Entered at the Postoffiee at Staunton, Vs., as second class mall matter. Friday, April 7,1905. THE FI6HT IS ON. Many people in Augusta and Staun ton know that Senator Thomas S. Martin was a visitor amongst us last week. That Senator Martin was well received goes without saying. So ex cellent a man, and so faithful a repre sentative, could not fail of a cordial reception even though he might have been without supporters here, which he is not. Senator Martin has sup porters in Staunton and A ugusta. He has a good many of them, bat we do not think he has by far enough to in sure bis election in this county. His reception was, as we say, cordial, but it was by no means enthusiastic- There were a number of callers who wished to meet and become acquaint ed with him, there were also "tbe faithful" who made a point of calling. These bore words of encouragement, these have a habit of thinking tbat everybody else thinks as they think, and they saw rosy hues on the clouds. The bar of Staunton seems largely for Mr. Martin. It has somehow come to tbe minds of many of the eminent lawyers of Virginia, and those who would be, though possibly are not cmi- j Kit, that a lawyer must he a supporter! Senator Martin. Tbey have taken ns to impress this phenomenon on tbe public, and rejoice in the thought themselves. This tact, however, has to some extent weakened Mr. Martin amongst the people, in tbat it has given rise to the favorite expression of "Ring" politics. In this there 1b really nothing of fact, except that the law yers are generally more active in their efforts and louder in their expressions of opinion. The fact, however, tbat tbey have become so unanimously lined up for Mr. Martin causes some vexation to the people, if not some apprehension that tbe general Inter ests of labor and agriculture might not be properly protected, and tbe in terests of corporations too well pro tected. On tbe other band tbey know that Mr. Montague does get down closer to the people, tbat this very fact which his opponents charge is part of his political policy, is a great disturber, and tbat tbey would do tbe same thing if they could, goes without saying. Mr. Montague, we hear It charged, has lost strength since be became gover nor, and that Mr. Martin has gained strength recently. The loss of strength to Mr. Montague is certainly imagi nary. It is doubtful if a real Monta gue man has changed in the last four years. Borne "trimmers''may now be outspoken for Martin who professed to be for Montague when he ran for governor, but tbe rank and tile are as to Montage just where they were four years ago. Why should tbey change t What have either Mr. Martin or Mr. Montague done to cause changes '.- Mr. Montague was overwhelmingly tbe choice of tbe people for governor, and tbe same people are for bim today. Mr. Martin, on tbe other hand, is not a magnetic man, and his sudden change from gold to silver, his lukewarm sup port of tbe Democratic ticket in 1696 and 1900, and his recent utterances against Mr, Bryan, have not tended to Strengthen bim with the people. Mr. Montague is a magnetic speak er, he is by far the ablest Btumper in Virginia today, whilst Mr. Martin is J not strong on the stump. The fight will be a most interesting «ne, and will to a large extent eclipse the gubernatorial contest. Mr. Mar tin the favorite of the politicians, and Mr. Montague the favorite of the peo THE C. &. 0. STATION. Last week we could see no buds on the new passenger depot of the C. & O. Ry. This week we are to!d that the buds are really swelling and broad leaves will soon appear and Id a little while tbe new structure will bloom and blossom as the rose. We are informed that the railway has in mind tbe pur chase of a portion of Sear's Hill that it may cat it down and thus widen the road bed in front of the presant sta tion and otherwise benefit the road by straightening the terribly crooked tracks throneh the town. This looks gooo. to us. VV c further learn that the road tried, but has been unable to purchase tbe Bowling, Spotts & Co. building at the site of tbe present depot, and therefore cannot give us the broad and.commodious expanse of ground about tbe proposed station it would like. This is unfortunate. This certainly will be the ODly station that will be built by tbe C. & O. for many a weary year and if they have in mind any such project as spreading out their grounds after such fashion it will be an actual calamity not to suc ceed. What is tbe matter ? Did Bowling, Spotts & Co. ask too much, or did the company offer too little t Can a dividing line, cau a meeting point not be arrived at and thus tbe difficulty solved t A splendid improve ment ought not to be thwarted on ac count of a thousand or so paltry dol lars. Try and get together gentlemen and let the good work go on. A very strange thing has happened over in West Virginia. Some of tbe Republicans of tbat State have declin ed office. ] ROBERT. W. BURKE. irom bwuliou and Augusta one of tbe