The Small-Pox Scare.
There has been much excitsment
in Pig Stone (iap recently over noth?
ing. There has been bill one iso?
lated case of small-pox in the town
and there have been many opinions
expressed, pro and con, as to whether
it was really small pox. measles,
chicken-pox, or roseola. Dr. Kunkel
pronounced it as such, and no one has
any moral right to dispute his opin?
ion unless they are competent to
judge.
There is no necessity, however, for
the officials of the town to get un?
duly excited, and quarantine against
towns without just cause, as they did
ill the case of Bristol. There has
been no small-pox there, nor any
signs of it.
From the latest accounts, the pa?
tient suffering from this disease is
practically well, and there is abso?
lutely no danger to travelers.
If any excitement is newded, why
not get up another mad dog scare.
It would certainly give those suffer?
ing dann Envi something to think
about; ami save the town much un
warranted injury, and timid people
loss of sleep.
The Wise County Bar andthe Cir?

No doubt the Dar of Wise County
>bi.nl< that who they declare for as
their preference for ?Jndge of this
Circuit will he the man who will get
tthe place; but 3* the Bar of this
^County is not altogether the district
iin toto, there is liable to be quite a
.diversity of opinion in regard thereto.
If our representative from this legis
lathe district is the man the people
think he is, he we will, at the proper
tjfiie, advocate the man whom he
(L)i1 * is best qualified for the posi?
tion and ifuyc no regard whatever,
?0 the action jOi the Wise County
|5ar. It \h n<?t very likely that such
will be the case, but the $ar may
<take up some man wholly unqualified
ifor the position, and it Irvine abides
;bv its decision then we will have, or
.rather likely to have, a man who is
jjoj competent for the place.
'JTliu Wj^e County Dar, no doubt,
rrfituhs it i~ hi\?. ruler of the County,
hut it represents a yen' small pro?
portion of the thought, or anything
else, and 110 matter what action they

Roman's Influence.
"Vlie nob'U^jt sentiments of honor
{Uttd of chivalry flue directly to
rtlie influence of a iiubfcgood woman.
In times of distress, when ,tljw ?.oM,
and clammy hands of adversity are
? clutching at our throats; when the
?future is a yawning abyss and no hope
.?p(wu?;s upon the horizon, then it is
4 hat <Hw ii^j.uencc of a noble woman
;is felt, and oy< .chaos and darkness
?^Jiope sees a star." fjiQVe is the
greatest gift vouchsafed -to kit
Mian race. Without its sublime and
cheering influence the world would
!be an indescribable medley of the
sinost degrading und corrupt, influence.
W.licn a beautiful young girl, just
iin the first blush of a glorious wom?
anhood, stands at the altar a fair
young bride, the wretch upon whom
this scene does not have effect, and
awaken those dormant sentiments
nti,yt are in the heart of the most de?

until old age has whitened the once
jetty black, or golden tresses, thin
fair young bride ban been the lmj?r,
tlie star and solace of this man's life.
It iis indeed a beautiful romance?
this union of two noble souls?and so
long as our beautiful marriage c#re
raony exists, the poet will always
have a theme for bis Hong.
In tins material age, where inonty i

sentiments have been permitted to

art only sleeping. Thc occasion,aiid
two hearts thnt bent in unison to the
strains of a glorious love is all that is
wanted to awaken them. While

Improper Influence of Legislators.
The Richmond Timr< of Sunday
contains a letter from a Mr. R.
V. Ilutchcson, in which lie intimates
that Railroads contributed funds
during the recent campaign to help
elect certain candidates for thc Su?
preme Court Bench, and a certain
candidate for I*. S. Senator. Fn com?
menting on this letter, the Tiuus
says:
We feel perfectly sure that our
correspondent is entirely in error in
supposing that the railroads have
directly or indirectly interfered or
.attempted to interfere with tin1 p)ec
tion of judges of our Court of Ap?
peals, hut we arc informed that there
has been improper interference as to
thc election of some members of the
legislature, for the purpose ??f secnr?
illg thc election of a certain candi?
date to the United States Senate.
[Jut from the information which we
have, wc think our correspondent
? Iocs injustice in thinking that the
improper interference came from
those officers responsible for the
management of the railroad. We
feel sure from what, we hava learned
that that interference came <>u\?
from one of the subordinates of the
railroads, and was wholly unauthor?
ized.
Wcarc informed that a contribu?
tion made hy certain of tho railroads,
intended for thc campaign fund of
the Kxecutivc Committee for legiti?
mate expenses, not one half ever
ireached the Chairman, but was dis?
pensed hv this subordinate railroad
official, in furtherance of the candi?
date for the United State? Senate of
his personal choice, and that i ii ir
was done in disregard of the wishes,
if not thc direct orders, of Inn super?
iors.
Wc have been shown letters from
some of the high railroad officials,
denouncing any improper distrjbu
tian of the funds. One of thorn says:
'?I understand that some claim is
made that members of thc Legisla?
ture arc to be influenced in their
choice in caucus for a nominee by
thc fact tl;;jt they received aid dur?
ing the campaign. So interference
was intended as to j,tye *.d/ojcc of
United States Senator, and there js.
absolutely no obligation whatever
on*' way or the other on thc part of
any successful candidate for the)
Legislature cd' Virginia by reason of
his having been assisted in. the cam?
paign, to favor one or another can?
didate for the United States Senate."
A nothcr says:
'?You arc authorized to say that
no such use of any of the funds was
contemplated or authorized, uipjthat
there is no obligation on the pari ofj
any member of the Legislature for or
against any candidate for the United j
States Senate."
It will be interesting to learn from
this subordinate why he failed to de?
liver all of the funds to the Chair-I
man of thc Democratic patty, and
whether he intended that any one
receiving front him any part of that
fund, should believe thajt j't was giv
en in the interest ol any particular
candidate for the United States
Senate.
The people arc entitled to know
with perfect accuracy the influence
that have been brought to bear upon
some of their representatives. They
can then better judgfi of jh/.*ir acts
and motives. ?
It is plain that the representatives,1
who receive any of the funds retained
by the subordinate, are under no ob?
ligation whatever to that subordi?
nate or to his favorite for the United
States Benote; for they have been
deceived if they were Joi 1 to believe
that the funds were raised or youtH*
bntcd for the benefit of any special
candidate.

