OBIilGATKTX OF COXTRACT.
Speaker Byrd has reconsldercd antl
withclrawn his blll to club the Rlch
mond, Frederlcksburg und Potomac
Rallroad, and ln so dolng ho has acted
' wlrcly.
The Constitution of Virginia pro?
vides Jthat no law shall embrace more
fftian one object. whlrh ahall be ex
Ipressed in its title.
Speaker Byrd lntroduced a bill "to
requlre all railroad companiea whose
Siarfcers requlre Buch companles to
-tako up or sot down paasengora to
fulfil tho ternis of auch charter, and
to prcscribe penaltle-s." Thls blll was
olincd especlally at thc Richmond,
Frederlcksburg and Potomac Railroad,
ond Its object was not, as oxpressed ]wl
to requlre that road "to
sel down passengers" as
its charter. lf thc com
*comply with thls antl
, its fast traln Servlce
impulrrd as to call forth
om Its patrone. Speaker
Byrd has publlcly admltted tl-.at his
bill was designed to affect the l"red
erickaburg road only: that Its object
was r.eit to eompel the road to comply
wlth its charter rcqulremonta, but to
dlscard its present charter, whlch ex
prnpts it from taxation. and to take out
ti new',charter, urider which it would
be aubject to taxes imposed upon other
roads.
?li is manifest," sold Mr. Byrd in a
rcc-ini intervlew, "that the Rlchmond,
l-'i-i dcricksburg and Potomac cannot do
?VI...I its charter, granted aoventy
flve ye-ars ago, roqulroa It to do; never?
theless. lt insists upbn It's tax cxcinp
tlon. My blll puts It squarely up to
the road: 'dqmply wlth your charter or
pay taxe -.' If thia hlll becdmes a laiv,
iln- Rlchmond Frede-rlcksbtjrg and Po
tomac will bo obliged to surrender tho
charter, go lo ths Corporation Com?
misslon for n now charter. and when
It gets thi* new charter lt wlll have
tu pay taxes llke- every other road ln
the State. lf tho manngcoment of the
Hlchmond Frederlcksburg and Poto?
mac is wlse ii wlll ii.i thls wiUiout be?
ing ciubbed lnto lt."
Mr.' Byrd further said tliat the Fred?
erlcksburg road could not be compe|led
by direct cnactment to give up ita
.-right of exemption from taxatlon, "aa
tlie courts. have held that the rlghts
and di)tn"vj grtt-ilted or imposed by a
charter conHtltutc- a contraet, and a
State cannot enact a law -whlch' wouhl
? -impair tbe obligatlon of a contraet."
Therefore he proposed to destroy tho
State's obligation of contraet by in
dlrect actlon; or, to employ hls own
phraae, to club the company lnto sur
n ndering a chartered privllege which
tl.o State voluntarlly granted.
It la a maiiui of law that no one
can eSo Indlrectly wliat he cannot do
dlrectly. Tho purpose of the pro
.posecl plan of Speaker Byrd is avow
i-dly to aceornpllsh by indlrectlon what
tho State'cannot do dlrectly, Whether
? by dlrectlon or indlrectlon, it ls in
consdstent wlth the good falth of the
State?its most precloua asset?to car?
ry out Speaker Byrd's plan. Neither
?club, blg stlck nor subterfuge would
be permlsslble. Virginia hns had qulto
enough of "forclblo read just ment,"
and any act of tho Legislature wliloli
seeks to impair the obligatlon of a
Stato contraet wlll invarlably do
iniiri; harm, both morally and uiatcr
lally, than could posslbly be conipon
Bated for by iMcreascd revenue thus
derived.

Ko auch iconoclast has appeared be?

grlm Theodore Sutro. of tho National
German Alllance. Tlie alllance ls op?

Sutio appor.rr-d before thc House
Judlclary Commlttee as Its envoy.
"vVurrnlng up lnto a splendld cllmax,
hc passlonately declared that whlnkey

Sutro, "have bcen commlttod by

TIIE COLOIIED VOTE.
'Most of thc negroes of the North,"
,-s the Omaha Bee, "use their ballotf
clllgently." Tho Bce means, of
irsc. that they use them to help the
publican party, and that is true.
e same facts that have made the
uth "solld" have Inevltably yoked
: negroes to Republlcan Interests.
t ns tho negroes scatter, taking their
oblem wlth them, this yoke as In
Itably loosens. Tho tlme comei
ally when tho dark-skinned mar
tertalns a doubt of thc whltc friend
io ls so klnd to hlm in the year
eccdlng an election.
Thut development of affectlonate ln
rest ln tho colored brother whlch
imates thc bosom of the Republlcan
.rty so systomatlcally every four
lafs has agaln become notlccablf.
ie press begins to blossom wlth dls
issions about his vote. Secretary
ift referred to hlm almost wlth emo
on at Kansas City as "an unfortun
;e, struggllng, down-trodden race."
ore Interesting stlll, the Senate Com
tttee on Mllltary Affairs has voted
i make ne> report on tlie Brownsvllk
looting affair "until after tlio elec
on." It is known that that report
ill havo a distlr.ct effeet on the
ptlon or colored voters at the polls
ext November. lt is believed that
iat effeet will not bo favorable to the
epubllcan party. Tlio importance o[
olding lt up for another year or two
thus obvlous.
The negro vote is decidedly worth

