SUBSCRIBERS nro earnestly re? quested to observe the date printed on thoir addrcHR Blips, which will keep thorn at nil timoB posted its to tho date of tho expiration of their sub? scription. Prompt and timely nttontion to this roquost wilt savo all parties a great deal of annoyance. lion. W. A. Jones, Congress? man from tho First Virginia District, who is acandidato bo foro tho primary to bo hold on September 7th for tho nomina? tion for United States Sonutors from this State, spoke in the United States Court room here on Monday night. There was quito a number of the citizens of the Gap present to henr Mr. Jonen Bpoak, ami they gave him an attentive hearing. The Con grossman from the First Dis? trict, who was introduced by our townsman, Mr. R.l).Raker, in a good talker, and us soon as introduced to his audience too): up Senator Martin's < whose sent in the United Slates Senate he desires to occupy) record from the time he (Martin) first boenmo a public servant, and discussed it in the most scath? ing manner down to the pres? ent time. According to Mr. Jones not one good thing has the Senior Senator from Vir? ginia done nil these years he bus been in the Senate. After discussing Senator Martin's record in the Semite he paid his respect to tho Democratic Or ganiiation of the State, and characterized it as the most rotten thiug in existence, and wo must admit, that if it is half us rotten as Mr. Jones says it is, it is some rotten. Every menu thing that the Democratic party bus done in the State he laid at the door of Mr. Martin. Ho told how corrupt the organization wan in Norfolk county; how they hail voted dead men in elections down there and had done all manner of mean things, which he also laid at the door Senator Martin. He failed to tell of anything he had ever done to prevent mich corruption, if in fact, it exists. Mr. Jones in for Mr. Jones, and he wants to go to the United States Son? ate bad?bo bad that he is will? ing to disrupt tho Democratic party in tho Stute, if neces? sary, to accomplish his pur? pose. We fail to boo where? in Mr. Jones would make a better Senator than Mr. Mar tin has mudu, and are, there? fore, unable to recommend him to our readers. Think how happy some men are with nothing to do but fish, A Washington politician de? clares they are going to make a Presidont in Congress this sum? mer. Champ Clark says he can't imagine who it will be. Amateur writers whose nrti tides have been rejected are convinced that thorois a inaga sine trust. By going ahead and doing thingH Woodrow Wilson,in the opinion of other candidates for the democratic nomination for pi-esidont is taking n mean ad? vantage of them. England is to have insurance against eiokness and lack of employment. That i? the kind of insurance to talk about. The victim may havo to get* sick inj order to profit by it, but he doesn't havo to die to boat it. j 31-00 .BO .20 Little Dolaware now loads the Union in something else besides being tho first State to nign the Declaration of Independence. Her namesake is the fastest battleship in the navy. An oxchango says that Eng; land has 11,500 ships engaged in foreign trade, Germany has abovo 200, Japan has nearly 1,000, while the United States has but nine nil told similarly engaged. It seems that thoro was enough graft in Mexico to make some of our graft experts look like amateurs. For instance, one-half the toacherson the pay roll of the department of educa? tion could not be found, but somebody had called regularly for their salaries. Tho mnn who lets his back yard bo filled with rubbish, who does not clean out Ids cellar, and who lets Iiis front yard go to weeds, has no right to sing of the "New Jerusalem," pearly gates and golden streets.? Clinch Valley News. In reporting the doings of tho Senatorial Primary candidates one of our exchanges says: '?Tito Martin-Swanson, Jones Glass vaudeville companies gave Bevern) most, spirited per? formances. The latter company iiad only two members of it present, but what it lacked in numbers is made up in vehem? ence." The Southwest Virginia Ag? ricultural and Live Stock Asso? ciation has put out an attrac? tive catalogue of its Great Dis? trict Fair, to bo held at Rod ford September 0, 7 and 1011, Tho catalogue LOntnins the official premium list, tho rules and regulations governing tho fair ami other interesting information. Fourteen fraudulent fire in? surance companies were raided in Philadelphia tile other day. The nominal president of one of them was an office boy of nine? teen years, whose pay was $5 the week. This company had client* all over the country, and had an income of more than ?27,000 the mouth, which went into the pocket of unscrupulous men who used the office boy to sign papers for them. Justice ought to be very severe on an insurance thief. There is no meaner thief.?R i o h in o n d Times Dispatch. BIDS REJECTED. Norton, Vit., July 31.?At a meeting of of the board of su? pervisors for Wise county it was decided to reject all bids for macadam to be used on the new roads and to re advertise bids, which will he opened on August 2:lrd. This plan was decided on because there was little competition on the former bidding and the bids were thought to be high. The mac? adam for which lads are sought will be for fifty miles of the new roads. The Virginia Press Assooia ciation has gracefully and mer? itoriously complimented Mr. Wolter F.. Addison, editor of tho Nows, by electing him pres? ident of the association for the ensuing year. While the writor doos not know the now presi? dent personally, he does know him by reputation and very favorably. Prior to his connec ncotion with the Lynohburg paper as editorial writer, Mr. Addison was engaged in nows papor work at Puluski and in Roanoke, and beforo entering journalism practiced law, n profession for which he was specifically educated. He has "made good" in journalism, however, and is one of tho most forceful and versatile writers on the Virginia press.
