By United Press. 1 Petersburg, Va., Sept. 13. Ex-Gov. Wm. E. Cameron, of Petersburg, Va., an able and influential Republican, has written a letter to W. S. Dashiell, Esq., announcing his withdrawal from tho Republican party. His letter is a par ticularly strong one and in it he says: 'I have been taught by the events of eighteen months past that men of our antecedents and convictions can no no pledge as too solemn to be broken. I cannot lend myself to the oppression of my people and if there is no political organization which meets the full measure of onr approval, we can at least leave that which violates our every idea of right and sentiment. Not pre suming to set up for any other man or set of men a standard of duty, and willing to concede to every ono el?e that freedom of thought and action I have always claimed for myself, my resolve, founded on u. desire to be true to myself and my country, is to refuse all sympa thy or co-operation with the republican party in the crusade against this sec tion which it now espouses and under the leadership to which it submits. the rjubhc lfo and services or Senator Vance.

If in addition, he should ask the Progressive Farmer to publish his bill which provides for giviug the farmers a direct saving of an average of 47 per cent upon all im plements, clothes, window glass, and almost everything else he needs, this bill of itself and his explanation of tho relief it would bring directly to the far mers, would speak " trumpet-tongued" in favor of his retention in the honorable position which he fills with such credit to himself and such honor to the com monwealth; and where he stands as the ablest and most devoted champion of the rights of the people, particularly of the farming population. Beyond these things and the presenta tion of his views at length upon the stump where all the people can hear him, we do not think Senator Vance can make his position more clearly un derstood.
