An attempt made by-Mr.' Cogbill to re
fluce the fine to $1 failed, and further at
tempt "made by Mr. Byars to strike out
the provision for the killing* of the dog
under such circumstances, and providing
for the" collection of the, tax. by the usual
methods of distress warrants, failed.
The only other feature of the, legislative
day injthc Senate was the passage of the
bill authorizing the construction of a

The day in tlio House was chiefly inter

The bill passed to the calendar.
Mr. Bruce, made an eloquent speech in
opposition to the . House bill imposing a
general tax on dogs. This is the Ma thews
dog law. which was strongly opposed in
the House. Mr. Bruce was very empha
tic in his declaration, that the feature of
the low providing for the killing of dogs
on which the tax was not paid, would re
sult in the killing of.men. ..'
Mr^Lyle made a speech against certain
features 'of the bill, and offered an amend
ment providing that instead of killing the
dog on which the tax" had not been paid,
the tax should be collected .by' leving on
other personal property. Mr. Lyle ma"de
a most. earnest plea for the. Virginia dog,
even the hound, whose "earscould be tied
urider. his chin." -:: — ,— ,«,
Mr.- Claytor advocated the bill in a
epeech of some length. /, He told of the
■operation of the law in Accomac, Augusta,
and Rappahannock." : Large' amounts of
taxes from negroes 'who pay no other
taxes have in this way been secured for
the Commonwealth in' Accomac. Under
the operation of the law the number of
sheep in Augusta have more than doubled.
In reply, to a qucstlonof.Mr. Wickham,
Mr. Ciaytor stated that' the tax was a
license tax and would be applicable in
counties ' which . make * dogs ' personal prop
erty and taxable; under. this head.
Mr. Byars moved to ' amend the bill

Mr. Shands said his-coontj-'liad twice
had a dog law, and each lime it. had prov
en unsatisfactory. •V-
Mr. Walker spoke for the :irincipleof
the bill but doubted the wisdom of mak
ing the law apply to the whole State, as
there was at -present a iaw wh'-.-h permit
ted boards of supervisors to legislate on
the subject.
Mr. Watkins advocated the 'bill In a for
cible speech. He declared that pulitical
considerations largely influenced those
who opposed the bill.* He thought that
a man who would not vote the Demo
cratic ticket because his dor: had boon
killed under- a law •; enacted oy a Deiiio
cratic Legisalture. ought lo nave been
killed along with the dog. Mr. Lyle sev
eral times interrupted Mr. VTatkins, an.l
the latier"s witty replies oaused much
laughter and applause.
Mr. , Barksdale called, for the pre
vious question at the conclusion of Mr. .
Watkins's speech; and the previous cues
tion was ordered. But the voto was re
crnsidered on the motion of Mr. Mirk
ham, and certain am en J men Is were of
One proposed by Mr. Cogbill reduced- to
li the penalty for faJhuo upon 'the part
of a. constable to kill a •lo>? upon whiui
the tax had not been t>aid. Mr. Lyle
moved to ev/npt the couii!i' ! s of Roanoko,
Montgomery and Crui^. Mr.. Slian-ls
moved to except Soutnampton; Mr. Bruce,*
the counties of Wise, Lee ( nad Scott.
Mr. Tyler spoke for the bill. He was
many times interrupted by Mr. Lyle, wno
was bitterly opposed. to the bill. Finally,
the Chair had to insist that ther/j be no
further interruptions. Mr. iyler made a
very can.est speech for the bill, in the
course of which he made reference to the
value of the sheep to mankind, quoting
the Spanish proverb, "Grass grows in
the footprints of the sheep."
Mr. Lyle replied briefly, in the course
of which he said he would vote. for-. a r
general .aw making the dog a subject of
taxation. : ' , ..-'''
The vote was then taken on an amend
ment proposed by Mr. Wlckliam, allowing
boards of supervisors by a two-thirds
vote to except their counties, from the
operation of the law. The amendment
was rejected.
The amendment proposed by Mr. Cog
bill, reducing the fine upon tiie constable
for failure to kill a dog was rejected.
Mr. Barksdals proposed the following
amendment: ..^ ;. .
i "All dogs known as'piigs', poodles, skye
terriers. and other dogs of-'the same kind
and ilk, and all dogs commonly led by
their owners with a string, or chain, shall
be assessed with a license tax of $5 each."
There -was much laughter, and the
amendment was rejected.
The amendments excepting various
counties were then rejected.
The amendment proposed by Mr. Byars,
providing that instead of dogs being killed
if the tax- on them were unpaid, that the
tax be collected by levy "arid distress upon
other personal property was also rejected.
The bill was then passed by a vote of
20 to 5, as follows:

