Friday, June 4, 1909.
Judge Mann has been flaying Harry
Tucker alive, we are told—when Harry
was many miles away. The Judge
had ample opportunity to flay him the
first time they met at Warwick Court
House. Reports of that encounter tell
of flying epidermis, but the epiderm
was not Harry's. Again, Judge Mann
went to Christiansburg, cocked and
primed to entirely obliterate poor Har
ry. But his friends—Job had friends —
every candidate has friends—his
friends did not believe in joint debate
between persons of the same party,and
they would not permit it. Judge
Mann was in the hands of his friends.
If there had been any possibility of the
Judge skinning Harry alive, we are
not altogether prepared to believe the
friends would have figured so largely.
But let us pass the Christiansburg in
cident for a moment at least. Lets
look at the Bath county meeting. We
hear that Judge Mann is trying to cre
ate the impression that Harry entirely
crawfished at that meeling, and would
not have any joint debate there. The
Judge certainly must be misquoted. In
the first place Mr. Tucker could not re
fuse a joint debate with Judge Mann
on any forum where they were both
present. Should he do so now after his
repeated challenges, he would be down
and out for the rest of the campaign.
It has been Judge Mann and his friends
only who have decried against joint
discussions, they, and they only, are
those who have seen harm to the party.
Strange they should have looked so
much at party and not at the success
of their candidate. If Judge Mann
were making a door mat of Harry in
the joint debates, is there any individ
ual here or elsewhere who would tell
Judge Mann to let up, if he were a
Mann supporter ? Well hardly.
But Judge Mann in his decimation
of Mr. Tucker in a speech a few days
ago, in which he pointed to the "mis
erable failure" as he termed it, of the
Jamestown Exposition, and laid the
failure at the door step of Mr. Tucker,
went too far. He got outside the bounds
of truth, and having gotten there all he
said was injurious more to himself than
to Mr. Tucker. A wrong premises al
ways must lead to a wrong conclusion,
and a statement not based on fact must
be untruthful all the way through.
The News-Leader says it was about as
proper to charge Mr. Tuckar with the
failure of the Jamestown Exposition
as to charge Judge Mann with stealing
the poll books when the Judge was
elected to the senate some years ago.
The comparison is very apt. The charge
by Judge Mann, so unreasonable, and
so misleading, and so removed from
the facts, has wonderfully strengthen
ed Mr. Tucker in the country around
Norfolk, indeed the statement has lost
him no friends anywhere, and a few
more statements of similar import and
to the same effect, and the Organiza
tion had better prepare an address
for the Judge, one entirely canonical
and orthodox, and see that he sticks
strictly to the manuscript, otherwise
there is going to be trouble in the old
land yet.

Eighteen Democrats have voted with
the Republicans on most all of the
important tariff measures. This about
wipes out all differences between the
parties, and writes the Democrats of
the past including Grover Cleveland
down as the most driveling idiots that
ever were allowed to go at large.
The tariff legislation in Congress
drags on with every test vote in favor
of Mr. Aldrich who is championing the
trusts and combines. There is the
unqualified statement it is true that
Mr. Aldrich is simply a Senator who is
endowed with principles, which com
pel him to the theory of protective tar
iff upon every article, large or small,
visible or invisible, tangible or intang
ible, existing or to be created, honest
or dishonest, law abiding or criminal.
That he is one of the few men in the
country who possesses that power of
divination which enables him to see
the destruction that would come to
every industry in this country were it
not supported and guarded by a pro
tective tariff, and being that peculiar
sert of person—half man, half angel—
he is placed by a constituency a little
lower than the angels of course, in the
United States Senate, where he can and
does guard precious interests which
but for him would be swept from
earth. It is needless to recall that not
one substance from "quebracho" down
or up, as the case may be, but would
perish from earth, were it not for this
guardian angel and a "staff" of lesser
guardian angels, which this —we may
term—mighty arch angel, is able to
cajole, coerce, or otherwise keep about
him during this onset now being made
by the enemies of the Lord's anointed.
All this greatness and wisdom in Mr.
