For two or three months we've all heard a wail From those dailies in Richraond that fly too much aail, A-shouting and yelling? "Get out of the way! We're after Mann, Bryan aad also Judge Rhea." A few of the small fry have caught up the atrain (A performance due moatly to want of some brain) When the string is pulled they holler and bray: "Hurrah! Good! hark!! you're butchering Judge Rhea." The most flagrant of sinnera in all of the van Ia a certain News-Leader who can't stand a Mann, Or a Bryan or Cannon or a Lee, they do aay, And it tells the Republicana: "Letrs knock out Judge Rhea." He's opposing Bill Bryan whenever he can And hitting Jim Cannon, Mac Lee and Judge Mann. He's hot 'bout the Byrd bill and temperance, they say, And ia bilin' clean over because of Judge Rhea. When the vote had been taken The Dispatch cried out: "Aye, I'm with you dear Leader in fighting Judge Rhea, For in fighting Democracy we sure are the stuff; You recall nineteen hundred, how we got in a huff Then deserted Democracy brave and so bold? And ever since then we've been out in the cold. In the coming election it looks like we twain Will be left out once more in the pitiless rain; So we'd better see Teddy and get on the raft Repudiate Bryan and take up with Taft; And then we'll see Stuart and tell him to pray, While we sling the mud to knock out Judge Rhea. And by Henry Stuart like a rock we will atand And bust a cat-gut to knock out Judge Mann. And the young peevish Joumal, who still goes to school, Gets hot 'neath its collar and hollers "Gag rule," And firing a Bullitt from a very small gun With a hope that Democracy's hosts would run. Alas! 'twere in vain?the people did say? We're solid for Bryan, Mann and Judge Rhea. And now, dear brothren this surely does seem You are only muddying the turbid old Jeems. So pray get a broom, brush the cobwebs away For you cannot hurt Bryan or Mann or Judge Rhea. And way down in Norfolk it certainly seema That those dailies are staring with a gaze up the Jeems Listening and looking?and some people say They're digging the mud to fling at Judge Rhea. My advice to you, brethren, as nobly you stand, Go down to the Cape, fill your mouth full of sand, With back to the past and your face to the Bay Stop fighting Bill Bryan, Judge Mann and Judge Rhea. Why here's friend Parson Beasley, South Boston Newa, On the aubject of temperance he's quick to enthuse, But now with the Leader he is flocking I see Working for temperance on a big Jamboree. Yet Uiere's one thing for sure that I never could stand, A political preacher?he's under a ban. And now, my dear brother, to your closet and pray. Make once more your peace for the straight and narrow way And you, my dear Dailies come listen to me: You suggeat to my mind the Sycamore tree, Like Zacheus of old you'll sure have to pay For your fight on Bryan. Mann and Judge Rhea. The hosts of this State, as a stone wall they stand, Proclaim their next Governor shall be a strong Mann: They intend to elect in Democracy's way By majority vote?as they did Judgo Rhea. It's no uae to holler, to fret and to scold. You'd better repent and come in the fold: Or tie stones 'round vour neck and jump in the bay, For witfi kicking and bucking you're in Democrats' way. And t'.ie little weekliea not under your thumb I ne; ber'nfT the fight you made for Judge Crumb Are now preparing your carcass to flay For the parc th it you took in fighting Judge Rhea. . ? Aunty Spec. That ??Telegram." (Hamptou Monttor.) It has been made to appear by a number of newspapers that Judge W. F. Rhea in his investigation for con firmation as Corporation Commisaioner shrank from the evidence of the Hon. Henry C. Stuart as from a vortex of destruction. Unbiased observers all along have known that this was not the case, but a communication to this effect from Judge Rhea has occasioned great surprise with our esteemed friend, the Richmond Journal, who says that it can hardly be true. Mr. Tate Irving, friend of Mr, Stuart and counsol for Judge Rhea, has stated most positively that he knew of the evidence of Mr. Stuart, that he talked it over with him, and considering it almost entirely irrelevant did notobject to its introduction, and the record will ahow Uiat Mr. Irving did not when he knew what it was to be. The Republi? can proaecutora evidently regarded it in the aame light, for Mr. Bullitt, so it is said, took particular pains to go to Mr. Stuart and tell him that they had no deaire in the world to put him on U>e stand if it embarrassed him in the least. Mr. Stuart's reply was not to consider that for a monaent?he would waive all that. We fail to agree with our contem porary that Mr. Stuart's evidence was damaging. We have never heard of it being so regarded. It was so intended no doubt, but it failed in that end most miserably. We have never objected to it on account of any damage it may have done. We have criticised it as curious and remarkable and the public is beginning to agree with us. The only evidence was trying to connect Judge Rhea with a message on a piece of brown