There is an evident purpose on the part of the Democracy in several more of the Soutbern States to follow the example of lxwisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina in the adoption of methods to restrict or j repress suffrage. In Alabama and North Carolina such a purpose is announced, and the only reason for delay is that the most effective and certain means can be adopted. There is an insincerity about the move? ment that is reprehensible. A shallow pretense is made that the object of the use I of constitutional measures to deprive a, Urge class of citizens of the exercise of suffrage, is to elevate and purify the suf? frage in those States. To the careful ob? server it is manifest that the sole purpose of the advocates of restricted suffrage is to perpetuate the power the political ma? chines that now control the states in ques? tion. Not only is it intended to deprive the Republicans of the South of all repre? sentation in State governments and the Congress of the United States, but its de? sign is to place all such power in the hands of a few, a preferred class, a ring. If there should be any doubt in the mind of any intelligent man as to the truth of this as? sertion we ask them to study the results of the so-called restrictive methods that have been employed in Louisiana, Missis? sippi and South Carolina. In those statt s the plans were claimed to be adopted to get rid of the ignorant and vicious vote. If that end las been attained, as shown by the results, ignorance and vice must have been rampant in those states; for there has been a reduction of about four fifths in the votes polled in them. To il? lustrate this we give the vote that wts cast in those three states in ISTti and the vote that was cast in 189S. The follow ing in the vote for 1870: States Rep. Dem. Totals. Louisiana.75,315 70,508 145,828 Mississippi.52,705 112,143 1?4.S4.S South Carolina 92,081 91,540 183,292 Totals.220,101 274,191 494,292. It has been estimated that in the tweniy-two years that have elapsed since 1870 that the population in those States has increased 1,750,000, which is equiva? lent to a voting population of about 350, 000. This would give in Louisiana, Mis sissippi and South Carolina about 650,000 males of voting age. To show how the poll of votes has fallen off since the new constitutions were adopted we give a table of the vote on November 8th, 189S : States Kep. Dem. Totals. Louisiana. 5007 27,(i2i) :;:;,2!)? Mississippi. 3573 23.S04 27,.'!77 South Carolina 2823 28,970 31,793 Totals.12,003 80,403 92,400 This shows that only about one-eighth of tie voting population, under the new order of affairs, is permitted or induced to vote in Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina. This looks much more like re? pressed than restricted snflrage and is a very serious menace to representative gov? ernment. It does not matter whether the voters are debarred from voting or are rendered too indifferent to go to the polls and vote, the evil none the less follows. - OBSTRUCTIONISTS. The Democrats in Congress are trying to defeat the treaty with Spain. They are the same men who precipitated the war and then failed to give proper aid to the Administration in carrying on the war. Refusing to back the Administration in its policy, they wanted to dictate how the war should be managed. After it had been successfully prosecuted they, for par tizan ends, began to criticise the way in which the war was conducted. Now they seek to obstruct and defeat the treaty with Spain for the purpose of embarrassing Mr. McKinley and crippling the Republican party. Every movement the Democratic party, through its leaders in Congress, has made in connection with the Ameri? can-Spanish war-has been ill advised, and in many instances unpatriotic. If the Democrats should succeed in de? feating the treaty, the men who vote to assist such a thing will deserve the con? demnation of all good citizens. Even Mr. Bryan has advised against such a course. Will his followers in Congress give his ad? vice proper consideration, or will they vote for a continuance of the war? A vote against the treaty will mean one against peace. There can be no question that the country desires peace and it is equally as certain that the Philippine question can be settled as well after the treaty of peace is ratified as before its acceptance. There are other reasons why there should be a speedy settlement of our troubles with Spain. The business interests of the coun trv demand it, and the volunteers in the army are anxious to be discharged and to return to their homes. In the face of such a strong sentiment in favor of the treaty.it is remarkable that so many Senators should be indifferent to the wishes of their constituents and reckless of the good of the country. OPPOSITION TO ADMINISTRATION. As the large majority of the people of Virginia were opposed to