ALEXANDMA, VA.
WEDXESI'AY KVKMNt;. POT,
Thb 8election of Mr. F. F. Mar
bury as president of tbe Board of
Aldernien at the adjourned BMetiog
held last night l.rings to a cl..-e a
deadlock which had existed in thal
body since the mcetiu? of the board
on the tirst of Beptember. As the
haugup occnrred during a reeeaa <>f
Council, legislation has heen in DO
wiae impeded. Mr. Marhury is one
of the oldest meml.ers ofthe preaenl
Board of Aldernien, baving succecl. 1
hia fathpr, the late William BL M BJ
bury, at the lattcr's death t. n y.ai
ago. During ni.-st of the time he hafl
beeu an Alderman he baa scved ....
the committee on strcets, and has .1.
VOted much of his time and labor tO
the service of the city at a period when
street improvpnipnt.s, the laying of
sewers, etc., needed the serviccs of
capable and practical men. That he
will take the same, interest in lns new
position goo8 without saying. Ihe
action ofthe membcrs of the board
in comitig together and Bgreeing t>>
elect a president adds to tbe conlidci.ee
which has always heen repoeed iu them
by those they represeiit. and the Com*
mon Council baving l.e.-n previoualy
organized hy the election ol offioera,
both branches will I>p pre|)ared to pro*
ceed to business at Ihe regular meeting
next Tuesday night. It should be
stated in this oonnectioo thal tbe gen
tlemen composing the preaenl Board
of Aldernien have shown themaehrea
to be the right men in the right place,
realizing, as they do, that they have
been selected to labor pro lx.no pub
lico. They, have eventually acted on
thescripturalsuggestion, "iu bonor pre*
ferring one another," and will now vic
in the performance of their publie duty.
This spirit was especially marked in
the case of Alderman J. M. 11.11. He
and Alderman \V. W. BaUenger were
the first candidates for the proeidency
on the tirst ultimo. At the conf.
last night. Mr. Hill was aaked I.y
Mr. Field i?' he desired tO COntintM a
de facto president of the board an.l
allow tbe deadlock to continuc the
former being assured that his right to
do so would not be queotioned by the
meuibers who bad aupported Mr. I'i.ld.
Mr. Hill said that inasmuch as he
had withdrawn as a candidate in
favor of Mr. Marhury. he preforred
the latter be elected.
Nkwm from I'ortugal is of an alarm*
ing nature. About two years ago the
kiug and orown prince of thal country
were murdered by anarchists, and tbe
present king is now a prisoner. while
thearmy and navy are with tl.e revolu
tionists who are terrifying the COUntry.
Warships, at last reports, were said t?>

dispatches say the rcvolutioti is aweep

yesterday overthrew the governmenl

capital. King Manuel is reported lo
havo taken tefuge on a lha/ilian war
ship. The army and navy bave joined
the revolutiouists, and efforts an being
made to exteud the revolutioii to Spain.
The revolt is the direct outcome of ll.
clash between the cl.ricals and anti

Badajoz, Spain, Oet. 5.?King Man?
uel owes his reported escape from the
palace to the Brazilian warship Sao
Faulo to tbe valor and loyalty of his
l,..ly guard, accxirding U> the -tai.
menta today of the lat.-t rofugeea to
arrive here.
In the fa.e of the re\olt in th.
army, the refugees declare that Man*
ual'a l>ody guard remained stadfa-t
and by barring themselvps in Ihe
palace preveuted its peaceable capture.
While Manuel was hidden in an
inner compartment, the body guard,
assisted by many of the palac- at*
taches, fought off a vastly superior
number of revolutionists.
As a last resort the revolutionists ap
pealed to the navy, which foUowed
the lead of the army in mutinying,
and warships iu the harbor began a
bopibardnient of the palace. The
ibota from the warships went true. and
it was not loug before the masonry of
thp palace began to orumble.
Seeing the capture of the palacp in
evitable, part of the royal guard s...
rounded the king aud while the Other
kept up thi- tight at th. front, the .
eape of Manuel by a se.ret pxit in the
rear was eflected.
Refugpes arriving here today fro.
Lisbon say that the revolutionists ar
in complete eontrol of the city and that
aprovisional government, pattcrned af*
ter the government of Braz.l, has been
established. There is an uueonfirmed
report that Dr. Maehado, tlie reeoguized
leader of the Portuguese repiihlicans,
has been proclain.ed president.
The royal standard was haulci down
from the palace shortly after the tiring
begrn, and the red and blue Hag of the
repiihlicans hoisted in its place. T>
day'sdispatcesfrom Lisbon say that tl.e
royal standard was removed from all
publie buildings and there are few signs
of the monarchy now remaining. The
extent of the lighting that prcced.-d th.
capture of Lisbon is still unknown,
butas the army and navy are rebahly re?
ported as baving joined the revolutioii
isU, it is not believed that the h.yalist
were able to hold out long. There wai
heavy tiring for several hours yesterday
afternoon, followed by an appar.iit
ecssation of hostilities, that probably
marked the capture oJ the palace and
the practical overthrow of the
monarchy.
Tbe dead and injured m the hn.r
struggle iu tbe capital will reach a

