This being the case he will Barely lead one in a few days, if be has not been leading it ever since the la- j men ted Judge Paul passed to thatl bourne from whence no traveler re- The number of applicants who will besiege the President for the shoes of this deceased jurist will be as crows in tne Piedmont secton of Virginia,- or as the fabled locusts of Egypt. Fight ing grizzly bear apon the Rockies, hunting the white goat in tbe Sieras, or the lion on tbe craggy slopes of Col orado, will be mere pnstime beside the straggle he will undergo in handling the multitudes who will seek his pres ence to vouchsafe their counsel and advice on this absorbing subject. Tbe ability of Virginia lawyers, their splendid records as men, their great learning, their honesty, their in tegrity, their sacrifice for Republican ism, if they be Republicans; and their disloyalty and treachery to Democracy, if they be gold Democrats; along with their other blooming virtues, will be heaped in such piles before him as to stagger any ordinary mortal, and such as would entirely overwhelm a man of less fortitude than onr strenuous president. Tbe president will wonder surely where all these great and good men have been in hiding, why be has not heard of the majority of them be fore, and how one little old fashioned behind the time commonwealth like .his houses them all, and .upports them all. This will, if he allows his mind to dwell on the subject, give him a night mare. But should he see the canddidates themselves, he would have the question fairly well answer- Ed, for be would see, barring a few honorable exceptions, the hungryest, most cadaverous gang of office seekers bis gaze ever fell upon. No State could support and la. .en such a horde. They must needs be lean and hungry, they m ust needs wear their garments, and shoes down at the heel, they must needs allow their hair to grow a little long and their beards to go nnshaven. The loins from "which they sprung were the loins of noble ancestry who toiled not, and this noble trait descend ed to their noble prosterity, who toil not. The President would see, if he beheld them, a set of tbe most remark able characters ever congregated out side of a lunatic asylum, an alms house or a Joil. He would see in all of them men who badly need the place, in all of them men who are willing to serve, in nearly all men who are unfit to hold that or any other position of dignity or importance. Unless he takes the bull by the horns and quickly settles thequertion, he is liable to have all the Republican, all the mugwump and ali the gold bug lawyers in Virginia, and not a few Democratic ones besieging the White House and begging for recognition. We have no suggestion to make to the President on this important subject, but will say when he appoints one, we believe he will wish he bad appointed another. And no matter whom he ap- j points, he will make thereby one in- J giine and a thousand enemies. 1 -EN. ROSSER AS A BUGABOO. Madam Rumor, who has always got her tongue going, is now talking freely about the influence Gen. Rosser is likely to exert with the present admin istration, and she says it will be con siderable. Not long since a bevy of Virginia Republican politicians call ed on the President, among them were some of the most brilliant lights in the political arc light business in the State. Men who have not only had a hand on th _ valve which moved the political machinery in Virginia for some time and who ground out that resolution at the Roanoke convention endorsing the Hon. Marcus A. Hanna for presi dent in 1804, but who have really been the machine itself, and who have been active in limiting Gen. Rosser's power and influence with the former admin istration, and doubtless would do so with the present one if they coald. Along with this bevy mirabile dictu was Gen. Rosser. The call was brief and perfunctory, but as the party was withdrawing the President called to Gen. Rosser and asked him to remain. Gen. Rosser did remain, and it is said ther_ has been a quaking in that bevy of politicians ever since. Knees have been smiting each other and faces are blanched with fear. Mr. Roosevelt is a man of surprises, and there are those who believe be has a surprise of a very large character which he will present some of the Virginia politicians about Christmas if not before. In the mean tiire Gen. Rosser hovers as a bugaboo before their eyes. Admiral William T. Sampson along with President Roosevelt, Booker T. Washington and other now distin guished men, received the degree of L. L. D. at Yale a few days ago. Samp son is lucky, He got all of Schley's prize money, he got medals struck with his image and superscription on them, and he got this degree. Not one single one of these honors or emolu ments did he deserve. He will soon, we think, receive something he does deserve, and that will be the