THE PEOPLE NEED NO PROXIES, THANK YOU. r i - An ardent bear-hunter out west got upon Bruin's trail, and followed it with great pluck and energy for some miles through a tangled wilderness. At length the signs of the proximity of the animal grew numerous and warm; but as the track grew warmer, the ardor of the hunter grew cooler; the chase be? gan to tell upon him, and that tired feeling which so easily persuades a man that he has done enough for duty, and that It is time to be getting toward home to relieve the anxiety of his wife, children end friends, caused his legs to acho and stumble. Finally, the trail became so hot that the hunter con? cluded that that was not a good day for bears, anyhow; and he turned In his tracks and left the bear for an? other day. One Is reminded very vividly of this old story by the course pursued by cer? tain gentlemen In the pursuit of Sen? atorial reform. "The peoplel Yes; the people! Reform Is there, and to the people we must go. Who's afraid of the people? Come on!" But these gen? tlemen euddenly pause and turn Ihelr backs upon the people, as they near that sovereign body. "Yes: the peo? ple!" they continue to shout, as they turn from the people. "They must elect the Senator; but we will nominate him! See! We will relieve the people of the labor and difllculty of choosing the man, being delegated and empow? ered thereto by them, but they shall have the honor, power and glory of electing him!" Ah, gentlemen, we, too, are in favor of going to the people Indeed and truly; and not only in this matter, but in others. But, dear friends of the people, why worry the peoplo at all in this matter, if you, or other "middlemen," are at last to be the result of this labor of the mountains? Why talk of a con? stitutional amendment to give the "choice" of U. S. Senator to a conven? tion, -when that is certainly no more tho people than their leg.filature? And -what matters it who do the electing, if you, or other "representatives, are to nominate or "choose" the Senator? As far as any practical change is or can toe effected by this proposed reform, It is in taking tho "choice" from the leg? islative caucus and placing i; In the caucus, or clique, or steering commit? tee of the party convention. Prece? dents do not alter the fact; they too often show us how and where we, or somebody, blundered. That Is all. Hel? ler keep quiet about them, or the peo? ple may rise to incptire why they should not nominate, in all cases, as well as elect; or do both In one motion. Certainly, in this case, where the ap? peal is directly to Die people, and the movement begun, we must decline to be side-tracked and send on a delega? tion or committee. We Insist on going all the way. The shadow for us, the substance for you; for you the kernel, for us the hull; these are pretty forms and Ingenious devices, but as we are called to take this matter in our own hands, we shall do so. GOOD ADVICE. Where the Washington Post Is not Specially and strongly interested, It has a level head, and its views aTe of tvorth and weight. The Post Is content ?with tho existing law inder which U. B. Senators are chosen, but tt has not taken an extreme position in opposi? tion to reform and constitutional amendment In regard to choosing Sen? ators. In fact, It Is rather In the at? titude ot sa impartial observer, and 1 not as a partisan of either side, that | ! our Washington contemporary regards j j tho whole matter. It lo therefore well to hear It on the recent Senatorial con ! ference at Richmond and the doings of I that body. It says: The reouest to be laid before tho State Committee for the holding of a State convention cannot. In our opin? ion, be granted. It is plainly out of the ] province of the committee, under tho | Democratic plan of organization, to j recognize a mnss meeting, especially when tho participants therein propose | to repudiate the action of a regularly i I constituted State convention. A con- | ventlon called by the committee under ! tho circumstances which now exist ' would be neither legal nor binding. If the rennest should be granted, a very dangerous precedent would be estab? lished. Within the next few months, I for instance, other agitators might as? semble and demand a State convention ] to determine any question which trou- \ bled their uncertain minds, nnd their j appeal would be as worthy of atten- ] tion as the one which is presently to bo I submitted to the State Committee. The j moment the well established and time- | tried rules of party organization are broken through irregular and spasmod- ) lo action, that moment a Pandora's box is opened and disorganization is certain. It would be particularly unwise, also, for a State convention to be called, be? cause the remedy for existing condi? tions. If remedy be needed, Is in the hands of the