Tho majesty of tho law has again

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?

The rates of pay offered by these

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- ;

made to reduce the custom's duties
on woolen and worsted goods, they 1

The fraud, the Sham and the hypo- |

forcibly represented by the Lawrence:
report, cannot be continued. The :
Commissioner of Labor states that

The trouble too frequently has been
with the plays themselves, and the

much cheaper.
Richmond is both by location and
prestige a place for good plays, it
?fters a convenient break on the long
jump toward the South and West. The
community Itself and tho surrounding
territory are eager to see tho now
productions, and willing to support
fine acting. Full houses should wol- !

win help Richmond, and Incidentally j
themselves, by furnishing this kind of j

Congratulations to Miss Cora Hlncs,
who carried Julius IClbcl, who ac?
costed her on the street, to the First
Roilce Station! She did just what she j
should have done, and pity .Us that
more cr her six do not do the same!
thine H they did, they would do a
great deal toward rlddtng Richmond
of the tribe who loiter, leer and accost; !
n tribe over whom the authorities!
do not seem to have any control, arid
who Increase every day. 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.

The daya of the ultimate consumerj

timate that he will cease to be a con-'
sunior. In a last mad endeavor to beatj

"I am of the opinion that man can!
lose fiO per cent, of his normal body
weight without uny risk of death or
damage to his health; and I hope to
establish this fact sclentlcally In my

tl.d of beating tho beef trust la noil
without drawbacks. Agostlno warns!
individuals against "h'aphazzard fast-,
Ing" because altiiougli he proceeds
with t!.. strictest scientific care ho has
been "four times on the brink of thoj

imperilled. Such fasilng exceeds the;

aged negro who was teaching his mule
to without food by gradually re-!
duclng the daily ration. On the very;

self-perpetuating, the beast lucohstd-l

Tribute lo Judge Witt.
To the Editor of The Times-Dispatcn: j
Sir.?Having known the lato Judge
Sam writ for fbrty-flva years. 1 de?
sire to say a few words about the
lamented Judge. 1 considered him a j
most Impartial ar?r! upright Judge, a
man of strl l< st Integrity and one of :
the most honorable gentlemen 1 ever I
knew. He was a kind and good man
arid highly thought of by both rlcn
and poor; by those In exalted places
as well as by the humblest citizen.
For a man to have all ihe.se good '.
qualities of heart and heart Is no small
thing, and I desire to recorvj these,
the sincere expression of my kdmlra- ;
tlori and regard for Judge Witt, ]
whose ability as n lawyer, impartiality
as a Judge, and whose good deeds
among the pc-opU. Will long be re- '
membered and cherished by the cltl-,
i aens of Richmond. A FRIEND,

Th< mighty tread of valiant men.
.Whose names and needs Fame safely
keeps;
And in her dream she smiles?ka.l
Weeps. i
Virginia. Wake! Thou slumberest long.'
About thee powera of darkness throng i
And trample In their brutish runt
The jewels of thy heritage.
Cupidity, with Itching hand.
:(a.i loosed tio- portuls of thy land I
To sordid lust. Fur shameful gold
,The rights and lives of mCti are sold.
Ambition stalks with brazen faco
And at the council takes the place
Of ancient right. The, pander raile.
And on the light the beacon falls.

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.?
