In discussing the nomination or George Nelms Wise, of this city, for congress by the Republicans or the l-'irHt district, (he Northern Neck News Is not altogether fair to Mr. Wise or to the Democrats of Newport News. I The News Rays. "And so. It seems, the Republicans of this congressional district have been induced, after all. to give Mr. George Nelrns Wise, a geegsd nomination. The ulterior pur-; ?Mise of Mr. Wise in seeking a renom inatiuii at the bauds of his party Is perhaps not far to seek." If tht- Re? publicans were "induced" to give Mr Wise the nominal ion it Is news to the |ieop!e of this city. It has been gad is nflll believed here that the Newport News lawyer not only did ?. not seek the iniiniin.i i.n. but would have been very willing to allow somebody else to have the empty honor. In (set, there is ground for the suspicion that Mr. Wise, knowing that Congressman Jones has made the district a fine representative and that lie cannot be beaten bf a Republican, would not have offi red no objection had the Frederioksburg Convention seen lit lo make no nomination. | S|>eaking of the overwhelming de feat Mr. Jones administered to the Newport News man two years ago, when Mr. Wise failed to carry a sin? gle county in the district. The News say*i: | "Despite his much vaunted person? al popularity he lost his own city by a large, majority Indeed, for UM lirst time in the history of N'efport News, every ward in that city went I?eir.ocratic. Riving a substantial maj Jorlty against the man whose Repuh licsn friends had proclaimed him as Its 'favorite son." " i This is where The News Is unfair to Newport News Democrats. As a matter of fact except under extraor? dinary t trrumstances no ward in Newport News has gone Republican' since the new constitution went into effect. Under normal conditions, the Republicans are outnumbered here bv at least two or three to one. and no1 ward has been represented tn the city council by a Republican since tho"ne gro rote was eliminated. In the last congressional election Mr. Jones car? ried the city by about two hundred majority. This was a compliment lo Mr. Jones. It Is tme. in view of th-* fact that his opponent was a local man. but. as this paper remembers |?. Mr. Wise polled better than a normal Republican vote. Certainly his vote in this city was larger than any Re? publican from elsewhere In the dls trict could have mustered. NEW YORK HERALD'S CONGRES StONAL ESTIMATES. Democratic control of the next House or Representative practically it predicted in two pages oT estimate Ol the congressional situation |ajb Hsbed In the New York Herald Sub day Pollowlag is a part or a sum? mary of these estimates ^ There are a?l members of the bones of representatives. Ia the present bowse SIT of these SSI Republicans ?ad IK are Den? erat*. The Herald s first server of the r.-.eipeien of lain shows that there sre ISS districts reasonably certai.v for the Repoblicana and Ml reason ably certain for the ttemoerets. Th.. leer.a 11? district*, classed a?

IhroiiKhout the couiry lliut (he ttepub tlcans are recovering from thelf pauie. The buoyancy of the Democra? cy is not quite so apparent. It is go lag to be a battle royal anyway. In the Virginia estimate The H?t aid ajeea the Stato nine Democrats and one Itepuhll? an. This would seem to indicate that The Herald Is piittlnK nothing in the Itomocrntlc column lliat does not pro|torlv belong liiere While even the most optlmla tlc of Virginia Democrats admit that there Is a probability that the He publicans will send one congressman Irom the Slate, on the other hand even ttie most conservative are still hopeful of seeing ten Democratic Virginia representatives in the next house. The Herald goes on to show thai not only Is the house of representa? tives at stake in tliis election; that the control of the senate also nuiv be involved. Ill Ibis connection th" naaiaaarT says Hut not only is the house of reprc si in it 11 v- oh at stake tins election the poliiieal control *>f the senate may .ilso bo involved. The Republicans have now, "on paper." twi nty six ma jorily, but this includes from seven to twehe Seniums classed us "insur gents." who frequently vole with the Democrats. Of the thirty-one svnators whose terms expire und whose scats must he tilled by legislatures to he eleited this fall twenty four are Re publicans. It is easily probable that by the time ttie new senate Is read/ fof organisation after March :t next, there may be enough new Democrats ami new "Insurgents" in olllce to turn over completely the control of that bfjy. Thus far the election of ? Dem Berat to succeed the conservative Hale, of Maine, is assured, while there will be ' Insurgent" senators succeed Ing Senator Klint, from California' Senator Hurrows. from Michigan, and Senator I'ibs. from Washington. Kveti our own Depew may tremble for his seat MR. YOUNG'S COMPLAINT. Former Congressman Young claim-" that he tins been made a "scape gent." He declares that the |Kiwers Hint be in Virginia politics have sac rtticcd liim In order to quiet popular clamor, and that, having stllbil the storm, they are preparing to areom plish their own ends by handing over ihe Patent r a 11 fl nomination for congress to a particular friend of Sen :itor Martin. Mr. Young, having lost his certifi? cate of nomination as Democratic nominee for congrotts because an In vestIgatIon held upon the demand oi the public showed that the primary in which lie won on the face of the ? eturns was tainted by fraud and cor ruptlon. is now a candidate for nomi? nation at the hands of Ihe conviction ordered by the district committee. So I* Congressman Maynard. whose sup |k>rters In the recent primary, accord Ing to reports of the investigation, were as deeply involved In frauds as Ihe adherents of Mr. Young Therf are three other candidates. amon<; them State Senator ft. ft Hollandy of Suffolk, who is supposed to he the most formidable opponent of Young, ami who .is the man referred to by Young as Senator Martin's friend. Perhaps there is some truth in Mr Young's claim that he has been made a "scai>e-goat." Rut Is that any rets, sen why the respectable people of the Sen.r.d district should vote to send him to congress? No doubt there are hypocrites now condemning Young anil howimg for fair elections who helped to vote dead men. or at least thoroughly approved of the methods used In the recent primary, until af ter the storm of popular protest be can to rage. Hut that doesn't clean Mr. Young's skirts, nor make him tti lo receive the Democratic nomination for congress.
