BEST WAY IS TO VOTE AGAINST in cens dering tho four |iroposed umendmXiits 10 the Virginia constitu? tion upon which the peopie axe to vote this fall, tbis patter has been W cftaed to hntteta thir, while tho two sum hitmen's |>eim,ttiug treasurer* and commissioners of revenue to succeed themselves and the one extending the Iieriud of the regular sessions of the general assembly from sixty to ninety ?M9\ hould be defeated, the ametjd ment dolug 4 way wi h the require? ment thai each bill introduced in the assembly shall be read three times be I re Us passage was not objection? able. It would seem that as every senator and delegate has a copy of each bill intioduced, 10 hold up a measure for three readings causes de? lay without accomplishing any good purpose. And it has been suggested that with this handicap out of the way, the assembly could dispose of its business with such dispatch thnl ther,, would no longer be anv excuse for proposing an extension of the ses? sion. However, we do no! believe Ho-:, is any pressing demand for this change just now. It eiU be proposed at MOoUkOr tune, if th?te should be a demand for it, when there is ajO dan? ger of its confusing the Issue. The Norfolk Virginian-Pilot, orig? inal!) nci opposed to all of the amendments, now says: iii Hew, bonieietl, of the campaign, especially :he character of the cam? paign, which the treasurers and com iniss oners ol revenue are making to effect railflcatnn of the two amend? ments in which thev are directly and pecu! arly interested, it would prob? ably be wiser not to confuse the t* fitf in the public mind by advecatlrfg ra Ittc-Jtion in one instance and op? posing it ,n the others. The boat way at inhere th.t the amendments ?hi.-h ought to be defeated ??!! he killed is to vote against them all. That Is the best way o dispose of the objectionable amendments- vote and talk against them all. U is ta? pes tant thjt three of them be de? feated, and it is not; esaentkri, even though it may be considering deslrv ble. that the fourth he ratified As to the proponed lengthening ot the assembly's sessions, this paper th nks Utero is practically nothing favorable and much thw ia unfavor? able to tie said. It is contended by those who advocate tbe change that the legislator* do not have time to diapose of all tbe business that comes before them within he sixty days of the present session and that cvnse qwently many !mi>ortant measures wb eh should be adotited are n^ver acted upon EipeH?-nred lea,slator* tell ns. bowevrr. thnt if ike assembly attends to business ta a business tike way sta y days is sufficiently long for the sea*ton. and that if the assembly cpent eleven nxnth* out of toe year la Richmond ibe?e always would he a man* of uniouheg ksisl***** snowed under ia the mah of the rioeiax day a of the seeston More over ft la a weil known fact that many of the snoot anrfal meesbera ol the assembly maae personal aacrl Bee* in order to spend ataty day* at Rhaaaond a?li nilaa the States ef a said object aarionaly tn gtvinc ap na addrtPeei thirty day* froai their atl THEM ALL.

Per haps there ate <> her such ..tie ? r. in the State, but, unless tlia paper is misinformed, they are notable ex? ceptions to tbe rate, Throughout 'he State, it Is said, the coinmiHiloiiers and treaRL'iers, with the sher.ffs and clerks if court*, year iu and year out use their offices for political purposes, hi lldiug up local political machines through which they not only per l>. i ii.it?. themselves ju ofllce but con? trol .iffalra generally In their coun? ties.

The p? wer of the office holders makes it pofs ble fir them to offer formidable opposition to the abolition of the fee arstem. And as they ore the hencflclarle-s of tbe system, he opposition will be just as strenuous as the* can nr.:ke it This is another reason fc i voting down the amend ments.

Chief of Police Kizee. of Norfolk, has asked Chief Mitchell for a copy of the local anti-gnmbling ordinance with the view of having a s tnllar measure enacted by the Norfolk city council Cnder the State law is practically impossible to prevent gambling in public poker rooms if the gamblers are halfway discreet, conse ip.cn ly poker rooms have been run? ning full blast. It Is said, iu spite of all the reforming In progress across the Koads. It will be remembered that at the t me tbe Newport News council pass? ed the anti gambling ordinance |t wa3 strongly contended 'hat the measure wculd not aland the test of tbe courts Several pc.kor "Joints" were o|>erat ing o|>ed1y in the center of the city at the time, and heir proprietora, -or. fldent la the belief that in the knag run they would have nothing more sen. us to deal with than the ineffee tlve Riate kW, boldly kept theii games going A few heavv Baiea ami Jail sentence* imposed by Justice Krown finished the fight, however There wan much talk about appeals and tests in the high** court, but it was _U talk No appeal ever went to the Cor|uuation Court and the prom ised t**t never h-sr been made But. whether or not It is good law.

