Speaking in laudatory tonea of Con greaaman Jones, the Mathewa Journal nevertheieas thinks he ought to atep out of the way for othera, particularly ex-State Senator Seara. The Journal aays: "While all these things are true of Mr.Jones, there ia a feeling among many peraons in all parte of the First District that it is time to give some body elae a ahow. For twenty years he has enjoyed the honor and emolument of representing this District inCongress if hia ambition is not satisfied, then aome position of even higher honor and trust should be his goal, "It is true that Mr. Jones has made a capable and erficient representative, but there are other men in the district who are equally capable of ethciently repreaenting this* constituency. We have in mind at present a gentleman from our own fair little county. one who is the peer of any man in thia section of Virginia in ability, in statesmanahip and in aterling worth of character; a man more over whom the people of Tidewater ahould delight to honor we refer to Hon. J. Boyd Sears. There' are doubtleaa othera who are capable, but none who would be more acceptable to the people at large. We do not on gen eral principlea approve of putting good men out of offic, but neithor do we believe in monoply of anything, offlce Jeaetof all." POUTICAL. Mrs. Marilla M. Ricker, of Dovt r, N. II., has anuounced herself as a can didatd for Governor of New Hampshire andproposes to mak*? a bruising fight ui.til the people of the Commonwealth S'-ttle the question at the polls at the next election. The time having expired in which candidates could file notices of theii candidacy for the Democratic nomina tion for Congress in the First Conjjres sional district. and Hon. W. A. Jones alone having filed such notice, he will be declared the nominee of the part> for theoffice. Al though the election for the next governor of Virginia will not be held for over three years yet at least tive candidates for the position are already in the field. These gentlemen evidently believe that the early bird catches the worm. Instances are known, however, when the early bird has been cnught.? Alexandria Gazette. Not every man is in politics for what there is in it. In fact, inspite of many things that would seem to indicate the opposite, in all probability most politi cians, using the term in its best sense. are honest. sincere and patriotic. And not unoften we find men who in devot ing their life to the services of their party and country by accepting office make a large financial sacrifice. It is well to keep that fact in mind when we are tempted to think every politician is a sort |of grafter. ? Bedford Democrat. PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS. In the election this fall the sover eigns of Virginia will be called upon to vote upon four proposed amendmenta to the organic law of this Common wealth, at least thrcc of which are of matcrial importance, though nobody seeins the least bit excited over the matter. In fact hardly anybody seems to know that the constitutional amend? menta will figure in the election, and so far as outward signs go, thcre's not a soul who cares. Certainly it does not look as if the contemplated changes will be regarded as anything like an isaue. One of the amendments proposes to extend the session of the Legislature from sixty to ninety days. A second amendment would simplify the legislative procedure and reducc the number of readings which every bill now haa to g? through with The third amendment provides for the election of Commissioners of the Revenue and other officials by popular vote. HEARING ON TRAP-FISHING. By authority of the Secretary of War a Board of Officers of the Corps of En gineera, conaisting of Colonel Thos. L. Casey, Major Mason H. Patrick and Capt. Warren T.

At this hearing representatives of nav gation interests and the fishing indus :ry will be heard; but it is desired that ? far as poasible, their views be aub nitted in writing. OYSTER PIRATE ARRESTED. Capt. 0. W. Hudson, of the police boat James River, last week arrested Jaa. Stevens charged with dredging oystera out of aeason on the Potomac. When Stevens and hia helpers saw that they had been discovered they ran their vessel ashore and made their escape. The boat was confiscated and tied up and locked. Stevens waa subsequently arrested and had a hearing before Jua tice W. C. Minor. There was no evi dence to prove that Stevens was actu ally in the boat at the time, and he was discharged. A fine of $50 was assesaed against the boat, which will be adver tised and sold at auction within twenty days. The officiala state that the oya ter laws will be strictly enforced against all olfenders. MR. ANDERTON BLAZES THE WAY. We reproduce the following from last week's Southside Sentinel, also copy elsewhere the two letters referred to, which we trust may be widely read and profit derived therefrom: The card published by Mr. C. H. An derton to his merchant f riends in thia issue indicates thatat least one Rich? mond firm ia doing a profitable busineaa in this territory in spite of the lack of transpnrtation facilities. If other firms in Greater Richmond would put such men as Mr. Anderton among us, they too would find that we are ready and anxious to do dusiness with them. Then, perhaps, Richmond would open hereyes to the great importance of a railroad to Lhis countrv and hmM it CHURCH WRECKED BY WIND STORM. The severest wind storm ever kr.own threatened the town of Tappahannock Monday afternoon at 5 o'clock. It was the neareat approach to a cyclone ever experienced in that section. It blew down building8, moved house3, and swept off fruit trees and beautiful shade trees level with the ground. The Firat Baptiat church (colored), the largest and handaomest church in town, is a total wreck. So far as heard from, the storm was confined to the immediate iricinity of Tappahannock. BIG CATCH OF TROUT. Capt. W. E. White, of fishing ateam er Wicomieo, caught about 30,000 trout at one haul ten milea at aea Monday, which he sold in Norfolk at retail from his boat. Aa the captain reported thathe caught the fish in the ocean beyond the three mile limit, there was no queation that he was acting within his right, but after June 16th aale of ediblefish caught with purse net will be prohibited in Virginia porta.

