HARMONY DINNER TALK Democrats Here Think There Should Have Been More Silver Represent tation Present toJoin the Move ment?Political Gossip Dr. J. F. Bryant, of Southampton, en? tered the race for Congress in the Se? cond District yesterday. There can be no further entries, as the list closed lasfl night. Messrs. Bryant. Lawless, and Maynard are the candidates. and a lively three coi-nered struggle is in prospect. The pri mary takes place on August 19th, and the battle is expected to rage fiercely until the last vote is east. Dr. Bryant is expected to have a great deal of strength, especially in the rural sections of the dlstrict. Mr. Lawless has already made a very active canyass, and Mr. Maynard and his friends have been hard at work. The announcement of the candidacy of Dr. Bryant it is said will add many com plications to the struggle, and all sides are claiming the victory. The race for Congress in the Sixth Dis? trict is getting to be a very spirited one. Senator Glass was given a great ovation by the people of South Boston the other night, and he and Senator Claytor are expected to lock horns ln Joint debate at Houston on Monday. Sheriff W. M. Crouch, of Goochland, was at the Stute Library on offlcial bus? iness yesterday. Mr. Croueh i s a strong iness to-day. Mr. Crouch is a strong supporter of Mr. Jefferson Wallace for Congres3 from this district and says he believes rds favorite has a good chance to win. "I have notning against Captain Lamb." said the popular offlcer, "but I like the gamo fightlng qualities of Jeff. Wallace. He stands all right up my way and >ve will give him a fino vote." Dcmocrats who discuss tlie "harmony" dinner in New York are not catried away with it. They say that in order to hrve "harmony that would harmonize." Colonel Bryan should have been asked to make an address. He waa invited to be one of the guests, but not to speak. Col? onel Bryan did not reply to the lnvita tion, nor was he present. There is no special feeling of enthusiasm expressed over the dinner by Democrats here to day, though most of them who discuss it commend the tone of all the speeches. As a rulc, they are glad Governor Mon tague was invited, and feel that his in ylta.tion was quite a rompliment to the State. Governor Montague was the only Southern Demwrat of prominence pres? ent. and was the only speaker from sonth of New York State. The dinner has started some presl dential talk. though the convention is so far off that it is mostly speculative, both as to the candidate and the. plat form. r.'bere is one thing howcyer, upon which all seem to N- united. a*d that is that old issues must be thrown overboard. and that in orrior t'i win f?i? party must make a plx:?-.- m on olrl fashioned Democratic lines and upon live business question1" Senator Hill has long b3?i a favorite here. and he is belicved'te'rio the choic of a vast number of so'.-.rtC:tn Dcmo? crats for the nominatioi in 1904. There was a discussion between offi? cers at the Capttol last night ovei a propnsition which is likely to call for construction when the new Constitution goes into effect. It was in regaro to the use of railroad passes in certaiu cases It w^s said that a town sergeaut in'southwest Virginia is also in the eni ploy of the Norfolk and Western rail? road as a private tletective. and that as such he rides on free passes over it'hei road. The question was whether he,. b-ing an employe of tne road. wouid be a'lowed to continue the use of the pass, .\nd hold his office as serseant. ?h< latter opinion seemed to be that the pass provision of the new Constitution wouid operate in this case. and woiud prevcrt the sergeant from using the pass while holding his office. There are some Republlcans in trif State who bolieve the new Constitution will not b upset in the courts. The Committee on Enrollment was at work vesterdav. Professor Wagner's copy was o'oming and was h.einfr examined. A Republican member of the committee was asked what was the use of having the instrument ongrossed with so much care if it was to be des.troyed by his party in the courts. "They'll never de stroy it." was the quick reply. "There are 'some bad features in the Constitu? tion but as a whole it is a good one. and I believe it will stand and become the orcanic law of the State." Bv no means are all of the Republi? can-; opposed to the Constitution. Some of them are standing up for it manful ly.

