Fourteeti leading republicans of the
Fifth distriet of Virginia, as stated on
Saturday, sigtied the call for a conven?
tion to be held at Martinsvillc Septein

The Fifth distriet is represented by
Judge E. W. Baundera, democrat,
aboae aeal was contested by Parsons,
republiean. Just before the close of the
session of Cbngreaa] the committee on
clections reported in favot of the con
teatanta oo the groutids that tbe re
moval of Fioyd county. strongly re?
publiean, from the Fifth listrict to the
Sixth distriet by the Virginia Irgisla
tuie was a gerrymander and uncon
atitutional. Ihe reporl has not been
acted upon by the Houae, and. meatr
wbilc Judge Saunders has been serving
as a member Ol the committee investi
gating the bribery charges made by
Senator tiore sitting in Oklahoma.
lt baa been binted that Speaker Can?
non sent Banndera to Oklahoma in or?
der to obatrnd bitn in hia eanvaaa. His
Opponent, Varsons, is the republiean
The Floyd republicans bave repudi
ated the action of the legislature put
ting them in the Sixth ibstrict and aen!
delegatea to the Fifth distriet conven?
tion and will vote fo Parsons.
The sitnatioii makes the distriet
doM, and the result possibly depeiids
on wbether tbe House would regard
Floyd as in tbe Fifth or Sfxth distriet.
The new inaurgent movement, bow?
ever. protnises to settle the quattion, as
there aeema to be no doubt that it has
i atroaaj following. Ibeprnrality either
way is not expected to be more than
800 orSOO. ln the Sixth and Tenth
diftricta tlie republiean convention
showed strong insurgeut tendencies and
made nominations. In the Seventh
the convention split and tbe insurgents
nominated a candidate against the reg- j
ular. In the other districU the repub?
licans will hsve comparatively no show
iag. This movement aeenis to promise
a solid dclegation from all of the 10
districls in the House.
The rcports from the Ninth distriet,
now repreeented bySemp, republican,
indicate that there ia no longera quea
tion how the distriet will go and that
tbe only matter for considcratioii ia the
sizcof the niajority for Stuail. demo
ciat. Optimists place it at &500, al?
though Blemp'a niajority two years ago
was nearly 4,000.
