Tim Formeri:a|iouaca Tjli'r'?('?ii?ii and (ho Latter rtiiirtinv. a Disciiaslou of Records. rr. ?' ? . tViY. The Senatorial campaign was practi? cally opened at Houston, the county scat of Halifax, last Monday, when the lion. Wllllatn A. Jone?, of Richmond county. Congressman from the First district, who lias taken the stump for Governor Tyler, and Mr. Clem. Green, of Charlotte, one of Senator Martin'? supporters, met on the stump in Joint debate. MR, MARTIN'S POSITION. Mr. Joik-s opened the debate. lie Baid: "?Mr. Green, who is hero to represent Mr. Martin, lias in Ills pocket a. letter from thai gentleman, saying Im is now, and alWnyts hat] been, in favor of the election of Senators by the) people. I Went to Mr. Martm at Itoauoko and bc sotight him to vote for a. resolution to that effect, ami lie told me there thai In- was opposed to such action on prin- 1 ciplc. Two years ago you (pointing to Senator Harksdale) Introduced a reso? lution in the Virginia Senate with the same object in view, but tit'- junior Senator's inlluonco was put to work, led by Mr. Wickhnm, a railroad attorney, nnd Mr. Uoykln, and it was declared defective. Who inspired that action? Thomas S. Martin, who now a?sks you t>> fiend hint back to the Schale." Mr. .Ion .-, at this p.tint, spoke of the. charge that the May coliven'tlon was (limed lit Senator Martin, and said: "Wiiat iighl has Martin or any other man to remain in tin- Senate if the peo? ple don't want liiin there? Great God, to whom does this bountry belong; to Mr. Martin, or lo tin- people, who sup? port it by their brain ami brawn'."' KVtA ? HZED TYLER. Mr. Jones spent considerable time In discussing the popular election ques? tion, after Which he culogiaed Governor Tyler at considerable length. Concern, liig the statement that tie- G?verhor was Inexperienced In national affairs, the speaker ask- I what i xperlencc did Martin have, how many in tin- audience knew In- oven lived before he was elect* ed Senator? lb- was known, so far as be was known at. ail. as the ngent and lobby lilt of a railroad corporation. WHAT HAS MARTIN DON 127 "I have served with him every day," said th't speaker;" ho lias been in Con? gress, and I say if llogc Tyler can': make a better Senator than he I mn sorry tor him. Mr. Martin has been there six years. Has anybody ever' beard <>f his mnkliig a speech? Often have I In aid northern Senators attack [Virginia and the South, hut never has Martin raised his voice to repel the at? tack." DISPENSOR OK PATRON AG 19. Mr. Jones referred to the action of the Roanoke convention in endorsing Daniel nnd remaining silent as to Marlin, and then turning to Mr. Green In- asked htm to point "tit what work Mr. Martin had ever done to entitle him to re-election. ' I am told," Mr. Jones continued, "though I don't vouch tor the truth of it. that lie has secured a great deal of patronage for his con Btltuchts. How has that patronage been dispensed? To reward the frit nds and workers of Tit..mas s. Mat tm, nnd 1 wish l had time to look ihi > Martin's record. KECOR1 >S AM > UK- 'i ?RDS. "There are two kinds ??:' r.mis?pos? itive ami negative. Martin is both posi? tive ami negative, lb- can't speak. That Is liol Ills fault, but lie at least OUglll to know how :?> vote, and not knowing that. In- otiglii to have sense enough in follow the b ad of John W. Daniel. I'.u: In- never did that. The silver question bos been up in the Senate twice since Martin went Ihere, nnd if yon will bo llevo ine, ho \.-. d on,.- for silver ami once tor gold. How in- will vote ?ie\: tint - no man this sldo of Heaven can tell." VOTES I?< >ik;i:i>. Mr. Jones picked up a copy of the C.trcsslonnl Record showing tho vote on tin- war-revenue measure, and. dis? secting it carefully, said that Mr. Mar? tin had dodged ev.-ry voto of nny Im? portance of tlie- bill. lie asserted posi? tively that every other Senator in the body was voting on this important measure. Mr. Martin voted on the clauses and amendments, that counted for naught, and escaped into the cloak? room lo avoid liolng recorded on tin* Important ones. Continuing, the speaker said: "Taking a. retrospective view of tin- men who have represented Virginia 1n the Senat.