THH SPECULATIVE CRAZE.
Russell .Sago thinks thai Wall Siivet
is on the verge of collapse. He de
clares that values have not increased,
ilia! properties now so high can be
produced for one-half of what they are
selling for. and that rlie present condi
tion of the market is unnatural and
liable to lead to great losses. But all
men are not fools, lift says, and so ho
predicts that ihe public will get iis
eyes open very soon and see ihe .'ib
surdity of trying to represent railroads
as worth double what others could be
put down beside them for. "Now is
Ihe time,"" says Mr. Sajre. "to exercise
prudence, reduce prices, take in sail
and keen close to the shore"
Mrs. Sage, who was present while
her husband was talking to a reporter
of the Now York Herald, said: "They
are all drunk with speculation and
don't kirow what they are doing. They
have sent stocks of all sorts up in U-i
ioons and think they will never come
down, bur. they surely will-*'
"That's just it," remarked Mr. Sapre.
approvingly, "li's inflation, nnd H has
continued longer than I thought it
would. It did seem as if there vres in
iAiligence enough among the men hi
Wall Street to see the utter impossi
bility—the folly—the danger — of trying
to do business on a fictitious basis.
Vnlcss mliore is a speedy change, aUu "
the men who are vow adrift come io
their senses and return to sound busi
ness methods, disaster is inevitable.
"I consider it the duty of the press to
tell the truth about the situation, that
honest men may take warning before
it ih. too late.
"The longer this financial condition
continues, 'the greater will be the sac
rifice in the end. for priev* have got to
come down. There can be no other
\vny. They must come down."
Mr. Sage is right only 'in part. There
hae been a vory givat increase in
values, and many good stocks are not
seliing at higher figures ulian they are
actually worth. But in tuher cases
valuw have been iuflauni aud ihe spec
ulative craze hat? tak^n hold of the
people. We do not think that ihe tiling
hae gone far enough as ytH to do any
material harm, because 41ieSe are d;syx
of wonderful prosperity iv the Uiiitod
Slat.es, aud 4 ho earning capacity <tf t\w
raUronds and the industries of tin*
country is grrator than ev<*r before.
Rut. wild sppcuhd-ion, *«eh a* we hat«
caen during the past several weeks,
menus inflation, and inflation means
collapse It would be a great sin for
the general prosperity of Hiis country
to be impaired by a wild speculative
boom, and it is to be hoped that. Amer

