' .Richmond. Va., Oct. 18.?The Republi?
cans of this city and other portions of
.Virginia have Just received from W. F.
Burdell. treasurer of the campaign fund
of the Ohio Republicans, an urgent let?
ter, asking for funds to aid in defeat?
ing Jolui R- McLean
The letter urges the importance of
remitting promptly "in order to main?
tain Republican supremacy in that
The Republicans here were aghast at
receiving such a request, and take It
to mean that Hahn a has declined to
tap his barrel to any great extent.
The letter is careful to state that it
Js not Instigated by the Federal gov?
ernment, but simply the action of the
members of tho committee. It is not
thought that many Virginia Republi?
cans will respond.
Secretary Joe Button was 'in his office
at Democratic headquarters this morn?
ing busily engaged in attending to
matters that have arisen during his
The Richmond-Ln.neaster fight pres?
ents some rather knotty points, but
there will probably be a solution of the
matter found that will be satisfactory.
Under the election law candidates
must notify clerks of County and Hust?
ings Courts to their candidacy twenty
days before election. To-day is the last
day upon which such notification can
be given. From the Richmond-Lancas?
ter district tht names of R. Carter Woll?
kord and Thomas H. Pinkard have been
sent in. As the State Democratic Com?
mittee has decided that no nominal ion
has boon made in that district, it Will
bo necessary for a convention to be
held, but either Wellford or Pinkard
must be the nominee, unless some other
name has heretofore been sent in, which
Is not regarded as likely.
In the event that a convention is held
and one of these gentlemen nominated,
the other will be expected to drop out.
Some talk has arisen around the State
as to the Governor's position regarding
?the Democratic caucus, which is to
elect a Senator.
It Is claimed that the majority of the
Independents running are Tyler men!
The question asked is: "How can these
candidates help the Governor, should
they be elected. Under the rules, they
cannot participate in the caucus. It is
within the bounds of possibility, how?
ever, that enough Independents and
(Republicans may be elected to control
the nomination, should they combine
With the Governor's friends.
The "Regulars" are asking whether
Governor Tyler will pledge himself to
go Into the caucus and abide by Its
decision, declining to accept a nomina?
tion obtained in any other manner.
The appointment was made today for
Hon. C. A. SwAnsori to address the
?Democrats of Augusta, at the court?
house on October 23d.
Governor Tyler this morning declined
to attend the Dewey celebration In At?
lanta on. account of the pressure of olll
THE PATRICK LYNCHERS.

protest against whose pardon has been
Hied with the Governor, lit might be
stated a hat the convicted men have
never been transported to the peniten?
tiary and are now confined in Patrick
county Jn'il, pending the result of an ap?
peal to a court of higher resort. The
Governor has received no petition for
the pardon of the men nnd the action
of those 'persons who oppose pardon In
, sending in a protest was anticipatory.

A PLUMBER COMMITS SUICIDE?
A SAFE CRACKED.
Newport News, Oct. IS.?Elmer B.
White, of the plumbing llrm of Fifer &
White, which has been In business for
for some time on Twenty-eighth street,
committed suicide this morning at an
early hour by gashing his throat with
a knife, and later he fell out of a sec?
ond story window anil received injuries
which hastened his death.
Mr. White had been drinking heavily
for several days, and last night, it Is
said, he was on the verge of delirium
tremens. Iii? friends seem to think
that he did 'the rash deed while in a
temporary fit of insanity, and that he
would not have tried to kill himself had
his mind been clear.
A SAFE CRACKED.
The big iron safe in the office of ITar
wood & Curtis, feed dealers, was crack?
ed by burglars some time lnst night,
but as far a* can be learned the In?
truders got no hooty.
This Is the second time the new
building of this firm on the railroad
near Twenty-eighth street has been en?
tered by burglars in the past month.
The men who did the business last
night evidently knew what they were
about, and It is believed that they are
the same ones who cracked the safe of
Frank Dennle, tho pawnbroker, but
were frightened off before they could
open the inner safe door, behind which
was $^,000 worth of jewelry and $050 In
Harwood & CurtW safe was success?
fully opened last night. The combi?
nation handle was pried off, and In the
hole was Inserted the charge of dyna?
mite, which did the work. There was
no money In the safe, nnd Messrs. Har?
wood & Curtis have not missed any
To get In the building the burglars
prized open the metal fire door nnd the
inner wooden door With a crowbar.
The first time the place was robbed
was on the night before the circus, but
it is not believed that professionals did
this Job. The Intruders carried off a
revolver, several coats, some office
fixtures and a lot of postage and reve?
nue stamps, but did not attempt to
crack the safe.

tim tomorrow. The prisoner appeared
