MONTAGUE RAPS 1
STATE MACHINE Tells South Richmond Voters of Modern Political Ten? dencies. ANALYZES MARTIN LETTERSj - Former Governor Says He Never Reposed on Breast of Mr. Byrd. Severe criticism of the "maehlno" . and Us leaders, with analyses of tho | public records of senators Martin and Swanson. formed Ce basis for the speich of former Governor Montague last night before the citizens of South Richmond. The meeting was held In the courthouse. Mr Montague first sketched the mo .i rn movement! looking to partici? pation by the people in their govern? ment, unj commended the tendency toward cutting down the obstructions between the ollicers and the people. The result of a machine system of gov? ernment, he said. Is rampant graft. The appeal is to "stand by ;? our friends." The young mun is told that he cannot rise save by joining its ranks, and the oflice holders are in? formed that they must adhere to its standards. Leaders In such a system were denominated by Mr. Montague as L "the night riders of modern politic*." j, Scea Promise lu Future. Machines, he continued, are the friends of entrenched monopoly, and are sustained either by the interests or by taxes upon the salaries of the Office holders. Yet, he ^thought, the future Is not without hope. Leaders are arising in the peopleSi interest, 1;ri i .? :long w hom he placed WoodrOW Wilson, "the hope of the Democracy in America." He declared that the party could be cleansed from the in? side, and that this should be the method. Learning that Senator Swanson says there Ik no machine in Virginia, the former Governor said that - man who believed that was too bad or too igno? rant to vote faying a good deal of attention to the record ot the junior Senator, Mr. Mon? tague said that there had been an In? crease in salaries during his admin? istration of four yean of 65 per cent., or $33.S,S91.07, over that of ills own j (Mr. Montague's). The spesch of Mr. Swanson was characterized as "so much Vombasl that it will toppel of lib own weight." He again reviewed tho condition of the treasury when he retired, and when his successor went out of office. Recalling the fact that the State convention had failed to indorse his own administration, Mr. Montagu.- said he cared nothing for It, mentioning It to show the malignity of the "machine" against those who da oppose it. .N<it on Uyrd'B Hreast. He himself, be continued, had never scratched a Democratic ballot. He de? nied the statement ot Speaker Byrd that lie had been warmed on the breast of the "riig" a- d then stung lt. "I have never." he said, "'been on the breast of Mr. Byra or any other ma < hine man, nor have 1 ever stung a 1 man wh helped me. I do. not like to have a man whose Judgment is me? chanical to critlc'ze my Democracy." The organization lights Democrats ?who disagree with It more than it lights Republicans, according to Gov? ernor Montague. When he was nomi? nated, he mid, Senators Martin and Swanson went to Europe, returning a few days before the election, and Mr. Bwani?n made a few speeches where they would do no good to the party. Turning ids attention to Mr. Flood, hp cr'tlclzed the lattor's West Point f-pcicti as pruise of the machine to the discredit of Washington. Jeffer? son, Madison and Marshall. Was Tucker Nominated! The speaker laid down tho proposi? tion that it is not sufficient that elec? tions be honest, but that the people must believe them honest Methods once used against the negroes are now employed^ /he said, against Democrats who oppose. tire machine. "J do not Fay 1 believe, it." he announced, "but there are. thousands of Democrat? who do believe that Tucker was nominated as Governor." He took up the Thompson and Glas? gow letters one by one. analyzing t'nem to the same effect as has Mr. .Jones, although throwing new light on hem in some respects. He ?ald railroad money was distributed not through party channels, but by Thompson end his friends. He laid down the proposition that the least known man cannot be ol"-~:od to the Senate over the best known man save by little known methods Two things to considsr in i buying a hat? the feel of it and I the looks of it. When you try on one of ourl hats and the mirror tells you | you look as well as you pos- ; sibly can, arid it's comfortable , on your head, then it's the hat | for you.

The Berry Specials. $2 Upwards, Hats for boys and girls, too. The proof, he contended, shows that Senator Martin solicited for Repre? sentative Flood, notwithstanding t?1p Senator's denial. The Cumpbcll Fee. Reading the Indorsements of Jttdge C. J. Campbell's fee by Martin, Swan son und Flood in the Amherst will case, Mr. Montague said that such men do not possess the sense of propriety nnd decency which would qualify them for positions as representatives in Con? gress. Judge Cavipbell, he said, could not make $0,000 in nine years prac? ticing law. Closing, he discussed labor matters. He defended Mr. Glass's record. ;f;er saying his personal relations with the Lynchburg candidate had been Strained for several years. Recalling the fiuhl over the employers' liability bill, lie I referred to a pamphlet written by s I representative of labor who had' worked for the measure; and in which ! Martin nnd Swanson are recorded as hostile to 'the proposition. Mr. Glass, he said, voted nnd worked for the bill In the Constitutional Convention and in the Senate. Ho paid a tribute to Mr. Jones ns a champion of the people.

