secured large amounts for othor
.States.
When tho meeting was called to
order there wore by actual count 049
persons In tho theatre, of whom twelve
were women. A band played "Dixie"
as the speakers tiled upon the stage,
and then James E. Heath, in a capital
hpcech. Introduced "tho candidate."
Mr. Heath harked back to the days
of the Fltzhugh Lee struggle, and de?
clared that the defeat' of that great
Virginian by Mr. Martin for the United
States Senate was nothing less than
a crime, especially when General Lee
was u national tigure and Mr. Martin
"an unknown."
Trlology Fares Roughly.
Mr. Heath paid his earnest respects
to the "ring," the "boss" and the "ma
chine;" indeed. Chat Illustrious ttjlology
." fared roughly at the hands of the
speakers.. III? allusion to Woodrow
Wilson as the New Jersey Insurgent,
who had swept clean the mosquito
state, set tho crowd a-howl. Every one
seemed to be a friend or Wilson's, al
. though as between Jones and Martin
there was a division.
But one person interrupted the
spcukcrs. E. A. BllUsoly asked Mr,
Jones to tell how Senator Martin voted
on the bill to elect United States Sen?
ators by direct vote of the people. Mr.
Jones did so by saying that he (Jones)
had always favored such a mode of
election, but that only, recently had
the senior Senator "trimmed his sails."
Mr. BllUsoly amused those near him
by groaning loudly whenever Senator
Martin's name was mentioned.
Finally Mr. Jones made a plea for
si United States Senator from Tide?
water, lie declared that this section
had not had n representative In the
higher branch of Congress since the
time of tho Civil War. when Hon. It.
M. T. Hunter adorned that illustrious
body.
Some Honest, Worthy .Man.
Mr. Jones did not say that he was
the man. but insisted that some "hon?
est; intelligent and worthy man from
this section should succeed Senator
Martin in 1913." In conclusion, he said;
"I do not permit myself te> entertain
it doubt as to what the result will be
:f yon" set yourself resolutely lb the
task. You have before you the exam?
ples of the seemingly unequal contest
mad. by Robert M. La Kollette, d Pro?
gressive Republican Senator from Wis?
consin, n:ivl Woodrow Wilson, the Pro?
gressive Democratic Governor of New
Jersey.
'?When Senator RaFollotlc made his
? ght for tin Senate against the Repub?
lican machine of his State." he said.
? his best fr'ends regarded it as hope?
less. Every daily newspaper was
against hi sr. save only two, and the
machine purchased the editorial space
:1n iOt) other papers
"Out of eleven dailies In Milwaukee,
only one supported him; The railroad
corporations joined hands with the ?
machine, and not only furnished the
means with which to debauch the
press, but contributed all the money
that could be used m the purchase of j
ir.'Jlvli*:al votes. T<-e Republican ad?
ministration, too. employed its Fed?
eral patronage to the sane? end. The
nominal party organization lent itselt*
to the will of the machine. ?
"What was the rtftslt." LaFollette
carried every on^ of the seventy-erne
counties, and In forty-two of them he
carried every district., Out of a total
of 1 ".'j ?reciticts? he carried 1.929 and
ifod r.'.s opponent In thirteen, and in
thtrty^eight his opponent did hot re
? vive a. r?te.

are willing to tight for it.
The victory achieved by Woodrow
Wil>on over the machine of his State,
backed ef it was by the corporations
which flourish there as nowl\pro else,
is of too recent occurrence to need to

Roanoke Mayor Must Show
Cause Why He Should Not Be
Removed From Office.
[Spci rial to the Times-Dispatch.]
Uoanoke. Va., March ' ::'.<.?In a
lengthy report handed in at midnight
to-night, the special grand jury calls
on Mayor Joel II. Cutchln to show
why he should not !>e removed from
ofllce, charging him with collusion with
persons of ill repute and with having
accepted gifts of various kinds from
these people. The report further
charges Police Sergeant Lemon with
the same offense. Following the pre?
sentation of the it-port Judge Staples
announced that he would ask the Gov?
ernor to appoint a .Judge to preside in
the case ol Mayor Cut'hin, which will
he taken up at the n< xt term of court.
Tlii- text of the report does not come
as a surprise; since the line of exami?
nation followed by the Jury had been
talked of for some time.
Mayor Cutchln has hold office for
many years'. lie is sixty-one vears
old.
The jury returned three Indictments
ugalnst Harry Myers, one charging
him with the lurce-ny of S10. another
for contempt of court, and another for
felony.
Mayor Outchin would give out no
statement to-night, since ho was not
a>vare of the report haying been pre?
sented until informed by a newspaper
man.

ins; out: "Abbatemaggio Is a eaiuViTin?
tor."
The informer, recognizing a trick
to impair his testimony, raised his voce
above the chorus. yelUng:
"I never said that Cortino's brother
was a Camorrist."
?? The confusion continued and the
president was compelled to suspend the
sitting.
The policy of the accused is to catch
Abbatemaggio in contradictions or un?
truths, if only in secondary matters,
and so discredit his whole story.
To tho question of the president of
the court as to whether he suffered
from epilepsy, Abbatemaggio replied
j In the negative.
"Here is a military medical certifi?
cate," said President Bianchi, "stating
that you left thj army after thrto at?
tacks of epilepsy."
"Then I did It purposely to be sent
home from the army," said the witness.
The lawyers for the defense Jumped
to their feet shouting:
"Then you deceived tho military,
and you are now trying to deceive the
Judicial authorities."
The severity with which the presi?
dent selected disputed points for ex?
planation, the prisoners believe, was
an ornen in their behalf.