people. The conference recognised this when It appealed to the voters to send no man to the legisla? ture who Is not unequivocally commit? ted to tho principal of popular election of Senators. I Except that tho Post does not go into i the dangers of the convention itself, it I seems to be well in accord with the views uniformly expressed by THE VIRGINIAN-PILOT, and we trust that : tho Democratic State Committee may feel that it is Just at this crisis in State I and National politics that Its duty is to i allay and compose all dissensions, and not afford opportunities for local dif ! ferances that may well wait. I THE MAIN ISSUE. To be dominated by one idea to the exclusion of every other; to value noth? ing, consider nothing, remember noth? ing but one thing, when there are others, or another, far more imaort ant; this Is very d ingerous to any man and especially so to the young man who has a public career before him, and hopes to succeed;?for this domination in such a man, at such a time, Is his subjection to an issue, and that a side one, instead of advancing and rising to that leadership which nothing should obscure, unless It be some grand end worthy of every sacrifice. Let the Democratic patriot remember tho duty and opportunity that now oc? cupy the hour as they should occudj* his heart and soul;?paramount, en? grossing and as diflicult as they are i worthy of every energy. Here is the post and test of honor, faith, nnd de? votion. It Is the Joint call of liberty j and country; the adjuration of patriot? ism and humanity. To be deaf now Is imbecility; to not take heed is per? dition. The main issue, to the true vision, is the rising sun, before which all smaller things fall back, out of sight. While it is called to-day, It Is sur-eme, the guiding star, the light of head and foot, the centre to which all things converge, the crown of glory und the mead of dauntless fidelity. j The Washington Post, comparing Mc? Kinley and Aguinaldo with each other, says that "it is Aguinaldo, not Presi? dent McKinley nor General Otis, who is trying to forge the chains of slavery for the Filipinos" What a wonderful and terrible fellow this Aguinaldo Is? A mere adventurer and self-seeking barbarian, he has raised an army of Filipinos, without law, authority, gov? ernment, or revenue, nnd Is inspiring them to fight like tigers every step the Americans ore making in the Islands. These Filipinos madly revolt from tho mild, lawful and elevating sway of Mc? Kinley, the Deliverer, rind rush into" treason, hardship, slavery and death for a turbulent rascal, of "no homing, nor likelihood," and are helping with steadfast courage, devotion and enthu? siasm "to forge the chains of slavery" for themselves and their country! Mr. McKinley, on the other hand, is full master of the situation on the j American side, with power to end the j j war any moment, send army and navy j j homo, proclaim peace, liberty and In? dependence and allow the Filipinos "to j ' hnve iholr own ngain." They are seek? ing no more. Tho revolt of Rev. Or. Briggs from tho Presbyterian rrcrd, and his recep? tion in the Episcopal Church as an or? dained priest, have caused much dis? cussion, not only of the creeds panic ularly involved, but of the whole Chris tlan faith; but it all happily ended last Sunday by tho ceremonial ordination of Dr. Pr.KKs by Rlshop Potter In New York. There was much feeling for and ?gainsI tiie doetor In both churches, , I ar.d It wa? feared that some unseemly : wrangling or protesting, if not worse. . would occur on his ordination; but all ! oas-sed quietly, and Dr. Briggs will now i take a trip to Europe. On his return, ? he will labor among the poor of thf Bast Side of New York, as a mission? ary of Christ and the Gospel. God forbid that any of our evangeli? cal churches shall be rent by strife. If Dr. Briggs be right on the main quos l tion of faith, may God oiess him. say we most devoutly. The great heart of the i>e iple?not the little organ of a mob or faction?un? derstands and appreciates William J. ! Bryan.? estimates him at his true val? ue, and yields him gladly its devotion, trust and ildellty. Mow can politicians, oflice-scckcra and nil the tiihe. of sel? fish aspirants for wealth, power, or fnmo comprehend a man so different from themselves,- so unselfish, so ded? icated by his nature to right, truth and liberty, so modest, so unassuming, and so utterly without tho "airs" that common men "put on" to hide their deficiencies and their aims? They can only look on, wonder, and mlsrepre i sent, as the uninformed iron contemns and fears, wonders at and despises, the magnet whose spirit so attracts and so truly points the one way that brings order out of chaos and makes a straight path through all the maze of things. I I The rallrocd massacro at Exeter was a trifling