contempt of the American people. JUDGE JOHN PAUL. The death of the Hon. John Paul, Judge of the United States District Court for the Western District of Vir ginia, which occurred of Friday last at his residence in Harrisonburg, though expected was nevertheless a shock to bis many friends, and d_eply regretted by all who knew him. Judge Paul was a native of Rock ingham county, where he had a wide circle of relatives and a wider circle of friends. He was a Confederate soldier of valor, and his army life en deared him to many of the old soldiers, especially of the Valley. He was a man of many lovable traits of charac ter, of culture and profound legal learning, iocorruptable as a judge, faithful as a friend, kind and indul gent as a husband and father, and courteous as a gentleman. It is with profound sorrow we announce his death. It was our privilege to know him intimately in his earlier life and to have preserved the friendliest rela tions with him to his death, and we add this our humble tribute to his memory, wishing that there were more as true and good men in Virgin ia as be. CAPT. WARREN S. LURTY OF HARRI SONBURG. Capt. Lurty is an applicant for TJ. S. District Judge to fill the place of Judge Paul, deed. Capt. Lurty was for 18 months a private in tbe Staun ton Artillery, and afterwards a cap tain of artillery. He wss the first ex- Confederate officer to join the Repub lican party in Virgin! md canvassed for Gen. Grant. He was for 10 years U. S. Attorney for this district, was a fine officer and much loved by all the people without party distinction, on account of his ability as a lawyer and his fairness in the conduct of the gov eminent business. Capt. Lurty was twice elector at-large on the McKinley ticket, he is a strong and able man and a native Virginian. His appoint ment will give bis friends great satis faction. „ If any colored lawyer in Virginia is applying for the late Judge Paul's po sition what is tftere to prevent his getting it ? i_SpK Virginia Democratic By ?O,COO. In Maryland a Democratic Legislature was Elected. large indicate that tbe Democratic tick et will have a plurality of from 30,000 to 35,000. Col. Ca'lett, of Rockbridge, was defeated by Geo. A. Revercomb i of Alletch.uy, for the Senate. Rock'-| bridge, Rockingham, Shenandoah Page, Kelson, Alleghany, Bath and' Highland elect Republican members of the Legislature. The greatest surprise of the campaign comes from the Ninth District where the Republicans regarded their tickets I as safe in nearly all the counties. A great change came throughout the Southwest within the past ten days fol lowing the tour of Mr. Montague and the campaign of Congressman Rhea. The presence of Hon. Samuel L. Kelly and Judge James W. Marshall last week in the district did much to cut down Republican votes. The next Legislature will be over whelmingly Democratic as in the House seventy-seven members ar. safe and of the twenty-three in doubt t_ey will get a few more. Out of eight candidates for the State Senate Lne Republicans only elected one. There were twenty one senators elected but only eight had opposition. Twenty were elected as Democrats. MARYLAND. The Democratic elected a majority of the Legislature in Maryland, thus insuring the election of Hon. Arthur F. Gorman to the U. S. Senate to suc ceed, Senator Wellington. Baltimore city gave a Republican majority aud the whole city ticket elected is Repub lican. _, KENTUCKY. This elected a Democratic Legisla ture by an increased majority. J_x- Senator Joe Blackburn will be elected ' to succeed Senator Duboe. " I' NEW YOEK CITY. The fushion ticket from Seth Low down is elected. Jerome, for district attorney, whom Tammany made a spe cial effort to defeat, wins by a good margin. Mayor Van Wyck, for Su preme Court justice, ran mo_e than 20.000 behind the rest of tbe Tammany ticket. Low's plurality will reach 30,000, a marvelous sweep, considering that Greater New York has a normal democratic plurality of from 80,000 to 100,000. Even a fusion board of alder men seems, from the returns this morn ing, to have been elected. The board will probably stand—fusion 38, demo cratic 35. FENNSYLVANI". The victory of the Qn y-Ashbridge machine in Philadelphia is emphatic. The plurality of John Weaver, regular republican candidate for district; at torney, is, in round numbers, 43,000. Returns received at Harrisburg indi cate that Frank Harris, republican, has been elected State treasurer over Elisha A. Coray by over 50.000 plural ity. Coray is the fusion candidate. NEW JERSEY. Returns from all over tbe State give Murphy, Rep., a plurality of 15,000 over Seymour, Dem. NEBRASKA. The Republican elected their entire ticket by from 6,000 to 8,000. Massachusetts, Ohio and lowa also gave their usual Republican majori ties. J > Vint—Trout. 1 A quiet wedding was solemnized at i the home of the bride's sister, Mrs C i H.

