EIGHT PAG ES
ARE WE TO HAVE AN OYSTER
The people probably know Hint they
are to vote at the coming i 1" itlon In
November on a joint resolution of :hc
legislature to amend Section -. Article
X., of the State Constitution. Rut who
knows whut that section Is, and what
effect the adoption of the joint res ?
lotion may have? The section reads a:>
"No tax shall be Imposed on any of
the citizens of this State for the privi?
lege of taking or catching oysters from
their natural beds with ton its. In the
?waters thereof; but the amount of sales
of oysters so taken by any citizen, in
any one year, may be taxed at a rate
not exceeding the rate of taxation im?
posed upon any other spec led of pro?
The design and purpose Is to deny
the people the natural right which Ood
has given them, and which the section
.as it stands only partially recognizes,
and to place these natural beds ot
oysters, the free gift of God, to the
highest bidders?to take them from Ilia
people and turn them over to money
and speculators. The principal plea to*
this repeal of Heaven's bounty to the
poor, so that It may be made the 8].-?
ulation of trusts and syndicates, is that
nil the people of the state are equally
entitled to these oysters, but thai really
only those who live near the natural
beds, where lhe> grow, can enjoy them,
or have nny benefit from them, except
by a system that will turn them Into
money and replenish the common
treasury of the State by n rent or sale,
or a heavier and closer system of tax?
ation. But we sec no project to Ins il
on sharing the yell iw-fever, or its costs
and dangers, nor do we hear of any ar?
guments, from any quarter, to Impose
taxes on citizens, who are exmept from
all Infection by reason of their dis?
tance from the oyster-beds, their
higher altitude, .sic. Yet why not? If
the proximity of Eastern Virginians to
the oyster-beds must be taxed, because
it gives them certain natural ad?
vantages, why shall riot the distance ?.!'
other Virginians from these beds be al?
so taxed, because i: yields them ad?
vantages and exemptions hol shared
by Eastern Virginians? Sauce for the
goose Is sauce for the gander; and it is
a mean and unjust policy which would
not only introduce this unnatural rule
against one section of the Slab- and
refuse to apply it to nil things through?
put all sections of the commonwealth.
Ginseng, and other productions, of
.Western and Southwestern Virginia
yield many benefits and no little reve?
nue to the people who live in those re?
gions; but the people ,if this flection
have never suggested, or even thought,
to tax them on these thing.) for the
common benefit of the State, or .til the
people, because locality gives them Ihc
Special benefits which every locality,
more or less, confers on those res i inj
there. Virginians arc not so im n n
this amendment of monopolists would
represent them to be; and on due re
flection they will reject i; as an Insult,
A SAD MISFIT: TOO BIG AND TOO
The wonder is th.it. Mr. Th imtif
Martin, of Virginia, has r, ,., ... , , .?.
tent for six years with a more U. s.
Senatorship, to which he ia ask .
dictating, re-election, when, if he can
be believed, he has but to gr.it p al any?
thing he wants, and It i |
tested his marvelous nbllitiei su . ...
fully in defeating Gen. Fitzhugh Lee
for the U. S. Senate Jn 18S3, why did ho
eu>t run for Democratic President in
18t>?. defeat McKinley, and save the
country from the shameful rule It has
undergone ever since, at home and
abroad, from hands so Incompetent and
dirty? Upon him, clearly, rests the re?
sponsibility for this misrule; for, to let
him tell It, lie wears the cap of Fortu
natus ("born for luck"), and nothing
can withstand hid resistless will.
He has no principles nor policies, that
anybody knows of, and certainly he has
nothing at nil "worth talking about,"
j as "mum" Is his word and he and his
friends are now diligently enforcing it,
even upon the people in their primaries,
as he prefers that he should give "the
word" to the legislators in caucus?that
word being "Martin'." In the Chicago
convention of 1390, Bryan's manly re?
cord in and out of Congress and his
surpassing eloquence would have avail?
ed nothing against the man who does
nothing and says nothing fur himself,
but has all things done for him, and
being unanimously nominated, unfet?
tered by a platform, be would have
swept the country, for speech Is "sil
vi i n" ami SILENCE, "golden."
.Mr. Martin t^ays in lib? recent man?
ifesto, In pretended reply to some
things said by Hon. W. A. Jones, that
he will favor a constitutional amend?
ment to Hive the people the election or
P. S. Senators, but he thereby admits
opposition to the exercise of the pop?
ular right already possessed by the
voters, to instruct their representatives
in the legislature ms m the popular
choice for Senators; and he and his
friends have emphatically revealed in
the present campaign tli.u the people
shall not express any preference for
Tyler over him. if it can by any means
be prevented. It is .1 safe position to
he for a c institutional amendment that
can hardly pass tinting his political
life, If ever. If his friends can suppress
the right of choice already possessed
by the people.
I)t|l why should .Mr. Martin OVCI1 say
so much? In I8!KI, as he and every?
body knows, he opposed the will and
choice of the people in th.' election of
IT. S. Senator, and he .-"ays he was elect?
ed in opposition to the win and choice
of all tin- railroad Presidents in Vir?
ginia. Packed only by some Inscruta?
ble power, he took possession of our
legislature .'ind wielded II at his pleas?
ure against the people and corporate

The people know Mr. Martin well
enough for their purposes; and if they
had their way, they would make swift

a re-usurpation of a seat in the Fede?
ral Senate. 1112 11 AS DONE N1 IT MING
AS A SENATOR, EXCEPT DRAW
His PAY DURING 11 IS WHOLE
TERM OF SIX YEARS. A man can?
not justly complain if he is rated by
his own record and his own confession;
and judged impartially by these, he
has none of the proper quallflcatl uis of
a Senator of the United States, ivpr. -
settling a great section, State anil peo?
ple?Is the peer of no other Senator
from thv' South; and h;s proper place in

ators from the North; West and East,

ple and to the (scandal of their Slates.
What In- has done required no Sen?
ator. And when a Senator has nothing
better, after six years' service; to ap?
peal to, than his "work" In compi ::; tit
with the department lawyer and legis?
lative act tit. It Is Obvious that he and
his employer.; have mistaken his vo?
cation, and that his salary was an ex?
travagant expenditure, without the re?
turns to be fairly expeeted from :i l'. s.
Senator. Even he and his strongest
advocates admit by the course they are
taking that the people of Virginia
would never choose him as one of their
U. S. Senators.

At llrst, when in l>. half of the Filipinos,
ive quoted our Bucrcd Declaration of
Ilidcpendi nee to maintain that "gov?
ernments derive all their Just powers
ftom the consent of the governed." tho
principle was denied as false and pre?
posterous, or Jeered at as foolish an.I
ridiculous. "If government requires the
consent of the governed," it was said,
"tin re can be no gov? rnmcnl; for, fr?hl i

it Is very amusing to hear the able
editor of the Norfolk Vlrglnlan-Pllot,
cite the large popular vote which Bry in
received In the Presidential election of
1S96, as ati evldctu.t the Immense
popularity of Bryan and free silver, and
in the sumc article solemnly and vehe?
mently asseverate Unit the vote In that
election was fraudulently manipulated
to such an extent as to make the re?
turns nltogi liter unreliable. If the re?
turns of the election are so utterly un?

William Waldorf Astor recently turn?

a footing in British society by a lying
getieology, which pretends to derive the
name and family from an itltclcili no?
ble family called "d' Ast ?rgw," which Iii
course of time wore Off the beginning
and end of Its aristocratic name, and
became plain "Astor." An eminent
Rngiish genealogist examines into the

to support it. nil fab . niid some of
