Waters has been dismiss- j ed from the position he has so long and ably held as chief of police of this city. I The causeß which led up to this action on the part of the city council will never be fully explained, if any real causes existed. The action of our city council sometimes puts us in mind of a justice of the peace who was on one occasion seen kicking a predatory sow, just, as he said, to let it know there was an officer around. Whenever times grow dull with the city council, they take occasion to let somebody know there is a city council around. This seems to be one of the occasions. Seeing that this faithful and tried officer had been subjected to the guil lotine we began to enquire as to the whys and wherefores, and several causes were assigned. The first was that he was 73 years of age. So it was the old, old story, of the old horse be ing sent to the bone yard. Most peo ple were inclined to doubt the age theory, or they say oar vigilant coun cil would have begun on the Captain t everal years ago, when he was at the age of three score years and ten. The second story we heard was that the Captain's habits were so regular that his subordinates knew just when he was coming round, and of course when he got there they were doing their whole duty, no matter how little of it they might have been doing just before. This was a serious fault and ought we admit to lose him his official head. No man In Staunton can' have regular habits and enjoy respect, and a chief of police who cannot watch his subor dinates as well as all the other people in Staunton who.need watching is not fit for the place. As strange as it may seem the fact that < 'apt. Waters did not watch his subordinates sufficiently close, was assigned as a serious charge against him and helped to displace him, if reports be true. No complaint, so far as we have heard, has been laid against those subordinates who, we must infer from this, needed watching. Of the two we are certain which most people would have first discharged,lf the alle gation be true. Again we were told that Capt. Wa ters is too frail to grapple with a thief. When, pray, did that duty fall on our policemen, or if it be a part of their duty, when was it performed ? Have any thieves been grappled with here of late by our stalwart policemen I Who grappled with the thief who smashed 1). L. Switzer's plate glass window and raked out diamonds till he got tired? Who grappled with the safe blowers who shook the town with dynamite when they robbed the Staun ton Milling Company some years ago? Grappling with thieves is by no means the duty of a policeman, so that charge ought to have no weight. Of course the work of looking up dogs for taxa tion, listening for leaks in water pipes and walking about in private houses for that purpose, attending the theater, the circus, watching a game of pool or billiards, warming by the bar room stove in winter, must be carefully performed, and bowing to the council, pulling this or that politi cal string, are things which Capt. Waters may not have performed to the entire satisfaction of the city council, hence his decapitation. Capt. .Waters has lost his youth, he has more probably lost his political influence, he has in all probability not bowed low enough when some council man passed by, he is not in the click or the ring, he was in somebodys way and he had to get out or be kicked out. He did not get out so he was kicked out. He has the good fortune, however, of possessing the respect of a large number of people in the city of Staun ton, he has the heritage of a good name—which is better than great riches, but most of those on whose friendship he could rely, who were his companions in times which tried men's eouis, have been laid to rest, a new set has the reins and some of them care no more for faithful services, or devotion to duty, than they care for the worm beneath their feet. Capt. Waters may solace his remaining years with the consciousness that he has faithfully performed bis official duties so much so that his fellow citizens are saying, "Well done thou good and faithful servant." It will be lucky for some of those who dug his official grave if the same can ever be said of them. yEMARKABLE OVERSIGHT, ilex. F. Robertson and Capt. . Opie are the two gentlemen ! Tar have announced themselves j idat.es for the Senate from this county. This may complete the list. but it is still some time beiore the day tno more names can be added, irds of both gentlemen are to be in the columns of the Sneer a We cannot refrain from calling .ion to one very marked feature in both, and that is, that reference is nowhere made to the Democratic party, save and except that Mr. Rob ertson addresses his announcement "To the Democrats of the county of Au gusta and the city of Staunton. 