Thero was little or no excitement in
iie State Democratic Convention.
Trlaich met in Norfolk yesterday, be
cause the contest for lirst place on the
tict-et had already been settled, nnd
the convention tv::s peaceful and har
monious. Far In- it from us to dis
turb the lmnnony that prevails; to tear
open old wotinds that have to all
appearances been healed, or to awaken
any feeling of bitterness. But the ies
son of this campaign must not be for
gotten, Hie significance of Mr. Mon
tague's nomination must not be over
It is too late to discuss ilio question
as to whether or not there 3ias been
a political machine in Virginia, which
promoted bossism in ilie party, but it
cannot be denied that a large majority
of the Democrats of Virginia believed
that such a machine existed and timi
the time had 001:10 1o overthrow ir.
■A-t the outset Mr. Swanson sent out, a
circular letter to.the party-workers in
the State, which attracted much at
tention as soon as it was made public,
and which was interpreted by the ma
jority to mean that Mr. Swanson had
announced himself as the candidate
of the machine and that he looked
to the machine rather than to the
masses lo secure his nomination. We
do not now mean to say that Mr.
SwnnMin intended so to declare him
self- lie has positively and indignant
ly denied that such was his meaning,
and he is an honorable man. It is
none the less true, however, that the
masses did so interpret his letter, nnd
It is none the less true that that letter
was largely responsible for Mr. Swan-
eon's defeat.
IvOt us again emphasize the fact that
we are not disposed to rake up old
scores, but we s:iy that the signifi
cance of Ihis campaign must not In
overlooked ami die lesson musl not be
forgotten. We recall these circum
sjances by way of giving warning to
the new regime. We would direct at
tention to tlie fact and emphasize the
fact that in old Virginia the people
rule and that they regard public of
ficials as tl¥'lr servaxtts and not as their
masters. They will not for lon.tr tol
erate bossism or any appearance of it,
and whenever they have, reason to be
lieve that anything like a political
oligarchy in this old Corninonwealth
is being attempted, as sure as fate they
will rise up in their might and ma
jesty and put it down. Our advice to
the new regime is ihat it take wiaruing
from the lesson of the occasion.
Th? 1 speech of Mr. Clande A. Svr.-m
son before _ie Democratic Conveulion
in Norfolk, did honor to the mau and
to tilie Democratic party, of which he
is an honored and an honorable mein
bec. It was a model of pood taste
and jrood temper and eloqiioht in its
manifest sincerity- It is easy for a
ruau lo be amiable when t lie wrc-riih.
of triumiih rests upon his brow; it is
not so easy for him to be ainin Me in
defeat. It must also be remembered
that Mr. Swanson lind been in i In
habit of succeeding in all of his under
takings. Several years ap:o, when he
"was comparatively unknown, he set
out to secure Democratic nomina
tion for Congress from the Fifth I'is
triet of Virginia, and lie had a hanl
road to travel— just how hard none ex
cept those who were with him in thai
campaign understand. But in spite
of all the, obstacles in the way. lie se
cured the nomination, and then, under
more difficulties, he was elected in ;i
district where the opposition was
strong and had more than once tri
umphed. He served his people well,
however, in Congress, and every two
years since thai time hn has been reg
ularly reijominaied and elected
j\lr. Swanson lias been an active and
a prominent member of the House of
Representatives for several terms, has .
taken a conspicuous part in the politi
c_l affairs of St;*.' and nation, and in !
many a contest of one character or
another his influence lias been brought
to bear. But it' he was ever defeated ;
in any of these undertakings, we do
not recall the fact. Long ago he set
Ids heart upon being Governor of Vir
ginia—a worthy and noble aspiration,
and he luid good reason lo believe that ■
this honor would be his for the asking.
He was conndent when this campnijjn
opened that he would win an Lisy
victory over his opponents, and diCot- j
less he had many times In his quiet
momem.fi outlined the speech of sjrate
ful acceptance which he would make
before the Democratic Convention of I
1901. He made a brilliant canvass. ;
and he was ready at all times and un- !
<3er all circumstances to .urn before the
people and declare the fail!-, that was
in him. Indeed, ne seemed to sec';
every such opportunity to let the jieo
ple see and liear'hlm, and he seemed
to be confident that it" he could but
prcseait his claims before the Demo- j
crats of Virginia they would bestow
upon h|m ilie honor which he desired.