Aldrich are commendable. It has not
pleased the creator to thus endow all
men. Many got one talent only, whilst
others were entrusted with ten. Some
got none at all. But nature in making
men has never yet failed to implant in
them a certain amount, and we believe
an almost equal amount ot human na
ture This is the only element or qual
ity that seems to have been distributed
with almost absolute equality, Mr.
Aldrich has his share In having it he
cannot divorce the opinion existing in
the average human mind, that other
things beside statesmanship figure in
his tariff fight. A paid attorney could
not fight more zealously than Mr. Aid
rich for the Sugar Trust, to say nothing
of the others. A hired man never la
bored over work so perspiringly. No c
assassin employed to remove a disa
greeable person ever went more stealth- I
ily about his undertaking, and if re- c
ports be true he has actually entered l
into a secret combine with certain hire
lings of the Senate to cut off debate I
and place upon the Senate the cloture
rule which has been, and is now con- j
sidered so odious by those composing j
that body that they have never allowed J
it to obtain there for a moment. This
bit of intrigue on the part of Mr. Aid- j
rich, which Sunny Jim Sherman lifted i
in part from his—Aldrieh's—shoulders >
the other day by assuming responsibil- j
ity for the reading clerk's swift calling
of the roll and Mr. Aldrieh's swifter I
answer to his name—has by no means 1
elevated the champion of trusts in pub- j
lie opinion, or in the opinion of his |
associates. 1
Having in him that human nature j
planted iv every breast the public is ,
beginning to believe that public good .
has little to do with Mr. Aldrieh's con- i
duct in the tariff issue. They rather J
believe it is private gain. Just how
Mr. Aldrich will be or is now reward- J
ed for his ferocious fight for trusts i
over the people,is hidden from the pub- '
lie, but that all the zeal he has shown (
all the work to save his favorites, is for
the country's good, will never be be- i
lieved. The public will not change its I
opinion, nor believe differently though j
Mr. Aldrich should hold up his hands |
and call on God to witness that he has i
no motive that is not as pure as the '
beautiful snow, and no interest save '.
that of doing the most good to the ,
most people. Indeed they would hard- I
ly believe though one rose from the
dead. He is regarded as the paid agent, ,
the hired man, the handy man, and if
needs be the flunkey of corporations,
who goes about at their bidding, per
forms their dirty work, and receives
their encomiums of well done thou
good and faithful servant. What other
thing he receives is between them and

The county court of this county has
within a few years past built an im
posing, and suitable court house. It
■ was long needed and when it came it
met the demands of the large and pros
i perous community which caused its
construction. But whilst the building
i in its dimensions and arrangements is
s of high order, the court has gone fur
- ther than to leave it the mere work
; shop of the courts. It has a pleasing
; exterior, but the court has be
, gun in a way to add to the
3 pleasure of its interior. In doing this
2 it has requested the portaits of distin
i guished judges who presided from time
- to time over the courts of this county,
, as well as of the distinguished members
t of the bar. These have been coming
. and are being placed in position as the
s friends can have them prepared, and
c very recently acquisitions have been
i made which will further aid not only
j in tending to bind the past to the ever
s present, but which will remind the
i. existing generation that they are not
c the Alpha and Omega of the human
1 race; that before they were, there were
i men, and that no great race has or will
. ever be born without an ancestry of
1 which it is worthy,
t Recently a splendid portrait of the
r Hon. A. H. H. Stuart was added to the
1 existing collection. Those who knew
. Mr. Stuart cannot but feel that he
5 should speak from the canvas, so life-
I like does he appear. The same may be
5 said of Judge Wm. McLaughlin, whose
j portrait was earlier placed there, as
1 well as others.
Last week another portrait was hung
among those already in place. This was
1 that of Capt. Robert L. Parrish. Capt.
; Parrish was a resident of Covington,
' but his large practice brought him so
; often here that he seemed a part of our
" awn bar, and his portrait among those
1 who are there hangs in fitting position
" not only because of its appropriateness
by reason of his long practice at this
bar, but because by his varied and
i splendid accomplishments,his learning
as a lawyer, his zeal as an advocate,his
[ wisdom as a councellor, his courtliness
as a gentleman, his loyalty as a friend,
' and his sturdy and incorruptible man
hood. These placed him in such com
' pany when living. It well befits him to
continue in it when dead. The portrait
is very life-like, and those who knew
him irresistably find themselves mov
ed almost to addressing him. The por
trait was the gift to the county of Mr.