1 ' Capt. Opie "To my Fellow Citizens," but neither offers to submit his claim to the action of the Democratic party . This may have been an oversight in both gentlemen, and we hope it was. J It if not too late to correct the errorl if it wu made thoughtlessly. ■lon. Edward Echols has wltb from the gubernatorial raca. This was of course expected and ere- I no surprise. The only surprise :h has been created was the action me portions of the county toward faithful, able, unvarying Demo, , who has always been found in the t place when the interests of our people have been involved, who has contributed of his time and means to- j ward Democratic success and good government whenever called upon. There are persons who attended the mass meeting on May -7 who we sup-1 pose imagined they made somebody believe they were friendly to Mr. Echols, but whose kiss was the kiss of j Judas; and whose actions ought to have been exposed that day, because it was as apparent then as now, that j they were for him with their mouths only. The mask should have been ■from the masqueraders at that and the hollowness of their devo exposed, let the consequences been what they may. When the time honored nsage of a candidate for so high a position, was sought by Mr. ( is'friends, of allowing him to Ikose assistants who would help Lgbt the battle at Norfolk, the ege was denied him, and persons loubtless would have rejoiced at sfeat, ware forced upon him as ites on the plea that to select del •tes otherwise would be undemo cratic. In such cases as this party policy disappears and loyalty to the candidate is the ruling power. If Mr. I Is had a battle to fight he certaiu s the man to choose his lieuten- If he could be entrusted with iffiee of governor he certainly be entrusted with the selection j delegates from this city and ;y. But this right was, as we say, id him. Not out of loyalty to him c party, but out of direct hostili ty to his candidacy. No other motive could have inspired the action, and the object has not and never can be concealed. This we say is the surprise of the campaign and causes many real friends of Mr. Echols deep and lasting mortification, because it passed unre- WHEN HE BECOMES GOVERNOR. Mr. J. Hampton Hoge, who is about to start on the long and tortuous jour ney to the gubernatorial mansion, has been reminded often of a journey he once started upon as a U. S. Consul, and before he got his foot off the soil of the United States he was recalled by a certain G rover Cleveland. Some friends of the erstwhile Consul say that it is mean and low bred to remind Mr. Hoge of the many, many things that transpired in that short experience, others say that but for the seemingly unpropitious trip he made to Califor nia he would still be groveling in the mire of Democracy, and contend that Mr. Hoge treasures every happening of those days as a miser treasures his gold. He is said to have hanging somewhere either 011 the walls of his Kor his mind, pictures of various of public resort on the Pacific slope. He no doubt has the original beer glasses and wine glasses, which like tne flowing bowl, entered into the merry making of that festive occasion. He has preserved also the original tele gram which caused him to see the light of the Republican heaven, signed "Grover Cleveland." These will look ■11 in the mansion in Richmond, as points with pride to their usefulness, their value, and how they helped make a man and a governor of him, when he becomes governor. Yes, when he becomes governor. | Our State Convention is wrestling with the suffrage question. This is the knotty question, the question which is all absorbing. There is one thing that has been fully demonstrat ed and that is, that there is no ani mosity toward the negro as such, but there is a determination to make igno rance and vice a bar to the exercise of this high privilege. It is certain that an uneducated person will have diffi culty in voting though he may try, but it is also certain that persoDs who pay uo taxes will be excluded—these cannot get into the booths. We are glad the prejudice against the negro which our Northern friends have so persistently declared was the object Of the convention, has not materialized. This feeling we know did not inspire the con\ ention, It was never held for the purpose of getting rid of the negro, and now that such is apparent we hope the Lodges and the Crumpackers may find time for some other than force bills, and depriving the State of her proper representation, though they will die hard, they realizing that to damn the south, is the safest guy to their political masts. A question has arisen as to what our city council means by holding a cau cus. The council is supposed to be composed entirely of Democrats. If this be so then a caucus is uncalled for, aud must be held simply to do be hind closed doors what it does not feel desirous of doing in the full light of day. This is an interesting question and any one may explain through our columns why a body composed entire ly of one political faith holds a caucus. We confess we do not know. Col. We A. Anderson, of Rock bridge, has announced his candidacy for the office of Attorney-General. It is always a pleasure to us to even con template voting for Col. Anderson for office. Unfortunately Col. Anderson comes from the Valley of Virginia, a section not known to other parts of the State as having political rights, and whose own citizens have lost all ambi tion to see their sectioD honored. If Col. Anderson Is a native of Rock bridge it will be remarkable if he should be able to carry his own county as so few counties in the Valley have any Virginia Summer Normal Schools, season 1901.

Will Mr. McKinley face i that music or will he fire Evans ? j That is the question of the hour in Senator Quay has known for a long time that Mr. McKinley was neither an admirer of himself nor of the peculiar methods of his followers in Pennsyl vania politics, but that knowledge did not prevent his requesting Mr. Mc- Kinley to prevent Postmaster General lorn taking an active part in m campaign against the Quay 'hiladelphia—a campaign that cClure.the veteran editor, de be simply a light of honesty wholesale thievery.