the late Span? ish war and arc opposed to the ratification of the Spanish treaty, it is gratifying to them that their two representatives in the United States Senate agree with them in respect of that tieaty and will do all they can to prevent its ratification.?The Alex? andria Gasette. Ti ne. The people of Virginia, we be? lieve, are overwhelmingly opposed to the unconditional ratification of the treaty.? Richmond Dispatch. It is also stultifying to these two Demo? cratic Senators from Virginia when it is known that they were, especially the senior Senator, howling advocates of the war with Spain,.though "the large major? ity of the people of Virginia were opposed to it." Then the Administration was op P tsed to war, if it could be honorably avoided. Of course the Senators from Virginia had to oppose the Administra? tion. Now the people of Virginia are for a ratification of the treaty, only the Dem? ocratic machine and a few of its followers opposing it. Again the Democratic Sena? tors who represent this State are misrepre? senting their people and opposing the treaty, because they must antagonize the Administration. This is modern Demo? cratic politics?to first find out what the Republican party is for, and then oppose it. -<?> Tin: Democratic Senators are wasting a great deal of breath, and time that should be occupied in looking after the welfare of the country, in discussing the expansion question. But the Democratic party is so Quixotic that its representatives in Con? gress are always hunting dangers that do not exist and raising issues that have no foundation. It was very proper in President Mc? Kinley to order a court-martial for Com? missary General Eagan. The conduct of General Miles toward the Commissary De? partment may have been improper, but the conduct of General Eagan before the War Investigation Committee was too coarse and vulgar to be tolerated. Tins country is in much greater danger on account of the Socialism that Mr. Bryan is preaching than the Imperialism he is denouncing. The one ism is now pres^ ent and was an important issue in 1S9G. The other ism is a myth with which Mr. Bryan is trying to frighten the people. Senator Bacon's Anti-expansion Speech shows that he is a statesman of "the whole hog or none" order.?Richmond Times. The speech indicates rather that the hog was killed in the wrong time of the moon, and, therefore, the bacon is disposed to shrink instead of expand. The? call it the "New Democracy," the "Reformed Democracy,*' the "Jeflerso man Democracy," the "Free Silver Dem? ocracy," and the "Anti-Imperialist Dem? ocracy." In 1900 it will be the "Disap? pointed Democracy." Alabama and North Carolina are now devising means to disfranchise the negro vote. It is thought they will tadopt con? stitutional measures similar to those of Louisiana. We heard a man say a few days ago he was opposed to annexingthe'Thilippians." So are we. Sentiment in New England. Philadelphia Press.] Senatorial elections in two New Eng? land States, Wednesday, gave conclusive proof of the popularity of the expansion policy in that neighborhood and in the Republican party. In Maine Senator Hale was re-elected, but on account of his attitude on the Phil? ippine question he was cut by a large number of the Republicans. The Repub? lican strength on joint ballot in the pres? ent Maine Legislature is 157, but Mr. Hale received only 111 votes, or 40 short of the total. A few of the latter number did not attend the session, but the most of those not voting were in their seats and refused to answer to their names, contenting them? selves by making a silent protest against Hale's re-electiou. And some of the Re? publicans who voted for him declared that they did so only because he was the regu? lar Republican candidate. A different scene was witnessed in Mas? sachusetts. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge has been one of the most outspoken advo? cates of the expansion policy. His atti? tude on the question has been known from the beginning to every man and woman in Massachusetts. He came be? fore the Legislature of that State for re? election on the same day Senator Hale went before the Maine Legislature. The Republican strength in the two houses of the Massachusetts Legislature is 198 and Senator Lodge received 190 of this number, or only eight votes short of the total, not an unusual number of absences in an elec? tion where there was no real contest. One solitary Republican member refused to vote for Mr. Lodge, and he doubtless measures pretty accurately the size of the anti-expansion sentiment in Massachu? setts. If a poll were taken in Maine and Mas? sachusetts on the expansion question Maine would give an emphatic indorse? ment to Senator lx>dge. As such a poll is not practicable these Senatorial elections can be taken as a fair gauge of popular sentiment on the subject of expansion. Wanted.

