A number of tho ettie, end coontie
in the State ait inp upon the sugges?
tion of Chairman Kllyson, it is grati?
fying to learn, have assumed the ex
pense of the State primary to be held
August __d and the most of them, it is
believed, will reach a favorable eon
elusion in the matter. Accomac is
included in the list of those which
have responded favorably and all
should be willing to bear their part of
the expense of a primary. This method
of making nominations is for the
benefit of the people,was adopted be
Osm. of their demand tor it and they
will not allow it to he a failure, if the
eounty committee in each county will
do their duty in the matter by giving
them the opportunity to bear the ex?
pense of it. Thc necessary sum will
soon be in hand in each county if they
will pass around the hat asking for it.
A challenge sent to Senator Martin
by Governor Montague to meet him
in joint debate at Manchester to-night
has been declined and the indications
aro that Mr. Martin docs not desire
to meet him on any other occasion.
Mr. Martin, in fact, says that he has
arranged and outlined his campaign
and prefers to carry out his own ar?
rangements and speak at times and
places ot his own selection without
reference to the appointment of others.
He should have Bald, perhaps, that he
does not desire to have the people en?
lightened through a joint debate as
to the issues in the present campaign,
or it may be is unwilling for the peo?
ple to judge between him and his op?
ponent and their respective claims for;
the office or realizes that he has mn
the ability to meet Mr. Montague
Discretion is sometimes the better
part of valor and Mr. Martin, doubt?
less, thinks it is in declining a joint
debate with his opponent at this time.
Seuator Thomas S. Martin and
Judge Samuel W. Williams addressed
a small crowd ot the voters of North?
ampton at Eastville, on Monday. In
regard to the speech of Senator Mar?
tin there is very little to report. It
was the same old speech and full of
the same extravagant claims of his
distinguished services to the State
which he is daily making throughout
the State. The speech of Judge Wil?
liams, though, was an able one and
worthy of the close attention and the
genuine applause it received. In
presenting his claim for the office of
Attorney-General he discussed the
school book question, declaring for
the single list, and took an advanced
position on the subject of better
schools and better pay for the teach?
ers. In the course of his remarks, he
stated, that his district gave the
largest Democratic vote in the elec?
tion last fall and as the only repre?
sentative from that district appealed
to the sense of fairness of the peoplt
of Northampton that his claim shoulc
be recognized. His speech was wt 1
received and,doubtless, made for hin
many supporters in that county.
Hon. William A. Jones in a lette:
recently given to the public says ilia
Senator Martinhasdeliberately claim
ed credit for work done by othe:
members of Congress. He otters evi
dence to show that Senator Danie
effected the settlement between Vii
ginia and the United States by whiol
we were relieved of tho payment o
millions of bonds held by the govern
ment; that Congressman Kixey intro
duced the bill for the payment o
navy-yard employees for overtim
during the Spanish War, and no
Senator Martin, although he allowe
the labor unions to thank him for it
and that the Jamestown Uxpositio
appropriation bill was the work t
Senator Daniel and not Senator Marti]
though the latter, through his friendl
claim the credit for thc same. On
extract from the letter of Mr. Jonesi
given below for the information of ot
readers-that in regard to the set th
ment of the debt between Virgin!
and the United States and a caren
reading of the same will show th.
he is not, as he claims, the "who
thing" in that matter but a very li
tie part of it. Mr. Jones says in par
One, if not the chief, claim to po
lie gratitude set up by Senator Ma
tin and his friends is that he il e
titled to the credit of having adjust*
the long standing claims between tl
United States and Virginia, and.
often has this absolutely noondle
assertion been reiterated, that the
are perhaps many people unacquaii
ed with the real facts who honest
believe it to be true. The credit f
this settlement is chiefly,if not wholl
due to Senator Daniel, but for whoi
affirm the whole question would be
open and unsettled today as it wash
a century ago. It is within my p
sonal knowledge that it was Senal
Daniel's brain which conceived a
worked out the plan by which th(
mutual claims were settled and nix
which the United States was found
be indebted to the State of Virgil
in the sum of ?5.50. It was Sena
Daniel who secured the consent of I
Appropriation Committee, of wh:
he himself was and is a member,
the passage of the resolution um
which the settlement was finally
fected. It was Senator Daniel \\
first secured the passage of that re
lution through the Senate as
amendment to one of the regular si
ply bills. Senator Martin neither c<
ceived the idea nor formulated 1
resolution and his connection withi
subject was entirely perfunctory,
did not require either initiatory
tlon or parliamentary knowledge ut
his part. The conception of the id
as well as the plan of settlement ii si
was Senator Daniells. All that Se
tor Martin did, or could have do
was to refer to the Commit tee on lie
lutions the resolution in the form
an amendment which Senator Dar
had the year before prepared and
erred to that committee, and the
adoption of which in the Senate he had
ecured. It failed of passage in the
louse, and hence the necessity for its
?eintroduction in thc Senate at its next
lession. Senator Daniel then being
n attendance upon the Constitutional
Convention, his colleague, Senator
Martin, again offered his (Daniel's)
imendment, an entirely perfunctory
[bing, lt will not be claimed, I think,
although I may underestimate the ca?
pacity of some of Senator Martin's
friends tor making claims for him,
that he secured, or could have secured,
the passage of thiH resolution through
the House of Representatives. To be?
come operative \i had, of course, to
pass both houses of Congress. And
yet in the face of these indisputable
facts it is claimed for Senator Martin,
if indeed, the claim has not actually
been made by him, that he and he
alone is entitled to the credit for this
settlement. There never was a more
groundless and imprudent claim.
This being,as Mr. Jones says, "one,
if not the chief, claim to public grat?
itude set up by Senator Martin and
Ins Mends" the voters of Accomac
surely will not feel that they are
under any obligation to support him
on that ground. Has bc done any?
thing in the way of securing appro?
priations for the First Congressional
Dirtrict to entitle him to the support
of its voters? Mr. Jones says not in
the following:
The hundreds ot thousands of dol?
lars which I have secured for the
water ways of my District during my
service in Congress (to say nothing
>f any other appropriations obtained
by me) and that, too, without the
slightest assistance from Senator
Martin, who is a member of the
Commerce Committee of the Senate
having special charge of river and
harbor appropriations, tell their own
story. 1 am entirely content that the
records of Congress shall speak for me.
Hut if it be thought that I have ac?
complished less than I should for my
constituents I trust I may never be
guilty of detracting from the accom?
plishments of any ol my colleagues in
>rder to add to thc sum total of my
