POLITICS IN IHE STATE
Spokesman in Senate for Liquor and [tie Man Against It. LESNER LEADER FOR THE SALOONS While Judge Mann Will Head the Anti-Saloon Force Element?Contest In Senatorial Nomination in Han? over District Is a Warm One. RICHMOND, VA.. Aug, 20,?The Senate lit Its next session will have two men who Will represent distinct? ly opposing interests, sentiments ami policies. John A. Leaner, of Norfolk bounty, who has been nominated lor the Senate from that district, Is pres? ident of the Virginia Liquor Dealers' Association, and as Bitch is much In? terested III the enactment or legisla? tion that will give the men engaged In that traffic all the latitude possible under proper Control. Judge Mann, the great apostle of temperance, will lead the force in opposition to the wishes ami Ideas of the Norfolk coun? ty senator, He is an Old man at the helm ami has BllcCCCdcd in bringing nl'Mlt much of the restrictive legis? lation that now finds place on the statutes of the state. He is n good Speaker, clear headed and fond of fight. Judge Mann Is known far and wide as the foe of the "fake" clubs with which the state was at one limb Infested and which have been driven out of business to a great extent by measures which he championed in the Senate. Mr. I.osnes Is reputed to be a good business man, not given to much talk 1-..-. .>.n ', It said to be able to present his views on matters In a plain and straightforward way. He Is a man of affilrs am! 1- Interested in many en? terprises In Ms section. Wickharri-Grav.ttt Struqglc.

The opposition to him Is due wholly to his connection with the railroad In? terests, and while the people ?f Hie district have all confidence and re? spect for him, they do not hesitate to Hay that they would prefer that be were not identified with the transpor? tation company. Dr. CSrnvatt Is a retired naval offi? cer, lives In Caroline and Is a gen? tleman who stands well with the poo tile. He has beep making a still hunt for votes, has been on the stump and has debated the Issues. Ho Is not Inimical to the railroads, but takes the ground that a representative of the pudplo should mil be so surrounded that ho might bolnfliienced In bis yol lug on matters which affect the peo? ple. The question has been raised as to whether lie Is eligible for the place, the state constitution providing that no man who holds tiny position of trust or emolument under the F?d? eral government can hold office in Virginia. If ho should win the nomi? nation there Is good reason to believe that the right to sit as a member of the Senate will be raised and would have to l.'? adjudicated in tlV- courts. .Politicians ?Muess the belief that Senator Wlckhani will be returned to the Senate, and he has scores of friends who are ncttvoly at work in libs behalf.

If you weren't an Eugllsbuinn?" askeil the Scotchman, "I suppose I'd be a Scotchman," po? litely replied the Englishman. "What would you be If you weren't a Spaniard," demanded the Italian. "Oh, I guess I'd be an Italian," an? swered tho Spaniard. And so they went on making each other the same complimentary answer. At last came the Irishman's turn. "What would you be. If you Weren't an Irishman?" he wns asked, "Oh. I'd be ashamed of myself," he quickly answered. , Shortly after hearing tills anecdote I visited an old man named .lohn Gra? ham. Curious to know what answer I ho would make to the question, I re? lated the anecdote, "And now, Mr. Graham." I asked tho venerable Irish? man, "what would you 1m>. If yon weren't an Irishman?"

Standardization and the "One-Price" System Have Changed Business. The popular Idea Is that a depart? ment store is merely the grouping to? gether of a large number of separate businesses under one roof. Hut the experiment of assembling businesses In one store to minimize tho cost of rent and other fixed charges has been tried and discontinued as a failure The success of the department store rests upon an entirely different prin? ciple?upon Standardization. The de? partments are n?t Independent, hut highly specialized activities conform? ing to certain fixed laws that gov? ern tho whole establishment. The old way of doing business was simple and tin- methods were highly elastic. The proprietor bought as Cheaply us he could, initially in quan? tities Hint were measured only by his capacity lo sell and by his credit. Ho marked the goods in cipher, and left It to his clerk to got as large a profit as could be wheedled from the customer. Now the difference between ihe Old way and the new Is the differ? ence between the old-time workshop, where everything was made by hand, and the factory, where machinery does tho work. The machine makes articles exactly nllke in standard sizes and the cost of production Is enormously reduced, as every one knows. Probably the most Important factor in the development of tho depart' ment-storo machine Is the Idea of ','oho price articles marked In plain figures." This makes It possible for the goods practically to sell them? selves. The element of bargaining, Is almost wholly eliminated. The chief function of the clerk is to see that the machine works properly. I do not know who originated this Idea, There Is a story that a gloveiuaker lu Paris first put it Into execution an 1 grow rich thereby.
