Denounces "Machine." and
Wants No Votes That "Can
Be Delivered."
The following announcement of Con?
gressman Carter Glass's candidacy for
the United States Senate, "released for
publication in morning papers of Tues?
day;*! has been recel%'ed by The Times
Dispatch from C. D. llamner, secre?
tary to Mr. Glass:
Washington, January 2.",.?Represen?
tative Carter' Gloss, of the .Sixth Vir?
ginia District, will be a candidate for
the United States senatorial nomina?
tion at the September primary for the
term for which the lato Major .lohn
W. Daniel was elected by the General
Assembly a year ago, and which was
vacated by the latter's death last June.
Mr. Glass, in connection with his pub?
lic denunciation of the Norfolk pri?
mary frauds on November 27 last, an?
nounced that lie would very probably
bo a candidate for the Senate to suc?
ceed his late townsman, who so long
had been honored by the State. "But
Is there much encouragement." asked
Mr. Glasn at that time, "for anybody
not Identified with machine methods
to be a candidate for anything In the
State under the chaotic conditions
created by the recent decisions of the
Norfolk and Portsmouth courts? They
have swept away even the attenuated
safeguards of the primary which exist?
ing statutes provide, and leave us In
a situation full of peril to the Integ?
rity of the Democratic party and the
good order of tho State."
Avows Ilia Purposo.
Several days ago tho Virginia Court
of Appeals virtually overthrew the
lower court decisions which had pro?
nounced unconstitutional the statutory
penalties against frauds at primary
elections: and to-day Mr. Glass deli
nltely avowed his purpose to Olfer for
the senatorial nomination.
"It is my intention." said the Sixth
District Congressman. *".o no a candi?
date for the full term 'ri the Senate to
which Senator Daniel was elected by
the Virginia General Assembly a year
ago, and whfuh will be vacant alter
March 4 next by reasua of Major
Daniels death. The Governor has
made an appointmejjjL for the remain?
ing part of Senator Daniel's unaxplred
term, which ends Maren o, P.tll, and,
as I have, linderst'))d, he will nwoit
the decision of the Democratic voters
of Ylrginiu, as it shall b'.- rendered at
a primary election, before making a
further Interim appointment. This will
leave the position fairly open to every
Virginia Democrat who may aspire to
succeed Major Daniel in the Senate,
without prejudice to any.
"1 have not especially desired to be
a candidate for the Senate. Although
Urged some time ago by tome strong
j men of the State to announce myselt
' for the place, my letter files attest the
j fact that I have consistently preferred
to support some one else for the otltce,
and have tendered my services without
reservation to other gentlemen for
whom 1 have felt that 1 could wage a
more effective fight than for myself.
? However, being amply apprised of
certain incidents preceding, attending
and following the illness and death of
the late senior Senator, I have said
from the first that I was resolved that
the people of Virginia should have an
opportunity to decide for themselves
whom they desire to represent them in
the Senate of the United States in tho
stead of Major Daniel. I have said if
no one better entitled to aspire to the
place, or better equipped to discharge
its functions, or better circumstanced
for a successful contest, would offer,
I Intended to be a candidate for the
honor before, the people at a Demo
I cratie primary, to be held under party
auspices; and now, in pursuance ol
that determination, I make this public
I announcement of my purpose,
j "Virginia's representation in the Sen?
ate of the United States should be de?
cided by the people of the State by
affirmative action, and not by prema?
ture negotiation, sanctioned or con?
firmed by any political interest, which
arbitrarily, if not impudently, excludes
from consideration every man not Iden?
tified with a factional machine. I have
no misconception about my merits or
my capabilities. They are moderate
enough. But 1 have some degree ol
conlldence in my sense of public pro?
priety, and it Is my belief that the Vir?
ginia senatorship should not lightly
I be regarded as a trophy of any man
or exclusive set of men, to be handed
out indifferently ns the reward of eager
and early importunity, or in requital
of any personal or 'stand-together'
service rendered in interparty strife.
It is a position that typifies the very
sovereignty of the State. It belongs
to the people of Virgjnia, and I see
no reason in this case why they should
not be naked to dispose of it. in their
own way. rather than acquiesce quietly
In a system of factional aggrandize?

"It has come to my knowledge that
in some quarters objection is already
being urged to my candidacy for the
Senate on account of my antagonism to
the saloon tralllc In liquor. My posi?
tion on this question has not varied a
hair's breadth for a quarter of a cen?
tury. 1 have always been hostile to
the open suloon. This fact was not
regarded as a dlsqualitication when I
was elected to the Virginia Senate, or
subsequently, when I was chosen a
member of the Constitutional Conven?
tion, nor has it ever been urged
against me at any time during the
nine years I have represented my dis?
trict as a Democrat in Congress. There
is no earthly reason why it should be
projected now. This issue should be
submitted to the people for their de?
cision, apart from any man's candidacy
for any office;, but I would never be
content to secure any man's vote for
public place under a misconception or
my attitude on any question that lie
might honestly think is involved in
my candidacy. Hence this reference to
