Va., late United States district attorney,
states: that: his father does not. contem
plate: making "xthe: wrace for Congress
against Congressman W. F. Rhea, in the
Ninth district; this i fall. It: is well known
that the : masses in the; Republican party
in: the district have looked', upon Judge
Alderson as the proper person to under r
take -tho task of redeeming 'the. district
to the Republicans; but Judge Alderson
realizes; that it would be a -fierce, battle
and would: probably -. avail him nothing;
since the .democrats of the district were
neverj more : unanimous : and enthusiastic
in their support of a manVthan they now
are in stipport^of Representative Rhea,
who his twice led his party: to \ victory,
against the efforts of the late". General
James A: Walker, one of the most cour
ageous meti that: ever entered, a political
battle. Judge Alderson js just now get
ting a start after presuming his law prac^
tice at Wise, Va., and" he: .^^sVthat^it
would be a great sacrifice/on his part*- to
give up a good: law business for .several
months of. what _would,- in: all. probability,
be afruitless chase" for office. -.-1 : . - -"■
that Judge Alderson: Is out

Lucian : , Gleaves, " of TV'y theville. | • Mr. Lind^
sey is a profound student of .matters.per
taining to government: and . .would; not