-, can yon say that Thom ns S. .Martin is a worthy successor of tho-e noblo sons of Virginia?" Mr. Jones spoko nl considerable length on this point, ami then charg? ing the junior Senator with an attempt at bossisin, he referred to Hannntsin In oiti... Qunyism in Pennsylvania ami Platt ism in New York, ami said: "I'm! great God, don't let us have Bitch rule In old Virginia." ROSS-RIDDEN ri'.KSS. Mr. Jones was only allow ed nn? hour in which to ..p.-.n. ami Iiis time being up. he concluded as follows: "I have no nsplrations for ofllce, despite tit - stn'. nionts of boss-ridden papers, lull I am h.-re to prevent the election of a boss, If l can help it." The speaker took his p at. nmld loud hpplatise, but before doing so nsked Mr. Green (o explain, if lie could, Mr. Martin's failure to vote on the war revenuo bill. Mi:. GREEN'S SPEECH. Mr. Green occupied an hour -and a. half. In the outset he characterized Mr. Martin a i the most pi erlcss Demo; erat, within the limits of Virginia!' Said he: "Had I been passing the court h Oil SO Whllo Mr. Jones was tspoakintr. rind nol known what was in progress, I should have th night that Mr. Martin v.ns being tried for murder. Mr. Jones lias spent his time in tin- use of invec? tives against Mar.in. but not one word ban he said about his straw man?'Sen? ator' Tyler." Tau eh: er followed this, and er!<?? of "right" were h'nrd. Mr. Green correct cd himself and said that Governor Ty? ler would never bo Senator Tyler. Con? tinuing; ho Bald: "Wo are Inflicted every now and then with measles and smallpox, and about every ten years by the "outs.* who cannot get In with an epidemic of pol deal reform. Daniels tells yon that Martin Is a greater Sena? tor than he, and all the. Democratic Congressmen, save Jones and lllxey, endorse Martin." llr. Jones asked what Mr. Martin lias done. "I havo his record riuht here (waving papers aloft). The laben inir people have endorsed him from all over the State, and the busi? ness men of Norfolk endorsed him for Iiis work in getting through an appro? priation for deepening ihe channel there." Mr. Green referred to the service Mr. Martin rcndi red the state lieijt Com? mission and then, asserting that Gov? ernor Tyler helped Martin to beat l.ee. said: "Well, now. if Martin was good enough to beat l.ee with, he is good enough to bury Tyler with." "Tyler." Mr. Green continued, "de? nounced Martin as the boss of the ofllc? trust. TYl.KU AND MAI IT IN'. *'I am t?i years olil," said Mr. Green, " and ever sine,. 1 was born H?ge Tyl lias been running for ntUee. lb- ran and ran and ran until the people elected him Gov< rnor to get ri-1 of him. Still he wants more. He made his son h:s otltce messenger and another son who never heard u pun lircd, save at a rabbit in Pulnskl, he ha.i made a major in the nriny. i understand he has another son whom he is K":n^ to make King of the Philippines! Now lie wants to be Sen? ator, and it" he succeeds In gratifying this ambition he will give up the gov? ernorship to a gold Hemocr.il, Edward ICchols." DODGED MARTIN'S RBC< >ltD. Concerning Mr. Martin's failure t>> vote on the war-revenue bill, Mr. Green said there were a whole l"t of Demo? crats in the clonk room at the same time lb" junior Senator from Virginia was there. This polm he then dismissed, and taking up Me- Itoahoke resolution endorsing Daniel, ho said that Mr. Martin was the "getter up" of tie- r is olution, and now lie was being blamed beentise he did noi endorse himself. The sponki r made a humorous allu? sion to Mr. Tyler's candidacy, asserting that lie was pin up to lx< shot at after ; .Mr. Jones had dcclim d to run. and after I Mr. Montague had found he was loo young und Mr. G ode had found that he wus too old. lie reft rrcd to the G >v erhor as having sunk into oblivion after I he had gotten the nigger regiment "tip. pin ted" in the nrmy, mid said that tilt people of Virginia would say to hit iCxcellency: "Governor, stay where yon are till you servo year term out, and ! then if yen are good we w.lll sec about giving you something else in ill" si by and by." The editorial in the i.e. Ilglnus Herald endi r.-!ns Martin for his work on the Richmond College bill wa I referred to by the speaker, and then he continued: "If Mr. Martin were the shiny reptile his opponents have mad Iiitit out to be, I would say if lynch law were eVer just Uli I, new Is the time for the While Clips.