most successful business men of this day aud generation. Those who knew him well and were accustomed to see hiui and observe bis methods, saw in bim, tbe clearest insight into busiuefss propositions, the keenest perception of tbe strength or frailly of human nature, and were struck with the wisdom of bis methods, and the sagacity with which he bandied the [mauy and weighty problems intrusted to his care. For many years tbe sun had ncareely crept above tbe eastern mountains when he would be found King his way to his place of busi I . and those who worked under him knew tbat at tbe appointed hour for the days labor to begin tbey would tint him on hand. For this reason, if no other, it seldom happened any were late, and thus were bis business meth ods instilled into those immediately about him. Mr. Burke bad long been president Ke National Valley Bank, one of irgest, if not tbe very largest and gest institutions of tbe kind in alley of Virginia. In its conduct be took a peculiar and intense inter est. He watched every detail, be knew personally the accounts of every depos itor, he studied the standing financi ally of every borrower, be voted the effort of every man to whom the bank bad extended credit, to meet his obli gations, and those who failed to obtain further credit after previous exten sions might 'rest assured, that their cutting off was due to no captious desire to embarrass them, but because I of some failure to fulfill a previous promise, or some improper conduct in a business way . From a small and comparitively insignificant institution be reared a great financial structure, and recently crowned bis efforts by erecting upon the site of tbe old bank one of the most modern and elegant banking bouses in Virginia. It is no disparagement to his business associ ates to say tbat be was the head of tbe institution, because it is known of Bt whilst matters proposed by failed at times, none failed which Ivocated. and none succeeded which be opposed. It was a pleasure for real business men to approach bim on real business matters. In discussing their own affairs, be frequently injected into them ideas not before occurring and presented advantageous suggestions, Often profitably accepted It is the opinion of most men who knew Mr. Burke that whilst his field iv Staunton was limited, he would bave risen to the full statue of any business into which he entered. He was never a laggard, be was never slothful, he never stop ped half way in any undertaking, aud Ksome soar to eminence aud reach it by more difficult ap proaches, it is certain tbat he would have become eminent in any field for he did not stop short in any of his undertakings. Had bis lines been laid in Wall Street as tbey were in btaun ton he would have been found among those who controlled tbe great finan cial interests of today, for he knew no such word as fail. It is only of bis business life of which we will speak, because there are others who knew him in his religious, in bis social and borne life, as we did not know him, who are more able and better fitted to speak of these, but as a man of affairs and his relations to the public we did watch bis course and mingle with him sufficiently to gather some idea of tbe strength and power of his personality, and we cheerfully testify that in his chosen sphere he was one of the most astute, careful, industrious, capable and honorable business men with whom it has been our pleasure to associate, and that be has left an impress upon the business interests and methods in this comma- THE WABASH COMING EAST. cially announced that It will build east to tidewater this summer. If this an nouDuement has really been made this means a railway through Augusta or Rockingham. We do not know what line the road is likely to adopt, but as KVa. Ceutral made a survey ears ago before it sold to the bit may adopt that one. The mentioned left tbe line of the h's syßtem nortb of Durbin in mtas county, W. Va., thence across Alleghany to Crabbottom, I thence down through Vanderpool Gap, '■ thence by Monterey, thence by Mc-I Dowell and Doe Hill and across the I Shenandoah to Jenning's Gap, thence to Harrisonburg. From Harrisonburg to tidewater we do not believe they ever made a location. Now if this road should come east to Jenning's Gap, Mtauuton should wake up. It might be induced to come this way and cross at Rockfish Gap, the lowest gap in the Blue Ridge be tween Clifton Forge and Manassas Gap, ana directly iv line for Rich mond, Newport News or Gloster Point. It may not be known to tbe public generally that the best line the C. W. Railway could find across the Blue Ridge at Brown's Gap, had a tunnel of over two miles in length, and a very tortuous line east of the ridge. It is useless at tbis time to waste words on the advantages of such a line into Staunton, it is useless also to cite advantages of the main line over any branch that could be built. But as Staunton has never awakened to a connection with the Norfolk & Westrl em would she ever awake to one with the Wabash, which would be some thing longer and harder to build if that road goes through Rockingham? Would it not be well for our Board of Trade or some persons representing' the business interests of Staunton to make an effort to see Mr. Joseph Ram sey or Mr. George Gould, and call tbis matter to their attention,inasmuch as it is possible the exact route Las not as yet been fixed upon ? The postoffice at Stover, this county has been abolished, and all mail for that section now goes through the Churchville office. All tbat talk about a church not ac cepting tbe Rockafellergiftof $100,000 is mere word play. Few but would come mighty near accepting it if it came from Caofield the noted New York gambler. Show us achurch that is not sufficiently jesuislical to do such an evil thing as accept money, that good may come of it, aud we will show you gold at the end of the rain bow. Tbe churches which turn down gifts of $100 000 are those which never had tbe upporl unity to behold such a sum except Iv their minds, when the ques tion is one simply of theory aud not of practice. (Prom our Kexulttr Correspondent.) Washington, D. C, April I—The gravest problem which has confronted the Congress of the United States since the question of secession was disposed of will be uppermost In the deliberations and debates of the Fifty-ninth Con gress which, the President has recent ly announced, be will assemble in ex traordinary session ou October lb, next. If the coming Congress does its duty it will largely determine for many fu ture decades the extent to wbiob tbe federal government shall go in its In terpretation of that clause in the coo lution which reads, "The Congress II have power to regulate com cc among tbe several States." pleas this statement appears it been construed with increasing tude until the Anti-Rebate law and Interstate Commerce Act have > declared to come within its scope the most important question eh tbe next Congress will nave to de is whether or not this clause tains sufficient wairant to enable gress to declare what shall aud X shall not be considered a just rale c charged by railroads for trans ition. Tbe proposition advanced Commissioner of Corporations (iar , tbat tbe federal government has power to compel all corporations sacting an interstate business to out a tederal license is also based lis clause as is the same official's losition that the federal govern t has tbe power to regulate the saction of insurance business. » ) those legislators who, with strict rd for their oath to support the titution, adopt a conservative view rdiog its interpretation, the radi calism ot the present administration, tne general disposition to maintain tbat the provisions of the constitution must be broadened in proposition to tbe growth and increasing complexity of the nation and the insistence in some quarters tbat a strict interpreta »ot the constitution is old fashion - od out of date, seems dangerous abhorrent. In a policy which would stretch the constitution beyond lavident meaning of its trainers, •y can detect nothing butportens of aster, the small beginning of what, :e adopted, will mean in time radi departnre from the constitution it and ultimately tbe adoption of ev form of radicalism demanded by >ular clamor. Iv support of this w they contend tbat it is manifest t tbe trainers of tbe constitution, the clause quoted, intended only to power the federal government so to ulate commerce between tue States » insure the absence of atldiscrimi ion and the abolitions of those cus is, duties aud other forms of embar which, during the days of Federa i, contributed so seriously to the which attended tbe nation in its incy. If the constitution iv its pres form is not suitable to existing con ditions, tbey argue, then let it be amended, but under no circumstances permit the slightest deviation from the true intent of tbe framers of tbat in strument. Those who oppose this view declare, however, that such a narrow view of ■nstitution itself, so .close au ad ice to the doctriue tbat the rights Sovereign States must uot be sd, will necessarily place the peo ple at the mercy of those corporate in terests which by the lavish use of money can always corrupt a sufficient nnmber of State legislatures to pre vent the success of any proposed amendment of the constitution, how ever meritorious, which would even tend to curtail tbe liberties or tbe li- j cense of corporate wealth. The pro- j blem is too deep for extensive discus sion in a news letter bat the foregoing assertions may serve in a measure to judicata to the thinkers of the nation the gravity and complexity of the pro blem with which the next Congress will' be called upon to deal. President Roosevelt, after consulting with Senators Gorman, Spooner and Lodge aud the members of his cabinet, has notified Santo Domingo of his as- j sent on behalf of the United States to tbe arrangement proposed by President Morales as the only practicable means of so preserving existing conditions in that distraught Republic as to make possible the execution of the provisions of tbe pendiug treaty in the event that the treaty is ratified by tbe Senate next autumn. The proposition of Santo Domingo was tnat President Roosevelt assent to tbe appointment of American citizens to take charge of the Dominican customs nous-, collect the revenues and pay to the Domincan government 45 per cent, of tbe gross receipts, the remaining 55 per cent., less the cost of collection, be deposited Ks New York bank to await tbe i»f the Senate, bmittiag the foregoing proposi resident Morales pointed out . .