We say that Mr. Swa_sou had been
In the habit of succeeding, and old
Jiabits are bard to break. .say.
moreover, that he. had reason to believe
ifbat ho would keep up the habit, of
winning 5n this caujyaign. But for
this ono time the lost and his disap
pointment must liavo been keen.
a man "would hare become em
bittered and would hare been dis- j
poj*ed to drop into platitudes concern- ;
ing the \mgratefuluess of political
•parties, and something of that bitter
ness -would In sgite of himself have
croxowd out in. his remarks before the
convention. But Swanson is made of
different stuff. When he started out
in tins campaign, ho put on a pleasant
smile and he wore it through to the
ejid. Finally, when he was hauled up
before the convention to thank the
delegates for not nominating him and
to make (he usual consolation speech—
a most trying ordeal for any man— he
showed himself to be a Democrat and
a philosopher nnd said the right thing
at the right time.
We cannot withhold the expression
of our compliments nnd best wishes
to the defeated candidate. Swanson
is •stronger at. the close of the cam
paign than he was at the beginning.
and he has lost nothing except the
nomination, lie is a young, man and
for that he can well afford to wait. If
he lives long enough and continues to
conduct himself as he lias done
through this campaign, he will sooner
or later be Governor of the Common
wealth of Virginia.
Several years ago a negro was burn
ed at the stake in the town of Paris,
Texas, for criminally assaulting a
white woman, and the incident caused
a sensation throughout the length and
breadth of the United States. The
Item was printed in the newspapers
under scare h<*ids. and hardly a news
paper in the land which did not dis
cuss the. horrible tragedy in its edito
rial columns. It was the first time
that such awful punishment, had .been
1 inflicted upon one of these black
brutes, and the whole country was
Since that time, however, several
other negroes have been punished in
the same manner for the same crime;
and when a negro was burned at the
stake in Georgia the other day the
newspapers made little ado about it,
and we have seen but two references
to it in the editorial columns of our
numerous exchanges.
Is it possible that we are getting used
to this sort of barbarism? Is it possi
ble that a human being can be burn
ed alive in the South without exciting
our wonder and without provoking
criticism V Are wo, indeed, becoming
so callous that an act of barbarism
does not touch our pity, or stir the
grace that is within us? God forbid.
but these are not idle questions, and
the law-abiding people of rhe South
may well take them to heart and give
them their prayful consideration.

Officials of the United Suites Steel
Corporation gave out the following
statement yesterday:
"As tin result of the attempt by the
American Tin-Plate Company to start
its Orescent Works at Cleveland in
twenty-four hours, half the mills were
put in successful operation, manned
largely bj former workmen who have
seceded from the Amalgamated Asso
ciation, stating their belief that the
officers oi' the association had done
wrong in violating their written agree
ment with the company. The start at
Cleveland having succeeded, the com
pany will in a short time make a sim
ilar move elsewhere."
it becomes more and more apparent
that the worst blow President Shaf
fer could have dealt organized labor
was his order to members of his or
ganization to violate their contract
agreements with the companies for
which they were working. The men
who were working under contract
knew that this order was morally
wrong and they musj; have lost con
fidence then and the* in their leader.

'Squire Graves Handles a Loag Bat Important
The many friends of Justice Crutchfield
were much troubled to learn yesterday
that he was again tou unwell to leave
his room and would be unable to hold
court for some days. Justice Joha
■.va_s called home from his vacation
sojourn at Jordan Springs by a return of
the indisposition "which made him a pris
oner for some six weeks or two .mouths
last spring:. Tuesday he was well
enough to bo out and hold court, al
though looking rather badly. But yes
terday morning ho was again unable to
answer to tho roll-c_ll.
Yesterday 'Squire Craves dispensed
justice to all comers for an hour or more.
There was no case of very general or
commanding: importance. Ono or two
may develop into something later.
Detectives Gibson and Wn n had round
ed up an unprci'iissessing bunch of ne
groes, whom they charged with being 1
suspicious characters. Basil Lawrence
and one or two others of the tfanjj will
be held for ten days until the police have
completed their evidence ngainfft them.
W. M. .Johnson, alias Henry Knapper,
who seemed to be the leader of the gawff,
had retained the services of Mr. I>. O.
■\Venclenberg:, who argued long and skiil
tully concerning Johnsons innocence,
etc. Detective Gibson as skillfully eom
batted the arguments of .Mr. Wendenbergf,
and went so far as to admit that, apart
from the charge of stealing a coat, the
character of this crowd seemed to be
somewhat assailed by the fact that in
their baggage had been found a number
of flimtlam pocket-books, knives, etc., of
the character that they had used in their
opi rations 0:1 members ofthefr own race.
Johnson's case will be heard in full on
Tuesday next. 'Squire Graves named $500
as. the bail, and this Johnson was unable
to give.
