is an odd specimen of human kind. To

NEW YORK, November 19.— (Special.)—
United States Senator Natlian B. Scott,
of "West Virginia, is at the Fifth-Ave
nue Hotel. "I am in the city only to
attend to some personal 'business,'" he
said to-day. "Of course,- as a-good-Re
publican. 1 am an interested observer of
the friendly contest that is going- on
for the speaker-ship of the Fifty-eighth
House of Representatives.. I do not know
how our solid delegation of Republican
members from . West Virginia will stand.
They have taken ■no action as yet But
Mr. Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, is our neigh
bor, and he always comes over the line
into our State to help us with his.oratory
ln our campaigns. I know that we- all
feel under great obligations to him, and
entertain jcreat respect for his ability.
The natural tendency of our delegation
would be to support him for Speaker.
"But I have no right to speak for the
West Virginia members of the House.
They will do whatever may seem to them
wise. So far as I can judge from the
I newspapers. Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, ap
pears to be in the lead, and I suppose
that our delegation may join his col
"But there is one subject upon which
I can speak for West Virginia, as rep
resented in both branches of Congress.
We are all agreed that we want no re
vision of the tariff. The Dinjley law
fuits us right down to the jrround. One
Republican who got scared about the
tariff was Mr. Fose, of Massachusetts.
The result was that his district elected
a Democrat. T uiink that all Republicans
should stand firmly against all assaults
upon protective tariff."
Senator Scott was asked whether he
still favored the nomination of Sena
tor Hanna for the presidency.
"Certainly I do." he replied. "I have
always said that Mr. Hanna would make
an ideal President. But that is because
of my personal admiration for his great
qualities of mind and heart. Every tri
bute that I can pay Mr. Hanna I will
pay. But that docs not detract in the
lt?a'st from my admiration of President
Roosevelt. I have never uttered a word
in opposition to him or to his candidacy."

NEW YORK. November 19.— (Special.)
A corps of clerks in the offices of the
American Cigar Company, of this city,
were working to-day on a schedule that
when completed, will add 5,000 lucky
girls to the 'list of those whose wages
have already been increased by the com
pany. The amount of the increase is
based on an average of 20 per cent, for
each worker affected.
In the 20 per cent, increase that the
Cigar Trust is to " give its employees,
nearly all who will reap^the benefit are
girls. They are employed in factories in
Carnden. Trenton, Philadelphia. Balti

other factories •;' in Virginia, - West Vir

have already received the increase. Those
who have not yet benefited by the com
pany's action will be looked after later.
"We want to do this as quietly as pos

to-day. "We are making money. As fast
as our business increases just so rapidly

The Senate yesterday held the longest
session since the General Assembly con
vened here a week ago. The body did not
adjourn -'for ,the day .until after 1 o'clock,
though for a few moments the dignified
senators were in the hall of the House of
Delegates, engaged in confirming >the
nominations of Governor Montague for
members of tho Corporation Commission.
Lieutenant-Governor Willard called the
body to order at noon, prayer being of
fered by Rev. Dr. George Cooper, of the
First Baptist church. Senator Shands,
of Southampton, and- Senator Whitehead.
of Pittsylvania," were present at. the ses
sion yesterday.
There were a number of bills introduced,
many of them being of the greatest im
portance. The bill of: Senator. Mcllwalne,
of Petersburg, providing for a special
levy of 5 cents on the $100 of property,
to raise a fund for the payment of pen
sions is probably the most important of
the day.
Senator Anderson, of Richmond, -offered
a bill providing the method of selling pub
lic franchises.; The law is proposed under
that section of the new Constitution
.which provides that no franchise shall
be granted by city councils without com
pensation on the part of the company
securing- benefit of the public utilities.
Senator JUcllwaine, of Petersburg, pre
sented the following, which will lay on
the clerk's table for one day:
""Whereas, by reason of the reduction
in the rate of taxation by the constitu
tional- convention the revenues of the
State are insufficient to meet the expenses
of the government, properly administered,
to pay Its indebtedness as it accrues, and,
at the same time, to make proper, pro
vision, for the payment of pensions to dis
abled soldiers, sailors and marines, • n nd
to their widows, tinder the general, acts
of assembly now in force; therefore,
; "Be it resolved by the senate, the house
of delegates concurring, that the com
mittees on finance of the two houses ,be

pare and report a bill, or bills, providing
for the levying of a special tax for pen
sions on all the property in this State,
real and personal, which is subject to
taxation, not exceeding five cents on the
hundred dollars of the assessed value
. Senator Mcllwaine suggested that the
resolution go to the committee on finance
for consultation, : .^-- -
Senator Wickham said he favored the
resolution, but that he saw no reason for
the reference of ; the resolution. It was
clear, and he would support the proposi
The lull was allowed to rest on the
clerk's desk.
The senate concurred in the joint resolu
tion providing for a session of both
branches at 12:30 o'clock to take up the
nominations of the governor for mem
bership on the corporation commission.
Senator Mcllwaine presented the fol
lowing, which was laid on the table:
/Whereas, a' large number of the most
important" sections of the Code' of Vir
ginia have been -amended since the same
went into effect on the first day of Hay,
JSSS; and, ;,
. "Whereas, the adjustment of the exist
ing statutes to the provisions of the pres
ent constitution will require many more
changes, both material and consequential,
in the said Code; and.
"Whereas, it is desirable that the laws
of this State should not only be brought
into harmony as speedily as possible, but
promulgated in such form as to enable
the people to know what these laws are;
and, whereas, it is almost impossible for
those not "learned in the law" to ascer
tain what the law is, although they are
conclusively presumed to know the same;
and, whereas.the great mass of the peo
ple look upon the provisions of the Code
as the embodiment of the law affecting
their rights and remedies; and, whereas,
it. is evident that the Code, as revised,
will be so much of. a patchwork .as to
prove a delusion and .a snare to those
who would rely upon it in matters in
volving their vital interests;
"Therefore, be It resolved by the Senate,
the Houso of Delegates concurring, that,
in addition to the duties assigned to the
several committees of the Senate and of
the Houre of Delegsttes by the joint reso
lution agreed to on the 13th day of No
vember, 1902, the said committees are
hereby instructed to consider all the
sections of the Co&e of Virginia with
amendments thereof, with a view to a
codification of the same, said' committees

