TEMPTING TOBACCONISTS.
The two great tobacco companies of
tho world have gone to war, and It Is
war to the knife—or to the bank account,
rather. The American Company a year
op more ago commenced to do business in
England, and the Imperial was organized
lo fight it. Instead of pursuing regular
old-fashioned business methods and try
ing to outrival its competitor by offering
to the public better goods at the prevail
ing prices, the Imperial on the ISth in
stant issued a circular offering a large
bonus to its customers, retail men, who
would undertake "not" to sell the Ameri
can's goods for a term of years.
They advertised widely, appealing to
23^-1 tisii* 'patriotism' t for"s'apport in jtheir
fight against the American trust, and
at last proposed, in effect, that the public
should boycott the American Company's
goods, whether made in that country or
this.
In pursuance of this boycotting scheme,
Jte Imperial offered bonuses to the amount
of 5230.000 per annum, which movement
h.as been "countered" by an offer from
ifie American Company,. to give in bonuses
ijH tlieir,. profit jn.J.hat. country and $1,
t'3.1.000 a year for the next four years!
•'{'Unless British patriotism and dogged
ness stands the Imperial in uncommonly
pi»od .stead. St 1 would seem that the offer
ai the American Company is overwhehn
•Virginia and North Carolina as tobacco
growing States would like to see com
petition in the leaf tobacco trade, and
Isatjiban be .secured best by the continued
Ixistence of the two companies. As we
jave said;-; tli isj ls a right whore much de
lends upon the pugnacity and pertinacity/
>f the British retailers and their cus
tomers.
{ It may be that those who adhere to the
fortunes of the home company will have
jthc 'sympathy ."and support of many pco-
HcV'!who in .-"their own lines of business
jjave^folt the sharpness of American com
petition. On the other hand, the "boy
cott" is exceedingly haterul to thousands
l>f Englishmen; besides, tobacco is a
plant not grown at all in England, and
only to a moderate extent in her Austra
lian colonies.
tln this part. of Uncle Sam's domain the
snanscs will wish the Imperial well, but
the fact remains that the British com
pany has started a race in which .they
in'ay be outrun. However, they had to
do something. They could not stand'
still. They had to quit business or light,
and true to the traditions of Joliti Bull,
they have chosen the latter course.
f. By a vote 0f. 33 to 13 the bill proposing'
to lease, out the oyster grounds of Mary
land in the Chesapeake bay has. failed
in, the Senate of that State.
1, Ttcf erence has been made in the Dis
patch Ic> tho death of George W. Ward,
of . Winchester, formerly a member of the.
State Senate, but we do not recollect
that it ever has been stuti-d lhatihe was
h. brother of: the late It. D. Ward, of
iticliniond. "Bob" Ward was a lawyer,
■iv'ho was much beloved-; by. newspaper
folk; and was hhnßiiliy considerable oT a
■writer, particularly of 4 local hislory.'ln his
latter .years he filled the position of-tip
£t'afl? of tho: Court of "Appeals, and, as In
duty bound, he; kept fine order in tho
court-room, lie and" the Senator both
%v ere men of ability and amiability, and
i ■ .-. ' . . . - r
to' their credit are many good and gene
rous deeds done their fellow men.
MIM3SJS USES.
| We confess to a. prejudice against Gen
eral' Nelson A. Miles— a prejudice that is
of long standing and: which most southern
iisjoplo will agree is entirely justifiable and
defensible. His general make-up and style
arc 'not such as. to command our respect,
Slid .there is one particular chapter in his
record which riles us every time we recall
It. Yet we have to confess also tliat there
are- certain things about Miles which,
willy-nJliy, compclf from, us sneaking ad
miration. These arc his? persistency, the
• impenetrability of his cuticle to the slings
and. arrows hurled at him by the autocni
llo .War Department ring, and the ' elas
city with which he rebounds to an upright
and'deflant uttitude after being knocked
down. By intimations that his advice
doeen't count and that his opinions are
not, regarded as worthy of the slightest
consideration;; and by positive rebuffs and
rabukes, ililes has -been f laid but of tener
and laid out flatter than any other man" in
thfi United- BUtes, holding a .: prominent
.Official, position. But h©-has never, failed
to "bob up" serenely and : "chipper.' -nnd
ÜBlresh as. a dalsy^- remove
rßuuntlet frbuv his ; sword-hand^ and
pOytQ '.town-am a;challcnß«;to his admin
letrallon enpinltts. to "come a«alb," Aed
while" conf essinp we mJght : as well ) make
a clean breast of it, and admit— although
I wo do so grudgingly— th.at, Miles ;has.: his
uses. .-.-.- ■ _ -. : - ' :>-:;;: >- :; ; - r -■"-• ■' ■ "" '-
> ■ Hardly .had died away the echoes;of the
resounding knock-out whack"; General
Miles provoked by, his .proposition -to go to
the Philippines and end the^war,; before he
JhvJted another, and, pefhnps. disciplinary
blow, by criticism of, aHd'bpposltion to,
tlie army reorsTUiization bill, especially
tho. "general stafT* feature thereof. - Tho
bill was prepared by Secretary of War
Root and Adjutant-General Corbin, and is
a pet" of ; theirs. At a private hearing be
fore the Senate Committee on Military
Affairs Miles swore by "flery-eyed' Mars"
that if the bill became a law he would re
sign. Aside from the' broad military objec
tions to it as he saw them, and which he
urged in detail, he declared that the mea
sure would degrade his office: and ho con
