In the election at Winchester Thursday the Democrats elected their entire muni cipal ticket except one member of the city council. Capt. C. B. Denson will be the orator at the unveiling of the North Carolina monument in Stonewall Cemetery, Win chester, June 6. Upward of fifty writers and artists con tribute to the May Ladies' Home Journal. Consequently variety is combined with excellence throughout its pages Maj. E. H. McDonald and Messrs. W. S. Merchant and Chas. C. Conklyn had Mr. C. p. Reininger make them gray uniforms for the Louisville Reunion. Rain prevented the success of the re union of Confederate soldiers at Shen andoah Junction, and it is proposed later in the summer to have a general reunion of all the old Confederates in this section. We are unable to secure the complete list of members of the Executive Com mittee, Boards of Eduction, Justices and Constables, as chosen at the primary, tor this issue, but will give them in our next. We have, with the compliments of Rev. H. H. Kennedy, a copy of the very interesting minutes of the 116th session of the Baltimore Annual Conference, M. E. Church. South, for which we return thanks. The census enumerators for Jefferson county are: Ellis B. Johnson, William A. Boyd, Harry M.Hopkins, John Grubb, James J. Singleton. Charles E. Widmyer, G. R. Ware, John F. Stanley and J. Frank Turner. Gen. H. Kyd Douglas, of Hagerstown, Md? has been appointed chief of staff to the grand marshal, Gen. John B.

The Martinsburg Democratic primary for the purpose of electing eight members of the new county executive committee j resulted in the election of Alexander Parks, H. T. Cushwa, G. Wellinger. C. W. Boyer, G. W. Schill. Allen Noll. J. H. Weddell and John N. Rentch. The Massachusettes liquor law pro hibits the use of screens or curtains in saloons or bar-rooms and requires a light to be burning during the hours in which the saloon may not be legally kept open. This exposes all the transactions to the public and prevents the sale of liquor during the hours interdicted. The Primary is over, leaving some successes and many disappointments. The battle with the common political foe will soon be on all along the line. Let those who have been so earnest tor the success of their personal favorites within the party lines be equally zealous and active against the opposits political party, and see that no stone is left unturned to accomplish Democratic success in full nexf November. The Lady Managers of the Reading Room desire to acknowledge with thanks a contribution from members of the Charles Town Society of New York City of $25 towards defraying the expenses of the Room. The names of the contribu tors are as follows: Ashby T. Beall, W. D. H. Washington. Char. B. Rouss, An drew Kennedy, Dr. John Logie, Roger Chew, Scott McKnight. The Confederate veterans of New York City held memoral services on Monday afternoon of last week at their plot in the cemetery at Mount Hope on the Hudson. About two hundred veterans with their wives and friends attended. The exerci ses consisted of the singing of a hymn by j M iss BessieClay to the tune of "America," j a prayer by the chaplain, the Rev. George S. Baker, and an address by J, B.Wilkin son. Followingthisthe Rouss monument, erected by Mr. Charles B. Rouss to the Confederate dead buried in Mount Hope, was appropriately decorated with flowers and Mrs. Martha S. Gielow recited the "Confederate Farewell." Admiral Schley, according to an Oma ha dispatch to the New York Journal, is not of the same mind as Admiral Dewey in regard to the ease with which a sailor can fill public positions outside of his profession. In a letter to ex-Senator Manderson, of Nebraska, AdmiralSchley. discussing the rumor that he might be nominated for Vice-President on the Democratic ticket, says: "For men of the army or the navy to aspire to public places, with little acquaintance with pub lic men and still less with public affairs, has always seemed to me absurd. In my case there is no such danger, for I have neither the capacity nor the prominence that would suggest me for anything more ' than ,! am now. and I lose no sleep over such things." A Trip to Richmond. Rippon.