The Rev. James Cannon, Jr., in a
letter to the Richmond News Leader.
el?ars up the atmosphere very decided
ly with reference to statewide prohi?
bition. He announces his opposition
to statewid" prohibition unlcss pass
ed on directly by the people of the
state. He does not favor statewide
prohibition by legislative enar-tment.
His letter is interesting reading, and
we reproduce part of it as follows:
"Personally, I eould not favor the
passage of a statewide prohibitory law
by the legislature exeept nnder the
most extraordinary circumatances, such
as I do not think likely to arisa. I
believe it would be a great mistake to
secure statewide prohibition by a vote
of the legislature, and I do not believe
that the thoughtful temperance i>eople
of Virginia desire the legislature to
pass such a law. The passage of such
a law by the vote of the legislature
would rot have the binding force
that such a law would have if en
acted by the vote of the people. It
would be subject more easily to rcpeal
by the legislature than would a law
enacted by popular vote. If the law
should be enacted by the vote of the
people, the legislature would hesitate
to repeal it without sul.mission of the
question of repeal to the popular vote.
Moreover the submission of the question
to the voteof the people would result
in a campaign of education, which is
of vital importance, if the law is to
produce the best results. Were 1.
therefore, to ask any question of tbe
candidate for the legislature in the
legislative district in which I reside.
I should ask him not whether he would
as a memher of the general assembly.
vote for a statewide prohibitory law,
but whether he would as a rrember of
the general assembly vote to give the
people the right to vote on the question
of a statewide prohibitory law, should
at least one-fourth of the voters of his
district demand that righL
"llolding these views, I hope that
the temperance people of the state will
not try to elect men to the house of del
egates pledged to favor the passage of
a statewide prohibitory law hy the leg?
islature. but that they will brj to eleet
men who will agre.- to favor the
twelve items of the legislative pro
gram of the league, snd who will agree
tovote to submit the question of state?
wide prohibitory law to a vote of the
people whenever it is evident that one
fourth or more of the voters of the
state desire to exercise that right.
This is simply the principle of the
refere'ndum applied to the liquor traflic.
"Furthermore, I do not believe that
the temperance people should precipi
tate a vote on a statewide prohibitory
law until the necessary preliminary
work has been thoroughly done."
The plaos for the Summer Normal
Institute at Fredericksburg have been
perfected. The Conductor, Mr. A. B.
Chandler, jr., of Richmond, and the
Local Manager, Mr. GranvilleR. Swift,
of Fredericksburg, have been in consul
tation recently with reference to ar
ranging d3tails for the conduct of the
school. A folder, giving information
in a nutshell about the Summer School
is now ready for distribution among all
prospective students and friends of the
Institute. A handsomely illustrated
prospectuB of the school will also be
ready formailing in a week or ten days.
This Institute was the largest purely
Suinin'.?! Njrmal School in Virginia Iast
year. An inereased attendance is ex
pected this year and all arrangements
are being made with this in view. The
assembly home and school building will
be thrown open to summer students and
the dormitories of the Fredericksburg
College, under the management of a
competent house-keeper, will also be at
their disposal. The entire citizenship
of Fredericksburg is interested in the
success of this school and many of the
most desirable homes of the City will be
at the disposal of the Normal students.
The handsome new Public School
Building with its 15 large and well ven
tilated rooms, just completed at a cost
of $45,000.00, will be used for the ses
aions of the school. The program of
the lectures has been so arranged as to
avoid conflicts and to' permit students
to take any aubjects they desire. All
of the aubjects required for 1st, 2nd and
3rd grade certificates will be taught. In
addition all of the subjects required for
the first year's professional course and
several aubjects for the second and
third year's professional course will be
given. Studcnts will have opportunity,
if they sodesire, to get valuable insight
into several subjects not required for
State certificates, suchas muaie, nature
study, etc. Entertainments of a cul
tural nature will be provided for the
studonts every Friday evening during
the session of the school. Among- these
ontortainments the management can
now announce the following: July 2nd
lecture on Robt. Burns by Rev. H. D.
C. MacLachlan, with the Burns songg
illustrated by Mrs. Walter G. Duke;
July 9th reception tostudents; Jily23rd

The regular State examinations, in
cludingcxaminations on the professional
course, will be held at the Institute