ing and mortifying condition of
things, but it is made that the peo?
ple of Virginia may be put on their
guard, uyd learn the potent*v of

THE PRESS.
Judges and Their Pay.
It is understood that in his forth?
coming message Ooveruor McKinnev
will urge the Oenernl Assembly to
increase the salaries of Circuit and
Supreme (loiirl judges.
We believe that Virginia is now
in condition to warrant her paying
these officers salaries more nearly
commensurate than present salaries
with the value of their services; but
we would prefer to have the matter
of the revision of the criminal laws
and administration thereof consid?
ered as a whole. To this end it
would be well toset the proper com?
mittees of the two houses to work in I
the right direction at the beginning
of the session. The people would he
very much disappointed indeed if the
General Assembly were to meet and
adjourn this winter without doing
anything in this direction more than
to increase /fye salaries of judges.
If, how.evei, along wi,ih increased pay
fur judges there went laws itupro.v
ing the administration of criminal
justice in Virginia, and economizing
its cost, there would be general pub?
lic approval.
The people of Virginia are not dis?
posed to be niggardly in the matter
of salaries to their officials; but out
finances for many years past have not
warranted us in paying more than
we have been paying. Now, howev?
er, there is prospect that we shall be
able to be more liberal, especially if,
as there is every reason to believe,
the expenses of the administration of!
criminal justice can be largely reduc?
ed and at the same time the certainty
of punishment of criminals greatly
increased by revising our laws and
practice in the light of our own ex?
perience, and in that of neighboring
States which have a population sini
j ilar to ours.
An effort to raise the pay of judges
j if set on {nut independently of' the
effort to improve our criminal laws,
might fail: but if made along with
reform measures, we believe, would
1 >c suI'e to go through.
Now, while the public mind is
awake to the desirability of legisla?
tion on the general subject is the
golden opportunity to secure the
! changes which we nerd, and which
havc^'heen recommended by some ol
I the most eminent and disinterested
members of the bar of Virginia,?