paper taken from a 'phone by a man who is now dead. All of the rest of the testimony was consumed in reading a glowing rose-colored essay in the form of a letter to several plain mountaineers. Subsequent to this lit erary gem the evidence was taken up in proving the leader of this (Mr. Stuart's henchman) a plain but good man was a crooked politician. See the record from page 157 on. The rose-colored letter and the cruci fixion of the henchman are the parts of the evidence which will do the smart ing. Do not fret about it damaging Judge Rhea. Mr. Noel in his arraign ment barely touched on it, and all that another Republican senator could say was: "That this letter ought to be framed and hung over every fireside." The telegram was not touched. ??Hark Back." But let us hark back twenty years or even a decade, when conditions were different. When every election meant stubbornly fought atruggle for demo cratic domination in every district, both sides reaorted to every artifice, advan tage or questionable trick to win, and these tricks, sometimes amounting to unblushing political dishonesty, were known and endorsed or at least winked at by the same gentlemen who now take such high ground politically. How long has it been?to bring Oie matter home?sincereputable democrats of Dan ville who condemn Mr. Rhea-laaghed and boasted over the artifices and dis? honesty reaorted to|by them or their as sociates; with their knowledge and con sent to carry Stokesland precinct? Oh, but they tell us?thatwaa a question of white domination. But this is not the fact. The reault in the Fifth district was not dependent upon Stokesland, and every negro vote sto'.en there was equivalent to a white vote in Floyd or Grayson. It was the determination to clect a Democratic representative in Congress, just as was the case in the Ninth district when someof Mr. Rhea's followers sought to take technical ad vantage of every opportunity. How long has it been since white Democrats stole the votes of Jackson ward in Richmond and made it elect white Democrats to the council or return a plurality or a ridiculously reduced ma jority for the Republicans in general elections??Danville Register. Yes "hark back" and see the saintly Richmond Times-Dispatch around with a "shot gun" and going about Oie poll ing places in the South "seeking whom it might devour." Away with the sickly and sickening stuff of the present and recall "condi tiona" not "theoriea," and as Uieir re? turn is conatantly threatened, let'a keep the "boya" in training ready to fire to hit when the black of the face or the "white of the eye" is seen to endanger home and fireside. The men who now cry out "Rhea," once lustily shouted " 'rah, boys!" 44 'rah!"-Farmville Herald. Condemuatlonon Stuplcloa. (PotorsburH* Indcx-Appoal. The minority report in the case of Judge Rhea, submitted by Senator T. Ashby Wickam in dissent from the conclusions of the other members of the investigating committee ? nine in all?is a very remarkable document both with respect to postulate and de duction. In the beginning, it admits that if the committee sat as a criminal court and was bound by all the technical ruies of the criminal law, then it would have to find that no incriminating fact exists unless it was proved beyond all reasonable doubt. On the narrow and almost imperceptible distinction in this case between a'crimi? nal court and a court of inquiry, in which the good name and political rights of a citizen are at stake, this report would strip Judge Rhea of that* protection which the wisdomof the ages, embodied in the technical rules of the criminal law, confers on every accused man, and put him in the extraordinary position of having to prove his own innocence. In other words, the accuser of Judge Rhea having completely failed to establish the charges against him by any testi mony on which a dog might be hung, this minority report abandons all the technical rules of the criminal law, and asks that the accused be condemned on suspicion! To quote the language of tiie report: "The burden is thus thrown on Judge Rhea to prove that he is a fit percon to fill the high position to which he has been appointed." Ia it possible to conceive of anything more abhorrent to reason and justice? The prosecution comes with a great fiourish of charges affirming certain things which the tes timony utterly fails to substantiate, and then after the affimative has ig nominiously fallen down, Judge Rhea must come to the rescue, and prove the negative. Logically and accordiug to the conceptions of common sense, there is no negative to prove since the aflirma tive has been wiped out. But if Oie burden of proving his inno? cence and his^ moral qualifications "to fill the high position to which he has been appointed" is thrown upon Judge Rhea, then he need go no further than thetestimony broughtout by the inves tigation and conyincingly presented by the majority report to discbarge that burden. That testimony not only/efutes the charges preferred by Senator Noel, but it exhibits Judge Rhea in tha credi table