LOUIS WITZ DEAD.
A telegram was received here Satur-'
day evening announcing the death at
Aiken, S. C, of Louis A. Witz.
This news will carry sadness to |
many hearts, for there are few young ;
men who have been so universally be- i
loved.
The deceased, who is a son of Mr.
and Mrs. Isaac Witz, was born in this
city 26 years ago.
At an early age he gave evidence of
a studious tendency, and after several
years' study, he graduated at the City
High School, standing among the first
in his class.
In 1892 he entered the academic de
partment at the Washington and Lee
University in Lexington. During the
collegiate course he took a prominent
part in all college politics, being a
member of many societies, among
which is the Sigma Nu Greek letter
fraternity.
The degree of Bachelor of Arts waß
conferred upon him in '95. After this |
he became a student in the law de- j
partment. At the finals of '96 he was
j cox wain in the Harry Lee lloat Crew,
which was the winning club for that |
year.
In 1897 he graduated with the degree |
of Bachelor of Law, being president!
of bis class. He then returned to his
home in this city and began the prac- j
tice of his profession.
In this he continued only a short'
while, for his health soon began to
fail, and in the latter part of the year
1897 he was operated upon in Balti
more city for appendicitis. From this
he never entirely recovered, and
shortly thereafter wards he traveled for
a long while through Texas and Mex
ico. On this trip he was accompanied
by his brother, Julius Witz. They re
turned from the Southern tour last
August. His illness having developed
into extreme consumption, he
tupon medical advice,
for the South, going to Aiken,
[c was accompanied by his sis
-38 Rosa Witz. His condition
same dangerous, and his father

N. B. SCOTT ELECTED
Senator From West Virginia—Me-
Graw Will Make a Contest.
Nathan B. Scott has been elected
United States Senator from West Vir
ginia. Being an Ohio man and backed
up by boodle and tbe administroiion
it could hardly be otherwise. It hap
Ipened in this way:
The Republican scheme for an agree
ment to stop all unseating and all con
tests was accepted by the Democrats
I under the belief that Haptonstall and
Hunt, Republicans, would not vote for
Scott, aud that a long and dreary
deadlock would ensue, in which Mc-
Graw would stand a better chance
It s conceded that if the Democrats
had made the most of their opportu
nities Scott's election might have been
postponed indefinitely or prevented.
The Democratic rank and pile admit
they were out-generaled, and that the
game was so cleverly worked that they
did not know it till the election was
over.
Hunt and Hapstonstall played their
part so well that the Democrats trust
ed them and did not realize that they
were really friends of Bcott till to day
in the joint assembly, when, after the
vote was completed and Scott lacked
one vote of an election, Hunt changed
his vote to Scott and elected him before
any sort of protest or action could be
begun by the Democrats.
If Scott had lacked two votes of an
election Hapstonstall would have fol
lowed Hunt's lead. It was all over in
a few minutes, and the Democrats have
no consolation except the barren hope
that tbe United States Senate will re
fuse Scott a seat because his election
was brought about by means of tbe
votes of Senators Pierson and Get zen
danner, who served during the war as
Captain and Lieutenant, respectively,
in the volunteer army, resigning their
commissions in time for the legislative
session.
Hon. John T. McGraw, the Demo
cratic nominee for Senator, has made
the following statement :
Neither Mr. Scott nor myself was
elected under the form 3 of law to the
Senate. I received 46 votes in the
joint Assembly. He received 48 votes
and Judge Goff received 1. This gives
Scott a majority of 1 over the com
bined vote of Goff and myself, but of
the 48 votes received by Mr. Scott, two
of them were the votes of State Sena
tors who had forfeited their votes by
reason of the provisions of section 13,
of article 6, of the State constitution,
in the Senate by the acceptance of
lucrative offices under the Federal
government (commissions in the army.)
Therefore Mr. Scott in reality and in
law received 46 votes, The vote, there
fore for him was 46; the vote for my
self was 46, and the vote forjudge
Goff was one, and in consequence
there was no election.
"In addition to this, the ballot ill
joint assembly was taken in the ab
sence of any and all representation
from the county of Taylor and from
the Fourth Senatorial district, bo that
the pretended election was had with
out any representation from that Sen
atorial district, and from one county
in the Legislature, aud with the ab
sence of such representation the vote
received for Mr. Scott in the joint as
sembly was not a majority of all Sena
tors and delegates to which the various
counties of the State were entitled un
der the constitution thereof.
"This question arose, and was ex
pressly determined by the Court of
Appeals of Kentucky and the Senate of
■Jnited States in the Blackburn-1
er case. The questions so raised
c are not of personal interest or
advantage, but I deem it my duty to
see that they are properly presented to
the Senate of the United States upon
the question of Mr. Scott's qualiflca
, tion therein, not only in the name of
the Democratic party, which has
stood by me so loyally in this contest,
but likewise in the name of the con
istitutional government, which cannot,
even in the hazard of personal disad
vantage be so ignored.
'•I therefore feel it my duty to see
that these questions be presented, and
a protest be made to the Senate of the
United States."
Mr. McGraw makes this statement
as the base of his notice of contest.