The ceremony was very impressively performed by Uev. J. E. Armstrong, Presiding Elder of the Rockingham District, M. E Church, South. Only a few relatives of the contract ing parties were present. After the ceremony, a dinner was given the hap py conple, who took their departure lor a visit to relatives in Rockingham county.

Odell more than he could re. sist and as a result, it has been given out atjthe Treasury that Mr. George N. Whitehead, now Collector of Cus toms, for Porto Rico, will be appoint ed to the Appraisership of New York iv the place of Mr. Wilbur F. Wake man, the present incumbent. As in dicated in these letters some weeks past, Senator Piatt came to Washing ton for the express purpose of getting Mr. Wakeman's official scalp. On in vestigation. Colonel Roosevelt found that Mr. Wakeman had sinned only by a failure iv subserviency to the New York boss and he advised the Senator that he found no cause for removing him. About this time Secretary Gage en dorsed Mr. Whitehead for the place and Piatt joined issues with.the Secre tary of the Treasury and wrote to the President, endorsing him also. Still the President stuck to his colors, but Piatt came to Washington again and so did Odell, and both represented that the discipline of the New York ma chine was at stake, and that it ws« es sential to the best Interests of the or ganization. that Wakeman be made an example of. The matter terminated by the President giving in as above stated. Another test of the President _ loyal ty to bis former principles is involved in the case of Commissioner Hoden burg, of the Civil Service Commission. It will be recalled that Mr. Rodenburg was appointed to the Commission af ter the adjournment of the last Con gress, which will necessitate the pre sentation of his name to the Senate, for confirmation, at tjhe coming ses sion. Mr. Rodenburg was not a Civil Service reformer when he was appoint ed by the late President, aud his ap pointment was a concession to the spoils men of the republican party, who de sired a friend at court. The appoint ment was deplored by many republi cans at the time, who believed that, however, much the President might see fit to restrict the authority of the Commission, the Commission itself Kht to be Kept free from anyone not ntire sympathy with the purpose for which it was created. Since his appointment, Mr. Rodenburg has not demonstrated any particular hostility, although the Commitsion has permit ted some wide deviations from the spirit of the law. and in favor of the spoilsmen. Mr. Rodenburg has a powerful lepublican faction back of him aud it will require the utmost courage for the President to signify a desire for his resignation. Although the address of Secretary Wilson, delivered at Dysart, lowa, on on Saturday, has been heralded as coming pretty straight from the White House, it is a very weak production. It goes back to the old fashioned Re publican doctrine, that the United States ought to practically build a wall about its shores and conduct its International affairs along lines that the Chinese boxers would adopt if they could. The Secretary holds up as a sort of economic millenium the time when, economically or otherwise, the United States will produce everything it üßes in its own territory and appears to forget completely that only a few months ago, the late President made the sage remark that "we must not ex- It is thought here that Mr. Wash burn, of Minneapolis, is rather coming to the support of Representative Bab cock, of Wisconsin, in his fight against the steel trust. In a recent interview, Mr. Washburn says that steel rails can be made and sold in this country at $17.50 per ton, and that that figure would give a larger percentage of profit than the millers can make on their flour; but they are sold at $88 per ton, and that the trust pays a handsome profit on a capital stock that is more Rhalf water, and in order to enable j ust to do this. Congress maintains I utv of $7.80 per ton. In conclu sion, he says "if this is not robbery, I would like to find a stronger word to | characterize it. There are rumors afloat that the democrats will invite Admiral Schley to bead their next Presidential ticket, but they are regarded as mere rumors by all of the Democrats I have met in Washington. As a matter of fact, no one knows what Admiral Schley's po litics are, nor if Ie is in sympathy with any of the traditions of the par ty beyond what may be inferred from the fact that he is a Marylander. It is even intimated that the rumors have been started to hurt Schley, as it is well known that the insiguiflcant lit tle presidential bee that got into Ad miral Dewey's bonnet, injured him. The indications are that Admiral Schley has too much f?ood sense to even listen to the siren voice of political ambition. A prominent Democratic Senator re cently called my attention to the fact that the old law which prohibits any one from sailing, as an American shjp, any vessel which was not buit in the United States, is still in vogue. He claims that were this law