tended that under one of the sections of
the measure "it would be competent to
one day promote a captain to the position
of brigadier, and the next day make him
chief of staff, thus practically placing a
captain at the head of the army."
So it would seem. 'But why not. if the
policy of the Navy Department is to
be taken as a precedent by. the War De
partment, and President Roosevelt is not
to be rebuked? Did not the Navy Depart
ment, in organizing the fleet that operated
against Cervera, do virtually the very
thing Miles held would be rendered com
petent by the Root-Corbin bill? And did
not the President, in reviewing the Schley
case and sustaining the iniquitous ver
dict of the majority of the court of inquiry
commit himself to the principle of "a cap
tains' fight?" If a captains' fight is com
petent, why not a captains' war? Miles
was audacious and',, stated facts at the
expense of discretion: for he' pave both the
powerful naval clique and the President
a severe back-handed lick.
But his indiscretion and his provoca
tion to the War Department and the Pres
ident to "sit on him," did not stop here.
"Warming up," we are told, "he asserted
that the bill was calculated to accomplish
no purpose, except to allow the Secretary,
of War and the Adjutant-General to pro
mote the interests of their personal favor
ites." Then he informed the committee
"in confidence," that with the bill a law
he could now name the men who would
hold the places of honor provided under
it. No wonder that after these two shots
there is talk of another "roasting" for
Miles, which will practically render his
resignation or application for retirement
necessary. We are not prepared to say
that in either event the country or the
army would suffer greatly. But we think
that Miles's latest performance is well
calculated to buttress our suggestion that
he has his uses, seeing that it can hardly
fail to awaken the public mind more tho
roughly than ever before to the bureau
cratic abuses at Washington, and empha
size the demand for a change of adminis
tration that will wipe them out. What
ever may be the general merits of the
bill, in view of the many late evidences of
the rule of favoritism at the national
capital, it will be recognized that Miles
shot very close to the mark. .
MR. WILSON'S CHANGE.
The journalistic field of this city suffers
"a most decided loss by the retirement of
Mr. Harvey L. Wilson from the associate
editorship of the Richmond News, and
that of Newport News makes a distinct
gain by his acceptance of the position of
editor-in-chief of the Newport News
Times-Herald.
Mr. Wilson is one of the most thoroughly
equipped newspaper men in Virginia, and
our contemporary down on the Roads has
drawn a prize in securing his services.
In addition to his talents as a writer Mr.
Wilson enjoys a wide acquaintance and a
personal popularity that cannot but make
immensely for tho success of the enter
prise with whicn he has now cast his lot.
PENSION SAFEGUARDS. ;. : v
The Caton bill, with respect to pensions.
now under, discussion in the House of
Delegates, differs in essential particulars^
froln the Senate bill, and in the opinion
of many persons affords safe-guards which
the latter does not present. The Circuit
courts will be called upon to administer
it. and those who were added to the
lists under the Parks law will be required
to file their applications anew; but; it is
argued, they will be. glad to do so, inas
much as the new law instead of giving
them a pittance of $2 or ?3, such as they
received last year, will put them on full
equality with the, old pensioners.
Whether the Caton bill is just the thintr
wanted or not the Dispatch isreally unable
to say, not having had the privilege of
hearing all of the arguments used pro and
con; but we are sure! public sentiment—
veterans* sentiment, "especially — will sus
tain the Legislature in whatever effort it
makes to provide for the worthy and cx
chule the unworthy. Some check would
seem: to he necessary if it be true, as
has been stated, -that some counties are
trying 1 to outdo other couni.es in drawing
upon the pension appropriation. We must
hope that there is no such rivalry; but it
appears to. he admitted that the Virginia
pension ' rolls contain names that ought
not to he there.
The pension question is difficult to deal
with. ' It is a' "ticklish"" subject, niost
public men are afraid of it, yet we have
heard nothing- but approbation expressed
for Governor Montague in his bold and
straightforward method of dealing- with
the resolution setting- apart for pensions,
in -advance of any legislation, $303,000 in
the State treasury.
It is a pity Virginia hasn't adopted the
Georgia system of laying a special tax for
pensions. In that way the pension ques
tion is removeu from discussion where
general revenue is i concerned, and the
tax-payers are at liberty to be as generous
as they please with disabled veterans and
the widows of our soldiers.
it not be said that the tax-re
duction resolution adopted by the Con
stitutional Convention meets this very de
mand. We think not. If the experience
of Georgia is to count for anything the
proposed provision of- our 'new Constitu
tion would prove hopelessly inadequate.
But that ilside.. All we wish to say now
Is that the Legislature ought faithfully
tfnd zealously to try to'frame a law that
will give relief to the worthy and shut
out the unworthy applicants, and in that
purpose-it will find' itself sustained by a
hearty^ public sentiment. . ■