Attorney-General Anderson "Will Be
-Assisted, 'by Messrs. Christian &
Christian— What the State ."Will Cnw
' dcrtake; • to x Show — Case '"" Attracts
Widespread Attention.
; ;A.caseof unusual interest will come up
in the United States Circuit Court of Ap
peals at 11 A. M. to-day, when argument
will be heard on an application for. an in
junction restraining the State Board of
Canvassers . from awarding certificates of
election to the Congressmen elected on the
ff.urth day of November in ; and for ;the
State of Virginia.
.; Chief Justice Fuller; of the United States
Supreme Court, has been requested to
come here to sit in the case. Attorney-
General Anderson is one of those makins
this request. , to which no reply had been
received last night. /
This is the; proceeding instituted by^
James H. Hayes, a negro ; lawyer 'of this
city, and John S. Wise, an attorney of
New York, as counsellor William Selden,
William ;H. Anderson and other negroes
of this city, who allege that they' have
been deprived of the right to vote con
trary to the laws of the United States
and of .the State oi Virginia. The case is.
one made up by "the negroes 'of Virginia!
to test the constitutionality of the .new j
suffrage law of. the State, . drafted : by the j
new Constitution. Attorney-General "Wil
liam A. Anderson will be present to re
present the State of Virginia and will
be • assisted in that function by the firm
of Christian & Christian, of this city. "
WTiile the action is brought in the name
of the! negroes ■ mentioned, it is really
a movement by the negroes of Virginia,
who nave subscribed money and employed
the ..-attorneys named with a view to mak
infr a test of the new Constitution and if
possible overthrowing it. As far as the
procedure thus far had indicates, the
petitioners will seek to show that they
have been excluded from suffrage despite
thefact that they have property sufficient
to entitle them to vote. They also raise
a question as to tho legality of the.pro
clamation of the' new organic law, and
attack it generally.-.:
: In the argument the State will under
take to show the; entire constitutionality
of the new organic law, and the right of
the convention ' to proclaim and promul
gate the instrument. It will be shown that
ir. its language the Constitution is valid
and in no way in contravention of the
Constitution of the United States nor of.
the amendments thereto.
It will ba shown that the complainants
had their remedy, if they were unlawfully
refused, registration, had they but chosen
to avail" themselves of the same. It will
be admitted that were the applicant for
registration was refused registration when
he was entitled thereto under any of the
clauses, prescribing conditions therefor, the
fault was in the administration of the
constitutional -provision and not in the
Constitution itself. In order to show in
validity of the Constitution, . it must be
established that the instrument on its face
and by its express terms makes a discrim
ination.on account of race, color or pre
vious condition of servitude. This, it is
believed, cannot be shown." In the event
that the. negroes bringing the action
prove, their contention that they were un
lawfully refused registration, an act of
maladministration only will have been
proved; it will in nowise affect the validity
ef the Constitution itself.
The case "will be watched with wide
spread interest thoughout ' the State and
the entire country, it beins the first at
tempt to overthrow a constitution prescrib
ing educational, property, military service
or understanding, tests as prerequisites to
suffrage. In order to -affect the Constitu
tion Itself, it will' bV recessary for the
petitioners to show- that it discriminates
against them in such a way as to come
in conflict with and contravention of tne
Federal Constitution and the fourteenth
amendment thereto.

NORFOLK, VA., November 19.—(Spe

It "Would. Appear That Local Reme
dies "Would. ■ Be ■■ Best., for Cure of
It would seem at first glance that Ca
tarrh, being a disease of the mucous mem
brane, that salves, sprays, etc.. ijeing ap
plied directly to the membranes of the
nose and throat,- would •be .the most ra*
tional treatment, but this has been prov
en not to De true.
' The mucous membrane Ms made and re
paired from the- blood and catarrh is a
blood disease and any. remedy to make a
permanent cure must action the blood,
and when the blood is purified from rca
tarrhal poison, the- secretions from' the
mucous ' membrane will become natural
and healthy.,
Jn this climate, 'thousands of people
seem scarcely ever free'from some form
of catarrh; it gets better 'at times, but
each, winter becomes! gradually, deeper
seated, and after, a, time the sufferer, res
igns .himself to itfas a necessa.ry evil. ;
' Catarrhal. cures 'are almost as numerous
as catarrh . sufferers, hut are nearly all, so
inconvenient and ineffective as to render
their use a .nuisance nearly as annoying
?.s ,; catarrh . itself; ". anyone . who ha s • used
douches, sprays, 'and "powders, will bear
witness to their inconvenience and failure
to really cure. , ' " „
"^■-Thereare a number of. excellent internal
remedies for V catarrh;-; but "probably the
best and -certainly the -safest is a new
remedy, r composed of Red -Gum. Blood.
Root and similar antiseptic remedies, and
other -valuable catarrh , specifics.
This remedy is in \ tablet form; pleasant
to; the 'taste 'and sold iby ' druggists under
the name of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, and
any ■ one f suffering i from \ catarrh may use
these tablets ;Wi th" absolute assurance that
they j contain- no -cocaine,-'^opiate nor any
poisonous -mineral ■ -

of catarrh ; cure, says : ; "I have sold van
