One hundred and ?ighty negroes and seventy white men attended the much-heralded insurgent R< publican convention yesterday. Despite .-tren uous efforts on the 'part of the lead era to make It appear that the con? vention was the outgrowth of State? wide -Jlssatisfaction In the it' publican ranks among both the white and colored elements, such a claim was all but routed by the small attendan -j and by the strength of the while representation. Scheduled to open at noon, the con? vention did not begin business until 1 o'clock. At 12:13 o'clock no signs of a white representation were in s'ght when a loadel trolley car emptied a delegation uf sixty-five. Just arrived from Petersburg. To theso were added, by the time the meeting was called to order, a half dozen mere, raising the total white r.pi-. sentatlon to the biblical three scoro and ten. A squad of policemen in charge ?jf a sergeant from headquarters stool guard at the entrance and in var'ous parts of the auditorium, but nothing in the nature of a disturbance de? veloped Within an hour and half from tho time that J. R. Pollard as temporary chairman called the con? vention to order, the meeting was over. Virginia's allegiance to Taft :iad been discredited, and four delega'.^s iit-large had been elected with in? structions to vote for none othir than Theodore Roosevelt. Xnvcotnb In State rhalnniu. J. M. Newcomb. of Petersburg, as announced by the caucus Wredn Lday right, was elected State chaiunan without orposit'on.

"It builds up the system like nothing e'.s* Willi and I will try to get all my ne.ghbors ar.d friends to use thl? God ser.t blessing to women. I know wha.t I am talking about, too. for I have used Cardul for a number of year?, as such times when a woman needs some thing to strengthen her system. Tl".e result always was that I had no pains and an .3asy time. So many won? dered why. and I told them It was Car dui that did it." All women, young and old, need a Ionic at cartain times. Especially when they are w?ak, tired, run-down, worn-oat, no matter from what cause. Cardul, the Woman's Tonic, is the best tonic for wom?n to take, because '.ts action Is upon the womanly organs. As has often been s-iid, Cardui builds strength where and wh;n women most need it. It helps to strengthen t>.e womanly constitution, prevents or re? lieves pa'.n. brings back health.

The ?tJam ro'.l-r was brought Into use in tho Jlrst minute of the conven? tion. J. R.

"I protest against su*h a proceeding as unparliamentary,?' objected a col? ored man in the front row, who had a fighting Jaw. and looked as if he m-ailt to enfor-..- his rights. 'This ? body has not yet accepted the rcsolu ; lion contained In the call which has Ju^t been read, and no election Is In ord.r until this convention has passed upon it." A moment of Irresolution followed, and was broken by a delegate on th-. platform, wl-.o e-i'.ed for a viva voce vote on the nominating motion. The I convention hall shook with a mighty ? : "aye," and the solitary exponent of parliamentary law sit down crushed j and ovi-rsvhclmed "by the party roller. It was never again called into play. "Coterie of Ofllclal Parasites." A resolutions committee, composed of w. h. c. Brown, w" J Rahtly, J.

After denouncing the Lily White manage? ment of Virginia Republicanism, the resolution indorsed Roosevelt in tho following words: "We believe that the great unrest In national affairs threatens tho over? throw of Republican management, and that the one man* who can bring vic? tory out of the present light is that great figure, who, whether in stress of battle or contest In civic reform, stands pre-eminent among men. Wo declare for Theodore Roosevelt as the man best fitted to lead the party to victory and pledge ourselves to work for his nomination at the Chicago con? vention and Iiis election at the polls " One White Speaker. The convention proper opened with prayer by Rev. Moses M. Lake. D. D.. of Richmond. J. R, Pollard, of this city, and Dr. A. A.

It is to be itoped that he will manage to put In a week or two at Newport, for Instance. How? ever, he has planned to be on the go during the whole of the two months he is In America, and If ho manages to have any time left over for pleas? uring ho will break his own record, which Is saying a great deal: for he is undoubtedly a "hustler." and people on this side will recognize In him ,\ kindred spirit. Merely to summarize the var'ous lields of activity in which he stren? uously engages gives rise to wonder? ment .that one man can cover so mucll ground.