Robert L. Parrish, his son, who has
taken his father's place at the bar. The
work is that of our Staunton artist,
Mr. H. L. Wegner. Others are in
course of preparation and will be add
ed to the collection, notably those of
Judges Fultz and Sheffey.
Mr. Aldrich is being severely criticiz
' ed for suppressing a report from Ger
many which showed that German la
borers in many avocations are paid
better wages than in the same lines in
. America. This was not to Mr. Ald
rieh's liking, so he pigeon holed it.
After being smoked out he called the
i report "impertinent," but it wasshown
that during the consideration of the
Dingley bill many such reports were
i used. Then when there was no further
i corner for Mr. Aldrich to hide in, he
i agreed to have the report translated as
it is in the German language. Any one
as familiar with the "Dutch stand
i ard" as he, ought not to need an inter-
I preter, as he can make it plain.
s Since logs can come in free under the
: Dingley bill and under the Aldrich bill
we fail to see where the man who owns
: the trees gets any benefit under the
lumber tariff.
1 Rev. Dr. Cannon speaking of the re
sult in Petersburg of the local option
! fight says, "If at first you don't suc
i eeed, try, try again."
The prohibition campaign in Peters- {
burg did not seem to have been con- ,
ducted with the wisdom anticipated
by those who pay the bills, since the °
city went "wet" by some 600. Mrs.
Curtis seems to have lost her persuasive
powers, and other importations were j
equally as void of results. The Wash
ington Post commenting editorially on :
the campaign and its results says in ,
"That victory might be doubly as
sured, the womenfolk of the drys hand
ed around lemonade and cake at the
polls, while little children sang "Fath
er, Dear Father," and the local W. C.
T. IT. wrestled with- the subject in
prayer. It was In these well-meant ef
forts that, in our opinion, the drys
made their mistake. There are some
ministrations of goodness which, alas!
drive men to drink, when their intend
ed effect is exactly the opposite.
Matters moved with that grace and
fevered ease common to politely con
tested elections until Wesley Andrews,
member of the common council and
spear-bearer for the wets, encountered
the Rev. Sidney Peters, spellbinder for
the drys, at the polls and challenged
the Rev. Sid's vote. Hereupon ensued
hot words, and no cooling liquids were
at hand to quench them. The Rev. Sid
passed a lie, whether in terms or by
implication is not revealed; bat Wes
slapped his face, and wet and dry joined
issues and went to the mat together.
In spite of the high state of public <
spirit, both gentlemen were obliged to
appear in a vulgar police court the next
morning and apologi/.e for having dis
turbed the peace and dignity of Peters
We grieve to stale that notwithstand
ing the heroic endeavors of their cam
paign and the marking of their cham
pion's features with the brand of the
hated enemy, the drys were swept from
the field. It would be presumptuous
to undertake an explanation of this de
feat, but there lurks a suspicion in the
mind that possibly the cake and lemon
ade had something to do with it. At
any rate, the result enforces the sad les
son that the good does not always tri
umph, even when attended by the
charms of song and the lure of tooth
some dainties. It may even he that
the drys borrowed their idea from cer
tain of those establishments fostered by
their rivals which encourage trade by
the use of a quartet of darkies with
banjoes and a free lunch. In which
case they have at least learned that not
every rule works equally well both
ways and that it is the little differences
which decide an issue."

[From Our Regular Correspondent.]
Washington, D. C, May .il.—The
Senate by a vote of fifty to thirty-two
has postponed further consideration of
the Bailey income tax amendment un
til June 10, while Senator Aldrich has
given notice that if time is not then op
portune he will move a further post
ponement. Opinion is divided as to
the wisdom of Mr. Bailey's course in
pressing his amendment at this time.