A civil war in Spain before the vie

The vatican at once wired the nuncio
at Madrid to usp all possihle means to
get intocommunication with the DUDCio
at Lisbon, urging the latter to warn
every priest in Portugal that they must
under no circiimstances BQpporl the
republicans. The niessage adds that in
the event of King Manuel's death, the
popo would hold the clergy indirectly
and partly responsible fortheassassina

those who support the elergyand pope,
have been bitter opponeuta of the king

London Oet., 5?According to the
Central >*ews, there has been contin
uous fighting in Lisbon since the initial
shot in the revolution was fired, and
bloody conllicta are now raging through
out the capital.
Hundreds have falleu in the struggl
for liberty. Although the latest d.s
patches from the elearance- pointa of
the fragmentary news that iilters from
the capital say that the revolution.-t
are in eontrol, the fact that the fighting
continues, indicates thata large part of
tbe population and possible soldury
has remained Ipygl w.the government,
Moba of revolutionists have Bttaehed
tbe homes of the governnu-nt leaders
and well known royalists. many of
whom are reported slain. The ?way of
the mobs was unchecked.as those of the
poliee who did not open ly revolt al the
outaet, were afraid to offer rcsistance
to the maddened thousands that swept
through the streeta.
In tbe royalist quarter of the city,
barrieades were hastily ere.-ted, and an
attempt made to atand ?>ff the revolu?
tionists. All through Ihe night there
?, re sii. - ? ssions of attack s on these
harricades, most of which were eventu
ally swept away.
Wben the full freiisy of tba raobs
was spent, the royalists and elerieals,
against whom the wrath of the republi
Waa particularly keen, began a
burried exodus from the city, lea\ ing
their property to be looted and tlieir
houses to fail before incendiary torcl.es.
The fighting was unusually severe

Thp cliinax to the bloody apectBfle
came when the warships began firfog
on the palace. These shots were greet.-d
by frenzi.d shouta of the people, and
eri.s of "death to the king" rent the
air. A n attempt was made to prevent
tneeecape of Manuel by throwing a
heavy detaebment along tlie water
front, the mob divining that fai would
bc.k to escape in this way.

The latest re|x.rt here is that tl.e

as in Lisbon.
l'ractically all of the Portuguese

Mr. Field referred to the futile at
teui|its heretofore made to elect B
president, rcsulfing in a deadlock
Whicb had existed overa month. Dur?
ing this time every member of the
board excepi Mr. Ogden had been
Dominated and defeated. The roembera
represented by Mr. Field had, he
thmight, resorted to every nicans to
aettle tln- matter in order that the
buarneaa of the oommunity might not
be retarded. All efforts at oompromiae
had been in vam. The niemhers wh<?

one man from each side be appointed

Field said, for the sake of harniony,

Mr Hill aaid there were twenty
representations 00 coininittees fioin

of membera who had aupported Mr.
Field for the presidency and seven of
membera who had aupported Hr.

tln- siate made out by the membera
who prefered Mr. Field for president.
Mr. Ogden said Mr. Field had
Bodeavored lo make it plain thal the
side he represented had n-liiupiished
all claima for committee appoint
meiits. There was no dictation. and
Mr. Marhury would be allowed to HBB

