Harrisonburg's Resolutions Are Entered of Record. The Committee assigned to that duty through its Chairman, J. N. Liggett, re ported the followingjßemorial paper ie connection with of Judtre McLaughlin, and tfle same" was unani mously adopted: The members of the Rockingham bar, over which for many years William Mc Laughlin has presided, impressed with the great loss which his death has caused to the judicial body of which he was a distinguished member; to the State which he has served with ability in many varied positions; and his family over which he shed the light of an ear nest love; hereby express their sorrow ,<pr the sad bereavement which has de- country of a citizen of such high Y_lp* in every walk of life. AJjCjKgketch of his life reads, fiat he w__Torn In Rockbridge county some I seventy years ago, of that sturdy Scotch Irish ancestry whose decendants have exemplified, from the Revolution of 1776 to the fall of the Southern Con federacy iv 1865, the purest type of he roism and patriotic statesmanship; he completed his scholastic education at Washington College; read law under Judge J. W. Brockenbrougb, and prac ticed at Lexington until .1861, when he entered the Confederate army as a Lieutenant in the Rockbridge Artillery, concluding his military career as Colo nel, commanding McLaughlin's Battal ion, which achieved such a glorious record in that terrible strife and took its name in compliment to him. After peace was assured Judge McLaughlin resumed the law practice in Rockbridge, was elected by the people of that county as a member of the State Constitutional Convention, convened during the Re construction period. After this he was made a delegate from Rockbridge to the Legislature, and shortly afterwards a Circuit Judge of the State, which posi tion he maintained until his death. It is accorded to him that in all the honorable posts to which he was called he bore himself with consplcious ability —that he was a soldier of heroic mould, a legislator of far-reaching sagacity, a lawyer of learning, and a judge whose integrity, industry, and grasp of intel lectual force entitled him to be placed in'he front ranks of Virginia's most eminent Jurists. His philanthropy kept pace with his official labors, for he se dulous.y devoted his service to the ad vancement of Washington & Lee Uni versity, of which he was for a long time a trustee, and he died Rector of the in stitution. With such badges of honor, fairly won and nobly worn, William McLaugh lin was on Saturday last borne to tbe grave in |Lexington; there amidst the people who never failed in their devotion to him, and whom he loved so well almost under the shadow cf his Alma Mater, and not far from the stat ue of Stonewall Jackson and the mounds of other Confederate compa triots—he rests. And in memory of this noble life the members of the Bar order that copies of this paper be presented to the County and Circuit Courts of Rockingham; to the United States Court at Harrison burg; and the Supreme Court of Ap peals of Virginia at Staunton; and that a copy also be transmitted to the widow of Judge McLaughlin, with the assur ance of their sympathy in the deep affliction which is upon her. | ■ John T. Harris, C. Martz, Chairman. Secretary. Remarks of Gen. John E. Roller. In presenting the above paper to the Supreme Court on yesterday General Roller made the following remarks: "When, some 30 years ago, the Legis lature of the State of Virginia was called upon to put iv force its new Constitution, and to elect the officers, judicial and other, necessary for its op eration, the name of William McLaugh lin, then a member of the Legislature, was presented to that body for the posi tion of Judge of the Twelfth Judicial I'uit. He had emerged from the war a few years before, having attained high rank of Lieutenant-Colonel of llery, but as distinctions of that character were with the leading men ol those days, rather the rule, than the ex ception, it did not prove that he was worthy or fit for the place for which his friends had named him. " Upon inquiry being made of those who knew him best, a noted testimo- I.ame from one gentleman, himself, at distinguished man; the same formulated the plan to put the new ;c school system of the State of inia into successful operation, and for twelve years, its first Superin ent a Doctor of Divinity, and a Doctor of Laws. Of his fellow County man, he said, " He is, in my opinion, as fit as any man in the State for such a place." «V_ile he has had no opportunity to nguish himself at the Bar, since the war, yet I know for myself and from my own experience with him, that he is as learned and as thoroughly profi cient in the knowledge of the law as any lawyer at the Bar. 1 will give you an illustration. He is the only lawyer at the Bar, of whom I inquired, who could answer me with readiness and with accuracy, my question, which was, " Can a non-resident assignee of a resi dent obli_.ee, if the amount Is sufficient lu-ge, maintain bis suit against the tor, in the Federal Courts V That reputation, thus early con _d to him, William McLaughlin, as ge of the Twelfth Judicial Circuit, ntained for nearly thirty years. Confronted by numerous and im :ant questions arising out of the and its results, holding a Court inferior in importance to the people he circuit, to that of your Honors or ato that of the Supreme Court of United States, and having been iv offlce during three decades, more full of evidence than any that had ever pre ceeded them, of the fact that the law is a "liying science," he kept pace lig with the beet mind . and with best thought, of the Bar of bis eir , and of his State with its advance.'"