The Republican advocatesof an income
tax headed by Senator Cummins, of
lowa, are unequivocally oppose to forc
ing a test vote at this time, being con
vinced that to do so would brin'* out a
showing against the income tax pro
position wholly disproportionate to the
opposition to that tax per se. They
realized the force of the argument put
forth by Mr. Aldrich and his associates,
that it was distinctly irregular to inter
rupt the consideration of the tariff
' schedules to vote on an excise tax. Mr.
Bailey on the other hand maintained
that if a vote on his amendment were
postponed until all the schedules has
been adjusted the rates of duty would
have been placed so high that the reve
nue to be produced by an income tax
would seem superfluous, and that,
therefore, its rejection would be insured
by postponement. The result of the
vote demonstrated the correctness of
Mr. Cummins' contention. By forcing
a vote on the question at so inopportune
a time Mr. Bailey alienated practically
all his Republican support. It is a
reasonable assumption that when the
final vote is taken a portion of this will
come back to him, but the moral effect
of the rejection of his motion for imme
diate consideration by so overwhelming
a vote as fifty to thirty-two cannot, it
is feared, be entirely overcome.
No unprejudiced discussion of Mr.
Bailey's course can entirely ignore the
strong conviction in certain quarters
that the Texas Senator was not wholly
sincere in his support of his own
amendment. This view is strongly en
tertained by Senator Cummins and
other equally staunch supporters of an
income tax. Mr. Bailey, of course,
denounces the suggestion with his usual
vehemence. The declaration that Mr.
Bailey was insincere, supported by re
ferences to other instances where he
has apparently played into the hands
of Mr. Aldrich and the Republican or
ganization, which appeared in a Demo
cratic metropolitan daily, led Mr.
Bailey into a fistic encounter with a
representative of that newspaper. The
affair was stopped before it become
seiious except in its effect upon the
standing of the Texas statesman, whose
prestige in the Senate has been so seri
ously injured by such demonstrations
of his inability to control his temper.
It was Mr. Bailey's attack upon Sena
tor Beveridge, whom he attempted to
choke as Mr. Beveridge sat in his chair
on the floor of the Senate just seven
years ago, it will be recalled, which led
to the rejection of Senator Bailey as
Democratic leader and procured that
honor for his colleague Mr. Culberson.
The summary justice meted out by
the President to S. N. D. North, for
the last six years director of the census,
has served vividly lo recall to Republi
can politicians that William Howard
Taft, despite the fact that he has be
come the leader of the Republican par
ty, is still the judge rather than the
politician and that when evidence is
presented to him which demands a
conviction, he does not stop to take in
to consideration the political influence
or affiliation of the accuses, nor even
the effect of the conviction upon the
political wellfare of the Republican
party. When the most influential po
liticians at the capitol learned that the
administration of Dr. North was under
investigation they flocked to the While
House in droves to assure the President
that "it would never do to displace
North." The President listened with
infinite patience to their admonitions
and, like Brer Rabbit, "kep' sayin'
notbin'.'' When the investigation was
concluded Mr. Taft sent for Dr. North
and advised him that the most grace
ful method of separating himself from
the public service would be to file his
resignation immediately. Dr. North
did so and a statement was given out
at the White House saying that Dr.
North's resignation "was based on the .
ground that, on account of conditions
existing and likely to continue, his ad
ministration of the office would not
probably be successful." Such lead
ing politicians as Senators Aldrich,
Lodge, Crane and Root, Speaker Can
non and others, gasped for breath.
They are still gasping, but the name of :
E. Dana Durand, a man of marked ad- :
ministrative ability and no political in
fluence, has been sent to the Senate as
Dr. North's successor.
The election of Representative Wil
liam Lorimer as United States Senator
from Illinois, vice Albert J. Hopkins, ,
is regarded by politicians in Washing
ton as a distinct defeat of all that is
wholesome in national politics. Mr.
Hopkins was not of the material of
which statesman can be made, Mr.
Lorimer is one of the old-school politi
cians, a ward boss of a ino«t objection
able type, a man of rather clean per
sonal character, but a devotee of the
philosophy that in politics the end jus
tifies the means, that all is fair in the
political game and that Republican su
premacy is so essential to the welfare
of the country that any amount of po
litical corruptien, necessary to main
lain it, is not only justifiable but pa
