Governor Swanson Expected to At tsch His Signature to the Local Measure Today. i _ IT MS BEES HUSHED THROUGH Next Move in the Proposition to Take the West and Eaot Ends Into Hamp? ton Will be Made in the Elizabeth City County Circuit Court This Morning. The bill relating to tho Increasing Of the liiuitii of town and eitles- of the second class in Virginia, which was framed \>y Hampton men, and which Is of great InterCBt here, WAS passed by the Senate In Hlchtnond yesterday and now nil that in lacking to make It a general law is the signature ot Governor Claude A. Swanson, The bill was Ir.h-t week unanimously pass? ed by the lower branch of the legisla? ture and only two members of the Bona to voted against its adoption when the bill was up for passage yes etrday. The nowa that the annexation bill bad been passed by the Senate and now only awaits the signature of Qov trnor Swanson was received hero diortly after noon yoHtorday in a men sage from State Senator Saxon W. Holt. The information created the greatest Interest and there was a gen? eral feeling of elation among the peo? ple who desire to see Hampton streich out her protecting arm und take In the Kast anil West Ends. That this will be done the most ardent antl-ahnoxatlonlst does- not doubt. Senator Holt, following the good example of Delegate Harry It. Hous? ton, got a suspension of rules In the Sennte as soon as the committees on towns and eitlen made a favorable re? port upon the adoption of tho bill and by this means had the measure en tetcd Into law. Governor SWAnson la expected to alflx his nlgnnture to the bill today and an the measure becomes a law Im? mediately upon Itti passage the limit tor annexation has been won. Town Attornoy William 0. U Talla ferro, representing tho council of the 'own of Hampton, will today ninue formal application to Judge Black 'tone, in the Circuit Court, asking that an order t? entered requesting lovornor Swanson to designate some lodge to conio hero and hear the ap? plication for the extension of the limits of the town. Judge Blackstonc Is disqualified by the law from sitting In the ease and tho motion by Mr. TallnterrO today Is In keeping winl "he usual procedure In such matters. The court will simply enter an order informing Governor Swanson mat the court la not qualified to nit In tho annexation"enso and asking that some Judge from unother community bo sent to hear the cause. Just when Governor Swanson will name the Judge cannot be surmised. He will probably do xo at once now that there Is to be no UrIu on the proposition to make Hampton a city of 8,000 ASK THE LEGISLATURE FOR THE PROPER AUWORITY Wr.r Departmnt Decides to Reclaim 31 Acres of the Upper Mill Crock Property.

Believes] That It Is the Great Issue. ME FOR DEIViGGRftTS 10 IUITE Have the Same Opportunity That the Rcpublicanc Had in 1896 and Which They Q .asped With Avidity?Tariff Child of Trusts. (By Associated Press) NASHVILLE THNN.. Jan. 22?Jud s?in Harmon, former nltorriy general of tho United status, was the princi? pal speaker here to.light at a Bryan meeting. He spoke In part as fol? lows: The result of elections docs not de? pend alone on tho Ideas advanced by the contending parties, but one of them sometimes holds advantages over the other which help to turn the scale. The Republicans have during tho last twelve years had two such advantages over tho Democrats. The first Is a false pretense which circumstances have enabled them to use with effect. Just fittcen years ago the wolf waft1 at the door of a Republican adminis? tration. The times wore bad nnd get ting worse. The public funds were rapidly disappearing. A large amount of bonds Were engraved and on the joint of being Issued, but It was fi? nally managed to skimp along through the few remaining weeks. Then tho Democrats took charge. Vhey found the bottom of the treas? ury staring tit them and this pile of nice new bonds nil ready for use. \inl us the troubles Increased, and the crops failed, and the Income tax was overthrown, the Democrats hud ilnnlly to father those bonds' In order to maintain the credit of the country. Straightway, with the assurance which only Republican politicians can enrry off, they laid everything to thi: Democrats. We aro now free once more to go before tho people on equal terms with :>ur competitors. And Wo shall gain Or lose according as the policies we 'impose shall attract or repel tho con? fidence of the people. I believe the great standard Ideas of Democracy were never more at irnotlve to the people thnn they are today. I may not stop to repeat them and need not. Everybody knows 'them. I shnll speak briefly of the inly, tariff reforms. I believe the people, at large are suffering more from the exactions of the turlff thnn from any other single cause. The favored Interests were permitted, ns everybody knows, to write the various clauses In the Ding ley law to Bull themselves, und they were not at all stingy about it, either