TUE LEGISLATOR IS TUB MAN.
In his teccnt epistle to the South!
Carolinians, severely censuring thcim
lor the shameful political conditions]
now existing in that State, Senator
Benjamin Ryan Tillmah hammered on!
a point which the people of every'
Slate ought over to keep In mind. With)
reference 16 the two gubernatorial
candidates who have wrought tho Pal
petto State up to the highest fever of
political feeling he said:
'One word In conclusion, nnd the
most important word Of all. There are
nit . .:. tho State who believe If, Judge
Jones is not elected that the State
will go to the dogs. There are others!
equally honest and patriotic who lie- j
ilev< that it Blease Is nut elected the
reform movement and principles <t|
stood for will be destroyed. Roth are.
wrong. The fabric of our government]
is hot built 0:1 such a flimsy founda?
tion, but it is of vital importance?and.
i say tiiis with all solemnity of which!
I am capable?that the Legislature to.
be elected this year Is bit more import
ante than it- tilling t:;. Governor's of?
fice. If we have brave, tr?i men. who'
are honest and not to be browbeaten J
or brlbi I or seduced into betraying]
their constituent?, no bad Governor j
can do us any irreparable injury, and]
without their, no good Governor can do|
ir. h good. So i implore my fellow-1
citizens to see. to it that tho very best'
men In each county are sent to the1
House of Representatives and the
Senate. Then, whether Blease or Jones'
Is elected, we will be safe."
That Is the very wisest sort of coun-i
sei and it cannot be re pouted too much.]
If tlie legislative branch is composed I
of vicious men, tho hands of n good j
executive are tied; if the executive is
vicious, the good Legislature can tie
his hands. Under our present system,
the executive can not do very much to
enlarge the welfare of the people, for
tho legislators make the laws. The
power of the executive in legislation
is negative; he can chick a bad law,
1-ut heo cannot pass n good one. I f j
every Governor couid adopt the policy]
of Woodrow Wilson and assume re-!
BOnsVbility In initiating legislation and'
pushing It throtigh, the power and the
Importanco of tho State chief executive
would be greatly Increased, nnd the
common lot of tho people improved:
but, as It Is, the test wo can do Is to
fleet tho best legislators obtainable.
Too often the people, fall Into the com?
mon error of believing that a legisla?
tor Is a man Of little Importance, and
that any old kind of man will do. Too
often the people elect Incompetent
men of narrow vision, instead of fee
ir.s to It that the very best men avail
able aro entered and elected.
The vlco of our political system In
Virginia is that the people are negli?
gent of their welfare in electing their
legislators, for all too many members
of the last General Assembly were in
ifTiclent legislators. A mediocre Leg?
islature moanS*"mediocre legislation. If
the people of the .Old Dominion w< re
ut much aroused to their civic duty
when electing their legislators as they
are when electing their GoVernOrsj the
people would bO vastly better off and
the State would prosper and progress
The legislator is of mor,? potential

A KE.VllTEXISfi BISECTION.
The Unionist victory in West Man?
chester, whereby a minority of 415
was turned Into a majority of 1,292.
eomlng as it did upon the heels of
stv.ral by-elections in which the!
Liberals lost heavily, has heartened \
the Unionists tremendously. Ami well J
it may have. The London Times is |
exultant and confidently predicts j
an early downfall of the government, j
For these reasons, which, it sa?, em- j
Vhasize the significance of the triumph,
it comes at a time when all their
(the government's i principal meas?
ures have not only been submitted to
Parliament, bat carried past their
second reading and so placed lit a
condition to ripen under the Parlia?
ment act; nnd it comes us an emphatic
condemnation. both of their past
achievement and of their present pro?
gram. It is not a result that can be
explained away or attributed to ac?
Tfie tight, resumes the Tl;rieg. was
all along the line; and the outcome,
in tho words of the victorious can?
didate, Is, llrst and foremost, "a vic?
tory against the government.' It
shows that the government are rapid?
ly losing their hold on their followers
in the country precisely as recent di?
visions have shown that they nre
losing their hold on their majority
in the House of Commons, and sound
reasons they nre. it mum be admit?
The truth Is. however, that, consid?
ering the unnatural coalition through
which alone tho government has been
enabled to retain power, and the So?
cialist and demagogic measures it has
stood for, and in some instances se?
cured the*passage of, the wonder Is
that It has not fallen long ago. The

tlie government's Socialistic program
has disgusted many loyal and con?
scientious Liberals even. The rhlef

A SIGNIFICANT ANNOUNCEMENT. 1
Probnbly no other movement has I
suffered more from Its friend? and
advocates than has tho cause of bank- 1
Ihg and currency reform. The most
recent Incubus laid upon it luis been
the association of tho name of cx-svn
at'or Aldrlch with the mensures of re?
form recommended by tho National
Monetary Commission which completed '
Its work last January. Because of the I
well-known political nnd financial ?tWl- 1
i iatlon of the former Senator from!
, Rhode Island, a large part of the bust- j
ncsg and banking world, although!
anxious to secure much needed bank
'. ing legislation. has been Inclined
j naturally to look askance at any pro- j
pbsal which carries his endorsement.1
On the other hand, equally as large a
! number und probably a more inlluen- i
tlal group, has claimed that the Na?
tional Monetary Commission plan is
admirable and worthy of acceptation.
They contend tli.it ex-Senat?r Aldrlch's
connection with the reforms advocated
has go significance and ridicule their
colleagues because Of th. ir fear of a