Fact. Fancy toid the Tariff
Gov. McKinley attributes all th<<
j ills we have or have had or think we
have had and a great many
more tlj;it he thinks we are going to
have to the expectation of tariff re?
form bv the incoming Gongres*.
The Governor, in his Boston speech
last night, drew a fearful picture of
the ruin and despair of tlif> country
if his sacred tariff js "rjniaM'.oip'with.
Then he turned to another picture
and dramatic/illy asked the people to
gaze on that. Here i^ th* < fovarnop's
gorgeous panorama ol prosperity un?
der the undisturbed .McKinley regime:
??What would be more welcome to
the business interest of the country,
jto the wage-workers of the country
and evtffv frn,e American interest
than the assurance thai rbie < Jgnaress
w ould adjourn without meddling vyith
our jieiijrjf i pj legislation? What a
sight of relief u-oej.j I/-! fj.'lt in every
part of the country. Wh.a! pou?
dence would be created, what viral?
i/ing force would be infused in every
department of human activity, what
cheer would enter the homes ol labor,
Such an assurance would bring glad
tidings of great joy to the millions .?t
! American homes whose occupants sec
the winder coming, the savings of
yesterday going Gl gone, and no work
or wages in sight."
'J'his is very beautiful, but unfor?
tunately it hicks one f'Ssenfja] deinen!
?fact. One would scarcely have
j given the author of a tariff bill credit
for such a poetie fancy as evolved
that glowing spectacle ol peaoo and
I he t rouble with the ' Jovernor is
that he fables on one side and fancies
on- t lie ol her. He at i rihutes all t lie
distress of the country to the Tear of
tarjljf legislation, and presumes that il
fear \\eic lou.o'/ed all the embarrass?
ment of industry would j.^- It
must be admitted that this allege!
fear only i?aiua into play with the
Democratic victory of ) ?*.?;? by lybich
tariff reform was made possibly. ) el
tin" financial troubles, which culmi?
nated last summer, had begun to be
felt more than two year* before, or
when the .McKinley tariff law was
just beginning to exercise its beuefi
ppnf iniliieuce.
The tU'-ii shock to the financial
woild was tho failure of ?hc Jlaring
Uro*,, (London. Everybody should)
know t> ? cuusif> of that collapse.
They went to South America, H'bt?i'C
millions of British capital had been
sunk in wildcat enterprises. A great j
wave of Kuropean speculation had
swept over this country during the
same period. Vast amounts of mon?
ey were invested in North American
n3 weil ao $Oirth \merican securi
ties. Domestic enterprise, sjiin/nlo?< il
by foreign competition overreaclfeu
itself. ^When the South American
collapse came, precipitating the
downfall of the Barings, the whole
financial world was shaken. There
was a great seaming of the surface,
poriuhss disappeared like the bub?
bles, which too often iluij jj'cr?5
Then there was a settling, U dos-'
ing up of gaps. The Europeans
needed gold. They sent our securi?
ties back to us. They demanded
gahl, gold, gold until this country
became alarmed. There seemed to
be no cn.l to this outward How of the
basis of on? currency. The perni?
cious influence of the sijyor pufcha^
law was felt in this development of
the crisis. But it was too late lo
save the country entirely from the
effects of all the various sources of
depletion. The alarm continued to
spread. Savings were withdrawn
from, banks. This is always the last
step jit (lie pri/gr'j&g .of a crisis.
Hundreds of banks closatl their
doors, manufactories shut down from
sheer inability to find money to pay
their employees and to buy materials.
The crisis last summer was a
financial crisis, its progress and
causes are easily traced. The recov?
ery is hound to be gradual. People
do not recover from typhoid fever in
a day. Por months now not a daily
newspaper has been issued that djt]
not announce some hank reopened,
some manufactory resuming opera?
tions. Slowly luj| surely the coun?
try is regaining its normal financial
condition.
Gov. McKinley and the Republi?
can sophists cannot mislead the peo?
ple. They have learned to study
economic phenomena for themselves.
Now that the silver-purchase law is
repealed, the tariff will be reformed
to shift sonic of the unjust burdens
front the people, and then there will
I?' no bar to complete recovery.?

The Tariff.
Washington, Nov. 21.?The new
Democratic tariff l>ill was given oot
to the public this morning, and its
provisions till every expectation of
those who have predicted that it
would he n radical measure of reform.
In many respects it is a surprise even
to the Democratic members ol Con?
gress, and it is unprecedented in
manv of its provisions.
The free list is of that liberal scope
sufficient to satisfy thc most radical
advocates of reform, and the repudi?
ation of the principles of reciprocity,
which has been the pride of the Re?
publicans and the bone noir ol thc
Democrats for a number of years, is
decisive and emphatic. Thus, the
tariff hill, in addition to the reforms
it makes in the custom, laws, will
necessitate immediate readjustment
of treaties with those South Ameri?
can countries which enjoy practical
or theoretical reciprocity with the
irreal American republic of the North?
ern hemisphere.
The bounty on sugar, which was
to be so promptly repealed, is, in?
stead, to be repealed by easy gradua?
tions, and will not reach its conclu?
sive effect until after the end of the
J present century*

Editor Post:
Andrew Jackson and Andy John?
son have enjoyed much prestige by
reason of their strong will power and
Stubbornness of opinion, but to use a
hit of expensive slang, neither of
them are in it with Presideul < 'leva
land., who has beyond the shadow of
a doubt proven himself, whether for
good or evil only time .-an decide to
a certainty, up to this time to he the
most forceful President the country
has had. The new tariff bill, which,
if it should become a law, would be
several shades nearer free trade than
any of its numerous predecesosrs, is
hut another instance of his lorceful
ness as well as bis success in getting
inen to vote against what was stt|
posed to he tlodr opinion and inclina?
tions. Mr. Cleveland's wishes have
in several known instances overrid?
den those of members of hi- party on
the committee, both as to what is in
the new bill as well as what is left
out ol it.
A very strong fight was made by
Democrats to keep a number ol arti?
cles which have been put on the free
list on fhe dutiable list, even if the
duties were reduced, ami particularly
as to coal and iron ore, several mem?
bers of the committee would gladly
have acquiesced hut President Clcyer
land said they must go on the free
list, and they went. Another in?
stance was the personal income tax,
\\ \)\q\) the eoiinnitiee had at one time
informally decided should bo hudlpl:
cd in the tariff bill. Mr. Cleveland
said no, and the bill is now ready
j without any personal income tax, al
[thrugh it docs tax the earnings of
corporations. These things arealike
vvondeifuj to 'be. friends and the en?
emies of the President, and he lacks
neither either in Congress or our.
r).'hi.-; particularly true of the House,
where member^ of bis party !?''!! i'T!'

him. and in some cases even jlto to i lie
extent oj abusing him, and tlion
when t he time comes vote as j hoy

common explanation of this is "pat?
