iiiiiil (Ei?erptk. ACCOMAC COURT-HOUSE, VA. Saturday, July S, 1S03. Entered at the Postofnce at Accoinac 0. H., Va., as second-class matter. President Cleveland has issued a proclamation calling Congress to? gether in extra session on August 7th. "Unwise laws which must be executed until repealed" has called for the exercise of that prerogative, and the tone and spirit of the procla? mation seems to indicate that a speedy remedy is demanded for the finan? cial evils under which the country is suffering. The action of the Presi? dent is by no means unexpected, as it has long been known that he has attributed the financial stress to which the country has been subject? ed to the Sherman Act and has therefore favored its repeal. His delay, in the matter, it is stated, was for the country to be enlightened as to the exigencies of the case and his uncertainty as to what Congress would do until public opinion had pointed out the line of duty which many mem? bers of Congress should follow. ...

A.OCOMAC COURT-HOUSE, VA. Saturday, July 22, 1893. Entered at the Postoffice at Accoiuac C. IL, Va., as second-class matter. The friends of the candidates for Governor are daily giving estimates of the chances of their favorite fox success, and accepting their figures as correct, each has a brilliant, pros? pect of being victor in the fight. The followers of O'Ferrall, in support of their claim, point to the fact that their candidate not only is far in the lead in the race but assert that suffi? cient pledges have been received to swell his number of delegates to 840, more than is necessary to give him the nomination. The Tylerites say that the strongholds of O'Ferrall have been heard from and giving figures which they claim are reliable, allege with equal certainty that Tyler will go to the convention with S50 delegates for him. The friends of Buford with more modesty assert that neither of the candidates will be masters of the situation when the convention meets, but that their ca...

PEARY'S SLEDGE JOURNEY. EtoB90Bfl For Considering It a Mo6t Bo markable Performance To the Editor of Tho Sun: Sin?In yoar Issue of this morning you speak of Lieutenant Peary V famous sledge trip as being tho loosest over performed by two men with a dog team. Is uot this an error? Colonel W. H. Glider's trip across Siberia was much longer, and I understand from him that tho first 4,000 miles of it were accomplished with only tho aid of a single native. I do not write to dis? parage Ponxy, but certainly Ceosar should have bis own. David A. Curtis. Our correspondent has unintentionally misquoted The Sun. We did not 6ay that Peary's sledge trip was the "longest ever performed." What The Sun said ?was, "He made the greatest sledge journey ever performed by two men with a team of dogs, traveling on the ice cap as far as from this city to Omaha without o single advance cache of supplies." This of course is a matter of opinion. It is an opinion, however, that is sup? ported by leading autho...