The State democratic committee, in
D jn Richnioiid last night adopted
a report from the subniittee which in
vestigated the allegpd frauds in the
demOCraik primary election iu the
Beoood (Norfolk) congreaakmal distriet,
tbe gist of which is the following:
"Maving listened patiet.tly to tbeevi
denee produced and thoroughly con
lldared the whole, your committee
recomn.ends that the primary of August
_:*, 1910, held in the Secnd con
gressional distriet for nomination of B
candidate for Congie-s, be declared uull
and void."
The cotimiittee has not yet decided
what it will do with reference to hold?
ing B new election.
The last niove in the investigation of
ohargOB of fraud maile in connectioii
with the conduct of the Second distriet
democratic primary was made in Nor?
folk yesterday by Coniinonwealth's At?
torney John G. Tilton, who asked the
clerk of the Corporation Court to issue
subpoenas for t>18 persons to appear be?
fore the grand jury on October 17.
Those on whom he desires thosubpaenaa
served are persons whose naines are
credited with baving been voted iu th.
Beoood precinct of the Second ward of
Norfolk.
Citizens' counsel in tl.e investigation
before the coinniittee named by tho
democratic state oantral committee in
troduc.Hl much evidence to-abow that
many of the nanies had been fraudulent
ly votod. Tho Conimonwealth's at?
torney says he int.-nds to subpoena be?
fore the grand jury every person in
Norfolk who is recorded as baving
voted.
Judge Bain, of Portsniouth, and
Judge Lawless, of Norfolk county, will
lik.ly instituto court inquiries into the
election as conducted in their juris
dietions. The law on the subject of
fraud coiiimitt.d in connectioii with an
unlegalized primary is as yet somewhat
vague.
In its aeeount of the meeting of the
-lai" .leinocratic coinniittee last night
the Richmond Tin.es Dispalch says:
After listcning for three hours to
passionalp and apparently completely
diaregardad argument from the attor
neys for the s.parate contending politi?
cal elei.ients in the Secnd distriet, the
si;itc democratic coinniittee consunied
fifteen Beoonda last ni_ht in rotfog to
liaWain the report of the investigating
committee, which recon.mended that
the August primary be deelared null
and void. Only one dhwant?g vote
was caat?by Paul Garrctt, of LeeB*
burg.
To the Secnd distriet comnntteo
was given tl.e task of selppting the
metbod of nominating a party candi?
date. It was given powers lo modify
the party law in.ase it decided to hold
a primary, because of the lack of time
to cotnply with the regulation in
dfcta.l.
After tbe a.ljournment of the state
committee meeting, the distriet chair*
man. Colonel 0. Fenton Day, called a
meeting of his coinniittee for 11 o'cloek
Saturday morning, at the Montieello
Hotel, in Norfolk. This was over the
proteW of J. B. West, of Suffolk, who
Wanted the committee to n.eel lasl
nighl for oonaideratioa of the quee
tloll.
Mr. West was open I.y disgust.-d. He
told the newspaper me.i that they
could say positively that this delay in
s. ttlement of the question nieant that
no primary could possibly be called.
"In fact," ba added, "I believe
nothing at all will be d..ne."
h is probabk tnough thal a conven?
tion will be had. Adjutant-General W.
\V. Sale. a member of the Second dis?
triet coinniittee. -aid that he had just
returned from a visit in a distant part
of the state, and was not prej.ared to
vote oo the question without consnlta*
tion with tbe people of the distriet.
Following the meeting of the com?
mittee, Benator K. B. Hol'and, of s..f
folk, announced his .andidacy for Con?
gress from Ihe Second distriet, subject
to tbe action of the democratic conven?
tion. This is taken to uiean that he
will secure the support of the citi/ens'
mov. ineiit in Norfolk. and it is believed
he will al-o oommand large sup|.ort in
ihe counties.
Benator Holland is rzceediogtj pop
ular with his colleagues in the State
Benate, where he did much valuahle
work in commtttee and on the lloor
during the last session.
\s slated above, tl.e argiiinent of the
attorneys presetit was disregardtsl hy
the state committee. Mr. Young'i rap*
resentatives wanted the report of the
investigating con.iniltee overr.iled and
his certilicateof noniinatioi. conliimed
The counsel for Mr. Maynard aaked
thal a n.-w primary he l.pld, in which
only he an.l Mr. Young should take
part, The three attorneys for the I'iti
?ena' Commtttee wanted both Mr.
Voung and Mr. Maynard eliniinated
from the second primary.
Thereiipon the state committee pro
eeeded to turti down all these requests
One hy one. It declared the primary
..f August 23, and consequently Mr.
Young'i eeititieite, null and void. It
said thal tl.e primary or convention to
he held should be "open to all demo?
crata otherwise qualitied." It also by
this action refused to elimii.ate the
iitestant and contest.-e. The distriet
committee completed the job by ar
ranging things so that there can be no
primary at all.
