RICHMOND NEWS ANDJQSSIP Serious Opposition to Democrats in Halifax and Louisa County. DEATH OF AGED CITIZEN Sir. 11. HI. smll? Nr., I?n?*C!? A*ri?y? Ho Wh*?W?I1 Known Invoiitor (ioocUlwnd hcbnoi BIu?t?llc l?ecld? cd In Fttvor ot l.ndies nntl Appnnl Rot J.llicly to lio Tnkcu?Norfolk cuuipuny. (Special to Virginian-Pilot.) Richmond, October 26.?State Chair? man J. Taylor Ellyson to-duy received visits from a number ot politicians rep? resenting districts where the final re? sult is thought to bo in considerable doubt. Long and earnest conferences ?wore held, the situation in each section being gone over with care. Ills callers -wore County Chairman Oogblll, of Caroline; Mr. John R. Ed? munds, of Halifax; Mr. James L. Shelton, Democratic nominee of Louisa county, and Mr. D. JH. Power?, Jr., Democratic nominee of Caroline coun? ty. In Halifax tbc situation is a mixed one, and while the Democrats expect to ?win, they will probably not have an easy thing of It. The Democratic candidates are Messrs. James P. Lacy, of Scoitsburg and R. J. Tuck, of South Boston. Their opponents aro S. B. lCeesec, of Rlcc villc, and W. H. Burgess, of Rice's, both Independents; H. Clay Harris, of Houston, a. negro Republican, and John S. Owen, a negro Republican, of South Boston. The BltUH.tlon, it will ho seen from the above, 1b very much complicated, and with the vole so badly cut up it Is difficult to mnlte un accurate predic? tion of the result. Messrs. Lacy and Tuck have a strong following in their district, however, and are making a fine fight. The address of Attorney General Montague a few days ago Is thought to have done considerable good. Mr. .Tames L. Shelton, tho Louisa nominee, talked over the condition of affairs In his county, which he evident? ly regards as quite serious. He Is op 7tosed to B. P.. Mills, an Independent Democrat, and Dr. J. B. Anderson, n Prohibitionist. The] latter will probably not be n fac? tor In the contest to any considerable extent, but Mr. Mlllrt has a good fol? lowing, and bis friends are making a stout fight. The Caroline fight, also, Is a hot one, ?with considerable doubt surrounding Die result. Mr. Y). B. Powers, Jr.. the regular nominee, ^s opposed by Mr. K. E. Pitts, a leading Republican, Mr. Pitts ie> a man of considerable wealth antl In? fluence. Ho is making a great fight, but ? the Democrats are thoroughly j aroused, and will make a great effort to win. No additions have been made recently to the list of speakers appointed by the State Committee, and it it; most likely that there will not lie any more named. OLD CITIZEN DEAD. Mr. IT. M.

The Richmond Times of yesterday says: i The Department of Agriculture is deeply Impressed with tho possibilities of, apple-raising In Virginia. It is be? lieved Hint there Is no industry which j can be undertaken in the State with assurance of better or safer returns. I i Commissioner Kolner spent Monday j In the great fruit belt of Virginia, or j rather that portion of It in Roanoke county, known as tho Hack Creek coun |try. The Commissioner brought back specimens of as fine apples as one ever see:-, and says that the varieties repre? sented? Albemarlo Pippin, the York Im? perial, lien Davis, winesap and cannon ?grow better In tho soil of the Virginia belt than anywhere else in the world. lio visited the Diamond Orchard Company's orchard, which is situated near Salem- This orchard, containing 45.000 trees, is the largest In the United States cast of the Allcghanles, and In eight years Will yield an average of 200. 0t"i bushels every year. I The orchard of Mr. M. G. McClung. I jthe Fcrgusson orchard. Howe's orchard | and Wertz's orchard were nlso visited by the commissioner. On Mr. Wertst's place a tree, probably fifty years old.1 j was pointed out to Mr. K?lner, w ho was told that It had real-zed at least $1.000 to the owner. East year seventy-two bushels of apples were picked from this tree and sold for $t a. bushel. One apple orchard in Roanoke county last year netted the owner $7,000. This year the crop Is held at JS.flfi? or JO,000. Tho peculiarly fine flavor of the ap? ples grown in this section of Virginia is recognized nbroad. Agents who come from Note fork, St. Louis and olli?r markets say It is the finest fruit of tlu kind in the Fnlted States; Even Norfh Carolina, an adjoining competing Stnte, admits the superior adaptability of Vir giia soil for apple-raising. An agent representing a North Carolina syndicate Is now negotiating with Roanoke coun? ty men for the purchase of 700 acres of land, which they propose to devote to apple-raising. Mr. K?lner regards it ns a remarkably fine field for agricultural investment The land sells for from $10 to $20 un acre. Not one acre in two hundred, he says. Is In orchards. The commissioner found that tho re? sults obtained as above Indicated were under a very poor system of care on the part of the farmers, as a rule. They were In Ignorance of how best to culti? vate their orchards. He noticed, too, that Insects are de? vastating the crop to a very appreciable extent. The insects made their appear? ance a year or two ago. and have be? come more numerous. The farmers, be said, did not know how to destroy the pest. Spraying would. In a short time, rid the orchards of the tiny depreda? tors. In this connection M. K?lner de? plored the fact that funds are not avail? able, for the publication of bulletins, which would be of the greatest value to the farming clement of the State. PETEKftnUltG.