Their contributions hod won tho elec? tion and they wire enjoying their own. For over ten years, In spite of enor? mous Increases In the amount of ar? ticles taxed, the Republicans have re? fused to reduce the rates of taxation. So the part of what the people are made lo pay which goes Into tho treas? ury has, In spite of cxtrnvagnnce in all directions, filled It with Idle money. Hundreds of millions which do no? body any good but favored banks. While the far larger part of what the people are made to pay which goes to tho favored Interests in the form of arbitrary advance in prices to home consumers has rapidly bred Illicit wealth. When llavemoyer, the head of the Sugar Trust, hud to admit under oath that the tariff is the mother of trusts, there was loud protest all nlong the line of beneficiaries. They fell back on their stock argument. Look at the Standard Oil Company, tho great? est of all trusts, with oil on the free list. I confess that point did puzzle me a little until I discovered the facts. The only country which could export oil In any quantity Is Russia which puts an enormous duly on Imports of oil. So thero was slipped into tin Dlngley bill n clnusn which provides for the same duty on oil Imported here which the country from which it comes Imposes on American oil. Of course, we have had no oil from Russia though petroleum nnd its pro? ducts are nominally on the free list. Folly of Country's Stadn. It is folly to rail nt the trusts and pursue them with flues nnd injunc? tions while we carefuly cherish the law which breeds and feeds' them. The way to stop a growth is lo go it the root of It. And what relief would the people get if tho .trusts ,vere nil dissolved, without revising he tariff? The men and concerns... ivhlch compose them would go right 'j in drawing separately ..ie substance af the people LV means of these ex :esslve tariff charges. It would he inly a change of form with the same result. I have seen a careful estimate showing that every family In tho United States contributes nn average if one hundred dollars per year to ho gains of the beneficiaries of tho Dlngley tariff, In Increased cost of teces&itles alone. This cxp'.ans why hose who live on wages and salaries lud themselves no bettor off, notwltn standing repeated increases in their >ny. Surely It Is our duty, ns well as wise ifollcy, to ralso our voices if.ninst these impositions on the peo ilo and give our pledge of relief. They AND?L say' tho larlff must ho revised by Its friends. Wo Bay li must be revised by the friends of the people. Other? wise If will never be done at all or the revision will prove to be a shame.; Hut, like all measures which affect I trade and Industry, the revision of the tariff must be made With deliberate] care. Thousands o! honest Industries are involved which must have tlm??'i and opportunity to adjust themselves to new conditions, These need not bo harmed. On the contrary, as many . of them have already discov? ered! they will gain by being freed from (obstacles which hamper foreign trad*1. (tight things may be done In n j wrotiK way. When I was-a toy I once i got a good licking because, when set j to weed a long neglected strawberry bed, 1 went about It with such reck? less force that the vines- mostly came i up with the weeds. In conclusion, I am firm In the be? llt r that we shall deal this year In wholesale fashion with all differences In personal choice and views and bring the party in full vigor to the coining race. V1R01SIAN RAILWAY TO DEVELOP NEW RIVER Lino Rom Tltfewater Siction to Ex? tend Throunh Piney Coal Coal Fields to Hinton. CLIFTON FORCE, VA., Jan 22 ? A citizen of Hinton who has boon closely idenlHied with the plans of the Virginian railroad, formerly styl? ed the Deepwater Tidewater, to reach the rich coil fields, today declared In positive terms that the Virginian railroad would be built through West Hinton juft as soon as financial con? fidence Improved sufficiently to pro vld? funds. This extension will bo from the month of East 'Ivor on the main line from Dcepwtner to Nor? folk, to the Plney coal fields via West Hinion and Prince. Tho citizen himself sold the char? ter and rights oT way over thift route secured by hint for n railroad line, to the Virginian people, and Is,en? tirely familiar with their plans for deyloplng this impo'tant territory. Tho Pennsylvania Lumber Company has built a lumber rond down Blue stone river to Its mouth, five nillofi above Hinton on Now river and this road has been tendered the Virginian rillroad to operate, which thn\- will "horlly accept, building their line on through from the mouth of Rlueitone to tho Raleigh coal fields at ontv, and later complete the link between 'he mouths of Milestone and East rlvo-?. This Information comes from nu Mioralatlv ?? rourcefl and assures the speedy development of tho west side of New river, and will Incidentally 1 do much toward developing West Hinton as an Important point.
