CHO TALKS OF WErXS_SENSATIUN SOF THE CAPITAL Special Correspondence to Dis patch-News Tells Many Things of Interest to Virginia People Richmond, Va., June 17. —Metho- dist ministers of the city and State entered a strong protest against the action of President R. E. Black well, of Randolph-Macon College, in inviting Major J. C. Hemphill, editor-in-chief of the Times-Dispatch to deliver the annual address be fore the graduating class at that in stitution. The invitation was extend ed more than a monfli ago, and Major Hemphill accepted the com pliment. No sooner had the formal invitations to the commenement been placed in the mails, however, than a protest long and loud began to come back to Dr. Blackwell, and he was taken to task for his act. It seems that some months ago the Times-Dis patch carried an editorial article which did not mince words in an arraignment of the Rev. Dr. James Cannon, one of the ministers of the Methodist church, and who has been somewhat in the public eye as a re sult of his denunciation of newspaper and every newspapei who did not agree with him views on all questions. i The protests became pretty bold and some of the ministers sent cards to the organ of the church and voic ed their views in plain language. The attention of Major Hemphill was called to the matter, and he at once sent a note to Dr. Blackwell inform ing him that he could not attend the commencement. Cne minister, in voicing his protest, declared that if Major Hemphill were allowed to speak in the college he would refuse to do the bidding of the conference in lvgard to soliciting support for "IS YOUR BABY RESTLESS?"

There has been a double construe lof the statutes by different jud -and while three judges in one on of the State have held then lid, three others have held them valid, and the validity has been af firmed by the supreme court. The demand throughout the State is that the laws shall be plain and unmis takable and. *'\at violations shall be on Registration. ago Judge Frank P. of Lynchburg, in passing the validity of a prohibition elec tion in Lynchburg, held that he had no power to review the work of the registration officers, they having du ties to perform which made them the «ole judges of their acts. It was held that many voters had got ten on the books who had not made their applications in their own hand writing, a protest being made against the result of the election there on that score, when it was shown that many voters had been put on the books and changed the city from dry to wet.
