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

LEE BLACKSTONE SCHOOL FOR GIRLS.
?_.
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
