HOPCLKSS EFFORT MADE TO GET

Out "What , the" President "Wants—
Asrnc-»v and Bowden Xot Disposed
to Act Hastily— "l Air "White". Move
Con<inues to Give -Vir^'iniiL Repub-
licans Much Anxiety.
There are still two Republican nominees
for Congress in/the Third District. They
are B. ,W. Edwards, of. West Point, and
"W.E.Talley,. known as "Parson" Talley,
both .nominated by the rival factions at
West Point on Wednesday. There was
talk of a compromise yesterday, and a
rumor that one of the rival candidates
would bo withdrawn, or that both would
be pulled down.
A reporter for the Dlspatcn yesterday
interviewed Marshal Morgan Treat, the
leader of one of the factions, ami Mr.
Edgar Allan, Jr., the head of the other.
Both gentlemen express willingness to
I compromise on any fair proposition, but
their claims as to which is entitled to
the larger representation in the district
and city committees, and as to which had
control of the .convention, leaves little
hope that they will get together. .
Conferred in Vain. _
The two gentlemen conferred, before
and after the convention, but did uotget
together. "Mr. Allan claimed that his fac
tion had at least twenty-six of the dele
gates to West Point, and that they were
entitled to a certain proportion of the
oemmittee-s. He had nothing to ask for
hjm-seJf, he said and was .interested
only for the sake of party' harmony.
He -was willing to malce any fair con-_
cessions. He denied that there was any
negotiations in progress looking to • a
settlement of the differences and the re
tirement- of the Congressional candiate or
the chairman of. his local faction.
■/.What Mr. Treat Holds.
Mr. Treat declared that the Allan wing
was in a. minority at West Point, and
that the "ins."; as they are known, ab
solutely controlled the convention:: The
Goochland contesting delegation; he 'said,'
had not complied with' trie plan of organi
zation and had no credentials, hence they
were not : and could not properly be placed
on the roll. He, too. expressed _ the
greatest willingness to-see-the two] fac
tions get together, and declared .himself
in favor "of any fair solution of the fac
tional differences. ■] !. ; - : ...
Altogether, there seems- very little pro
bability of a reconciliation of the warring
factions. The Democrats do not regard ]
the candidacy of either Mr. Edwards, or
Mr. - Talley seriously. They, consider their
candidacy merely a 1a 1 form, and do not an
ticipate any real effort to elect by the
Republicans. ■ .
THE "LILY-WHITE" MOVE.
Virgrinin. Repnblicnns Trying- to Find
"...;; " . -What President Wants.
•WASHINGTON, D. C. September 18.—
(Special.)— North Carolina and Alabama
ha\ing excluded the negro from further
{Participation in Republican councils, and
relegated him to the position of doing the
voting only,- and South Carolina and
other Southern States preparing to do the
same' thing, Virginia Republicans are
.watching what is golng-to be the outcome
of the half-way promises that the negro
in that State, too, is to be removed to a
distance, :Not much has been 'done in
that direction to date, and apparently the
leaders -are watching, developments else
where, arid trying to find out what the
President wants. Everything indicates to
them that he is with Senator Pritchard
and the Alabama Republicans, , and that
lie wants a white man's Republican party
in the South, but the. old-timers, like
Messrs. Agnew and B.owden. arejiot dis
posed to rush quickly into ; new" moves,
and particularly when riot thoroughly
posted as to the wishes and desires of the
great head of their party. -In other ways,
such as putting up candidates for Con
gress, the "organization is complying with
Executive wishes, but in that case no
doubt existed as to the President's real
intentions. • - '. N : » ;.
. SECOND DISTRICT SITUATION.
It is represented here that. the situation
in the Second District continues to ; an
noy, the organization in respect to ,a v
congressional' nomination. - Leaders of; the :

that candidate. will;be furnished by them!
On lthe'l other" hand, persistent- informa-"

claimed that advicps :have.been receive^
from the Republican Congressional Com
mittee that the committee could not well
do otherwise than recognize' a . ;Wise
nominee after its action of:two years ago,
and at other times. "Atempts to find if
this is literally true have not" been; suc

district ought :to know just how they ;

RICHMOND, VA,
GREAT-BRITAIN BACKS :;:>/
UP SECRETARY HAY
The Government Sends a Similar
'"'Protest to the German Foreign
- Office at Berlin.
BERLIN, - September IS.— The German
foreign office lias 'received -a •;'•' note
from the British government inviting some
action* on the part of the [signatories? of
the treaty, of Berlin of IS7S, ] regarding
Roumania's treatment of the Jews.? The
British note is shorter than that of the
United States on the same; subject; but
it 1 - the same end. -..; It is assumed
here that Great Britain ;. knew of the
United States' step beforehand, and acted
in support thereof. ' The United states'
action is regarded as being quite within
her rights in seeking theassistarice of the
signatories in preventing an influx' of in
digent immigrants, which s is recognized
as a substantial grievance. - These two
notes will result in an interchange of
views between the . Powers as to what
.action is feasible. In. the meantime, ], it
is expected that Roumania-' will V take,
cognizance of the United States' protest
and defend her case upon 'her own initia
tive before the signatories.
The. foregoing represents the- views of
of the German government, butthe press.
knowing nothing of the British riote v
seems to consider .the United States' auc
tion as "simply, chivalrous, and as' not
likely to result in. practical measures.
The Vos'sische Zeitung publishes a. let
ter' from Bucharest, ' Roumania, saying
that ] emigration continues, and that; the
Roumanian government! in passing the
law on the subject, promised, to adopt
administrative regulations that would
mitigate ; harshness, .but. these : promises,'
the correspondent affirms, were -not "ful
filled!' 7 . ; ' -■■/ •"•'-■ : ■ . - ■.:' •

from Bucharest, Roumania, dated Sun
day, September 14th,- a. : correspondent of
the Daily Express says . the . emigration
fever among, the Jews i of Roumania. still
continues,"' and that withini the last three
month .'4,000 Jews have left the couritry.
country. , : .'.
: To-night, . the. correspondent .goes on,
a party .. of ; 350 left, for- Canada V arid the
United States, and small parties. of .Jews
leave the!"la-rger towns' of the country al
most daily. Although the reason given
by the emigrants 'for ; leaving is -their in
ability to obtain ] work, . <lie" Jews steadily
refuse to .take up farm labor.'. Proof ■ of
this is found in the fact that -vslthin- the
last three yeai*s Roumania .has' paid for
outside Bulgarian • labor something ; like
53,000,000, which might have gone to the
Jews if they.would. only turn their hands
to the light labor of .'harvesting. -
Bulgarian laborers, the correspondent
concludes, are well housed and excellent
ly fed while working on Roumanian
farms. ' '** ' " '