MR. TUCKER AND 16 TO 1.
After defending that unfortunate
venture, the Jamestown exposition, of
which he was president, Mr. Tucker
took up his Democratic record, and
characterized as untruo the statement
that he had deserted the Democratic
party in 1896.
"I did not believe in 16 to 1 silver,
and did not make speeches in favor of
the Democratic nominees, but I aup
ported the nominees of the party at
Compare this recent statement with
that made in his speeeh on the eve of
the Amherat convention in 1896 when
"It is not a question, gentlemen, as
to what you and I as Democrats shall
do for we are going to support our
nominee utlinchingly and heartily
and supiM>rt not only the norninee of
the Chicago convention, but of thia
great convention assL*ml>led hore to
As a matter of fact Mr. Tucker did
make two or three speeches during the
campaign. One of these, if our reco
lection is exact, was at Mount Sydney,
Augusta county, and another waa in
Fluvanna county. It has been said
that these speeches were so far from
being productive of enthusiasm that
the local party authoritios in one coun?
ty wrote to the State chairman and
asked that Mr. Tucker be not asaigned
to make any other speeches. It has
also been rt j>orted that the precincts
at which he spoke went Kepublican,
though usually Demoeratic. It will be
remombered that Mr. Flood. the norni?
nee of the convention was defeated in
the election by a Rcpublican.

A practical farmer says that his
cows produce more milk when provided
with warm water during cold weather,
the principal cause in the shrinkage of
milk being that ice-cold water interferes
with the digestion of food, whereas
warm water promotes it.

EXPERT ON POTATOES AND TOMATOES.
Pot&toes require a dry soil, that is, a
soil that does not get exceedingly wet.
It must be either naturally or artifi
cially drained. Potatoes rot so often
when grown in the wet soil. I have
had f>0 years' experience with the two
kinds of soil. The one is a safe, re
munerative undertaking, and the other
is almost sure to bring a failure.
To protect tomato plants from insect
ravages, paria green is safe and ef
fectual if properly used. The tomato
cr6p is being very serously damaged all
over the country by a blight which at
tacks the foliage of the plants. To pro?
tect them against this, as well as tonave
them from insect depredations, it is
best to use a combined spray of bor
deaux mixture and paria green, using
one quarter pouod of paria green to 40
gallona of the bordeaux.
THE CONHECTICUT OYSTER.
What's the Matter With the State
So Often Thrown up to Us?
A Connecticut oyster planter in dis
cusaing the taxation question a few
day a ago said:
"Thousands of acres have been aban
doned since 1885. It is 15,000 less now
"Prior to 1875 moat of the Connecticut
output of oysters was imported from
Maryland and Virginia. The enterpriae
of the oyater growers created a great
industry, which has been of enormous
benefit to Connecticut, and the lawa
now provide for an assessment of the
grounds at a fair market valuation and
a tax of fifteen milla, which is a high
rate considering the very slight protec
tion of law which oyater ground can re
cefve under tbe circumstancea.
"The fact that tbe oyater induatry in
Connecticut had a magnificent growth
between 1875 and 1885 haa nothing more
to do with the increase of taxes on oys?
ter ground now than had the criginal
reasons that were put forward m the
Governor'amessage, namely, that Rhode
Ialand received a great deal larger in
come per acre. Everybody that knows
anything about the subject understands
now that there cannot be any more inteli
gent comparison betweon the Rhode
Island grounds and the Connecticut
grounds, than there is between the
choicest garden plot in Connecticut and
the wildest, rocky sheep pasture.
"The other reason which was advan
ced in the Governor'a message, namely,
that the grounds off Gullford and Mad
iaon are assessed at one dollar per acre,
is disposed of by the fact that the own
era of those grounds are freely offer
ing them in the market at one dollar
per acre, and even 75 cents per acre
with no takera, and there are
between 10,000 and 20,000 acres waiting
application in that locality from any
body who will pay one dollar per acre.
"The facts about the income which
the Governor discovered in Boston have
been published in the printed reporta of
the Shellfish Commisaioners repeatedly
during the past ten years, with fullex
planations of why the differencc exists.
"Now that the reason advanced in
the original message are melted away,
there is a dispoaition in some quartera
to grasp at the straw that the induatry
waa deveioped greatly during the
periud from 1875 to 1885. Thia does not
afTect the question any mor^ than the
original erroneous assumption did.
"In these days, when our foreats are
destroyed by fire and the axe, and our
aoil improverished aa a result of thia
denudation and paid taxes on them,
have paid for enormous experiments
and losses, and are not only conserving
our resources but have created a great