Tile communication also contained another strike threat, concluding as follows: "Until equality Is recognized, justice cannot manifest itself, und should your attitude be persisted in. such trouble as may result will not be the unions' desire, but the socking of yourself and those whoso Interests you repre? sent. There are too many people teaching details of conduct who do not even understand first principles." The International oflicers remained in lonference until a late hour, though Chairman Kramer announced that bo fell assured no derisive action would be taken until some future day.

The Ash Street wharf will be used until some arrange? ment can bo marie for repairs to tho dock. !

Steel is the I youngest son of Mr. George Steel, a former merchant of this j city. He was born and raised in Richmond, and has been an I active participant in and an ? earnest supporter of everything i tending to the advancement of his native city, at the same time giving freely of his means to benevolent and charitable ob? jects. He commenced life as a "printer's devil" with the late Henry K. Lily son, but soon de? termined to study dentistry, which he did by his own efforts working for newspapers as mail? ing cierk and reporter at night and in a dental office in the day to accomplish his object. Immediately on his gradua? tion he opened an office of his own, and has been a successful practitioner of dentistry ever since. Monroe Ward honored him with a seat in the City Council, where his labors were bo much appreciated that upon a re-election he was returned at the head of the ticket. While serving his second term he was nominated and elected to the House of Delegate1, wlu-re he took an a< live part from the start, and was assigned to four Dr. George B. Steel. important committees, viz.: Asylums and Prisons; Banks, Currency and Commerce; Re? trenchment and Economy, and Library. He enjoys the unique distinction of having been al ways present and on time both in the House and committee meetings. He was also frequent? ly called to the Speaker's chair, where he presided with dignity and grace. Finding at the close of the first session that he was unable longer to give Iiis undivided time and attention to legislative duties, he declined to offer for re-election, being, as he then stated, unwilling to do anything "half way," thoroughness in everything he undertakes being his motto. At every election, however, since that time he has been urged by his fellow-citizens to run again, but would not con? sent until now, when he finds he can once more render faithful service to his constituents by devoting his whole time, if neces? sary, to their interests. Dr. Steel is a Democrat, and has never voted any other ticket. He is very extensively and fav? orably known in the city and State and beyond. He is an enthusiastic Mas>on, being a member of two lodges, Royal Arch Chapter .and Knights Templar, and is an officer in each body. His experience in legislative affairs will greatly aid hint in the discharge of his duties, and if elected will make an honest, faithful and efficient representative. 1 By expert car men at lowest prices.

[Special to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.] Stauriton, Va_, September 6.?Sena? tor Martin to-night apoke nearly two hours to a sympathetic nudlonce ot about 300 persona, who liberally ap? plauded the points he made against Mr. Jones. The speech covered about the usual ground of his previous speeches, except possibly In the phras? ing. Ho Bald that Jones was the rank? ing Democratlo member of the House, but that ho had never accomplished anything In tho moro than twenty years of his sorvlco. When tho House was reorganized at tho oxtra session, the only honor conferred on Jones was that lie was allowed, on account of his seniority, to choose his seat with? out drawing for It, and he was made chairman of the unimportant Commit? tee of Insular Affairs. He analyzed some of nla votes with Aldrlch tbut Jones attacked, and he claimed they were right. He charged Jones with suppressing the fact that these votes were all on amendments, and that on tho final vote on t.he bill, as a whole, ho voted against it. He had made mistakes, he said, but Jones had not had sense enough to find them. Ho ha* voted against every protective tariff bill since he has bten In Congress. The Thompson letters he discussed briefly. He said the only Interpre? tation that can bo put on them was that he was doing a patriotic oorvlco to tho people of Virginia, for which he has no apologies to make He said ho had. time and again, gone to Now York to. appeal to railroad presidents for money to maintain white supremacy, and he knew It was not being used for Sunday school pur? poses, but to carry the electton for the Democrats to maintain white su? premacy, and he charged that Jones was using all he could get In the same way.