THE VlltMI.MA IMI.OTS.
Thc way to sottlo thc caso of tho
Virginia plluts aml thelr clnlm for
additional compensatlon ls woll and
fairly stated by nn artle-le ln the Nor?
folk Liindtnnrk. which lndlentes a solu
tlon of the dimotilty.
Tho Lantlmark snys:
"Why nhould not tho rates to be
charged by the members of the Vlr?
glnln. l'll.'ls' Assoclatlon for compul
aory pilotage of forelgn vessels bo
tlxed by the Stato Corporation Com
missiOn, a.? proposed In n blll Intro
iluced by Delegate Barrett, of Newport

"The pllots are enlltlcel to n falr and
reasonabie compensntlon?no more. no
less. More would Injure the commerce
ot tho Virginia ports; less would de
stroy the Virginia Pllots' Assoclatlon;
and elther of those results would bo a
calamtty. The Corporation Commls?
sion is much better litteel for the cora
plicated anel teclinlcal buslness of flx
Ing proper rntea for pilotage than la
the Leglslature, just as thp Corpora?
tion Commisslon ls better fltted for
supervlslng rallroad rates. Thero Is
eve-ry reason to nssume that the com?
misslon would hold the scales without
prejuilfce ln the matter and protect
tbo Interests of the ports. Tho Con
itltutlon of Vlrglnln seems to have
provlded for cases llke that of thc
pllots ln the following passage (sec?
tlon l.r>6, subsoctlon c):
"The' (corporation) 'commisslon
tnay be vestod witli such additional
powers, antl charged wlth such otlier
dutlea (not lnconsistent with thia Con?
stltutlon) as mny be prescrlbed by
law, in connection with the' vlsitatlon,
regulatlon or control of corporations,
or wlth the prescrlblng antl enforclng
"f rates and charges to be observed ln
the conduct of any buslness whero the
State haa the right to prescrlbe the
rates and charges in connectlon thcre
wlth.' etc." i
Mention was mnde ln these columns
several days ago that an Eplscopal
chureh In New York would try cxperl
meiits in "Christlan psychology" during
Lent. Thls ls tho method of Dr. Wor
cester, of Emmanuel Chureh, Boston,
which consists ln curlng mental dls
orders by applylng the principles of
Chrlstlanlty. Tlie patient professes
whatever slns or folllos may have been
the causo of hls present mental condl?
tlon. Then, through hypnotic Influ?
ence and healthful suggestlon, Dr. Wor
cester seeks to replace the emotlons of
foar, anger and ,worry with ihe Chris?
tlan sentlmonts of love, joy and peace.
The Rev. ltobert McDonald, pastor
of thc Washlngton Avenue Baptlst
Cliurch, Brooklyn, has lnvestigated Dr.
Wbrcester.'s method, and believes In It.
Not to be outdone by the Eplscopallans,
he announced to hls congrcgation on
Sunday night that he would Introduce

Edltor of Thc Tlmes-Dispatch:
Slr,?So impressed am I wlth thc
raphl decrease of game ln our State,
especlally wlld waterfowl. that, wlth
your permission, I will glve a few ol
my ideas as to whereln our game
laws could bo improved.
Flrst. I thlnk wo need a system ol
traveilng game wardons on tlie sanu
Plan as the United States rovenue ofll
cor servlce. It would not renulre many
of these traveilng wardens, foruhej
would naturally lnsplre more feur tluir
the local offlcers, and tho uncertnintj
of tholr appcarnnce would have a. teil
dency to make the would-be vlolatoi
more careful. At the head of the sys?
tem should bo a State' gamo commis
Bloner, who would have charge of ul
matters pertalnlng to gamo ln tht
State.
A license tax o;'.' 52 on guns would
augmented by llnes for game law vlo
lations anel recelpvs from non
resldent llcenses, bring in suillclen
revenue to pay tho salarles of thi
game cummissloner and tho wardens
1 wm unalterably opposed to thc sah
of gamo. One market hunter doc
