OYSTERS LOW. While oysters throughout Virginia have not been as fine and plentiful for years stock is aelling very low. Seed on the ocean side ranges from 6 to 8 cents a bushel. 50 to 100 buahels a day are being caught per man. This seed will not thrive in the Chesapeake bay. Seed in James river, where they are catching 50,000 bushel* a day, are as low as 18 cents. Marketable oyatera are bringing from 25 to 40 centa a bushel. THB EQOOaXML STORM. Whatever the acientiata may aay alout the abaurdity of the Eqainoctial Ttorrn. it will be h^rd to convince th?> average "toiler of the deep." after the experiences of the uaat week, tha there is not auoh a atorm anda aavagely aevere one at that.' Ten days ago a tropical atorm that had been hovering about the Gulf of Mexico alruck the aouthem coast line about the mouth oi the Miasiaaippi, wrecking hundreda oJ planiations, destroying villages, swamp ing towns, and causing the loaa of many hundreda of cattle. horsea, hoga and Bome 300 human beinga. V?saels are wrecked, ateamera diamantled, sailors washed overboard and damage running up to millions of dollars intlioted on aoa and land. The atorm inaiead of come ing up the coast as is usual with such. followed the course of the MissLssippi and apeaat itself inland, b.in^ dissipated about lake Michigan. Another set in late last week, with U?e wind blowing a gale, and Hampton Roads was filled with sehoonera, sailing vtssels of small j.nd largo size and many ocean-going steamers, all atorm- j bound by one of the most dangerousj galea that has 8wept the coast in years. Nearly a hundred small vessels took j refuge in the Roads, and the steamer bound out of Norfolk for the Rappa hannock on Monday afternoon after1 starting out and getting as far up the Bay as York Spit, was obliged to turn j back and seek shelter inside the Roads, the wind blowing over 30 miles an hour. Due at Irvington at 11 p. m. Monday night it did not arrive until ' Tuesday afternoon. Monday *s steamer ' from the Rappahannock did not arrive' in Baltimore until 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. and there was no boat at all from that river to Baltimore Tuesday, the Calvert remaining in tne river to make the Thursday's trip. From all reporta the Chesapeake bay was never in a worse niood than f i om Friday morning until Tuesday night. The wind blew with hnrricane force kicking up a sea that would have done credit to aome of the worst points along th** Atlantic coast. FISH ANO OVSTER KOTES.

Monthly meeting of the State Com? mission of Fisheriea is in aeasion this week in Richmond, winding up thefiscal year. The 8oft crab season is over. A few more craba than heretofore, because there were more catchers, but prices ruling low. Oystermenreport the catch rijrht good. but prices are low; only forty cents u bushel for river Iumj> oysters. ? Ilinnom Corr. N. N. News. Dogfish along the M;iine coast have bothered fishermen to such an extent that even handliners are unable to make any catches. ? Fishing C izette. Commissioner Lee. with the "Maury", waa in Crisfield, Md., this week con ferring with Maryland . fficials as to defining the State line in Pocomoke Sound. Oysters are moreplentiful in the Rap pahannock this season than they have been known to be for the paat 20 years or more. TorTgers are reporting large cafechea, J. H. and T. R. Mason, of Irvington, with cull boy, having caught 42 bushels one day last week, and28, 30 and 82 bushela several days. Geo. StC. Smith, of Irvington, with twohelperain boat, has caught as high rs 23 bushels a day and there are others doing equal ly as well. Althtfugh Maryland oysters are not on the market at present to any extent, commission merchants say the season will be a good one. The majority of the oysters on aale come from the York and James rivors and the supply is within the demanda. One dealer stat ed that oysters from Virginia were bringing |3 to $3.50 a barrel, while another was getting from 35 to 75 centa a bushel. ? Balto. Sun. CONDITION ON CORROTOMAN. Oyatermen on the Corrotoman river clairn that they are catching more oya? tera than in years. Ouroystermen the two preceding seasons have been thinking that the inspectors were pret? ty rigid in enforcing the cull law as they did, but now they are heginning to realize the benefit of this strict en fjreemeatof the cuil law. They can n >w see that a strict enforcenjent of the laws, and to let the small oysters atay on the rocka, is to their advantage. Much credit is due the Commissioner of Fisheriea and force of inspt ctora. E L Millenbeck. Va. DELECATES TO OYSTER CONVENTION.

