'W done for several preceding- days?'
i iarpe :n:mber of bills passed by the
7-"c"' - se' -were- received, anfd several were"
under suspension of the rules, and
-; others placed on the calendar.
V-,-- the bills thus passed was one

imijtjngham county on the question of
■ "(. removal of the court-house. The
4j cl!S c bill incorporating- the Newport
\e*s Ocnoral Hospital Association was
similarly passed. ,
A few minutes after tho Senate con
vr-rtd the Governor's private secretary
..•"cared and delivered to the Senate a
veto message, accompanying- the Senate
s)iii..icinendiag the law affecting the ap-
Tioiiitinent <>f County Surveyor and Su
rerintendent of the Poor of' Tazewell
ceojiiy. The veto message follows:
To tho Senate of "Virginia:
"l LereArith return Senate Bill No. 2-1.7,
•ntltled "£n fict to amend and re-enact
sgs g C j;on 95 of the Code of Virginia, relat
inE to the appointment of county sur
vtvor anJ superintendents of the poor as
to'iha county of Tazewell," without my
This rs a measure of seemingly little
importance, yet it Involves a principle for
; -which I vetoed "House Bill Xo. 173, re
latiag to tb e appointment of assessors of
lanfis for the county of Warwick."
This measure changes the appointment
of county surveyor and superintendents
of the poor, and 5n my opinion Is con
trary to good public policy. For this rea
soivimd also at the request of the honor
able representative from Tazewell, whose
people alone- are affected by the imme
diate provisions of the bill, I return it
without my approval.
Section 93 of the Code provides that
■■-•■ d; county court judge, upon the re-;
commendation of the board of supervi
sors* of Ms county, shaJl, at the May
term of his court, in the year IS9I and
every fourth year thereafter, appoint, for
each county in which he holds his court.
one county surveyor and one superin
tendent oftlie poor; provided, that such
judge may, if he thinks proper, reject the
recommendation; and unless the Board of
Supervisors recommend other persons
fcu'.table in his opinion for said offices
within thirty days after their first re
commendation has been rejected, he shall
fill the said onices, or cither of them, by
his own appointment in term or in vaca
tion." This bill amends this section by
providing that "the County Court ot,
Tazewell country or the judge thereof in
vacation, shall appoint a superintendent
of the poor and a county surveyor with
out the recommendation of the Board of
curc-rvlsors of said county of Tazewell."
it i 3 not necessary to enter into the
cifCUESion of the merits of the general
leav, or recount the reasons that might
be given for or against this Proposed
tPecial Iclv,-. I would only call attention
to the advisability of having general laws
on all such subjects, and of adhering
Etrictly to them. The number of special
acts which now encumber our statute
books are strong arguments In favor of
this principle. The Constitution, Article
VI., sc-ction 20, wisely provides in regard
■to cities that "no special act shall be
passed except. in cases when, in the judg
ment of the General Assembly, the object
of such act cannot be attained by gene
ral la-aY" It is to be regretted that the
provisions of th's clause of the Constitu
tion do not apply to counties, and. In
fact, to all subjects of legislation, as well
us to cities.
:;. An" examination of our statute-books
t:;ov;s that the practice of passing special
«<cts, when the general law covers all that
should '--be embraced, is increasing- to an
■banning extent, and I fear much of it
has a dc-moralldng tendency.
It may not be inaripropriate to call at
ttntion to tlio fact that I have before me
at this time a number of bills granting
special privileges and favors to several
counties, and giving local authorities the
right to create salaries where they do not
now exist; and to increase ths amounts
now being paid to county and district
officers. If it is best to create new sala
f!t-d positions, or to increase tlie pay of
those already in existence, general sta
vutes should be passed on the subject, giv
ing uniformity of cojapensation through
out, the State. When the officers of one
county or district receive compensation,
however. small, while those o£ a neighbor
tog'. county or district do not receive a
Jlte compensation, or are serving without
I- 3 *', It naturally causes dissatisfaction,
sod rts cits, in less efficient services even
'com those who would otherwise be will
i"!T to serve without pay.
- have not felt justified in vetoing these
various hills, yet I feel that it is not im-
I'ropw for me to make these general sue
c*stior:s, for in my opinion the tendency
°- such k?;<»!atlon is bad, and if follow
1 'o its logical conclusion will result not
in exeat confusion and inequality of
compensation, for the same services ren
oert-a, but enable local authorities to ex-
Nnd the: public moneys for salaries in
tiaay cuse* sgainst the wishes and In-;
ri>*iv Jt °' the People. I fully realize the
"inieulties that confront members of the
•^t"i? laiure when requested to offer bills
character, and a united'effort on

