To lib on for kaon Lynn. Few Orbons on the Eastern Shore Havo fully appreciated the serious state of affairs in tie general Assem Bly on the Oyster question. One week ago it looked As if the Upland members who Are in Large majority in both adopt some Radical policy id dealing with to Lii great interest. The action of the House of delegates in appointing a special committee consisting of one from each congressional District to consider and report measures for increasing the Oyster Revenue with justly regarded As an indication that some drastic legislation would be enacted. The Eastern Shore representative seeing danger Alread. Went boldly and vigorously to work to win the reasonable men to senator Lecato s Wise and conservative d la. In this they were Nedeil by the most of the other Tidewater representatives. Senator Lecato in presenting his Bill to the Senate committee on fish Aud game last week made a Strong speech explaining the defects of the prese it Law and showing How these defects would be removed by the Bill of which lie is the patrol. Seua torpor Ris. Of Albemarle told your Corres prudent that senator Lecatou a speech was the Ablest he had Ever heard on the Oyster question and this seemed to be the opinion of All who had heard it. Last monday right the committee on the Chesapeake and its Tributa ties of which or. Charles Smith is an at. Which several of the special Oyster Revenue committee were present. Or. Smith exhibited a map of the Oyster grounds state and made a most instructive and convincing speech in which he advocated the adoption of senator Lecatou a Bill he was followed by major James n. Stubbs of Gloucester who made a telling speech in favor of the same Bill Hon. S. Wilkins Matthews who is known As one of tie most industrious and influential members of the House was on hand and though he made no set speech yet by Bis Perti. Deut questions and suggestions lie brought out Many important Points. As a result of these efforts it is now Rea on ably certain that senator be Cuton a Bill will with slight amendments be Eua eted into a Law before tie close of the present session. That so great a danger has thus been averted from Tidewater Virginia Aud Especial i y from the Eastern Shore is due to the wisely directed efforts of our Eastern Shore representatives assisted by such Liberal and conservative members As senator Stubbs of Gloucester senator Morris of Al. Lemarle. Senator Adam Clement of Campbell and delegates Owen of Manchester Watkins of Price Edward Saunders of Franklin and others. The people of the Eastern Shore owe their representatives and the gentlemen named shove a lasting debt of gratitude for having wrought such a change of sentiment in the oys ter question among the Upland i eau Bers of the general Assembly. But for their persistent and Well directed efforts some very Radical and hurtful legislation would have been enacted but every indication now Points to tie adoption of senator Lecato s Bill which will place this great Industry under the control of a Board of fisheries consisting of five members two from Tidewater Aud three from the other sections of the state. So much for retaining in the legislature True and tried Man who have the influence to direct legislation in the interest of the people whom they represent. Or. Matthews has put through Bis truck barrel Bill and he is now at work on Bertral Bills for the interest of his constituents. Or. Smith has also succeeded in getting through a number of Bills and he has introduced one to break up trusts Aud combines that is of the greatest interest to the entire state. It is Safe to say that no Section of Virginia has a More industrious and influential delegation in the general Assembly than the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Brutus.