FACTS ABOUT THE SUNDAY SCHOOL. The largest organization on earth is the Sunday School. It haa more than twenty-aix million membera, to be found in every nation except Thibet. North America alone has sixteen mil? lion Sunday School membera. Every State in the United States and every province in Canada is elabor ately organized for Sunday School work, so that the remote cross-roads school is brought into touch with the interna tional organization. Every one of the 200 Protestant de nominations, as well aa some of the Ro man Catholic parishes, contains the Sun? day School. In practically all of the 275,000 indi vidual Sunday Schoola the international lepson is atudied weekly. This lesson is prepared by an interna? tional interdenominational committee of eminent acholars. The membera of the Sunday School range in age from the infant on the cradle roll to the aged persons in the adult department. The World's Sunday School Conven tion, recently in sesaion in Washington, was attended by official delegates from every State in the Union. from every province in Canada, and from more than fifty countries- the most coamopoiitan pathering ever held on thia continent. Previoua conventions have been held in London, St. Louis, Jeruaalem, and Rome. METHODIST CONFERENCE CLOSES. The General Conference of the Meth odists at Asheville, N. C, adjourned sint die Saturday. The next session will be held beginning the first Wedneaday in May, 1914. The change in the wording of the Apostlea' Creed was made by amajority vote. It has been for some time past a great deaire on the part of some the preachera and laymen for the words "The Holy Catholic Church" tobe taken out of the ereed, and the worda "The Church of God" inserted in their place The name of the church was also changedfrom "The Methodist Epiacopal Church, South," to "The Methodist Church in America." This change waa made by avote of 154 to 63, but muat be ratified by the annual conferencea. For the first time in the history of the General Conference a woman was allow ed to speak upon the fioor at Asheville last week. By unanimous consent, Miss BelleBennett, secretary of the Woman's Home Mission Society, was invited to address the delegates on the right of women to sit in councils of the church, and for equal rights with the laity. The memorial from the Woman'o Home Mission Society requesting that the rights of the laity be granted to the women of the church was defeated by a vote of 74 to 188. PERPLEXING MARITIMECONDITIONS Hia veasel held 15 daya by oyater plantera of Mathewa county, Va., Capt. Ashton, of the schooner William Oliver, is wondering what are the rights of the Government over navigable waters of the Cheaapeake. The Oliver loaded part cargo of lumber on East river for Baltimore and dropped down about one mile and anchored in the channel near Long Point on May 5th. Without be? ing nolified to move his anchorage two men came on board with an attachment, which demanded $250 fordestroying the oyster beda of Joseph F. Foster. The ornciala remained on board in charge while Capt. Ashton went toNor folk and reported the caae to the Fed eral authorities. There he waa adviaed to pay no fine, but at the aame time the Federal officials did not volunteer to aa aiat him out of trouble. Returning to the vesse! he was met by Capt. D. B. Jonea, of Cambridge, Md., owner of the vessel. The caae wa8 tried at Mathews Courthouse, and the compromise was that the owner pay $35, which waa done, and the veaael allowed to proceed. Capt. Ashton, who pay8 and feeds hia crew, with expenaea to Norfolk aeeking ad nce, ia nearly $200 out by his experi mce with Virginia oyater farmers. Baltimore Sun. HALLEY'S HUMBUG. The comet haa disappointed all, even the scientiats. School girls make fun of it, and allude to it as "Calley'a Homet," "Halley's Comic," and auch aacriligioua terma. The Richmond Newa Leader dispoaea of it as followa: "Of all diaappointing, overrated, overadvertiaed humbugs, the late Mr.' Halley'a far-famed comet is the limit. With more than half the world upset for montha and on the edge of expecta tion?notto mention some anxiety?it came limping in Saturday evening, a miserable, disreputable little tallow candle affair without any tail. A Japa neae lantern in a pine tree would have looked more dignified, more attractive, and infinitely more respectable. The pejple who were frightened muat feel positively fcailly. The amall boy who could not take a little damp powder and get up a better exhibition on Chriatmaa eve, and 'produce aomething more dangeroua and attractive than this comet, ought to be apanked. The icientiata should be thoroughly ashamed )f themselves. Their wretched comet a not fit to put in a little girl's doll >aby houae. It's a 'fake.'" CR1SP NEWS.