A QUESTION AND AN ANSWER.
9 Si!M)<- iiine a^o w<- mentioned tho
fa< i thai a crowd <if while men in
r.-i:irs;)ii. N. .]., ihreatcned to lynch a
hogix) bpcause, while riding on a bicy
cyo. he h;id run into a while boy and
knocked him down. ••Supposv." we
asked, "this negro had committed a
nameless asj-.inlt ou a liule frirl. what
would this New Jersey mob have
done?'
In reply a friemi kindly sends us ihe
following item which he clijuied n
ccntijr from the news columns of the
Philadelphia. Kecord:
SAi.l.u. .\. .1.. .March 27. -At his
lieaiiiu i<i-i!.iy iii .in- onice <»r ,lus.;ce
of tiie penes Wood. George Newsoine
had a uarrow e^cajx: from violence :it
ilie bail. is <!i' jlte t.-iiner of little uiabel
]• iniay find <-i tup assembled crowd.
N» wsomo is tho tall, heavy negro
who was arrested yesterday on ihe
charge of attacking Mabc], th<> four
t<>en-ye;:]-ol<l d.iiiirliter of Charles B.
I'inlny. ;i fariuer near ihis city, an-1
silencing ln-r by Hireats to kill her.
At the hearing Finlay and his wifo
became s:» enraged while tlieir diiugli
ler ■wtis rel.-iting the terrible slory of
'ihe crime that ii was ;ill the officers
could do t<> keep them from attacking
Hie ugly prisoner. Gqprge White, also
a. colored farm hand to whom New
some is said to have told of the crime,
testified to what he knew, and h«
proved an excellent witness for the
Slav*.
On cross-examination Xewsome tried
in implicate WJiite in the trouble, and
ihis so enraged the latter that he seiz
ed the chair in which he -was sitting
and would have brained the defendant,
had it not been for the prompt action
of Detcerlve Carney, who was close at
'.lafid. Justice Wood held Newsome for
court without bail, and White was
helii as a witness. Xewsome is a biir.
muscular negro, six feel and over in
height, of about twenty-three years
old. There was a strong sentiment in
favor of lynching ilie negro here this
morning, and had any one made the
move it would have been accom
plished.
We repeat what we said in the origi
nal article, that the northern people
are fast opening their eyes to the true
status of the negro question in the
.South. The negro question is now
coming home to them and they no
longer view it altogether from afar.
Hence the difference.
Hon. Charles A. Towne intimates
that Aguiualdo's proclamation was
dictated by the American authorities.
Is it possible that Mr. Towne holds
any American responsible for the flam
buoyant language of (ha>t fearfully and
wonderfully made document?
That car of the Presidential train
which was set apart if or the Presi
dent's special use has l>een sidetrack
ed In Chicago for the sufficient reason
that it. bears the name "Imperial" on
the side and that, too, in gold letters.
The President may be an "imperial
ist," but he is not yet ready to wear
the label.
Why should our people be the only
ones to close their eyes to vhat is go
ing on? Why should we move along
in the same old ruts and insist that
political policies and old traditions lon-sr
since dead are vital living issues, and
depend oii them for the salvation of the
South.— fcenaturMcLauriu.
Many other southerners are asking
themselves ihe same question.
CURRENT TOPICS.
The Springfield Republican says:
•'Tin proposal to divide the school fund
of Virginia between the- while and black
rocos, in proportion to tho amount of
taxes paid by them
AS VIEWED respectively, has been
AT Til]-: NORTH, given its death blow
by Senator Daniel.
Writing to a friend lie wisely says that
the plan is 'lacking- in just regard for
the natural relations of the State to its
citizens, it would contain a restriction
upon legislative power unprecedented in
the United States. It would put us out
of sympathy with the great bo>iy of our
fellow-citizens elsewhere, as well as a
lars<" mass of them, both biack and
white, in our own coii.ir.onweaith.' The
Richmond Times supports Senator Daniel,
denouncing .such a step as cruel and cal
culated to -advertise the Virginia whites
as possessed with 'a hatred toward the
lilack race.' The division of school
money in proportion to taxes paid makes
r.o headway, happily, anywhere in the
South."
The Indianapolis Xcws says:
"The Young Women's Christian Asso
ciation of this city, while young- in years,
is rich in usefulness. It has made most
gratifying growth.
A HOME FOR Already it has a
YOI'XG WOMEN, membership of SOU.
To these it offers
meals at bare cost, wholesome, well
cooked food, which women, and women
who work particularly, not merely mcd,
but .must J>e encouraged to eat. The in
stitution offers besides, all i-orts of re
creation and education. There are
classes of various kinds in physical, men
tal and moral culture. There are social
opportunities. All sides of life arc looked
after andj ministered to. l'here is, in
Fhort. here an ideal institution for women.
Standing for a 'home' to women that
need a home or natural protectors, it is
one of the most beneficent institutions
that honor this community."
Richmond has a similar institution, and
authough not as well supported as it
might be, it is doing a no'>le work.
The Norfolk Dispatch says:
Colonel Marshall is posing as the Tide
water candidate. He appeals to us for
support on tho ground that he will rep
resent our interest
XORKOLK WANTS at Richmond and
TO KNOW. obtain for this
section sadly need
ed political recognition. Yet in what par
ticular has he promised to forward a
single Interest of this section? Where
has he attempted to show us that our
section or any section of the State will
by»b v » bcnelUed if he is chosen to the Ex
ecutive chair? lie Jias never come across
the river to say a word to the people of
Norfolk. It is true that he has held con
ferwioes with "friends" here just as have
the other candidates in the race. As for
the man Echols, he seems to nhv» deter
mined to give us even I<*sk satisfaction
in this most important mntter.
PERSONAL AND CRITICAL.
A special from SpringlleJd. Mass.. dated

