(Special.)— When Virginians meet hero one
of tho questions which arc inevitables top
ics of discussion among them is the Mar
tin-Montaguo SenaJr'rial contest, which 5a
now- beginning to tako shape. ! though the
actual fight is a. good many ;.. months. off.
yet. The discussion takes a. very wido
r.-ujjre, from the possiblo} chances of the
rival 5 candidates to the respective claims
of the two gentlemen' upon the suffrage
of the people for tho position..
Tq-<2ay a. group of." Virginians? were
Ktandin;? in front of tbo Metropolitan 110-
Icl, dbcubsinpr the qutstlon, when ony of
'■them. Mr. M. M. M«-?rmn<ii:ke, of West
moreland, said:; "1 am aii; admirer of
Governor Motilaßu «■;'», l«ut if. ho succeeds
in wjfnnini? out in this fight!/ ho will kuc
crwJ in doiiiK what no Governor of the
State 3ias dono sinco tho civil- war—sur

Jt should lie that the; Governorship has
In !h<: past been a graveyard for jjolitica]
ambition' is ■■more than, I Can tell, but it
lias proved no in wry ease, liven Fitz
hu:;U lice, with his ancestry and his war
.record, "couldn't win after he had. been
Governor. .Tlicro js another fact upon
which 1 have tliought a.great degl, and
that is that no Governor of tlvi State who
was altcrward elected to the Senate from
1835; to the beginning of the civil war, hold
the position to the ond of liis -term. I
■h'av-Q no means of accouutlng for it, but it
Ik true."
This opens i\p a wide field of specula
tion in collection with : : the contest. Why
has the Govemorsliip ended the political
careers of so many men who had t-trong
.«nouph -hol'l on Uicuheafts ; ;of the people
to be given the Jirsl position. within their
pil't? And .will these same things mili
tate against the success of Mr. • Montague?
Can Governor Montague, with his unde
niably strong 1 personality, and the enthu
siastic support' of; his; friends, break thy'
f;eemJn^ bands of f;tto which have been
thcuiidoing of so many of hiCpoiitical
predecessors? These, arc questions which
probably will not be, answered— and no
onn; knows how they will !<c answered
then— until the votes arc counted.'
AIVtUALLEL.
But ovpji the history of llie past, does
not necessarily maljo ii so in the future.
In the oa^e of the Vice- Presidency of the
iJ:jitctl States, thero is a parallel. It has
for years and years been a. graveyard:
for political .ambition. So safely has a.
man been regarded: as buried,; politically,
Jn it, that when the astutu Tom Platt, of
Kcw York, fearing, that tlio virile- and
strenuous Roosevelt would gut the upper
hand of him in Xew York, wanted to
rllrninal?. the cowboy, statosmanffrom tho
political equation, he .put him int. •> the
Vjcc-Pr-esidency. But therein Platt'.reck
oned without his host. 'Fate was against
hint. The ball that laid McKinl<y low
undid all the plans of Mr. Platt, and
moved tlio' man"' lib' touglit io shelve up
ip tlio first position in the equation. And
it seeni3 to be almost as asfate t.hat
all tho". precedents of three-quarters' of a
century will bo broken, and tha.t. a man
elected as Vice-Presjdent will agani, by
the direct vote of his party, bo nomi
natc-rl for the Presidency.
Th-vre is no reckoning the. ways of po
litics, and whether precedent will prevail
nr not in tho Virginia. /.gubernatorial! cb'u-;
test: remains to be seen.