! Until his strength failed him some .t in latter years, he was one of the t laborious Judges that ever nut n the bench. None were even more sut and more diligent, in research i he. In a case involving questions ~ -_. fficulty and importance, there never a more attentive listener, or one b anxious to hear all that a lawyer to say, and none who assumed lees, to know the ease to be presented, before hearing the arguments or authorities. Nay more, he approached the hearing of the case with no preconcieved opin ions, or if such, indeed, he entertained, j there was no conceit accompanying the same that would prevent their moval by the processes of eloquence and logic. More than once was he heard to say. " Until the argument in this case, I was of the opinion that another conclusion would have been prope**, than that j ! which I have reached, but I admit free ly that my opinions have been changed and that I am forced to the conclusion, that my decree should be what it is." " This characteristic of his was ac companied however, by a firmness that seemed to be gotten of a certainty of conception, assuring him ofthe correct ness of the results which he had reached. Upon investigation, ard this firmness together with a commanding presence, conspired to demand respect for and to enforce acceptance of his conclusions. "If he had any infirmity, if indeed, it might so be called, it was, that his j friendships were ardent and lasting. Those who enjoyed his confidence found themselves entrenched against criticisms and assault, and while this element of his character may have led him further at times, in minor matters than may have always appeared to be right, nevertheless, the knowledge of this trait secured to him from the mem bers of the Bar an emulation to win his [ favor. ' His knowledge of the law was most profound and his acquaintance with the rules of practice and of pleading, almost perfect, and as with these, was united a most untiring industry, he was j enabled to do the work, which few men j would undertake. "The value of his services in the Circuit in the economy of money and of the time, of suitors and juries, can never be estimated. It is to be feared that they will never befullyappreciated. The facility with which hecould dispose of cases on trial before him was simply wonderful. His dispatch of business unrivaled and unique. " Behind and under an exterior which appeared to be cold and reserved, utterly devoid of effusiveness, and without the least particle of emotion his great frame carried a warm heart. "He was a model and devoted hus band. The last act of his life was a tender and touching expression of love for a little boy,—his playmate and his pet. "With a kiss on his lips, from his little friend, this eminent, laborious, faithful and just Judge, b*>de adieu to life. "Andnow in loving memory of his name, and virtues, on behalf of the Bar of the County of Rockingham, in which lie did as much work as any other of his Circuit, I present to the Court these resolutions of respect." Nowadays when women are trying to d_> everything it is not strange that many things are over-done. It is not strange that there are all kinds of phys ical and mental disturbances. If the woman who is a doctor, or a lawyer, or a journalist, or in business would not try to be a society woman too it might be different; but the woman who knows when she has done a day's work has yet to be born* Usually a woman's way is to keep doing until she drops. Working ih this way has manifold evils. The most common trouble resulting fiom over-exertion, either menta ly or physi cally, is coustipation of the bowels, with all its attendant horrors. Dr. Pierces Pleasant Pellets are the most effectual remedy in the market. They work upon tbe system easily, nat urally. There is no unpleasant nausea after taking them. No griping—no pain—no discomfort. They are com posed of materials that go through the system gradually, collecting all impuri ties and, like the good little servants that they are, disposing of them effec ' 4 49 0 Tbe Best Man for State Senator. Governor Tyler has called an election for State Senator in the district com posed of the counties of Botetourt, Rockbridge, Alleahany, Bath, and Highland, and it becomes the Democrats to put forward their best men. The Spectator has been feeling the pub lic puke and whilst we have heard the names of numerous gentlemen suggest ed, there is no one who can so easily win our people together as Mr. Chas. P. Jones, who was for several years the Senator from that district. The dis trict cannot act more wisely than to nominate him, if he should consent to run. This is the opinion of every one with whom we have talked. There must be the yery best man put forward or Alle ghany will stir herself, bring out her negro vote and swamp both the Senator and Congressman. Mr. Jones popular ity in the district will insure his elect '"■ West Virginia Railroads. The State board of public works of West Virginia has made its return of railroad property in the State to the auditor for taxation. The total is $21,62.5,824, against a total last year of $22,709,573. The decrease is due to the small mileage built during the past year and depreciation of old roads: The Baltimore and Ohio, Charleston, Clen dennin and Sutton and West Virginia Central and Pittsburg roads show the greatest improvement in value, while the Norfolk and Western, the Chesa peake and Ohio and the West Virginia and Pittsburg show heavy depreciation.

Warren, af ter an illness of six weeks. His death was without pain. His wife, two of bis daughters—Mrs. Warren and Miss Florence Bayard -and his son Thos. F. Jr., saw him draw his last breath, and his third daughter, the Countess Leuvenhaupt, was on her way to Dedham. The remains will be conveyed to Del aware, and the funeral services will be held Sunday in the Old Swedes church, at Wifminington. A consultation of physicians was held August 2(itb, and they agreed that Mr. Bayard was suffering from arterio-sele rosis, and a general breaking down in cident, to age. He suffered no pain to any noticeable degree, and the chief tendency was to sleep. B'omorrow the body will be sent to eware, being due to arrive at AVil mington late Friday afternoon. Washington, Sept. 28.—General Nel son A. Miles will probably testify before the investigating commission as to the army scandals. It is expected that he will produce the records, which are said to be most interesting and sensational, indicating official strife. New York, Sept. 28.—The Oregon left the navy yard this morning and an chored off of Staten Island ready to sail to Honolulu. She was given a grand reception as she passed down the bay.