repealed most of the alleged necessity for a Ship Sob sidy bill, would disappear and that American Commerce will resume its normal proportions, "proportions which have absolutely atrophied un der a law enacted in a vain attempt to divert unearned profits to a few Maine shipbuilders." When Rear Admiral Urowninshield I retires from the head of the Bureau of J Navigation, he will also retire from his , Rear Admiralty and become once more ■ a simple Captain. His appointment to the European station will necessitate his.promotion to the rank of Admiral By the President and the confirmation of the appointment by the Senate. It is by no means impossible that be will encounter too many friends of Admiral Schley in the Senate, to permit of con firmation, in which case, he will be compelled to take a ship in the squa dron of some other officer to whom he would be subordinate or to apply for his retirement. A Washington correspondent tells of the meeting between the President and Peter Dunne, author of the fa mous "Dooley" letters, at the Nation al Convention in Philadelphia. Short- I ly before Dunne had written bis "Alone in Cuby" in which he had made Dooley portray Roosevelt as writing the story of the Cuban war, as if he had fought it all by himself. When Colonel Roose velt met Dunne he said "l? y Godfrey, Mr. Dunne, I would rather meet you than any man in this hall. You gave me the worst roasting I ever got, and my wife has read it to me seventeen times when she thought I needed dis cipline but it was the best thing you ever wrote. Judge John Paul, of the U. 8. Dis trict Court for tbe Western District of Virginia, died at his home in Harri sonburg on Friday at noon, aftera long illness, of Bright's disease and a com plication of diseases. His funeral took place Saturday afternoon. John Paul was born in 1839 near Paul's Mill in Rockingham county, Va He was a son of Peter Paul, now de | ceased, a farmer well known in this sec j tion of the Valley. His boyhood days were spent on the farm, working In summer and attending district school in winter. In 1859 '60 he taught school for tbe purpose of securing means with which t_ further pursue his studies, and in the fall of the latter year he en tered Roanoke College, Salem, Va. At the outbreak of the Civil War he left college and was one of a number of students who enlisted iv the Salem Ar tillery. After serving with that com mand for twelve months he joined the Fifth Virginia Cavalry, with which he continued during the remainder of his army service. He was severely wounded at C__jlett's Station, previous to the second battle of Manassas. In 1864 he was taken prisoner at the bat. tie of the Wilderness and was confined in Front Delaware until tbe close of hostilities. After the war he did not return to college, but entered the law school of the University of Virginia, where, in 1867, fie graduated, and the same year began the practice of his profession iv Harrisonburg. At the bar his ability and personal popularity soon secured bim a liberal practice, and in 1870 be was elected Commonwealth's Attorney for Ithe county of Rockingham, lie made a fine record as a resolute and competent prosecuting attorney, and he was twice re elected to the office. His taste for politics and his talent for political leadership made him a promi nent figure in the early agitation of the State debt settlement, and in 1877 he became a candidate for the State Sen ate. He carried his county by a good majority and the fallowing year was nominated by the Readjuster party as its candidate for Congress in the Sev enth District, having as his opponent Judge John T. Harris, his townsman and personal friend. Capt Paul had an enthusiastic following in the dis trict but Judge Harris was re-elected. Two years late he was again unani mously nominated for Congress by the Readjusters, and this time he was suc cessful, carrying tbe district over Judge Henry C. Allen, of Shenandoah county, by a majority of 725. In 1682! he was nominated for a second term. Colonel Charles T. O'Ferrali was his opponent. Paul was eiected on the face of the returns and received the certificate. A contest was instituted by the Democrats, and Colonel O'Fer rali was awarded the seat after Capt. Paul has retired to accept the United States judgeship. While serving his second term in Congress, Judge Alexander Rives re tired from the United States District Court for the Western District of Vir ginia, and through General William Mahone's influence (then a senator from Virginia) the appointment was tendered to Capt. Paul by President Arthur, March, 1883. He went on the bench in the fall of 1883 and discharged the duties of the office with marked industry and ability until incapacitat ed by his dual illness. Judge Paul was exceedingly happy in his domestic life. His wife, who survives him, was Miss Kate S. Green, of Warren county, a lady of fine liter ary talent. He leaves six children, the eldest daughter being the ' wife of Greeulee D. Letcher, of J«xington. The ot tiers are younger and at home. How's This ?