of the 'convention, is at stake. If a good

thing.
A School Reminiscence.. ,■: ;-
A Connecticut school master thrashed
forty-nine scholars in one day, .and the
Nutmeg State. papers are bragging .that
he broke the record:- He may have brok
en the modern record, but not that of. the
"better days of the Republic." Just be
fore the war between the States the late
"Richard Anderson more* than doubly over
topped " the Connecticut, man's perform
ance. It was when he was classical as
sistant :to William Dabney Stuart, whose
school house was on the north side of
Clay street between Fifth and Sixth.
Stuart^was sick, and "old Dick," as the
assistant was affectionately called— for he
was as fine a man as ever lived— was
running things alone. The boys, about
one hundred and fifteen in number, .in
dulged in a concerted. and excesslv&.'out-,
burst of hilarity arid devilrneritV and'An-
dcrson vowed by the shades of some dbs'eri
or more Latin, and Greek; authors that if
they repeated it he would wallop tho
whole party. We did repeat it, and An
derson, who had expected the repetition,
and armed himself with a bundle of
switches cut from the trees in the yard
of. the German Lutheran church on Sixth
street,; . proceeded to keep - his. vow,', in fast
and furious style. ..The schoiars ranged in
age from ten to seventeen and eighteen
years, and not one escaped. It was a
circus while it lasted and the yowls and
laughter evoked by the occasion might
have been heard squares off. When Ihe
last of the boys had been dressed down,
Anderson was so^exhausted that we had
to turn, in and fan him with Mitchell's
atlases "to' -prevent'- hiny from' fainting;." -'So
'the Connecticut school"' 'teacher '"-didn't
break the record of the "better cay's "of
the Republic," , as not a few men .who still
have a lively recollection of that painful
but ridiculous experience in Stuart's
school on a certain June morning can
testify.

A contemporary has this: -Mr. Seddon,

knov/n as "King Dick," thinks he can

PLAN FOR COAL ROAD.
Baliir.ioi-CRiis Interested in Virginia
.--' siml Soutlnvcstorn.
(Baltimore Sun.)
Mr. George "Blakistone, president of the
Union Trust Company, was in New York
yesterday in connection with the plan of
a. syndicate to acquire upward of 100.000
acres of "coal land in Southwest Virginia
and to build the eld Virginia and South
western and Ohio River and Charleston
railroads.
It is said that the underv/riting,syndi

Notes of Tobacco Trade.
Sales of leaf tobacco for the week closed
with yesterday's breaks. In the aggre
gate about 75,000 pounds were sold, fine
prices being realized for some of the of
ferings. Much of the stock sold now is
corning to market by rail. The ware
housemen declare that there has been no
noteworthy d.cline in the demand for
and the prices of sun-cured tobaccos,
when the stock offered is dry .'and 'sweet
and in good order. Of course, when- the
tobacco -is soft and in poor condition
there is little demand for'it. and prices
are a bit off. For good stock, however.
there has been only the natural fluctua
tions of the market. Sales for the week
have exceeded expectations in quantity.
President Carrington. of the Tobacco
Association of the United States, hopes
scon to name his committee to take up
the matter of securing reliable estimates
of the. acreage and production of tobacco
in the State and in the tbbacco-prpdiicinjj
States generally. The co-operation of the
State and United States Agricultural de
partments will be. sought in the effort
to. make these statistics complete, reli
able, and- of great valuo to leaf tobacco
dealers and the trade jrcnerally.

Not Too Jluclt Tobacco.
. (Blackstone Courier.)
The idea has been suggested to ths
Courier that- it might .be well to advise
the farmers in this section against plant
ing too much tobacco this year, the re
ports that come In being to the effect
that more plant-bed land is being pre
pared than ever known before. The rea
sons given for this suggestion are two
fold. First, there is a chance for over
production; second, and -the most im
portant, the scarcity of labor. ■
