TO FRAME NEW CONSTITUTION.
Leading Virginians Will Soon Undertake
The Task.
A correspondent of the Baltimore
News from Kichmond, Jan. 29, says :
The coming constitutional convention,
arguments for which are being made
by tho Virginia Legislature, is the po
litical question uppermost in the minds
of the people of the State at the pres-
Ik nt time. The precise date on which
the convention will assemble has not
been decided upon, but it is generally
thought that it will meet iv the early
spring. The one aim aud object iv
view is to frame a new constitution to
take the place of the infamous Under
wood Constitution framed during the
dark days of the reconstruction.
According to the programme every
part of the State will be represented
in the convention and every delegate
will have a say as to the make-up of
tbe constitution. However, it is gen-;
erally understood that the work of
framing the constitution must be left
to a select few, as the average dele
gate knows but little of law. Of course, I
[ every delegate will have a say and a
vote: but iv the work of framing the
constitution, wisdom and care are
needed. Lawyers well-rounded in
constitutional law are more needed
than politicians. Every clause and
every sentence must be weighed iv the
balance and subjected to a rigid ex
aminatien to see if it is found want
ing. Large bodies of men are apt to
be swayed by popular impulse and are
ill-fitted for the work of framing a
constitution. The cool, calm deliber
ateness of wisdom is what is needed,
and for men possessing such qualities
of conservatism, knowledge and wis
dom, Virginia is now seeking.
Among those who have been prac
tically decided upon as the men beat
suited for the task of framing tbe con
stitution are Attorney General A. J.
Montague, the Hon. Armistead C.
Gordon of Augusta and tbe Hon.
Mieajah Woods of Albemarle. In the
opinion of the leading men of the
State these three men are best suited
for the work of framing such a con
stitution as Virginia should have. Of
course, they will be assisted by others,
but it is thought that tbe great body
of the work will be entrusted to them.
Mr. Montague, Attorney General of
the State, is one of the most prominent
lawyers in the State. He is yet young,
I recognized as one of the fore
>f his profession iv the Old Doui
Mr. Montague defeated ail
for the high office for which he
and is a strong candidate for
xt Guberatorial nomination.
Armistead C. Gordon is generally
recognized as one of the most learned
constitutional lawyers iv the State.
His knowledge on constitutional quee
tious is profound, and he has the In
terests of his State a iieart. Ou ques
tious relating to Virginia and Virgin
laiis, Mr. Gordon is one of the best]
authorities. Mr. Gordon is yet iv the i
prime of life, but he has fought his I
»to the front rank in his chosen
•ssion. He has also served Vir
ginia iv other ways, for years being a
member of the board of directors of
the University of Virginia. As an
orator and author, he is also promin
At the dedieatien of the new
dings at the University of Virginia,

c and read the commemoration ode.
be Hon. Mieajah Woods of Albe
le is also oue of the most promiueut
sts iv the State, and is generally
>gn'zed as one of Virginia's most
ned lawyers.
o these three men will probably be
rusted the work of framing the new I
stitution for Virginia. In the
- .on of the most couservative men
he State, tbe work could be left to
no better bands.
Mississippi Wins Out
One of the curiosities of legislation
is that it is always the unexpected that I
happens somewhere between the Bret
reading and the ultimate decision of
tbe United States Supreme Court.
Tliub there was Mr. C ruin packer, of
Indiana, who for years has been trying
to diufrancbise a Southern State or
two. He was particularly bent on giv
ing Mississippi a black eyo in the new
apportionment. WbiletheCrumpack
er bill did not attain a reserve seat in
Congress, the Burleigh bill did, by
virtue of whicli there was an increase
of 28 members of Congress. Curiously
enough Georgia, with an immense
minor fraction, which has refused
to interfere with negro suffrage,
failed to gain a new member, while
Mississippi, which has knocked tbe'
negro incontinently into space, has an I
increase of one, aud still more curious
ly this new member will go to that sec '
tion of that State most largely com
posed of disfranchised citizens.
The negro, however, cares but very
little for all this. By almost every
train negroes are leaving Georgia,
where they have every right unob
struoted, and going to Mississippi,
where they know the ballot box is
closed against them Verily, there are
many queer things.—Atlanta Consti