WHAT HAS RECENTLY TRANSPIKKD IN THE COUNTIES OF THIS SECTION. Judge W. H. Boiling and Mr. W. 13. Kegley of Wytheville have formed a part? nership for the practice of law. Miss Elisabeth Avers, a venerable aunt of ex-Attorney Geneia Rufus A.Avers,died in Wythe county on Monday of last week. On Tuesday night, the 24th inst.: the Third Annual Poultry Show at Bristol was opened. It will close tomorrow, the L'7th inst. Mis. Peggy Wampler died at her home near Rural Retreat, in Wythe county, one day last week at the advanced age of j ninety seven years. On Monday of last week a log rolled over Mrs. Burton in Buchanan county injuring her so severely that she is not expected to recover. The Hoard of Supervisors of Russell county has issued county bonds to the amount of $15,000. The money will be used to pay for building bridges and im? proving the county roads. Mrs. Charity Williams died at l>ebanon, Ya., at seventy three years of age. She had been a member of the Methodist church fur sixty three years, having united with that church when she was ten years old. A man by the name of Hankla made his escape from the jail of Smyth county, at Marion, on Wednesday of last week. He was confined for some petty offence, and had only four or five days more to serve. The Wytheville Enterprise announces that Messrs. Waller S. Poage and John C. and Kobert W. Blair have formed a law partnership to be styled Blair, Poage and Blair. The Messrs. Blair are sons of the late Capt. F. S. Blair, the eldest, Mr. John C. Blair, having been his fathers law part? ner for several years. The Board of Directors of the South, western Hospital tit Marion, Ya., recently cut down the allowance to the pastors of the different churches in that town for preaching at the asylum and other ser? vices rendered. The cut was from $75.<;0 per year, each, to $37.50. An indignant writer in the Marion News of the 20th inst. j scores the hospital authorities pretty se? verely. The writer gives some very dam? aging statistical information as to the man? agement of the institution. He says: 'Altogether the expenses for food, cloth? ing, medicine, whiskey, etc., was $18,630. 00, while for salaries, wages, expenses of Board and Executive Committee, the sum of $17,057.53 was spent.'" The writer then says. "A careful scrutiny of these figures is well calculated to provoke the inquiry, whether the Hospital is run for the hem lit of the patients, or the patients rum for the benefit of the Hospital." PRESIDENT M'KINLEY. All Fair Men Admit the Caution, Wis? dom and Prudence of His Course. Chicago ''Tribune" (Rcp.)l When any Republican defends the President some Democrats call him a time-server, a ilatterer ivho hopes to be rewarded. In pleasing contrast to all this abuse is the statement concerning the President made by Senator Gray in bis remarks at Wilmington day before yester? day. As a result of his intimate knowl? edge of the man he says#:? I belong to a different political party, but 1 should be false to my sense of jus? tice and to that pride which I feel as an American if I did not declare my confi? dence in the patriotism and purity of pur? pose of William McKinley. He is r.o usurper of power, no stranger to Ameri? can institutions, but one of the American people, called to his high office by their suffrages, and it would be strange indeed if he did not share to the fuilest extent in the love of our Constitution and the prin? ciples that underlie it. This is handsomely said. It is true. When the dust and smoke of the present conflict over the Philippines have cleared away and that question has ceased to be "in politics" nearly all men will admit cheerfully the caution, wisdom and pru? dence displayed by the President in deal? ing with the issues arising out of the war with Spain. He has moved too slowly to please some at the time. He has moved too rapidly to please those who did not want him to move at all. The final ver. diet will be that he advanced thoughtfully and judiciously, keeping even pace with the wishes of the people, waiting only to learn their will,and then executing it when he found out what it was.

