ROAN ?E, VA., WEDNES L FOR HARMONY IN VIRGINIA. Congressman Walker's Scheme for Republican Supremacy. Washington, Nov. 0.?Congressmen Yost anil Walker, ot Virginia, were in the city yesterday and called nt the Post office Department upon matters relating to their districts. Both discussed the re? cent election in their St'<te. "In view of the fact that the Republi? can ticket polled 50,000 votes," said Mr. Yost, "it seems to me that the Lynch burg convention has been* vindicated. Thirty thousand of these votes were cast In the white districts, which shows an overwhelming preponderance of senti? ment on the part of tlio white voters. "We know, of course, that the negroes were tohl not to vote the McCaull ticket, and we know also that we had every thine to contend against?the machine, the ad? ministration, and the iuiluenco of pa? tronage. The result, however, shows what might have been done if the party had been united in a fitmt against the Democrats." Congressman Walker says that the time lias come when the Republican party iu Virginia ought to wipe out factional lines. "We have had our light before electioo," said he, "and now let us get together." "And how is this to be accomplished?" "My scheme would be to hold a con? vention. Let us refer the whole thing back to the people. If a majority of the Republicans of Virginia are satisfied with the Agn?w committee, let them say so in convention. If they want to retain the Wickham committee, they ought to be alTorded the oppattunity to do so, but;if they want uelther, they can name an en? tire new committee and a new chairman in the convention. "For ope, I will be willing to abide by the verdict of such a gathering. All that I want in harmony, and if I happen to be on the minority side I will gladly yield my personal preference to the wis? dom of the majority. If the lenders on both sides would agree to let the people settle the dispute and then abide by the decision we would all net together and be In splendid fighting shape for the next campaign."

Decision of Judge Jackson as to Tenure of Office. APPOINTEES under civil SER? VICE Law have a right in EQUITY to THEIR PLACES, WHICH they need NOT SUR? RENDER save FOR CAUSE. Chicago, til., Nov. 0.?A special to the Times-Herald from Martiusburg?W. Va., pays: Judge John J. .lacksou banded down n decision to-day, which holds that a transfer cannot without trial he made under the civil service law, beceuse it Is equivalent to removal. Judge Jackson insists that the appoint? ment of a man to Federal position under tho civil sorvico laws gives him a right in equity to tho place,which he is"uot forced to surrender, save for cause. Judgt Jackson remarks in his docu ment that the leaving of discretionary powers in tho hands of tho heads of de? partments makes civil service a dead let? ter. Ho rules that tho civil service law is entirely constitutional. His second finding is that Congress hns never delegated to the President and tho commission legislative power. His third point declares that the inter? nal revenue service has heou placed un? der the merit code, aad he holds that any attempt to change the position ami rank of ollicers in the civil service depart? ment Is a violation of the law. His dual holding is that tho court has a right in mu h a case, aud has tho juris? diction to restrain tho appointing power from removing the officers from their positions, if such removals are shown to ho in violation of the civil service act. He, therefore, orders that tho men who have been shifted from good salaried places to small salaried places should be reinstate J. The caso, which resulted in this opin? ion, was brought by a storekeeper in'tho internal revenue service. FRESH coun TRY BUCKWHEAT. good old kind just received at St. C'air Bros.

PRICE 3 CENTS FORAKER WON'T HELP. _ ? He Will Keep Out of Senator Hanna's Fight. BUT FORAKERITES WILL FIGHT HANN A TO THE END?PRESIDENT GARFIELD'S SON MAY ENTER THE SENATORIAL RACE. Cleveland, Ohio, Nov. 9.?The revolt of the auti-Hannaites received n great impetus, whoa the follow'ng statement was made by b'enator .T. 13. Foraker: ''The campaign of 1897 ended with me on last Tuesday. So long as we were fighting a common enemy I save my en tiro^timn and strength to the cause. I supposed a Republican legislature meant tho election of Senator Hannn. and not? withstanding what I see In tho newspa? pers still think so, but if there should he a contest among Republicans I would not have anything to do with it, unless something untorseen shou'd occur to change my mind.1' The statement is generally undetstood to mean that Senator Foraker tvtil not interfere to cause tho Foraker men who have jnst been elected to vote for IIanna. There is no doubt but that if Seue.tor Foraker said tho word they would vote for Hanna, hut without Foraker's dicta? tion they aro more than likely to vote for any other than McKinloy's friend. Ex-Chairman Kurl/, is very wroth at Hanna and several of his warm friends are members-elect of tho legislature. Nothing more unlikely can bo imagined than that Kurtz will do anything to help elect Hanua. Tho junior Senator's antagonists are doing everything in their power to awaken opposition to his election, and to-day they sprlug the names of .fames R. Garfleld, ex-State senator, and son of tho muraorod President, as a candidate to succeed Senator 11 an "a. Tho Garfleld boom is not large, yet in northern Ohio young Garfleld has a very strong follow? ing, and he has no enemiesiu tue Repub? lican party. Representative Harry E. M.ison, who, with Senator W. E. Burke and-Represen? tative Brandoy, represent -the. Foraker faction on tho legislative delegation from this county, says: "There is no reason why we should vote for Hanna. Ho fonght us openly at the primaries and gave us no support at the election. There ate cignt other mem? bers of tho general assembly who feel as we do. It Is doubtful if they have deter? mined to vole for Hanna." Without the votes of the Foraker mem? bers Hanna cannot bo elected. Congress mnu T. E. Button, whom Bushnel1 wanted to appoint at tho time he ap? pointed Hanna to succeed Sherman, is also diseussed as a Senatorial possibility, and the Foraker peoplo here think ho will accept a nomination.