affair: only twenty passen? gers, or excursionists, murdered or massacred and about thirty, more or less, wounded. The only loss of any account is the damage to the ears, and possible damages ths Company may be forced to pay for dead and wounded. Nobody responsible for one train putting Itself In position to be crushed, nor for the other coming on. Just In the nick of time, to knock out a long string. Whnt is the prize to be awarded the Company killing and wounding the most people, with least damage (to Itself), Is not yet disclosed. Probably somebody has kept count, and can toll us which of the competitors Is ahead so far. As we said yesterday, the thing to do Is to regulate these trusts by law, to make them the servants of the peo? ple, to prevent them from Injuring the people or trespassing upon anybody's personal rights, to force them to do the work of a good and efficient ser? vant.?Richmond Times. As far as words go, nobody Ehould ask more, and we- thank our con ternpo ; rary for its concessions to common j sense and common right. But a trust ! may grow so great and strong as to i defy law and government, and we challenge the Times to cite an In? stance in the modern his'ory of Eu? rope where any such organization or combination has been found compatible with government, or private right, no matter what Its professed objects charitable or religious. A contemporary suggeflts that pan? taloons are lndellcaie,-if not Indecent and Immoral, and that it Is unjust to make a modest man wear such gar? ments, when he would prefer a gown. This seems a novel complaint, as the usual thing is to hear that women are too much given to wearing the breeches. In 6pite of law. Our contem? porary, too, forgets that if breeches were not compulsory, many a. male human animal would assume the fe? male garb to the disgrace of both sexes, whereas In breeches he Is a disgrace only to his own sex, and can be more easily Identified and kicked. To some simple good people, It Is In? credible and foolish that human lib? erty cajt be destroyed lu this Republic. To them It Is predicting ice In the tor? rid zones, or pointing a picture of the I South pole all In flowers. Thoy do not know the law of the pendulum, as ap? plied to opinions and morals, nor that of the meeting of extremes In conviction and sentiment; yet it Is In accord with well ascertained principles and estab? lished precedents, that this very day. In this country, the most ultra advo? cates of tyranny?ay. of absolutism? are numerous and rampant. The high-handed proceedings of Gen. Merriam In Idaho, under Federal au? thority. In ordering the disbandment of the Labor Unions of Idaho, have cre? ated great excitement In that State and throughout the labor organizations of the whole country. The President and his administration and party are gen? erally held responsible for Gen. Mer . riam's course, and the affair tends to strengthen the rising tide against Han ! na Imperialism in all sections of the I Union, and In the Republican party as : well. All things seem to be working to ] gcther for a grand Democratic victory I for liberty and the people in 1900. The greatest enemy any party, or movement can have Is the obstinate and self-opinionated gentleman who never fails to make his multiplying foes its foes by holding himself and hfs views of far more Importance than their wis | dorn, or the success of the parly or ; movement. Pig-hendedness of this acute type Is always caused, or accompanied. 1 by less brains than in any other cere? bral disorder. In fact, post-mortem ex? amination reveals the presence of no grey matter to the closest scrutiny. It Is a common, but curious mistake, io suppose that Jones doesn't know that he Is tiiller than Smith or stronger than Brown. Vet It Is a mistake often made?none oftener. You may be sure, too. that Jones knows he can't sing, nor play the fiddle, nor euchre, just as well as you know It, if not better. A few nu-:i have what is called "a blind side;" but they are usually feols. It Is a great pity that so many of cur strongest, best and most exores slve words are outlawed by social con? vention. It Is significant of the fact, however, that much truth Is banished from good society with the words that can alone express It. "Come to dir.neri" cries New York to Admiral Dewey. "Pray excuse me," responds Dewey. "Will not another of my Manila captains do? 1 can neither dance nor sinR, nor te'.l stories out of school; nor am 1 accustomed to your dinner-hours. Taking towns from the Filipinos does not seem to he a very difficult matter, but holding them afterward is calcu? lated to make the McKinley adminis? tration tired. Conscience makes cowards of all men. ?Exchange. What a pity it can't make all men honest. . . -_VIRGINIAN-PILOT'S-_P HOME STUDY 6IR6LE (Copyrighted, 1*99.) DIRECTED BV PROF.