Will tiet a Fortune.
It is said that Baron yon Rotseuu

L VEST'S PIGS.
Tioßoh He Had Bought Them, His Op
ponents Ready to Prove Theft.
fThat reminds me," said Governor
Crittenden, of Missouri, to a Kansas
Cify Star man -'that over thirty years
ago I heard Senator Vest tell a very
amusing story on himself, which shows
how often, or how occasionally, an in.
noeent man must confess guilt to avoid
puaishment. He said he was a candW
I date for the Legislature in Cooper
county in 18G0 against Thomas Me.
Dearmon and Judge Walker of this
city. It was a close aDd exciting can
vass, involving, in ibe daily discussion
the approaching secession and war
questions. It was Vest's first candi
daev for office, although his reputation
as an orator was rapidly spreading over
Missouri. No one of the three candi.
datt" favored secession per se at that
time Vest was rapidly drifting in
that direction. The friends of the
candidates had made a personal house
to-house canvass and each claimed the
viatory from three to five majority)
Vest was supposed to be in the lead by
the more disinterested canvassers. A
few days before the election a story
was put afloat that Vest had stolen
three pigs of the value of $6, and they
had been found in his pig-sty at his re
sidence in Boonville. Vest said he was
so hard pressed by the charge, and it
was doing him so much harm that he
had to come out and acknowledge that
the pigs were found in his pen or else
he would be defeated.
The crowds were large that attended
the daily discussion and the excitement
ran very high. The day before the
cauv-a s closed it was well known
throughout the county that Vest had
to meet the charge in bis next speech,
eiiher in Boonville or Bunceton, which
caused tbe crowd to be unusually large.
The partisans of each candidate were
present in great numbers and seemed
so deeply interested that no one could
foretell what would be the result. Vest,
in that peculiary happy style of his,
was equal to the occat-ion. He appear
ed 'on. tiie hui'ings in the be?* «**. h«"
--mor, and his face was radiant with
joy. That silvery voice of his was
clear as a sunbeam. He said he had
two: sons that had very much of the
trait of many Blis-ouriaus about them ;
they had traded an old pocket knife, a
M:nts iv money, an old brass ring,
few other such trinkets toa 'nig
r the pigti on the streets in Boon
ville, and it was the boye who had put
the pigs into his pen without his knowl
edge, and they were the stolen property,
Rwas ready to pay for them. As
ts his explanation was made
friends gathered renewed
h aud made the welkin ring with
their shouts. It saved the day for
! Vest.
"\est said tbat,.had he denied the
charge his opponents stood "ready to
prove it, and a warrant was there for
his arrest. He said that he cast no re
flections upon his chileren, as there
was no father who did not know that
his boys would trade all day on a
Barlow knife, and for anything to be
trading. This was the commencement
of Vest's political life. Had he been
defeated it may be he never would
have became United States Senator
and would never have been known
throughout the couutry as one of its
foremost orators and greatest debators.
"After Vest had told me this story J
said to him : 'That was a very good
campaign dodge of yours. Now tell
me the truth about the pigs.' He re
plied : "I myself had bought them of
tbe nigger, expecting to have a Christ
mas pig for dinner as a jollification after
the election' "—lnter-Ocean.

The question, "Doss the Constitu

by a Louisville society woman. "lt|
seems* to me such a matter is easily
deckled," she remarked. "It is sup.l
posed they are partners, just as my I
husband and I. We go out together
say to tbe theater. If many husband
gets up and leaves the house between
tbe acts 1 know he has merely stepped
out for a moment to see a friend
or a sick man, and wait patient |
iy until he comes back. If he
gives me a hint to tbe contrary 11
know he is going for something of im-1
portance. and rise and follow. In the I
■way the Constitution should foi* I

with this she folded her atniß I
and rested on her laurels as if inviting
some one to step up and ask her some
thing steeper.- -Louisville Times I

PENT CASH TO PRINCES.
of' Sam' 1 Lewis, a Noted Figure
*
Samuel Lewis, a noted money lender,
ef London, who has been called the
"modern Shylock," is dead.
What Isaac Gordon was to the
ranks of the "hard up" in the profes
sional and middle classes of England,
"Sam" Lewis, as he was widely called,
was to the titled aristocracy.
He was a power in the land. In bis
clutches he held title deeds of ancient
estates aud securities of almost fabu
lous amounts deposited as pledges for
his loans. At any moment he could
reduce to absolute beggary many of
tbe proudeut peers and peeresses of the
Uuited Kingdom, His deed boxes it
opened to public inspection could a
tale unfold of impecunious monarcbe
and princes courting his favor to re
lieve their want of cash.
Personally Lewis had pleasing man
ners and knew well how to keep on
good terms with his clients. He was a
regular- visitor to Monte Carta and
often took large sums to risk for the
accommodation of any of his friends
who might be tempting fortune there.
He was even asaed to meet the Prince
of Wales at the home of a mutual ac
quaintance. At one time he held in
pawn the crown of Portugal. Costly
coronets and tiaras iv his strong chest
represented the temporary obligations
to his purse of dukes and dutchesses.
Sometimes the debtors turned, and
Lewis with some unwillingness press
ed for his bond in the open law oourt.
The judge held that the money lender
was entitled to the ordinary rights of
British subjects and that the debtor
must pay. But such proceedings, of
course, were avoided by be money
lender as detrimental to his interests.
There were unavoidable exposures of
his network of operations when some
startling case of ruin came under pub
lie uotice. Suoh was the case of the
Marquis ot Conegall, who was declar
ed a bankrupt for |2,500,000, which he
had borrowed on his prospects of sue
cession to the family estates.
Thiuugh the hands of Lewis passed
the magnificent estate of Coruburg
Park, in Oxfordshire, the deedß of
which were handed over to him by
Lord Churchill, one of the branch of
the Marlborough family. So with Kiin
bolton Castle, ou which the late Duke
of Mauehester. father of the present
Duke, gave a mortgage of $200,000.
The seat of Viscount Hill, Hawkstone
Hall, near Shrewsbury, was mortgaged
to Lewis for $450 000 and the money
lender acquired in a similar way the
Thames Villa, near Maidenhead,
owing to tbe indebtedness of the
Dowager Cowley.
Another noted ease wai that of 1
Lewis cashing for Lord William Nevill,
third son of the Marquis of Abergaven
ny, promissory notes for $55,855, ind
orsed by Mr. Spencer Clay, Clay refused
to pay, on tbe ground that his signa
ture had been obtained by fraud, and
was sustained in a jury, Lewis failing
iv the suit he brought against Clay for
recovery. At the trial it was testified
that Clay was invited to a house party
at Ascot, and there Nevill,another of
the guests, had gained Clay's signature
to the notes, telling him, it was alleg
ed that they rolated to some matri
monial troubles of Lord William's
sister. Lord William was stated to
have been already indebted to Lewis
for $350,000, a sum which was after
ward paid. j
Transactions of Lewis' money-lend
ing business were unually effected
quietly and comfortably in offices in
Cork street iv the West End, where
women of rank and fashion could pass
in and out with little risk of obeerva-1