Rochester, N. Y._. PERSONAL NOTES. Mr. Beveridge, the new Senator from Indiana, is a self-made man, and is: known among his friends us "the second Gar field " Bishop Potter, of New York, has the reputation among reporters as being the hardest man to interview in the Episcopal Church. Kussel 1 Sage was a warm supporter of Zachary Taylor, and recently said that his ideal American politician was Henry Clay. Queen Victoria, always an ardent ad? mirer of Lewis Carroll, has accepted a handsomely hound copy of the new bio? graphy of the author of " Alice in Won? derland." William M. Chase, the successful artist, was at one time so poor as to be able to eat only bread anil cheese. "Even my canvas and colors," he says, were supplied by my fellow students." Senator liawley was a classmate at Hamilton College of Charles Dudley Warner, with whom he was afterward associated on the Hartford ."Courant" to their early experience upon which both men atribute their success in life. Ambassador Choate, while in the Har? vard Law School in 1853, was one of three men appointed to debate against three others, when his colleagues both fell ill. Mr. Choate took the debate in hand alone and won it. Oddly enough, the subject was "The success of the war of 1812." While in Porto Rico General Miles needed an extra orderly, nnd a "green" volunteer from the West was appointed. When the General called him he replied, "Well, Miles, what is it ?" The stab" ex? pected a storm. Instead, the General smiled and answered, "Don't call me Miles. Call me 'Nels.' Miles is so for? mal." But the lesson was learned. Of the late Professor Henry Drummond, his friend < i. A. Smith says: "You met him everywhere, a graceful, well-dressed gentleman, tall and lithe. He was keen after a hundred interests. He fished, skated and.shot as few can. He played cricket and would go any distance to see a lire or a foot bail match. He had a new story, puzzle or joke every time he met you." A naval otliter who was, years ago, a wardroom officer with Admiral Sampson, says: He first displayed a moral courage which always impressed me by not being afraid to say Iii? prayers before turning in of nights. At first he was alone in this, but his example soon taught us all to fol? low him. On the other hand, he never makes his religious convictions offensive to his shipmates.'' There is more Catarrh in this section of the country than all other diseases put to? gether, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable. For a great many years doctors pronounced it a local disease, ami prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incurable. Sci? ence has proven catarrh to be a constitu? tional disease, and, therefore,' requires constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitu? tional cure on the market. It is taken in? ternally in doses from 10 drops to a tea spoonful. It acts directly on the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. They offer one hundred dollars for any case it fails to cure. Send for circulars and testi? monials. Address, F. J.

T'ndor Great Xervous Incitement Sometimes l'roduoes I'hys leul Frcnij-, The fact that the throes of the Im? agination under great nervous excite? ment often produce a corresponding physical frenay was illustrated recent? ly In the case of n man who had gone to sleep with his artificial teeth in his mouth. YVeking suddenly with a chok? ing sensation he found his teeth had disappeared. He looked in the glass of water where they were usually depos? ited, did not see them there, and re? alized that they must be far down his throat. Choking and struggling, he hammered on the door of a friend sleep? ing in the house, who, seeing his crit? ical condition, vainly endeavored to draw the teeth out of the sufferer's throat. He could* feel the teeth, but had not the strength to extricate them. He ran for a blacksmith, who lived a few doors away, but the blacksmith's hand was too big to put into the man's mouth. A doctor had been .sent for. but he was so long- in coming that the victim of the accident seemed likely to die of suffocation before the physician ar- ? rived. A little girl of ten years was brought, under the Impression that her small hand might reach the obstacle and withdraw it, but she got fright? ened and began to cry. The sufferer became black In the face, his throat swelled out, and his friends expected every moment to be his last, when final? ly the doctor arrived. lie heard the history of the case, saw the teeth were not in the man's jaws nor in their nightly receptacle, felt the throat and chest of the sufferer, and aast his eyes seriously upon the floor. There he saw the whole set of teeth. He adjusted them in the jaws of the patient, told him to hreathc freely, and every symp? tom disappeared.?Philadelphia Rec? ord. Clinch Valley Reiler Mills...
