Farmers Mutual Exchange. At a meeting of the Board of directors of the Farmers Mutual Exchange held at its main office on tuesday May 21st, 1912, it was or dered that a general meeting of the stockholders of the Exchange be held at Exmore va., on thursday May 30, 1912, on arrival of midday trains for the following purposes to wit there is every indication that con Gress will pass a joint Resolution providing fora constitutional Amend ment restricting the presidential ten ure of office to a single term of six years. The Prospect does not please third termer Roosevelt who designates the idea As but a poll of both houses shows an overwhelming majority favourable to such restriction. The sentiment is shared by a Large mass of sensible citizens who Are alarmed at the possibility of the establishment of a third term precedent the natural sequence of which would be a fourth fifth and sixth term or a life tenure of office. The National humiliation we Are suffering from the barnstorming performances of a president and sex president of the United states is a potent influence in shaping senti ment favourable to a condition which will make such exhibitions impossible in the future. The revelations of the two aspirants for the Republican nomination As to the use of Federal patronage in dictating the nomination of a successor help the movement along. There is objection in some quarters to lengthening the office to six years but very Little aside from the natural diffidence of Teddy to the proposition of eliminating All danger of Casar ism. In support of the proposed change it May be said that Many of the Republic s fathers strongly favored just such a restriction in the making of the Constitution. Exactly How it failed to become incorporated in the document is not quite Clear. From time to time numerous presidents and statesmen including Thomas Jefferson James Madison and an Drew Jackson have favored such an amendment As is now proposed. In these Days of insane ambition and unscrupulous methods to consummate it there is stronger need than Ever before existed to erect a constitutional bulwark that will save this Republic from treading the path of Rome. Is. To take action on the plan of reorganization of the Exchange and the settlement of the indebtedness of the Exchange due shippers on the basis of 50% in Cash 40% in preferred Stock and 10% in common Stock. The $50,000 Stock Issue heretofore ordered by the Board has been subscribed and provided for except $15,000, which amount is being raised. 2nd. To provide for the election of general and local officers direct ors agents inspectors Etc., for the present year. 3rd. For the consideration of any and All other matters properly before the meeting. All stockholders and All persons interested in the reorganization and continuation of the Farmers Mutual Are urged to be present. F. A. Shield secy and treas. Resolutions. Resolutions adopted by Chincoteague Baptist Church a Rev. C. Kelly Hobbs has resigned the pastorate of our Church and is now Pas tor of the second Baptist Church of Alex Andria va., where he served As pasto be fore coming to this Field. He has served us for two years and five months and in that time has endeared himself to each and every member of this Church and to the Community generally. His work among us has been wonder fully blessed of god in the salvation of souls and in the up building of Christian character among the Church members. Unity and Harmony prevail in our midst due to the untiring and faithful leadership of our pastor together with the co opera tion of the Church As a body. In brother Hobbs we find the combined qualities of an excellent preacher and faithful pastor. He knew his people in their Homes and they Ever found him a consecrated Christian gentleman always about his master s business. In consideration of the affection and esteem in which he is held by us therefore be it resolved first. While we Are deeply grieved Over the loss of brother Hobbs for we feel that our Church is stronger and More United than at any time in its history yet we submit to same knowing there is also a great work for him else where. Second. That in the going of brother Hobbs this Church realizes that she has lost an Earnest energetic worker a kind neighbor a faithful Friend and a Man of god. Third. We most heartily commend brother Hobbs and family to the sympathy Confidence and affection of the Alex Andria saints feeling that our loss is their gain and praying that the richest Blessing of god May rest upon their Mutual labors. Fourth. That a copy of these resolutions be furnished brother Hobbs As a re minder of our esteem for him that they be placed on record in our Church Book and that they be published in the Relig ious Herald and the Peninsula Enterprise.

I the House has adopted a joint Resolution providing for an amendment to the Constitution to permit the elec tion of United states senators by direct vote of the people. The Resolution had already passed the Senate and now All that remains is the for Mal signing of the instrument by the president and the issuance of a proclamation to the states to signify their wishes on the proposed change. The amendment will have to be Rati fied by three fourths of the states to become effective. Therein lies the possibility of defeat. The Southern states do not take kindly to the amendment to the original Resolution which gives the Federal govern ment supervision of elections. The danger of negro domination assisted and encouraged for partisan reasons by the party which loudly boasts that it i freed the niggers is no Idle dream in the Southland. They have not yet forgotten the horrors of reconstruction Days and they shudder at the thought of possibilities of a repetition even in a lesser degree. There was no necessity for the sen ate amendment and if it was put in for the deliberate purpose of defeat ing popular election of senators no More Subtle joker could have been contrive. The democratic convention of Virginia opened at noon thursday in Norfolk with James r. Caton of Alexandria temporary chairman j. N. Brenniman of Richmond temporary Secretary and e. Cunningham of Norfolk temporary ser Geant at arms.

Congressman James Hay was elected permanent chairman. According to the latest advices eight delegates at Large will be elected to the Baltimore Conven tion,vi4 senator Martin and Swan son governor Mann and Congress Man flood of the organization Harry St. George Tucker Richard e. Byrd r. Tate Irvine and Alfred b. Williams Wilson men. The returns from the presidential primary in Ohio indicate that col. Roosevelt won Over president Taft by a plurality of 25,000, and will have 32 of the 42 District delegates selected. The result Means says Roosevelt that Taft is out of the race and that he will be the next nominee of the Republican party for president. Taft on the other hand claiming 570 delegates to the Chicago convention or 30 More than enough to assure him the nomination says that Victory is not Only in his grasp but that to make Assurance doubly sure will tour new Jersey to get some More delegates. It is immaterial though As to which is the win Ner As the democrats will elect the next president of the United states whether the republicans nominate Taft or Roosevelt. The Southern Baptist convention at Oklahoma City decided to raise $1,000,000 for foreign Mission educational work in commemoration of the Centenary of Adoniram Judson the Pioneer Baptist missionary who sailed from America for India in 1912.
