Most of the members of the Bluen

have been riot und bloodshed. They

Hon. M, T. Cooke, of Norfolk, was
here to day. When asked if he would
be a candidate for re-election to the
House, he said that was a matter ho
bud not considered at all, aud he had
no idea bh to what ho would do. A
number of Mr. Cooku's former asso?
ciates are exceedingly anxious for him
to come back. They are talking about
Ilim for chairman of the Finance Gom
mittee, as it is understood Mr. Moore,
of Albemarlo, will not come back. Mr.
Cooke is well filtod for this position,
which will bo a most important one
next session, in view of the alleged con?
dition of tho State's ti nances.