-W. Va.. May 16th, 1900. Dear Mr. Haines; I have a desire to make known to you and the many readers of the dear old Spirit op JeefersoN some of the things Mr. C. M. Weist and myself came in con tact with during our hop, skip and jump to Richmond and return. Our route was via the C. & O. from Basic, and I can frankly say no pilgrim ever traveled through a more desolate country than that from Basic to Richmond. When we struck this region my friend Weist was looking but of the car window with an expression that would indicate that he never expected to see his wife and chil dren again. He says " Skimmerhorn let s go back home." Skimmer was blue him self, but thought it would not do for both to despair at once, so continued to gaze on the scrub oaks and pines until we ar rived at Richmond at 8 p. m. On the way up Broad street we passed the Monu mental Church, which now stands upon the spot where the old Monumental Theater was burned before the war, and in which several hundreds of Richmond's best people were burned, A handsome monument now stands in the entrance over their cremal e 1 bones. The day after our arrival was Sunday, and after breakfasting at St. Clair Hotel we started for the reservoir, which is about 400 It. square and in the center a stream of water gushes into the air. It is a beautiful sight. We stop on the spot where Thomas Cluverous threw Miss Lillian Madison into this reservoir and drowned her. Near this spot the fence had been nearly cut away by relic seekers. The writer was watched so closely that he could not get a piece of the fence, but procured a pebble upon which she stood as a moniento of this sad tragedy. Now we go to Mt. Holly Cemetery, which is one of the most beautiful places one will see in a lifetime. As we stand on a beautiful elevation and think of our loved ones at home our consciences are smitten with remorse for not having brought our families along to enjoy the scenery of this lovely spot, of which_ volumes could be interestingly written. Dinner now calls us to our hotel, which is surrounded by a multitude of historic structures. Just across tbe street stands a magnificent Episcopal church at which Jefferson Davis was attending service when lie received news of Lee's retreat, On another side is located the Capitol Square, in the center of which stands a grand monument to the immortal George Washington, around the base ot which stand six or eight of the old political pa triarchs?Franklin, LaFayette, &c. Life size upon the top, towering into the sky, is George Washington upon his horse, in a charge?two feet only resting upon the base. The capitol looks very ancient and is not at all on a parallel with its surroundings. We occupied seats in the upper and lower state houses, but they too did not compare with those at Wash ington. The City Hall is a monument of magnificence and cost two millions. Now we go to the old soldiers home. Here our hearts were made to bleed at the sad pictures presented. 27s of these old veterans, who were called from their homes in early life to defend their coun try ! They were exposed to frost and snow; shot and shell,?then a crushing defeat and at last are lying upon their beds waiting to die. Capt. J. R. Rosser took us through the museum, in which we saw Gen. Jackson's old sorrel horse which lived to see 36 years. He was in a large glass case and looked as natural as life. He had on the original saddle and bridle, as used by Jackson. We also saw the'femur bone of a soldier which was found on the battle-field of Cold Harbor. It liad petrified and in a length of 4. inches there were 3 minnie balls embedded. We saw many other relics of the war, that 'twere well worth a trip to Richmond to see. In this department my friend Weist mentioned the name of Rouss. and Capt. Rosser's eyes sparkled as he said "Do you gentlemen know C. B. Rouss?" We told him that Rouss' name was a mouth-piece in our homes. He said "Rouss is my old comrade, and I'll show you his picture, Hestepped a cross the room and pointed out Mr. Rouss and himself in a fierce fight. Mr. Rouss was on a fine-looking horse and had his pistol leveled on one of his antagonists. It is now 12 o'clock, and as my friend Weist is getting anxious about his dinner, we make our way back to St. Clair Hotel. I have lots more I would like to tell you, but as my letter is growing lengthy I will close for this time. Hoping that I may see you at W. E. Reed & Co.'s big din ner at Berryville on the 25 inst, I am yours, &c., Jim Skimmerhorn. The sale of the Basic City company property took place Saturday. It was first sold in separate lots and brought only between .$13,000 and $14,000. It was then sold as a whole for $27,500, and bought by Messrs. Isaac Witz. Char'es A. Holt, Samuel Forrerand G. G. Gooch. The Brandon hotel is included in the above and ought alone to be worth more than the price paid. [Waynesboro (Va.) Herald. State or Onio, Citt of Toledo, 1 Li'cas Col-ntt. f Frank J.