' AVill StriUe—3lanV, Agitators.
BLUEi-'IELD, W. VA., March 21.— (Sp'e-
cial.)— lt has been .said by the operators
throughout this field for the past week
that the. grievances of. the miners wou'.cV
be settled soon, and that all indications cf-i
the strike' were fast passing away. Thi:.
is : "a .'mistake/ The strike is coming. I 1
is expecteif that before April 10th, from
20.0W) ito' :», 000 miners will lay down their
"picks' and walk out to wage a relentless
war for smaller cars and' recognition of
the. union.
This the operators will probably never
grant. The development of this field since
the great -strike ..of 1895 has been so great
that the operators have all grown im
mensely wealthy, and they say they will
never accede to such demands.
„,- On , the other hand, the miners have, all
.laid, .*Lway a snug sum of money to fight
-ion -what, they "say is justly due them.
' Besides- this, the United Mine .AVorkers*
Union has a million or more dollars, which
the agitators say will-be' freely and-syste
matically spent, to back the miners of the
Flat Top region in their demands.
Your correspondent has visited numerous
operations iv the field during the last
month, and talked with the most influen
tial miners, and judging from their ex
pressions, there is no possible power
•that ;ca,n; prevent the strike.
"' They "have been worked to a fronzy by
-the 'agitators, who. have -labored unceus r
ingly for 'months to - unionize "the mines,
and" their efforts have been crowned iwith
success. ; /
When winter leaves the strike will come,
and both operator and miner 'vill put
forth every effort to hold out the long
est. '
It will be a strong fight of labor to
down capital, and no one is willing to say
what will be the result.

A New Catarrh Cure Secures National
Popularity in Less Than One Year.
Throughout a great nation of eighty
niiilibiv;it""is''a desperate struggle to secure
even: {{'.recognition for an article, to say
nothing of achieving popular favor, and
yet within one year Stuart's Catarrh Tab

such success that to-day, it can be found
in every drug store throughout the Unit
ed States and Canada.
>-To.besure, a large amount of advertis

bring the remedy to the attention of the
public, but everyone familiar with the
subject knows that advertising- alone
never made any article permanently suc

catarrh- cure certainly, possesses in a
marked' degree^ '" ' ■'■"•' .-"'""'■
Physicians, who formerly depended upon

h If in need of a' laiat he remedy the most excellent is Synfp of Figs, but
f when anything more than a laxative is required'the safe and scientific plan
is to consult a, competent physician and not to resort to those .raeillcincs
\ which claim to cure all manner, of diseases. ■: . .-;/«/■'■
The California Fig Syrup Co. was the'firat to manufacture a laxative remedy
which would give satisfaction to all; a laxative which physicians could -
sanction and one friend recommend to another ; so that today its sales probably
exceed all other laxatives combined. \ In some 'places considerable quantities of
old-time cathartics andmodern imitations are still sold, but with the general
diffusion of knowledge, as to the best medicinal agents, Syrup of Figs has come
into'gcneral use with the well-informed, because it is-a remedy of known value
and ever beneficial action.
The quality of Syrup of Figs is due not only to the. excellent combination of
the laxative J and carminative principles of plants, known to act most beneficially
on the -system, with agreeable and refreshing aromatic liquids, but also to the
orginal method of manufacture. In order to get the genuine and its beneficial
effects one should always note tho full name of the Company— California Fig
Syrup Co.— printed on'the front of every package.
