The office requires? First?An honest and intelligent man. second?A man whose experience with accounting and book? keeping enables him to know when accounts arc properly audited .uid books properly kept. Third?A man with sufficient firmness to compel settlements by all collectors of State revenue, at the times, and in the manner, icquired by law, without fear, favor or affection. Fourth?A man who has paid sufficient attention to the State's finances to know the present condition and foresee the probable fu? ture needs, so that his reports may be of value to the people and of real aid to the General Assembly. Fifth?A man who recognizes the most pressing present need of the people, economy in government expenses, and if possible a reduction, certainly no increase, of the present burden of taxation, and will use his knowledge in pointing out where and how the de? sired end may be attained. Sixth?A man who will be courteous to all who have business in the office. I have known Mr. Charles A. Johnston, of Christiansburg, since his boyhood, and believe there is no man in the State who more fully possesses the qualifications for the office than he does. His enemies?they are few?-do not question his honesty or in? telligence. Those who know him best will testify most strongly in his favor on the first and sixth points named. He makes no pre? tenses, uses no blarney, and usually "gets there." Over thirty years' experience as a store boy, accountant, sales? man and.partner in a successful general store in a thriving town lias given him the second qualification and done much towards the third. For more than six years he has been the adviser and guide of the County Treasurer of his county. Never have the affairs of that office been better managed. When he became interested in behalf of a new Treasurer things were in bad shape, warrants in arrear, taxes uncollected, accounts badly kept. I feel safe in saying that no Treasurer's office in the State is now in better shape than that of Montgomery. This example and his known character give assurance that he possesses the third qualification. In the last three sessions of the.General Assembly he was on ihe Finance Committee of the House. There was no member on it, except the chairman, who took more interest in the affairs of that committee than Mr. Johnston, and I believe the chairman will 'say (hat no member was more helpful to him. He is as far from being a spendthrift in public or private affairs as any man can be who recognizes the difference between stinginess and economy, between liberality and profligacy. With this experience and these traits of character, it is safe to say that he# possesses the fourth?and fifth requisites. I earnestly hope the General Assembly will, in Mr. Johnston, give the State one of the best Auditors it has ever had. January 9, 1912. ARTHUR A. PHLEGAR. Life Insurance Companies They Are Closely Observing Public Health Conditions An\ examining physician for one ol thu prominent Life Insurance Companies, in an interview on the subject, made the astonishing 6tatemcnt that the reason why so many applicants for Insurance are rejected is because kidney trouble is so common to the American people, and the large majority of applicant*, do nut even suspect that they have the disease. HesL.tcs that, judging from his own experience and .reports from druggist.-* who arc constantly in direct touch with the public, there is one preparation thai has probably been more successful in relieving and curing these diseases- than any remedy known. The mild and heal? ing influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is soon realized. It stands the highest for its remarkable record of cures. We find that Swamp-Root is strictly an herbal compound, and we would ad? vise our readers who (eel in need of such a remedy to give it a trial.

DECISIONS BY SUPM COURI Washington, January ?.?The grtpl of the Interstate Commerce Commis-j slon over the commerce of the cou..tryl was lightened to-day through U jenes of decisions by the Supreme Court. The principle wus laid down that shippers Buttering from civil inj.irieci from railroads mum go to tho O0inmlB-| elon before rubbing into the courts for relief. The paramount authority of the com-' mission In reasonable rate-making was upheld by the courfs decision that! the Federal District Court of Minne? sota was wrong In preventing the en? forcement of the commission's reduced rates on lumber in the Pacific couet. Oregon and Montana points to St.. Paul, Omaha r.nd Chicago. The legislative field touching the ac-| ceptancc of goods by railrouda for In? terstate shipments was marked forever] as Federal territory, and StatCE wcrel warned to ltccp off. The supremacy over State law." of similar Import of the Federal "hours-' of-sarvlce-law," the enforcement of which is conlidcd to the commission, was upheld. Lumber nutes. The tight over the lumber rater, had been the most exhaustive. Tho com? mission's rates eradicated substantial? ly all the Increase In rates, proposed by railroads from tho Northwest in 190S. After a lengthy consideration of the attack upon tho commission's ord? er. Justice Laraar concluded that the court could not say the order was made because of the effect of the advances on the lumber Industry, as suggested by the railroads, nor that there was no evidence to support the commie- j slon's rates. The court laid down the principles that railroad dividends were not a eolo basis for Judging the reasonableness of rates, but that conditions as a whole were to be taken Into consideration. The fact that the commission allowed a higher rate to Omaha than to St. Paul w-ua. said to be Justified by pre? vious rate distinction between the cities by the railroads themselves. The vallaity of the Hepburn rate law was not involved. Much attention was attructed to Justice McKenna's opinions, annulling the North Carolina law. which requir? ed rallroade to recelvc goods for In? terstate transportation, whether 'they had published rates for the proposed , shipment or not. Justice McKcnna ? refer. _d to the interstate commerce Iaw6 which forbade railroads to "en? gage" In transportation of goods until they had a fixed published rate. "If tho carrier obeys the State law, he Incurs the penalty of thc Federal law," said llie Justice. "If he obeys the Federal law, he incur:! the pen? alty of tho State law. Manifestly one authority must be paramount and : when It speaks thc other must be si- I lent" lie silenced the State law.