POPULAR STUDIES IN LITERATURE. XIII.-LITERARY CLUBS OF LONDON. BY JOHN EBENEZER BRYANT, M. A. When the literary clubs of London are mentioned, the lirst ona that comes to mind, almost the only one. Is that famous club of which Johnson was the founder and for many years the lead? ing spirit. Clubs in the lust century were different affairs from the clubs? the great communal restaurants?that are so popular to-day. Johnson de? fined the club as being "an assembly of good fellows, meeting under certain but a pleasure. He loved, as he said, to fold his legs and have his talk out. He was ready to bestow the overflow? ings of his full mind on anybody who would start a subject, on a fellow-pas? senger in a stage coach, or on the per? son who sat at the same table with him in an eating house. Hut his'conversa? tion was nowhere so brilliant and strik? ing as when he was surrounded by a few friends, whose abilities and knowl? edge enabled them, r.s he once express? ed It. to send him back every ball he threw. Some of these. In 1764. formed themselves Into a club, which gradually became a formidable power In the com? monwealth of letters. The verdicts pro? nounced by this conclave on new books FROM THE PORTUAI TBY REYNOLDS IN THE NATIONAL GALLERY. conditions." The "conditions'" that Johnson most regarded were those that lent themselves easily to genial conver? sation. These were found to be the; gathering of the "good follows" to- j gether at stated times, generally at I night, and the enjoyment in common j of a supper or dinner. Membership was a matter that In Johnsm's opinion! could not be too scrupulously guarded. When once It was reported to him. not! long after the Institution of the "Lit-j erary club," that Garrlck proposed to> Join it?that ho had said "I like It much: I think I'll be of you." Johnson was furious. "He'll be of us!" he growled. "How dee? he know we'll' permit him? The first duke In England were speedily known all over London and were sufficient to sell off a whole edition In a day or to condemn the sheets to the service of the trunk maker ;nd the pastry cook. Nor shall we think this strange when we con? sider what creat and various talents nnd acquirements met In the little fra lernlty. Goldsmith was the representa? tive of poetry and lirht literature, Reyrolds of the arts, Burke of politi? cal eloquence and political philosophy. There, too, were Gibbon, tho greatest historian, nnd Jones, the greatest lin? guist of the age. Garrlck brought to the meetings his Inexhaustible pleasan? try, his incomparable mimicry and his consummate knowledge of stage effect.

I Tho reputation that the Literary club : enjoyed in its early days arose partly j fruni Johnson's own reputation as the "dictator" of literature, and portly ; from the reputation of Johnson. Buike, Reynolds and ottier members of the club as talkers. No club, ?.nd Indeed no unofficial association of any sort, has ever entered Into literature and be ce- ic. as it were, a part of the com? mon literary Inheritance of the world ns this famous "Literary club" has done. Here Is Mncaulay's well known por? traits c of the club in its years of greatest fame: "To discuss questions of taste, of learning, of casuistry. In language so exact and so forcible hat It might have been printed without the alteration of a word, was to Johnson no exertion, were two high-born and high-bred gentlemen, closely bound together by friendship, but of widely different cr sraeters and habits?Rennet Lang ton, distinguished by his skill in Greek literature, by the orthodoxy of his opinions and by the sanctity of his life*: and Topha.m Beauclerk. renowned for his amours, h'.s knowledge of the gay world, his fas idlous taste and his sarcastic wit. To predominate over such a society was not easy. Yet even over such a society Johnson predomina? ted. Burke might have disputed the Minremacy to which others were un? der the necessity of submitting. But Burke, though not generally a very pa? tient listener, was content to take the second part when Johnson wns pres? ent: nnd the club irself, consisting of so many eminent men, is to this day pop? ularly designated as Johnson's club." The Institution of the Wierary cluh was duo to 61r Joshua Reynolds. Rey? nolds was himself a hospitable en:or talner. "For above thirty years," says Malone, his biographer, "there was scarce a person In the three kingdoms distinguished In literature, art, law, politics or war who did not occasion? ally appear at his tables." His dinners were famous. This was not becst.se ot the