light of being unwilling to profit in his own candidacy for Congress by technical advantage over his opponent when he believed that the votes of the two precincts of Patteraon and Mendota did not properly beiong to him. Testi? mony never more completely failed of its purpose than in supporting the charge against Judge Rhea. Even the immacu late Stuart?the relucCant witness who went before the committee, with a gubematorial canipaign document up his sleeve?was not certain that Judge Rhea sent the telegram coiicerning which ' he testified. No evidence was overproduced to prove that Judge Rhea had connection with any such telegram, and it is impossible to understand how Judge Rhea could be condemhed-on such testimony under the "technical rules of the criminal law" or any other rules but the vague and light-shupning rules of suspicion, or what groond there is for a minority report in the. case. A not her Scoreber. Editor Times-Dispatch: Sir, ? Whena citizen ofthis Common? wealth is accused by his political and personal enemies of being unfit for a position to which he has been appointed by the Chief Executive of the State, as has been done in the case of Judge Rhea, it would seem more than fair for the Legislature to urant investigation of charges emanating from such a source. It would also seem more than fair to give full weight and considefation to the partisan and biased testimony, vol untarily ofFered in support of such charges, at a cost of some $10,000 to the State. Now, when all of these things have been done and a legislative committee of honorable men render unanimous verdict of not guilty, and when all but one of the eleven members of the com? mittee recommend confirmation of the appointment, and when the Legislature itself, after reading the testimony, overwhelmingly declares the charges to be slanderous, after all this considera tion has been given and a verdict ren dered under oath, is it reasonable for fair-minded newspapers and people who desire the investigation to reveal the truth to accuse three-fourths of the Legislature of stifting its conscience and sellingout its constituency for party loyalty? Will any one be influenced to indorse such a conclusion? ' Why did not these newspapers and people pre sent to the committee, at itsloAgand many sessions, the evidence that would justify the action they'clamored for? Any fairminded person must conclude that they did not want a deciaion based on facts and that their motives for de feating the aspirations of Judge Rhea were based on political and personal prejudice and the hope of political ad? vantage to them and their friends re sulting from his defeat. The people are understand ing the purposes so well planned by this attack upon the Governor and his appointee. If charges unsustained by proof can diaqualify a citizen for holding an office of responsibility, then the time will soon :ome when none who values his reputa tion will put himself in position to be thus slandered. The liberty that some newspapers md some people take of scattering in sinuations and indorsing charges aimply for political advantage has reached ilarming proportions in the political arena of our once united white people. The people demand some proof of un litness, before they will disgrace a citi senand deciarehimdisqualified for office oecausehisusefulnesshas been impaired by unproven charges brought todamage Iheofficer rather than protect the office. The action of the minority in this case ioes not appeal to me as showing love for the Governor like unto that of "Jonathan unto David," ashas been so recently and dramatically proclaimed. C. B. Neblett. Tinkling, Va. ALL THE VIRTUE NOT IN CITIES. Some of our Richmond contempora ries resented with more warmth, we thought, than was necessary, the In dex-Appeal's well meant adyice to make friends of the country newspa? pers. We note with pleasure, how? ever, that the advice had not fallen on barren soil, for of late the Richmond papers have shown a coramendable 'dis position to unbend their toploftical atti tude and cultivate controversial reia tions with the moulders of public opin ion in the rural regions. This is wise and well. There is nothing on earth like a rough-roll-and-tumble fight to make firm and fast friends. \t begets mutual respect and in the end perma nent friendship. It will help the Rich? mond papers in ways they need to be helped, for as we read the lines, the country papers are holding their own all right.?Index-Appeal. THE SCATTERED TRIBE. As a straw showing how the old Con federates have scattered far and wide, a friend had a copy of Jefferson Davis' "Rise and Fall of the Confederate Gov ernment" for sale, and put a notice of the same in ' *The Confederate Veteran." Requests for the purchaae of the book came to him from Mississippi, Spokane, State of Washington, Georgia, Virginia, Iowa and Oklahoma. Incidentally it shows, too, that the old Confederates keep in touch with each other to some extent, as all these write that they subscribe to the Veterans. It shows also that advertising pays.

