FROM MR. ACKER.
THE REGENT REPUBLI
CAN CONVENTION.
He Charge* the Lewis faction With In?
stigating ?ami Plowing the
Assault.
To My Fellow-Citizens of Rockingham I
County and the Blate o? Virginia:
Inasmuch as there was a convention
held at Harrison burg, Va? on the 17th
day o? March. 1900, of the. Republicans of !
Rockingham County, for the purpose of ?
?electing delegates to the Republican State '
Convention, which meets in the City ol
JCorfolk on the 10th day of April, 1800,
and electing delegates to th? Congres?
sional Convention, which meets at lfr'oiit"
Royal on the 3d day of April. 1900; and
inasmuch as seid convention at Harrison
burg resulted in riotous and unlawful
conduct on the part of certain members
of? said convention and their adherents,
and various misleading statements have
been circulated as to-what transpired on
that occasion, I deem it proper in vlndi- t
cation of myself and the gentlemen'who ?
are in sympathy with me, to make'tthe j
following statement: j
The convention was called to order by '
Mr. Chas. .M. Keezel, the County Chair- ?
man. He selected as tellers the ?Rev. A. |
P. Funkhouser and Mr. M. B. Lewis. Un- j
der the rules as announced by the State ?
Committee, Mr. Keezel; the County Chair?
man, called th? convention to order, and
after reading the roil of delegates as cer- j
tilled to him from the various precincts,
announced that nominations were In ordej ;
ior the election of a temporary chairman
of the convention. Dr. J. B. Webb was
pieced in nomination by what !s known
as the "Lewis faction." I was placed in
nomination by Mr. J. W. Deputy, of
Bridgewater. Thereupon Mr. J-.'sc-zel, the
County Chairman, proceeded to call the
roll of delegateti as certified to Mm from
the various precincts of '.le cojnly, and
upon the completion of the roll-call, ?nd
b?fore Chairman Keezel, io whom it was
the duty of the tellers to report their
count, and before Mr. Funkhouser. one of
the tellers, could report his count to the
chairman, Mr. M. B. Lewis, the other
teller, a son cf Mr. D. S. Lewis, the lean?
er of the "Lewis faction." without deign?
ing to report to the chairman the count,
arose from his seat, end with his hands
over his h?ad and at the top of his voice,
approached the front of the stage and an?
nounced: "Webb 35, Acker 30. We have
got them"; which was not . true, and
which statement was immediately contra?
dicted by the chairman, who announced
that Hon. John Acker was elected chair?
man of the convention. The \-ote was
49 for Acker and 36 for Webb, as shown
by the official report'of the convention.
Immediately, upon the announcement so
made by Chairman Keezel, that I was
elccied temporary chairman of the, con?
vention. I prociT-eded lo the platform to
take the. chair, but before 1 could address
any remarks to the convention I was vio?
lently and feloniously assaulted. be:ns
knocked down not only by the fists of
tho opposing faction, but also by clubs
and other dangerous weapons, and l'or a
while rendered unconscious. After being
taken from the stage and administered
to by a physician, 1 was at length ena?
bled to preside over the convention,
though still bleeding.
The Lewis faction having in the mean?
while, before 1 was able to t.'tke the chair
?by reason of the injuries inflicted upon
me, taking the advantage, of my being
thus incapacitated, had proceeded to in?
stall Dr. Webb as their chairman, and
appointed their committee on credentials,
when I. though still bleeding from t!:e
wounds I.had received, assumed the chair
upon the same platform, and proceeded
with the convention as prescribed in the
oflicial report hereinbefore referred to,
whilst the chairman of the Lewis faction
and his adherents were going through the
form of holding a convention on another
portion of the stage. The convention, as
presided over by me, an<3 as certified as
above stated under the organization of
the party, as announced by the State
Committee, could only be considered to
be the regular and lawful convention of
the party in the County of Rockingham
for the purposes for which it was assem?
bled. The action of Mr. M. B. Lewis,
one of the tellers appointed by the chair,
in recording the vote otherwise than as
announced by the chairman, and the ac?
tion of the -Lewis faction in not waiting
for the announcement of the County
Chairman, as to result of the vote upon
the roll-call under the certified list of dele
* gates, or waiting until all of the precincts
of the county had been certified to the
chairman and been \-oted upon, and the
action of their adherents in rushing upon
the stage and attacking, and for a time
incapacitating mo from acting as chair?
man of the meeting, showed a predeter?
mined purpose not <o abide by the re?
turns from the precincts, but to control
the meeting without regard to conse
Qiiences. or. as expressed by one ??G their
active adherents on that occasion, "that
they intended to control that meeting if
they liad to wade through blood to do
so."
My injuries received on that occasion
have been such as to prevent me, until
to-day, from giving any statement to the
public as to the occurrences on the fiaid
17th day of March, 190G. and the Hepubii
can Convention held in Harrisonburg. I
deeply regret that any Republican Con?
vention should have been characterized
by such lawlessness, and that any gentle?
men claiming to be members of the party
to which 1 belong should be so far obli?
vious to their obligations as citizens of
the State of. Virginia and the. United
States as to be guilty of conduct, which
I have this day felt it my duty as a citl
Z' to swear out warrants agallisi them
fo. elonious assaults; yet, still as a
matter of duty to myself and as a citi?
zen, 1 nave thought it proper^to place
my vindication and the vindication of
the public peace, as well, in the hands of ;
the proper officers, and leave It to them
to determine whether I and my followers !
who were in that convention assembled, I
ajid at all times during th? proceedings
of the convention were ever actuated by
any other purpose than to give expression
to the opinion of the Republican voters
of ?Rockingham County, as certified
through the proper officials. I never
dreamed of attacking any person or per?
son's whatever, or of being attacked, but
the conduct of my adversaries, as exem?
plified by the fact that none of them'
wore injured, but that only I and my
friends were injured, and that there is
no charge against either me or my friends
for any violation of the law, and that
my adversaries immediately after the
vote "by the said M. B. Lewis, jumped
upon Ihe stage from every accessible
point with clubs end ' sticks in their
hands, is, I think, conclusive evidence of
the fact that they were the aggressors,
and that they were the disturbers of the
peace, and that they were an organized
body, by a preconcerted arrangement, to
set aside Ihe will of the people as ex?
pressed through the returns to the County
Chairman, and to accomplish that result
both by the purloining of papers'evidenc
lng the will of the people, and to inflict
personal .injuries both upon me and upon
my friends, so.es to prevent the will of
the people thus expressed being carried
Into effect
Conscious of the fact that I never medi?
tated or conceived of ah. attack upon any
one, and that I was violently, and I may
say. murderously assaulted upon that oc?
casion. I will leave this question to the ,
courts on the one hand, and on the other
to the Republicans of the ?Seventh Con?
cessional (District, and of the State of j
Virginia, at their conventions soon to be
held, to decide. .Very Respectfully.

