WASHINGTON, Kelt ,\ sp t iul In the Post from Richmond, Va. says; Several conferences have I.u le-M within th.. lutsi two weeks between i.'preKentatives of ihe Virginia laquoi Healers' Assoeiulioii and lrnile I States Senatot Thomas S Martin, with tie- object of securing to Judge William Hod.'. Main, candidate for governor, the stippori o| the liquor element in Virginia, provided Judge Nianii wiii agree to a public statenienl that lie will not approve any measure passed b\ the legislature, while gov? ernor, declaring for State-wide prohibi? tion in Virginia, according I? a !ea.l ing member of I he Liquor Dealers' A< si elation It is said that a tacii agreement was reached al informal meetings, and if the desired ends (tin be obtained in a pul lie statement, tie liquor deal? ers will he s'ttisfled with the rand! dacv of Judge Mann. In tltis connection it is said that as a result of the conference ('tilted States Senator Martin is not near so enthusiastic in bis support (it Judge Mann as he w:is - wo weeks titii This information comes from sqtire s usually regarded as reliable. Enters the Antisaloon League. The rock on which all negotiations up to tltis time stranded is the Ant. saloon Leauue. which hopes to force within the four years a statewide pn hibtion Hub' in Virginia, and con? sequently, lIiis league would hardly agree to support a candidate under promise to veto any 1411 adopted by the legislature looking to this end Tucker has already declared thai he will ?? to a bill of this kind. Should Judge Mann also make such a state? ment publicly to tne liquor people the league will be forced tu seek its end by the doubtful experiment of boing before the people for their votes on the question. Indirectly, several times, the in for? mat ion has come from tin* headquart? ers ol Judge Mann thai he will make no statement as to what he will do If elected governor. Now the qu >stlon in the minds of the politicians is. what will Senator Martin do? If. as there appears to be some reason to believe, he will keep bands off and allow the candida'es to fight it out among them? selves, a knotty tan.'le presents it j self. Wcu d Support Tucker. It is learned that a meeting of Hie liquor people has been held a' Rich? mond, behind closed doors, the sense ol whi? h was that they would sup? port Tucker againai Mann, on the ground that it would be liettor to have a man in the governors chair who did not favor prohibition rial would use his influence against it. than a man who while not running on thai platform, has long been affiliated with the Anti-saloon league and would wel. come ain movement iflade hy the league. Judge Mann declines to take up this question of what he wrl do if con? fronted by the two horns of the dilem? ma, after he has become governor on iiical option platform, and with the support of the liquor people. It is apparent that lie cannor steer clear of trouble when these two antagonist, ir force finally lock boms for the con? trol of the S'ate. Patent Medicines in Japna Vive-Consul-Geneiral r. ft.
