POPULAR VOTE Movement Looking to Change in Methods of Selection. PARTY MANAGERS CONFER nomoornllc I.onclcr* Issue to the l'?o pie an Add res? In Which They JPolul Out Objcr tlOUS to Iho ['roi. out System -Popular nrnmnil For a Chnugo ?Inlnicu-Other Hintes ftre TaUlnr. Action, The telegraphic columns of the Vir? ginian-Pilot's issue of Sunday give an (account of a conference of Democrats held In Richmond to take action look? ing to a chance In the method Of elect? ing Untied States Senators. The con? ference issued an address which in be? lieved to have been practically agreed upon at the lime of Congressman Jones visit to Richmond some two weeks ago, when a number of gentlemen prominent lo political affairs met him and talked this matter over freely. THE ADDRESS. Following Is the address: To the Democratic Voters of Virginia: The demand for a change In the me? thod of electing United States Senators Is so widespread and so Imperative that the Issue thereby raised cannot longer be Wisely or safely avoided by the Democrats of Virginia. Tbc sentiment In favor of the election of Senators by direct vote of the people Is not of recent origin: but its growth in the present tleo.ule is unequalled in our entire hls tory. That it has been quickened im? mensely by the shocking disclosures of the legislative scandals which have dis? graced many of the Slates of the Union Is painfully apparent, and their effect tipon tne pdbllc. 6oH8(!lellCU L'Uiiuut have escaped the most Indifferent ob? server of passing events. Indeed, the Situation has become well-nigh Intol? erable In many of the States. The peo? ple of Virginia cannot remain Insensi? ble to conditions >???> fraught with peril to our Institutions. REPRESENT SPECIAL INTERESTS. Too often Senators of the United States do not represent the body of the people of the -several States, but very frequently represent special corporate interests or special classes. Mortifying an this fact must be to every lover of our government. It is no wnt dis? covery, although the evil consequences and bitter degradation Involved in it have of late been presented with fre? quent and Impressive emphasis. The vice In the existing method of elect? ing Senators was detect* I by many of the wisest of the founders of the re? public at the very beginning of their great ta?k, among them the Virginia patriot*, whose opinions at this date are accepted as the most valuable po? litical legacies that have come down t" us from all the past. These men had an Inherited and Instinctive love of liberty and abhorrence of tyranny In any form, which armed them with the power of genius to carry out their high resolve to have for themselves and to bequeath to their tlssceridants an < n durlng free government, resting upon the free will of a free people. The ar? gument for the present system was mads in that day frankly and without disguise. Cue of the most prominent advocates of the legislative method of electing Senators. Mr. berry, <>r Mas? sachusetts, "insisted that the commer? cial and moneyed Interests would be more secure In the hands of the State Legislatures than of the people at large." MADISON AND JEFFERSON. James Madison, on the other band, declared that the "great fabric to be raised would be more stable and en? during If it should res: upon the solid foundation of the people themselves than If It should stand merely upon the pillars of the Legislatures them? selves." The declaration of Thomas Jefferson, "I am not among those who fear tin* people," need not have been preserve!! to afisura us where the judgment and sympathies of the founder of Democra? cy were placed on this question; nor can It b? doubted that Patrick Henry, the matchless defender of popular rights, approved the Judgment of "Washington, Madison. Randolph, Ma? son, and Hlalr, who cast the Influence and vote of Virginia against the elec? tion of Senators by the Legislatures, and over whose better judgment that provision was Incorporated in the Federal Constitution. The sentiment of the great Virginians of that day, with? out regard to party, approved the elec? tion of Senator? by the people, and it may be affirmed without hesitation that confidence in and reliance upon the people to govern themselves is in? herent in the plan upon which Ood built Vlrglsia manhood. It 1? not to be denied that the Senate of the United States contains states? men of high ability and character, but It must be conceded that the average Intellectual and moral stature of its members Is growing less and less, whilst th* lnUUeetual cultivation of the masses of th# people attains dally higher and higher stages- Who does not know that In many of the States the Influence of great corporations Is more potent 1n the election of Senators than the sentiment of the mnss of voters: and hew often have the legis? latures chosen those who wera scarcely known to the people and defeated those ?whose election the people had decreed? The Senatorial elections and contests of the past and passing year, In Ohio, New "York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, West - Virginia, Wjsoonsln. Nebraska. Utah, ?