"Well, your honor." said Mrs. Mc-

shure 'twas him done it."
"But you told me ho punched you in

Politics in Botctourt.
(Special Dispatch (•> The Times.)
FINCASTLE, VA.. April 22.— The gu
bernatorial contest in this county over
shadows everything of a political nature.
Early in tho action it seemed as though
the county was right evenly divided be
tween Mr. Swanson nnd Mr. Montague,
but Montague's strength has been grad
ually growing and now il is generally
conceded that he has tho county by a
safe and good majority. It has been
stated that Swanson's friends will try and
secure some of the delegates for Mr.
Echols. While our people entertain a
high regard for Mr. Echols, yet they be
lievo the fight lies between Montague
and Swanson, and Montague's friends will
not agree to such a proposition.
It ih. likely that Montague clubs will, at
an early date, be organized throughout
the county.
Fluvanna and .(ioodiland.
(SpdClal Dispatch to Tho Times )
KENT'S STOKE, VA., April 22.-The re
sults of the recent convention, held at
Columbia, Va.. for the purpose of nomi
nating a candidate for the Constitutional
Convention by the mass-meeting- advo
cates, has pretty well determined what
should have been the proper mode of ac
tion.
Indications arc now that both counties—
Fluvanna and Goochland— will rescind all
former actions in the mntter and hold pre
cinct meetings, as recommended by the
Goochland county chairman; and should
this be done, it will no doubt heal the
breach in the party in Fluvanna, and
both counties will then work together for
the election of the Democratic nominee.
The voters at large in this section are
heartily in favor of this plan, and hope it
will be carried out.

STATE QUARANTINE
Right of Protection Against Infectious Disease
Upheld.
(By Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, April 22.— The attention
of the United States Supreme Court was
given to-day largely to the question of
the right of one State to quarantine
against another. The contention arose in
connection with the case of AS r . P. Smith
vs. the St. Louis and Southwestern Rail
road Company, involving quarantine reg
ulations against the importation of cattle
in 1597.
To-day's opinion holds that the. State
had a right under its police power to pro
tect itself against Infectious disease, even
though commerce may be incidentally in
terfered with by tho regulations for such
protection.
Justices Harlan nnd "White united in a
dissenting opinion; and Justice Brown de
livered a dissenting opinion of his own.

Aguinaldo Thinks Insurreclion Will
Soon End.
(By A*soclnted Prp.«s.)
■MANILA, April 22.— A representative of
the press visited A'guinaldd ihis afternoon
at No. 56 Solonc Street, whither he was
removed from the aialacananj and found
him in a large room upstairs, furnished
with a table, typewriter machine, three
settees and twenty chairs. His wife, who
was entertaining ■'<• number of Filipino
women friends, sat at one end ot tiie
room, while Aguinal.lo, smoking a cigar
and chatting with Benlip Legardo, occu
pied the opposite corner.
Ho was rather reluctant to talk for pub
lication and considered every question
carefully before answering. He said he
was doing all he ould to assist In tho
pacification of the Philippines, and «
pressed himself as surprised at what the
Americans had accomplished.
•'I am now urging in the strongest pos
sible manner." said Aguir.aido. "that all
insurgents should surr.-irler and swear
allegiance to t».e Unite.l States."
He expressed the opinion that Tinio
L'ucabah. Malvar and other ~i preserva
tive insurgents will surre.irler as soon as
they como to understand the nature .->f
the" amnesty offered Uiem. He saidj.e
hoped that when the work of pacification
was complete and conditions were sett'ed
the prisoners in Guam '.v.v.ii-1 be teheed.
After referring in grateful term* *o the
courteous treatment accor.l-d him try the
military authorities, he declared Ins con
viction" that the civil wrn-h
would follow pacii'.catii.i WyU'O ictO'ze
the highest hopes of '.he Filipino people.
When questioned regarding t.i<-. report
that he would visit the United States: be
replied that ho would iik^ t.. 'lo ■•-■>. but
had made no plans as yet. placing hiaifelf
entirely at the disposition of tho Vr.i'ed
States Government.
Tn concluding the interview he ods- rvefl:
"Every word in my addri*s to ny cun
trymen, the Filipinos, c.imo from Tny
heart. I hope the ■Amerisns belisve me
thoroughly sincere in my efforts to s e ruro
peace, and, under American nus;>sW3, to
promote the welfare xnd |>r.jsp-ierity of
the Philippines."