WAS THE CAUSE
There Was No Deception for Fraudu?
lent Purposes.
FRANK COLUMBINI WAS BAILED.
He Was Charged With Obtaining
Money From Mr. Pat McDonough
on Falso Pretences?Other
Cases in Court.
T?tere was only one ease of inter?
est before the Great Dispenser yesterday,
that of Mr. Pat McDonougb against
Frank j. Columbini, who was charged
by Mr. ? McDonough with procuring the
sum of Si,-j(X) from him on false pre?
tences.
The cause was ' that of the sale of a
piece of property by Mr. Columbini to
Mr. McDonough, on the representation
that the property was not encumbered so
far as a wife" was concerned. It turn?
ed out later that there was a wife in
tho case, and that she held the natural
lien of a wife on the property, amount?
ing to something like {"300.
WANTED IT QUASHED.
Mr. McDonough was anxious to let the
whole matter drop, for. he said, he didj
not believe that Mr. Columbini intended
to deceive him for the purpose of fraud,
but that the deception was practiced to
conceal certain family troubles.
Mr. H. M. Smith represented the de?
fence, and upon his motion Mr. Colum?
bini was admitted te bail in the sum of
?500, and the case continued until April
19th:
Mr. Columbini is a resident of New
York, but is a native of Richmond. He
is a sou of the late D. Columbini, who
was at'one time in business in this city.