discussion the Senate proceeded to con
sider Judge Mann's substitute.
Judge Mann stated that the passage of
the delinquent land' act wa? an admis
sion on ths part of Use General Assembly
that the olllcers of the Commonwealth
v.'ere not equal, to the task of collecting
the taxes due her. His bill seeks to com
pel treasurers to. sell land delinquent,
first paying the taxes and costs of pro
cedure, and then turning over the resi
due, if there be any, to the person or
persons entitled to it. Judge Mann spoke
briefly, but very earnestly, for the pas
sage of the substitute.
. Mr. Jeffries spoke for his bills, and
against tho substitute. He argued that
the cost to tho land-owner under -tho
substitute would be much greater than
under the measures which he proposed.
Ho also objected to the substitute as be
ing too much like the original .law, as it
existed prior to its repeal by the last
General Assembly.
Mr. AVickham thought that while the
objectof Mr. Mann's substitute was, to
soften the rigors_ of the land-grabbers'
lav/, its working would be precisely the
revers. The necessities of the State did
not demand tho enactment of such a
severe measure.
Mr. LAipton very briefly urged the pas
sage of the bills offered by Mr. Jeffries,
and Mr. Cogbill, in a short speech, es
poused the same side. Mr. Cogbill called
attention to the fact that the Mann bill
put a premium upon delinquency, or the
sale of delinquent land. Under the bill
a treasurer- would receive $50 for collect
ing taxes by selling the land, whereas,
he would receive 50 cents for collecting
the same taxes without sale.
Judge aMmh vigorously defended his
bill. He denied that the cost to the de
linquent under his biir would be greater
than under the Jeffries bills. Judge
•Mann was inaJciiig a very able speech for
his bill when Mr. Munford moved to ad
journ until Monday. The motion pro

The Session of ib.e House,
Tho session of the House yesterday
was opened with prayer by Rev. George
H. Spooner. In the absence of Speaker
Saunders, who had gone to' his home, in
Franklin county, Mr. Ryan presided in
the chair. Tho feature or the session wa's
the discussion of the land-grabbers' act,
which will probably occupy the House for
several days.
When House Bill 31S, providing for reg
ulating the salaries of . members and
officers of tho House of Delegates, was
reached, there was a brief, but warm, de
bate between Major Barclay; its author,
and Mr. John Whitehead, of Norfolk.
Major Barclay made a strong appeal for
the passage of the measure at once, and
Mr Whitehead wanted it passed by. The
land-grabbers' substitute, the special or
der fixed lor 1 P- M.. was taken up, and
further debate on the Barclay measure
was cut off. ? .
Mr Anderson, who has taken prece
dence as the champion of a new delin
quent tax law, took' the -iloor and spoke
in advocacy of his bill. Ho spoke nearly
two hours, urging the necessity for new
legislation on tho subject of taxation,
and emphasizing the provisions of his
bill which he offered as a substitute for
that which emanated from the commit
ted He was interrupted by Mr. Pilcher,
and agreed to yield for a motion to ad
journ, with the understanding that >c
tliould have the floor again on Monday..
Dr Robinson, of Carroll, offered the
following, which was agreed to:

sorrow of the death of Mrs. George A.

is this?
'Common whiskey contains 'fusel oil.'
It is a . poison, deadly and insinuating-.
It acts on the. blood to separate the

results? Such separation means a de

no" fusel •■ oil, and it actually binds .the

His Airr, Fairr Queen.
. (Chicago Times-Herald.} ,
He loved her for her fragile form,
■Her -pale, angelic face;
He loved her for her swanlike neck,
Her slender, .willowy grace :
She was an airy fancy, and
He had an artist's taste— : -
His collar might have almost spanned
The winsome creature's waist.
In tender tones he told her of '
The passion In his' breast,
; And then she nestled In his arms—
The preacher did the rest! .
He looked with pride upon his bride— ,
His "airy, fairy queen" ;
And every day was. fair, and they .
Were blissful and serene.