~.eign powers were unwilling to await the action of the United States Senate in the absence of some arrange ment which insure tne continuance of I existing conditions and the Dominican President's assertion has been prompt ly verified by the Italian Ambassador who yesterday called at tbe State De partment to learn officially if tbe re ported assent of President Roosevelt was correct and who then slattd tbat iv the absence of such assent bis coun try would have felt compelled to use j force in Santo Domingo to protect the j rights of its citizens. While much has appeared in the Public prints regard ing tbe liability of this country's bay- i ing to use force to maintain the Mor ales administration, there Is really lit tie likihood of such an emergency. All foreign powers have cheerfully agreed to the temporary arrangement accept-1 ed by President Roosevelt, aud in the absence of interference from without President Morales will doubtless be able to maintain order in his own couu-1 Tbe President hascalled for the res ignations of all the members of the] Panama Canal Commission and will soon issue a statement of tbe lines along which reorganization will be af fected. Tbe President will soon an nounce the personnel of tbe reorganized Commission, as soon, probably as he reaches San Antonio, if not before. He leaves Washington on Monday for a six weeks trip, which is to include attendance at the reunion of the Rough Riders at San Antonio, April 7, and a hunting trip in Colorado of several weeks duration. "BACK TO THE PEOPLE" Mr. Brvan Says Money Power la Losing Control. "Baca to the People !" was the sub ject of Hon. William J. Bryan's ad dress Saturday night at the Jefferson banquet of lowa Democrats. "Back to the people," be said, is the phrase that bost describes the tenden cy which is manifesting itself in the nation and in most of the States. For a period of years the tendency was to ward corporate domination, and the voice of the people grew weaker and weaker on tbe comparison with the in fluence of money.

Cure these with Ai-er's Pills. changed and evidences are seen »v where of a determination on tbe parr of the masses to assert themselves in tbe management of the parties and in the conduct of the (Government. "Public sentiment," said Mr. Bryan, j "is gradually crystalizing to tbe pro-! position that the people have a right to have what tbey want iv government and this, I seed not tell you, is the Democratic position. To deny either the capacity of tbe people forself-gov crnment or the right of the people to regulate their own affairs and to deal with all questions that concern them is treason to our theory of government, and this treason is about to be r bukad by a revival of faith iv the people. "Tbis tendency to restore iv the peo pie their lost rights and to nut them in possession of their own affairs is not going to stop with tbe trust question or with the railrotd question. It will extend to every issue. Wheu applied to tbe tariff question it will putan end to tbe system that has been in vogue for a quarter of a century, under which tbe manufacturers have been permit ted to write the schedules and deter-1 mine the amount of the collections that they must take from tbe people 'through tbe operation of bigh-tarif!' laws The application of tbis prinoiple will bring together tbe capitalist and the laborer—even the financial ques tion, which has not only been over shadowed by thequestion of monopoly, I but has Jesseued in importance by tbe increased volume of money—this que*-1 tion will also feel tbe impulse of the movement, 'back to the people!' The doctrine that a few financiers csn safely be permitted to dictate the fi nancial policy of the nation will be overthrown with the overthrow of the doctrine tbat railroad magnates can safely be allowed to control tbe traffic of the nation or trust magnates the in dustries of tbe country. "The Democratic positien is being vindicated and the Democrats face the future with hope and courage. The last election proved the folly of the at tempt to make tbe Democratic party a conservative party ora competitor with the Republican party for tue fa vor of the trusts and syndicates. The aggressive and progressive element— tbe radical element, if you please—of the Democratic party is again in con trol of the part?.