Hoy Hock, a! fourtecn'year-old boy, the
son ?G?G?.. D. W. Hock, who has very re?
cently moved outside the city limits, was
put to a very severe test of Ms personal
courage a' few days ago and was not
found wanting.;
"Mr. Hock during the early part of the
we?ek moved to the corner of Thirty-third
?nd O Streets, and opened a grocery
stc-re and bar-room.

MR-^LILYSON'S DEFEAT.
The Reason Why He "Was Not Re
elected to the School Board.
There was'much talk lit political circles
yesterday over th? def?s?t:?f Hon. J.- Tay?
lor Bllyson for membership in t'he City
School Board.
Major Sol. Cutchins, who was chosen
to succeed "him, was very much surprised
when he was elected to succeed Mr. Klly
son.. Said he:
"Not a single person had mentioned the
matter to me. The. thing seems to have
been done upon the spur of the moment.
When I was placed in nomination I
protested, but the question was put and
I was chosen."
"Will you serve as a member?" the Ma?
jor was asked.
"That I cannot say now. I will confer
with some friends and be guided by their
advice. I shall reach a decision before
next Tuesday."
It is stated in Council circles that the
defeat of Mr. Ellyson was due solely to
the fact that he was one ot the corpora?
tors In tho bill incorporating the Vir?
ginia Telephone and Telegraph Company,
which was defeated by the General As?
sembly at the last session. The City
Council protested against the passage of
the act.
Efforts were made to induce Mr. Jas.
D. Crump to run, but he declined. The
opponents of Mr. Ellyson had no one
especially in mind when the Council
met. After a conference among a few
it was decided to sprins Major Cutchins'
name.
The Major not only voted for Mr. El?
lyson, but it is known that he was very
anxious that that gentleman should be
re-elected.
Mr. Ellyson has been president of the
School Board for many years and has
made a most efficient officer. - He has
always taken a lively interest in school
matters.

Firemen Deny the Charges.
In regard to the letter signed Fred.
H. ?iegley, which has been published,
alleging that some of (the firemen are
taking an active part in politics. Chief
Piiller said last night that he knew of
no such action on the part of the men
as charged in the letter. One of the
department regulations specifically for?
bids the firemen from active participa?
tion in politics. So far as he knew, the
charge was without foundation. Tha
Chief stated .that he would refer the let-?
ter to tlie Board of Fire Ccmmisioncrs.
The board meets in regular session next
Monday night.
Assistant |Chief Shaw denied that he
had asked any individual to vote against
any candidate for the Council, as charged
in the letter. The men of the engine
house and the truck company located In
Jefferson Ward likewise denied the
charges made.
The woman who
?puts her head in
the lion's mouth,
seems the type of
reckless women.
But she
isn't. The
really reckless woman is the one who
braves Nature day after ?day, by neglect
of the health ?of the delicate womanly
organs. "Crime and punishment bios- \
som on one stem " says Emerson. When
the cycle of self-neglect .is complete it
includes the pains and sufferingsiwhich
are the inevitable penalties inflicted by
outrage Nature. The drain winch to?
day is counted an inconvenience, be?
comes in succeeding days a horrible and
offensive stigma. The passing depression
of an hour grows into a permanent mel?
ancholy. ...,.-..
The timely use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription will save young women from
suffering, as it. will cure those who
through neglect have become martyrs
after marriage. No woman who suffers
with backache, pain in the side, bearing
down pains, debilitating drains, ulc?ra?
tion or inflammation, should delay an?
other day the use of "Favorite Prescrip-;
tion." Its use helps every woman and
heals ninety-eight per cent, of all who
gi\*e it a fair trial. It contains no opium,
cocaine or other narcotic, u ;?
"l was tempted to try your m?dianes after
seeing the effect upon my mother;" writes Mrs.

"My nerves have been so distracted and broken clown by over?
work that I have had but little rest, pleasure or comfort. I have
been obliged to entirely suspend my ministerial labors for nearly
a year. Some said try Fame's Celery Compound. I did so, and lam
glad to say I am now almost well and have resumed my ministerial
duties. I can eat almost any kind of food and digest it without any
trouble, and I do not have that harassing pain in my head."