VERY REL.G10US fi ?: Preached a Sermon at the City Hall in Aix-La-Chappelle, Prussia. (By Associated Press.) ATX-LA-CHAPPELLE, PRUSSIA, Jjny 20.?A^striking speech on religion was de livered by Emperor William at the City Hall here yesterday after his arrival from Bonn, accompanied by the Empress and the Crown Prince Frederick William. Hc said in part: "In these days the young Emplre ls strengthening itsclf and confidence in It Is ever increasing. The mighty Gcrmaj; army constitutes the support of the peace of Europe. In conformity with the character of their race. the Gormans have kept themselves within bounds, far outside the world concerned. in order to be wholly unfettered at home. Our tongue is passing beyony the seas. Every thought of science is first turned to account by us, to be afterwards adopted by other nations. This is the world-wide Imper ium after which Germanic genius strives. "But it must not be forgotten that the Empire was rooted in simplicity and fear of God. I look to all, priests and iay men, to help me uphold religion among the people, so that the Grraan name may preserve its health and strength. This applies equally to the two creeds, Catholic and Protestant. "It is with pride and joy that I am able to tell you that the Pope said to my special ambassador, who went to Rome on the occasion of the Holy Fath er's jubilee, that he had always kept a high opinion of the piety of the Germans, and especially that of the German army. The Pope askcd my ambassador to tell his Sovreign that tho country in Eu? rope where control, order and disciplina. still prevalled with rewpect for authorlty and regard for the Church. and where the Church could live, was tha Ger? man Empire, and for that the Pap.el See was indebted to the German Empire. " 'This justifles me.' continued Emper? or William. 'in saying that our two great creeds, while living side by side, must keep in view their one great aim--to up? hold and strengthen the fear of God and roverence for religion. Whenever we are modern. or whether we labor in this or that field does not matter at ali. He who does not found his life on religion, is a lost man. I rejoice that I have placed my whole Empire, my people and my armv. as well as myself and my house. beneath the cross and under the proteetlon of Him who said: 'Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My word shall not pass away.' " (Continued from First Page.) Richardson remaincd at No. 254 Bank Street and her father spent the. night with friends.

Miss Richardson agreed to return with her father to Lou? isa; Hassel agreed to Iet Mr. Richardson alone in the future. and the father fi naily agreed to drop the proposed prose cution. MATRIMONIAL ESCAPADES. Misr Richardson was urged not to talk. but Hassel talked freely. ' I'll swear any and all questions." said he. "in order to be set right before the public. I did not come here to get married. I am already married and do not wish to commit bigamy. Miss Rich? ardson is a music teacher and has been supporting herself. She has been to various States and has recently been to Florlda. She came here. to get a music class and I came .here to "take a position. We came together from Richmond." ?Tt has been said that you have exer ois*-d hypnr>tism over Miss Richardson to get her here. Ts that eorrect?" ?'It is false." hc said with much feel jn?r *-The newspapers do not always tell the truth. T am not a hypnotist. but would like to be one for the experienoe.

She was a Miss Jennie B. C. Webster. I secured a ni vorce from her in Oklahoma City in l-SSS. She is now Mrs. Wyant in the. photo graph business in Richmond. Six months after I married Miss Mary Wrenn, in Norfolk. She was 42 years old. She left me and is now in West Virginia. Oh but I would like to see her just to talk over matters. She will testify that I did not try to get married again while I was married to her." "It has been said that you told Miss Richardson to wait six months so that you could get married again; in other words the Oklahoma divorce permitted you to get married again at the explr;i "t:o7i of six months so that your marriage with Miss Wrenn was invalid." "That's a falsehood. My present wife will testify to that effect." DRANK CREAM SODA. Here is a summary of some of Hassel's statements: "I'm not a hypnotist, but I'd like to be one for the novelty of it. "When I was married I liked to take the iiirls around and drink icc cream soda. My ^second wife said she could not join us because she had household duties to perform. "I love that girl and she loves me. "My second wife left me, but I would like to talk matters over with her. "I am a vi'tim of circumstances. "Yes I visited Miss Richardson the same'as any young man would have done. "My father is a very wealthy man and r "wouldn't want him to know about this."' , T , "Miss Richardson loves me and I love her" said Hassel, "but it is just a case of quit. and that is all.
