The following report in the times Dis Patch of the proceedings of the democratic committee of governor Mann s county of Nottoway at the recent meeting called to make provision for a primary is sufficient to convince everyone even a former attorney general of Virginia if he was not one of the ring that there is ring Rule in Virginia politics Crewe va., August 9.�?a meeting of the democratic county committee was held at Nottoway yesterday and the question of whether republicans who pledged themselves to support the nominees of the Democrat a ticket should be allowed to vote was the occasion of much discussion. The committee was largely divided but it was finally carried that they should be allowed to vote. This seems to be the first time in Virginia that a democratic committee has undertaken by party action to let republicans participate in their party councils. The vote thus stood 17 to 12 in favor of the republicans. After this vote w. Jeffrey offered a typewritten list of judges and Derks for the primary at Crewe As county. Four members out of the five committeemen at Crewe precinct asked the privilege of nominating judges and clerks for All of the precincts As has been the custom heretofore. This request was voted Down. 1 the report shows too not Only that there is a ring in that county but exposes some of the methods by which they propose to strengthen it. In the same Way judges and clerks have been named in other counties by a the everyone in fact is a qualified voter with the machine that is willing to do the bidding of senators Martin and Swanson flood and r. E. Byrd known throughout the state As the Quot big four Quot that parcels out the offices in the state among those Only who speak the language of the tribe. Says the virginian Pilot what a the object is of letting republicans participate in a democratic nominating contest Jay be one thing or another neither legitimate. It May be to give the ring candidates the assistance of Republican votes or it May be to furnish a plausible explanation of a total vote larger than the democratic electorate would account for.

An analysis by the Virginia democratic league of the signatures to the petition in favor of senator Martin published in the Richmond papers some weeks ago shows that of the total number who signed sixty Nice of a them were liquor dealers and that the name of no minister of the gospel appeared on the petition. The reason for the failure of the ministers to sign is not Given but other ministers have spoken in the matter who doubtless voice the sentiments of the most of them through the state and to the effect that in the fight against fhe machine of which or. Martin is the head that a moral Issue is involved unfavourable to the machine and they Are therefore against it the ministers of Richmond probably refused to sign the petition for the same reason. The analysis showing As it does that the liquor interests Are with a the machine of course causes no Surprise but is of interest in this instance As the machine of late has been making an Effort to show that it had no interest in liquor legislation. The analysis is Only another proof of the fact that the Bosses who control the machine have no scruples As to the methods to be used by them in deceiving the people.