^fevada, California, Maryland and Mon? tana, present a closo series of the hid? eous scandals, such as shock the moral 4;er.se of the country, whilst at the (some time furnishing new and Indis y.utable testimony against the wisdom if a plan capable or such desecration land abuse. THE SENATE'S DFFIANT SILENCE. But this question has now passed be? yond the argumentative stage. Upon it the minds of the people are firmly mad* up. Tho House of Representatives of the United States has repeatedly, and by an almost unanimous vote, passed resolutions to amend the Constitution so a3 to give the people- the right to choose their Senators, but the Senate boa as often stifled thes* resolutions in committee, not daring to discuss them in open session, well knowing that to do so would be to sign the death war? rant of many of Its members aspiring to re-election. This sullen and defiant Alienee oq the part of tho beneficiaries cf tne vloloue system 16 in Itself a con? vincing argument that the remedy has been too long delayed. Many of the States of the Union have, through their, legislatures, called upon Congress to | submit to the people or the States an amendment to the Constitution giving to them the right to elect their Sena? tors by direct vote. In California, more than nine-tenths of the voters of the State, at a recent popular election, voted in favor of a change, and within the past few weeks the Legislature of North Carolina ami Missouri unani? mously passed resolutions instructing their Seniitors to support a resolution to so amenil the Constitution. In the Fifty-third Congress, the Hon. William J. Bryan, then a Representative from the State of Nebraska, introduced and earnestly supported a resolution to ac? complish this gnat reform; and within the past few weeks the national chair? man of the Democratic party, himself a United States Senator, has said: "I am In favor of the election of Sena? tors by the direct vote of the people. I have changed my views upon this sub? ject within the last year or two. The whole people cannot be debauched by money or otherwise; it is safest to put all the power we can in their hands." POSITION OK VIRGINIA DEMO? CRATS. The doom or this relic of a. dark past. Of the age when the people were not trusted with the custody of their own' rights nml liberties, Is already written.! The question of the hour is. Shall the Democrats of Virginia refuse to partici? pate In a great movement destined to restore to the people, where it rightly belongs, the right to elect their Senators as they now do their Representatives and their Governors? In South Carolina, Oeorgla, Illinois and other states, the people, despair? ing "if any action by Ihc Senate itself, I have discovered n remedy for ihc evtl. | and have hot hesitated to apply it. They have adopted senatorial primary sys? tems, by im ans of which they virtually | ? lecJ their Senators. In no single i stance where such primaries have b< resorted to has the result l.n dlsap-| pointing tii them. Of course, the trusts, tilt- rings, and the political bosses have opposed, hut whenever and wherever| the people have once taken the power Into their own hands, they never have been known to relinquish it. It is vain and misleading to say that this question has been decided by the] party organization in Virginia. Noth? ing is ever decided which Is not decided right, nr win.-n is -I. . lo'd attaiist the irresistible course ,if events. It is true that a resolution providing for sena? torial primaries fail, d of passage at the Itoanoke <' invent ion of |s!?7. but it is also true that it was no; considered until a late hour In the deliberations of that body, and until many of its members had departed for their homes. The principal argument urged ngainst its passage was not directed against its merit!-, hut was based upon the con? tention that the convention?not hav? ing been called for that. hut. on the contrary, for an entirely different pur? pose? namely, the nomination of a State ticket?ought not hnstily and Incon? siderately to take action so important. As it was. and In spite of the fact that many of the votes against the proposi? tion were east by proxies, unlnstrueted upon that subject, it received <t? votes. INFLUENCE OP CORPORATIONS. The Legislature oi" Virginia has al? ways contained men of a high order of character und ability, and many of the Senators from this Stato have been mos) distinguished for wisdom and public and private virtue. And yet It cannot be successfully denied that HO men assembled at the State Capital, subjected to the powerful and insidious Influence of corporations and combina? tions of corporations, controlling hun? dreds of millions of money and em? ploying hundreds of thousands of trained agents and professional men, have not th.e resisting fore- of half a million of voters, each intrench-d in the fortress of bis own home and the af? fections of his own household, whose sub- protection is his freeman's vote. If this refuge?the people?should ever fail. then. Indeed, must the republic be j despaired of, but not until then. In the light of rec.-nt events it can? not bo gainsaid that "legislative el. liens ate ;, prolific s .tin e of legislative corruption." That in many recent and well known instances they have re suited in prolonged deadlocks and en? tailed great cost upon the unfortunate Commonwealths where they have ex? isted is an nddltlonnl argument againsl the present method of electing United States Senators. Within a few days past the Legislatures of Delaware, Cali? fornia and Utah, after frittering away their entire !? rins in fruitless efforts to elect United States Senators, have ad? journed finally, and for two years to come each Of these States will be de? prived of one hair of its representation In the Senate- The indications all are that the legislative deadlock in Penn? sylvania will not be broken, and that It also will lose a Senator for at least two years. CALL Kni; MEETING HERE. To the I).-nu era II,- Party of Virginia this note of admonition and warning is sounded. Upon it has been laid the solemn responsibility of the government of our beloved Commonwealth in the visible future, und the election of the next United States Senator to he chosen from this State.
