Anil when 1 say her people. 1 mean tho Democratic party, to whoso members he owes all the political honors that have come to him from his fellow citi/. ns of Vir? ginia.' This is the opening statement of Chairman J. Taylor Ellyson if the Democratic State Committee, whose card appeircd in Sunday's papers, ilr. Ellyson then proceeds to show up the political record of ex-Gover? nor Montague who was? beneficiary for many years of the campaign funds raised for use by the Demo eratic Committee. Extracts are quoted from letters written by Mr. Montague requesting the aid of the committee in a financial way. Mr. I?tyson declares that John W. Daniel, Fitxhugh I^ee. Joseph Bryan, Bevei lev B. Munford and other men of Uko character deemed it important that they should lend their personal assistance to tin .State chairman in collecting funds for the successful conduct of thi campaigns when white supremal-) was imperilled in 1891 and 18'.'H. UNFAIR TO TEACHERS lt would appear to us that the 1> vision School Superintendents i Virginia, at th ir meeting held re cently in Farmville, made a mistak when they adopted a resolution dt ny ing the public school teachers c tate tbe right to letters of er dorsement from this boJy uf schoo men at tbe head of Virginia's edi cational system, who, above a others, are in position to know th qualifications of teachers. It is unfair and unjust to faitl.fi teachers to deny them this righi for it is their right, as it is ihe rig!: of every other employe who desire to apply for a better position. Nc only did the superintendents r solve to withhold deserved recogn tiot:, but they decided that the would give private information t i ach other concerning teachers >\ li applied for positions oakside thei own districts. Ell.clent teacher.) are entitled t recommendation when they desir it, und inefficient teachers shoul not be endorsed to other BU peri I tendents. Ka eli superintends! should be left free to act in accor. ance with justice and fairness, ni only to the teacher but also to hi follow superintendent and tbe gm of the schools at large. William Jennings Bryan sa Monday to a large crowd in Colui bus. Ohio: "I intend to devote ; my time between now and the non nation to finding out things abo the candidates for the Democrat nomination for President. I kn< all of the leading men of the pan those who ha-o hindered and tin who have helped it. When tho ti comes to name tho man for the ci didaey. I will not be silent." A correspondent of the Kyn burg News from Abingdon in toda paper says that he has not years seen anything tbat g_ve 1 more satisfaction than thestateir. in Sunday's News under the capt of "Montague Burns Up the I chine.' From now henceforwo he says, there will bo no m trouble about Virginia's politi (uaohine, for it bas been burnt Glidden Tourists to Pass Through'!

Martin Honored by His Neighbors A notable gathering was held a' Charlottesville last week by friends of Senator Martin, lt is estimate* that 2,000 Albemarle county mer were in attendance.