The time has come when we people in
Tidewater should be united, stop having
decensiona and get together. How?
Have a convention in some central place
in Tidewater, composed of plantera,
tongers, riparian owners, shippers,
capilaliats and after consultation, after
all intereats are heard.give and take, then
form and frame such meaaures as will
be approved by all the interests; let
measures be reaaonable, fair and juat,
then go to the General Assembly and
ask for the passage and I believe we
can hucceed. Not more than thirty
membera out of one hundred and forty
in the General Assembly, are intcrested
directly or indirectly in the oyster in?
dustry and if Tidewater is divided the
other membera will say "We will aet
tle the matter, Tidewater is divided and
let them quarrel among themselves."
After many years experienea let me
give thia advice, "Let us make a deter
mined effort to frame our oyster lawa
and ask the General Assembly to paaa
them." Also at the convention we can
have discuaeions over lawa pertaining
to clams, fish, crabs and terrapins and
ask for legislation if necessary.
F0RG0T PERMIT; BODY CAME BACK
Maryland Health Anthoriiiea For
bid Landing of Remalns.
Richmond, Va., April 8.?A atrange
atory comes to this city from the
Northern Neck, regarding the attempt
ed removal of a body from Virginia to
Maryland. Sometime ago, according to
the report, a respected citizen of the
Northern Neck died, and hia family
decided to carry th? remains to Mary?
land for burial. The local undertaker
duly embalmed the body, provided it
with a coffin and saw that it was placed
on the firat boat bound for Baltimore,but
he forgot the neccessary tranait permit.
Accordingly when the boat reached
Maryland soil at Baltimore, the health
oflicials of that State refused to allow
the body to be landed, on the ground
that it had been removed contrary to
law. The family of the dead man beg
ged that they be permitted to bury the
body in Maryland, but the law gave the
health authoritiesno diacretion and they
ordered the return of the body to Vir?
ginia. With no alternative left them,
tbe bereaved family was forced to take
the noxt bost back to the Northem
Neck and bury the body there.
When asked about this report today,
the State health commissioner said:
"The story is substantially correct as
printed, and only goes to show what
sad results msy follow the neglect or
lack of information on the part of some
local authorities. There is an inter
State agreement between Maryland,
Delaware and Virginia which requires
that when a body be shipped from one
State to another it be embalmed in a
specified manner and be accompanied
by a special permit authorizing the
shipment of the body. The Maryland
authorities had no alternative in the
matter, however much they regretted
the necessity of ordering the body sent
back to Virginia. Some local authoriT
ties overlook the fact that when a body
is sent by rail or by water from. one
place to another in tbe State, as *welj
as from Virginia to another State it
must have the necessary permit. The
health department has recently sent
out a number of these permit* to al]
the medical members of the county
boards of health and there is no excuse
for fafling to qse them when a body is
MR. TDCKER AT ACCOMAC.
On Monday last the Hon. Harry St
George Tucker made a speech at Ac?
comac Courthouse. Among the things
that the Hon. Harry St.George Tucker
said we find the following interesting
"I want no man to feel embsrrasaed;
any question you put to me I will an
swer. I came here with no league be
hind me; no W. C. T. U. back of me.
as I ui.deratand my opponent haa. I
am here as a Dcmocrat askingfor Dem?
The Exponent haa already asked Mr.
Tucker a few questiona, but, so far,
we have been unable to observe that
he has ever answered them. lt aeems
that the Hon. Harry St. George Tucker
only anawers the questions that are
propounded to him by one newspaper,
the Richmond Evening Journal, a paper
that is notoriously for Tucker. The
Journal questiona are usually propound?
ed just on the eve of a speech that
Mr. Tucker is going to make, and they
are answered with a promptnesa that
ia exceedingly gratifying. Thia leads
the Exponent to preaume to hope that
some day its humble questiona might
be anawered. Therefore we are going
to again make the attempt to obtain
some light on the varioua mattera that
will be raentioned:
First-Ia it true, Mr. Tucker, thst
when the Jamestown Exposition fom
pany was placed in the handa of a re
ceiver, you were appointed and accep
ed employment, aa counael for the ret
ceiver at a aaiary of $10,000 per year?
If so, does this employment still con
tinue? If not, when was itdiscontinued?
Second ?Why was it, Mr. Tucker,
that you did not vote at all on the
occasion of the local option election
on the saloon question whL-h was held
in your home town of Lexington?
Third?In your Manchester speech.
Mr. Tucker, you told us that, if a local
option election should be held in your
home town of Lexington you would
vote dry because it was a college town,
where there were naturally many young
men. It ia well known that there are
only a few college towns in Virginia.
Therefore, Mr. Tucker, we aak you
how you would vote on the saloon ques?
tion should a local option election
be held in your home town, and it
so happened that your home town was
not Lexington. nor any other college
Fourth?How would you vote, Mr.
Tucker, on the question of compulsory
education should an election be held in
your home county to determine wheth
er or not your county should have com?
Fifth?If you are decided, Mr. Tuck?
er, that you would vote, in such an elec?
tion, against compulsory education,
how do you reconcile your present posi
tion with the one you took in 1902 at
Athens, Ga., where speaking as the
"Field Agent of the Southern Educa?
tion Board," you unequivocally declar
ed for compulsory education, without
any qualification as to the local option
Sixth-Is it true, Mr. Tucker, that
you were employed on a salary of $3,
600 per year to further the ends of this
Ogden educational movement, the prin
cipal feature of which was the strait
out advocacy of compulsory educa?
Now that the increase to two and a
half cent per mile in Virginia has been
firmly established, the different aystems
no longer exhibit shyness in coming
forward with statements of their earn
ings and admissions that the same were
increased during the last nine months
over a similar period immediately pre
ced:ng, in spite of the fact that the two
cent passenger rate was in force. Yet
it has been our understanding all along
that the point upon which the Virginia
railroads appealed to the Gorporation
Commisaion for permission to advance
rates was based upon the plea that
there had been a marked slump in their
earnings.? Newport Newa Press.
As it now standa the railroads are
permitted to charge more for travel,
and the public is not proteeted against
their inconvenient and unjustconditions