material pleasure they afforded, for generally more guests were Invited than there were seats for. and "as for waiting," we are told, "It was every man for himself." It was because of "the feast of reason and the flow of soul" which Invariably accompanied the dinners. The enjoyment which these promiscuous gatherings gave suggested to Reynolds the idea that a definite association should be formed by which "good fellows" of kindred spirit could regularly assemble for mutual delectation. Johnson fell In with the Idea and at once set about carrying It out. Ho had established such an association some fourteen years before, and the memories of its meet? ings were very dear to hlm. So upon the model of Johnson's Ivy Lane c'.ub of 1750 the Literary club of 1764 was auspiciously formed. The original mem? bers were nine. Six of them were among those described by Macaulay In the passage above quoted?Reynolds and Johnson, Goldsmith and Burke, Langton and Bcauclerk. Garrick was not admitted until 1773. Jones was ad? mitted the same year. Gibbon was & later acquisition. At first the club met weekly on Mon? day evenings at 7. In 1772 the day ot meeting was changed to Friday. In 1775 It was decided that the club should dine together once in every fortnight during the sessions or parliament. Tho historians Macaulay and Hallam were. In their time, constant attendants at theso fortnightly sessional dinners. The club began with a membership fixed at nine. This was soon enlarged to twelve. Several enlargements were subsequently made, but In 1780 tho number was definitely fixed at forty. The original place of meeting wan at a coffee house called the Turk's Head, in Gerrard street, and this Is the place of meeting most famous In the history In the club. "I believe Mr. Fox will allow me to say," remarked the Bishop of St. Asaph on the night of his election, "that the honor of being elected into the Turk's Head club is not Inferior to that Of be? ing the representative of Westminister or Surrey." The point of this remark lies In the fact that Fox. after one of the flerce:-;t fights known in parliament? ary history, the. whole strength of tho court and government b?lng directed against him, had Just been elected member of parliament for Westminis? ter. One of the original members of the club was a Sir John Hawkins, a "pom? pous, conceited, parslmonluB" attorney, who afterward became a'biographer of Johnson. Hawkins had been a member of the earlier Ivy Lane club, and for that reason Johnson, In whom tenaci? ty of friendship was the strongest of characteristics, had proposed him as a member of the club In 1764. Uut Haw? kins became so unpopular in tho new club that even Johnson was forced to admit that he was "a very unelubablo man" and out of place th.-re. Finally, because of his rudeness to Burke, he was "elbowed out." Hawkins had ob? jected to Goldsmith's being a member, alleging that Goldsmith was " a mere literary drudge, equal lo the task of compiling nnd translating, but llttlo capable ot original and sllll loss of pottic composition." And yet Gold? smith had already written "Tho Vleas ot Wakefleltl," and In a year or twfc more was to be recognized as the first poet of his age. Hawkins, however, favored Garrlcks' pretensions to membership. Johnson, with obstinate Inconsistency, objected to Garrick. "He will disturb us by his buffoonery," he said. To his friend, Thrale, he declared that If Garrick ap? plied he "would blackball him." "What elr," exclaimed Thrale, "Mr. Garrick 1 ?your friend, your companion?wouht you blackball hlm?" "Why, sir." re? plied Johnson, "I love my llttlp David : dearly?better than nil or any of his flatterers do. But surely one ought to Sit In a society like nuts 'unelbowed by : gamester, pimp or player." Subsequently Goldsmith took up Gar r>lc's case "It would give an agree. ! a Me variety to our meetings to have ! an Increase of membership. We have ] traveled over eafh other's minds," he said. "There can be nothing new among as." Johnson relented, and ; once having relented, he cqrdlally a;. ! proved. Garrick, though hot much given to clubs, became a valued mem? ber. When he died 11770) Johnson de? clared the ciuh "should go Into widow? hood for a year," and accordingly no new members were permitted to ba elected durlnr tho year. Johnson's -magnificent tribute w"ll occur to oveTy one. Tn his "Lives of the Poets." speaking of Garrick's d?ath. he said, in words thai seem destined to be Im? mortal: "Tt had eel lived the gayety of nation* and diminished the stock of harmlcs pleasures."
