Vlrglnln, In common wlth tho otlior forty-four States of tho Unlon, wlll io day voto for presldentlal electors nnd for thn number of members of the Houso of Rcpresrntatlves to whlch each Stato Is cntltled. lt is cono'eded untversolly that IVrglnla's twelve electoral votes wlll be glven to Parker and Davls, and that nlno If not all ten of tho congressmen to whclh thls Stato Is entltled will ho ro elected. The only doubtful dlstrlct ls tho Ninth. In tho Third Congresslonal Dlstrlct thero aro four or flve nomlnal candldates for Congress, but tho re.electlon of Cap? tain John Lamb for hls flfth succeaslvc term Is not doubted by any one. The Republican opposltlon is badly dlvlded. Mr. Edgar Allan. Jr., recognized by Stato Chalrman Agnew, ns tho rogular can? dldato, ls opposed ln hls own party. by Mr. George A. Hanson, of tho Richmond bar, who Is supported by many of the beat-known and most Influentlnl Repub? llcans. Bosldes theso two, thero ls u negro candldato In the fleld In the person of J. B. Johnson, of Manchester. Tho entlre negro voto of the dlstrlct is inslg nlficnnt, and a number of those regls? tered aro supportlng Mr. Hanson and oth? ers supportlng Mr. Allan, so that Johnson can hope for but a small vote. Ho was a member of the convention that noml? nated Mr. Hanson nnd was accused by the other faction of making a deal wlth the Hanson fnrces, whlch he denlcd In a publlshed card announclng that He would support Mr. Hanson. A little later It wns announced that he was on the official ballot as an independent Repub? lican candldate. Silent Fall of Ballots. Now that tho campalgn of orntory in which President Roosevelt has boen ful somely lauded by one party and tinspar Ingly denounced by tho other, ls ended, the real battle with the silent falllng of ballots wlll begin. All over, the State at hunrlse to-day tho polls will bo opened nt every preclnct and voting will contlnue until sunset. Then wlll como the counU of ballots nnd the hurrlcd llgurlng up of results. In every Stato of the Unlon slmllnr scenes wlll be enacted. While the vote east In thls clty wlll be small. compared wlth that ln 1904. be? foro the olectorato wna reduced, It wlll probably record a larger proportlon of ?Ihe reglstered voto than ln 1900. Dosplto tho small Interest Ih the congresslonal flght, there ls great Interest ln tho presldentlal contest, nnd though tlie result ls nssured, ln Vlrglnla. the Repub? llcans wlll try hard to mnke. a re spectablo showing for tho natlonal candl_ date.s. The rush of persons worklng In thls clty to thoir homes has begun and hun drcda have gono to voto to-day. Nearly nll the force In tho Audltor's offlce and tho State tron-surer's offlce left yester? day for thelr homes Students at the col legea here who aro reglstered In other States havo gono to thelr homa to voto.

The exact number of those resldlng ln other States, who'went home could hot bo as? certalned nt ithe colleges yesterday.