AFTER COLLEGE DAYS. WHAT?
The wirl Who Caooaes a Profeaaien
Should Study Her LImltatioaa.
What to do next! It is a big problem,
ian't it? And to the girl on the eve of
graduation, it is a problem that aasumes
appalling proportiona. Yet really, if we
look it straight in the face, it ian't such
an awful question, after all. By we, I
mean girls of average intelligence-not
geniuses seeking careers, but girls who
either by choice or necesaity decide to
earn their own living in some way.
It ia ignorance of the requirements
and of the advantages and disadvan
tages connected with the varioua phases
of professional, business and home life
that seems to be comerstone of per
plexity and the cause of failure in many
cases. You must take time to study
thedifferentoccupations and thus decide
for which you are best adapted. Here
is a chance for the college-trained girl
to show her appreciation of the merits
of thorough investigation, not mistak
ing inclination for ability by persuading
herself that what she likes to do is
identical with what she can do.
The sooner the artist by choice real
izesthat she ia a housekeeper by ability,
the better it will be for pride and pocket
book. The flrat thing, then, for the
college girl in choosing an occupation,
ia to find out what she can't do; then,
by the eliminative process, to decide for
what line of work she is best fitted, con
sidering temperament, training, home
conditions and opportunity in general.?

TACT?AND WHAT ITDOES.
The women who have exerted the
greateBt social influence have not been
beautiful or intellectual. Among these
was an American woman, Mra. Octavia
Le Vert, of Alabama, whose reputation
for aociaJ charm and popularity was in
temational. She had a pleasing and a
cultivuted intelligence, and ahe had
suprem* tact?a posaession that enabled
her to pleaae all clasaes, to reconcile so
cial ditferences, to be the friend and
counselor of statesmen?the confidant
and adviser of ambitious young men and
timid young women.
A young man who had been sent by
his county in Alabama to repreaent it
in the Legislature, attended a reception
at the state capital city. He was coun
try-bred. unuaed to society: the brilliant
gathering awed him, and? over look ed
by his hostess ?he sat ailent and de
preased. Mrs. Le Vert was there?the
center of admiring friends. Her quick
eye discovered the young stranger and
she came and sat beside him. With
tactful art she drew him out of hia
embarraaaed. self-conscious mood, and
led him to Ulk of his home and his
people; finally of his ambitious hnpes
and plans. When she had aucceeded
in reviving his self esteem, she intro
duced him to rome of her friends i.nd
he greatly enjoyed the occasion.
In later life, when he had won a rep?
utation, he spoke with feeling of Mrs.
Le Vert's kindneas that evening. "It
saved me," he aaid, "from becoming
embittered and diacouraged: and possi
bly from giving up my hope of a public
career."?Mary E. Bryan, in Uncle Re
mus's?The Home Magazine for April.
TALK OF RINGS.
The talk of "rings" is little and con
temptible and in Virginia is only indul
ged in by the demagogue and the man
and newspaper who are willing to resort
to untruthfulneas to deceive the weak
minded. None but the very weak will
be deceived by this character of cam?
The suggestion of "rings" support
ing Judge Mann is made for the pur
pose of injuring him, and yet Mr.
Tucker and every enthusiastic supporter
he has would jump for joy if either of
the so-called "rings" could be induced
to support Mr. Tucker, and it ia hard
to describe what kind of a aomeraault
he and they would turn if he could
secure the support of both of these ao
called "rings".?Southside Virginian.
"PUTITON YOUR WIFE."
The Honorable Harry Saint George
Tucker, candidate for governor, is now
having a costly and palatial residence
erected in Waahington. When ahown a
newspaper article criticising him for this
Mr. Tucker defended himself by aaying:
"Yes, weare doing this; my wife was
advised to do it, and she has done it."
Certainly, Mr. Tucker, put it on your
wife. She is nota candidate. ? Manasaas
