POSTMASTER. i - In the event of the appoint ment of another man for the office of postmaster of this city, why should it not be left to a prim ary election? "Let the people rule" has been the Democratic slogan for years. No true Dem ocrat can object to the people, whom the postmaster is to serve, having a voice in his selection. It is the democratic manna. It cannot be urged that if that method was selected, then the republicans could com bine and make the nomination of a republican certain. In the selection of an officer to be ap pointed by a democratic presi dent, they would not offer to im press their wishes on the ap pointing power. Besides this primary can be limited ' to the Democratic party in which all the party can be heard. It may be urged that if it is left to the people that it is possible that their choice may not be selected because the vote would be so divided that no real choice of the people would be had. This cart easily be obviated. The second or even the third choice ballot can be used and then it will finally come down to a choice between two contending candidates as to which will be selected. '.We tried to have such a pro vision incorporated in the gen eral pi im ury law for the State and was ii form ad by our representa ive that such provisions were substantially incorporated in the bill as drawn and which was then before the Legislature. If they were in the same, they were stricken out; for certain it is that they are not in the law. Let's have the principles of democracy incorporated in the law itself. We go before the people shouting for a rule of the people but when it comes to en acting laws to give the people some voice in their government, we find that the rights of the people have been carefully em asculated. Again we say "Lets have a post office primary." If any man is willing to oppose the rights of the people to select their post master, then let that man, 'go way back and sit down." THE PRESIDENT'S SILENCE. The silence of the president on important cabinet appointments, exceeds that of Dean Maitland. It has become oppressive. The daily .papers are restless; also several hundred thousand boys who fought in the trenches are on the anxious seat ' It may be that the President has his mind fully made up as to the personnel of his cabinet. If he . t.' ' ALL KINDS OF Field Seeds, Hay, Corn and Oats Let Me Quote You Prices on Seeds. I Only Handle The Best Also STAPLE and FANCY GROCERIES.

The people are the governed and they have the right to know whom the Presi dent selected as his advisors. - It Is said that "Deep water runs still." Evidently from this we must assume that the Presi dent is deep in meditation and that the appointments which he will make will be eminently sat isfactory to the people. This would be confbrting to us if we were not haunted by that other well known fact that all still water Is not deep. The Presi dent should take the people into his confidence and tell them frankly whom he intends to ap point as the members of his cabinet Further dallying on his part will confirm a well founded belief that there are "others" who know his mind on this subject MADISON HAS IT.

Don't be contented with that sophism that we are the best peo ple on earth and that everybody knows it Remember that there about fifteen millions of people in the United States who never heard of Richmond or its people. Some people are migratory birds -birds of passage. Lets get a few to stop with us and then show them that Richmond is a good place for . them to live. People like to be shown. - It snows; it blows; it rains. You who are well fed, clothed sheltered and who have prosper ed, share your good things with the poor. Thats Christianity. TIs religion that can give, sweetest comforts while we live." Yes, while we live. For a fine funeral, a cart load of flowers or a marble shaft piercing the skies, will never carry a Scrooge to heaven. It Rains! But let it rain. Have we not good streets and good side walks? Many a larger city is worse off than Richmond in that respect Be thankful for what we have. We will get more. Let the knocker, squeal; the kicker, knock and the squealer kick. If well founded, it will do us all good. We will correct our errors and they will be relieved. Our Schools! Aren't you proud j of them? Lets help them to be j better yet D. B.

I heard him three time and I feel that I have made the discovery of a really great mas ter of assemblies. I laughed until I was on the verge of collapse: then I was res cued by a wise remark worthy of a philos opher. I wept like a little child as he led me through tcence of boyish delight or sympathy. Then he lifted me to height of moral vision which I hope I may never forsake.