?????? ILO 01 POISON
Contagious Blood Poison usually begins with a tiny sore or piniple as
the only outward evidence of its presence. But in a short while its many
symptoms begin to make their unwelcome appearance. The mouth and
throat ulcerate, itching rashes appear on the body, the hair comes out easily,
brown splotches appear on the limbs, etc. So highly contagious is the dis?
ease that it is sometimes communicated from one person to another by the
use of the same toilet articles or handling the clothes of an infected person.
S. S. S. has been curing Contagious Blood Poison for more than forty years.
It goes right down into the circulation, and removes every particle of thq
poi.soa While curing the disease S. S. S. adds richness aud nourishing
powers to the blood, and a person who Is cured by the use of S. S. S. will fine1
that every portion of the system has been benefited by the treatment. ,S. S. S
.cures So perfectly that there is never any return of the old symptoms; i:
drives the poison completely out by purifying the blood, which is the onlj
safe and sure way to treat the disease. Write for our Home Treatment Pool

It you du not have it properly
tuned and cared for at right inter?
vals.
You may mean to have it done,
but are most liable to forget, and
then you may not always be aware
that the instrument needs atten?

range with us to care for your
piano, to watch it, keep it in tune
and sec that everything is kept in
good order.

Excellent Company In Powerful Play.
Most of us went to the Academy of
Music last night expecting to see one
of our favurlto stars- in one of her
charming but somewhat light drawing
room comedo roles. Instead, we t>aw
Miss Annie Russell in an exceedJngly
emotlonal part in one of the moat grip?
ping and enthralling plays that we
have had in years, and a company of
people who were so good that even
Miss Russell's finished work hardly
"stood out" amidst the general excel?
lence of their individual performances.
In "Gordon's Wife," Bayard Velller
has written a play that contains more
dramatic situations, more climaxes,
better Uno?, more lifelike, natural
characters than one play in a hundred
that we have to sit through, but It Is
no more a comedy, as it Is billed, than
is "A Pool There Was." Indeed, it is
much nearer a tragedy than a comedy.
I True, thore are moments of fun. lines
that call for laughter fand get It), but
that Is true also of "The Elon and the
Mouse" and of "The Man of the Hour,"
both of which are brought to mind by
"Gordon's Wife,"'and, to my mind, this
Is as "big" a play as cither of them.
In u. limited space it is impossible
to give a connected story of the play.
It deal* with modern, practical, Ameri?
can politics in a thoroughly modern,
practical manner, and with a*situation
that might easily arise in any State
In the Union. And with nil of Us poli?
ties and campaigning, there Is a "heart,
interest'' story between husband and
wife? that holds the audience in tense
and thrilling silence.
Miss Russell, ua the .wife, gave an
excellent 'performance; sho was natural
and easy, as she Is alway-.t, but. mor->
than that, she displayed an emotional
power, ah earnestness nnd depth that
surprised most of us, and added great?
ly to our opinion of her ability. But
Miss Russell was far from being the
one admirable "member of the com?
pany. She was billed as the star, and

Gem OH Burner.
The writer yesterday saw a new In?
vention which, when introduced, can?
not help but revolutionise the methods
of heating cook and other stoves. It
Is ihe Gem Oil Burner, exhibited by
BarnlRsel, of |he Wllloughby Company,
and what It will do Is surprising. Tlie
principle of the burner ie that com?
mon kerosene or coal oil is converted
Into gas, which mixes with 90 per cent,
of sir and 10 per cent, of carbon gas,
passing through the burner and pro?
ducing a long, superheated blue fin.mo
of Intense heat, free from smoke and
odor, as well as free from dust and
ashes arising from the use of wood or
coal.
Mr. Bamhisel is located at 72o Hast
Main Street, live doors west of Hotel
Stumpf, for a few days, representing
the Gem OH Burner Company, of Wll?
loughby. O., where he will be glad to
exhibit the invention to any one. It
may be put in any stove without
changing or damaging the latter in
the least, nnd after It Is In will heat
the largest cook stove or ran ere suffi?
ciently for family cooking for $1.00
per rnohth. It has a decided advantage
over wood, coal or illuminating gas,
especially the great advantage of econ?
omy, with none of the disadvantages
of wood or coal, and is just what is
needed for comfort and efficiency. The
company is soon to put these hurnbrs
in the hands of agents, who will retail
them at about $12 npleco. To got
them started in this vicinity, one may
buy direct from the manufacturer, free
on board cars at WHloughby, for half
that'sum for the next fow days, dur?
ing which time an agent will bo ap?
pointed. Whether one wishes to buy
or not, it is wdrth one's while to visit
the store to so? this ingenious Inven?
tion*