EXTELLENT RfcCORD OF ADMIN ISTRATION IN VIRGINIA. I Baltimore Sun. I Theapeechof Judge William H. Mann, the Democratic nominee for Governor of Virginia, at Culpepper on Monday was a completeand convincing reply to the charges made by his Republican opponent, Mr. Kent. Judge Mann presented incontestable facts in reply to Mr. Kent's assumptions and innuen does and sweeping assertions. To the charges of extravagance and incompe tence in the administration of the State government, the Democratic nominee gave an impresaive and satisfving an awer by citing the recorda?a reeord of progreasive. efticientand honeat admin iatration of the alTairs of the State under Democratic control. RICHMOND SENATOR REMEMBERS OUTSIDE ROW. About the good roads proposition, I favor giving the stone quarry at the State farm to the Highway Commis sioner and tbat he be given a convict force of fifty or seventy-five to get out the stone, and another fifty or aeventy five convictb to build the roads in Gooch land. The railroad is right at the quar? ry. and we have everything for the trial ofa two-year experiment. Our road commissioner can report to the Legisla ture of 1912 just how much it coata un? der these most favorable circumstancea and the result of hia quarry road force. The Legislature and the people will then have it right square up to them. "Shall we go in the quarry and road buainess with the convicts or renew the contract with the D.ivis Boot and Shoe Company, which expirea in 1913, on<? year later?" I hope no one will be grudge the experiment to Goochland county; any one who would and know ing how the roads are in Goochland ought to be j.ut to work in the quarry. Somethinghas been said of taking the railroad taxea for road improve ment. I would not commit myself at this time on that proposition. but I will say this, that I would vote to give the' State's interest in the Richmond. Fred erickaburg and Potomac Railway to any railroad that will build.U8 the greatest number of miles of railroad in the First District, and couple tho same with some inland city, whether West Point or Newport News, or eisewhere is a matter of little importance to the State so we get the value in new railroad antl the taxes on it and the increased value of land. The State owes $25,000,000 largely for building railroads. The First Dis? trict got none or precious little. Now if the State buys quarries for road pur Rpaaa, how will the First District be b-ncfited? Will we buy a quarry in Mary land for them, where th*?y buy everything else, or carry it across in barvres? Richmond, August 31, 1909. WHY WASTE AMMUN1TI0N ON MR. BRENT. Now that it has been made plain that Mr. Brent, the Republican candidate for superintendent of public instruction, was reque8ted to hand in his resignation as a subordinate of Superintendent E/gieston and did not resign because |M was dissatisfied with the manmr in which the affaira of the office were con ducted. why not let the matter drop? Everybody knows that what Mr. Brent says ia campaign talk, and aa long aa it is undcrstood that he ia a discharged Democratic official who is trying to ride into a public job by turning Repub? lican it seems hardiy worth while to paata ammunition on him. ?Newi>ori News Press. The present State Superintendent of Public Instrucliun won hia ofiice by de monstrating the untilness of those in control when he made his campaign. He bhowed that scrioua abuses had ex isted in the department without the disc.ove.ry of the fact by the head of the department. He proved hia chargea at a public investigation, and to the satis faction of the public proved also that a sweeping change waa needed in the direction of the State's educational affairs. Undei Mr. Eggleston the De? partment of Public Education has been conducted with vigor and ability and haa made noteworthy progreas. He is un doubtedly one of the most eflioient ad ministratora the state haa had for a generation. ?Norfolk Landmark.