■Ktension of Rural Free Delivery.
Washington special says that the
ess which has attended the rural
free delivery experiment has given rise
to a general demand throughout tbe
country for additional facilities, and
accordingly Representative Stokes has
introduced a bill providing that such j
mail shall be delivered by the star route
carriers. The bill provides that per
sons living along such routes may
erect boxes, and on application to the
nearest postmaster may have their
mail deposited in the boxes without
additional charge, ana the person serv
ing the Toute must also collect mail
deposited in the boxes for the post
office. The Postmaster General is au
thorized to receive plans and devices

I LAND GRABBERS' ACT.
'hefellowing to the Dispatch is
t another straw which shows how
Land Grabbers act affects the in
"Oak, New county, Va.,
January 24, 1899.
3 the Eiiiti r of rlie Dispatch:
1 have been reading the Dispatch
the accounts it has been given of
many hardships brought on the
people by the passage by the last Legis
latureofthe ••so-called" law relating
to delinquent lands, but I took no par
ticular interest iv the matter becaase I
knew that I had paid the taxes on my
land ever since it was deeded to me
and that my fath r did likewise, while
he held it. Bur tbe other day I re
eiev.d a u< tic-' from rjie clnrk of my
county stating that a certain man bad
made application for my farm on ac
count of a delinquent tax for the year
1884, several years before my father
bought the land. I was aston: bed,
but went to the ckrk's office and refund
that if I did not pay another man's
taxes for him with interest from date,
together with 55 to the man who noti
fied me, in four mouths' time he could
force the clerk to make him a deed to
my farm.
AYe poor farmers do not know much
law, but we know that the fundamen
tal principles of this land are that a
man shall eet value received for his
money, and an\ thing contrary to this
should not be law. But when I s„e
that our Supr. me Court of Appeals,
the highest tribunal in the State, has
said that the land-grabbers' act is law.
I stop, and in the words of Tom Wat
son, wonder "wLeie I am at."
"Are we drifting back to the Dark
Ages ? Our Declaration of Indepen
dence says that all men are created
equal, that they are endowed by their
Creator with unalienable rights; that
anions these are life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness. Oh, for a voice
from the sepulchres of the saviors of
our country toi-.tny the hand of such
lawless acts ami make the beautiful
words a reality.
Instead of gettiig liberty and hap
piness, we, tin- poor people, are har
atsed year after jear by what is called
a "new law." But they tell us that is
a progressive aire wiien legislatures
are allowed to make anything a law
that will help the law] era and down
the poor farmer. I. such laws as this
continue to be uiaele i l.c poor farmers
of the country will fin-illy be on an
equal footing with the peasantry of
England. A few pe< pie now, compar
atively speaking, own all of the
money, and I fear the time is not far
distant when they will o»n all the
land also, when the poer people will
either have to become their tenants,
when the chains of tyranny will rattle
on their arms, cr ihey will die of star
vation. We fought the revolutionary
war to be relieved of the yoke of Eng
land, but now the yoke is becoming
more and more burdensome by the
acts of our own coun. rymen.
Who can blame these new territories
for kicking against annexation to the
United States? They tell us that they
are an ignorant set, but their case is
one'where, if ignorance is bliss, 'tis
folly to be wise.'
'I was too young to have exoeri
ehced any of the hardships of the re
construction period after our civil
war, but have often read of them. I
do not think that any of the laws of
those days were uioie unjust than the
last acts of our Virginia Legislature as
to delinquent lauds. 1 read also with
contempt the introduction in the
United States Congress the bill known
as the 'force bill,' but even this would
not have workei an many hardships on
the people. I don't wonder at a body
of young and inexperienced lawyers,
who are thirsting for litigation, mak
ing such laws, but to tbiuk that our
court of appeals have declared it to be
constitutional. We say from the bot
torn of our hearts, 'God, save the Com
monwealth.'
They tell us that this law will bring
thousands of dollars in the State treas
ury, but for what purpose? I say that
it will finally go to create new offices
or to increase the expeiise of the al
ready heavily salaried ones. Such
laws will work no good finally, they ate
calculated to make anarchists of the
people, and may result in our protect
ing our property with our guns.

Agreed to Take Them Back.
The board of visitors of the Virginia
Military Institute completed their la
bors yesterday in dealing with the
question referred to them by General
Scott Shipp relating to the dismissed
cadets. The beard announced that
the cadets should be taken back, and
as a result hundreds of hearts are
throbbing with joy. They will of
course be made to apologize and pledge
themselves to hereafter abstain from
such conduct as caused their expul
sion. This they willingly agreed to.
All the members of the board were
present except Colonel Barley, Judge
Bheaand E. W. Saunders.
After the organization of the board
Alexander Hamilton was elected pres
ident to fill the vacancy caused by the
resignation of Judge Letcher from the
board when appointed circuit judge.
Gen. Scott Shipp, the superintend
ent, presented his semi-annual report
in regard to the condition of the in
stitute, which showed the school to be
in a very flourishing condition.
Capt. Branch B, Morgan, acting
commandant, was promoted to the
rank of major.
Application for reinstatement from
several cadets, who were dismissed for
hazing, was refused. K. B. Lemoine,
of Virginia, dismissed for being a
party to hazing, was reinstated.

The Case of C B. Lohr.
C. B. Lohr, who has been engaged in
the practice of veterinary surgery in
this city, was summoned before the
police justice Friday morning on
the charge of violating the law gov
erning the practice of that profession
in this State. Having been icfused
permission to practice by the State
Board of Veterinary Examiners three
years ago, he instituted a suit in the
Supreme Court against the said board
to secure a certificate granting him the
right to practice without the prescrib

to be false, bo upon this ground and
other reasons, the board refused to
grant him the privilege to continue
the profession under the law, which
provides that only those shall be per
mitted to practice who, prior to the
first day of May, 1896, are practicing
veterinary medicine or surgery in this
State, and all those who shall there
after receive certificates from the State
Board of Veterinary Examiners.
