AOCOMAC CODRT HOUSE, VA. Saturday, August 12,1005. Intered st tte Postoffloe st Acoomsc C. H. Va., st teoo.d-elasi matt-*. The plan of primary election adopted by the County Committee and the judges selected to hold it, which appear in another column, will receive the endorsement of thc peo? ns, of the county geuerally. Thc plan is for the most part the same as recommended by the State Uhuinnan amt the judges selected to hold the primary* are men of too high charac? ter, whoever their preference may be among thc candidates, for any one to question, that the election will be fairly held, and that the votes will be counted as cast. Indeed in the selec? tion of the judges their names were suggested by parties favoring differ? ent candidates and satisfactory to friends of all of them. At least it cannot be said by thc friends of Sena tor Martin, that the County Commit? tee, a majority of whom favor the election of Governor Montague as United States Senator, did not give them a square deal in the selection ot judges, as about an equal number of them are for Montague and Martin. It matters not though if all of them are for either of these candidates. No one will read the Ult and will say that he does not believe, that the rep? utation of Accomac for fair elec? tions will not be sustained on the 23d inst. The County Committee of North? ampton was not so liberal in the set lection of its judges of election. The supporters of Mr. Martin, wc are ad? vised by a leading citizen of that county, were in thc majority on that committee and the judges selected by them for the most part are Martin men, whether purposely or not. ot course, we don't know. We have not seen the list and do not doubt that thc judges are suitable nun, but foi thc sake of appearances, at least, would it not have been better, if tin friends of Mr. Montague had beet consulted in the matter? Hon. William L. Royall, one of th* ablest lawyers in the State, in a speed at Newport News last Saturday, gav' some reasons why he would vot against Senator Martin and in th course of his remarks said: "I abhor Mr. Martin's politics. T my mind he believes in boss rule an the system of ring and machine pol: tics. I believe that if you elect hil United States Senator we shall hav another Quay and another Platt i Virginia. Nay, more, I believe thei has never been such a political bos as he will be, and boss rule and rin politics mean such a condition < things as is being now investigated! the grand jury in Richmond. Ti frauds which that body is now n covering were operated by the friem of Thomas S. Marlin. The men wi stuffed the Richmond ballot boxes a all friends and supporters of Thom S. Martin. The last one of them w vote for him on the 2_d day of August If Mr. Royall is right a great dang threatens us and every citizen shou weigh well the matter before he eas his vote at the Primary on August _j Many citizens in every section of t Commonwealth concur with >' Royall in his views. The Republicans in convention Roanoke this week adopted a pl form and nominated Judge L. Lewis as the standard bearer of th party. The platform, of course, \ along the usual lines, in support every measure of the National ministration, past, present and fut and denunciatory generally of ev part taken by Democrats in the aili of the government and particularly the State, with an especial appeal for support of those who may be dissa fled as to the way in which our r. lie schools, the liquor traflic and < ter business is being conducted. ' nominee, Judge Lewis, is a str candidate and will doubtless c mand the entire support of his pa but that he will draw enough v from the Democratic ranks to danger the success of the Demoei party in the next election, whoi the nominee may be, of course no believes. The Convention, was vcrtised as "lily white,'' but it not altogether of that color, colored brother made one of nominating speeches in favor Judge Lewis. The joint debate between Ser Martin and Governor Montague not take place at Rocky Moun last Monday, as was expected. Martin, as usual "was iu the han his friends" and declined to ai the challenge of Mr. Montague, cause they would not permit hil do so. Comment is unnecessary, haps, as the people of the State erally believe in "fair play" and arrive at the conclusion that Martin's friends either believed b not the ability to meet him or disposed to take some undue a tage of the Governor. The however, was not the "big 3 day" which was expected. Both speeches and the audience was equally divided. The grand jury investigate late primary election in Rici has entered upon the last stage work, which will, it is now eon! ly predicted, result in from to seven indictments and a primary. It is now said that tl port will show that there WM in three or more precincts. W they were of magnitude suffieit change the general result i known. LTpon this questioi doubtless depend whether or nt City Committee will order a primary. 8 Kl IV it u ia io re as ill er lld it id h. lr. at at L. til res of ad? ore (ry lirs in the tis iub >y_ Ihe ong om rty, otes en atic ever one ad was One the of lator did t on Mr. ds of :cept be n to per gen must Mr. e had were dvan day, lartin made about DEnOCRATIC PRIMARY.

In 1894, after a careful study of tbs situation, a Christian Training School for Girls was opened at Blackstone, and about $80,000 has been expended in the purchase of a campus of twenty-five acres and in the erection of a massive brick building equipped with all the modern appliances of Lighting, Heating, Sanitation. Tbe purpose of the founders was declared to be to give "THOROUGH INSTRUCTION UNDER POSITIVE CHRISTIAN INFLUENCES AT THE LOWEST POSSIBLE COST." I?_tr_otloe_:?This purpose has been carried out. Thorough instruction has been given, and the Blackstone student.!, in addition to the regular instruction given in Seminaries, have received Normal training, all applicants for diplomas being required to take both Theoretical and Practical Pedagogy, including actual teaching in the Model School. The Blackstone certificate or diploma is recognized by educators as meaning what it says, and about five hundred teachers have shown the practical value of the work of the school. Ch-.rm.-er:?But at Blackstone, character is regarded as the student's most pre cious possession, and boarding school life is known to be a critical time in the formation of character. The greatest aim of the faculty is to direct and stimulate the development of the character of the students committed to their care. Direct contact of the student with the teacher is one of the greatest benefits of the school life, and hence the faculty at Blackstone all live in the building with the girls, and meet them not only in the class-room, but in every relation of the school life. The atmosphere of the school is wholesome, inspiring, and uplifting, and the influences are positively Christian. Coatx?The cost is less than at any other school in the State of equal grade. One hundred and fifty dollars ($150) per session pays for Board, Laundry, Medical Attention, and Tuition in all departments except Music and Elocution, which subjects are taught at correspondingly low rates. It has been the aim from the beginning to maintain a student body sufficiently large to give to parent* the benefit of low rates for first-class instruction, but not Uki large for the Principal and his helpers to know each student and to give herindividual care. This result han been attained. If you want your daugh? ter to have thorough instruction under positive Christian influences at the lowest possible cost, write for catalogue to JAMES CANNON, Jr., A. M., Blackitone. Va. l-^For the next session, twenty scholarships, worth 175.00 each, will be given to yoong ladies who are unable to meertho full expenses of the school, but who are suffi? ciently anxious for an education to be willing to assist thu housekeeper iu thc cart of -M. dining-room.