The best off lit tbls world's goods and tbe best looking widow In tbe village of Brunswick uns Mrs. Henry Rob? erts. 8ue was not ouly proud of her? self, but tbe town wos proud of her. She needn't have beeu a widow more than a year after the death of ber husband, but fuur years bad passed and no one bad wou her love. It was (hen thut Farmer Johuaou. widower, bought a farm near tbe village and settled upon It. Farmer Johnson was a middle aged and very busy man. He made few ac? quaintances In tbe village. Three mouths, passed, aud he had never heard of Widow Roberts. Then a con? stable served a summons on blm as defendant In a lawsuit for damages. Tbe widow was the plaintiff. "She claims that a one horned cow belonging to me damaged her garden $10 worth. Never owned a one horn? ed cow In my life." Thut afteruoon he went down to see tbe widow about It. Ho was very gra? ciously received and bis statement lis? tened to aud not contradicted. Instead of tbe last, tbe widow said: "Mr. Johnson. I've seeti you In church for the last five Suudays?your pew la directly ahead of mine?and you have never looked around once!" "Mebbe nut. I'm no band to look around in church.*' ??Alien?' Mr. Johnson, this suit mast go one" Mr Johnson was at church next Sunday, bot be didn't look around. What time be wasn't thinking of that lawsuit he was mad. Monday after? noon be received a second visit from tbe constable, and there waa a second summons. This time it claimed dam? ages for a black hog carrying tbe wid? ow's gate off Its hinges. "By smoke, but what's the woman at!" he shouted as he read. "I don't own no black hog and never did." "Better go and see her." was tbe advice that was followed the next day. The widow wus smiling and gra? cious. She listened to the denial with? out much interest and answered: "Mr. Johnson, you were at church again last Sunday, but you never no? ticed me." ? "I?I gueas I must have been power folly taken up with the sermon." "As to this suit, Mr. Johusou, It must go on!" Mr. Johnson woe not at church next Sunday. He went out and sat down with bis back to a atrawstack to do aome thinking. He had a terror of tbe law, arid be wondered what was com? ing next. He bad but a few hours to wait Monday afternoon the constable was there with the third summons. "Now. what in Aunt Jemlny is It thie time?" be shouted as tbe paper waa put into bis hands "The widow is suing yon for running your wagon sgln tier grave*. 1 lielleve." was tbe reply. "But 1 haven't driven i*i wagon past ber bouse In a mouth!'' "Better see her about It." ? "Ml t>e hanged If I don't: and I'll talk right up to her too"" Bat fce didn't. Next day when he called be was received with a smile, and tbe widow proceeded to say: "afT. Johnson, you ? were not In church last Sunday." -No." "And consequently you did not tee me.. This suit most go ?u>' "But. widder. there ain't no sense in it 1 can prove that 1 never run Into yonr fence." Tear "If I bad I'd bare paid damages) right away. Aod I don't own no one horned cow nor a black bog." "No? But tbe suits must go on. Will yon be at church next Sunday?' "If I ain't too troubled in my mind. Three different lawsuits on me. and 1 ain't tbe man after all*" For a time, wben tbe neit Sabbath came around. It was doubtful If Mr | Johnson would attend church. Ho J made up his mind at tbe last moment, however, and put in an appearance. TbO widow was forgotten for the first hour, and then be suddenly turned square around and looked into her face and received a smile He didn't know whether ft meant a fourth sum moo* next day or what but wben the benediction was pronounced be beard hnaaaelf saying: "Widder Roberts. If yon don't mind I'm going tu a a Ik borne with yon." "Only too happy. Mr. Roberta.** And as soon aa they bad left tbe ?i tdder.
