing active demand
attributed to Spanish account. There
is not sufficient demand for the ex?
change against silver shipment to make
a market, and there is * better profit
in importing gold. Exchange Is thus
I clearly demonstrated to be at the gold
import point, and the question arises
I what has been done with the country's
credits abroad that they do not bring
a larger gold movement. The imme
I diate future of the local money market
however, clearly toward greater
I ease.
Total sales of stocks today were 452,
i 100 shares.
