REPUBLICAN MAY
LOSE CERTIFICATE
Mustard's Name Sent In Differ?
ently Kroni Counties of
. His District.
MANY ERRORS IN RETURNS
School Officials Leave for Nor?
folk to Attend Big Con?
vention.
Errors found by the State Board of
Canvassers In the election returns rrom
Tazcwcll and Buchanan countlea will
In all probabil'ty cos. S. I', /dustard,
the successful Republican candidate, his
certificate of election to tho Houao of
Uclesates. In this event a contest be?
fore tho House la practically certuln.
Many mistakes were found In the re?
turns when they were ca nvaasod yes?
terday at tho office of the Secretary of
tho Commonwealth. But In no other
instance did these nffect the results.
It looked actually for one Senator, whose
name bad been sent In itr different
form from aeparate counties, und he
also would have lost but for the fact
ihut bis opponent's name wus similarly
treated.
The stutc Board of Canvassers met
yesterday morning, with only three
members present?A t lorn ey-Gene rul
Samuel W. Williams, Secretary of the
Commonwealth B. O. Jumcs and Auditor!
S. It. Donohoo. The Governor hud .not
not yot returned from Norfolk, while
Treasurer A. W. Harmon was engaged
In other duties. Because of their ab
Bonce the board adjourned to meet
again Saturday morning to take up Uiu
Xazewoll and Buchanan matter before
0 full body, although there is little
doubt that tho Democrat will get tho
certificate.
Names Different.
In making out the returns, the elec?
tion commissioners for one of these
counties stated that Samuel Mustard
received so many votes, while for the
other It wus reported that S. P. Mus?
tard was voted for. Adding these to?
tals together, there would have been
n largo majority for Mustard over his
Democratic opponent, W. P. Payne.
? The board could tlnd no authority for
Investigating and determining ques?
tions of Identity, and the members felt
that they could not take It for granted
that Samuel Mustard and S. P. Mustard
were the same man. To attempt to
settle a question of this sort, it was
urgucd, would make u dangerous preco- j
dent. Nor could any authority be found
for sending the returns back for cor?
rection. As a matter of fact. 11 Is pre?
sumed that they are correct as they
stand, and that Mr. Mustard tiled his
name. In tho two counties in different
form, tn which case the commissioners
could do nothing save to record the
votes as they appeared on the official
ballot. It appears to have been Mr.
Mustard's mlstukc.
It would appear unlikely that Mr.
Payne will occupy his seat long, ehould
he be given the certificate. Attorney
Gcndral Williams said that were he a
member of the. House of Delegates, und
thuulil evidence be produced to t>how
that Samuel Mustard and 8. P. Mustard
were cue and the same, he would vote
to seat him. But to get the seat It 's
probable that the man who made the
mistake must bring a contest.
School People Go to Norfolk.
All the officials of the Department of
Public Instruction and those who work

In alluding to this rumor Mr. Wil?

that hu was too much engaged in his
present labors to waste time in correct?
ing erroneous impressions. Mr. Wil?
liams took time, however, to compli?
ment the workers upon their w.ry grat?
ifying success. He was followed upon
tho platform by Rev. H. D. C. Maclach

won and assured them of the very ear?
nest sympathy and support of the min?
isters and congrogntions of Richmond.

izens' Committee, was complimented;

Washington, November 2".?Speaker
Champ Clark to-day declared that he
had devoted tho last three years chief?
ly to getting tho Mouse Democrats to?
gether and holding them together, and
that after seventeen years of factional
fighting the Democrats "are united,
and, by tho blessings of God, will re?
main so."
"I did not do it all by a long shot,"
he added. "I had lots of help, and
every Democrat who participated in
that troublesome, laudable work de?
serves his full share of the honor.
Where there was only despair In
Democratic hearts, there Is high hope
now."
In this way the titular head of the
Democratic lowor house of Congress
made Indirect roply to criticisms of
former presidential candidate William
.r. Bryan as to tho speakerahlp no
longer carrying tho leadership of the
House- Mr; Clark referred to the great
Importance of unity and wisdom among
the Democrats to draw out voters not
belonging to the Democratic party.
"Tho most important feature of the
extraordinary session of Congress from
I a political standpoint," said he, "was
I the fact that wo pulled together.

"The trend of public opinion is to?
ward the Democrats. President Taft'*
long trip seems to have left things in
statu quo."
The Speaker said tho recent elections

Canada. Thoro is not a fact In the
universe on which to base such a slan?
der. I never at any time or place

language, but as the Canadians do not
seem to wnnt that, there Is an end
of It."