As a consequence, we may expect, as a

EVERY VIRGINIAN'S DUTY.
From Cold Harbor Precinct, Hanover
County, came one of the most encour?
aging contributions The Times-Dis?
patch has yet received for tho national
Democratic campaign fund. Only four
of the subscriptions were moro than a
dollar?several of them were under a
dollar: but there were twenty-seven
names on the list.
If every Democrat In Virginia, back?
ing tip his faith and his desire with
works, would do ns well as these loyal
Hanoverians. the Stale would have
good cause to be proud of Itself in this
battle between the people and privilege.
an<i tho party's sinews of war would
be greatly multiplied and strength-;
Large subscriptions are heartily,
welcome a* long as they are given in
a spirit of true devotion to Demodm-'
tic principle's, but it is the number;
rather than the amount that will sIlt-!
liify most to the world.

Now Is the. season when tanned and
healthy folks are drifting hack to tho!
city, bringing tokens of the ?ood they
have reaped from a brief vacation at
the shore or 'n the mountains. Often
enough the benetlta of such outings
seem out of all proportion to the act?
ual time spent in recreation. There
seems to be something tonic almost In
the change of mental attitude wrought
by a short respite from the work and
worry of everyday life. It seems to
make little difference In what place
a man chooses to pass his holiday so
long as be forgets the humdrum pro?
cession of the days in rest. The
blessed relief of for ,\ moment freeing
tho mltld and body from the pressing
needs of life, and sliding through some
hours of calm and unharassed leisure
is enough to restore vigor and fresh?
ness and a kindlier outlook upon
people and tilings.
Probably the mere getting away from
the usual and the expected and the
monotonous makes for a keener per?
ception of life, as if the Photographie'

and restored to its first sensitiveness.

EXTRACT FROM THE NOVEL OF THE FUTURE.
By John T. McCutcheon.
rCbrrrliht: 1013: Er John T. McCutoheoji. 1
The hour at lint had coma. Ono. million spectators thronged tho vast grand stand Intent to see Roderl-k
Trevanlan, tho Demon BIrdinan, soar Aloft In hie flight from I.ob Angeles to lx>ndon. Kvrry he>nrt In that great
concourse, beat In a muffled prayer that the prlzo of $1,000,000 would fall to tho daring aorophtle, for 10 him It
meant not only wealth and honor but & bride nn woll. Gulnavere do Scadsworth, tho only daughter of Alexander
do 8cad8worth. ntVe Aleo Sk&ttwert. htad bluahlngly consented to be) hla bride If he came down Bafely, otherwise
the match was Off, as the reader may surmise.
Let us say a word a'hout Miss da ?cadaworth before tho Intereat In the atory becomes too Intense. She
was beautiful beyond the dreams of ayarlco. Her father counted hie wealth In untold millions; that Is, they
wero untold to tho assessor, but oven *it that he echeduled noarly $100,000, and that would make him a multi?
millionaire ton tlir.oo over.
Let us now return tc our hero, j Roderick Treranlan. As the moment for his departure approached ha
bado farewell to Oulnevere. A te>ar gltm-encd in one of her eyes.
"I am ea^er to go; I am eager to no." murmured Roderick, gazing Into her upturned orbs. "Every min?
ute I wnlt delays our wedding Just so nxuny minutes longer. Farewell, Guinevere, be of good cheer." And so
saying he strode over to his winged sky skimmer.
Neither Roderick nor Guinevere noticed a e>.rk. handsome man hidden behind a neighboring; oak. It wna
none other than Cyril Pettingiii, who bad sworn to wed Aloxunder do Scadworth'n daughter. In his hand ho
held a bottle of knockout drops. In dlr-s-t violation of the Pure Pood Uw. Me hated Roderick Trevnnlan with
a deep hatred.
We left our hero striding toward his aeroplane. A smile, of ?-or.fllence was on his msnly visage and his
stout leather doublet set off a figure, vfbrant with life nnd strength. He was 11 < handaOme as a clothing ad,
Unsuspecting treachery, ho turned to wave hla thanks to the plaudlting crowds. At tr.at moment Cyril Pettln
gill crept out from behind the tree and spoke to an lnnocor.t bystunder.
"Give this glass of wine to Roderick Trevanlan and I will give you a bag of g'>; ;." a mom?nt later he
saw the intrepid Blrdman quaff the dnwt't and leap Into his machine
"Ha! ha!"' aneetred Cyril Petting!!!, albllantly, "In teT> minutes he> will he sound asteop ten thousand feel
In the heavens."
In ft Jiffy or less Roderick Trevanlan was In the air. and by rapidly splrallng upward he wss aooh man?
thousar.d feet In the air. By rising high he would have daylight by 10 o'riock at night, by which tlm? he hoped
to ho far enou?h east to find the sun Just coming up.
"I feel strangely queer," said he after a few moments. " Ht-ho, It feels like the sand man. Put this Is no
time for sleop. A short life and an airy one." he murmured.
