Unfortunately for the worke J.??. ua weil as for the II Mean party, the Bureau of Labor found no such favorable conditions. Instead ..f the tariff protecting the woolen and worsted mill operativ,? against the pauper labor of Europe, was ascertained that the textUo :i.the. chief beneficiaries of bur protective system, had displaced the native American mill workers by ; la ing them in competition with re? cent Immigrants oc low standards frpm Southern and Eastern Europe.

On the other hand I i1; com? panies while exploiting the Wagb earner have simultaneously rubbed the: consumer by raising, through the bid of the tariff, the price ,,f clothing. j In order to make the circle full and complete, they also, by means of their i swollen, tariff-derived profits, have' iloatcd watered stock of their com? panies and disposed of It to tile In- ; vesting public. When a suggestion Is j made to reduce the custom's duties on woolen and worsted goods, they 1 hold up their hands In dismay ana 1 have "conservative'' Congressmen make I long constitutional arguments against | interference with these stock Issues on the ground that they are "vested ?. interests."

Miss Hlnes'3 course ealied for somo little courage, btu she disposed of the case In a most womanly manner when she turn- ' ed her unwelcome escort over to the police Instead of freezing him with a look "r hurrying on. When she i ??wore nut a warrant for Julius K'btl ; she adopted preventive measure that i will deter a good many of the masher kind from accosting women upon the, BtrCets of Richmond. If only some l more of her kind will do as she did,' the city will he much better off. Not the least significant point In this I case is the fad that Miss Hlr.es whs standing a? Blghth and liro.id Streets ! T|tat particular place is the Imme? morial preserve of the genus mash2r. rhero iliey assemble 'n convention every day and every night, and the woman who passes lhat way has oft. a J to run a gauntlet of meaning smiles .".nd insulting stares. There the mash-; eis of Richmond loiter. sec-kink': whbhi they may accost and entice. ' There are to be found the young tel- > lows who, without visible means of support, flount their flashy apparel.! On many nights they practically obstruct (he streets for several! blockt. They go about their, only business with little molesta? tion. Even small girls In Knee frocks arc not secure from their evil atten? tions. The masher plague ought to e broken up. The police can do a great deal by strict and unrelenting vigi? lance, but a few more Miss lllneses can come nearer exterminating the I prdsittc tribe. ( i.\m mim, Tili: CO.XSOIER.

HARVEY CLARKK Judge Samuel B. Witt Judge Samuel R. Witt, for more than twenty years presiding over the! Hustings Court of Richmond, died at! the Hot .Springs on Friday, aged sixty one year.-,. He hud tor months . e n 111 of a complication of diseases, and for some wevka small hope of his recovery has. been warranted by the developments of the euae. Prior to! his elevation to the bench. Judge Witt j was for several years an attorney for' Commonwealth, and prior thereto had been a member of the House ?l Dele Kates. His record and ltie universal! testimony of his associates accord in| commending h's judicial service and! his Integrity and fidelity. It la rare that a jurist possesses .;.e same combination of judicial ability! and wide popularity, but Sam VV'tt, as his thousands of friends refei'rod to him. combined both. A delightful! companion, charming raconteur and genial ussoMute. widely known for ids! bonhom'c, he knew no friends or foc-s j when he ascended the bench and was | a stern and dignified official, yet with- j at kindly and considerate. Possessing, the embonpoint of a Jolly friar, l.ts appearance did not belle him, for hai way a good fellow In any company, In the sense that he enjoyed ami pro? mpted good fellowship. No mar. w.i.i fonder of il guod story and few could tell one with better effect. While prob? ably not entitled to bo classed as a great Jurist, he was a line criminal court Judge and a man of consider? able erudition, both In the domain of law and of general literature. Big hearted and tender, ho was sympa? thetic as well as Just and was gener? ous and kindly and lovable. He had his faults, of course, but those who knew htm best admired and appre? ciated him most and mlnlm'zed his defects. His death will cause persona! sorrow to thousands who knew him and welcomed bis appearance In any group. Though rarely equipped by temperament and disposition for po? litical life, his life work In the main lay along lines separated therefrom, and In deft-rnnce to ?.hc ethics of his profession and his Judicial post, he held aloof therefrom, lie had been ef? fective and successful whenever In his earlier life lie aspired to elective of? fice. As a public speaker he war, graceful and eloquent and appealed to the enthusiasm of his hearers.? Danville Register. 1 Judge Samuel R. Witt who died at Hot Springs yesterday, was an ablu Jurist. For many years ho presided [ over the Hustings Court of Richmond I in a manner that won him eminent distinction. He was essentially tin, judicial temperament?calm, fair, fear? less and conscientious. His too. I the alert, penetrating, and well poised I mind; ami above all, his the earnest I industrious, zealous, consecration to 1 the behests of an Important pnhl'c ! station. Certainly Judge Witt's record on tho bench extending back more I than two decades, and uninterrupted I throughout that time, entitles h'm to bo held In grateful memory by tho people whom ho served, and tho citi? zenship of tho entire State. Considered apart from his dls Itlnguished professional attainments I and enviable public career. It may be said we believe In all truth that few nun In the State attracted anil held a larger circle of friends than trie ; now dead Richmond Jurist. II" was lovable and much beloved; and so. because being a warm-hearted, gener? ous, high-minded gentleman. He radiated the kindly feeling. His presence alone seemed to generate good will and pleasant mood and happy sentiment He bore with hljn always that gentle courtesy wh'eh Is I horn of good breeding and noble in? stinct and love of fellow man. Thun he captivated those with whom he came In contact, and held them as his devoted friends by many hundred fold.