Va., is "bone" dry so far as Sunday selling goes. The State law providing imprisonment for violation of tbe Sunday law has ita eflecfc, for while fines are easily paid, the prospect of spending amonth or more in jail is too unpleasant. High license goes into etTect in Balti? more, the Governor having signed the bill just passed by the Legislature. It wilj oost a saloon keeper from now to the end of the year $500 for a license; next year it will be raised to $750, and in 1910 the cost will be $1,000. The price of drinks will remain as at pres ent, but patrons are promised that ster ilfced water will be used to dilute the liquid fire. A NEW TRICK FOR ANTI-SALOONISTS. In Chicago April 7th 500,000 women and girls arrayed in white assemble at the polls. These formed in double lines and voters were obliged to pass between ranks to get tothe polls. Each to use whatmental telepathy they pos sed in confusingor abashing the voter. When a saloon advocate is to speak the womeh go to the hall in force and exert their silent influence in thought waves, and it is said that on at least one occasion a speaker had his thoughts so muddled that he made a dismal failure. LIQUOR WAR IN THRKK STATES. Twelve hundred towns in eighty-four counties in Illinois (there are 102 coun ties in the State) are united in a war to abolish the saloon. Chicago is belted with outlying districts, and if these go dry the great city will be environed by a dry belt. In this area are about 3,000 saloons. There are only about eight cities in the State exempt from this fight. Decatur, 111., where 13,000,000 bushels of corn are annually made into grists for the breweries, is one of the storm centers. Fourteen counties in Michigan will vote on local qption this week. Danyille, Va., will try again the local option issue for the third time in six years. The election comea ofF April 15th, and the atruggle is. if anything, more bitter than ever. NO NEEO TO BE UNFAIR. (Ciliich Valley Neara.) Whercr in all newspaperdom or in the history of the most heated, not to aay fanatical campaigns, will you find such an intemperate, misleading and unfair statement as this from the Times-Dis patch:., "They (the prohibition adyocates) believe that the devil makea all the liquor; that hell is liquor on fire; that every drop of distilled liquor is a drop of distilled deviltry; that the man who tirinks a drop of it commits a ain/ that the man who drinks a glass of it com? mits a crime, and that the man who takes a drink every day is fit for trea son, stratagem and spoila, and in the highest degree an undeairable citizen." . The most intemperate, long-haired, ignorant temperance advocate in the wildest daya of the temperance cam paign never surpassed this wonderful utterance from a paper priding itself on being "supreme" in Virginia. Sup pose such a misrepresentation and mis statement had been made by a prohi bitionist or the Anti-Saloon League, what would the papers in Richmond have said? The temperance advocates can be as sured, however, that such manifestly unfair and exaggerated announcements as the above will do their cause good rather than harm. The position of the Anti-Saloon people is pretty generally understood now?not the man but his business?not a fight against liquor per 8e, but against its sale in open saloons. Not against the man who takes his drink. but against the manner of his getting it. But every time a paper representing the liquor interests, or a saloon keeper himself has anything to say on the subject they attack the men who are fighting the open saloon, they proceed to "fling mud" at individuals. The above clipping from thie Times Dispatch is a surprise and a disappoint ment to the many friends of that excel lent paper who are conscientioualy and honestly opposed to the open saloon? citizens of high standing in the State as well as in Richmond. The truth becomes more and more apparent at eyery turn that the saloons of liquor soaked Richmond have ardent and warm supporters in the Richmond daily papers, and the temperance and anti 'aaloon cause must fight the battle with out their support. A GUEST BOOK. A guest book is an easily acquiredad dition to any home, no matter how humble. I have a pretty leather covered book (a cheaper one would do) and in this have recorded the names of all guests who have stayed over night. To have the names in their own chirography adds to the interest. We have been married but three years, and it doea not seem as if we had had very manv guests, but when the names are all together they make a very entertain ing list. \ You will find more states and cities represented than you imagined you had entertained representatives from. Some say anticipation ia better than realization?but in this case you will find the pleaaant memoriea which linger of the guests are the best of all. ?Home Department April Nationa Magazine.

There are several papers in thia State that are everlastingly crying out against an imaginary machine which they say exiata in the body politic of Virginia. They don't aeem to know the difFerence between an organized party and a machine-ridden or bossed party. Organization is cssential to suc cess in party management aa it is in busi? ness enterprises, and thus organization must have an intelligent, wise and pa triotic leadership; must have some head, and that is the case in Virginia, so far as we know or observe. The papers that are kicking and knocking at what they call a'machinenow wereas silentas death itself when others were In charge of the political organization. The intolerable tyranny of the so-called machine now was not seen, known or felt by these papers when certain oth? ers were at the head who dominatcd the party and declared its policy. Ah, there is a great diflference, as an old timer used to say. "between who and which"?a very great difference be? tween the "outs" and the "ins." The outs cry aloud and spare not, while the "ins" laugh and are merry. CONCEIYED IN SIN. [Nortbamptoii Timea.1 Since the infamous primary plan has been in operafeion the great masses in the rural districts scarcely know what to do. One fact, however, ia indisput able, all of the people know that no poor man can, under the primary ay? tem aa now conducted, run for any office becauae he has not the money to defray the expense of a primary elec tion. Simply infamous. If the State Committee decides that the people may have precinct meetings to select tha delegates to the State Convention, then the people will have it in their powor through their own chosen delegates in convention assembled to throttle the whole primary system. A syatem con ceived in sin and brought forth in iniq uity. The idea of candidates for nom ination having to pay for the bighar of ficea within the gift of the people from $1,000 to $17,000.

We know not how it is in other parts of the State, but the primary does not meet with favor in this section.?Hallifax Gazette. PEARLS FROM THE SHELLS. Glory is its own reward.