San Francisco, Sept. 28.—Much nn- j easiness is felt on account of the non arrival of the transports, Senator, Ohio j and Indiana, which are overdue from : Manila. The former is thirty-five days out, and seven days overdue. The Zealand, which left Manila two days later, passed through a typoon. Washington, Sept. 28.—The plank in the Syracuse platform declaring tbat tbe war would compel the United States to destroy Spanish authority in the An tilles and the Philippines is taken to represent the sentiment of the McKinley administration. Washington, Sept. 28.—From a poll of the Senate it is found that two-thirds of that body are in favor of the annexa tion of the Philippines. Syracuse, Sept. 29.—The official slate announced by ex-Senator Hill this morning is as follows: For governor,' Augustus Van Wyck; for lieutenant-: governor. Elliott Danforth; for secreta-1 ry of State, George Battom of Niagara. This is regarded as the strongest ticket that could be nominated. The convention was slow coming to j Sthis morning. Ex-Senator Hill heered, an I Mr. broker was both ed and hissed. Permanent Chair- K3chaub said in his speech lhat! epublicans are on the run, and ihe Democratic chances are bright. He attacked Col. Roosevelt as a tax dodger and non resident, and then took j up State issues. The committee on I platform has completed its work. The Chicago platform was not reaffirmed, j nor was it mentioned. It pledges the ' State Democracy to the '* principles of Democracy as enunciated by Thomas Jefferson." In the afternoon balloting began, | when Augustus Van Wyck, present mayor of New York, was nominated. Copenhagen, Sept. 29.—Queen Louise I of Denmark died at 5:30 o'clock this morning. Every member of the royal family was present at tbe bedside. She ' has been hopelessly ill for many weeks and only by the most careful skill was her life prolonged. She had been un conscious for forty-eight hours, aud her pulse was so weak it was difficult to determine whether she was still living; oxygen being employed by the physi cians to facilitate respiration. She was 81 years of age. She was the wife of King Christian and the mother of crown Prince Frederick; Alexandra, Princess of Wales; King George I of Greece; Dagmar, the Em press Dowager of Russia, mother of tbe present Czar; Thya, Duchess of Cuni-j berland; and Prince Waldemar. Her daughters have long been famed as tbe j most beautiful women of any royal family in Europe. i KBhington, Sept. 30.—President Mc-| y, in conversation with a number | of Senators and Representatives, has in dicated that his instructions to the Paris peace commissioners do not con template a demand for the entire Phil ippine group, though the island of Lu zon and Manila and Manila Bay will be required. The United States will insist upon a satisfactory and liberal form of government for the other islands. Spain will not be allowed to cede any part of the group without first securing the consent of the United States. j Paris, Sept. 30.—The Spanish peace commissioners denied today various in terviews purporting to give substance to their instructions. The secretary of the Spanish commission said to a rep resentative of the press: "No member of our commission has given out any interviews. AH that appeared in print as to our instructions, is false. AV r e are here to defend ourselves and are natur ally not willing to give any of our weapons to our opponents." The American commission held its usual session this morning, crystallizing their plans and arranging the details of j their work. They have taken poese_-' sion for working quarters a suite of seven rooms on the ground floor of the I hotel Continental, formerly used by tli9 ex-Empress Eugenic. The clerical force of the commission is systematized and working busily. They have the spirit of the press daily translated for them. £ London, Sept. 30.—Advices received here from high diplomatic circles in Pekin state that the Chinese Emperor h*is been dead for several days. There is a rumor afloat that he was poisoned, j but itlacksconfirmation. Itis reported I that the Dowager Empress called all the I court physicians to Pekin in ord*>r to l make it appear that the Euipi-ror died from natural causes. Intense excite ment prevails throughout the empire. Washington, Sept. 30.—Gen. Miles' proposition as to the reorganization of the army, contemplates the restoring of himself to the power and authority which formerly belonged to the Major- Iral Commanding. He is prepared m by what process the dignity of Bee was withdrawn from the mili head of the army. Moreover, he ridences to show he has been little than a figure head as to some very tant matters which should have is consideration. New York, Sept. 30.—Dr. Parkhurst led here today. He said that one Wyck was enough for him. He ed to know if Col. Rooseyelt went s Piatt, or if Piatt went to see bim. l informed that Roosevelt went to latt, he said : "I did not think he would have done so." Personally, he said, he admired Col. Roosevelt.
